"Rachel Martin and I'm David Greene let's think for a moment about when a coronavirus vaccine becomes available which countries are going to be at the front of the line to receive it and which ones are going to be at the back global health organizations are working on plans for international cooperation but there are also signs of competition a battle between nations it's been described as a kind of vaccine nationalism let's talk about this with NPR national security correspondent Greg Myre hi Greg good morning David so there's certain countries we're talking about here that that are already showing signs of theirs they're competing yeah the really the main competition is between the US and China both president trump and Chinese president xi Jim paying have been hurt politically by their handling of the virus and they would love to reverse that by handling the vaccine well at home now they're poachers have been a little bit different in the U. S. trump's operation warp speed is designed to get a covert vaccine for Americans it's in line with his America first ideology in it could be a huge boost if it happens before the November election although that's very very optimistic and you've also seen trump become increasingly critical of China well what is China's position all this so president she is taken a bit of a softer line at least publicly you could perhaps call it vaccine diplomacy China is offering two billion dollars to help developing countries deal with a pandemic China also signed on to a World Health Organization resolution that calls the vaccine to be a a global public good in the U. S. has pointedly not joined in but China is pushing very hard for a vaccine it has several trials underway and you know what if China gets a vaccine first to get a very different priorities about how to distribute it to the rest of the world Greg I just think about this country's rushing to get it first but this is a global pandemic even if their politics playing some role here in leader's mind isn't a recognition that this all requires like a global solution yes absolutely just just consider this one example Oxford university in Britain is working on a vaccine trial that looks pretty promising they partnered with AstraZeneca which is a Swedish British multinational drug company in the U. S. government has announced it is providing more than a billion dollars to AstraZeneca to make vaccines so there's going to be a lot of international players but it does take time to ramp up production and I spoke about this with Nancy Kassebaum fester of bioethics and public health at Johns Hopkins university the challenge is going to come and what will be at least the first year in terms of has to be combined with disagreements about who should be first second and third in line when it comes to who should be first second and third grade I mean is is is the wealth gap in the world can play a role I mean we can expect wealthy countries to be able to be at the front end and developing countries you know some of which have seen rising cases really really struggle well that's probably gonna happen it always does but global health organizations say this is a recurring challenge in dealing with western pharmaceutical companies which have tremendous leverage in the developing world and I spoke to about this with Kate elder of doctors without borders I think of the global community but ultimately the power pharmaceutical corporations hands to make those decisions it's up to that at once Gail they produce the backing and at what price they set than that as you were the first customer thirty feet that'll cater jail so there will be in school intense scrutiny on whoever gets a vaccine to share it widely fairly in a reasonable price we'll see if that happens Greg.

general will join me at seven thirty L. and and I've got to tell you that Josh's put together all the sound so when when Jan mentions a movie you'll hear the sound let's go to your calls now Gregory from San Ramon you waited a long time Gregory thank you for your patience thank you John Hey the lady was right you are a breath of fresh air and we all love listening to you thank you Sir alrighty you welcome I'm originally from Kansas but I heard the culling go west young man go west I think I think you can't get out of Dodge I had to know Republicans are you are you trying to destroy the state what is happened in Kansas today is a Republican Democrat saying we finally finally have a democratic governor once again and those Republicans or is it just a big whole blue to hate to say we have control and then the other thing is we have a Senate races that they want to put another Republican in place so this like let's do all of this so we can keep the state Republican then don't have a democratic senator we have been given credit governor if that's what it's all of you know it's it's a far cry when Kansas had a governor like alf Landon or a governor like Fred a hole or a senator like Bob Dole or Nancy Kassebaum Landon a Kansas Republicans were moderate in their approach and something has gone seriously wrong in the Republican Party I do not believe in until late this is Democrats can get more gain more control the Kansas Kansas will see the light once again these people are doing the right thing the Republicans are only doing it just to destroy the Democrats and that's what people have to realize is that the church thing it's really not because the Catholic church's uses dogs to temples the the the evangelicals are trying to run over run all of the religious orders there excuse me for interrupting excuse me for a thing I've been looking for this the stay with me this just came across the wires two minutes ago okay great Kansas alone a virus update the Supreme Court sided with governor Laura Kelly in the fight over church crowds just broke I heard it here first on the John Rothman program on KGO and I know I know one of the justices on the Supreme Court to won't say which one wonderful you know this is just going to put fire under the Republicans to go harder harder now anything that she does then carefully to do this what sort of what the governor there one time too and she's a great supporter of any democratic and moderate Republican there then and can't and will come out of this ahead in the long run John thank you so much for your time and I sure appreciate it thank you thank you so much I appreciate that okay let me just tell you the Kansas coronavirus update the Supreme Court ruling four minutes ago four minutes ago you can't say we're not on top of everything here KGO they ruled the governor Kelly is right on this thing dealing with churches it's a tremendous blow to the Republican Party no question about it and and you know what they deserve this review they deserve the rebuke thank god the Kansas Supreme Court for the first time standing up on this overruling the Legislative Council and siding with the governor of the state or Kelly it's it's fascinating the Kansas Supreme Court reinstated governor Laura Kelly's ban on large church crowds by determining that a Republican led panel does not have the power to overrule an executive order Kelly's order limiting religious gatherings to no more than ten individuals is now in effect for Easter Sunday morning services and by the way the court did not consider whether governor Kelly's order infringes on religious freedom instead this is what's amazing thank god for secular democracy instead justice is focused on the language of a hastily drafted resolution passed by the legislature shortly before adjourning in March the resolution granted the governor emergency powers for responding to cold at nineteen and attempting attempted to give the legislative coordinating council the authority to reverse any executive order issued by the governor this decision follow historic arguments held entirely by video conference because of the virus for the first time in the court's history in caps for days of high stakes political posturing I want you to understand the governor move to limit church crowds in response to the outbreak of this virus connected the church events in Kansas a panel of five Republicans and two Democrats overturned the governor's order Republicans objected to the possibility that someone well could be arrested or fined for going to church I just want you to understand the Attorney General who is a Republican Eric Schmidt distributed a memo telling law enforcement to ignore the governor's directives and now you have the decision by the Supreme Court of Kansas what a marvelous tribute to American democracy and I'm so glad it happened on my watch here on KGO let's go to Fred Fred calling from San Jose friend welcome to KGO hi John hi Fred I'm so glad that the vast majority of places of worship have the good sense to remain closed during the span technique but for those of want to open I'd like to remember the story of lord Jesus was tempted by the devil for himself down from the top of the temple and the double sure that the angels with stay home for many harm and Jesus said you shall not pollute more diet guards to this test by the way I also support a woman's right to choose that's all I have to say John up the good work we'll do our best we'll do our best thank you and have a happy holiday up four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten leave you understand tonight was a marvelous night what made it so marvelous because before we go to channel all of the fun of movies and religion we can celebrate the fact that reason veiled over a logical passion eight I hope the people of Kansas I understand but the Republican Party was prepared to put Kansas is in danger.

"Welcome to the president's inbox a see for a podcast about the foreign policy challenges facing the United States. I'm Jim Lindsey director studies at the council on foreign relations. This week's topic is the I treat. With me this week to discuss President Trump's decision to draw the United States from the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty where the IMF treaty is Laurie Esposito Murray. Laureus Adjunct Senior fellow here at C afar, and she's had a distinguished career in the defense area. She previously held the distinguished national security chair at the US naval academy during the Clinton administration. Lori was special advisor to the president on chemical weapons convention where she helped oversee the bipartisan approval of the treaty. She is also the former assistant director for multilateral affairs of the US arms control and disarmament agency at the US State Department, and she was once a staffer to Senator Nancy Kassebaum Republican of Kansas in the United States Senate at the time the Senate, provided it's advising consent to the IMF treaty Laurie. Thanks for joining me today. Well, thank you. Thank you for that introduction, and a very happy to be joining on this, very important topic. Well, Laura, they say it's always best to be. Begin at the beginning. So let's do a scene setter. What exactly is the IMF treaty, and what is governed treaty is considered an historic treaty because it was the first treaty to eliminate an entire class of nuclear weapons. And that's what are considered intermediate range nuclear weapons from five hundred to five thousand kilometers or three hundred thirty four hundred miles it eliminated these ground based systems both cruise missiles and ballistic missiles, and it actually eliminated them in terms of both conventional and nuclear capable warheads. And so it just wipe this entire system out resulted in over twenty five hundred reductions of these systems that were in Europe and much the start process old with its extensive affiliation. And being the first reduction treaty actually launched the strategic arms reduction process that has led to these massive reductions in strategic weapons that have happened. Nineteen eighty six. So I take it. There are a couple of important takeaways. Their number one, this is a treaty governs what the United States and the Soviet Union at the time now Russia can do which basically not have these intermediate range nuclear missiles, number two. We're talking about ground-based missiles, the treaty doesn't apply to either air-launched or see launched missiles in number three for the United States and Russia it applies to missiles, regardless of whether they're carrying nuclear or conventional warheads. Right. Exactly. So why is it that President Trump has announced that the United States is going to withdraw from this storm treaty that Ronald Reagan negotiated. Well, the death of the tree is actually in a slow roll during the George W Bush administration the Russians actually spoke to members of the president's cabinet about their problems with this. I n f treaty and at that time that concerns were that China..

"Woman growing up in her independence, fierce independence, where she was even willing to take on Joe McCarthy, and where she showed that it was, you know, country over party with someone that I followed. Because I was the first democratic woman elected in her own, right? Some of the old timers wondered who was this kind of feisty democratic gal coming from the house of representatives. When I came. There was only one other woman who's serving Senator Nancy Kassebaum Republican from Kansas, a wonderful advocate for her people. And for the country. I was the modern woman who wore slacks and so on so on a snowy Saturday when we were working. I wore scotch when the Senate for Senator Byrd was there to give a nod to show he knew about it was okay. And you would have thought that I'd walked on the moon on his spacesuit when she came to the Senate in one thousand nine hundred eighty s she quickly became a dominant figure and became the dean of the Senate women Senator mcculskey was very important figure in helping each of those women come to the Senate to gain their feet here in the Senate to get committee assignments. If they wanted to learn the ways around the place and to build a really strong blind. Among the Senate women senators that is in place today. Senator Hutchison reached out to me when an economic empowerment issue in my you, she wants to work with you want something new. Do she's one of those. She's a conservative from Texas and she wants to do something for women and both her staff and my staff were wary of each other. Partisanship was growing we decided to go ahead. Had dinner one night to pot strategy. So enjoyed ourselves said opening up, and that's when the women in the Senate began to have our monthly dinners, and we are not a caucus. We were always so forced because we're not unanimous when our opinion so new shoes we would try to find some consensus issues to work one. But what we all agreed upon was that we would be zone of civility and that we will try to show that even when you disagree. You don't have to try to bring the institution down with the dignity of the institution down. And even now in this. Most tumultuous time women continue to meet the brought a whole different culture into the institution. Now. Twenty three women senators, you can see ways in which the women senators work together in different ways, they collaborate in different ways. They create groups together in different ways most fundamentally the inclusion of women senators. Has meant that the scope of the issues that senators consider has widened dramatically. It also has just changed the culture of the Senate in other ways because it's more accommodating to women now, it's more common. Dating to females staff. Not just senators. We're looking at issues like childcare, we're looking at issues like. Women who have infant children. Recent case of Senator Duckworth bringing her baby into the Senate chamber is a perfect example of how women are changing the culture of the Senate on an everyday basis. One of the most important. Senator can do is been on the right committees. While women members are changing, the modern Senate, the committee system, they work in is experiencing changes. Well, as it has been the senate's earliest days, you form relationships in the committee because committees are like a club within a club. So we get him on the committee is decided by the leader of the party in the Senate usually their power watches, according to seniority. The Senate divides its work between sixteen standing committees for special committees and four joint committees with the house the history of the Senate and a lot of ways is the history of communities, and it's changed dramatically over time. And actually they were not minis. They were ad hoc committees created whenever they needed something. And then they realized they needed to have standing committees where they could really develop expertise at the beginning of the twentieth century. There were seventy four standing committees of the Senate. Well, fragmentation is not the road to officiency for sure. So one of the first major reforms was to cut down the number of committees to sharpen their jurisdictions because there are a lot of competition.

There was only one other woman who's serving Senator Nancy Kassebaum Republican from Kansas, a wonderful advocate for her people in for the country. I was the modern woman who works, right? So on so on a snowy Saturday when we were working. I wore Sfaxien from the Senate for Senator Byrd was there to give a nod to show he knew about it. It was okay. And you would have thought that I'd walk on the moon on his spacesuit when she came to the Senate in the night. Thousand nine hundred eighty s she quickly became a dominant figure and became the dean of the Senate women Senator mcculskey was a very important figure in helping each of those women come to the to gain their here in the Senate to get committee assignments, they wanted to learn the ways around the place and to build a really strong blind.

When something new she's one of those she's a conservative from Texas, and she wants to do something for women in both her staff, and my staff were wary of each other. Partisanship was growing we decided to go ahead had dinner one night to pot strategy show. Enjoyed her show said open it up. And that's when the women in the Senate began to have our monthly dinners, and we are not a caucus. We were always a forced because we're not unanimous when our shoes we would try to find some consensus issues to work one. But what we all agreed upon was that we would be zone of civility and that we would try to show that even when you disagree. You don't have to try to bring the institution down with the dignity of the institution down. And even now in this most tumultuous time the women continue to. They brought a whole different culture into the institution here. Now. Twenty three women senators, you can see ways in which the women senators work together in different ways, they collaborate in different ways. They create groups together in different ways. Most fundamentally the inclusion of women senators has meant that the scope of the issues that senators consider has widened dramatically. It also has just changed the culture of the Senate in other ways because it's more accommodating to women now, it's more common. Dating to female staff. Not just senators. We're looking at issues like childcare, we're looking at issues like. Women who have infant children. Recent case of Senator Duckworth bringing her baby into the Senate chamber is a perfect example of how women are changing the culture of the Senate on an everyday basis. One of the most important. Senator can do is been on the right committees. While women members are changing, the modern Senate, the committee system, they work in is experiencing change as well as it has been the senate's earliest days you've formed their relationships in the committee because committees are like a club within a club. So we get on the committee is decided by the leader of the party in the Senate, usually their power wise is according to seniority. The Senate divides its work between sixteen standing committees for special committees and four joint committees with the house the history of the Senate and a lot of ways is the history of communities, and it's changed dramatically over time initially, they were not they were ad hoc committees created whenever they needed something. And then they realized they needed to have standing committees where they could really develop expertise at the beginning of the twentieth century. There were seventy four standing committees at the Senate. Well, fragmentation is not the road to officiency for sure.

It has now happened to him the Democrats have control of the house of representatives his life changes in ways that he still I think cannot yet imagine. Yeah. That's right Lawrence. And look, I think you know, you watched last night unfold emotion. Election nights are always emotional, especially for Democrats who attached themselves for understandable reasons to the fortunes of charismatic candidates. And we're trying to do new things and make history people like Stacey abors people like Andrew gillum people like better work. And then they saw the fall, and you could sense the people were given how emotionally invested they were there unhappy about that. And we're fearful that they were seeing in. Twenty eighteen a rerun of two thousand sixteen and then those house seats started to fall one by one by one starting around really in a rush around the time around ten o'clock in the late nine o'clock hour around ten o'clock, and suddenly you realize what was happening which was that in the end as as crushing for some people some of those high profile losses are that the history books will write about only one thing last night. It will not write about those three candidates who may have been futures ahead of them or not it will not write about the fact that Donald Trump is Republican party gained a couple of seats in the Senate at a time when the Senate map favorite Republicans to a degree not seen one hundred years. What it will write about is the fact that unitary government in Washington is now over and that for the first time Donald Trump's political life for his presidency. One branch of government or half of one branch of government is controlled by the opposition party. And that that again that will be the headline. That'd be the thing that should be the headline out of last night. It will be the thing history books right about and the consequences for Donald Trump politically in terms of his legislative agenda, and certainly in terms. Of his own and his entire cabinets need to warrior up are pretty profound ambassador. Wendy sherman. A record number of women now elected of before you comment on that. Let's listen to some of those women who won last night. When we launched this campaign conventional wisdom dictated that this race was unwinnable we voted and we won. And it all together today is a milestone, but it is really a beginning air, my voice. Well, here our voices taking our voice to Washington here in Minnesota. We don't only won't come immigrants. We fend them to Washington. When did Sherman you marched in that women's March the day after the Trump inauguration where the resistance physically formed and joined together in the streets of the first time, the resistance won the house representatives last night. It was really extrordinary alarms, and I agree with John. This is what history is going to write about.

"All right. And you have been able to garner endorsements from around the state, not just from Democrats, but from Republicans to I have some some very high profile Republicans, including our former governor Bill graves and former US Senator Nancy Kassebaum. And I think that's because of for my entire career in state Senate, I have worked in a bipartisan manner to get. Public policy past, you know, I was actually a math major when I went to college, so I can count the most Democrats we've ever had in the Senate caucus have been ten, takes twenty one to pass a vote here. Moderate Republicans never had twenty one votes either. So we just worked together to get legislation passed that was in the best interest of our state. I think it's been that that style of interaction and also then my my grasp of the issues, my experience, my depth of knowledge about our state is what attracted those Republicans across over and support me. I think there's no doubt the fact that my opponent is Chris Kobuk who is best known as the nationally anyway, as the co chair of Donald Trump's voter, integrity commission along with the vice President, Mike Pence heads something to do with Republicans being very interested in in my becoming governor. It's definitely one of the things that interested me in the race. Besides education, what are some of the issues that are really facing Kansas right now and that really require these kind of bipartisan solutions? Well, I think that people know that in twenty twelve and then again in twenty thirteen Sam Brownback instituted in experiment here in the state of Kansas slashing, our income taxes dramatically. We went right over the cliff is soon as he did that and ever since our our state has really been in a world of hurt. You know, I mentioned the schools being devastated, but we have also stopped funding our infrastructure. You know, we used to have some of the best roads in the country. We've, we've stopped building and we've stopped maintaining and we've never expanded Medicaid. One of the one of I think only sixteen other states that didn't do that. So we've, we have just. Done, and I say, we, he, he just did so many things that have really decimated our state. You know it, broad and deep, the damage that's been done. And so we have a whole host of things that we have got to address. Fortunately, the people at Kansas recognize the disaster in twenty sixteen and elected a number of Democrats and a number of moderate Republicans enough so that we were able to overturn the Brownback tax experiment and put ourselves on the road to recovery. So we've seen revenues coming in over estimates for the last sixteen months..

"Way Christine Blasi Ford was treated to go forward would would not after hearing what she had to say, vote to confirm him, and now that they did, I think you see this wave coming through America and how women are waking up to say, wow, the Republican party really is not. It's really not for me personally, and I suspect that they're gonna pay price not just next month, but they're going to have a long term problem with women coming out of this early. Don't Trump doesn't know how to read the polling affects of the cabinet confirmation because he was out there tonight today in a rally talking about the cavenaugh nomination and basically leading the crowd in another chance of lock her up. And this time it meant lockup, Dianne Feinstein and investors Sherman. This is the party that claimed that the cavenaugh confirmation procedure should be all about. Due process should be all about the presumption of innocence in the accused, and here is the president going up there out there leading the lock her up chant that he invented. He and his crowd invented, which of course is exactly the opposite of what the Republican party pretended to stand for. Lawrence, you know, one of the things I want to say to everybody who's listening tonight and has friends and relatives and co-workers is that change doesn't come easily. And these numbers are very encouraging for turnover at least of the house come the election for weeks from tonight, but I ran Barbara Makovsky's campaign in one thousand nine hundred eighty six. She was the first democratic woman ever elected in her own right? She and Nancy Kassebaum were the only two women. Senators. We now have more, but I also helped Anita hill in nineteen ninety one. And I came across an old cartoon of specter, Simpson and hatch, all sort of in thug outfits with, you know, battering Rams and whatnot with Nita hill, lying on the floor was a Baltimore Sun, cartoon and the caption was I don't understand why she didn't come forward sooner. My point here is that this is a story that has repeated itself in many ways. As in many times. And so my message to all the viewers tonight who want to see change, who believe there needs to be changed. All the voters that Jen just talked about. If you have early voting, your state go vote. If you can apps and t- ballot vote vote now and if not get out there and vote, if your registration isn't finished yet get ten young people to go out and vote millennials and the pew data are shown to vote less now than any of a similar cohort previously. And so we really need to get out this vote or these numbers will not matter in four weeks and you can rest assured whether it's a summit with the North Korean leader to prove how good a Donald Trump is on foreign policy or jenning up more locker up messages to try to keep his base in rage. He will pull every trick out of the bag. And so we must persist Jason. I have the video here of Donald Trump talking about. Hitter Feinstein in lying about her and attacking her and getting the crowd to chant lock her up about Dianne Feinstein, which I'm deliberately not showing because the only point of it, it's really ugly, political pornography, and but the point of it is the Donald Trump tonight today out there campaigning doesn't seem to realize that getting his people to scream lock her up about yet. Another woman who has done absolutely nothing wrong without any due process is exactly the kind of thing that is stimulating. This democratic enthusiasm. Yeah, but it didn't stop Susan Collins, right? Like like, Donald Trump knows what he's doing here. He knows that there is a a a significant portion of women in America. We're going to support him no matter what he's doing. But I think with these numbers show is something that I had all the long if it took Brett cavenaugh for you to realize that the Republicans are a party of misogyny and supporting accused sex abusers. Then you're really kind of late to the game. I think most people kind of do that already. And his confirmation has just emboldened Democrats even more. But I think it goes deeper than just women being enthusiastic about the party. It goes into the fact that I think Democrats have been beaten down for so long by candidate who they thought they should've beaten two years ago that they've become more strategic..

"He was a general in the army at the time, and the cabdriver was going about ninety miles an hour because he realized what was happening in the back of the car and sort of screech to a halt in front of the our quarters. And I think then I think tower got scared because he thought maybe the general would come out with the shotgun or MP's would get him. But I went in the house that night. I cried all night long. I was absolutely traumatized. I never told my parents or berry until much later several years later because I was so it was shamed and so guilty and I kept thinking, you know, this is must be. In my fault, because why did I go to dinner with him? Why? Why did I go to the nightclub? Why did I let him in the I must have done something to lead him on. I felt that was my fault, and and I've told very few people, but the word got out. And a small group. And when tower after he'd retired, the Senate was nominated by George H W Bush to be secretary of defense. One day the two f. b. i. agents showed up at my house. I was married to Ben bradlee then and they said, we've heard we're vetting tower. We've heard your story about his sexual assault attempt, and we'd like to talk to you about it. And I said, no way, and they said, no, no, but this is going to be confidential totally confidential. I said, are you kidding? Where do you think the Washington Post kessel their stories from guys like you who leak? And I wouldn't talk to them and this was before Nita hill, and so they left. And what happened was the great heroine of this story was die. Nancy Kassebaum. Senator Republican center is the only Republican who voted no on tower and he was defeated. And, and so he for that reason, he was defeated because of this. She had heard my story and. There were other stories too, but when I think about it, I thought, I'm so glad I didn't do it because I could have been Anita hill and Anita. Hill's life has been completely ruined destroyed. She's always going to be the person who was in that hearing having to talk about these disgusting things yet. 'cause because somebody here this say, you know if it's not worth it and survivors of sexual assault don't come forward. We'll perpetrators. Just never be held accountable. Well, you know what I think is that this is obviously most most survivors of sexual assault don't end up in a seer Senate hearing and front of millions of people all over the Klobe having to go into gory details without some kind of a backup and she she didn't get herself into this anymore than Anita hill. Did. I mean both Anita hill was subpoenaed her name, pristine blowzy. Ford's name came out against her, will she didn't wanna be there, but she did it because she said it was her civic duty. What I think is that if I had been Anita hill an, I'd known better, I wouldn't have done it if I've been Christine blowzy Ford, she didn't expect it to go public, but I would have not done it. And even though it's civic duty look at her today, I read a story that she. Can't live in her own house because she has so many death threats, death threats. She's scared for herself. Her life, her children, her family, her entire life has been disrupted, and she's always going to be known as this woman who accused Brad Kavanagh of sexual assault and couldn't prove it. And of course, the FBI investigation was a complete sham because they didn't even interview her or Brad cabin or forty. Other people who came forward and said, we'd like to be interviewed. And so the question is, was it worth it? He got, he got confirmed. He's now a supreme court Justice and she has to go back to her life, which will never be the same again. So I appreciate your time and I appreciate you writing about the your experience. Thank you going up. We have more breaking news scoops tonight from the New York Times which is reporting that Trump campaigned.

"The woman who lived through a Senator tissue examination of sexual harassment claims Anita hill making waves tonight. But they public challenge to the Senate Judiciary committee which grilled her twenty-seven years ago. She writes that the seriousness of sexual harassment claims against Clarence Thomas. We're not addressed by the Senate Senate at the time and the right way. And this time they should deploy a neutral investigative body that can present findings and senators could then rely on those findings. Now that was not how the Senate operated in the Thomas hearings. When critics at the time said the men just didn't get it. The hearings opened Clarence Thomas and Nita hill, and the Senate will all be on trial to hearings will be a face off between Thomas and Anita hill her word against his Republican, Nancy Kassebaum said today that the senate's men just didn't get it. I would hope that we would have recognized it as a charge that head to be taken seriously. Now, one of the men that was accused of not taking that charge seriously Orrin Hatch. And his words then sounds strikingly similar to now we're about to play them along with Chuck Grassley who proclaimed that the expectations for reporting harassment should have happened quicker in a way that frankly, sounds unrealistic and unfair for the me too era. Johnson, a lot of things that just don't make sense to me in Anita. Hill testimony bothers me because it just doesn't square with. I think is, is. Some of the dozen square with what I think is common experience and just basic sentence. Commonsense few think that any of these claims are legitimate. Noah don't lie. I think the, I think this woman, whoever she is next up, if any of our Senate employees had a complaint of sex harassment, that individual would not have the same re remedy that you had available to you professor hill when you weren't employee, it just doesn't make sense that she simply told her friends or acquaintances they, she was being harassed at work and that's it. That's it. And that's it. Well, today, the judiciary committee now has four women. They all are Democrats as compared to ninety one. The Republicans have a committee on their side that remains all men, no gender change since ninety one. That was a democrat Charing that committee, though Joe Biden who has gone on to apologize for his approach to Anita hill, and she reflects on that in a newly released. Never before aired interview. I think chairman Biden really believe that he was acting in a way that was fair to the nominee. And in doing so, I think he completely underestimated that. In fact, he was deferring to power. And to the power of the White House and to the power of his colleagues. And what that meant was that. I would suffer because I didn't have all of those people behind me. I'm joined now by Liel rival gore professor at Harvard's Kennedy School of government as well as Tim Phelps who Washington legal reported editor of the l. a. times who helped break the Anita hill story.
