"On Capitol Hill were congressional Democrats taking the rare step of removing a member from the committee's with a handful of Republican votes.

In her speech, she said that she quote stopped believing in Q and on some time in 2018 after finding misinformation, lies and things that were not true. She also walked back some previous comments suggesting that school shootings like the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary and the 20 18 Parkland shooting were staged. She also attracted the past claim, suggesting that the 9 11 terror attacks may not have occurred more from the House floor with representative Marjorie Taylor Greene earlier today, So when we elected President Trump and then I started seeing things in the news that didn't make sense to me like Russian collusion. Which are conspiracy theories also and have been proven. So these things bothered me deeply, and I realized just watching CNN or Fox News. I may not find the truth. And so what I did is I started looking up things on the Internet, asking questions like most people do everyday use Google And I stumbled across something. And this is that the end of 2017 called Q and on. Well, these posts were mainly about this Russian collusion, information. Ah, lot of it was some of what I would see on the news that night, and I got very interested in it. So I posted about it on Facebook or read about it. I talked about it. I asked questions about it. And then more information came from it. But you see, here's the problem throughout 2018 because I was upset about things and didn't trust The government really, because the people here weren't doing the things that I thought they should be doing for us. The things that I just told you I cared about and I want, you know, a lot of Americans don't trust our government, and that's sad. The problem with that is so as I was allowed to believe things that weren't true, and I would ask questions questions about them and talk about them. And that is absolutely what I regret because if it weren't for the face Post and comments that I liked in 2018. I wouldn't be standing here today and you couldn't point a finger and accuse me of anything wrong because I've lived a very good life that I'm proud of. My family's proud of my husband's proud of my Children are proud of, and that's what my district elected me for. Those comments from freshman representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia responding here is Democratic Congressman Jim McGovern in Massachusetts. Is also the chair of the House Rules Committee, explaining why Democrats decided to proceed with today's four vote that would strip the representative from her two key committee assignments. The party of Lincoln is becoming the party of violent conspiracy theories, and apparently, the leaders of the Republican Party in the House today are not going to do a damn thing about it. Now. I never thought I would say this Madam speaker, but I agree with Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader this week. Called Congress one greens embrace of conspiracy theories, and I quote a cancer for the Republican Party and quote I would take it a step further. I think giving cars when green, a megaphone on his standing committee would be a cancer on this entire Congress. None of us get to decide who the voters sent to Congress but his members of this body it is our job to set the standard for the conduct of those who serve here, especially when They cross the line into violence. The Republican talking point now seems to be. I condemn Congresswoman Green's words. But Madam speaker, her words air indefensible period and we must act not because it helps us or hurts them, but because it is the right thing to do for this institution and for America, and that from Congressman Jim McGovern from today.

Was for people to walk down to the Capitol and and sure that their voice says were heard. And that's not a bad thing. That's not a bad thing at all. You know Jim Jordan. He was very effective the other day, you know, speaking about guns, I mean, you've got the conservatives in the House of Representatives. They're doing everything that they possibly can. The Republicans are to ward off this act of vengeance that the Democrats are Engaged in because make no mistake that is what's happening. It is an act of vengeance.

First objective. The Democrats share the Rules Committee. Guess which state He objected to. Alabama the very first day called Alabama President Trump. I think one Alabama like 80 point. Actually wanted by, but he wanted by 30 points. They can object. They can object to Alabama and 2017. But tell us we can't object to Pennsylvania 2021. Pennsylvania, where the state Supreme Court just unilaterally extended the election to Friday. Pennsylvania, where the secretary of state unilaterally change the rules. Went around the Legislature and unconstitutional fashion Pennsylvania where county clerks in some counties and you can imagine which counties they were let people fix their ballots. Against the law fixed, cure their balance their mail in ballots directly via direct violation of the law. They tell us we tried overturn the election. Yes to the second object Awas in 2017. Individual managing the impeachment for the Democrats. Americans are tired of the double standard. They are so tired of it. Democrats object Tomb or states in 2017 and Republicans did last week, but somehow we're wrong. Democrats conveys bail for writers and looters this summer. But somehow when Republicans Condemn all the violence. The violence is summer. The violence last week somehow were wrong. And Democrats can investigate the president. United States as Mr Hoyer went through Try to impeach him investigating for four years but will not look at an election that 80 Million Americans have the electric 80 million. Republicans and Democrats have their doubts about I said this last night. I do not know where all this goes. And this is frightening for the country. We should defeat this rule, and we should defeat the impeachment resolution when it comes up, Gentlemen, Time's expired. Yeah, of course it it didn't. It wasn't defeated. And so now, here we have a situation in the House of Representatives where they have impeach the president twice. Now we haven't all get into this after the upcoming break. Now we have a Republican that wants to on day one file impeachment charges against Joe Biden. When he takes the oath of office in the reason being is because with the Democrats have managed to do The Democrats have actually managed to Shipping. Impeachment. Where it's just not a big deal anymore. If you disagree with the president, What do you do? Well, then, you impeach that president.

You could discuss that not promote violence, for God's sakes. Do you believe this? Go ahead. They tell us we try and overturn the election. Yes, sir. The second objector was in 2017. Individual managing the impeachment from Democrats. Not down like that. You got neither on two things here that are absolutely unbelievable. His pushing. The commutation of the sentence to senses. Of individuals who were caught with massive armaments to block the Capitol building, among others. It's unbelievable that he's leading the impeachment against the president. That he was the second one to object to the president's electors from Alabama. There was no doubt that Donald Trump won Alabama. Go ahead. Americans are tired of the double standard. They are so tired of it. Democrats object to more states in 2017 and Republicans did last week, but somehow where we're all Democrats, canaries, bail providers and looters this summer. But somehow, when Republicans condemn all the violence, the violence this summer, the violence last week somehow were wrong. And Democrats can investigate the president. United States as Mr Hoyer went through, try to impeach him investigating for four years but will not look at an election that 80 Million Americans have the electric 80 million. Republicans and Democrats have their doubts about I said this last night. I do not know where all this goes. And this is frightening for the country. We should defeat this rule and we should defeat the impeachment resolutions point There is obvious. They challenged the legitimacy of the trump election from Day one. They talk about impeachment even before he was sworn in. Um, they push this Russia Collusion narrative at The Washington Post The New York Times all over the media. And they want to have a commission or discussion about what took place in the last election, and they're said to have incited this attack on the Capitol building. Really appalling. I'll be right back. Much.

"Bad things can result in good outcomes. And that could be the great turning point. If Joe Biden is able to use his leadership skills right now for the country's healing and the members take the hand that's given to them. All right. I want to say thank you to Brandon Neil, who was a senior adviser on people to judges. Presidential campaign. Thank you so much. Brandon. For your time. It's deeply appreciated. Let's just reset here because coming up, we're going to be joined by Pennsylvania's Lieutenant governor, John Fetterman, who is a Democrat. Or we're going to ask him about the legal process forward that many states like Pennsylvania are pursuing. As it relates to getting more information about who perpetrated the process of the conspiracy. I'm Kevin so really chief Washington correspondent for Bloomberg Television and for Bloomberg. Radio. I'm joined by Rick Davis, who is a Bloomberg politics contributor. He is also the former campaign manager to John McCain's presidential campaign. The big story, of course, Tonight, the House of Representatives has voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump for a second time. It comes following remarkable testimony on the floor of the United States House. We've got sound on tape from that. Let's take a listen. If these actions He hasn't any hearings. He hadn't any. He doesn't need any long, drawn out consideration if these actions are not worthy of impeachment than what is an impeachable a fence, and Democrats can investigate the president, United States as Mr Hoyer went through Try to impeach him investigating for four years but will not look at an election that 80 Million Americans have the electric 80 million. Republicans and Democrats have their doubts about We must impeach remove this president from the office immediately so that he could not be a threat to our democracy. I can think of no action the house could take It's more likely to further divide the American people and the action we're contemplating today. There you have it and in terms of the next process moving forward, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has already issued a statement in which he said that there will in fact be a trial in the Senate. He urged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to reconvene the Senate before January 20th the date of President elect Joe Biden's inauguration. My colleagues diving into the Bloomberg terminal Reporting as that leader. McConnell has told Republican senators that he's reached no decision on whether he'll vote to convict President Donald Trump on the House's impeachment charge, but that he doesn't plan to call an emergency session to begin the Senate trial before January. 19th. Joining us now is the lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania, a Democrat John Fetterman and Lieutenant governor. Thank you for joining us. And how have the developments of the past week played out and the past day played out in a state like Pennsylvania, which was so crucial unfortunately to the lead up of the insurrection of last week. Well, I mean that that's a great question. And, um the bottom line is security. I was just in Harrisburg today. We have you know, armed soldiers with automatic weapons there. In in and around the capital, you know, in a show of force and a complete revamping of the security for the capital since the events of Us Wednesday that everyone was obviously so shaken up by on the prior Tuesday before that, we had a bit of Ah, dust up in the Senate that we're the ejected me from the chamber. But We also had a couple 100 angry Trump protesters on the front of the Capitol that could have easily gone a similar Web. So I think everybody's now has a clear understanding that You know, we can't tolerate any more of that kind of insurrection and that kind of rioting and I think, you know, certainly in Harrisburg, appropriate steps have been taken, and I don't think You're going to see anything like that manifests itself in House book, but I am also utterly convinced you that the president will retain a strong base of support. Regardless of how the impeachment ultimately plays out, Because that is the kind of power he wheeled over his, you know, core group of supporters. You know, we share this planet. Earlier in the hour. I spoke with Congressman and 11. He's a Democrat from Michigan, and there's now been this opened conversation about whether or not there were any. Unfortunately, Capitol police officers who were He used the word the congressman did sympathetic in terms of what the mob had had perpetuated. He was also, of course, very, very careful to praise the far more who were heroes in that act. Of helping to save lives of the lawmakers to stop the mob. But they're now is this open investigation looking into lieutenant governor? Communication between us these individuals as well as law enforcement and from your vantage point at a state level, you know this. The country is in a state of concern. Rightfully so about Inauguration day that state capitals are protected here in Washington, D C. There is a heavy, heavy military force to protect the nation's capital. So walk us through the process of what elected officials and leaders should be doing to protect their state capitals in the week leading up I think you know, reaching out to the other side and making sure that the members of the Republican Party are firmly in in lockstep with this idea that Violence is unacceptable. Any kind of insurrection any kind of anything this idea that Joe Biden may not be your president, but he will be the president. Emphasizing all of that we had it speak. We have a state senator in our chamber that is being accused of helping participate, ER plan and he paid for a lot of Busses that brought people down. And, um, you know, there's been a lot of calls for his resignation from the Democratic side..

The house voted to create a select committee to you know, at the start of congress back in January to come up with some recommendations on modernizing the legislative branch by the end of the year that panel has been since specifically tasked with developing recommendations on a variety of issues, including congressional schedules procedures technology retention and compensation. There is I think the one thing I'm sure of right now other than the folks that want this. That want the raise there's not a single person in this country right now who's thinking we need to pay. These lawmakers Mr. hall, your needs to be told that these positions were never created to be permanent jobs. You are never supposed to be a career politician true. And you know, what Mr. Heuer, you probably have other opportunities out there, maybe need to hit the bricks. The bricks buddy start walking hit the bricks. This can you don't like your hundred and seventy five to two hundred thousand dollars a year, and your golden parachute and retirement and your Cadillac insurance plan will you always exempt yourself from all the other insurance plans that the people have to take Mr. Hoyer hit the bricks year fire book deal go grab a box. Collect all your things in your desk. We'll meet you in the front lobby see later. I think this is going to be virtually impossible impossible to get public support for this. We we need more money. Oh, you're he called for lawmakers in a pay raise this past week to keep the keep up with the cost of living says arguing with ensure that people who aren't wealthy can serve in congress. They're not making it on that they can't budget. He's having a tough time making ends meet. Yeah. You sure is on hundred seventy five a year one. He should pick up a second side hustle. Maybe he needs to although Uber is about to strike as well. That was yesterday Hooper struck yesterday. Did anybody miss it? Did you miss a ride or anything? No. I did not. I did not. And that's the other other field that was not designed for you to make a career out of. It's supposed to be something you do on the side Representative Derek Kilmer. He's a democrat from Washington chairman of the special committee. Basically he said I had a couple of members off line. Also, raise the issue of pay and you guys gonna look at that. We'll rank and file members of congress are one hundred seventy four thousand dollars annually while members of the leadership earn a little bit more the speaker earns the most two hundred twenty three thousand and while the majority and minority leaders in both chambers in the Senate and the president pro tem earn about one hundred ninety three thousand the Congressional Research Service calculated that if members of congress had received an annual cost of living adjustment the two thousand eighteen sounded we would be just above two hundred eight thousand a year. So many of these folks are already millionaires to begin with from other business interests or family or what have no problem with that? Or marrying very well. Yeah, that's fine. I have a problem with the ones. Is that become president of become a politician? Poor broke allegedly. And then they leave multimillionaires. Yes. Absolutely. Plenty of examples like that this is going to this. This is going to sink a heavy ride. There's not one person who's sitting there right now. How was your politicians by more money? Stephen Ron Ron good morning. Good morning pie. Sierra Leone, call that you guys warned us about it coming in the middle of the night. Yes. Yeah. It came from me. And I don't like people wake me up in the middle of the night like that. And I'm kind of wondering if they're sort of regulatory thing that could be done through the SEC against the phone company for facilitating fraud and theft. Well, that is exactly what state lawmakers are trying to do. In fact, the Texas house has passed a Bill to prohibit telemarketers. From falsifying the caller ID ide- spoofing is what it's called. And they do it constantly all the time. And it seems like it's more and more over the past few months. It is. Am I right about that? Or is it just me? No. You're absolutely right. I mean, it seems like in just the past two three four five six months. Yeah. It's just ballooned in their idiots actually they're idiots because people are onto them. And but I guess again not enough for onto him. They still have enough people biting it to to justify the whole thing. But when I see the, you know, the same through his first three numbers of my phone number. You're out of luck. Yeah. I'm not answering that call. I'm not going to answer the call from Kevin who sounds like he's in an auditorium with a bunch of other Kevin's and after you say Hello. It's about five five eight seconds before. They actually come on. Right. Yeah. Yeah. You lose. Hey, here's Kevin. Nito thinking there..

"Lousy said thirty days from now when asked whether you support the wall said, no. And the President Trump and he walked out. He said, well, this is waste of my time. This is not a process where the president tells us to do things as I recall, Mr Speaker of the constitution of the United States. Article one says we are the policymakers we are the ones who pass the laws. We are the one who says what the executive department carries out as policy. So we ought to pass these bills, and then yes, we ought to deal, honestly, and openly and. Together to make sure the borders are secure. The gentleman said the immigration system does not work. It's broken. He's absolutely right. And the Senate five or six years ago passed a Bill in a bipartisan way with over sixty two votes. Fourteen Republicans and send it to the house under Republican leadership six years ago. They have never brought that Bill to the floor. We have pleaded with them to bring that Bill to fix the immigration system. It has never come Mr Speaker to the floor of this house, but what we should never do. We should never take hostage. The government of the United States the employers who toil every day on behalf of the policies that we adopt and on behalf of the American people. We should never take them hostage and say if you don't do what I say to do we're going to keep them an unpaid status working if they're critical employees and locked out if they're not. Mr speaker. It is very very, unfortunately, we find ourselves in this position. I would urge that the. Republican whip who is my friend, and whom I respect. We'll talk to the president and say, let's open up the government. Mr. Hoyer told me, we will sit down and have a rational reasonable. Fact-based expert based discussion on how in fact, we accomplish the objective. We all say we want to accomplish. And that is make our borders secure. We're prepared to do that openness government. Are-are she's been radio programming from Friday UCSB from Washington. Proclaimed speaker, if the gentleman's finished will obviously have more time to go back and forth on this. But let's keep in mind. A few facts, I while the last shutdown of the United States government, which was dubbed the Schumer shut down because this Senate minority leader wanted to force his way on DACA jealousy. Open mind, this gentleman. I remember. Gentlemen. Remember how long that lasts? It lasted very shortly. Because the gentleman from New York realized he was on the wrong side of the issue. Just like right now your side is on the wrong side of this issue opposing border security, and let's be very clear what the fight is about. It shouldn't be. It's a fight. Because the president has said here's a proposal that my department of homeland security has brought that said these are the tools they need to keep the country safe with a crisis at the border, and it can't be denied. I know someone your side wanted to deny it. I don't think the gentleman from Maryland is it, but clearly when the Senate minority leader, and the speaker of the house go on national TV and say, it's a fabricated crisis at the border. The American people see what's happening at the border. We can debate how best to solve it. The president through the department of homeland security has put down a proposal of what it's gonna take. This is not a new idea. Obviously, the president ran on this as a front and center issue, not only ran on it. But he was elected by the American people as president to carry out border security and build a wall was part of the national debate. I know some people on your side don't even want to recognize that that election occurred in the result. But it how I think it wasn't election. And he did raise that question. And as I recall, that's why I'm the majority leader. And you're the minority whip I don't take you were not the majority leader when that happened. He was elected on that we were still in the majority and win the omnibus Bill came. And let's remember why we're here to think that this is some new idea the president's bringing forward is ignoring the history, and let's go through some of that history, obviously was front and center in the presidential election. And he was elected in large part on building the wall to secure our country's border. So then we go to the first spending Bill as he was president. And we had a disagreement. There were a lot of things that we were in disagreement on we wanted to rebuild our military, and we finally came to a two year agreement to do just that and it was critically important to start rebuilding the military this country that was decimated to give our men and women in uniform who I their lives for our country, a much-needed pay raise we finally did that but in that negotiation the present. Wanted and he was talking about twenty five billion dollars for full border security to build out the full five hundred and fifty miles that are not secure right now. And they're well identified the gentleman from Maryland knows those areas where we haven't build walls. Sure, we've got some money to build walls. There's about one hundred and twenty miles of all being built while that's not all seem at some of its steel slats, let the experts figure out the best way to secure our border. We're not the architects of the border. Let the experts that. But there is some albeit being built, but not enough, and especially in the areas where federal law today prohibits wall from being built, in fact, you want to know how ridiculous some of the laws are right now that we're trying to change federal law prohibits the president from building walls in the most cost effective way. In the most efficient way. Why would we have those kind of prohibitions in law? We passed a Bill through the house before the shutdown happened. You voted no a lot of your side. No, I think all of your side. In fact, voted no. But it was a Bill. The president would have signed that would have given him the tools he needs to secure the border and it went over to the Senate. And the reason it didn't get to the president's desk is not because there wasn't Republican support. They have a sixty vote rule in the Senate. I can disagree. You might even disagree. I don't know. I disagree that on appropriations bills, they should at least let the majority rule so we can properly governed this country in a more efficient manner, but they have a sixty vote requirement. And so the Senate minority the Democrats in the Senate all voted together to block it and that led to a shutdown that Bill would have kept the government running and secured the border, but Democrats voted no in the house. Democrats voted no in the Senate. And so we have a shutdown, and so how are we going to get out of this? How are we going to get it resolved? We could talk about hostages. We talk about the people on your side of the aisle that refused to support any border security with a dollar amount behind it. You can use words all day, but words, don't. Secure our border orders secure our border, walls and barriers secure our border. The president has said you can call it and define it. Whatever you want. He's been very flexible in wanting to negotiate, but in every one of those meetings, there has not been a counteroffer put on the table by your side. And so if we want to resolve the crisis in involves both sides coming together, you've got the president already out there publicly in our meetings, saying he's willing to negotiate and come into a different place work with your side to come up with definitions to come up with a different dollar amount. But it's got an end, insecurity our border. If we all agree on that it has to end in the actual language and dollars to accomplish that objective. And when the president said, I'll give you thirty more days, even though we don't agree on some of these other things all agreed to sign that into law, if you'll agree to work with me on the wall in the speaker said no it was the speaker who said no, not the president. That's why we're at day twenty one. We didn't even need to be at day one. We passed a Bill out of the house the Senate killed it because every democrat voted, no. So here, we are Republicans and Democrats there everybody in this room knows how we can solve this problem. But it's not by y'all sitting there saying we're only going to support a dollar and nothing more real money has to be put on the table to solve the crisis. Now yield. We could go on and on the speaker. Fact, the matter is the Senate sent us a Bill to keep the government open. They pass it unanimously under Republican leadership. President said he would sign it. Changed his mind in this house folded. The Republicans who were in charge. It's time. Wouldn't even put the Senate Bill on the floor. We're not prepared to be bludgeoned. By taking hostage. Eight hundred thousand people who worked for the federal government, and who are not now being paid. Some of them are working. And ironically, they're working to protect the border house majority leader, Steny Hoyer of Maryland and minority whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana earlier today on the house floor and to make sure our planes are flying and make sure people who fly on planes are not a danger. We want.

"Say profitable be as much as four dollars a share. And it had previously forecast as much as four dollars thirty cents. A share again shares down more than seventeen percent now in early trading. And that's a Bloomberg business flash. Tom, and John thank you so much Jennifer when Tom Keene we say good morning to you. Now, we touch on the politics of the nation. Kevin cirilli with us. Our chief Washington correspondent, Kevin I was reading about mcallen, Texas, seventy miles from the Gulf of Mexico up the Rio Grande and. On a science basis. This is what's called a food desert, which is a science basis of saying it's in the middle of nowhere. Does the president in any way really wanna go there? Do you buy the idea that he's being sent to to mcallen, Texas at gunpoint? Well, I think that really what other option does he have his whole political gamble at? This point is to try to turn the tide of public opinion to galvanize beyond his base to get this border wall. But it really appears that you know, she's unit in a couple of weeks. He's threatened to use emergency powers and at the end of the day. She's right now at risk of losing the centrist Republican support in the Senate and that calculation that could really hurt him. We saw to Senate rounds this morning, the former governor of South Dakota. He's absolutely textbook. He's removed. But he's not in. What's interesting to me is Kevin cirilli centered around leadership. What does a guy like rounds want from his Senate leadership right now? To reopen the government. I mean, I thought was notable for a couple of reasons. I did I didn't butcher like I butchered it worse that you would have right. No, I don't. Republicans which is you know, I mean, the president really playing bass in the halls of congress. Well, you know, it's more diverse than that. And that's really I think for the president at the margin. What's important here is I would respectfully suggest the president's plan to a shrinking base with. This is the problem is eight twenty win in the court of public opinion of the moment. Kevin. I think I think that that you have fifty Pelosi about losing at until progressive ever. And we haven't noticed this at all. There's really no restrictions whatsoever. Until you start to hear the left start to criticize speaker Pelosi negotiation style so far. Shifted completely praiseworthy. Until that were to happen. You know, the president's losing tension. The real tension start Kevin when the paychecks of missed when the lines get even longer at the airports when do we start to see the real tension day twenty one twenty two next week? When is it? I think the real touchy would would happen. When Republicans start press, the White House to reopen the government, and I think that the statements for the past forty eight hours of Cory Gardner. To Susan Collins. Shelley Moore Capito here their frustration that that that real political risk for the president. When he believes his very Kevin in preparation for your interview with Mr. Hoyer, Maryland this morning, explain to our audience. What does Steny Hoyer do for speaker Pelosi? Well, his her right hand, man. And you know, in terms of all of the meetings that have gone on on the. With that. With the president and beyond that, he's also tasked with trying to keep the right? It other file, you know, you've got the rise of Alexandria Cossio court says she seems to be tweeting and doing whatever she wants. Toting ideology win by tweet. So you know, he's got a tall. Order ahead of at the Democrats are much more divided. I think that that it appears to be so right now simply because of this partial government shutdown, but what I think you're going to see those have exacerbate Kevin. Thank you so much Kevin cirilli with a swimming from Washington. And of course, he will speak with Mr. Hoyer later today. John. It's always true in every nation. But in America, the distance from the elite east coast, the elite west coast to some of these geographies in America. I I don't really know what the European equivalent. I've talked about this a million times you wanna European equivalent. I'll give you an occasion, I'll give you an equivalent the Brexit. The Brexit vote a couple of years ago that was a classic example of people stuck in London thinking it would go one way when the rest of the country was having. Yeah. It's fascinating. And speaking with Senator rounds of South Dakota. In the Republican, obviously, the democrat, Mr. Koya of the twenty eighth district in Texas. They a lot of common ground, you know, versus what we're hearing from the president. Frankly, what we're hearing from the liberals represented by speaker Pelosi is it's going to be absolutely fascinating. UK over there. Great. How are you? I well, I don't know. Futures are deteriorating is what I would notice. Today's layoff Thursday her firing which tenths of one percent, dramatic relative to ten percent move hard. We've had over the last ten days. We've got a massive rally, and we hit pause on that rally coming into a couple of interesting things over the next twenty four hours. I would say look perfect chairman Jerome Powell speaking down in Washington to the economic club. He'll be with David Rubinstein's. So that's going to be an interesting conversation for me, Tom just to hear those two got back and forth about more than just one is the next move.

"Opinion behind the public wants to government open, and they don't like the idea of a wall, but the president has his Republican party and his supporters strongly behind him. They want the wall, and they're prepared to shut down part of the government. The real question is when does the pain threshold become too much much for either side? And that's why I thought it was interesting that you did see some Republicans in the house some Republicans to two or three in the Senate voice. Maybe it's time to reopen at least part of the government until we get these negotiations going Trump gonna listen to them or is he going to listen to the base and on the other side, you know, Democrats are the party of government and government employees. If this thing stretches on for months, the navy their own base start saying, you know, what it's just five billion dollars. We need to be paid Donna what is that? You've represented the district right here. Plenty of government workers. What do you think the pain threshold is going to be for members of congress that used to be in your shoes on well? I think the pain threshold is going to hit this week. This is the week where paychecks should be going out. It's the week where you begin to see more than just trash piling up at the national parks where people really aren't paying and keep in mind that of those eight hundred thousand federal workers and the additional contractors probably eighty percent of them live someplace other than the Washington metropolitan region. And so members across the country in districts and senators in their states are going to begin to hear from their subcontractors from federal employees that this really is causing them pain. They're not able to make their mortgage, payments daycare payments, all of those things in addition to the things that Mr. Hoyer mentioned, and so I think this is the week to me this is a crucial week when those stories start to come out, and is not sustainable, particularly with some of the some senators who are going to be up in twenty twenty and are vulnerable. What would be your if you were there? Now, would you want the leadership? To be willing to be a little more malleable on this or not. Well, here's what the Democrats offered for the first time ever that you can imagine Democrats actually pass a Republican Bill. They didn't have to do that. But they did it to say here, we're gonna get government open. And I think this week is strategy of beginning to pass these individual bills that have passed the Senate and open up parts of the government that provides services is one direction because then it leaves open the opportunity they just negotiate around the department of homeland security is all about Senate Republicans right now, I think it is all about Senate Republicans and Mitch McConnell is in a very strange spot. I mean, you've heard him say repeatedly this week. I'm not putting something on the floor of the president won't sign. Now that has been interpreted as Mitch McConnell going along with this president on the border wall. I actually read something slightly different into it. Which is to say that Mitch McConnell was assured by a third party Mike Pence at lunch one day, but the president was going to sign the thing that he was going to put on the floor and then all of. Sudden that turned out not to be true Mitch McConnell came out and said, you don't learn anything from the second kicking mule. He told me I'm confident we won't have a shut down here. We are. He was embarrassed. So there's really no there's no advantage for him in doing that again on the other hand Mitch McConnell thinks shutdowns or bad politics. He said it a million times. And he knows it's bad for those vulnerable Republicans in two thousand twenty and I think that's the underlying thing here. And I think you're I think you're correct to things that if there is going to be a place where it gives its probably there. I think there might be pressure from Senate Republicans, but President Trump is still fixated on that base. He needs to have the shutdown continue to such a point that he can turn his base and say, I gave it my all we're not there yet. And he needs that base because the base is the difference between a forty two percent approval rating. Any thirty five percent hangs over all this. He's got to keep Senator Republicans exactly what he needs those people in cases, the president who's more fixated on impeachment. The new House Democrats or the president nited states. Take a listen to him on Friday on this topic. We even talked about that today. I said why don't you use this impeachment? And then she said, we're not looking to beat you. I should that's good. That's good. But you know, what? You don't impeach people when they're doing a good job. David he brings it up almost as much as is some of these new members of congress. Do I love him for for a guy who's sort of not totally honest. He's totally on hidden. I mean, he's totally reveals everything is transparent. It's clearly is on his mind. The Mueller investigation something he tweets about all the time. They're a bunch of investigations and what he's going to do. And this is why it's gonna get so ugly over the course of the year is I assume something's going to happen there. A bunch of investigations is going to be some sort of indictment. He's not going to defend themselves. The Richard Nixon defended himself. He's the Nixon had unconscious deference to the institutions of this Donald Trump does not have that. He's going to try to save himself by attacking the institutions Donna is impeachment hearings inevitable in this new house. I don't think it's inevitable. But I do think that Democrats are prepared to go where the evidence takes them in. The question is Nancy Pelosi holding that at bay. So that the evidentiary base is there. I'm not sure we're quite there yet, but we're getting close all right guys. When we come back. We're gonna talk about one of those Senate Republicans..

"Press secretary Sarah Sanders in the White House driveway this morning. Live at eleven house speaker Nancy Pelosi and other House Democrats will be holding a news conference on campaign finance reform legislation. Nancy Pelosi and other members of the house leadership held a news conference last night talking about the two bills the House Democrats are passing to reopen. Portions of the federal government they are opposed by the president because there's no funding for the border. Wall speaker Pelosi was joined by the majority leader the majority whip appropriations committee chair and the chair of the appropriations subcommittee that oversees homeland security this runs about twenty five minutes beginning with house speaker Nancy Pelosi. Good evening L here with a distinguished. House Democratic leader. Mr. hire distinguished chair of the appropriations committee, Nita Lowey and care of the government. Homeland security's have committee the appropriations committee congresswoman this allied. Okay. Clyburn had come from the area. We. As you are aware. We have we are diligent diligent and persistent in China to open up government as I said today on the floor. We will take ideas good ideas from wherever they come, including the idea of the appropriations bills passed by the Republicans in the United States Senate passed six bills for them on the floor with over ninety votes. Two of them in committee unanimously and those six bills to cover eight agencies departments have government that could be opened. Just by the stroke of the pen of the president of the United States separate from that. We are sending what the Senate set also passed which is a Bill to extend to have a continuing resolution until February eighth taking their. Exact date from the Senate that would cover homeland security. Give us the weeks needed to negotiate an agreement to open up government in that department. Again, we've taken word for word, and I'm going to yield an aroma after Mr. Hoyer to our distinguished chair of the appropriations committee to demonstrate how clearly. The Republican senatorial these measures were Are-are. She's been radio programming from Friday WCS from Washington. And so we're we separated out there to votes one on the eight departments of government that could be open now to meet the needs of the American people to meet the needs of the American people to protect our borders, and and to protect our workers. And again, the other Bill is mostly about protecting our border. So in that spirit. I wanna yell try distinguished democratic leader of the house. Mr. Hoyer to talk about the need for us to open up government. Thank you very much. Congratulations. Madam speaker on your reelection. We're here late tonight. Later than you would usually expect the congress to be here on opening day. People obviously have things to do their family in town. But we are here because we sledge the urgency of opening up the people's government. So that they can be served by the agencies of government on which they rely. And so that eight hundred thousand people who have been put at risk who are worrying about whether they're going to get a paycheck next week. We're going to be worried about whether they're going to be able to pay a mortgage where they're going to be able to play the car payment or their child's school payment. That's why we're here to open up governor. Why what have we done as the speaker just indicated we have taken six bills that the Senate has passed almost unanimously? Passed unanimously out of their committee, Republicans and Democrats joined together. So we have agreement on these six bills. There's not nobody's arguing about six bills. They're not argument the White House, they're not arguing here. We have agreement. One would surely think that if we pass that as I expect we're going to do that the Senate would pass it send to the president. He would sign it because there's no disagreement now there is a disagreement on the homeland security Bill. So we have said, okay. We haven't reached agreement, but we're going to provide some more time. So we can sit down as adults hopefully as rational reasonable commonsense. People and come to an agreement. On something that we all agree with the objective of keeping Americans safe keeping our country safe and keeping our border secure is not in debate. The only thing that's in debate. The means we don't agree with the president's proposal. We don't think it's the proper on most effective efficient means to keep our country safe. So we're saying, okay. We'll do what Senator McConnell did. We'll give us till February approximately four weeks. To come together. And discuss this issue without shutting down government without putting eight hundred thousand people at risk without inconveniencing and putting it raise millions and millions of Americans who rely on the operations of government. So we're hopefully going to pass that Bill to date as well. And I hope that Senator McConnell will put it on the floor. I hope the senators will vote for it and send it down to the president. The president has asked us to come down to meet tomorrow at ten thirty and we will do that. And we'll have a discussion. Eleven thirty excuse eleven thirty..

Again, we've taken worse for word, and I'm going to yield enrollment after Mr. Hoyer to our distinguished chair of the probations committee to demonstrate how purely Republican senatorial these measures were and so we're we separated out there to boats one on the eight departments of government that could be open now to meet the needs of the American people. To meet the needs of the American people to protect our borders, and and to protect our workers. And again, the other Bill is mostly about protecting our border. So and that's spirit. I wanna yell try distinguished democratic leader of the house. Mr. Hoyer to talk about the need for us to open up government. Thank you very much. Congratulations. Madam speaker on your reelection. We're here late tonight. Later than you would usually expect the congress to be here on opening day. People obviously have things to do. They have family in town. But we are here because we sense the urgency of opening up the people's government. So that they can be served by the agencies of government on which they rely. And so that eight hundred thousand people who have been put at risk who are worrying about whether they're going to get a paycheck next week. We're going to be worried about whether you're going to be able to pay mortgage were they going to be able to play the car payment or their child's school payment. That's why we're here to open up. And why and what have we done as the speaker just indicated we have taken six bills that the Senate has passed almost unanimously passed unanimously out of their committee, Republicans and Democrats joined together. So we have agreement on these six bills. There's not nobody's arguing about six bells. They're not arguing with the White House. They're not arguing year we have agreement. One would surely if we pass that as I expect we're going to do that the Senate would pass it to the president. He would sign it because there's no disagreement now there is a disagreement on the homeland security Bill. So we have said, okay. We haven't reached agreement, but we're going to provide some more time. So we can sit down as adults hopefully as rational reasonable common sense people and come to agreement. On something that we all agree with the objective of keeping Americans safe keeping our country safe and keeping our border secure is not in debate. The only thing that's in debate. The means we don't agree with the president's proposal. We don't think it's the proper or most effective efficient means to keep our country safe. So we're saying, okay. We'll do what Senator McConnell did. We'll give us till February approximately four weeks. To come together. And discuss this issue without shutting down government. Without putting eight hundred thousand people at risk without inconveniencing and putting it raise millions and millions of Americans who rely on the operations of government. So we're hopefully going to pass that Bill today as well. And I hope that Senator McConnell will put it on the floor. Hope the senators will vote for it and send it down to the president. The president has asked us to come down to meet tomorrow at ten thirty and we will do them. And we'll have a discussion. Eleven thirty excuse lead. Thirty..

"And as you're speaking, we're looking at what power on the move looks like speaker Pelosi walking here with or security retinue and a member leadership, Steny Hoyer, flanking her shaking hands. She approaches the microphone. Any minute. She's gonna hold this press conference. I think we're gonna listen in and see if she makes news on the shutdown and then come back to our panel. Let's listen, it leader Mitch Hoyer are distinguished chair of the appropriations committee needed Lowy and our tier of the government homeland security subcommittee of the appropriations committee congresswoman Lucille Volvo. All art. Okay. I note Mr. Clyburn had come from the Tyrian. We. As you are aware. We have we are diligent diligent and persistent in trying to open up government as I said today on the floor. We will take ideas good ideas from wherever they come, including the idea of the appropriations bills passed by the Republicans in the United States Senate passed six bills four of them on the floor with over ninety votes. Two of them in committee unanimously on those six bills cover eight agencies departments of government that could be opened. Just by the stroke of the pen of the president of the United States separate from that. We are sending what the Senate set also passed which is a Bill to extend to have a continue resolution until February eighth. Taking their exact date from the Senate that would cover homeland security and give us the weeks it to negotiate an agreement to open up government in that department. Again, we've taken worse for word, and I'm going to yield an moment after Mr. Hoyer to our distinguished chair of the probation committee to demonstrate how purely Republican and senatorial these measures were and so we've separated out there to boats one on the eight departments of government that could be open now to meet the needs of the American people to meet the needs of the American people to protect our borders, and and to protect our workers. And again, the other Bill is mostly about protecting border. So and that's fear. It I wanna Yotaro distinguished democratic leader. Of the house. Mr. Hoyer to talk about the need for us to open up government. Thank you very much. Congratulations modem speaker on your we've been listening to what you just saw Nancy Pelosi in her first press conference since returning to the speakership. She just handed off to standing Hoyer. I want to bring back our panel. We have the perfect panel to help us understand what we're seeing as Pelosi says, there's a new dawn, there's a new congress, and she's putting pressure on Donald Trump to reopen. The government Senator Dorgan having work with her having served in the house. So what are we seeing there? Well, she's going to send back to the Senate. She'll get passed by her majority in the house and send back to the Senate a piece of legislation that the Senate passed nearly unanimously, in fact, by voice vote, you might remember a politician. It was a democrat. In fact, some years ago who said I voted for it before I voted against it a little John Carey tests. Well, well, you you might be the situation here where if Senator. Mcconnell would bring that Bill to the vote to a vote a Bill that's going to pass the house tonight or tomorrow. It would put every Republican Senator in that position saying, well, I bought Ford. But then I before I voted against it. So Senator very good positions in what you're talking about. There is exactly what I was just discussing with Lawrence O'Donnell and Hoyer sort of backing up Pelosi right now making the case as I mentioned, we're gonna keep listening if they take live questions or make news we'll dip back in there..

And the new speaker of the house is speaking right now. And we are making an effort to join the tens of the president of the United States separate from that.
