"Mountains, Interior, East Bay and Diablo range of the Santa Cruz Mountains and the Sacramento Valley. It's 5 21. This is weekend edition from NPR News. I'm Lulu Garcia Navarro. New data from the 2020 election shows a big swing in one voting group away from the Democratic Party. Latinos made a significant right would turn and partisans of both parties are looking hard at why one of them is David. Sure he is the head of data science had open labs R and D a progressive nonprofit, and he joins us now to talk about it. Hello? Hi. So after the election, there was this narrative that the Latino vote swung right because of Cubans in Florida or Mexican Americans in South Texas. But what did you find when you looked precinct by precinct? Precinct by precinct. What we really found was that even though there were particularly market shifts, you know, in South Texas, there were 30 point swings in many counties. You know, there were counties that voted for Democrats solidly in the 70 to 80% range since the 18 nineties that Trump either won or came very close to winning. And in South Florida generally and Florida in general, there was something like 13, or 14% swing. That said, basically everywhere where there were large concentrations of Hispanic voters. There were large swings in the 6 to 9% range. And you know that ranges from the Bronx in New York to Arizona to Massachusetts to California. This was a national trend that happened basically everywhere and you know, one of the biggest predictors of switching from voting for Clinton in 2016 to voting in Trump, where attitudes toward crime attitude short policing. You know, I think that that's a microcosm for like a larger story. So when you spend time talking to these folks, what did they tell you was behind that? I mean, was it the sort of Racial justice issues that to fund the police was just not a popular message to them. I think the simplest way to look at this is ideology. I think that in the last four years as the clout of college educated white people in the Democratic Party has increased. You know, the Democratic Party brand has increasingly been associated with liberalism in a way that it might not have been before, And I think that There's a lot of micro stories. I think that you know if you look at defund the police that's highly ideological issue where liberals are on one end and conservatives on the other, and that really contrast to other issues, you know, like increasing the minimum wage or getting people health care where there really are a lot of conservatives who defect and have liberal positions on these issues. So the logic I guess follows that talking about highly partisan issues like immigration, for example, isn't a winning formula. In fact, most Hispanics wouldn't necessarily put immigration at the top of their list of priorities for reform. Why, then does the Democratic Party trying so hard to push these messages? It's a great question, You know, I think that there's something that you know, I've struggled with a lot of my career. And I think there's been a really big change in how Democrats talk that you know, Democrats historically were seen as this kind of coalition party that you know, we had this broad mix of conservative black and Hispanic voters and white liberals and working class white people. And you know, we tried to find language that would make everyone happy. But I think with the rise of online donations with the rise of social media, this is like really change the incentive structure for how a democratic politician can get ahead and I think that that's really changed. How we talk and how the party is perceived in really fundamental ways. Well, one party's loss is another's gain. And you've concluded that former President Donald Trump and by extension, Trumpism has been good for the Republican Party in terms of broadening and diversifying its base. Well, you know, I I definitely don't want to say that Donald Trump is good. You know, I'm a liberal Democrat and everything, but I think there's a real point, which is that the big thing that Donald Trump did is he created these large coalitional shifts, you know, in 2016 among non college whites and in 2020 among non college nonwhites. Toward the Republican Party and kind of pushed, uh, you know, college educated voters toward the Democratic Party. But these voters aren't distributed, you know, efficiently geographically, you know, Donald Trump because of these coalition shifts that his strategy you know, ended up making happen. The bias of the Electoral College went from, you know about a point in favor of Democrats. If Barack Obama had gotten 49.5% of the vote, he still probably would have won the Electoral college to being four points biased against Democrats. Joe Biden got about 52.3% of the vote, and if he had gotten 52% of the vote, he would have lost. And that's a sea change in American politics. That's the way in which I think Donald Trump has helped the Republican Party is that the coalition shifts that his rhetoric have triggered has made it so that Republicans can win majorities with 48% of the vote consistently, and, you know, contrary to what people might say this has never happened before in American politics, and I think that this explains Lot of why the Republican Party is acting the way they are. David Shore, head of data science and open labs, R and D. Thank you very much. Thank you. Costa Rica is ancient indigenous people made pots from clay and from stone. They carved figurines and tools and for nearly a century, the Brooklyn Museum had many of these artifacts in its collection. Recently and announced that it had repatriated more than 1300 objects to the muscle. National, The Costa Rica. I view it as a win win situation. That's Nancy Rosado, senior curated for the Arts of the Americas at the Brooklyn Museum. She initiated the reparation after she was hired in 2000 and one As I was in storage. Surveying the collections, I noticed that there was a great deal of material from Costa Rica. And as I looked more closely, I saw a lot of it was ceramics that were not in great condition. There was stone tools that an art museum would never display. But those ceramics had high research value. So Brasov reached out to the muscle National, the Costa Rica. It's a museum that's devoted to the antiquities of Costa Rica.

"Sacramento Valley High of 58 in Sacramento today. This is morning edition from NPR News. I'm Tanya, mostly in Los Angeles, and I'm Rachel Martin in Washington, D. C. Good morning today, the House of Representatives will vote on a measure to remove President Trump through the 25th amendment declaring him unfit for office. The effort is expected to fail and is considered mostly symbolic, but it opens the door to another vote tomorrow when the House is expected to vote on an impeachment article. Impeaching the president for inciting the attack on the U. S. Capitol last week. Several Capitol police officers have not been suspended and as many as 15 other officers are under investigation in connection to that riot. NPR Justice correspondent Ryan Lucas joins us now, Ryan. Good morning. Let's start with those suspensions. What can you tell us? Two officers have been suspended so far. That is, according to representative Tim Ryan, who leads the House subcommittee that is investigating thieves. The attack on the capital. One of these suspended officers took a selfie with a rioter. Another put on A maggot. Hatton was seen directing folks inside the building. The acting Capitol Police chief also says that several other officers have been suspended pending investigation. And then there's the criminal investigation. Some of the people who were there at the Capitol last week who participated in these riots, they sort of have made it easy on investigators because they were so open on social media. They really were open about it on social media. They took photos and videos of themselves posted them online. Some of the rioters, though, have been harder to I D. But investigators are getting help. As of last night, the FBI had received 70,000 tips from the public to help investigators identify and track down these folks. Um I under stand that investigators are also trying to figure out if there was an actual organization of some kind behind the attack. What can you tell us there? It's right in, officials say it's going to take time. Weeks, if not months. Toe figure that out one of the keys to unlocking that question may lie in the two pipe bombs that were planted the day of the insurrection. They were found outside the Republican National Committee in the Democratic National Committee headquarters, which are both on Capitol Hill near the capital. Those bombs didn't go off, so they haven't received a ton of attention since last week, I talked to Chris Swecker. He's a former head of the FBI's criminal division. And he said those bombs suggests someone at least had done some planning. Concern eyes that this person took the time to learn how to build pipe bombs built the pipe bombs have to bring all the materials. Then transported them to the scene. You know the capital so that that's certainly indication of pre planning on on that person's part. The challenge for the FBI, Swecker said, is going to be to build out from there, whether that individual was working in tandem with others and how it's connected. If it's connected at all to the violence that happened at the Capitol, how do they go about doing up? Well, first would be identifying who planted those bombs. The FBI has put out a grainy photo of a suspect. The individual was wearing a gray hoodie, a white mask black pants in black and white shoes. The FBI actually released new photos of the suspect shoes and backpack last night. They think the shoes maybe special edition and could help identify the individual. Now FBI agents have been canvassing the neighborhood on Capitol Hill, where these two bombs were found, asking residents for say, footage from the ring doorbells. Or businesses for CCTV footage. The devices themselves, I'm told are still being analyzed at the FBI lab, and those could yield a lot of information for investigators, according to former FBI agent Dave Gomez. There are signature aspects to bomb building type of case type of device. The timer and all those components are evidence. There is nothing better. Or investigator than to find an intact device. Now investing. Investigators can pull fingerprints say from those devices, they can trace back the materials to where they were purchased, and all of that can help lead to the culprit. And of course, we're looking towards the inauguration on the 20th. Washington D. C. The mayor there telling people to avoid the city and calling in the National Guard, NPR's Ryan Lucas. Thanks, Ryan. We appreciate it. Thank you. Just in case President elect Joe Biden didn't have enough on his agenda. North Korean leader Kim Jong Eun has vowed to develop a raft of new weapons to counter what he called his country's main enemy. The U. S. NPR's Anthony Kuhn reports from Seoul. Kim's hardline comes as he faces an unprecedented economic crisis. North Korea's diplomatic policies, Kim said Saturday should focus on overcoming the U. S, which he called the primary enemy, a state TV news anchor quoted from Kim speech at ruling party Congress in Pyongyang. Alderman Me well, yes hadn't got the report stressed that whoever takes power in the U. S. He said, the nature of the country and the real intentions of its policy towards North Korea will never change. Him also said that his country would develop new weapons, including miniaturized nuclear warheads, tactical nukes, nuclear submarines and hypersonic missiles. Coming days before President Elect Yo Biden takes office. Kim speech is not exactly an all of branch. But it's not slamming the door by any stretch of the imagination, either, you know, so it's something in between. John DeLorean is a historian at Yonsei University in Seoul. And it's also A statement of where they can go next, you know, which is quite sobering. That is also the starting point for diplomacy and negotiation. In other words, Kim speech can be seen as an opening move in a new chess game. On economic matters. Kim struck a humbler noted the Congress admitting last week that his policies to grow the economy and raise people's living standards where an abject failure that you'd imagine organ in Julian's thinking, honey genomic curricula human the period for implementing the five year strategy for national economic development ended last year, he said. But almost all sectors fell a long way short of the set objectives. The Congress is supposed to come up with a new economic blueprint for the next five years. The North's economy is reeling under the effects of international sanctions, natural disasters and the coronavirus even though they claim not to have a single case. Some experts say North Korea is facing the worst economic crisis since the mid 19 nineties went up to a million or more North Koreans died of famine. One reason there are no reports of starvation this time is that under Kim Jong Il in North Korea relies more on private markets to buy and sell goods in depends less on imports. 21 Jew in North Korea expert at the Sea Jong Institute, a think tank outside Seoul, explains table Please be tika quicksand. Most consumer goods are now produced within the country, whereas in the past they depended a lot on Chinese made goods. Now, the domestically produced goods are available on the markets, and North Korean consumers actually prefer them traces. North Korea can't produce enough goods, though, to offset the losses from the pandemic. And she doubts that Kim will launch any bowls economic reforms. She expects Kim to just tinker with the existing system broke containment cargo cocaine intake. I seemed inconsistent, so I think when they can choose now is to continue with the current direction, which is to maximize internal capabilities. Some experts believe North Korea's dire economic situation may curb Kim Jong UN's appetite. For confrontation with the incoming Biden administration. Cohan bomb is a North Korea expert at the Korea Institute for National Unification, a government think tank in Seoul. We're calling the cannula during difficult times In the past, North Korea has stayed provocations in order to increase their leverage in negotiations, but it's a risky move now. When they're domestic situation is so vulnerable. Pyongyang has not tested any missiles capable of hitting the U. S. Since 2017. And that launched triggered tougher U.

But that's what friends are me not to So and and Friedman did. And the rarity of that step is part of the problem. They say a close and honest friendship that transcends life faces or emotional shifts requires work. And yet when there's tension or misunderstanding, it could be really hard to do the work to address it. In their book, big friendship, so in freedom and share what it takes to keep each other clothes as well as how they're different races affect their bond. So his black Friedman is white. And why friendship is one of the most fulfilling relationships of our lives. So in treatment, also co host the podcast. Call your girlfriend. Me not to. So welcome to forum. Thank you so much for having us man and Friedman. Welcome as well. Great to be here. Well, there are so many things that can affect a friendship or create a peoples in French. If I'm thinking about when one becomes a parent and the other dozen door when one gets into a serious relationship with someone and the other doesn't I mean, what are some of these things that happened in friendship second really test them. I mean, that is such a good question. You know, I think that we were both really raised to believe that friendship is a easy, greasy kind of of bond and that all other forms of intimate relationships can be tested. We have shorthand for this. You know, we grew apart or when you say my marriage is hard work. Everyone instinctively knows what that means. But they don't believe that. It means that you know, your marriage is bad. They just We just know that it requires work, and so in friendship, there is also a kind of work that is required, but You know you were right. When people get when people get new partners. A friendship can be tested when people have Children when people move away when people get sick, everything that contest You know, a romantic relationship or parent and child relationship are the same kind of conflicts that arise in friendship, and there are importance to deal with in real time. And that's so true, I mean not to So and and Friedman. I'm wondering if you think this sort of sense of friendship that it is supposed to be easy. Breezy plays into why people don't makes the kinds of investments that they need to Oh, absolutely. I mean, I think that you know this notion that you are just supposed to have your friendships in order somehow magically, like they just work is something that a lot of us have internalized a za message, and it really kind of goes to this. The notion of the way we talk about friendship, as like something that's nice to have, but maybe not essential for life well with wherein, you know, other things people might say, you know, family like there is there's no way of being in this world without family. And so obviously you were gonna work on those relationships. I think you know, friends don't enjoy that same assumption that they are absolutely Essential to a life well lived, and we're really going to value them. I think we also have to acknowledge that it's going to take work. And so I mean to say, is that what I say when there's something that we may perceive? Initially a subtle like A small slight or or a misunderstanding that we might just sort of talk ourselves out of addressing it. Yeah. I mean, I think that we definitely talk ourselves out of addressing it. Because of that. You know this implication that friendship is easy, and it shouldn't be hard. I think that the deeper truth there is that we all know that it is just riskier to bring that up in a friendship. You know, if you do it within the context of another relationship, you don't necessarily believe that that person is going to never speak to you again or that it will be the conversation that does the whole thing. But there is inherently A risk to be very emotionally available and also bringing up conflict so quickly and easily in a friendship. Yeah, it makes me think that the element of choice that you get to choose your friends and that isn't necessarily the same assay taking valves. In a marriage or with family members that that that almost plays into that fear that you're talking about the relationship could end just as quickly as maybe a developed on me not to so Absolutely. I know that I have certainly felt that way in my relationship of Anne. And in a lot of my other friendships, You know, I think that you are correct. We just don't have society like strong societal tethers. That elevate friendship as an institution that is worth caring about. And I just wonder what the world would look like if we actually said those things out loud to each other, because it's true that and and I have not made vows to each other, but it is also true that we are No, we are deeply embedded and each other's lives in a way that it's just undeniable. We share a bank account we share. You know, like we share a business together. We share our community. Together. We share a set of values were deeply invested in being each other's friend. And there's bad invalidated because it's not sanctioned by the state or by a ceremony. I No, I don't think that we're the only people who are asking these questions. Yeah, and treatment. I mean, So is that what makes a big friendship? I mean, I don't know that a lot of you would share a bank account business the way that you two have, and I'm sure that that's a big Part of the foundation of your relationship to some extent, But how do you define big friendship? Every friendship and truly every big friendship is different, and that is one of the things that is incredible about friendship it can. It's really adaptable kind of relationship to the two individuals who are in it. You know, I think as we thought about trying to define it, we we really thought about this sense of emotional connection and usually over the long term, you know, not a brand new yesterday had a friendship but something where you really put in the time. And gotten vulnerable and, you know, borne witness to each other's lives. Really? That's one part of it. I think that Thea other part of it is like having withstood some big changes. You know, when I think about my big friendships, you're right. Not all of them share paperwork the way that I do without me, not to. But you know, I have other friends that have Known me since I was a teenager on DH, the fact that they have kind of witnessed me and walk with me through all these phases of life is one thing that I think Really makes our friendship big and robust. On other times, it's it's you know, placed on the definition is more rooted in something like shared community or I don't know There's a really wide variety of ways of defining it And I think really, just that connection in depth is really where we kept coming back. So can you talk a little bit? I mean, I do so about how the two of you met Way met 11 years ago in Washington, D C. We were honestly like set up by a friend. We have a mutual friend who just said to us, you have to know each other. And so she invited both of us to her house on purpose, Tio. You know, to meet each other and the background was this at with teen soap opera that we've both really enjoyed. And you know, we talk a lot about you know the fact that because we were in the same social thie, it's possible that we would have met differently. But the fact.

Us Geological Survey stood up and said you can't do anything to that. Damn until you look at the material behind it is holding back a whole bunch of mercury and that was the very first time I had ever heard anything about mercury and the state of California and its role in the goal rush. Or how long have you lived in this part of the world? My family came to California as part of the Gold Rush. We were quakers. Escaping the east coast. Ten violent religious oppression moved out to become farmers I was raised in Concord California on that form and in one thousand nine hundred five. I married a farmer and we moved to Nevada county beautiful organic farm in a place called Penn Valley. Tell us about this county and just its history and the gold rush because it is a lot of history here. Nevada county was ground zero of the California Gold Rush. Far More gold was taken out of this county and specifically this river that we're standing above than any other place in the state of California. It's where the very destructive technique called hydraulic mining which is using power water monitors to to scrub mountainside. Looking for gold is where that was invented. They started to dam the rivers and convey that water over to these huge hydraulic mining activities. Which were recovering thousands of of gold but millions of tons of sediment not material here from Nevada county rolled down the river and kept flooding the Sacramento Valley and eventually the farmers downstream who are really tired of having their houses filled with all this debris sued and stopped the activity known as hydraulic mining. Was the connection between Mercury and gold. Tell us how that process works. Everybody came to understand that the very dramatic impact of hydraulic mining because it was blowing these huge amounts of sediment down the river. But people didn't understand. Was that before they use. Those hydraulic monitors. They would treat the cliffs with Mercury Mercury on the cliff. Pound the cliffs with water the water to wash down into sluices and in those sluice boxes were also filled with mercury. Why did they use mercury keep? Mercury helped enhance called processing. It has a unique ability to amalgamate or hold the gold. So little tiny flecks of gold. That might be smaller than an eyelash would fall into the pan. But they're just wash out unless they were captured by mercury. Mercury would grab the gold. Make it heavy fall to the bottom of the sluice. When they turn the water off. Miners would come through and suck that mercury out of the bottom of the sluice they would take the mercury put it in a hot place they would call retort it like think of a hot iron frying pan and the mercury sort of melting off the top or or training into gas off the top and at the bottom of your pan. You'd have sparkling gold. The problem is curious. Mercury is a very dangerous neuro toxin. And it's dangerous in a variety of ways so badly that the United Nations World Health Organization Amnesty of California have both named it. The top bioaccumulative toxic material of concern. Mercury is a neuro toxin. It affects the developmental human being so our ability to deform our nerves are heart or lungs. Our brains it creates Serious birth defects and people have focused on that for many many years but as research has been done we learn that it continues to damage us as adults. It seems to be causing problems with our hearts with our lungs and with our various different organs which accumulate mercury. So it's a known neuro toxin and that's strike one against it strike to is it bioaccumulates in our body. It doesn't really easily leave our bodies many of the things we take in. Let's take alcohol. You drink it and two days later. It's all out of your body not so with Mercury it stores itself in your body and builds up over time strike. Three is that this material does. What's called bio magnifies in the environment? So the most dangerous place for a piece of mercury to be is in water particularly in warm water. Mercury is taken up by the little bugs at the bottom of the food chain. They eat a little bit of it. It transfers up to the bigger bugs and then the bigger bugs and then the fish and then the humans or as we watch here today. The waterbirds that are flying around might pick up. Officiant eat it. They are eating a highly toxic potent load of mercury so much so that the lake. We're looking here like Anglo. Bright has fish advisories on it that advice that a woman of childbearing age eat not a single bass out of this lake fish mornings. I run along this Anchorman River. There will along the Sacramento. And then you go down to San Francisco Bay. The same warnings that so it's in fact the entire ecosystem. The mercury that is in the Delta is entirely from these legacy minds in the areas. We are the gold mines and sadly for California. We had a unique geology which led us have mercury in our state as well. The coastal range has the mercury minds. Whether it's the ones down in San Jose or the ones Tamales Bay or up over on the clear lake there are serious old legacy mercury minds which are contaminating the coastal range and the tributaries that drain from there into the bay or into the ocean where we are everywhere. There was gold mining. They use this mercury not only for the the hydraulic mining but also for the hard rock mines which dominated the landscapes for one hundred years and all of those continue to leak mercury into the state of California water bodies every time it rains
"Since one thousand nine hundred sixty. California has officially been known as the Golden State. And that's because as the plaque reads California's development and remarkable prosperity began with the discovery of gold humanities. Love of gold is fairly bizarre of all the hundred and eighteen elements in the periodic table. Gold is the only one which we humans have always gravitated towards gold was used earliest currencies. Gold joined us in marriage and was used to produce most precious artifacts. Maybe the secret to our love of gold is simply that it's beautiful and never tarnishes in eighteen. Fifty-three my father's great grandfather Henry. Cohn traveled from a tiny stelle. In what is now Poland to Hamburg where he boarded a boat and six months later. After walking across the isthmus of Panama Henry ended up in San Francisco. Henry Cohn was part of the Goldrush the largest mass migration in American history bringing about three hundred thousand people to California. It all started in eighteen. Forty eight when James Marshall found gold in his piece of land at Sada's mill in Coloma. The News of gold quickly spread around the world. At first the gold could be picked up from the ground but later on it was recovered from the streams and rivers with the use of panned. The gold rush peaked in eighteen fifty. Two and after that the Gold Rassoul getting thinner and harder to reach soon largescale and more environmentally damaging methods of traction cold hydraulic mining were employed. One hundred and seventy years later on the environmental legacy of the gold rush a significant and yet acknowledged as we'll discover in today's episode mercury which is a deadly neurotoxin was elemental to the process of gold-mining today large quantities of mercury from the gold. Russia's still polluting California posing a risk to every kind of living organism including us. I travel up to California's gold country to meet with Izzy Mountain. Izzy is a community organizer and environmental advocate with over forty years of experience working in rural communities to economic and environmental justice.

to have you with us tonight to be with him thank you for having me here well hi on the democratic side what we're hearing in the wake of the impeachment is to cover up its rig the whole trial is rigged president trump comes back and says it's a hoax and it shows just as the votes of showing just a partisan things are and yet yeah we're talking a little bit before we went on the air about how Congress is still getting legislation done there were you worked out a partisan bill on robo calls with Sir from South Dakota and Republican senator and the fact of the matter is so that partisanship is in the extreme right now that we're seeing but never lysis work going on in Congress there is and thank you for pointing that out in the twenty nineteen for the first half of the one hundred and sixteenth Congress we worked very hard to legislate in across many areas in in my case I have because we're now in the majority I chair the house subcommittee in the house very important powerful subcommittee overall we sent an approximately four hundred bills to the Senate of two hundred and seventy five of them by partisan this is not something that the American people are very aware of because most of the coverage of the Congress centers in and around conflict most people think somehow that work isn't being done but it is a lot of time that's being Spencer Lee in the home is the Senate right now but there's there's a feeling also that and just shine through and by the way I want to mention the name of the senator from South Dakota the work done the bipartisan bill on robo calls important thing called the tray stack which president trump is actually signed we can time permitting talk about that but let's talk about what's going on now in Washington and there is a lot of conflict Chief Justice had to come in the other day and say you know stop this is not if the ball size this is two one simple this is a on August place you're in he should be talking this way to each other well I didn't get to hear that part of it I know that the Chief Justice chided one of the house managers and one of the president's a journeys of course there is a heavy debate and divisions in the country because impeachment is a rarity in our country this is only the third time in our over two hundred year history of the impeachment is being taken up I was in the Congress when impeachment proceedings went forward with president Clinton and in many ways is it really tore at the fabric of our country so I'm not surprised that there are the divisions that that exist having said that it is also great if it's profound and the two articles of impeachment which I voted for in the house center in and around to a grave issues one obstruction of Congress and the other the abuse of power I'm troubled by health the trial has been constructed by the Majority Leader in the Senate and I say that because I don't know of a courthouse trial that is taking place in our country that doesn't have witnesses and evidence that is manifested in documents and that's what's being prohibited in the trial so if I'm at the end of the the back and forth presentations by the by seven house managers and the residents Ernie's they won't have sixteen hours they won't have sixteen minutes they won't have sixteen seconds to question what witnesses say if there aren't any witnesses and they won't be able to debate or ask questions about any documentation of the documentation manifests itself in emails and communications in formal communications in notes eccentric so I think that that is it's deeply troubling and it's troubling because it sets a precedent for future presidents that can essentially say what this president has said I can do anything I want what about the argument though that you hear from the GOP that the real concern was president is that the bar for impeachment will be too low that suddenly you're setting in motion in other words impeachments it will take place along partisan lines as they argue this is taking place along partisan lines well the first thing that the first thing that I would say about that is that the president's attorneys are not debating the substance of the articles and that really says something to me I think that went when the framers drew up the constitution in all of its elegance and established three coal equal branches of government in fact if the Congress which is an article one institution they wrote that first they rose into the constitution first if that co equal branch of government cannot function in its oversight in having subpoenas I am honored then it is rendered on equal and that damages takes down a co equal branch of government so it affects our Republic and that's where the the seriousness of obstruction of Congress has to be taken seriously well it isn't I president in his team up because it serves their debating points but I worry and worry a great deal about this because of what the framers set up so that we would have a Republic and every step of the way the administration has obstructed the Congress that's not something that's made up this a full record that the argument that the Obama administration under Eric holder would not also allow testimony or those to give testimony who were subpoenaed by Congress and fast and furious well I'm not suggesting that in each administration whether it's a Republican administration or democratic it is administration that they are perfect by any means that we're not I'm in the institutions are made up of human beings and we all bear the mark of humanity but there's never been an administration even in the Nixon administration they came forward with the with the documentation there was a fight that went to the Supreme Court to release the tapes and then that brought the downfall of the president but in this case I think obstruction of Congress is absolutely one hundred percent clear and it's been at the demand of the president that day no one answered the subpoenas and that documentation would not be provided talking with Congress woman an issue she's a member of the US house of representatives who represents California's eighteenth congressional district and I'm gonna quarter here in the speech that she gave which he said and some of you may want to respond to this there is a primal fear that the founders of this nation has a powerful members of our government will become and Hamilton's words he should not Lin Manuel man so it's Hamilton this is Alexander Hamilton we're talking about not Maranda words mercenary instruments of foreign corruption so let me get our callers involved and lots more to talk about I know many of you have questions for the congresswoman and if you do we try to get your questions on the air here but right now we're talking about what you've been hearing on our air certainly the trial is going on in Washington of president trump first colors John John you're on the air good morning morning John thank you Michael for my for your hypothetical use I want to go skating even if he's going to get out of this thing is so it's gonna lose his favor how is it going to affect the election additionally I thought of all the cereals the knowledge that we kind of a man trump was what was expected you know the the voters positively what I am hearing just the opposite on on on talk radio lots of people wondering about that I don't know if you have two leaves Congress woman but you want to give us your thoughts well thank you for the question John actually the answer is we don't now I think that number one that not only is the president on trial I think the United States Senate is on trial as well we do know however the seventy percent American people suppose we want what we do know that we did now that American people I believe are very sensible and as you said to over seventy percent believe that witnesses should be allowed to be part of the trial and that documentation should be allowed as well ultimately the American people will be the the jurors in this case and that is at the ballot box and that is so this year twenty twenty in November course California's primary has been moved back March third and I don't know how many people know this but everyone has the opportunity up to I believe February eighteenth too low register to vote to drop off their ballots to mail the man so so jurors out there exercise that magnificent manifestation of our democracy and like this to vote that idea of citizen jurors sent thank John for his call go right back to another choleric you're on the air good morning good morning thank you congresswoman hi or morning I'm the co author of the California consumer privacy act of twenty eighteen and I really applaud your efforts to create strong privacy legislation in Congress my question for you is what is your view on federal preemption of all the hard work that has been done in the legislature in California to create the strongest privacy protection law in the world I'll be honest or worry is that the Congress might create legislation three amps what is being done in California to protect Californians privacy rights in a more weeks away then we done out here hello tell me what your opinion would be on federal action in privacy and whether that would pre empt a very strong law that we passed out here in California well thank you for your question it's an excellent one congresswoman Lofgren and myself both representing Silicon Valley spent all of last year eleven months working hard

California and, Noel king in Washington DC good morning what exactly was the, nature of. A meeting between Donald Trump junior and. A Russian operative at, Trump, Tower in, two thousand sixteen the White House I said that meeting was about. Adoption policy but the president has described it in other. Ways and then yesterday he tweeted quote. This was a meeting to get information on An opponent he said in that same tweet that it was legal but he also. Said, that he knew nothing about it the president's, also been tweeting about his former, campaign, chairman Paul Manafort Manafort is back. In federal. Court this week he's on trial for Bank and tax fraud, his trial comes out of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference Chuck Rosenberg. Is on the line with me now he's, a former federal federal prosecutor he worked in the. Eastern district of Virginia where manafort's, trial is taking place Mr. Rosenberg good morning Good morning well all right so. This isn't the first time that the, president has acknowledged that this meeting. Was affected Lee an attempt to get dirt. On Hillary Clinton President Trump of course. Was not at that meeting why do you think that President Trump is bringing. This back, up now See'ums mightily concerned about it and perhaps with good reason if, you look at the indictment that the Muller team lodged against the Russian military officials. From the GRU we know that in, March and April of two thousand sixteen so prior to the meeting and Trump Tower the g. are you already started to hack into the emails of, the Clinton campaign the Democratic National Committee and the, democratic congressional campaign, committee fast forward to that meeting I. Think, the operative question Noel is what did the US persons Trump, junior Manafort and others attending that. Meeting know, about what the Russians had already done and did? They joined. That, conspiracy even. After it began with the president has said said on Twitter that this meeting was quote totally, legal also though made an attempt or made. An effort, to to, say I didn't know anything. About it I mean could this particular meeting cause legal trouble for president Trump Quite. Possibly it certainly seems like it could cause legal trouble for the Americans who attended the meeting at the very least meeting with a. Hostile foreign power with the Russians should trigger counter intelligence concerns among any sort of savvy political. Person first thing you do is pick up the phone and call the. FBI they don't seem to have done that could cause legal trouble for the president quite possibly as. Well particularly if having heard about the meeting getting the readout from his son about what happened at the, meeting he tries to cover up the intent of the. Meaning he tells false stories about what the meeting was, four and as we know dictates a statement on Air. Force One, concealing the purpose of the. Meeting that's an obstruction of, Justice quite, possibly and it could land the president and others around him and quite a bit of. Trouble let's talk about one person who formerly was around the president who is potentially in quite a bit of trouble palm Manafort since we last talked to you the trial started the government is laid out some pretty powerful evidence for. The jury do you think prosecutors are in a strong position heading into week two or how. Would you characterize your position no I think that's exactly right I think. It's a strong physician and here's why these cases paper intensive document cases tax fraud and Bank fraud. Tender run according to script there's somewhat formulaic the government introduces income they introduce expenditures they put on accountants, to show that the accountants didn't know that Mr. Manafort. For instance had foreign Bank accounts or that he was, concealing income and then unwittingly these accountants help them prepare. Tax returns, that he files with the. IRS which understated income and, omit the, fact that he has control over these foreign Bank accounts all of that is formulaic and. All of that is precisely what's happening in a courtroom in the eastern district of Virginia manafort's case are testifying to These things yeah That's exactly right and so what I expect you'll see in the coming week is a little bit more. Of the same there'll be some summary witnesses from the FBI who will total up the amount of money in the Bank accounts and ultimately will tie those accounts to Mr. Manafort directly will show that he committed income from his. Income tax returns then I expect we'll hear. From, Mr., gates well. Yeah that is that is that is the big, question? This week right manafort's Paul, manafort's longtime deputy Rick gates expected to. Take the stand how does he fit into the? Prosecution, strategy here well criminals tend to. Run with criminals so Mr. gates. Isn't admitted criminal Mr. Manafort is. An accused criminal it shouldn't surprise the jury very much that these two guys plotted together conspired did much of the same thing tax fraud and Bank fraud to fat in. Their own waltz I think the government will put Mr. gates, on the stand they'll they'll have him. Admit To all his wrongdoing that's fairly typical to and then they'll take him step by step through. The indictment having him explain each of the. Things, that, he and. Mr. Manafort did together to cheat the IRS and, to? Fraud banks and just briefly, how do you see Mr. manafort's defense. Lawyers countering the government's case what's your strategy here? Well, they're gonna try and do two. Things one they'll try and say. That Mr. Manafort lack the intent. To defraud the IRS or the bank's perhaps if his income tax returns understated income they'll say it was an accident because he was a very busy man and second I. Think they'll try to pin as much of this on Mr., gates as they possibly can The real one at fault took Rosenberg, was a federal prosecutor in the eastern district of Virginia thanks so much Israel passed a law last month that continues to cause controversy the, nation state law defines Israel? As the, nation state of the Jewish, people critics say this? Law, discriminates against religious minorities like Muslims and. Christians. Who make up about a fifth of the Israeli population as NPR's Daniel estrin reports from Tel Aviv this law is sparking protests, from religious, group that's one of Israel's staunchest supporters the Druze religious minority in Israel. Held an, unprecedented protests this weekend thousands gathered in Tel Aviv's main square chanting the Hebrew word for quality She The you are religious group and shoot of, Islam their ethnic.
