Joe Biden Addresses Nation Following SCOTUS Ruling

"I want to go right to The White House. President Biden is speaking. Let's listen in. The women out of the power to control their own destiny. And a reinforced a fundamental right of privacy right of each of us to choose how to live our lives. Now with Rogan, let's be very clear. The health and life of women in this nation are now at risk, as chairman and ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, as vice president now as president of the United States, I've studied this case carefully. I've overseen more Supreme Court confirmations than anyone today. In this case was always discussed, I believe roe V wade was the correct decision. As a matter of constitutional law and application of the fundamental right to privacy and liberty and matters of family and personal autonomy. It was a decision on a complex matter to a careful balance between a woman's right to choose earlier in her pregnancy and the state's ability to regulate later in her pregnancy. A decision with broad national consensus, the most Americans of faith and backgrounds found acceptable that had been the law of the land for most of the lifetime of Americans today. And it was a constitutional principle of justice.

Mike Davis Explains Just How Huge This SCOTUS Breach of Protocol Is

"Yesterday, we were diving into how the United States Supreme Court has suffered, I guess is the best word to use. And unprecedented leak from who we do not know, we think we know, but the person who is best able to describe this and articulate it is the head of a wonderful organization called the article three project that's article number three project dot org. And it is the terrific Mike Davis Mike. Welcome back to the program. Thank you for having me back on Charlie. So Mike, how are we supposed to make of this? The U.S. Supreme Court is leaking decisions before they happen. First of all, who could potentially do something like this, do we know who probably did this? And if so, what is the proper course of action to hold that person accountable? So I clerked for justice Gorsuch on the Supreme Court and I also served as the chief counsel for nominations on the Senate Judiciary Committee and my part of my portfolio was oversight over the federal judiciary. I have never heard anything like what happens with this leak. I don't think it's ever happens that a draft majority opinion for a Supreme Court case has leaked out prior to the court issuing the opinion, especially in a case this monumental. This is the Dobbs case where it looks like the at least 5, maybe 6 justices on the Supreme Court are going to overturn roe versus wade and Planned Parenthood Planned Parenthood versus Casey and return abortion regulations back to the states where it belongs. This is a stunning breach of protocol. Each of the 9 Supreme Court Justices have four law clerks, each of them have generally two to three administrative aids. It is a very small universe of people who have access to these draft opinions and these opinions have to circulate among the justices because they have to work together. They have to collaborate in order to draft majority opinions dissenting opinions and concurring opinions. And if you shatter that trust, if you shatter that secrecy that confidence in the Supreme Court, the Supreme Court can no longer function.

Does the Constitution Matter at All?

"Biden's nominee for the Supreme Court judge katon G Brown Jackson as before the Senate Judiciary Committee. And I haven't been following this testimony very closely. I'll talk a little bit more about some of the specifics of it tomorrow. But I wanted here to frame the broad issue that is under consideration here. And the broad issue is, does the constitution matter at all? In other words, do we have a judge here that is going to make decisions according to and in conformity with the constitution, yes or no? Now, there's been some talk on the part of the Biden administration and the left about a living about a living constitution. And part of what I want to argue here is that there's no such thing as a living constitution. All constitutions are inherently dead. Just like all laws are dead. Now by dead, I don't mean that you can't change the law. The constitution, in fact, can be amended. It's not easy to do it, but there is a process of amendment and it's been it's been done more than 20 times. But apart from the amendment process, the constitution remains, you may say, inert lifeless and dead in the same way that all laws need to be in order for them not only to be predictable, but also to mean something.

"Judge Amy Cockney Barrett faced her first day before the Senate Judiciary Committee. With the Q and a portion of the hearing slated to begin Tuesday. Senator spent nearly three hours on Monday morning, taking shots at each other and previewing was expected to be heated hearings. President Trump nominated Judge Barrett late last month to succeed the late Justice Ginsburg teeing off an explosive election year fight over the future of the Supreme Court. If Judge Verret is confirmed Sherlock and a 6 to 3 conservative majority Democrats lashed out at Republicans for moving forward with Judge Barrett's nomination just 22 days before the election after refusing to give Judge Merrick Garland that's President Obama's final Supreme Court nominee Back in 2016 hearing for a vote Eight months before that year's presidential election Judge Amy Cockney Barrett pledged in her opening remarks to be a justice who will apply the law. Quote as written and paying tribute to justice is across the ideological spectrum. Who came before her, such as the justices Antonin Scalia, Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Here's a portion of her remarks. Courts have a vital responsibility to the rule of law, which is critical to a free society. But courts are not designed to solve every problem or right every wrong in our public life. The policy decisions and value judgments of government must be made by the political branches elected by and accountable to the people. The public should not expect courts to do so. And courts should not try. That is the approach that I have strived to follow as a judge on the seventh circuit. In every case, I have carefully considered the arguments presented by the parties, discussed the issues with my colleagues on the court and done my utmost to reach the result required by the law. Whatever my own preferences might be. I try to remain mindful that while my court decides Thousands of cases a year. Each case is the most important one to the litigants involved after all cases are not like statutes, which are often named for their authors. Cases are named for the parties who stand to gain or lose in the real world. Often through their liberty or livelihood. When I write an opinion, resolving a case I read every word from the perspective of the losing party. I asked myself how I would view the decision. If one of my Children was the party that I was ruling against, even though I would not like the result would I understand that the decision was fairly reasoned and grounded in law? That is the standard that I set for myself and every Case, and it is the standard that I will follow. So long as I am a judge on any court When the president offered me this nomination. I was deeply honored, but it was not a position I had sought out and I thought carefully before accepting the confirmation process and the work of serving on the court, if confirmed, requires sacrifices, particularly from my family. I chose to accept the nomination because I believe deeply and the rule of law and the place of the Supreme Court in our nation. I believe Americans of all backgrounds deserve an independent Supreme court that interprets our constitution and laws as they're written, and I believe I conserve my country by playing that role. I come before this committee with humility about the responsibility that I have been asked To undertake and with appreciation for those who have come before me. I was nine years old. When Sandra Day O'Connor became the first woman to sit in this seat. She was a model of grace and dignity throughout her distinguished tenure on the court when I was 21 years old and just beginning my career, Ruth Bader Ginsburg sat in this seat, she told the committee. What has become of me could only happen. America. I have been nominated to fill Justice Ginsburg's feet, but no one will ever take her place. I will be forever grateful for the path she marked and the life she led. If confirmed, it would be the honor of a lifetime to serve alongside the chief justice and seven associate justices. I admire them all and would consider each a valued colleague. I bring a few new perspectives to the bench. As the president noted when he announced my nomination, I would be the first mother of school age Children to serve on the court. And I know that it would make senators Young and Bron happy to know that I would be the first justice to join the court from the seventh Circuit and 45 years. I would be the only sitting justice who didn't attend school at Harvard or Yale. But I am confident that Notre Dame could hold its known and maybe I could even teach them a thing or two about That was Judge Amy Cockney Barrett earlier today during day one of her confirmation hearing, Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, took a few minutes during the hearing to submit into record a letter from the architect of the Capitol, saying the room for the hearing with CDC compliant now that's after Democrats China, the Republicans for pushing ahead during the pandemic without proper precautions. Senator Graham said he was tested a week ago Friday. That's after brief contact with Senator Mike Lee, the Republican of Utah, who recently tested positive but whose doctor said he was cleared to return to work. He was in the hearing in person. On Monday. Here's Chairman Graham So if I may, I'll start off with a opening statement and say, Why are we here? Number one. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on September the 18th. What can you say about Justice Ginsberg? She was confirmed. 96 23. Now those were days that have since passed. I regret that 96 23. This was a person who worked for the A C L U someone who was known in progressive circles as an apparently just about every Republican voted for her her good friend on the court. Justice Scalia, I think got 97 votes. I don't know what happened between then and now there's can all take some blame..

"This level of that one. Judgments shouldn't be at the high level. It should be at the medium level. One of them sent an email to me and asked if they could talk with me. And so I invited them to my office and sat down with both of them. And for about 30 minutes or so we talked it through. And they explained their reasoning. I explained to them that I was very much deferring to the judgment of the analysts who were responsible for authoring the assessment, but that also shared the analysts views because and judgment Because I had read through all of the intelligence, including the raw intelligence, and I encouraged the two senior officers to talk to the endless about that judgment. They said they already had. But the author's thie analysts were unconvinced by their argument. Well, I said that I encouraged them to do it again if they feel strongly about it. But what I wasn't going to do was to overrule the considered and consensus judgment of those CIA analysts who were involved in this issue and had authored that assessment. And I know that there are some press reports out there saying that that I overrule those two senior officers. No, I didn't. I decided that I was not going to overrule right. The analysts who wrote about it, and so, you know, managers, you know, have the opportunity and they should weigh in. But the end of the day a Sze Yu and I have both been managers of the additive process. It really comes down to what those analysts determined what their findings are what they based those judgments on and S O that judgment at the high confidence level prevailed as far as the CIA position. So I think what a lot of people in the public might not get is that the analysts make the call, right? I think a lot of people would assume that of course, the director should say what the analytic line is, and they don't understand. The culture of the place and how it works, Right. And that is really important here is to understand that you were actually doing exactly what you were supposed to do and not stepping in and changing the analytic judgment, which would have been considered by the analyst a serious problem Had you done that? Absolutely. I would have been roundly and rightly criticised for returning that judgment just because two CIA officers Came in and waited with me. So whether or not you're talking about individual agency product or intelligent assessment, or a national intelligence estimate, the analytic views are subject to great. A debate scrutiny and rigorous review. Ah, but at the end of the day if a manager of one of those organisations decides to change the judgment, I think that is something that again is It is contrary to what the process should be, and needs to be. So So, John the second issue kind of news. The issue I wanted to raise with you is the letter. That the director of national intelligence sent last week to the Senate Judiciary Committee about Hillary Clinton. And Russian interference in 2016 intelligence. The DNA to classified and release for my listeners simply said that Russian intelligence analysis said that Hillary Clinton Approved a plan in July 2016. To tie Donald Trump to Putin and Russian interference in the election. What was your reaction to the denies declassification of the information? I thought it was a outrageous, appalling and blatant act of politization that he was He released very selectively some intelligence that was provided then to the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is right now engaged and I think a very partisan effort to try to debunk The necessary investigative efforts of the FBI that looked into Russian interference in the 2016 election. And I think it also just reflects that Donald Trump after being frustrated with the first two directors, National Intelligence Dan Coats who served that position for the beginning of the trap ministrations, then Joseph Maguire, who was serving in an acting capacity. I think they refused to bend to Donald Trump swims, but clearly Richard Cornell Who served in an acting capacity before John Radcliffe became the director of national intelligence. I think they have abused their authority in the position of the director of National intelligence. In order to promote the very personal and partisan and craven objectives of Donald.

B. H. change its rating on him he's only been a judge for six month they've changed their rating because they were looking for a different one for that but the shuttle yeah I talked to a few people who follow the process and they said that the DC circuit it has different hi he then that trial court warrant at all the court found different types of cases in trial court when but I couldn't be part of why they changed their their decision here is that you know the trial court judge there are different types of Gilbert possibilities that you need to I'm having and I thank you than you do and I feel court challenge so those are the factors that could be contributing why the hell not looking great and did anyone talk about the fact that he just became a District Court judge not six months ago yeah I wouldn't log on number two the committee McConnell unit reference not when he remarks on the Senate floor yesterday during the hearing it is some of the quick elevation but this has happened and you know in the past and in other administrations where someone is appointed to a lower court and invalidated your goal an appeal court is Walker leapfrogging over other candidates who were in line yeah so that is something else that was brought up at the hearing yesterday Walker was nominated amid the pandemic huh joon nominees or detail court that yet what the L. B. on the circuit and that's the thing I'm gonna do you think they're gonna need it actually they can't right now and has been for quite some time it considered a judicial emergency which is the term given the kind of put a lot more pressure on the remaining charges them a higher workload that the that the vacant the nominee cannot be Corey Wilson was nominated before Walker we from being another appeals court nominee and then of course you can leap frog and other network back I'm going to pipeline there's about forty four nominees currently in the pipeline some of those have yet to have a hearing so there are a number of those nominees that that could also have a hearing and so is there any explanation from the committee chair or from McConnell as to why they're not dealing with the vacant seat first what is the urgency of this Robert Ben very much in terms of attracting YA Walker's nomination look but but if we look at the numbers and and that new packet three did you hear too many and trump and senator McConnell is that we prioritize appeal court nominees over other nominees there's been some you know data that shows the Bahamian quicker process than than other nominees so you know couldn't that is the contributing factor that the DC circuit is known as the second highest court in the land at the very important court and you know I'm sure McConnell would like to get into that into.

Senate trial but he's going to do whatever he wants he says I shouldn't Republicans in the Senate really be taking their marching orders from the person being investigated you know I understand the president's frustration but I think what's best for the country is to get get this thing over with I am clearly made up my mind I'm not trying to hide the fact that I have disdain for the accusations in the process so I don't need any witnesses the president can make a request to call witnesses they can make a record I request a call Mike pence in Pompeii and Joe Biden hunter Biden I am ready to vote on the underlying articles I don't really need to hear a lot of witnesses but the president says he wants he would love those individuals to testify says he wants the evidence he wants to make his case why are you opposed well I tell the president somebody's radio quit you had sort of get out of the way you start calling the witnesses the president wants in they're going to start calling my pants and the you know the secretary of state palm pale I don't think that's good for the country I don't think it's good for the Senate you need fifty one votes to get a witness approved I want to make my decision based on the trial record established in the house as a basis for impeachment that's just me one center for but I think there's a general desire but a lot of senators to not turn this thing into a circus I understand the president's frustration of being shut out in the house but I need to do what I think is best for the country well back when you were in the house during the Clinton in P. and you were an impeachment manager I don't want to play a clip from what you said on face the nation back then in nineteen ninety nine now I ask for is a chance to do it meaningful if you have one day and your your state legislature report I don't think history will judge the Senate well if they decide to quit the the president there needs to be a record well developed with both sides had a chance to prove their case I hope we have a trial that is meaningful that will withstand historical scrutiny that will follow the presidents of the past I've never known an attachment trial without a witness in just lasting one day to present the case for the house that's frankly not fair why have your standards for Senate trial changed well Ken Starr investigated president Clinton for years spent millions of dollars he was an outside counsel Bob Muller investigated Donald Trump for two years spent twenty five million dollars I supported the baller investigation because I think he would be fair it was not a witch hunt and not do this is the first impeachment trial being driven by partisan politicians conducted behind closed doors the testimony was selectively leaked the president was denied the ability to participate meaningful and the house hearing and I want to end it I have nothing but disdain for this I'm trying to make myself clear what you're doing in the house is bad for the presidency you're impeaching the president the United States in a matter of weeks not months yeah the two year investigation that wasn't enough I think this whole thing is a crock you're shutting the president out the process in the house any partisan group could do this in the future your weapon Ising impeachment and I want to end it I don't want to legitimize it I hate what they're doing Rudy Giuliani spoke to our all agreed and said when he was in Ukraine just in the past few days here to go buy a whole separate suitcase because he came back with so many documents for this report he wants to make he was at the White House on Friday do you plan to look at the information he'd gathered is he credible well I don't know what he found but if he wants to come there's Viserys committee really if you want to come and tell us what you found out be glad to talk to you when it comes to impeachment I want to base my decision on the record assembled in the house we can look at what Ricky's guide and Joe Biden hunter Biden anything else you want to look at after impeachment but it's really wants to come to the Judiciary Committee and testify about what he found he's welcome to do so all right we'll look for that you have the announced a separate investigation into your friend Joe Biden in you said that that you love him but you want to pursue this investigation he was asked about this on here in the very much so he was asked about this on CNN recently I want to play that by I am disappointed quite frankly I'm angered by the fact he knows me he knows my son he knows there's nothing to this trump is now essentially holding power over him that even the Ukrainians when you and Lindsay is about to go down in a way that I think he's going to regret his whole life he says you're gonna regret this your whole life is there anything that you've done with this Ukraine investigation that that gives you pause no not at all Joe Biden is a is a friend he's one of the most decent people I've ever met in my life but here's the deal this whole process around the Ukraine is rates for politics they've done everything but take a wreck involving Donald Trump and his family we're not going to live in a world where only Republicans get looked at as much as I love Joe Biden and I'm sincere when I say that now that you want to talk about Ukraine it's pretty hard for me to go home and tell my constituents to ignore the fact that hunter Biden receive fifty thousand dollars a month from the gas company in the Ukraine run by the most corrupt person in the Ukraine and two months after the gas company was investigated the prosecutor got fired I don't know if there's anything to this I hope not I hope I can look at the transcripts of the phone call between died in the Ukraine Joe Biden after the investigation began and say there's no there there these are legitimate concerns about what happened in the Ukraine I love Joe Biden but none of us is a are above scrutiny I'd like to not call list off and get back on governed the country well it is spring courts also going to take a look at whether or not the president can block his financial records from being released to the public news pretty significant ruling on presidential president here do you think any president should be able to block us from Congress if the Supreme Court rules S. releases financial information who would be bound to do so I personally thank you should release is stacked tax returns I think anybody running for president going foreword to release our tax turns tax returns but the president has legal rights he's an American we can't have laws for everybody but Donald Trump senator Graham thank you for joining us we turn now to the number two Democrat in the Senate Richard Durbin he joins us this morning from Chicago good morning to you senator reporting more you know about twenty years ago when Bill Clinton was being impeached you had said at the time you wanted it dismissed now the tables are turned were set most likely for trial in the Senate but since the votes are in Democrats favor why not just dismiss it well I can tell you that it isn't just the president who's on trial and impeachment proceeding the Senate is on trial and we have a constitutional responsibility I hear people like senator McConnell talking about the fact he sat down with folks the White House is already made his decision being before he's taking his oath the promise impartial justice he sees no need for us to spend a lot of time my friend senator Lindsey Graham refers to the whole thing is a crock you know what it boils down to is we may interfere with some tee times here so we ought to really stand up to the demeanor of the history and the traditions of the Senate in terms of doing this in a proper way so you don't want a short track no I think what we ought to do is as we did twenty years ago let's have senator McConnell sit down with senator Schumer Trent Lott said down twenty years ago and start this proceeding in the proper bipartisan way that hasn't happened yet I don't know what's in the kernel is waiting for and market let me tell you what happened twenty years ago they decide to travel out that student personal hundred members would go to the old Senate gallery in sit down together we realized at that moment we were embarking on a moment then it would be captured in history this impeachment trial of Bill Clinton and you have interesting alliances for Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts comes together with Phil Gramm of Texas to talk
