You get. I mean, the closest analogy. Not in any very lifetimes is probably Franklin Roosevelt, Taking off step during the Depression finds got a lot of challenges ahead of them. But I think one thing I take comfort from My Democratic and Republican colleagues who is well is that he's put a very experienced, very highly qualified team on the field. Nobody disputes that you might disagree with some of these people ideologically or around the edges a little bit. Man. He really has a good group of people assembled. And I find this because as all of this was happening back here in Washington, D. C in my neck of the woods, I mean, the talk of the town was Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. I mean, he really laid into President Trump on the Senate floor and words that I had not seen. From the leader's office in years and I've got sound on this and take a listen take a listen to what to what leader, McConnell said on the Senate floor earlier today. The last time the center convened We're just reclaimed the capital from violent criminals. Tried to stop Congress from doing our duty. The mob was fed lies.

But to hear him say that a person who is enabled Donald trumps takeover of the federal court system, and the Supreme Court is got to be a shock to most of the Republican colleagues he has in the Senate, and I think the real signal We're gonna have a real impeachment trial coming up here Well, and also he's He's not saying how he's going to vote. But you hear that, and it's It's really It's you're hard pressed to say, OK, anyone who listens to that clip He's not leaning in the direction of voting to convict right recommend. You know this. I think it's clear that where his head is, and he said he made that statement last week that, um hey sees Donald Trump is being responsible for what happened at the Capitol. It falls into the impeachment claim of incitement of insurrection. And yet he's.

"Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pointing his finger at President Trump for quote. Hoping to spur the attack on the Capitol two weeks ago. McConnell says. After years of supporting Mr Trump, he has not decided whether or not he will vote to convict him. California as quite a grim milestone, California has become the first state to reach three million known Corona virus infections. The Golden State reached the grim milestone Monday in the tally by Johns Hopkins University. Alarmingly, California only reached two million caseloads on December 24th. It took 292 days for California to go from its first coronavirus case last January, 25th One million infections on November 11th. But it took just 44 days to top two million. On average, California has seen about 500 deaths and 40,000 new cases daily For the past two weeks. I might cross eoe also and town hall dot com. President he'd like Joe Biden moving to dismiss a new White House. New Korean Over 19 travel rules as President Trump is now on his final full day, Donald Trump announced he was widening the ban on travelers to the US to include the U. K and most of Europe last March at a time when there were just over 1000 confirmed cases of the Corona virus in the U. S. Airlines are known to have been lobbying the president to lift it. In a proclamation issued less than two days before he's due to leave office, Mr Trump suddenly announced that he was prepared to do so only to be rebuffed by a Biden administration spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, who tweeted that instead of lifting restrictions on international travel. The incoming administration, instead intended to tighten them more on these stories at challenge hall dot com. Signed off the O'Reilly update Message of the day hurting America. We all know the country is divided and getting more so. Most of us understand that another impeachment trial in the Senate will only exacerbate word of the day exacerbate. Political hatred. So I believe President Biden and Senator Mitch McConnell should both speak out against the trial. This combined, of course, would be criticized by his party. If he did that, and he doesn't like to be criticized. He has that in common with Donald Trump. But don't tell me you want to unite the country, Mr President. If you support An impeachment play in the Senate, because, you know That Million's of Trump voters. Well, just like that. Senator McConnell, Republican. Is another story. What is the benefit? Mitch McConnell, telling Republican senators That Well, you might vote for impeachment. It's not a problem if you do. 16 Republicans must cross over. And find Mr Trump guilty. For him to be symbolically removed from office. Of course, he's out of office. So all of this is a show. But instead of saying We don't need this, this is unnecessary. Mitch McConnell is not doing that. His McConnell think this is helping the Republican Party. It's not It's dividing it. It's making Democrats stronger. This is not about justice. You can believe whatever you want to believe about Donald Trump, but you cannot prove that he directly incited violence at the Capitol. And as we pointed out, and others have as well, he has exculpatory statements. A few minutes before that horror unfolded at the Capitol. So he would never Be convicted in any kind of a cord of anything. Yet. They're going to drag him into the Senate, and he will not have to be there physically. But they're gonna try to humiliate President Trump further. Why Other than hatred and vengeance now I believe Mitch McConnell does not like Donald Trump. I believe it's personal with McConnell. He is a very arrogant man. I know that firsthand because I dealt with him on case law, which he destroyed a single handedly. I also believe Mitch McConnell is power mad. And he's mad that he lost his Senate majority position because of the election in Georgia. He blames Trump Trump blames him because McConnell blocked The $2000 Cove. It checks So we have a big mess. But shouldn't all of these politicians in Washington put the country first? What's good for the country. I'll tell you, and it's simple. For us and now proceed with the Biden administration. Put the Trump administration in the rear view. Stop the madness and stop the hatred. I'm Bill O'Reilly and I approve that message by writing. It disagree. I'd like to hear from you Bill it.

The Senate's out of session until January 19th and binds inauguration is the next day. Impeachment trials require senators to be in their seats and must meet six days a week until the trial concludes, making it difficult to approve any legislation or nomination while the trials ongoing If all 50 Democrats vote to convict they'd need a minimum of 17 Republicans to join them to get a conviction If Trump were convicted, which appears unlikely the Senate could then vote to bar him from ever holding public office

We saw senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell saying he hadn't made up his mind yet when it comes to impeachment sleep which was huge. That's the senate majority leader Saying he's considering possibly voting to convict president trump. It'll be interesting to see whether or other republican senators follow suit. There had been some reporting that mitch. Mcconnell was was looking at impeachment as a way to purge the party of trump because of president. Trump is convicted by the senate. You would not be able to run again in twenty twenty four and that's part of the reason. Impeachment was such an appealing option for democrats. I think what happened today. Though when we saw you know a vast majority of house. Republicans did not vote to impeach. The president there were ten. Did vote to impeach the president but a vast majority of them while condemning president trump condemning his rhetoric condemning his actions. These still didn't feel impeachment was warranted. So i'm really curious to see how senators look at this. Whether they have the same considerations we saw president trump putting out that video shortly after he was impeached. Putting out a pre recorded video during which he tried to condemn the violence at the capitol. It'll be interesting to see whether that's enough for republican senators. Abc's as kotehra with us.

A Special Conversation with Congressman Ritchie Torres

"Representative ritchie. Torres is a freshman member of congress. From new york's fifteenth congressional district. He is proudly progressive and proudly pro israel and we had hoped to have him on to talk about how important it is to make that progressive case for israel the riot at the capitol changed our plans unfortunately and he joins us now to talk about what comes next representative torres so much for joining us and honor for me to be here. Last wednesday was extremely scary for all of us. But i can't even imagine what it would have been like to be in the capital for it and we're also not entirely out of the woods yet with possible. Threats still brewing. Think so let me start here and just ask this. How are you holding up. It has been the most draining and disorienting week of my life. If a year ago you had said that. I would become a member of congress during infectious disease outbreak and that i would witness of violent insurrection against the us capital during the electoral college. Vote count and that i would then impeach donald trump. Not only once but twice. I would have said that has the feel of movie. I'm still in a state of shock. And i'm in a state of shock that a sitting president would instigate a violent mob to storm the us capital in an attempt to overturn the results of a presidential election. You are among the members of congress calling for the house to impeach president trump again. Although i suppose this is your first time impeaching him and that's a process that looks set to move forward this week. People are also talking about a resolution censuring ham or demanding resigned or using the twenty fifth or the fourteenth amendment's to remove him from office. What would satisfy you hear. What kind of action do you think that this moment calls for will. The best outcome is removal. And we've presented the vice president would alternate him. Is you invoke the twenty fifth amendment or else. We have no choice but to move forward with impeachment. It is clear that the vice president refuses to invoke the twenty fifth amendment in conjunction with a majority of the cabinet so we have no choice but to impeach donald trump the violent mob. He unleashed on the. Us capital represents unprecedented assault on the separation of powers between the congress and the president. A represents an unprecedented assault on the peaceful transfer of power from one president to the next if striking at the core of our constitutional republic is not an impeachable offense. Then what is impeachment for no choice just moments before you and i connected. The new york times reported that senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell is actually pleased with the impending impeachment. do you think with mcconnell. 's implicit blessing. There's actually a chance that the senate might remove president trump from office so there are three outcomes spouse majority is required for impeachment a senate super majority is required for conviction and then once impeach convicted a senate majority is required for disqualification so the ultimate goal is not simply removed donald trump from office but to disqualify him from ever pursuing federal office again because he has shown himself to be a lethal threat to the republic is clear and present danger to the constitutional republic and what about aside from president. Trump are their members of congress. Either with you in the house or in the senate who you think crossed the line in what took place last week. There were several enablers of donald trump in the united states congress and elsewhere who spent months inflaming the disaffected supporters of donald trump. One example is congressman. Mel brooks went to the march and instigated an armed angry mob to vote. Take names and kick ass. He should be held out. We as elected officials have to be mindful of the words believes. What does it mean to be held accountable in this instance though. What does that look like expulsion at the conduct of for me. The attempt to overturn the results of an election the attempt to instigate a violent mob to take over the us capitol if that is not grounds for expulsion. That i honestly don't know what it's these members of congress and donald trump inspired a violent mob that led to the murder of police office was bludgeoned to death by a fire. Extinguisher are their image. Is of a rioter in the senate chamber wearing tactical gear with plastic handcuffs. As though he were planning to take hostages right. I'm convinced that there were rioters. Who were intent on apprehending and assassinating members of congress. The majority leader the speaker and even the vice president is a video of rieter screaming. The vice president should be hanged a news and a gala were erected outside the capitol and the president was tweeting out against his own vice-president in real time while the capitol was under siege was pouring more gasoline on the fire above violence. He put not only congress at rescue. Put the life of his own vice president. Aris one of your fellow freshman members Also said something to the effect of when speaking to people who are concerned about the outcome of the election He said it's okay to threaten them a little right.

It should be cause for concern and you know trumpism is going to have more staying power than trump. I worry that violent white nationalism. Violent antisemitism and racism is going to be a fact of life that will continue to haunt us. Now i think of politics as an alternative to violence. Politics is about the resolution of conflict by means other than violence and if there is a set of the population that loses confidence in politics that sees it as illegitimate and trump has convinced them. That it's illegitimate then. That segment is going to resort to violence. The d. legitimation politics is an open invitation to violence. And i think the jewish community in particular has the most state because history has taught us that paranoid. Conspiratorial politics is often a breeding ground fantasy sentences.

"Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will not call senators into emergency session presented impeachment trial if the House impeaches President Trump for a second time. Moments ago on the House floor. House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy says President Trump Bears responsibility but stopped short of the supporting impeachment. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding. These facts require immediate action. But President Trump except his share of responsibility, quell the brewing unrest and ensure President elect Biden is able to successfully begin his term and the president's immediate action also deserves congressional action. Which is why I think a fact finding commission and a censure resolution would be prudent. Unfortunately, that is not where we are today.

GOP senator: Trump 'committed impeachable offenses'

"Appears to be growing for a push to impeach President Trump again. In an interview today with Fox News, Republican Senator Pat Toomey said he believes President Trump has committed impeachable offenses tonight. We're gonna give you both sides of the story. California Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu says 180 lawmakers have co sponsor an article of impeachment drafted yesterday. He says House judiciary members will introduce the legislation on Monday. While some Republicans have called for the president's removal from office. Many GOP lawmakers are not expected to vote to impeach the president. Majority leader Mitch McConnell adjourn the Senate until at least January 19th, meaning it's highly unlikely that the Senate will take up the articles on the floor before President elect Biden's inauguration. According to our news nation research team. Impeachment could have major implications on the president's ability to run for office again if he chooses to do so in 2024. Article one Section three of the Constitution says If a president is impeached and convicted, the Senate can disqualify him or her from future office. However, it would come down to what happens in the Senate Senators have never convicted. Or removed as sitting president from office.

Democratic leader, Mr President, Mr President. It is very, very difficult to put into words what has transpired today I have never lived through or even imagined experience like the one we have just witnessed in this capital President Franklin Roosevelt set aside December 7th 1941 as a day that will live Is an infamy. Unfortunately, we can now add January 6th 2021 to that very short list of dates in American history that will live forever in infamy. This temple to democracy was desecrated. Its windows smashed, our offices vandalized the world saw Americans elected officials. Hurriedly ushered out because they were in harm's way. The House and Senate floors were places of shelter until the evacuation was ordered, leaving rioters to stalk these hallowed halls. Lawmakers in our stabs average citizens who love their country serve it every day feared for their lives. I understand that one woman was shot and tragically lost her life. Mourn her and feel for her friends and family. These images were projected to the world foreign embassies cabled home their capital, their home capitals to report the harrowing scenes at the very heart of our democracy. This will be a stain on our country not so easily washed away. Final, terrible, indelicate, indelible legacy of the 45th, president of the United States. Undoubtedly our worst. I want to be very clear. Those who perform these reprehensible acts cannot be called protesters. No These were riders and insurrectionists, goons and thugs. Domestic terrorists. They do not represent America. There were a few 1000 violent extremists who tried to take over the Capitol building and attack our democracy they must and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Hopefully by this administration, if not certainly By the next they should be. They should be provided no leniency. I want to thank the many of the Capitol Hill Police and Secret Service and local police, who kept a safe today and work to clear the capital and return it to its rightful owners and its rightful purpose. I want to thank the leaders, Democrat and Republican House and Senate. It was Speaker Pelosi leader McConnell leader McCarthy and myself who came to Gather and decided that these thugs would not succeed that we would finish the work of our constant that our Constitution requires us to complete in the very legislative chambers of the house and Senate that were desecrated, But we know always belong to the people and do again tonight. But make no mistake. Make no mistake my friends. Today's events did not happen spontaneously. The president to promoted conspiracy theories that motivated these thugs. The president who exhorted them to come to our nation's capital, egged him on He hardly ever discourages violence and more often encourages it. This president, there's a great deal of the blame this mob was in good part, President Trump's doing incited by his words, His lies this violence in good part. His responsibility is everlasting Shame. Today's Events certainly certainly would not have happened without him. Now. January 6 will go down as one of the darkest days in recent American history. Ah, final warning to our nation about the consequences of a demagogic president, the people who enabled him the captive media that parents his lies. The people who follow him as he attempts to push America to the brink of ruin. As we reconvene tonight, let us remember. In the end. All this mom has really accomplished is to delay your work by a few hours. We will resume our responsibilities now and we will finish our task tonight. The House and Senate Chambers will be restored good as new And ready for legislating. In short order. The counting of the electoral votes is our sacred duty. Democracy's roots in this nation are deep, They're strong, and they will not be undone ever by a group of thugs, Democracy will triumph as it has for centuries. So too, my fellow Americans who was shocked and appalled by the images on their televisions, too. Day and who are worried about the future of this country? Let me speak to you directly. The divisions in our country clearly run deep. But we are a resilient forward looking and optimistic people and we will begin the hard work of preparing this nation tonight. Because here in America, we do hard things in America we always overcome. Challenges yield the floor.

"Majority Leader Mitch McConnell cheering progress indeed, bipartisan negotiations on a new coronavirus relief package today, the Kentucky Republican said things could still fall apart. Is working. The bill could head into the weekend yesterday saw the highest number of coronavirus cases, deaths and hospitalizations in America. Data from Johns Hopkins University shows there were over 247,000 new cases more than 3600 cover 19 related deaths and over 113,000 Americans in the hospital being treated for that virus. Companies time 11 16 First time jobless claims are rising. The Labor Department reporting there are about 885,000 claims made last week. Analysts were expecting that number to be about 810,000 with a look at these numbers. I'm joined by Mark Hamrick, senior economic analyst for bankrate dot com. I'd say Happy holidays Martin not push to be happy about after we look at these numbers today. Well, I think we can all find reasons to feel sense of gratitude. Perhaps that we are healthy and safe. You're right. Certainly from these numbers, discouraging. I think we're now up in for the past five weeks with respect the new jobless claims, Tom as I look at the state of Washington, we did see a decline here. 5200 new claims still elevated 20,000 claims so You know, I think that we're just sort of in this both economic and pandemic purgatory right now, And we know that we will get to that better place once the vaccines are administered, But this is gonna be a long wait. And so this is why I think that we're continuing to see heavy pressure being exerted on our elected officials to get another round of believe legislation completed and they seem to be moving toward that, But even as they do it still, by the time it is all put into, you know, practical effect is gonna be weeks more before anybody gets any real relief, right? Well, I remember complaint that my teacher had about me in the second grade was I wasn't fulfilling my full potential on do I feel like this is absolutely the case with members of Congress. You know it's 265 days. Tom Since President Sinus accident wasn't long after that, that we start to worry about the exploration of programs in July, Okay? On glee know that you know, more than 10 million Americans. They're gonna face the prospect of losing their unemployment benefits in the coming days. But good news, I think is that it does appear that Senate majority Leader McConnell is basically saying We're not leaving here until we get this done. So he feels a sense of urgency, even if it's all too late in coming well, and you point out that a Zafar as you could tell members of Congress on everyone that has been kind of dragging their feet on. This have never had to worry about food banks or food stamps to feed themselves are putting the food on the table, so it's perhaps hard for them to realize. From the perspective of someone going through this what It's like. No, The only prospect of unemployment they have is when their terms air up in. Some people have already made that decision of the voting booth or virtual voting booth here a few weeks ago, but Um, you know, it's probably long, virtually tar and feather all of them, but but nevertheless, you know, I think they're great it on results, not just a stance and we need the results, and that's why they're set. Not far from where I'm sitting here outside the nation's capital, All right, and Fed chair Jerome Powell said that the central bank is ready to do whatever they need to do. But what can they do? Well, you know, I think he has been his vocal as a Federal reserve chair can be in the sense of urging these folks to move forward. As he said yesterday is a very, very strong case for this legislation. And you know, he can only do so much. I mean, they've talked about the things that they can do. We won't get into that right now. They've already pushed Interest rates to record low levels. Low interest rates. Don't put food on the table. Don't help people pay wraps. We need the lawmakers to take the next action. All right, Mark. Thanks So much for your analysis, as always, once again from bankrate dot com. That's senior economic analyst Mark Hamrick.
