The Latest Twitter Files Show How, Once Again, Trump Is Vindicated

"What's the biggest story in the country right now? Well, I would say it's the Twitter files. Not that there aren't other important stories. There is the economy. There is the border, but in terms of these revelations coming out, almost in successive waves. And I want to focus on the latest one, which journalists Barry Weiss calls Twitter files part 5. This is getting again very little if any, mainstream media coverage. They're embarrassed. They, this is their strategy, was their strategy with 2000 meals. Let's try to ignore it. Let's hope it kind of all goes away. If it doesn't go away, we'll have to wade in and start attacking Elon Musk. And some of that is starting to happen. But by and large, nothing on NBC, nothing on CBS, nothing on ABC virtually nothing in the rest of the mainstream media. Now, this, I think, makes it even more obligatory for podcasts like mine to relay what we're actually finding out. And that's really what I want to do in the next couple of segments. So the focus here is on the banning of Trump from Twitter and how that came about. It came about right around January 6th and we're going to look at it blow by blow. So the first part of what happens is that is the Trump right after January 6th, tweets out. The 75 million great American patriots who voted for me America first and make America great again will have a giant voice long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form. Wow, whoop do you do? And then Trump goes on to say in a second tweet that he's not going to go to the inauguration. Now, interestingly, there is a movement gathering at Twitter. Of Twitter employees demanding that they ban Trump. And one Twitter employee says, there's a lot of employee advocacy happening and The Washington Post in the early afternoon of January publishes a letter signed by 300 Twitter employees to Jack Dorsey, demanding that Trump be banned. We must examine Twitter's complicity in what president elect Biden has rightly termed insurrection. So Twitter now begins to look at Trump's tweets. And they conclude, he's not violating their rules in any way.

"Are in the battle for the soul of this nation. I believe history will look back on four years of this president and all he embraces as an aberrant moment in time. After he won and officially became president elect, Biden confidently declared that democracy prevailed. Democracy prevailed. But then January 6th happened, since then, the threat of political violence hasn't waned. In an interview with Fox News earlier this week, South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham predicted what might happen if the former president is prosecuted for mishandling classified documents. They'll be riots in the streets. In every election, the candidates say the stakes have never been higher. But Republican pollster Whit Eyre says this election isn't like all other elections. Because we've never had a former president who's continued to deny that the current president was legitimately elected. That's never occurred in American history before. And that makes midterms a different environment than we've ever had before. Even as recently as this week, the former president was demanding on social media that he immediately be reinstated, which to be clear is not how the American election system works. Candidates endorsing Trump's election lies have won primaries and will be on the ballot in November. But air says for most voters, as a motivating issue, democratic erosion isn't as tangible as things like the price of gas. Most voters are moved by things that affect them personally and directly. With this speech, Jennifer says Biden is trying to define the election as being about something larger than inflation. One way you succeed with elections is by telling the nation what to be afraid of. Marcia is a professor at Texas a and M university, who specializes in presidential rhetoric. He's providing this ultra heroic frame. This is an existential crisis. This is a threat to the nation. This is about our most important value. And finding a frame, a theme that ties together seemingly disparate ideas and events can be useful when running a campaign. Take Democrat pat Ryan. He just won a special election for a congressional seat in upstate New York. In a race that was anything but a sure thing. And he didn't shy away from talking about abortion rights. He framed the Supreme Court's recent abortion decision as being part of a larger threat of extreme ideology. We stood up and proactively said this campaign is about freedom. This campaign is about choice. These are unifying American values that I think transcend even the very partisan corners that everybody's in right now. Ryan admits it's grim. But he found campaigning on threats to democracy as Biden

"House. Impeachment managers have wrapped up their final day of presentations in the senate trial of former president. Donald trump congresswoman diana get focused on statements from rioters during and after the incident.

Donald trump's behavior makes it necessary to bar him from office in the future because the way they're putting it. The democratic managers is that they're not trying to punish trump for what happened but that they feel it's important to convict him so that he can never hold office again. I think that that is something that they're trying to appeal to the senators that it would be frankly dangerous to have him. You know running for office again in this country.

Kate, Thanks for joining us this morning, give us more of a flavor of what to expect on Wednesday in terms of action. From President Biden. Yes. So President elect Biden, then President Biden is going to come into office and take decisive steps to roll back some of the most egregious moves of the Trump administration. He's going to take steps to move us forward across the course of the first week and a half in office. You're going to see him move on promises that he made on the campaign trail two to ensure that we are focused on workers. You'll see him make good on his buy American promise you're going to see him make good on promises to move us to toward a more just and racially equitable society. You're going to see him make movement on racial equity. On. You're going to see him make movement on climate on jobs s O over the course of the first week and a half. He's going to do everything that he can within his power to move us forward. But then, you know, as your correspondent just said, that's only one piece of the agenda. The second piece of the agenda will be working with Congress. You saw President elect bite and roll out the American rescue plan. On Thursday night. This is a plan to get desperately needed direct relief to people who've been hardest hit by this crisis all over the country, and it's an effort to fund a coordinated federal vaccine effort. It's an effort to get shots into American arms to ensure that we can once and for all, finally, get this virus under control and get our economy back on track. Jury hearing some Democrats and many Republicans saying it's just too expensive. There's been bipartisan support for all of these pieces. That's why would really point that out. I mean, if you look at the big core Planks of this plan. For example, Senator Rubio supports direct relief checks. Senator Romney supports expanding the child tax credit. There is bipartisan support for the big planks of this plan, and I would also note that the plan came about as a result of consultation with bipartisan governors and mayors from all across the country. The president elect spoke with Republican governors with Republican mayors to here. What they need. What's going on with their constituents what the most dire and important needs are for their constituents. And so this plan reflects the urgent needs the things that people need right now. I mean, We've got millions of Americans unemployed. We've got thousands of Americans dying from the virus every day. There's no question. We're in a state of emergency here, and this plan is designed to get the relief that people need to them right away. And President elect Biden looks forward to working with Congress to get bipartisan support for this bill and get it done as quickly as possible. First things first inaugural address that comes on Wednesday. You just heard, Congressman Myers say it's time for an open, honest and transparent discussion from president for President Biden, he says, rejecting the politics of deception. What can Americans expect to hear on Wednesday? What is the major goal of this address? So I think what you'll hear from President elect Biden on Wednesday will be a reflection of a lot of what you heard from him on the campaign trail, which is that he believes we can bring this country together. He believes that we have to bring this country together. That A unified America eyes the only way that we're gonna be able to tackle the massive crises that were grappling with. I won't go too much farther in terms of previewing this the speech because I'll let the president elect speak to it on Wednesday. I think you can expect that This will be a moment where President elect Biden will really work to try to turn the page on the divisiveness and the hatred of the last four years and really lay out a positive, optimistic vision for the country. And lay out a way. Atlanta path forward that really calls on all of us to work together. I think that's what Americans all across the country want. They want a government that once again is focused on doing the right thing by them on Del Ping them in their day to day lives, and so you're going to hear President elect bite and really lay out a vision to get us to a place where we can work together. Because that's what Americans want. That's what they voted for. In this election 81 million Americans voted for President elect Biden in part because he was laying out a vision for this country that gets us to a place where we can work together, so you'll hear a lot of that from him on the 20th. He'll be delivering that message across an empty mall there. The Capitol Mall, the entire U. S. Capitol, become an armed camp. Right now, you've had to cancel certain parts of the inauguration. Cleaning the train ride in Washington, D C, including some rehearsals. Are you certain that the ceremony's gonna take place on the West Front of the Capitol as planned? Well, that is certainly our plan. I think that will send an incredibly important visual image to the world about the resilience of American democracy on go our plan, and our expectation is that President elect Biden will put his hand on the Bible with his family outside on the west side of the Capitol on the 20th. Look, there is no question though. Of course, we are in a volatile time. I think you know, unfortunately, only have to look at the chatter on social media to see that we're in a volatile time. And so we're making preparations will begin meeting tomorrow daily meetings with the outgoing leadership in national security and law enforcement to ensure that we're preparing for any scenario that That should arise after noon on January 20th. So we're working to ensure that will be prepared. But we have full faith in the United States, Secret Service and their partners have been working for over a year. On the planning to ensure that this event is safe. So we're very much looking forward to President elect bite and putting his hand on the Bible at noon on the 20th Kate Bedingfield.

Yeah, On a down day was really technology Stocks, Emily that with the underperformers as the market digested some reports on that stimulus package. Some of the details Yes and P 500 off by around 4/10 of 1%. You can see the NASDAQ 100 off by 6/10 of 1% that under performance that I've talked about some interesting subplots, though within the technology sector.

But some of these big mega cap tech stocks the likes of Apple that we're not really doing very well in 2021 so far apple off by around 1.6%. It's down almost 3% so far in 2021 Barclays, really sounding a warning on Thursday, saying that Apple's valuation is a little bit of a concern, And they think the stock could fall by as much of 10% because the potential of five G and its latest handsets overstated, Of course, Samsung a big rival, Dapple. Revealed its latest generation of phones on Thursday and Tesla also off within that basket of mega caps down by 1%. It's only the second negative day that it's had in 2020 2020. So far our news of a recall. Now we've seen Bitcoin. Meantime, really bounce back of the last couple of days. The leveling off again today. What were you seeing there? Why is it on the up again? Bitcoin mania is still in full swing, The buzzword really being volatility. This is a volatile instrument. It goes up one day down the next. It's an update today, pushing hard to go towards $40,000. They did breach it at one point on Thursday, then Harvard I love it. What strategists That list is saying about Bitcoin is that there is increasing interest from institutional investors and retail investors alike, and potentially, that bodes well for continued ballot rally in Bitcoin. The thing is, Bitcoin gained 300% in 2020, and that is causing some concern that that big run up in the price that we saw over the period of 12 months. How likely is that to continue? But an update of Bitcoin a. Raising some of those significant losses that we saw? The start of the week and back on positive footing. All right are at Ludlow. Thank you So much for your insight. There. I want to get back to the big story of the day. President Elect Biden set to unveil at $1.9 Trillion Cove it relief package. Joining us to discuss our Bloomberg Business Week. Economics editor Peter Coy Peter, What do we know so far about what the package will contain? How will be different than anything that passed during the Trump administration? The big thing will do is give more money to people. The checks, which were limited to $600, under the bill, that passed under Trump would go up to 2000 under this bill, which, of course, with Democrats massing for all along. It also extend in the supplemental unemployment insurance, which is scheduled to run out and march. More aid to states and localities, which is something that the Democrats are pushing for, and they were not able to get through under the Trump Administration. Let this one go for things like vaccine deployment. And trying to get schools open. Which is you know has been a big priority for President Biden, Child tax credit and so on. So this is the first stage by the way, there's another asked these could be having later be going beyond this 1.9 trillion It'll get into things like infrastructure and climate, but he wants to knock this one off first. Look at $350 billion in state aid $160 billion for vaccines. What is the likelihood that he will be able to get Republicans onside? Given the history here? I believe no Republicans supported Bill Clinton's first economic plan, and just even less than a handful. Obama's right only three for Obama. So there's a long history of lack of bipartisanship in Washington. Nothing new here, although, of course things of reaching extreme. Over the past week. Actually, the fascinating question is whether Biden is going to get any kind of honeymoon from Republicans in Congress. It could be that the blow of the capital invasion last week was so extreme Don't rattle people and caused him to behave a little bit differently and maybe say, you know, let let's see if we can work together. That's going to be the Bidens play tonight. A couple hours from now, I'm sure that's the way he's gonna invite kind of pitch things thing. Folks, that's all something he would say, folks. Let's see if we could work together on this for the good of the people and stop making this a zero sum game. Well, That was my next question, Peter, because obviously we saw you know a significant minority of Republicans supporting impeachment. And I wonder if the way the Trump Administration is ending changes the way the Biden administration will begin. And if the fact that he has been, you know all along, he hasn't been focused on impeachment himself, or at least saying that he is he's been focused on that message of Unity. How much does that help him? I think that message that resonates with a lot of people. But then others look at this and say you claim you're in favor of unity. And yet here the Democrats are trying Torto convict the Trump of high crimes of his tippin ear's, Um, you know, you can't have it both ways, So it's gonna be interesting, but you know, there are Republicans in the House and Senate. Who like the idea of getting more money to people. Marco Rubio of Florida, for example, is in favor of the $2000, and it doesn't take that many Republicans to sign up. They need 60. Votes in the Senate to pass this without having to worry about a filibuster. Now. What about the actual distribution? Obviously, it wasn't so smooth during the Trump administration. What is your level of confidence that Biden's team will be? Significantly better And if the process once something is past will go smoothly. It's I don't think he's gonna wave a magic wand and suddenly everybody's gonna get the vaccine. Um, it all we can hope for is that will move in a better direction and providing more money to states and localities would be a big help. You know, states and localities, unlike the federal government have to balance their budgets and some of them just Don't have the money to hire the people who are needed to get this out with Penny. Wise, pound foolish, the very idea that we can't spend the money to get the economy restarted..

"And how do you talk to him about what Wednesday's in January are gonna mean from now on last Wednesday in January, Of course, we saw the rioters Storm the Capitol building. This Wednesday in January. We're seeing the second impeachment, it looks like a president Trump. Next Wednesday in January is going to be the inauguration of Joe Biden. Whatever comes with that. I'll talk with Justin about that coming up at the bottom of the hour. We'll pharmacies say that they have a scene. President elect Biden's vaccine goals and that they can meet them. Marc Rayman Lard is covering the story for us and joins us now Mark. What's the latest? Yes. So it's a tall order for what President elect Biden wants to do. He said that he wants to get 100 million people vaccinated in the 1st 100 days in office, so one million people per day. S 01 of the things that we're hearing is particularly today. The National Association of Chain Drugstores, which has about 40,000 member pharmacies around the country, says That you know they need to start being utilized Right now. The vaccines being distributed to states it's some of it's going to those CBS is and Walgreens, which have been doing the outreach into the long term care facilities. But the idea of sending the doses to retail pharmacies is something that was meant to come later in the vaccination campaign. And so this particular associations is saying, Look, if you think of 40,000 pharmacies across the country where, according to them, 90% of Americans live within five miles of one of those pharmacies. That's a pretty good way to get to 100 million doses. So this is one group that's calling for that. But no doubt it's not just the pharmacies. We know the supply is an issue of the logistics of shipping. These things out is an issue. It's going to be a challenge for Biden to complete what he says he wants to do with or without these pharmacies, no matter what, and even with the shortcomings of the vaccine program to this point It almost seems like he's betting on a sure thing. I know the 100 Million and 100 days is a stretch. But once we see a lot of these early hiccup sort of being ironed out, the expectation is, But for most people, I think That we will see the numbers increased greatly so that it wouldn't necessarily be. It's a great gold toe Have. How's that? Yeah, Yeah, sure. And but it's gonna be a challenge. No matter what I think, you know, in terms of vaccine supply, it seems like it is According to the Trump administration yesterday. They've decided to now you know, release all of their supply that we have no longer holding back the second dose, and they said that they did that because they felt that the supply line from the manufacturers visor and Madonna Is solid enough that they're they're confident that if we get 10 million doses, we don't need to hold back five million of them to make sure we have the second dose for people. We think that in 21 days or 28 days, we'll have the supply so So that's positive, and but hopefully everything continues going that way. And you know Madonna, for example, alone, said that let's see, we've purchased 200 million doses of Madonna. They are planning to deliver 80 million doses in the first quarter of this year, and then the second quarter of 100 million more. And so that's one vaccine not including The millions of doses that were supposed to get from Fizer so the supply could be there. It's just I think what you're saying is kind of working out these initial phases where the wheels can start spinning faster and moving better that eventually you could perhaps get to that 100 million in 100 days. And again. It's not like we're going to get the vaccines and life goes back to normal. Unfortunately, we mentioned it. Earlier, The New England Journal of Medicine says that it looks like Protection doesn't start until 12 days after the first shot, and that's only at a 52% effectiveness rate. After the second vaccination. The effectiveness rate goes up to 95% for The Fizer vaccine and for them, Oh, Derna, it goes to 94% and as the director of the Vaccine Education Center was quoted as saying, That's not 100%. What That means is one out of every 20. People who get the vaccine could still get moderate to severe infection. That's not perfect, right? It's not perfect. And again, you know, I think one of the things that's going to happen here, too, is eventually by the time we get so many people vaccinated that need to be vaccinated. It's but it's possible because we don't know how long the protection lasts. That some people may run that course we still have yet to figure that out. I was actually just You know, looking into this in terms of trying to figure out if you know people are starting to get vaccinated in mid December. Uhm you know if it lasts four months or five months or six months, we don't know. But By the time most of the American population is getting vaccinated in in the spring into the summer, you know we could be running out there might be a need the need for refreshes what I'm trying to say So I think that you know there's still definitely The caution here from health officials that it's gonna take a while for us to get to perhaps back to normal and get the amount of people vaccinated that we need to get back to normal. And this is why again even if you get that vaccine Still saying, you know, the mass, the social distancing hand washing all of that is still paramount for people to continue to do, Mark. Friend Lord with ABC News. Thank you. Appreciate it. You bet. Thank you when we come back one of the things that people have been doing to two by the time, I guess until that normalcy returns. Is living in fantasy land. Hmm. Get out! Your 10 sided die..

"Fox News Radio. This'll is a Fox News alert the House moving closer to impeaching President Trump for a second time. I'm Jared Halpern at the U. S. Capitol, along with Fox News Radio's Rachel Sutherland. Debate is wrapping up on a single article of impeachment charging President Trump with infighting. Insurrection A week after a deadly breach of the U. S. Capitol. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi opened the debate consistent, all of us The president must be impeached. I believe the president must be convicted by the Senate. Constitutional remedy that will ensure that the republic will be safe from this man that was so resolutely determined to tear down the things that we hold, Dear. And that hold us together. A Republicans of mostly defended the president during the bait. Casting the impeachment is a political stunt that will not help heal a country after the election. Referencing violent protests and riots in American cities over the summer. But House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy said the president does bear responsibility but not impeachment. I believe impeaching the president in such a short time frame would be a mistake. No investigations have been completed. No hearings have been held. What's more, The Senate has confirmed that no trial will begin until after President elect Biden is sworn in. But here is what a vote to impeach would do. Vote to impeach would further divide this nation. Vote to impeach will further fanned the flames, a partisan division. Most Americans want neither in action nor retribution. You want durable bipartisan justice? That path is still available. It is not the path we're on today. It doesn't mean the president is free from fault. President bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack on Congress by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding. These facts require immediate action of President Trump. Except his share responsibility. Well the brewing unrest and ensure President elect Biden is able to successfully begin his term. The president's immediate action also deserves congressional action. Which is why I think a fact finding commission and a censure resolution would be prudent. Unfortunately, that is not where we are today. It's House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy. Who, as you heard there is opposed to this single article of impeachment, given the fast timeline, given the fact that the Senate trial is very unlikely to begin before President elect Joe Biden takes office a week from today, but says that the president does bear responsibility for the violent riot that took place on the Capitol grounds last week. Urging. Instead, a commission be set up in a presidential censure resolution be moved forward. House Democrats are moving forward with an impeachment again a single article that would charge the president with inciting insurrections. Unlike the impeachment from 13 months ago, we do expect some bipartisan support from this. A to least six Republicans now have signaled they will vote Yes, on this impeachment that includes Liz Cheney. The number three House Republican, the Conference chair, a member of GOP leadership as I mentioned Fox News Radio's Rachel Sutherland with us as well, and Rachel is this debate has been going on here at the capital for the last two hours or so. President Trump has put out a statement he has there. The president, citing warnings of more violence in US cities, calling on all Americans to help ease tensions and calm reporters. That's easy called tempers. Reporters to Jared. The president's statement says in light of reports of more demonstrations, there's there be there must be no violence, no law breaking no vandalism of any kind. He goes on to say This is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for. Now, remember, Jared, the press is not taken responsibility for the deadly ride that the U.
