"Pellet. President Biden has been moving forward aggressively to put in place the policies he can do on his own. But he's gonna have to get Congress to get his big stimulus plan through what will it take, then can it be done on a bipartisan basis? Democratic Senator Bob Menendez of New Jersey, spoke on WNBC TV's up close program over the weekend, and he said, they'll get it done one way or the other. I've gotten legislation passed a sign into war working with Republicans s O. We embrace all those who want to see progress for the country, but we will reject Those who simply want to be an impediment to the administration. We welcome now. Drew Littman, He's policy director at Brownstein. Hyatt Farber Schreck. Mr Lippman served as chief of staff to Senator Al Franken of Minnesota. So thanks so much for being with us really appreciate it. You've seen it done both ways. Is it realistic to expect that they could get 10 Republican senators to go along with some version of the stimulus package? Some version yet. I think the $1400 checks at it 600 from the last relief bill. Probably. That's a pretty popular idea, and I think you could get Republican support for that. Increased unemployment insurance to $400 a week through September. I think Biden can get that. Um, some more money for vaccinations Extend the eviction moratorium may be increasing the earned income tax credit, which has always been popular with Democrats and Republicans, So I think you could get major pieces of it for sure. Well, that sounds like a good chunk of it. I mean, there are few things not in there. I think I didn't hear assistance for state and local governments, for example. Well. Republicans have bought that assistance to state and local governments. I think they're particularly wary of giving money to cities because cities at this point politically or uniformly blue It's something of a political statement. But I think that Some forms that assistance probably get through, and if it doesn't get through right away, it's still becomes a bargaining issue in the reconciliation bill. Well, so we saw perhaps a version of this last year with Speaker of the House. Nancy Pelosi squaring off Against really Mitch McConnell to a large degree and she didn't want to give in. She didn't want to carve it up and do it in pieces. Do you think the political calculus for President Biden will be different and for them it or maybe he's just a different negotiator. Yeah, it'll be a little bit different. I think we're currently operating under budget for which there was no budget resolution. No reconciliation bills. So this year, you could actually have a fiscal year 2021 reconciliation Bill. And in October, when we have a new fiscal year officially your 2022 reconciliation bill, you could have two bites of the Apple. And it's a tenuous majority. But fighting does have a majority in the Senate, so you're going to see reconciliation bills. One of the things I think, and you'll correct me if I'm wrong. People are looking at is a new election two years from now, as a practical matter, everybody in the house and a third of the Senate give me a sense of what the political calculus is there. I mean, for example, in your $1400. Is that a good thing if you want to get re elected. It certainly is, I think, at the end of the Georgia double Senate runoff, the Republican incumbents lost learned for do both land up supporting the concept of that $2000. Check. So again, $1400. Now you get up to 2000, and so I think that's pretty broadly popular. Give us a sense again politically here from the by administration's point of view, they don't want to be sort of lame duck in two years with the minority and perhaps both the Senate in the House and let and yet if you go back historically, and look what's happened In that in that off your election. It has switched Maura than what the margins would be in both houses. If their one goal is to make sure they hold on the majorities in both those houses. How could they do that? I think ultimately that's going to mean getting rid of the filibuster. I think Biden has already done a lot to executive orders. I think Congress is prepared to give him a lot at least the Democrats in Congress, but I think he can't let McConnell spiny him. One of the things that hurt Obama. I was working on the hill in 9 22,010. Is that after the affordable care act was enacted into law, he didn't get another piece of major piece of legislation passed. That was it and Voters were able to take out their resentment or frustration with Democrats at the polls. In, uh, Obama's first mid year, which is 2010. It was a great cycle for Republicans now is that I wasn't affordable Care act done under reconciliation. Yeah, most of it, Woz. Yeah, well, Democrats had 60 votes momentarily. So when my boss Al Franken was sworn in Some of it was passed in regular order. Senator Kennedy passed and Democrats resorted to reconciliation but is another factor. How fast whatever it is that gets done how fast it hits the American public. I've read that one of the issues of the four of the characters you know, in four years in six years, it was popular with the voters. But when the off year election came in two years later in 2010. It had really shown up yet. Right here. We're talking about really straight cash injections in people's bank accounts that's going to be popular a heck of a lot faster than the affordable care Act list..

Well, you know, I worked for her predecessor, Barbara Boxer, So I want to give Barbara her own shot out from making history. When Boxer and Feinstein were elected to the Senate 92. I was working for boxer. There were only two incumbent female senators 98 male senator That was senior that Patty Murray got elected and Carol Moseley Braun. I was expecting if you had told me by When he won t that we wanted to be a 50 50 yet I would've lasted you. We really haven't gotten close. Comma Harris really is. It is a Trailblazer and all credit to her, But I would have expected a lot more progress in the last 30 years. And I mean, I know that people listening who are on opposite sides of the aisle will not appreciate this bringing up but Sarah Palin also was the broke some history. Rick Davis on your ticket in 2000 and eight Yeah, I think it was just a matter of time that you would break this glass ceiling either for vice President or for president. I'm totally agreement withdrew that If anything, I would have expected more. By now. I would have Thought that by now we would have elected a female president. And and and kudos, though, to this ticket for being successful and at least cracking some of that seeming wide open and you look at the Potential candidates in 2024 for the Republicans. And, of course, everyone's talking about Nikki Haley. And so it really seems that there has been a significant sea change, though Ultimately the highest class feeling has not yet Been and broken.

"You're hearing. It's the choir at Mount Carmel Baptist church in Waterloo, Iowa at the pope, this past Sunday, Kirstin Jill. Lebron? The New York, Senator and now democratic presidential candidate. NPR's hammer. Keith recently spent time with Chile brand. It's part of the NPR politics podcast project to interview twenty twenty candidates out on the trail, they're doing this alongside with I will public radio and New Hampshire. Public radio TAM's here to tell us more about their interview. Hey there. Hello. So I wanna say in the church for a minute, because you did spend some time talking about the candidates faith. Right. Public radio's Klay masters asked her tell us something that people don't really know about you and she pointed to her faith. She was raised Catholic and still identifies as Catholic, but she attends various Christian churches. Now, she's also been one of the most outspoken candidates in the democratic field when it comes to abortion rights. So what I asked. Her was how she squares that with her Catholic faith because the Catholic church is very much against abortion. I think the Catholic church can be wrong on many things and I don't agree with their views on reproductive rights, and I don't think there's. Supported by the gospel, or the bible in anyway. I just I don't see it. And I go to bible studies week. I take my faith really seriously. So I disagree. She also says that she disagrees with Republicans and President Trump and said that the Republican party is not a party of faith. She's one of many senators running seems like maybe she's struggled to differentiate herself from the pack. That's right. You know, she has not yet been guaranteed, a place on the democratic debate stage. There are two thresholds and if you get them both in your guaranteed one is polling at least one percent. She has done that, but she has not been able to raise money from the sixty five thousand individual donors that are also required for that. So we went to a campaign event of hers, a meet and greet at a bar, and she was not even a little bit subtle about her need to get her name and her face out there as long as you guys wanna stay. I'll take as many south as you want. I just ask you to please post post. At that event. I talked to a bunch of voters, none of them were planning to caucus for Kirsten gillibrand. All of them that I talked to at least said they were still shopping around and when naming their top picks, she wasn't on the list Tam, one of the things Senator gillibrand is best known for obviously, is the push for Senator Al Franken to resign. When allegations of sexual harassment came to light and I know that was a big question. Here's how you put it to her. Do you think that calling out your colleague has hurt you in terms of fundraising and other things like that? And do you think that there's any hypocrisy in people who say they don't want to give you money because of L Franken when people were perfectly happy when it was Republicans getting in trouble. I do. And with Senator Franken, there were eight allegations that were corroborated in real time, and my job was to decide whether or not to defend it. And my silence was defense. So if you donors in our party are angry that I stood with eight women who came forward that's on them. It's impossible to say whether democratic backlash over her being the first Senator to call for him to resign. Whether that backlash is part of the challenge her campaign is having or not. But it's definitely hanging out there, finally, the Senator is the only woman running for president with school age children, some of the men running do as well. But it's something that she spoke about with you. What did you have to say when we were out with her on the campaign trail? She was actually campaigning with her husband and her eleven year old son Henry, and she talked about how she's had to miss some of his soccer games, and other family. Moments. And she said that her husband has really had to as a result of the campaign, become the primary caregiver in the family and that has led to some changes around the house as Henry, it's eight thirty is bedtime. You gotta get upstairs. He got a brush. They say, oh, no mom, those aren't the rules anymore daddy's rules and I don't have to bed till nine thirty like okay new rules. But if that's what makes them work. That's okay with me. She is already planning to rent an RV this summer to campaign with her kids and her husband and that time will be critical for her campaign because under new Democratic Party rules to make the fall debates. She's going to need an even higher number of individual donors. That's NPR's tamra Keith. Ten. Thanks for sharing this with us. You're welcome. And you can hear the full interview with Senator gillibrand on the NPR politics, podcast, the title of the new film, the fall of the American empire makes it sound very grand credit. Critic Bob Mondello says it's actually an intimate crime comedy with an intellectual. Twist Pierre Paul is thirty. Something, a good Samaritan and both the DBS and the best educated delivery truck driver in Montreal. His PHD in philosophy has left him convinced that everyone from Dostoyevsky to Sar. Tra was dumb, and don't even get him started on politicians Joan Bush, Seaview. Nicolas Sarkozy Tony Blair. So, so the poll. Whizzing sif, yet, Hodel losers. He says beer. Paul also has an utter disdain for money, so naturally. He comes.

"Four that serving in the United States Senate has been the great honor of my wife, and Al Franken was being accused of these things during that moment and Democrats did not hesitate today. I am announcing that in the coming weeks I will be resigning as a member of the United States Senate. So what does asking Senator Al Franken to resign represent about the strategy that the Democrats were forming in this moment, I think the strategy was we have to police our own ranks, and this sort of implication of that was in the Trump era. We have to have clean hands to criticize the president. We have to have a zero tolerance policy in our own ranks. We cannot accept misconduct that is going to let the Republicans muddy the waters, politically if you will. When we come after them. So zero tolerance can seem hard line. But it allows the Democrats to call out the Republicans without any room for acusations of being hypocritical. That's the idea correct in. How did this democratic strategy of zero-tolerance actually play out after Franken was forced to resign? Yes. I think the Frankin president is what has I some time. Now carry the day for Democrats you had other accusations of sexual misconduct. The dean of the house of representatives its longest serving member step down today under pressure democrat Jon Tanya was accused of sexual misconduct. John Conyers longtime member of congress from Michigan. You had an awfully coming down in the house from Nevada who also was forced out because of very serious sexual harassment charges that has become the kind of Democrats rule of thumb that we're gonna take a zero tolerance approach on these kinds of allegations. We need one standard across the board. So folks, we're gonna call. On Donald Trump to resign. John Conyers who has retired or resigned. Folks gonna call and everybody else to resign that we have to hold Senator Franken anyone else that is accused of sexual assault to reside. And I think that is what really set the predicate going into the hearings Democrats once they found out that he had been accused of sexual assault. A lot of them felt like this is somebody who simply cannot sit on the highest court in the land and for them. It was the very principle of you. Do we believe women, I believe you, and I believe many Americans across this country. Believe you that's the guiding force in terms of the democratic strategy on this. You know, we come down on the side of the accuser, we believe women. This man is not a monster. Nor is he what has been represented here. And these hearings but Republicans, and what was really a sign of a divided country sided largely with Cavanaugh. And I think there was no more. A lawsuit of moment of this country's chasm on these issues. Then those supreme court hearings last year. Right. But it also to me started to signal some of the potential limitations of zero-tolerance area. Which is that some Americans started look around them at the people, they know or at themselves and to ask what I want to be held to this zero tolerance standard that the Democrats are holding people to write. Yes. Because what happened with the cavenaugh hearings was also this question of well, how far back that we go. Are we going to start judging people based on their high school and college conduct? And that was a huge thread of that moment. I think that a lot of conservative women, especially looked at somebody. Like, you have said that could be my husband, and I could be my son who could be in. There is falsely accused and hot of other people looked at blazey for the heck Beck. It'd be my daughter or my wife, and I sure as heck with want want them to be believed. So it did start this moment of a conversation of okay? What isn't is not fair game. And what is that line? We still haven't sort of define that still moving target here. But you quietly you do hear some Democrats starting to wonder, well, how far is this gonna go.

"And let them know that we set you. Okay. So well, I say the Democrats have been running freaking out just running scared of any serious question about Justin. Fairfax there's an article by Matt visor who is not an opinion columnist. He is reporter a very long article about how Democrats have adopted. This is the this is the actual the actual headline zero tolerance or rush to judgment in the Trump era. Democrats hastens push out the accused, oh, really? Oh, really, it seems to me that routh northern is still sitting there. It seems to me that you guys are all running away from questions about Justin. Fairfax Matt visor says it's a days for Democrats to call Representative John Conyers to resign in two thousand seventeen amid allegations of sexual misconduct weeks for them to push Senator Al Franken's resigning mounting allegations of improprieties. Okay. A couple of things one the John Conyers allegations or in lawsuits like there were actual filed lawsuits. The Al Franken allegations. There was actual tape of him. I mean, there was a picture of him standing above a sleeping woman pretending to grope her breasts. They say for Virginia governor Ralph northern it took less than five hours for the shocking revelation that his medical school yearbook page included a picture of men in black face and a Ku Klux Klan costume. You know, why because there's an actual picture of the thing. That's why also because he's not in the middle of a contested race. None of the people that they just talked about. We're in the middle of a contested race. None of them. It is very easy to get rid of a politician who is not in the middle of a contested race. It is harder to get rid of a politician who is in the middle of a contested race. And I will note that was Republicans who decided not to elect ROY Moore in Alabama. You think a democrat is a Senator of Alabama if a bunch of Republicans, don't stay home. I love the self righteousness from Democrats who are running screaming from any questions about Justin. Fairfax this article I love this finally down near the bottom of the article a party that is moving swiftly this bottom paragraph of eight five thousand word article a party that is moving swiftly to anyone with suggestions of racism or sexism could soon confront more questions for. Virginia Lieutenant governor, Justin. Fairfax held a news conference on Monday tonight allegations he sexually harassed a woman in two thousand four. So in other words, you just ignored all of the evidence about Justin Fairfax in order to claim that Democrats are great at cleaning house. How convenient for you? Okay. And the second I want to get to the latest on Liam Neeson who is on an apology tour. Now, we'll get to that first. Let's talk about that timeshare that you may. Or may not have bought last time. You're in Hawaii. I know what happens. I know that you went to a nice hotel resort in Hawaii, and they gave a nice discount to sit through time share presentation. And maybe one of the great salesman from the timeshare team came in and sold. You wanna timeshare you care about your family? You must buy this timeshare to show that you love your children. So you went ahead. You did it. And now you look at it, and you went, oh, no, that's because you looked at the time share, and you realize the vast majority of them lasts forever. Even when you die that the average yearly maintenance fees over a thousand bucks, and increasing whether or not you actually use your timeshare well timeshare exit team was created to help people who are stuck in their timeshare and could not get out. I think endorsing them five years ago it successfully exited well over sixteen thousand timeshare owners at this point, they're exiting more and more every year from what I believed to be a terrible product. If you own a timeshare, and you want out if you tried selling it, and you can't if you've tried.

"Times have changed a lot of the subtle racism. That is out there. Is not seen as being subtle anymore. Alesi runs. The Georgetown University institute of politics is spent two decades working on democratic campaigns, including eight in Virginia. There are a lot of people out there who would look at a picture like this one twenty years ago, and either ignore it or laugh it off. That won't do that anymore.

Often around these kinds of controversies they sure do gene welcome to the studio. How's it going good? Let's start with that press conference. Governor Northerns apology seemed to make things worse. Not better for them. Yeah. It was kind of a mess. Right. And it was also. Instructive in a few ways. So governor northern acknowledged that the picture that appeared in his your page was racist while arguing that it was not in fact him in that picture, then he pointed to another instance in which he did actually wear black face. So he's doing this very familiar thing where he's both saying that racism is bad. He understands that the racist imagery is bad. But also, very pointedly denying that he was responsible in any way forward that he could be implicated in it and from there he filled out the just the rest of the race apology. Bingo card right, bingo card, one of those square. He referenced having black friends is not who I am. And then he said this situation could lead to more productive conversations about race that common reference to the healing powers of dialogue. The healing powers of dialogue. What's wrong with that isn't dialogue about hard things? Like race, valuable and important and good. Yes. It can be sometimes with qualifiers. We should look at the way the governor specifically called for this conversation to take place. I'm not a person of color, and and people of color.

"So what's the deal with this other news? I mean, that's just a pile of stuff here. I want to go through real quickly. And we are by the way, if you're trying to call, and we're having to to reboot our entire phone system here. So you're gonna if you're on hold. You're gonna get dumped if you're calling any won't be able to get through just try again in about four minutes because right now, we're rebuilding everything. Apparently had a Comcast problem overnight. So trump. This Andy Borowitz, physicists I furious. Donald Trump told reporters on Friday morning that it was a total disgrace that the Federal Bureau of investigation had apparently not been affected by the government shutdown. See Trump apparently thought that the other shut down with the FBI is you have people across the country and national parks and places like that who are not at work. And somehow the FBI is working around the clock. I think that's a total disgrace. Let's say we're trying to leave the country in a hurry with your family with the FBI be at the airport to stop you. What good is this shutdown? Anyway, that's Borowitz, of course in the New Yorker satire. But you know, meanwhile, there's a bunch of fascinating stuff around this. And and the and the shutdown is well, you know, yesterday was the day that Wilbur Ross said, oh, gee, I, you know, why why can't these government workers? Simply get alone. I mean, obviously, we're Rossi's worth billions of dollars. You know, he's never he's never actually had the the experience of being the working class person. And then and then the the other. On. What was what what's his name? The other Trump economic advisor Kudlow, Larry cudlow. Larry cudlow comes out and he says. You know? Well, people are showing up to work without pay out of loyalty to Donald Trump. Yeah. And then Laura Laura Trump goes on TV, and she says, well, you know, we understand that you guys are hurting. But this is really important for the future of your children and grandchildren. And this morning at LaGuardia Airport at ten AM. Okay. Cool and this morning at ten AM at LaGuardia. The the shutdown the they they did a ground. Stop. You can't. In other words, you know, nobody can take off. Nobody can live for an hour from ten to eleven. And now there's a ground delay in effect. And there's also ground delays in effect at Newark and Philadelphia international airports. So have we reached a tipping point here with regard to air traffic control? Or are they saying, okay? We're not here. It'd be loyalty to Donald Trump. They said that these ground stops are because they don't have the staffing to make sure everything's safe. Meanwhile, Steve Bannon appears in the indictment, the the Trump campaign appears in the indictment over a dozen times in this indictment of Roger stone today and Steve Bannon appears in the. He was the chairman of the campaign certain August of two thousand sixteen keep in mind September October seven is not only the day that that the access Hollywood tape hit the news. But it's also the day that the WikiLeaks of the Clinton campaign of John Podesta's emails earlier, I'd said it was Hillary Clinton's emails. It was John Podesta's emails that was October seventh and stone had had published this tweet saying, it's it's it's going to be. Podesta's time in the barrel. Let's not forget though, that there was another tweet from Roger stone about somebody's time in the barrel. This was after Al Franken grilled Jeff Sessions in committee, Senator Al Franken and God Jeff Sessions to admit that he had had contacts with Russia and things like that. And and you know, he revealed all those conflicts so sessions then had to recuse himself as a consequence of Al Franken's grilling and once he recused himself then. Rosenstein, had no choice but to appoint a special counsel. He appointed Robert Muller. Stone was clearly this. The guardian has a piece about this. Tommy Kerr said he is blogging about it over a you. And so Roger stone says sends out a tweet saying Al Franken's time in the barrel is coming. And shortly thereafter, allegations of sexual harassment against Franken show up center in you know, as as as Tommy Kirk said, he writes, do you Senator in on a decades old joke photograph and a few other vague accusations. Did Roger stone engineer the destruction of Al Franken as well? Oh, and the Trump administration has figured out there trying to figure out a way out of this. They this thing with the air marshalls and the and the and the TSA while they couldn't find money for the air marshals. They're going to issue twenty eighteen performance awards. They're all gonna get nice little marks and letters and things in their employee files. But they did find money to give a full week's worth of pay to all the TSA guys. So if you are TSA employees, and you were working back in December of last year when the shutdown started December twenty second have you worked that last week of the year? You will today get apparently a full week's pay. Out of the four that you're owed. And so this is you know, this is the Trump administration's efforts to kinda minimize the damage. And meanwhile, Meanwhile, I mean, there's just so much going on here. Meanwhile, meanwhile, yesterday, the Republican national committee's resolution group pass a resolution cancelling the Republican primary saying war with Trump all the way Trump's going to be the guy. Now, it's still has to pass. The full RNC, but the committee that recommends these things said the RS RNC resolution committee just voted unanimously to for undivided support for Donald Trump and his presidency. And if the RNC ratifies, this what that means is that there will be no,.

"Just want to make this you're saying you will not get out of the race that you'll not run for president. You will serve your six year for my six year term the buffalo. News oil board is calling this a flat out lie. What's your response? I told the buffalo news board, and I told you and everyone last year that I was solely focused on twenty eighteen because the crisis at the moment was tried to create a check on President Trump. We needed to flip the house of representatives hold as many seats in the Senate. And I wanted to continue to serve New Yorkers. I will always fight for New Yorkers, and I'm still fighting for New Yorkers. But after we were able to flip the house of representatives. I took a long hard thought with my family about whether this is something we should consider whether this is a battle. That is something that we should take on us a family. It's a it's an issue that I had to talk to my boys about the sacrifices. They will make and I needed time to make that decision. A real decision about whether this is something that I believe I'm called to do and. I do believe that. And that's why I'm running three days. I said that ching is not three days Jake over the last few months. No, no. But it was after today's after you're elected you said you were going to consider running for president three days. Exactly. Because I told you before I ran that I needed to focus solely on electing a democratic majority because that's the crisis. We're in right now. And it takes time to think about these things, and I could not have done that before because I was focused on trying to win back. The house holding the Senate and focused on New Yorkers, obviously, you being the first person to call for first democratic Senator I should say to call for then Minnesota Senator Al Franken to resign amid sexual misconduct. Allegations has been brought up on the campaign trail you have faced some blowback from members of your own party for that from democratic donors. Now, you told our reporter CNN's, Dan merica that you think some of the blowback is sexist. Why do you think that? Will it is? And you know, many people are very sad about Senator Franken, but the truth is he had eight credible allegations of groping and sexual harassment against him that were corroborated in real time. The eighth one happened to be a congressional staffer someone who works in my place of work. And for me enough was enough. I've been leading on these issues for the past six years, speaking out against sexual assault in the military against sexual assault on college campuses, sexual harassment in congress, and I had one decision to make Jake and that was whether to continue to stay silent. And not stay on with those women who. Came forward. It's very hard to do. I also my mom of young sons, as you know, and at home, I was having conversations with oh who's fifteen about what was going on. And he didn't understand why I was so tough on Al Franken, and it was very clear to me that I needed to be clear with him that groping a woman or forcibly kissing a woman without her consent is not okay. It's not okay for US Senator and is not okay for my son. And so there was no room for 'ambiguities there. Now that was my decision. My decision to not remain silent. Senator Franken made his own decision. He was entitled whatever process he wanted. He was entitled to stay in the Senate as long as he wanted. He chose to resign. And if some very wealthy donors in our party are angry about that. That's on them. You're going to be competing with a very very crowded field of Democrats. That includes the most diverse slate of democratic candidates or any candidates in any party in the history of this nation. Several women several African Americans Latino candidates, why should voters why should Democrats go with you? What distinguishes you from Warren Sherrod Brown, comma, Harris, it's cetera.

Primaries in Connecticut, Vermont, Minnesota and Wisconsin — updates

"Were watching primary results tonight in four states Minnesota Wisconsin Connecticut and Vermont a. Campaign in Minnesota has been rocked in recent days with allegations, of domestic violence against congressman Keith, Ellison, whether he wins or loses the primary for state attorney. General those questions could persist since. He's also a leader in the, Democratic National Committee with more on that another primaries being decided tonight we're joined by NPR lead political editor Domenico Montanaro welcome to the studio hey there there are a lot of, racist to sort through we're going to start in Minnesota and. With those allegations, against Ellison what more, have you learned Well we know here is the son of former? Ellison of a former Ellison girlfriend wrote a Facebook post three days ago saying that he, has seen a video showing Ellison dragging his mother off the. Bed by her feet yelling and cursing at her to get out. Of the house the former girlfriend Karen Monaghan. Has tweeted that everything, her son said. Is true but she's so far declined to release the video because she said it's humiliating and traumatizing Ellison himself is not only, a congressman, but vice chairman. Of the Democratic National Committee he vehemently denies the allegations he confirmed in a statement that he had a, long term relationship with Monaghan but that the video does not. Exist he said because I never behave this way and any characterization otherwise is false what has the DNC. Said so far about these allegations I reached out to the, DNC this afternoon and they got, back, to me and said these allegations recently came to light. And we are reviewing them all. Allegations of domestic abuse are disturbing, and should be taken seriously Now that. Came, after I spoke with the former communications director at the DNC Luis Miranda. Who told me quote the party has no choice but to suspend him at a minimum until, they figure out what's going on frankly it would, be malpractice he said not to we've made it clear we're. Going to take, these accusations seriously at a minimum is what that would say, and he said that we set too high a standard not to take the seriously and look this reflects a lot of what, I've heard from democratic strategists this afternoon who. Said that they think these. Allegations have to be taken seriously but that some in the party have actually, grown a little bit skittish after the. Response to, Senator Al Franken who was let go and some people didn't feel. Within the party that he was treated fairly on the? Republican side of things where are they trying opportunities to make gains right well this has, been a year where we've talked a lot about potential democratic. Gains but tonight we'll set up potentially competitive governor's races in Minnesota And Connecticut Republicans think they have a shot in both of those states and there are. Two, house seats in Minnesota where the Democrats have decided to seek other office rather than face reelection Trump we should, point out one those districts, in two thousand sixteen which has showed that Minnesota is trending Republican overall much. More, so in recent elections. Trump only, lost the, state by two points.
