Joe Biden Addresses Nation Following SCOTUS Ruling
"I want to go right to The White House. President Biden is speaking. Let's listen in. The women out of the power to control their own destiny. And a reinforced a fundamental right of privacy right of each of us to choose how to live our lives. Now with Rogan, let's be very clear. The health and life of women in this nation are now at risk, as chairman and ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, as vice president now as president of the United States, I've studied this case carefully. I've overseen more Supreme Court confirmations than anyone today. In this case was always discussed, I believe roe V wade was the correct decision. As a matter of constitutional law and application of the fundamental right to privacy and liberty and matters of family and personal autonomy. It was a decision on a complex matter to a careful balance between a woman's right to choose earlier in her pregnancy and the state's ability to regulate later in her pregnancy. A decision with broad national consensus, the most Americans of faith and backgrounds found acceptable that had been the law of the land for most of the lifetime of Americans today. And it was a constitutional principle of justice.
SCOTUS Strikes Down NY Gun Law, Expanding Concealed Carry Rights
"Breaking news today, the United States Supreme Court has a landmark decision. One that will live for quite a long time. God willing, the Supreme Court strikes down New York's gun carrying restrictions. The Second Amendment applies outside of the home the court says a 6 three decision. It is the New York State rifle and pistol association V Bruin. The Supreme Court has officially struck down a New York gun control law that required people to show proper cause to get a license to carry a concealed handgun outside of the home. Marbury versus Madison was a landmark Supreme Court decision that established the principle of judicial review. The idea of judicial review is essential to a constitutional republic. An independent judiciary must be able to strike down laws and statutes that they find to violate the
Chris Coons: All Actions Must Be Taken for Safety of Judiciary Members
"Senator get ready for this ruling It's going to be controversial no matter what happens If it matches the draft leaked draft opinion or not there is this law on the books I'm just asking should they follow the law Should the attorney general say yes the rest of those people before something happens Well Brad I think if the leaked version of the opinion is matched by what would be a remarkable act of judicial activism conservative judicial activism there will be understandable anger across the nation as an elected official I've certainly had protests out front of my house Many of us have who serve in Congress or another elected offices But we need to make sure that all appropriate actions are being taken to ensure the safety of members of our federal judiciary including Supreme Court Justice
'Saving Nine' Author Senator Mike Lee Is Sounding the SCOTUS Alarm
"I'm talking this hour with senator Mike Lee of Utah. He has written a book, brand new book called saving 9. The fight against the left sedation plan to pack the Supreme Court and destroy American liberty. I have to tell you, senator, I thank God for you and for the handful of senators and congressmen who are vigilant, who understand what we're facing. When you talk about the idea that Joe Biden and his administration want to do things like this, this is only one example. But these are horrifying. They're dramatically un American to the point of being anti American. It seems that a marxists have taken over our government and they're trying to dismantle it from within. It's a little, it's a little bit comforting when you think that, well, we had this with FDR as well. But of course, he didn't succeed too dramatically, but it is frightening, and I'm just glad that you're sounding the alarm that you're aware of this. And that you've written a book, brand new book called saving 9. What would Biden need to do to bring this about? And again, this is to me, this is where when people say, well, it's politics. This is politics in the most negative sense. It's what can we get away with to destroy everything? That's effectively what is happening here. I mean, it's happening across the spectrum. But this is what's happening with the judiciary. Yeah. This is a really devious trick. And the reason is Eric, it's an act that is hostile to the constitution, has the potential sort of like removing the plug from a boat before you launch it, to sink the constitution. And yet court packing itself is not unconstitutional. It should be, and that's why we've got legislation introduced that would make it part of the constitution. But as of right now, you could do it statutorily. So Joe Biden would need to bring this about. He could pass it in the House of Representatives with a yawn. It had been no difficulty there. In the Senate, the only real obstacle is the filibuster,

Mike Lee: 'Saving Nine' Arms You With Arguments on How to Stop Dems
"Quote mondaire Jones In saving 9 before even said that because long before he said those things yesterday He was putting out videos making statements publicly trying to delegitimize the Supreme Court And so I saw this coming and that's what's so deeply concerned about it Every time they do this they feel the need to isolate those members of the court they disagree with And this is about so much more than protecting the court Saving 9 is about so much more than court packing It's about what happens when the left doesn't get its way and what you can do to stop them This book will help arm you It will give you the arguments that you need You'll never lose another political argument of your life especially if it has anything to do with the separation of powers in our constitution After you read this book but yeah it's troubling that they're willing to take her with something so sacred and something that's been such a gift to the American people That is the independence of our federal judiciary Warts and all we've got the best court system in the world They're trying to undermine it just as they're undermining so many other institutions
Son of Buffalo victim pushes Congress: 'What are you doing?'

Peter Navarro: There Were Two Constitutional Violations in His Arrest
"We have entered really dangerous, unprecedented waters. Tucker, I was in a position where a partisan committee has weaponized the investigatory powers for the purpose of preventing Donald Trump from ever getting back in The White House. They subpoenaed me illegally, and I was faced with the untenable choice of upholding executive privilege, which was not my privileged way. That's Donald Trump's privilege the way. So I did my duty to the president. I did my duty to this country, and here we said, and the civil suit I filed, Tucker, I hope will be historically important because there's really two constitutional issues here at stake. The first with this weaponization of Congress's investigatory powers is a clear violation of the separation of powers in our constitution. The legislative branch is not supposed to be the judge jury and execution. I heard one of your commentators there when you played that clip, the purpose was to punish Peter Navarro. That's not their role. That's the judiciary's role. So that alone is sufficient to render what they have done illegal, and therefore what the Department of Justice did illegal. But the bigger issue here, Tucker. And this is where the Department of Justice and committee were so disingenuous. I assert executive executive privilege prevents me from complying with their subpoenas. And instead of going to talk and negotiate the privilege with Donald Trump, as the law requires, they went into this fanciful and absurd notion that Biden, a sitting incumbent president, could strip his immediate predecessor of executive privilege in me a staff member to the president of what the Justice Department itself as you pointed out has absolute testimonial immunity. They don't play by any rules.
Biden to deliver Thursday night speech urging action from Congress on gun control

House panel swiftly takes up gun bill after mass shootings

The WEF's Goals Pose a Specific, Targeted Threat to the American Way
"In Davos Switzerland right now and everything that impacts your pocketbook and your livelihood actually goes through Davos more than Washington D.C.. The puppeteers of Joe Biden the people that are actually pulling the strings are the ones right now in Switzerland. Unfortunately, because America is not as strong as it once was, especially under this president. There's more power being concentrated in the hills of Switzerland than in our own land. Now the power in America could be re invigorated almost instantaneously. With proper leadership and proper vision. But here's the 8 predictions for the world for 2030. Now, they changed some of the branding and some of the wording. Because it was a little bit too, let's say it was a little bit too spicy. Number one, you'll own nothing and you'll be happy. This is a goal, a prediction by 2030. Now they word it differently on their website as of today. They say all products will have become services, quote, I don't own anything. I don't own a car, I don't own a house, I don't any apply. I don't own any appliances or clothes. Shopping is a distant memory in the city of 2030, whose inhabitants have cracked clean energy and borrow what they need on demand. It sounds utopian until she mentions that her every move is tracked and outside the city lives in swathes of discontent and the ultimate depiction of a society splits into. The second one, there is a global price on carbon. China took the lead in 2017 with the market for trading, the right to emit CO2, setting the world on a path towards a single carbon price and a carbon tax. Goal number three, which is the U.S. will no longer be the world's superpower. U.S. dominance is over. We'll have a handful of global powers. Nation states will upstage to come back. And America will no longer be the world's superpower. Western values will be have tested to a breaking point. What are western values? Separation of powers. Consent of the governed. Western values are what keep us together. Western values are the best way to design and run a civilization. Some people say, well, Charlie, how dare you say western values are better than other values. Well, I think it's a good thing that we have the presumption of innocence. I think it's a good thing that we have a protection of individual and constitutional rights. Western values are derived from the teachings of the Bible. They are human rights. Western values respect the right to speech assembly to run for office, independent judiciary, that not one person should be able to control. There's western values are that the few should not be able to rule the many, but the many should be able to rule the few.
Caller: Dems Hired Disturbing People to Sit Behind Justice Kavanaugh
"Looking back at when Kevin Hart was to be approved. It was known later on that the difficult hired many disturbing people to come in and sit in the building there. Right. Sit behind him. I remember that, yeah. And so this doesn't surprise me at all. Because I know exactly how he will vote. They know what they're doing, and they know what intimidation can result. I said this yesterday and I'm sorry to even repeat it. I'm not so sure that the conservative justice are going to stand firm. I'm not sure that this intimidation won't have an impact. And if it does, if one of the conservative justices flips, God help the rest of the judiciary both on the federal and the state and the local level. Because the bullies, the intimidators, the mob will have won.
Mike Davis Explains Just How Huge This SCOTUS Breach of Protocol Is
"Yesterday, we were diving into how the United States Supreme Court has suffered, I guess is the best word to use. And unprecedented leak from who we do not know, we think we know, but the person who is best able to describe this and articulate it is the head of a wonderful organization called the article three project that's article number three project dot org. And it is the terrific Mike Davis Mike. Welcome back to the program. Thank you for having me back on Charlie. So Mike, how are we supposed to make of this? The U.S. Supreme Court is leaking decisions before they happen. First of all, who could potentially do something like this, do we know who probably did this? And if so, what is the proper course of action to hold that person accountable? So I clerked for justice Gorsuch on the Supreme Court and I also served as the chief counsel for nominations on the Senate Judiciary Committee and my part of my portfolio was oversight over the federal judiciary. I have never heard anything like what happens with this leak. I don't think it's ever happens that a draft majority opinion for a Supreme Court case has leaked out prior to the court issuing the opinion, especially in a case this monumental. This is the Dobbs case where it looks like the at least 5, maybe 6 justices on the Supreme Court are going to overturn roe versus wade and Planned Parenthood Planned Parenthood versus Casey and return abortion regulations back to the states where it belongs. This is a stunning breach of protocol. Each of the 9 Supreme Court Justices have four law clerks, each of them have generally two to three administrative aids. It is a very small universe of people who have access to these draft opinions and these opinions have to circulate among the justices because they have to work together. They have to collaborate in order to draft majority opinions dissenting opinions and concurring opinions. And if you shatter that trust, if you shatter that secrecy that confidence in the Supreme Court, the Supreme Court can no longer function.
The Supreme Court Leaker Definitely Wanted to Stir the Pot
"The person who leaked not only the 5 four decision in the Dobbs case. The 5 four decision overruling roe V wade, the leaker wanted to start a pot and perhaps try to strong arm the justices, the 5 justices to reconsider to back off to get scared. I mean, obviously, justices are legal scholars, they tend to be academics, and so this person, the leaker thought, you know what? Let's put them up against the wall, so to speak. I mean, this is a, this is a gross assault on the independence of the judiciary. And to be honest, I don't think it's going to work. Why? Because quite frankly, if the court decision is 5 to four, it's leaked. The whole decision is leaked out, and let's say the court would now go back and go, you know what? We have second thoughts. We're going to go the other way. I mean, this would basically tell you that our Supreme Court is a complete joke. That they have no rectitude, they have no ability to stand independent of the mob that they are nothing more than a creation of the mob and that the mob can intimidate them at will. And so I don't think that the court could take that risk of putting its own credibility into complete
Dale Wilcox: Getting to Know the Immigration Reform Law Institute
"All right, hey everybody. Great show today. One of the biggest problems we've got going on right now and it's the least reported problem that we have right now is the problem we're having on the border. Our southern border. Well, I guess it depends on if it's a problem depending on your perspective because on Dallas, not a it's not a problem to the Biden administration. In fact, the Biden administration, if you judge by vice president Harris, has no idea where the southern border is, much less wanting to fix it. As ranking member of the House judiciary committee and being on that committee for a long time, our primary focus in our committee was immigration law and I can tell you that what's going on on the border right now is a travesty. What is happening is the national security risk and we are in we've got to fix this. And the mainstream media will not talk about this. We're going to have a chance to talk today about our immigration problem and I'm excited to have Dale Wilcox from here from immigration reform law institute. Got a good friend of both of ours, Tom hollands, who's been on this show many times in Tom and I go back a long ways, let's just say, as you well know, folks here listen to podcast Tom's a little bit passionate about this issue. So he works with this group and Dale and his group have been out show fighting in the front lines this bringing lawsuits against the Biden administration winning these lawsuits. And I just want to put it today this we get are able to use your listening to this podcast. I want you to put a perspective on just how bad our southern border has become and a little less than 14 months. He's getting ready to get
Jennifer Horn Explains California's Scary New Abortion Bill
"We thought it was bad enough in the Commonwealth with the butcher of Richmond with the former governor Ralph northam with his. Pediatrician saying a woman can decide after the birth. If they keep the child or kill it, talk to us about this unbelievable story coming out of the assemblies, judiciary committee. Yeah, so there is a bill in California that was put together by an assemblywoman out of Oakland. It has the full support of our attorney general in the state, rob Banda, who was handpicked by Gavin Newsom. And really, they started this bill because there was a woman who was addicted to meth during her pregnancy. She had a stillbirth, and she was charged with murder of her child. Now, we could debate all day long whether or not that was appropriate, but that was the catalyst for this bill that was put together. And you couple that with Gavin Newsom saying that California is essentially a sanctuary state for people wanting an abortion after Texas passed their life protecting laws in Texas, California has responded by saying, come on in, will not only give you an abortion, but we'll pay for it for you. Now this new assembly Bill says that a woman and her doctor or accomplice and this is spelled out in assembly Bill 22 23. Will not be held responsible under the law for anything that may go wrong during her pregnancy or in the perinatal period. Now, here's where the problem you're talking about just blanket immunity. Blanket immunity. And perinatal, if you look up the definition, can be anywhere from 22 weeks into gestation till about typically people say about 7 days after birth, which would then say that 8 is conceivable under this law without definition of perinatal that woman could have a baby, take it home, have buyers remorse something happens to that child God forbid, I don't even want to say it. And they would not be able to prosecute that woman or charge that woman with

B. I. report another big thing I gotta tell ya just describes the daylights out of me is first of all that that credit turn Berg the Swedish girl the six year old Swedish girl was was named person of the year by time magazine for her work advocating for climate change and trump mocked her I mean it's cyber bullying at its worst and not only that that's not a surprise but what to me what really great me was the fact that melania trump the the president's wife her big thing supposedly was a campaign against cyber bullying and yet the number one site be cyber bullying her namely her husband she doesn't say anything when he bullies this young lady because she became that person are you of the year and he was also considered and he didn't get it and apparently he's perturbed that he didn't get it and she did and he's mad and he takes it out on her side I tell ya I'm not a big fan of the first really not a big fan of the president but I've also not not a fan of all of the First Lady I mean talk about hypocrite she's proposes the proposed promotes this thing except when it affects the subscriber bull you're number one name in her husband nothing I can say about her is that you know he makes a point of always wearing a different outfit every time she's she does the one thing she does frequently which is walk back and forth between the helicopter that White House on our way to to from Marlowe again Florida so anyway I just like it some of us what her favorite another thing that that well all this bad news for trump is come out it's too it's too bad because it's actually some really great really hats and he in one way he had a really good week he got finally with agreement of the Democrats that he'll he'll take full credit for that with a grimace of the Democrats who got the the the new nafta Adam what's called the basically the US Canada Mexico tree trade three trade deal through and it's as one person said it's it's ninety percent after but it's the other ten percent is a significant improvement in Sir in areas so that's certainly a positive from the transfer from its perspective secondly the US China trade agreement went through our he says it did although I gotta tell you there is something some B. S. involved in that in that click the trump's campaign they said in that they're quoting that that the chief you should US says the China will by fifty billion dollars a year in agriculture well let me tell you a secret the highest amount of agriculture that the China has bought from the US was in two thousand seventeen and that was twenty three billion twenty three billion in in then a couple of things have happened since the number one the Chinese economy slowed down so they're not buying as much secondly at least in terms of of of soybeans and corn and secondly the Chinese have found other suppliers particularly Brazil and I think Australia so this year they bought three billion as opposed to twenty three billion two years ago before please try these these tests in place so here you got you got you went from twenty three down to about three now he's claiming that they're gonna buy fifty even though of there are other suppliers of stepped into the breach to provide for them so anyway I got a real question has there been a trade deal yes does it have some good things in it yes but I gotta tell you until you see it in writing and see that that of course is another side of that which we get into if you want namely the issue of of trump gives twenty six billion dollars in aid to the farmers because in his truck of his chair of deal and then he turns around and they just decided last week's paper that he's cutting seven hundred thousand people off of the the of the of food stamps because excess cording because they say it'll say five billion dollars he gets twenty six the billion away because of his Trajan I'll of his terrace rather than what I'm gonna say five of that by cutting off the poor anyway gifs that's not something that pleases me a lot of we are we'll take a break we'll take of we're gonna take a break we'll come back we'll talk about the the character from not from among we talked about talk about the time magazine thing anyway well back in the.

"The transmission of the roadmap, but the story and the lesson for Nadler does not quite end there. Because congress a few years later wrote the roadmap procedure into law. The now defunct independent counsel law required. That quote, an independent counsel shall advise the house of representatives of any substantial and credible information, which such independent counsel receives that may constitute grounds for an impeachment. It was under this law that Kenneth Starr issued the so-called star report which was actually a referral of information that in stars judgment. The judiciary committee might consider grounds for impeaching Bill Clinton. The result is that we have something of a presidential tradition in which special. Prosecutors investigating presidents have referred material to the House Judiciary committee. That they regard as possible grounds for impeachment. The trouble is that the particular statute under which star operated has lapsed and the regulations that replaced. It have no provision for an impeachment referral to the contrary. They require that Muller. File us confidential report to the attorney general who then decides what to do with it. They conspicuously do not require that information that might be essential to Congress's performance of its duty actually reached congress. So if Muller actually has evidence that congress would want to examine under the impeachment clauses tapping into the incipient tradition of referring such material would require a decision on his part, and it would actually require as well a decision on the part of incoming attorney general William bar. A letter from Nadler would be designed publicly and formally to remind both Muller and bar of the tradition, and of congress is expectation that they act in accord with it Nadler has declared. He will get the Muller report, quote, if necessary our committee will subpoena the report if necessary will get Muller to testify he said recently, but this actually skips an important step. It assumes that Muller's report will be a fully developed narrative that answers all of congress is questions on impeachment matters. But what if the Muller report is not factually rich, what if it is not designed to deliver to congress information to help congress do its job..

"Shorts. January thirty first two thousand nineteen today. An article that we ran this morning on l'affaire entitled what an old Watergate document can teach the House Judiciary committee by me. The chairman of the house committee on the judiciary faced a vexing problem pressure for impeachment was building. But while lots of evidence against the president was public key pieces of it were not they were rather in the hands of a special prosecutor who didn't work for congress. The prosecutor's job was to prosecute crimes not to evaluate the president's fitness for office that ladder job lay with the chairman and his committee who didn't have access to the prosecutor's evidence. So the House Judiciary committee chairman wrote a letter requesting that the evidence be turned over, quote, the house and the judiciary committee are under control. Rolling constitutional obligation and commitment to act expeditiously in carrying out. Their solemn constitutional duty wrote chairman Peter Regino in a letter dated March eighth nineteen seventy four to John, Sarah. The chief judge of the US district court for the district of Columbia. It was Redeina said the quote committee's view that in constitutional terms. It would be unthinkable if this material were kept from the house of representatives in the course of the discharge of its most awesome, constitutional responsibility, unquote. I have a suggestion for Jerry Nadler, the current occupant of regina's old office he should consider taking a page from his predecessors book and formally requesting a referral of possible impeachment material. Not ler. Circumstances are admittedly a bit different from regina's, but the similarities are striking to and regina's course, suggests a way forward for Nadler that is worth serious consideration it boils down to this if Nadler and his committee want the evidence in the hands of special counsel, Robert Muller that is relevant to their performance of their own constitutional function. They should start by formally asking Muller to refer it to them. I ran across regina's letter in a passing reference in my recent research on the Watergate roadmap. The grand jury report that Watergate special prosecutor Leon Jawara ski referred to the House Judiciary committee in nineteen seventy four specifically Ceric mentioned the letter in his opinion approving the transmission of war skis impeachment referral quote. The House Judiciary committee through its chairman has made a formal request for delivery of the report materials the opinion says a footnote in support of this point footnote number four sites the Rudeina letter specifically along with a hearing transcript the national archive has made both of these documents public and we posted them on law. Fair this morning. Let's acknowledge up front the differences between regina's circumstances and Nadler's regina's committee already had an open impeachment inquiry authorized by nearly unanimous four hundred. Ten to four vote in the house of representatives Nadler's committee by contrast has no open impeachment inquiry. Indeed democratic leaders insist they have no plans to impeach President Trump and are waiting on the evidence from Muller before making any decisions about how to proceed as Nadler himself recently. Put it, quote, we have to see what the Muller report says, unquote. He added we have to get the facts, we will see where the facts lead maybe that will lead to impeachment. Maybe it won't it is much too early unquote. Perhaps more importantly Jawara ski. Unlike Muller was ready to provide material to the house, the Watergate grand jury had specifically prepared the report for purposes of transmitting it to the House Judiciary committee in support of the impeachment inquiry by contrast Muller is keeping things. Very quiet. He presumably doesn't want congressional activity to interfere with his investigation. And he's evidently, not look. To jump start congressional investigations that will want to talk to his witnesses. Indeed, it's not even clear if Muller believes he has information that he would want the House Judiciary committee to examine pursuant to its obligations under the impeachment clauses. So if I sit in short to say that at the present time, neither the supply side, nor the demand side of this equation is as mature as it was in nineteen seventy four. And yet as I say the similarities between the situations strike me as alternately more substantial than the differences for one thing. The structural arrangement is very similar once again, the judiciary committee has the impeachment thority, but not the evidence while the prosecutor has the evidence, but not the authority to think beyond the narrowly criminal in critical respects, the current interational of this problem is actually worse than it was in Watergate back then after all the Senate Watergate committee had done its own extensive investigations key witnesses had testified publicly and the broad parameters of the story were thus known..

"Pretty component of our significantly restricted funding. Under the under the regulations. Bob muller. Could only be terminated for good cause. And I frankly, it's unimaginable. To me that Bob would ever do anything that gave rise to good cause? Unimaginable. Lawyers are known to be all that imaginative though. And that was not a yes or no bar. Also took a similar tack on another crucial issue. We've been tracking. This is a question that was we know from covering this today suggested to the very top democrat on the Senate Judiciary committee by one of my next guests chairman and congressman Jerrold Nadler, he runs now as I mentioned, the House Judiciary committee. I have two questions from the chairman of the House Judiciary committee. Will you commit to making any report Muller produces at the conclusion of his investigation available to congress and to the public as I said in my statement, I am going to make as much information available as I can consistent with the rules and regulations that are part of the special counsel regulations. With me. Now is as mentioned that congressman Gerald Nadler chair of the House Judiciary committee. Thanks for being here on this day. Did you you put those questions in? They were big at the top of the hearing. What did you think of the answers? I thought the answer was was was not terribly revealing. I mean, the radio he said he would make them public to the extent possible under the regulations the regulations really don't say much about it. So I hope I think it's important that he do the right thing. He comes in under a tremendous cloud or bar. We're coming under tremendous cloud because that memo he wrote applying for the job which expresses great doubt as to legitimacy or the of a large part of the of of the mole investigation. And we certainly hope that he will do what hasn't been done previously. Stand up for them to protect molar stand up to protect the investigation standing up to the president when he tries to intimidate witnesses. When he tries to intimidate the investigation, we hope he will do this. But I don't see any reason really to expect it, and we hope you'll make the report public because the American people need to see that report to know what's going on in to see whether. To know what's going on to see to what extent the president has been compromised compromised and all the questions that that that that we have? And it's important committee needs to see that report to to continue our work. I didn't Mr Chairman he could have said if Bob Muller views the investigation as one that should result in a public report. I will make it public. He didn't say that. You've you this as him laying the groundwork to keep things secret or just trying to keep his options open. I don't really know. I certainly hope he's just keeping his options open. He could very well be laying the groundwork for keeping it secret. That's what his memo would have suggested. But if he wants to go down in history as it depends. What his legacy what he wants his legacy to be. If he wants to go down in history. Someone who helped protect the rule of law in this country. He will wanna make sure that that report is public if he wants to go down. And someone who helped the the degradation of the democratic process in this country. He'll keep it report as privacy. Can he was also pressed about these other investigations the touch on Trump world, including in New York where you are the federal prosecutors at the southern district. Let's look at that exchange chairman. Will you impose any restrictions on other? Prosecutors who were also investigating the president's you're well aware in the southern district of New York..

The Democrats will take the house in Nancy. Pelosi will be sworn in speaker first woman to hold that Seidel again. It's the moment that the resistance it has been waiting for the cold realization on November ninth twenty sixteen that we will be in for a long hard knocked down dragged out political dog bite against Donald Trump but all of the action Shen is going to unfold in the committee's subcommittee and Representative Cohen has revealed their battle plan exclusively for you are loyal listeners. Not everyone realizes that the Ruby Red State of Tennessee has a Democratic U._S.. Representative Bouza Real Progressive but Representative Cohen filed the most comprehensive bill of impeachment against trump in G._O._P.. Controlled under fifteen congress which he called one of the worst bodies as of all time also explains why there's a strong case in favor of teaching Donald Trump today WHO's choice to put Putin I and work with Russia during the twenty sixteen election is one of the greatest crimes in the history of the United States. Take a listen to my interview with Congressman Steve Cohen Steve Cohen knowing who represents tendencies ninth district including most of Memphis as he's done since two thousand seven after previously serving his community as a state senator since eighty two congressman. Thank you so much for joining us. We spend plenty of time Google in you for this interview review well. There's a lot of stuff out there on the old Google but you you you've been on the forefront of the fight against the Republican parties use of propaganda that is the repeated use of intentional political buys for partisan advantage for for years now but if I your stance caused some backlash do you feel vindicated by your early stance against the G._O._P.'s relentless disinformation campaigns in light of the events of the last few years well I do. I think I've been kind of on the forefront of all of this. I think I was the first person Vitamin back in twenty twenty eleven twenty ten. It's a longtime back the call out the tea party for what they were they came to Washington and they demonstrated and protested and spat on on John Lewis or Emanuel cleaver coming up the capital and I wanNA among them I put on some shades and a baseball cap and was listening to my itunes on my pod and walked among them and looked at them and I could see they were the same type of people that had throwing rocks at the state capital during the income tax issues that come up and Tennessee <hes> provoked by Marsha Blackburn who rallied them up there and they caused chaos and it was just the same anti tax antigovernment borderline racist people that scene for years and Tennessee and it was the same people up there at the United States capitol that was the Tea Party folks and I've been out there on the front lines on trump and and this republican congress which is maybe been the worst one hundred fifty congress is ever running interference for trump helping him in being complicit with him and what I think is going to be shown to be one of the great crimes of history of mankind presidential candidate <hes> involved with the Russians that could be showing my Robert. For you introduced I think five articles of impeachment against trump in a house judiciary Republicans chose obviously cover up his wrongdoing and kick it down kicking the can down a little bit <hes>. I know that House leadership is keeping tight LID. I'm discussions of impeaching trump but in late of his department of Justice calling fell in this month. What do you expect to see happen? In the House Judiciary Committee next year. I think we're GONNA have a great number of hearings on things like emoluments which should come up in the subcommittee which I will chair <hes> constitution civil liberties and civil rights <hes> we'll have hearings on emoluments. We'll have hearing some on voting rights. <hes> we'll have hearings possibly on the pardon power <hes> there are other areas. We'll we'll have hearings all of which we done in consultation with our chairman to to be Jerry Nadler I talked to him about voting rights in emoluments already and there'll be other hearings by the full committee and maybe some of the other committees that might come up and I think they'll be like impeachment hearings if they're not called impeachment hearings because they are the the problem of an impeachment would be violations of emoluments and and <hes> unjust USA pardons and attempts to obstruct justice which may come up as well and some of that would come up in the criminal law subcommittee which Sheila jackson-lee will share. I think she'll have the opportunity to do hearings on things like obstruction of justice and and other surveys currently with Muller's investigation so we'll have those whether there will be a impeachment hearing soon. I don't know eventually there will be one and I say there will be one because trump continues to exhibit and show the need to bring impeachment charges against him and that's why did it in November twenty seventeen <hes> h joint reservoir twenty one <hes> he just keeps keeps doing he doesn't know how to refrain because his life has been one crime <hes> after another one misdeed after another one lie after another and he will continue to do this. He'll continue in my opinion to to interfere with due process to try to Muller's investigation because he can't stand anybody. That's not a sycophant at a lack of when did you. I realize that trump's lengthy relationship with Russia required urgent response by Congress. It's hard to say when I I did. I guess we had suspicions early in medicine administration and they were. I don't think anybody realized it necessarily during the election. Although you know I remember being shocked when he at one of the speeches said Russia if you're listening we're the whatever it was thirty thousand emails and there were some other things that came up <hes> concerning the changes in the Republican Party's ladies platform concerning giving Ukraine offensive weapons and there were certain evidences that were were out there but it wasn't I guess until we started this Congress and he was present began and you started to see so many connections and I guess early on it might have been before they took office where when <hes> Kushner was trying to get back channel <hes> to the White House from Russia and you what is going on here and all the context with Kislyak with sessions with with with Flynn. Can you name it. <hes> it so obvious that <hes> they they they were hoots and then the more and more it goes on in the more you learn just fill obvious and you know Muller's able to put together all the pieces..
