"A high profile battle. With CBS is 60 Minutes. The program is getting widespread backlash from Republicans and some Democrats. After recently aired a story alleging Mr De Santis funneled covert vaccines to affluent Florrick, Florida communities and privatize the vaccine rollout to benefit donors more from Julia Manchester political reporter at the Hill, Julia, What do we have? So essentially on Sunday night, 60 minutes aired a segment about governor to Santa's is Vaccine rollout in Florida. And essentially, the story started out with talking about inequity in the vaccine rollout, saying you're using Palm Beach is a bit of a subject matter saying, and you know, Palm Beach, Tony the city of Palm Beach, which is filled with lots of wealthy older residents had much easier access to the vaccine. However. Go across the way to West Palm Beach, which is more diverse and less affluent. There was not as easy of access for residents, so it touched on that. But the story really caught backlash when The correspondent essentially asked governor to scientists out of press conference, you know about, you know, essentially implying that there could have been paid to play with the Florida supermarket chain Publix that public, which has donated to Republicans and Democrats. Donated $100,000 to governor. Two samples his reelection pack on Ben. Weeks later there, Woz, uh, partnership between Publix and the vaccine Rollout system in Florida. The issue with that is that there were Democrats working with governor to Santa's, including the mayor of Palm Beach. Who worked to get that partnership deal with Publix. On top of that, as a Florida native, I can say this. It is a no brainer that government in Florida Would partner with public. There are Publix is all over the state. It was very, very popular grocery chain, So it was something to be expected. But there was an implication in the story that there was paid to play. But now you have Democrats coming out and practically defending Rhonda Santa's saying, Whoa, whoa, whoa! This was decided beforehand. Alright, so explain how the governor here is winning some points. Well, the governor is very much winning some points by going, you know all over Fox News all over conservative media and blasting 60 minutes, saying This is, um you two, you know, media bias against him Essentially. Moreover, he's also talking about it at press conferences. He's being asked about this, and it spits into his narrative that the media is biased against conservatives like him and that he's been treated poorly and it gives him a chance really, to Up, put off put on this No holds barred persona with the media similar to how President Trump has Politically right now, I would say this is very important to governor to Santa's, because he's looking to build his national profile. You know, obviously as the running for reelection in 2022 is approval rating is going up. Um, you know, as we, uh, I guess as the pandemic begins to end, or there's a light at the end of the tunnel, and he's also viewed as an heir apparent to President Trump in Republican circles. The consensus is as president Trump decides not to run in 2024 Rhonda. Fantasies in person to look at. We're speaking with Julia Manchester political reporter at the Hill. Her story is called Governor to Santis wins new fans on right in 60 Minutes Fight. S o. Does he see himself? As some sort of air, a parent or in the in the mode of Donald Trump. I think it's very obvious that he sees himself as that. I mean, he is very much billed himself, as you know many Trump if you will the state level and he has done that since he ran for governor in 2018, and he's been successful at it.

"The contents of the letter until potentially after he speaks with President Trump. So we weren't expecting to see that letter. But we learned it happened, man. That's what I want to know what's in that letter. You know, it was such a contentious election. Obviously going to the end where President Trump was saying it was stolen from him? Definitely very, very curious to see what goes on in there. Well, Julia Manchester Political reporter at the Hill, Thank you very much for joining us. Thank you. Also big news leading up to President Trump leaving office. All eyes were on the pardons. He was gonna issue He ended up granting clemency to 143 people 73 pardons and 70 computations. Most notably people that did not make the list where President Trump himself his family members Rudy Giuliani or Tiger King Joe exotic names that did stand out, though, included Steve Bannon and rapper Lil Wayne. For more on who got the last of the Trump pardons will speak to Josh Gerstein, senior legal affairs correspondent at Politico. I would say that they were not as provocative as sort of earth shattering as some people thought was possible, obviously, if Trump had decided to try to pardon himself That would be something completely unprecedented in American history, and it would have provoked legal challenges. Some people said he thought it might have intensified federal investigations into the President, President Richard Nixon, actually considered a self pardon, but decided to leave the White House. Without granting that himself later got a pardon from President Ford, of course, But as you say, probably of the parties that were issue Steve Bannon, probably the most noteworthy and provocative Steve Bannon. Was founder editor of Bright Bart website, then went on to be key strategist maybe the central strategist of Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and then a top adviser in the White House before falling out with the president. About a year So over there is the White House, so he had continued to be a supporter of President Trump had backed Lot of the talk about election fraud in the 2020 both the kind of things that the president has been advancing the last couple of months that don't seem to have a lot of factors. Foundation to them that may have been in part to get back into trump good graces. The reason it was so important for Bannon is that he's facing a federal prosecution along with three other men. Or fraud in connection with private fundraising or construction of a border wall along the US border with Mexico. Prosecutors in New York got an indictment of him and these others Saying that they lied about various aspects of their fundraising and that they diverted funds to obviously personal use and luxury. You're listening to the Daily dive weekend edition CAF? I am 6 40 everywhere in the I Heart radio app. When we come back, we'll continue our conversation about who did didn't get pardon from President Trump Contractor's license. 10 47 7 81.

"What this means to our country. The president who incite insurrection. We'll sign the involvement. The article of impeachment. Joining us now is Julia Manchester Political reporter at the Hill. Thanks for joining us, Julia Thanks so much for having me. The House has impeached President Donald Trump for a second time. He is now the only president to be impeached twice the article of Impeachment was incitement of insurrection. Obviously we know what happened on January 6th when these pro Trump supporting mob stormed the capital, and everybody had to take cover. You know, it was just a crazy scene this past the house. 2 30 to toe 1 97 with 10 Republicans voting against the president. Julia tell us about, you know everything that led up to this moment. It's been a crazy seven days in Washington and really across the country. You know, it's interesting. You know, the insurrection of the capital happened seven days ago. And then seven days from now, a week from now, President elect Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46, president of the United States. So what happening But in leading up to impeachment, obviously what sparked? This was the insurrection. We saw that President Trump Help that rally in Washington, D C, telling the attendees of his rally to go up to the capital to voice their displeasure with the election results, and many interpreted his remarks as incitement, and it would appear that he did in sight this group of rioters to go to the capital now, Obviously, there were thousands of people to attend President Trump's rally, which was to essentially protest the electoral college results. And then we saw that you know some of the People. Large number of them did stormed the capital when they stormed the capital. It was during the certification of the electoral college vote had senators Josh Holly and some there's had crews essentially proposing challenge the electoral college results in states like Pennsylvania. So we saw that there was essentially ally going around that there was this white Red voter fraud in the 2020 election. So during the certification process, the protestors stormed the capital, putting the lives of the vice president of the United States at risk of the speaker of the House of Thine eyes. Take that risk as well as lawmakers in the chamber at that moment, so we obviously know that five people were killed as a result of these riots, so it was a very deadly insurrection. Now we've heard obviously a lot of these. Writers have been charged. They have been apprehended by law enforcement. But today was President Trump's term in the spotlight, and he was impeached for the second time. It wasn't a surprise. We knew that Democrats would have the votes. But what's getting a lot of attention is the fact that Republicans voted to impeach him and including Congresswoman Liz Cheney, who is part of the GOP leadership in the House. Yeah, I mean, it's not a big number, but it's not an insignificant number either. And Liz Cheney to that point said there's never been a good Greater betrayal by a president of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. So obviously all that has transpired was a big turning point. And all of this what are the next steps now? Because Obviously impeachment happens in the house. The trial happens in the Senate, Mitch McConnell said. He's not going to call senators back early, so they're not going to come into session until the 19th the day before. Joe Biden becomes president. So this won't Achieve anything in ousting President Trump from office. So anything that happens will happen After that. I think the most significant thing that could happen is that they vote to bar him from running for federal office again. I think that's really the biggest thing that could come of it. That's correct. And I think that kind of almost could maybe relieve a lot of Republicans like Liz Cheney or even minority there, Kevin McCarthy with having to deal with Trump at the top of the ticket. However, while President Trump may not be running for office, he very well could still be a force within the Republican Party. Remember, he's still has a band of loyal followers. 75,000 people are roughly that amount of people voted for him and the election so he still is relatively influential in conservative. Circles. However, the timeline of all of this could prove to be a headache for President elected Joe Biden. So president like Joe Biden, once he is sworn in as president is probably wanted to go in and really implemented agenda and get started on covert release issues. He is wanting to get those $2000 stimulus checks out to Americans. He's going to want to do his 100 Day plan of getting those vaccines out to Americans and asking them to wear a mask for 100 days and making sure Schools can't open safely. He's gonna want to focus on that. And a lot of that includes coordination with the Democratic controlled house and Senate. However, that's going to be an issue or could be an issue. If Democrats are still working to carry out this impeachment trial in the Senate. We know that there are Republicans who would be open to the idea of going through with an impeachment trial. We know that Ben Sasse has said he would look over the articles of impeachment. Mitch McConnell notably has not ruled out voting to convict To President Trump. You know, I think a lot of these Republicans would really like to read President Trump of the party, but there's going to be a lot of multitasking going on. Julia Manchester Political reporter at the Hill. Thank you very much for joining us. Thank you for having me..

"You can follow me on Twitter at jimbotalks. It portion of the program we're going to be talking a bit about the latest developments in the Russia probe which has shifted a bit. But essentially, President Trump is now intuition of shifting the blame saying he never directed. His former personal attorney Michael Cohen to break the law. Jeff Seleny explains. I never directed him to do anything wrong. President Trump speaking out today against his longtime lawyer and fix her. Michael Cohen saying the charges that led to Cohen's three year prison sentence were intended to embarrass the president. Because what he did was all unrelated to me except for the two campaign finance charges that are not criminal and shouldn't have been on. They put that on embarrass me. They put those charges onto embarrassment, but the president's views spelled out in a flurry of tweets an interview with Fox News is at odds with the facts, he insisted that the campaign finance charges against Cohen relating to the hush money payments to porn star. Stormy Daniels and playboy playmate. Karen McDougal criminal Michael Cohen, plead guilty to something crime. But that's not true. The charges are criminal. And part of the reason Cohen received a prison sentence of three years along with tax evasion. Bank fraud in line to congress, the president increasingly isolated as friends turn on him, including National Enquirer publisher, David pecker who accepted immunity from federal prosecutors about the hush money payments. But the. President also trying to muddy the waters on that front. Let me just say I don't think I have to go check. I don't think they even paid any money to that tabloid. Okay. I don't think we made a payment to that tabloid though. It appears to be true. Trump didn't pay American media Inc. Federal prosecutors say Trump directed the company to pay McDougal to keep her from telling your story about an alleged affair during the two thousand sixteen campaign. The president had kinder words for another one time friend former national security adviser, Michael Flynn fired by Trump and now cooperating with special counsel Robert Muller's Russia probe while Trump said Flynn didn't lie. I have a feeling that. Maybe he didn't. He's a tougher kind of a guy then, but they took a general that they said didn't lie and they convinced him he did lie, and he made some kind of a deal. That's precisely what Flint pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. And it's now awaiting sentencing Jeff with that report. So let's take a look at where we are here with Julia Manchester joins us tonight. A reporter for the hill dot com. The definitive voice of Capitol Hill. Julia Manchester covers national politics as breaking news reporter at the hill. Julia good evening. Thank you for having me. Jim. Where do we stand now in this regard? The president says that I never directed. Michael Cohen to do anything wrong. If if the people at the National Enquirer, their their their parent company are are saying that they acted in accordance with with the Trump campaign. How do you specify that? In fact, what they did they did. So at the behest of the Trump campaign per se. I mean, it would require something in the way of of of a big and writing because of the actions are are understood here, but the motivation is something else again, but they're in. I guess lies the distinction between this let's say the case of former Senator John Edwards. Yeah. Absolutely. And I think it is a little I guess mighty where we stand because I think people looking at this case right now, it's very polarized. So I actually talked to a former federal prosecutor about this early earlier today, and you're seeing some people looking at this saying this is a complete slam dunk for I guess, you could say the molar camper for the Muller camp and trying to tie the president directly to. However, there's another camp of people who say not so fast because an or you know, in order to really get Trump implicated in all of this you have to be able to prove intent, and that's very hard to do according to many legal experts in this case, you know, the president is going to say that this is a civil matter. This is a private matter. This wasn't related to the campaign, and he's also not directly to the campaign, at least she's also going to say that I didn't direct this. He has said that it's a mistake that I hired Cohen says he hires money good people. But Cohen was a mistake on his part. So very muddy in terms of where we stand on this. But we'll really have to see I think there's a lot more to go for I guess to find out where this all we even the long term. I'm however, we're seeing reports come out saying that President Trump was a third person in that room in two thousand fifteen I believe with David Packer and Michael Cohen when they. Just went out. There was a decision made to make that payment. So that could put President Trump and a very difficult position. We need to make a key distinction here because it's not I guess necessarily clear to everyone who's who's listening and the distinction would be that merely paying money to someone to keep their mouth shut is per se. Not illegal it, maybe tawdry. And and the like, it it may in the eyes of many people, although not in a courtroom be admission that what we would want them to shut up about actually occurred. But that is not the issue. The issue is whether or not this was a move made to improve the president's chance of the Donald Trump's chances of being elected president. It's the be campaign finance angle that makes this at all tenable, if you don't have that leakage, then you have something that is embarrassing but not illegal, right? Absolutely. Absolutely. I think you know, the president has been trying to distance themselves from that verbiage from the campaign part of this. Like, I said before we heard him say, this was a civil matter.

She signed a nondisclosure agreement. Right. And Colin recommended to the president that they do this now porn gave him legal advice. That's not an attorney. And. I should have known if he was going to get the president. And it's kind of trouble now. If they prosecute the president on this. I'm wanted the name of every single individual that has drawn out of that seventeen million dollar pool. That's up there on Capitol Hill that have played off people who have accused members of congress and other persons of power up there to show their sexual harassment that was not their personal money that was that was that not tax money. Julia, Manchester, right? Yes. Yes. That's correct. Again, we're we're talking here about the president's money. A sheriff's point is very well taken. In fact, I'm rather surprised I guess that there is shall we say such exuberance on the part of members of congress, even democratic members of congress because it would seem to me this is a can of worms that more than a few of them would not care to have opened. Absolutely. I think democratic members of congress know, we have to look at the timing of all of this. This comes right before Democrats takeover, the majority in the House Democrats really itching to really bring out a lot of oversight against the president. And we're seeing the word impeachment really floated around, and we talked to you know, ever since these developments came out. I'm we've seen crowds really look at this. I think they're going to be cautious about this. But they're definitely going to use some oversight on this in the future their body area. Like you said, and it may not be a can of worms they want necessarily open. But in terms of investigating the president. I think this is something very interested in. Yeah. Maybe even with some collateral damage from their own ranks. We'll continue our discussion Jillian Manchester.

"Be. President Trump going all in to protect the seat in the magnolia state stumping for Hyde Smith on the eve of the election Cindy's far left opponent as far left. Oh, he's out there. Democrats. No. It's an uphill battle for Espy's. I'm Kristen Holmes reporting, and so forth tied it would appear to be just that uphill battle. A fifty six to forty four percent lead for Hyde. Smith, the incumbent Republican with a little over sixty percent of the vote counted so far this evening, and let's take a look at just what we are talking about here in terms of impact as we're joined by. Julia Manchester, a reporter for the hill dot com. Julia good evening. Thanks for having me. Absolutely. The numbers that I just read again, it's not over. And we don't know where those precincts are reporting from. But nonetheless, those roughly conform to the approximately ten point lead that had been a Smith for much of the race. So it would appear at this juncture, I would think that those comments she made may not be playing that larger role. Right. Jim, you know, we've been watching this race for a while now. And I think those comments have certainly made negative headlines for Hyde Smith in the media and garnered her some unwanted attention. However, I would say that Mississippi is still a deeply red state, you President Trump as well as governor Phil Bryant there who are extremely popular with boaters, and those are Republican figures have really gone out to campaign for high method. So she has that going in her favor. Her controversial comments. I would like to remind viewers got is still a deeply. I guess has a lot of his through a lot of controversial southern history. Eight it's wake, you know. This is a this is the state has the confederate and blood, and it's why they had a high about a lynching. Know in the nineteenth century earlier early twentieth century, so very dark racial past. And I think there are many Mississippi who are still grappling with it. However, I would say that her remarks, you know, I guess, you know, I would question if it in other states, you would be able to get away with it. However in Mississippi, it seems that Republican voters are more concerned with I guess her policy stances versus the controversial remarks made. Yeah. And I don't know to me the comments Kruk me as a remarkably insensitive, but not I would suggest a indicative of what she would actually do my guests that neither she nor door. Most anybody in two thousand eighteen would really stand in line to to watch a public hanging. Yeah. I mean, I think they were. I think we spoke with some Republican strategists who said, you know, this is that they said, we certainly don't welcome be these comments. They're awful. However, there are worst thing. She could have said, you know, we go back to the Alabama Senate race last year with ROY Moore in was certainly another a very much uphill battle for Republicans. They actually ended up. Red state democrat Senator Doug Jones. However, I would say that, you know, it's interesting to compare the Mississippi run as well as that special election in Alabama because it was actually another candidate who I would say Republicans in mainstream Republicans, including the governor were concerned about and that was Chris McDaniel he was supposed to be a potential I as a potential candidate for the spot and President Trump was even favor with him. However, I think a lot of Republicans were saying, we'll put high method there sheet, more sabotage. So I think a lot of Republicans were actually very shocked by her comments were concerned to a certain point about them. However, a lot of them said there are worse things. She could have said. It would I guess there are Worsely. She could have said, it's unfortunate. If we are in fact, using that as the litmus test of how effective the candidate. She may be Mike Espy, of course, is no stranger to Mississippi politics. In fact, I suppose before Hyde Smith was appointed to the lot the remainder of Thad Cochran term, or at least until the the the election for the final two years that he was probably much better known in Mississippi had been a congressman mistaken. He was Bill Clinton's agricultural secretary. Right. Right. And it's so, you know, going back to President Trump's comments yesterday him saying that Mike Espy doesn't belong in Mississippi and trying to paint him as a far left opponent. And President Trump has done the right to other democratic candidates across the country to try to make them paint them as extreme leftist candidates. However, Mike Espy has actually crossed party lines to work with Republicans. I would say, you know, even though it looks like high Smith is going to come out on top. And all of this the fact that he this race is this close such a deep red state actually says that he does have a lot of clout in the city. So he's very much. Well, now in the state, I think ultimately, it's a deep red stay in high school come out on top. But you know, I think the progress we're seeing with the Democratic Party in the south. We saw the Stacey Abrams and Georgia Andrew Golota in Florida. You know, it's addictive of what I would say also Baidoa work in Texas. All voted candidates lost. I think it's indicative of what direction the south is going in in a political sense into certainly in in terms of of the the spectrum of the Democratic Party, especially given some of the genuinely far left people who are now elected officials from the Democratic Party in that spectrum. You wouldn't put my guess be at the the left side of that spectrum certainly by Mississippi State. Standards. His views are are not similar to those. That are have to my knowledge ever won a statewide race in the state, but Dickerson him far left by the Democratic Party. Not really, no. In fact, I think he would have probably had some difficulty in the in the democratic caucus Eddy. In fact, managed to pull out this election victory, which as we speak is not over to be sure about about a little over two thirds of the vote counted now and still Cindy Hyde Smith, the incumbent Republican by virtue of her appointment to this seat. Still hanging onto roughly fifty six to forty four percent margin. We're speaking with Julia, Manchester reporter for the hill dot com. You mentioned Alabama. And I have heard this as a rumor, and I will pass it along as a rumor and pass it along to somebody who might be in a position to provide either some backup or to shoot it down. I have heard the rumor the Jeff Sessions might be interested in going back to Alabama and getting his old Senate seat back. Have you heard that? We have heard some rumblings of that. You know, it'll be interesting to see how that plays out Jeff Sessions very much know before he joined the Trump administration as a Senator he was very much well liked within the Republican party and within conservative circles, and I would say that among establishment Republicans. He's still very much. Well, liked however among Trump's base, you know, which is very prominent in states like Alabama. I would be curious to see how that essentially plays out. You know, I don't think the average Republican voter outside of Washington DC outside outside of our coastal bubble. That's Sara Lee cares that much about the molar investigation. And I don't think they care as much about the palace. Intrigue stories we often hear associated with the molar probe. However, I think President Trump has repeatedly l'ambassade Jeff Sessions on Twitter. And in rallies in interviews. And we saw that in the twenty sixteen presidential campaign wants the president really puts out label on you. And drives it home is based us seemed to turn we saw with Ted Cruz. Marco rubio. So you know, I would be curious to see how that goes in terms of political stance in Alabama. Also, I if just did try to launch some kind of a political comeback in Alabama. I highly doubt he would have the support of the president the president was deeply deeply offended and felt betrayed when Jeff Sessions recused himself for the bowler investigation. And this is the president that very much valued loyalty. So I doubt that the president would that Jeff Sessions would get essentially his party leadership court in that regard. It it was thought. Indeed. Of course, it was sessions initial loyalty as the first member of the Republican establishment to endorse Trump's candidacy. That first attracted him to Donald Trump, and you knew when he became the first US Senator to endorse Trump the candidate that it was almost a given that sessions would be offered his pick of a cabinet position. And so as it turned out to be as for the for the Muller prob-, I suspected a lot of people myself included would put a lot more faith in the Muller probe of every actually finds anything after nearly two years of looking around and finally mostly peripheral things and today nothing that would even remotely suggest quote, Trump campaign collusion with the Russians come back and take a look at where this will leave the congress. In fact, both congresses the the lame duck congress and the new congress, which is coming up. We're talking with. Julia Manchester reporter for the hill dot com, which of course, covers the nation's capital that only Capitol Hill, but all that happens within the beltway. And so far tonight again with a little over two thirds of the vote counted, it is about an eleven point lead for incumbent repub-. Cindy, Hyde Smith in the seat that is the final two years.

"Eight five eight zero seven. Welcome back to Jim Bohannon show as special election in Mississippi that you run off for the final two years of that. Cochran US Senate seat that election appears to be going to the incumbent Republican Cindy Hyde Smith despite some verbal missteps on her part with about three quarters of the vote. Counted she continues to hold the fifty six to forty four percent lead over former democratic congressman Bill Clinton's agriculture secretary. And as it turned out the key in this rate African American Mike Espy who has run what you'd have to say. For a democrat is a credible race in the state of Mississippi, which is about as red estate as you have out there. We're talking to Julia Manchester reporter for the hill dot com, and they of course, cover what happens not only on Capitol Hill. But elsewhere within the beltway looking ahead now to the the two congresses. I of course. We have the lame duck congress which is around for how long the period of time that we're talking about here. Julia. And do they have anything at all that they think they can get done before the publicans lose the house? Come January third. Right. So we're thinking lame duck. It goes until about January middle January. However, I would say that the score. Then, you know, there is this huge fight over keeping the government funded. That's going on right now in the center of that fight is the border wall. You know, President Trump has made immigration of real he's central issue in the media as I started when the midterms and trying to rally his Republican base. However, you know in trying to get the border wall funded. He brought this issue back into the media spotlight. You know, essentially saying that. Yeah. Using the caravan in a way to push this policy. You know, this is a campaign promise. He can't he campaigned on since twenty fifteen when he watched his presidential bid, and we've seen other Republicans really fallen through and watch it pushed for that money as well. However, we're not doing that report that Democrats into really fudge on this. They're saying they give money for border security. However, a while my questioning pushing it for them exactly, I'm just curious. What exactly do they want in the way of border security? I mean. Something that looks good. But isn't all that secure? I'm not quite sure exactly what they want. Because at one time. It seemed to me that it was a very distinct possibility that at least Chuck Schumer might go along with the idea with the president of deal amnesty for the the dreamers the existing dreamers in exchange for the wall. Right, right. It was possibility for a while. I think in terms of border security, you know, we're seeing we actually unhealthy. We talked to John Jahr messy was most likely going to be the chair of the committee and a the finance committee and the house next year, and he was saying that they're not going to budge on the wall, but they would give to border security so not being too specific. You know, we, you know, they want some sort of deal, they want some sort of deal involving amnesty or in terms, or as well as DACA. However, the president's recent rhetoric on amnesty doesn't take no that there's going to be a deal and that direction, you know, yesterday. He tweeted saying that he was by air over the weekend. He tweeted that he would like those migrants applying for asylum in to the US to in Mexico until all their papers are processed, however that wasn't communicated with the Mexican government who say. That this is not a policy there. And we at lawmakers here saying this wasn't our policy either. So lots of confusion there, you know, I think Republicans in congress are trying to you know, I guess bridge the gap between the president and Democrats try to find some kind of common road. But we're really not seeing that happening so far one eight six six five O, JIMBO our number one eight six six five zero five four six two six the incumbent Republican is winning the last of the November midterm elections in Mississippi and Marty calls in from east Texas this evening. Good evening Marty. Good evening, Jim as regards the border in bay border approach, or whatever you wanna call it this evening. The transparency of the media photo ops and things is hilarious beyond belief. And then as regards this Hyde Smith race eleven points in growing is not a close race. That's a blowout Mississippi. It's not that close business center. This is probably as well as as the Democrats done statewide at Mississippi quite a while. It's certainly not by national standards. No. But by Mississippi standards, that's not as well as Republicans to do it. And Jim I wanted to say that I love your show, you give you always bring something fun out of the blue. And when I listened to you surprised me with the explorers and things great show. Keep up the good work, man. Appreciate your your thoughts mardi. Thank you very much for your call one eight six six five zero JIMBO one eight six six five zero five four six two six th there have been I think certainly some some misleading stories, frankly, Jim. Manchester regarding the the caravan of the central part of our discussion here, but but certainly the the notion it's all a bunch of women and children a Bill that is overwhelmingly young men and be of course, it doesn't really matter either you have a legal right to into the country or you don't. And that's the one thing. Everybody in that caravan has in common. They don't have the legal right to do. So not yet. Anyway. Right. And that's what Republicans I think are saying at this point. You know, you're seeing a lot of Democrats really push this narrative, you know, we we need to welcome asylum-seekers into this country. This is benefit. I guess an essential part of US history know, give us your tired, your poor excetera. We saw that former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, criticized the photos are in the reports of teargassing I had the border. However, Republicans will continue to say that that they don't necessarily have a legal right to enter the US. And I think that's what they're going to try to push with this immigration site. Essentially, if it's gonna keep be in headlines really play a role in that regard, exactly what he's six six five zero JIMBO our number one, eight six six five zero five four six two six and more on the Senate race in a moment from.

And this is the president that very much value loyalty. So I doubt that the president would that Jeff Sessions would get essentially his party leadership court in that regard. It was thought indeed. Of course, it was sessions initial loyalty as the first member of the Republican establishment to endorse a Trump's candidacy. That first attracted him to Donald Trump, and you knew what he became the first US Senator to endorse Trump the candidate that it was almost a given that sessions would be offered his pick of a cabinet position. And so is it turned out to be as for the molar prob-? I suspected a lot of people myself included would put a lot more faith in the murder probe of ever actually finds anything after nearly two years of looking around and finally mostly peripheral things and today nothing even remotely suggest quote, Trump campaign collusion with the Russians come back and take a look at where this will leave the congress. In fact, both congresses the the lame duck congress and the new congress, which is coming up. We're talking with. Julia Manchester reporter for the hill dot com, which of course, covers the nation's capital that only Capitol Hill, but all that happens within the beltway. And so far tonight again with a little over two thirds of the vote counted, it is about an eleven point lead for incumbent repub-. Cindy, Hyde Smith in the seat that is the final.

"Lurs Larson show. Welcome back to the LARs Larson show, one of the enduring mysteries of this year's presidential politics. And the politics of Capitol Hill is why Paul Ryan house speaker soon to be gone, and he can't be gone soon. Enough for me, his well is seemingly incapable of accomplishing much of anything. Whereas Nancy Pelosi who I think is pretty darn crazy seems to be able to get just about whatever she wants. And I don't understand. So I've invited. Julia Manchester on who's a reporter for the hill to see if she can sort this out for his Julia, welcome back to the program. Thank you for having me. So if I understand the math correctly there were about seventeen democrat house members a lot of them knew who said we're not going to vote for for for Nancy Pelosi. And they said that during the campaign, they got elected. And and now all of a sudden, it seems everybody wants to do a deal with Nancy. What's going on? Right. Right. So they they've almost seemed to completely fallen in line with. And the reason for that so good at whipping votes, and I guess getting members together, you know, part of her I guess her tactic. There is because she's so good at fundraising. You know, we saw that Alexandra Cossio court has number members youngest member of youngest incoming number of congress, essentially expressed an interest in getting on the energy committee anti Pelosi you supposedly had talked to her about that. So she's making promises to these members that are skeptical about her, and I think a lot of these members know quite a bit of cloud when it comes to the fundraising world. So I think for now they're saying we're going to go with it. However, I think in the future, you know, eventually that's going to change that skepticism will continue to grow within the Democratic Party. But julia. If you've made a campaign promise, I understand the old joke is that, you know, most people who run for office any kind of office make all kinds of promises and that Americans have kind of a low set of expectations for politicians. We say all they're they're they're lying is just a campaign promise. But if you've been in explicit promising I will not vote for this woman. And then one of the first things you do before you were even sworn in is say, yeah, I can cut a deal with her. I'll throw that promise and my voters right under the bus. I would think that that wouldn't bode well for somebody who then if they want to stay in the congress have to run for reelection to short years after breaking their promise like that. Well, to be honest to towns quite a bit like Washington. Candidates on the trail really make these promises, especially you know, the progressive tried to distance themselves from Nancy Pelosi because this is a bigger movement than just Nancy Pelosi. I think you're seeing it on the Republican side as wellness President Trump has been you know, this movement away from Washington. However, I think when a lot of these candidates got to Washington, they realized that in order for them. They feel that in order for them to get their agenda. Real on Capitol Hill. They're going to have to do some maneuvering in for they're their I guess they're frame assigned right now that's going to involve going through Nancy Pelosi right now. Well, I don't know. I guess I just would assume that that I don't lie to my audience. I I sometimes tell my audience that I've changed a position on one thing or another. But I certainly don't say I'm going to always do this or I'm never going to do that. And then come back later and simply say well in order. To get some things done. I I had to break that promise that one just doesn't make sense. Right. Right. And actually, you know, we'll have to see how it goes two years from now when they're up for re election, you know, the democratic house is able to get things that their policies their constituents want accomplished than they might be locked them. I think the democratic base depending on where you look so with the progressive caucus a lot of them come from the coast, New York, California, they're going to those constituents are going to want a lot more liberal measures. You know, universal health care climate change, those kind of kinds of initiatives pass. However, it gets a little muddled go into the rest spouse more of the moderate democratic carry. That's where it's going to be a challenge for Nancy Pelosi, and I think that agenda if Democrats are able to you know, I it. There'd be election will essentially I think depend on what policies are able to get done. I don't know voters are going to necessarily hold their promise promise on weather to vote for Nancy Pelosi in an internal election. I guess to heart two years from now. Well, and I guess the thing I worry about then is she seems so very capable Paul. Ryan who talked to really great game about getting funding for the wall. For example, the present one of the president's signature issues now has a lame duck congress, and he's oh, yeah. We're gonna get all wrapped up by the seven. So we can all go home for Christmas. Well, I'm more in favor of saying, why don't I in fact, Louie Gohmert has told me a member of congress from Texas. He said, I think we ought to stay as long as it takes to get all the business done. We have to get done before January the third what's wrong with that one. Ryan even on his way out the door. I almost wonder if he is more concerned about protecting his potential client list on K. Street that he is about getting getting the work of the American people done and getting the work done that he promised to get done. Yeah. I think that's the frustration with a lot of President Trump's Republican base. So I think there's almost Republican base is right now. Right. So you have your more moderate Republican base, which is teams that and as well as President Trump's Republican basis, President Trump's side of the spectrum, and his base are frustrated with people like speaker, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, and there, I guess the constantly cut deals with the Democrats. So I think we're going really see that play out in this government shutdown battle coming up. You know, it'll be interesting to see whether you know, the wall, whether Republicans, and I guess there last couple of date last couple of weeks in congress are going to budge on the wall because many Republicans have campaigned on that promise, the President Trump. However, I think a lot of Democrats are really going to push back against that. So we're going to see some more gridlock. And if they do that if if they end up saying, we're we. We can't keep our promises, but the Democrats who are decidedly in the minority. Now, they've got the house, but they don't have the Senate. They don't have the presidency if they turn around and say, well, we're capable of actually getting some things done. And if the Democrats managed to hold the Republicans hostage in a way that the Republicans couldn't even get done when they were in the majority in both houses and had the White House's. Well, it isn't going to be a great set of facts to go into the twenty twenty election with not for the president. And certainly not for members of congress. Is it not at all? And I think one of the American people talk frustration with Washington and lawmakers is the apparent inability to get things done in the constant gridlock with congress. So I think of House Democrats under Nancy Pelosi. I do think that is a fear among many House Republicans fancy clothes. He is so good at what things votes, and I think getting her members in line to see about changes with the new progressive members in the next congress that she's so good at that. You know? Americans undecided. Voters voters may have gone for Obama won election and Trump the other election year, they're gonna look at that. And they're going to I think be more attracted to the Democrats because.

"House Republicans fire off more subpoenas before Democrats take control in January. The House Judiciary committee is issued subpoenas for former FBI director James Comey and for former attorney general, Loretta Lynch. The committee is requesting private depositions from Komi on December third and from Lynch on December fourth C, N N national correspondent, Alex Marquardt joins us now with details and Jim Komi. He didn't sort of miss a beat there. He responded to this subpoena with tweet say Brioni responded. Very quickly responded this morning, essentially saying that he's happy to sit down for another one of these hearings. But he is saying that he's gonna fight the committee's decision there to have it be behind closed doors. Now, the tweet that he posted today says happy thanksgiving got a subpoena from House Republicans. I'm still happy to sit in the light and answer all questions, but I will resist a closed door thing because I've seen enough of their selective. Leaking and distortion. Let's have a hearing and invite everyone to see brianna we've also heard from comas. Lawyer who is responding to that subpoena calling it an abuse of process and saying that he will go to court to try to make it. So the former FBI director testimony is in the public. This has to do with the FBI handling of the Clinton Email probe and also the Russia investigation. What do Republicans hope to learn here? Well, you touched on it earlier. This is really about the timing. And it's one of the last chances for House Republicans to do anything with this pro because they're about to lose power in the house, and with the Democrats taking over they could do away with this probe altogether. So in theory, the Republicans led by judiciary chairman Bob Goodlatte are still trying to question Komi over what he called the extremely careless handling by Hillary Clinton of highly classified information, and then they're also going after Loretta Lynch for her possible influence in all this, and you can remember, of course, that infamous meeting that she had on the tarmac with former President Bill Clinton, but really Republicans know that their days are numbered here. So this is a way for them to get in their last shot. While these still can all right? Alex marquardt? Thanks so much. I want to bring in Julia Manchester. She's a reporter for the hill. And we also have Michael Zeldin Robert Muller's former special assistant at the DOJ with us. What do you make of this? Julia of what Republicans are doing here. So I would definitely call this a parting shot at this point. They know that in a couple of weeks there are essentially going to be out of power. It's Democrats coming in we've seen on the judiciary incoming who's assuming going to be house. Fish chairman, Jerry Nadler has said he will subpoena. Various members connected to the ongoing Russian Muller's pro however. Yeah, call this a parting shot it also comes as President Trump really submitted his questions to Muller's investigation. So a lot going on the timing is very interesting, but Democrats will call very politically motivated. Is there anything that? They could learn Michael. I mean is there anything else to cover that? We don't already know. I think not I think actually this has been testified to by Komi and by. Loretta Lynch previously. There were lead roulette Loretta. Aspect of this involves her asking Komi do refer to the Clinton investigation as a matter and not an investigation and Qomi said that that was part of the reason that he went forward with his famous July press conference with so completely backfired. If that was what? In fact, she had and then Lynch and Clinton Bill had a tarmac meeting, which they said was a ridiculous meeting at the time. It was more. Right..
