Harris Police respond. Well, you listen to talk about now running for President and you change your position on the Hyde Amendment Vice President where you made a decision for years to withhold resources to poor women to have access to reproductive health care and including women who were the victims of rape and incest. Do you now say that you have evolved and regret that because you've only since you've been running for president this time said that you had you in some way would take that back where you didn't agree with the decision that you made over many many years and this directly impacted. So many women in our country and I personally prosecuted rape cases and child. Molestation. Cases. and. The experience at those women have those children have and that they would then be denied the resource vice president I think is unacceptable. Fact is that. Senator knows that's not my position everybody on the stage has been in the Congress and the Senate or House voted for the amendments I'm point the Hyde Amendment passed was available because there was other access for those kinds of services provided privately. But once I wrote the legislation making sure that every single woman would, in fact, be have an opportunity to have healthcare paid for by the federal government everyone that that could no longer stand I support a woman's right to choose I support. It's a constitutional right I've supported I will continue to support it and I will in fact, move as president to see to the Congress legislates that that is the law well.

Biden VP Search Narrows to Kamala Harris: Does She Want the Job?
"Democratic presidential nominee of Vice President Joe Biden could reportedly announced his pick for a running mate as soon as this week. California Senator Kamala Harris. API appears to be one of the leading candidates, but some are questioning if she AH wants to take the job or not for more key CBS News anchor Dan Mitchinson spoke with Carla Marinucci. Senior writer for Politico California playbook. Carla. What do you think? First of all, Do you think this could be Harris there? Even in the last days, Vegas betting circled at this point. Dan is being number one on Joe Biden's list. Who knows how that's gonna play out? But the fact is that Kamala Harris has been mentioned before. For other Possibilities in the administration, including attorney general, including possibly a nominee for the Supreme Court. Obama and during the Obama administration, she was reportedly asked if she wanted to be attorney general. She turned that down on the issue of the Supreme Court. She said She wanted to run for Senate at the time. But times have changed, And perhaps she might have changed her mind. She's getting advice from some Democrats that she might consider turning down the VP job because the attorney general job at this point could be more consequential. Willie Brown, who former San Francisco mayor said in his column on Sunday that he thought, uh, right right now, there's nobody left important than the vice president. I mean, as he said, Ask Mike Pence so that nobody thinks the vice president is a really influential job. But the attorney general, ah could have a long to do list ahead and that could include prosecuting Trump in the trump family law enforcement reform, Other issues related tio inspector generals and other things that the Trump administration has done and Democrats I think may be cheering that on, so we'll see how it plays out. But certainly Kamala Harris has a lot of different possibilities. But right now it looks like she may be at the top of the list or very close to it when it comes to Joe Biden, vice presidential nominee, But let me ask you this. I mean, Biden is gonna have a lot of California locked in the rest of the country, not necessarily a big fan of our state. Do you think a VP from here would hurt or help him then? That's been a debate Janet, But the fact is Kamala Harris has huge name recognition in the rest of the country. The You don't want the advice presidential nominee to do any harm. But in commonly Harrison's case, she could help in helping deliver some of those states where you need to rev up the Democratic base of progressive base. She had those followers right. She had a presidential campaign that brought her to all of those swing states. And so many voters know her out there more than some of the other women on the list. That doesn't mean, however, that people like Karen Bass, perhaps the House member from Los Angeles, Uh, Susan Rice, former ambassador and Tammy Duckworth's, uh, the senator from Illinois who is highly thought of this well couldn't be part of the mix as well. But how tough would this be for not only Biden but for Harris if she decides to run in four years if Biden's only in there for one or even in eight to move into the White House when we have a pandemic going on, and an economic recession? Yeah, you've actually hit on it and that some of the reasons why we've heard some doubts about Kamala Harris being mentioned the fact that she's ambitious. She clearly wants to run for president in some point And the go by in vice presidential nominee is in effect giving a leg up to whoever wants to do that It is effective primary in a way for the for the next presidential contest. Many Democrats would believe that that May hurt Joe Biden in some respects because they may want not wantto help. Comma. Harris is much when it comes to pushing legislation in Washington because they won't want to advance her chances. There's going to be a lot of Democrats who want to run for president, Uh, in 2024. So at this point, Yeah, Connell, Harris and her future plans and her future ambitions have all been part of the mix. It's why some Democrats say she may be the best choice for Joe Biden. Alright, Gotta run real quick. Will she be offered the the VP, And if she is, will she take it? He'll take it if she's offered, Will she be offered? That's the $1,000,000 question right now. That's Carla Marinucci, senior writer for political Oh California playbook.

Are you going to vote?
"When I asked you. If you plan on voting, it sounds like I'm joking. But I swear I'm not, and the reason I ask is when I actually look at the numbers of people who aren't voting every year year in year out. OVER HALF OF AMERICA HALF OF VOTING AGE Americans. Is, not, they're not voting period. Half of all of our eligible voters. Aren't voting in presidential elections. In fact, the largest single bloc of voters. Non Voters. And I have to assume. That many of you who are listening right now. Maybe. Plan on voting. Maybe think that you're going to vote. But actually half of you aren't going to vote, and maybe it's that the listeners a breakdown, you all just vote and vote and vote, and maybe we're not at fifty percent. But even when you look at demographics and all of that half of all eligible voters just aren't voting. And I for my entire life have stayed away from the generic request of go vote. because. Saying to people go vote. Does. Not necessarily make change as you know, maybe, no. On April twenty first to have a brand new book out called make change and I- rail on this very point of saying this and telling people go vote is not enough. It's not enough to tell people go vote. We have to instruct people on who to vote for. Not just even on what party. But on. What position on? What person? Because saying, go vote? Might, get people in there maybe to vote for particular presidential candidate. But how is that going to help them to know who to vote for on the school board or city council or even in their local congressional race in their state legislative races? We need to become listen to me. We need to become. Highly. Informed. Super informed voters. And to be very real about it, I, mean, we are now just days away from the Iowa caucuses, but the truth is, Minnesota. Is already in early voting. Do you hear me? States that have early voting have already started. California is just a few days away now from early voting, and so we are days away. From being able to vote all over the country in in Minnesota, and other states, this week and next week are also going to begin early voting. We are about to choose the next Democratic candidate for president of United States. What are you waiting for? Who are you waiting for like? First off, there's going to be no superhero to swoop down and save us. I know you know that and I'm not trying to be facetious, but you see the candidates. Okay. You see them. You see the candidates for president make choice do not simply allow. Everybody else don't allow the media to choose for. You do not allow other voters to choose for you. Because I assure you, they may not have your best interest in mind. Go ahead, find out who is running for Congress in your community who was running for a local legislative races on the state level whatever states are in. Even. If you're outside of the United, states, who are you voting for locally regionally nationally, what are you planning on doing listen? The responsibility, this is what I want to pass over to you. The responsibility. Of, knowing who to vote for? Falls on you. It does not fall on me. It does not fall on. Your parents, your siblings, your pastor, your local activists, or organizer. The responsibility that when you live. In a democracy where you get to vote for your mayor for your district attorney for your city council person for other roles that are so pivotal when you have ballot initiatives. For. For schools for penny taxes, where sometimes they'll raise sales tax by penny, but that penny will be multiplied sometimes hundreds of millions of times with every single purchasing could completely change the roads or public works or school systems that it will go to do. You even know what ballot initiatives are going to be on the ballot in your city in your state in your county. I need you to make the commitment listen to. In some ways, this entire episode is an action steps episode I need you to make the commitment. This time. When you walk into your polling location, do you know your polling location? Are you properly registered. Let's talk about those two things for many before I. Even Pass on this responsibility to you. All you need to do right now it, there are two things are right you to be able. To Google. Am I registered to vote. And put your state. Am I registered to vote New York. M I registered to vote Georgia Minnesota California Alabama Texas. Make sure that you're registered to vote. Now put 'em I. registered to vote and they should not be this complicated M I registered to vote Democratic primary. Now, you may be listening to me, we'll shot I'm not really a Democrat I'm I'm an independent I hear that. Because all of us are often extremely frustrated with America's two party system, and there's plenty to be frustrated about the democratic, party, and and certainly about the Republican Party. But did you know that in many states including California and others some of the largest states in the country that if you are not a registered Democrat, you are not able to vote in the Democratic primary. So here again is what I need you to do. Google your name right now because many of us come upon deadlines for us to even be able to to vote in the Democratic primary, you'll miss that you won't even get to choose who the Democratic candidate for president or any position is if you don't vote in the Democratic primary, so Google this. Am I registered to vote in the Democratic primary? And then your state.

"Legislation earlier this summer that would require all incoming freshman at Cal State universities to taken ethnic studies class listener. Michael Variety asked our Bay curious team this question I've heard that there was actually a revolution in the Bay Area for an ethnic studies field. Is this true? And how did it happen? The short answer. Yes, it's true. Reporter assault A sonnet. Poor tells us how it went down during the longest student strike in US history. It was November of 1968. The US was 13 years into the Vietnam War. American soldiers hiking their way through the sweaty jungles of South Vietnam, searching for enemy Martin Luther King had been assassinated earlier that year, and the Black Panther Party demanded systemic change for black communities plagued by poverty and police brutality. That's what black students at San Francisco State wanted to bury. Proves to be a member ofthe last. This is Nesbitt Crutchfield. He started studying at San Francisco State in 1967 and soon joined the black student union. It was the very 1st 1 in the country. It was very clear to me that Black soon Union representative. Very progressive. Among black spoons at state among black students in the very but just a small percentage of black students went to SF State admission rates for minority students had dwindled down to just 4%. Even those 70% of students in the SF Unified School District for from minority backgrounds is a black person you expected for all intensive purposes. To be one of the very few black people in whatever classroom laboratory auditorium. The U. N was overwhelmingly white. Amidst that whiteness black students were hungry to study their own history. The black student union had been pushing the university to create a black studies department for nearly three years. But administrators resisted the idea. was an era of young people asking questions and want to transform their communities. Jason Ferreira is a professor in the Department of Race and Resistance at San Francisco State College of ethnic studies. And that impulse that That hunger to transform one's communities is actually what forms the basis of ethnic studies. It's around this time that Penny no. Okatsu was grappling with her own questions about race and identity. We want Asian Americans, then we were Orientals. An Oriental is a term that was imposed on us by the largest society, so starting to use the term Asian American was a way of taking back er. Our own destiny. Henny became a member of a student organization called the Asian American Political Alliance. It was just one of many ethnic student organizations popping up on campus and an early fall of 1968. These organizations banded together in formed a coalition, the Third World Liberation Front. And at that particular time, third world referred to the Non Aligned Countries are cultures in Asia, Africa and Latin America. It was synonymous with how we might use people of color today. English professor and Black Panther. George Murray was one of San Francisco state's most influential anti Vietnam organizers. Students loved Murray, but his outspoken politics didn't sit well with us of state administrators. The war in Vietnam is racist. That is the law that crackers like Johnson are using black soldiers and poor white soldiers of Mexican soldiers as dupes and fools to fight against people of color. In Vietnam. The board of trustees fired Murray over Comment like this one on November 1st 1968 5 days later, the black student union and the Third World Liberation Front joined together and went on strength in aspic, Crutchfield says Despite coming from different backgrounds, the strikers had a clear goal. I wanted to find out and be educated about ourselves, and we could not get that the nobody getting educated Initially, strikers did things like cherry bombs in toilets and check out tons of books at once in order to overwhelm the school's library system, But almost immediately, administrators invited police on campus. Jason Ferreira says they swarmed the school armed with five foot batons. Students responded by throwing rocks and cursing out the police. Police came down heavy hard, and they just began cracking skulls Strikers carried on anyway. Penny No. Okatsu was protesting on January 23rd 1969. In what many call the mass bust. Two lines of police came up and basically surrounded the over 500 people who were there for the rally and tracked all of the individuals who are part with that net police charged at students, Penny says it was one of the bloodiest and most frightening days of the entire strike. That was a military movement, literally a practice orchestrated military movement. Hundreds were arrested. Virtually all of the individuals arrested head Tio spend some jail time. There are real consequences to having participated in that event. It's up two more months. But eventually in March, administrators and strikers negotiated a deal after five months of protesting the school agreed to many striker demands. They promised to accept virtually all non white applicants for fall of 1969 and they agreed to establish a college of ethnic studies, the first in the country. Class is about communities of color. Ethnic studies is a way of embracing all of the cultures that make up not just this country, but with the world. And if we don't understand each other, how we're going to get along.

"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and Neil Patel, and today we are going to talk about something really interesting. That's happening right now while we're GonNa talk about the pure one import transaction and what we can learn from it but we. A little context here as to when recording this. This is July twenty, second twenty twenty where still in the midst of Covid, and so what's going on as a lot of these companies retailers are going bankrupt. They were already shaky, and this was basically nail in the coffin for them. So they've had to basically liquidate. Neil. I'm sure you've looked into this deal a little bit. What do you know about it? Can you kind of pay some white as to WHO's kind of spearheading this as well? Sure. So there's a guy named Alex, ooh Zeus Anti Lopez. Many guys know about the guy has a. Car. Garage union, it's at. Times really smart. So ty ended up techno was but a lot of people look at Thai Guy who's pushing Lamborghini, and there's not much more to. What ty analysis decided to do was leverage on leverage. Our audience gets a ton of investors in go out there in go leverage their audience and going by these struggling e-commerce. First one they did was dressed farm about her pennies on the dollar. Now, the buying pure one, and then from there, they turn around the company's make him grow at the fat. And you got a really solid business in part, audience built brand lowliest do the bat and off. Yeah I mean, if you think about it, it's it was initially, they agreed on a twenty one, million dollar deal in the pure one came back and said, we want thirty million. So I think it's a thirty million dollar deal now, but to Neal's point, it's pennies on the dollar, the work de Sweat equity that's been put in over the years and years. They don't necessarily need all the retail shops anywhere. You take the brand, make everything. Go Onto ECOMMERCE. You'RE GONNA go. So, you're going to print money what turns action. It's super simple. It's effective and I wish more people thought about things that way a lot of people want to build businesses from scratch. The hardest part is building easier. Part is growing muscle were marketers cutting back in grown company has already a billion dollars revenue. They're not fall role while. Is it okay by for pennies on the dollar, you cut the fat and made two billion anymore, but they slew one, hundred, million. So that really amazing business, right? I was listening to that yesterday. So Nike originally, they were slated for their online revenue to be about thirty percent for twenty, twenty three. I at the target now is fifty percent. So the already shot past that. So a lot of stuff is accelerated. Yes. We know that they're not getting a lot of offline transactions, but would this basically means if you look at shop advice stock a lot of stuff ECOMMERCE which is accelerating. Yet, and before this year roughly percent of online transact commerce transaction rebound online that. And sure after cheers Emmy going down a little bit, but it's still gonNA. Be Way higher than where started. Yeah I think at least one of the lessons from me here is you have to look at the Times what are people used to right now, and is it just a business model? tweak where you remove the retail component? The you know the in store component and you just switch it to online and boom. You're you're good to go. 'cause people are tied to the original kind of appear one management team might be tied to hey, we should keep the stores people stuck with doing things the old way by once you remove the emotion from it wants you just be used a objective and you think about it from a business perspective everything changes anything else.

Election 2020: Biden's VP Pick
"There's plenty of general reporting out there about each of the possible women who Joe Biden might pick to be his vice president. We're here now to understand the Jewish angle for each of these impressive women to learn what American Jews should know about each of these candidates that might make them more supportive or concerned. So we're going to go one by one and get the Jewish angle from our guest Jacob Corn Blue, the national politics reporter for Jewish insider. Jacob. Thank you for joining us to be back. Let's start with Comma Harris a former candidate for the Democratic nomination a popular senator from California the State with the second largest Jewish population in the country. What's the Jewish angle on Senator Harris? First of all, she married to a Zionist of that Iraqi gets her a Jewish scientist. Yes. So that gives an upper hand in this Jewish of IPE stakes I think that Kamala Harris gives a lot. She adds up to the ticket number one just because she was a popular candidate and people. So her at the start as a rising star and somebody who can really take this to the very end unfortunately it for ourselves she didn't win the primaries should take on. Joe. Biden pretty early which gave. That rise in the polls in the only of twenty twenty. I will say that Biden. Biden comes to see who is preferred choice for Veep Kamala Harris has a big name recognition. Is Obviously arised star and her background, a label as being a black woman from California. But was so high tides in the Senate and in the Jewish community. So the pros are out. The cons are that I'm not sure Biden Israeli looking for someone on the ticket would potentially overshadow him not because Harris Donald understand that if she's on the ticket, she's number two and she's there to serve the presidential nominee and possibly the president. But Because Camera Harris ran on the same slop because she is a bishop you know she can overshadow him in media appearances and potentially as vice president of being a little more independent and vocal than let's say, Dick Cheney and pence on camera beyond the you know the happy coincidence of the Jewish husband is there anything in particular that Jews should know about Senator Harris is policy stances? What has she? Done on issues Anti Semitism, what has she done on supporting Israel, other issues of concern to the Jewish community I guess close ties with APEC obviously. She's spoken at several APEC conferences but she also appealed to the mainstream of the Democratic Party She's not seen as a controversial figure amongst progressives say as someone who is too pro Israel for them she will reflect the same policies that Biden Obama and. Anybody, else running a Democratic Party other than on the an Warren's she would you know align herself with the second policy views? So I don't think she's outstanding. She's not too long in the Senate to look back at a record by think, she has a strong provisions record and she is aligned itself with the mainstream of the Democratic Party next, let's talk about political MIA fights, Susan, rice, Susan Rice served. As US ambassador to the UN in President Obama's first term and his national security adviser in his second going even further back in time actually I think I think she was the youngest ever assistant secretary of State She was you know thirty three or something like that when President Clinton in Nineteen Ninety eight made her the system secretary of State for Africa what did you need to know about Susan? Rice. Well Susan Rice first of all is A. Mixed emotions about Susan, Rice obviously, she has good ties with prominence numbers of the Jewish community and she has a record serving as national security adviser and embassador to the UN on their Obama Democrats SAPORTA. Mostly Obama's policy when it comes to how other than the last UN Security Council. Two, three, three, four, a resolution, and just mind our listeners about two three four why that was controversial. The only time when Obama. ABSTAINED ON APRIL then. All on settlements that you know really couldn't dent on Obama's record when it comes to a majority of American Jews talking about Republican Jews, all those. In Israel who soul Obama as being the more salt when it comes to the Palestinian issue. But Susan Rice obviously had a this overlap from being a national security adviser and the to the UN. Obviously, she was a controversial figure on this front. She was criticized by Dennis. Ross by the full hug combative style. When came to the Palestinian issue on the other hand, she has very strong ties with somebody like a Fox who is very vocal in his pro Israel stats

Coins and Cash: Shortages, Hoardings, and Threats
"Walking money for the rest of us. This is a personal finance show on money how it works how to invest it, and how to live without worrying about it. I'm your host David Stein today's episode three, Zero Eight. It's titled Cash Coins. shortages. Forty and threats. Weeks ago, my daughter and I were at a bakery buying a couple of loaves of bread. We didn't have the exact change and they didn't have the coins to make chain. So they rounded down, we got a small discount. This week I was going through the McDonald's drive through, and there was a sign that said due to treasury shortage of coins, use credit or debit cards. Round up to the nearest dollar, donate the different to Ronald McDonald house charities or use exact change on cash transactions. There is a coin shortage in the US right now. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell told Congress last month. What happened is that with the partial closure of the economy, the flow of coins through the economy, it has gotten all. It's kind of stopped. We've been aware of it. We're working with the meant to increase supply while working with the reserve banks to get this apply to where it needs to be. The Agency of the US Treasury responsible for minting coins is the US. Meant it was established in seventeen ninety two by Congress when it passed the coinage Jack and it chose Philadelphia as the site of the I meant. Now, the US mint operates production facilities in Philadelphia, San, Francisco Denver, and West Point. Every two years, Congress requires US Treasury to give a report on the US mint its budget and its cost to produce its coins. In twenty twenty, the US meant projected that it would produce fourteen billion circulating coins. Including eight and a half billion pennies. One point, three, billion Nichols two point, four, billion times. One Point, eight, billion quarters. Now. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the US mint cut back production of circulating coins in March and April. Year to date through July, they had produced eight point, two, billion coins. They said, they were back up to full capacity by mid. June anticipate producing one point six, five, billion coins per month. That would equate eighteen point, one, billion coins. But here's the thing about circulating coins in the US and other countries. The meant only contributes a relatively small percentage of the new circulating coins each year twenty, nineteen, it was seventeen percent. New. Coins. Going into the supply chain? The remainder came from third party coin processors are recyclers as individuals by things they get back and there are machines where you can put your spare change and it will sort it and this recirculating process. Make sure there is a sufficient supply of coins that has broken down. A couple of weeks ago, meant issued a bulletin, which said, we ask that the American. Public start spending their coins, depositing them or exchanging them for currency at financial institutions or taking them to a coin reduction kiosk. The coin supply problem can be solved with each of us doing our part. This isn't the first time that there has been a coin shortage. There was one in the early nineteen sixties in the US.
"pence" Discussed on Article II: Inside Impeachment
"From NBC News. This is article two inside impeachment. I'm Steve Kornacki. Today is Friday November eighth. And here's what's happening. We have made America great again and to keep America Drake. We're going to reelect president. Donald Trump for four more years vice president. Mike Pence was in New Hampshire on Thursday to add president trump to the state's primary ballot. So there's smalltown boy from seven Indiana's Indiana so very humbling day for me. But he couldn't escape the news from five hundred miles away a welcome. Thank you Starting back to Washington. was there any role that you had discussions with. Silence hence was immediately asked about his role in the Ukraine scandal. Or do you feel at the president's calls perfect as as he has said many. Sometimes the American people have the transcript of the president's call and they can see there was no quid pro quo. President did nothing wrong. Meanwhile today defiance defiance on Capitol Hill Jennifer Williams is testifying against White House orders. Jennifer Williams is the special adviser for Europe and Russia for pence she. She was on that July twenty fifth phone call between trump and Ukrainian President Dolinsky. This is the first time impeachment. Investigators are hearing from someone in Mike. Pence's office she might be able. They provide information about what pence knew about the hold up of military aid vice president. Mike Pence has been a side character throughout the impeachment inquiry so today on article two. We're you're asking was vice president pence in unwitting bystander to the Ukraine scandal were will he become a key. Figure as the inquiry moves ahead. VAUGHN hilliard is a political reporter for. NBC Vaughn thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me. So we WANNA get into how pence fits into or doesn't fit into into the impeachment inquiry. All of the questions there. I think to start though just wanted to take a step back and talk about his role in the trump administration his relationship and ship with the president sort of the the state of that in our understanding of that was I remember this partnership in Twenty Sixteen when When they teamed up just before the Republican convention it seemed like a bit of an odd pairing A couple years later a couple years into the trump administration what do we know about Mike. Pence's relationship with Donald Trump. Right now he was so I heard those twelve years in Congress from two thousand to two thousand twelve. He then went on to become the governor of Indiana. You know he's the old classic Nick Christian Conservative from Columbus Indiana Place. A forty thousand people a true hoosier and so when he suddenly was elevated to be Donald Trump's running mate he was shot onto the scene. I was actually. It was the night that he was. Selected is on trump's running mate in its first interview. It was with Sean Hannity and I've looked back at this moment a lot over the last three years. He Sean Hannity asked him said how will you disagree with President Trump. And what does that look like. What are you doing you disagree well? Well I've been in positions before like that. I served in the leadership of the Congress. A shut the door you tell the boss exactly what you think but when the door opens the job of the vice president is stand right next to the president and implement the policy that he's decided and over the course of the three years you've seen pretty much do just that do we have a sense. How how trump trump regards him? You know there's been talk over the time Ray would would. He looked to replace Mike Pence. But every step of the way pence has been in lockstep walking that very tight tight-wire and essentially always defending the president when you're looking at trump. He is not spoken about word about pence. And if you look across administration there's not many. They have made it this far and pence new getting into this that he was going to have to do that in order to stick around and it looks like he's in it and He's prepared to do whatever it takes to stay a part heard of it. What is pence is relationship with Republican leaders on Capitol Hill? Like has he been a conduit for them to the administration Has the nature of that changed now that he's a loyal partner of trump to. What's what's his reputation there? This is what it was during the two thousand sixteen campaign when there are a lot of hesitant Republican officials. It was Mike Pence. The one that was going and massaging those relationships he was the one that was carrying on the fundraisers. He did it. During the midterms he was the one that largely went out from Congressional District District Congressional district fundraising and campaigning on behalf of Conservative lawmakers. He has been the one that is continued to be sort of that. That quiet quiet voice to help that relationship between the White House and still a Republican Party. That is still obviously grappling with how it's GONNA handle itself into the future. So let's talk about pence in Ukraine pence in this Ukraine investigation He enters the picture on this as I understand it. Maybe you can you can flesh this out back in in May is that right amazed. Alinsky is supposed to be sworn in pence is supposed to play a role. Exactly we should note. The vice president has not answered a slew of these questions directly. And we're still trying to figure out but it was. It was in May was the inauguration of Zalewski in the initial plan was to have vice president pence. Go to that inauguration ultimately what we do know is that he never went there. The question is did the president or anybody around the president directly requests. VP or to his office that he not attend inauguration inauguration. I think this is the larger Mike Pence Story. To what extent is it willful ignorance or complicity. And when I say willful ignorance de eh the vice president ever ask the administration. Why am I not going to this? Inauguration now we don't have that answer yet and Or did the vice president's office just sake the administration's word and not attend rick. Perry the energy secretary ultimately went in his place. There's testimony this week from pence aid from Jennifer Jennifer Williams. She was on the July twenty fifth. Call Trump insulin ski that famous July. Twenty fifth call Pence himself wasn't do we. We know if she told him about that call. He found out anything about She comes from the Foreign Service background. She is somebody who is not a political figure in. She was one of those two individuals that was on that Dylan call from the vice president's office and that call is important in what Jennifer Williams knows because ultimately it was on September timber. I that Vice President Pence went and had his own meeting with Celeski in so the question is did vice. President pence ever read the transcript that July twenty fifth phone call between Trump Dolinsky in which president trump urged investigations into the DNC supposed DNC server. In the Biden's they did Williams ever brief the vice president of the United States about President Trump's words. That is what we're looking to understand as to what Jennifer Williams knows right. So that's that seems like a key question We've all read the transcript or the summary of the transcripts that the that is out there. But you're you're talking about this period read between the phone call and the start of September in the transcript at that point is not publicly available. Nobody knew about it. The question of whether pence had read it in period. I asked him about that. What's what's his response? been like Mr Vice President. Did you read trump's twenty fifth meeting Mr Vice-president. It'd be great to talk with you Mr vice-president I asked him this exact question here. Because this was originally president trump was going to go be the one to have that meeting over. It was in Poland On September first ultimately Mike Pence went into his place. One would think that before going in to a meeting with The Ukrainian president that there'd be holy aware of what President Trump's interactions and directives would have been and that's part of that conversation at sued. Frankly be a little bit of a surprise if nobody ever briefed vice president about trump's desire to have the Biden's be investigated or the supposed Deon Server be investigated again. That goes to the question. Is this willful ignorance or is this complicity by the vice president. I asked him and it was Just one month ago on October ninth in Iowa I asked the vice president over the course of about seventy five seconds repeatedly the same question Jin was he ever aware of interest within the administration to have Ukraine investigate. The by nights never discussed issue of of The issue of the Biden's with President. And what I what I can tell you is that all of our discussions is internal.
"pence" Discussed on The Young Turks
"I think you'll love a lot of the podcasts on the network old school. It's one of my favorites. It's one of the favorites for a lot of the listeners. Please check that out. Subscribe share it makes a big difference and even five star rating. Thank you all right well. The Turks Hugh Grant and conspiring with you guys big giant day ahead for you guys. Donald Trump commits another crime on national television just God. I'm going to be proven right on everything. Thank this guy look. I told you to too stupid to cover it up he doesn't get it. He doesn't get it and finally people are starting to wake up going ham. Maybe the problem I mrs mental deficiency told you are told you and he's too corrupt to stop anyway so a million stories really that get a Lotta. This Fox News just broke his story. That's very damaging to the president as Smith Napolitano will not stop calling trump's actions illegal on Fox News so so there's a lot of drums okay Elizabeth Warren with an excellent new proposal. That's a little bit later in the program again so this is a new in America where presidential candidates are going to the left of me so some of the stuff in there is by the way it's a good proposal. I'm going to put that out there. She'll get it out there but there is something about this proposal. That makes me realize that she's paying very close attention into critics. Well look. I don't know but it's a good thing for somebody to be responsive. I'm giving credit for that. No we are. We are giving her credit. We'll give it more credit later but watch it for yourself. When we give you the tells anyways we start with massive drama between the President and the vice president. Let's do it. There's a split between the president's aides and the vice president's aides and that is always a sign of impending disaster. That's Joe Lockhart who worked in Bill Clinton's administration and he has noticed something that has actually become quite obvious. There is a growing rift between Donald Trump and his own vice president Mike Pence as a result of this impeachment inquiry now. How much did Vice President Mike Pence know I know about the phone call with Donald Trump. You Have Donald Trump's aides saying oh pence knew everything and then at the same time you have pence's aid saying well Maybe you didn't know anything at all. We don't know he seems like he's been left in the dark about all of this so before I give you the details on that and it's an excellent detailed report in The Washington Post. I I want to give you a little more of what Joe Lockhart had to say. Take a look. It's a bit of a circular firing squad right now at the White House says people try to positioned their principles and settle some scores in the you know in the process look. I'm struck by lightning suggesting that some grand strategy here but if you look at the big picture there are those who suggest that the White House the President's team is bringing up the word Mike Pence or the words words I suppose Mike Pence because what they're doing is sending the message. Everyone's involved here if you come after me. It's everyone who's going down so take this seriously. I think again I think the pence people tried to put out a line that you know insulated him and the the trump White House send in a message saying if I'm going down. You're coming down with me. There's there's only one story coming out of this. White House and it's not one that protects you it goes to the White House strategy that is you know I mean look at what trump and the team did when Mitt Romney came out and said he was troubled by this. They put out a video that was designed to embarrass him that that wasn't a message to run me. It was a message to the other fifty two senators in the Senate say. If you say something negative about us we will come after you with all of the might of the three hundred million dollars we have in the bank at the campaign and the pulpit that we have here at the White House so I think Lockhart is one hundred percent right and I don't this is just my perception of this. I don't believe that Mike Pence was just completely unaware and just like this dope dope guy just dopey guy who didn't know what was really going on again. That is my speculation but let me give you the details from the Washington Post report before I do so those Jank. Do you WanNa jump in I do. I have a four words to say here. Tick tick tick tick okay all right. Listen listen. They're announced sexy was spot on so pence definitely trying to escape by on Salang but trump made him a henchman as you're about to see so he can't skate on it and and now he's he's having to go all in and of course the president as usual made them walk the plank and now he's out there defending the president so that he's just as culpable as as trump his and if if trump thought he can get away with it by blaming Ukraine getting dirt on the BINZ got another one. That was my pets. Let's like you think he wouldn't do that. He do that do that except he's now incriminated himself publicly so many times and his whole response wants to this impeachment investigation is like Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's what I did. That's what I did because I I WANNA. I WANNA drain the swamp right so he can't blame pence for it but what I think trump likes to do is drag everyone down with him hundred or something. That's what I was giving so. Since there's no way that he could fully deflect the pence then. Why is he doing it. He's just saying like no. I want everyone defending me because if you don't I'm GonNa drag all of you down with me and make sure because what he cares about the Republican Party. Hey here's my principles. Akobo hears about his colleague. Mike Pence his partner the vice president no the only thing that Donald Trump ever cares about is donald trump so if he's got to kill everybody on the way down politically within the Republican Party. He'll do it in a second but that's eventually what's going to cost them the presidency because enough. Republican senators are going to go this guy's. GonNa kill us all man politically so what's what's the point of saying with him. We haven't gotten to that point yet but tick tick all right well. Let me give you some more detail into what trump actually really had pets do prior to us finding out about this whole whistleblower complaint according to The Washington Post trump instructed pence not to attend the inauguration Shen of Ukrainian President Vladimir Celeski in May an event White House officials had pushed to put on the vice president's calendar when Ukraine's new leader was seeking recognition and support for Washington so you have a White House officials pushing to do this but at the same time simultaneously you have donald trump telling pens no don't do it. It's bad idea don't go to the inauguration and pence didn't go to his inauguration. Okay now that's relevant because it's part of trump's ploy to make this new Ukrainian President Ben to His will and essentially carry out favors for him right because remember Ukraine needs the US to assist them in this military eight. Let me give you more detail now. Instead of traveling to kill as has he was supposed to pence was supposed to for this may thirtieth inauguration pence actually attended a trump campaign in Jacksonville Florida and made an official the trip to Canada later that month now months later the president used pence tells the lead ski that US aid was still being withheld while demanding more aggressive action on corruption the Ukrainians probably understood action on corruption to include the investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden so when pence finally did meet with Celeski and this was on September first. Here's what happened during that conversation pence told Dolinsky inskeep that aid was being withheld due to corruption concerns. That's exactly what trump wanted him to do. Pence emphasized trump's frustration that the e you should provide more aid to Ukraine pence didn't mention Biden but former officials claim pence mentioning corruption was code for that issue whether pence intended or not what yeah I I actually think that that under sells it so involving pence actually implicates trump more not less as usual trump doing more damage just to himself because he's not smart enough to figure it out because when when trump says in the call listen the US does a lot of things for you guys. He doesn't mention the military aid as far as we know would love to get their official transcript anyway he says but we do a lot of things for you guys now. I need you do me a favor though and investigate okay bye but then he goes up by sending pence to say remember that corruption we were talking about an end. The call trump clearly connects corruption to bind Leiden any doesn't mention any Ukrainian the corruption. It's not like well. You guys have this massive problem. Oh you know what eleven percent of it is the Biden's you know I'm worried about corruption overall no when he talks about corruption he only mentions by okay so then he sends pence over and says now remember. We're not sure about the aid and we wanted you to take action on corruption. The poem that actually is the quid pro quo and any prosecutor worth their salt could prove that as well there are team. They say there are team and one guy I says hey. I want you to investigate Biden. That's corruption. I'm talking about the next guy says remember that corruption we were talking about. That's why we're not giving you a done deal so like like I if you're trump defender no amount of facts or logic will matter to it doesn't matter you will say on the one hand Hunter Biden. What does he know about Ukrainian guess. What is he getting paid for that copy audio corruption when I say now. It's not technically illegal but I actually agree that it is corruption Hunter Biden. Doesn't anybody greeting guests. You know why I say that because I'm a reasonable human being I can assess the fact that a guy who doesn't know anything about Ukrainian gas gets fifty thousand dollars a month why because they neighbors Biden right now when we asked you hey when trump says investigate corruption. I E Biden and then Penn says I'm not giving you the money until you investigate corruption. Everyone knows what they're talking about. The only resume not admitting it if you're trump supporters because you're a trump supporter you're like I don't care about facts care about what the leaders say. You know what you know it you know it and also why is your cult leader having a very public meltdown right now. I mean he's been having a public meltdown town ever since this whistle blower complaint became a public news but here's the thing. I think an important part of the story is holding Vice President Mike Pence accountable and not allowing him to push this ridiculous narrative that he was insulated from all this and he was completely unaware because and I'm kind kind of burying the lead so I'm going to show you one of the most important parts of the story according to The Washington Post reports his own aid and one of his top aides was listening zooming in on that call between Donald Trump and water Mir's Alinsky so the aid is a Kellogg Kellogg pences top National Security Advisor iser listened in on the call from the situation room which was the standard practice did not see it as unusual or flag any concerns about it to the vice president now that's according to aides spoke to The Washington Post but here's one other thing after that call happened literally the day after that call happened pence Hansa supposed to get a summary of the conversation so are you telling me that he received that summary of the conversation and then proceeded to meet with Vladimir Amir's Alinsky without reading the summary of that conversation so the vice president and actually prepare for his meeting with..

"That's out there about him but he ah pushes this side in favor of things are a little more anodyne like like Fiscal Policy and you see pence make this change pence tries to live within the tea party but not get wrapped into some of the more social stuff he doesn't get wrapped into the birtherism for instance tries to keep it very tight on fiscal policy policy so by the time he is running for governor. He is running as somebody who's not a culture warrior. He served one term as governor of Indiana from Yep got elected in two thousand twelve to two thousand sixteen election and it's clear that he still had his eyes on the White House. He traveled abroad. He talked about national issues. he still had to run the state was he good at the statecraft of being a governor dealing with the legislature being on top of policy. No no he was a objectively. I can tell you that he is a terrible government majer. it's obscene other governors. I work in this is not a comment on his policy or as politics but just on his his handling of the building he was not dialed in with the lawmakers he did not have a sense of things and let me give you the best example of this which is he's so focused on running for president building out his National Network of donors that he doesn't see the religious freedom battle coming in twenty fifteen. He doesn't see how that could bite him and he has nothing to do with it Moore. This is the thing that the basically ends his career. In that moment in twenty fifteen in two thousand fifteen a group of legislators develop a piece of legislation. This is when gay marriage is becoming more accepted. They come up with this piece of legislation. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act which says that I guess no business person has to participate eight and a gay marriage. If it violates their religious beliefs doesn't get involved in drafting the legislation. How does he respond to this. The headwinds look fine for him. Politically in this moment he doesn't see the backlash that he saw the previous year with the same sex marriage a ban that they were trying to put into the constitution solution and he decides well. It looks safe. He sticks his head up out of the bunker. He says I'M GONNA sign. It and I'M GONNA take credit for it. which is something he often liked to do things? They didn't work gone classic politician right things he didn't work on. It was Reagan that said that you know success has a thousand fathers failures in orphan. So you're here we go. Here's one of the one thousand fathers for this and he pops up. It's the exact same time that the the Comic Con Convention is in Indianapolis and what what light this on fire and this is something that is incredible. It's a facebook post from Georgetown K. Mister Sulu he says and he I think he's out at this point. He says that he knows exactly what this law is that Mike Pence assigning because he saw it in the internment camps that his family lived in and he sees it now with the bigotry towards him and his and other lgbt residents this just catches on fire and and it becomes something that pence doesn't know he's never experienced before it becomes a viral moment online at catches on fire and just cashes them flatfooted because he he thought it was safe. He had no idea what he was getting into and this brings him into this fateful interview with George Stephanopoulos where he goes on air and he tries to defend this legislation that ironically enough he had nothing to do with creating he tries to take credit for it and he goes on there and he basically it sounds like he's supporting discrimination in Indiana and it just wrecks his career. That's the end of it after that like it's nobody's even talking about him running for president anymore or after that interview March thirtieth two thousand fifteen they're talking about whether he can survive a bid for reelection as governor. We're listening to the interview fresh. Air's Dave Dave Davies recorded yesterday with Tom Lo Bianco author of the new Book Piety and Power Mike Pence and the taking of the White House after a break. They'll talk about the conversation with trump that helps secure the vice presidential nomination for pence. Why pence's wife Karen was angry when the ticket won the election and and whether members of trump's family have been angling to bump pence.

"It landed on women directors and Emily is here to come out against. Two notional. No. Okay. So so I was a little bit nervous about doing this show because I have been in Italy last week at the Venice film festival. And if you ever want to get completely protected from the news and not have any of it, enter your consciousness, go to a film vessel in Italy. It's just like you're on another planet entirely, but some of the problems still exist there that exists here. And I think Venice had one film out of twenty one and it's competition that was directed by women this year just to give you some comparison. Toronto is just started today or yesterday, and I think they're thirty three percent and their competition. Again, not great, not parody, but like they're trying. And there's a group called the fifty fifty by twenty twenty group that is trying to push for parody by the twenty twenty and all the major international foam festivals they campaigned can. And there was a big thing. You might have seen where Kate Blanchett at much of people go on some steps and they got into signed this agreement for transparency. And trying to get more women in the festival, but better barrow who's the director I'm getting so inside baseball. But this is where I've been for the past week Alvarado various director of the Venice foam festival, hesitantly agreed to some of these this protocol, but also made the statement that he would never agree to a quota. He would quit his job before he agreed to a quota, which I find to be like the most precious and and melodramatic thing to say like, you have one of the most influential jobs in film, like that's a nice job to be the director of the Venice foam festival and the Mirai DEA of code. I don't not even like saying what the quota would be. You would quit your job over it at every festival, the North American doing better on the whole. But a lot of Europe, Ian ones consistently say it's quality that they're judging first as if a group of men has an idea of quality that is inherently. Objective and infallible, and you hear this over and over and over again and it's, it's insane. So congratulations. Jennifer can directed the Bobby Duke and has a one woman with a film in the competition there. I heard that somebody at her premier when she was showing up and they clap for some journalists from, I think the u. k..

"Again, I feel as though we're over and over again, being exposed to the same set of facts in different forms and yet each time it surprising, Josh, what did you make the book? Well, so first of all, I actually I feel bad for Bob Woodward in that Michael Wolff beat him to market because how many of these books do you really need. But the thing is the way Michael Wolff beat him to market is that Michael Wolfe is not really a reporter as such. And so that book was very sloppy and he was able to like, you know, yeah, plausible enough. Throw it in. Let's publish it. Whereas like Woodward will have the more accurate yet pretty similar sounding because it's easy to make up plausible stuff about Trump that is very similar to the things that actually happened. So this is probably the book that people should read. But I think a lot of people will have read fire and fury, and maybe they read Omarosa book and they're like, do I really need another thing that tells me the slightly more accurate version of the thing I already knew. As you say that, I'm like, oh, yeah, that's why I'm not gonna read this. Car would you think? I feel bad because it's not funny like on a global level, but that should is funny. I know it's not gonna change anything. It's not really that helpful, but like reading quotes where they're just like this fucking idiot. Like, you know, they just turned the corner and they're like, can you believe how goddamn stupid he is, and I just, I'm gonna take it because I feel that we have. So little else. No, I agree. I agree. We're going to allow ourselves to appreciate it because what else are we going to do? Exactly Emily. One other piece of this is there is a lot of news in the book. Someone pointed out that there's just a a side in this book about after Trump winning Mark meadows in the house saying, let's get Paul Ryan. We can take him out right now that basically there is a sect of the house of their publics in the house that really did view Trump as permission. So to Caras point, this really is about deeper, frightening truths about what's going on inside the White House. What did you think the way that this is going to reach the general public and people who won't even read the book is that it'll be taken like they'll be news items that are published around like the bigger red. Relations in it. Right? So the people who are going to read the book are people who are going to enjoy the experience of reading the book. I don't. I don't know about that man.

And they rolled out a sixty second ad. They have LeBron James in it. They have Serena Williams in it and other great players. They talk about dreaming to being the best.

As soon as he opened his mouth, he sounds like he's, he's like he is on the brink of laughter for some reason, what are they? What are they feeding them? And there was this who is this man? They don't even put it. They don't have room for his name anyway. He does. He actually does. He. I think it's exciting. It tells you just how hard this fight is for them because you know that this is not the first person they call. Like this marble mouth weirdo, like, I don't know who it is, but we're gonna find out.

I think the folks run in the Hillary Clinton campaign did is you know they just missed assessed middle America, and you know, this is again deletes trying to make up for something that you know, frankly, Nike has had some lawsuits in recent history is. Is that phrases amazing. Frankly, Nike has had some lawsuits in recent history. Yeah, he didn't want to bring it up, but he must be Frank. Is he talking about sweatshops or. No, he's not. He's not at all. That I found to be the funniest thing about this when people are like Nike's never done anything this terrible. They had children make sneakers in like caves. Yeah, they've done worse things than this guy's which is also why I'm hesitant to be like Nike is now the brand of the resistance? No, you get the fuck off this sage. Get the hell off here. Look what I got. I put these on. These are Nike shoes. I, I love my country. I really thought about wearing some Nike today. I almost were a bootleg, Nike sure that I got in Japan because I felt like that was the right statement to side. That's close as I was going to get to wrapping the brand, you know, they're trying to swing it back in their favor. But this, like I said, this is not the way to go about it. I mean, frankly, if they want to make an ad about sacrificing, why don't they go all the way? If this is Nike put Jesus on there. This is dot. Can you imagine that campaign. So I think it's worth unpacking. So frankly. I also like that in the midst of this interview in which he's supposed to be attacking Colin Kaepernick. He's like com. Cabernet. He's only ten percent of the way to Jesus. What the meaning of it. It's like, go all the way with it. Someone who's even better at sacrificing for a worthy and noble endeavor. Jesus, please, God.

"'cause I know the bottom line. Doesn't take much which is maybe surprised to all of them who think that they're couching the all of these thoughts and things. It's like, Nope, it's pretty easy to suss out a lot easier than you might think it is Josh. So we did see Susan Collins, I think, talk her way out of caring about the row Email where he is claimed at settled long conversations with her in his Email. He tried to take out the claim that it was settled law. I think it's a interesting and revealing, but not but a little squishy. Well, what are you took out and this is a legalistic parsing, but then this is a judicial nomination hearing what he took. I was a claim that all legal scholars believe that it has settled law and so the line has been well, that's not true. There are legal scholars who disagree with that, and I think it's something for season Collins to fall back on and say, well, this was not a claim about his own view or the administration's view was a claim about the views of all legal scholars. But I think you know stepping back what you're saying. There's not a lot to suss out is absolutely right in the sense that like he's a conservative Jew. Bischel nominee and you have a Republican majority in the Senate and what they want is a conservative judge on the court and Democrats do not want to conservative judge on the court, and that's all anybody cares about here. And then you have this ridiculous process where you go and you pretend that we care about what's in some specific Email or all of these things. When really it's about the way he's going to rule on the court and the whole process, which is fundamentally a political process that Republicans will win because they have a majority in the Senate. Then we pretend it's a conversation about all of these other things when it's really fundamentally about how he's going to vote on the court. Right. And a lot of this is a dance in that Democrats are trying to raise concerns in order to make it unpalatable to support him, not teach us something about him, right? But the weird thing then is that those concerns are about all these answer Larry issues, and a lot of a lot of cases they're also raising concerns about the about how vote, but it's like the concerns about that. We haven't seen enough of his emails. We're not really going to fundamentally learn anything from seeing more of emails. The concern is always gonna vote. Right? Well, that raises the question. So what. Do you think at this point it would take to get Collins and Murkowski to at the very least expressed doubts about voting for Calvin on, you'd need some sort of significant misconduct. I think revelation in new information. Yeah. Yeah, I think that's right. Quiz, what was that a quiz? No, no, it was. Sure, yeah. Yeah. It was a quiz. It was a quiz and the answer he got gotta right. Emily, I found myself as I'm watching the hearing to Josh's point because a lot of this is theater. I find myself even just in paying attention finding it difficult to tell the difference between what's important and what's not. Because you have one group of people whose job it is to say, this doesn't matter and another group of people whose job it is to say this matters. Totally. Do you find that in watching the hearings? And do you think that it's hard for people watching this unfold, make sense of what's really going on. It's like trying to solve a mystery that we already know who killed. There's, there's not. It is a lot of kind of just play acting. This are going through the steps. And I think that for the small portion of people watching who are undecided on how they feel about the major issues and ways that he's going to vote, barring some kind of major revelation about misconduct or something like that. I don't think anybody's looking to be surprised by anything that's going on here. And then in the meantime, there's all these opportunities for people to have their hero moment. So I don't know Spartak because it's everywhere. You look too many Spartacus far too KAI Sparta. It is me. I am Spartacus the one running for president. All right. Now they're doing well in the hearing on make fun of Cory Booker another day. What have have this one? All right. We come back. Okay. Stop..

"Some of which had been previously proved and some of which hadn't. In addition, the Washington Post of chained leak committee, confidential documents, cavenaugh testified to take Kennedy quote. No, I was not involved in handling Bill Pryor nomination. Bill Pryor was a controversial anti wrote. Judge was being nominated. The federal appeals court later in that same testimony cavenaugh said, I'm not familiar generally Mr. prior, but that was not one that I worked on personally. But then later in some of these emails, it was revealed that he was invited to meetings around the prior nomination. This lots of many people say that he is committed perjury. In addition, cavenaugh testified in multiple confirmation hearings that he did not know Republican Senate staffers had hacked and stolen democratic emails to help the Bush. Whitehouse, get a leg up on the opposition judicial fights and play no role in the scandal. I tell you perusing the cavenaugh emails today. It was like a punch in the face about all the things that made Bush terrible. There was the phrase unitary executive appear to want to Kavanagh's emails. And I like I was all of a sudden I was in two thousand and three. I'm Pat days, but. Today, Patrick layhee showed that Cavanaugh was the recipient of a number of obviously stolen democratic materials. Some of which were purported to be from a quote, mole in an Email marked, quote spying and was told to handle the stolen documents with utmost secrecy. You can debate some of these other questions, but to me, it is pretty fucking glaring that around this specific issue. I think he lied around a bunch of this, but this I think it's pretty hard to deny Emily. What do you think? It's just too easy though? I mean, you'd have to think that there there's some code word for spying or like or like you could just call it like spaghetti. Like, I don't know if there are any like Vander pump rules fans in this in this audience, but that's a really good useful code word for basically anything you're not supposed to be doing pasta rather. It's pasta. I'm sorry. It's not about the pasta. It's not about the pasta. With a fucker you talking about. I'm just saying that's like putting spine in the subject line just feels like it feels like it's throwing us off the sense. I don't know. Yeah, it is like, you know, they do. I worked at the White House. You get a little sloppy because they're emailing all day. It's a job. You get a little angry. It'll heated your rights on the shouldn't, but you definitely don't put subject lines spying here or the documents we stole from the Democrats. Don't tell anybody is public record is going to be a fucking library. I mean, I know for me, I get a lot of anxiety about writing emails and sometimes I try to like write a clever headline. Just grab grabs his attention, but you know, around five o'clock when it's kind of the end of the day, you're kind of on running on fumes, like you of through cleverness Alba window. You're just like, what does Email about like spine. Okay, fine. Whatever. I can go home..

"Hey, there I was on, keep it this week. We live. It was a good episode. It was good was he wants. He is the host KCRW's all the president's lawyers and left right and center podcasts. He's a senior editor at business insider, and it'll be on tour this fall in September twenty Santa Monica, October, eleven in San Francisco on November seventeen New York. Please welcome. Josh barrow. Josh, hey, thanks to long Trump. No, I'm glad you. You were basically on the stage by the time I got to the end of it. It was good. All right, let's get into it what a week. If you're like me, you're a messy, bitchy lives for drama. And so this was quite a week we had from Bob Woodward's book that proves everyone around Trump thinks he's an idiot to anonymous op EDS that prove everyone around Trump thinks he's an idiot and who can forget the tough guy bro off between little boy Marco and big boy, Alex Jones, but we'll get to all of it because we're going to start with one of the most important battles of Trump's term. This is the battle over the nomination of bread. Cavenaugh a lot of Democrats have done it. I think a pretty good job of sort of bringing the fight to these hearings. First of all, yesterday we saw this exchange between Kamala Harris and Brad Kavanagh. We have a clip. Have you ever dismissed special counsel Muller or his investigation with anyone? Well, it's in the news every day. Have you discussed it with anyone with other judges? I know have you discussed Muller or his investigation with anyone at Kasowitz Benson Torres. The law firm founded by Marc Kasowitz. President Trump's personal lawyer. Be sure about your answer, sir. Not remembering, but if you have something you want to. Are you certain you've not had a conversation. Anyone at that law firm has spent some Kasowitz Benson Torres, which is the law firm founded by Marc Kasowitz who is President Trump's personal lawyer. Have you had any conversation about Robert Muller or his investigation with anyone at that firm, yes or no? Is there a person you're talking? I'm asking you a very direct question yes or no. I need to know the, I'm not sure I know everyone who works with that law firm, but I don't think you need to. And then by Thursday morning, some frustration was mounting him on committee members about only ten percent of Kavanagh's public documents being released to the Senate committee. Previously confidential. Emails were relief to the New York Times which showed Cava argued in two thousand and three against the idea that Roe versus Wade ought to be considered settled law. And then Corey Booker lead to series of committee confidential emails that led to this moment in the committee. I will say that I did willingly violate the chairs rule on the committee confidential process. I take full responsibility for violating that sir, and violated it because I sincerely believe that the public deserves to know this nominee record any Senator officer or employee of the Senate who shall disclose the secret or confidential business or proceedings of the Senate Shelby liable if a Senator to suffer expulsion from the body and to punishment or contempt. So I, I would correct senators. Really. That apply by the and bring the charges. All right. All right. It's interesting. Interesting because like that you're into all right. He fights Senator Harris. If you're nasty with the disdain that drips from her voice is truly all I want to achieve in this world. That I want does she have something there? It's like it's a setup for something that's going to drop about apparently as a friend who's one of the three hundred lawyers at this firm. So are we going to learn that? He talked with this person about this? Does comma Harris know something? We don't know. I feel it feels like we've seen the setup. Haven't seen the punchline. We don't know whether there is a punchline, right? I believe today. He said, no, he didn't discuss it with one particular lawyer, right, but I find it hard to believe that she went into that confrontation just waiting for him to deny something well, yeah, but I also find it hard to believe that Cory Booker pretended to have broken the rules of the Senate. I guess. I guess nobody is. I believe Cory Booker is claiming that that he was released a mix of documents..

"Promo code love it. Log. Nice. It is to be here at the improv per us guys. There's been. A lot of news, there's a mole. Somewhere hiding plain sight. Mixed in with the goons and white nationalist. And the discards of Republican politics over the last thirty years. There walks patriot. He looks like he wants Donald Trump to succeed. He acts like he wants Donald Trump to succeed. But as we learned in the New York Times this week, it's very conflicted about it. But thanks to this quiz o. blower. To this good Julian Assange. We now have learned something. Donald Trump is not fit to be president. But have no fear because there are adults in the room. People like are anonymous hero who every day, make sure that deregulation judicial nominees move smoothly. Despite the chaos. Bigotry that surrounds them. Fuck that guy. My God. Unbelievable. Now. I am. I think on the scale that exists amongst liberals, the democratic socialists there. Among liberals, they're all liberals. It's a brand thing. Oh, you're a super liberal. We'll get into it. You're not seizing the means of production. You're a liberal. You're a liberal who likes the new bands. I feel as though there is a consensus around the value of the so-called adults in the room among liberals and the consensus is fucked that you should walk out and say what you're seeing. I actually am a little bit more sympathetic than the consensus. I'm a tiny bit over towards the. We still kind of want those adults to be there, but. But this op op-ed is such a self serving. Bit of self righteous. What does this Ahmed gonna do? Nothing. He's gonna do nothing. It's going to rile up Donald Trump. It's going to rile up his supporters. It didn't teach us anything. We know I didn't see Paul Ryan changes mind. I don't even know if he's answered a question about it. Paul Ryan's answers to questions about Donald Trump actually have what is technically known as a red shift in them because he's moving so far away so quickly, or is that a blue shift? Is there anybody who knows the guy? It's red, right? Yeah. Okay. Yeah, his his answers have a red ship, you know, like when a car siren passes by and it's like. You know, he sounds like he's moving away. You're part of it. You're part of it. You're complicit and you're enabling it, and there's two of the pieces of it that were the most going to me. One was this idea that there were whispers early on amongst the cabinet about invoking the twenty fifth amendment, but we didn't want to provoke a constitutional crisis. The term constitutional crisis has come to mean absolutely fucking nothing. It's not a constitutional crisis when you invoke an amendment to the constitution according to the spirit and letter of the amendment. It's not a constitutional crisis. If you're using the amendment for the exact purpose it was written for that is why it is there. I'm not saying it'd be a breeze. I'm not saying it wouldn't be messy. I'm not saying it wouldn't be the shit show to end all shit show. I'm not even sure we'd survive and I don't even know that he would leave. Am I totally not work, but that would be the crisis. That would be the constitutional crisis not invoking the thing that's the first part. And the second part is there's this part of the the bed where he says, it's not about what Trump is John. It's about what we've allow Trump to do to us. Hold on. I want to. I want to get it. Exactly, right. Because it's so stupid. Hold on. Literally going to look it up. I'm gonna go, I'm googling times resistance, hero. I'm telling you, I think it'll pop up. I link. The bigger concern is not what Mr. Trump has done to the presidency, but rather we as a nation have allowed him to do to us, we have sunk low with him and allowed our discourse to be stripped of civility. No, fuck. You know. No, no, you're doing it with him to us. You're not outside of it. You're not better than it..
