They had were told the craziest stories. You'd ever wanna hear trying to get their application in some of them. We ended up faxing in in in in to get an in Somehow to handwrite it.

Democrats control Senate after three new senators are sworn in

"Hours hours after after President President Joe Joe Biden Biden and and Vice Vice President President Kamila Kamila Harris Harris were were sworn sworn in in the the Senate Senate got got back back to work. Today, Control shifted from Republicans, two Democrats by the slimmest possible margin. First Vice President Harris swore in the new Democratic senators from Georgia who will give her party the numerical edge. And that you will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which you are about to enter. So help you God. Yeah. Congratulations to tell us more. We're joined now by NPR Congressional reporter Claudia Gristle aside there. Hi, Ari. Tell us more about what happened today. So the Senate finalized their transfer of power from a Republican led chambers has been the case since 2015 to 1 that is divided 50 50 and led by one Democrat as the tiebreaker. And that's Vice President Kamala Harris. Democrats 12 weeks ago. But finally today, these two new senators from Georgia, Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff's who shifted control of the chamber were sworn in and this is ahead of some very heavy lifts ahead. The chambers. New Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in his floor in his former marks, said quote I need to catch my breath so much is happening. But he's already highlighted three big tasks ahead a Senate impeachment trial for former President Donald Trump confirming Biden's Cabinet nominees and taking up a $1.9 trillion biting proposal for new coronavirus coronavirus relief aid. Yeah, Those are three very big tasks. What are Republicans saying about the next steps? We saw Republican leaders extending all of branch today trying to bridge some of this dramatic divide the trump years brought with Democrats. For example, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged this transfer of power in his hopes to work with Biden. And this is the theme I heard from other Republicans today, they thought bite, instruct the right tone. In his inauguration speech, lifting these bipartisan hopes I talked to Alaska senators Lisa Murkowski, Let's take a listen. You can still disagree from a policy perspective and you can do so in ways that are still respectful and allow you to continue to work towards other goals. I also caught up with GOP Senator Susan Collins of Maine, who sounded a similar note. She said Biden struck those right themes of unity and a call for parties to stop viewing one another as adversaries, and she stands ready to advance their common goals. And West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin told Capitol Hill reporters today that a bipartisan group that includes workhouse game Collins would be meeting with Biden administration in the coming days. So again, this bipartisan theme was much of what I heard today from both sides. So how are they plan to tackle impeachment, massive legislation and confirming Biden's cabinet all at once? That will be a real test for whether members can talk into gum at the same time, as they like to say. Democrats are betting they can. One proposal that's being entertained is whether they can split their days between an impeachment trial and confirming these nominees. But first they need to reach a power sharing agreement with Republicans. Then they hope to tackle these big ticket items at warp speed in the coming days.

House prepares to impeach Trump for inciting the U.S. Capitol riot

"Democrats are moving forward with the plan to impeach President Trump for a second time. President has just nine days left in office, and Democrats say this week they plan to file an impeachment resolution. This follows Trump's incitement of his supporters last Wednesday, hundreds of whom descended on the U. S Capitol. The violent scene left five people dead, including a Capitol police officer and NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell is here with us this morning with the latest take healthy. Good morning. How will this impeachment proceeding work? Well, it will start today when Democrats plan to bring up a resolution that would call on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th amendment. Democrats will try to pass that unanimously, but Republicans could and probably will block it with just one objection. After that, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is basically giving Pence 24 hours. I kind of ultimatum to decide if he's going to invoke the 25th amendment. If he doesn't she plans to bring the process you know to Ah, hold of bring together the process to hold a vote on impeachment. Which could happen as early as Wednesday. Now on the question of impeachment, it's currently just one article referring to incitement to insurrection. It's based on Trump's address to the crowd before the riots began, and his attempts to overturn the election in 2020 more than 200. Democrats have signed on, and I'm told that they expect some Republicans will support it, too. You know, Democrats are pretty unified and saying what happened? The capital cannot be swept under the rug. Is that Trump can't be allowed to simply leave office without any consequences, And they want to make sure that the Senate has the opportunity to vote to convict so that it can bar trump from holding future federal office. Okay, Kelsey. This actually brings me to the question of Republicans. We heard a few of them say over the last few days, they want Trump out of office. How widespread? Is that feeling within the GOP, you know, some of that is kind of hard to gauge because most of them have been quiet. We know that Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski was the first to say that Trump should resign, but she's been joined by retiring Senator Pat Toomey. He was asked about this yesterday on CNN. I think at this point with just a few days left, it's the best half forward. Now there are a few others that agree. But some others, like Missouri Senator Roy Blunt, who's part of Republican leadership, says he basically wants Trump to be quiet for 10 days and just leave. You know, House Republican leaders have also mostly been silent, except for Liz Cheney, who has often broken with the rest of House Republican leadership when it comes to Trump Okay. This process the house wants to do is is really quick. But there's still the Senate, right? And you know, that is really the wild card here because Republicans will control the Senate until the Georgia elections are certified. And then the Senate has to meet and do some required organizing work. So that means that Mitch McConnell would control the timing and the Senate is out of session. So what would need to happen is they would have to bring them back into session. They would start a trial basically around Inauguration Day. Once an impeachment trial is triggered in the Senate, it stops everything else from happening. It forces senators to come to the Senate floor stick down six days a week until the trial concludes, and that could take weeks. House Minority Whip Jim Clyburn floated a proposal that he says could solve it. Here He is yesterday on CNN President Look Bad 100 days he needs to get his agenda off and running. Maybe we'll send you the articles. Sometimes after that, Ah, 100 Days is a really long time And that could be well after Trump leaves office And you know, Democrats want to proceed for all the reasons I've mentioned before, but this creates a really complicating political moment for Biden as he tries to, you know, move forward and move the country ahead. And this is all happening. I 30 seconds with you as we prepare for Joe Biden's inauguration. What are the concerns about safety? Yeah, they're still concerns the capitals a little bit like a fortress right now, with fences and National Guard troops and there. There's a process of a review right now. But there are serious concerns about whether or not the capital but will be fully safe for the bite. Administration were told that there are really efforts right now trying to Trying to beef up security and take every precaution. Possible.

"Work continues on a covert 19 relief bill compromise some moderate senators from both parties trying to hammer out a deal worth about $800 billion Democrat Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

This is hope. Is his hope. For those who have been asking their Congress to be responsive. What they've seen in the face of this pandemic. Democrats appear increasingly resigned to having to drop their demand for fiscal relief for states and local governments.

"We find this balance and that balance it is is is so important. I'm sorry I keeping her one more thing or my uncle in law was a former senator from Arkansas and he had on his desk facing out to assign when people came in his office. which is Arkansas comes first? So in addition to describing how you're going to on navigate these two four cents at Alaska. Can you talk about how you balance that against whatever the national answers are so I should and get twenty minutes answer but I should get that sign for my desk to although I think people know that I feel pretty strongly about that we are a state where seven hundred twenty thousand people. When we came into the union just shy of sixty years ago it was made very clear? Look you're never gonNA have enough people to support yourself from a permit from a tax base perspective it's your resources that will sustain you and that is is the story that was the story at statehood. That's is a story that continues today. Believe it or not. We're a state where eighty five percent of our state's budget comes from one place lace eighty. Five percent of our state's budget comes from oil so when the price of oil is down when production is down what happens to our state in terms of of the Treasury had we pay for public safety roads and and the like so if we want to be that state that has resources to help whether it is moving villages whether it is getting our state off. Aw of off of diesel I think about that you think about Alaska and you think okay what I know about it is you got you got oil up on the north but you. You've you've got this sixty five billion dollars in the bank as part of your permanent fund so it must be a pretty nice place and oh by the way I also heard that you give everybody an annual dividend from that. That's all true but what we what we what we don't have been one is is is communities that are connected by grid so so we literally don't have a road grid. We've got a highway that goes from from seward to fairbanks and then down and we don't have electric grids so to speak. We've got one rail belt line and after that everybody is on their own. And think about what that means when everybody's on your own in southeast where it's a rainforest you've got a hydro which is your energy but you're limited within your ability to provide for transmission line so you've got all these island did Energy Reggie Systems and the rest of the state you just are not connected so no road no electric let me give you a little factoid. Here over eighty percent of the communities in the state of Alaska are not connected by a road. Think what that means. How do you get stuff off? How do you get your food? How do you get your building materials? How do you move around? It's crazy expensive and then you put on that that the fact that in so many of these communities they continue to be powered by diesel generation. And so you say oh well you get your diesel missile from your the North Slope. Well we don't we send that down a pipeline. We send that down south to be refined them they send it back to us and then we have to put it on a barge or an airplane to get to us so you get out to the village on the Yukon River and you're paying eight nine ten dollars a gallon to keep warm arm in a cold place so what we're trying to do. Necessity is the mother of invention and we got a lot of mothers inventing extraordinary do things because we have to because we are so high cost in a cold place where you need to keep warm. And so we're pioneering with with micro grids we are. We're doing more in Alaska because we have to and we're doing it with a little bit of Ingenuity Luethi. Maybe a couple of wind turbines bring in some solar panels get a little river turban gun energy storage by literally literally Chevy Volt batteries. That are stacked up on Costco Racks. But we've got. We've got imagination that is going on. That is being viewed you not only by the experts in our national labs around the country but people around the world that are looking to Alaska because for us. We're going to have to figure out how we reduce our emissions kind of on our own because it's not like we can we can. We can deal with it through the utilities because it's really that's limited in terms of its scope job so we're doing a lot of pioneering that people don't know about we're okay with that we'll share with you when when when you're ready but but you ask about about the balance and how we balance Alaska's interest with the national interest. I I get it I take it back to in order for us to be able to make this transition to to clean energy. We gotta have. We have to have the resources to be able to fund it. Because we know we're not going to be getting that much from from the federal government to assist because again we're small scale where small we're small in the total scheme of things. So how we balance that continues to be a challenge Allen Jr but how we push those who are accessing these these fossil resources to do it in a manner that is not not only more clean but really reducing that overall environmental footprint. We've got we've got to push to make sure the word that is a significant part of the equation as well terrific now. I you know this better than I do. But of course carbon bracing does create all kinds of new revenues. That can help grease the wheels. But that's one piece of the puzzle energy. Okay now. My thirteen year old daughter would be very very upset. If I didn't ask the following question she is. I think I think it's starting to melt away slowly but still it is true that she's one hundred percent convinced That boys certainly myself certainly son or an inferior species and twenty five women in the US Senate not not now two hundred fifty right now in fifty. So how'd Senate be different if there were more women and what should men learn from women and well. It's totally you're asking this towards the end because we could have taken up the whole conversation. I I am a firm believer that women by their very nature. Bring a level of collaboration that I think is important to any process says and I am a big advocate to try to encourage more women in all levels of of a public policy and we. We're we're kind of high fiving ourselves that we've gotten to two twenty five. When I came? We were at eleven so we have made some some progress. But I find it just astonishing that when we look to other countries in terms of their parents and their structure. We're telling them you you need to make sure that you've got basically a fifty fifty split in in in your form of government with women to men and yet we have have been just not looking at ourselves in terms of how women are are engaged aged in the policy. So I I will share with you that the women do things not in a monolithic. Nick manner it's not like okay because we're women a women we all vote the same way on this. It's crazy but what we do try to do that. I think is healthy. Is it tried to build those personal relationships so about every six weeks the women are the Senate get together. Somebody agrees to host Sometimes it'll be at the member's house there in DC or if they don't have a very very big house enough for fifteen or twenty of says you know we will do it in a in. Somebody's office or or in a restaurant and we gathered together. And there's three rules. No staff off notes no leaks. We're just there to share one another's company and sometimes it's just having a glass of wine and complaining whining about you. Know who's running the show and I gosh. I can't believe they're doing this. And other times we talk about our kids. Our family relationships. Some stresses of the job and other times we talk about some very significant issues of the day and what we might be able to do to help influence that outcome. But what what we try to do is remind one another that we're in positions Of Great.

"We can't do this. And they had every reason why we shouldn't. But I felt strongly that we could add Chris back that up and and Chris kept up his side of the bargain. He went out and said good things about saying that we would feel better if we had this investigation. So I went and voted to moving along the process, but only if we had an FBI investigation and Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski called and said that they would back me up, and that was all it took leadership had to deal with us when you saw leader McConnell. What did he tell you? Well, his effort was still to try to keep it to our timeframe. You know, where we could vote the next day. Can we do a very quick FBI investigation? We said, no, no it has to be up to a week. It doesn't need to be more than a week. But I can say leadership was not happy they weren't. But they knew that that was the only way they might be able to to get out. And so we presented it and they had to accept it. Do you think looking back that Senator Feinstein should've at least had a conversation? With chairman check wrassling about the letter early on. I do I do I'm not one that believes that she's the one that leaked it dealt with her for a long time. And I think that she did her best to protect. Dr Ford, but somebody leaked it at some point. And that was really not fair to Dr Ford, but I do think that would have been better had they sat down early on and said, here's a serious allegation. Let's treat it in a way that that really honors the institution and honors those who who are involved we are in the Russell Senate office building. Should it be the McCain Senate office? I'd like that I think that would solve a number of purposes, John McCain needs to be recognized here, and that would be an appropriate way. I believe. Do you? Remember the first time you met him. You know, it was when I was in the first one was memorable. When I was here as an intern. I wasn't his intern. I was Dennis DeConcini the democratic Senator from Arizona's intern. I often joke with McCain that has standards were too high for me, and I couldn't make it under. But that I met him during that time I had admired him from afar in Arizona. Certainly when I was there, but I've been away at school out of state for a while. But I was immediately impressed and just given his history and what he'd been through. But over the years that admiration only group, and it's been a real honor for the last six years to have served with him. He of course, had the seat the dairy Goldwater one's head. What is very Goldwater held both seats. So we always a bit of trivia, but he held it right after the Goldwater ran for president vacated the seat and then ran for the other ones. Both senators in Arizona can always say they held Goldwater seat. But Senator McCain. A lot like Goldwater in so many ways. Yeah. The Goldwater legacy in the country and in the Republican party. What is it? Oh, it's rugged individualism Libertarian-leaning, independent conservatives. Shortened is Arizona conservatism. I guess where you obviously believe in principles of limited government, economic freedom, individual responsibility. But with a maverick flair. I guess you will walk out these doors for a final time in December. What do you think you'll be thinking? This has been a real honor and a privilege. I'm not leaving because I don't like the institution or the people. This is a wonderful system that we have here. It's a system that is so good that it. Corrects for the of all of us who who make our way through it. So I will leave here with more respect for the institution that I came here with. And with a real appreciation for the friendships. On both sides of the aisle, just wonderful people here. I hope that..

And we'll have that interview for you in just a second. Very interesting insight. We talked a lot about the mid-term which is going to be so important. And and there's a lot going on when it comes to that. Especially in Texas. You've got this guy. Robert Francis calls himself bet he's not Hispanic at all because it was a CTO Aurora take you Ted Cruz who's the incumbent, and we talk a lot about that. Certainly before we do that. Let me grab a quick phone. Call Lisa Murkowski in Alaska for some reason is voting against Brad Kavanagh and gave no good reason. As to why we're trying to get Sarah Palin on the former governor of Alaska trying to get her on Monday to talk about Lisa Murkowski, what's going on there and the ramifications of this vote, Shirley what's going on in Florida. Hi, hi tags. So thanks for taking my call. You bet gusted with the Republicans like Lisa Murkowski. That doesn't. I mean, she had no reason after vote for judge Cavanaugh, and I'm just set up with those kind of rhino Republicans slumped, welling Republicans and a lot of my feel the same way. We're just so fed up with them. They just don't stick together. But they did come together a little bit at the end here. But I mean, if they don't come together at the end, they're going to be made fools of when it comes to election day, they had to do our bidding. Finally, I think they finally felt the pressure of us good. That was good because I made a few calls to a couple of the secretaries and told him to help that up. I was with them. It's a very smart move. I appreciate you. I really do. And I think more people need to do that are senators need to hear from us need to understand that we're not messing around. All right. I had a chance to catch up with the president's son earlier this week, and we mainly focused on the mid term. We also focused on the economy. We talked about the cabinet boat certainly in much more. It is Donald Trump junior. Donna. Appreciate you. How are you? I'm doing. Well. How about yourself doing great really really great to talk to you. And we've got just like a litany of stuff. We've got to get to start with what really makes sense to me. And I started this way with Eric of interviewed. I think, you know, seven times or something. Yeah. I've actually been to the White House debut your dad, which was an incredible experience. But I just have to go back for a second and asked the same question of you that I asked your dad why you guys you guys were the top of the. All the time. Isn't it? The first question that you have to look I get it. You guys love the country. Your father has sacrificed so much for for the better of the of the country. But man, you guys had everything you could possibly ever want. Is that question easier to answer or not easy to answer? What the reality is. You don't we all, and especially you know, he loves this country. He's a guy that seen it. He's seen it all he understands. How the games played? He's lived the American dream. I mean, you know, his family is of the American dream. You know, my grandfather. Was it was a great success? I mean, he became the man of the house that I think it was thirteen years old when his father died, and guess what he went to work because he was the man of the house at thirteen. And so, you know, you see all of that you see the nonsense platform for the leftist putting up you start pushing back, and my father was kinda guy. He's been very vocal about it for this way into the Bush administration. So it's a stupid. I mean, there's the clip on Oprah from eighty he's talking about, you know, stupid trade deals. I mean, finally he had enough. And he's the kind of guy that doesn't just talk smack. He actually will get in the fight. And he's the kind of guy that says, okay, I've said enough now it's time to to actually step up and do it. And when he puts his mind to something he does a good job of it. He suggested to you. And it's Donald Trump junior. Really glad to have the time when he suggested to you and your and your siblings. I'm probably going to really do. This your initial reaction was of course, she should do it or no way dead. Listen, I I wanted him to do it. I you know, he he'd been Vogel. He'd been so tough on it. And it was time. You know, you you see the nonsense that goes. The reality is that there's no one that could have accomplished what he's been able to do that. No one that you know, so few that ever signed the front of a paycheck so few that it ever, you know, in our whole political system that had ever had their someone's family, someone's livelihood their safety and wellbeing of their kids and grandkids dependent on their success. He'd actually done it. I mean that was the big laugh I had last week when Obama's running around claiming this economy. I remember it went Obama say, hey, you didn't build that. It's like now it right because his policies of oppressive taxation insane regulation. They general hatred towards business. You didn't build that Obama himself. When my father saying, I don't know why we couldn't have three three and a half four percent. Even even better GDP growth, Obama goes. And I quote, there's no magic wand for that. Right at the New York Times back them up. No, no. Because you know, of course, he can do no wrong. This is the new normal. Well, abracadabra. Of course, we expect Obama to be able to fix anything. You've never done anything. I it turns out. It turns out you're done anything. He'd never had any experience. There was no way we should expect him to be able to fix anything economically. Guess what? My father has done that. He had built businesses. He did build that. And so it shouldn't be a shock to people that were able to turn that around. And now, the Democrats want to reverse all of that they wanna take everything and go one eighty why because we have all time historic lows for blacks in unemployment for Hispanics for women you want to reverse all that. I mean, if the Democrats sorry, Donald Trump came out today in favor of oxygen Democrats would be against it. I mean, that's their policy. It's just hate. But we have to show up. We have to stay in the fight. Because people's they I Don I love when your dad doing it. So great. It's amazing. You know, but. How would we vote for who your congressman? You're voting for November. What do you mean? What's november? Right. They're not even aware they want to vote in two thousand twenty but they don't realize that it can all go away in two thousand eighteen they don't realize that Donald Trump is on the ticket in two thousand eighteen Donald Trump is on the ticket in six weeks. So we gotta get out. We got a mobilize. If you like what's going on make sure it's fight for it. Because the other side, I don't know what they're motivated by their platform is other than you'll hate an outrage. I mean, you know, what their outrage they they should be outraged about their platform and their failures over the last few decades. But they're outraged about something else, but they're turning up. We gotta turn up. I see it all the time. No, no, the same fake news media that said Donald Trump can't win is saying that he's gonna lose now. Believe it. I see the numbers you gotta get out. You gotta stay. We can't just be fat. Lazy and expect us stuff to continue. He needs. He needs guys like Ted Cruz. He needs guys like all of the congressional people in Texas that are up he need those guys helping them. He can't do it by himself. You imagine giving the house to Nancy Pelosi. Is there a question think about it? I mean that would be a disaster for this country. Bring our friends it's trending on drudge today that Nancy Pelosi is saying I'm going to the speaker again, it's Donald Trump junior. And we we always appreciate the time. A couple of things they didn't realize that your dad had the magic wand the the whole time. Common sense and experience. Right. This isn't a magic one. It's just you know, you can't expect a community organizer to e understand let alone actually affects real change when it comes to economic or fiscal policy on fiscal. But think about it. We we've discussed the economy what about foreign policy look at the Iran deal. Look at the Israeli embassy. You look at what's going on in North Korea that took guts. We don't just draw red line in Syria. Like Obama did when they cross it. They slap you in the face. They tried doing that. And we put fifty seven Tomahawk missiles, and and guess what? The rest of the world was watching. Okay, we're not gonna let people take advantage of people. Whether it's trade deals got NAFTA. It can't be renegotiated can't be done. Congratulations in Mexico and Canada now onboard done. When you have a real leader. I wish that we had somebody in journalism and journalism is dead. Now and Hannity says it's all the time to it's it's dead and gone one person steps up and says former President Obama just tell me one thing you did that caused this to happen. Because how do you take credit for it? If you look your dad went one eighty on everything Obama, dead and fixed, everything how can Obama even for a second even think to himself. Yeah. I did that he us. We're not we're not fighting a fair fight. And that's why we all have to get out because we're fighting with one arm to two arms and a leg. It feels like at times because the media look like I said, oh, no. This is the new normal one point eight percent. Well, it didn't that doesn't have to be why why would the New York Times back him up on that? Because they needed to make him a success because they all believe in the asinine policies. You see that? I mean, look at what's going on in Baidoa Ragas putting up a challenge. I mean Baidoa work could run for mayor of New York City and be on the left side of a ticket. His money's coming from all places other Texas because you know, those are the values that he espouses the attacks on law enforcement want to eliminate is on the board only save nine hundred kids last year from sex trafficking. But they're terrible. We should get rid of him. I mean, these people are insane. And so we have to get out. We have to stay motivated. We have to bring our friends, and you can't buy into the media stuff. Just look at what's going on in your businesses. Look at what's going on your place of work, looking your paycheck. I mean, you're winning with these policies.

"Had his his case was to vote to vote. Yes. Vote for cabinet. And we still don't know what mansion is going to do tomorrow in that final vote. How far have people traveled to get to Washington? So we've met people from from Illinois that people from Denver. We've met people from of Michigan. We've the furthest. I think we've heard for instance, that someone has traveled or group of people that have traveled is from Alaska from Anchorage met. Some folks that were part of a hundred women that traveled from Anchorage to try to get in front of Senator Lisa Murkowski to try to influence her vote. They said a group of a number of them met with her yesterday. And they were trying to make sure that she was a no vote which ended up doing in. This cloture vote again what she's going to do tomorrow. We'll just briefly Braxton a lot of protesters have made their way into the capital to try to have their voices. Heard by senators is getting into elevators, etc. What kind of access or protesters getting inside the capitol. Yes, they're they're still getting in have not been inside the capitol today, but they are not being impeded by by capitol police to get in this crisis is going to continue throughout the day. And you can probably see that happening tomorrow as well. Right. That's a Braxton Booker outside the capitol Brockton. Thank you. Thank you. Well, as we continue to follow everything with Brett Cavanaugh at the US capitol today. A number of Senate races are in the balance with four weeks or so to go until election day. Let's get to our Senate tracker series this week. We're looking at the race in Nevada. Where Republican Senator dean Heller is facing a challenge from democratic congresswoman Jackie Rosen and joining us now from Las Vegas is Joe Shane Amon host and senior producer at Nevada public radio. Hijo? Hey, how you doing doing? Well, and let's start with the democratic challenger. Jackie Rosen, a relative newcomer to politics compared to Heller. She was president of her synagogue before. Democrats back in two thousand sixteen tapped her to run for congress where she is serving her first term what else should we know about her just a quick bio, she's sixty one she's the mother of a college age daughter her husband's a radiologist. She lives in Henderson, which is a city adjacent Vegas, and she moved here from the midwest after her parents moved here. This was back in college. She. Was a waitress at Caesars Palace. He had a degree from a community college became a computer programmer. And then she got onto the national scene. Really by surprise when former Senate majority leader Harry Reid asked her to run for the house, which she won in two thousand sixteen beating Danny Tarquini in a really close race. And we remember that Harry Reid represented the state of data. Let's listen to one of the ads from Jackie Rosen. That's airing on TV. She's kind of going on the offensive here. It opens up with a shot of one of those inflatable Gumby type things you see outside a car dealership blowing in the wind. And then she acquaints that to dean Heller. They call them senators.

"Host. He joined the two thousand sixteen election was one of these like famously never Trumpers right? He uninvited Donald Trump from attending his very famous red state gathering. He has been probably one of the most vociferous critics on Twitter defending break Cavanaugh, and I've just been so amazed to see this defense given where he was himself on President Trump just a couple of years ago. Reuniting the right. Do you feel like that's something that can last though? Is that I mean, we've seen so many situations where Republicans have been situationally in support of this president, and then he goes and does something and they are. They are reminded why they found him distasteful in the first place I didn't. I think that's a very good question. I think the only example we can have though, is that when you talk to people about. Out why they may have been lukewarm about President Trump and why they ultimately voted for him in two thousand sixteen. The most consistent explanation I've been given is the supreme court. And so I think if that's our one guiding lesson from two thousand sixteen, it may indicate that that's the one thing that holds true now as well. The way to sort of reunite the Republican base is the supreme court, and perhaps that's what we're seeing. Now, Chelsea, that's a the question that you asked a question that can also be directed at Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins. Yeah. I talked to activists at the very beginning of the cavenaugh confirmation process, and they told me that they thought that this was going to be the very last time. Democrats failed to realize the importance of the courts, and they thought that there would be a lasting impact. Cavanaugh gets confirmed because it will change the way democrat view, both the courts and the relationship between congress, the White House and the it's that it's basically not just about congress. Passing bills that they'd like or president signing executive orders, but that the last line of defense is the court. I just I will be fascinated to see how that shakes out. I think you'd be hard to say right now that are taking the course for granted because they are literally marching in the streets right now, at least some of them. If I walk out the door where I'm sitting right now inside the capitol and look out the window, I can see hundreds of them standing outside right now marching. Yeah. And there are. My view on the Senate side looks out on the supreme court, and I can see all the protesters across the lawn of the capitol and they've been there all day. All right. We are going to put a pin in this for now, but we will no doubt be back to it, Ryan and Kelsey, we're gonna let you go. Thank you. And when we come back President Trump's new deal with Canada and Mexico and can't let it go..

"The details. Now from our Gary Tuchman had traveled to a remote area and Alaska to hear some people's concerns. Catherine Martin is an indigenous Alaskan, a member of the matassa tradition council in while she in about one hundred. Other natives in this village may be far out in the Alaskan wilderness. The are all in on the debate happening in Washington, how many of you want to see judge, Brad Kavanagh be confirmed and end up in the supreme court. Who doesn't. All of you. There are tens of thousands of indigenous people who live in Alaska and passed Senate elections. They voted overwhelmingly for Lisa Murkowski whose vote is key in determining if Brett Cavin makes it to the supreme court. Everyone we talked to and it's village strongly supports Murkowski because they say she understands their way of life and challenges were experiencing rates of sexual abuse and domestic violence at higher rates than anywhere else in the country. And our Senator, Lisa Murkowski, she knows that. So there is great sympathy for Christine Blasi Ford, among many in the native community. And among everyone we talked to win this remote village as a survivor of sexual abuse. I think it takes years for people to come out with this. You know some victims as some victims come out with it immediately, but I think that some victims it takes them a while before that they're able to talk about it. And I think this is what happened with this lady. I think he is his Gorman's rights and including. The rights, and that's the other huge issue working against Cavanaugh and likely wing Senator mccaskey's mind native rights in a case that went to the US supreme court. Kevin question whether the constitutional protections given to native American tribes should also be given to native Hawaiians people here think that bodes poorly for them. How concerned are you that Alaska native rights could be taken away. Brad Kavanagh ends up in the supreme court. It's our way of life. Alaskan natives consider themselves a modest people, but many of them are not particularly modest about the political influence. They believe they hold, which they think Senator Lisa Murkowski needs to keep in mind. Just last week, indigenous. Alaskans were arrested while protesting outside the Washington DC office of Alaska's other US Senator Dan Sullivan. Nobody expects Sullivan vote against Cavanaugh, but the message for Alaska's other Senator is loud and clear. So if Lisa Murkowski vote ultimately to confirm Kevin on the supreme court, what were your thoughts about Lisa Murkowski. Have my support in the future. How do you feel about that? She won't have my full support either. What about you? I wouldn't. I would not write her name are pretty check my name. Would any of you still vote for Lisa Murkowski? No. No. So you're counting on her to vote? No. Yes. And would you be surprised if she did vote? Yes, very. And Gary joins me now is there since if Murkowski has given her constituents any indication as to how she my vote. While the people we talked to that village Anderson, they have faith that she will vote their way, but they certainly don't know for sure today in Capitol Hill Senator talked to some reporters, she said, quote, the FBI needs to be free to do its job is the investigating body. But that also doesn't tell us very much not nearly as much as something she said last week in this could be very notable and important, get much publicity, but it was a local reporter with Alaska public media who is talking to the Senator in Washington about the metoo movement, and she asked the Senator, have you ever had a metoo moment? And the Senator said, yes, but did not elaborate and I could prove to be significant. Gary. Thanks very much reminder. Don't miss full circle or daily interactive newscast and Facebook.

"Lawyers for Dr Ford. Are insisting that there should be an investigation with no limits time or otherwise. These Republicans are such damn fools. And you know, what it's not even the Republicans, generally. It's three of them. And it's almost always the same damn three. Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Jeff flake. Anything they're independent. They're not independent. They have no coverage whatsoever to stand up to this mob. Now, ladies and gentlemen, I don't define. My character by what the left demands. I don't define Justice by what the left demands. I don't define the culture and society by what the left demands. This is not a case about all women. It's not a case about all women who've been sexually molested. This is a matter about two individuals. An accuser and accused. Regardless of their gender. That's the way Justice works. You've got to have more than an accusation. Otherwise, we're all guilty all the time. Otherwise, your children are all guilty all the time. This spectacle in the United States Senate. The Senate Judiciary committee wouldn't be allowed in an elementary school where there's an accusation. There has to be something more when you suspend a child. When you suspend a confirmation. Mr. flake is a coward. There's nothing noble about him. Susan Collins is a coward. There's nothing noble about her. Lisa Murkowski is a coward. There's nothing noble about her. They refuse to stand up for basic Justice. Something men and women have fought for and died for throughout the history of this country. Something an entire revolution was fought for. The media like to talk about freedom of the press. Rather essential central rights too? Mike due process like probable cause. Presumption of innocence. The Democrats rejected all. They keep turning to the FBI. We need another FBI investigation. Now, there should be no limits next. They're gonna say Cavanaugh. She get a lie detector test. I'm telling you. We have no idea who Dr Ford is. Ladies and gentlemen, people are painting a picture for you. And you're being told accept it. Don't question. It. Except that don't question it.

"It sounds good. We just want to know the facts as you know, and Kim knows it's, it's it's a matter going to people that you put down in this case all the witnesses and just saying what your story do you, do you know any of this and then you ask, is there anyone else I can talk. To. I mean, in theory could go to every single person at Georgetown prep and with salt narms and you could ask everyone, do you remember red cavenaugh doing this? So, but what's missing all this is it sounds plausible, but I think Senator Crepeau put it yesterday. The Senate investigators have already done this. They've gone to all these. It's not like there's no investigation they've got the, so we're probably going to get is a lot of confirmation of what we already know and not too much else knew we might get new kind of, unfortunately, sleazy stories about some of the characters from high school, different people. I don't know why they're their lives would have to be exploded out in public view this way, but we're not going to, I think, would get any more evidence for this. It's it's, it's another bad faith move. And again, the reason we have it goes back to the beginning. Everything was about the votes. When you have a fifty. One seat majority can only lose one person. And they're afraid they could lose Jeff flake. Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins, the the FBI if this is if this would go ahead, it's going to do the same thing that the Senate staff did. They're going to say, Mark judge who is the per- other person in the room that Christine Ford says was in the room with the with Brad Kavanagh. When she was salted, they're gonna say, Mr. judge. Can we talk to you now if I were judge? Well, I can't imagine judge is going to talk to the FBI first of all, he can't be subpoenaed by. He has to be seen by the committee, can't be subpoenaed by the FBI because this is the same statement that he gave the. This isn't a criminal probe. This is not. Let's repeat. This is not a criminal probe. This is a background investigation. Okay, that's the role. The FBI has played in plays a nominations, so they will go to Mr. judge and they will say, we'd like to talk to you on and he could participate or. Could not. And if he doesn't, that's it. And if he does, he'll probably say the same thing, here's my statement to the Senate committee. This is what I told them. If if that then you're basically left with repeating what has already been investigated him. Well, right, and this gets to the farce. I think one of the most important things to come out of the hearing yesterday the Ford cavenaugh hearing, and I had some Senate people mentioned this to me too, as it was became very clear in the Republicans kept mentioning this. The Democrats at adamantly refused to take part in that Senate investigation because they wanted the excuse that the FBI needed to do it. But in reality, as it was explained to me, these Senate investigation are far more appropriate. In fact, in the FBI for this reason and that they had the ability to call all of the same people. The difference being is the senators can specifically direct who they call. And what questions to ask and what follow up to go back to and who else to call the Senate has much more control every individual Senator does. Were they to take part in how these investigations, what they uncover and how they roll. And the idea, the Democrats are suggesting that the FBI is going to get more their decision to abdicate from that entire process suggested they don't really care about getting facts here. This is about delay. The Democrats, motivation I'm convinced is to delay, push this off, get get another week then by another week, then by another week. And pretty soon you're past the election and maybe they have the majority and maybe they leave an empty seat on the supreme court for two and a half more years. Okay. Very, I'm convinced that that's their motivation. But what about Jeff flake and Lisa Murkowski, Bill and who knows? Maybe it's a group of four, five, we don't know. But let's say it's just those two. What is their motive in calling for this FBI investigation with flake already voted to confirm out of committee? Well, he reversed themselves today, right from the morning to the afternoon..
