Seven Republicans joined Democrats voting to convict Trump, making it the most bipartisan vote in the history of presidential impeachments. But the former president welcomed his acquittal, saying in a lengthy statement that his movement has only just begun. Thinking his lawyers and his defenders in Congress while promising supporters he'll have more to share in the months ahead. But back in the Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer said Republicans who voted to acquit would rue this day January 6th. Will live as a day of infamy in the history of the United States of America. Failure to convict Donald Trump will live as a vote of infamy in the history of the United States, Senate, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell explained. In his view, the Senate has no power to convict and disqualify a former officeholder who's now a private citizen. But he had harsh words for Trump and his actions. This was on intensifying crescendo. Of conspiracy theories. Orchestrated by outgoing president who seemed determined. Either overturned the voters decision or else Torch. Our institutions on the way out, and he insisted the former president but still liable for everything he did while he was in office. I'm Ben Thomas AP News

"In less than a week. That's Monday, a week from yesterday. The House impeachment managers will go to the floor of the United States Senate. And with Patrick Leahy, presiding over the trial of former President Trump United States Senate will start an impeachment trial the likes of which we really haven't seen, and it's really dangerous game that the Senate's playing Now. Late last week, the Senate held a vote. Rand. Paul gave an impassioned speech about how the constitution is pretty clear. That the authority of the Senate Is to impeach and remove a president. Donald Trump is not a president. Donald Trump has not been president since approximately noon on Wednesday, January 20th. That's not stopping the Senate from proceeding ahead, even though after Senator poll made his really Fantastic speech. There was a floor vote. And that vote indicated that at least 45, if not closer, to even 50% of the Senate. That actual serious constitutional concerns. Over the trial of a former president. Because there was some concerns about trying a former president. Chuck Schumer, who is determined In fact, I would have not always Chuck Schumer in the Democrats adamantly convinced that they what they must do is they must squish Donald Trump like a bug to ensure that he can never, ever ever even think about Running for president again. Let alone exercise any control over the Republican Party, which I find fascinating because, you know I kind of liked the fact and I don't make any bones about it that I kind of like the fact that Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer kind of running the Democrat Party. But do I have any say in who runs the Democrat Party? No, I don't. Chuck Schumer in that gang, have any control or influence over who runs the Republican Party? No, they shouldn't either. Here's what's going on now Senator Tim Kaine. From Virginia has added another controversy. Do this impeachment force by Trying to figure out a way to prevent Trump from ever running again. And he wants to invoke the 14th amendment. So with a snap impeachment trial. Retroactive, retroactive active Senate trial. The country with need Another constitutional controversy. Just kind of like we need. I don't know Another game stops scenario. According to singer Cane. His century resolution would make to find things that one it wasn't insurrection. And to the President Trump gave aid and comfort to the instructions that you notice. There's a there's a slightly different Wording of the language. The impeachment article. Says that Trump inside it insurrection. In other words, Donald Trump went out and specifically said to the hooligans that you know the day before I decided to go out and hide pipe bombs on the Capitol grounds that Donald Trump somehow knew. That those dumb ass is were doing that the day before. And that even though the siege of the capital had already started long before Donald Trump Finished his speech. The impeachment article. Clearly states That the reason they're impeaching Donald Trump. Not the president, but a former president, which is not in the Constitution. Is that he incited an insurrection. So I think seeing the writing on the wall that That impeachment. Articles going to fail and Donald Trump once again be acquitted by the United States Senate. Tim Kaine is trying to figure out okay, Can we do something else? So now it was an insurrection and that President Trump gave aid and comfort to the instructions. What did you do? Did you think of food propped up to Capitol Hill? And so I'm hot dogs. Did he pass out water bottles tomb? You didn't do anything. He finished his speech. He went back to the White House. Now, while this would be a workaround oven unattainable impeachment conviction. Tim Kaine claims that he would defend it as part of the authority of Congress over any citizen under the 14th amendment. Problem is that has never been used never been used. To disqualify a former president. But I don't think it's clear constitutionally that Congress has any sort of cart walk authority to borrow citizen from office. Just a simple majority vote. You know most most qualifications for office are pretty clear. Usually have to be of a certain age. You have to meet certain residency requirements. I mean to be president. You have to be 35 years of age and you have to be your resident of the United States for 14 years prior to being elected. If you want to be a congressman, that's that forth in the Constitution. If you want to be a state senator, you want to be a governor. You wanna be a state rep You want to be a dog Catcher will be a city council. You whatever it might be. There's usually some for the constitutional provision, or at least a statutory provisions that sets forth what those requirements are for you to be told that office No, the Constitution So anyway, we forgot about the Constitution says. Let me wrap up the whole idea of qualifications. Those qualifications to become president. Clear and unambiguous in the United States Constitution. Shalva attained the age of 35 years and been a resident of these states. Report at least 14 years. Boom. That's it. There's nothing else you could be male female. You could be You can identify is whatever you want to. You can be straight. Gay doesn't it doesn't make any difference. 45 years. 14 years, a resident. And that's it. So for the United States Senate Stepien nail and say that somehow under the 14th amendment that they're going to disqualify any individual Let alone a specific individual, which would almost actors a bill of attainder, meaning that you don't like something that somebody did. So you're going to after the fact declare that act to be a crime. That's essentially what the Senate's doing here. The Senate thing. We don't like this guy. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna decide through a century measure that he could no longer hold office. He could never run for president again. I don't think that's gonna pass constitutional muster. We'll have. The other problem is the Constitution refers to individuals determined to have engaged in treasonous acts. Under that theory would be relatively easy to teach, you know, to disqualify somebody from office to clear him a traitor. But it would still be difficult to lift their electoral disappointment. If they were actually found guilty of treason. Constitution sets forth of the penalty for treason is death. But of course, the way we carry out the death penalty in this country means that if you were 35 years of age and 14 years, a resident you might be 70 years of age before they finally get around to give me the juice. But the other problem with Somehow trying to disqualify former President Trump from holding office. Besides being a bill of attainder Would be that you had, you would have to declare him a traitor. An act of treason. But even then it's gonna be kind of hard T kind of Enforced their electoral disbarment. That would also fit the burden of the super majority from a protection for the accused in impeachment trials into a barrier for those that are just disenfranchised by Congress. I imagine, you know, it's been It's been 16 years. 6 16 years. Since I left Capitol Hill left the White House. Because we have such a low turnover of people. There are probably still people up there. They like to keep me out of office. I still have to get past my wife, which is not gonna happen. I think Senator Kane. It's pretty open about his motivation for an alternative that would impose a similar consequence. But no trial. No. Two thirds vote. Seems highly improbable to me and highly unconstitutional. Let's see whether enough the traffic's.

"Matheson is just seconds away. He's the opinion editor of Desert News. Former chief of staff too. Senator Mike Lee. We're talking about the impeachment this morning and I I would think almost a game changer with something that happened last night, so we'll get to that. Just few seconds also later on after Boyd, I want to dissect. What Governor Mike DeWine had to say yesterday in his conference about outlining what has to happen. I mean, this has to be, you know, music to the ears of those that have a bar or restaurant. That have been having to deal with this state curfew. But he now is a game plan for the state's curfew to be reduced or even eliminated in a span of what 2 to 3 weeks here, So we're going to get all of that done for you? It looks like there is more snow on the way. Maybe tomorrow. Nothing like by the way, what with the West and the Midwest is getting that we're not going to get dumped on. I can assure you what a welcome Boyd Matheson with us this morning on news radio 16 w. T. V, and he is the opinion editor of Desert News, former chief of staff Senator Mike Lee Boyd. Good morning. Thanks for joining us. Hey, Brandon. Great to be with you Appreciate what you do and how you do it was quite the rage from the reason there. That's a good thing. Well, well, thank you very much. Hey, I want to jump right into this with the impeachment and you're probably one of the best to talk to you about this. So the impeachment trial. Boyd is set for February night. But there is this procedural vote that clearly well, it's made it clear that there's not enough votes for now, at least to convict former President Trump on his role. In the deadly January 6 month attacking the capital. So where do we go from here? Yeah, I think you did on a really key thing that it does signal to both sides that it doesn't look like there's gonna be a lot of movement in this thing. So I think that might actually impact how both sides actually proceed to the trial in terms of calling witnesses. If they try to draw this out, or I think the reality now. Everyone is Yeah, there really isn't going to be 67 votes there on so Probably better off making this short, sweet and moving on to the rest of the business. Boyd Matheson, opinion editor of Desert News with us this morning, a newsworthy or 6 10 W. T. V. N and the Brandon Boxer Show Rand. Paul was on Fox News last night, Boy and he had said, Now Look, I full disclosure. I have not read this portion of the Constitution. What I'm asking out of curiosity. Can you convict someone or impeach someone that's now out of office and prevent them from running again? Yeah, it is that it's an interesting at the ministry thing, And there's a lot of debate around that in terms of what it is the precedent that the Democrats have relied on. In terms of it goes back. Tonto 18 67 secretary of war was impeached. You didn't immediately resigned, but they still help the trial in the Senate on day. Actually, the chief justice didn't preside over that one. Which is sort of the model they're using with Patrick Leahy, who actually was became the old last night in the hospital for a little bit. I hear he is back at home, eh? So that becomes a very interesting thing. I also think it's very telling. That John Roberts has gone to a secure, undisclosed location. Hey, doesn't want to talk about this because I'm not sure he's convinced of the constitutionality of it in the end. Well, I was going to say listening to Rand Paul last night. He talked as if the chief justice won't be showing up for that. Am I getting that right for this one? Yes. Yeah, that's correct. So Patrick Leahy, who was the president Pro TEM, which means he's the longest serving senator and the majority on so he will preside over the trial again. They're going back to this 18 67 case with Secretary of War A Z The precedent for that. The only time it happens on s so anyway, it appears to me that there's still a lot of debate over. You know what rules they're following? What procedures Air actually. The right one to you. Woodrow Win regards to the week of the trial. February 9th. How long are we thinking? This is going to last and is Trump do we know of does he have to show up for this? All right. He does not need to show up for this. If you remember back to get to the trial from from last year, right? He did not make an appearance He did not testify on I don't expect that he would in this either. Again. I think both sides going to say you know what I wear? This is pretty well set. I don't see a lot of movement and they're clearly doesn't seem to be enough movement to get to 67 votes, which is the only way you could convict in the Senate. S so my guess is that you won't see former President Trump making any appearances. I think it's going to be a very short trial. Remember, there's only one article of impeachment. I think you will see Evidence laid out very quickly from both sides that you'll have a couple of days where senators will get to pontificate and make their case really going after their own social media moments and Big news for fundraising in their next reflection on then they'll have a vote so that sadly that'll be a little bit of what we see. We'll see a lot of grandstanding. That's a very good point. Boyd that Zaveri Good 0.0.1. Other thing I'm curious about is if you you are on trial for impeachment, and your president Trump. Are you responsible for those legal fees? Yes, he is responsible for those, although I think I think here is there. I think there is there were some fun set of side. As part of that, Okay, were the sitting president that would be there, But I do think he's going to have some of his own costs as well. All right. Well, that was more of a curiosity question. I did that made the Celica curveball question. No, no, no, no. No. Just learned learning as I go, Boyd Matheson Really good to talk with you. Opinion editor of Desert News. Former Chief of staff to Senator Mike Lee. Come back soon, okay? We will. Thanks, Brandon. All right. Appreciate it on def You didn't hear that interview last night. Um, you know, in a nutshell. And regards to what Rand Paul is saying things what he had to say about the impeachment itself put forward a motion that said that Basically you can't impeach a private individual. You.

Some of the decisions for the Senate impeachment trial are loaded with constitutional controversy and, of course, packed with questions as well. Double BBC's Truman Holland continues our coverage. One of the bigger ones is what's the constitutionality of the proceedings. They have to have a remedy for conduct that a president engages in close to the end of the term in office. That's the take from Professor of law at Suffolk University. Rosanna Cavallaro. If we say Well, the last week doesn't count because by the time we impeach them, they're out of office. At some point we're seeing the president has a cart lodge to commit any kinds of criminal acts as long as they can just do it right under the wire. When the term ends in, Cavallaro tells me it's unclear to her. How this all plays out just because it's so unprecedented. We just have never had this exact scenario before history In the making.

"V and senators will be sworn in today as jurors for the second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump. House impeachment managers Monday delivered the article accusing Trump of inciting an insurrection at the U. S. Capitol. Earlier this month, Senator Patrick Leahy, president pro TEM of the chamber, will preside over Trump's second impeachment. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts presided over Trump's first impeachment trial. But now that Trump is a former president Roberts is not constitutionally obligated to preside. The reason that the chief justice's role in presidential impeachment trials appears in the Constitution at all is because of the power given to the vice president as the presiding officer of the Senate and Any impeachment trial of an officer who was not president. The vice president made preside in modern times. Impeachment trials. Votes in the Senate have been presided over not by the vice president, either, but by the president pro tempore, I'm Mike Power.

"My group had been working on just kind of looking at and analyzing the elections in the ballot returns data that valentina's been processing through that map what we're thinking about it. We kind of decided that we could maybe think about what kind of demographics are voting and I was really interested in Vermont prisoner voting because incarcerated residents still retain that right, even if they're in one of the states abilities, so it's really hard to actually find that data because the state treats everyone the same regardless of whether or not they're living at home address or if they're living in a state facility. So we've been kind of trying to pursue as much as the ballot return data that the Secretary of State's office releases every day the same data that Valentina go through and seeing if I can confirm whether or not someone is incarcerated and received a valid is registered to vote. So the end goal with the to see how many people who are currently incarcerated in the state prison system down. Are registered voters and how many are actually voting so far. It's interesting too. I guess Vermont is one of three jurisdictions in the country the others being Main and the District of Columbia where folks who are currently incarcerated are allowed to vote. We've had quite a bit of news coverage of developments in Florida where there was a Statewide referendum a couple of years ago that said that folks who had served time who are who had been convicted of felonies and since been released back into the community after serving some time were going to be eligible to vote, but then it turned out that a lot of them have been blocked from voting because the the legislature then stepped in with a law to say that they had to pay off all off of all outstanding court fees and fines and and all of that other sort of stuff that may have actually been levied years ago and if they still have to be dead Out there on the books and connected with an individual voter that person is blocked. Have you followed that and sort of thought about that in comparison the way to Vermont approach? I followed it very like ever-so-slightly. I would say I am aware of what's been going on down there, but I haven't paid like the most attention to it most imperative Vermont. It definitely is an interesting because from what I found so far the numbers of those who are registered to vote compared to the whole population. And then the number that are voting is pretty low in the state of Vermont and it makes you kind of wonder what that would be like if the scenario was that Vermont residents had just been returned that right to vote after having been forced to Forfeit it upon conviction, but it creates an interesting scenario surrounding the greater conversation of incarcerated voting rights. I've talked to a couple of professors at the University of Vermont who you're talking about this idea of birth..

This is got a lot of Democrats upset. Of course, they didn't like several aspects of this one. One of them being that the looking back to 2016 when the the Senate went for nine or ten months without granting a hearing to a nominee by President Obama Merrick Garland had been chosen by President Obama to take an open seat on the screen cord following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. And of course the Senate never acted this time the Senate acted with the much greater dispatch office instead of a nine or ten month interregnum between leaving it open seat on the court these Senate decided within a matter of weeks to to confirm the nominee of Faith Trump before the election this of course, we had Senator Patrick Leahy on in the first half hour of the show this morning. He was complaining bitterly about that as are many Democrats off Senator Chris Coons who is a Democrat from Delaware was on The Rachel Maddow Show last night. I didn't actually watch the program, but I was just reading a account of it this morning and birth. Indicating that he is calling for a quote unquote rebalancing of the federal Judiciary following these latest developments and how that would work. It's really anybody's guess but one one one thing I've seen repeat repeatedly in the media recently is discussion about a an effort to perhaps expand the number of seats on the Supreme Court to try to essentially get closer to even right now. It looks like a 6-3 conservative majority on the court and home, of course that has many conservative Republicans perfectly happy. They think that is the bulwark against a possible Democratic Biden Administration and possible Democratic takeover of the century. We don't know obviously in either case whether those things will happen. But if they do the conservatives certainly like the insurance policy of having at least one branch of the government founded by their their folks and so wondering what the what the listeners out there think 244 1777 is the shovel number in Waterbury the toll free numbers 187-729-1825 we have day from Plainfield on the line. Morning, Dave. Oh, good morning. I just wanted to make sure I called in yesterday. I'm Bill and I was kind of ricocheting. I called him about yesterday. I didn't get to talk.

"So I'm going to do that but they come like all Bud short. Thank you. Hey, let's go to Senator Patrick Leahy who joins us on the phone this morning, I believe from Washington. Good morning, sir. How are you? I'm well, thank you. I hope you are well as well. So there we go. Hey, all of my sister. Mary tells me that she saw snow up in Marshfield yesterday, but not today. Yep. We did have a dead snow yesterday and well, you know, it's the time of year so glad I got my snow tires on the other day. Anyway, obviously the big news is the confirmation by the United States Senate yesterday. Day two for the for the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to a seat on the United States Supreme Court. I read your remarks that you delivered in in explaining yourself against this against this nomination and tell us tell us a little bit about what you're told them. Well, I won. I thought the idea that they were trying to Ram through. a Supreme Court Justice even before Justice Ginsburg been buried I mean announce her even before that so rushed that they have that open. Announcement of the White House and several people came down with covert as a result of the of the event in all it's all been dead. So politically and remember this the same Republican party that stopped Merrick Garland whom everybody agreed to be a good moderate Choice stopped him for nine or ten months and then they're trying to put somebody through and and nine or ten days. It's just no sense whatsoever. But what worries me is that this is This is a a case where it's going to hurt. The Supreme Court is going to hurt it for generations to come and suck. I don't know how your turn back here Mitch McConnell has been a point to put assize the federal courts from the office district courts of the Courts of appeals and especially to the Supreme Court. Now, I I know in Vermont when I was partially law and then later State's Attorney, I tried cases and all our Courts at the local level county-level the Vermont Supreme Court, I tried cases and all the federal courts and law courts courts of appeal even had one that went to the Supreme Court in every single case. I never thought about Or what's the politics of the judge up there?.

Good morning, Vermont. It is Tuesday, October 27th, 1:20, and we have a good. Signed up for you this morning going to be speaking first off with them once a senior. Senator Patrick Leahy he of course is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and sat through the hearings that led to the confirmation yesterday of a Judge Amy Coney. Barrett has the newest song Justice of the United States Supreme Court The Senator Leahy, of course, I think we all know is unhappy about these developments will find out why and we'll find out from him what he thinks they might mean for the year for the future of the Supreme Court and the next year's and maybe decades and so that should be an interesting lead off of the show and then following that we're going to be catching up with a Katie jickling she's wage. Healthcare reporter with VT Digger. Org and he's going to be talking to us some about what the heck is going on with the covert crisis here in Vermont. And in particular Vermont, of course has been a relatively successful State certainly compared to other states and trying to keep a lid on the spread of the coronavirus but we we still have a battle on our hands affectionately and we're going to be catching up with Ms. Jiggling about all of that later on in the second hour of the program will be speaking with some student journalists at the University of Vermont these young people who are part of something they call the community news service are going to be talking to us about vote tracking efforts. They've been doing so far. They've actually come up with a ranking of I believe of choice of the towns in Vermont that have been most were Advance voting early voting mail-in voting Etc had been most popular those where maybe that are not getting used to this relatively new IDE. For a lot of people yet. And as well, they're going to be talking to us about the the phenomenon in Vermont and Maine in the District of Columbia. The only three jurisdictions in the United States where she made sexual currently incarcerated folks are allowed to vote. What is going on in Vermont's prisons. How are they doing in terms are early voting and so on so we will be catching up with those young people on all of that in the second hour of the program this morning. I believe we have a caller on the line already. Is that right? Yes, you do not know who I'm sorry. I'm missing in the home from Peter from Barry. Good morning. Good morning. You know, I just wonder if President Trump shot himself in the foot last night because all of the many of the Evangelical and religious, right who voted for Trump dead. Holding their nose and pulling the lever, you know, they didn't really like him for particularly, but you know, they pulled the lever because he was going to get those judges in there. So when he's finally got the judges in there, they really don't need him anymore. Hmm victories victories there they can go home now is that the idea just occurred to me that he may have he made a huge mistake interesting thought there Peter. Hey, yeah. Yeah. Well, all right, I going to jump cuz I got centered on the other line..

Could that be a threat to our constitutional former covering the Supreme Court? Can't control whether or not the president obeys. Leahy then raised another pointed question. Does the president have an absolute right to pardon himself? So far as I know that question has never been litigated. That question has never risen. Republican Senator Ted Cruz says he's confident Barrett will be confirmed and added that Democrats tried to make the hearing more about President Trump than the judge.

GOP's Mitchell Miller today on the Hill, Senator Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the committee, fired off several questions on major legal matters, including abortion. Do you agree with Justice Scalia's view that row was wrongly decided, if I express a view on a precedent, one way or another, whether I say I love it or hate it. It signals to litigants that I might tilt one way or another in a pending case, And in response to questions from Republican Senator Chuck Grassley and Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy, Barrett made it clear she's had no discussions with the White House about how she might rule in cases involving the affordable care act or the upcoming election. It would be a complete violation of the independence of the judiciary for anyone to put a justice on the court as a means of obtaining a particular result. Republicans have praised Barrett during the hearing, which is now in a brief break, Senator John Cornyn pointed out. She has no notebooks in front of her, except for a small white pad.

"Of the Joint Chiefs again. Highly respected highly decorate. He spoke out and when I call them at home afterward. He said. He tries never say so critical any president. This was so far over the line. He felt that he really believed in the constitution. He had to speak out now. This. This should send alarm in people's minds. I don't care whether you're Republican or a Democrat. If president feels, they can use the military for a political purpose. that's gone beyond anything. This country seen in my lifetime. And I've been there with Republicans and Democrats president. I I'll give you another thing that comes to my mind. Here you have this. Murder Of. Floyd I I was a prosecutor for eight years I. I looked at those videos. There's no question. I would have brought murder charges in in that case. But. It's obvious that. so much of the country was torn apart by it. Now in the past with President again both prizes. Something like this happens. They come as the consoler in chief think of Ronald Reagan after the. After the. Space shuttle blew up and when he's spoke to. A grieving nation or after the? Oklahoma City bombing. Bill Clinton going out there or George Bush after nine eleven. Lincoln arms with Republicans Democrats on the. Steps of the Capitol and Brock Obama. The church. Reading over the murder, the number of. A quietly seems amazing grace bringing the country together. That's what you do at a time like this. You don't go into. This is hurting my poll. Something find out I was down in the. Secure Basement. We've got to do such show. I'm strong and then having the military. Set up a photo op. Of A man, holding a Bible in front of a church, and then going before another one. The next day this man doesn't go to church is. This is a man who's never read the Bible. This is a man. who uses this just for politics and I think that was so far over the line. That's why you're now hearing Republicans. Speaking out. Before they were in the Senate just quietly. In the corker now this publicly. Boy that's. I I I gather. You may be a little reticent about. Two, pointed criticisms at your at your fellow senators. Lisa Murkowski just one example Republican of Alaska. In the last twenty four hours has been taking a lot of heat online along the lines of you know she seems to be having. Some softening of her support for the president, and there's a lot of snark out there. Basically saying you know, you think. You're late to the party and and She's been much. I. I I went and saw her yesterday and just to. Say we've always been friends. her. Father served in the. In the Senate then her father and mother of friends ourselves in mind. Lisa. Join as the. Senior Republicans on that delegation I brought to Vietnam where we use the. Lady War Victims Fund something. That's how to improve relations between our countries. As she came. With us, she's a thoughtful. person. And I went to and said. You know as power vern. And Sawn! We've always been been friends. And she said I It's not worth. Saying. I can be silenced, so I can get real like. Yeah I guess. I mean this is this is. A tough thing to go against the leader of your party, the president of your party. These however are extraordinary times and and win. Again I've tried to explain to people on the show here that I do this on the basis of ideology, it's not because I consider myself a strong Democrat or a strong Republican. It's really all my criticisms. The president, which have been pretty sharp at times and draw a lot of complaints frankly from. More conservative listeners. You know I. I think I have based. Complaint Mike Criticisms mainly on behavior, mainly on you know when when a president comes out and tells four Congress women of Color that they should quote unquote. Go back where they came from. Allergy that is really really problematic. You know it'd be. It rings a bell, and sounds an echo of some very racist things that have been said in in in our country over the over the centuries. And when he when he talks about Henry Ford, the famous Anti Semite and Nazi sympathizer, having good bloodlines again. Just the language you know blood purity was a huge thing with the Nazis. SORTA have to emissions up and take notice. You lutely shoot I. Mean that Well I look at the. The dignity of John Lewis Congressman John Lewis. And Talk to him later today. In speaking how we should resist, saying we should stand for the constitution, which is have the rights of all people. And when Congressman Lewis came to Burlington And spoke there a few months ago at the. Flint Theater. We we had two. Extra. Tyson to speak because these overwhelming. The number of Vermont irs want to come in. Hear him speak in. These were for monitors I. I knew a number of them. They went across the political spectrum? It'd be our stated predominantly white. Audience. And they wanted to hear what he said about people's rights. Everybody I think it was one of the most moving things is seen. In all my years in Vermont. Having him speak now. I I've been in.

"You've been talking about the trump deal there where he went to the church. those people were asked to move and they wouldn't do it. Now. This black lives matter deal. You've been glorifying these guys. And these this black lives matter outfit is nothing but a bunch of eggs. All, they care about they WANNA get rid of cops. They've stated so they in their signs that they hold up. And they WANNA defend the cops. They WANNA. Let people out of jail because they want mob rule. They want to be able to do what they want. When they want and they want to do it by force if they were so interested in preserving black lives. Why aren't they complaining about the murders of their own by their own in cities? Like Chicago Baltimore and others were up to a dozen. People are dozen black folks killed. At night. By other other black folks. Those lies I guess don't matter so much. You never hear anything about those. And another thing is over in Saint John's Berry yesterday. They were asked to. US They were. They wanted to assemble and they were asked to stay off the sidewalk. They were asked not block the doors, and that's exactly what ended up happening I watched the video time and time again, and they got in there, and the police chief said what happened in which was they were stopping on their feet. They were elbowing him and this one gal. She claimed she was not down I did not see that she fell backwards. And when you fall backwards on set of stairs, you go downhill. And that's what happened. She shouldn't have been there anyway because she was asked not to be there. So this black lives el-feth. They they. They are total bunch of thugs. And if they like I said if they were interested in peaceful assemblies, they wouldn't be smashing up our cities. They have they have killed their own. They've killed Jeff Using A. Everybody flies a black lives. Matter flag or banner has like black lives. Matter is a thug. Support Matt outfit. That's that's a Dutch the work of the devil. No I don't work. That is a terrible thing to fly the black lives matter because they have no, they are not interested in saving black lives. They're interested in mob. Rule when it gets right down to it. That's really what is going on. They've proved this in the media's in which you're involved with. The media are too cowardly to call him out on what they really are. which is thugs? And they've they've. They've smashed up businesses. They've they've yesterday I saw on a video where these young ladies were scraping off. Jeff out of one hundred black lives matter activists. How many how many how many are you think are guilty crimes. You know if you wanted to do a per capita. Out of hundreds thousands, you work on your arithmetic boyfriend. You can't have thousands out of one hundred I. Don't know if you knew that from four spring. The country all through these big cities, where these bands of people have trips down through the city's my friend and smashed up. Cars smashed buildings torn down. Stuff stolen stuff there in. They're literally dragging out. Stop and another thing is he, Jeff? You've had enough things I'M GONNA get I'm GonNa get you off by Jeff? Folks that is that is gonNA. Say That's borderline. In fact over the border of incivility here on a day, Graham Show wd FM and am. If I I really urge against people describing almost any large group in in derogatory terms. Because you're you're charge the derogatory charge almost in fact not. I won't say always always misses the target on at least some members of that group and so. It's it's over generalizing, and it's really it's. It's really unfortunate. I don't know whether. Whether, I mean I've seen some stuff online recently about how this? How people who identify with antiques. are allegedly all radical leftists, thugs or something? Also I've tried to explain to people that to my knowledge, and actually is more of a kind of a political stance than it is any organized group, but that is that's directed. It isn't a group. At most the social movement is actually more of a slogan that you think. In fact I'm going to say right here. I think that presentation. There was just so bad that I'm going to say We're not going to be taking any more calls from Jeff from braintree. He can call my management if he doesn't like that idea, but. But? We're we're we're going to? We're going to we're going to. We're going to say Jeff you know. Get a life, my friend so there we go anyway back to my guest John Hughes and again I say I've tried to say. Two and a half years. I've been do the show I. Welcome all views on the day Graham Show! But some are just when people start fleeing insults. Making these group generalization is like that. That is. That's that's beyond the Pale and We're we'RE NOT GONNA.

Be Out there and flaming anybody, or whatever so there we go. and I really regret know I regret. Frankly I know Jeff has very strong conservative views and I regret that it happens to be the conservative here. WHO's just been banned from the show, but? That's kind of the way the cookie crumbles.

"So John Hughes let me let me shift the focus here. Somebody somebody suggested yesterday focused too much on president trump and it's of tough sometimes because he is our president, presidents traditionally have been kind of the leading newsmaker in the country. We News Analysis on this program and so Jesus in the news every day. That's kind of way. The cookie crumbles but I'm happy to. Ask you questions as well about cities. Perhaps. Have Democrats for mayors including New York where this week on some evenings they were declaring an eighty eight PM curfew. I did want to get into this with you because. You know the time manner and place restrictions on the first. Amendment that showed up in some of the jurisprudence. Maybe they apply here but again. These people are a lot of them. Were there peaceably to assemble? I love that unspent infinitive by the way I. I Never WanNa say to peaceably sample, but anyway that's just my old copy editor coming out. Peaceably to sample the petition, their government for a redress of grievances and the The. You know the police are are reacting by arresting them. Even. So I guess that's my question is. Does that part of the First Amendment disappeared ATM? Yeah that's troubling and I admit I don't know what the status of curfews are. They would appear to be content neutral I. Don't know if they're narrowly tailored to a compelling government interest. It seems to me that clearly there was lawbreaking, going on, there was looting. There was violence. Those people can be dealt with separately. I think you can deal with them. with a scalpel, not a sledge, hammer and so curfews are are disturbing, but I I really don't know without looking things up. I don't know if there's any case on on curfews. I know they've been passed? Yeah they have, and whether that's a trend that should grow or shrink in a country that On free expression. Is. I think it's an open question one which? I'M NOT GONNA I'M NOT GONNA. Take sides on it right now, but I like to ask the question and I think it's worthwhile for sure. Let's see.

"And so I find the idea of unidentified police highly disturbing, and and I don't know how many there were at at Lafayette Park. I've heard stories about it. what we do know. Is that without much warning? They suddenly fired. Tear gas rubber bullets than concussion grenades into the crowd that had been peaceful up until then. and so that's that does not strike me as consistent with the first. Amendment to tell all sides of the story. Here I'm sorry. Let me interrupt for a moment and just just just tell all sides of the story here, Kaley mechanism the white. House press secretary made a statement in the last couple of days saying that. Some of these specific weapons on that list the concussion. I don't know I. Don't recall what she said about concussion grenades, but said it was not tear gas. It was apparently she said some other kind of chemical, irritant or something that. The media of course the the the fake news mainstream media got it wrong. That's the argument from the White House. But does that doesn't really change the overall arc of this story, does it? Always weapon was used. You can call it whatever you want I think the playing working here. The fire and gas that was an irritant. That was admitted irritates the eyes, the nose, the throat of the lungs sounds like tear guests to me now it may not be technically teargas. Highly inelegant. And everyone. Everyone saw the video of people. In clouds of something rubbing their faces an is. Taking down there, covid nineteen masks and Of course. Imposing more danger on themselves as a result of this police action by by virtue of that and. So. I just So now now we have this violent violence introduced into the scene by. Some type of law enforcement people. And so these these protesters are basically driven off and prevented from their peaceful emily to petition the government for redress of grievances is. Is that a violation of their constitutional rights. It sounds like to me, This would have to be sold by a court. And as this morning, lawsuits have already been filed by the District of Columbia Ucla. Lawyers Committees on behalf of I think four or five protesters. And the black lives matter movement, and it probably will be others and then Bill Bar Donald Trump and the secretary of defense as descendants. Now how far those suits will go I. Don't know I'm not an attorney I'M GONNA guess that they're looking for declaratory judgment, and possibly an injunction against the repetition of the and maybe compensation for people who were injured But it, it doesn't sound to me like this was narrowly tailored to meet a compelling. Government interest. Well attorney-general bar is out with Stevens now, saying that the White House wanted to push the perimeter back by. A by a block. I guess there was some severe weather justified or not because. About a week ago or so, the president spent a little bit of time. In the security bunker underneath the White House, got some some ridicule for that on twitter, and he later said he was just inspecting the. Security bunker so again I i. try to give as much as I can all sides of the story here. Because maybe it was just a maybe maybe it had a long-term. long-term plan inspection of of the security bunker. Just go down and see what it looked like. Who knows. But the the the president The president was was clearly I think concerned about people demonstrating anywhere near the White House I guess and so they wanted to. This is a this the narrative now presented by attorney. General Barr says they wanted to push the security perimeter. Back a block and that that was that was what that operation on Monday really was about. Now, it happened that minutes after that operation was conducted again you know with quite a lot of force and violence, and and actually you know rubber, rubber, bullets, or pepper, balls, or tear gas, or some other chemical, irritant or whatever? The the president appeared in walked over to the church there where people had been demonstrating. Short time before and. So, do you do does? Does the attorney-general's narrative sound credible to you? Well, the demonstration was not on White House grounds. The White House was secure Lafayette, Park is the place where demonstrations frequently occur I guess it's unfortunate that it's between the White House and the Church that the president trump wanted to use for a photo op. but I I. Don't find it credible at all. Speaking of using a church for photo, OP, let me let me ask you just for a moment about. You know we used to talk about years ago and maybe this is all out the window now with the rise of the Christian right in their increasing dominance in American politics, but We talk about a separation of church and state in the In in the in our country, of course, we also have these national prayer breakfast and all sorts of. What could could be. It could be construed by some people as entanglements of government and religion. Was this. Was this the right symbolism on that front? It may have been before president trump's base I think I think it rather handed. I think he's been. Widely mocked and criticized for a poorly thought out photo up, but is certainly not the first president to invoke. Religion as as a source of. Legitimacy or support. we have to understand the first amendment. Does separate church and state it. Demands Neutrality towards religion and neutrality is not hostility and president of course can. Attend Church services the Congress opens with an invitation every day so. Religion and politics are not completely separated. But, yeah, that was the that was kind of crude and particularly when it was done without the. Permission of the Church. Well, that was my next question is did the president basically impose himself on this religious community whose bishop ended up saying he was not invited, they didn't. They didn't as the Bishop. Would it even get a courtesy call? And, and basically the the appearance by the president caused great great strife at the church. Sidewalk, which is also Public Forum and and so you know he wasn't going into the church but clearly he was trying to show up. The church has a simple. It seems. Incongruous, that he would just have random happened to be there. Yeah I, don't buy the secretary. Argument. He didn't know that they were going to the church I. Mean he could clearly see. Churches on the other side of the park. He could see where they were going. The Secretary of Defense I. I was actually surprised by that normally when? You know the chief person of the US military goes out on any. Any kind of emission he. Knows where he's going right. I don't mean to. You is got here, but man. Oh Man! some of this stuff is. Let's see my doing a bombing run in country extra country. Why and oh now going across the street to a what? Yikes Holy. Not Wholly. Maybe I don't know.

"Vice chairman senator Patrick Leahy so the the infectious disease rapid response fund at CDC was funded by Congress and twenty twenty as well as twenty nineteen and so its current your money we're running out of that money which is why we have sent over that we plan to do transfer and reprogramming using the existing authorities for twenty twenty appropriations and precisely why we're asking for emergency supplemental if you take you take a half a billion dollars out of the money appropriated for the ball a threat though those are true those would be proposed offsets are trade offs for the emergency supplemental if the appropriators don't want to do that we'll that that's that's just an option for the appropriators you have any of your requests for supplemental funds it requires you they told him he was or that it isn't there were denied by OMB well I'm not going to discuss internal line operations that's not proper to discuss internal devising a proper I've heard that question asked by my during democratic administrations Republican administrations or in my forty years on this committee has been answered I would never answer internal deliberations with the White House but I will tell you I am completely supportive of the two point five billion dollar request it does exactly what I want which is to focus on those five critical success factor areas okay so what you want is a proposal that would divert a hundred thirty five million dollars from other important programs including thirty seven million from rely he millions from substance abuse seven million dollars from Medicare and Medicaid programs with our S. U. deliberation would you just want to cut a whole lot of things we rely well those are those are options for funding half of the cost of the emergency supplemental but if Congress makes a different choice Congress makes a different choice the other have come from that would be emergency supplemental find new money that you would have to come up with things you want so then I need funding the ball of funding your recommendation you're just there for this is a cut that out it's a proposal of how to fund half of the cost of the total is your proposal that is our proposal but if Congress disagrees with other approaches there are other ways to get there thank you Sir center Alexander thank you Mr chairman Mr secretary welcome before we I asked get in corona virus I want to congratulate senator blunt and senator Murray and senator Durbin and lazy and Shelby and members of the subcommittee for the last five years of funding for the national institutes of health over that five years discretionary spending which is about a third of our budget that the federal government spends is going up twenty percent but funding for the national institutes of health has gone up thirty nine percent Republican senator Lamar Alexander and I might add the subcommittee that deals with the office of science in the department of energy the senator Feinstein I work on is gone up thirty eight percent for the best kept secrets in Washington is the big increase of funding for biomedical research and science and I want to congratulate this committee for its part of it I think one of our responsibilities as members of the Senate is to help the American people get a fair view of exactly how threatening to them individually the corona virus is looking around the world there is reason for alarm ten days ago for example there were forty nine thousand confirmed cases in the world ten years ago in China there forty eight thousand confirmed cases today in China there seventy nine thousand confirmed cases in the world in their seventy seven thousand China and we read about problems in propping up in Italy which could get across their borders in Iran and other places South Korea and not only do we have the problem of of a rapidly spreading virus which could jump into our country we have to think about what I was manufactured in those countries could mean for us with thirteen percent of our of our prescription drugs are drugs being manufactured in China for example are we going to have shortages and even beyond that with a quarter or so of everything that we use in this country being made in China well we have supplies for our automobiles and are are other things that we make in this country and what will it do to our economy so looking around the world there's reason to be alarmed but now looking at home let me go through what the facts are at home we've known about this for about two months right about fifty days yes about fifty days and and and ten days ago if I'm right we had detected fourteen cases in the United States I believe that's correct and today we have detected fourteen cases in the United States in addition to the thirty nine cases of Americans have been brought home from overseas and isolated in this country because they might have been infected there exactly imported case and during that time you have begun to develop a vaccine which will be ready for a year or longer but you're doing that more rapidly than any other time in the history of our country that's correct and my question is going to be with this alarming situation in the world what have you been doing right at home the causes to see a situation where this huge country of ours will have fourteen cases a year ago I mean all of ten days ago fourteen today my guess is he's twenty years of preparation by Democrats and Republicans on this committee and Democrats and Republican presidents to be ready for pandemics number one number two it's the extraordinary public health system we have in this country state and local doing their job and number three it's the first and most aggressive quarantine requirements that you've done in fifty years so it were alarmed about what's going on around the world what can we learn about the last fifty days in this country that you've been doing right and that makes us to be able to say ten days ago there were fourteen cases and today they're fourteen cases every time we're around the world cases are going up so we are bearing the fruits actually of our pandemic flu preparedness activities which I was one of the architects of in the bush administration and the Congress funded we're seeing the public health infrastructure from that that is coming up for one of the most important things we did as soon as alerted to this and as soon as we had a genetic sequence and understood the nature of the symptoms of this disease was to alert our state and local public health partners and our health professionals and that's why thirteen of those fourteen cases were identified by health care professionals a student Lee seeing that these were individuals who had been in who they province and presented with flu like symptoms gotten the system and took advantage of that one week develop CDC tests to confirm results so that is that that kind of public health infrastructure of the world's best is the backbone of our response activities here in addition we worked on the aggressive border containment measures and we work with China to try to get transparency and get information we still do not have unfortunately solid information to take to the bank on severity on transmissibility on incubation period on a symptomatic transmission I'm out of time I would think what I'm hearing you say you would do more of what you've already done properly funded yes thank you Sir Alexander Sir shots thank you Mr chairman thank you secretary for being here this committee has a long tradition of bipartisanship and I know secretary you and I've had a couple disagreements and in private and in public so I want to kind of see whether we can find some common ground in fighting the corona virus the president's budget cuts the infectious disease rapid response reserve fund the public health preparedness and response fund hospital preparedness program in epidemiology and laboratory capacity program so given everything that's happened over the last fifty days I want to give you an opportunity and given the context here which is last night you propose the two point five billion dollar supplemental do you want to rescind those cuts to the base budget of your agencies that deal with this problem democratic senator Bryan shots well it's a good question senator as I mention to chairman blonde this is a request focused on twenty twenty money some money to be spent on hold on hold on hold on I'm not asking you about the sun I'm asking you about the president's budget which cuts all those programs which I described and the question is a simple one because I have a couple of other questions I'd like to get to will you resume those cuts will you ask us to restore those programs or will you not so as I said the chairman blunt we will work with you over the coming months as we learn more about this disease on whether to modify the twenty twenty one appropriation request in light of that we do increase by a hundred and thirty five million dollars CDC's budget around preparedness emergency response infectious disease and global health security I'm not going to get too much into the weeds there but I was just over that actually is a such a shell game there are four key programs that deal with this problem they are being cut the CDC overall is being cut by nine percent and so you may have increased a line item or two but that's a talking point that is not the fact of the matter and this committee will very likely reject these cuts but it is absurd to me that you're proposing cuts as at the same time that you're proposing a supplemental on the same topic so moving on how many masks do we need in our strategic stockpile and how much will that cost so we would need to determine through procurement what the cost would be of additional mass I know that this morning in the briefing there was a reference to possibly as many as three hundred million masks needed in the U. S. for healthcare workers we wanted to find that better through procurement criteria we have to frankly established supply here in the United states ability to manufacture as well as to find sourcing of active ingredients such as the filtration materials even the the nickel and copper knows joints that go on the I. ninety five masks over the if we get the money we can actually make that market and get capacity built here in the understood want to work with you on for the two point five billion dollars like the the the the mass in the strategic stockpile the test kit all the all of your five lines of effort it seems to me you don't quite know how much each line of effort is going to cost is that accurate we would have to do procurements to find out exactly what we would our per unit cost would be on the mask because I've been with the scaling up domestic production to doesn't fully exist right now so one doesn't know until one actually procure is that so how do you get to two point five not knowing how how to compile you have five lines of effort you don't know how much that the first one I'm asking about you so you gotta go through procurement you got to build a Mar I understand all that so then how do you get to two point five with any degree of specificity reliability it is two point five billion dollars sort of pulled out of a hat no not at all the two point five billion dollars and then one of the major cost items you don't know how much it's gonna cost you don't know the precise per unit cost but within the range of the hundreds of millions of dollars were dealing with that clearly would be self sufficient I think right now acquisition cost and N. ninety five mask tends to be under a dollar so that gives you a rough approximation but with we have to scale up domestic production do you have a back of the envelope numbers that you haven't yet provided to the committee because it sounds like you have well but it sounds like you have ballpark numbers and I I got I got told by a staff person that this stop no I haven't gone through it with a fine tooth comb yet but but I have been told that this is the least detailed supplemental that they've ever seen for you also and so should we just consider this a marker and you'll give us the details later none the least there is a letter that went off last night which has the the number of the basic numbers and it and as I've told both the chairman and the vice chairwoman we will work with your staff to get you the details behind that there is detail behind that it just last night you got the initial letter okay final question on test kits they were deployed into a bunch of locations they didn't function properly.

"That such a thing occurred? What what else did you assume? Seems like an interesting. Statement. How many other things have you stated occurred that didn't occur? But. You figure maybe they kind of halfway did or could have possibly maybe. That's what reasonably might have happened. Patrick layhee made reference to the fact that the Senate failed Anita hill. First of all, let's remember the Senate invest the FBI investigated. Anita Hill's allegation. And the FBI found that Anita Hill's allegations were not credible. They brought them forward. Now, Joe Biden made the point at the time that it's not from the FBI to decide they just they just gather things together. The FBI doesn't get to tell us which is making it very odd for the Democrats today. They're saying gotta tell us. We'll the FBI told you that Anita hill. Was making it up. The pubic hair on the cocaine and all sorts of other things that that she brought forward. Patrick layhee said that the Senate had failed Anita hill all women. I guess. Patrick leahy. He's been in the United States Senate who was first elected seventy four. He took office in January of seventy five there's been exactly one black man nominated to the supreme court in those forty three years that was Clarence Thomas. Patrick layhee voted against him. And twenty seven years after Clarence Thomas began what any observer of the supreme court would have to say has been nothing more or less than an honorable almost three decades of service to this country on our supreme court Patrick layhee continues to undercut him. I don't know of Patrick layhee doesn't like black men. I don't know if it's just that one black man, I don't know if when a woman accuses a black man of a crime of harassment. He's naturally disposed to that. The Democrats have a terrible history. With regard to race terrible history. Turning the hoses on the sticks beatings. Terrible history for Patrick layhee to continue with that history against blacks two thousand eighteen is shameful. We're not here to.
