New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo faces growing calls to resign
"For Governor Andrew Cuomo to step down as the governor of the state of New York or raising our getting to a fever pitch. As more allegations continue to come to light. Now, six women have accused him of input inappropriate behavior. And the State Assembly has actually more Democrats and Republicans more than 60 Democrats calling for him to step down. Is the average New Yorker. Think about this. Let's talk to Steve Casting bomb is a veteran New York journalist and a host of the new podcast called New York Gritty. You could follow him on Twitter at S cast in bomb. Listen to the New York gritty podcast on the I Heart radio app or and why gritty com Gorgeous Steve, Thanks for joining us. My pleasure. Thanks for having me. All right. Tell us about this. Now that the day I saw that married de Blasio really went after Governor Cuomo again. They don't like each other. That's obvious, but he was really hard at him yesterday, didn't he? Yeah. The mayor of New York City just flatly called for the governor to resign now, which is the furthest he's gone. And as you correctly stated, there is no love lost between the mayor of New York and Governor Cuomo. They've long butted heads. We saw that. Come to a head at the start of the pandemic. When married. Blasio wanted Torto issue a shelter in place order, and the governor said. I'm the only one who cannot issue in a shelter in place order, So you know they have not gotten along. They haven't seen I die for a long time. But this is the furthest the mayor has gone and he joins other high ranking Democrats in the state who are now calling for the governor to resign. Yesterday, the Democratic speaker of the State Assembly announced that they were launching in an impeachment investigation. Not an impeachment trial, yet they're starting an investigation. And that this would run parallel to the attorney general's independent criminal investigation. See. What do you think the average guy in the street thinks about all this? I think it's I think most people are disturbed by this for sure. I mean the latest allegation coming from a source close to an aide of the governor on down that person claims that the governor put his hand beneath her blouse and probably her. But there weren't more details about Whether his hand was on her back on her son, But he's supposedly did this in the governor's mansion when they were in a room alone together. According to the allegation, You know, you know, this governor has long had a reputation of being someone who ruled. The capital with an iron fist, and he often steamrolls over people on created a lot of enemies. The process on does sometimes been called the bully. Some ex employees of his administration have said that he created a toxic work environment. So you know, there's there's long been stories about the governor. There was corruption issues be Moreland Commission, which was investigating corruption ended with the indictment and conviction of a close aide to Governor Cuomo. And then he shut down the more than commission after touched his office. So you know, there's a lot of history there. And then, of course, already the stories about the, uh the cover up of the number of death coronavirus amongst the people who had been residing in nursing homes, so he's got a lot of trouble that's been following him around over the years. It seems to have You know, come to a head, but I don't think anyone saw these. These, you know, sexual harassment allegations coming. There were so many other things plaguing Cuomo over the years. This sort of came out of nowhere. To use the process for impeachment, the same as it is for the United States. For a present, for example, is it a vote of one part of the assembly and then a vote by the other to convict after a trial? They would need to be. Ah, just a simple majority in order to impeach him. But first, there would have to be an investigation, and now they have the power. The Judiciary Committee has the power to subpoena witnesses here and look at all of the evidence to gather evidence and examine it first veracity on again. This is happening simultaneously alongside the Attorney general's independent investigation. She hired a couple of other criminal investigators recently T o do this on so that you know there. There's a a two pronged front. As these allegations are examined on D evidence has looked at so right now They're six women who have leveled claims against the governor. But I don't think at this point that that anyone would be surprised given how this has gone in recent days. If more women now feel Comfortable coming forward,
Trump's tax returns and related records turned over to New York district attorney
"I want to move on and talk a little bit about the tax issue and the tax returns. The court ruling could be handed over to the state of New York and and Cyrus Vance, the A G o. It was the prosecutor in this case. Looking into the President. Trump has taxes, his finances, etcetera, etcetera. You're working on that case. Look, I don't know anything about it. I've never seen his tax returns. But from knowing how businesses are run, I doubt there would ever be a billionaire, or frankly, any wealthy person whose taxes would look good. Unless there's a W two and unless somebody's an employee, and unless there are no no deductions available, I would imagine it would be more complicated than the average person's tax returns. Number one and number two. I would imagine that the president Then private citizen, Donald Trump probably hired the best accountants and lawyers available and they were the ones that filled out the taxes and not him. Well, I could tell you this I mean, 45th president. United States did not go down to meet with the local enough No disrespect, Agent or block. Actually, they do a lot of work, but he didn't go down to the local agent are blocking. Sit down and say here, my W two than he lets on my tax return. You're actually corrected. Tax returns are from a business and from his personal Work, which includes media real estate. Real estate tax returns are complicated by nature. He had expert CPS. He had expert tax counsel that prepared the returns. I'm not concerned about the returns we fought, we fought it. During while he was president. We did not think it was appropriate. To be able to seek those records. At least not unless they could show a special height. Need to justice is actually four justices would have agreed with us on height need. I suspected we had Amy Barrett. Now she probably would have to. I don't know that But it wouldn't matter because now the 45th president is the former president. But Come out strategy standpoint, I'm not gonna discuss trial strategy, and I don't think these are going to trial but from a litigation strategy or case strategy when you defend tax cases used the tax returns to defend your case. So this is not complicated. The tax returns may be complicated, but this is not a complicated defense. You know, the president does make a point. I mean, I'm not sure if you followed Merrick Garland's hearing yesterday, but he e mean seemed like he didn't know never picked up a newspaper to may and didn't knows much about anything and wasn't even willing to commit to keep in the dorm. Investigation. Ongoing. We now have a smoking gun email appear. James committed Jim Clapper and in that, he acknowledged, And this was the day that he signed the sex and second Fiza application. Is the first renewal application subsequently signed a third application three of the four and admitted that he was not able to verify The veracity and truthfulness of what we now know is the bunk, which is Hillary's bought and paid for dirty. Russian disinformation dossier, which raises the question of fraud before a FISA court in my mind that seems like a slam dunk. Am I wrong? No, I think I think you're right. I think Merrick Garland has a as a judge. It's a good reputation and former Justice Department official as well. I'm sure he's going to get confirmed. Hopefully, he will apply the law to the fax is that sky is that kind of reputation? He's not an Eric holder in my view at all and again, I think that this is Look, when you have an election go the way it went, however, it went there. The fact is they get to pick their nominees. And while there's already been some objections on others, I don't expect to be much objection. There will be a party line. Objection, but I don't think will be overwhelming. Yeah. You know all these legal issues that the president has dealt with the weed? You know, the president uses the term witch hunt in so many different ways. Look at what this country was dragged through. For three years. You were you were part of following this entire Russian witch hunt. You were involved in everything involving you. You lived for three years. You You lived the first impeachment trial. You know when a quid pro quo when it was only one fact witness Only one it was all based on not even a real whistle blower. But I hear, say, whistle blower, non whistle blower, and, you know everyone that testified was either an opinion witness. Or hearsay witness and nobody had any facts and the only real the only true witness said No, he didn't want to quit port pro or quo. Um at all. He said he wants nothing. He wants to make sure they're not gonna be corrupt and take that to the next level is thin. You got Joe bragging on tape that he leveraged a billion taxpayer dollars so they'd fire a prosecutor. That was investigating his son being paid millions with no experience. Yeah, well, look, I think the fact is that we beat back Bob Mueller. We beat back the first impeachment. We had good success and a lot of the Supreme Court cases. And the second impeachment, which we did not participate. And although we filed a brief with the Senate on the legality issue of whether you can teach the president no longer in office, which we took the position you cannot The president won these battles I He will win these other battles that he's as right now. But look they're trying to. I think it's pretty clear that the moves here are to try to disable him, so to speak. From being able to run again,
50- Deplatforming and Section 230
"You know there's a lot of things going on in the world but because trump is not an office. I actually don't have a good idea of what we're gonna talk about today so. Please tell me what we're gonna talk about well. We are actually an attack a bit more about trump because seems to linger here. But i thought you when i would talk about that. Subject of d platforming. Oh okay. that's interesting all right. So on tuesday february ninth. Trump's second impeachment trial began the senate. I decided fifty six to forty four. Vote that a former president can in fact stand trial for impeachment even after having left office and that trial move very quickly house. Impeach managers who serve as the prosecution team showed us some dramatic images and videos of what happened on january six when trump supporters attacked the capital and delayed congress's certification of the election. Remember there was just one single charge or article of impeachment against trump and that was for inciting insurrection. Representative jamie raskin was the lead manager and in his closing argument. He said it's now clear beyond doubt that trump supported the actions of the mob. And so he must be convicted. It's that simple. He was not. The trial ended on saturday february thirteenth now. A majority of the senate did vote to convict trump including seven republican senators. But the fifty seven to forty three vote. Fell short of what the constitution requires. And that's a two-thirds majority are fifty seven. The nays are forty. Three two thirds of the senators president not having guilty. The senate judges responded donald. John trump former president united states is not guilty as charged the article peach birth now trump was acquitted of that single charge of inciting the capital attack on january six and because of the acquit all. The senate never held a vote on disqualifying trump from office. So he's free to run for president in two thousand twenty four trump's the first president to be impeached twice and the first to be tried after leaving office and for that he makes history. But i'd like us to return to the riot at the capitol just one more time for a different perspective to look at the link between what happened in washington and what happened online. Theoretically come ready. let's do it so remember that. Many of the writers came directly from president. Trump's save america rally that began that morning on the ellipse. That's the park near the white house. And trump had addressed the crowd with some fiery language but it was elsewhere that really mattered for weeks and really for months trump had been on social media especially on twitter and facebook with false claims that there had been election fraud and that he not biden had won the election. And if you look back now you can see pretty. Clearly how much. Social media was tangled up in the events of january sixth so first barriers around the capital were breached by his supporters around one o'clock that day in about an hour later riders broke into the building and some of them started scaling.

The implication was that he would offer solutions or at least progress toe all of these crises. In reality, he'll have to pick his battles, and the choices he makes in the coming weeks will begin to set the terms of his legacy. More from Sean Zeller, editor at CQ Roll Call Shaun How do you see it? We've been living through a just a time where politics has become like Combat perpetual combat where the party's air after each other, where they have nothing nice to say about each other. So, although the outcome here was not what Democrats wanted I was struck by the tone of the whole proceeding, which struck me as quite somber and there were very few Republicans who were castigating the Democrats for like they were during Trump's first impeachment, you know, calling it a witch on calling and frivolous and ridiculous. For the most part, most of the Republican senators. Felt that Donald Trump had done something wrong here and they were. They were very sober about it, and we're not castigating the Democrats and vice versa. The Democrats were, I think, appealing to the jury jury, which included Republican senators and not trying to offend them by Saying that they were to blame for Donald Trump's behavior. Why was the tone different this time? I think Democrats really wanted to expand the number of Republicans who voted to convict they weren't they weren't expecting that they would get a conviction, which would require 67 votes and 17 Republican senators, but They wanted to get a number of Republican senators. And so you don't want to offend your jury and the tone of their argument. The House impeachment managers argument was Hey, we were the victims here. We were the people in the capital when the mob arrived, we were the ones fleeing from them and They praise. For example, Mike Pence the Republican Vice president Donald Trump's vice president, who they had pilloried for the last four years. They praised him for being there for overseeing the electoral vote count. Despite Donald Trump

They argued that he could be inside violence again if he's not convicted. And when Mr Trump's defense team starts making their case tomorrow, they will argue that the trial itself is not constitutional. But while most Senate Republicans have echoed that argue And others, like Louisiana's Bill Cassidy have indicated they might vote to convince such Republicans are also reportedly ready to work with the White House and their Democratic colleagues. Jonathan Martin, national political correspondent for The New York Times, joining our own Sean Anderson and Hilary Howard to talk about the prospect of Republicans voting for impeachment. I think there's a handful. I mean, just 50 Republican senators. I don't think that there's more than 10. Who are in play to vote to convict. So we're talking about Mass, um, of 1/5 of the clock is here. But you think that you've got a combination of political moderates and some people who are retiring and others who are just fed up with President Trump and want to move on, and they're genuinely appalled by his conduct leading up to and including on January 6, So I don't know what they were talking about a big enough number to get two thirds the two thirds needed. I could see I sort of Max of 10. Probably that sort of sort of floor five yesterday. You wrote about this emerging group of GOP lawmakers who are interested right in working with Democrats. Who are they? It's interesting, you know, a handful kind of well known moderates ELISA more Cal sci's of Alaska the Susan Collins of Maine who were kind of fairly predictable one deal makers. But there's also this emerging group of more conservative senators from Red States. Todd Young of Indiana, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia.

I mean, he's been very, very careful and cautious, keeping his heart close to the vest as ever. He is just that He's hearing all the arguments. Now. I think most people in his caucus believe he ultimately will not vote to convict you. He did not want to be on the sort of side of six of his colleagues rather than $4600, his colleague. But he has not said himself yet, and he has made clear privately that he is very upset with President Trump wants to move on.

"Marco werman. This is the world. It is good to be with you this tuesday. Donald trump's second impeachment trial began today with a video a graphic and disturbing recounting of the events of the january six riot at the capitol building. It showed the crush of bodies storming the capital windows. Smashed police officers beaten. The video concludes with trump's. Tweet saying remember this day forever. Afterwards elite house impeachment manager presenting the case representative. Jamie raskin spoke you ask with a high crime and misdemeanor is under our constitution. That's a high crime and misdemeanor if that's not an impeachable offense than there is no such thing. Donald trump's second impeachment trial is an unprecedented moment for americans but the political drama the testing of democratic norms. That is not unique to the us in recent decades. A long list of countries have watched their democratic institutions falter and drift closer to authoritarianism historian and applebaum is look deeply into that abyss. She's the author of twilight of democracy. They seductive lure of authoritarianism. An thanks for being with us as a historian you are steeped in the history of eastern europe and the rise of right wing populist movements air over the years and even more so recently. How are you taking in the second impeachment trial. Is it for you unique unprecedented or do you kind of come at it. With a sense of deja vu deja vu about what certainly it's not unique in the world. The phenomenon of political leaders who begin to campaign against or turn their followers and supporters against democracy is one that we've seen in multiple countries. I live part of the time in poland and the ruling party there has sought to undermine the independence of the court system has attacked press freedom and has used many of the same kinds of rhetorical and online disinformation tactics that had been used by the trump campaign. We all have in our heads. This idea that democracy ends with a coup d'etat and there's a tanks on the street and the president is under arrest. Actually democracy much more often ends with democratic leaders turning against their own institutions and creating a loss of faith in them as a way of staying in power. So when you think about how. Poland began to use authoritarian tactics. What were the moments that might be relevant for the us today and he ten post that you can think of the really big and important moment is one that may sound. I strange to american listeners. But this was the moment when a plane crash ten years ago killed then president of the country and this plane crash which was a. It was an accident it was caused by pilot. Error was turned into a conspiratorial narrative by the party. That is now the party that there was an attempt to kill the president that it was somehow involved the russians that how involved the then polish government think about that meets you know if the center government had been involved in killing the president that means that everyone involved the police the courts. Everyone's covering something up. This is actually very very similar to the way that birtherism was used by donald trump in the united states. So this was also a conspiracy theory. It said that the president of the united states was illegitimate barack obama. Because he'd been born in a different country and very large number of americans believe this. So what does the parallel that conspiracy moment. Tell you about where the us is at. I mean there are so many people who believe that. Donald trump won the election that it was stolen so we should take this problem very seriously. It wasn't just the few thousand people who attacked the capital. It's the number of people in the country between ten and twenty percent who supported them. You don't remember the attack on the capital was not republicans attacking democrats. It wasn't an illustration of polarization. It was a group of people attacking the system itself. They were trying to prevent congress from functioning and the fact that there is this large support for them in the country means that we now have percentage of americans who do not accept the rules of democracy. I'm speaking with writer an analyst and applebaum and you've written extensively about some of your own friends and acquaintances in eastern europe. They made a sort of transformation and ultimately embraced authoritarianism. You've written. they were not poor and rural. They're not in any sense victims of the political transition and they are not an impoverished underclass on the contrary they are educated they speak foreign languages so knowing that there are these eastern europeans who pivoted to something dark. How does that help you understand those who planned or participated in the siege on the capital on january six. So what we know about those who participated in the capital siege as well as their supporters in the right wing media. Most of them were not very poor of those who've been arrested and who we have. Some statistics on the majority are middle class. Some of them were quite wealthy. I mean famously. There's a woman who flew to washington in her private plane. Many of the middle aged as well. This is a part of american society that feels disenfranchised or angry or excluded for cultural reasons. So do you see a parallel to your friends in eastern europe. The kinds of elites who are attracted to authoritarianism in poland have a parallel in britain. They have a parallel netted states. They have parallel spain or they have a parallel in germany and frets. There is a part of all of these new authoritarian populist movements that has strong intellectual support there are people who are writing speeches and designing the disinformation campaigns and thinking about the slogans and those are all people who are educated. So get of the stereotype in your head that this is something to do with lack of education because it isn't necessarily meantime trumpism as a concept still has a lot of support and people with guns. Where do you look to in the historical record for roadmaps for going forward. Have a societal reckoning with what we've been through and think about reconciliation like do you turn to columbia and look at how they tried to reintegrate insurgents or how northern ireland has tried to move forward. Are we at that point. I actually wrote a few days ago in the atlantic article arguing that the best precedence that we can look to our countries that have dealt in the past with violent insurgencies not that we are colombia northern ireland very different and too many ways to list but the the way of thinking that peacemakers those kinds of places have used is one that might be useful to us. We may find that. There's a part of the american public. That doesn't agree with another part of the public and there isn't going to be a solution. Just as there wasn't a northern ireland there wasn't between people who thought northern ireland should be british and those who thought it should be irish. There wasn't a halfway point. And so what did they do. They found other things to talk about. What can we do together. We can build a community center in our town. We can build roads eventually. Once they worked on these kinds of peace building projects for some years. They found ways to lower the tone of the conflict. Make the differences between whether you're irish or british. Less significant people could get passports from both countries. They they took away the border that once across ireland this doesn't offer us a blueprint or even a roadmap but it offers us a way of thinking about the problem. It may be that the culture war is unsolvable we can't come to some happy medium conclusion that breaches some kind of bipartisan plateau. It may be instead that we have to find other things that we can talk about do together. And by the way i have the instinctual sense that the biden administration understands this at some level. This is one of the reasons why by himself is not talking about impeachment. He's trying to get people focused on the economy and on the vaccines and on the corona virus. And i think that's. That's the right tactic for the moment author and apple. Bond's latest book is twilight of democracy. They seductive allure of authoritarianism. And thank you for your thoughts. Thank you within his first week in office. President biden ordered the justice department to end. Its reliance on private prisons but when it comes to private immigration detention centres biden.
