"This this was over the top next their heavensent could earn. President will wear perfume and pearls be diplomatic in the love and glory. Leave it on the grass is Laurie. How do you make sense of this? Why is she doing this? And she always claimed their biggest handicaps were the ones she went in with and spotlighted no money organization and everything but her biggest handicap was her sex. That was the bottom line. Margaret Chase Smith went on to serve another decade in the Senate. She was in Congress for thirty three years and she lived to be ninety seven. Janine Sherman moved to Maine to get to know her to try to understand her. I you know. I spent six seven years in conversation with her hoping that once we got to know each other I would get some introspection and in the end there was one important question. She could never get Margaret Chase Smith to answer. She denied ambition at all until the day she died. She denied ever wanting any of this. This whole ambition. Thing is a real conundrum especially for women and especially in that time period. We're not only. Doesn't she own up to her own ambition? I don't think she could even recognize it herself through so bound by those gender conventions that a woman is not ambitious but she does step up to help when people ask and that was always the way she described everything including running for president this.

"Be impeached for that has resisted at every turn turning over documents allowing people testify they have prevented investigations prevented testimony from the House Democrats and now if there is an impeachment inquiry there will be significant demands for I don't know if they'll be demand for tax returns but they'll be demands that that officials Israel's testify and the documents turned over and so far this administration's refused to do it. How do you think that might play I mean are they going to continue to hide everything behind this national all security cloak will they get away with it is the Supreme Court going to involve itself with the Supreme Court ever ever give the congress benefit of the doubt here. What do you think I mean. I assume going to continue to play out the way that has played out in the administration's going to make things as difficult as possible and when they do testify it'll be the way day. Corey Lewandowski testified where it just turns it into a circus and and it makes it look like a partisan event. That's the risk of of impeachment of an impeachment inquiry is that it just does that. The trump people do what they always do. which is they turn everything into a circus into the chaos mm-hmm and make it seem more partisan than it is like? I'M NOT SAYING DEMOCRATS AREN'T ACTING OUT OF PARTISAN interests but I do think that there is a sincere concern about this and I really do believe any person who's just being objective and stepping back and looking at this and being honest and checking their you know Republican credentials at the door. You know this is something that has to be dealt with. This is something that has to be addressed. This cannot be something there's normalized and that we now say presidents can do these kinds of things. John Many give you the last question on this. which is do you think there is any way this investigation this impeachment inquiry can be carried out that will will be not entirely partisan? I not unless and based on based on the the the the early questioning of DNA MCGUIRE. It looks like a it's everybody's playing type and so the answer. Your question is now it'll be. It'll be totally partisan. I do. I do think again with just everybody has to wait for. Whether there will be any charismatic dissenters you know the role that Margaret Chase Smith the played or that Barry Goldwater played or this you Scott played during the the Watergate era where you had Republican senators again as you pointed out before not only is there a is there a media arm that didn't exist with Nixon but you also have the parties have gotten a lot more polarized and a lot more conservative than they used to be and so structurally you don't even have really moderate Republicans in any kind of possible way and you also don't have kind of break from the mold conservatives that the way you had with with Goldwater. Some people say that's a good thing with respect civil rights act but also with respect to Nixon. It's tape push the impeachment thing along so I think the only way that it wouldn't go to its normal partisan. sorting is if you have some Republicans not you know of some stature say this is real. This is serious and and we'll have to see.

"So Senator Margaret chase Smith who was the first woman to serve in both houses of congress delivered her powerful declaration of conscience speech on June. First eighteen fifty four months after McCarthy's wheeling speech in it. She criticised national leadership and called for the country, the US Senate and the Republican party to reexamine the tactics used by the H U A C and without naming him. Senator McCarthy Smith was a Republican Senator from Maine one line from the speech that fricken love was Smith said she didn't wanna see her party quote ride to political victory on the four horsemen of calumny, fear, ignorance bigotry and smear.

Power and self determination. That was typical of the way which he spoke hate this guy. He can't even come up with a good burn. That's just. He's so. By the way in fifty two. I give you a quiz on famous speeches. You should know add this to the list in your head. I did very poorly on that Quist, by the way. So, but you would get them. Now. I would maybe who knows.

"Example we should talk about is Margaret chase Smith who in nineteen fifty during the McCarthy very early lays out in a speech called, the declaration of conscience the exact argument against Joe McCarthy she got six cosigners McCarthy. Dismissed them as Snow White in, the sixth dwarves and yet within four years the whole. Senate had, joined her you, want to be Margaret chase Smith. You, don't want to be a quisling on this and I just think it's I think I I guess? The older I get the. More I think the simpler explanations. Tend to have the most salience I think they're afraid of him and if they're not afraid of him they're afraid, of an increasingly. Tribal and closed base of. Support that is easy to command at this point because suggest. Something else here has has a news analysts have seen time, and again with this group of Republicans they like what they get, out of him they get, justices on the. Supreme court they're very happy with in terms of nominees get tax cut. Or tax reform whatever you wanna call it more call tax reform in other words they get. The goodies that they have been after for years that was they. They did in facts sell their. Soul and the what did they get your right, they got a tax Bill they've gotten a lot of, deregulation they've gotten a rising market. And they've gotten to supreme court Justice. And they've done rid of a lot of regulations. Particularly environmental regulation go to, more calls here Let me do. This with Susannah Susannah welcome Thank. You Mr. Meacham. Thank you for your, reason perspective I'm concerned about what's happening. With truth Philosophical concept true, says the practice and lying without consequences How does lying affected political? Discourse and what can we do to bring back defy. It is a marvelous question and you're you're exactly right it's, it's one. Of the most pernicious developments, in recent years long-term process it didn't start with Trump but. As with so much, else he, accelerated and exacerbated it. And so the, internet of course so does the. Internet, but you know I'm a skeptic on The. Uniqueness of that moment we had a partisan press in this country newspapers that aggregated clipped stuff from other, papers and put it out for? For well over a hundred years the issue of course which is a good counterpoint? To that is that's the way the press was in. The eighteen fifties and look how that decade turned out so, it's it's. It isn't we do have, these echo chambers we do have, this capacity for disinformation misinformation. To fly around the, most interesting, part of that question, is what do, we do about it And this is self referential and so forgive me but I just. Think you, have to keep reminding people as John, Adams said, that facts are stubborn things I was with a. Very high ranking Republican not long ago who had clearly sort. Of half remembered talking, point, about the Merrick garland situation and. Was claiming that in the nineteen, sixty eight Abe Fortas in, Johnston wanted. To make chief Justice that, the Democrats had stopped, that from coming to a. Vote which is just not true on almost any, level a, fordis- didn't become chief Justice because of some personal corruption charges picky relations and things of. That so, yeah and, he was on the tape from but anyway but the point is that there was a vote there was a process and it just was. Not the case, and this. Man say well that wasn't true. And sixty eight now that and I was thinking why did I say yes it was and we we, did again but I thought I Why, was that, why did he say the second time and that's. The that was a cable news trick it was just a. Leave people who might, actually, be living normal life as opposed. To me with the wall well, he said it twice so, it must. Be the, case what we, have to do is What we're now in a culture of is twenty four seven fact checking. And hope that it all will. Out let. Me thanks for the. Call and let me read a tweet to you from bardo says House. Mr Meacham feel? About the international aspect of Trump's authoritarianism? That is what I find new and ominous money.
