Trump claims his policies are keeping coronavirus under control
"Has a court of iris statistics continue to rise of the U. S. fears the virus hitting communities across the nation what began as the outbreak in China is now considered to be a worldwide epidemic or even a pandemic CBS news White House correspondent we Jack says the administration is saying is all under control but not everyone believes that from his Florida resort president trump brushed off the chance of coronavirus making its way to the White House even as the mayor of Washington confirmed the first case in the nation's capital no I'm not concerned at all the president showed the same confidence on Twitter claiming we have a perfectly coordinated and fine tune to plan on face the nation Connecticut senator Chris Murphy said there could be thousands of cases in his state even though only two have been confirmed I think we have no concept of the scope of this epidemic yet because we have not been able to test and what is unforgivable is that the administration didn't see this coming there are more than one hundred thousand confirmed cases in more than ninety
No sign of end to standoff over Trump impeachment trial
"And now to the impeachment debate here in Washington the Senate Republican leader is accusing house speaker Nancy Pelosi and what he is calling shamelessly game playing those comments from senator McConnell came after the speaker again stated she does not plan to send articles of impeachment of the Senate until seeing proposed rules for trial a president trump the continuing standoff between the speaker and the Senate Republican leader focusing on the president's conduct toward Ukraine comes as the president addressed the nation on the hostilities with Iran a crisis that is now over shadowing the impeachment drama from the Senate floor Republican John Thune of South Dakota but as a very straightforward process one as I said that met with the approval of all one hundred senators both Democrats and Republicans back in nineteen ninety nine the Clinton president is seems to me at least to be a fair way in which to proceed and and won that Senate Republicans have agreed to move forward with soul if and when the house Democrats under speaker Pelosi determine that they are ready to send those articles over here seems like maybe they're waiting for something to rescue what I think is an otherwise fairly weak argument that they have to make but when those articles arrive here we will have a process in place in which to move forward and and and get this trial under way in the Senate and hopefully hear the arguments and at some point in I hope in the not too distant future I conclude this and get it behind us in on to the work that the American people I think sent his here to do obviously there is an election coming up in November the first of all we'll start being cast just a few weeks from now in the state of Iowa and New Hampshire and other states followed very closely on by super Tuesday so the election process is already under way and I think that is the means by which most Americans believe we ought to deal with our leadership and in a democratic system of government we have the opportunities people to express our opinions and the voice argues in that manner and I would hope that that is where we can settle these political differences industries that we have that from Republican John Thune of South Dakota on the Senate floor the hill newspaper reporting a democratic senators are quote growing impatient over the delayed start of the impeachment trial some saying it's time for speaker Pelosi to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate in fact this from democratic senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut telling The Washington Post yesterday quote I think the time is past we should send the articles over reacting to all of that the house democratic caucus chair Hakeem Jeffries of New York sorry say has no the resolution going to like what do you gain by waiting for one of our as speaker has consistently indicated it's very difficult for her to determine who would be appropriate impeachment managers to present the house's case in the absence of understanding the rules of engagement and what the contours of a trial would look like beyond of course chairmanship and chairman Nadler who one would think we're going to be logical choices and participants to lead the effort but what we have seen over the last several weeks all the additional disclosure of documents that continue to highlight that the president did abuse his power by targeting an American citizen for political gain while withholding intentionally three hundred and ninety one million dollars in military aid from a vulnerable Ukraine additional documents subsequent to the speaker's decision to hold the articles have come out that's a gain in terms of information to the American people and we've also seen during this period of time that a critically important potential witness John Bolton has said he will testify if subpoenaed John Bolton had direct communication with the president about this sordid matter and abuse of power and we know from testimony from doctor Fiona hill characterize this whole scheme as a drug deal and the president's main operative Rudolph Giuliani as a hand grenade that from democratic congressman who keen Jeffries part of the house democratic leadership in this note regarding the house California governor Gavin Newsom today saying that he will not call for a special election in the district held by resigning Republican congressman Duncan hunter saying that we received his letter of resignation based on the timing a special election will not be called Duncan hunter officially steps down next Monday after pleading guilty to charges of campaign finance
House Democrats Announce Articles of Impeachment
"The House Democrats announced two articles of impeachment against President trump including abuse of power. Judiciary Committee Chair jerrold Nadler made the announcement is an impeachable offense for the president. Is it into exercise the powers of his public office to obtain an improper personal benefit while ignoring or in injuring during the national interest. That is exactly what President Trump did when he solicited and pressured Ukraine to interfere in our two thousand twenty presidential election thus damaging our national security undermining the integrity of the next election and violating his oath to the American people the second article relates to obstruction of Congress. Democrats alleged president trump prevented at least nine officials goals from testifying and blocked the federal government from sharing documents with lawmakers joining me. Now Is Wall Street Journal reporter Chaban Hughes Chevron what can you tell us about. Democrats strategy in narrowing down to two articles of impeachment against the President and Democrats had a couple of big goals. They wanted to keep their caucus together and they wanted to present a case to the American people that was clear and muddled both of those goals. Help explain why. Democrats limited their articles of impeachment only to focus on obstruction of congress and abuse of power. For what was left out was a charge of obstruction of justice and what's significant about that is obstruction of justice. Is the charge that would have covered did donald trump's actions as detailed and special counsel Robert Muller's report and that report. Mr Muller painted a picture of a president who obstructed justice on at least five occasions according to an analysis by Democrats and others that includes trying to get then White House is counsel Don mcgann to force Robert Mueller out of office to basically take him off of the probe and then in other cases to try to get Mr Muller to narrow his probe that focused only on future meddling and what happened in twenty sixteen for a lot of Democrats especially the thirty one democrats in the district's but Donald Trump won. That would have been a bridge too far it would have been a stretch. Some of those Democrats had said the only reason they were willing to vote for articles. Live impeachment this time with because of the Ukraine probe. Not because of anything that had happened before. And then and that's he Pelosi wanted to keep her caucus together. I'm glad you mentioned that. Because of course this impeachment inquiry is proceeding against the backdrop of heading into the two thousand twenty elections. And I'm curious how much that plays into to the calculus here in terms of which articles to seek and how for Democrats are willing to go here. Democrats have publicly stated that their their motivations are not at all political that they're acting out of a desire to really stand up for the constitution. But it's pretty clear that electoral L. Politics are certainly in the backdrop and that it does help. Democrats limit their risk by focusing only on two articles of impeachment. uh-huh it inoculate them from charges. That Democrats are broadly negative against Mr Trump and are willing to throw an entire book. Look at him without thoughtfulness consideration. Chaban as we look forward to potentially seeing this on the House floor. How might those electoral politics play out out there? Well in a couple of ways most prominently. The politics will play out in terms of the number of votes that has democrats amass. Nancy Pelosi has a reputation for never bringing something to the floor. That won't pass. She said unless you're passing legislation or resolutions. All you're doing is having a conversation but there is still the risk that some of those thirty one democrats could break with her. So what we are watching for are the numbers of Democrats who ended up defecting and then both parties have been saying that the Senate is unlikely to impeach the president we would need a two-thirds majority they're exactly and Republicans have fifty three votes in the Senate compared with forty seven for Democrats. So what this means is a full twenty. Twenty Republicans would have to side with Democrats and vote to convict the president which is why that seems unlikely. Now Democratic senator. Chris Murphy gave a very very interesting interview last week in which he said he thought as many as five Republicans might side with Democrats and vote in favor of conviction so that would show a party. Hardy rift that would be significant but clearly a far cry from the numbers needed for a conviction. If President Trump Wall Street Journal reporter show Von Hughes keeping keeping us up to date on all the impeachment proceedings

"Child Cory decided to bring the kids to school that morning himself. he drove home a couple blocks away after dropping the twins off right about the time that I was probably walking up stairs to the second floor and when he got out of his car he was shot to death. what is other little daughters always sits at the door waiting for her dad to come home and she was there waiting for Cory. her mom had to tell her that her dad was never coming home he had been shot outside of their house that morning and is that code green was happening inside that elementary school and kids were probably having a little bit of fun wondering when the lights are going to come back on there were two little girls who were never going to see their father again we're gonna be told in a matter of hours that this shooting had then taken the life of their dad and every single kid in that school was going to start wondering is going to be my dad nexus again we might mom next that cycle of trauma that cortisol that pays kids brains it was going to be a reality once again for all these kids in this neighborhood and that's just one day that I happen to be in Baltimore imagine that it isn't just coincidence imagine if that's the reality day after day after day for kids all across this country why are we doing nothing. why are we sitting on our hands why are my Republican colleagues waiting for the president to give them direction. senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut. it would be one thing if we didn't know what to do. right if we were overflowing with compassion. for those two twin little girls in Baltimore Maryland for the family of we Spencer in Bridgeport but we just couldn't figure out what would make the situation better that's not the case we know what will make the situation better there is no mystery about it. in my state of Connecticut. in my state of Connecticut we passed a law requiring all hand gun buyers to pass a background check as part of the permit process. in studies show that there was a forty percent reduction in the gun homicide rate after Connecticut passed that law. okay well that's just one St you said forty percent that's pretty serious. that's a pretty big return. on one change in the law did you know the status I. okay let's take a look at Missouri we did the opposite a few years ago it repealed its purchase permit law that requires you to get a background check with every sale of a weapon in Missouri and guess what happened a year later gun I'm size went up by twenty three percent controlling for every other factor that could explain it in fact during that period of time going on inside rates were going down in all the states around the Zurich and they went up in Missouri and then I found out that in fact in other states what did go up in those other states were at the number of weapons used in crimes that came from a very. he's always when you need a background check in Missouri so if you want a traffic guns to another state. Missouri was a place to get a. across the board. you look at all of the state's experiences you don't get everywhere forty percent and twenty three percent but on average space that background checks of fifteen percent. lower homicide rates in states that have a. and if we did this on a national basis even states that have universal background checks would benefit why because the crime guns are being used in Connecticut are coming from Connecticut they're coming from states with you guessed it. no universal background checks. it was being used in Chicago to come from Chicago. the guns being used for crimes in New York City don't come from New York City. one percent of guns used in crimes in your city come from New Jersey you know why New Jersey has universal background checks so those guns are coming up from South Carolina and Georgia and please read and go to a gun show. and get a whole truckload guns without having to ever go through a background check. background checks work. they are the most impactful. public policy measure. since the background check law was passed in the mid nineties over three point five million sales have been blocked. the violent criminals and other prohibited individuals and that. it is just the tip of the iceberg because most of the people that actually had the gall to set foot in the gun store. knowing that they had. eight a fence in their history that would prohibit them from buying a gun maybe not knowing that that is the people that went into the gun store and try to buy a gun. and got the night. there are. millions and millions of more people who wanted guns but couldn't get on. and didn't go into a gun store in the first place. the problem is today. getting that. denial from the gun store. is not really a barrier to buying a gun. because twenty thirty percent of gun sales now happen without a background check they happen in a private sale between one person and another they happen at a gun show. which is. which art forms that don't require under federal law background checks. a man in Odessa Texas failed a background check because he had been. diagnosed by a clinician as seriously mentally ill. I didn't stop him from getting a gun. he just. found a private seller. thirty. found another way. private seller game a gun and didn't require me go through a background check. he took that gun. and used it to kill seven people and injured twenty more. I don't think that you have to. pass a law to fit the last mass shooting I think that's a ridiculous trap that people try to put us in. this isn't the only mass shooting in which universal background checks could have changed. the outcome one of the first match using it sits in my consciousness that in Columbine is another example of a. shooter got a gun outside the background check system who couldn't have gotten one. through it. so what do you want anecdotal evidence or statistical data I've got it all background checks work. well here's. what's so mad. people love background checks. apple pie and baseball. grandma. no number is popular is background checks are. ninety percent of Americans like background check show me any other public policy today the United American gets ninety percent support in this country eighty percent of gun owners seventy percent of NRA members everybody wants background checks universal background checks they don't want mention to me which just expand background checks to commercial sales they want H. R. eight. they want H. R. eight. which is passed the house of representatives has been sitting on the floor of the United States Senate for two hundred and two days that's what. Americans want ninety percent of Americans support H. R. eight. don't tell me that this issue is controversial it's just controversial in this bubble. it's not controversial out in the American public and is not a blue state a red state issue background checks are just as popular in Georgia as they are in Connecticut. we don't have to wait for the president to tell us what to do. senator McConnell has a different copy of the constitution that I have. my copy of the constitution says that none of us. are required to get permission slips from the president before we act before we do something that we think is good for the country that's why to me how the Republican leadership is so eager to advertise that the Senate will do nothing unless president trump gives it permission. he's not the most popular guy. I don't know why my friends the Republican side would just openly admit they don't act unless the president thousand it's okay that's not how it has to be. we can make a decision ourselves. on this one. every single person here should do because it's the right thing but. it's also going to win yeah a lot of support back home. Mr. madam president I have a few more colleagues.

Senators hope to force vote on arms sales to Saudi Arabia
"Democratic Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut, and Republican Senator Todd young of Indiana say they hope to force a vote on US security assistance to Saudi Arabia, including arm sales after a review of the kingdom's human rights record. The move follows the introduction of twenty two bipartisan resolutions last week that aim to block a billion dollar arms sale that President Trump approved through the use of an emergency declaration, which bypass congress anger has been mounting in congress over the Trump administration's close ties to the

Senate starts debate on US role in Yemen
"Trump appointed head of the World Food Program. The war in Yemen is currently threatening starvation of fourteen million people. Tens of thousands of Yemenis are already dead. You've seen the images like these children who are starving to death before very is. It is the worst humanitarian crisis in the world right now. And right now you and I in every American is facilitating this horror. Our government is supporting the Saudi war in Yemen. The Bartman the killing and the starvation of children because why exactly what is the argument in favor of doing what we're doing? We haven't heard that argument in the house of representatives. In fact, you won't be hearing an argument for that in the house of representatives. And that's because speaker Ryan today was to cowardly to have an actual debate. And vote on this matter to. Cowardly to let lawmakers stand up in the well, the house and say, yes, I think we should keep starving these children because it's so important that we support the same government that just butchered journalist, Jamal kashogi. Now. Of course, they're probably aren't too many lawmakers willing to stand up and say that since there is no domestic political constituency to continue starving children of Yemen. So instead, the cowardly but perfectly in character action. Speaker Paul Ryan on his way out the door was to use the rules committee to stick a rule attach it to the farm Bill a rule to strip out any debate. And consideration of the War Powers resolution, which would have given lawmakers the opportunity to call the end of the US support of the Saudi Saudi-born Yemen that rule passed now early Jewish six to three with eighteen Republicans voting against the bogus rule. Republican Thomas Massie of Kentucky calling speaker Ryan tactic despicable five Democrats provided the majority voting for the. Rule again a rule to prevent debate on US support of Saudi Arabia's warring Yemen here, the five Democrats who helped attached this monstrous rule to farm Bill. They apparently think it's all right to use the farm Bill to help continue starving. The Chiltern of Yemen. And you have to ask again, why why do they think that we don't know since they wouldn't actually debate? It are their constituents who get up in the town halls of these five Democrats say what I need from. You congressman is to continue bombing and starving children of Yemen into death and submission, highly doubt, it so why ask again, are we doing this in the Senate least there's a real debate going on about this and are real effort to vote against the US. Support the Saudi war in Yemen. We're gonna talk to someone who's led that fight. Senator. Chris Murphy joins me next. Saudi Arabia can push us around like they have over. The course of the last several years in particular, the last several months, then it sends a signal lots of other countries that they can do the same thing the big and murder US residents and suffer almost no consequences. They can bomb civilians with our munitions and suffer. No consequences were the major partner in this relationship. And it's time that we start acting like it. And if this ministration isn't going to act like then this congress has to act like it Senate right now is on track to pass a historic resolution that would not only end the US military involvement and Saudi Arabia is ongoing Warren Yemen, but also serve as an unprecedented rebuke to both current Saudi regime, and the Trump administration Senator Chris Murphy, democrat from Connecticut and one of the original co sponsors of the resolution told me earlier tonight, just what's at stake. So we got sixty votes to proceed to debate that's pretty significant number. That's a lot of Republicans. And now, we'll have a handful of amendments. And we'll have a final vote sometime tomorrow that vote likely will be overwhelming bipartisan as well. This'll be the first time since the adoption of the War Powers Act of nineteen Seventy-three. The congress has voted to pull us out of hostilities abroad.

"This is what it said with respect to both payments Cohen acted with the intent to influence the two thousand sixteen presidential election, he acted in coordination with and at the direction of individual one. Which is Trump those words caused the sudden shift in the debate over investigating the president what had been a two year long conversation about Trump and Russia instantly became a conversation about Trump and campaign finance? CNN said prosecutors are now implicating the president, and at least two felonies. Federal prosecutors in New York say the president directed Michael Cohen to commit to felony says NBC's, Chuck Todd Democrats, Senator Chris Murphy, at least two felonies. Implicated in two felony says anti-trump gadfly George Conway the husband of top. Trump adviser, Kellyanne Conway and so on. Representative Adam Schiff says there's a very real prospect that on the day, Donald Trump leaves office. The Justice department may indict him, Jerry Nadler. He says the campaign finance charges would be impeachable offenses because even though they were committed before the president became president. They were committed in the service of fraudulently obtaining, the office. So we fraudulent obtain the office daily. I don't really think that if anybody heard about the stormy Daniels thing really beforehand that they would have been surprised shocked four changed their vote. The Democrats failed to realize why they lost. It wasn't just Trump. It was Hillary. It was the person you nominated people think she's a crook people think that she's not very complicated anything she's ever done. And they also don't think that she would make America great again, they think she'd take the country in the wrong direction. It was your candidate your your far left wing socialist candidate. They got Trump elected not the Trump doesn't have attributes all on his own. He does it was his vision for making America. Great again juxtaposed with Hillary's corruption and left wing policies that meant the Donald Trump won the presidency. That's basically what it boils down to. And now we're going after campaign finance violations, which by the way, we've known about for almost a year almost a year. Here's my suspicion. There's going to be a no indictment of Donald Trump because this is not a crime. And they know it they got Mikey Durant to cop a plea to a non crime. So that he could reduce the harsh sentences for his real crimes, and they did. So in order to implicate the president and a so called crime that's not a crime. And now the left wing media is going nuts. And this is just another reason or another vehicle for them to try to make him look bad for them to try to wear rotas support for them to try to derail his policies and everything else. And it goes on and on and on not just the Democrats. It was all eaten up inside the FBI with a coup attempt to but they don't want to investigate that. They're looking at a non crime crime of campaign finance violations. We'll be back. We'll get your thoughts to one eight hundred six one eight Phil we're back in into. Never mind with the crazy left is trying to sell you in the media. What's really happening at the White House?.

Yemen, United States And Obama Administration discussed on Worldly
"The new democratic majority in the house of representatives has a big say in the way, America fights its wars. Congress has a lot of power over military spending. And the ability to investigate what the US is doing with its weapons. So the US is currently involved in a lot of overseas fighting, but based on our reporting, we think that the one that's most likely to be affected by the change in power in the house is the war in Yemen. Alex wanting you run down with the US role is there and what the conflict is like overall. Sure. So we got involved in two thousand fifteen to help the Saudi led coalition fight with rebels in Yemen. The main support that we give is through intelligence and air refueling. So that means when a Saudi plane, let's go bomb something we sometimes help put gas in the plane, and then we also help the Saudis target or find where they need to drop those bombs should note that a lot of those bombs are also sold to them by the United States. And so that's kind of been our support Madison. Say look we only rea. Feel about twenty percent. But like that's still support segregated defense James Mattis, right? And so that has been an incredibly unpopular war. It's again, it's hard in the Obama administration. It was a bit unpopular then. But there had never really been much congressional resistance to it until now, and especially since the kashogi murder, and especially now, the Democrats are in charge of the house. Right. So let's just stop for a second talk about why there's resistance the word Yemen. And what's going on? Like, you said, the US military is helping the Saudis with their bombing campaign, those bombs keep hitting things like school buses full of children open markets where civilians are houses of worship funerals farms bridges, all of the things that legally under the laws for our work rhymes, you can't fucking do that because that's horrific and the Saudis keep doing that. And so there's this big kind of groundswell in international human rights communities, and now we're seeing some movement in congress. And some other governments like the U K that also support the Saudi effort to say, wait a second way to second. The salaries are committing horrific war crimes here, we need to maybe rethink our support for this war, and then the murder of the Saudi dissident journalists Jamal shock g by highest levels of the Saudi regime. Brought this kind of back into focus again with people going wait a second. Why are we supporting this kind of brutal regime in this way in the war in Yemen and in other ways, so that's kind of why this is gotten more attention lately? And now we have this new House Democratic oversight. That's just got elected into office. I wanna be clear, this isn't just a Trump thing. Right. The started under President Obama, and there was minimal democratic resistance at the time. There were some Democrats who said you should do this. But also hold there wasn't much of an effort to constrain the Obama administration's essentially complicity or crimes, I think that's a fair term for. What being on the Saudi side in? This war is Senator Chris Murphy has actually been pretty good. Yeah. Would he's been not big on the so Senator rand Paul On Republican. republican. My Bernie Sanders those.
