Biden moves forward with transition as Trump continues to refuse to concede

"That were more in the week removed from Election Day You've had a chance to go through some of the numbers. Anything surprising you but any race or just the overall view. I mean, I thought it odd that the Democrats didn't do. Don't race is fascinated by what happened. Miami Dade County. I wrote about it, you know, in September That Democrats look like they're having problems here that Trump could come on strong but like the total under tow that God created by Trump's candidacy in Miami, He wants flow of Florida's 26 congressional district. You know, the one that extends down to the keys that getting the parcel Powell represents, like he lost that by like 16. In 2016. And here he wanted by a couple of points on that swamp. New Carcel Powell put him in as an office on then the district 27 now In that case, Trump actually lost district 27, but The Jonah Shalala one of losing it, So you know, it's just It's just interesting what Trump did both in Miami Dade and in the state of large, But if you even take out Miami Dade County like Trump won the turnout war. Like motivated more voters, his voters to come out and the persuasion war he appears to have won independence. Like just just just the scope and scale of Trump's win in Florida is is big, especially when compared with the rest of the nation. Now you see what around the Santis is doing like he's got some. You know some proposals to expand the stand. Your ground law allows the use of war force to protect property. Um, Florida's going to become a much more conservative state from a government standpoint. Because I think a lot of Republicans are like Hey, look, you know we don't lose elections here. Voters want what we're serving up. We're gonna give him more of it. Yeah. You think the socialism message worked? It seemed like it Did. I mean, when you have Yeah, it seemed like it then Yeah. What? I've spoken to him. I hadn't used this yet, but you know, he said this elsewhere. Uh, he pointed out, it's you. It's not just socialism. Um, A lot of Hispanic voters, for instance, are working class and They have a sensibility that identifies a lot more with Trump. Then with what the Democrats were serving up, or certainly in Miami Dade County with what Biden was serving up, So, um, you know Rubio is talking about look at you know after Trump has gone assuming he's gone, right? Um, you know, how can the party the Republican Party both in Florida and nationally kind of build on that more working class coalition that cut across racial lines that Donald Trump appeared to have started to assemble. Now again, That's you know, even when Trump leaves, I think I think he is going to leave the White House here. All indications are that he lost, you know, lot indication that is going to run for reelection again. So you know, hang onto your seats for 2024. You know, the blue collar element was never the domain of the Republicans. I grew up in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, and that you want to take a picture. Blue collar Pennsylvania. It's that area and it went big for Trump Trump would once 58 to 42%. I just I couldn't believe it. I looked again Thought What is the big change? Or what did he do to convince blue collar workers that he's on their side? The Republicans are on their side, not the Democrats. Yeah, I think I think some of its culture. I think some of its policy like, you know, certainly In those northern states, the opposition of free trade agreements people have seen, um you know the jobs of old would go away, and they don't think the conventional politics that that Biden represented. Were adequate forum. But it is it is an interesting phenomenon. We're seeing this. The sorting that's happened in American politics is the Democratic Party is a party of intellectuals. Like the good What's a better way to say this? The highly college educated, college educated and um blacks, Latinos and the young and The Republican Party is a party, especially of working class whites, You know, as well as business, So it's those two kind of coalitions how they're they're kind of starting out. Don't know if it's gonna stay that way. But it's making for some interesting politics. Certainly here in this state. Well, obviously nationwide as well, Yeah, that's why Republicans like to use the term of leaders and, uh, the elitists on the left that seems to have stuck to finally the race. January. 5th Georges to Senate seat seems to be hard fought campaign this being natural campaigns. You're wrong about these races this week. Tell us about that. Yeah, well, I mean, Joe Biden. The success of Joe Biden's presidency is gonna hinge heavily on what happens in Georgia because if the two Democrats beat the two Republican incumbents Then the balance of power can be 50 50 in the Senate, and the tiebreaker, there would be Vice President Kamila Harris. So binds ability to kind of move. His agenda really heavily relies on this race. And Republicans know that and they're saying, Look. Yeah, fine. You know, Donald Trump might have lost by 12 14,000 votes here. They think a lot of lot of the anti Trump vote is gonna kind of disappear during a special election. And it's just going to be more about based motivation, and the Republicans think that their base in Georgia is gonna be superior to the Republican base. That they're going to prevail. Now. Rick Scott are senator is now the head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. He's already got involved. He's they've already started running ads in Georgia, pointing out what Chuck Schumer The Senate minority leader from Brooklyn had set on Saturday. Like now we take Georgia and then we're gonna change the world. Well, right Change America. Yeah, he said change. America changed the world twice, so he obviously knew what he was saying. And so that that's that's gonna be front and center is front and center, the Republican messaging saying, Look, you kind of don't want to turn the Senate over to the You know, Brooklynite.

"Us GOP senators have raised their democratic challengers and the national Republican senatorial committee has brought in more than the democratic senatorial campaign committee but reporter Alex Bolton at the hill says third quarter fundraising shows the momentum is beginning to shift he's got an in depth look at the numbers Alex words it shifting what this point there are several several democratic challengers who are out reading the Senate Republican incumbent in the third quarter and in particular mark Kelly the payments your former astronaut on the gun control advocate that he actually outrage the Republicans in a market like Sally in Arizona in the third quarter home in Maine we Sasha UP and the Democrat candidate out really long time on the main center Susan Collins in the third quarter and so there is concern among Republicans that there's going to be a game of of money next year in the battle for the Democrats take back control the Senate now while the national Republican senatorial committee has I don't really democratic counterparts are part of this year the fact that you have so many challengers in particular Gideon is not all that well known out raising your very well known in the trash company is an early warning sign also in Iowa you know pretty close hundreds in battle there so in as well North Carolina so I think what is clear is that the enthusiasm among democratic donor clash and bass and grassroots at at activities in sky high into one of the things of the particular concern justice in our public concede that there's this organization called act blue which essentially hope some you know what kind of people who get a ten dollar donations you know whenever they feel moved to give you the conduit to Democrat can that identifies who the key candidates are and so it's a way for people who don't have a national program to raise millions of dollars another one the the democratic challenger against Mitch McConnell Kentucky he is also raised a ton of money and that's that's interesting because you put out senator McConnell is normally more involved in fundraising for elections purposes but it's got its own back to watch the sun correct that's right now in twenty fourteen he said that he would you know not accept any help from the party but the fact is that the how huge fundraiser for the Republicans with center called the particulars of the so he has to worry about his own race that in that race you know look differently more difficult after that better than the Republican governor just lost reelection to a Democrat also the other and now in twenty fourteen when the calls on ticket you also have a local ratings back then that Bronco Bommel was the was the present incumbent president and that was something that McConnell little used to stand battle with top the top the ticket you know if there is any sort of backlash and maybe even Kentucky that could potentially be working for him but you know right now he he is saying that he he's not concerned about that because if I just think that you can talk you can go very called the company and speak with Alex Fulton senior staff writer at the hill he's written a piece entitled G. O. P. braces for democratic spending on slot in battle for Senate so in some of these cases where democratic challengers are out raising the incumbent Republican senators is this fundraising skills or political momentum in through C. Azamara role both well one of the coming from this act Lou organization so basically the very covering a sophisticated mail online donors network where you know people are getting email identify candidates in the right spot you know given five or ten dollars and that stuff is really adding up and so what we're seeing is that the you know the power of the you know in common she is losing some of the just managing you know what's important that these directed nations to Canada is that the cats can control what to do with the money much more effectively than if you have a third party you know spending you know on on an ad that blanket the state and that is just as much less effective use of money lent can't actually have the money then they can target the ad you know specifically they can appear in the ad and the press the camera you can print and use this money to put together a grassroots organization network of people to knock on doors things like that so that is one eight that court and that's why in fact the money Richmond Kentucky the poor poor and then the the money being raised by the parties pressure is on the Senate right that it has sorry pressures on Republicans in the Senate they have to defend more seats this time around well you know the the what was that you know twenty two seasons and Democrats have twelve the Republic for fifty three seats so they you know they have a three she managed the democratic forty seven no one really thought the sentencing being played this cycle but you know when when trump's approval ratings dropped you know it's just look more in in return for the Democrats now he'd get wild card here is impeachment now what we've seen over the last two weeks actually talk numbers of picked up a little bit as the impeachment hearings circle or not I think the Democrats can look at danger getting into impeachment the key thanks Alex Alex Bolton senior staff writer at the hill twenty minutes now after the hour on this morning Jennifer could shrink is.

"There's one in particular that I really was curious about your response to it as a former FBI official the president attacking the democratic house majority and their desire to do oversight tweeting the morning after the election, if the Democrats think they're going to waste taxpayer money investigating us at the house level. Then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of classified information and much else at the Senate level two can play that game. And then later on he went on his press conference to talk about how the Trump administration it self would be going after that's not just using the Senate against the house. But that's also potentially using the department of Justice and the FBI against the house. What do you think of obviously, that's always the wrong answer in any of these? I do think that the house risks going into becoming the house of investigations throwing subpoenas because they're curious not well-founded that's a risk that that can happen. But I think the president interjecting himself into a process of I will investigate. You that that is a form of intimidation that I think is uncalled for at the presidential level, candidly, just like, I think it's wrong. The Democrats are saying we've got a stack of subpoenas that we're just curious about to me that's wrong too. We've got to get back to a normal operation of these house committees and the president needs to just worry about listen, if he would've talked about jobs and the economy and the things that his administration did do right? I think the election could have turned out very very differently. He didn't he's caught in this trap of. It's really it's not that I win you have to lose. And when he goes through then I think this was a week of frustration. You saw the president venting that frustration in ways. I don't think is helpful to good regular order of really important institutions, the congress of the United States, you're a congress democratic congresswoman, but you're Republican part of Illinois. You're a former investigative journalist that says you want to go where the facts go. Do you have any concerns? Having heard from incoming judiciary committee, chairman Jerrold Nadler that Democrats. Are going to go out on fishing expeditions. Well, I'm not a lawyer. I'm not on the judiciary. But I believe we ought to just let the truth guide us listened to Mike Rogers, and we were talking in the hallway on our our walk down to sit right here with you. He was speaking glowingly about Detrick for Sperber who was the democrat when Mike Rogers was the chair on on Intel. We just need to let the truth guide us. Remove the politics, especially from the intelligence Kennedy. We we need to work together. Democrats and Republicans. I don't think it's that hard when you have reasonable people. And I don't think it's hard to do that. What do you think? I mean that that's from her from her mouth to God's ears. But I don't know. I just look at it from the president's perspective, the president suffered some some losses. That were me unforced errors a lot of suburban Republicans lost because of this president's hyperbole, and and and combative tone. This is an opportunity for him to take a step back and recognize this is going to affect his ability to win reelection. He cannot win states like Pennsylvania, and Michigan, and Wisconsin and other states continuing this, this harsh combative attitude that turns off suburban voters at what the same time not appealing to to minorities. Who I think should be voting for him based upon his record of the economy and what he's doing to create employment opportunities and and at better wellbeing for them. So he he has to do something to change his tone and what he's done coming out of the box is double down on that tone. And that's just a big mistake. Speaking of which another something that I wanted to I wondered what you thought had to do with the president's combative tone. He went after four journalists in particular this week, one of them was Jim Acosta, perhaps the one that was MO noticed the most, but coincidentally or not the other three were African American women..

"If it comes up, we know we're impeachment is a question that will come up down the road, maybe depending on the findings of the mode ministration ended other investigations, we're we're far from that. Right now, you were vocally opposed to the impeachment proceedings against President Clinton, of course, in one thousand nine hundred eight you call them a partisan coup-d'etat, you said that any potential impeachment of President Trump, quote must not be partisan, according to CNN CNN's exit polls from Tuesday seventy seven percent of Democrats support impeaching president. Trump five percent of Republicans. There is a real partisan divide on this issue of impeachment. Does that concern you? Not really because as I said, we're far from that. If we get to the question of impeachment, then one of the tests should be. And I said this repeatedly is the evidence so strong of misdeeds so terrible. That you really believe at the beginning of the process that by the end of the process when all this is laid out publicly, a very large fraction of the people who voted for the president will will will grudgingly acknowledged to themselves anti others that you had no choice, but to impeach the person that's eight test because you don't want the country torn apart in the sense that half the country says for the next thirty years, we won the election you stole. So one question before you do an impeachment is do you think that the evidence of such terrible deeds is so strong that a large portion of the opposition vote base of the president's vote base who'd be convinced by the end of the process, and you're not there yet. You don't see? Anything from? Okay. Well, I see a lot of potentials. But we don't know. That's why we're waiting to see what the special counsel finds. We're waiting to see what fair investigation the Republicans on the intelligence committee on the judiciary committee made sure there was no fair investigation in congress. There will be now, and we'll see what that comes up with what this special prosecutor special counsel's office comes up with and then have to make judgments, I certainly hope that we will not find the necessity for an impeachment. But you can't rule that out a conservative writer overheard you on the train from New York to DC on Wednesday. You're on your phone, and according to her you were detailing a plan to impeach recently confirmed supreme court Justice cavenaugh for alleged short. She was not she was not telling the truth, and I'm not going to comment on a private conversation with a friend. But it's not correct. You have no intentions of trying to or or even discussing potentially impeaching Justice cavenaugh for perjury. No. The only thing I think we do have. No, no, what I think we do have to do is is one of the things that the committee has to do is to investigate the question of the FBI not doing a proper investigation so that because of White House interference. So that we can do whatever is necessary to make sure that in the future investigations are adequate. But you did promise to investigate cavenaugh if the Democrats gain control of the house, right? No. I said that we would look into the question. I just mentioned. Okay. But no no commitments to to investigate. All right. Congressman Jerry Nadler one last question for you. The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, the President Trump was quote involved in or briefed on nearly every step of hush money payments made to two women on his behalf women with whom he allegedly had affairs. Prosecutors have evidence of the president's participation the journal reported if the president is found to have been involved in campaign finance violations that are potentially criminal is that an impeachable offense. That might very well be an impeachable offense. And the question would be aching. You can you prove well, it may be an impeachable offense. If it goes to the question of the president pro procuring, his office through corrupt means, and that could be impeachable and you'd have to see whether. How good the proof of that isn't. Secondly, what else there is? Because the fact that an impeachable offenses committed has been committed does not mean necessarily the ought to be an impeachment. That depends on whether the situation is serious enough that that it makes sense to to to do an impeachment to defend the the the system of government and the system of democracy. And so yeah, that would be a factor that would go into any such judgment..

"Now, if you have issues with county by county election processes, whether it's in Florida or Zona, then I don't wanna stand in the way of you. Introducing legislation saying every state has to do it the exact same way. But if the Republican government, I'm not talking about federalizing elections. I'm talking about the state of Arizona. I'm not talking about federal education. I don't I think federalizing the elections would be a bad idea. I think making sure that as if you're an era Zona that the vote you cast legally counts, I think that's what we're trying to do. That's what was that's the agreement that was reaching Arizona. And I think that's a good outcome. But where's the evidence that anybody was cooking the books? Well, we had evidence that people were treating ballots differently. And again, this is about the integrity of when you go and cast a ballot. You don't expect to yours to be disqualified and under a provision that would allow a ballots to be counted somewhere else. I don't think that's exactly what we're trying to do who's balanced, we're being disqualified. My understanding of the situation is that what happened was America county? They had four emergency voting stations set up in the county. The by the way, it's a county that Joe are pile one. I mean, it's a it's a mixed county. Republicans and Democrats both can win in that county. And that's what happened. It's not like people in Yuma county were not allowed to vote. It's this elections official setup for emergency voting stations throughout the county including in Scottsdale and Mesa which are Republican leaning. Well, I think I've answered the question we just want to make sure that every vote counts. And that every vote legally cast is counted. And that you don't have different standards on signatures verifications of the signatures that might not allow vote to go forward in one part of the state that allows it to go forward and another part of the state. I think we're both interested in making sure that every vote is counted the every person who legally cast is there. That's what this is about. So we're trying to protect the people of Arizona to make sure that whether they cast it in the southeast part of the state or the northeast part of the state doesn't matter counts the same. Well, I think you, and I agree and probably everyone watching every vote that was legally cast by election day should count Senator Cory Gardner. Thank you so much. Really? Appreciate your time. Actually, I'm Jake. Thank you. Next guest has a history of clashing with Donald Trump years ago. They opposed each other over real estate expansion of New York City, and now they're set to clash over well, sky's the limit as House Democrats prepare to exercise their new oversight power and investigate President Trump on a dizzying array of issues. Joining me now is the likely new chairman of the House Judiciary committee democratic congressman Jerry Nadler of New York, mister chairman in all likelihood, thanks so much for joining us. You've been saying that under the Republicans there's been no congressional oversight of the Trump administration. Now that you're expected to be the chairman of the House Judiciary committee. What are the first three things that you want to hold hearings on?.

"And I guess the question is does the NRA think that every single vote legally cast by election day should be counted is that an important principle for you. Every vote legally cash should be counted in every vote legally cash should be counted the same whether it's Miami or Pensacola, we shouldn't have standards that are different in Broward County or a pom county. We shouldn't have somebody who is actually defying the law or court orders. Now, this isn't a question of potato potato here. This is not what we're dealing with. This is the constitution of Florida. That has been violated any court that has said the same. And so I don't take this lightly. We need to make sure that we're protecting the integrity of the of the elector electric in Florida that every vote is counted and to make sure that we protect this from fraud. And that's exactly what we're doing each and every day that we're in Florida with these court decisions and making sure that the law is applied equally across the state the state the Senate race in Arizona is also right now still too close to call. The NRA sent out a press release accusing the top Americo pa- county election official in Arizona of quote using his position to cook. The books. For cinema. That's the democrat in that race. But the Republican governor of Arizona Ducey Republican secretary of state they've all voiced support for the process. We haven't heard any complaints from the Republican Senate candidate congresswoman, Martha mcsally is there any evidence to support that the Maricopa County elections official are cooking the books. Well, I think what what we've seen in Arizona is the tip to make sure like in Florida that we're treating everybody equally under the law. There had been concerned that America a process was being used to determine signatures or validation of ballots that differed from places in other parts of the county the other parts of the state other counties in the state. So whether it was Yuma or America or other places. They were concerned that the Maricopa was holding a standard that was not being allowed to count votes in other parts of the state. So I believe there's been an agreement amongst the counties with the officials there to count everything the same to follow the same procedure. And that's important because you know, a vote that's cast in Yuma. It shouldn't be disqualified under the same provisions that qualifies a vote in Maricopa legally cast vote wherever it is legally cast should count the same not with different standards amongst the offices. I know your organization accused an election official of cooking the books, and I don't see any evidence of any illegality. There are questions about. If you want to get technical here about what emergency voting is and Meera COPA county. The law is very vague Maricopa County set up for emergency voting stations before election day, two of them, by the way in Republican areas Mesa, and Scottsdale and different counties interpret that vague law different ways. That's not cooking the books, and I just I keep hearing the organization chair accused people of breaking the law, and I don't. If you're a voter in Arizona and your cast a vote in Yuma. And you cast a vote in Phoenix legally, you did it the same and your vote in Yuma. Is disqualified your vote in Maricopa is not disqualified is that fair. I deferred to the payer. I prefer to the governor. And the secretary of state of Arizona, they're both Republicans, and they say everything is going according to how it should be going..

"State of the union object tapper. It's deja vu all over again in Florida this week, we're narrow margins of victory or triggering automatic recounts county. Election officials have until Thursday is admit their recounted vote totals in the races for Florida governor and a US Senate President Trump has been working to undermine that process. Calling the effort to count votes a fraud. And then attempt by Democrats to steal the election charges that are not backed up by the Republican Florida's secretary of state or Florida law enforcement joining me now, Colorado Senator Cory Gardner, and he's the chairman of the national Republican senatorial committee Senator thanks so much for joining us a statement from your organization, the NRA says a Florida, quote, it's clear the Democrats goal here is not to count every vote fairly. But the skills an election and a tweet President Trump accused Democrats in Florida committing fraud. Governor Rick Scott, who's running for Senate has made similar comments. Is there any specific evidence at all of anyone committing fraud or trying? To steal the election. Trying to change the outcome. Well, here's the specific evidence. We have we have a court in Florida that has said there was a violation of the Florida constitution. We have court has that has directed. Certain bit. Better behavior out of the Palme county election supervisors we have courts that are saying follow the law that is not being followed. We know they're not following the law. They certainly weren't following the law. They were posting when they were supposed to be about the the results of ballots coming in. They weren't providing the canvas the total number of ballots that had been cast and courts have agreed with us on those points. So I think there's clear evidence that the constitution was violated a court in Florida has said the same. Well, it's true. What you're saying about transparency and its trend of what you're saying. Exactly, right. It's true about transparency and about meeting deadlines. Absolutely, correct. But Florida's department of law enforcement said Friday, they haven't even received any allegations of criminal activity of fraud of stealing and the secretary of state's office just said yesterday, there's still quote, no evidence of criminal activity. So it just seems like the rhetoric we're hearing from what does collation what's violation of the constitution violating the constitution. Does it rise to the level of concern? And Florida it absolutely not saying that I'm saying have people we have people who are actually duplicating ballots, which is allowed underlie if you follow the law, but they're doing it without witnesses without the canvas that they're supposed to. I mean, this is insane. You have you have election officials that weren't even following court orders yet, they weren't in compliance with court orders. And so I think this is a big problem. And what we're trying to do is make sure that we're protecting every single vote in Florida. We're protecting them from the fraud. We're protecting the integrity of these votes. Every vote should be. Counted? But by gosh, not let fraudulent or anti-constitutional behaviour, prevail. Well, this is what I'm taking issue with there is there is a difference between all the things that you're taking issue with which I mentioned to Senator Schumer in the previous interview legitimate areas of concern about the behavior of election officials in Palm Beach county, and more importantly or more specifically in Broward County, but there's a big difference between that and fraud and stealing and theft of an election. And I've covered recounts before I've covered recounts in Florida before typically lawyers for the candidate who's head. They go in and use every legal maneuver they can to prevent votes from being counted..

"That's why even with this. Good economy. Democrats did so well in the election, and there are lots of different approaches to make that happen. There's Medicare for all there's buy into Medicare or Medicaid. There are many other approaches Senator Murray has as a has put forward some and we are United in improving health care at lower costs for Americans. And there are lots of different approaches will unite on an approach and come forward with that. As we move through. The legislative process is Medicare for all not politically a wise approach. I mean A a. big your Senator who was reelected from Wisconsin Tammy Baldwin, she embraced it. Yeah. And show. I'm not what she won reelection in a state that Donald Trump watt. I am not picking one over the other. There are lots of good approaches and the most important thing here is to have democratic unity. We had unity on healthcare back in two thousand seventeen and we were able to preserve the healthcare of thirty million people when we defeated the attempt to repeal the ACA we will come together we have a great caucus in the Senate. And I hope it'll be duplicated. I believe that will in the house where people from Elizabeth Lauren to Joe Manchin come together when we discuss how we can be United in a strong position. And it's worked I think it will work again with healthcare. Well, speaking of your caucus. You watched what happened in the fight for the Republican presidential nomination in two thousand sixteen when more than a dozen candidates ran against each other and beat each other up pretty pretty good. It looks like your party the Democratic Party may face a similarly crowded field in two thousand twenty if not. Even more. So are there any lessons learned that? You'll take into this presidential cycle that you'll caution. Jill LeBron Booker, Warren Sanders, etc. When it comes to democratic presidential primaries. Look, I think we have lots of strong candidates across the political spectrum. My basic philosophy right now is led a thousand flowers bloom. Let's get a lot of people out there. The proposal process. Little like sports. It's almost mystical. You never know who's going to emerge on top. And so having candidates out there, various views all United in the need to change. The course of how the presidency is conducted and of how we help the middle class people Spiring to be in the middle class in a much better way than the Republicans. Have I think Democrats at the end of the day will be United will be United on a candidate who can best defeat Trump? And at the moment. There are many different approaches. Let's see which one proves to be the strongest Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York. Thank you so much for your. We appreciate it. The president here. Good good to have you. The president is accusing officials in Florida committing election fraud. Is there any evidence is there any Republican Senate campaign chair Cory Gardner, Colorado joins me, and he reportedly called himself the best choice to impeach President Trump. So is that his plan? We'll ask the incoming head of the House Judiciary committee next. You know, what's not smart job sites that overwhelm you with tons of the wrong resumes..

"He issued guidelines like that with Jeff Sessions, and Jeff Sessions recused himself Whitaker, should but second if that doesn't happen. We Democrats house. Senate will attempt to add to must pass legislation in this case the spending Bill legislation that would prevent Mr. Whittaker from interfering with the Muller investigation that legislation has has had bipartisan support to Democrats and two Republicans introduced it as you mentioned the there are a number of Republicans who've spoken out that we cannot allow Whittaker to interfere with the Muller investigation. Right. So there's no reason that legislation shouldn't pass and be added to the Bill, but the the majority leader of the Senate Mitch McConnell has expressed zero desire or willingness to have this be voted on in the full Senate. You have the power because of the sixty vote threshold to force this legislation into the government spending Bill or some other mechanism. If you risk shutting down. The government are Democrats willing to do that. Are you willing to risk shutting down the government and not signing a government spending Bill in less? The Mahler protection legislation is included. Look, I believe our Republic there enough of our Republican colleagues who will join us. There's no reason we shouldn't added this avoid a constitutional crisis. And so that is our position if that doesn't happen. We'll see what happens down the road. I don't mean to be skeptical. But why would you believe Republicans are going to join you on this? We have as I said we have bipartisan legislation and a number of Republicans have spoken out. I've spoken to some people are really concerned about this better to avoid a constitutional crisis before it happens and Mitch McConnell said he saw no reason because there's no interference with Whittaker. There is every reason to believe they'll be interference based on what Mr. Whittaker has said. So the thing the world has changed from win Rosenstein. Was in charge of the investigation. And I think I'd believe that many Republicans will find the same. So you've raised concerns about the legality of Whitaker's appointment in a letter that you sent to the White House Friday, but the tat the text of the federal vacancies reform access, quote, if an officer of an executive agency resigns, the president may direct an officer employees of such executive agency to perform the functions and duties of the vacant office temporarily in enacting capacity now, I get that you have objections to Matt Whitaker, but isn't the president within his legal authority to put him in as acting attorney general temporarily well, the constitution requires advise and consent for principal officers. And if the attorney general is in principle officer, who is the constitution would supersede that legislation. It hasn't been tested. There are a number of senators who are looking at a lawsuit. We'll have to see if they have standing. But there are people who do have standing who will pursue this in the courts, and I believe that will be found that Mr. Whittaker cannot be. She put in as a turning general because he has not been approved by the Senate, not only the right thing to do. I think it's the constitutional prerogative as well. There was a test before the supreme court in US Eaton in eighteen ninety eight the court rejected the idea that a temporary fill in for a principal officer needs to be confirmed by the Senate. Yeah. Well, I think in the case of attorney general, it's different. And I think that the courts will side with us if there was ever a principal officer someone in charge of law enforcement in charge of rule of law who has responsibilities far beyond being a partisan such as extreme partisan as Whitaker is this is the instance, and I think the courts will rise to the occasion Democrats are going to have new levers of power in January when your colleagues take control of the house. Now, you have been out warning about a possible constitutional crisis, including on the show this morning from everything you've seen from President Trump's so far should house. Democrats file articles of. Or is that premature look I think we should pursue the ways that we're going about this now as I out lined. I think that the ideal situation, which I hope will happen. I believe our Republican colleagues will join us in making sure it happens is to allow the Muller investigations to go forward to make public what he recommends and take it from there. So that's where I think we should go right now. I step job one avoid interference with Muller..

"Let's talk about the Florida recount going on right now. The Florida Senate election is moving in that direction as are two other races. There Broward County Florida has been plagued with election problems. Not just this year. But in the past the election supervisor has been accused. In the past of illegally destroying ballots in a previous election that the county already missed the reporting deadline this year said in state law, and a judge needed to step in isn't it reasonable for people to have concerns about what's going on in Broward County will look every vote should be counted. And President Trump, and Rick Scott are so afraid of every vote being counted because they think Scott will lose if that happens that they're interfering they alleged massive fraud. That's what Scott's at his own. Republican officials in Florida said there is no fraud it when you vote by mail, it takes awhile to count the ballots because some of the male votes come in on election day, and that's a process that should be transparent. There've been Republican and Democrats in those election places, no one is alleged any fraud. And what now we have a recount, and my guess Trump, and particularly Scott, we'll try to interfere in that recount because they don't want the votes counted, we Democrats we want every single vote counted? That's every. Americans. Right. No matter who they vote for we're willing to abide by the outcome. If every vote is fairly corrected and nothing is interfered with we believe that Bill Nelson will be reelected Senator. If every vote is counted. And that's what Trump and Scott are. So scared of well, I take your point that there hasn't been any fraud or theft proven or even evidence introduced, but do you not understand why some people looking at Broward County say boy that place is a mess. It's run by Democrats. And there have been election problems for a long time in that county. So I have concerns about how legitimate the Countess. Well, wait, a second saying it's going to slowly as one thing saying, you have concerns about how legitimate the count is is another because as you just said, no one has said there's any fraud here and the paramount issue here. The paramount issue is having every vote counted, even if it takes a little longer we should not be rushed into doing this, particularly in an election. That is so dawn close in one other point, Jake even. In Georgia the secretary of state recused himself because he was on the ballot for governor Scott should recuse himself immediately. He has a self interest in jaundice seeing this election, he should be out of it altogether. The president on Wednesday fired. The attorney general Jeff Sessions and appointed Matt Whitaker is acting attorney general this has prompted even some Senate Republicans such as Susan Collins and Jeff flake to call for this legislation to make sure the president can't fire special counsel. Robert Muller, you've supported this legislation for months, how far are you willing to go to support it are you willing to risk a government shutdown to force this into the agenda that President Trump has to sign it will let me say first the appointment of Mr. Whittaker should concern every American democrat, Republican liberal conservative who believes in rule of law and Justice. He's already prejudged the Muller situation. If he if he stays there, he will create a con. Institutional crisis by inhibiting Muller or firing Muller. Even. So congress has to act has to act now, here's what he said. This is amazing. This fellow Whitaker. The new acting attorney general said that there at one point that there was no proof that Russia interfere NAR elections when seventeen intelligence agency said we did he has already outlined how to strangle the Muller investigation cut their funding and other things so we Democrats intend to do two things. I today I am sending a letter along with leader Pelosi and some of the other Democrats who ranking members of their committees in both houses to the chief ethics officer of the Justice department asking him to issue guidelines should Whitaker recused himself from anything involving Muller..

"I if you would've told us a couple of years ago that we'd be as close as we are people would say, we're crazy. They were saying we lose eight to ten seats and. Even the forty votes in the Senate, we had ten states where Donald Trump won the election in two thousand sixteen hours senators one in six of those ten with one still Florida's still in contest and in the three states that carry Trump to victory, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan not only did democratic senators win by double digits in two of them. But Republicans told Trump he couldn't even set foot in those states because he was so unpopular, and so this is a great victory for Donald Trump to claim because he won a Senate race in North Dakota or Indiana Almas airy states he won by nineteen hundred and thirty six percent that shows how weak I'd be very worried if I were Donald Trump and the Republicans about the twenty twenty elections if all they can claim is they want to North Dakota. We greatly regret the loss of wonderful people. Great senators like hide camp and Donnelly. And mccaskill but hardly a victory in those three states is any vindication for the Republican for the route of the Republicans well with all due respect, sir. I is it not true. I mean, I've talked to a number of Democrats in those states who say this is a warning sign for Democrats when it comes to the two thousand twenty presidential election cavenaugh and the caravan they say those messages from Republicans those messages from President Trump enabled people, even like Claire mccaskill who ran a pretty flawless campaign relatively speaking in Missouri to blues decisively, do Democrats not have to come up with a better response when it comes to border security, and did you not get out played when it came to the cabinet nomination? Not just the fact that he's on the court. But also the fact of the politics of it. Well, the bottom line is, you know, the cavenaugh dispute I think helped us more than it hurts us. It's one of the reasons we won the house so decisively. It's one of the reasons we won governorships in so many other states. Because suburban voters who are traditionally Republican came to our side. And if the coalition the old democratic coalition can add suburban voters to it and continue to focus on issues like healthcare, which matter to working class Americans throughout the country. We're going to win a West Virginia the state that Trump won by more votes than any other other than why. Ohm ING Joe Manchin despite President Trump's efforts one and he focused exclusively on healthcare issue, health care of infrastructure and jobs will resonate in rural America in suburban America and in urban America and the way it helped us in twenty eighteen it's been a help us here. I think the president lost more votes because of the cavenaugh issue then gained throughout the country..

"Washington where the state of our union is honoring our veterans while we here in the US express our appreciation to those who serve our nation. President Trump is in Paris gathering with other world leaders to Mark one hundred years since the end of World War One. But the president's trip abroad has not been without controversy this morning. French president Emmanuel Macron delivered. What appeared to be a scathing rebuke of the president's America first agenda as well as other forms of nationalism saying in front of the international gathering, quote, nationalism is a betrayal of patriotisms Saturday. President Trump through swift condemnation after cancelling a planned visit to honor American soldiers who died in the war the White House, citing inclement weather, the White House explained the weather made it unsafe to helicopter and logistically challenging for the president's motorcades and make the fifty mile drive outside Paris. But as images appeared of other world leaders honoring their fallen soldiers veterans and former White House. Aides criticized the American commander in chief for not having a back. Plan to attend the event. President Trump also facing a slew of unfolding crises back home a recount already underway for three races in Florida deadly wildfires ravaging California and warnings from top Democrats about a possible constitutional crisis after his decision to fire attorney general Jeff Sessions and replace him with a critic of the special counsel. Joining me now is Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer. Leader Schumer, minority leader Schumer. I wanna start with Tuesday nights election, big democratic gains in the house and some warning signs for Republicans in the suburbs. But Republicans in the Senate looked poised to grow their majority flipping three blue seats in Missouri, North Dakota and Indiana as well as potentially in Florida, why didn't the democratic message resonate in those states. Well, let me say this Jake. The election was a great victory for Democrats. Taking back the house with up to thirty five seats is you seven governorships lots of legislative races lower state legislative races that we picked up seats. So Trump in the Republicans are trying to say, well, but the Senate showed that we really one nothing could be further from the truth..
