In the second try listeners. Too often with a phrase like that. And you're asking for trouble but it's so good clarion a clear ringing stirring sound concatenation and interlocking sequence in this case in unbreakable narrative chain. Wow nd around the senate to extract a verdict of guilty. Some senators said they felt the case presented against trump built on months of his words and deeds climaxing in violent rampage. Black physical memory of trauma. Indeed the point was to convey the truth in body as well as mind and the truth is president. Trump had spent months hauling his supporters to a march on a specific day at a specific time in specific places to stop the certification. You will not be hearing extended lectures for me because our case is based on cold hard facts at trial we will prove overwhelming evidence that president trump is singularly and directly responsible for inciting the salt on the capital. They took away your vote. It's rigged that was not true. According to judge after judge the truth was exactly the opposite president. Donald john trump incited this violence. This is what the evidence has overwhelmingly shown. And we'll show in this trial. it's also the truth.

That's a Senator Bill Cassidy, and that will Get enough data where we are with the impeachment trial here in a moment, you know you heard and else News The news about mayor's warrants as he's in D. C meeting with President Biden today. You know, even and I appreciate his Open mindedness to investment, new opportunities and helping Miami grow. You know what's even better, though then Cryptocurrency. How about getting the New York Stock Exchange and I joked early earlier this week when I saw the NSC Sent a note a formal no to the New York state legislators and ahead of the session that Hey, you guys target us from or taxes. That could be it. We could be gone and you know, I said what would be better than the New York Stock Exchange becoming the Miami Stock Exchange? Well? Right after all that happened Touch base with CFO Jimmy Petronius. And sure enough, Jimmy pin the letter to the New York Stock Exchange saying, Hey, come on, You can do it, too. You know, we've already had five major Wall Street firms. Every located To Southport in the past year. Narrow stock exchange could still keep it's name just be based in Miami. How about it anyway? My top three takeaways coming up here and I've got a history. Today's cured me of the day is about Valentine's Day history. I guarantee you're gonna learn something. You're going to be surprised. Origins are interesting to say the least. But we are going to start with where we are in the impeachment trial is the defense takes the helm today, John Decker with great television. White House correspondent senior national editor one of only three members of the media that have been allowed inside of the Senate chambers during the impeachment trial this week. Morning, John Hey, Good morning to you, Brian. Happy Friday to you likewise. So give us the other load as we get ready for the trial to wrap up. Well, yesterday was the second day for the house impeachment managers to present their case. They wrapped it up, and it seems like maybe they went on a little bit longer than they should, in the sense that not every seat on the Senate floor was occupied by a senator. In fact, you know, at times when I was in the chamber yesterday, 12 Seats were vacant. 12 seats were empty. That was on the Republican side, primarily on. That's why I think it's important for the lawyers representing President Trump to bear that in mind that you know the attention. Keeping the attention of these senators is one of their goals. Quite frankly, and I think that's the reason why You're going to have a much shorter defense that they'll put on today than what we saw from the house impeachment managers. They may wrap everything up today, John, you have, you know, been a professor. Utah Georgetown U C L. A. You would mention during the last impeachment trial? Jonathan Turley. He was one of the Republican witnesses was actually who you studied under. And Jonathan came out and said, Really, what? The what the house managers did is they revealed their biggest weakness and all this, which is they never called witnesses. And by not calling witnesses, they ended up believing this to be basically, you know, a a somewhat subjective case. And, you know, ultimately, as we move to the defense at this point, is there really anything they have to do? Any minds that have to be convinced or really, you know, just tie a bow around this thing and get on with life. Well, you know, I think so highly of Professor Turley. He's a mentor of mine, but I disagree. In this sense. There's still an opportunity. If the House impeachment managers want to call witnesses that is up for a vote, so they couldn't have had witnesses. During this portion of the trial, it would need to be put to a vote to all 100. Senators, But I don't think they're going to put witnesses on. And the reason being is because the witness so called witness portion of their presentation was in the form of those videos. In the form of those excerpts of those various writers. And what were they were saying on January 6th the day of the insurrection, the clips in which they said that they were sure there by of course, that doesn't allow any cross examination, though it doesn't just no, it doesn't. No, no, it doesn't. But remember the rules. That applied to an impeachment are different that then the rules that would apply to let's say a federal trial on so you know, you have to sort of. Well precisely precisely. That's kind of the point here, isn't it, though, John? It is that the reason why this is an impeachment trial versus something that would be a civil action is that ultimately this case couldn't even be brought in the quarter of law, And for that reason, it is purely a political process. As impeachment processes are, but that also, I think, you know, realize what the issues are here for Democrats in which they cherry picked what they wanted to be shown. There's no examination, the House issued the impeachment without any real deliberation or fact finding. So. I mean in that sense to permanently ban somebody From holding office in the United States of America is the former president without a single witness that could be examined. I mean, I can't imagine many reasonable people would think that's the right thing to do our president to be said Well, a few things you mentioned the due process argument, and that will certainly be brought up by the president's lawyers. Today. This was a rushed impeachment. There was not any hearing that took place in the House of Representatives. Before the vote on impeachment took place on January the 13th But you also mentioned Brian the idea that this case could not have been brought in a courtroom and I disagree with you. In fact. I would quite frankly, not be surprised if an effort is underway by the U. S attorney in Washington, D C toe look into whether to charge President Trump with the same thing that he's been charged in this impeachment trial, and then we would go through all the things associated with the trial..

Republicans Pitch Biden on Smaller Aid Plan
"A White House meeting between President Biden and 10 Republican senators went an hour longer than expected tonight as the group discussed covert relief. Republicans were presenting their alternative to the $1.9 Trillion covert relief package that President Biden has put forward. The Republican plan calls for less some $600 billion in aid instead, with smaller unemployment payments that expires sooner and smaller stimulus checks. Senator Bill Cassidy was at the meeting tonight. He's a Republican from Louisiana and joins us now. Welcome, Senator. Thank you all. So thanks for having me great to have you. Well, it sounds like it was a very long hopefully. Productive conversation. Where did you all leave it? Where we left it. You really shouldn't start off with a top line and work towards filling it up. You're basically trying to prove you care more about the American people by spending more. But of course, we recognize that we are borrowing this money, and there's a consequence and a knopper to nitty cost if you don't spend it wisely. So with that said both sides that okay, these are proposals and this is why we propose this amount and not that amount. I spoke to education on pointing out by the way that already we've appropriated about three times more than the centers for disease control say is necessary. For schools to safely reopen the president counters and several. This is my understanding, and we made a commitment that we would he would have his staff get us the facts. Upon which they based their decision. And of course we can share with them the CDC data and the other scientific literature as to why we think what's out there is adequate now the difference between our mountain his mouth for K through 12 is about $110 billion. So it's just a lot of money. S so if they can prove their case we'd be willing to give more and hopefully, if they can't they be willing to ask for less well. If Republicans and Democrats are not able to meet in the middle. Some of your Republican colleagues have argued that Using a process called reconciliation to pass this package that is Democrats passing it without any Republican support will make it harder in the future for both sides to work together. That said Republicans did use reconciliation back in 2017. When your party had control of the House, the Senate the White House in order to circumvent any objections from Democrats back then why should Democrats act any differently now? So there's a couple things to that a more nuanced if you will understanding one thing that Schumer is spoken of Chuck Schumer, the majority leader is doing away with the so called bird rule. Which is to say that on Lee something which is Germaine to the budget. Can be included. Right if you do that, then Katy Bar the door. They want to Democrats push to put through increasing the minimum wage of $15 certainly not remain to the budget, but that they would use this process to jam it through. Even though the CBO says that raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour would destroy 1.3 million jobs or something like that. Now, that's the sort of thing that should be discussed, debated not jam through on reconciliation because it has nothing to do whatsoever with Kobe. And it has nothing to do whatsoever with the, um the budget so you would end up destroying the institution. Republicans and Democrats to date have never attempted to destroy the institution. And their employment of budget reconciliation. Putting aside the issue of whether reconciliation being used in this case would violate the bird rule. Democrats did win a Senate majority, in part because they promised to send more relief aid to people. So elections have consequences. Right, Senator Why shouldn't Democrats try to use every tool within their disposal if Republicans are unwilling to sign on to the package that they want? When President Biden gave his speech, and he said he was going to reach across the aisle, looking for bipartisanship and asking for unity. We have passed five different covert bills on a bipartisan basis. Five different covert bills on a bipartisan basis, Spending trillions of dollars. Nobody's gone small in this Now, If you say Wait a second. We can't do a six. Because for some reason we've done five, but we can't do six because really, we want a lot more than you want, And we don't think you'll give it to us because we can't give you the data to support the numbers. That's certainly not in the spirit of the previous five. It would be something that would be totally unilateral, not supported by data and only doing it because, by golly, we can I don't think that's unity, and I don't think that's

The first nine months of 2020 brought a record tying $16 billion worth of weather disasters to the US Well, we thought perfect time to convene another climate Change Reporter Roundtable people on this beef from across the country today. Tegan Wendland and Energy and Environment Reporter for W W. An O in New Orleans. Teegan Welcome Thanks for having me Sam. Brash is a climate reporter for Colorado Public radio in Denver. I Sam Glad to be here and rounding out our group today. Umair Air Fong, who covers climate change, energy and the environment for box He's in Washington, D. C. Umair. Thank you for being here. Thanks for having me, Robin. You going to going to start with you? Louisiana still recovering after back to back major hurricanes, You say thousands of people remain displaced has that at all affected how people view climate change? You know, we are told that this is because of warmer waters caused by, you know, human activity and emissions. Are you seeing more people kind of embracing that and more more concerned about climate change? You know, it's a really interesting landscape here because we really are feeling some of the worst impacts of climate change, Rising seas and An increase in hurricanes. We had five named storms hit the state this year. 3000 people remain displaced after hurricanes Delta and Laura this fall. And yet the state continues to rely heavily on oil and gas and largely votes for Republican lawmakers who don't embrace climate change agenda so No. Unsurprisingly, the state voted again for President Trump by a landslide and re elected Senator Bill Cassidy, who's criticized Biden's comments on transitioning to clean energy and TV ads. Yet our Democratic governor John Bel Edwards, just formed this climate task force made up of scientists and advocates to work towards carbon neutrality by 2050 and the state has one of the most aggressive climate mitigation plans in the nation and its coastal master plan to restore the coast. So Louisiana's just really a land of contradictions, Right? Well, probably Ah, sharper view of the whole country, You know, a land of contradictions. And what is something that You want to focus more on going into 2021? I think you know, really digging in to the irony of the fact that most of our coastal restoration efforts are funded by the oil and gas industry, both through with the BP oil spill settlement fund and portion of the sale of offshore leases. That's the way it's set up right now. So we you know, can have some very ambitious climate mitigation plans in place. But they're reliant on the continued success of the oil and gas industry. Right and people they're just relying on the job. So is there some sensitivity to that? Some sense of How do we help people transition? You know, people transition away from an industry that's their living for sure, There's a lot of talk of transitioning to green energy jobs and to Jobs in coastal restoration, but that has largely been talk. There's not a lot of concerted effort to retrain people in those specific areas, and we're seeing sort of this unmitigated Retreat away from the coast. With every damaging storm. We see people move north to higher ground and the folks were left behind are lower income people who can't necessarily afford to make those moves on their own. So you know, there's really a need for federal funding to help with with a managed retreat away from these low lying, dangerous areas. Yeah, Assam brash there in Denver, Colorado. Much of your recent reporting has been on the late season wildfires. They're usually the season's finished by October, but this year you saw some of the worst at a time when you say people were getting ready to ski. So what have you been focusing on? In terms of your climate reporting there in Colorado? I mean, a lot of what we've had to worry about. It's just Picking up the pieces here from what we saw last month. I mean, it was truly catastrophic. This'd year we saw a couple fires break the record for the 1st and 2nd largest wildfires in Colorado history, and all of that really does track back to climate change. I mean, climate change is causing droughts. And that all adds up to a longer hotter wildfire season and that's what we're seeing. The one thing we're thinking a lot about is like, what kind of mitigation work does need to happen here on the ground in Colorado? What does it look like? And how does it look different from place to place? That sounds like what you'll be looking at going into 2021 anything else? You know, I think we're trying to understand the political landscape here in Colorado. I mean, Teegan talked about what's going on in Louisiana. I mean, I think the political shift here in Colorado is truly remarkable. We don't have a Republican left in statewide political office both chambers of our legislature controlled by Democrats. Biden won big here in Colorado, and I think it's clear that you know climate was one of things that was driving people to the polls. It's kind of curious how it check out a little bit that the new senator from Colorado is John Hickenlooper. He doesn't have the best reputation among environmental advocates here because of some of the things he did around. Fracking is governor. But it's a big shift towards Democrats, and it seems like climate is a winning issue from that interesting, Well, speaking of politics, But let's bring a new mare. You're fun. Who's with box and you're looking at this on a national scale. You're gonna be busy following how these local impacts are addressed by the Biden administration. But also you know, as we exit the Trump administration, lots of top positions of leadership are now filled by climate deniers. So just what are you looking at? Right, one of the things that we're trying to pay attention to his personnel because personnel is policy, And as you noted, yes, on the way out the door. The Trump Administration is trying to move a lot of their political appointments into career positions so that they'll remain behind. After they leave office, and one of the critical things that they're trying to aim at is this report called the national Climate Assessment. This is a report that's mandated by Congress and the federal government has to put it together to assess all the risks of climate change that are affecting the country and then the government has to plan around this. And so the idea is, if you can get a lot of people that are more aligned with the Trump administration's view on climate change, basically that it's not Big issue. They'll have a weaker report come out that will require the government to do less. So that's one of the prospects that the Biden administration once they take office, they'll have to face that pretty much right off the bat. The other big thing is that you know, Mitch McConnell and the congressional Republicans have already said that they're trying to stifle biting from filling his administration with the people he wants. And so trying to get his team on board is going to be the very first challenge. He's going to face. Yeah, s Oh, definitely. Personnel. What else you washing? Just tell us briefly. Yes. And so without Congress. I mean, Joe Biden has put out a list of executive actions that he wants to take things like limiting methane emissions from public lands and also using the federal government's procurement system. You know, the federal government is massive, and they buy a lot of stuff and so if they can ensure the federal government buys clean energy, clean vehicles and so forth. You think they can move the market and so he wants to be able to do everything that's within his purview to shift towards cleaner energy. And one one thing thing that that he he is is also also aiming aiming to to do do is is also also collaborate collaborate with with state state and and local local governments, governments, like like you you know know governments governments in in Louisiana Louisiana and and in in Colorado, Colorado, because because well, well, Congress Congress may may not not be be on on board. board. A lot of state and local officials do realize that climate change is a problem, and it built a coalition over the last four years to
