There will be a lame duck session after the election That may depend on whether they pass a bill Tio continuing resolution to finance the government that only lasts until December or not. But once Congress has adjourned essentially for the year, then the nomination dies, and they would have to be resubmitted. Now. If President Trump is re elected. That could happen.

Democrats block slimmed-down GOP coronavirus relief bill as hopes fade for any more congressional support
"Senate Republicans tried but failed to pass a $300 billion coronavirus relief package. Nearly all Republicans supported the measure but have failed to get the necessary 60 vote majority to advance. NPR's Susan Davis explains. Senate Republicans anticipated this outcome. But Senate Majority Whip John Thune told reporters it would show Republicans had a unified position that could potentially bring Democrats back to the negotiating table. Democratic leaders preemptively rejected the GOP bill, saying it doesn't go far enough to address pandemic related needs. House Democrats approved a more than $3 trillion bill back in May, but the White House opposes it and says it's unnecessary overreach with a stalemate over the cost and scope of the bill.

Coronavirus relief bill negotiations continue as benefits set to expire
"For more on the status of the next Corona virus relief package were joined by Bloomberg News Congressional reporter Eric Watson, Eric Watson, We heard. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged that his members air all over the lot on the next relief bill. How does that this unity compared to Democrats? And what does that mean? As these negotiations come down to the wire and relief program start to expire? Well, I think Nancy Pelosi to have speaker and Chuck Schumer Senate Majority leader Really looking at this is giving them leverage. You know, if the car can get 51 members on board, you know, he really is is not showing a lot of muscle a star being behind this proposal of closely highlight that in a late on Monday. I'm just saying that they're in complete disarray, and we are seeing evidence of that. There was a Republican lunch on Tuesday and a lot of numbers came out there. Not comfortable with the $1 trillion price tag there not comfortable with lot of Parisians in here, and I think they're really looking to re establish their sort of deficit hawks on the CDs that we saw Republican Party The Paul Ryan era before Trump came along the base itself. One remind viewers and listeners what's in that $1 trillion Republican plan, the Heels act as it's called, Yeah, it's really about eight part plan and it's got a lot of different moving parts to the main part of the are a direct famous stimulus of $1200 per person making up to 75. Dollars that is almost exactly modeled on the March proposal that went out of most Americans was also an extension of the settlement. Unemployment insurance benefits, But not these six. Another level that we're seeing currently would lower to about $200 for two months and then have states come completed complex calculation to figure out And make sure people only getting a maximum 70% of their previous wages and status. It is difficult to implement that bill would give him another two much waver if they're having trouble also build more money for, you know, testing for education. 2/3 of the $70 billion for education tied School's reopening and Democrat Tristan. This is using a stick approach, and Trump is endangering the welfare of Children. It's really seeing that and plus their liability protection. This is Mitch McConnell's top Ah, ah, asking. This is to protect businesses from lawsuits if they reopen the coronavirus, and that's what he's going to be interesting on in any final. Billy's reiterated that again this week. And why is it his top? Asked. He made sure to emphasize that today it was the one part of the program that he briefly brought up after that Senate lunch that you that you attended in reporting on very closely aligned with the Chamber of Commerce. Half of Republicans, This is business concerns. A really raising this worry about trial lawyers coming in and making ah little money off a class action lawsuits and so forth things. They also an impediment to re opening businesses are concerned. With Jim Louie Vito are or regular office of having people see that they were less likely to tipping hired workers pass that his point of view that is diagnosis of the current situation, Democrats say Instead, let's have OSHA. Let's have the Occupational safety and Hazard. I'm sorry Health Administration come up with a strong standard of clear standard and you know companies get through. They could cite that they're complying with OSHA standards. You know, it is providing protective equipment and barriers and other social distancing measures. And that would solve the problem. I think you have some kind of compromise here. But there's big elements. This proposal from Republicans of shifting lawsuits from the states where torture normally handled to the federal government. And Democrats are loath to do that you mentioned compromised. Democrats air pushing their $3.5 trillion Heroes Act was passed in the house back in May 208 votes to 199 votes. Republicans, of course, pushing this $1 trillion plan, but it was Senate Republican Conference chairman John Thune, who today said I think there's a lot here to agree on. Where could be the lines of agreement? Well, it's it's officially if you have got two numbers here, and it's going to end up somewhere in between. That's what you know what Republicans are nervous about. You know, they're saying, we're start. Our opening day is not zero. It's one trillion is going to end up two trillion or more fear on that from Republican side. I think Democrats are hopeful. There are things in their provisions in there, bill, whether it's an Internet or water that probably could be tightened, taking care of elsewhere that's often been talked about today potential. Deal later on with Trump, especially, he's realized about infrastructure. So, um, it would be a priority for the bride administration, and he has the only thing that they can do and deal with later. They're more nice to have and have tohave. I think for Democrats really won the key one that's missing in that Republican president nearly $1 trillion for state and local governments. You know when the shutdown happen, revenue really dried up for a lot of these local and state governments, and there's they're facing the possibility of millions of people being laid off in the public sector. So Democrats are pushing out their top ask and, you know, I don't know if Republicans are hard, fast against that. Maybe there's a compromise there

No sign of end to standoff over Trump impeachment trial
"And now to the impeachment debate here in Washington the Senate Republican leader is accusing house speaker Nancy Pelosi and what he is calling shamelessly game playing those comments from senator McConnell came after the speaker again stated she does not plan to send articles of impeachment of the Senate until seeing proposed rules for trial a president trump the continuing standoff between the speaker and the Senate Republican leader focusing on the president's conduct toward Ukraine comes as the president addressed the nation on the hostilities with Iran a crisis that is now over shadowing the impeachment drama from the Senate floor Republican John Thune of South Dakota but as a very straightforward process one as I said that met with the approval of all one hundred senators both Democrats and Republicans back in nineteen ninety nine the Clinton president is seems to me at least to be a fair way in which to proceed and and won that Senate Republicans have agreed to move forward with soul if and when the house Democrats under speaker Pelosi determine that they are ready to send those articles over here seems like maybe they're waiting for something to rescue what I think is an otherwise fairly weak argument that they have to make but when those articles arrive here we will have a process in place in which to move forward and and and get this trial under way in the Senate and hopefully hear the arguments and at some point in I hope in the not too distant future I conclude this and get it behind us in on to the work that the American people I think sent his here to do obviously there is an election coming up in November the first of all we'll start being cast just a few weeks from now in the state of Iowa and New Hampshire and other states followed very closely on by super Tuesday so the election process is already under way and I think that is the means by which most Americans believe we ought to deal with our leadership and in a democratic system of government we have the opportunities people to express our opinions and the voice argues in that manner and I would hope that that is where we can settle these political differences industries that we have that from Republican John Thune of South Dakota on the Senate floor the hill newspaper reporting a democratic senators are quote growing impatient over the delayed start of the impeachment trial some saying it's time for speaker Pelosi to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate in fact this from democratic senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut telling The Washington Post yesterday quote I think the time is past we should send the articles over reacting to all of that the house democratic caucus chair Hakeem Jeffries of New York sorry say has no the resolution going to like what do you gain by waiting for one of our as speaker has consistently indicated it's very difficult for her to determine who would be appropriate impeachment managers to present the house's case in the absence of understanding the rules of engagement and what the contours of a trial would look like beyond of course chairmanship and chairman Nadler who one would think we're going to be logical choices and participants to lead the effort but what we have seen over the last several weeks all the additional disclosure of documents that continue to highlight that the president did abuse his power by targeting an American citizen for political gain while withholding intentionally three hundred and ninety one million dollars in military aid from a vulnerable Ukraine additional documents subsequent to the speaker's decision to hold the articles have come out that's a gain in terms of information to the American people and we've also seen during this period of time that a critically important potential witness John Bolton has said he will testify if subpoenaed John Bolton had direct communication with the president about this sordid matter and abuse of power and we know from testimony from doctor Fiona hill characterize this whole scheme as a drug deal and the president's main operative Rudolph Giuliani as a hand grenade that from democratic congressman who keen Jeffries part of the house democratic leadership in this note regarding the house California governor Gavin Newsom today saying that he will not call for a special election in the district held by resigning Republican congressman Duncan hunter saying that we received his letter of resignation based on the timing a special election will not be called Duncan hunter officially steps down next Monday after pleading guilty to charges of campaign finance

"Free me. She's in great gear deeds in Watson. It's a family thing. Out of Senator John thune. He will be and Senate Republican whip when the new congress convenes in January, and he joins us this morning from our CBS affiliate K E ELO in Sioux, Falls, Senator. Welcome to face the nation. Good morning. Margaret. Question for you to start off here is based on the news. We learned this week surrounding some of the legal problems with the president federal prosecutors in Manhattan said that his personal attorney made illegal campaign finance payments at the direction of individual one. Specifically, prosecutors say individual one President Donald Trump made payment in coordination with and at the direction of individual one. So everything that Michael Cohen paid for. Prosecutors say was directed by the president. What do you make of this filing? The president says it exonerates him. It's a sentencing filing, Margaret. But I think a couple of your former guests have already suggested this that it is important till we await the additional evidence that comes out and the special counsel, Robert Muller and his team continued to to do their work. But I think at this point we have an incomplete picture, and I think at this point the president is, you know, as as you said earlier has denied some of these allegations that have been made Michael Cohen, obviously has plenty of incentive now to cooperate and the representations that he makes I think you have to you know, they're going to be some questions raised about those as well. So I guess my view is that like, let's wait. This thing is still not complete until it is complete. I think it's probably. Mostly speculation on the part of those of us who are not privy to all the details that the Muller investigation are looking at. Well, this was specific to the prosecutors in Manhattan in terms of those specific charges but moving on here. Yeah. But I think it's the same same thing. I mean, they got this. As a this is still we don't know all the facts until we know all the facts, I think it's important probably not to draw any judgments, but we'll know in due time. You have a big job. Now as we introduced you. You're going to be the whip here. How quickly can you get President Trump's nominee to be attorney general William Barr confirmed? What is the timeline? We're looking at here. Well, there's certainly a process and confirmation hearings. The name gets omitted, obviously, there's background checks. It's shouldn't be all that difficult. This is someone who has a long record in public life and also was held this position previously. My guess is that when it's all said and done if when it comes to a vote in the full Senate that he'll have a strong support. I would hope that he would have strong support from Democrats in the Senate as well as Republicans. He is we know very qualified. And I think has a proven record of accomplishment is a lawyer both in the private sector and his work in the government as well. So, but we will await the process allow it to move forward and the confirmation hearings to get under way. But I would suspect his prospects would be pretty good at least if you looked at it this point trying to handicap it. Well, let's talk about what's happening in the next few weeks. What some call the lame duck here. There is some work. You still need to be able to get done. One of the things that Senator Lindsey Graham has been vocal about a conversation. He had with the president in which he says, the president told him he wants to attach criminal Justice reform and border wall funding to the year end spending Bill, what do you make of that proposal? There are several things that we have to do before the end of this year before the next congress stars we have to fund the government about seventy five percent of the bills that fund the government have been passed by the congress and signed into law by the president. But the remain about twenty five percent one of which is the appropriation Bill that funds the department of homeland security which would include funding for the border wall. Criminal Justice reform is an issue that we have a lot of members in our conference who support but this still being worked on. And if it's going to be considered this year, I think it's probably going to have to they're gonna have to find a consensus that would enable it to move fairly quickly because we just don't have a lot of time. We've got to fund the government we've got to pass a farm Bill. We've got a lot of nominations. We want to move through the process. So there's a pretty detailed list of things that congress still has to get done and criminal Justice reform. Obviously is in that mix at the moment. But how it shakes out in the end. I think remains to be seen. But I would suspect in order for it to be a part of that you're in. Train and everybody tries to hitch a ride on that urine train that they will have to be some consensus about it. So that it can be expedited and not take the, you know, the full six days procedurally that it could if if all the the procedural tools were used by those who are opposed to it. Well, the president's publicly pressuring Republican leaders to act on this. He wants criminal Justice reform done. So you can't commit to that now. Well, he he does. And we know that and we've had conversations with him, and there are many as I said, many Republican senators and a lot of Democrats senators who want to see it happen as well. There are timing issues associated with it. But at the moment, at least, there's still some substantive issues that are being resolved. I think if they get that worked out if they can attract the support of more Republican senators there there's still an opportunity I think for that to be finish this year. But if not obviously it it will be taken up again next year. And it's an issue that there's a lot of interest in very quickly. Can you avoid? A shutdown before Christmas. Well, I think we can I think that people have to come together. Democrats obvious your need to support and and get behind this border security issue.

McKinnon thanks for joining us. Thanks. So you figure the timing, you know you had Google chief privacy officer testifying only recently, no word of the data leak. You figure a letter at this point. Got to be pretty scathing. That's right. And it was Senate Commerce Committee leadership, basically unloaded on Google for holding back so long such critical information, and you write about how the at the hearing this week. It was a bipartisan effort to really take down Google and hold it accountable for its latest, but is it enough to really change things at this point? I mean, we've been talking for weeks months about the push towards regulation, and you get a sense from wash. Covering this all the time that things that the stakes have been raised, your surly hearing more and more that you know, Google is finding itself in the crosshairs and that regulation is really front of mind for a lot of leading lawmakers. I listened to a speech dies Senator Mark Warner, who really was sounding the alarm bells and was particularly critical of Google as well. Previous to this Facebook was the big tech company really under the microscope, taking the heads about vulnerability. We've talked about how Facebook is open to working towards regulation. How what kind of response do you think we can expect from Google with regards to you? Any new rules about privacy down the road or how it's willing to comply with them? Well, it's interesting. You know, a lot of the tech companies have done kind of gradual about face on the whole question of regulation. Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook kind of lead that parade earlier this year when he testified a couple of times. Before congress, and basically said, you know, we're open to regulation as long as it's the right kind of regulation, and you've seen a lot of companies sort of follow suit since then. And Google, you know was not certainly not at the head of the line, but they are starting to come around on the question of regulation as well is still a long long way to go. And and no one thinks that this is going to be a quick or easy effort, but it's interesting to see the industry at least generally saying that they are headed in the direction of regulation, John McCain, and thank you so much the you and that is tech news briefing more details at wsj.com on the WSJ app. I'm Tanya, boosts dose reporting from the newsroom in New York.
