"I'm John this is the John that's our show impeachment the textbooks tell us that impeachment is the ultimate correction for misconduct by federal officers and others right now impeachment is focused on the presidency and what is to be done so I welcome Adam why he's a resident scholar at the American enterprise institute the system professor George Mason university's Antonin Scalia law school where he is in charge of the Boyden gray center for the study of the administrative state and that's a very important word I learned from Madame because he has done us the favor of reading closely the federalist papers particular the threes written by Alexander Hamilton the first secretary of the treasury John Jay and of course Mister Madison ones at once and future president about the mad the matter of impeachment and the chief executive and the relationship between the legislative branch the first article of the constitution and the executive branch the second article of the constitution and the judiciary branch the third article of constant a constitution all these were in Mister Hamilton's mine when he attended to the word administration Adam professor of very good evening to you thank you for this it was an accident of my education that I did not study the federalist papers until late in life and now thanks you have studied them again so I I thank you very much for leading me this way I skipped law school but now I have to go back and back and back what I learned from your paper in the National Review online is that is very important to understand the word administration as the founders understood it as Mister Hamilton in particular understood it because that will help us correct some of the assumptions we now make about how the Senate should conduct a trial if it happens of the president of the United States good evening Adam and what does it ministration mean especially in federalist number seventy two happy new year John you may recall shortly before the holiday break president was impeached by the house very quickly people talked about the Senate's duty and so in National Review I wanted to write about the Senate's duty in an impeachment trial which I think requires us to think more deeply about the Senate duties in general and understand that requires us to understand what the framers meant by administration and so as you said the I focus of this paper on the word administration Hamilton stresses that it's it's so important he actually uses it twice in the federal as big a line that he he offers a one federal paper and I quote themself in another he says the true test of any government many constitution is the administration that produces tendency to produce a good administration the reason why I brought that up because the word administration today we think of administration as the executive branch or the work of the executive branch of ministering laws that Hamilton recognize yeah that that's the that's the most important part of administration but administration does more problematic goes all parts of government and their contributions to steady energetic but also restrained government and so I started my discussion of the Senate and it's going to set an impeachment trial by reminding people of the senators are not expected to be sort of ignorant of government ignorant of what the executive branch is doing that's what some people seem to want of a jury of Senate jury of senators who never even heard of of Ukraine or the meditation actions in Ukraine no the framers expected the Senate to be deeply invested in administration knowledgeable about government and about the affairs of state and that is why the Senate can never truly be a jury of people with no pre formed opinions on the matter of of impeachment now the senators are assumed to know these things deeply that's why they were given the role of trying impeachment not because they would be ignorance because they'll be deeply knowledgeable you quote Mister Hamilton from the federalist of that he quotes the true test of good of a good government is this aptitude and tendency to produce a good administration emphasis demonstration emphasis the government so he's not speaking about one branch of the three he's talking about all three working together is that correct that's why the Senate's role in all of this is to help promote stability the house of the house of representatives they expected to be an energetic and impassioned sometimes too energetic an impassioned legislative body they were counting on the president to have energy of his own energy in the executive well they understood the best thing significant power in one man or woman would have great temptation for abuse or misuse of that power and so they the Senate in so many ways was expected to be the more statesmanlike the more dispassionate the more stable the most stable part of government involved in the executive branch through things like the confirmation of the of of the appointment of of sent an officer or sorry cabinet officers or the of the appointment of Supreme Court justices giving advice and consent to treaties and so on the Senate over and over again was expected to be a stabilizing force not just with respect to the house so that's important as well but also a stabilizing force with respect to execution and again that's why it's the Senate could never be some kind of totally impart a totally ignorant body of jurors in the Senate agree to trial but because they were expected to be deeply invested in and knowledgeable of administration of government I want to press you on this album because it's because we have assumptions that are being made right now about how they should send it should conduct itself and will speak of that in a moment however what seems to be left of Hamilton's original understanding of the Senate is the advice and consent portion of its duties that is each time the president nominates an officer to a role in his executive the Senate has advice and consent is that all that's left of my of Hamilton's original understanding what's a crucial part of it is not every is not necessarily every executive branch official what what we called officers which is the highest level of of cabinet officials a classically say the secretary of the treasury and maybe a level one two down below him but that was going to be the Senate's one of one of the Senate's most important roles in administration the advice and consent power on appointments as well as of course advise and consent on on three now I want to press you then all right access all right however why did Hamilton depend upon the Senate you've you mentioned the the passions of the house what was the Senate to Hamilton NJ and Madison but chiefly to Hamilton how did he how do you picture in his mind's eye well it was expected in Madison was almost as well in the the Celtics affected to be more dispassionate more statesmanlike precisely because of the term but they were given six years in office rather than the two years of a congressman in the four years the president give that person a certain ability to be to to put the immediacy of politics at a us more more of a distance of only a little more distance so have a longer term and also the original Senate this is different now of course with the original Senate of Brazil of the ritual constitution they were appointed not by direct election but by the boss they were selected by the state state legislature and that strikes me is significant the fact that the senators represented the collective wisdom of a state yeah which emphasizes the state's independence of the federal government of the central government and that is not something you see on television Adam H. it but you you present the case that it's still there that the senators can recover this that they represent a state that is independent of the chief executive how many would constitution to change a selection of senators definitely had a significant impact on this and absent a constitutional amendment in the other direction we'll never fully recapture that it's true that as originally envisioned senators were expected to represent the interests of the state both in preserving the state's own sovereignty but also directly investing the states themselves in the operation of national government it wasn't just to protect the state's against the federal government was to give the states some direct stake in the federal government itself will never recapture that after after the constitutional amendment but the point of my piece in National Review online was to argue to the senators who as we as they left for their holiday breaks will wondering or thinking deeply about what it means to be a senator in an impeachment trial trying to put them back to what the framers had in mind so that senator can at least try to come as closely as possible with that model all right let's let's be specific here because we're dealing with an impeachment that turns on a matter of foreign policy the details are lost to the footnote that will accompany this article in a hundred years however we're gonna apply ourselves to the general of foreign policy you quote Jon J. in federal sixty four saying that he the Senate is the right place when it comes to foreign policy because of what independence and dignity is that it is at his understanding that these would these men would stand apart from Jefferson's idea of sending gunboats to the Barbary coast is that how we understand it independence dignity also selectivity right the scent of the much smaller body than the house and so it you couldn't where you can really trust house of representatives a much bigger body to grapple with issues the Senate would be of more this passion more statesman like more politically insulated more selective body of men and women that I think is key and Madison Mister Madison this is sixty three you make me feel so smart Adam they have federal is sixty three he sees the Senate is cool and deliberate now I'm going to suspend irony here all right cool and delivered and not subject to political furious which is a fabulous construction is that something that that is communicated to the to the American people today well among other things have changed since Madison time is not just the selection of the Senate but of course as you know better than anybody the technology surrounding the way we communicate travel and interact with one as all of that is changed around is to I I want to make it I want to suggest that it's just me locomotive election all of that has made it harder for senators to do the job in the classical sense but the framers expected senators today are grappling with political stories the bay you get through TV radio electronic mail and everything else it's much much harder I think to be a senator in the classical sense today and the senators feel this is bent on leave anybody I'm speaking with Adam why he's a professor of law at the Scully a law school at George Mason University he's also American enterprise institute and is written for the National Review online about how the founders conceived impeachment in the Senate for the chief executive the president this is one branch of government judging another branch of government and when we come back the other players here to concern ourselves with the the Chief Justice why is he involved in the impeachment of a president and what what does that contribute having the courts present and why not the courts why the Senate.
Mitch McConnell says there is 'zero chance' Trump is removed
"The impeachment trial which is expected if the house passes this impeachment of President Trump this next week senators serve as jurors and they take an oath to be impartial. That's important context for what you're about to see. The Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell Sean Hannity. Last night they everything I do during this. I'm coordinating with White House counsel. There will be no the difference between the president's position our position as to how to handle this. There's no chance the president's going to be removed from office. My my hope is that there won't be a single Republican who votes for either of these articles of impeachment have essentially the jury foreman in this very serious constitutional process announcing he's going to have the defended dictate the trial. And thus obviously if you control the rules you may control. The verdict norm Ornstein a long time measured voice in Washington responding thus quote McConnell studying and outrageous admission that he's in the tank already for trump on the trial. Rose is a flat violation of the Ot will take his jer if a jury foreman and a murder trial was founded work closely. With the defense he would be prosecuted strong words McConnell though and this is important knows what he's doing in fact he's taken this very oath administered by the Chief Justice on the Senate floor to be impartial before so he has every reason to know that what he's saying today is a public announcement that guts or even violates the OT is about to take care. It was in the impeachment trial of Clinton. We'll all senators. Now stand and raise your right hand you will do impartial justice. According to the Constitution and laws so help you God the joining us now. Is that historian or scenic attributed the Atlantic and a resident scholar at the right leaning American Enterprise Institute as well as Joyce fans for US ATTORNEY MSNBC NBC legal analysts. Tell me you're thinking norm. I smacked by this. Not that I expected. McConnell was is going to follow the facts and where they would lead which would be to remove Donald Trump from office. This is a a partisan process. It's going to be a partisan process but to basically admit before you even start the trial that it's rigged is just quite astonishing and in a way it reminds me of Donald Trump in the campaign saying Russia. If you're listening get the emails followed by just a few weeks ago. China if you're listening get me dirt on Biden. It's I'm going to say it right out in the open. And what are you going to do about

"Michael Rubin resident scholar at the American enterprise institute is hard to top on matters Middle East he speaks a language knows leadership travels there frequently Lee often help sort through the complexities of this region this time Michael was cautious about the brother now Turkey is threatening to move I guess he said the Bradys taping nations had tweets last night saying it's imminent first of all what do you understand to be the situation on the ground before we talk about what that means the situation is it remains imminent we've withdrawn perhaps a few dozen are pulled back a few dozen forces which were in coordination with the Turks that said the other issue which is changed to is that we are no longer coordinating with the Turks on air space however we haven't stopped controlling their space so this is complicated Turkish plans because they assume that they would have a green light when it came to the control of the airspace and they do not but when it comes to facts on the ground the question is if the facts on the ground has changed completely whether economically punishing Turkey would change those issues which are most concerned for example to American national security the continued detention of the Islamic state prisoners as well as for the simple fact that when Turkey's control that border in the past we've had it's become basically a way station for the Islamic state that is true now you write in your piece the Kurdish administered regions of sherry are the most secure and tolerant within the country in a one desire to conquer them as far left to do is supposed to terrorism and more to do with the desire to expand Turkey's borders a radic it depression of any Kurdish self government not to ship not subordinate to Turkish dictates end to grab local oil wells and then you know the Turkish move on Cyprus forty five years ago and suggestions as the same sort of situation if in fact there grabbing turf in oil are they going to be likely in the business of leading ISIS run rampant with the black flags again all we that is one possibility but the broader problem too is that the United States and Turkey have fundamentally different notions of what constitutes a terrorist group let's put the Kurds aside for a moment one of the greatest concerns to American forces in American strategists this is why people like to ten secretary Mattis resigned is that many of the Turkish proxy groups have incorporated former fighters from the Islamic state war would match what the United States believed to be al Qaeda but you're saying because of this realignment we have to worry about the rebirth of isis absolutely we do the United States plug the vacuum it plug the vacuum with the Syrian democratic forces which are predominantly Kurdish but when it comes to the Turkish backed free Syrian army some members of the free Syrian army especially the former members of job on the strap which is gone through several name changes our affiliates with all created that is one of the concerns Turkey of course would say that the Syrians democratic forces are predominately affiliated with the Kurdistan workers party the so called PKK which has waged an insurgency inside Turkey for more than forty years and so that is where Turkey is coming from I've traveled back and forth to north east Syria and while there is still some affiliation with the PKK when you look at any database of attacks and so forth Turkey would be very hard pressed to suggest that many if any attacks had come from the areas of Turner Syria in which they are now talking about and at the same time our country was puzzling over Turkey in the Kurds a shameful domestic.

"To for policy innovation resident scholar their pleasure to have months. We've got a lot to get to. But let's get to Franken. Cambridge for Dr Matthews Frank. You're on the voice of Boston be. Oh Hello there. Gentlemen. You know, we we talk about this medical situation in this country. I didn't need them if this if this was such an imperative, and if this was so good that what we've started to do here if it was so good, and this was such a wonderful deal at they're trying to perpetrate us. Why is it that the entire congress at the United States is is? They did just null and void as far as concern. They're not even they're not even they don't even. I mean, they get away from this thing like like it had cancer and. Calling. I think your point Dr Matthews is that the congress does not participate in ObamaCare they have their own rolls. Royce, titanium platinum whatever care plan, and they refused to do it put themselves in the same plan. Whereas the clarify let me clarify that. Because under the law. I think it was Grassley who put the provisioning and that members of congress and their staff would have to be under ObamaCare, and that was accepted. So that became part of the law once that became part of the law and Democrats realized what they had voted on. They went to Obama and take you gotta fix this. Because otherwise we're going to be under this plan. And we've got to pay the premiums ourselves because we make too much money to get the subsidies. And so they went to office of management and budget. I think it was that. And he looked round said here's their solution. They decided that congress is a small. Business and as a small business it came under not under the exchanges, but under what's called the shop act in there. And so they were able to continue getting their tax payer back subsidies in the F E H the federal employees health benefits program and didn't have to join ObamaCare exchanges like the rest of us. So they pay the law passed requiring them to be part of it. And they went and got themselves and exclusion. Well, bottom line is his point was that the as we speak. They have special benefits that the rest of us. Don't. That's right. And and my point is if they if they were to pass this. They would probably say in there that they were going to be part of it. But as Frank is trying to. As. Only explained they will find a way out of it. Well, then they did at this time, and they will do it again. So the but the parliament and Canada is part of their national health plan. In fact, the Pierre Trudeau. This before when he was prime minister came to the United States for major surgery transplant of some sort because he was he would have been six months waiting in Canada his own country. And he was prime minister that wouldn't happen here. Senator Schumer needed a knee replacement. Hope it doesn't. But if he did. He'd be at the top of the list. I mean, but if Joe schmo from Dubuque Iowa needed it under the national plan he'd have to wait. That's right. In fact, it hit become the incident of Canadians coming south of the border to get care in the United States had become so prevalent that in the late nineteen nineties. I was tracking this at the time. They the Ontario health plan that's the largest one in Ontario decided to no longer if you were coming across the border to get to jump the line. It would no longer pay for your insurance. No, no longer pay for your coverage. And so as a result people started buying private health insurance in Canada that they could only spend in the United States if they wanted to cross the line and and NPR at the time reported that one of the fastest growing businesses in Canada was Canadians buying private health insurance that they could use in the United States. Well, there you go. So people try to find a way around national health insurance that doesn't work Michael and Bedford. You're on the voice of Boston. W R K L with Dr Matthews there. Good afternoon. Thanks for having me on. So I have a slightly different perspective. I say the US healthcare system is fundamentally broken primarily because business interests of taking it over. We have we pay twice as much as any other country outcomes are visible, and we. People don't have access, and I think mostly because it's been corrupted by special interest by money and. And I think that really the only solution is we have to look at what other countries doing. They do a much better than the United States does. And I think single payer nationalized healthcare is inevitable because right now people just just taking money out of the system at the top. And we just went through the problems with nationalized healthcare, sir. You get media milk or care. You guys are just making stuff up the because I know not making any following this decades. Why are people in England trying to get private? Why are people in England trying to get private insurance, sir? Well, again, you can make up any stories you want the facts out of the United States pays twice as much as any other country outcomes of below average, and we have millions of people who can access healthcare. Failed. This system has failed. Miserably we asked. Has would it didn't have problems? But there's nobody making up stories, sir for you to just is that what happens on the left. You just discount. Everybody else's statement. We spend eighteen percent of GDP three trillion dollars on healthcare that delivers things that have low. What you could get the most other countries. Hey, listen to sir, sir. I'm going to talk to Matthews respond. But well, how come how come Arab sheiks come to Boston to messiah near or to Mass General as some of the best hospitals on the planet? How come they come from the Middle East of here with all the money? They have you. Tell me. Well, Middle East is it does not have health care. What I'm telling you is they choose to come here. They don't choose to go to England or Canada or Germany. Again, you're making things up. In other countries to they do not they come here. There were cases. Specifically, one guy went to New York one of the one of the kings, and he needed medical Kerry state at the WALDO, he took the whole WALDO for story hotel, and the people who had reservations were kicked out. Oh, tell me that it's made up and anything that disagrees with you, sir is made up the doctor maximum. Let let me weigh in on this number one. We do spend more than any other country on healthcare. Mike was right about that. Let me explain part of it is is just wasting the system, but another part of it is most of the single payer countries. The government sets the budget for healthcare. So the government says this is how much we're going to spend on healthcare. So I would argue Michael they if you and your family said, we're having tough financial times we've been spending four hundred dollars a month on food. We are now going to set that at two hundred dollars a month. And that's all we're going to spend on food. You may still survive you'd be spending less, but you're not gonna get it for two hundred dollars. What you got for four hundred dollars. So we do spend more weight, but but other countries simply do they spend less arbitrarily set by politicians number two on the outcomes depends upon what outcomes you're measuring cancer survival rates and things the United States passes all other countries hands down when you see the the various studies that come out and say. The US other countries do better. They're usually measuring things just watch your measure. They're using measuring things like do people have access to free medicines. Do people have access to flu vaccines and so forth free. They get those kinds of things, and and.
