The Bizarre, Incoherent Contradiction of 'the Pandemic of the Unvaccinated'
"A dawned on me as john. Edwards wrote this terrific piece in the new york post about the incoherent bizarre contradiction. You do realize that the whole point in calling this the pandemic of the unvaccinated the whole point insane we've gotta protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated. The whole point of the poor little old lady shrieking at me in the elevator the other day because she's got her mask on and i don't and she's vaccinated is that they don't believe in the effectiveness of the vaccine. That's the dirty little secret. They don't believe the vaccine works. And frankly with all the cases rising. I can understand people thinking that now. What we got to remember is if you're vaccinated. You're not likely to wind up in the hospital. If you get covert and you're vaccinated. That's the point of the vaccine was to prevent severe illness and death. And if you accept the ninety nine percent number. The people of the people dying from kobe today. Ninety nine percent of them are unvaccinated. You may not accept that number and that's okay you get to accept you can reject accept whatever you want to accept if you agree that most people who are dying of cogan are unvaccinated than that should give you some comfort in believing that the vaccine works but not joe biden as john says. How do you start out. Saying i'm going to protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated but don't worry fully vaccinated. People are incredibly low risk. This is a cluster. This is a disgrace.
Two Americas Suggest 20-25% of Americans Hate the Country Right Now
"John Edwards was right. But for the wrong reasons, there are two Americas right now. We saw it again this weekend. And, sadly, folks, there's no middle ground. You see in those diagrams, you overlapping circles all the time. They believe in this. They believe in this and they overlap and you see, this is what they share their beliefs in the middle. Sadly, those two Americas those circles never intersect anymore. We have I don't want to overestimate the number. But I'd say roughly 2025%. Maybe even hopefully a little lower. I hope could be higher, but I hope it isn't I hope it is lower. But 2025% of the country that just hates the country right now. Not really hate it. They're not Bs ng. They're not lying. They're not spinning your wheels. They legit hate the country. They want you to believe the country is systemically racist. Although the systems are claiming a racist to run by liberals, which I always found paradoxical they apparently don't because they're too stupid to process it. The country's racist. It's irredeemable. It's full of oppressors and oppressed people. That the economy is engaged in class warfare, where only the successful can get ahead. Despite the United States, having one of the highest degrees of upward upward mobility anywhere in the world. They want us to emulate Scandinavian, Sweden, despite the fact that Sweden's Swedes in Sweden are worth less on average and Swedes in the United States. They just want you to put the police are out randomly shooting people that the police go to row calls every day. They sit there at the roll call, and they're like, Okay, how many black men are we going to hunt down? Tonight. They believe this happens. They it's It's insane. It's deranged. It's absolute lunacy. But they believe this. That's the one America Let's guess. 2025%. I pray it's lower. My fear is that it's higher

Karine Jean-Pierre: The History-Making Lesbian on Biden's Staff
"Is so much being said right now about the incoming administrations communication seem to also celebrate. Especially on this podcast. Is that two of the seven names that been announced so far are queer. Airspeed towbar and corinne jean pierre. We're going to have to queer women of color in the white house and leadership positions acting as the face and voice of our government. It's wild that think about and for that reason. I wanted to bring you this interview. That i did with corinne that originally aired on a luminary app. We spoke almost exactly a year ago. When corinn's book moving forward was first published. The message of book is that all of us no matter what you might think of as a typical background or story for politician. All of us have a police in politics. If corinne jean-pierre a queer woman of color who immigrated to the us as a kid can make it in politics. She says so can you. When we spoke corinne was also appearing as a political analyst on nbc and msnbc. So you'll hear talk about that. As well as what she learned working for a wide wide wide array of politicians including john edwards anthony weiner and of course resident barack obama from the advocate magazine and partnership glad. I'm jeffrey masters. And this is lgbtq. And here's shop. Thank you for having me. Of course excited thank you. Let's jump in right that your story is not the typical political story. You're immigrant you're a woman or one of color you're a and that is not what we typically see in politics. Yeah and yet. I think it's easy to soon. That's changing with high profile examples. Like alexandria ocasio cortez omar and yet. Those are very much outliers right. Yes nor it is the norm and and like you were saying. I walk in so many different communities if you will like i present so many different communities and that was one of the parts of writing this book i wanted to. I think people get really afraid when a here politics and getting into politics or getting involved and so that's one part of it and they think the other part of it is that people always ask me even young people. They ask me all the time. I teach at columbia university. So i have young people taking my class yearly. And they say how did you get here. How did you get into the white house. Like how did you work in politics and get a different presidentials. So the purpose of the book is also to show. There's not one path and also as a person of color gay person a woman an immigrant. I wanted to show people who are all. Those things are one of those things like. Hey you know she did it. I can do it too. So i lay that out in a very detailed way. You know as an immigrant. I grew up being told. Oh you're going to be one of those three professions doctor lawyer or engineer. And that's i think anybody who's listening in. I grew up in an immigrant. Family could understand that and that didn't work out. I talk about that in the book. And then i talk about. I didn't get into politics until my mid twenties. And so but you're right. there's representation matters and there's not a lot of representation. Even now there are like aol see as you just mentioned others kind of outliers. It's still a very small percentage of women of color of people from different identities that are more diverse that's in the political arena. So the hope is that can encourage inspire people to not be afraid of the word politics And to just get involved because the way you make change is if you get involved you're yourself and you know watching tv even though you don't mention being gay every time it is a part. It is no secret nearly no. I've been out for a long long time. Yeah and i think that's something that is easy to see about you. Bring that up because i. I think there's a tension between you bring. Being gay does not need to come up in every conversations right. Yeah and yet. I think it so powerful to know that there is escape on tv. Like i also want you to for. He never really. I'm so glad you brought that up. Because i think about that sometimes because i'm like i'm out. It's not hard to know that. I'm that i'm out. I talk about my daughter. I talk about my partner in interviews. And it's out there but i don't lead with that you know it's like it's part of my multiple identities. I have multiple identities at so. It's a very interesting kind of way to be in the space and it's actually kind of funny when people are like. I didn't know you were gay. And i'm like how do you not know i'm gay. I've been out for a long time the like. Wow and so it's just. It's funny. But i am aware of it. I am conscious of it. I want to respect all of said all of the communities i represent in. Were you to bring it up every episode out. Say like oh my god. She brings every time he was like. What's wrong receiver. Don't bring up at like one like she didn't bring yeah. It's like you. Yeah yeah it's over. I don't know how people like majority of people feel about it. But i i just want to lead with my experience and kind of my smart. There's a reason at this table and everything else just complements me.

Should we support the individual mandate?
"Today we're going to be talking about the individual mandate, which is a very wonky policy term for the the requirement that you buy health care, which was included in the Affordable Care Act Now to me like the individual mandate is one of the most bizarre and like fascinating Windows onto American politics, which one that will explain like the strangeness and bizarreness of it. But it's also like timely because of two big things like there's basically two major events happening in politics right now, right? There's Supreme Court nomination the Supreme Court could potentially be tipped way to the right and then we have this you may have heard. We have an election coming up like news news alert. There's an election coming up and the many ties into both of these things. Cuz a lot of people are wondering will this new conservative Court overturn the Affordable Care Act and it turns out the individual mandate is like at the center of that legal wage. And then there's also the issue of what happens if Democrats retake Congress and the presidency, what are they going to do? Because essentially the Mandate was eliminated off or they pulled the teeth out of it a couple of years ago when they're still Republican Congress and you know are Democrats going to reinstate it. What's going to happen either a good or a bad thing. Let's get into it. That's what I introduce Our Guest sure. So we're welcoming to the podcast today. You can camp our old friend Egan who is the health care policy Advocate at public citizen. Happy Halloween again. Hey, thanks so much for having you guys. Can we get you a better like sexier tighter than helpful? Yeah, maybe Health Care policy Champion something like an upgrade. We're going to work on that. Yeah, exactly. So my first question on this episode about the individual mandate is what the hell is a name. No, mandate and specifically how is it different from a text? Yeah. So an individual mandate at its most basic is the idea that you have to have health insurance. And if you don't have health insurance, there's some sort of penalty and so it's it's different from attacks in that. It's it's what you would end up paying if you didn't actually get health insurance. So if you have a health insurance, you know your page whatever your health insurance is, but if you don't have any health insurance, then it's whatever the taxes which is generally going to be less than the cost of your health insurance. But it means you're also not getting anything and you don't actually have health insurance coverage off. Yeah Best of Both Worlds really is being uninsured and then being fine on top of it. So a lot of people who have been, you know, following this at all, the Affordable Care Act may know that at this moment back in general the Republican party is opposed to the individual mandate considers it this tax this requirement to buy insurance is like an infringement on our personal Liberties and in general the Democratic party has wage. In favor of it saying it's you know, what makes the Affordable Care Act work. It's personal responsibility out of data, but it was not always so is the can you give us a little wage of like where did this idea come from? How long has it been kicking around for? Yeah. So an individual mandate is is sort of a conservative way of getting people health care. I mean as you know, we're on the way better care for all health care. Now, that's a much more sort of progressive guarantees access to health care for folks. Whereas just an individual mandate really the idea. There is that you want people to have health insurance and insurers are scared that if folks wait until they're sick and then just buy coverage. That means that they're only going to get the insurers are only going to make money while people are sick, which means they're actually going to have to pay out more and so they want them to be paying all those premiums ahead of time so that they're making their their their profits as they go we would hate for insurers not to make enough profit off. Yeah. Yeah, I mean that's it's something that appeals has appealed to Republicans and Democrats over the years and the health insurance industry gives pretty pretty heavy handily to them both. And so it's not it's not surprising that both parties at different times would would be in favor of it. Yeah, so we're from Massachusetts Ground Zero for ObamaCare actually, as you may know the first real life iteration of Obamacare was of course the Massachusetts Health reform, which was passed on a sort of a bipartisan basis under a republican Governor Mitt Romney who pioneered the idea under what is sort of a Democratic Leadership. If you're familiar with Massachusetts state politics, you know that it's just Democrat has used lightly hear President Bush, of course also expressed really strong support for the idea of a mandate a coupled with the marketplace. So if you think about the ACA as being the three legs two of those legs and Marketplace for health care, and then the idea of the Mandate are like major conservative ideas right there and then you know Obama, you know running for the Democratic primary to be John Edwards and Hillary Clinton. He probably thought he needed to be at least a little bit to the left of the Republican Governor, you know, Romney's Health Care policy although both Clinton and Edwards. Endorse the individual mandate in the primary. So they're apparently cool with running on the Republican policy. I guess the question is how did the Democratic solution you know, we have two of the three major candidates in the 2008 primary running on a republican Health reform. Like how did that Democratic solution become like a personal responsibility? Yeah. It's a great question and it's one that sort of speaks to some of the challenges that I think we're going to face under a potential Biden Administration the idea that if you ought to have sort of a National Health Care system that medicare-for-all that's much easier for folks to sort of get their heads around but if you have right now our system is sort of based on various fragments. There's your basic Private health care. There's Medicare for seniors. There's Medicaid for low-income folks. And so this it felt it seemed like Democrats were less afraid of sort of tinkering with it. System trying to make some way of expanding coverage. They were more afraid of sort of taking on, you know insurers and hospitals directly. And so they figured the the easiest way out was to sort of take personal responsibility option try to attack on a new private insurance system and hope that it ended up covering people as we saw there were some coverage games but the gaps in the system that made way too many people still falling through

"And then I was reading from national if you're just going through a David French's points that he was making David French is, you know, a big critic of Trump at times. And he writes. A former attorney cooperation is the key. This is the most obvious point. It's basically the four points. He makes the points. We make all the time. You got to follow the evidence the evidence is what the evidence is that. What matters you said and cooperation of witnesses ios says Cohen testifies credibility increases when he can support his story with documents, and recordings or even other witnesses. If anyone else is willing to testify under oath in the same way to the same events. Even then Cohen's words take on new importance has narrative is only as compelling as his cooperation don't believe your own discernment. The absolute worst thing anybody can do when confronting the witnesses to believe that they have some sort of special insight into whether who was released in seer or credible. A man who has lied for a long time tends to be very good at line and the obvious giveaways or tells are more often the stuff of movies and real life. I've said into positions and watched a witness give performance fit. For an award season only to see them, reverse course, very quickly, and again convincingly after being confronted with clearly contradictory documentary evidence don't entirely believe arguments based on perceived incentives. Moretti hearing people say that Cohen will tell the truth tomorrow because he's trying to rehabilitate his image or because he's being idiot to risk more jail. Time Cohen is transitioning from a Trump loyalist and fix her to hero of the resistance. So there are incentives to lie or embellish and criminals are just the kind of idiots who think that they can get away even with the same crime. They've committed before. Incentives matter. But they are hardly credible and don't presume, you know, all the incentives in play. I'm cooperated testimony. However is entirely wordless. It's likely Cohen will say a number of things that he can't immediately cooperate. That doesn't mean. Those statements are lies. He may well tell the whole truth and nothing, but the truth, so we should discard a statements, but pay close attention or the uncooperative or assertions the most sensational and interesting that I'm dubious are the uncooperative assertions consistent in tone in nature with the rest of the testimony that I'm more curious. But no matter the nature of the testimony file it away in your mind cooperation or rebuttal can come later and from unexpected sources, given the necessity of cooperation to truly believe anything Cohen says I'm not expecting any true blockbuster revelations tomorrow, but a blockbuster revelation is different from a blockbuster assertion. We may get one or two of those use caution I expect tomorrow's testimony to produce more heat than light. Well, look you and I've said this already. If there are documents of because we heard he said, you know, for for example, he's got evidence for financial statements or check whatever it is. We we've heard that he paid them money for stormy Daniels right now, she said Cohen is the fact that. He's a convicted liar. Yes. The problem with Trump is he lied about that when he said, he didn't know about the stormy Daniel payments. We all know that memory said why do nothing collided that on his own. He said, no, we didn't. Nobody does. That was a that was immediately. When he said that that leads antibody to say, excuse me. You what are you talk? You. I did it out of his own pocket or out of goodwill, and you were never billed for it. And you bought it. And your attorney did something for you without your explicit permission or somebody spending your money without you knowing it as ex-, exactly. So as we said right there, and then we found out later on the Trump did know about it. And and so that was that's the whole point. You've got two sides than on that particular issue have no credibility. Both sides have no credibility. So that's the problem that you that you face at you know, at that point. But when you come to the crime, what is the crime to begin with? Not reporting a campaign donation, maybe if you look at John Edwards will no not from not from the John Edwards jury point of view. So you might have a federal crime, which is viewed as very low level crime to begin with that might be a campaign finance crime. Now, he says it it happened during the do while the president was president which means he cut him a check during his presidency. Now, how that will be viewed overall. I don't know and French didn't address that pours. Nobody's really addressed that portion of it. I don't know where that goes. At that point. If it's if Democrats start making are Democrats going to say, it's time to impeach based on a campaign finance violation. Well, and how did you even are you going to be able to qualify that? I guess as a campaign finance violation. Because if it was paid for and it depends. I guess we're the check came from at which account it came from. But so far the allegation has been that it was a gift in kind right something to benefit the candidate at the time anything to benefit his campaign is considered a gift, and you can't do that. So. Who made the decision for that check to be written during the campaign? And and if there was a check written after the campaign and after he became president. What is how does that qualify as campaign finance? And if and if you look at the John Edwards situation, there was actually money from other people that came in to pay off, right? At that point. It wasn't his own money. So you and again, they wouldn't the jury would convict him on on that. So in-kind means I use my own money to keep somebody quiet. Or anybody would do that? And the rest in the effort is to protect the the the candidacy and there and the rest is going to be I believe probably on cooperated where he says, you know, the, and it's not any crime. He's used racist language racist. Terms sort of that sort of fits a sensational narrative at that point. I'm trying to get back at him because that's the narrative that the left throws it,.
Michael Cohen House testimony: what to expect
"Today is the first of three days of hearings that involved Michael Cohen, aka the rat. At least according to his former boss, President Trump today. We've had L E Hoenig of CNN legal analyst to give us kind of a preview of what we're going to see and the importance of it. And if I can't Elliot can before even getting into the specifics to what degree are these genuine hearings? I mean, everything in Washington is so thoroughly partisan, you know, which way each side's gonna vote anyway, don't you? Well, they're genuine hearings, but they will assuredly be very partisan isle. There's not going to be a vote at the end of this. This is a factor gathering hearing. I come from the criminal courts where you operate with a strict set of rules of procedure and rules of evidence. And you have a judge jury. We're going to have none of that all of which I think will contribute to the circus like atmosphere that we're going to see you're going to see presidents longtime personal attorney basically open game for a group of partisan politics. Both ways and all have their agendas, and they will all be looking to score points. Well, let's look at how they do it. If I'm a Republican I turn around. And I say, why do you want to believe this guy? This guy's already been convicted. He's a convicted felon. Yeah. The Republican attack is going to be very predictable. It's going to be the same way that defense lawyers attacked cooperating witnesses at criminal trials. It's going to be he's he's a liar. He's an admitted criminal throw them out the window. The president's already done the Sarah Sanders issued a statement this morning that was the most predictable statement ever where she said exactly that about Michael Cohen. I think it would be a little bit more credible for people on both sides of say we'll see what he has to say. And we'll assess it, but when you're announcing before he spoken one word that nothing. He says is believable. I think you undermine your own credibility Democrats on the advising the Democrats. I would say don't embrace this guy. Don't try to make him out to be the messiah earn angel. He's none of those things he's badly flawed individual. He's an admitted criminal. These are the kind of witnesses. We used to build cases row when I was a prosecutor. But that's how the system works. And the thing that I would tell the Democrats to focus on his focus on the facts. I don't think we need to get into all the personal stuff every little peccadillo that Trump had facts and things that can be verified or proven with documents or other evidence. Understood. But as far as the evidence is concerned there. No rules on evidence. Right. You can put anything in. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it sounds like Michael Collins actually going to appear with documents. I don't know if he's been a briefcase and sort of pop them out. But correct. I mean regular court they would have to go through a process that the prosecutor would have to offer them into evidence. The judge would review it the defense would object. Another judge would say it's in out. There will be no such thing when Michael tomorrow. So it's going to be wild west. All right, there are three different meetings that are going to take place today. We've got the Senate intelligence committee tomorrow, the house oversight committee and then on Thursday, Adam shifts committee, the house intelligence committee of the three the one that would probably get the most attention and tell me if I'm wrong Elliott would probably be the one tomorrow. Because after all it's going to be the only public one hundred miles. We may get leaks and secondhand account of what's happening behind closed doors, knowing congress, I would expect that but gosh, I mean, Michael Collins going to be sitting now there's going to be. Cameras in his face. He's going to be answering questions directly from the committee members. It's going to be a show, and yeah, that's where all the attention is going to be it's going to be a show. And what meanwhile at the same time, you've got the president of the United States sitting down with Kim Jong UN in Vietnam. And they'll probably be a split screen, which one goes, I, you know, the president's going to not be able to help themselves from watching Cohen interesting. I think it's twelve hours different. So it'd be at Phnom. So I think the Coen if he devise all day that's going to be through the night in Vietnam. But I saw a report earlier today that somebody says the president's planning to stay up all night and watch Cowan, and we know he likes his cable news. So I believe that well as long as FOX's there. That's not a problem CNN. He criticized. I know CNN is yours. How how could he not love CNN because he had Jim Acosta? That's his favorite reporter, isn't it? Sure. But sometimes it's obvious. He's watching you'll see an anchor say something, and then they'll jump on and say fake news. Hey, you know, it's one more viewers with me we're talking with Elian Hoenig CNN legal analyst. Let's talk a little bit about what they're trying to figure out for one thing. It's fairly obvious people are gonna zero in on these two payments made to the two women to kind of make sure that they weren't part of the actual campaign. They get to the bottom of that. I think so I think Michael Cohen is going to have chapter and verse on that every cooperator and considering cooperator analogous to want somebody who used to be involved in criminal activity with the person there now testifying against there are things that cooperator was directly involved in. And there are things that are cooperator may have only known a little bit or piece about this is the former this is going to be he was right in the middle of making these hush money payments. He should be able to detail not just President Trump's involvement, but the involvement of other organs. -secutive Z evolvement of David pecker in the payment made to Karen McDougal. He should have chapter endorse on it. I'm expecting probably has documents that communications on that as well. Well, is there any question? I mean, let's be realistic. You really going to turn around and pay money to these two women? If it wasn't at the direction of the president. Why are you doing it? What do you have a charity there? Well, I guess the argument would be these were people who were looking out for my interests. And I was running a large campaign at the time. And I don't know everything everyone is doing I just know people are out there trying to protect me. But the trick there is the legal defense that we've heard this from the president and his legal team is dispute that these payments happened they say, but it wasn't connected to the election. It was connected to protecting the president from these what they call false allegations. But personal embarrassment family embarrassment, and that's an important legal point because when John Edwards. We're remember. John Edwards ran for vice president he was a Senator from North Carolina. He was charged with the very similar crime. He had paid hush money to his mistress. Who had he had a child with? He was tried for that. And he was acquitted on most charges and the jury hung out others because the key point is it's only a campaign finance. Violation. If the payment was designed in large part to protect the person election. And so Edward defense was no it was primarily intended to protect me and my family fucking delegation. It wasn't really election connected. Well, first of all John Edwards allegedly gives pecker the opportunity to say see we were real paper. We broke that story and number two John Edwards is different. Because in this case, what else would it have been used for other than a campaign thing? I mean, otherwise, why would Trumpcare about these women and the timing is so telling here because the alleged affairs happened many many years before and the payments are made just a couple of weeks before the election. So I think that's hard to explain I think Edwards. The timing was not nearly so clear, I think in fact, I think the payments continued after he was out of the campaign. So there was a better argument there that they were not related to the campaign and one of the other really good questions. You ask is the Trump or anybody else ever talked to you or your lawyers about the possibility of a pardon Michael comb. What do I say that I think that's important point? There's been indicators out there that the president has dangled a partners people like to put it to Roger stone to Paul Manafort, and you can see it in his tweets. Right. He tweets out at Manafort and stone a brave and they've gotten backbone because there's staying silent. Meanwhile, when Michael Cohen cooperates tweets calling him a latte, which I I take that a lot of offensive that having prosecuted real cases, I did mafia cases here in New York. And that's a term that gets people killed. I mean, that's what mob bosses say I've done cases where people murdered other people because they thought they were rats. So for the president of the United States to say that is way out of line. I guess it all boil down to the very end when he takes off his shirt and if he's got an actual full tattoo of Donald Trump. That may have to come off. There's a name for that. You know, what that would be called, namely,

"This morning, a embarrassing defeat. Really for Theresa May in yesterday's Brexit, vote two hundred thirty votes against her that is essentially the margin that Theresa May is now dealing with this morning as you. Those numbers mean nothing without context. What is it to lose by two hundred and thirty votes? Bring us the context it is the biggest defeat in all of parliamentary history. Wow, that's bad. Otherwise, you know, a lot of people listening here aren't parliamentary experts, and they don't know maybe losing by thirty s something that happens on a regular basis. Maybe that's once in a decade. You know, maybe that happens once every twenty years like the storms are seeing and Bavaria. No, this is something that's never happened before. No UK government has ever lost a vote by this much that it's participated in. Actually, there was one labor vote that was lost by two hundred ninety four to zero but the labor government instructed its MP's not to participate in that. Okay. So it was a walk walk over. So. Yes. Yes. All right. John edwards? She's going to be bringing us up to date in just a moment. Let's talk through these markets. However as we're seeing a little bit of a mix between risk on risk off. It pays this session. Sort of essentially what we've seen so far this week a European stocks on the front of the headline level the stock six hundred higher by about three tenths of one percent. We're seeing the tire by thought of one percent. But in recent minutes, we actually seen the dachshund Frankfurt going. Negative territory only by margin though at this stage, the Footsie-100 underperforming. Other European peers down by about eight tenths of one percent. Looking at the handover from Asia, we've seen a little bit of weakness overnight, but the Asia Pacific index actually shut up shop with well. Not a lot of movements essentially little changed at. That's where we all. We did see a little bit of weakness for Japanese says, but mainland Chinese says they've been coming back throughout the session on the Hang Seng rose by run about a quarter of a percentage point US futures pointing higher this morning s and p futures putting on of one percent as a look at that. Now, the ten year treasury yields higher by more than a basis points two point seven to three percent. That's why we're we're at when it comes to the FX space the Bloomberg dollar spot index coming under a little bit of pressure as well. The Japanese yen has been rising overnight styling, of course, in the spotlight after that Brexit vote it's holding. It's own though, won't spot twenty eight seventy two higher by about eight tenths of one percents. Amazing. How little sterling has moved. Don't you think? I mean such an incredibly. We essentially got. Yes, it was dramatic result. We got the result that we were largely expecting right or FX traders are just sitting on their hands because no one has any clue as to what's coming up next. Now, we do know that there's gonna be a vote of no-confidence this evening after that massive defeat Theresa May's Brexit EU withdrawal deal roundly rejected by a majority as we said at two hundred thirty m MP's. And now labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn is hoping to force a general election. I'm pleased that.

A federal judge in Texas said that the laws individual coverage mandate is unconstitutional and that because it was taken out in the tax Bill. The rest of the law must also fall. So we know the supreme court has already upheld key provisions of the Affordable Care Act on several occasions. But with new members, it is an open questions. What happens if and when this latest case goes all the way to the top. We'll have much more on this as the night days continue now back to the potential legal trouble for President Trump defenders of the president quick to compare questions over hush money payments to allege former mistresses Pharisee denies they. Compare it to the case of one person former Senator and presidential candidate John Edwards back in two thousand eleven Edwards was indicted on six counts related to allegations. He accepted illegal campaign contributions to cover up an extramarital affair and hide his mistress from the public. During the two thousand eight election. The president's allies have argued any possible case against the president would end like the Edwards case without a conviction. He was acquitted on one charge, and there was a hung jury on the others. But folks, look at this now and say hold on. This is serious stuff. This is the argument laid out in a Washington Post op Ed today, quote, the campaign finance violations here are among the most important ever in the history of this nation, given the razor thin win by Trump and the timing of the crimes very well may have swung a presidential election. Those words are from meal Kaci all the former acting solicitor general the Obama administration also George Conway critic of the president who is also the husband of Trump White House. Senior advisor Kellyanne Conway and Trevor Potter was appointed by former President George Hw Bush to lead the Federal Election Commission, a guy who knows a lot of the rules tied to campaign financing.

"Check those top constitutional law. Professor talking about money. And politics and Knicks podcasts pitchfork economics. But I go one more thing here on this story. Tape just came out of Donald Trump telling you about John Edwards case back in twenty eleven on television with Greta van Susteren. So in that case, he says, it's not a big deal either. So he's actually consistent on that. Right. But he's clearly told me about how John Edwards broke the law that was the context of that conversation. So when they say, well, he didn't know that it was illegal and John Edwards was a democrat and directed money to his mistress in the form of a hush payment effect election. Same exact thing here. And so Donald Trump commenting on no matter what he said as a as a expert or a guest on that matter clearly indicates he knows it is illegal again that's not a requirement. You don't have to know that murderers illegal in order to be held responsible for it. Okay. But still in this case, no matter what Fox News says it's very clear on the tape that Donald Trump knows that it's illegal not just wrong. Okay. All right. We're time in this segment. We got a lot more coming up, including. Conservative outlet goes under. We're not supposed to have shown, but it's too much fun.

Trump defenders draw comparisons to John Edwards
"Were not a campaign finance violation or crime Trump's saying, quote, number one, it wasn't a campaign contribution. If it were it's only civil and even if it's only civil there was no violation based on what we did. Okay. Trump's allies, including Senator John Kennedy at the top of this program. I've been picked to mention former democratic Senator and vice presidential nominee John Edwards when they're defending Trump on this issue. But the two cases seem to be far from the same. Jessica dean is out front. After the southern district of New York implicated, President Donald Trump in two federal election crimes surrounding hush money payments to two alleged former mistresses affairs, the White House denies Trump defenders have been quick to point to one person. John edwards? Look at the John Edwards case we to twenty eleven then failed democratic presidential candidate. And former Senator John Edwards was indicted on six counts related to allegations. He accepted illegal campaign contributions to cover up an extramarital affair and hide his mistress from the public during the two thousand eight election. Those trying to keep this mistake that I made from becoming public prosecutors alleged to wealthy donors gave Edwards over nine hundred thousand dollars in legal contributions to hide his relationship with real hunter who gave birth to his child. There's no question that I've done wrong. All twenty twelve. The case went to trial. A jury acquitted Edwards on one charge and was deadlocked on the other five the Justice department than decided to drop the case. Some Republicans have argued the potential case against Trump would be much like the Edwards case ending without a conviction. The question is then whether or not this so-called hush money is a crime John John Edwards, obviously was prosecuted for the same thing and Justice department failed but the former general counsel of the Federal Election Commission. Larry noble says there are major differences between the two cases you have Trump's attorney who seems to be willing to say that the purpose of these expenditures were for the campaign. Prosecutors have Michael Cohen saying under oath the payments were made to affect the outcome of the election. They had no such witnesses in the Edwards trial. President Trump tweeted the payments were a quote simple private transaction. But noble points to the timing of the payments as a key factor in determining intent where they made simply to keep the alleged affairs, private or to influence the outcome of an election. Hi, everyone Edwards affair occurred during the election with at least one of the payments being made to hunter after the election was over it showed that the payments were being made irrespective of the campaign. They're being made because John Edwards did not want his wife to find out about it. In contrast, the alleged Trump affairs happened years before the critical part of this was was it to affect the election was it for the purpose of influence in the election. They've said previously that oh, no it was about his business reputation. Well, then why didn't they pay a long long before he ran for office that makes it for campaign purposes? And one more thing to think about when it comes to the Trump supporters out there who say look to the Edwards case for guidance here. Larry noble told me remember, John Edwards was indicted. Now, ultimately, he was acquitted on one charge and on the other five it was a hung jury. But he was alternately prosecuted in this case, and right now, of course, no formal charges against the president will wait to see what's next from prosecutors. Aaron all right. Thank you very much.
