"What I think we really need to do, let's start with stablecoins. Stablecoins are a discrete category. They're relatively easy to understand. I've got a framework out there that's very similar to the framework that Cynthia lummis and Kirsten gillibrand came up with. If we could get something done on stablecoins, that would be like this huge step forward. I think it would be extremely encouraging. It wouldn't by itself solve all the problems. We still have the issue of how you decide what's a security and what's not a security. But if we could, if we could resolve the question of who can issue stablecoins under what conditions, how is it regulated? I think that would be very, very constructive. Be a great first step. And then, hey, after that, you know, we take on the next challenge. How close do you think we are to doing something like that? I'm hoping that I'm quite close to announcing a bipartisan stablecoin Bill. Getting it across the goal line this year will still be very difficult. I'm not going to not going to get you. I think we could get to a. Introducing a bill that has a bipartisan list of co sponsors and that's a huge step in the right direction. The house was trying to negotiate something between Maxine waters and Patrick mchenry, the chair and ranking member, respectively on our counterpart committee in the House. They really were able to quite get there. If we could get a bipartisan product that dealt with this, it put a lot of pressure on the administration to come to the table and get this resolved. And the administration, I will say in fairness, some in the administration understand that we really should do this. We really need to get it done. The question is, can we get them to a place where they'll do it in a fashion that allows the space to thrive as opposed to be stifled? I think that's very important. And that's kind of key, right? Which is a reason I think we like stablecoin regulation as a starting point is because at least when you're talking about the centralized stablecoins, stablecoin, USD C from coinbase and circle, right? These are very kind of known quantities. These are centralized products. In order to do that in a way that doesn't stifle innovation of some of the things that we're building in DeFi. We interestingly enough, it was revealed that SPF was that same bank with freed behind FTX. It was very involved in some of the legislation behind the proposed legislation of the D.C. CPA. And some of that felt to the crypto industry, the crypto community, like there was sort of a pulling up the ladder, an entrenchment of regulatory capture entrenchment of a larger institutions now to FTX had become an institution, these banks, and kind of push against DeFi. So making certain things into centralized finance, illegal, making all front ends of decentralized finance.

"I said, thank you so much for that little bit of because then when Joe Biden forgave ten and $20,000 student debt, everybody would be complaining that they would be taxed on that loan forgiveness. And she made that so it didn't happen very quietly, very simply. And she looked at me and she said she gave me two snaps up and then she licked her finger and put it on her rear end and went. Oh my goodness. And then she goes, she goes, it's all about planning. And I was like, oh my God, you're my hero. So that was just one of the coolest things to be able to sit and watch the president's speak, watch Nancy Pelosi. Senator Schumer speak, the president of international brotherhood of electrical workers, Boston one O three introduced the president and then to just be able to hang out with all those incredible people that day was truly, truly joyful. So that's my toast for joy. That is awesome. So that reminds me of, I got to meet Kirsten gillibrand one time and I got to talk to her. And I think her specifically for her work on the military justice improvement act work that she has done, which I know it's not passed. However, it is very meaningful to me that she is working on this and it was really interesting because this was like, this was when Hillary Clinton was running. So there's like this room full of big donors. I think I was the only woman in this room, and she just said real quick, I just want to thank you for this. It means a lot to me. And she stopped and she came and talked to me for like ten minutes and all these dudes are like, who the hell does she think she is? But it was really meaningful that I said something very specific she did. She loved talking about it. And so Kirsten gillibrand recently was trying to get the cadet act pass. I don't know if you know about this one. Yeah, yeah. So they actually slipped it into the defense. I think the defense authorization bill, something that's NDAA. Thank you. I was like, I know they slipped it into something. So now for all of the cadets that are at all of the academies. It is basically okay if you're a parent because right now what they do is they actually force people to get abortions or leave, which is crazy. And I think a lot of people don't realize, you know, when you don't have the right to make those decisions, the government can make you get an abortion just as well as they can prevent you from one.

Kirsten Gillibrand: These Justices Have Crossed a Line
"Let's have some peace and quiet. Unless you're Kirsten gillibrand, my friend texted me over the weekend, like I said when I was flying back saying you can't believe the way Kirsten gillibrand. The New York senator is ranting and raving to Jake tapper on CNN. Here's a little bit of what she sounded like. I'm very concerned that these justices have crossed a line that no one believed would be crossed. That they would purposefully create the impression that they would not overrule settled precedent and that it was not only deserving of do weight and the importance of precedent, but because it had been reaffirmed that it deserves more weight and then go ahead and overturn it, especially with the reasoning that justice Alito makes in this draft opinion. It's outrageous. And so Jake, back to the point. I think we should get rid of the filibuster. I think we should vote for our values. I believe we should fight for everything we believe in at this moment. This is about basic equality. It's about whether women in America have a right to make these decisions. Whether they have a right to decide who and when they have children with under what circumstances, you know, I wish Jake tapper would have said, senator, are you glad your mom didn't abort you? I mean, it's Mother's Day. Are you relieved that your mom made the choice to bring you into the world?

"It's the nicole sandler. Show welcome to a one day. Where at the midway point of the week still still a long ways before the weekend. But we'll get there. I hope i'm welcome to the show. I need to start today with a correction because occasionally even i get things wrong. I try not to but once in a while you know yesterday. I was telling you about kathy hokuto she. She's the lieutenant governor of new york and chances are pretty good that she will have to step up and fill out the remainder of andrew cuomo's term because there's no way he can stay in office As you heard yesterday the attorney general of new york letitia. James release the report. That was what four months in the making after a lot of allegations of of Sexual harassment claims against the governor which he pooh-poohed and said you know let's have an investigation. And i thought that was the right thing to do. So you have an investigation well. The investigation was completed and attorney. General Trish james tips james. Sorry announced it yesterday and it was pretty damn devastating. The independent investigation has concluded that governor andrew cuomo sexually harass multiple women and in doing so violated federal and state law Specifically the investigation found that governor andrew cuomo sexually harass current and former new york state employees by engaging an unwelcome and nonconsensual touching and making numerous offensive comments of a suggestive sexual nature that created a hostile work environment for women. The investigators independently corroborated and substantiated. These facts through interviews and evidence including contemporaneous notes and communications. Severance will be made available to the public along with the report. This investigation was started after a number of women publicly alleged that they had been sexually harassed by governor cuomo and on march first of this year. The governor's office made a referral to my office. Pursuant to state lost sixty three eight regarding bees allegations so so Governor cuomo yesterday after the announcement by attorney general James was shocked. I tell you so surprised. How can any of these women that. I touched that. I made suggestive remarks to that. I got uncomfortably personal. With how could they ever of thought. I did anything wrong. I learned that from my parents. I kissed everybody and then he played this really kinda creepy slide. Show well So again i'm sort of going around about way to apologize for bad information. I gave you yesterday about kathy hobo. I was correct in that. She is a very blue doggy. type democrat. She's what. I call a conservatism. She comes from a conservative part of new york in fact. Here's the real story. Forget what i told you yesterday. I must i thought i remembered the that was story fabricated. Some great tale. What happened kathy. Focal now lieutenant governor of new york since two thousand fifteen was elected to congress from. New york's twenty sixth congressional district. She won a four way special election to fill the seat. Vacated by the republican chris lee who did something sleazy in creepy and had to resign so she was the first democrat elected from that district and forty years. Which explains why. She's kind of blue doggy because she's in a conservative district. Upstate new york now yesterday. I i got mixed up with kirsten gillibrand. I was thinking that she took jila brands. House seat when gillibrand was named to the senate to replace hillary clinton when she became secretary of state. That is wrong. I was wrong. I'm nicole sandler. I somehow misremembered something. And i was convinced yesterday. I'm just real an off. These bags like i remember them and i must've been high not yesterday but when it happened. I i don't know so anyway. I apologize kirsten gillibrand represented new york's twentieth congressional district She was first elected in two thousand seven and only served a couple of years. Because then governor paterson david paterson named kirsten gillibrand congresswoman to fill hillary clinton's senate seat that part i got right That's when hillary clinton became secretary of state had nothing to do with kathy hokuto. I think i'd just lump them together because they were too conservative dam women from upstate new york but anyway once in a while i get things wrong. That's why i wanted to correct it. Thank you to. John listener john. Who corrected me on twitter. It's like oh shit. I'm gonna have to copy there. So yeah so i screwed that one up however kirsten gillibrand once you got into the senate has become immeasurably more progressive. Do not do not confuse that with me saying that she is progressive. Gillibrand is far from progressive. but she's more progressive leaning in the senate than she ever was in the house representing a conservative district. So cathy hokuto do. I have any hope that she'll be better as governor than she wasn't congressman vilma and not necessarily but. I don't know a whole lot about her. We'll talk to howie klein tomorrow about kathy hokuto. Not that he knows anything more And i don't know. Lieutenant governor of new york doesn't get a lot of responsibility. It's sorta like vice president So i don't know. But i guess she'll be better than andrew cuomo which isn't saying much cause he's a slime. He has the slime on the tv screen anyway. So that's the first thing i needed to talk to you about so got that out of the way i apologize. I hate giving out wrong information. I usually when i real- it off from the top of my head. I'm pretty confident that i know what i'm talking about and i usually do again yesterday. It was wrong. So there's.

"A moment to watch the watch. The video recording of cuomo's reaction to the report. And i'm actually i'm physically -ill by what he did as a survivor sexual assault. But also as someone a woman in the world who's dealt with sexual harassment. I found a sickening the way he way handle that on unhappy elaborate. But i want me to be able to get a word in before i just start rampton. Yeah because he actually didn't do it live either. He taped this response. Oh no yeah so. You watched a recording of a recording. Yeah it was also sickening to me. And i was immediately thrown back into the fight. I've been fighting for the last ten years with military sexual assault which is and you know. The state government this executives the state government office military different ones federal one state. But they're both government institutions and the fight that we've been fighting oddly enough with kirsten gillibrand to take the decision Whether to deal with and prosecute sexual assault and harassment out of the hands of the commanders because of this major conflict of interest would if the commander is the assaulter or and in every case whoever is harassing you is in the chain of command without commander and so we wanted to have a place a safe place to report outside of that chain of command and that was where my i thought went to a after all of the memories of of harassment and assault came flooding back in a government institution. So i was sickened and triggered. And it's it's disgusting. And i've i can relate to every single one of these accusations is i think most women can at some point in their lives relate to unwanted comments unwanted touching and what i think is one of the more important elements here the hostile work environment and fear of reporting and speaking out which is again why in the military. I wanted that taken out of the chain of command. And now i'm thinking in all government institutions. This needs to be Something to be considered because when we do investigations like this. It's for the you know for the core of the matter in the target of the matter but also how we're gonna fix it going forward and that's how i would fix this. Going forward is to give people a safe place to speak out and report where they aren't. They don't feel that hostile work environment because of the power of the person. That's that's harassing salting them. Yeah i mean there's a lot. I'm so you mentioned hierarchy in power in the right way to have these investigations also given your own experience in the military. I think this is a People's reactions to this are later right so far. What is me so happy about. Our conversation is you. And i have not brought in partisan politics to this and we shouldn't. We don't need to cuomo did that What i think's important share. I guess i before returning to the Trouble me so much about cuomo is a person. I wanna talk about the institutional perspective.

It's a pattern of behavior It is a toxic workplace culture detailed in the report top aides to cuomo essentially protecting him and so then it's a really tough apartment The fight instinct. He's look again. He's a proud stubborn man in on the one hand just as a human nature. You understand the instinct to fight I think there will be additional conversations but from what the governor just said. It was recorded message that he made That was total defiance. He said i accept responsibility but he denies the specifics He says he's brought in a renowned expert to redo every little piece of the sexual harassment policies in his office including with him So he's trying to turn the page and he's trying to in in some ways. He is questioned in many ways. I shouldn't say in some ways. Let's not sugarcoat this. He's questioning the credibility of his accusers. Right of question. Yeah well. I said this on the air you know. There's a trump the aspect of this was done before trump. You know people did this before. Trump trump trump aggressively. Just you know it's not true. They're lying Attack them and try to move on kenny. Can he do that Look he's a very powerful man in the state of new york a. however he's always been a loner he does not have a lot of friends I interviewed palmer. Jones is one of the progressives in the new york delegation. Who said he has to go Kirsten gillibrand seen Senator from new york along with chuck schumer Democratic senator who are more senior if you will in their Years in politics that he has to go to new york. City mayor said he hadn't read the report and detail yet. From what he had seen. Its disqualifying Lot of members of the assembly saying that so the governor is not an island right now But to the point you were making trump was often on an island And he just kept fighting his way through and surviving That's an open question It's an open question And again i think the next political piece of it is what is surprising and state say and then we go from there. Well you know but you painted the difference at the same time you painted the similarity. The difference is that virtually. No republican had the decency or courage to support the women who credibly accused donald trump. So he was not on an island and here Even before letitia. James re investigation today early on there were a ton as you said of prominent democrats who were willing to be very critical of the behavior of cuomo so getting back to the first of your two questions. John king a couple minutes ago the second of which is what is the president saying you say he may say something today. What is the assembly. Do the democrats a lot of them. There weren't shy as i say even before this report. What are they doing. How soon do they do it. I think the how soon part will know probably by the time we speak next. Tuesday i the state. The house speaker speaker quickly issued a statement saying that. This report was damning He founded gut wrenching And that it would be added to the ongoing assembly investigation..

We've asked you on the show before about being out. Front in calling for senator al franken to resign back in two thousand seventeen after allegations of sexual misconduct. More recently. Joined other prominent democrats in calling for governor cuomo to resign in the face of his own scandals. But there are people like matt gaetz. Who's also facing some pretty serious allegations but with very few within his party calling on him to step down. What do you make of the inconsistencies here. And are these purity tests only hurting one side. So i wouldn't call a sexual harassment a- purity test i think it is important for my values that when you have individuals male or female come forward with serious allegations and you have them corroborated and you have multiple allegations that are similar over time. We are asked as leaders our opinions on these issues and whether we believe the people that are coming forward whether we believe that behavior is appropriate or inappropriate for an elected leader. And it's just part of my values. I think sexual harassment in the workplace is problematic. And i've been working to change the rules and laws here in the senate. I've been working to change the rules and laws in the military and so i do take allegations of sexual harassment seriously as well as allegations of sexual assault and so i do my best to think through these issues to search my conscience and then when asked my judgment about whether i believe these allegations and whether those allegations are consistent with the role that person's playing i give my opinion and that's all i can do and i think that's what we are asked to do so santa come see us again because we always like when you come your concise in your clear and you talk about the things that matter to americans saw.

"In how the military handles sexual violence and you've recently been spearheading a bill to take prosecution of military sex crimes out of the chain of command and hand them to a trained prosecutor. Can you explain why this is so important. So unfortunately we have a scourge of sexual violence in the military. And it's been there for as long as we've had the military in fact What's been happening over. the past. Ten years is approximately twenty thousand cases of sexual assault every year and most recently about seven thousand of them get reported but only about two hundred and fifty ending conviction so we have so little cases going to trial and ending conviction and the military has promised to take care of this for ten years. I've been on the armed services committee and every year we do flee put four legislation to try to make a difference but the one reform that i think will make all the difference. Which is the one. The survivors have asked for is to allow a trained military prosecutor to look at these cases and decide whether they should go forward or not. Not the commander because the commander is not a trained lawyer. He's not trained in military justice or criminal justice and There's unfortunately too much bias. We also have just gotten a report from fort hood after the death of vanessa. Gin that said that at fort hood the command climate was so toxic that it was permissive for sexual assault and sexual harassment so our solution is to let these serious crimes go outside the chain of command to a train prosecutor and it's now supported by sixty five. Bipartisan senators which is a watershed moment to perhaps make the greatest change to military justice in generation. Senator what you've been garnering support for this important legislation you've gotten attention for working across the aisle with republicans alike josh holy and ted cruz. Who are two of the biggest pushes of trump's big lie now. Some democrats in congress have refused to work with anyone who went along with trying to overturn the election and denied the insurrection. They wrong to do that. No every senator makes her judgement. What's best for their states. And what they want to do. As a senator. I have always reached across the aisle and on this issue of military sexual assaults there so few bills in congress that have both ted cruz and bernie sanders on the same bill. The fact that we're able to bring people together both senator. Schumer and senator mcconnell have voted for this bill so this bill needs bipartisan support. And there's no reason why. I can't work with anyone in congress because that is my job. My job is to get things done for new yorkers and get things done for the american people so i can put the partisan politics aside and just find that common ground to build something meaningful. That's what i did with josh holly. It's what i'm doing now with. Joni ernst joni ernst is the only republican female combat veteran in the senate and so when she joined this effort this year. It made a huge difference in mobilising. More people to join our effort well. Bipartisanship of course is a commendable goal. But we haven't seen much gift from republicans on a lot of things and not a single. Gop lawmakers voted for biden's president. Biden's kobe relief package and the upcoming senate vote on a commission to investigate. The insurrection isn't really expected to get the ten republican votes needed to pass. Mitch mcconnell actually said recently that one hundred percent of his focus is on blocking president biden in the face of all of that and knowing democrats likely won't be in the majority forever. Is this emphasis on bipartisanship. A mistake i mean should. Should there be more executive action so i think the the biden administration is taking executive action appropriately in many places and one of the reasons why we past the first cove relief package through reconciliation with democrat. Votes was because it was so necessary. Worst tilling an urgent economic and health care crisis across our country and so the moment were in demands robust response and so i do support even the next cova package being done through reconciliation with just democratic votes because the urgency is so great and the need is so great so there are times when bipartisanship is absolutely appropriate and can work but there are times when you have to just move forward because you've promised the american people to help them and there's no greater urgency than responding to the cova crisis with healthcare money with money for food stamps and children who don't have enough food responding with money for small businesses and infrastructure. And this is something i know. Everyone on this show cares about. Infrastructure is the roads and the bridges and the high speed rail and the rural broadband and the new. It systems but it's also the soft infrastructure that allows people to go to work like getting our schools open making sure we have affordable daycare. Making sure we have a national paid leave program So these are essential parts of recovery. And that's why. I think perhaps this next cove released build back better. Bill should have both that human infrastructure and that traditional infrastructure. So that together we can get everyone back to work and get this economy moving again. While senator gillibrand i just want to say i really commend you. Working across the aisle. I have all my family. Members are in the military including my sister in law and i have personal friends who have been violently assaulted in the military. And let me tell you these women do not care queer working with you can work with satan himself as long as this stops happening and you can stop one more assault so i commend because i think seeing the bigger picture is really important right now. One place where. I've been outspoken about the need for bipartisanship is on federal. Paid family leave. Which is i know something. You also have been advocating for president biden folded with his massive plan flood four trillion dollar infrastructure spending bills which goes beyond roads and bridges including human infrastructure. Like family leave and free college. I worry.

Congress Tackles Military Sexual Assault
"And institutional changes in the military that would target the growing problem of sexual violence within the armed forces. Critics and victims say the current practice of reporting sexual assault up the chain of command leads to the little to no justice for the victims and often exacerbates the problem. Defense secretary Austin said that he supports the proposed solution of replacing military chains of command with independent military lawyers. It's a recommendation from the Independent Review Commission on sexual assault and sexual harassment in the military, But I fully support removing the prosecution of sexual assaults and related crimes. From the military chain of command. We are prepared to work with Congress to amend the Uniform Code of Military justice. IRC also recommended the inclusion of others special victims crimes inside this independent prosecution system. To include domestic violence, and I support this as well.

Saturday Night On The Circle
Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand Call for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to Resign
"In regards to sexual harassment story we're dealing with essentially unethical but not illegal behavior. But that's burying of the lead because in this case is vastly more important to be or to talk about the doctoring of official figures that he had nursing home deaths from the justice, part men, officials, New York legislators and, more importantly, the general public. You're listening to Saturday night on the circle. I'm your humble host Ethan Hampshire producer Donnie on the board. Of course, I'm referring to the ongoing scandal of Governor Cuomo. And it appears things are just getting worse. Republicans finally waking up to the fact that they understood up and do something, even though they're not in a position of power in the state of New York in the New York State Assembly On Monday, they announced an impeachment resolution against Governor Cuomo, saying they believe Democratic governor has lost credibility and trust and has an inability. The lead of the state. Of New York. This is amid his sexual harassment allegations which have been levied against him. Investigators are investigations already underway into the handling of his Corona virus pandemic. State Assembly Minority Leader Will bar play announced Republicans won't be able to force the vote or wouldn't be able to force the vote but would keep pounding the issue. They received a quick payoff because Thursday the situation there already changed now. Currently the investigation not far yet far along and focused on that the top members of Cuomo's coronavirus task force, the Albany Times Union, reported, which cited to source with direct knowledge of the matter. Neither Cuomo or administration officials have yet at this point I've been accused of wrongdoing when it comes to either of the matters now. Thursday, Majority of state legislators called for his right Resignation, including Democrats. The Democrats launched an impeachment impeachment investigation, and police in the state capital say they stood ready for an investigate to investigate a groping allegation. At least 100 21, members of the State Assembly and Senate's have said publicly they believe Cuomo should quit office. Now, according to Italia, taken by The Associated Press count includes 65 Democrats and 56 Republicans. Which is an astounded figure, Democrat Assemblywoman Alan Gunther said. All of us are extremely disappointed. I think there's no room in the world right now, for that kind of behavior. He should have known better now, one of the aspects of this story that I think few people have mentioned is that that this is Ah. This is a culture of the Andrew Cuomo administration. This is a news. This isn't a surprise. People who have been associate ID with Andrew Cuomo have been well familiar with this behavior. Now AIDS air, starting to speak about the culture in the office, which required Cuomo to groom and hire attractive young women to be in his employ, which is a clear abuse of the power dynamic when you're specifically seeking that type of situation Mission and setting that type of situation up. It gets better because now Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and majority of House Democrats from New York, including representatives Jerry Nadler and exact Alexandria Cossio Cortez joined the chorus on Friday, calling for the governor to resign. Nadler, the powerful chair of the House Judiciary Committee, said that Latino James investigation into the harassment allegations against the governor should Continue, but there's a difference between formal investigations that may end up in charge is any question of confidence in our political leadership of Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of the people of New York and Governor Cuomo must resign and that was coming from Jerry Nadler. So, yes, even Democrats now joining the chorus of calls For Governor Cuomo to resign, and it's amazing how the course of one individual can be completely changed in just a year, because you know, a year ago, this guy was being featured prominently on National News by July, Anthony Fauci said that New York was the model of pandemic response. Hey, want a primetime Emmy and then now the world Is collapsing around Andrew Cuomo. And it's just unfortunate that the central focus is being centered around the sexual harassment allegations and not the nursing home death cover up because as far as anyone is concerned, like I said, the outside of the segment is far as we know. Right now. The sexual harassment allegations are not criminal in nature, they are merely unquestionably unethical. But that is wholly different and magnitude from the nursing home death from the causing of individuals to lose members of their family. Certainly that represents a Maura significant and agree Jin's egregious breach of trust from the New York governor. Pretty interesting stuff. Also representatives an idea of the last quest. Who served in Congress since 1993 said there's only one way that the governor can truly restore accountability in confidence to his office. He must resign. Interesting stuff. You're listening to

If you want to add your voice of this conversation We had some real oddities happening yesterday as what happened the night before, last to the canned the capital. Has become highly politicized. Rather than a roundly condemning what occurred. And and saying that those who did this shall be punished. Response of the Democrats has been to say. Yeah, Those people were bad people, but orange man really bad. Nancy Pelosi, for example, saying, we must remove Donald Trump from office right now this very minute but citing sedition, as he did yesterday. He must be removed from office. While it's only 13 days left any day could be a horror show for America any day and the next 13 days to be a horror show he must be removed immediately. Chuck Schumer agrees that the president clearly incited violence. Make no mistake about it reprehensible acts yesterday were incited by the president of the United States. Yesterday's events would not have happened without him. If there were no president Trump this would not have happened plain and simple. No. There you go. Clearly. He must be guilty because he exists. That seems to be the internal logic there, and Kirsten Gillibrand, who was a candidate for the presidency and the Democrats side for about a minute and a half this season. Said. You know, not only is he a bad person, but he's seditious as well. He incited the violence of the riots. Yesterday he had a rally at the White House where he told them to March the capital. He told them that there had to be consequences. He told them that the election was stolen and he riled them. Up S O that is inciting violence That could be Looked at as tradition.

But we've been tossing that word around a whole lot for last couple years has peace Edition has be sedition without defining that that is a term that is Not very clearly defined in today's lexicon, but it sounds pretty dangerous, doesn't it? That must be sedition. This is the president again. I'll play this somebody you know later on the show as well. This is the President Day before yesterday.
