Takeaways from Congress’ first Washington DC hearing on Capitol riot
"What went wrong looking into the security lapses. That happened before the Capitol riot last month with us to talk about the latest on these hearings on Capitol Hill is CNN, Washington correspondent Ryan Nobles. He joins us on Skype. So Ryan, these investigations are really just beginning. But have we learned anything so far? What the takeaways from day one. Yesterday's hearing was pretty explosive on many levels. Nick you heard from many of these officials from the various law enforcement agencies, some who have been forced out of their jobs. About what went wrong on that day. And what was perhaps the most shocking was that there was intelligence on the table that some of these agencies, the FBI and other agencies had taken in a lot of social media chatter from people that had said that they were specifically Coming to Washington with the goal of storming or causing chaos at the Capitol, and that information never made its way down to Capitol police sergeant in arms on other various law enforcement agencies, the Washington metro, much Politan Police department and they were never able to use that information to help prepare and as a result, they you know, the these leaders just were not prepared for the overwhelming crush of people that descended on the Capitol that day. On and you basically what lawmakers came to the conclusion that there needs to be a better flow of information to the folks that are gonna be making decisions about how to protect the capital in the future. There was some finger pointing that occurred yesterday, too, and that's getting a lot of attention. Yeah, That's right. You know, you had Capitol police saying something different What this Senate sergeant at arms, said Metropolitan Police seem to have a different perception is to have that information flow came down. And then one of the big things Joan that no one seemed to be able to agree on is when the National Guard was called in for reinforcement in and why it took so long for the National Guard to actually make it to the capital. To help protect the members of Congress and people that were at the Capitol. And then why the National Guard wasn't there even ahead of all of this s O. You know, this is just the beginning of this process. You know, this is one hearing, they said today or yesterday should say that there's gonna be another hearing that will involve the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. And then, of course, Speaker Pelosi is in the process of drafting legislation that would form a 9 11 style commission to look into all of this. It's gonna be a long time before you know all the information comes out as to what exactly went wrong in January Sex. Okay,

"pelosi" Discussed on Impeachment: A Daily Podcast
"Impeachment daily podcast from WNYC. It's Friday January January tenth. I M Ilya Marritz a reporter from the WNYC newsroom and the Co host of the trump inc.. podcast broadcast filling in today for Brian. It has been a rough few days for Nancy. Pelosi's impeachment strategy earlier this week. Some Senate Democrats called hold on the Speaker of the House to end the weeks-long delay so the process can move forward and articles of impeachment can move from the House to the Senate that comes amid a proposal from Lindsey. Graham Republican senator from South Carolina to forego the articles entirely and start the trial without them and yesterday day Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell added his name to a bill that would dismiss the articles of impeachment in the Senate on the grounds that well the Senate stole doesn't have them so with pressure mounting from Republicans and some in her own caucus Pelosi seems to be running out of options and time. CNN reports that she's told people privately that the articles will be sent by the end of the week. And here we are. It is Late morning on Friday the end of the week so will she or won't she joining me now. Is Mike Bonus a congressional national politics reporter for The Washington Post High Mike and Welcome back to WNYC. Thanks for having me. So what can you tell us from your latest reporting on where things stand. Should we be awaiting waiting some kind of news today We were able to throw a couple of questions at the speaker less than an hour ago and she confirmed there will not be today in the house to send these articles to the Senate I did ask her Whether she would at least outline the next steps and she left open the possibility that that would happen. She you said. Perhaps we'll see that today. our expectation is that You know she likes to send these letters to her Democratic Caucus When she has news to announce yes and I think that were anticipating one of those letters? Maybe later today or sometime over the weekend you know an interview with the New Yorker The New Yorker Radio Hour actually one of the podcast that we producer. WNYC not too long ago. Nancy Pelosi sort of laid out her general thinking which it was basically pressure is not a reason to do a thing. Timing is a reason to do a thing. Is that what we're seeing. Play out here like what is the calculation that you think she's making well. Let me start by saying this. Nobody knows exactly what. Her rationale is. Here What you said publicly is that it's about trying to force Mitch? McConnell Senate Republicans to change the way they planned to conduct the trial in the Senate. Mitch did you Kinda at this. Point has made clear that he's not going to get pushed around by House Democrats The question is why you know why at this point. Keep keep this up and I think you're right to say the timing is a big factor here Th there's a number of sort of different sort of moving pieces right now. One of which is This current debate about Iran and world powers Constraining the president's options to potentially go to war with Iran. Another is the fact that you've got the presidential primary process playing out next week. They're supposed to be a debate Ahead of the Iowa Caucus says says It's possible that both of those things are on the speakers mind and those might be influencing her decision of what what particular day to act but on the other hand she's got political pressures here in this building. Where not only are Republicans? Slamming her for Holding onto these articles and and keeping us away from the Senate. But you've also got some Democrats who were scratching their heads and wondering what the holdup is. Is She someone who enjoys actually in some sense of that kind of pressure kind of letting it mount You know she's she's very Used to dealing with the sort of political machinations of On Capitol Hill. She knows how to deal with her caucus how to deal with Republican pressure. It's not something she's not used to I'm not going to go so far to say she enjoys it but It's not something that's going to cow her or You know forced her to do something that she thinks is unwise You you know that said I think she understands based on her public comments past. Couple of days that Her her sort of strategic position as a roading. And she's going going to have to make a move Fairly let's take a call. PJ is on the line in Brooklyn. Pj you're on WNYC. Yes Hi good morning So can you tell me. Why do you think Nancy? Pelosi hasn't subpoenaed John Bolton since he said he's willing to speak to Congress. What's her has tation al-Sham so that's an excellent question? And it's one that we've been asking up here It's actually been asking for weeks if not months wants before This week when John said he was willing to testify in the Senate The answer was this that the house else was engaged in a rapid Fast moving investigation of of of trump's behavior vis-a-vis Ukraine and that Bolton's testimony would would be contested That he would resist at that they would have to go to court and convince a judge and perhaps not only one judge but District Court Judge and Appeals Court. Judge perhaps even the Supreme Court to rule in the houses favor process. That would take many months And the house basically said Adam Schefter. Nancy Pelosi said that we don't have time for this. This is a this is a matter of great urgency and national security. We're going to move forward board with our impeachment. Probe Without John Bolton we're in a different situation out the articles have been tasked John Bowes boldness come forward and said he would testify in the Senate and there's definitely people in the house who are saying you know what we can't let John Bolton choose his venue We we should bring him back here in the House but at this point Adam Schiff has said publicly that He believes that this is going to be up to the Senate all of the The the message that the that the speaker has been sending. Is that Now that this is now going to be moving to the Senate that they're they're You know whole goal right now is to try and force more fair and full trial in the Senate where you do have testimony from people like John Bolton and a number a couple of other administration when this who have not appeared yet and that hasn't changed yet but if You know perhaps that does change if if we get to the point where You know we get into a Senate trial It becomes clear that Republicans aren't going to be calling witnesses and that The only way that that John Bolton Mi- testify under oath that the House forces them to. PJ thanks for your call. Mike One Dynamic here. That's really interesting interesting to me. Is that even in the short time. Really since Those kind of High High Voltage House Intelligence Committee Hearings with a lot of different interesting witnesses. Even since the short time since that ended a number of good government groups and news organizations have gotten free to freedom of information. Requests fulfilled that. Really fill in the picture about the behind the scenes jeans mechanics of withholding aid from Ukraine Postponing A White House meeting for the new Ukrainian leader and kind of what was going going on inside the White House. It seems to sort of suggest In some sense that outside groups are have better tools to get this information than Congress itself does and so. I wonder what you think happens if the congressional investigation really seems to diverge from the press investigation education if if basically this goes to the Senate and it kind of dies but at the same time papers like The Washington Post continue to surface new and Troubling information about our government being used in what looks like a quid pro quo so this is all part of the pressure. That's on the Senate right now. How that they're feeling from The House to you know do their due diligence in hearing from you know very relevant witnesses and getting the very relevant eleven documents some of which we've seen come out through these freedom of Information Act requests You know within the House has voted to impeach the president. They've they've taken about his grave rave a constitutional stop as you can possibly imagine They haven't ruled out Continuing these investigations continuing to gather evidence but at the end of the day. They've taken the votes and you know they've done Really their ultimate task and Completing this process But now they're hoping that the Senate.

"To say but no one's raised their right hand and said I swear where to God. What I'm telling you is the truth and for Democrats? That's the final piece. They have enough to impeach. Obviously he's been impeached. They have enough of this was done on the marriage to remove him. But this is more this puts tremendous pressure on Republicans to think hard about their vote in the Senate again. I I don't think they will sway them but it's a very different for anyone who says it's hypocritical to be arguing for live witnesses. Now they are. It is totally apples and oranges in nineteen ninety. Eight puzzle was put together. There weren't any more pieces. We have big pieces as of this puzzle yet to come together just last week. An news story came out citing former White House aide saying that that they know that the person who told Donald trump that it was Ukraine. Interfering in our elections was Ladimir Putin so when you saw aw Republican at Republicans standing up and screaming about Ukraine. Meddling that talking point came from Vladimir Putin. That's a big piece of the puzzle. There are more are pieces that we should see so. That's why I'm for this time I'd be more than willing to admit now that I'm not in the game to say. Oh Yeah I'm a hypocrite. I just was doing my the job and I'm sure there. You can find other examples where I was hypocritical but this is different. Would you put odds on them. Getting sworn testimony. I mean I think it's fair to say it's still be would be somewhat circus like to have some of the witnesses on the floor. I would not put odds on Bolder move any actually being on the floor. I'd put better odds but not still good odds on Bolton Mulvaney and the two guys from Owen be a WHO actually facilitated all of this stuff up Being deposed and maybe even being deposed on camera the political game. That's being played right now. Is Democrats only need four Republican. Oh can senators to defy Mitch. McConnell and vote with the Democrats on what the rules of the trial are remember in nineteen ninety nine. Trent Lott and Tom Dashon got together. And in a very painstaking way. But very clever way reached an agreement that puts this It was a two step process. They reach an agreement. That said. Here's how we're going to go forward and then in the middle of the trial we're gonNA take another vote on witnesses and that's what they did in the middle of the trial. They voted and they voted to do these depositions. It was something that the Democrats could live with The Republicans live with. We were livid at the White House we were like. We didn't think it should happen but we didn't. We didn't have vote which should tell you something about the the change dynamics. I think that there are enough vulnerable. Republican senators that they are going to strongly consider siding with the Democrats witnesses There was an ABC. Paul out that showed showed seventy five percent of Americans think there should be live witnesses. Sixty five percent of Republicans. Think there should be live with Mrs of your in Colorado. You're Kazakina these are powerful arguments. While all of this is going on the Democrats are still trying to suss out who their nominee is going to be going into twenty twenty and last week. We saw a debate with seven candidates at the moment. What did you make of the debate? What do you think this is the final seven and the nominee will come out probably it right around Super Tuesday? Don't think we'll know the nominee by Super Tuesday. The most significant seven were not onstage although they met the criteria but I do think the Mike Bloomberg's money impacts the process best so you can't dismiss him is Bloomberg really in this to get the nomination or is he in this just a mess with trump. He's in this to get the nomination. He he can mess with trump without being in the race. I think is just my theory. I'm on Bloomberg. I think he's betting on coming in disrupting disrupting Super Tuesday. In a way that we go to convention without a nominee and we got four or five candidates sitting around the room and Joe Biden says I can be Donald Donald Trump look at the polls and Elizabeth. Warren says I've got I've got the energy I've got the ideas I've got what people want him. Bernie Sanders says. I'm Bernie Sanders. Yes I got fifteen million people who will walk through fire for me and they turned to Mike Bloomberg Mike Bloomberg takes out a checkbook and says I got a check for five billion dollars anybody with top that and everyone looks around and says we'll go with the guy with five billion dollars because that's important. That's my theory and if my good friends Who worked Mike Bloomberg here in like calling yellow? May you know my number. It's funny when you look back on the year. I did not think we'd be. We'd have so much is clarity on president trump and impeachment. And all of that by the end of this year just didn't and I thought we'd have a lot of clarity on the Democratic field. I thought we'd know by now who the nominee was wrong on both. Obviously we don't know who the Democratic nominee my my prediction of this morning which will hold for a week or so is that Amy Kuchar could win the Kocsis. She had a good debate torment. Judging by twitter which is a small little bubble. She had a great debate. She said several good debates in a row. She's well known in Iowa and the front runner Sir cannibalizing each other and no one is going after her and it's it feels very similar to two thousand and four were Howard. Dean was up there and they were all this fighting. John Kerry just sort of slipped in out of nowhere in early December of two thousand three. He was at four percent and Iowa in last placed in. I think six or seven place He won the Iwa Kocsis. I think Amy Klobuchar can win. The Iowa caucuses with breath twenty percent of the vote. I also think people would could win with twenty two Joe Biden with twenty four Bernie Sanders all of these possible. I don't think once you get out of the the Midwest Amy Cobra Tours appeal is broad enough for her to win the nomination. I don't think that propels her victory in New Hampshire. So New Hampshire becomes a primary unto itself not influenced Iowa then you go to Nevada and South Carolina. We're going to get to the end of Super Tuesday and there's a real chance that we're going to be still sitting here scratching our heads. I have not changed my basic view of the race. It's still Joe Biden's to lose I. Here's the broadest deepest appeal. There's a pole came out last week. That said fifty one percent of democratic registered. Voters are still open to changing their mind. It's effort Joe. Biden's voters and Bernie any senators. They're they're in there. You're going to be a lot of thrash and moving around and it's GonNa be really interesting and again any one of five people can win. The Iowa caucuses in my estimation which is gonNa make it as political junkie. This is GONNA be is going to be a great two or three weeks leading up to it because we're gonNA find out who's got the goods and who doesn't and that's fun to watch and it's important because if you don't have the goods you'll lose to Donald Trump So this is really good for the Democratic Party and I think really good for our prospects. Even though they're beating each other up we will enter two thousand twenty with a wide open race. If we've been sitting here talking about this one year ago I would have thought it highly unlikely that it wasn't down to two people that wasn't Joe Biden and you tell me who Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders on the stage. Last week I think there were four legitimate contenders to get the nomination and one longshot. My workshop being jar because it just I I'm not convinced her for appeal beyond The mid West I don't think star or entry Yang Hang. Have a chance to win this but at this point in the race. That's a lot of people. The campaign started early. There have been six debates I think and they just I haven't sorted anything out and a lot of people keep saying. Why do you do Iowa New Hampshire first? And we probably shouldn't do. I WanNa Hampshire. I The we being Democrats and that should probably change just like the electoral college should change but the one thing forces these people to do is to demonstrate they can do retail politics that they can go and look at voter in the eye and say. Here's why you should vote for me. We're in an age where retail politics are less important given the ability to reach people directly on social media platforms. But I'm not sure that there isn't some positive to to making sure. The Democrat candidate has that ability going into two thousand twenty trump got elected without doing any retail politics politics at all. Close Your eyes and remember the time that he went out and shook hands with people he just doesn't do it. Close Your eyes and think about the time he had a really interesting back can fourth with a voter. He didn't do it so you don't have to do that. Maybe it's minus DALJIT. It is an art that I think is important because it allows allows you to govern better when you can sit in the Oval Office and say I remember Grad Smith in Des Moines. And the problem they were having with with getting their kid to pay for college. These things matter and you have more humane government when you have a politician who's actually interacted with the public because opposed to what we have now which is well and humane is a nice way to put my feelings about the president. Well I'd be interested to see what Bloomberg's role will continue to be whether your prediction of the final four and five billion dollar check rings true but for now thanks to our listeners. Czars for listening this week and for this year until next week Katie. I'm glad that We got together in March. But it's spend like nine months but I'm even happier that you found someone to spend the rest of your life with me kill. We're talking to an engaged Katie Barlow. Yeah yes I'm looking at a beautiful rang. You can't see it Wrestling now but Let me describe the glow and the smile. I I knew you were going to have a happy holiday season but not this happy.

"Pelosi still controls the president's vate here I'm for a Senate trial right not so fast. Frankly I don't care what Republicans say but could hold up in the House make it fall in on itself other countries have seen mass shootings but someone just just open fire on what used to be the KGB. Less than half a mile away. This is after press conference are Ian Panel was with Vladimir Putin when this all went down we will take Moscow in the fires fire's burning for more than a month or only getting bigger. We're looking at temperatures of maximums of one hundred and sixty degrees Fahrenheit. Don't look now but the temperature is rising in Australia from ABC News. This is start here. Brad Milkey are you hiring with indeed you can post a job in minutes set up screener questions then. Zero in on your short list of qualified candidates using an online dashboard get started today at indeed dot com slash. Wash start here. That's indeed dot com slash start here to political observers. Yesterday was the first day of the rest of president in trump's life like unless twenty Republican senator suddenly decide to remove him from office really the worst thing that can happen to him before election. Day is done in fact speaking to reporters at the White House yesterday as a Democratic congressman which parties over impeachment. The president was in a good mood. said this didn't even seem real. I don't feel like I'm being impeached. Because it's a hoax. But it is real. He has been impeached and yesterday house speaker. Nancy Pelosi had real practical questions about what to do next. The next thing for us will. I'll be blunt we see. The process is set forth in the Senate. The way this works is when the House impeaches the president the Senate whole trial. Well that only can begin when the house transmits the articles of impeachment over to the Senate. These things actually have to deliver on the hours leading up to this moment we learned she might not do that. ABC's Trish who leads our coverage on Capitol Hill. She's basically been awake for what forty eight hours. I thought this was over. Dude what happened. It's supposed to go slightly Louis more according to plan if you think about the Clinton impeachment trial this thing sort of happened you know in a textbook fashion Brad. Nothing happens in Washington Chink these days. That has anything to do with the textbook. I think they burn that textbook long ago. It's really anyone's guess. At this point it started as a suggestion. I vote the proudly for these two articles of impeachment. And then I hope the house retains control of the articles and then suddenly Nancy Pelosi was telling us that that's what she's doing. So we always make our decision to go to send it when we see what they're on the Senate side she thinks she has leverage to make the majority leader in the Senate. Mitch McConnell come to some kind of agreement on witnesses and they wanted upfront for myself. I continue to believe that. The unanimous bipartisan precedent. That good enough for President Clinton ought to be good enough for president trump at this point We're thinking that potentially during this recess that's going on right now now that perhaps the articles get transmitted. She has to name the house impeachment managers. I was not prepared to put the managers and that bill yet because we don't know the arena that we are in frankly I don't care what the Republicans say. So you're right. It's critical that those articles transmitted in their transmitted by the managers and that's all done in a resolution that has to pass the house and that's what we're waiting for but we I'm confused because every point of this Democrats were being asked. What's the point of this if the Senate it's not actually going to convict president trump and Pelosi's answer was like it doesn't matter what the Senate does like we are not the Senate? We're just GONNA do what our job is if they don't want to do their job. That's on them right but suddenly what they do worry about what the Senate is up to. I mean how is this being received on Capitol Hill Right. You know. It's really sort of head scratching because the argument all along has been and president trump. They said was a national security threat and poses a continuing threat to the integrity of our next election. There was some thinking. You know that Speaker Pelosi. When she tried this gambit maybe she's trying to get under president trump skin? We know she's good at that crazy. Nancy Pelosi's she's House Democrats. We know he wants a full and quote unquote fair trial. The Senate is very very capable We have great. Senators Senators Republican senators. So maybe she's trying to use a little bit of that leverage to get the witnesses that Democrats want before witnesses. We propose have direct knowledge of why the aid to Ukraine was delayed. This whole exercise but Schumer I think is politically driven but I tell you it really does the lie. The argument argument that he's such a threat he needs to be removed from office. Now if we're suddenly going well into January before we see a trial in the Senate I mean if we see trello arl amid partisanship on impeachment. That houses found some common ground to keep the government open through the end of the fiscal year. Meanwhile Trish do we as a government. Do keep spitting putting in some ways right like that when you've actually seen some compromises things in recent days you know. This is what divided government looks like a lot of times they miraculously come to these dagger. Large compromises this is a one point. Four trillion dollar spending bill passed with tons of goodies in it. Congress has just raised the legal age to buy tobacco tobacco from eighteen to twenty one in the US. The twelve weeks of paid family leave for federal all federal workers. They've never had that and the list goes on on and on even down to like sanctions against Turkey. I mean you name it. It's in these bills. The House even passed a massive trae. Bill that's a huge victory for president then trump the president spent a year pushing Congress to ratify. US Mexico. Canada trade deal negotiated to replace Nafta all just a few dozen house members voting enforce it and you know the Senate is passing scores of federal district judges. We'll have one hundred eighty two by the end of the one hundred eighty two. It's unheard heard of and it's really something because it's the worst moment for the president but in some ways it was like the biggest successes of the era happening all around us right now this week So it really was Kinda surprising and a big success as far as Congress whenever they can get out for a holiday a church Turner in Washington. Thank you so much. Thanks Brad..

"And Argenta we Italian uh-huh the the sorceress. Right is that every every culture has a word for it of feeling as if there are people in our community who are vulnerable who are hurting and are made more vulnerable by by the actions of this administration and so what can I due to make concrete change. How can I work with people in a disciplined way to feel as though I'm building a sense of community and a sense of possibility and showing in myself my kids if you have them or the the people that you that you mentor and Organiz with? How can we together start to you? Do the repair to do the healing. That's necessary in our community and I think that comes down to two things one as I said before right now as we're focused on impeachment to say look let's go back to basics. Let's go back to reading the Constitution. Let's go back to rereading the source documents for the impeachment and you find people who could be part of the repairing of the breach right people like the ambassadors People like The career Foreign Service officers who have a lifelong commitment to building democracy and building peace and making America stand for something. So I'd say look at that. Also say look very very locally in community and make sure where you can volunteer put in some time. It's the holidays now. Everybody must have one warm coat at least in their closet that they're we're not using that they could give to somebody else There are so many ways that are small but if everybody said I've a few books that I don't read I I have a coat that I don't wear. I've got some toys for Dr if everybody was doing that then it would all add. Add Up to that larger sense of building community and I think that most important part of washing watching my mother Nancy Pelosi build out team Pelosi. It wasn't just all of the hall of our phone banks and precinct walks and things like that that we do together gather but also The volunteer services that we do together at the AIDS Grove or her annual Thanksgiving traditions of going to the interfaith interfaith breakfast and then to serve meals at Saint Anthony starting room so that people can just get a sense of not only putting public service out into the world but then putting that on the shelf and putting personal service into the world so that as I said at the start were cultivating that beloved community the quality of life for ourselves that we want to defend for other people. Yeah I think that the book makes all of that so accessible which is why I ah I I just love it and I can't wait for people to read it Our final question that we ask everybody as we wrap up the interview is what gives gives you the most hope for our future read. The acknowledgement section of the Nancy Pelosi the swords of individuals and organizations who give me hope what gives me hope is my ten year old daughter. Bella who every day is pushing me mom. Why haven't haven't they solve this problem? Mom Why haven't they solve that problem when she was five her kindergarten class wrote to my mom and they're causing this kind of doomed isn't she. And said what are you going to do about pollution. We have a lot of problems. But we're GONNA start with the problem of pollution and and and they were so from the start. I think that this super young generation the fact that at ten years old you know Bella. I was like well. We're going to ban plastic straws on. I will talk to Sasha so she talked to Sasha bittner swing volunteer disabilities and has cerebral palsy. Ashes said well. I have to use plastic straws because You know the paper ones melt and I could have a seizure with an aluminum one so then she said okay. Well minimized plastic straws because of Sasha like if only public policy could happen as quickly as in the mind of tenure but she had it down because the point I mean is that young generation climate striking. They're they're fighting for healthcare. They're fighting for a better future. They're insisting that the older generations whom I of messed it up still act to fix it and rather than saying you failed. We're GONNA fix it. They said you've messed up. You better figure figure out how to fix it and we're GONNA lead the way and show you so what gives me hope. Is this network that we've been able to build collectively as movement the the movement contributions of Nancy Pelosi but also the movement vision of the newest people to politics and the youngest people Poland coalition. Who Honestly think that there is a life post forty five and a hope post forty five and they are going to demand that we have the equality equity the respect that the founders promised us and they're going collect on that promise? That's what gives me hope that gives me hope to you. Give me hope. Thank you for all that you do and please pass along are great. Thanks admiration to your mother.

And for those of you who don't know about Christine Pelosi a lot of people don't because she's really behind the scenes but she's she's not just speaker Pelosi's daughter. She is extremely influential and active working with her mom working working with the California Democratic Party and as a DNC member she has a lot of Influence so was really cool to sit down and get her kinda.

Six from America's most powerful woman Christine. Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with US my pleasure. Thanks for having me so anything new happening in the news. Yeah I mean I want to talk about your book because it's really fascinating but we gotta talk about the fact that a few hours ago your mother Speaker Pelosi announced at the house would begin. Drafting impeachment articles against trump. Is this something that you guys talk about at it dinner on the phone. Well the funny thing is we're probably the only political family in America. That did not talk about impeachment over Thanksgiving Dinner Dinner. We usually don't talk about politics dinner. We talk about sports. Talk about movies The kids talk about their lives. So one of the things That I talk about in the Nancy Pelosi way is my mom's ability to put it on the shelf. She says and have a life outside of politics so that you can go back into politics refreshed and renewed by your friendships by your relationships and just by your your quality of life because you can't be fighting for quality of life for other people unless you're also actively trying to nurture one for yourself so when we're not putting it on the shelf. How can we as individuals get involved in this impeachment process? Is there something that using. We should be doing. That would be helpful to the house. Members who are Draft articles of impeachment. I think it's really important for us to follow the facts to actually read the synopsis of The testimony and read the synopsis of the Mullahs Report. which really set forward the basis for which we saw? Aw the connection that trump had to Russia again just a little bit of history to remember. Remember watching the Socio Olympics and the athletes go into the athletes village in Russia at so she and saying Gosh this looks like a a terrible dilapidated place and and They were asked not to tweet out the pictures too late and I won't say well. Where'd all the billions of dollars? Go right and for the first time. In his rule suddenly suddenly Putin was getting some very very very bad press at home because he had embarrassed Russia with this slapstick village and it was clear that he had pocketed. The money or interests at pocketed pocketed the money. But they hadn't gone to the Olympics. And in order to reestablish his dominance what did he do he went in invaded Crimea. He went in invaded Ukraine gene. And what's at the United States. Do Response The Obama Biden administration slapped sanctions on Russia for the illegal invasion of Ukraine. The response was that Putin stopped adoptions to the United States from Russia and that was one of the a big fights and the presidential election of 2016 where three and a half years ago Hillary Clinton the presumptive nominee for the Democrats was saying no the sanctions are going to stay in place until you cease and desist your your actions against and in Ukraine and Donald Trump on the other hand was was in the middle of having a meeting supposedly about Russian. Adoptions only about adoptions if you understand that they were in exchange for sanctions and and changing the platform of the Republican Party from being very pro. UK Crane to being very pro Putin something that really disturbed a lot of Ukrainian Americans who were in communities that were very pro Republican so that was a very very big change. So I- sale this to say. Hey the Muller report then goes through systematically what happened over a period of several months. Where Paul Manafort has this peace plan? Even after long after he's been and fired to have an east Ukraine set up with it would have independent elections and then a pro-putin East Ukrainian would win and then therefore cement not only the desire to expand Putin's empire but also to control the natural gas and the pipelines which were of course the lifeline for Russia so that is the basis for which Nancy Pelosi has said to Donald Trump with you all roads lead to Putin so when we get at this summer and we get to the phone? Call where we need you to do us a favor. Though and we find out that the bribery scheme was was to force the newly elected Ukrainian president to make a public announcement that he was not only investigating corruption but investigating the Biden's in particular. And of course. Who is Mr Biden? Mr Biden is Mr Trump's potential rival for president in two thousand twenty. So so I think it's important for people who wanted support the procedures of impeachment to go back and look at the facts understand the time line and an understand particularly the Republicans and the Career Foreign Service military officials who were testifying against Donald Trump. Saying something is wrong here. Something is wrong here and we need to make it right and our only opportunity to make it right is to pursue articles of impeachment. And I I mean I am not particularly bullish on the Senate actually convicting him and teaching him or removing him from office. I guess but are there. Senators that that we can be putting pressure on. Do you have any insight there Is there any possibility not that we could put enough pressure on a few of these senators who might have trouble holding onto their seats in two thousand twenty. I think that what we should do is encourage each. And every member of Congress Congress and each and every senator to follow the facts to read the reports and to commit to the fact that no one is above the law. I think think that when we start talking about it in terms of political strategy we lose the essence of the facts. It reminds minds me of the days when I was a prosecutor and be picking juries and one of the things that you do. When you're picking a jury is something called Voire dear two things number one? Do you have an association. Asian with this person and number two. The question is always. Could you be fair Could you be fair in judging somebody else and most of the time I'm the jurors would say yes. I'm so I think that is the same question. We have to ask each and every member of Congress and each of the House of Representatives and of the United States Senate which is can you. You be fair. Can you read the facts and follow the law and apply the Constitution. Because if you're telling me that you can't be fair because you're too blinded by your party loyalty to really see clearly as to what the prescription and is what is the crime. We're trying to stop. What is the behavior that we are attempting to deter and condemn? If you're not able to do that then why are you taking an oath to the constitution. So I think that what we should do is focus on asking all of them. Everybody should put pressure on on their own members of Congress and their own senators and by that if they're if they're already say that there for pursuing an inquiry. Look at the the facts yourself and talk to them about what those facts mean to you and and think again about those people who were testifying about what they thought was supposed to be a constitutional the process that was illegally offended by Donald Trump. Yeah I think the frustrating part and watching all of these hearings is that it's clear that some of the the people who will be voting can't be unbiased can't separate themselves from their party and just look at the facts and in fact a few hours ago a reporter asked Speaker Pelosi if she hated Donald Trump and And it it seemed like you know maybe you can give us some insight insight into this. It seemed like she was incredibly offended by the question and went on to talk about why she praised for trump regularly that she disagrees with him but she she doesn't hate anybody which was a really wonderful a couple of things that shows her powers. Well what I chose her for her deep faith. She's always been a person of faith. And when I talk about the Nancy Pelosi way in her growing up in Baltimore in Little Italy Baltimore in the parish of Saint. Leo's church where they had their Sunday suppers their Spaghetti Suppers Burson cakewalks and and mass. And and how she was educated by the nuns of instrument of Notre Dame met my father Paul Pelosi at a Catholic University Georgetown University by the time she ran for Congress We had at that point. I think forty eight years of Catholic school education among the five five kids to college like our family has over a one hundred years of Catholic school education nation. And so one thing my mom has always said is that she praised for all presidents democratic Republican. She you know she praised constantly For the country in fact I think that one of the reasons that she gets rent free and Donald Trump's head is because she has a deep reverence for the constitution and for the presidency presidency. In fact far more reverence for his job then he has and she constantly. How's that that thing that she does to him that she did to me constantly growing up instill occasionally? Now come on you you you know a paraphrase. Elijah Cummings come on. You know you're better than this Um does that work on him. I can see a working on you but I'm not sure about him. Well it does work on him and gets them completely shook and he then You know sends out a treat a tweet which is really a self diagnosis projected at her. He's obviously very nervous today. So the word was nervous So he picks he picks adjectives and adverbs that. Describe his current state of self diagnosis. And and that's just really really clear. So the the fact of the matter is she's got him shook because she cares deeply about the country. If it were just about emotion they would have impeached him. months ago over horrible things that he has done kids in cages. Cutting food stamps for people throwing people off health healthcare. There's a bunch of policy decisions that he has made that have actively harmed hundreds of thousands if not millions of Americans which is why we went back to the house in two thousand eighteen because those millions of Americans rose up and voted to say resist. No stop protect our care improve. Our Care don't cut us off care for example so the fact of the matter is emotion is only GonNa get you so far an politics particularly negative emotion. Yeah deep patriotism is what makes things built to last and that too she is and that's why she refused to be mischaracterized. And then when we find out that the reporter who who asked the question was someone who was me to Dafa Fox network for sexual harassment of employees. It's like really you're gonNA ask somebody else about their values. Give give me a break. I did read that. Yeah you are in just such a hyper partisan world now I grew up in DC. My family's grew up in DC and and So I've seen partisanship for a long time but you know this is completely new this different and even with Democrats. Your mother is A hero one moment and getting all kinds of criticism the next moment. And you know. That's that's what happens when you're a leader when you're in that position but how do you all stay sane and unfocussed with with all of that going on with all the attacks or what your your technique for just keeping moving forward. We responded. She said this morning respond with love. What makes my mom? The happiest is hearing about our kids Always she loves being grandmother. It's her favorite roll out of anything thing and I can always tell we're talking politics. I can tell when she's had enough and she's ready to put it on the shelf. Cushal say House Bella. And that's code for you know we're we're done. If you want to stay on the phone you can be telling me stories about my grandchildren. Otherwise I'm out and so I think I think the key is is to say She loves movies she loves sports. She you know a a very very very big San Francisco giants fan and she's I saw so we often that anyone could be a bigger fan than me. I have to tell you a story about the cover of the book because the cover of the book has this this fire coat on on it and what happened was in two thousand twelve San Francisco giants won the world series and then Barack Obama was reelected president. So we were in our glory. I.

"Yeah me you know. I mean just to take a step further though. It's hard sometimes to ask people to engage because you feel like you don't want to bother someone or whatever but it's important to know that when you're inviting someone to be part part of this movement and to get involved in volunteer subscribed podcast whatever you're inviting them to be part of this thing saying that is bigger than all of us that is GonNa really have an impact on these important elections. It's an opportunity for them like inviting them to an awesome awesome party. And you also for anyone that does this work and in volunteers you know how much better it makes you feel to be an active participant Because at this point with everything that's going on in this country and this historic moment were having with impeachment and with this terrible fascist president. You you were either into action or you are complicit with your complacency Powerful now. Let's your brings you joy. Well I'll say having these impeachment articles filed brings me joy but not just because the house doing their constitutional duty to keep this president accountable. Then no one's above the law but also because it makes me think back on all the good work we did during the mid terms to elect this congress. This Congress Congress is doing what we elected them to do and elections have consequences so It really brings me joy to have worked so oh hard over the last three years and knowing all the volunteers who have just given so much of themselves of their time of their money of their talent talent and to see that come to fruition here obviously we know that Impeachment is the calendars blocked off in January for the trial in the Senate. They need a two thirds majority to do it It's unlikely to zero chance that he will be removed from office from the Republican controlled Senate. That just shows you again. Elections have consequences and we have a very important job to do in two thousand twenty but it brings me joy to see our elected. Representatives lives doing what we sent him there to do. That's a great reason to joyful for sure. And what pisses you off more. I'm really frustrated. Frustrated about next week's democratic debate and that there are no people of color who have made it onto the debate stage and I understand that with so many candidates running which I think is a huge mistake for us but with so many candidates running you do have to have some sort of parameters in emplaced. But I don't think that they have have come up with the right parameters. I think that asking the candidates to focus on number of donors even even even if it's small dollar donors but number of donors is sending the wrong message for for what our Party is supposed to be And I you know I question the polling. That's taking place. I think that when you are consistently excluding the people who have the least economic power in the country traditionally and have the biggest hill to climb when it comes to running for president. Then it's a huge mistake and we're going to see that in next. It's a really great point and I don't know like I don't dig deep into Poles but you know I don't know what demographic they're going out to these pulls to well I mean I think the latter that Clinton was in New Hampshire and it's like well okay. Yeah that's the New Hampshire is not a representative and that's not the only poll that's us but it's not the representative group of people from you know of our country. I've I've never been pulled. Call me and ask me when I think right. Well I wanted to know what you thought. And so thank you for sharing here anger anger and betrayal with us. Tell me what well earned. And you're at one hundred percent right. Yeah tell me what has pissed off this week. Well what has many pissed off. Is the attacks on food. Assistant Programs Food Stamps. SNAP program as being shredded headed by the USDA. I just it's horrible fascist mean cruel policy after cruel rule policy from this administration. And you know it's not just this administration. Republicans in general haven't been crazy about social programs and they're always looking to stop quote unquote giving handouts. But you know when we're at a point where the one percent is just has all the power for all the money and it is so difficult for people who are living in poverty to lift themselves out of that the simple act of giving them assistance so that their children and families families have food have food stamps it is deplorable. These actions are absolutely unconscionable. And there's actually an action action going on by move on right. Now they've got a petition and We'll post the petition on on our site you know because it's a pretty long url or you can find it but it says tell Usda Stop the attacks on food assistant programs for hungry Americans please. Everybody sign this petition Russian. This is something that should not go. Unnoticed and unspoken for a green. It's it's very angering to anger making king it's anger making okay. So are now that we're all good and angry and fired up. We've got one action item for the week. which is to Sign move on's petition around the food stamp cuts Aniston's where we have to we have that and we have A. Ah Get people at at your holiday parties to subscribe to the podcast. We have so much to do to actions. What else should should people be doing? Well we're you know. We're on a pledge drive but we're we're on our end of the year push at swing left to We talked about this last week. We don't often ask for money other than raising money for candidates raising money for the Senate which I should definitely be doing. Obviously we need to put pressure on these senators who are going to be of voting on impeachment next next month but we do you need to keep the doors open. And the phone's phone's ringing. It's swing left is a pledge. Drive phone's ringing. I don't know if we actually use phones. I think it's all L. Slack in zoom calls and stuff but anyway cost lots of money does. Yeah so if you appreciate the work that we're doing and Dan.

"We have a lot to talk about. So let's get into the first thing we want you to do is to tell us who you are. Oh okay well. My name is Eleanor Randolph. I come from the south as you can probably here but anyway so I've been a journalist forever and then Howell Raines hired me for the editorial board of the New York Times more more than twenty years ago and so he wanted me to cover the city and so and the state and so I started out covering Giuliani and then in writing for the editorial board we wrote about the Bloomberg Administration I essentially covered Bloomberg for the New York Times editorial board for those twelve of years. He was in office anyway when he was running in two thousand and one he was unknown they hadn't They nobody including including those of us at the New York Times thought he would get very far. We Endorse Smart Green by the way and I went back and read that editorial. Was that your idea. Yes yeah you know I mean okay. Let's you know onward and upward but Do they hold it against you. The euro this editorial for The New York Times. He made fun of me for you. Know he's made fun of like what does he say you know not bad for the person who endorsed you know. Not Not not many mistakes for somebody who worked for the New York Times. So that's that's his sort of general view and then towards the end of that I I decided I would really like to write more about even like to write a biography can I I want to ask Elinor because you you've I mean your book is extraordinary. You've really gotten to know this. This man there seems to be room for just one of this type of person Democratic presidential campaign which is sort of the the old school person whether it's the old white guy or the old school I mean Joe Biden right now with no malarkey. Tour is that guy you listened to Iowa voters. They kinda like that he. He's that person for for a certain segment of the voting population. Can Michael Michael Bloomberg doesn't have that history with Democratic Party. He doesn't. He does not that history with any party already but he does have a history with with activism and philanthropy with the climate issue with the tobacco issue with the gun violence issue these cities which we're going to get into a little bit? Can he become that guy. I've been there done that. I really know this and become that person and replaced Joe Biden. You know that's the question. I don't know the answer to it and and I know this is this is all I really know is that his people are saying that he got in because he saw these polls in key states in the states that Obama won and then trump took back and they saw trump winning again in those states and they decided that that Biden in hacking it and they don't actually come after Biden. You know they and he's said he's not gonNA come after any of the Democrats he's going to go straight for trump Well you know. One of the one of the measures of how serious candidates are about the climate issue has been whether they're prepared to get rid of the filibuster. If that is a measure of how of getting Eddie if getting rid of the filibuster is a measure of how serious a candidate is about climate. It's hard for me to imagine that Bloomberg would make an effort a to give her the filibuster you know I have not heard him say anything about that and maybe he has but I would think as as a practical practical man he would. Here's my dilemma. With Bloomberg I trust him more than anyone else. Currently running now the Jay Inslee is out to to put climate front and center on the other hand fixing climate requires the kind of extraordinary interventions in in the economy that we haven't seen really since the original new deal is Bloomberg who is really a moderate centrist capable of the kind of extraordinary you might even say radical interventions that we are going to have to have in order to lower our our greenhouse gas emissions by five times more than we're doing now at least five times greater probably more than that mainly he sees climate change he sees himself is the The PRO public health candidate and climate change is at the very top of that list because because if the climate if the globe is not healthy you know you can forget the biggest issue out typhoid or anything else traffic or or whatever could go go. David and I know look Mike Bloomberg he was behind the beyond coal movement which has shut down. You know helped. Shut down every plant in America. That was financially risky. He he has funded the we are stolen. Movement and America's Pledge Movement he has supported the IPC in the United Nations climate efforts. He has really been there at every step of the way. Here's my question though. Do the activists who are pushing pushing pushing do they give him any credit for that or is he just viewed viewed as an old white guy with a lot of money run. You know those people that felt the green new deal was the way to go he kind of disparaged. Thank you said it was pie in the sky right. What he was basically saying is if I became president I could roll back all these things trump does you? I know all the you know we can. Stop Dumping Colin's residues in streams. We could deal with some of the air quality issues that trump is just you know open the skies to this the the John Cat of a lot of these industries. We can deal with those things as president but anything you have to deal with Congress. You're probably GONNA have a Democratic House and a Republican Senate. You GotTa make sure you can get what you can get from them. So I would think in terms of if you've got to be president because he's been so adamant against against what trump has done administratively. I would think he would roll back a lot of those changes. I don't know whether anybody's GonNa ever give him credit my. That's my real question here. So that's my question. I understand that the star that he has positioned himself to the right of the people who are advocating for green new deal. He has said it's pie in the sky and and that a lot about activism stuff is not baby his cup of tea and so it it might not be surprising that that he's alienated some of the the more active elements within the population. On this issue no. I think that's right. I mean if you look at almost every issue but certainly this one he he is basically a pragmatist and a centrist. When you talk to amy talks about what we can get done? The Art of the possible not the art the not just simply the goals. The problem of course is the future. You know what happens down the line you know. I was Your chatter on him on his run for mayors fascinating I mean and I wonder what lessons are there if any that you would extrapolate to run for president. That's a great question you know. There's some some things that you can take from two thousand and one and put it here in two thousand in nineteen twenty twenty and the main one is that these brought in his money. He's going on television to introduce himself. If you have not seen a Bloomberg ad on television you have not been watching television you know. And and so he he you know he spent thirty five million. I think already and I mean to be fair to him. He's promised that he will spend a one hundred million in digital Just digital that is exactly the Republicans Kenny. He can you know. I mean if he spent a billion dollars it you know it's chump change for him I've you know I ask myself last night getting ready for this interview. How do I feel about Bloomberg and money hand sympathize with Elizabeth Warren's position on this that you know this country country we shouldn't have billionaires in citizens united and companies coming in and dominating our politics and then I said okay well if that's the only way to see real progress on the single biggest issue facing the human species? Would that be enough to overcome my resistance to the the idea that a rich guy can come in and by the presidency and you know what the answer is pretty much yes lord. I left the National Science Foundation just to take on the climate issue eight years ago so clearly I mean. I've made data my own personal decision. I'm all in on this issue. We have to address this issue. I anybody who is all in and serious about this issue. I will support and Mike Michael Bloomberg it quite honestly has been there on this issue front and Center for a for years and years and years does that qualify to be president. That's a different question to me. So you you know A Democrat doesn't win the presidency without substantial support from African Americans and Latinos just doesn't happen happen given Bloomberg's history with stop and Frisk which we all know about. Do you think that Bloomberg is capable of generating substantial support from black people and from Latinos. You know I think that's the big question I think that's really the for his campaign to go forward. He's going to have to find a way to do that now. There's some small small Hints about how he might do it and it cities once again right after he announced. Two mayors One from Columbia South Carolina one from Gusta Georgia both african-americans endorsed him. So he has a black support he he has Hispanic support. It's just that There's so much residual anger in New York City about stop and Frisk and then he believed he was saving lives. That was you know if you if you look at his apology. He that's what he was saying. He was saying I was wrong wrong. I believed that I was saving lives in these high crime areas in guns away for people who by searching people for guns and you know some of these were kids. It's that had coke bottles in their pockets and things like that and everybody who I mean. There's long section about it I've written Allot about stop and Frisk and everybody who looked at. It just knew that at some point he had to realize he had wanted and after Giuliani to have good relations with the black and Hispanic community. And this had damaged that eleanor. You've you've Britain Terrific book the many lives of Michael Bloomberg Really appreciate your coming in and talking about whether Bloomberg will be the champion champion Climate Movement.

"Hi Welcome to climate twenty twenty podcast about climate change and the twenty twenty election. I'm David Gilbert of the Climate Media Company the Years Project and I'm Jeff Nasdaq founded climate nexus communications group. So Jeff. Today we're going to. We're going to take a deep dive into The most recent entrant into the race for the Democratic nomination for president Michael Bloomberg. And we're going to have with us. Eleanor Randolph Remarkable a couple a journalist. Who's just written a biography of Bloomberg called many lives of Michael Bloomberg and Eleanor will be with US studio She spent I think eighteen years on on the editorial board of the New York Times. I read the book and you really get a sense of the sky and the first thing though is that. You're not going to be here with me next week week. Because you're going to be in Madrid number twenty five cop twenty five Cops for the Conference of Parties is that is that right. That's correct yes. It's the the basically. The framework for International. Climate negotiations has been place for decades. So what do you think we're going to hear from this cop twenty five. This is the beginning of the big push toward the end of next year to increase the ambition of every country in the world beyond the initial targets in the Paris climate accord record because twenty twenty is a key right if donald trump and the United States is awol who leads a on the world. Stage is at China well Probably probably not they tend to not want to lead in these types of negotiations. India certainly is not gonNA lead a Saudi Arabia and Russia. Spend all their time trying to fight for the status ASCONA. Keep ambition from occurring. You know interesting The first day there was quite a congressional delegation that went over to open the the negotiations to Speaker Speaker of the House. Nancy Pelosi took a rather large congressional delegation with her. Nancy Pelosi said ignore that man in the High Castle Donald Trump. We're still here to say to all of you. On behalf of the House of Representatives in the Congress of the United States. We're still in it. We're we're still in it so let's talk about about Nancy Pelosi for a second. I mean this is a fairly bold move for her to take a whole Bunch of Democrats from the House of Representatives to Madrid for the climate conference. Why she doing? It is but I'll tell you she actually understands the climate issue well quite well personally She has as understood it for a longtime. When I was at the National Science Foundation I was able to convince her in her senior staff to take a congressional delegation to listen to climate scientists in the shadow shadow of the melting glaciers in Greenland? This was more than a decade ago. She was fascinated by that climate science briefing and she would go to the floor in speak knowledgeably and personally about the climate change issue so she actually cares quite a lot about this issue. She given a chance in twenty twenty one she she would absolutely love to finally win the fight that she almost one over with cap and trade way back when so when she was sitting on a couch with with. Newt Gingrich talking. I used to be speakers speakers. We don't always see. I do know but we do agree. Our country must take action to address climate change. We need cleaner forms of energy. Not and we need them fast enough of US demand action from our leaders but people have forgotten she got that bill passed in the House of Representatives will die with Newt's help with new tell it died in the Senate. The reason why she went is to send that message. US leadership matters on this issue on the global stage. It is absent right now in this current White House. Let's be real about that. There is no leadership and in fact it's worse than no leadership they're actively trying to rollback back every single environmental regulation known to humankind. You know understanding is that in Madrid. There are some very specific questions that are going to be coming up. For instance the issue love loss and damage which is to say? How much are the the major emitters the US Europe China China. How much are they going to pay for the damages and the loss that the smaller island countries and the smaller countries in general and the poor countries are sustaining because of climate change? So that question. The question of finance has been at the center of the talks. International climate talks for quite some time. Yes yes it's true that the United States is a major major but that's historically and per capita gross carbon dioxide emissions China. Is I by ten ten miles. I mean they are headed towards seventeen Gigi tons of coal of greenhouse gas emissions a year Gross now they have a much larger population on The United States is actually not per capita per capita gross. Down at states is way way behind that. So this is why the China question Ron Greenhouse Gases and carbon is is so critical there at a point where they're providing maybe forty percent of the global emissions. But they're they're doing that because their economy is growing and they're trying to make make up for time they're trying to catch up to the United States so the United States historically has been a very large and is still number two three or four in the world and so this question question loss and damage is should the United States pay for effectively past sins when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions. And that's been at the heart of the discussions and instill an ongoing discussion at these. Talks will be yet again front and Center in Cop Twenty five so this is this is not a very optimistic moment that we're living through in terms the climate right now is still going up You have the The Secretary General United Nations saying that the point of no return is right over the horizon. I can see it the point of no return the point beyond which were really screwed would I can't prevent catastrophic consequences. We may already be there so I I'm curious just I mean I'm sure you've spoken to some of the participants who are going to be present in Madrid just informally. What's the state of mind? Mind that the delegates have to accept that you know What do they expect to come out of this as anybody hoping for some really positive outcome many of us who've been lots of these cops what we hope for is at the end that the world leaders will in fact put in place a framework at the end of the COP that allows for twenty twenty to become a pivotal year? So let's imagine let's we've you know we've been talking about this on climate twenty twenty for for weeks now. Let's imagine that the United States is in the Paris climate agreement at the end of twenty twenty. And let's imagine that Brexit has been and settled. China is in a discussion with the United States. Again India is in a three way discussion with the United States China and Russia and Saudi Arabia Arabia have been pushed to the sidelines again. Which is where we were several years ago? Then twenty twenty becomes the year not only politically in the United States. But also globally around this issue in order for that to happen. Certain things must be put in place at cop twenty five and I think that's what we're all hoping for is that everybody agrees not to get sidetracked too much finance issues not to get sidetracked by the lack of US leadership but gets on with their business and establishes a framework that allows allows twenty twenty to be that pivotal. I want to get off this point but I have to to push a little bit of this. What does it mean to establish a framework? What does that concrete? What does that mean it? It means that everybody agrees to come to the next cop in you know at the end of two thousand twenty with a new ambition that they they say we will do that. They commit to it. They sign it. The ministers and the world leaders agreed to that they get to the end of COP. Twenty twenty five and they say yes. Twenty twenty is the year that we turned the corner and we commit to ambition. Is there any way that can happen without a new occupant in the White House in November. Twenty twenty yes us and that's again where we started this discussion. The reason why Nancy Pelosi the speaker of the House went to the opening of these negotiations is to deliver a message. There is a congress in the United States. There are business leaders. There are mayors. They're our governors lots and lots and lots of governors. Who are all committed to this issue and we are still in that message? Delivered to this negotiations says the United States. Somehow some way will be a party to this will. Oh Bien and will increase its ambition. That's why she went so just as As the cop twenty five copper got underway former senator and secretary of State John John Kerry announced something new initiative calls world. Gentlemen Welcome back to me but I know country is getting the job done. I mean the simple reality the is that we are way behind way behind the eight ball. Things are getting worse not better a little bit of history. John Kerry sxr state put in a lot of time and effort as a sort of CO architect of the Paris climate accord so a lot of personal and professional interest in that. So that's the first thing. The second thing is when he was chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee I had the pleasure of breathing him on a number of occasions and as a United States senator he could answer questions without staff present he knew this issue backwards and forwards he. He really is quite knowledgeable about the climate issue. Just as Nancy Pelosi the speaker of the House so the two of them really would like to see cop twenty five succeed. So that's why they launched World War Zero on the eve of the next round of international national climate negotiators. What's what's the main point of World War zero? What is it trying to do? So I had a chance to talk to the staff director of World War zero at length last week. And here's here's what they I hope to do with this. They hope to mobilize an army of very interested voters around this issue. They're going to hold town halls all across the country in all the key states in all the the the key primary states all the key swing states they want to mobilize an army of a Democratic voters around this issue for twenty twenty which is the sweet spot of what we've been talking about in climate twenty twenty world. War Zero is a mobilization effort awareness and then voter registration and voter delivery at the ballot box. I think it's a really cool idea in glitzy. These folks getting behind it. I mean these are these are big players all right so who said this. In the long term climate change could literally turn the planet into a barren sphere like Mars and kill everybody. WHO said that? I'll take a guess. Stephen Hawking I I have no idea it was Michael Bloomberg Michael Bloomberg and when we come back. We're going to have eleanor randolph. Who wrote the biography of Michael Bloomberg many lives of Michael Bloomberg? So we'll be back back I Jeff and I want you to know the climate twenty twenty is powered by Exelon.

"pelosi" Discussed on The New Yorker Radio Hour
"Yorker Radio Hour on this episode of the podcast conversation with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Pelosi sat down with Jane Mayer the magazine's chief Washington correspondent on October twelfth so thrilled to have you here I I understand that things have been really dull in Washington recently and you have tons of free time on your hands to join us so thank you very much for coming we will talk about some of the issues I know you WanNa talk about but I have to say I think we kind of have to start with impeachment so I just wanted to get a few could an idea of when it was if you could talk to us about the moment when you felt it was time to go ahead and authorize the inquiry into impeachment what was going on at that moment and what we thinking at that point how did it happen so you WanNa talk about that okay now that hadn't had what would we be talking I hope we'll have a chance to talk about how we are lowering the cost of prescription drugs by hr three and what we are doing right now just to put this in tax we have been since we the majority so we're legislating we're investigating and we are litigating our investigations have led us to the court where we want five cases in the court of she's got to be a record it's got to be a record loss for any administration five rulings in one day hopefully will recognize that because he this is what this is just to tell you the moment but if there is a moment you be the judge but here's the thing this is not anything to be gleeful about for our country it's a very sad time when there is thought that the president of the United States and the truth and the data and the fact show that the president of the United States has violated his oath of office and why is that important our founders at the time of the revolution of the Dark Days Thomas Paine said the times have found US times have found us to establish this democracy and the rest you will call and on September seventeenth seventeen eighty seven the constitution was adopted that day when Benjamin Franklin came out of independence hall onto the steps they said I'm not Frankel dot ranked do we have monarchy or republic he said a republic if we can keep it the times have found us to keep that Republika set republic is based on on separation of power cocoa branches of government a check and balance on each other said we have a president who says I can do whatever I want and acts accordingly and tries to undermine the powers of the legislative branch so isn't about any disregard for him that's for the election this is our democracy at risk if we do not have of checks and balances separation of power co equal branches of government we have a monarchy a republic if we can save it if we can keep it okay so the moment he declared that he do anything he wanted under article two awhile back and so what I was trying to figure out was and you've been under a tremendous amount of pressure particularly from the left to to do this but you it was interesting watching you because you're waiting till the moment when you felt you absolutely had to do this and so what was it that changed was there some particular piece of information or a meeting you're in a phone call with him what actually happened when let me just say that I don't view pressure as a reason for me to do something however does give me leverage it does uh-huh so as far as my members are concerned whatever was right for them at their moment because there was plenty that the president had done evidenced in the report and just other things that were impeachable offenses for me timing is everything timing everything so I said when we get more facts when the truth has more clarity we will be ready we will be reading and when the on September seventeenth two thousand nineteen was the very day blown the explosion of the telephone call with the president and the president of Ukraine that was a limit of revelation in terms of okay it's understandable this had clarity and so was the following Tuesday I have no you want the moment it's The New Yorker a not sure exactly what the moment was I think I may be probably preceded this but the assurance of it came president called me in the morning don't tell him by telling you this okay he wanted to talk about all the things he was doing thing to pass what he knows is not only a passion with me but a passion with that I'm going to get it done passing background check legislation to end gun violence in our country so take all the progress that we're making on crowned checks and this and that and I said well I would be interested to learn because I don't know of any progress the Democrats and the Republicans are working the other I don't know what Democrats you're working with we have sent a bill over two hundred days before that call so he goes on has over ninety percent approval in the public ninety percent approval on there are some people who disagree SAS you're Mr Ten percent ninety percent of the people want back they are Democrats and Republicans independence or gun on NRA members hunters their veterans and all the rest so then he decided to change subject which was probably the purpose of the call about the call it's perfect now Mr President it's not perfect it's wrong aw it's wrong when he said there is no prude quo quo doesn't need to be a PREDISPO- understand that but there is a pre br bad the cuisine of events a couple days before he withheld who is probably going to grant is a quid pro quo however even without that just asking the head of state of a country to dig up dirt create they're on a political opponent that's not right but his insistence that it was so right was just made it so imperative that we know her intel him I was going to proceed I said actually I was going to call you myself to tell you what we're kind of observing here and I'll be talking to my members today because they were just coming back on that Tuesday I have to make a speech to the UN general assembly right now and you're telling me this yeah so anyway his complete lack of any sense and said you violate your oath of office undermine Dr National Security and jeopardize the integrity of our elections which is fundamental to our democracy it wasn't a pleasant that's what happened so we'll see we'll have an inquiry give them all the opportunity to introduce whatever exculpatory information he might have any evidence that approve something to the contrary to be very fair because our founders they gave us other guys e. pluribus unum for many one they didn't have any idea how many we would be or different would be from each other but they knew we always had to strive to be one one nation under God indivisible and they had their differences they fought vehemently against each other sometimes using canes but they always had to remember that we're one country so in the interest of how we go forward to not have it be further divisive for our country but to try to begin a healing process for the Constitution for the republic for our democracy we think that the time ed found us to do just that get to maybe about.
"pelosi" Discussed on Today, Explained
"Okay Nancy Pelosi just made a huge announcement. The actions of the trump presidency revealed dishonorable fact of the president's betrayal of his oath of office betrayal of our national security and betrayal the integrity eighty of our elections therefore today. I'm announcing the House of Representatives moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry Andrew Pro Vox. We haven't had you on the show since yesterday. How did this happen so fast. You were just telling me that Nancy Pelosi thought impeachment was a deadened political loser that is what she has thought all year but Nancy Pelosi is also a leader of her caucus who can take her members temperature and know where the party is going and what developed extremely quickly over the past twenty four hours is a consensus among Democrats. What's that really this latest. Scandal about trump and Ukraine was just a bridge too far that something had to be done and that the only real remedy they had was was a more serious impeachment effort and you mentioned yesterday on the show that the progressive wing of the Party was putting pressure on Pelosi as that pressure expanded what really tipped the scales in the end was finally movement among a bunch of moderate Democrats in particular on Monday night seven Freshman Democrats with military backgrounds or intelligence backgrounds many of whom had been notable double impeachment skeptics all year road and OP ed saying fat. If these allegations are true about trump pressuring the the Ukrainian president to open an investigation about Biden perhaps by withholding aid to the government of Ukraine. We believe these actions represent and impeachable offense.

"Pelosi is coming into town. Just what are your feelings about this person who, you know, quite well becoming speaker of the house for a second time shall cut your head off. And you won't even know you're believing. That's all you need to know about her. One. She's persevered. You gotta give credit. No matter. What you think of her? You have to give her credit because she wanted to think about it think about all those presidents. She's endured right? She was the Bush the Bush the Clinton of it. You know, she's been through it all so she's been around. This is not her first. Rodeo is your friend, George Bush would say so she knows what she's doing the new sheriff. Cleaned up. There might need to be a little violent. That's all right. Nancy pelosi. Sure. Advocation? Four. Pardon? Doesn't matter so much the election. Currently Nordea has offered amendments simply the waste time. The last one to see. I believe we have an obligation as a government to be job creators, which give people the means to find their own happiness, but also bring revenue into the treasury. If we just speaking pragmatically at. I won't be answering. Any I've made the statements. I'm going to make nine to standing that later in the day. He will be having a press conference. And after that, I will have a statement available. Just tell you that upfront. So sheriff Pelosi according to her daughter. Cut your head off without you, even though you're bleeding. That's because when you sever the head there's no brain to the blood to the brain. I don't know why our best with her mother will do that just happen. But when she was a speaker of the house and Anthony Weiner was charged..

"Right. The problem is you say is that the way this shutdown is has proceeded both speaker Pelosi and President Trump have given. Categorical? Rejections of this. In other words, speaker Pelosi I think was asked is there anything Donald Trump could give you that. You know, there's no basically, not a dollar nothing. Right. And nothing that he could do that would get her to change. And of course, President Trump says he's not going to sign anything for this. Now. I mean, this is this is different from the usual shutdown are people trying to blame the other guy. Right. That's the usual. Logic earlier will last year early last year, we had the Schumer shutdown when he called for it on DACA believe right? Right. And then by Tuesday, I think it started Friday he was crying because its members were abandoned. I just say a couple of things to two points at strike me as one I think Donald Trump may I don't know that he'll win. But I think he may change the combination here in that the wall is his signature issue even more than the other things that he promised, and he shown on trade, for example, that he's willing to take pain. In other words. Not the paint himself. But let other people like on trade the economy the price pay the price for it. So I think he's not like the normal politician that is just a frayed of the I think he's willing to take a lot of pain. I'm not sure MRs Pelosi is willing to take the pain. I'd also say is we we point out both of made categorical statements Trump. I'm not going to sign anything unless I get funding. Mrs Pelosi nine nickel for the wall. However, if deal came along the lines, you suggested, I think that MRs Pelosi could live with that. I don't think she would be punished for it quite and people would say you said not a dime, but should say, yes. But I got the DACA. Whereas if the opposite happened if Donald Trump because of the way, he's laid out its case if he ends up signing something without any significant funding for the wall. I think he's the big loser there. I think his base starts to hell. And I think the opposition becomes in bowling. So I think I think it's not clear. To me who could be the bigger winner. But it seems clear that the way this has been cast that Donald Trump stands to lose more than MRs Pelosi by it by giving in by giving it what do you think him? I agree with that. I was struck this week though, how determined the White House is to make sure that that doesn't necessarily happen. You've seen a change between all of the press conferences at the president has been giving there's been briefings that have been rolled out to members of congress by the department of homeland security chief charissa Nielsen. Apparently, they attempted to actually do such briefing. When congressional leaders came in to the White House to meet with him. And they didn't wanna listen. So instead they made it available to congress. They're trying to win the war here on the the merits that their argument, whatever those merits are. They're talking a lot about drug flow over the border, and the problem of, you know, illegal aliens and border control, and the the complete jam up within the court system, dealing with all the asylum, applications, etc. And. So very much now trying to talk about the policy questions here. And the president understands he has an enormous megaphone. And that's something they're going to have to do because as this drags on. The press is all in on the other side, and they're going to be running. The daily endless drumbeat of stories about all the the people that are not getting paid the federal employees, the national parks that are not being opened and the pressure will really rise on the White House to roll. I think that that pressure will increase on the White House. The no question, though, the speaker Pelosi does face our own pressures one of which is that this is not if she had her druthers the way she would like to start a new congress. The message Senate showdown over over this issue. I think she would much prefer to be able to talk about what she thinks is her main legislative agenda. They gonna pass a so-called transparency and ethics Bill. They would like to move on some of the issues about healthcare and probably minimum wage Bill. Just kind of move that..

"Yeah. From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac watch Mansi Pelosi becomes speaker of the house of representatives for the second time rare and remarkable political achievement bringing in the new democratic majority. What should we expect from the Pelosi congress, and how it deals with Donald Trump President Trump, plus the first task for the new speaker is the partial government shutdown that continues now pushing towards all beginning of its third week. How long is it going to last meeting at the White House on Friday said the both sides had the stalemate continues. Welcome. I'm Paul zhigo with Wall Street Journal here with my colleague, Bill mcgurn hill. Bill Hypo, Kim strassel Hake him Hypo. So let's let's before we get to the shutdown melodrama. Let's get to speaker Pelosi. I. I think that when you think about it. She was it's very rare. I think Sam Rayburn was the last speaker in the sixties he was speaker the sixties to have regained power in fifties. And sixties regain power as speaker the house after losing it. The waste Nancy Pelosi did this week. And she was of course, speaker for four years from two thousand six to two thousand excuse me, two thousand six what's. Yeah. Two thousand six to two thousand ten and now she will have another two years after routing any critics, and and and competition after you recruit it, I think Cam for just being such a formidable political figuring consolidating support. She is a stair no question. When obviously they won back. Over there were a number of Democrats who had outright campaigned said that they would never vote for her for speaker that was a an electoral promise, they made to their voters many of them reneged on that. And in fact, did vote for her and she managed to get that support with minimal having to trade much away at all a kind of a nothing burger promised that she would only serve four years, but the truth is we don't know where things will stand even two years from now and four years for someone that has been around as long as MRs Pelosi is probably more than enough time because people have been talking about how she was, you know, needed to step aside. Anyway, so she didn't pay much there were fifteen members in the end who voted no, they were probably given a pass because some of them did come from districts where they had made that promise, but she came out on top you do. So you're saying that the they will not be found in their car somewhere. Or or their arms will not. But they will not be their bodies will not turn up the Potomac river somewhere down the the line. It's interesting though, that I mean, she did have the leeway to to say that the the fifteen to give the fifteen a pass. But I'll bet you. She remembers that Bill. I don't think she's going to forget those names, and they could be mired in the banking committee lower reaches for many many years. Yeah. I mean, you, and I thought and Kim I think belief from the beginning from the election that she would win speaker do what she needed to do to get elected. And that said, it is interesting to me which won by three votes. I think right. She had the margin. She knew she knew what she needed. And so she let the other people off the hook one of them with my represented, Mikey, Cheryl, you know, who would running in a formerly renew jersey and there so some of the people, However, I do wonder if. That's a problem for you know, when she was speaker last time, it was clear she was going to be around for a long time. When people think of boss is not going to be there for a long time. It it might make for a little more difficulty in the ranks. Well, but later on when it comes to certain thing. It's interesting though, she had the first challenge she received part from the votes to get speaker were for the rules package that the Democrats together every time you have a new congress house and Senate create their own rules for how to govern the body. And in this case, they created the gonna restore something called pays Yoho budgeting, which is says that if you Adnew spending you have to find cutlass else. It's almost always honored in the breach. Right. It almost never followed. But Democrats say that though, you were pay as fiscal conservatives, but some on the left some of the fr..

"And she says she says that's everyone that wants to express interest in the race. It is clear that Nancy Pelosi is going to have the trickiest path. She's had to be the leader of the Democrats in the house, probably since she became leader, the Democrats in the house back in two thousand two and. I think it is worth noting that even though no formal opposition has been declared yet, she is keenly aware that she needs some of the people Democrats who were when they were candidates out on the trail who are now congressman or congresswoman elect to change their position about voting for her. She is going to probably not have as wide of a margin. And I'm talking purely among Democrats here, she's probably not going to have as wide of a margin. As there are people who said, either, a call for new leadership or I definitely won't vote for Pelosi for speaker. Just so people understand the process two weeks from now inside the democratic caucus there will be a secret ballot. And they will vote on all their leadership in order for Nancy Pelosi to be the caucus the democratic caucuses nominee for speaker, which gets voted on by the entire house on the floor of the house in January. She needs to win a majority of her caucus that seems almost sir. Certainly assured that she can do that some of the folks who said they wouldn't support while they may not support her in their secret ballot in the caucus, but they may eventually support her on the house floor. It is clear that there are probably enough folks who currently claim that they are opposed to her speaker to cause her to have to sort of campaign and win over and convert some of those folks not all of them, she won't need all of them. She will have a little bit of a cushion here where she can lose a dozen votes. Or so instill become speaker? Obviously, though, she's going to have a challenge, and she was peppered with questions about that in the way, she handled it at a press conference today. I want you to take a listen because she basically was like I want all of you to just shout out your questions now get them all out of your system about this topic. And then I will answer it once is what she was saying. And so you'll hear hear reporters throwing questions at her and asking her if she has the two hundred and eighteen votes, she needs to be speaker. And you'll hear her response. Here's. Nancy pelosi. I would never I know. I intend to win the speakership with democratic votes. If that was your question that was your question. The the have overwhelming support in my caucus to be speaker of the house, and certainly we have many many people in our caucus who could serve in this capacity. I happen to think that at this point. I'm the best person for that as I think you can hear there. She is supremely confident of her position. She believes she does have the votes. She does not believe she's going to need any Republican votes. Which would be shocking to me if some Republicans actually voted for Nancy Pelosi on the floor of the house of speaker. She does not believe she will do this with Republican votes. She will do it entirely with democratic votes you here saying, and she is certain that she has the votes to be speaker. She's not betrayed one maiolica of public concern. But it is quite clear. Here where she stands with the American public, and how that impacts how some of these members especially those from red or purple districts, just get into congress where being tagged with Pelosi was one of the real negatives for them to defend against on the campaign, even if it didn't work, even if they got elected they are wary about that. So they're going to have to do their own calculation as leader Pelosi just said, but if you're looking for any public concern from Nancy Pelosi, she was not showing it today at all that does it for this edition of the daily DC. Thank you all so much for listening. The daily DC.
