AP News It appears unlikely a minimum wage increase would remain in President Biden's covert relief plan now that the Senate parliamentarian ruled against it. As the House prepares to vote his earliest today on President Biden's $1.9 Trillion covert relief package. The Senate parliamentarian has ruled the provisions to raise the federal minimum wage has to come out. That's because Democrats are using a special budget bill process that's filibuster proof, but has complicated rules. Earlier this month, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said President Biden is committed to a $15 an hour minimum wage. American who is working a full time job trying to make ends meet should not be at the poverty level. But not all Senate Democrats were on board and most Republicans were opposed. The White House released a statement that President Biden is disappointed and will work to determine another way to try to raise the minimum wage. Jackie Quinn Washington The House is poised to vote today on the president's $1.9 trillion covert relief plan. But a ruling in the Senate could change a part of the bill. Although Democrats were hoping to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, aides say the Senate parliamentarian is determined under the special budget process being used in the Senate. The minimum wage component can't be included. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says Democrats will look for another way to raise the minimum wage, but Republicans oppose a $15 an hour minimum, which they say would hurt him.

Republicans support changing Georgia constitution amid Fulton County DA's criminal probe into Trump efforts

"We know the fulton. County district attorney fanny willis is investigating donald trump and lindsey graham for alleged election interference based on calls they made to the secretary of state brad ravensburger and already republicans are seeking to muck up the works georgia state. Republicans introduced a resolution. Thursday that seeks to change the georgia state constitution to mandate the use of a statewide grand jury in prosecutions involving crimes. The move would force prosecutors to draw more grand jurors from predominantly republican rural areas of the state. Let me translate that for you. Republicans don't want black people on the grand jury. That sounds about white. That sounds about white. Alison thank you. You're welcome that they don't want any they don't they. Just want fewer black people in the grand jury that would ultimately decide whether to bring charges against the former guy as we are. Now calling anthony michael crease. A law professor at georgia state specializing in con- lock constitutional on civil rights says quote. This is an attack on black political power if folks engaged and election misconduct and fulton county. Then they should face jurors who looked like members of the community in fulton county subject to the discretion of the decisions by elected officials empowered by fulton voters fulton county. The largest county in georgia's got a population of just over a million people and it also has the largest number of black residents approximately four hundred and forty thousand which accounts for forty three point. Six percent of the county's total population by contrast georgia as a whole has a black population of thirty two point. Six percent quite a difference. But there's some good news here. According to crease. This measure is unlikely to secure the supermajority requirement for state constitutional amendments and would still require voter ratification and even if it garnered the requisite number of votes in the general assembly. There's no way the voters are going to vote for this absolutely not. Twenty-five georgia senate republicans cosponsored the proposal for the amendment georgia's fifty six member. Senate currently has a republican majority of thirty four to twenty two amending. The state's constitution would require a two thirds vote of the senate which would necessitate the vote of at least four. Democrats before heading for ratification from voters. But that doesn't make this effort any less racist. No it's unlikely but super racist

It may be a year that the party has to reinvent itself. Seven Republicans voted to impeach the former president, but the rest remain staunchly loyal. I think we're seeing the potential of one of those years when parties start to split and reform, political consultant Leo McElroy says. It's happened before in the Republican Party. We saw the Republicans. Many of them depart the party when very Goldwater was nominated in 1964. They felt he was too conservative and they bailed. While he thinks there will be some reforming of the party in California. It may look different, especially with a possible recall of Governor Newsome. You don't just recall a governor, you need to replace him, and I think that a lot of California Republicans Are sufficiently non trump that they're not going to go for a trump clone to take over the governor's mansion if they were to succeed in the recall. All in all, he says. We're in for interesting times.

McConnell says Trump was "practically and morally responsible" for Washington, DC riot after voting not guilty

"Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell delivered a scalding denunciation of former President Trump calling him morally responsible for the attack on the U. S Capitol. But before that, of course, he voted not guilty in the president's impeachment trial. Joining us for more is Ken Walsh, White House and political analyst for U. S News and World Report. Can it looks like that High wire act continues for many Republicans and their relationship with the former president. Well, it does. And you know, this basically is a rebuke to President Trump because It was 57 to 43 vote to find him guilty of inciting the insurrection, But it failed to reach the 67 votes two thirds needed to convict. So it was a majority vote, including seven Republicans. Of course, what it is basically, it's it's sort of an outcome without a conclusion and It's um there's still a special congressional commission that's going to proceed to look at the events of January 6th when the capital was invaded. At the state level their investigations of President Trump's conduct and trying to overturn the election in Georgia and in New York. So This really has not resolved very much, And there's a lot of sense of disappointment really around Washington as to how this has all come out. Wasn't worth doing. And, of course, this such a ferocious partisanship in the air that, um, the House managers and the Democrats who pushed this field was worth doing because President Trump needed to be rebuked. But of course, he was not convicted. And so a ZAY say there's just the sense that this is, um This does not really resolve anything and that we're just as polarized as we had been with President Trump with the center of that of former President Trump in the center of that. And, um, we're gonna be talking about this, Uh, for well into the future. Did you find it interesting, though, that McConnell pointed specifically to criminal courts is a possible future forum for this kind of thing for the president. The former president? Yes. Yes, he did, And he sure almost invited that to happen. On But, you know, they're just step back and look a historically, um, in our first um, really two centuries we have one impeachment of Andrew Johnson 18 68. Ah, then, 130 years later, we had, um The beginning of appeared where we had three Bill Clinton. In 1998 and then Donald Trump twice in 2019 2021. So what's happened is that I think, partly because the presidency has gotten so powerful, and there's an effort in Congress to rein it in. And partly because we have become so partisan on polarized as a country, impeachment has become not the rare process that the founders envisioned, but something that's used as a As a weapon by both parties really against the sitting president. So we've had three impeachments now since 1998. And that's a really a remarkable historical development that impeachment has become. More of a regular eyes thing in our country. And as I say, three of them since

We sent your people for using station average for the wrong purpose. We don't send your people for inciting insurrections that kills people in the capital. As far is when it comes to the former president's role in the GOP Republican campaign strategist Bob Gardner offers this. I think it's going to be a very diminishing as time goes on. He's still a force in the party. There's still he still has his base. But you know, it's really kind of out of sight out of mind. He's not even on Twitter anymore. And he will do rallies and Hill maybe have his own talk show or even his own network. But I just don't think that he's gonna have the same effect on the party that he has. For the last five years.

"They can't open until the tier four category. The executive director of the California Attractions and Parks Association, Aaron Guerrero, threw her support behind the plan. By the end of 2020. The Edie Edie had paid out 10.4 billion and benefits to claim its whose identities were unverifiable. And that figure could climb as high as 30. Billion California Senate Republicans are concerned about the looming tax problems now facing unsuspected and unemployed Californian stemming From mismanagement and fraud in that insurance program. Well, this week's Senate Republicans delivered a letter to Governor Newsome urging him to take immediate action to help those victims. GOP Chairwoman Jessica Milan Patterson has more on that letter. One of the things that we're seeing now Post the fraud that's been uncovered between 11 and $13 billion that has been uncovered and fraud whether it was two inmates on death row where prisoners or people out of state Now what we're seeing is that with tax season right around the corner, some individuals that were their identity was used for these fraudulent schemes and they'll fill out their taxes. They'll think everything is done correctly and possibly months after that, we'll get a call from the franchise tax board. Saying that you did not pay all of your taxes because these claims came in under your social security number. Yes, we have heard of this. So what was in the letter from the Senate Republicans? Is it just asking for more oversight or what? The Senate Republicans are really asking this governor to step up, you know, they had asked for previously more oversight for the E D. D they had asked for an audit in California Democrats as they usually do push to the side. You know, these aren't problems that we should be running into in California with the Silicon Valley, the tech capital of the world. We shouldn't have these types of issues with using software from the 19 eighties, but we do and what we really need to do is The new Sin Administration needs to step up and take responsibility, correct the injustice and add those necessary steps to take away this unnecessary stress that individuals are gonna feel from their governor from their government. Patterson's says that some of the problem could have been avoided with the D D. We have Off where at the e D. D that is from the eighties. That's ludicrous. And so we absolutely would have had more oversight. From the beginning. We would have worked hand in glove with the Silicon Valley two sticks these issues that we have on the technical side that could have weeded out some of this fraud and certainly could have gotten back to you. Individual Californians that really needed the assistant and that this governor in this DVD has failed with And again that is a GOP chairwoman, Jessica.

"Okay so who <hes>. Everyone their newly leaked audio allegedly showing. Tom cruise yelling like seriously yelling. Crew members on the mission impossible seven. He's berating the crew for breaking covert protocol which no one should be breaking protocol. But i dunno take a listen and see if he would handle the situation in the same way at all. All won't every in use the us we are creating is reportedly saw two crewmembers standing together in a monitor. Not six feet. Apart which is what sparked outbursts mission impossible. Seven has been hit with several cove related delays most recently when they had to shut down production after several crew members tested positive in october. Who tom cruise. I forgot that he has an anger problem. I forget about the sometimes. You know i get it but i don't get. It is different way. You could handle the situation these crew. The set seemed really hard places to manage <hes>. The restrictions in the protocols that are in place you need to follow them so that people say. But it's like you know the conundrum of lake. Do we need to be making an action film. In the middle of a pandemic. I dunno complicated because action from very intimate thing movie sets are very very intimate things and to have these people. Have tom cruise yelling at people who make far less money than him. Who just trying to do their jobs. I i just feel. I'm conflicted about it. No no and it makes sense and think the answer is just that both of these things can be true that you shouldn't yell at someone like that. also you should be following falling protocol. So it's just like but then as you said it's just like it's it's upsetting because it's like okay. Yes anyone under the pressure that he's under. I'm sure like he expressed it in a very negative and and productive way but also he. There's a way to not feel that pressure and it's too like you said not be filming an action movie right now

"I'm Ryan Gorman with me this evening, James Verlander on the board. We've got a lot to run through. We are gonna spend some time kind of recapping What happened here in the state of Florida will do that in the next hour with retired USF political scientist Dr. Susan MacManus, Also Florida State representative. Anna Esseker. Mani is going to join me to talk about the future of the Florida Democratic Party after they got trounced here in Florida. I mean, What an embarrassment for the Florida Democrats. That wass a bad bad election following other bad election in 2018. They need a complete overhaul. Eso. We'll cover some of that kind of stuff in the eight o'clock hour coming up. It's 7 35 talk to Grace Panetta business inside her senior political correspondent, and we'll step through some of the legal issues that popped up over the past couple of days. Let me Respond to some of what the president said. The news conference is over. He did not take any questions and I've got a lot of gotta unpack here. Let me start with the fact that he came out and said Republicans Won control of the Senate. They do not have control of the Senate Republicans did a fantastic job in Senate races across the country, and especially in House races. Also some state legislature races. I mean, Republicans did really well down ballot certainly outperformed expectations. But right now you have the Senate. At 50 Republicans and 48 Democrats with two races in Georgia that are run off, so we won't know the outcome of those races until January, and then it really comes down to what happens with those two races and what happens with the presidency because if Democrats were to win those two races in Georgia and Joe Biden were to be the president, then Camilla Harris as vice president would be the tiebreaker for a Senate split 50 50. If Republicans win just one of those Senate races in Georgia. They do have control of the Senate, or if President Trump would win reelection. Then he would be able to have the tie breaker with Mike Pence as vice president. But The Senate at the moment is still undecided. Illegally cast votes. This was said time and time again. I'm not exactly 100% sure what he's referring to. But If it's mail in votes or provisional votes, or things like that provisional votes are cast to ensure there isn't Fraud in these elections. You've got a lot of military votes that are actually still coming in. In certain places are those illegal votes. I don't think so. I don't really know what he means by illegally cast votes. But look If you think there are votes that had been cast illegally. Then this is not a situation anymore. Where you just say it or tweet it? You have to prove it in court. That's what has to happen here. And there's been a lot of lawsuits filed so far. Really haven't been very many wins. One small one in Pennsylvania, and that's about it. Couple others got tossed right out. But hey, If they've got proof. Take it to court and show your evidence. Which is these blanket statements. These generalities that's not gonna cut it now. Not when the presidency's on the line. Fake polls keeping Trump voters at home. I don't understand the logic there. The poles and what they were showing. And we're gonna have to spend a lot more time on polling. What was right. What was wrong? There was a lot more. That was wrong. Then what was right all of that? Well to do that on another show. We just don't have time tonight, but Trump. Being down. In a lot of these places. That to me seemed to energize Trump voters to show up and the fact that it looked like there was a chance the Democrats could win the White House. And the Senate and keep the house. I think that lead to a pretty good surge for Republicans that put them over the top in a lot of these down ballot races because people got concerned that if Democrats ran everything Then all of a sudden, you're gonna have something like court packing happening or new states or a green new deal. And pollsters knowingly getting it wrong. The polling industry I mean, they were damaged going into 2020 even more so now. So why would you purposely get it wrong and just lose even more credibility? And I'll tell you something else because I was talking to some Republican operatives who were working on campaigns across the country. And it wasn't just the public polling. They got it wrong. The internal polls. The polling that these campaigns pay good money for So they could figure out where to allocate resources to a lot of them. Got it wrong as well. Have Lindsey Graham thought Given example if he thought that the polling was so wrong, and he was just going coast to victory in South Carolina. Lindsey Graham. Right now he's got a 10 point lead. In that race. It's done. He's he's the winner. Right now. He's at 54, a half percent to Jamie Harrison's 44%. If he thought that the polling was so off, he knew the polling was off. And he was easily gonna win. Then why was he on Fox News every night begging for money. Because his internal polling Was actually probably off and show the rate type showed the race tighter than it turned out being in the end. President asked why mail in ballots are so one sided and this was about where I was losing it. He told his voters not to.

"Party controls the Senate Republicans hold a 53 to 47 advantage in the Senate. They're also playing defense and 23 of the 35 Senate races. Democrats believe those present several opportunities, the flip at least four of those seats and win back control of the upper chamber. Most polls do show Democrats giving back at least one seat where Alabama Senator Doug Jones has been running behind his Republican challenger. But Republican incumbents in Colorado, Arizona and Maine or considered underdogs and other Republican held seats in North Carolina, Iowa in Montana, are considered tossups.

"Being punished for being in that middle ground. Oh, sure the biggest statistical chasm that you can point to is South Carolina Lindsey Graham. Has Been in the Senate for eighteen years. Now, the first fifteen of those years Lindsey Graham was kind of a freewheeling maverick quasi moderate but always looking to make deals he was best friends with John McCain and. Graham ran against Donald Trump in the republican primary for years ago he got trounced he didn't even make it to Iowa but still was allowed opponent of trump's donald trump is most unelectable Republican. I've seen in my lock he's race baiting xenophobic religious big. He's a jackass trump one gram reversed course and decided to become an ally. It hasn't worked. There are voters in South Carolina. Just don't trust Lindsey Graham and that's why Graham has drifted into a very close competitive race with Democrat Jamie. Harrison there are other states to where this dynamic is played out interestingly in Maine that was going to be my next question because Susan Collins I think is a very interesting example of a senator who has at least in speech tried to be more distant from the president often talks about how she is concerned about the president actions or that she is disappointed though she tends to still vote with the rest of the Republicans in the. Senate. So what does the talented she's facing here? For Collins, she has twenty four years of her own brand built up in Maine. So she's different than these first term senators like thom. Tillis. You know most of that time has been very much trying to occupy the middle space twins two ideological flanks in the trump era. It's just harder to do that and she is doing much better than trump is in statewide in Maine. So there are still some independence there in in Maine who who are supportive of her, but the math has gotten trickier. So when you look at the political landscape as a whole, how many seats actually have to change from Republican? To Democrat for control of the Senate to flip and from what you're seeing now but is a sense of how likely that has to happen one way to look at the Senate map. This year is that the way the Republicans have broken things down they sort of have tier one tier two and then the third tier, which are the sort of crazy wildcard races that are charging onto the scene late tier one are their most vulnerable seats and that has always been. Cory. Gardner in Colorado Marsh Mc Sally in Arizona Susan Collins in Maine and Thom Tillis in North Carolina after that the next tier have. been and like these are the races that Republicans absolutely have to win to make sure they hold onto the majority Joni. Ernst, in Iowa Steve Daines in Montana and the to Georgia Senate races, David Purdue, the incumbent, and then the special election to fill Johnny Isakson seat currently held by appointed. Senator Kelly Leffler. Those four are the next big targets for Democrats, and after that, you'd when you've sort of really get into the holy cow if this goes completely south for republicans therein in a lot of trouble and those states that there you know pouring money and now to just reassure themselves or South Carolina. Lindsey Graham Kansas the open Senate seat for retiring Senator Pat, Roberts Alaska Dan Sullivan and to some degree Texas with John Cornyn. There's just been a lot of talked about the Biden campaign doing really well in Texas, and if so he could bring Democrat j Hager along with him. So that's that's all to say that Republicans in the Senate right now are probably pretty worried. Yes. Yes. Not Full on panic still feel like in Iowa Joni Ernst is in a toss up. You know it's it's she's still in the fight and the other states that I was mentioning earlier Alaska Kansas South Carolina You know if things would go completely south on trump and Republicans and a couple of those seats tip to Democrats. You know that means will know very quickly within a day or two that Democrats have the majority but the Republicans generally feel that if all those voters come home, they realize in the final two weeks that this is red shirts versus blue shirts. You know forget about your worries about this or that if it's just a simple partisan fight, they feel like they're cadidates can win those races and they'll be okay. You know that's Probably accurate if people do there are just more. Republicans. In places like Alaska and South Carolina than there are Democrats. So how many people are going to cast a vote for Donald Trump for president and then turn around and vote Jamie Harrison? Who would be the first Black Democrat added to the US Senate in the deep South, I don't know I don't know. Paul Kane is senior congressional correspondent for the Post. FACEBOOK has taken steps to limit political advertising including no political or social advertising after the election to limit misinformation and confusion that can come in the form of ads. Twitter doesn't have political ads, but they've enacted tons of policies that are similar to facebook. For one. They are banning misinformation about voting specifically calls and misinformation that could distort people's understanding of the voting process for instance, statements like on election day I see there's really long lines at these polls when they're actually aren't really long lines or people saying, I think there might be immigration agents standing at the polling stations that's happened before and social media that was a memo in two thousand eighteen will that's not allowed. President, trump has refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the election and that is like the nightmare scenario for a lot of people including the tech companies. He may tell the world that he won when he actually hasn't won in an ad that has runs the risk of going viral, and so there you're seeing tech companies they're going to. Essentially, if anyone says that they're going to redirect people to authoritative voting information..

"Funding. which is crazy? You know it did seem like the White House was talked out of that. But. There are some real gaps in political interest right now I mean you have. Rand Paul is Stacey and you can go around being like I'm the only real principle member laugh, but then you have republicans like cory. Gardner Susan Collins who are up for re election cycle, not more vulnerable allow more vulnerable and cannot go home for August recess without having gotten a deal. If you're looking at what's tipping, the scales for McConnell is one. He wants to get his liability protections. But also he's really trying to preserve a Senate majority, which is really not looking great right now, so he knows that he cannot hang his members on whom majority hinges out to dry. So, Sounds like a mess. Mitch McConnell is now saying that it's GonNa take three weeks to try to hammer something out. Is that right yup? In our own Jordan Weisman. He's come up with this idea of. Republicans to kind of swallow their pride here and just extend the unemployment benefits for three weeks while politicians hammer something out it. Is there any chance of something like that happening? So. That's pretty skeptical of that I think one reason. IS THEY JUST WANNA keep the heat on Republicans. They think it helps them get a better negotiation. Is there any thought going into idea of making the benefits automatic? We've talked about this before on our show. Where instead of putting a deadline like a time deadline, these will run out in. July these will run out in December. Say Okay. These benefits will run out when. Unemployment dips below nine percent or something like that, so there's an automatic trigger and it instead of having these protracted negotiations and sort of what we're going through now, yeah! That's Democrats. Go Shading Position Right now. It's I think it's not really you don't sound optimistic that that's not going to happen. I think legislators like having these chokepoints where they get to renegotiate the terms of the deal and you know. If Biden is president. You know Republicans don't want all this automatic stimulus money being done they. They want to have their say in it. I mean it's a shame because it'd be more sane unhelpful to have things tied to whatever the economic factors are at any given moment but I just think that's probably too big of an ask right now, Looking at what happened over the last week in Washington? Like I have this. Massive concern, That, we're spending so much time fighting over the basics here like whether we should spend money on testing which I, think most people agree. Obviously we should whether we should fund the CDC all these things like whether chef, a payroll tax cut which turns out. Most people don't think a good idea, but we're spending a lot of time on them, and we're not even getting to issues. They're really important that we do. See coming down the pike ahead of US stuff like the fact that state and city governments are running out of money and need some stimulus from the federal government like we're not even getting to that conversation, because we're wasting so much energy on the basics. I mean we will theoretically get there in a few weeks. It's a really inauspicious start when you spend three days considering the White House do not zero out funny for testing, which is a single most important thing. You're you're completely correct on.

I don't there's nothing wrong with listening if somebody call from a country Norway we have information on your apartment. Oh I think I'd WanNa hear you want that kind of interference in our elections. It's not an interference. They have information. I think I'd take it back with us. Our guest Peggy Noonan David Jolly and Barbara mcquade. You're laughing first of all. I WanNa know if you buy the democratic danger warning about a newly emboldened president or a few by the Republican publican argument. Let's let the voters sort this out. The problem with that is this is about dirtying up our next election in two hundred whatever. Many days as I said at the top of this broadcast long ago. Yeah I do believe first of all I am a great supporter of censure. And there's still time to do it in the US. Senator Israeli merger. Well darn well should. It doesn't take sixty-seven votes that takes fifty one. This would be the first formal disapproval and censoring of a president by the Senate. Since Andrew Jackson it is a large and serious thing and it could be done. So there's that piece of it I happen also think the election is in almost almost nine months. America does not really deserve to be torn apart made more bet bidder go through the tunnel Malt and the chaos of get rid of this president get new president. Let him staff up look the world get used to it. Let him get his party's nomination would be a dreadful thing. For America. Essential would be a clean good thing for America. Let me add by the way about Lamar Alexander who I think did something. So disagreed with him on witnesses yesterday but I really liked one thing. He surprised everybody Brian by saying nobody expected this from he said essentially chilly. Oh the president is guilty. This case has been made. I don't think any other Republican senator had said that and now it is led the way I some weasley people to say. Oh well the Lamar speaks for me. But I was actually personally relieved to see a Republican senator. Say Say do you know we've looked at all the evidence we heard the testimony. Seventeen witnesses we've listened. It is completely clear that the the president was guilty. So why don't we just admit it. Then we can get into side issues about whether it rises to the level of removal etc.. It was a relief just to hear candor done. I didn't warn you. We're both from New Jersey. So tends to happen. Hey David Rally about your old legislative body there is one more move. You know what I'm GONNA say. Pelosi can try to subpoena one John Bolton Special Session Russian House of Representatives walking and chewing gum. On say Monday we got nothing else going on. Would you be down for that. Say hold hold your powder until the book comes out. I'll listen how you get to deal with because of this first of all. I don't think anybody should buy the book and I. I've been piling on John Bolton for two days I'm saying this on behalf of House Democrats. They have led the nation on a journey toward justice and they have absorbed the hits for doing right by the constitution by the rule of law. They have taken the political consequences as they come John. Bolton's about to reveal in six or eight weeks what he knows. I don't think Nancy Pelosi needs to draw her caucus into that until we know what he wants to reveal and depending on what he reveals. Then perhaps they reconsider but I love what you said about Lamar Alexander because right now the first draft of history is being written about the impeachment of Donald Trump Donald Trump and Republicans are going to say he was exonerated rated. He was acquitted. Yeah just like they frame the mullery starting with the Super Bowl and other voice as needed to chime in and say you know what a majority of the United States Senate on finding effect found the president guilty of abusing his office every single Democrat. Did Lamar Alexander did mcaliskey. Did Marco Rubio did. And we're we're GONNA see five or ten more Republican senators in the next week say Donald Trump did wrong. Well you know what Mr President a majority of the United States Senate found you guilty of abusing your office. Yes they may not have voted to to to remove you from office but you have been found as a matter of fact to be guilty of abusing your office. It is important. Written that draft of history be written alongside with the president's going to try to do next week Barbara mcquade two words from your world prior restraint. What's what's the White House power? If they really don't want this book coming out which again. You can already preorder. I'm not trying to sell books pointing it out. You can preorder on Amazon. What's their power over this book? Well prior restraints are frowned upon strongly in Supreme Court jurisprudence the Pentagon papers case. This is the biggest example of that. If there was something specific in there that is classified information that could be a basis for blocking that portion portion of the book from coming out but free speech rights are very strong in this country. And so I think that story is GonNa come out maybe with some minor redaction but you know John. Bolton has written something like eight books he has gone through this pre publication review process before he and his lawyer say there's nothing classified in this so it seems instead that that's being used as a pretext to block publication. Yeah this is not his first Rodeo. He's been dealing with classified information all his professional life another break for us. We'll continue this right after this. There has never been anybody that drew crowds. It's like we draw.

"senate republicans" Discussed on The 11th Hour with Brian Williams

"Indication other than the fact that the president didn't want there to be witnesses and the Republicans went along with it. And that's all that we know. I saw those comments tonight from Lev. PARNIS look Arneses. Someone who's been indicted and needs to show that he has a story to tell there had been a lot of folks like that in the that trump story have come forward to to say to become the sort of true tellers at the moment it remains to be seen what what information he has and what that means to the fuller picture but we do know and probably the most significant thing about this besides the fact that trump was telling them what to do. Was that PAT. zip-lining was in the room for this. He witnessed it and obviously he was the lead lawyer for the president impeachment. Democrats tonight on Capitol Hill will some that. I spoke with making noise about Cipriani's role. Was it unethical for him to have served as a lawyer while he was also a witness. Can they raise ethical questions about that. Can they make bar complaints to the D. C. Bar about his role here. Did he make any statements or going going back in examining everything that he said during the impeachment trial to see whether whether this new fact lines up with what his statements statements were and whether any of them were false. We don't say it often enough. This period has been an unbelievable one for journalism and journalists especially our brothers and sisters jurors in the print trade Mike Schmidt among those had a great week out front for the New York Times. Michael Thank you very much for joining us in starting us off at the end of this long week. Take to Peggy Noonan. We go great to see you again. First of all are you surprised that only two Republicans crossed over after all the Murkowski drama and Lamar Alexander drama. Only Romney and Collins. Yeah it was a a smaller number than one would've hoped I'll tell you. It struck me the decision not to have more witnesses either a handful or one or two or twelve whatever. The decision not to have more witnesses just struck me those an old French phrase. It's worse than on a crime. It's a blunder. It is just a mistake. It leaves history unsatisfied. It knows the fact that a major material witness John Bolton apparently had led out this word that in fact he could prove that the president was guilty the Democrats and been saying he you was guilty the Republicans have been saying. Oh no he's not here's a new witness who just close it up and tells you who connect the president The Whole Story Order Book if you want to raise my goodness it's so I hate to say an old fashioned fussy word like unbecoming but how unbecoming coming is this. He has major information that America has a right to hear nevermind wants to hear it has a right here. It is astonishing that he is not speaking if he will if he cannot speak before the Senate I I will just find it astonishing if between now now Friday night and Wednesday four. PM when the Senate votes to acquit or convict the president we will not hear from John Bolton in that the time it it. It is the withholding of evidence that feels abusive to the whole process to me. I'm on board with unbecoming coming being a terrific word of this day and always. Hey David Jolly I heard one Republican on the air tonight say Republican senators didn't vote doing their jobs today. They vote voted to protect their jobs. And then there is this from Marco. Rubio which I'm hoping you can explain to me quote just because actions meet the two standard of impeachment does not mean it's in the best interest of the country to remove the president from office. You WanNa take a wack at that few greater examples of the absurdity of today's Republican Looking Party then how Marco Rubio justified his vote. Apparently what has vote will be on Wednesday and Brian at all of this today. I mean today. Almost as a culmination of what has been inevitable for almost three and a half years since Donald trump came down the escalator including his his his taking over the party including the Republicans enabling him including him engaging a misbehavior that led to his impeachment. There was a sense of inevitability but as we sat here throughout the day I think particularly viewers who who have followed this closely. There's an anger that has developed tonight. There's a there's a concern in a how could a rubio make such a statement but there's an anger tonight and disappointment and a fatigue and I think the important thing is to recognize is the answer to that. Anger lies in Iowa on Monday. Night buys a New Hampshire and South Carolina and the Super Tuesday states that ultimately early this republic belongs to the voters it belongs to the governed not to those who do governing and. There's an opportunity just within reach for the American people to to do what Republican senators like Marco. Rubio are failing to do this week. Abraham Lincoln said elections belong to the people and if they choose used turn their back on the fire and intern burn their behinds. Let them sit on their blisters and I would say. There's a lot of people across the country tonight night who have no intention of sitting on their blisters. They're going to go to the polls. Donald Trump may have won this round but I think he loses the next one in November. Barb I I was looking at you looking at John Roberts say. Don't look at me to break. No tie even though Salmon Chase did it a long long time ago The congressman invoked Lincoln convoked Salmon Chase. Were you surprised about the chief justice's ruling today. I actually wasn't and you could see. He was actually reading from a piece I so he clearly had anticipated the paid that this moment would come and he wanted to be ready to respond when it did John Roberts famously said during his confirmation hearings that he believed a judge's role was to call balls and strikes. I don't know if he's always lived up to that. Standard on the Supreme Court where one's worldview matters awful lot which is by. We see a lot of five four decisions the Supreme Court but at the trial level. I think he very much wanted to be the empire simply presiding and not involving himself in making substantive decisions visions and so I think many people predicted that when that moment came if there was a fifty fifty tie he would simply say the motion has failed to reach a majority and and that's what he did. None of our guests are going anywhere. We've taken all their car keys to prevent that they're staying with us our special coverage continues right after this break in everything I do during this. I'm coordinating with White House. Counsel no difference between the President's position our position as to how to handle this harsh with your. This is a political process. You don't know your numbers you don't Know Your Business. Most companies don't have a clear picture of their business and that's why many businesses struggled to grow net suite by Oracle..

"Good Morning I'm James Helmand from the Washington Post and this is the daily to Oh to Tuesday January twenty eight in today's Today's news. The CDC warns Americans to avoid nonessential travel to China. We get an early look at president. Trump's Middle East the peace plan in Kobe. Bryant's helicopter pilot received clearance to fly in poor weather right before the crash. Uh but I the big idea. Since ational revelations from President Trump's former national security advisor threatened to upend the Senate impeachment trial on Monday increasing the chances that senators would vote to allow witnesses in a perilous development element for the White House inside the Senate Chamber as the trial entered. Its second week. Trump's lawyers pushed forward with their defense of the president largely ignoring the uproar caused used by leaked details from a book by John Bolton as part of their defense they pivoted into a sharp line of attack on former vice president Joe Biden and his son hunter over their involvement in Ukraine but outside the chamber. Gop Senators caught unaware by the Bolton News including Mitch McConnell himself grappled with divisions in in their ranks and fresh calls from a small group of Conservatives and moderates who want to hear from Bolton before the third presidential impeachment trial in American history comes to a close Mitt. Romney says it's increasingly likely that other Republicans will join him in voting to hear from Bolton Senator Susan Collins runs says the reports about Bolton's manuscript strengthen the case for witnesses she says she having a number of conversations with her Republican colleagues four or GOP. Senators need to crossover to vote to hear from Bolton speaking on the floor last night trump. Defense lawyer Alan Dershowitz the same Dershowitz Schwartz who previously represented OJ Simpson Jeffrey Epstein among others said Bolton's allegations against trump do not constitute impeachable offenses. Nothing in the Bolton book he said would rise to the level of what he called an abuse of power the first trump lawyer to speak at length earlier in the afternoon was Ken in Star the same Ken. Starr who led the investigation of Bill Clinton that led to his impeachment by the House in Nineteen Ninety Eight and subsequent acquittal by the Senate it star talked for an hour about how terrible the impeachment process is for the country lamenting that. We're in an age of impeachment and about how it's being overused I and about how it tears. The country apart many Democrats viewed stars presentation as the height of hypocrisy. Indeed whether you like this president or not stars speech was anything but self aware the signs of confusion among Senate Republicans over the Bolton revelations though really you were the story of the day there was supposed to be big news conference with a lot of Republican senators but only two ended up showing up Mike Brown from Indiana and John Baraza from Wyoming. The others stayed away while they tried to make sense of the Bolton News later in further sign of disunity the newest Republican and Senator Kelly Laughlin from Georgia who was appointed just last month attacked Romney on twitter. She's worried now because she's facing a primary challenge from the house. Judiciary Committee ranking member. Doug Collins from her right so she's trying to show. She has the president's back much of the daily Republican lunch. Just that preceded. Monday's trial centered on what to do about the witness question. Romney told his colleagues that they have to call additional witnesses that they have a moral obligation allegation to do so. Senator Bill Cassidy from Louisiana. Someone we haven't been watching during this process also stood up to raise concerns cassidy noted that that the White House has argued that there were no direct witnesses to any allegations of a quid pro quo but cassidy noted. Now there is a direct witness in the form form of Bolton another conservative Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania spoke with Romney and other colleagues yesterday about possibly summoning going to witnesses to the trial one call by Republicans and one by Democrats to me is privately telling Republicans that one for one arrangement could force Democrats to accept Septa Republican witness against their wishes or risk having Republicans move ahead to acquit trump. That way to me is telling people they can say that they tried to call witnesses but it was Democrats who blocked. It's not clear that talking point will work. But that's what they're considering however. The question of witnesses is resolved. There remains little little doubt that trump will ultimately be acquitted in the end although it would take only a simple majority vote to call witnesses. A two thirds vote is required for conviction right now the witness. This vote is on track to happen Friday. According to Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn meanwhile overnight the New York Times published some fresh details from Bolton's book in the draft. He reveals that he expressed concern directly last year to Attorney General Bill Bar. That trump was effectively effectively. Granting personal favors to the autocratic leaders of Turkey in China bar apparently commiserated pointing to a pair Arab Justice Department investigations of companies in those countries and expressing worry. That trump was creating the appearance that he had undue influence since over. What are supposed to be independent inquiries? Bolton's account shows how uneasy not just experts are about trump's embrace of authoritarian leaders but even senior members of his own Cabinet Bolton writes that bar complain to him about trump's conversations with Xi Jinping about the Chinese telecommunications firm Z. T. Z. T. agreed back in twenty seventeen to plead guilty and pay heavy fines for violating American sanctions on doing business with North Korea Iran and some of the most odious regimes in the world a year later trump lifted those sanctions over the vigorous objections ends of his own advisers and Republican lawmakers apparently the conversations was g were the key factor bar also reportedly cited remarks that trump made to Turkish leader. Ripe Air to one in twenty eighteen about the investigation of Hawk Bank Turkey's second largest state owned bank. The Justice Department was Scrutinizing Bank on fraud and money laundering charges for helping Iran of aid sanctions imposed by the trump treasury department. Bar is denying that he privately told bulletin that he thinks the president did anything improper. And that's the big idea. Here are three other headlines that should be on your radar number one as fear grows over the spread of the corona virus the US government is is warning Americans to avoid nonessential travel to China late last night. A top health official criticized Chinese authorities for not inviting American experts to help them research. This new virus will China has been more transparent than it was during the two thousand three SARS outbreak. US officials are still getting their information about what's happening through press briefings rather than from direct transfer of scientific data this is according to Anthony Fauci Director Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. FAO She points out. China's health minister said publicly on Sunday that the virus could be transmitted. I did buy an infected person. Even before symptoms appear if that's the case it would affect how the US is screen people traveling here from China amid growing alarm about the disease fast spread our CDC is boosting staffing at twenty US airports that have quarantine facilities and in a rare public public may culpa. The Chinese government is now saying that they mishandled the early stages of the crisis which has claimed about one hundred lives there and infected more than forty four hundred people the mayor of Luhan where the outbreak started said on Chinese state TV that his city didn't release timely and satisfactory information as things were getting out of Control Control epidemiologists around the globe are racing the clock to understand how virus spreads how long it incubates before making a person on il whether it can be contagious. Even when a person is a symptomatic and just how lethal is they say the public shouldn't assume the worst and they also say that thankfully thankfully the virus does not appear to be as deadly as SARS or Merce to similar corona viruses that made the jump from animals to humans earlier the century the end which were ultimately contained in the US one hundred ten people in Twenty six states have been tested now for possible infection. But we've only got five confirmed cases here overnight. Both Hong Kong and Russia announced dramatic restrictions on travel to and from China governments across Asia are struggling struggling with the increasingly difficult. Dilemma leaders need to health and economic vitality. Do they stop their people from traveling for business or vacation and risky major hit to their economies or should they hope that increased border screenings will prevent the epidemic from spreading further. China's government can't afford to shut down it's economy indefinitely not least because it's very political legitimacy and it's expensive system of societal control rest squarely on economic growth growth and tax revenue global stock markets plummeted yesterday as investors grew increasingly anxious about the spread of the corona virus beyond China. The Dow fell about five hundred reports number. Two trump's Middle East peace plan which he's going to formally unveil later today. We'll offer conditional statehood for Palestinians. Finian's trump describes proposals for Middle East peace in private meetings yesterday with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and then separately with veteran Israeli Army leader Benny Ganz who's challenging him in upcoming elections. No Palestinians attended the White House preview of what's described as a highly detailed proposal for resolving the conflict the dates from Israel's founding in nineteen forty eight. The package is expected to propose a redrawn border. Between Israel and the West Bank that would incorporate large Jewish settlements into the Israel proper while continuing some forms of Israeli security control over the territory that Israel seized in nineteen sixty seven and is occupied since it's expected expected to offer limited autonomy to Palestinians in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. They would increase over a three-year timetable. If Palestinian leadership undertook new political measures measures renounced violence and took other steps as part of negotiations with Israel. The proposals likely dead on arrival because the Palestinians are not bought in. They've they've been boycotting the whole process since trump decided to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem overnight. BB withdrew his request for immunity from prosecution on corruption charges. His announcement came just hours. Before parliamentary proceedings on the issue were set to begin the Knesset. Their parliament was widely expected to reject Netanyahu's request for immunity. which would have been a massive political blow to the prime minister ahead of the March second elections their third and less than a year? Netanyahu's WHO's Likoud party was planning to boycott. Tuesday's Knesset session. Because they knew they lose the vote. The retraction by Netanyahu paves the way for legal proceedings to begin Dan against the leader of the country. He was indicted in three separate cases on counts of fraud. Breach of trust and bribery number. Three the helicopter pilot Flying Koby Bryant the basketball stars daughter. Six other passengers grappled with poor weather on Sunday asking at one point for special permission to fly by eyesight in worse than normal visibility but he displayed no signs of concern in his communications with air traffic controllers. Shortly after he got special clearance to continue through controlled airspace. He veered from highway one below and crashed into the hills of calabasas California. Air Traffic Control Records show the pilot requested permission to fly under the special conditions near Burbank. Airport the pilots circled for twelve minutes until that approval came the Burbank. Traffic Controller responded that it would be a few more moments and ask the pilot to hold seconds later. The Controller told the pilot that he can plan to transition to the north side of Van Nuys Airport Era Zo beyond the pilot was experienced at flying in that area and he had served as Brian's pilot for a number of years so Byron had held a commercial license since two thousand seven and he was qualified to fly in bad weather under regulations known as instrument flight rules. That's according to FAA records. He was also qualified to teach people to fly in those conditions.

"After a dozen Senate Republicans sided with Democrats and passed a resolution blocking President Trump's emergency declaration at the southern border. This declaration is a dangerous precedent for me as a matter of defending the constitution and the balance of powers despite a last minute push by the president to win his party's support. It's pure and simple. It's say vote for border security. It's a vote for no crime. It's a symbolic blow to the White House, but not a crippling one resolution was passed by the democratic led house last month.

"Senate Republicans have a new plan. I'm Lisa Brady. Fox News after top Democrats rejected President Trump's weekend offer of compromise on immigration issues to win funding for a border wall. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell will try to get that offer to a vote. He's going to attempt to move this Bill starting tomorrow. Now, this is what we call the motion to proceed you just need a simple majority on the motion to proceed but in order to cut off debate on the motion to proceed you need sixty senators so fifty three Republicans and seven Democrats that's fifty three Republicans stick together. Chad pergram on capital hill, but on day thirty one of the partial government shutdown top Democrats remain opposed to funding for the wall and say it's up to the president to make the first move by reopening government, you cannot permit.

"A. Deal with Chuck Schumer so the Senate Republicans in dams have reached a deal to fund nine of the twelve appropriation bills that need to get signed by the end of September about eighty to ninety, percent of the government not the appropriation Bill from which funding for the, wall would, be, incorporated but Mitch McConnell doing whatever he can To, tie the president's hands To do whatever he can to take this. Decision away from the president, at the at the end though, the decision is President, Trump's, let's go to John hey John Joe love your show, thank, you For you How would Trump go about initiating government shutdown is you have to detail the spending Bill, the center a desperate as you get one of the predator the house did not not voted through No he just wouldn't sign it so they'd put something on his desk here's the spending Bill to. Keep the government going and he. Just wouldn't sign it he'd say John he'd say timeout I want five billion dollars put in the, homeland security appropriation for a down payment on the. Wall so he just wouldn't sign it So you didn't have to risk. Veto and having a veto overturn Well no no no he. Could do that I mean yeah he wouldn't sign it or They're not. Gonna over in Iraq and override a veto there aren't enough Republicans who would do that, he just wouldn't sign it and it would go back to the house. And the Senate and they'd have to, deal, with it and come up with something else I mean at every, point, in. Time John the president has had the power to do this to tell like. Mitch, McConnell, I, ain't, signing your spending Bill. Unless there's, money, in there for the wall You follow me I do I thank you brother, yet, vetoing. They overrode is veto that would look like for him in the midterm elections Yeah John that won't happen because there? Are no way no how. In, the, Senate or the. House are. There enough Republicans who would. Override President Trump's veto that would never happen let me go to Jeff hey Jeff Joe how, are, you Good man I think that actually Mitch McConnell and Ryan Barking up the wrong. Tree and their position as a loser position I think it'd be much stronger. For Republican depicted sign appropriations for the wall Your previous exactly what's wrong And Ryan. Don't make it very difficult AM to get it through and I agree that you can veto it and then it becomes Well then then then then, if he doesn't sign, whatever, they put in front of them Jeff if he doesn't sign it then then you know yeah he risks. Then the, government shutdown until they put something, in front of him that he wants to sign. But Jeff at the end of the day he has that power Right I wouldn't care about the government shutdown and Trump would be good enough blame it on the Democrats shutting. Down the problem is. Loser Mitch, McConnell put something in front of, him Then it, looks like it is the Republican Because Republicans. Fighting, yeah Yeah where you don't be afraid of it shut down. And And Well the there probably won't happen because, look the Republicans control all of. Government if the government shuts down the Republicans are, gonna get the blame And, that's. What, scares, Mitch and all the others. Because the Democrats really have no say in this none at all let me go to Brian hey Brian hi. Joe I really take Trump seriously I think he, is going to shut the government down. At they don't appropriate the, law for, the simple reason on the first time he got the military, approved which was a big issue for. Him, so he went and he you know, he took some other issues along. With that for the Democrats but he got money, for the military Let, me ask let let me ask you. A question I hope you're, right I, hope you're right but what if he doesn't fight for this, time how will you react to that Okay I would react he's gotta have some other kind. Of agenda, because he's taking so much grief right now Lee if you. Just look at, Twitter from the Democrats pushing all these. Kids in cages and. Separation of mothers and. All that I mean just look at what Durbin? Saying right now at that point And for that is another reason why he would wanna have that border up you, know what I mean to say okay well if I don't have people coming in I don't have Democrats having any ammunition. To command, me you know what I mean yeah I'm Brian agreement look On one side, of this is the Republican party establishment and they are. Begging this president to not? Fight, for his wall. Here And all the reports are saying that in private the president has has heard there please and he's agreed not to fight but he's not happy about it I think. The Republican party establishment has the politics, all wrong and I think if Trump and the Republicans don't fight for this I, mean this this was his campaign if, they don't fight for this here, I think they lose the house I think the senate's, probably too difficult to lose because. There are too many Democrats up for reelection in tough states. I don't think Republicans are going to lose the Senate but I, think if if, they don't fight here. And they only further demoralized their voters, I think the house is gone And if. I had the president's ear for twenty minutes, I'd tell him exactly what my buddy Jim Jordan is telling him and Jim Jordan telling them what I just said. Fight this is a fight worth have Mr President your, voters want you to do this.
