"senate chamber" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"Hearings for judge ketanji Brown Jackson to become the next justice on the Supreme Court are over after four days Joining me to discuss the hearings and their import is Jessica Levinson a professor at Loyola law school The Republicans said that wasn't going to be a circus I don't know what happened to their promises What did you think about the whole atmosphere of the hearings Well I don't think it was a circus I think in some ways it was a horror show I mean the idea that she was questioned over and over again on this baseless allegation that she soft on people who violate child pornography laws was astonishing to me This is something that began as a fringe theory about a week ago And it really garnered a number of senators attention and time in the questioning and judge Jackson said over and over and explained in so many different ways that there is no there there to those allegations So yes it was different from the hearings for now justice Kavanaugh in so many ways But I also think it's curious that Senate Republicans kept reminding us of the Kavanaugh hearings because it makes us remember that he was in fact accused of sexual assault I don't think that's helping their argument here We'll also as I recall the hearings for justice Amy Coney Barrett were pretty tame Exactly I mean every hearing obviously is so much a product of what's happening outside the Senate chambers But the hearings for now justice Barrett were in comparison I think quite tame Obviously she had a different Senate Obviously we were in a different moment but in some ways I think this snake felt higher in that confirmation hearing because she was replacing a justice justice Ginsburg who had an ideology very different from hers and time was really of the essence in that case because people were already voting I think they were already sending back early voting ballots when now justice Barrett was going through her confirmation process As you mentioned crime seemed to be the focus of the Republicans attacks The last time a Supreme Court Justice was subjected to so many questions about crime was the late thurgood Marshall So was it a dog whistle I think it was two things One it hard to escape the reality that judge Jackson likely future justice Jackson and the late justice thurgood Marshall both faced intense questioning with respect to whether or not they're soft on crime Now they also both practice law in different ways And we've seen before for instance justice Jackson would be the first former federal public defender So to that extent I understand some of the questions about her views on the criminal justice system and criminal definitive Having said that I think many of the questions were frankly disingenuous and yes I think not certain elements of the party in harping on this idea that she's comfortable letting people out of federal prison and frankly trying to tie her to her clients both when she was a federal public defender and when she was in private practice people understand well the senators who were questioning her very well understand the role of lawyer and why they're important in an adversarial system and that lawyers do not have the same views as their clients in so many different situations So it did feel that some of the questioning is to be expected when you have the first former federal public defender who's going to be on the Supreme Court Some of the questions I thought were outside the bounds What about the questions on critical race theory Would senator Cruz have asked that of a white candidate Well it's hard to get into senator Cruz's head and his strategy but no I think all of the questions that you heard particularly from senator Cruz about critical race theory would not have been asked of a non minority Canada of a Caucasian nominee And I think that really brings to bear the fact that she had this very difficult role where she had to not just do what every other nominee does which is she had to answer the questions but not commit herself to any particular position But answer in a way that demonstrates that she's showing us she has a command of all of the issues But she also doesn't want to look to upset or like she's too easily thrown off of her game Like she doesn't have a proper judicial temperament And I frankly think that the bar for her when it comes to judicial temperament is very different Let's imagine that she had done anything close to which is this Kavanaugh did in his confirmation hearings I think we would have a very different discussion And yes I think we can't escape the conclusion that questions about critical race theory are very much targeted almost exclusively to nominees and candidates who are minority The only real news I saw coming out of this was that she said she was going to recuse herself on the upcoming Supreme Court case involving Harvard Is that a good decision What does that show I think judge Jackson's statement that she would recuse herself from the affirmative action cases that are going to come before the court at least with respect to the one coming out of Harvard shows that she has respect for the process respects for appearances We know that when it comes to a judicial code of conduct and a code of ethics that it is suggestive but not mandatory when it comes to Supreme Court Justices So if she really can decide whether or not to accuse herself I think that her decision to say yes I would because of my connections is the type of decision that helps bolsters people's confidence in the decisions that Supreme Court Justices make We don't know if she will similarly recuse herself from the companion case dealing with the university of North Carolina I heard some Republican senators flat out say that she was lying that they didn't believe what she was saying They said that her decisions were wrong Some of them almost yelled and they interrupted her repeatedly It seemed like they weren't giving her the respect the proper respect that she's due I think in so many overt and less overt ways and more implicit ways there were a number of senators who as senator dick Durbin said conducted themselves in a way that's beneath the Senate or maybe this is the new Senate Maybe this is now how senators conduct themselves But there were so many ways in which either the questions that were posed to her which weren't really questions were just features that misstated her record or baseless accusations the constant interruption or even in some cases referring to judge Jackson as her as opposed to a more respectful the witness or judge Jackson I think even in the way that some of the senators hold themselves when they were asking her questions in the tone that they use it there were so many ways big and small that I think some of the senators did conducted themselves in a way that I think we could conclude is degrading Thanks for being on the show Jessica That's professor Jessica Levinson of Loyola law school Coming up next on the Bloomberg launch show the Supreme Court sides with the Republican legislature in a case over.

Impeachment Managers Show New Graphic Security Footage Of Capitol Riot

"Note as the video begins. We are seeing the inside view as the mob approaches from outside and beats the windows. Endorse the images were riveting. Some senators leaned forward to get a better look identifying themselves in graphic videos of legislators sprinting down capitol hallways and members narrowly escaping out. Back doors. others looked away. One senator was so shaken that he appeared to tear up. That was the scene on wednesday as house. Impeachment managers kicked off their case against former president. Donald trump by making senators relive their worst nightmare. The january sixth insurrection at the very place they were sitting the. Us capitol waves were made when this never before seen footage was presented officer. Goodman passes senator mitt romney and direct him to turn around in order to get to safety on the first floor. Just be meet them. The mob had already started to search for the senate chamber minutes. After seeing that video mitt. Romney told reporters quote that was overwhelmingly distressing and emotional politically speaking. No one appears to be struggling more with the trial. Then bill cassidy who switched his vote. Tuesday declaring the impeachment trial as constitutional on wednesday the louisiana republican spent most of his time either furiously taking notes or pacing in the back of the room occasionally letting allowed size slip and when house impeachment managers played that video. He was seen shaking his head often and crossing his arms clearly disturbed by the footage. Later that night he told the press pool quote. I'm here to uphold the constitution. i'm upholding it. i'm doing. My job was his reaction surprising. Our own burgess everett reports. Not really he writes. That's par for the course for cassidy who's made a reputation. As an outlier. He's not a trump loyalist. Like lindsey graham or rand. Paul now cassidy is torn between what many of his constituents want critics everett notes have dumped him quote psycho bill and what he feels is his duty and the white house breaks its silence on the impeachment. Trial finally a word from camp biden until now biden and his senior advisors have avoided commenting on trial but cedric richmond. The president's senior adviser told the new york times yesterday that cassidy's vote to declare the trial. Constitutional was a quote profile in courage. Remember richmond is the same guy who famously said of cassidy. Quote dude is weird. Oh how the tables have turned because richmond is now adjusting his opinion telling the times. That cassidy has quote always been independent. A little insight into why biden is keeping his lips. Shut on you know one of the biggest stories in the nation right now. The associated press reports that white house. Aides say that behind closed doors weighing in on the trial would be a lose lose for biden that. Ap story says biden's aides think throwing his hat in the ring would just draw the focus away from trump's alleged misconduct and onto biden's own views but that strategy could change because the reports that no one is expecting biden silence to last forever especially if there is an acquittal a move that could push trump back into the spotlight and on cable interviews and inflame the country deeper.

Trump's Senate impeachment trial moves to opening arguments

"Trump committed a massive crime against our Constitution and our people and the worst violation of the presidential oath of office in the history of the United States of America. That is lead impeachment manager Jamie Raskin of Maryland today. He and his fellow House members presented opening arguments in Day two of former President Trump's impeachment trial in the U. S. Senate. Call the former president on insider in chief who reveled in the chaos of his supporters of the capital on January 6th joining us now to talk about the day or NPR congressional reporter Claudia Chrysalis and NPR's senior political editor and correspondent. Domenico Montanaro. Could have you both. Here. Thanks. Thanks. Claudia, you were actually in the Senate chamber today, where the 100 senators as jury members sit silently listening to the House. Impeachment managers make their case describe the mood for us. It was clear much of the time that I was in the chamber that the members were very engaged. For example, they were watching lead manager Jamie Raskin, in his presentation very intently reminded me of the chamber yesterday when Raskin was giving his emotional remarks. About the day he and his family experienced here. During the insurrection. I was seated on the Republican side of the chamber. Republicans were intently watching him and the other managers and that includes those who say they won't be voting to convict Trump like Mike Rounds of South Dakota, Republican member of the Senate. Also, Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell was also watching. Very closely even watch some of these videos of the president's past statements on a television screen on the chamber floor. Many members were taking notes, and this includes those who have voted for the constitutionality of the trial, among them, Ben Sasse of Nebraska had a pile of no cards on his desk. Domenico. The Democrats were making the arguments today. I know you've been watching since the beginning of these proceedings yesterday what stood out to you compared to yesterday's testimony. Well, only later in the day here, have we gotten some of the personal passion and emotion that we had yesterday about the violence on January? 6th? Mostly today, Democrats had been methodically mounting, pretty dispassionate case to show Trump is the reason for why all of this happened. They claim that it's not just isolated to January 6th and tick through numerous things for months and months. That this was months and months in the making that Trump laid the groundwork before the election and drove it home after after that election and was aware of what was being planned. Um, it kind of really makes me wonder how and what the trump lawyers they're going to say in rebuttal, aside from saying that Democrats are being selective and use the word on that they didn't say that he used the word peaceful. In his speech on January 6th. Claudia tell us more about how the Democrats are actually building their case here. Yes, they're focused on showing the timeline of how Trump built a crowd of people who distrusted the election and believed they were following his orders. Jonah Goose, one of the managers of he's, a House member of Colorado. He also talked about this. Let's take a listen. Senators is clearly was not just one speech. Didn't just happen. It was part of a carefully planned months long effort. With very specific instruction. Show up on January 6th. Get your people to fight the certification. So from manager to manager they're building this case each piece building on the next the beginning, middle and end and today mark the beginning of that story. He made a point of connecting directly to their share terror that day, and this was especially apparent is, Domenico noted in the late afternoon when managers have shared dramatic sounds. And footage video footage from the day of the insurrection that the public has not seen before. This was sounds from police scanners of officers pleading for assistance. Pleading for their lives. It's seen as they were being assaulted by the mob. There's video footage from Capitol security cameras showing the mob breaking into the capital and another stunning moment where we see Senator Mitt Romney of Utah, walking outside of the chamber, running into an officer being told they need to clear out quickly and he is running. Behind this officer to escape the mob. Wow well yesterday, Trump's lawyers dismissed the House managers arguments, calling Democrats accusing Democrats of trying to cancel the former president by stifling his freedom of speech. Medical. What did the impeachment managers say about that claim right? Trump's lawyers yesterday said his speech was protected by the First Amendment. But Jamie Raskin, the lead impeachment manager, who we heard from earlier You know, he's a constitutional law professor, And he argued that the quote factual premise and the legal underpinnings of that claim are all wrong, He said. Incitement to violence is not protected speech, and here's how he put it with a familiar phrase. It's more like a case where the town fire chief Who's paid to put out fires sends a mob not to yell fire in a crowded theater, but to actually set the theater on fire. And who then, when the fire alarms go off in the calls, start flooding into the fire department asking for help does nothing but sit back, encourage the mob to continue its rampage and watch the fire spread on TV. Clea and delight. You know,

Lawmakers and their staff members huddling from the riders gas masks at the ready. The former president's lawyers denouncing the writers but insisting tonight the former president is not to blame and that the trial is unconstitutional. But late today. Republicans joining the democrats voting. The trial is constitutional. And we'll move forward. We have it all covered tonight on. What was a tense and emotional day inside that chamber. Abc's rachel scott leading us off tonight from the hill tonight. History made in washington the first time. A president faces a second impeachment trial and the first time a president is tried after leaving office today. Democrats wasted no time making their case against donald trump forcing senators to relive the heroine moments from one month ago. Sitting in the very chamber came under attack house impeachment managers playing a graphic thirteen minute. Video reminding senators what the president told his supporters right before the capital siege. Refined fight like hell. And if you don't fight like hell you're not gonna have a country anymore trying to link trump's own words in the weeks and hours before the deadly riots to the chaos that been played out in the capital senators watching in rapt silence. You ask what 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. Lead prosecutor representative jamie raskin. Growing emotional members of his family were with him that day at the capitol recalling what his daughter sent to him and know what she said she dad. I don't wanna come back to the democrats argue. The constitution is on their side and say even though trump is no longer the president he should still be held accountable for his actions in the final weeks of his presidency. Asking if they don't hold them accountable. What could future presidents do when their final weeks insisting in their words there should be no january exception. What you experienced that day.

Bruce castor denouncing the insurrection insisting those responsible are criminals and should be prosecuted to the furthest extent of the law but arguing. Trump is not one of them. We can't possibly be suggesting that we punish people for political speech in this country that offense things since trump was removed from the white house by voters.

Video stirs emotions on Trump trial's first day

"This day was entirely focused on the constitutionality of whether or not this trial should even be taking place. The president's lawyers arguing because he's a former president. This trial should not exist. It's unconstitutional the democratic house. Managers prosecuting the case in the senate. Say that's an absurd argument because that would all of a sudden right were jamie raskin. The lead house manager called a january exception into the constitution. He said that's impossible to imagine that the framers intended that way that a president must uphold his oath of office and commit to it from the very first day all the way to the very last day of his presidency. Not some january exception where they can act radically illegally against the constitution in some way and escape any kind of accountability for it that was at the heart of what was going on today but there was also the emotional experience that the house managers put front and center in a compelling video looking at what happened at the capital on that day january sixth and interspersing it in a time line with what was going on inside the senate chamber inside the house chamber as donald trump was inciting his followers at a rally to go storm the capital you see in this compelling video that they put together the connection between donald trump was saying and what was occurring at the capitol and went this insurrection sort of broke through the barriers at the capital. This is the direct line that house managers are trying to present to the senators and it was to shock and awaken the conscience of all the senators in the room to remind them of what they all lived through on january sixth. Here's house manager. Joe goose like everyone of you. I was in the capital on january. Sixth i was the floor with lead manager. Rask like you. I was evacuated as this violent mob stormed the capital's gates what you experienced that day. What we experienced that day. What our country experienced. That day is the framers.

There are with first among Cabinet members about potentially invoking the 25th amendment, which would effectively And Donald Trump president think that's what it sounded like inside the House chamber after Trump supporters broke in to try and stop the electoral vote count. It's quieter now. In the Senate Chamber vice president Pence moments ago. Today was a dark day in the history of the United States Capitol. Thanks to the swift efforts of U. S. Capitol police Federal, state and local law enforcement. Violence was quelled. And those votes will be counted tonight. CBS News Special Report. I'm Peter King and our own. Mitchell Miller Live on Capitol Hill tonight. What more would you add to that special report? Mitch Dimitri. The emotion can be heard in the lawmakers voices on the floor tonight. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. We've never been deterred before. And we'll be not deterred. Today. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is disgusted by what happened today as mobs went through the capital. Those who perform these reprehensible acts cannot be called protesters. No. These were riders and insurrectionists, goons and thugs. Domestic terrorists. The counting of the electoral College votes, meanwhile, will go on and ultimately will lead to the affirmation that Joe Biden has been elected president. But the damage from today has been done. Ah, woman shot in the capital and later died and the memory of unprecedented images of people breaking windows to get into the Capitol lawmakers from both members, members of both parties say it's a dark day that will never be forgotten. Dimitri Mitch, we have to tread delicately because largely our job is just to provide fat. Then let people decide for themselves based on those facts. But when you have someone like Mike Pence or Mitch McConnell deriding the very people that one could argue they feared for the past four years and tried to obey through the presence of Donald Trump. Right there. You could hear the discussed that Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell had in his comments tonight when he hit the floor. He is rarely ever rattled or emotional. And tonight you could tell he was he wanted to really firmly state how disgusted he was by what he saw happened today, along with other lawmakers, and I think this is a real wake up call for Congress. As they look ahead to what's going to happen with Joe Biden becoming the president, obviously Democrats very critical of President Trump. But many Republicans also critical, very critical of what happened today, saying, there's just no excuse for this kind of violence. That happened today. And of course, this is going to really open the door to all kinds of investigations. Probably hearings. There is just an incredible amount of disgust as I mentioned over what happened, and I think that there's also a lot of surprise that it was even allowed to get to this level. The fact that you had those people running around through the capital the fact that you had people up on the steps of the Capitol even that is unprecedented. That reminded me of images that you might see in a foreign country during a coup from the sixties or the 19 seventies. But that was happening right here in the heart of the U. S Capitol in Washington. DC Mitchell Miller live on Capitol Hill now, too, right outside the Capitol building or close by W. T. O. P s Can. Duffy joins us Live on Skype or Dmitri playing off what Mitch said. You know what? You're talking about Thousands of people who showed up with the Capitol building today compared to the protests, and we saw over the southern with the George Floyd demonstrations. It maybe had a several dozen of people. At the police line of the U. S Capitol building and during those moments trying to get through, But in this case, it was pretty much everyone who wanted to get in there. So when you have thousands upon thousands of people wanting to get past your police line, who knows what you can do about that, But that is going to be a question for law enforcement answer as far as how they did get in, But just to give you some context, there were a lot of people here. 1000 just at the door of the capital trying to get in. So is an overwhelming number of people now tonight, as far as the curve use concern that curfew is in effect we had No thousands of Trump supporters here during the day, they dispersed down to about several 100 than police pushed them all back with flash bang grenades, getting them back onto Pennsylvania Avenue on the western side. Of the Capitol building where we had the most amount of people. And then there was a moment where police trying to move in and makes him curfew violator arrest. They did corral some folks in an area of by on Pennsylvania Avenue. But all of a sudden seem like people start to escape left and right. Ah, squeaking through the police lines, and it looks like now there was hardly any Trump supporter presence here. It's mostly media now. But there is a heavy police presence there. Still here outside the Capitol building because of what's going on inside right now, as Congress reconvened So we'll have to see how many arrests.

"The halls of the Capitol with Confederate flags. If those papers were not picked up and moved away. I mean, I don't know how that process then would play out. The question, then is. Can you do this somewhere else? Can you do this in a different, secure location? You know, in one of the Senate office buildings, or can they get back into the Senate Chamber and later this evening? We're waiting to hear the answer on that, actually, now, just seeing an email Joe Manchin and Democrat from West Virginia Just told our colleagues up there that the Senate doesn't tend to finish certifying the election tonight, he says. Everyone has committed to staying whatever it takes to get our job done, Mansion said. These thugs are not running us off. Now. I should remember Aaron when we were thinking that the only thing we were doing today was the electoral college certification and the demonstrations, of course in Washington, But This process was going to take awhile to play out. We were expecting three states at least to be challenged by lawmakers, the House person and Senate agreeing to it and about 22, maybe four hours of debate or conversation about each of those states. So even before this very dramatic interruption of now, several hours This was a process that might have gone into the wee hours of the night into Thursday, anyway, and I think it's notable then. If mansion is saying they're going to get this done tonight, he might know that there are some challenges that maybe Republicans are pulling back from. Maybe suddenly, this is more sense of urgency to just get this done. Because, remember the reason a lot of these people are here is to support that challenge that Republicans in the House and Senate were doing to the election results, which Mitch McConnell said today. You know, essentially that Joe Biden won this fair and square maybe sees Karen Travers will wait to hear whether any of the Republicans are prepared to drop the objections that they were planning to make on the on the floor of the house during the joint session, and then the two chambers would go to debate in their own. Chambers.

Alice Wilson and the DC women's lib movement like made it a national thing and I think eighteen percent of them stopped taking the pill as a result but the pill really didn't fall out of popularity it stood in as the as the icon for informed consent and then just as after that was established it just went back to being the pill I think that's amazing it is because it was a huge thing in nineteen sixty for one thing huge thing in nineteen seventy for another thing and now it's it's it's part of the cultural zeitgeist forever to take a break yes all right we're gonna take a break we're all excited about history and now we're going to get into science..

"On assignment in the Senate chamber on Capitol Hill here in Washington in the gallery. Overlooking the Senate floor there's a place just for journalists who report on the Senate every day. It's where they go to watch the big history-making moments. The votes that send us to war or enact healthcare law on a desk above where the Senator stand. There's a book that sits like a fixture. It's a permanent reference for understanding what's really going on below. It's a biography. It's the story of Lyndon Johnson. And how he used power to bend. The Senate to his will and become the greatest majority leader in history master of the Senate one poetry prize in two thousand three for its author. Robert Caro in eleven hundred pages Carro uses president Johnson to explore how power Crete's how it's used and the impact of that power on the everyday lives of Americans. It's. One installment in the series the years of Lyndon Johnson. Carol was already a Pulitzer prize winner for his thirteen hundred page nineteen seventy four biography about New York infrastructure mogul, Robert Moses, it's called the powerbroker cowers fans. Now eagerly await the last installment of the Johnson books all about the presidential years, the sixties civil rights and Vietnam. In the meantime, Robert carrot is out with a new much shorter book, it's called working, and it's all about the interviews the discipline, and the method that have helped Robert Caro enthrall his fans for decades Robert Carroll joins me now from NPR in New York mister car. Welcome to one A. Nice to be here. Very nice to have you, sir. I know that people constantly ask you when the final LBJ book is going to be finished. And and I promise you're going to be spared that here, I'm not going to ask you that give you a break from that perennial question. Even though you never give your sources of break from your perennial questions. That's okay. The years of Lyndon Johnson has been a forty year plus project for you in Robert Moses, many years before that when you were a young reporter there. There are lots of people with real power in this society. What drew you to these two powerful men? Well, I was a young journalist that was a political reporter. And I got interested in Robert Moses, I started to realize we live in a democracy. So we think that power comes from being elected from votes at the ballot box. But here was ago. I Robert Moses who had never been elected to anything, and he had more power than anyone who was elected more power than any mayor more than any governor more. More than any mayor and governor put together and he had held his power for forty four years. And with if he shaped New York all the highways, the modern bridges, the poets. And I said, I don't understand I'm supposed to be writing about political power. But I have no idea where he got this power. And I realized knowing that that anybody else, and I realized that have to write a book to try to find out what it was. I didn't understand what it was. And to explain a similar impulse for Lyndon Johnson. Well, by way, similar. So the Powell broker you could say is about urban power power and cities. Then I wanted to do national power. And I learned I hope with the powerbroker that if you pick the right man, you could show a lot about political power through his life. And I knew I wanted to do national power next thing. I knew I wanted to do it through Lyndon Johnson because I felt his life. He understood national power. I felt I could do a lot through his life of you mentioned those early days as a young reporter a young political reporter when you looked up from your daily deadlines in your daily stories and realized way power is important. And and why does this unelected man have so much of it? You got your start as a beat reporter at Newsday on Long Island to take me. Take me back. If you can't how do you remember those days in the clattering teletype in the grumpy editors in the newsroom? You know, I love being reporter, then as you say the newsroom was full of shouting back and forth. I work nights for awhile. I think by ours was seven thirty at night to three thirty in the morning. And if you look around the room about three o'clock, you saw everybody with a headset so on and you knew they were making dates for when they got off at three thirty. You could tell who is dating who by who is torturing on a headset, and who who is listening, but I had an editor who is like an old out of the front page days in Chicago, tough old guy named Alan halfway. I had never done any kind of investigative work in through a real accident. The meaning everyone else who's on the Newsday picnic on fire island. No one could get them on the telephone. Because this was does about nineteen sixty six sixty seven no one had cell phones. And a tip came in on a very important story. We're working on they couldn't get any of the regular investigative reporters. So finally, the editor said to you'll have to go down and do it. It was looking through files secret files that was suddenly being made available to us at the Federal Aviation agency at buydell wild airport late at Kennedy airport, and I went down. I just loved the. But I didn't know that. I knew what I was doing. I wrote a long memo for so that the real reporters who came in later could write the story and the next day the this whole Goi secretary he was managing it calls and says Alan wants to season they was Allen halfway she says Alan wants to see you right away. I said to my wife, I I'm glad we didn't move back to be fired. And I went in there, and he was reading my memo, and he looks up in may. And he says, I didn't know someone from Princeton could do digging like this from now on you do investigative work. With Todd with my usual southwe fair times. Like, I said, but I don't know anything about investigative work. And I remember he looked up but made for a very long term. And he said just remember one thing turn every page. Never assume anything turn every gun them page. And I think I've carried that advice in my head of a since you get a byline on that story on the FAA. You ask the right question. No, I didn't. You remember who did? No. Well, I. The two reporters who were covering most of this will Bob green in on Brophy. But I don't know who's via line was on. They probably oh, you a bigger debt than maybe even they would acknowledge in their later years. I wonder since they were at the company picnic, and you for the first time turned every page that was advice, and you write about this in the book that that was advice that his stuck with you throughout your entire career. Turn every page assume nothing always get the next interview read, the next document. That's a moment. It's pretty clear that is that has never left you. No, I I wish I could recount all times that that advice has proven just right? I mean, I could tell you one incident diner, the Johnson library. Of course, you can't turn every page there. They say they have forty five million pieces of paper there. And I believe I believe. If they go on endlessly. But I decided to look in the boxes of papers that related to his first three years in congress because I wanted to paint the picture of what are what the life of a young new congressman was Johnson came to congress at the age of twenty nine without any power. So I'm I said, okay. That's what ever it was. I think seven or twelve boxes I can handle that it's going to take time. And I'm looking I and you look through these papers, these letters, and memos and all and you see oh, something happened. And it happened in October nineteen forty before October nineteen forty this young congressman is writing letters to committee chairman and senior congressman basically saying can I have five minutes of Utah after election day, nineteen forty November fifth nineteen forty all of a sudden a lot of the letters from these more powerful congressman to this young congressman saying can I have five min. Minutes of your time. And I said what changed things around at that time. I was talking a lot interviewing the lot to an old Washington fixer sort of a legend in his time named Thomas Corcoran. They called them. Tommy, the cork the greatest fundraiser in history. They call them. And I said to him what happened in October nineteen forty and I remember he called me kid, and he said money kid money. But he said you never gonna be able to write about that kid. I said why not he said because Lyndon Johnson of put anything in writing? And I really believe that at the time. But I said I'm gonna look through, you know, turn every page in this ten or eleven boxes. And I'm sitting there turning one letter innocuous letter after another thinking, you know, I'm just wasting another three or four weeks of my life. And all of a sudden he did put something in writing there. It is it's a Western Union. Telegraph form from October thirteenth nineteen forty. It's from George Brown, Brown and root this huge Texas contracting firm that was really financing his early rise. And it said Linden. The checks are on the way and Linden had written in hand on the bottom. I'm not acknowledging their letters were said telling anyone about this. So thank them yourselves. But the names of the six people were in there. It will Brown root subcontractors, and I was able to cross reference into their files and find out that they were all sending this money to Johnson. And what was he doing with the money? I kept turning pages. And there was a list type by one of his secretaries fascinating list. There were two type columns in the left, which one of the most amazing documents taught I've ever seen in the left hand type column was the name of the congressman who were asking Lyndon Johnson for money in the center column was what they were at how much they were asking what they were asking it for him ounce. They were asking with sociable today's terms Linden need four hundred and fifty dollars for last minute advertising Linden. They're going to steal at the polls. I need seven hundred dollars for poll watch and Linden deciding who gets largely and who does not. Yes. In the way. He did it, Tom, Mr. Carol. Let's let's take a brief breath. And we'll come right back to this story. More with Robert Caro right after this on Robert Caro's career of doing work.

"Pleasure to have you with us on the program tonight. We'll give the state of the union and the address which may or may not take place from the house chamber. A, you know, this president has got to give a state of the union speech. It might be from the Senate chamber with house members invited whether won't be as much room. They have of course, the Senate is run by Republican. So Mitch McConnell can invite the president over? Or it could be given at another location. Maybe the Oval Office may be a remote speech, maybe a rally. I mean that that would remove all pretense of this being anything other than what it is an infomercial. So all these reponsibilities as for next Tuesday, the twenty ninth when it's scheduled well who knows? We had Stephen Andrew North Carolina was offering some thoughts in the clock. Ran out. Only you still there. Steve. Yes, sir. Go right ahead and finish your thought. Okay. I'm like a quick if this week proves like you said not productive, which I also believe it will. And since we know that government cannot just stay parsley shutdown may start happening. What types will turns? And. The TSA sick outs, which already. Once the airports are jammed up and flights are grounded over the country, the shutdown is ending in days. So I think he his speeches probably is one. If by some Merkel, they would come up with an agreement and the second one is probably won't. And my prediction is his state of the union will tell most president's all presidents and the state of the union by saying the state of our union is good. But I think he'll he'll the good parts which he has accomplished. And but I'll think he'll put it back at their feet. The state of the union can't beat that. Good. We're shut down over the fact that. Cannot agree to secure our southern border. Yeah. I'm sure the gist of the president's remarks. I have no doubt about that. Steve. Let's see here. We got a Jim in Pittsburgh to join us this evening on the Bohannon show. Hi, jim. Jim thanks for taking my call. And I kinda hate to be a Monday morning quarterback. But I wanna say one couple of things one was we haven't heard about that. Discount that it was offering a right before the midterms ten percent tax discount for the middle America. And I'm wondering why we did not vote on the wall when they had control of the Senate and the representatives. Well, I I'm not sure where we stand on tax cuts. I don't recall that particular we've had several and I'm not sure where we stand on any other tax cut in terms of the Republicans, just flat blew it. They had the house the Senate and the presidency, and they could not get it done on the border. They could not get it done on repealing and replacing ObamaCare. The Republican majority was too small and too reliable and. They they they blew it. They had a chance. And now, of course, that chance is gone. So. If you if you're if you're placing blame while the blame belongs with the Republicans they had a shot. They didn't have a reliable majority in enough members who would go along with it. Rod Tyler Texas now. Hello, ron. Jim thank you for taking my call. I would like to take this opportunity fucking about the state of the union address coincidently candidate for the presidency.

"Is the shit show. Notice one week from. Today. Week from tonight. It's the scheduled state of the union address. But what is the state of the union? State of the union. What what is the state of the state of the union? We don't know. Where's it going to be held? I mean, these are all questions, which we don't know just a quick little update. We'll get back to your phone calls, and I got the president's tweets here. The issue is is that Nancy Pelosi might disinvite Trump from delivering the state of the union inside the house of representatives chamber in which case. Well, Trump could go to the Senate chamber delivered from the Oval Office. I suggest that last week that the president ought to deliver the state of the union from the border, and I even suggested in Texas along the Rio Grande where ABC news has footage of illegals coming over on a raft with a smuggler just bringing them across and running across because there's no barrier. President do state of the union right there. But this is going to be interesting to see well, what the status the shutdown is going to be going to be any resolution between now and the state of the union and will the state of the union occur as typically before. Congress before supreme court justices. I cabinet members. Chairman of the joint chiefs of staff supreme court justices will that happen or is it going to be in a different venue, the state of the state of the union again, it's up in the air. We just don't know the White House, by the way, they they did according to reports early today they did ask for a walk through. So the president's White House communications team logistics team to do a walk through in the house of representatives chamber a week prior. So where do you see what happens whether the walk through? Is granted the White House though is saying that the state of the union will go on the question Mark is in what venue will the state.

Well, she's somebody needs to I'm not going to. No, I ain't gonna do that on live there. But she she needs to wake up. It's the people's house. Any member of the house of representatives can invite president who speak with or without the president. Well, see that's the thing. I mean, if I'm McConnell, I would step up and say, you can have the Senate chamber, and you screw those folks in the house. They're playing politics on this this speech is crucial. So whether he gives it on in the in the house chamber, a whether he gives it in the Senate chamber, a weather. He gives it in the gas chamber it I mean it needs to be heard. I would suspect that if he doesn't go to the house and the Senate doesn't invite him that he's going to give this address when the Oval Office. The question is will the media folks covered. And I'm telling you most of them will say, well, no because this is not a they'll make some excuse. This is a state of the union address. It doesn't matter where it's being delivered. It's a state of the union address from the president of the United States, you should cover the thing. But they know what Nancy Pelosi knows they know you get in front of the American people for any.

Say the very people are against this now with the people who were for several years ago, and he can quote Chuck Schumer, and he can quote Pelosi, quote, the rest of them. That's what I would do.

With your top stories Representative Adam Schiff is criticizing President Trump's decision to release information about speaker, Nancy Pelosi's trip overseas speaking today on Capitol Hill, the California Democrat discusses the letter the president sent to Pelosi postponing our trip to visit with troops. I think the the president's decision to disclose a trip that a speakers making to a war zone was completely and utterly irresponsible. In every way comes after speaker Pelosi sent a letter to the White House requesting to postpone the state of the union address until the government opens back up, by the way, congressman Schiff was also scheduled to travel with Pelosi overseas. A spokesman for democratic house speaker Nancy Pelosi responding to the president's cancellation of that trip. Drew Hamill said Egypt was never on the itinerary despite Trump's claim to the contrary, so he's not being honest about the whole situation. The White House is announcing it is cancelling the trip to the trip of a US delegation that was planning to make a trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

"And congressman Okaz you Cortez. Did that today more effectively than any other member of the house representatives could have done it because of that fame, and there is apparently no one in the house representatives who understands fame and knows how to use fame better than congresswoman ocasio Cortez who does not need a staff to explain Instagram to her or any other social media. Or mass communication tool including how she should handle herself on Stephen Colbert show. She went to the Senate chamber looking for Mitch McConnell after she checked the majority leader's office adjacent to the Senate floor. And she was told he wasn't there. But it's a large office suite with plenty of places to hide. But what are you going to do the staff says majority leader, isn't there? Every majority leader also has a separate Senate office that is granted to him as a regular member of the Senate, representing his state and so- cars Makasi. Oh Cortes took the Senate subway over to the Russell Senate office building where McConnell's Kentucky Senate offices a place where he rarely sets foot here. She is on the subway on the way to that office hashtag, where's Mitch. We went to Mitch McConnell's often where we went to the Senate cloakroom. Aware hashtag wears Mitch. Here is the congressman at the end of her search in the Russell Senate office building. He's not he's not in the capital. He's not in the Russell building. He's not in the floor of the Senate and eight hundred thousand people don't have their paychecks. So where's Mitch? Where's mitch? He wasn't on the Senate floor. He wasn't in the cloakroom. He wasn't in any of his offices. There's one more place that congresswoman Makasi oh Cortez could have gone, but it wouldn't be easy to find. There's no marking on the door. It is Mitch McConnell's hideaway that is literally what it's called a hideaway senior senators like McConnell, get an extra office some of them smaller than their official office. Some of them quite grand, and they are secret rooms in the capitol building near the Senate floor with no markings on the door. And it is the one place where a Senator can go and literally hideaway today. Mitch McConnell might have actually been using his hideaway as the place to literally hideaway from congresswoman Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. The place to hide away from the Innis. The fact that this shop now belongs to Mitch McConnell. Donald Trump started it and Mitch McConnell is doing everything he can to keep it going for Donald Trump. He is not using the powers of his office. The way Nancy Pelosi is to solve the problem that Donald Trump handed to them. He is using the powers of his office to block a solution to the shutdown and so the shutdown continues..
