What does it all mean let's go in depth with our Mona Kosar Abby and Mona this is a dispute about the president's decision to put this. Ship question on the census what in particular is this about what's going on here? Right. So the question that was added. Would you mentioned the citizenship question now? The issue has been brought up by Democrats is the centers for legislative redistricting. And they're saying that because of this decision, a lot of people who come from minority communities or communities, where there might be non citizens and citizens in the household. They may not fill out or return, the censored questionnaire at all. And they might or they might emit information of non-citizen members which will throw off the census altogether, and this could suppress vote count. They said it could also that the the census count. And now, we'll throw off on, for example, the number of congressional seats each state gets. They could also dictate the number of electoral votes in the presidential election, as well as the allocation federal funds to states for a wide variety of public programs. All of this is based on census information. Democrats. You know that, that question like you said, could reduce the senses participation by Latinos other minorities to lead to under-representation there in congress. And I see where the house oversight committee is considering contempt resolution against attorney general Bill bar yet. Again, what's going on there? Right. So right now, there's the debate is still going on. The vote has been postponed to this afternoon. It's a resolution that would cite attorney general William bar, and commerce secretary will barrage in contempt for not providing the subpoena documents now amid this back and forth guy. You just mentioned that the president did, exert executive privilege over those peanut documents yesterday sent a letter to the penalty threatening that they would go down this route, if the vote proceeded, and then this morning, one Elijah Cummings. The chairman started with his opening statement right away. The DOJ sent a letter saying that, you know, quote regrettably us may be assertions necessary by scheduling they called it a premature contempt vote. They said that until this decision was made to hold this of vote that they were ready to provide as much documents as they could. But they say some of the documents at the panels requesting consist of attorney client, communicate. Nations and, and also delivered of communications that under federal that federal courts have deemed privileged in litigation. And so they say they're not able to share this panel, though, especially House, Democrats on the panel say that the documents said they were provided were heavily redacted, and so that's why they went down this route interesting times.

"Safe. It's twelve ten Scott Anez with the Orlando's news at noon while President Trump. He caught a lot of flack from both sides of the aisle about his threat of tariffs on Mexico, but last Friday night, a deal was reached with Mexico. We want you to understand the stories. We're talking about, let's go live to our Mona Kosar, Abdi and Mona the old expression is the devil is in the details, but it would appear that the president's threat of a tariff on Mexican goods has paid off with the deal with the Mexicans. Tell us about it. Right. Problem, we last spoke Mexican negotiators we're here in Washington. And they were trying to work out a deal to avoid the president going through with his threat and imposing that five percent escalating terrorist starting today, obviously, the president on Friday that a deal was reached. But now the president is fighting back against claims that the joint declaration that he reached in Mexico was already in the works. Democrats are saying that the president is essentially trying to save face and that Mexico had already agreed to a lot of the terms if not a year ago, but months ago, remember that the president was saying that there has been a lot of promises coming from the Mexican government saying that they were going to step up their enforcement of illegal immigration. But he said he wanted to see action and that is why he threatened to hit them with that five percent tariff. But then we have acting Defense Secretary, Kevin math lean and who said yesterday that, that he does believe that this deal is all new, or he claims to deal. Is all new. He said the part about Mexico, sending six thousand troops to the border that they share with water Malla had. They never had such a large commitment, and that's in response to the New York Times reporting Ben Mexico had already agreed to do that with then department of homeland security secretary. Kristen Nielsen back in March. Another cornerstone of this deal is the fact that there will be an expansion of the policy that asylum-seekers would remain in Mexico. While claims are in the US. But then, again, the times reporting that Nielsen had already announced that, that that was in the works during a House Judiciary hearing back in December. We'll see Mona we'll see if the proof is in the pudding, the bottom line, is that, if this is a measure that decreases the amount of immigrants coming to our border that will be very interesting because that will mean the president went out of the loan and, and got it done alone. So we'll see what happens there Mona, thank you so much. We appreciate it. That's our very own Mona Kosar, Abby on that story. It's twelve twelve now here news. Ninety six point.

"Ruling on whether congressional Democrats are within their constitutional power in issuing subpoenas for President Trump's financial records. We're going in depth on that now because both sides were before a judge today. And I talked with ABC news correspondent Mona Kosar op who's covering the story. Bring me fully up to date as of this moment, what has happened. Well, today's hearing concluded without a ruling we thought that the judge is going to be swift with this and issue a ruling shortly after he heard the arguments. But instead he decided that he's not going to give both parties until Friday to submit further evidence before the judge issues a ruling during today's hearing we heard from lawyers argued that this isn't about legislation and this referring to subpoena issued by the house oversight committee to the accounting firms. Ours USA for ten years worth of the president's finances, including information used to follow his tax returns. And they said. That this wasn't about legislation that this was a house being unhappy with the president. They also said that congress didn't have the authority to go ahead and request this information. But it seemed like the judge questioned the argument of Trump's lawyers. He said that he believed that congress has clear authority to probe matters. That would inform the American people. He brought up Watergate. And because he said that congress has the authority to lodge probes without pointing to necessarily direct legislative purposes. But then he also pushed back against the house counsel. He said that he was worried that there was no clear line as to what the subpoena is really about. He said that it opens the door to act that this is an astronaut to harass the president. So again, he said that he's going to issue a swift ruling come Friday, but he also said because of the gravity of this case that he was going to give both parties until Friday. So this could be a case where it ends up with the supreme court that each side fights. Either gets the answer at wants her can't go any further right in the president has said that referring to multiple subpoenas that different house panels have issued that he's willing to take it all the way to the supreme court. But this one is the first one that we've seen actually go before a judge. And so, you know, this could be this judge's ruling could provide a blueprint for other judges that are deciding on other cases, if it does go to the courts other cases involving subpoenas that congress issued Mona Kosar ATI from ABC news. Thank you for your time and having me all right six twenty now at news ninety three point one cave. K it's traffic.

"Show. There's a hot subpoena in Washington DC. And the president's attorneys were in court today letting it be known that they were not pleased that federal judge has decided to fast track. This fight over the house oversight committee subpoena of Trump's finance papers from the firm czars USA. And this federal judge is well, I'm gonna let Mona Kosar op de tell the story of she's covering this right there at the capital of Mona welcome back to the Mark Mason show. Thank you for having me. I'm talking about judge a meet meta. Are we talking about the same judge who was somebody for some reason men he wants this thing to be settled sooner rather than later? Take us back a little bit. What what leads us to this point today? Right. So originally, it was thought that he was going to issue a ruling today, but he kind of postponed it and said that he was gonna give both parties until Mateen to submit any extra information. They wanted to before he issues a ruling. Take it back. This is all over the house oversight committee issuing a subpoena. To the accounting firm Mazaar, they were seeking ten years worth of the president's tax returns, including information used to file tax return, the Trump organization or the President Trump's personal and his businesses lawyers sued in DC federal court where they said that this was an overreach that congress doesn't have the authority to do this. And so this leads us to an essentially what could provide the blueprint for other judges because we know that there's a lot of subpoenas going around right now. Yeah. I know I heard that the name everyone is choosing for their baby names now. Subpoena them that could be the number one name when when social security releases the twenty nineteen lists. With the judge came out today said look I'm not gonna rule today. A no judge would make a hasty decision on such important issues for the sake of expediency. But then he turned right around and said, we're not dragging this out either. A right Trump floors originally tried to stall yesterday, they sent a letter over asking the judge to either give them more time to really, you know, prepared to be able to make their case or to cancel the hearing altogether. The judge denied their request and he went forward and the hearing did take place today, and I guess to their benefit he is giving them until eighteen, but he was very clear that the judge said that he believes that both sides have made their arguments as clear as possible, and there's not much more than he needs to understand before making a ruling what's interesting here is that Trump's lawyers have were pointing to the fact that there's no legislative purpose behind the subpoena. They said that. Isn't about legislation, but it's not the house being unhappy with the president the judge then said that when it comes to congressional authority when it comes to congress being able to to launch probes into for example, the president they don't necessarily need to be able to point to a Bill and say that well, it's because of this legislative purpose that we have launched this probe. He he's Watergate is an example where there is a lot of congressional investigations that were started that necessarily warrant tied to a certain legislation or didn't have a legislative purpose. But then he also then again kind of went back. He said that it really does open the door to the accusation that this really is an effort to harass the president. He said there's no clear line as to what is it exactly that house is seeking? So it's interesting to see that, you know, the house oversight committee saying that they're just looking into matters about Trump's possible financial conflicts. At one point the judge asked Trump's lawyer. This is the quote say, for example, if a president had a financial interest in a particular piece of legislation that was being considered here. It is a financial interest in a particular piece of legislation that was being considered in your view. Congress could not investigate whether a president has a conflict of interest and Trump's lawyers said it would lack legitimate legislative purpose. I'm an I'm not a lawyer. But I I can see what kind of purpose. They would be in a question like that. Oh, definitely, especially when the constitution gives congress that power essentially to be able to check another branch of government. And so I think that's what the judge was alluding to there when he asked that question. But it seems that he's also trying to figure out, you know, is this really just, you know, the democratic led house oversight committee's effort to harass president of the Trump's lawyers are also accusing Democrats of using the subpoena as a political tool to damage, the president ahead of the twenty twenty election. But again, this you know, this is just one subpoena. We have the House Financial Services and intelligence committee. Who's also subpoenaed the president's over the president's finances. They she subpoena to Deutsche Bank and Capital One. And then you have the House Ways and means committee that issued a subpoena right now to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin for the president's tax returns. And in the judge even said to the he asked Trump's lawyer. If it was correct. There hasn't been a case in which congress was found to have issued an unlawful subpoena since eighteen eighty and Trump's lawyer had to say, yes your honor. That's true. I mean, I'm like one hundred and nineteen years ago was the last illegitimate or unlawful subpoena that anyone could dig up. Yeah. Well, it was interesting too that this case or necessary not this case, excuse me. But the other case for the president's tax returns is based on the law that was passed in nineteen twenty four. And so it just seems that you know. These laws and these the precedence for these cases of inset more than a hundred years ago. But it's interesting to see how this is all coming to play. And and you're right. When you see something like that is really hard to argue that this is an unlawful subpoena. I think the the judge was he setting was he setting everybody up was he setting Trump's attorneys up for ruling because it seems like he was he was pretty the judge for pretty aggressive here. I don't want to say, well, maybe not aggressive. But I was putting everybody on notice. The you're gonna have to do some work here to prove that this was illegitimate, right? He definitely didn't make it or he made it clear that you know, he felt that congress does have the authority to to launch these investigations and look into what they're looking into. But again, it is also inch. We can wait to see what happens. On Friday because he didn't make it clear that you know, he's still trying to figure out to where he said there's no clear line as to what this is really about. He also wants to make sure that maybe this isn't just a witch hunt. We got an extension. This engagement has been extended for looks like four more days. So thank you so much Mona Kosar. Aldi. Everybody was expecting a big ruling today.
Showdown looms between Congress and attorney general over Mueller report
"It was a week of mounting tension in Washington between the Trump administration and Democrats in congress attorney general William Barr refused to testify Thursday before the House Judiciary committee in his place. An empty chair chairman Jerrold Nadler says if bar does not hand over the unredacted Muller report and its underlying evidence. The attorney general will be held in contempt of congress history will judge us for how we face this challenge. We will all be held accountable. In one way or the other. And if he does not provide this committee with the information at demands and the respect it deserves is the bars moment of accountability will come soon enough. The Justice department objected to Democrats demand that bar take questions from staff attorneys who worked for members of congress. House minority leader Kevin McCarthy defended bars absence, one time has staff question the cabinet level of oil. And that was during the impeachment hearing that same day speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi accused of committing a crime or from ABC's Mona Kosar Abdi on Capitol Hill. House speaker Nancy Pelosi says the attorney general line to congress about his handling of the Malla report. The attorney general of the United States of America was not telling the truth to the congress of the United States. That's a crime below sea. Then accused bar of now being loyal to his oath of office. But rather to the president nobody is above the law. Not the president of the United States and not the attorney General Motors are Aldi ABC news, Capitol Hill. The Justice department called Pelosi's words, reckless irresponsible and false many Democrats want the attorney general to resign are did testify about the mother report Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary committee where he faced tough questions about the Muller letter. ABC's Mary, Bruce, covered it all from the capital just hours before news. Broken Muller had complained to the attorney general about bars decision to release his own summary of the reports conclusions Muller voiced his frustration in a letter to bar on March twenty seventh writing the attorney general summary did not fully capture the context nature and substance of this offices work and conclusions. Adding there is now public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation, the letters its navy, and I think it was probably written by one of his staff. People Muller wrote his own summaries of the report and twice as Barda released them, but Barr refused. The two men later talked on the phone and bar insists Muller did not accuse him of misrepresenting. The report there were not taken of. Of the call. May we have those notes? No, why not. Why should you have bar new of Muller's concerns when he testified last month, but he didn't reveal them when asked about concerns from the special counsels team members of the special counsel team are frustrated at some level with limited information included in March twenty four th letter that it does not adequately accurately necessarily portray the reports findings do you know what they're referencing with that. No, I don't Democrats demanded to know why he didn't tell them about Muller's letter. You say you were not aware of concerns by answer to question. And the question was relating to unidentified members. I talked directly to Bob Muller. Not members of his team for your

"Airports and rails ABC's Mona Kosar. Abdi joins us on the KOMO Newsline from Capitol Hill with the details of what Democrats consider a very constructive meeting with the president Mona right? These days. That House Democrats or even just congressional Democrats and the president agree on teams that they've come to terms that they can agree on for infrastructure plan. You mentioned initially the Democrats throughout at one point nine trillion for the plan, but in the president Chilean, which also pleased Democrats, they talked about rebuilding the nation's crumbling infrastructure, including roads highways bridges tunnels, and the Democrats also included at clean, energy and clean water. Things get tricky is of course, where the funds for the plan will come from. The president. And congressional Democrats will once again meet in about three weeks, and he hopes that at that meeting. The president will then throw out some ideas of where that two trillion for the plan will come from. Yeah. Because something has to give if they're going to come up with that money, and what a Republicans say about this higher number right now, it seems that everyone's on the same page Republicans have long had died. You know, there is work that needs to be done. This has been on both sides of the aisle, a topic. That lawmakers gonna agree on saying that there needs to be some upgrades made to our infrastructure. Interesting is that on the other side of the country, the president acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, was before it came out about what was going on in this meeting about what he thought about this plan or if they were going to come up with an agreement on a plan. He said that it's not so much about the number that they come up with the plan that they come up with. It's the issue is that it takes so long for things to get done. It might be ten years before we see any progress. And even Chuck Schumer mentioned that. He hopes that you know, some of this will be implemented over the course of twenty five years where Mick Mulvaney was saying that he believes that the president wanted to see more immediate results perhaps in the next two years because he saying the issue right now is not so much about Democrats and Republicans agreeing on a plan. It's about expediting it. So that it happens. Also on Capitol Hill. It sounds like there's a green light Mona for Thursday's hearing on the Muller report, whether attorney general Bill bar is there or a no show right and tomorrow house. Democrats have a vote scheduled to go ahead and vote on the format of the hearing and weather Stadler's will be able to question the attorney general because that's the point of contention, right? There is that the Justice department is saying the proposed format for the hearing where there will be an additional thirty minutes on both sides for staff lawyers to question questions to the attorney general unnecessary. Congressional hearing members of congress should be the ones asking the question, but not staff lawyers. But it seems that they do have the votes. This proposal, and it looks like they're going to go ahead and move forward with keeping the format Jerry that he's not going to allow the attorney general to dictate how the hearing is conducted. He is standing firm in keeping the questioning for members of congress and for his staff lawyers. So it'd be interesting to see if Thursday, these attorney general does show up ABC's Mona Kosar Abdi from Capitol Hill. Thank you Mona. Thank you. Just ahead of sports time to guess the KOMO afternoon. Sound bite your chance to win a night out on us, listen carefully. Here's today's some bites. Really? Now, what.

"For ways you can look at it from the Democrats side and go. Okay. You understand? They think hey, we want to get our attorneys in here. They're better verse. They know what to ask. We don't know. What to ask? Okay. On the other hand, you can look at this and go, okay. Maybe that's a little bit of overkill camp. They just meet with their attorneys ahead of time. Find out some of the questions that they should be asking or all together and compare notes make sure that they ask the questions that need to be asked. Right. And they only had a few days now to reach some kind of compromise. But it looks like either side isn't budging, the chairman of the House Judiciary committee, Jerry Nadler said that you know, he doesn't have any intention of changing the format that they have agreed upon. So, you know, now, we just have to wait and see does the attorney general show up to Capitol Hill for this hearing or not if he doesn't what happens. The house. How house does your committee has threatened that they would issue a subpoena? But again, that's less desirable. Obviously than having him voluntarily come and testify can get messy already. There is word that the White House is urging a lot of former staffers that have received subpoenas already that they should ignore them. That's obviously a different path to go down the legal messy road to go down as well. And so it's easier for both sides if attorney general and barges comes voluntarily testifies. So I'd like to see that, you know, maybe in the next few days, there'd be some sort of compromise between the judiciary committee and the attorney general's office. All right. Thank you so much for explaining that Mona. Thank you. All right later. That's ABC's. Mona Kosar Abdi, and you can see on one side. You've got the attorney general going. Hey, wait a minute.

He will still continue to run his campaign on that message of unity. It sounds like he was about to announce the way he was coming out today. It was a little more aggressive. Oh, definitely. It looks like he's on the verge of making a decision. He talked about how his lawyers sold them to be very careful about the words he uses so he doesn't start the clock too early.

But now Mexico say, no, no first time in decades, we will not let anybody get too. And they've apprehended over thousands of people today at the at the southern border their southern border and that bringing back a contract.

And Mona these twelve Republican senators a list, which includes Susan Collins Mitt Romney, rand, Paul, Florida. Senator Marco Rubio all saying that basically what they're concerned about a precedent here. Correct. They are they've been making it clear from the start that they're not necessarily against the president's border plans. Many of them support the president's border plans and enhancement requests for the southern border. But they believe he's taking it a step farther. They don't agree with him overstepping congress and trying to get funding for his border wall without going through congress. And that is what they've been making clear now, the president on the other hand all week has been saying that a vote for this resolution is a vote against border security and minutes after the vote. He tweeted out one word veto in capital letters, and then a subsequent tweet that said, I wanna thank all strong Republicans who voted to support border security. So he's making a clear that he feels that the the all the the twelve Republicans that voted for this resolution are voting against his border security plan. So we're on our way to. A veto which would be the first of his presidency. But the next step in the fight against the president. I guess is going to take place likely in the courts across the nation here.

So, you know, the president earlier this week as well released his budget proposal for twenty twenty and in it. He's requesting even more money for his border wall about eight point six billion this time, which is a lot more than the initial five point seven that led to that thirty five day government shutdown, and so he's showing his supporters, and he's showing the Republican party that he's going to be exhausting all options.

"Vote is expected within the next few days on a resolution to block the president's declaration of a national emergency. Joining me now to talk about this Mona Kosar Aldi from ABC. Good morning. Good morning. Looks like the vote will likely happen on Thursday and ahead of the vote. The president tweeted yesterday that he wants Republican senators to get tough. He said, it's a very easy vote in the White House has been pressuring Senate Republicans to not vote for the measure disapproving his declaration of a national emergency. Now, it's not even a question of if this will pass, but rather how big the blow will be how many votes will the president lose to the opposition. Because right now, the opposition is pretty certain that they have the fifth fifty one votes needed to pass this resolution. Disapproving the national emergency. And to mitigate the situation Republicans at least two of can read senators want to revise the language to make it clear that there while they're not against border security. They are against the way, the president went about it by declaring national emergency. A lot of them saying that this is setting a dangerous precedent. But in that same tweet, the president said, it's not about constitutionality or precedent. But rather stopping crime and drugs, well, all things considered. You know, this vote though is going to be seemingly symbolic considering. It's not expected to have much of a future. Even if it does pass the Senate, the president is expected to veto this it will serve just as a review of the president. The president has said that he will one hundred percent veto this and then from there, it doesn't necessarily go into effect because fourteen states, including California and New York have sued over this matter. And so have other organizations who will likely get tied up in the courts and the president has since kind of moved on and. Has requested more money for his border wall and the twenty twenty budget as we saw yesterday. So it seems that he's just showing his base and showing conservatives and Republicans that he's exhausting all options. All right. Always with great insight. ABC's Monaco's robbed you joining us.
