"On this day and on remarkable history jonas salk said of course we'll take it. No one wants to get polio. People aren't stupid you know. Thank you house. Ban michael kelly. Hey paula poundstone. Hey you know what's going. On these days i've noticed and i know you've noticed too Contentious time we're living in right now. It's fractious i was just on vacation and and some of my family are anti vaccine. There's no yes. did you talk to them about it. You know what. I don't know what to say like it all seems so obvious and i'm nine you say. Did you say anything. I did and i don't think i made any headway at all. You know the fact that. I don't argue. That well doesn't mean that i'm wrong. That's what's frustrating. That's exactly right. You don't have to be right to win an argument. And if you're right you don't always win but paula. This is going to blow your mind but by amazing happenstance. We have an expert on that subject right here. Right now on our podcast. No he adds true meal. Caccio is the former acting solicitor. General of the united states. Partnered hogan lapels and paul and patricia. Saunders professor of national security law at georgetown university law center at my old job american lawyer named him the 2017 litigator of the year and he has argued more supreme court cases than any other minority attorney in. Us history. please. Welcome neil konczal. Everybody a. that's quite a resume. Neil well thank you and you know a huge fan of you guys and thank you for having me. Oh well that's very sweet of you. Do you make your students like raise. Their hands and say paul and patricia. Saunders professor of national security law georgetown university law jenner absolutely the whole title. Oh absolutely yeah my middle name. It's it's good to commend that kind of respect. Well i am a big admire. I've listened to any of your supreme court arguments. I've listened to your whole courtside. Many podcasts series. I see you on msnbc. And i think you've been on the news hour before i am. I bow down at your feet. And i'm hoping that you can help me with my deficit in the area of arguing. Are there different types of arguments like like supreme court argument or the argument. I have with adam. Sound of music is an all time great movie or just like the fucking vaccine argument or a. Why do i have to do. All the work argument they different. Yeah i think arguments are totally different so first of all. Obviously the audience matters so like you talking to your listeners is different than you talking to your family and so on. So that's one big thing but the other big thing is the topic really matters in so you know you talk about the sound of music versus you know the vaccine. I i think that there are certain things you can get away with in a argument that you can't get away with the legal argument so i imagine it's a bit call out like having your own. Hbo special like the audience. Is there for you. they already like you. You can rip them a bit. You can make some personal jokes but if you try. That is the fourth standup comic in the night. In a dive bar you might not find your target audience quite is receptive and that is a really great record. I prefer the vaccine to the sound of music. Oh jeez i think the most important thing is to actually have empathy for the other position and for whoever the decision maker is. If you're sometimes you're arguing to your partner whatever. And so she or. He's the decision maker but sometimes you have a third party. Is the decision maker. A judge you know aboard you know You know an audience. Whatever so you gotta understand really where they're coming from and the only way to understand where they're coming from is to take your own ego out a bit and to be a true listener. Are you talking about the judge the decision maker or your opponent in the argument about so you know to the extent you have both of those other players. You've got a separate decision maker. Plus a opponent of some sort. I think you really gotta get into both of their heads. And you know if it's just a conversation among the two of you about whether the sound of music is as bad of a mute movie as one of your thinks it is then you just really have to try and get into the other person's head and understand where they're coming from and only then i think can you actually make a decent argument. Why do you say in your tedtalk. That confidence is the enemy of persuasion. Well you know. I think the pre there's a lot of premium that people place on sounding confident in arguments. And i think it's a really pernicious myth. It's it's actually Like kind of the terrorists of a clown mentality that you've described comedy You're led to believe that your fuel is entirely internal and if you feel a certain way and confident in the case of an argument or unhappy in the case of comedy then you can achieve peak performance. you know. that's the. I think the myth and the real success comes when you look outside of yourself and you make a connection with other people. And whether that's you know your partner in your arguing or a panel of judges. I don't think it really matters I think the idea is to really just sit there. And say i need to get into this other person's head understand what is motivating her hand and then answer and so. That's why like. I've seen so many times both in life in court people stand up and make arguments but they're always caricatures of the other side's position. They're not the right. Arguments are not the ones that are the most persuasive to third parties or what's motivating other side. It's kind of it. Sounds like you watch some cable news. As opposed exactly. I mean if you work if you just watch tucker on any given night. He's actually not making you know he's not answering a real argument on the other side. He's joe tucker. Carlson is arguing in bad faith. I don't wanna characterize motivations. Because i don't know the guy but certainly it's not an effective way to persuade anyone..

"What the president's namesake company was doing was a pattern of fraud a pattern of cheating and having that revealed whether it's because he's prosecuted or in a trial down the road where the new york attorney general and the. Da put on evidence that has come up of some sort for this. President ultimately indeed spoken like a former fed. Tonight's last word goes to peter. Baker the other great writer in the two great writer. Peter you covered donald trump for a long time. What are people about to learn about. How the trump business was run where they will see obvious and immediate parallels to how the trump west wing was run. Well look. I think there's been a long history here in a long record in the business world. That was examined before the two thousand sixteen election and obviously a lot more in the four years sets. I mean we have seen. This is a business that has been obviously successful in a lot of ways but many other ways has cut corners. This is a president who has a businessman didn't pay is contractors was sued literally thousands of times by people who said that he owed them money Who went bankrupt repeatedly who boasted that. When he went bankrupt in atlantic city we had casinos in a lot of people were hurt by his business collapsed. He came out with lots of money. We've seen over the last four years and excavation of his taxes my colleagues at the times got hold the tax returns that he's tried so hard to keep from the public and discovered a pattern of of reporting that looks like you know Evasion of taxes at the very least and perhaps even something illegal depending on how the lawyers will interpret it. And i think that you could long before today. We already knew this is a business that played it on the edge at the very least. Will we see. Today is more tangible concept you know very concrete example of that Where the rules. Don't apply the rules that apply to other businesses. That were not taken seriously at least for the last fifteen years in this one instance By the person who went on to become our president now whether the consequences will be Commensurate to that or what will lead to down the road for the president himself or other people connected with his business. Those the real questions at the moment. And i think that You know the story of course is Is not quite ended. We are indebted to these three terrific guests on a thursday night.

Tribal Energy: Powering Self-Determination

"For many life on an Indian reservation in is defined by hardship and struggle when treaties and laws like the Indian Removal Act signed by President Andrew Jackson in eighteen thirty four native Americans onto reservations nations. The lands they were told to resettle on often small and remote uprooted from their traditional ways of life. Native communities had to adapt their new environment without access to the services says white settlers enjoyed even today things like medical care employment and reliable. Electricity are difficult to come by many tribes like the piggeries Pueblo of New Mexico. I am governor Craig. Konczal from victories. Pablo we're located in northern New Mexico. Where about twenty seven miles south of Taus Pueblo saw so a lot of the people in pictures are fixed incomes or low incomes our job ray at the very low where isolated area where about forty five minutes? It's from any kind of a grocery store workplace jobs currently at the PUBL. Now if the lights go out or the power goes out we have no means of calling the ambulance who have no means of calling fire so these are some of the things that working in. How can we get off the grid for emergencies? Say off the grid for long term short term just keeping the lights on is a significant challenge for some tribal communities when that's made increasingly difficult by the threat threat of natural disasters in the Pacific northwest. The Spokane tribe is wrestling with the effects of climate change on its energy security. I'm Timothy Horon. I'm the Executive Director Director. The Spokane Indian Housing Authority with the Spokane tribe in North Eastern Washington Spokane tribe head Fires back to back in Twenty Fifteen fifteen in two thousand sixteen. The twentieth. Sixteen fires called the coyotes mountain fire and destroyed eighteen thousand acres and took out fourteen homes. uh-huh no one was injured. No lives were lost which was fortunate but it did come. Within a mile of the Housing Authority office and the tribal administrative the straight of center and the power line the distribution lines coming into the reservation were burnt in the fire so the tribe had no power and the power was necessary because there wasn't a backup generating system on the pump for the water. It had no independent source of water to fight the fire. I think it was a wakeup up. Call for the tribe. It certainly was for Mitt Thousand Authority because it almost took out all of our senior housing as well that it unless we were better prepared unless we had some independent systems for generating power that we were going to be at the mercy of the elements and due to climate change and the fact that our our forests are dryer. They are more susceptible to fire. We'd had a pattern of fire more than the Department of Natural Resources on the reservation said that it could remember remember. I think a century so each tribe has its own unique priorities but it can be even more complicated than that. Even within a single tribe members may be spread out across across a wide geographic area with different issues depending on where they live. My Name is Sarah sure. I am the environmental and Energy Attorney for the Forrest County. Automate community a tribe with its reservation in northern Wisconsin. And then several other pieces of trust property in both Milwaukee and Campbell sport. The tribe has a number of different challenges. One of the tribes overall goals is to be one hundred percent energy independent pendant by generating its own electricity by having its own source of energy through only renewable sources energy independence for the tribe is important for a number of reasons if we're talking about climate change for example in times of natural disaster. The traditional grid red may not be able to support all sectors of the population in areas. That are more rurally based. That's an even greater challenge because the infrastructure itself is not as developed as in more metropolitan areas so coming up with a concept that works for both the reservation in northern Wisconsin and then also the properties in Milwaukee where the tribes economic economic base is that can be challenging so having the ability to have a sovereign energy portfolio and and to be energy independent by producing your own energy gives you the opportunity to avoid and mitigate some of those natural disasters astaire's for some tribes that work with the office of Indian energy like the eastern band of Cherokee Indians. Energy Development has a direct link to their economic prosperity. I'm Joey Al I'm I'm from Cherokee North Carolina and I'm part of the eastern band of Cherokee Indians. I'm the secretary of Agriculture Natural Resources. For the tribe the energy challenges that we face are around our largest industries school school the hospital the Casino and our travel services and administrative buildings. This particular project is on secondary casino because it served by smaller utility company and West North Carolina. It's called Murphy. Electric Power Board and through this project. I learned that they are actually about sixty five. Seventy percent of the low capacity they can serve that that community and with gaming is twenty four seven three sixty five. We can't miss a second of any kind of powerless for the gaming industry. What motivates the tribe in? My view is that with the growing population. You know. The demand for electricity across residential services is going to increase we're expanding in our economy not our primary Harris Cherokee in Cherokee chair he were broken. Ground on a new things about four hundred or five hundred room hotel one hundred Thousand Square Foot Convention Center. They're also looking at expanding into an outdoor shopping area area and so the Casino represents the largest service low for the tribe and so as we're moving forward again we need to look at how can we reduce our carbon footprint and and also looking to supply our own. Some are demand so far we've heard from tribes in the contiguous United States but there are hundreds more native communities in Alaska. Many of these are located located far from any kind of infrastructure and more often than not depend on fuel flown or barged into the community for survival. My name is franny his I. I am from four Q Kahn. A village of ATHABASCA descent and we like to refer to ourselves as with Chin people bull from Grachev and four few Khan and our kitchen language means people of the flats. We're very remote village on the map of Alaska were up in the northern eastern part of the state along the Yukon River. We're actually a hub village. But we don't have any roads that you can drive out for Yukon to. We can travel on that river by vote in the summertime and bring supplies in other than that where isolated where to bring anything fresh in when we have to fly in this very expensive easiest way to set up electricity in a remote site like where we are is to bring being in a diesel operated generator. They're easy to transport they're kinda tough and they drink a lot of fuel to operate and then that brings the problem that the price is high and not only does the price get to be expensive. But we couldn't depend for to be on all the time and we didn't really have good reliable electric resources. We have to keep our water moving moving because we have extreme weather to where can get fifty below for a month. It could then warm up to maybe twenty below still still so-called at that water cannot stand still pass to always be circulating and it takes the hookup to the power plant. Keep that going wing and when our power plant was going down I thought. What can we do here what they did and what everyone we spoke to for this episode has done is reach out to the office of Indian Energy Lasana and her colleagues work with tribes native communities to identify their biggest energy needs and the best ways to address them whether that's through technical expertise education and outreach or financial support

"Far, maybe not he hasn't been. Exactly, right. But man, do they look good. And when you can score runs in punches like they have scored so far. I mean, they were fifty runs before you blinked an eye in eight homers on opening day. Maybe that's a sign that. This is a really really good team. I've said all along I think there are lot of really closely match teams in the National League. Maybe the dodgers are saying none or no we're the best team in the league. And there's no doubt about it. So I did a lot of research for this broadcast preparing for it on Nolan are not who I know is one of your favorite guys to watch because he's so intense, and he's one of those guys who everyone seems to have a story about him. And I hope everyone get a chance to see Alex Rodriguez interview with him where you head Nolan throw from his knees behind third base in foul territory on that side from his knee three straight throws perfect to first base, which just showed off ridiculous arm strength, and you can hear Nolan's passion for the execution of plays in Alex's interview. So I would urge everyone to find that. But Tim I talked to Mike in solace who was his high school coach out Nolan last week. And he told me this phenomenal story about how two thousand sixteen all star game happens and Nolan is representing the Iraqis for the National League, and he has a really bad at bat against della. Matanzas he strikes out on three pitches. And Mike konczal is like a lot of fans. Is watching the game in ten o'clock at night the phone rings, and it's Nolan and he says, you know, what coach not feeling very good. I'm wondering can we go down to the cages tomorrow and hit? My dad will be there. We'll do some of the things we do in the past because I wanna make sure I feel better going into the second half. So the next day Nolan are not just made the all star team is taking extra batting practice because he wasn't comfortable about an Advani had in the all star game. That's insane. That's insane. But he's insane. And for all the right reasons, I'll never forget bus to the last day of the eighty seven season..

CBS News poll reveals what viewers want to hear at State of the Union

"I want to talk about the state of the union. But apparently that that's too much for somebody of your delegates years so tonight. Yes, the state of the union trivia question is this the president's third or second state of the union must be a third trick question. The first one was given when he was giving a joint speech to the joint session of congress. In other words, when you're in office for nine days, they don't you do a state of the union yet because you're just kind of find in the bathroom. So this is the second which is hard around here. On the way here. It's amaz- W O R in this. I heart media. No question about it. But I mean, obviously, these things they get a lot of hype. All right there. They're carried by something like thirteen or fourteen stations networks, right? Probably will get anywhere between. I think forty five million watched last year probably a trickle down a little bit. I don't think by much though, it usually does year after year after the first one, but still forty million people much less. Probably everything's much less suitable had ninety eight million viewers. Oh, that's horrible. And then you realize it's nine. Absolutely. And and the number one thing, I think is a that people will be watching lease is will Democrats behave themselves, and by that, you know, obviously, they don't like this president very much polls show that they that that their constituents want President Trump impeached. Not after the mullahs report. Right. Not after anything like that. They want him impeach now by seventy eight percent margin. This according to Gallup, all right. So by booing him or by not exactly showing any sort of respect. I think they think that will play well with their base. But I think what we got to start doing. Maybe you'll agree with me it stopped thinking to the base so much right and start thinking of in other words, forty percent of people in this country will will vote for Donald Trump. No matter what forty will vote against him. No better much that twenty in the middle. You've got to be thinking. Talk. Baby that forty percent could be away by whatever's in that Muller report, if the mullahs report is so bad. Stinky cheese that it could chip away at that forty percent. But I agree that that that forty percent Israel is there it would be have to be absolute collusion between literally a phone call between Trump and Putin saying, hey, give me the WikiLeaks WikiLeaks, and I don't think we're going to see that can you fix ethic. Yeah. We would have already had that everything weeks. And we would have heard something by now. So I think it'll be something. That's. We'll have some guilty pleas from Manafort, obviously, but they do Flynn, right? And it'll be stuff that sketchy, but nothing to do with collusion. And I think it'll be we we move on. Apparently that that reports coming out less than a month, according to we'll talk some more about X. I have some thoughts on that as well. But anyway, so let's let's say so we start with that. Where you've got you've got the hardcore base, and then you've looked at. And then you've got the dams on the other side, but they're there. This is feeling so much anger between both sides listening now to you know, this state of the union, it's gonna be Maxine Waters, for example. She's telling people, you know, turn off your TV's watch. Yeah. Boycott, and I'm thinking, wow. You know, we want to be educated. Right. We want to know what our president is saying to us whether we agree or disagree because I might really disagree with a lot of points that our president is going to make to us tonight. But I want to be educated about what he says. So then I can go out, and I can say, you know, have a conversation with you konczal. I could say, you know, I disagree with you or Trump on this point and go Mark down with you. And have a have an intellectual discussion with you about them. If if I tune something out, how am I ever going to have that? Discussion with you. How am I ever going to discuss the facts if I just tune you out, it's childish, right? And and child is like anything else in life. You just tuned that person out Chuck Schumer already spoke, basically, saying, we're not we shouldn't listen to this president there because what they're what the White House is trying to say, look, we're going to try to strike a tone of bipartisanship that that you know, that we look we had this government shutdown. The both sides were heard, and now, let's let's work at healing and find places we can work together like infrastructure, for instance. Right. Which always seems like a pretty easy place to talk. That's really a democratic idea. That's government spending. That's been a Trump thing in his support. And and and and you know, and I agree with this, by the way, that's the unifying message just things are crumbling, and we're going to invest somewhere. Let's hear. Just look around the indeed and Schumer's already rejecting it saying, we shouldn't listen to this president just just like Maxine Waters, and then you have Kamala Harris, the Senator who's running for president at a California. She's doing what's called a pre Buttle. Right. And that sounds like a bad movie skinny max at three o'clock in the morning, but she's doing the pre Buttle, and that's at seven forty five before the state of the union before she knows what the president's going to say. And then of course, you have Stacey Abrams doing the pulse rebuttal, which which is fine. But it just seems like everybody's going into this just like they have with everything else over the last two years in their safe spaces tribalism rules, and we're not gonna listener budget anyway because we're already in a presidential election season. We are. But I don't like I don't like the idea boycotting. I don't like doing that. But let's talk about what he's where's he going to go? He's going to go. The big the wall is the big thing. Do you think do you think he's gonna drop this whole big thing about nationally emergency I- Bloomberg? Is reporting that he will not well, he'll probably broach it he's not going to declare it. Right. Yeah. Can't do it before the negotiations are over. But that that will not be said tonight. You got some in the presence party, like Mitch McConnell, for instance, are saying, you know, that this probably is not a good idea. Exactly. So I mean, we talked to know are often last night from MSNBC a political commentator conservative. And he says just take everything that the that the Democrats are offering right now, and that that would be the better way to go. Yeah. Yeah. Actually said that that Trump would come out ahead. If he did that right? Embrace him more, the smart technology, even President Trump said today hedge a little bit. You said, you know, what we'll build a human wall. In other words, maybe troops to the border. So look as long as it works as long as you can deter people coming into this country illegally. My position is I know it's a semantic thing with the wall and the symbolism of it. But as long as it's works. Yeah. But the problem is though, he President Trump still has to be able to go and say to his the people that voted for him. Look, I I gave you what I promised you. I built you the wall. And as a little aside, I was reminding you this yesterday. Hey. We're going to have Mexico pay for it. We have to Mexico pay for it. Remember, it's not supposed to be us paying for member. I mean, I'm going to keep coming back on that. Because I don't forget that his e promised that the president has said because of the better deal that was struck with with Mexico and Canada, the new NAFTA deal that therefore the money from that helps supply it's not the money. All right. We have a four trillion dollar budget. It's five billion gazillion and have lots of deficits to sell please. But the five billion in all that much. Wouldn't you guys? It's not the money. It's not it's like a lot of billion out of four trillion. In a contextual matter is not all that much as one tenth of one percent less than one percent. Anyway. What some people will be watching tonight. They'll people like the political theory as well lis. Right. Maybe they're not there to listen to the policy or the speech or the see the reaction of Democrats. But you know, there are bet you can place now because you can place bets everywhere. Yeah. You could actually wager on what's going to happen at the state of the union, for instance, what do you think the president will mention I in his remarks is according to bet DS IRA, it's called prop pets. Okay. Yes. Well, he mentioned I all right. The vice president the Senate majority leader members of congress, my fellow Americans first lady or speaker of the house those words have to come out of his word now. Yeah. Well, if he mentioned his his my fellow Americans, he should convention. I I would think so. Right. If you wanna strike bipartisanship. Okay. That one hundred dollars on that you'd win three hundred. So. Lampley, you gotta get like, you gotta go to jersey apparently jersey, you can't bet New York. You have to literally take the path over hold your phone in the air show. You're in New Jersey by your locator. And then you could put that in from there. Sounds hard. Yeah. It's it's not convenient for New Yorkers. But there's another story for another time. All right. Another question. Another bet you push. President trump. Yeah. The interrupted by something other than applause. Other than applaud that a plot. Can that be what? Yeah. Exactly. Applause screaming hawk. No, I'm thinking. Flying paper paper like little like throw the paper. Make a sound though. I think they're talking about booze. Oh, I would I would think like rolled up paper like, you know, when you in in your grade school, and you had the little paper wads them, you know. Yes. That gets you four fifty back in two hundred dollar bet. No, however, saying he won't be interrupted by anything other than applause is at minus eight hundred. No. I think he'll be booed. It happened. It happened with President Obama with Joe Wilson. Call calling him a liar. Yes. That's right. Remember that that kind of behavior while the partisans would love it, right? Like, you showed them so poorly. And it's time when mcchord was just talking about this. You know interview that he did yesterday. I think it was with CBS early show. It's it's just like you don't it's time about civility. We've really I mean. I know it sounds cliche. Did I know it sounds so close? So sounds phony coming from him considering the way he treated Br Cavanaugh during those hearings civility, really all right? Okay. So I'm just taking the latest example, but come on we really are trying to be more civil now. So the the party. I mean, even if you guys don't believe it. Okay. Be it. I mean fake it till you make it right? Was was my saying got me through college. How many standing ovations or something? President Trump received the over under sixty nine and a half meaning received more than sixty nine and a half or less than sixty nine and a half standing ovation. It's exactly even. So what what the heck does. That mean? It's it's can't decide it's one number. It goes over that number or under sixteen. That's what he'll get. No. Yeah. You understand that? That's the bar sixty nine gymnastics. All right there. He gets more than sixty nine and a half or less than sixty nine and a half. What do you got half? The it's impossible because there isn't a half of was registering is. You never played high low with cards. No, no, that's not registered. You think? He'll get seventy. Oh. I

"The statement, I believe so and I have to say I said this on the air today that seems surprising to me the notion that all these people at the Trump were. Innovation would be emailing and texting and discussing a directive by Donald Trump to Michael Cohen to lie to congress doesn't seem like the kind of thing you would put in writing. And I think what we're we're left. Now, Chris the idea of wondering whether there is corroborating in any form for Michael Cohen's story that Donald Trump directed into lie. It's a completely plausible story. You know, what he's saying that he was directed to make illegal campaign finance payments by Donald Trump. But the question is is corroborated because the house is not gonna impeach Trump on the word of a convicted felon, and MS that that is definitely I think true. I don't think you made mention this. But this significance here of the time. I mean, here's what strange to me about what happened. Buzzfeed writes, this story, this is very high stick story. So this thing gets lawyer and it gets edited. And they go back there sources and I- reporters have good tracker on the story and the editor team they're opposed feed is quite good. I think they go to the special counsel's office and say what what should we do? Right. Here's the cures your space for comment. They get a no comment the story publishes. And then twenty two hours later, we got the statement. That's a strange, right? That's weird fact pattern. It's very frustrating. Chris I have to say the behavior of the special counsel's office. You know, they pride themselves on not saying anything. But it's to the point where the. Public is not well-served because they are not helping people get it. Right. And they're not pointing out when people get it wrong. All they will tell you on background is fifty percent of the things that are written about our investigation or wildly wrong. Well, how does that help anybody? Right. I understand their issue. They can't talk about appending govern investigation. But another context the government finds a way to help reporters get it, right? And Robert Muller's offices not doing that. And this is the result. Yeah. All right. Kendall alien thank you so much for making time here at the top as a rolling with this crazy news day for more on the consequences of buzz reporting. I'm joined by Neil konczal, former acting solicitor general the Obama administration who wrote the regulations covering the special counsel and just wrote a brand new op-ed with General Michael Hayden calling for impeachment proceedings to begin. So there's a bunch of things I want to get to with you Neil. I as someone who wrote the special counsel regulations, and I wanna refer you back to what Chris Murphy said today, there is an increasing sense. I think of urge. Urgency and democratic tension building about the nature of of an inquiry that is being conducted in secret for in the midst of what is fundamentally a public matter of the cooks import that all of us need to know about..

"As we said, as you know doubt heard the man in charge of the Muller investigation preparing to resign. Rod Rosenstein, a Harvard educated. Career Justice department lawyer expected to step down on his own terms. But apparently will not leave Robert Muller high and dry. This is according to NBC news reporting today, quote, a source close to Rosenstein said he intends to stay on until mothers investigative and prosecutorial work is done the source set. Once Muller's work is done special counsels reports that the Justice department would follow a few weeks later and Rosenstein would likely be gone by then the timing of all of this unclear and there's reporting all over the map regarding how far along that man might be in his investigation. If confirmed and his hearing start next week, the incoming AIG William bar would oversee the Russia investigation. Even though he wrote in a now famous and unsolicited memo that the Muller investigation was ill, conceived and. Muller should not be permitted to demand that the president submit to interrogation about alleged obstruction? Well with us to talk about all of it tonight. The attorney Neil konczal, he served as the government's top lawyer before the supreme court acting solicitor general during the Obama administration in that capacity. Argued thirty-seven cases before the supreme court, perhaps most notably veteran the DOJ where he drafted the special counsel regulations under which Mr. Mueller was appointed counselor. Thank you very much for coming back on our broadcast as always what do you make of the Rosenstein departure? Do you think too much has been made of it? Do you think anyone's really going to harm a hair on Muller's head? I think it's pretty significant and worrisome. So Rosenstein is the kind of key man under the special counsel regulations because special counsel regulation say that the attorney general or if the attorney general is recused the acting attorney general supervises the investigation, and by all accounts, Rosenstein is let Muller do his job unimpeded taking the investigation where leads and so on, but the attorney general of the acting attorney general has a vast suite of powers under the special counsel regulations. He can for example, stop any investigation. Stop any subpoena or calling of someone he could say you can't indict a certain person whether it be Don, jR, Jared or even the president and most notably he could try and block the final report about the investigation from the public and from congress. And so those are all tools that the attorney general does have their subject to some limitations. But as we think about Rosenstein departing, and we think about being replaced by currently this acting attorney general fake attorney general Whittaker in now bar both of whom have campaigned or audition for the job of attorney general by writing opinions or giving speeches or giving media interviews in which they say Muller is a problem. I mean, this is I think very very unseemly to have someone like that supervising this investigation. Does that mean we're going to have a sessions light conversation all over again? If bar is confirmed if he's already prejudged the investigation should he recuse himself from anything to do with the Russia investigation? I do think that that's going to be a very serious question, and notably Whitaker the the current acting. Attorney general went and sought advice from the ethics office at the Justice department. Those are people I worked with all the time. They're career people are totally respectable and very diligent and what they do. And they said to Whitaker evidently, don't do this. And he went to head and did it anyway. And so I don't have any confidence in the Trump administration's new person to do anything different because their modus operandi has been to basically blow off the ethics and do whatever it takes to protect the height of Donald Trump and bars. Memo's a really good example of that that is a memo that that I actually think many my first year law students would have done a better job bar is a very smart, man. But that is a willful deliberate document designed to give the president to get out of jail free card. I have to get you on the record on this Manafort news. This was the story yesterday. I heard you on a lesser network tonight made me laugh out loud when you..

"Support comes from KCET presenting city rising, the informal economy a new documentary series examining how California workers who labor off the books are fighting for workers rights now streaming at KCET dot org. Back again with left right and center. I'm Josh barrow of New York magazine on the right is Ryan Salaam, executive editor of national review on the left is Ana Marie Cox, hosted the crooked media podcast with friends like these and columnist for scifis fan girls and John Bresnahan capital bureau chief for politico is also with us with the democratic wave Nancy Pelosi has become the first person to return to the speakership after losing the majority since Sam Rayburn in nineteen fifty five and Rayburn has a building named after him in the capitol complex on what do you make of the reruns of Nancy Pelosi? She's had a lot of detractors. There were a lot of people within the party who were trying to depose her speaker. And yet she wins with almost unanimous support alternately within the democratic conference. I am to the left of Pelosi probably on many political issues. But I I have to say that I admire her so much for this re entry into the spotlight the way that she's handled herself the way that she's wheeled and dealed. I think she's a consummate politician. It's so interesting to see her. Her face off with Trump because her her quickness and her ability to make deals is like so in sharp contrast with the guy who supposedly is the master dealmaker. Right. And she's just got some great turn of phrase lately. I also think that she probably is dealing with the new progressive caucus more adroitly than anyone else in that fairly geriatric leadership would. And I look forward to that that caucus rising up after she makes her way into the sunset. John. Can you describe for us the the agreements that Pelosi reached with various flags of her caucus there were major concessions she ended up making both to the progressive caucus. And then also the people on the more moderate flank of the democratic conference in order to consolidate all the support. Yes, she definitely make concessions. I'm not sure how major some of them were. I mean, she made the biggest one was of course, a term limits concession that. She could serve at a maximum is four years speaker. But. But she's already seventy eight years old. I'm not sure how big a concession. That was. I mean, I think the the thing was Posey would have said anything to get back in the speaker share with progressives. She committed to having more representation from the progressive caucus on they major committees. And making sure that the voice of progresses was hurt in the committees. And again, I think that by virtue of who got elected that would have happened anyway. And it's really interesting to hear to me that people are to win in rear talks about being left up Pelosi. And there's a lot of there's a lot of new members who are going to be the left upload which fascinating. Because I mean, the Republicans of attack closely for years decades now is being, you know, San Francisco Nancy, you know, in her, you know, you don't want the rest of the country to have. And now Pelosi is not hard line, you know, progressive as compared to some of her members. So which is funny to see the party that she made some of the member she bought off very easily. She. She said, you know, she said the committee assignment, or she'll, you know, they'll get a chance to push whatever legislation they want. I mean, so I mean, I think if you watched it it was a masterful display of how you manipulate other members. And in my twenty five years covering the hill every day Nancy Pelosi is by far the best vote counter. I've ever seen. Ryan is plus is still useful as a boogie woman for Republicans. I doubt it. I'm skeptical about that. Because basically, these are the salad days for Democrats. This is the perfect time. They will not be held accountable for anything. They could have little debates here there that can be cute that can generate you know, fundraising dollars for this or that progressive group. But really what they have to do is just play prevent defense. They just have to ensure that the president can accomplish anything legislatively, and if they do that, they'll do just fine. And also a lot of attention is going to be drawn by the democratic contenders and twenty twenty because of course, the democratic primary season is already begun. And so they just have to kind of plot along and anti Pelosi is just going to follow away from the spotlight. So on it to that point about playing defense. A lot of the fights over these rules involved, you know, sort of blue-sky ideas that are, you know, Donald Trump is not going to sign, but it it sets it sets a table for. How Democrats might legislative they control the entire government in two years. And there was some discontent from the left about some of the things in the rules package. They brought back these roles called paleo that basically mean if you're going to expand and entitlement program, you need to to finance that with new revenues. There was some discontent about how powerful this green new deal committee is going to be it's not going to be able to directly proposed legislation and we saw Alexandria Casio Cortez was one of just three members the democratic conference who voted against the rules package because they didn't think it was progressive enough. Do they have valid concerns there. The vast majority of the progressive caucus decided that they were fine with this roles package, and they signed off on it. I mean, I think that people like AFC wanted what they wanted for good reasons. And I I agree with those positions. But also, I think this is a victory for them to get these discussions on the table. I read an interview with her actually where she basically said that the conversation has now widened the green new deal is something that no one had heard of or practically no one had heard of like a few months ago. And now, it's something that people. Further to the left and people kind of in the center are talking about, you know, she's widened and the Overton window on the left win. It's been actually it's been creeping so far right for so long. I think that the pay go rule is an interesting compromise. My recollection in John correct me if I'm wrong they passed that. But also said, but we can violate this. When we want to like it. Exactly. So I think that's actually pretty masterful deal making on the part of progressives. If they said, okay, we're gonna vote for this thing that sounds really good, but we cannot comply with it for the things you really really want. So what does what they did in the past? Anyway, they waved it anyway. So, you know, John Bresnahan capital bureau chief for politico. Thank you for joining us. Thanks for having me. It is January twenty nineteen. And that means we're about a month into the twenty twenty presidential election campaign. Former housing and urban development secretary who Leon Castro who also served as mayor of San Antonio is expected to announce a presidential run imminently, but more notably Senator Elizabeth Warren is from the committee to explore a presidential run. We're joined now by Mike konczal, Mike is fellow at the Roosevelt institute where he focuses on financial reform and progressive economic policy. Mike, thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me. So Mike on this show a couple of weeks ago, we were talking about these proxy fights over Beto Aurora, which seemed to be an opportunity to relitigate the fight between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton and over, you know, the level of progressivism that should be in the democratic presidential candidates. Agenda where does Elizabeth Warren sits in the fight over the future of Democratic Party. You know, it's interesting so coming out of two thousand sixteen the the Democrats had three major problems to overcome. They had to re establish their base with people of color and younger people. They have to consolidate a lot of gains. They made with suburban moderate voters, and they needed to re secure and take back the upper midwest from President Trump, and the largely did this in two thousand eighteen very well now looking at twenty twenty it's still a challenge. But it's now going to be a harder one because it needs to be done within one person leading the party is the nominee and here, I think you'll see worn emphasized her history of fighting for working class people kitchen table issues, like health care and credit card bills and also a dealing with corruption. So I think it allows her to talk a much more aggressively about what's broken with Wall Street. What's broken with people's everyday experiences, but not necessarily in the most aggressive tones to turn on? A lot of more moderate people, but ways that might connect with a lot of the base. So I think we'll see as as she emphasizes a lot of her midwest roots and a lot of this history that she has fighting for kitchen table issues. What that will look like on? I feel like of all the democratic presidential candidates with the possible exception of Bernie Sanders, and probably not even that exception. Warren has the most clearly defined ideology, she's really associated with a particular view of what government is four and therefore is not sort of molding her ideology to bring out into this campaign based on where the electorate is. I guess my question is to what extent are these primaries really about ideology is there are these candidates going to voters and presenting a policy plan and saying here, this is what I think government is four vote for me is that how this works. Yeah. Historically. I don't think that's the case. I also think what's interesting about Warren is that you described her as having a solid ideological background, which he has a resume what she has a series of positions that she has acted on in her career like that she has worked on in academia that she's worked on in government. And I think that's the strongest argument for her candidacy is that. She doesn't just talk a good game. Right. She's actually been able to make real serious changes in American policy. I it is so early. I mean, at this point, I think is just as good a chance that we're going to you know, determine our candidate by a sing off than it is by ideology, there's we're gonna do a series of Instagram cook offs. Maybe is crazy new world out there all the rules are up in the air. I am hopeful that the discussion is about ideology, but you know, it's going to also be about race and also be about gender. I don't see how the metoo movement can't play a significant role in in what will be happening, especially if Biden enters the race, so ideology and personal background. Those are always maybe the top three things that people think about and there's going to be a whole cast of characters to jet to judge by those things Ryan you actually were praising at least a portion of Elizabeth Warren agenda in your column this week saying that she had some good ideas about how the military spends money inefficiently. Even though I believe you were critical of her overall vision of how the military. We should work. I it seems inferior like she ought to be one of the best position candidates to attack Trump on a number of issues on personal corruption on closeness to industries on letting industries take advantage of the government, including defense contractors. It seems like, you know, she in many ways would be very well matched up to Trump's weaknesses. I think that symbolism and cultural stereotypes wind up counting for a lot. So I've got to say I'm a bit bearish about her chances in the primary, but I also think that it doesn't really matter all that much insofar as Warren really is an intellectual leader and the bigger picture that's happened. Among the Democrats since their defeat in two thousand sixteen is that the Sanders lights and the Clinton nights.

"Just have to kind of plot along and Nancy Pelosi is just going to follow away from the spotlight. So on a to to that point about playing defense. A lot of the fights over these rules involved, you know, sort of blue-sky ideas that are, you know, Donald Trump is not going to sign, but it sets it sets a table for how Democrats might legislative they control the entire government in two years. And there was some discontent from the left about some of the things in in the rules package. They brought back these roles called go that basically mean if you're going to expand and entitlement program you need to. To finance that with new revenues. There was some discontent about how powerful this green new deal committee is going to be it's not going to be able to directly proposed legislation and we saw Alexandria Casio Cortez was one of just three members the democratic conference who voted against the rules package because they didn't think it was progressive enough. Do they have valid concerns there. The vast majority of the progressive caucus decided that they were fine with this packaging. They signed off on it. I mean, I think that people like AFC wanted what they wanted for good reasons. And I I agree with positions. But also, I think this is a victory for them ticket. These discussions on the table. I read an interview with her actually where she basically said that that conversation has now widened the green new deal is something that no one had heard of or practically no one had heard of like a few months ago. And now, it's something that people further to the left and people kind of in the center are talking about, you know, she's widened and the Overton window on the left when it's been actually it's been creeping so far right for so long. I think that the pay go rule is an interesting compromise. My recollection in John Kirkman from wrong they passed that. But also said, but we can violate this. When we want to like it. Exactly. So I think that's actually pretty masterful deal making on the part of progressives. If they said, okay, we're gonna vote for this thing that sounds really good, but we cannot comply with it for the things you really really want. So what does what they did in the past? Anyway, they waved it anyway. So, you know, John Bresnahan capital bureau chief for politico. Thank you for joining us. Thanks for having me. It is January twenty nineteen. And that means we're about a month into the two thousand twenty presidential election campaign. Former housing and urban development secretary who Leon Castro who also served as mayor of San Antonio is expected to announce a presidential run imminently, but more notably Senator Elizabeth Warren has formed a committee to explore a presidential run. We're joined now by Mike konczal, Mike is fellow at the Roosevelt institute where he focuses on financial reform and progressive economic policy. Mike, thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me. So Mike on this show a couple of weeks ago, we were talking about these proxy fights over Beto Rorick, which seemed to be an opportunity to relitigate the fight between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton and over, you know, the level of progressivism that should be in the democratic presidential. Candidates agenda where does Elizabeth Warren sits in the fight over the future Democratic Party. You know, it's interesting so coming out of two thousand sixteen the the Democrats had three major problems to overcome. They had to reestablish their base with people of color and younger people. They have to consolidate a lot of gains. They made with suburban moderate voters, and they needed to re secure and take back the upper midwest from President Trump, and the largely did this in two thousand eighteen very well now looking at twenty twenty it's still a challenge. But it's now going to be a harder one because it needs to be done within one person leading the party is the nominee and here, I think you'll see worn emphasized her history of fighting for working class people kitchen table issues like healthcare and credit card bills and also dealing with corruption. So I think it allows her to talk a much more aggressively about what's broken with Wall Street. What's broken with people's everyday experiences, but not necessarily in the most aggressive tones? To turn off a lot of more moderate people. But in ways that might connect with a lot of the base. So I think we'll see as as she is a lot of her midwest roots and a lot of this history that she has fighting for kitchen table issues. What that will look like on? I feel like a of all the democratic presidential candidates with the possible exception, Bernie Sanders, and probably not even that exception. Warren has the most clearly defined ideology, she's really associated with a particular view of what government is four and therefore is not sort of molding her ideology to bring out into this campaign based on where the electorate is. I guess my question is to what extent are these primaries really about ideology is there are these candidates going to voters and presenting a policy plan and saying here, this is what I think government is four vote for me is that how this works. Yeah. Historically, I don't think that's the case. I also think what's interesting about Warren is that you described her as having a solid ideological background, which she has a resume what she has as a series of positions that she has. Acted on in her career like that she's worked on in academia that she's worked on in government. And I think that's the strongest argument for her candidacy is that. She doesn't just talk a good game. Right. She's actually been able to make real serious changes in American policy. I it is so early. I mean, at this point, I think is just as good a chance that we're gonna you know, determine our candidate by a sing off than it is by ideology, there's we're going to do a series of Instagram cook offs. Maybe is crazy new world out there all the rules are up in the air. I am hopeful that the discussion is about ideology, but you know, it's going to also be about race and also be about gender. I don't see how the metoo movement can't play a significant role in in what will be happening, especially if Biden enters the race. So you know, ideology and personal background. Those are always maybe the top two things that people think about and there's going to be a whole cast of characters to jet to judge by those things Ryan you actually were praising at least a portion of Elizabeth Warren agenda in your column this week saying that she had some good ideas about how the military spends money inefficiently. Even though I believe you were critical of her overall vision of how the military. We should work. I it seems in theory like she ought to be one of the best position candidates to attack Trump on a number of issues on personal corruption on closeness to industries on letting industries take advantage of the government, including defense contractors. It seems like, you know, she in many ways would be very well matched up to Trump's weaknesses. I think that symbolism and cultural stereotypes wind up counting for a lot. So I've got to say bit bearish about her chances in the primary, but I also think that it doesn't really matter all that much in so far as Warren really is an intellectual leader and the bigger picture. That's happened. Among the Democrats since their defeat in two thousand sixteen is that the Sanders lights and the Clinton nights at the elite level are totally totally aligned policy. Exactly personal. Well, that's an open question. I get a grassroots level. That's certainly true. But I've got to say Mike konczal would've played a very senior role in a Clinton White House or in a Sanders White House that is absolutely true. If you look at the advisers working. Behind these guys behind Biden or beta or what have you the truth is that there's a lot of very tight convergence. You have a strong network of former staffers who are very aware that hey, we don't know. Which of these thirty candidates will become the next president. But the folks we're gonna actually staff that administration. They're very very aligned. Now, the difficulty is that the coalition itself the electoral coalition is going to be a lot less allied. If you see a big democratic victory in twenty twenty it's going to be because you have upper middle class folks and working class folks who do not have the same core material interests, but at the elite level this party is super United in a way that ought to be intimidating for people like myself on the right, Mike. Do you agree with that assessment has Elizabeth Warren, basically already won the policy fight within the party? Even if she doesn't win the nomination. Yeah. I think so both both her and Bernie Sanders, I think it kind of closed up the space in the following twenty sixteen you now see it see particularly with healthcare where even the most moderate members are proposing a pretty expansive Medicare expansion rather than. To go back into the exchanges and bring back the individual mandate and try to increase subsidies. You know, you see it with a broad focus on things like antitrust in corporate governance, the fight for a fifteen dollars minimum wage right now is the standard policy. It's just a matter of what year you implemented where before President Obama introduced a ten dollars and ten cents minimum wage that was seen as very progressive back in twenty twelve. So there's definitely been a movement left on the economic space. I think both because of Trump's victory. I think both because of the sense that the economy is not working in a lot of core key ways, the general sense of unease, and you see it both on immigration and on globalization and on corporate profits a monopoly in platforms. So I do. Yeah. It's definitely the case that that has gone now. The question is how far and how aggressive people will push it. And I think what will matter for twenty twenty s how much it is centered in the kind of rhetoric pitch to voters on whether or not we just need some tweaking around the edges, which you'll probably hear from more centrist candidates or whether or not we need more structural reforms. And I think you'll see it particularly. Play out in the in President Trump because some people will say President Trump is going to be unique to our government. Some people will see him much more of a general symptom of the corruption that happens within government, and he'll in a weird way kind of a proxy for how that works out. I I wanna push back, and I want to hear from both on and Mike about this on the messaging about how the the economy is not working for ordinary people isn't this difficult time to be making that pitch. I mean, the the economy's certainly could be better. But I mean, the, for example, just on Friday, we got a jobs report that that far beat expectations wage growth finally kicking up over three percent isn't isn't it difficult to run on a, you know, rather than you know, Trump is corrupt. Trump is misusing our resources to run specifically on a, you know, the the economy's not working for you message at a time when the economy really feels feels good to a lot of ordinary people on I think it may feel good right now. But I think that what worries a lot of the democratic base is this. Ability of the economy and stability of the government. And I think we talked about this after the midterms, which is that the Democrats are not going to win the White House by talking about impeaching Trump as much as I personally think that would be a great idea, and they're not gonna win it talking about his charity. They're not gonna win at time him personally, they are going to have to talk about policy, but there is a certain amount of policy ties into Trump being so unstable Trump being so mercurial, I think that they can deliver a message that like we're here to take care of you like you're not gonna suffer from the winds of someone who thinks that, you know, who who answer to a stock slightest a call for the firing of the, you know, chairman at the fed like.

"Global Mizzou konczal in the box media podcast network. I've been thinking a lot lately about story and about which stories we tell and what we learned from them. I think I mentioned in a Altro couple of weeks ago that I listened to the Hannah Gadsby showed a net, which I found really remarkable. But that that line should keep saying the learn from the part of the story, you focus on a lot of American politics, and even culture right now seems to me to be a fight over the part of the story we focus on the part of the story. We tell is a story of progress. Is it a story of struggle? Is it a story of fairness of unfairness of of enough having been done or not enough having been done, and it's important not just politically? But it's important because it's what we learned from it's important because the part is story we tell ourselves helps us understand what's going on now. And what needs to go on now during all this? I've been reading Jill Lepore. His book these truths and this book is such a stunning achievement. It is a one volume history of the United States of America. And we've had those in the past. But we haven't had one for a while Lepore is a historian at Harvard University. She is a writer for the New Yorker, she's a beautiful writer, an amazing synthesizer. I mean, the what she puts in. And also just remarkably what she leaves out. I've been kind of stunned reading the book. And so when I got to talk, I really wanna talk about why she chose the stories and the theme she did like what part of the history she's learned from and what part of the history she wants a storm from. And this conversation is such a pleasure. She's such a like, just clearly brilliant person to talk to the that. I learned a lot and just and I think all of you will to so as always my Email as client show at vox dot com, again as recline show at vox dot com. But here's Jill Lepore, Jill poor, welcome to the podcast. Hey, thanks so much for having me. So I wanted to start with like the context of this book. It it feels to me like historians in general, and this book in particular are trying to focus on and learn from a different part of the American story is that right? I'm not sure what you mean by historians in general. I mean, there was a revolution in American struggle scholarship that started really in the nineteen sixties.

Tour de France 2018 - which is the better team overall?

"This is from Cassandra in New Zealand wants to know if you guys think Thomas would have won on another team without that great skies support. No. No, yeah. On a lot of levels. I mean, not. In the lead up to the tour, everything the Bobby touched on about team sky and the resources that they have available. So his his preparation would have prohibited him from winning. And obviously then in the race, having the strength to that team, there's no way. My group that good job chores, better given what we saw in the classics this year and what we have now seen in the tour which is a better team overall this year sky or quickstep that's from Paul. Overall, you gotta hand it to quickstep. I mean, they've dominated the classics of what was a four toward France stage wins. So it gives a jersey polka-dot jersey give the overall too quick stop. Who's the best climber in the tour because it's not Julian alpha leak. No, but he's gonna win this. This is why I don't like this jersey. I mean, I love this kid. He's dynamic. He's entertaining can walk on his hands. He can do willies but he's not the best climber in the tour de France. Let's Garin was the best climber this year. I mean, he never. He never faded when when he got attacked, he was the first guy to respond. Just look at the way he finished off out do as he. He was the guy with the most power left on the hardest mountain stages. I wonder if we could have seen Bernal uncorked still Brunell would not be able to finish finish off those climbs. Like garett would. Yeah, too young. This is the list from Denise in the Netherlands. I have one question after listening to the podcast freakonomics and the podcast of the move, is there any way that Lance and that other good looking guy could use their context and cycling to get something started to organize the cyclist in some sort of union, powerful enough to have a say in their sport. Unfortunately, Lance would not be allowed to do that, which is very unjust in my opinion. Right? Because you would have a powerful voice and and and would would be able to help change a lot of things for the good, but hang, why would I not be allowed to form a union? I don't know. Actually, maybe maybe, of course I could then get, let's do it. Yeah. I mean, I I don't. I mean, look would Travis tiger and you saw they make the rules up as they go along. So I maybe not. But based on my understanding, I would think I would. However, the problem is a union means unity and to get two hundred guys. The hurdle will always be to get two hundred guys to to unionize to all agree through cultural differences, language differences, economic differences. How do you get them to all agree? And if you have defectors essentially they won't work. And so I, it's just really, I'm adamant that. It absolutely should happen, but I'm also pessimistic that it could happen. I think you have people look. This is an example right tour of Italy, two thousand nine comeback year. Go do that Janki race, and there's a circuit in Milan. Surgeries, it's super dangerous Tramtrack everywhere, like brick every sketchy. So these guys needle DeLuca Zain the jersey and konczal ours in the race bosseaux in the race. All these, you know, quote, unquote legends or in the race and coming up to me and they say, hey, Lance, we can't. We can't raise today. This is too dangerous. You gotta go tell the commerce. That's okay. I'll do that. So I go back to the commerce boys. We're not racing this dangerous, and then they have this idea that they're gonna stop at the finish line and the needle DeLuca is gonna grab the mic and say to the fans, we're really sorry. We can't raise today students, and I said, I said, okay, well, let's all stop. That's fine. I said I said the five and said, but your ass. That'd be right beside me. Right. So when we stop at the at the finish line DeLuca is gonna grab the mic..
