"pelosi" Discussed on Fresh Air
"Care of small children and so a lot of her energy derived having been having had five children in the space of six years and having to to raise this large family at sort of makes you the leader of a of a caucus in a way and I think some of it is just natural. I think some of it has just got to be the way that that that she is naturally. I've actually asked her this question. I'm certainly not the first to ask. Well where do you get all the energy? How do you do it? And she'll just give you the sort of blank look and say well. I'm Italian we have great stamina and I think she really believes that. She's just genetically superior for being Italian. You know the other interesting thing is about having raising a large family and and like being a leader in a in a congressional caucuses you end up having to be very very efficient with your time and get things done and yet have enormous patience to deal with people who think they're important and can throw tantrums and need to be taken care of. That's right when you think about it. Politicians and toddlers have a lot in common right there. Ego Maniacs. They're self-centered they're unreasonable. They want everything and they want it now and they're not really interested in hearing why you need to get. You need them to do something else so I do think that managing a caucus is a lot like managing a large family. And I think she did learn a lot from that and you know a friend of Nancy Pelosi's when she was still a young ish. Mother said she knew she was destined for success in politics when she saw all five children folding their own laundry and the way she ran. The house was disciplined deficient. It was you know her. She hardly ever. I have a hard time believing this. But her children's say she hardly ever had to scold them because she would just give them that cold glare of disappointment and the shame that they would feel for disappointing. Her was enough to make them behave. And so I think you say that in the way she manages the House Democratic Caucus as well that she doesn't often have to bring the hammer down and really punish people because they're just so afraid of disappointing.

Who's written the book about? Us House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi Paul says Pelosi has used her political skill in the Goshi getting talents to outmaneuver president trump in several policy. Battles balls book is called Pelosi. You know for the first several years that Nancy Pelosi was the leader of the Democratic Caucus. She was there when the Democrats were in a minority and so it was of getting the most she could with Republicans who were charging you till the number of stories One that comes to mind is when Tom delay the the congressman from Texas called her to say that they had to reduce the number of Democrats on one of the committees after this had all been agreed to and she really showed some spine. How did she respond to them? I love this answer. I love what she said to him when he told her that he was going to go back on this agreement she made with the Republican speaker. At the time she said life on this planet as you know it will not be the same if you persist in this notion. So he was very much laying down a marker that said and they tried to argue with her. They will go out and bad mouth you in the media. If you do this street said I don't care. They said we'll actually no. This is better for you. You get a larger percentage of the seats if the committee is smaller said I don't care. We had an agreement. We're sticking to the agreement and life as you note will not be the same if you persist in this notion so from the very beginning. She was a very tough leader. She was very strong leader. I think she viewed the leaders. Who'd come before her as being a little bit weak willed letting people get away with too much and so at various points as as minority leader before becoming speaker a lot of what she was doing was trying to instill a sense of party discipline and wake up the Democratic Caucus to the idea that they needed to work as a unit if they were to have any kind of leverage in negotiations with the majority and it is still a I think the number one thing that she says to and about her caucus today she says our diversity is our strength. Our unity is our power and we got to work as a team. Oh it really is interesting because when you're in the minority you have to know how far you can push right. I mean And part of that note if All's knowing the circumstances in which Republican leaders will need some democratic votes because their own caucus was arrested and some of them wouldn't go along with leadership and so it. It's one thing to be tough and show steel but to do it. Well you really have to have done the homework and know exactly where you stand where the votes are right. That's right and I think the other sort of favorite word in Nancy Pelosi's vocabulary is leverage. She always knows where those pressure points are exactly what her leverage is. Sometimes it's that as you say. The opposition is divided and that means that if the Democrats are unified they have a lot of leverage because the majority needs their votes Another thing is just knowing what the priorities are so in many of the negotiations with the Republican majority in the last few years she knew that they wanted to increase military spending so in order to get that she was to require them to increase Some domestic spending or to protect some domestic spending that the Democrats cared about so knowing those pressure points knowing what it is your opponent. Values in the negotiation enables her to to demise that leverage and then just the fact that she is so effective it becomes a sort of virtuous cycle. I guess you would say that. Because she's so successful at keeping the Democratic Caucus United. It gives her a lot of credibility in that negotiation. To say I can bring along all of my votes. Can you do that because I haven't seen you do that? But you've seen me do that a lot. A in two thousand six the Democrats Get the majority in Congress. She then become speaker the following airy and then in two thousand eight. Barack Obama wins the White House and Pelosi is speaker at a time when the Democrats control the White House and both houses of Congress and you have a president with an ambitious policy agenda and there were things they took on the affordable care act. But it's interesting to you right. That one of the toughest things for her was dealing with President Obama What was what was hard about that. I don't think she would say that. He was hard to deal with. I think she they. The two of them became very close and she church that relationship very much and I think he came to respect her as well but this was a common refrain during the Obama Administration from Democrats in the House and Senate. They just never felt that Obama was fully engaged with the Congress and knew his way around the congress. Having only been a senator for a few years never having been in the house and You know not being the sort of Schmoozer who's always having people over to the White House and Wining and dining representatives and so on many of the House Democrats were often frustrated with President Obama's negotiating abilities thought that he was giving away too much on the front end and wasn't maximizing leverage. So if you can imagine if you're someone like Nancy Pelosi who values leverage that's going to be extremely frustrating. I'm frustrated meeting in Congress word that the the Obama Administration.

Mitch McConnell very much the same way he is a guy who takes a lot of pride and not not not showing not sweating in these high stakes political showdowns and I think that what we've seen the past couple of weeks Has Been Very much in keeping with the way he's operated previously look no further than his handling of You know Bread Kavanagh's a supreme in court nomination before that the Maryland nomination. I mean this is a guy who knows when he has the support of his own Group of Republicans when he has the votes. So it's and he knows how to use that leverage effectively And that's why. I think that you know at this point when he announced earlier this week that he had the votes basically as we tell the house to to go take a hike that You know it was seen as a turning point as a as a point as saying that the house we really had had had lost its leverage. And that's based on our history of reporting on Mitch McConnell and how effective that he's been in Managing his own conference so if Nancy Pelosi does transmit the articles of impeachment maybe as soon as today or perhaps over the weekend. I don't know I does. She have what can. She claim that she accomplished well. What she's already acquaint is that it's given sort of time and space for these new Ah Revelations to come out the some of these emails that have been released under foia John Bolton's own own. Move to say that. He's willing to testify in a trial. think that she can say that you know this coming out in the context of the of the articles being withheld. Give this a little more oxygen to sort of move the process And explain I expect to see some of that. You know. Sort sort of victory. Lap type rhetoric but You know at the end of the day victory while at the end of the day McConnell is getting his way which is he's GonNa do due conduct this trial the way he wants which is start. The trial have the two sides present their cases and then decided a waiter point whether to pursue witnesses So as we head into next week aside from the fact of when and whether these articles are going to be transmitted are there any other dates on the calendar other things to pay attention to that effect political calculus. Well I you know. You're you're obviously starting to get into the presidential primary season. There's a scheduled debate next week. you know. There's some speculation that part of the the the hold here is to to keep to allow some of these democratic senators who are running for president to appear appear that debate Next week we could see a war powers vote in the Senate That that you know obviously would be a pretty Major our thing and I think that there's there's certainly Democrats on the house side. He WanNa see that precede before they get bottled up impeachment trial so those those are a couple of things so we look to you know looking towards the end of the month obviously state of the Union address has been scheduled and then You know actually the day after. The Iowa caucuses so in early February so We're getting into really hot and heavy political season here in in a presidential election. Chenier and It's going to be fast and furious after that. And if you had to bet on whether we'll hear from John Bolton who after all kind of sent a jolt through this whole line of reporting this week by saying he he would testify to the Senate do you think. Do you think we will. We will hear from him at some point. The question is will it be in his book and the media surrounding his book or will it be under oath in congressional proceeding And right now it's very much unclear. I'm sort of betting on the former President trump indicated this week that he would go to court to to protect presidential privilege in any conversations. You had with Bolton so there's no indication that that Senate even if the chat award of vote and say we want to hear from John Would you. You could just snap your fingers and it would happen. There could be a lengthy process around that Mike. Do Bonus is a congressional national and national politics reporter for the Washington Post. Mike Thank you so much I pleasure listeners.

"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.
"pelosi" Discussed on CNN's The Daily DC
"Welcome back to the daily DC. Petri Watch Zach Wolf. Marshall Cohen is still with me. And we're pleased to welcome Washington Post White House reporter Sung-min Kim she's also CNN. Political the analyst Sung men. Thank you for joining us. And I just want to say we've been fact checking ourselves a little bit during the break and it turns out the Joe Biden and Andrew. Yang did not support impeachment until after the Ukraine scandal broke. So I it's important to see I think I think those facts But it is certainly true that most of the candidates candidates supported impeachment during the Muller reports scandal An and Marshall was making the point that Congress specifically Nancy Pelosi see sort of had to be drug to impeachment By the rest of the party Ukraine sort of the the Ukraine scandal created that impetus for her. And now. We're we're in a situation where she is the face of this impeachment battle for Democrats And she's locked I guess in a standoff off You could call it that with Mitch. McConnell what is going over the rules of the Senate trial so lay it out. What exactly is going to happen over Christmas? Break the holiday they break Are Are they going to be. You know at each other's throats over this or are they gonNA take take some time off. What what are you hearing well? Nothing much of substance may occur Kerr over the two week holiday recess because first of all remember that the house actually hasn't even set over the articles of impeachment to the Senate and until the until fill those actual physical articles transmitted over to the other side of the Capitol. The Senate is kind of hold the throwing up their hands and say there's not much we can do here Nancy Pelosi. He has said she is going to hang onto them for a little longer She wants more time. Look at first of all the the structures of a Senate trial she she particularly wants to know who is brought on President. Trump's defense team. Who is going to be out there? Arguing arguing his case on his behalf on the Senate floor I think that would I think she thinks thinks that would help. Kind of guide who she picks US House impeachment managers for right now. There are a lot of questions about exactly when this would proceed. We all kind of expected that this would happen right away. Perhaps January six when when the WH when Congress returns back from the Christmas break but aside from perhaps maybe a couple more private conversations between Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell and his counterparts Senate minority leader. Chuck Schumer I don't see us going too much anywhere over the next couple of weeks. You know hypocrisy of bounds in Washington and it strikes me that Mitch McConnell used to WanNa go You know he he used to want to just get this over with In Nancy Pelosi was pushing this. They were on on on such a time line Democrats in particular. They didn't WanNa wait for the courts it's to force people from the administration to testify They wanted to get it done before Christmas. But now she's actually the one sort of holding things things back and Mitch. McConnell is trying to make things go faster sort of contradicting the frustration by Republicans that everything was moving too fast in the house so at the end of the day Pelosi has exerted some power. I think over McConnell and over trump or shown them that she has power but at the end of the day. What is this going to go to accomplish? Could she just not send the articles of impeachment over to the Senate. I mean I guess. She technically could avoid doing that but if that is the path that she chooses. It's kind of a puzzling one. Because Republicans and you just alluded to this. Republicans have pointed out that Democrats have really stressed the time urgency of this impeachment. You spent process. It is the main reason why did not decide to litigate the issues of the subpoenas particularly the subpoenas that were being defied by the trump administration administration and the courts the political reason they know impeachment it may not be the biggest political winner for some of their vulnerable Democrats in these key trump districts but their public argument is that they. I believe the president's actions. The president's behavior is such a warning such a danger as we are fully in this election season so for them to stress the the time urgency and getting him impeach as soon as possible and then kind of dragging it out. Republicans are saying wait. That doesn't make a lot of sense And the leverage that Democrats. Oh Christ at least the Progressive Wing of the of the caucus that have kind of I started to I started to circulate. This idea. They're saying while the president wants to be exonerated by the Senate. He wants to be a quick not only acquitted but fully exonerated and he's he's constantly looked at the Senate trial as a venue for him to do that. And the longer you hold out that opportunity for him to be exonerated or acquitted the mortal driving crazy and we'll see how that pans out on. The President has kind of mocked Nancy. Pelosi for this strategy but I did find Lindsey Graham's comments yesterday on Thursday interesting saying he was at a meeting at the White House he has spoken with the president. and Lindsey Graham said. The president is Pretty Mad. He wants to trial right away. So perhaps the strategy outages works. It's more could upset the president the president and I think he's already pretty upset. I saw him after after the impeachment. Vote or even during the impeachment vote. He he was red in the face and screaming at that at that rally in Michigan. Exactly so it's not initially it wasn't so much of a leverage edge over McConnell and trying to get a Senate trial in their terms that they find favorable although that's kind of the argument now which Republicans still say doesn't make sense but it's kind kind of leverage over trump because the president wants this trial and he wants it soon. It's like it's like the The Aura of leverage. You know it's the idea of leverage because You you know I think segments totally correct on this. Nobody is pulling a fast one on Mitch. McConnell right I mean this is the guy that that held up the Supreme Court seed I mean he he is got a shepherded. The confirmation of a historic number of judges. Like he's doing what he wants to do and he can you know play along with Ansi. NC Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for the moment but when push comes to shove next month in January when he wants to move forward hill fined fifty one. Republican can senators to vote. Yes on whatever he wants to move forward on And that'll be it. I mean then he'll have to talk to his own people right but there there will be or there could be a moment where he can tell Chuck Schumer. Thank you very much Nancy. Pelosi it's been great listening to you but now I'm going to talk to my own. Republicans and see what we can get fifty one votes for and we're just GONNA do it our own way so the question of leverage. It's more I don't think there's a lot of pressure to push on Mitch McConnell but for the moment over the break you know these questions will continue to swirl but I think it's the she doesn't really have this power but I just find it to be you know as somebody who's kind of likes watching all of this Washington stuff. I find the idea that she could get the impeachment but then not have to deal with the acquittal to be just kind kind of this masterstroke that nobody was. You know. Expect a even if it doesn't end up that way it's it's it's fascinating. It's weird a little weird that like right because just think about there is a legal Dynamic here right and so if you think What did they say during the hearings? They said that I I think it was eric swallow or Ted Lieu. WHO said that? The president is on a crime spree and needs to be held accountable. So if this guy is on a crime spree if you take the Democrats they're worried. That trump is on a crime spree. So you charge the guy and then you say well trial maybe who knows whatever but the jury various stacked it we. We have multiple people saying they're they're gonNA they're gonNA of you know they're not impartial so it's not it was never going to be a real trial well It it was always this political event So like Andrew Yang said. They knew that at the very start Sung meant what. What's your what's your final thought here? as as we the head out the door to to to to holiday break You know what do you think At the end of the day will be the lesson of impeachment in Twenty Twenty Democrats Built for Democrats. I think that will largely be determined the ballot box in November twenty twenty but I think and Democrats have been trying to make this case too and you see how Speaker Nancy Pelosi has tried to Has has had this balancing act because while Impeachment was is something that was clearly desired by a big part of the party's base early on Most of the party leadership particularly those who are very attuned. A to the electoral capabilities and electoral needs of the Democratic Party. They know that impeachment is not the most important issue for Democrats. That's why you've heard presidential renshaw. Candidates like Andrew Yang Bernie Sanders. I believe have been the two most vocal when they talk about impeachment. They talk about it but they always pivot to other issues. They talk about the economy. They talk about healthcare and how that really matters. And that's why you've seen Pelosi kind of Um Sandwich. The impeachment vote if you will with votes on for example this massive trade trade deal that the House voted on before leaving leaving for the holiday break. they also voted on legislation to lower prescription drug prices. So they WANNA give this message to to particularly those vulnerable house. Democrats and saying look. We can hold the president accountable. We can do our constitutional duties but we didn't come to Congress or most of US didn't come to Congress. I do that. We vote. We came to Congress to work on these policy issues that matter for the people and how much of that message breaks through in the next You Know Ah Eleven twelve months until November will be a really major test for. It's so interesting because it's the historically bad week for him that stains his presidency but at the same time he can run on those things too he can run on. US and he will And that was a huge. I think political win for him. That was sort of underneath the the fog of of Impeachment Marshall Sung men. Thank you for joining me on the daily. DC Impeachment Watch and thanks to our listeners.

Everyone in the state even what it would mean for Detroit or Louisville across the border that is the size of the line of flames that has been roaring through rural Australia. Recently defy has banned more than seven hundred thirty thousand acres north west of Sydney and cannot be put out. We've told you about these bush fires as property and trees and Kuala populations or just destroyed. Will yesterday the country saw its first firefighters killed as well and even after weeks these things are just getting bigger. Most this happening in the state of New South Wales WanNa take you there right now now. Angelique Lewis reporter with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in New South Wales actually a couple of hours inland from Sydney. Right now. Angela giving using these fires up close. That's right what are they like the size of these FIS icon state enough the size of them so since about September this she we've been fighting bushfires and if you were to lay the you know the square miles over the top of New York it would stretch actually as FAW's Philidelphia. Wow It's incredibly challenging. Conditions Australia is in the middle of a countrywide heat wave. It's almost apocalyptic scenes in Australia with Sydney shrouded in smoke. Did bats dropping from the sky temperatures rocketing to record levels and more than one hundred wildfires burning in New South Wales. I've been to the five grand and it's incredibly smokey And you don't have to be close to the grounds to get the the sense the smoke now on the back of that adding to some concerns about these fire conditions have been sort of those strong winds those hazardous air quality alerts all all through Sydney pollution levels. The same as New Delhi so three point one million full is how much these bushfires have burnt so far in my I state within a is people start dying from these angelique is this officially becomes deadly.

"And if we're talking about President Trump and democratic strategies. He's let's talk about the democratic debate. It happened in Los Angeles despite a labor dispute early this week and I will give you one guess as to what the first questions were about Senator Sanders why I think more people are not in support of impeachment. And what else can you do. What I would say is that we have a president? It is a pathological lineup. ABC's Linsey Davis was there for that debate hosted by PBS and. She joins us now from the spin room where the candidates went to say. Hi So Lindsey. There was was a lot more than just impeachment on the table. Here in front of these candidates exactly right bread out of the gate. Impeachment was front and Center not much dissension there. It means loyalty to wire country music. Constitution Sesame Watergate. This is Global Watergate. Well this is not a great area of debate Yang did have a different take. But we have to do is we have to stop being obsessed over impeachment which unfortunately strikes many Americans like a ball game or you know what the score is going to be and start actually digging beginning in in solving the problems that God donald trump elected in the first place. But where you really had the clash. Was this pylon. Essentially on Mayor Buddha judge. Yeah I was GONNA say people were talking about you. Know who's going to have the big night people are talking about Yang and they're on the outside looking in. I think Pete Buddha judge was the one who really needed to have a big night just considering everyone was going to be coming for him and they certainly did you mayor Buddha. Jed seemed like he was prepared for this battle. Billionaires in wine cades should not pick the next president of the United States response while the bulk of the first half of the debate was pretty much politics politics as usual then. The conversation took a sharp turn when it came to campaign financing know supposing that you went home feeling the holiday spirit. I know. This isn't likely but stay with me and decided to go on for America dotcom and give the maximum allowable by law two thousand eight hundred dollars would that pollute my campaign because it came from a wealthy person. No I would be glad to have that support. We need the support from everybody who is committed to helping us to feed on which continent gloves CBS off clash between Senator Elizabeth. Warren and mayor. Buddha judge can't Senator Warren of people who can put down five thousand dollars for a check. Check drown out the voices of everyone else in my campaign and the White House and then you would be kind of experienced a sharp elbows as well from senator. Amy Klobuchar said well you can dismiss committee hearings. I think this experience works and I have not denigrated your experiences. A local local official. I have been one you know. I just think you should respect our experience when you look at how you evaluate. Komo began questioning his inability to win and get things done respond to that. I know that if you just go by vote totals maybe what goes on in my city seems fall. You WanNa talk about the capacity to win try putting together a coalition to bring you back to office with eighty percent of the vote as a gay dude in Mike. Pence's Indiana taste. Would if you if you had one in Indiana that would be one one thing you tried and you lost twenty point. Let's talk about who had the best night the end of the day. Lindsay I think that Senator Club Rashard Andrew Gang. Both benefited benefited from having the smallest debate. Stage yet with only seven candidates they both got considerably more talking. Time is if you get too many men alone and leave us alone for wildly talented become morons Yang had things to say about being the only minority on the stage which I think is another headline just months ago you had a one of the most diverse burst fields Ever in As far as Democrats running for president and then of the seven candidates up there you only had Andrew Yang as the the only minority. It's both an honor and disappointment to be the lone candidate of color on the stage tonight. I missed com Miss Corey though. I think he'll be back actually.

"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..

"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.

"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.

"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..
"pelosi" Discussed on WSJ Opinion: Potomac Watch
"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..
"pelosi" Discussed on CNN's The Daily DC
"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.

"Everyone this is david chollian the cnn political director and this is the daily dc thanks so much for listening today on the podcast nancy pelosi under fire from her own party this is an inevitable story line it happens every so often in washington ever since nancy pelosi has been leader of her party and quite frankly would probably happen for any leader of the minority party who would face a all these kinds of questions from factions inside the party about whether or not there the right person to lead them to the promised land uh and and get a majority back a so this is not unfamiliar territory to nancy pelosi end the criticism for her to step down not be leader any more say publicly that she would not be she would not run for speaker if indeed the democrats won the majority in twenty eighteen at all that criticism right now on the democratic side is coming from the usual suspects and so there's not a groundswell i don't want to suggest i hear them saying nancy pelosi's hold on her leadership position of the democratic caucus in the house is somehow imperil i don't think it is but it is significant what's going on because what has happened in the immediate aftermath of the pretty demoralizing loss for democrats in the georgia's sixth congressional district that we talked about yesterday after they put everything on the line in that race even in a republican district the the immediate conversation inside democratic circles is intensifying over two things message and leadership would what is the right message to be taken the american people should they only be talking about health care should they be talking about trump more and the anti trump of fervor that exists in the base of the democratic party and make sure to keep that alive there there's there's a big question about that and then there is a big question about the party leadership is nancy pelosi the right person.
