Do you think slavery is differently. A term that is used today. I mean if you look at the conditions they were slavery like conditions. The only differing pot is that some people paid because you do hear stories of people saying that. Incest is what paid and they fall. I think it's nicer to think we didn't have thought is kind of conditions here. And that way are part of a A good country. But you know there are parts of our history.

"pacific islander" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM
"Hub. I'm Karen Miller. Sometimes you're hard at work, trying to solve a problem and you realize you are really, really missing the big picture. An example about 100 years ago, Americans went as they often still do to county offices and town clerks to fill out forms to get married. But at that time, in most places, interracial marriage was not allowed. In this category, and therefore they can get married to this person in this category or you know what's going on. That's more a Gomez. She's a professor at U C L. A School of law. And, she says in the 19 twenties in Los Angeles clerks had a problem. Filipinos were a growing population in the area. But the Philippines, which sits south of Taiwan, north of Indonesia, so it squarely in Asia well, it had been colonized by the Spanish beginning in the 15 hundreds. There was a puzzle because they weren't specifically mentioned in the anti miscegenation laws. So were they going to be treated as Chinese and therefore not able to marry white people, or are they going to be treated? As white and therefore it wasn't going to be an issue. Leon Lampton was the marriage license bureau chief in LA and he was trying to follow a relatively new Californian law prohibiting Asians from marrying white people. But as Gomez suggests, he could not figure out whether Filipinos were Asian. Lampton also had trouble appealing to a higher authority. Some judges that Filipinos were not Asian, and some ruled they were. It's all about discretion, right? And you have these layers of discretion. And ever since we've tried to have laws enforcing these rules about race, we've had all those ambiguities and all those layers of discretion. And then there was a judge. She was probably onto more than he realized when he ruled that, at least in the marriage that he was considering the whole legal dispute was pointless. Everybody was just wasting their time. Here was the judge's reasoning. You know, this Filipino man who wants to marry this woman who is Mexican American and who the court clerk thought was was white. Well, she's actually an Indian, Mexican, and therefore there's no problem because they're both like not white. Laura Gomez is the author of Inventing Latinos. A new story of American racism. In which he argues that Latinos the word and the concept are pretty recent inventions. Of course, it may not being logical that a Filipino man was ultimately able to marry. This woman whose roots in part could be traced back to Spain when he would not have been allowed to marry a woman whose roots trace back to let's say France this idea of categories who is a race and who is not? How do you categorize people? How do people identify themselves? All of those dynamics They're kind of more in play. They're kind of more fluid than we typically think they are. But at this moment in the 21st century, when Latinos are they single largest minority group in the US About triple the Asian population about 30% larger than the African American population and on track to grow a lot in the next few decades. It's worth asking. Where does the term Latino come from? What does it mean? Gomez argues. It's an invention that has been used to create real political and social hierarchies, though it didn't get embraced in a big way by the government until the 19 eighties. Still, it's an invention nonetheless. So the anti ceded to Latinos is really the concept of Hispanics and you see both of those terms still used today, depending on where you go. For example, in Texas, they use Hispanic more than Latino but California they use Latino more than Hispanic and Different newspapers of record will have their style manual say, Okay, this is the term we're going to use or not use. But both of those terms whether it's Hispanic or Latino. They both have this idea in common that They're an umbrella group and that there are these subgroups Mexican American, which is 70% of all Latinos is one subgroup Puerto Ricans. That's another 10% and the various groups from Central America and so forth. Those are all Those national origin groups that come under that umbrella term in the way that we say Asian American right, which obviously captures people from a bunch of countries and we say, Native American One tribe is not the same as another tribe. But we're still linking those people together. And what I conclude is a racial context because of the history. That has happened and because of the political dynamics at play. Why did you use the word invent? Because I think you know when you're of a moment, people are like, Well, these are the categories. These have always been the categories. These are entrenched. Why? Why use that word? Invent right precisely to pick up on that dynamic that we're talking about Carol, which is this? This notion of a category is not set in stone. It's socially constructed. That means that they're going to be changes and what we think of either the name of a group or what is in that category. For example, we have the category white, you know, And today we think, okay, white people. That includes Italian Americans that includes Jews that includes Eastern Europeans, but at one particular point in U. S history, Whiteness did not include those groups. Those groups were at the margins, and so when I use this notion of inventing Latinos, what I'm getting at is that There comes to be a particular kind of political and social need in the U. S. To start talking about this group of Latinos and some of those pressures come from within the Latino group themselves, and some come from outside it and all of this kind of coalesced at this moment. Um, to pressure the federal government to in the 1980 census begin counting Latinos for the first time. As a group, right? And so that's that moment crystallizes it. So if we could like teleport from, you know, like the 20 twenties to the 19 twenties, and we started talking to people about Latinos, would they know what we were talking about? No. Okay. No, It just wasn't It wasn't a It wasn't a term that had meaning. Even today is not necessarily a term that has meaning anywhere. But the United States Because if you go to, you know to Mexico, or you go to El Salvador. You don't need to make that distinction between who's Latino and who's not that has salience in in our society, right? But in the 19 twenties you would have you would have heard people talking about themselves and other people talking about people who were Mexican. That would have been the terminology that you would have heard right. It's interesting because so often when you hear over here, comments or discussion about politics about culture, we talk about groups of people white black Latino. But if you look at the 2020 census, which is How we count people how we are very officially divide things and you look under the race question. The choices in the 2020 census were white, black or African American. American Indian er Laska Native Asian Or native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander. You kind of notice something missing there. Um, there is a space called some other race and you can write in something about yourself. But like, what do you make of those choices? I'll just say it again. White. Black or African American, American, Indian or Alaska, Native Asian or native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander. Right. So what you've just described is the census raise question. Let's refer to it that way, right? But there's also what is called the Hispanic ethnicity question in the census. And it was always very confusing to people and very frustrating. I'm one of those persons who would be really frustrated by like I don't see myself in those categories, right? And I'm not alone in that, because if you look over from 1980 when we first started asking that quote unquote Hispanic ethnicity question to what we predict for 2020, and because this has been so robust, we know that this is going to be the case about 40% of all Latinos. Check that. Last box that you mentioned, which is some other race, So they just look at all these choices. White black. Whatever they say. No, I don't see it. Not here. Yeah, That's right. I'm not white. I know that. I'm part indigenous because of the colonization of Indigenous people in the Americas by Spanish colonisers, But I'm not going to say I'm Native American, right? I know that I have African ancestry. Probably because I know about the slavery that happened in under Spanish colonialism when 12 million slaves were taken from Africa to the Americas, but I'm not going to say I'm black. And now another big chunk of Latinos says that they're white. But if you actually talk to those people either in surveys, or you do follow up, innit phone interviews or in follow up surveys? What you find is those people who say that they're they say they're Hispanic or Latino in the first question, And in the second question, they say that they're white. Their claim to whiteness is what we call soft like they really don't know where they belong, like they're saying they're white, but they don't think of themselves as white. So, for example, in one study That a sociologist from the University of Florida and Nicholas Vargas tested. He found that something like 2% of those who said they were white. Also said other people see them as white. That's really interesting. So those people who are saying that they're white are kind of it's a default like they don't really think that people think.

"Of saying no. You can't come to my house and drink. I know that makes me uncomfortable. But i'm i'm happy being the parent because it's my job to be the uncle. It's my job to have my kids. Say i can't believe you know you're so terrible. All my friends are doing all these great things. And you don't let me do anything Yeah that's what it means to be an adult. That's what it means to be a parent. And i think we are mistaking in many cases. You do want to hear. of course this is. This is a democracy. The voices of everybody should be included but at the end of the day we have representative democracy. We have leaders elected into these positions for a reason because it is their job to make sense of the mess. It is their job to try to take all of these voices and competing storylines whatever and put some structure around it and that has completely collapsed because instead what leaders have been doing is they've been sucked into the same short term thinking that the rest of us have right to be star today. I wanna get the adoration from cable tv and the internet. And all of those other things the viral tweets. I wanna be a viral. Meme a good viral name way right and that is that's a challenge on the other hand it's also and i. I think you do this really well on your show but is the appreciation that just because things are messy doesn't mean that it's bad right. I mean you. And i wouldn't be allowed to host our own shows not that long ago and by allowed meaning that the that the people in charge of right the the gatekeepers let only certain people into this process of telling the stories of america and politics and so it's great we have more voices than ever. We have more perspectives than ever. Which again makes it messy. But messy isn't always bad. It's bad when no one is there to help. Just give it some structure not to say right. You know right. That's again a good parent just puts structure in place of that p that that your kid knows where the boundaries are right and everything else can sort of grow from there and so look. I think we've seen some people step up as leaders. We talked about it a lot on my show of the special last week. Those folks who are not. They're not famous people. They didn't get into politics to be. You know the big name in in sparkly lights. They were local elected officials board of elections folks people who are working at the polls like those were some of the the people who stood up and did as you pointed out like the they served as those guardrails that we expected that the republicans who stood up and said it's it's not okay. What's happening right now. Right you cannot have a president states say these things and we just sort of brush it. We can't can't do that and they of course they're all being punished by their own party but those things do make you recognize that there still is enough of what is good and important about political leadership that is alive and well. So let's turn the spotlight on ourselves a little bit and you know the media. If you won't the media and i'm doing air quotes here Was the target of much political. Hire a particularly under the trump administration But some of the criticisms of the media's political coverage were also warranted. I think a lot of folks didn't quite understand what was happening early in Donald trump's administration and and sort of had to figure out and grapple with old ways of thinking to really Address this really in many ways can say unique presidency. But i wonder if you see here we are about to start or we've already started under a new administration that is attempting to right the ship if you will at all levels in terms of decorum presidential you know expectations etc. But what about the political. Are you excited that there is a future that this that the political journalists have sort of taken the knock that they needed to take understood the criticism and are prepared to move forward. It's hard question right. I mean this was the real impetus for the show in the first place had just been so frustrated by so much political reporting had become generating rage rather than seeking to explain you know covering the loudest most controversial voices instead of the people who are actually doing the work focusing on so much of the politics instead of the policy. And i don't know that we've gotten any better in terms of sort of the tradition. We're going to call it. I'm doing air. Quotes to traditional mainstream. political reporting Is still so focused on the personalities. And on the controversies now in some ways that's inevitable because that's what sells right Writing a thirty thousand word opus on the intricacies of our health care law is not going to get you very far in terms of you. Know the number of clicks. You need to prove to your bosses that you're worth the money that they're paying you and so it becomes sort of a self fulfilling prophecy. I guess what. I would love to see instead is for all of the really smart creative folks who are here in dc or in new york if they could be employed in sacramento or oklahoma city. Or you know these state capitals where big things are happening. Where important decisions are being made. We need more of that And they're there they are there but it is still difficult to to break through and so the more that with the politics that they may walter the more that you focus on these. I think it helps. You know we got to accept the messiness. This is the beauty of our system. Right it is messy. It was designed to be messy and to be okay with messy. It's just not okay when there's not somebody there to help at least assure you that the messiness is going to be contained in some way shape or form and right now those folks whose job is to help guide us have have really abandoned their posts. You however amy.

Now this is of course for the titles that they've deemed okay on the platform that they are still keeping but they have to make sure that they show a You know something at the beginning credits that say well. I mean we're not gonna delete these but just no. We do not appreciate harmful stereotypes. This of course is coming. After disney's already said they redo pirates of the caribbean ride. They're gonna redo jungle cruise. they're gonna redo all these things. Because it's racist which. I think the people who may be racism in these rights are actually the racist themselves. One hundred percent racists hypocritical. Sarah what i'm hearing you say. The disney has the ability to filter what children's see and don't see actually do have the ability. Is that what we're seeing if it's about racism or systemic racism or gender fluidity or who knows what other crazy left but when it comes to child pornography and sexual content to children plate. The for three just we. We don't control it guys. We just really have no. It's the parents job. So you're actually telling me. So now. I want to this is. This is what i want to see happen in this country. When this kind of information comes out i want to see the conservative christian or non christian rise up and call these bastards. Sorry all right to the game and say oh so you can so you can filter so you can tour peter pan off for my kit but my kids got to watch. Who knows what else right on your own. Then you can turn that off to right. This is where the fight needs to go. We really wanna fight. Take the fight to them because they will snare themselves. A liar can walk straight. They don't even remember where be focused. Look at their own words and okay. There's our hook now. We need some to some mama bear's in a conservative. Okay thank you very much for that little opening right. Let's go after right and let's push because that's what they do. They sink their teeth into a subject. And they just don't let up there like a dog on a bone and they'll go go go go go into the gender neutral bathrooms and target. Why because the pressure. We never pressure sarah true. That's the problem. We have is considering all we we talk about it. No action to put points on the board Fight cashmere thoughts very angry. Very angry built no. I think i'd feel everything that you're saying. I feel bad about it. Peter pan is like one of my all time favorites. I think i. I don't know how to say this without. It's coming out weird. But i think it's good for children to learn about racism in the way that it is wrong right and so when they watch these things and they go. Oh look The character in this show was teased because they were black. And you go yeah. That's a great teaching moment. Oh look how the other characters came help. That said it's bad to treat someone that way because of the color of skin. Why are we afraid to tell our kids about racism all these types of things to teach them. This isn't what we do and all how come they they can. What was i. Don't even know the name of the film that came out but it was a new disney wanna though like while we have gender fluid character or trans character or something like that. How come you can teach my kid about. I don't believe in that. I don't believe in gender fluidity i'm not. I don't wanna teach my kids about that. So you're deciding to teach my kids about sexual orientations and brings which is a very mature thing but not about. Oh this character look silly.

I saw this kind late. And i was like we have to have this for the show. joe biden of course tackling the very important issues plaguing the country right now like systemic racism and inequity and we know that the biden administration is very very focused on equity An equal outcome But biden says that now is the time to address all of these things and xenophobia toward not. I didn't hear black people or hispanics it's like asians and pacific islanders. If in case you didn't know if you are one of those people now you know that you have been discriminated against. Here's joe biden explaining it to you. We did last week to expand tribes access to strategic national stockpile for the first time to ensure they receive help from the federal emergency management agency fema to fight this pandemic today. I'm directing federal agencies to combat resurgence of xenophobia particularly against asian americans and pacific islanders. That we've seen skyrocket during this pandemic. This is unacceptable and it's un-american. I've asked the department of justice to strengthen his partnership with the asian american pacific island community to prevent those hate crimes. I've also department of health and human services to put out best practices for combating xenophobia and our national response to covid look and a weeks ahead. I'll be reaffirming. The federal government's commitment to diversity equity and inclusion and accessibility building. On the work we started in the obama biden administration. That's why i'm rescinded. The previous administrations harmful ban on diversity and sensitivity training and abolish the offensive counterfactual. Seventeen seventy six commission a lot to unpack in that short clip. But joe biden. He says it's skyrocketing the amount of cases racism against pacific islanders and asian americans. I personally have not seen that have have you do. I didn't see it. In fact at the beginning of all the coronavirus though was the go hugging each day. Go into chinatown like it. But i thought from what. I've been hearing from the left. Was that the people that were most affected from. Coronavirus was the black communities because Obviously the left took away the businesses and everything and then the black lives might abundance down here so i was thinking that it was the black communities that was suffering the most. I feel like the asians actually a really successful in this country. Yeah i could be wrong. But i've statistically speaking i you said the the stats back you up on that It is interesting to. I mean but again this is just who can we pander to today you can we get to think. Well we're on your side. Were just one of you fighting for you. Guys you pacific islanders. Who really have nothing to do with something to the pacific island has come out and say. Hey joe biden seriously. We've been feeling really hot by. This is yet to northern native american. Say hey we don't like the washington redskins logo this same kind of nonsense. He sits so much in that clip that it would take him a hundred years. He's capacity and pace to do what he just said. He was going to do next week in the coming weeks. Now you're gonna take you a decade to get through what you just said. I don't even know that he knows what he's saying. Literally is who do we pick next the polynesian islanders. Let's get on in here and her tribe. And maybe the raucous happy in hollywood and this is insanity heads or tails. Exactly all right. Who has it heads your point to the black community they got what they needed from the blackout. Yes thank you. Yeah you gotta move on. So it's almost like he's going around the ethnic wheel right but watch when we come to the caucasian. They'll skip them right right. You're white guy. Joe okay no matter how you play whatever. You do your caucasian men. And if i say if there's a profile community in this country the moment it's caucasian community so white community and you can deal with that any way you want to win less than anybody going national stage and said. Do we have some underprivileged white kids in this country that would be yes. Do we have some whites. The foster care system The have school choice that the answer would be. Yes then you wanna talk equality at this side of your mouth coming cockamamie nonsense out of that side of the amount. I just miss all of it. It's literally picking who have. We not abused yet for power Some money attached to this. You watch what. I wanna really ask him. If you want to talk about native americans. Okay joe why did you go. Form some coalitions with the bi. The bureau of indian affairs. What did you go do something really tangible.

Travelers from south africa is is is black travelers straight and it's it's like seasonal which by the way i was told by i think joe biden and his very people that shutting down travel from and two countries is very racist zena phobic speaking of the nfl big.

Let me let me stop you on this, though, because I saw something yesterday and I looked it up while you were talking. Um Yes, there are pyromaniacs. Yes. Every year when there are fires in the West, they always arrest people. That are somehow get their jollies by setting a fire. I haven't seen any of the people that have been arrested is not a large number of that. They're tied in any way to these protest organizations and the it's a lot of it is coming out of Q and on. And I'm sorry. Q. Anon is nothing but false conspiracies. It is raysy how people are buying into their stuff. And so you've got the sheriff's in Jackson County, Oregon and Mason County, Washington, You got firefighters in Washington state, the firefighter's union. Saying, Please know this sees these are unsubstantiated. They're asking Facebook to try and shut these things down the FBI's office in Portland. Tweeted out on Friday that these reports are absolutely untrue. So it's it's be spread by Q and on, But you have There are pyromaniacs, but I don't think From these. We got all kinds of different police and fire. Organization, saying it's just not true. So well is a couple of facts, so don't you find it interesting that literally as soon as Portland's finally has stopped riot thing Literally a day or two later, some of these fires Iraq, That's one fact that that's not even open to conjecture on the, uh The fact is a large number of these fires. No, Listen, I'm a little you know, for the blue. I'm absolutely for the police. Part on incredibly large percentage of these fires erupted within 20 miles of up in the States five, which is the main North self rode up and down organ in Washington those just to fact that very, very interesting at this particular time. Yes, there are pyromaniacs, but but I would be very when the police, multiple police organizations and fire unions and firefighters. And the FBI are saying it's no Ah lot of them were caused by lightning. Some of them have been set. There was a huge fire. One of the fires in California was Ah party that they were having a gender reveal party that they had some sort of pyro. Activity Pyro, you know fireworks, and it set off a fire, so I I don't know as much as I would love to. Point the finger at some of these same people have the writing stopped in Portland. I've lost track. You know, it's no If it has wound down and nothing. There are just literally the normal state of affairs in Portland, which is somebody's always upset about some something or someone. I wonder if I wonder if it's because the media Left because they had to go cover the fires. Because there's nothing better for television. Then then flames that that's that's made for TV. So all the TV crews have to go to the fires. I wonder if that's part of it, too. It could be part of it. And in no way am I saying all of these far? Ah, created by these people? I'm not saying that I'm just saying a good percentage of these fires. Erupt. It was in 20 miles off I five and a number of people. I believe it's three or four were found with nor the only flammable material but interesting to put it. Mildly documentation and other material in their vehicles. I certainly agree there are pyromaniacs in the West every year Paradise California was last year and was awful as you would not. Yeah, yeah. I, um there's there's Look, there's all kinds of crazy people out there. I the whole thing's a tragedy it it's huge. I mean, I I know The other thing that's happened is they got a lot of news crews, of course on the Gulf because of the damage being done by now. Tropical Storm Sally. The flooding is TV crews go to where the tragedies are and the tragedies what I find I hate to say this for those ofyou living on the gulf. I mean, so if your house gets flooded There are things that are damaged, but with a fire. You have nothing left. Nothing is just ash everything that you own. And if you think about that, I don't care if it's an old pair of shoes or a momento from Grandma. They're all gone. There. Just all gone, But well,.

"Have died from covert nineteen please know we share your heartache and we keep you in our thoughts and prayers ninety two percent of the people who have died from covert nineteen had underlying health conditions so as a reminder if you have an underlying health condition including asthma COPD or cancer please do your very best to stay home avoid close contact with all others as much as possible and at the very first sign of illness contact your health care provider I want to talk for a minute about the data we've been collecting on deaths by race and ethnicity and by community poverty levels for the eight hundred and sixty five people who passed away where race and ethnicity data has been identified thirty seven percent are Latin axe twenty eight percent are white eighteen percent are Asian fourteen percent are African American one percent are native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander and one percent identified with another race or ethnicity in order to better understand what these numbers tell us we create a rate per one hundred thousand people in each of these groups this allows us to compare across the population groups and when we do that we find that among African Americans the death rate is thirteen point two per hundred thousand people and this is significantly higher than the mortality rate of all other races and ethnicities for people who identify as Latin acts the death rate is nine point eight for people who are Asian the death rate is seven point nine and for people who are white the death rate is five point seven and when you look at this data by community poverty levels we see that people who live in areas with high rates of poverty had three times the rate of deaths for covert nineteen sixteen point nine per hundred thousand people when we compare them to people who are living in communities with very low poverty levels where the death rate was five point five per hundred thousand people this data is deeply disturbing and it speaks to the need for immediate action in communities with disproportionately high rates of death and this would mean increased testing better access better access and connection to health care and support services and more accurate culturally.

"The Asian Pacific Islander caucus chair as she told our morning edition host there wasn't much training I got access to the app on Friday evening and we were just given access to the Appan told you know play around in there a little bit and that was about as much training as we got joining the easiest guy to talk about cyber security and elections is Betsy Cooper with the Aspen Institute welcome to the program thank you so much happening so what were the questions people had going in for the makers of this app which at first I gather people didn't even know who was right so we were actually trying to investigate this in January and we couldn't get any information whatsoever about who was making the app or how it had been tested I think some of the questions were well the app work clearly not as expected do you people know how to use it did they get adequate training in advance doesn't do the numerical calculations correctly and then of course is it secure or will it be as susceptible to cyber attacks we know that the I was the party has said look this isn't a hack is it too soon for them to say something like that I mean as someone who works in cyber security what do you make of the explanation so far I mean I would be quite skeptical of knowing for sure that there was no hack I'm sure that they are investigating that deeply and it you know they may be able to identify the cause we don't have that full information at but I do believe that there are lots of different reasons someone could try to access be abit could be to collect information it could be for intelligence gathering so it would be very hard to know at this early stage whether there is any unauthorized access on back and then we said for now they're saying look we just had problems with how it was working I don't know if you know anything about shadow but is there is a scenario where this could have worked so I think that there is definitely the possibility of using the online tools to enable and facilitate elections but in this case the testing was insufficient they clearly I had not done sufficient testing to determine even that the numbers would be calculated correctly and so the only thing that seems the situation is that they had paper backups ready in order to be able to actually verify the votes this could have been an even bigger disaster if those people back ups were not available Nevada says they're not going to use it for their caucuses does that make sense I mean for people to back away from this kind of technology all together I I don't think we should say never but I do think in this particular case Nevada is making a smart decision clearly the app is not ready for prime time and so let's only go through this once in this election cycle in their apology they also apologize for the uncertainty quote it's because the candidates their campaigns and democratic caucus goers what else is on your mind regarding the twenty twenty elections well obviously there are number of states that don't have paper back ups and so in that is deeply disconcerting especially now that we've seen that it may not be just due to hacks that we should be concerned but just due to user error and not to having the app set up correctly I think we also need to be aware of sort of the cyber security ramifications more broadly in our elections clearly there are lots of people who care deeply about influencing the way that our elections are working and this is just a very early sign that it's not going to necessarily be smooth throughout the entire process that's Betty Cooper a cyber security expert with the Aspen Institute thank you for your time thanks so much for having me tomorrow the Senate will vote on two articles of impeachment against president trump today NPR sat down in New York City with a man very much in the middle of the Ukraine scandal the president's personal attorney Rudy guiliani and PR justice correspondent Ryan Lucas was in New York for the interview he is now in our studio here either art some guiliani's specific role in the Ukraine scandal if I can boil it down to a sentence has been pushing the Ukrainian government to investigate Democrats the Senate votes tomorrow on these two articles of impeachment against the president but what is truly I have to say about that we sat down with him this morning at his apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan our colleague morning edition host Steve Inskeep let this interview and we asked Giuliani about whether he views what at this point is pretty certain to be a Senate vote to acquit the president whether he'd use that as vindication and here's what Giuliani said absolutely the total vindication some of the senators know why they're doing it some of the center of the daughters of the president's completely innocent it did exactly the right thing exactly one American president should do no not all Republican senators view an acquittal in quite that same light senator Lamar Alexander for example has described the president's actions as inappropriate and he said that he hopes that trump won't do something similar in the future Giuliani he pushed back on the notion that the president acted inappropriately at all no Lamar's wrong and the more as a good friend of mine and he's a fine man except you know all the facts he only knows after the fact rain guiliani sounding very confident there that he has all the facts but with with with the trial drawing to a close tomorrow is guiliani is moving on not at all not at all the Senate may be ready to have you crying in the review mirror Giuliani says he is not done he says he's going to keep on investigating here's a bit of an exchange that he had was Steve about that am I still investigating until they're seeking more invest more information I get more information and a lot of it comes to me are you doing that on the authority of the president of tell me not to do it this is me not to do it now the president never told him not to do it now we asked the White House about this whether the president wants guiliani to continue investigating biting the White House has not responded guiliani recently launched a podcast of his own he's using that to present what he says is the evidence that he's gathered now he claims that this is a clear cut pays a clear cut case of wrongdoing by Biden I asked him in that case whether he's provided his information to the justice department so that it could look into his allegations and what he's collected in here's how he answered that I can answer that but I am not I would it we would be privileged material I can't tell you if I did I did do something with it just part just phone up be happy if I answer that question now I asked the justice department about that it's going to comment but during the impeachment inquiry US officials who testified in house hearings said that they had no knowledge no knowledge of an official justice department request to help Ukraine for investigating the buttons separate from the bidens separate from president trump does guiliani seem worried about his own potential legal troubles a couple of his associates in the in the Ukraine affair love pronouncing your firm and they have been indicted a separate matter but it still is truly only worried she is not part Austin Freeman of course are the two individuals who helps guiliani gather information in Ukraine a part also turned over some of the materials that he gathered some of the is communications and whatnot to Congress those were cited in the impeachment trial up Parnassus said that he wants to tell the truth he hasn't ruled out possibly cooperating with federal prosecutors in Manhattan and it's those same prosecutors who are scrutinizing guiliani now Giuliani says no he's not worried about partners he says partners doesn't know anything and guiliani says that he himself hasn't done anything wrong and guiliani says that he has been contacted by prosecutors at this point he says he's offered to sit down with them and answer any questions they might have but he says they haven't taken up taking him up on it thus far fascinating thank you right thank you and here's Ryan Lucas he was in New York today for that interview with president trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani lots more that conversation with Steve Inskeep will have it on tomorrow's.
