"At the moment right across the board, more or less except for Tokyo, a number of factors at play the strong U.S. jobs report may lead some investors to fear higher U.S. rates for longer. The dollar did strengthen significantly. The Bloomberg galaxy index was up more than 1% on Friday and up a quarter of a percent this morning and the downing of the Chinese balloon by the U.S. raises the risk of higher U.S. China tensions. Some quick numbers that cost be down 1.3%, the ASX 200 down about a tenth of 1% and that strength in the dollar and weakness in the yen is helping Tokyo move a little bit forward to the nikkei has advanced about 8 tenths of 1%. The nikkei Asian review reports that the Japan government had approached the BOJ deputy governor masayoshi amamiya about succeeding Hari hika kuroda as governor investors assuming that means no real change in policy. The dollar yen rate won 32 14, WTI could 70 $73 and 53 cents a barrel. And that is a check of markets. Let's get to the headlines with head Baxter in San Francisco. All right, thank you, Brian Hong Kong's biggest security trial today to set the start. It is a mass trial of 47 prominent pro democracy advocates. The prosecution of so many at one time has definitely caught the attention of the new security law could impact the future of the region as a global economic hub and we'll watch reaction. China's reaction over the shooting down of its alleged spy balloon has shifted to threaten retaliation. The downing of it is marking the first time that the F-22 raptor fighter jet brought down an air target since it debuted in combat and sherry and Iraq almost a decade. U.S. senator Marco Rubio questioning the delay in shooting down the balloon, former joint chiefs of staff chair Mike Mullen says the timing was exactly correct, could have caused major damage on the ground. The U.S. is being very careful to say that it has postponed the meeting with Xi Jinping. There are very careful to say not canceled. Ukraine says it can end the war if it gets more fighter jets to patrol and protect its borders. The hackers behind the recent ransomware attack on I am trading UK claim the extortion payment has been paid. Cyber specialists say it will take some time to get the system fully back up. Global news powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts, number 120 countries in San Francisco. I met Baxter. This is Bloomberg Douglas. Thank you, Eddie well, OPEC plus has been a little wary over adding additional supply to the market because of uncertain demand, but now there are indications early ones at that of an improved outlook given a stronger than expected rebound in China. That seems to be the view of fatigue. He is ahead of the international energy agency. He spoke earlier with Bloomberg's manaka doshi. I think we have already seen the first press cap and crude crisis. And we have not seen a major challenge in terms of the availability of oil and in terms of the markets, we didn't see any disruption. But what it meant is that when we look at the Russian oil and gas export revenues, one year, just before the war, and now end of January this year, Russian oil

"About to power on Bloomberg television and radio. I'm David Watson. Well, considering we're only I think a couple of days away from a recess, there's an awful lot going on on Capitol Hill right now. Of course, we have president zelensky coming in and also they're still working on that omnibus spending bill to take us out through exactly what Congress is up to. We welcome now Republican senator Mike Braun of Indiana. So senator, always great to have you with us. Let me first start with president zelensky who's going to be appearing. It will be historic in many respects. You have a leader in Europe under siege in a war addressing the joint Congress. What will you be listening for? What might make a difference in your mind? You know, I think he's made his message Claire and mostly through performance. When you look at what he's up against, his country has been pounded by an international thug that I think will go down in the history of some of the worst in the business and I think he's done an amazing job. I think he's going to want to bolster the case. It's going to be a long-term engagement. And I think he also knows the political wins have shifted a bit. So I've never had any issue with who we should be supporting. I do have some issue with the fact that I wish the EU would be putting more effort into their own backyard. If you look at a little bit of the finance side of it, I think we've spent somewhere in the 60 to 70 billion range so far committing to another 45 billion. I think Russia's entire defense budget annually is around 75 to 80 billion. So it's important, I think Putin needs to know that this is not going to work in the long run. I wish the EU would engage, pick up a little more of what's in their own backyard and this gets in a way kind of relevant to what we're dealing with currently on our financial situation here in the federal government. I've been here four years, David, and we were 18 trillion when I got here. We're now 31 trillion. And it doesn't look like anybody's taken seriously. What peril that puts us in, defense is the most important thing we do in the federal government, even admiral Mike Mullen years ago, said sometimes I fear the red ink more than the red menace and all of this and borrowing 2025% of our annual budget. It's not a good business plan to be strong on defense to help our allies in the long run, let alone what we need to do to keep our own economy healthy. So senator ever since we've been talking, you've been fighting that good fight. Do you feel like you've made any progress from being in Washington as a result of it? You know, sometimes you feel like, as we say back home, you're talking to the side of your barn, I do think you do make an impression over time. We now have a group of 7, 8, or 9 of us, when I got here, it was just three of us that really put this as the most important long-term issue that doesn't have the current palpability, the current pain associated with what running now, $1.5 trillion annual deficits will have in the long run. I ask a group of reporters the other day. Do you know what 1% of 30 trillion is? That's such a big number. If you took a lower denomination, it'd be easy. That's $300 billion. And four percentage points, 400 basis points, and current interest rates going up with short term maturity on a lot of what we borrow, you know, we're going to soon be crowding out almost everything else in our budget if we don't get this under control. And the fact we do no budgets, I'm an appropriator. We have not met once in the last year. As a group about what we're going to have in this bill, very bad way to run the biggest business in the world. So Indiana is a pretty big business itself. And I understand you're interested in going back and running that business at the federal government. Do you have hopes that you actually be able to get your arms around that in a way that you just can't with the federal budget? Well, number one, we don't have a printing press in the basement. And we've got the best Bond rating. I think of any state in the country. You don't have that. If you're trying to finance a 20 to now 25% deficit, we got a balanced budget amendment that keeps us on the rails. I think we need in the four years I've been here more than ever, a balanced budget amendment and term limits. I think if we had term limits, you'd get more people here that have actually run something, especially when you look at the results, we produced really since the two wars in the early 2000s. We put that on the credit card. I think the Obama administration said you do that. We're going to get our fair share of domestic. David, it's the unholy reliance. The quid pro quo that's taken us onto a course of disaster financially. And especially when you're doing it on the backs of your kids and grandkids in terms of borrowing all that money. Before we let you go, let me ask about one issue that's really front and center. In addition to all the others right now, that's immigration across that southern border. As we're looking at title 42 exemption about to go away, it appears. So why can't we get to a sensible approach? And how important is that to the people in Indiana? When you go back home, how concerned are they about the immigration issue? Indiana is the biggest manufacturing state per CAPiTA. And it comes into play there. But we are also a big agriculture state per CAPiTA. And there are places like dairy farms, turkey farms, places where you literally can not get help and we need more legal immigration. But that's never going to happen in the way that we need to do it comprehensively until you secure the border. Ironically, as hot as things are politically around here, that was working under the Trump administration. And I don't think we should reflexively just be against some of those things. We've got to get back to where we secure the border. And I make a broad spectrum of Congress would be for comprehensive immigration reform and start with the low hanging fruit first, but as long as we have an unsecured border, I'm afraid it's going to be caught in the political crossfire and we're not going to do either one correctly. Okay, senator, it's always great to talk to you. I hope you get out of there at some point, get back to Indiana, celebrate the holidays. I'm with you there. Thank you so much, senator Mike Brown, Republican of Indiana. Still to come, we're going to talk with the mainstay of the D.C. bar. He's John Bellinger of Arnold Porter about the loss surrounding the congressional recommendation

"Bloomberg quick take. This is Bloomberg radio. The former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff says President Biden needs to back off the Armageddon talk, appearing on ABC's this week, retired navy admiral Mike Mullen, called Biden's comments the top of the language scale, and something the U.S. should avoid in hopes of getting Russia to the negotiating table. He went on to say that Russian president Putin is pretty cornered and boxed in, but noted Moscow would be risking a lot by using tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine. Mullin added the war has got to end, and it usually happens through negotiations. We all make mistakes. That's what congressman Don bacon had to say about the embattled U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker, appearing on NBC's meet the press, the Nebraska Republican defended his GOP colleague over allegations at walker had paid for a former girlfriend to have an abortion in 2009, when he spent strictly anti abortion in his campaign. Georgia's lieutenant governor Jeff Duncan says things aren't looking good for walker. I think this is part of the Donald Trump hangover. This is a horrible place for us to be, not just here in Georgia, but in other parts of the country, this should be a lay up for us in the House and the Senate. For the first time Friday, walker confirmed the identity of the woman who is also the mother of one of his four children, he denies her story. Jury selection set to get underway Monday and locked up former film producer Harvey Weinstein's California trial on sex assault charges. The 70 year old has already been convicted of rape in New York, and sentenced to more than two decades in prison. However, a judge over the summer ruled that his appeal in that case can go forward. That means more attention will be paid to the LA trial, now that it's no longer seen as largely symbolic and could ultimately decide Weinstein's fate should he succeed in his appeal in New York.

"The Pepperdine Graduate School of Public Policy. Fox News journalist and news anchor Chris Wallace as a timely book out titled Countdown Bin Laden. The Untold Story of the 24 Day Hunt to bring the mastermind of 9 11 to justice. It landed in bookstores just days before the 20th anniversary of 9 11. And not a week after the collapse of the American effort in Afghanistan. Chris Wallace joined me on the show you time this obviously for the 20th anniversary of 9 11, not knowing that it would also be The ongoing defeat and rolling evacuation from Afghanistan of America. What has that done to your plans to talk about the book and your book tour? Well, not not nothing really. And in fact, I think it's probably made it more topical. I mean, I always knew that the 20th anniversary of 9 11 was a good hook if you will publishing a book. I think that there's obviously a lot more focused on Afghanistan now than there would have been. And you know, quite frankly, the idea that the people who were in charge of Afghanistan on 9 11 when almost 3000 of our fellow Americans were killed Are back in charge of it today. That is a very raw subject with a lot of people what I got, you know, they're obviously I have different thoughts because of that, and one of them is As badly as it ended and as badly as I think most Americans feel about the execution of the way we got out. I think this point this book points out two things you and one is We accomplished a lot. We did a lot in those 20 years. And the most important thing is what we set out to do in the first place, which was to kill them laden to have them 9 11 to degrade. Afghanistan, the Al Qaeda in Afghanistan and you know to protect the homeland, and the fact is there was not another major attack coming from Afghanistan and these 20 years, So that's that's a lot. And the second thing. I just think it's a case study because it's badly handles as the evacuation and the withdrawal was in these last few weeks, the bin Laden the CIA. Might finding the compound the deliberations going on inside the White House and meticulous planning by the seals and the special forces. You know, as a case study of how well does country can do when all of the military all of the communities and the government Work together. And I want to go to page 1 92 the stress of not knowing what's getting to McRaven. Maybe by the end of today's meeting, and this is on April 19th of 2011 12 days to go before The mission Every heavyweight in the administration. Panetta Gates Clinton Biden, Mullen would be there, too, and all the top military brass there were some great minds among them, and McRaven didn't want to be blindsided. I believe that's the first time that Joe Biden is mentioned. And I believe the only other time he has a substantive comment in here is on page 2 11, where he says he doesn't really want to go ahead because he'd be more comfortable with more information. He generally the dog that doesn't park Gates doesn't want to do the mission. He changes his mind. Panetta's always in favor of the mission. Mullins in favor of the mission. Did you find it impossible to pin down the Joe Biden story? Tony Blinken is in there on page 23 opposed to the mission early on, but generally they're not there. No. And I've got to tell you. I mean, the fact is as I went through this story, and I interviewed as you say, Gates and Panetta and McRaven and the fields go by the same barely came up. It wasn't a player in this whole thing. You know the one time that as you say he kind of ways in as April 28. The president is going around the tables in the in the situation room. All right. What's your final recommendations? He goes first because he's too frightened the vice president. The Biden and Biden says. I don't think we have enough information and I think there's too much of a danger that we're going to ruin our relations with Pakistan, and we rely on them to get supplies into our forces in Afghanistan. And then they move on and gates as you say, is against it, and everybody else is for it. And that's it. And on the way back to the Pentagon, Robert Gates, the secretary of defense, and Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs are in the car together being driven back. And Gates as he did in his memoir Killed. Biden has been wrong about every major foreign policy decision in the last 40 years, and Mullins had heard that and he tweaks Gates and says You know, you say that he's wrong about every form. Apologies decision, And yet you're with him on this one. So there wasn't a lot of respect for Joe Biden inside the inner councils of the Obama White House during all of this and and one of the other things I'd say, and it's frankly it's what excites me most about the book. I hope you felt this Is. It's a thriller that, you know. Yes, we all know how it ends. But we take you inside the room when Panetta first learns about the compound, and when they're debating what to do in the situation room and on the helicopter and the way to Bottom body. So I promise you the last 100 pages. You're on the edge.

"Would we have leadership that would have the intestinal fortitude to make those decisions. Today you take a look in the Infamous in hindsight. Vote against going after bin Laden that day, none other than then Vice President Joe Biden and and lead to Robert Gates in his memoir, You know, saying that Joe Biden's been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy National security decision for the past 40 years. We take a look at that level of decision making today Do you think that it's fair to draw critical lines between his lack of willingness? That particular day and some of that? We see playing out. Yeah, I do. But in fact, a story that is revealed for the first time in the book, so Gates was not shy about saying bad things even when Biden was vice president in the Obama administration. And he had said this on his colleagues. This guy's been wrong about every major foreign policy decision. So when they have the key meeting on April, 28th and Obama goes around the table, what do you think? And Biden says no. And Gates says now No. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs says Yes. Go on the way back to the Pentagon. Uh, Mullen turns to Gates and says, Hey, I thought you said that Biden had been wrong about every major decision in 40 years. You just voted alongside him not to go so This was kind of a and an open secret and something of a joke inside the administration, and you know what it is, It is what it is. The fact is that Biden Gates with the two people who said Don't Launched the right everybody else. Hillary Clinton Leon Panetta, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, the national security adviser, and obviously in the end, the president all said it's worth taking the chance. Legendary journalist.

"So if you say Well, the Taliban is not letting them out. But they well know that paperwork because they don't want to make it seem that way. Because I think they think that will inflame and escalate the situation to make it harder to get people out. But I agree with you. This is still a big story. Americans 100 or so Americans can't get out. Thousands of our Afghan allies can't get out the terrorist threat increasing And you know, just because you don't put it on the air. It's not going away a couple of things. I think it's totally getting under reported and I am surprised. I continue will be surprised is that this these phone calls not only with the president, but Mark Milley when they both tell Jahani changed the perception. Even if it's not the case change the perception and Jahani said Specifically, there are 10 to 15,000 terrorists coming through Pakistan supported by Pakistan. I need air cover. And they tell them change the perception and yet they want to turn around, say no one thought the army was going to fall like that. They haven't won a single battle in any province. They put it. They did not put up a fight. And Kabul falls like paper, mache A. And if you listen to the if you read the transcript of the calls that Reuters God They had to have expected that And if Joe Biden didn't the man that's been wearing a uniform, and, uh and camouflage for 50 years, Mark Milley He should give up his bars if he can't assess that the Taliban was about to take over and the Afghan army was about to fall apart. Well, I'm going to defend Millie and I'm not going to defend bite, but I'll defend Millie. To this extent they have a meeting in the situation room in April of 2021 now and you know that Trump had set the deadline of May 1st. They know that that's unrealistic. They can't get out that zone. But does it is, what are we going to do? And Millie says We need 2500 to 5000 troops there. We can keep Bagram. We can provide air cover. We can you know we can. We can keep the troops the Afghan security forces. In control. They're not going to melt away and Biden overrules and basically says, Look, we're going to get out. We're going to go to zero. First, he says. By September, 11th and he says by August 31st, I want you to get down and forget Bob Graham. The only thing you're in charge of is getting people out from Kabul airport downtown. And the embassy. So in fairness to Millie You know when when they say well, he said. You know, Biden's as well. They didn't told us. We shouldn't go back to Bagram. He couldn't go back to Bagram because he was following the president's orders with the amount of troops that Biden gave him to have. He didn't have any choices and, you know, so he's he's the general, the commander in chief tells them you have to do certain things. With a certain number of troops. It really tied his hands, so I put this all on Biden. In a way. I know that and I know that situation, he said. If you're only gonna give me 600 troops is what I'm going to need, he said. I'm going to need feel like basically 5000 or 10,000 order to retake Bagram, he told Jennifer Griffin. Fine. You put 5000 into the airport in a week. You could have put 10,000 on the ground because you tell the president that we could have thousands of Americans trapped behind enemy lines. Because Mr President, the Afghan army is not getting supported the beginning to melt away. They have not fought for any province to this date with. There's no guarantee the carbon will stand and when he talked to Jahani Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said, change the perception and the optics that is not what a would a military man should be telling the leader of a country and then turn around and tell the American people. No one predicted they would fall this fast final thought. Well, I would just say, you know, in in the book down bin Laden, one of the two people who says don't do the raid when they have their final meeting on April 28th. Is Joe Biden and the other is Bob Gates, the secretary of defense and Gates had made it pretty clear for a long period of time. He didn't think much of Biden you know how we set in his memoir. You have been wrong about everything for 40 years. He had said that so he's going back to the Pentagon. After this meeting with the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Mark, Mark Mullen, Mike Mullen, and Mullen says to him. Hey, you say he's been wrong about everything for 40 years. You just voted with him not to go on the raid, so it was kind of an open secret in an open joke. What? Bob Gates brought Joe Biden. I'm up against it. But with Who? Your guests. I hear you get signed up. Well, we were going to be talking about Afghanistan on the 9 11, and we have an exclusive interview.

"Morning, Joined by Fox News host Fox News Sunday. Chris Wallace. Good morning, Chris. How are you? I'm great. Thank you so much for having me on you. Well, congratulations on publication day for countdown bin Laden. I'm holding it up for my YouTube audience. I have got countdown bin Laden in my hand. It's the advanced readers Edition. Which means it doesn't have an index so I couldn't do the Washington. I actually had to read it, Chris. So this will be an unusual interview for you. I know often on a book tour, you'll run into host who haven't read it, but I've read it. So I want you to know that at the beginning Um You time this obviously for the 20th anniversary of 9 11 not knowing that it would also be the ongoing defeat and rolling evacuation from Afghanistan of America. What has that done to your plans to talk about the book and your book tour? Well, not not nothing, really. And in fact, I think has probably made it more topical. I mean, I always knew that the 20th anniversary of 9 11 was a good hook if you will for for Publishing a book, but I think that there's obviously a lot more focus on Afghanistan now than there would have been and you know, quite frankly, the idea that the people Were in charge of Afghanistan on 9 11 when almost 3000 of our fellow Americans were killed are back in charge of it today and and the way we got out, I mean, that's that's Is a very raw subject with a lot of people what I got, you know, they're obviously I have different thoughts because of that, and one of them is as badly as it ended. And as badly as I think most Americans feel about The execution of the way we got out. I think this point this book points out two things you and one is we accomplished a lot. We did a lot in those 20 years. And the most important thing is what we set out to do in the first place, which was To kill bin Laden to avenge 9 11 to degrade Afghanistan, the Al Qaeda in Afghanistan and you know to protect the homeland, and the fact is there was not another major attack coming from Afghanistan in these 20 years, So that's that's a lot And the second thing I I just think it's a case study because it's badly handled as the evacuation and the and the withdrawal was in these last few weeks. The bin Laden, the CIA, a finding the compound the deliberations going on inside the White House and meticulous planning by the seals and the special forces. You know, as a case study of how well this country can do When all of the military all of the communities and the government work together, So you know, in a story that ends badly. This is a highlight. I've interviewed a lot of the people that you did obviously have not talked to Secretary of defense. Panetta, who was CIA director at the time, but Admiral McRaven has been a guest Mike Morrell has been against when his wonderful book came out. I've been just a lot of people that I crossed paths with. But the most interesting thing to me about countdown bin Laden Chris Wallace is the dog doesn't bark and I want to go to page 1 92. The stress of not knowing was getting too McRaven. Maybe by the end of today's meeting, and this is on April 19th of 2011 12 days to go before The mission. He'd have an answer. In any case, he had to be perfectly prepared, able to answer every question not only from President Obama, but from anyone else in the situation room every heavyweight in the administration. Panetta, Gates, Clinton Biden Mullen would be there, too. And all the top military brass. There were some great minds among them, and McRaven didn't want to be blindsided again. I don't have the final book. I've got the readers copies, so there's no index I believe That's the first time that Joe Biden is mentioned, and I believe the only other time he has a substantive comment in here is on page 2 11, where he says he doesn't really want to go ahead because he'd be more comfortable with more information. He's generally the dog that doesn't bark, the president of the United States. I mean, everybody else is in here again and again. I mean, Gates doesn't want to do the mission. He changes his mind. Panetta is always in favor of the mission. Mullins in favor of the mission. Did you find it impossible to pin down the Joe Biden story? Tony Blinken is in there on page 23 opposed to the mission early on, but generally they're not there. No. And I've got to tell you. I mean, you're there's a reason you're Hugh Hewitt. You're very perceptive reader. And the fact is, as I went through that this story, and I interviewed as you say, Gates and Panetta and McRaven and The fields and, uh Hillary Clinton, Uh, Go by the same barely came up. It wasn't a player in this whole thing and You know the one time that as you say he kind of ways in as you know. April 28. The president is going around the tables in the in the situation room. All right. What's your final recommendations? He goes first because he's too frightened. He's the vice president. Biden and Biden says. I don't think we have enough information and I think it's too much of a danger that we're going to ruin our relations with Pakistan, and we rely on them to get supplies into our forces in Afghanistan. And then they move on and gates as you say, is against it, and everybody else is for it. And that's it, And there's another struggle has never been told before, which is that on the way back to the Pentagon, Robert Gates, the secretary of defense Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs are in the car together being driven back, and Gates as he did in his memoir, had apparently said a lot of times two people. Joe Biden has been wrong about every major foreign policy decision in the last 40 years. And.

"Like the fact that this conversation has been and we've been able to make this conversation about white kids on my parents for me. There are a little bit less important than like the black and brown kids who just going to grow up confused totally confused. These white kids are going to be fine. These white kids have access to google and tiktok and they're seeing this stuff anyway. These conversations happen anyway. I'm worried about the and brown kids. Who were still told. The civil war was about states rights or were never told the actual history of made up people in this country like their confusion is more important to me than their these white parents discomfort. Sam one more question on this. There's also this aspect in which this is kind of role reversal where we've spent a lot of time. Having republicans use the military as a cudgel against democrats. And this seems like it's the reverse of that. What's your what's your reaction to how that's been playing out. I think it speaks to a larger issue of the way that the entire country conceptualize is the military period. We see it as distinguished wightman drawn leaders like millie who talk that way. Where all the badges. When it actuality a large swath of the military is black and brown working class people many of them women many of them queer. I grew up in san antonio texas and when i was a kid san antonio had about five military bases just in the city and i both high schools i went to or a few miles down the road from randolph air force base and by virtue of my public school being next to an air force base it was the most integrated school at ever gone to in my life. It was about a third white about the third black about a third hispanic. It was a totally integrated society that was of its proximity to the military. And so when. I see these fights over millie. What milly means for the military. I think we have to expand the conversation and say the military was never those white guys at the top. The military is an incredibly working class and in many cases diverse institution. And when you hear from those voices all of them holistically up and down the chain mark milley's comments don't seem out of place right. We're look like we have allowed ourselves to believe another white fantasy about what the military is. And it's never just that it's never been just those white guys fighting our wars. I also think that. Like you know the the laura ingraham's of the world the tucker carlson. They know the power of that. Billy speech trade like their communicators their partisans propagandists and you can look back and pretty. Recent history at comments made by admiral. Mike mullen the previous chairman of the joint chiefs about the need to get rid of. Don't ask don't tell. And the impact that those comments had on moving the debate forward and removing this horrendous rule or law or whatever was getting rid of the stigma right and i think it was interesting and notable to me that lloyd austin who is the secretary of defense African american didn't necessarily seem like he felt like he had the same space to go on this soapbox the way millie did but frankly like we needed to hear it from millie right like he is the sort of i think the kind of messenger who Normally would convince fox news audience and so they saw him as a threat and they went after him as hard as they could in the most personal terms and they did it immediately. It's the elvis effect. You can have all these black sing their songs and they sound great. And that's not a hit until elvis covers it and it's and it's just like it happens in every space in every way all the time and again to get back to my industry we capital j. journalists the media have to fight that tendency to focus on the kind of voices that we think are from central casting.

That's him behind President Obama in the White House as they watched the Navy seals descend on bin Laden is compound in real time. There was a lot of risk. We felt comfortable that we could get in and out of Pakistan without being detected in a timely way. We felt we could get into the compound. And for Mullen, it was personal. He was in the Pentagon a decade earlier, when one of the hijacked planes slammed into it. The plane flew in under Basically under my office, My two assistants looked out the window and saw 7 57 fly in under their feet.

We're going to talk heavy metal and we're going to rank all the metallica albums. Michael wanted to do a show. Only on metallica. Thomas wisely talked me out of that and then delegate rome. I saw your bill and panic defense which is fascinating. So let's start with that now for our listeners. Who want to hear about metallica. Stick around for segment. Three of the podcast. And i promise you. We're gonna talk about all of the metallica albums later. But we're going to start with house. Bill twenty one thirty two bill that you introduced delegate rome to abolish the panic defense in virginia now i can hear many listeners. Sort of thinking to themselves panic defense. What the heck is that they'll get. What is the panic defense. And how did this bill about right. So i'll answer that second question first and then we'll get back to the verse so the bill actually came as an idea from one of my constituents manassas park. Who's a student who's out who sent me an email on during the summer point twenty base saying hey Could you please bill to do this because this is horrible. And as for just talking about what the Defense actually does basically what what happens is that someone will use your sexual orientation or gender identity as the vocation for why they attacked you in a heat of passion rage and then not only that what they'll say provoked them to attack you but that it excuses their attack and so rather than deem it with malicious intent aka murder. They will say that it was more or less accidental. I was in a fit of rage. Because i couldn't possibly help myself. You would understand if you were in my shoes to you. In which they can get their sentences reduced or they can be sentenced for manslaughter instead of murder to charge. And since the most high-profile hayes happens to be matthew. Shepard a think that resonates in people's minds so much and that if you can understand the horror of the torture that poor soul endured in that role area in laramie wyoming when he was pistol whipped drug out to a fence post tied up and left to die. It's just what was this crime. It was for existing as a gay man in rural wyoming. You know in court. The murderers of matthew. Shepard tried to argue that the reason they committed the crime was the sexual orientation of the victim. this is sort of classic blaming the victim. Now what are the people supporting your bill. Delegate rome is judy. Shepard the mother of matthew shepard and the founder of the matthew shepard foundation. She testified in favor of your bill when it was before the criminal subcommittee of the courts of justice and here is a bit of her testimony. Panic defense relies on a stigma stigmas particular to the lgbtq people to justify horrific violence against lgbtq plus individuals when a perpetrator uses the lgbtq plus panic defense there are claiming that the victim sexual orientation gender identity or expression not only explains excuses the loss of self control and subsequent violent assault or murder under the lgbtq plus panic defense hate crime victims very identity simultaneously becomes the reason they're murder and the exoneration of their murderer. Now she finished testifying the chairman of the subcommittee delegate. Mike mullins said this was some of the most powerful testimony he's ever heard in his career. Delegate rome was it like for you to hear judy. Shepard testifying in support of your bill. Well you know in the run-up to You know that testimony. We heard about a week and half two weeks ahead of time that she was going to be willing to testify and tom. I told the subcommittee chairman. Mike mullen who is also the chief co patrons of bill by the way as like just say no on we got you know we have judy. Shepard testifying in his reaction would just allow. And i was like. It's quite possible that there's not going to be dry in the room so just just so we understand that when you do have someone of the caliber to shepherd. Who is you know testifying for bill in virginia. It should speak to the volume of importance. About what this means and why this is important at that point just to use another journalism axios. We always say you know show. Don't tell well. I don't have to tell you that bills important junie. Shepherd is speaking in figurative. It that should tell you everything you know. I wasn't necessarily planning to make an announcement but since the shepherd foundation is ben in vote. I should probably disclosed that. As of this past week my own firm resolute strategies group just signed the former matthew shepard foundation. Ceo jason marsden to our firm so we're expanding our footprint and he brings a lot to the table but breaking news and a disclosure so anyway delegate rome your bill had many people testify in favour including the office of attorney general mark herring the commonwealth's attorney for prince william county and the national. Lgbt bar association but it also has some critics. Doug ram sir at the virginia association of criminal. Defense lawyers said categorical bans on potential. Defenses are not good way to protect the lgbtq plus community.

We've not aware of example. Virginia where this has become a problem. What do you make of those. Two arguments danika. It hasn't happened here. And it's generally a bad idea to take any legal defense off the table does this infringe on defendants ability to mount a defense number. One noah dozen number two. it has happened in virginia. And when i was in subcommittee i was really out. The list of veto cities were just based on my own team's research we found whether norfolk are williamsburg hampshire just like hit trust. It happens in virginia. I wanted brought the bill ford if you know. This was not a problem. Virginia and the third part on this about you know. Is it a bad idea to take any legal defense off the table. Well we already do. Take a legal defense off the table with bribery. You can't say oh. I was bribed. So i'm absolved now.

I started the day by calling my kids and I told them that I told them Which may have not been my greatest moment. As a parent.

Obviously, I wouldn't have told them that if I thought there was going to be a breach of the capital Congressman Kilmer is among those in the Washington state congressional delegation who thinks the next two weeks might be too long for President Trump to remain in office. I think it's appropriate that the 25th amendment be considered Andre And let's be clear why I think the president has demonstrated himself to be manifestly unfit for office. He's demonstrated time and again over the last four years. Listen, His actions yesterday incited violence not just against the Capitol building, but against our representative democracy and you know, they're I. You have heard. And I have to Republicans expressed that concern as well. I think the former chair of the Joint Chiefs Admiral Mike Mullen, a man that I have a lot of respect for I was right when he said that Donald Trump is not in a position to lead the next 14 days. And what we saw yesterday may just be the start. So that there The action required to prevent more from happening. And so, with that in mind, I do believe that the vice president, the Cabinet should shouldn't vote. The 25th amendment. And for those people Who sincerely I mean, sincerely believe that there was fraud and it's not being addressed and their country's being taken away from them. What do you tell them? Well, I think it's important to walk through exactly how we we got here. Voters voted two months ago. Those votes were counted by local election departments. Those votes were certified by the secretaries of states for the various states, many of whom were Republicans, many of whom campaign for Donald Trump. In several states. There were recounts, not a single recount. Changed the result. In several states. There were lawsuits by the president and by those who support him, suggesting a whole bunch of conspiracy theories and time after time. After time, the courts have found that those lawsuits have No merit. You had Republican appointed judges finding no evidence of fraud.
