"Good morning, playbook, I'm Mike de bonus. It's Monday, April 3rd. So the big thing today, I'm totally obsessed with. Obviously tomorrow, Donald Trump is expected to present himself in Manhattan to face charges from district attorney Alvin Bragg on the hush money allegations dating back to 2016. And Tuesday is the big day. We still have another day, but we at playbook are already planning on how to capture this, this really incredible moment in political history, where the big question is, what is the scene tomorrow in New York going to look like? Are we going to have big protests? Is it just going to be just sort of this media circus? Or is it potentially going to be something much more sinister where potentially you have protesters showing up shouting at each other or potentially even worse? The other thing we're looking at is, you know, we've had lots of commentary since the news broke on Thursday that this indictment was forthcoming. And we've had lots of commentary about what it will mean and what it means for Trump, what it means for Alvin Bragg, what it means for the 2024 presidential race. What we haven't seen are the actual charges that the grand jury has brought and we are standing by waiting to see what the DA will show in terms of evidence and we're ready to really dig in to these documents once they hit the court docket. The other thing we have our eyes on is the dut limit, there hasn't been a lot of outward progress on the issue over the past few weeks, but our Congress team has come up with a really interesting peak at what's going on behind the curtain, and we have a lot of shore are Congress queen bee on the line to take us through it. I love it. The Congress Queen as it were, ilana, how are you? I'm good. I'm passing a car alarm in my neighborhood, but excited to talk to you as always. It could be worse, car alarm, you know, that other things you could be hearing. Exactly. It's now April. We're now potentially as little as a month or two from the infamous X state when the debt limit is going to hit. And the last few weeks we've just had this sort of like posturing and not much actual action between President Biden, Democrats and Republicans on Capitol Hill. Tell me what your team has been scouring up about what's going on behind the scenes. Well, Sarah farris, who I call the centrist whisperer because she's really close with the problem solvers caucus. And to explain who they are, they're the center of both parties. About four dozen members Republicans and Democrats who fancy themselves, the ultimate dealmakers, the guys who step in at the last minute to solve the leadership's problems. So Sarah hears from members of this group that they are already starting their own back channel talks on a plan B to the debt crisis, but they are getting low key signals, but big butt, right? They're getting low key signals that The White House wants them to pipe down. And the reason for that is, Democrats feel like they finally have an upper hand here because Republicans keep kicking the can down the road on their own budget. And the longer they delay, the more the president can can out there can get out there and say, hey, I don't want to talk to these guys until they actually tell me what they want to cut. So the problem solvers and their attempt at a plan B are just distracting everything in the minds of senior Democrats and potentially putting The White House on the back foot when they want it to be on the front foot. Nobody wants to cut a deal with Republicans now. They want to keep Republicans squirming for a few more months and maybe do that in what? Jewish. And to review, like for the past few weeks, it's been very clear that Republicans have very little in terms of a concrete plan to put forward a unified proposal. You've had basically Kevin McCarthy and the chairman of the budget committee, Jody arrington kind of like disagreeing in public about when and what they are actually going to produce. And if you're a Democrat, you're pretty pleased to watch this play out in public, right? Absolutely. So that's essentially the backstory to why The White House is a little bit peeved about this because it's watching the McCarthy arrington bumbling dynamic, frankly. Over whether and how to release anything and saying, don't talk about man B, a back channel. We don't need that yet. Let's just keep exploiting this situation. But that's not what Josh gottheimer and Brian Fitzpatrick have taken from this. They're like, how can we insert ourselves into a vacuum and I'm going to say get some attention, but at least try to find a role for ourselves, which is exactly. And those two guys for our listeners who don't know. God hi Martin, Fitzpatrick, or the two leaders of the problem solver copies. So they're going to be in the center of whatever plan, be may or may not come to fruition. So yeah, so in the midst of all this sort of like for lack of a better term show about nothing when it comes to the debt limit, there actually is some things happening and the political Congress crew has surfaced it and it's really fascinating stuff. And now for your schedule today on the hill. So the House and the Senate are out for the next two weeks, actually. So Alana, what are you watching today and really for the next week or so? Well, we just snooze in, like, shown by the pool. Hardly, I mean, we never do that at the Congress team. We are taking a little bit of a breather and the main reason for that being is there's no signs of any imminent meeting on the jag or any of these big issues. We will, of course, be watching for anything that may or may not get scheduled. But for now, it is kind of snoot slash wait and see. Right. And remember, this is not a recess, ilana. It is a district work period. It's a yes, of course, Mike. These guys are working. Just not in Washington. Of course, we're always working. So don't worry about us. Thanks Alana. Thank you. I'm playbook editor,.

"Presented by Amazon. Their playbooks, a couple things were watching on Tuesday, January 24th. House speaker Kevin McCarthy issued the new GOP roster for the House rules committee on Monday. And he made good on his pledges to give his conferences hard right, a foothold on the powerful panel, naming representatives Thomas massie, Ralph Norman, and chip Roy to the powerful gatekeeping panel. Norman and Roy were among the group, initially opposing McCarthy speaker bid. And Massey is, how do you put it? A real pain in leadership's ass. Politicos, Jordan Carney, and Kelly Tully McManus, have a story up in today's playbook on why this all matters. McCarthy's decision will give the house GOP's right Flank the ability to put their stamp on everything from what bill's advance to the full chamber to the structure of floor debates and amendments. And they're much less likely to go along with leadership. Importantly, if Roy, Norman, or Massey, hang together, they can effectively block legislation, including bills that McCarthy supports from getting to the floor as minority party members usually vote no on the 9 to four split panel. And The White House doesn't seem to be in a rush to grant congressional Republicans access to information regarding the classified documents that were found in Biden's personal residences. White House counsel's steward Delaware told House Republicans that his office is reviewing GOP requests. Andrew restuccia from The Wall Street Journal reports, while making clear that it would protect the integrity and independence of law enforcement investigations. Politicas, Marianne Levine, and Burgess ever report that Senate Democrats are wincing at Biden's handling and classified documents. Even as they seek to draw a distinction between the incumbent president and former president Donald Trump. Said senator Joe Manchin, it couldn't get any worse. And you might want to know the name bob Bauer. He's the man behind Biden's classified document strategy. As Jeremy diamond, Phil Mattingly, Kevin Lipton, and Evan Perez write for CNN, bower has developed a knack for telling powerful people, things they need, but don't necessarily want to hear multiple former colleagues said. Part of it lies in his matter of fact delivery. They said, the rest comes down to what several described as an unflappable demeanor, even amid spiraling crises. Politicos, Ali Munich, and Sarah Ferris have an exclusive report into this playbook on the rift that is splitting the influential blue coalition nearly in half. That's following an internal dispute. Over whether to rebrand the moderate democratic group. 7 of the 15 members, including representatives Abigail spanberger and Mikey Sheryl, are on their way out, which will leave the group with only men as its members and the smallest roster in decades. Senior congressional reporter Sarah Ferris is here to talk about it. Sarah, how's it going? How are you doing? Yeah, it's going well. Thanks for having me. So what have you been hearing when it comes to the blue dot coalition? So basically what happened was over the last couple of weeks there were discussions of, hey, you know, maybe we should be looking to increase our ranks in the democratic caucus. Maybe we should try to be recruiting more members. And as those recruiting conversations were happening, it became clear to some of the members of there's kind of an image problem here. There's members who optically don't want to join our group. What should we do about that? And not everyone agreed, but there was a conversation. There was actually a vote on whether to change the name. The vote fails and many of those who had thought the changes decided not to join the group this year. So yeah, it's been an interesting couple of weeks for this group. It's a pretty influential group over the years. And I think it still will be for the next two years and this tight majority. It's been interesting to watch. It's worth noting too that the blue coalition is kind of considered the moderate of the moderate Democrats. They position themselves as kind of a centrist group that when it comes to bipartisan legislation or negotiations, they're kind of right there in the middle. That's right. A lot of them, when you talk to them, they do not love the word moderate. They don't love the word centrists, but that's kind of the parlance that we use to describe these Democrats who are willing to compromise with the other side. They're willing to stand up and say, our federal deficit is too high. They're willing to stand up and say, we need to prioritize national security. Those are the two principles that the blue dogs have always revolved around is fiscal responsibility, national security, that we don't expect to be changing. We think that that's part of the group's decision that they'll be continuing on that front. But yes, they are, they are more moderate compared to their democratic colleagues and that's typically how we describe them here even if they will not love that label back home. So where do you see this going? You know, we know that the house has a thin Republican majority. This would be the kind of group traditionally willing to play ball on negotiations. Tell me if I'm wrong, but to me the signals that, you know, maybe that moderate centrist influence is waning. Yeah, there's definitely going to be a lot of talk about, oh, the bark of the blue dogs is quieting to borrow a pun that we did not include in the story. But yes, the numbers are going to be smaller. There were right now there's 7 Democrats who will be in this group in the last Congress. There were 19, the Congress before that, 26. So this is a much smaller number. But when you look at the 118th Congress, there is such a small margin that any group that is willing to vote with Republicans that has more than four members is going to be important. The blue dog coalition is a group that's willing to work across the aisle. They're willing to go against their own leadership at times. And that means that they will have a voice that will still matter in this Congress. And so whether it's 8 members, whether it's four members, whether it's 30 members as some in this coalition, wanted to see. They're going to be influential if they decide to be. And if they decide to stick together. Sarah farris, she's Politico's senior congressional reporter. Thanks for coming on. Thanks for having me. Here's what's up in Washington today, starting with The White House at 3 p.m. eastern. President Joe Biden and vice president Kamala Harris will host democratic congressional leaders at The White House.

"That Sarah farris from Politico and from PBS NewsHour Lisa Desjardins thank you both for speaking with us Thanks for having us Mostly cloudy skies in Atlanta 55° our time is four 44 I'm Jim barris Thanks for listening Governor Brian Kemp is about to turn up the heat on efforts to make it legal for gun owners to carry firearms without a permit known as constitutional carry Can voice his support for the legislative shift during a campaign event today at a cod county gun store W AE's Lisa Hagan is with us for some context about the announcement Lisa explained for us what is constitutional carry Constitutional care is sort of the branded way of talking about getting rid of the requirements for a gun permit to carry concealed in the state So in Georgia we've long had very broad rights with a gun permit to you know you can take your gun into church bars all over the place really And that was all done through the permitting system What this does is essentially frame the constitution of the United States itself the Second Amendment as being a blanket gun permit for everyone So there's no longer any kind of requirements that the government know anything about who is carrying a gun in the state This would not absolve say someone from if they had a felony on their record for example that had not been expunged this would not give them free reign to carry a firearm Correct No absolutely not This is for people who are able to legally own guns only However there's really no way for law enforcement to check on that because you're not allowed to ask currently if someone has a gun permit And in this case there wouldn't be any need to ask for a permit ever This has been a bill some gun rights activists have been pushing for unsuccessfully for years now quite today Why are we hearing about this now I think it has a great deal to do with the elections And the challenge governor camp is facing from David perdue When Kemp originally ran for governor he signaled his support for constitutional carry fairly quietly And he's waited till now to actually run a big presser and make this large announcement So it should really signal a step further to the right than Georgia achieved even with the infamous gun everywhere bill signed in the law in 2014 Georgia would become the 22nd state as I understand to pass a constitutional carry style law Talk about how this is gaining momentum across the nation Yeah this has been a movement sweeping the country for the last decade or so And it is further to the right of the NRA and it was interesting we saw governor Kemp thank the NRA for their support on this But they've actually had very little to do with this wave of pushing constitutional carry and getting rid of the permitting requirements for guns in many many states What has been behind it is a particular set of gun rights activists who work very closely also with anti vax activists and anti abortion rights to name a few This is what I spent the last two years investigating Will this come through clean As some people might say or are we likely to see amendments and riders and this morph into something else It'll depend on what kind of pressure probably we hear from David perdue and this particular set of gun rights activists that I mentioned Whatever it does end up with though it's fairly likely to pass with the governor's support WA bee's Lisa Hagen Lisa thank you so much for breaking this down for us We appreciate it Thank you Jim And.

"They argue democrats. Shouldn't be spending three point five trillion dollars on a reconciliation baggage atop of a two trillion dollar pandemic package and another one trillion on infrastructure. They don't want to be seen as enabling debut as an irresponsible spending spree when the nation's debt is already massive republicans also argue that democrats easily have the power to act on this alone and if they choose not to well. It's their own fault. Senator roy blunt had this to say it's easy for them to deal with it. If they want to senator mitt. Romney agreed the report is the democrats are quote the ones that massively adding to the debt. There's no need for a compromise when they can do it by themselves. Here's a question you might be asking at this point. Why when democrats had just use reconciliation. You might have guessed. It's all about the moderates centrist. Democrats are already having a hard time swallowing the three point. Five trillion dollar price tag of reconciliation and democrats involve. Tell us that adding debt ceiling increase would only lead those centrists to demand a slimmer package. Here's the bottom line. Each side is confident.

Twitter isn't real life in office biden and bernie haven't been very far apart on policy but the old electoral divisions have repeatedly resurfaced in campaigns. This year and lately we've been having a familiar conversation with folks in the biden world. There take the gap between the political twitter. Verse and the real world is as wide as ever chantal brown. The winner of these special election primary ohio on tuesday had some twenty thousand twitter followers before her election. Win while her bernie back opponent. Nina turner had almost half a million. And this wasn't a one off election. The progressive wing of the democratic party has now lost louisiana special election for her house seat. Virginia gubernatorial primary. The new york city mayoral primary and this week's special election in ohio. The progressive candidates actually outspent the biden.

"Is weird Nose over the bazaar, Stop a car thief. Who discovered a toddler in the back seat of the SUV that he stole. Drives back to the child's mom and threatens to call the cops on her on the mother for leaving the kid in the car. Now that is bizarre. She stopped off in a grocery store in Beaverton, Oregon. Left her four year old son in her unlocked SUV with the engine running. You know what? I am going to call her out on that? I mean, come on, right, Brett, I can't tell you how many stories we done. Of parents making that split second decision and leaving the kid in the cars and the cards. You don't even lock the car unlocked car engine running. It's an advertisement for us these look at me still me. I mean that Is outrageous, especially wrong car when the weather's colder and you can see the exhaust, it said, like an extra added right and I'm sure that's why she left the engine on because it's cold. And you're worried if you leave the kid in the car, it's gonna get cold in there. Of course, if you're only gonna be in there for a minute or two, how cold could get so you knew already that you were gonna be in there for a longer period of time. S so anyway, but that's so we all agree, including the guy who stole the car that the mother should be reprimanded. But you don't expect the reprimand from the guy who stole the car. The thief returned to the grocery store yelled at the mother, just as we have done on this show and threatened to call the cops. Then he ordered the woman to take her son out of the back seat. Then he sped away in the stolen SUV. Well, I love a good caper. Yeah, very nice. And he had time to double back and yell at the mother. I'm kind of impressed, actually. Yeah. Hey, abandon the SUV for those of you Who are you know? Following the crime. He's he's a multi tasker. That's for sure is that the there's a French woman. Who is now spending her third year, I think, Actually, she spent three years so this is your fourth year. Trying to prove that she is not dead. Yes, This is bizarre. She's 58 years old. She lives nearly on And in the eyes of France's administration since 2017 She is not Legally. Alive. She's not existed. She doesn't exist in the system. She had a long running legal dispute involving a former employee at her cleaning company. I went to see a lawyer who told me it would be quickly resolved as I've been doing by Dr have certified that I was very much still alive, but because there's been a ruling a legal ruling Go into the doctor wasn't enough. It's a crazy story, says her attorney. I couldn't believe it. I never thought that a judge would declare someone dead without a certificate. But the plaintiff claimed That she was dead. Mrs. Bush on And nobody checked. Oh, my gosh. So because of that court ruling, and again, nobody checking She is legally dead. So now she has begun this appeal and there are damages and she wants damages. Um Isn't it right? I think the well without getting too much in the weeds, all posted to my twitter feed.

Come see the dead woman. Speak. Yeah, um Well, there you go. Instagram influencers in Indonesia. Are among the first to get the covert 19 vaccine.

But the effort seemed to backfire when one of the celebrities were spotted partying hours after getting the injection. You cannot count on those instagram influencers, but you want them at the head of the line because that indicates the others. It's just as they're termed influencers. It influences others to do it, so it makes a cool Yeah. Don't be afraid of vaccines. The 33 year old celebrity who was one of them They're in Indonesia. Um, a TV personality named Rafi Ahmad.
