Democrats Would Rather Pass 'Build Back Better' Bill Than Retain Power
"Now the build back better act has been the bill that you've probably heard bits and pieces discussed for the last couple of weeks and months. The build back better act is one of the largest spending bills an American history. The build back better act is so important to the current Democrat regime that they have decided to make the following bargain. They would rather lose power. And get this bill passed. Their poll numbers are historically low. The popularity for Democrats hasn't been this low in 30 or 40 years. Yet the question that is frustrating and confusing and confounding. So many normal Americans is why don't they care? You see I've had that same question. We've wrestled with that together here on this program. And then this morning I got up, and I asked our team, producer Connor and producer Andrew Andrew did a great job feeling yesterday. I said, what's actually in this bill? Send me the details. Send me the information. And as I got to actually reading, what is in this bill? I have now come to the realization. As to why Pelosi and Schumer are comfortable, satisfied and content with losing power if this bill goes into

How Truck Driver Ed Durr Defeated New Jersey's Most Powerful Lawmaker
"When I saw the story. Did anyone watch the live stream last night that I was doing? I don't think I've laughed that hard my entire life. When I just saw this, I was flipping through social media and I couldn't control myself when I saw this story of this truck driver from southern New Jersey who spent a 153 total dollars on his campaign. $153. And as of right now, the election is about to be called in certified. He's about to beat the second most powerful person in New Jersey, the head of the Senate presidency in New Jersey by 2000 votes, right? And so and by the way, this is not even about Republican or Democrat. It's not about any of that, right? It's about wait a second time out. Like, what? And so I did some digging into this, right? I was like, okay, who is this guy, right? Is he a son of Jeff Bezos or like, you know, is he part of the Rockefeller family or was he born with some sort of birthright and so you look at this guy and his name is Durer, right? And yeah, you could laugh at the name, whatever, but you look into it. It's like if you were to have central casting of like what the normal American was. Now, some of you guys might not remember the 2000 was it 16 or 2012 president presidential debates of that guy that wore that like red sweater? Do you remember that? Then bone, right? Thank you. Guys, remember that, maybe not as before your time. It's like, I just want to give that guy a hug, right? He's just wants what's right for the world. So few people like that anymore. It seems in public life. And so this guy Eddie decides to do the ultimate David and Goliath type exercise. Now, I don't know how I'm gonna do my best to describe this to you. The guy he was running against is the head of the Senate of New Jersey, okay? It's untouchable. An example would be like if a random candidate decided to run up against Chuck Schumer, okay? That's just or a random candidate would just be like, I'm gonna run against Nancy Pelosi. This guy runs the state of New Jersey. Now, he was to give an idea, he's been an elected office since 2004. Some of you were born in 2004, okay? I know I know that because I actually just talked to someone that was literally born in 2006, not even born. And so this guy has run the state of New Jersey. He runs the entire political apparatus and machine. And so when you start to look into it, you're like, all right, how did this guy make it happen? So you look at his campaign receipts are like, did he get a big contribution from the pharmaceutical companies? Spend a $153, $85 of which was spent at Dunkin Donuts. And the remaining $70 was spent on flyers and materials and so they said, what was your grand strategy? He's like, I just kind of showed up and asked people for their vote. And so he was conducted in an interview last night. The first thing he said is like, I have no idea what's going on, right? The first thing he says, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn express last night, but no, I'm kidding. But all of a sudden you read deeper into this and this is an important thing is he ran because he was so disgusted and he was so upset that he is a truck driver continually kept this economy opening and keep going and he just felt continually insulted by the people in charge.
Tuesday's Elections Are a 'Sonic Boom' Wake-up Call for Democrats
"First, I want to display a little bit of just the collapse. I want to just play a little bit of the video of the collapse of the Democrat regime in real time. I want to go to 56 and 57 in order, let's play cut 56 a little bit about the Virginia election results play cut 56. This is not going to go Republican. And this is a state that has not had a statewide Republican since 2009 about McDonald's governor at the Senate level at the gubernatorial level. The state was bright blue. Right. Yesterday. And now that's a next January state is going to be almost entirely in control of Republicans. And that's, you know, that's a bloodbath. And a state that Democrats are dominated, dominated for the past decade. And Republicans have taken control of the Virginia House of delegates 51 49 that no one saw coming. Cut 57, John Carl from ABC says this is a sonic boom of a wake-up call for Democrats, but they won't heed the wake-up call instead, you have Pelosi and Schumer say, oh, this is why we need to go spend these trillions of dollars we don't have on programs that are unpopular. Honestly, Democrats, I hope you guys try to implement CRT in every single school district across the country, not because it's good for the country, super damaging, but voters hate it so much that it's the greatest political gift to conservatives you could imagine. Play cut 57. George, this is a sonic boom of a wake-up call for Democrats. Biden won Virginia by ten points just a year ago. He won New Jersey by 16 points. And the big factor is the one you mentioned, Republicans vastly outperformed in the suburbs. That is precisely where the battle for control of Congress will be waged next year in the midterm election. And so all across the country, you are seeing this trend.
Arizona AG Mark Brnovich Responds to Potential of Biden Paying Illegal Aliens
"So yesterday a story broke that this administration is negotiating with the ACLU to provide over $400,000 to every parent and or child that had been separated for a period of time during the Trump administration up to a $1 million of family And mister attorney general they're separated because we don't know if those are their parents We don't know if these are sex traffickers People coming across the border voluntarily We're not dragging them across the border This is an inside job isn't it Where the Biden administration's cutting a deal with the ACLU to transfer hundreds of millions of dollars It is once again I am losing words to describe this This has gone from a crisis to a catastrophe Literally think about this He is going to give a legal immigrants more money than the 9 11 victims got in our country More than even some people's families that have been killed in combat defending the flag and fighting for freedom It is unspeakable and once again this is the incentivization and monetization of people crossing our border illegally And I think most of your listeners know that there have been there are people that literally the cartels rent kids or kids that come across the border multiple times and it shame on people that put themselves or their children in that situation and then expect the federal government to subsidize not only their illegal behavior but this recklessness And so all it's going to do is encourage more people to break the law and encourage more families to put in the situation and it's just really unethical for the Biden administration to basically be providing people that have entered our country illegally more money than 9 11 victims or service personnel families have been gotten I don't know how Biden or cartel Kelly Chuck Schumer how these people sleep with themselves

Secret Joe Manchin ‘Agreement’ With Chuck Schumer Leaves Democrats Scrambling
"I was unaware of the mansion letter to Schumer, and you report that House Democrats were too. Would you tell us what that letter was and why I didn't know about it and White House Democrats are upset about it? Well, a couple. This has been out for a while actually political did break the letter story a long time ago. Joe Manchin and Chuck Schumer had a kind of secret agreement so to speak basically where Manchin said he would only spend the 1.5 trillion of the reconciliation bill. Here's what I would fake you. And I think you know this and I think a lot of people are beginning to realize it. A majority is only as strong as its weakest link, right? It's most conservative or most liberal member. And Joe Manchin is the linchpin for everything Democrats want. And so people can demonize him, which is fine. You're allowed to have a you're allowed to have one is allowed to have opinions about lawmakers. But anything they want to get done has to go through Joe Manchin and that's just something they need to become more and more comfortable with. So there is a trillion and a half dollar cap. It's called the mansion cap. Now I miss the letter, I missed the whole story. I knew that Joe Manchin has always been upset with the idea of three and a half trillion, but he voted to advance it. So I thought, so I missed the entire story. I read about it in punch bowl. Why did they not just from the beginning, deal with it? If Joel, if you got 50 votes and 50 against you, you've got to have match and mansion says a 1 trillion 5 and then cinema underneath that cap has her own demands as to every other Democrat in the Senate. They should have been I agree. I thought it was crazy for them to vote for three and a half $1 trillion budget. Not because it was three and a half trillion, but because they never were going to three and a half trillion. So I don't know why they got themselves all ends up for that. But the left wanted 6 trillion or 10 trillion. So, you know, that's kind of the reality they were facing. And now they have to deal with that. They have to deal with the fallout from that.

"Gonna take back america. We're going to have to take back. America because the democrats are leading us into the under the brink of ruin. People were aggravated that. I didn't go after mitch. Mcconnell and this debt ceiling debate. I have i admitted i have no stomach for in in party fighting right now. The stakes are too high. I don't think most people are sitting around fretting about temporarily extending the debt ceiling. I don't i think people are worried about losing their fundamental constitutional american god given rights. I think americans see this country on Heading to the absolute brink of ruin and the stakes are high and we have. We have no.

Why McConnell Helped Schumer Increase Debt Limit
"Jake. It's here. i was about to slander. You betcha they wrote punchbowl news last night and took the day off. 'cause the feds rob welcome back by now no i. My phone was on silence. I apologize not problem. Date chairman of punchbowl. Get your punchbowl news at punchbowl news dot com check last hour. I played chuck schumer speech. You wrote your assessment of the binding legislative agenda. Did you take into account the impact of the shimmer speech which brosseau told maria barham yesterday has deeply soured the republican caucus. I mean to the point. They don't want to talk to the guy. yeah. I actually don't. They didn't talk much to anyway. I don't find that big. I don't find it to be this positive. I've been through a lot of michael's where speeches what we're supposed to ruin relationships. The fact is the reality is. There's not much cooperation that we anticipate anyway. I think the conventional wisdom is wrong on the democratic side. I think that because mcconnell blinked and this lasts debt limit fight he makes it less likely appoint again And i think that i just i. I don't think the speeches what did it. I mean it's not like we were in a golden era for cooperation. What did you make joe mansion face in his hands and then leaving. We reported at the time that he He used next live instead. It was. I read batting. Yeah i can't remember exactly what it was I think listen. I think i am the cynic here is you know hugh i think. Being against schumer is beneficial for him. But i do think. Joe manchin owns chuck schumer in a way In the sense that he can't get anything done. Schumer can't without joe mansion so You know what mansion said In in many respects was right that if you want to have more progressive agenda you don't have to worry about joe manchin so like progressives to the senate you know and i think that's the reality of it now. Can i explain to you. My theory of what happened last week. I think mitch mcconnell one. Even though people think he lost. I think he intended people think he lost so that he could win. In december he could not allow the debt crisis right now so he waited and waited and waited extended it till december and he will allow it in december. Couldn't allow it now. It might have the reconciliation going to a higher number now. The democrats have to work out their reconciliation and if they do they're going to have passed trillions of dollars in spending and they're gonna have to borrow for it to reconciliation to get your take ship sherman. I don't think that yeah i mean. Listen i i think that he. I don't think that he won or lost. I think this was kind of a stupid fight with an. It's now it was a stupid deal. That really screws over everyone involved. I mean i agree with you. He couldn't have a he could not afford to have a default And he did. In the only the i guess i would say. He won. Because schumer's main argument against reconciliation and lifting with reconciliation was that he didn't have time that was schumer's made argument yao He can't make that argument. So i i and i hear that I do hear that. There's a lot of anger in the republican conference. Though i mean. We can't underestimate that On what mcconnell. There's no movement to get rid of them that silliness that is coming from whatever wherever trump. We're getting that from. Oh you mean getting rid of mcconnell not not a not a chance

Manchin Blasts Schumer's GOP-Bashing Floor Speech
"Last night mitch. Mcconnell found ten republicans to avert a crisis. But that's not gonna happen in december because chuck schumer immediately went out and did a victory dance on the senate. It wasn't a victim. they punt it. They wanted december so that that everyone now knows the democrats can fix this by themselves. And they're going to have to do it. In december but mitch helped him over the fact that they waited too long and they were going to crash the economy. 'cause chuck schumer doofus. It just doesn't know how to run. The senate mitch's an expert relented last night. They went out and gave him an extra month to get this done.

"Were not representative of the poorer. Their dwellers they were representatives of the party of the wealthy and the rural dwellers republicans in the house and the senate pushed the country towards the gravest fiscal crisis in history. They refused raise the debt ceiling until forty eight hours after the treasury department exhausted his legal right to borrow risking a default that would have capsized credit markets. This is Somewhat revisionist by david fromm because what the republicans actually did by refusing to raise the debt ceiling would have forced the treasury department to prioritize debt payment. Over everything else. They still could have paid the debt service. they just couldn't have done anything else. And it was a negotiating tactic that worked to bring about sequestration. That was the first time the government had an very longtime actually cut the budget. He leaves all of that out. But what's interesting here is is he's willfully dismissing the fact that if you allow the majority to have its way in this country they would be wiping out student. Loan debt their obligations. They would be wiping that out. They would be imposing confiscatory taxation on those who have succeeded in the united states to give to those who had not. What's so interesting. Here is that He makes this case at the beginning. that to protect property from the people and ultimately the people from themselves the founders erected a necessary fence against impetuous councils The system of government has changed over time but the mistrust of property majorities especially urban on property. Majorities persists elo. Did we not see people. Burning down america the summer did we not see people burning down america the summer and the press and the democrats sympathetic to him. Did we not see the riots. in the summer. Have we not seen the people in the democratic coalition demanding. The repudiation of legally injured contracts for student loan debts. We don't see all this stuff this. This is a an absurd fantasy by david fromm. That's not to excuse people in the minority but it certainly is man You've got to be completely out to lunch and not pay attention to what's going on with a great many people in urban settings in this country to re david frum and think he's captured reality and you should actually understand that the genius of the founders is proven through this piece. It's ridiculous essentially. What david frum is upset about is all of the progressive. Movement's he wants cannot become policy so long as a minority in this country is powerful enough still to say no and that's kind of what the founders understood that david frum does not of course he's canadian. It's that in this country if there is given it systems given that the states are semi sovereign entities that a allow a large minority means. That you should move slowly. You should not once you become the majority take all you should move slowly when a minority is reduced to nothing then you have the ability in licensed to advance quickly so if the democrats could get to sixty in the senate. They could advance whatever they wanted to do. And the republicans couldn't stop but they can't do that. Essentially what david fromm is lashing out at is an inability frustrating ability for democrats to be able to persuade enough people that are right and we're going to hear more of this from the democrats that they haven't persuaded enough people that they're right and so now they want to break down the institutions and the rules that block them from doing whatever they want..

What do you think that humor in the democratic house managers are telling a constituent that may confront them as to why they didn't call witnesses but for me is the real answer. I won't the answer. They're given out in your opinion. But what if. I through those people in a room with truth and shot him up full of truth serum what is the real answer they did not call witnesses compared to what they're telling their constituents in that thank you. Yeah absolutely Okay so what. They're telling their constituents is that they needed to move on and that they decided that there was no way to persuade I think the real answer is that in part That yes they do want to move on and they would get bogged down and it would drag out i do think there's some legitimacy to that. But i actually think that the real answer is that if they had witnesses and the republicans were allowed to have witnesses well that it would become more complex that aid the the president clearly did in i listen i know some of you disagree with this but the president clearly did tell the crowd to march to the capitol. He did that in a speech. Those are his words to walk up to the capital. He wanted them in his speech to be peaceful but walk up to the capital. There is evidence that the cunanan browde boy people were planning this in advance and there would be tough questions for Whether or not the Whether or not the capitol police were told to down whether not members of the capitol police collaborated whether or not members of congress collaborated. There would be tough questions that could potentially undermine the whole institution and so they chose to move on..

"But in the senate the senate has revealed itself with the democrats To still be run by mitch. Mcconnell and for the gop particularly as the democrats are rattling about gun control in the light. That's a good thing. We still got protections of the senate it. Is eric erickson here. The number is eight. Seven seven nine seven eric. Eight seven seven nine seven three seven four to five. Glad to have you with me. Let's go to the phones all the way down to valdosta the a welcome. Hey how derek. Good listen i have a quick question for you. How can mitch. Mcconnell thinks that doing away with trump and his voters is going to win anything in two thousand. Twenty two does I realized that. The media's is it that way and i think that mitch mcconnell himself doesn't like donald trump But i also think that mitch mcconnell realizes he the gop survive without trump's voters and he's got to figure out what navigate that i i if anything i think he's he's thinking is happening in real time if that makes any sense yeah it does. Well i don't understand how a lot of these republicans especially some of the never trump Po like liz. Cheney that kind of thing. I don't know or even our lieutenant governor dunkin who goes on cnn but doesn't speak to conservatives down here thinks that he's going to be able to survive in two thousand only to. I mean can you. Can you elaborate house. What they're thinking. yeah. I i don't know that i don't know that they know I can tell you if i had to speculate. It's this And it is that When they look at their their their interpretation of events if we wanted to look at it from their perspective is this that the republicans had an opportunity to keep the senate in january and preserve donald trump's legacy and you had the vice president president. Come down and say you gotta turn out. You gotta help you got to save the legacy you had. The president's kids do the same and four hundred thousand plus of those voters chose not to for one reason or another and so. I think you're you've got some republicans. I think they're wrong but i do think that you have some republicans who are thinking. We can't depend on trump voters moving forward. They'll only show up if donald trump is on the ballot. So how do we build a new coalition. If if they won't turn out and frankly they need to understand that trump voters will turn out if you give them a reason. I also think that a lot of trump voters have to emphasize the fact that we want to turn out and vote for people other than donald trump and both sides need to. It's almost like they need a marriage counselor to a degree because you got some who think the these guys hate us. And then you've got them thinking. Will they hate us and actually get them together and say listen. We can beat stacey abrams other. Let's find work together and both are going to have to cover. That's my sense of it. Because i do spend a lot of time talking to to a lotta people and i really do think in atlanta with the republicans. Some of them think these guys..

"There's a problem for the gop your shift lake. Moderate republicans as you just heard senator cassidy. There insist that the party is ready to move on from trump. So why isn't that actually happening. Well cassidy it it. It simply has to. We have no choice. We're headed down a demographic cul de sac if we don't if you look at what's happened. Since president trump was elected we lost the white house. We lost the house. We lost the senate. We lost more than four hundred legislative seats nationwide. So there's really no future with trumpism so we've got to move on it's difficult because the Base is still there But we have to move on and then what if you don't what if it just is the trump. Well we'll just continue to lose. Seats will continue to be frankly and a permanent minority if we continue so we have to and we should want to as well. I mean look at what has happened since the last election. The president lost the election. Then used every lever at his disposal to hang onto that To hang onto the white house and we saw what resulted on january. Sixth notice his four hundred seats. That's a clever talking point from jeff flake. Charlie actually put it out to me this morning. Where is this coming from. And i have had to look and it appears that he is recounting four hundred seats lost in the last four years. Not in the last election in the last four years. Four hundred republican seats lost what. He's not counting then are the offsetting pickups this past year so he's not counting the republican gains in two thousand twenty some of which negated the losses in two thousand eighteen. I mean the republicans lost some seats in two thousand eighteen and picked them right back up and twenty twenty. So he's not doing that. And then there are the state. Legislative races The republicans Getting the minnesota state senate republicans securing the complete arizona legislature republicans. Picking up all of new hampshire. They wound up. Not picking up the the state house in alaska. They didn't hold But a lot of they picked up a lot of legislative seats and jeff lakes ignoring those. Here's the problem for all the people in the media bubble about donald trump. If if you're actually about the situation with donald trump if you're actually honest about situation donald trump you have to acknowledge that there are parts of the country where donald trump underperformed other republicans.

"To have you with us. We've got a really really really big exciting show tonight. Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey. Today announced that he is ending his campaign for the Democratic nomination for president there is nobody quite like cory. Booker Senator from New Jersey in. US politics tonight. We're going conjoined. Live here on set by Senator Booker for an exclusive interview about his decision to end his campaign and what this past year has been enlight for him in this roly-poly Topsy Turvy rollercoaster of a Democratic presidential primary. Before we've heard on Senator Booker though tonight we are also going to speak with the leader of the Democrats in the United States. Senate Senator Chuck Schumer is here tonight at a very crucial time house speaker speaker. Nancy Pelosi now confirming that she's going to take one last occasion to consult with all the Democrats in the house as to how they're going to proceed with the articles of impeachment against President Trump and the impeachment process that Democratic Caucus meeting will convene in Washington tomorrow morning at nine am eastern after that last opportunity opportunity for discussion and consultation. Among all of the Democratic members of the House House will then vote on a resolution that will name the impeachment managers who will act as prosecutors the Senate trial of president trump that resolution will also formally convey the impeachment articles over to the United States Senate. Now we have sort of talked about here from the beginning. I've sort of tried to advise here from the beginning that we should all be very humble when it comes to predicting anything about how a presidential impeachment is going to go. There have been very few presidential impeachments. They've all happened in different centuries. They're all very different from one. Another her impeachment is a big enough wadey enough. Frankly scary enough deal that I think we should be humble about talking about how how we're sure it's going to go. I think impeachment is rare enough and strange enough that it should be seen as a little bit of a wild beast so to that end. It's tonight we're GONNA talk with Senator Schumer about what he's planning and what he thinks will happen in terms of the start of this Senate impeachment trial but you know stay humble even just today and into tonight. We've got really interesting new reporting that is totally recalibrating. All The Washington common wisdom as to what we're about to see as president trump's impeachment moves into the Senate for example because Mitch McConnell controls a fifty three seat Republican majority in the Senate from the very very beginning of even the prospects prospects of impeachment people have pontificated that McConnell might just decide to technically convene the Senate impeachment trial but then instantly instantly take a vote to dismiss the articles. Dismiss the charges and that would be it he can just gavel it open and then boom vote gavel. It closed. The trial would be over. The whole thing could be done in five minutes. That prospect has loomed large since it became even remotely possible that President Trump was going to face an impeachment trial before this Senate well take that common wisdom and educated because tonight. CNN is reporting that according to Republican sources there are not enough votes in the US Senate even with that Republican majority. There are not enough votes to pass a motion to dismiss the charges against president trump without moving ahead with at least some version of a trial if that reporting is accurate and if that math is accurate and McConnell does not have the votes to to pass a motion to dismiss while Senator McConnell will have to decide whether he even wants to bother or risk taking that vote which he will. We'll probably lose whether he might just skip that which would be a departure from how they handled it and the Clinton impeachment and he's been saying he wants to follow the same rules that they had during the Clinton impeachment so that's interesting. McConnell might not have the votes to dismiss. McConnell does not believe he has the votes to dismiss. Does he even bother putting dismissal assault on the table then interesting and around the same time the CNN broke that story. CBS News broke a story. That is even more surprising and may mean gene. We're about to have a way more interesting January than you were planning on. CBS News reporting tonight. That the trump White House believes senior officials in the trump White House. Believe that not only does Mitch. McConnell not have the votes to outright dismissed the case against the president in the Senate but at least senior White House officials believe that Democratic leader Chuck Schumer in fact has the votes to insist that the impeachment trial of president trump not only go forward but that include testimony from witnesses quote senior White House officials tell. CBS News they increasingly believe that at least four Republicans and likely more will will vote to call witnesses and remember four is the crucial number. If all forty-seven Democratic senators that they would like to hear witnesses. They only need four four Republicans to join with them to put together a majority vote that would result in there being witnesses at the president's impeachment trial in the Senate and CBS again tonight is reporting adding that there are at least four quote and likely more. At least in the estimation of White House officials who of course are following this closely as if their careers dependent on it it. Because maybe they do so. Mitch McConnell isn't going to be able to gavel open and then gavel shut the impeachment trial immediately and if McConnell Donald is not going to be able to stop witness testimony at the trial and if all of that is about to start imminently because the house tomorrow is preparing to send the articles over to the Senate. Well yes the person I want to talk to about. All of that is Chuck Schumer the top Democrat in the United States Senate. He will join us here. Live Momento but we've before we bring Senator Schumer onboard. We told you is a big show. Before we bring Senator Booker on before we bring Senator Schumer told you it is a a big show. We are going to go to congressman. Adam Schiff the head of the intelligence committee. He of course led the impeachment investigation in the House. And there's a lot to ask him him about but most urgently as of tonight there. Is this really remarkable new reporting in the New York Times and maybe we should have seen this coming. I didn't this is like walk him. To the fifty shades darker remake of the two thousand sixteen Russian election interference Erin suffered to reelect donald trump. Because you can see the headline here from the New York. Times Russian's hacked Ukrainian Gas Company at center of impeachment. Don't quote with President trump facing an impeachment trial over his efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate former vice president Joe Biden and his son hunter. Russian military packers have been boring into the Ukrainian Gas Company at the center of the affair. The hacking attempts against Barista the Ukrainian Gas Company on whose board Hunter Hunter Biden served began in early November as talk of the Biden's Ukraine and impeachment was dominating the news in the United States. It's not yet clear or what the hackers found or precisely what they were searching for but the experts say the timing and scale of the attacks suggest that the Russians could be searching for potentially embarrassing material Dariel on the Biden's the same kind of information that president trump wanted from Ukraine when he pressed for an investigation of the Biden's and Burris MMA which of course set off a chain of events that led to his impeachment. The Russian tactics are strikingly similar to what American intelligence agencies say was Russia's hacking of e mails from Hillary Lori Clinton's campaign chairman and the Democratic National Committee during the two thousand sixteen presidential campaign. It is twenty sixteen reductions. It's even the same units the Gr you the Russian military intelligence hacking units a specialized hacking group named nicknamed Fancy Bear. It's the same units that carried out at the two thousand sixteen attack security researchers describing this attack on Baristas a cookie cutter version of the Twenty Sixteen Russian hacked to hurt Clinton and benefit trump trump. The Russian government hackers used fake websites and spear phishing emails designed to steal user names and passwords. Just like they did targeting the Clinton in campaign and the DNC in two thousand sixteen with those purloined user names and passwords. They apparently were successful. They apparently did get at themselves inside Boras servers to dig up or unleash what who knows. Stay tuned the Iowa caucuses are in three weeks. Six will presumably find out at some convenient time. I mean this is remarkable. You might remember on Friday night. Show we cover this sort of vague but still still alarming report from Bloomberg News Reporter. Chris strohm reporting at Bloomberg on Friday that. US law enforcement and intelligence agencies were investigating some sort sort of effort by Russia to try to target Joe Biden to try to mess with the Biden presidential campaign. Much as Russia messed with Clinton Clinton's campaign. For years ago. We highlighted this report on Friday night. Show saying that. There's not much detail here but it's obviously of concern if US officials law enforcement and intelligence are monitoring are investigating if Russia's targeting Biden. I don't know if this is Bloomberg news was referring to on Friday. They night but this new reporting tonight on the front page of the New York Times says at least that Russian military intelligence hackers are at work perhaps trying to dig up for president president trump's benefit the stuff he wasn't able to leverage out of the government of Ukraine by force. I mean the House has already passed. It's impeachment articles against President Trump. Already but I mean what happens next year. Here's evidence of Russian government hackers potentially trying to deliver for trump the deliverable that he was trying to pry out of Ukraine for which he got impeached. Here's also an alleged participants in the Ukraine scheme for which the president got impeached. Love Parnasse is currently under indictment in the southern district of New York. Here's love parts now delivering the contents of his iphone to the House Intelligence Committee this weekend and the contents of another one of his phones apparently today it reportedly includes thousands of pages of material including this lovely new picture are we hadn't seen before of Mr Parnasse and president trump this is reportedly from March two thousand eighteen in Florida. Also also here's the Department of Energy telling a federal judge as of today that they will finally agree to hand over some of Energy Secretary. Rick Perry's communications around onto the Ukraine scandal. You may remember him. As one of the three Amigos in the middle of that scheme here also is the Government Accountability Office the nonpartisan unpartisan investigative arm of Congress reportedly about to publish their own findings as to whether president trump holding up the military aid to Ukraine violated. Aided the law that. Gao Report is expected within the next few days. So I mean if you're Adam Schiff on the intelligence committee you've just completed an impeachment investigation which resulted in two articles of impeachment already being conveyed or they're about to be conveyed to the Senate and that raises fascinating issues about how the Senate is going to handle this but if you are the guy who headed the impeachment inquiry and you remain responsible for leading congressional oversight oversight of the intelligence community by running the Intel Committee. I mean what do you do with this. Rising tide of new material and alarming arming new reporting. That is absolutely all about the scandal. You have already turned into articles of impeachment joining us now. Live is congressman. Adam Schiff chairman of the house US Intelligence Committee Sir. Really appreciate you making time to be with US tonight. Thanks for your time my pleasure so let me get your top line reaction to this new report from the New York Times this evening that just as the impeachment investigation was starting up in November Russian hackers from the GRU reportedly started targeting burris mother Ukrainian energy. She company whose board Hunter Biden served on. This is the company that President Trump wanted investigations about that. He thought he could use against Biden in the campaign. What's your reaction to this new report? I have several reactions. I that it would not surprise me. This is indeed exactly what Bob Mueller warned about. In his testimony that the Russians would be at this again. Dan Director Ray has said the same thing and they appear if this reporting is correct to be in the midst of another hacking and potentially and other dumping operation designed to to influence another election in Donald trump's favor. It is clear if that's the case that once again. They have a favorite They don't want Joe Widen. It would appear from this target and this would help Donald Trump and I think the other thing that's apparent from this if this reporting is correct what is the message that Vladimir Putin has gotten is not to stay out of American elections. But you're welcome to get involved in American elections as long as it helps Donald Donald trump that seems to be the message that president trump has conveyed and at least the message that Vladimir Putin has received. So we're GONNA going to start by finding out what our Intel agencies know about this. I have to say Rachel Ma. Bit distressed to see this for the first time in a newspaper report if the Intel L. Committee community is aware of this That should have been brought to our attention by now. But I don't find it surprising I do find deeply disturbing and I would hope that maybe both parties can get out ahead of this. Even if the president won't and condemn any Russian efforts to influence the next election. It is disturbing curbing to hear you say that you learned about this. I in the New York Times and that the intelligence community hasn't come to you and your committee with this according to the the times and to the private security which is called area one that reportedly detected this attack. They say that whatever was going on here with these jere you hackers..

"But what would I mistake a big Mac for a stake. Peter Luger's consider the best New York state. No I love love both. I love a great steak and I like big Mac but I would never claim a big Mac is as great as Peter. Luger's stay yes. It's great as a big back but you know what I mean. It's still a big Mac. It's not a great state and yes a great state doesn't have the entre. It's of a a big Mac. A great baked potato is not shoestring fries. They're both potato. So you got to draw the stations. We can't mistake our love for comics superheroes to cloud our judgment which is basically what's happened with fan boys declaring airing avengers endgame. Oh I cried at the end when Robert Downey died. Like I didn't see that coming as David. Letterman used to say coming down Fifth Avenue. You know it was coming. It's there's no surprises. You only get great drama when it hits you when you didn't expect it to you. That's great storytelling. You know we all knew going into it arrived down I I mean that John Mara. That's not great art. That's not great film. Cool he cl eating including living thoughts well specifically about the joker the reason why we're having this discussion. It's because and I thought it's ironic. Because not only was Scorsese. I think involve that he was like a a silent partner in the film or something but the whole film is an amish to his. What I believe is his masterpiece which is King of comedy in Nineteen Eighty two? It's not goodfellas. This is not as you know gangster movies and if you've never sinking of comedy I mean it's such a brilliant film because it lays out the themes of our age alienate all the themes that the joke was about. It paid homage to King of comedy with a lot of taxi driver. Obviously so for score says they'd come. I'm an say. Competent movies are not real cinema. I thought was a kind of a very sly way of promoting the joker film because the joker is it is a great film because Todd Phillips basically sat down with code with Scott silver somebody like that and basically I think. The premise was in the real world that we live. In what circumstances would create a psychotic Khattak murderous villain like the joker these are things that heath ledgers performance hinted at what Brian Boland's Poland and Alan. Moore's killing joke hinted at with a more realistic version of jokers origin. But with Phillips and silver did with but this one was sit down with Joaquin Phoenix who should definitely Oscar for this performance. And basically say we're going to try to show show the world how a character like the joker if he really existed which is really again the bottom line premise of the watchman. The last thirty plus years we've been living in the genre of what if superheroes existed in the real world. which by the way those back to the Revolution Marvel Comics? It's which was the first realistic take on superheroes. We're spiderman decides the minute he gets powers. I'm not going to fight crime like those. DC Comics. It's I'm I'm GONNA make money. He goes on. TV was reality TV fifty years ahead of its time. But I digress. The point about joker is it's so brilliantly lays is out what circumstances would create a joker in a way that makes you feel something because of what finally me. A great actor is in a calm of movie and makes a great performance because it transcended John Nra and became a great film about a character. Study of a murderous lunatic but why he became a murderous lunatic. What does art do? It makes us understand Dan. The human condition it gives us insight into what makes us it makes us reflect. Are we a little bit of the joker. I I mean I gotTa tell you there were moments in the joker where I was reflecting on my own life and how g their times I feel isolated and alone you know and things like that I mean. That's what great art does. You're supposed to look at a painting in a museum and feel something make it reflect back wire great songs. A Song writer writes a great song. Once it goes out on the airwaves listeners. Take it and they inject themselves into into it. That is the process of art itself that's the Arctic processes of art. That makes us feel things so to sum up up. Yeah most super movies if not all of them. Don't really do that. But the joker ironically about a villain now can they do good. Can't they do a movie like the joker about a hero and really make us feel what the hero feels. That is the challenge Allen Jr because face it a villain meteor. It's hard to the hero. And that's why Sean Connery was always underrated as a great actor because the hero it roll seem simpler to play. But it's not it's very subtle whereas resume villain can chew up the scenery a little bit. But I digress and of course here Plug my plug. She had never thought Well it a book on Competent History Silverado comprador which is treating the Ark of Comic Book Art Great Art and places I take out the word balloons and I put the artist talking about the art on his jokes.

"Schumer in their folks there is. There appears to be. There appears to be no end to the shutdown in sight and this got ugly. This clearly got contentious with President Trump. According to the Democrats Trump walking out of the meeting. So it doesn't sound like things are moving in the right direction here that just breaking. We just came back from a bottom of the hour break, and I'm watching all the monitors. And here we have democratic leadership standing in front of the microphone tree in front of the west wing Puerto Rico. So we listened and it it doesn't sound good unless I'm not in favor of a government shutdown Steny Hoyer, just read a a quote from Mitch McConnell back in two thousand fourteen disparaging government shutdown. I'm not a fan. I don't think it's a way to get things solved. But anyone that thinks that we're headed towards some type of a middle ground and the Trump's going to be able to work with the democrat. I just don't see it happening, and I see getting nastier and nastier especially with potential impeachment. There's nothing that's going to get done. Oh, I think the government ultimately will open back up here. But there is not much. That's going to get done in the remaining time that Trump has in his first term back over to Maggie Haberman. And then phones are loaded by we will get to your calls. I promise just that with that. Breaking news now, hold on a minute. We now have vice President Mike Pence is before the microphones Steve Scalise. And McCarthy, let's listen..
