"To be presented to the president today, Senator Chuck Grassley joined your world with Neil Cavuto to discuss the negotiate. So I think an easy solution is repurposed sing some of the money that's been appropriated under the covid bills and not used and some of it goes back to last year. That still isn't used, And there's a lot this year. Some Democratic leaders have pushed for budget reconciliation, which means congressional Democrats could pass the infrastructure plan without any Republican support. Congress can pass a reconciliation bill with just 50 votes they sentencing hearing for former Minneapolis police officer convicted of killing George, Florida scheduled for tomorrow. Kourtney Godfrey with Fox affiliate K. M. S. P has more. Derek Chauvin, who has never spoken publicly about the case will get the chance to speak for the first time at this hearing, and anyone in the community who has felt impacted by his actions can also have their voices heard. Chauvin will be back in a Hennepin County courtroom Friday, trading his prison jumpsuit for plain clothes. While it's unclear whether he'll choose to make a statement we do expect to hear from members of the Floyd family. And in an unusual move, the attorney general is asking members of the community who felt impacted by the crime. To submit victim impact statements as well. Prosecutors are asking for a 30 year sentence. And while sentencing guidelines are much less than that, Judge Peter Cahill found Chauvin should face more time because in part, he abused his power as a law enforcement officer. Shamans charges carry a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison. A handful of states have tried those vaccine lotteries as a way to try to get more people to get the Covid 19 shot. But have they actually worked. Well. Fox's John Saucier is looking at the numbers states offering millions of dollars in lotteries to those who went out and got the coronavirus vaccine some mixed results and how it affected their actual vaccination rate. Ohio, for example, has yet to achieve a 50% vaccination threshold despite giving away millions of dollars in incentives. After the second week of their lottery vaccinations dropped. Governor Mike DeWine argues the program motivated people who otherwise wouldn't have got the vaccine to do so. Results were also mixed or are still being calculated and states which had similar fact. Seen lotteries like California, Colorado, West Virginia, New Mexico, Louisiana and Oregon. John Serc, a Fox News I said early on Amy when they started doing these, and they got crazier, like in West Virginia, offering shotguns and fishing licenses. As incentive like man, the the people who don't want to get the vaccine offering them a shotgun and a million dollars probably isn't gonna Move them while million dollars might, but I just I just I mean, people should just get it to get it and they shouldn't one be more genuinely concerned incentives right? But that's the way I feel about it. But right. I mean, people are genuinely concerned like they're saying, Hey, I might get it in a year when I know what it hasn't caused, like infertility or anything weird like that. I mean, there are people genuinely concerned because there's just not enough data to show long term effects. But you can't you can't You know, fault someone for feeling that way until there's data to support it, But the million dollars it's just a funny a funny way to get people vaccinated.

Garland confirmation is a stage for 4 of GOP's 2024 hopefuls

"App. Federal Judge Merrick Garland is president Biden's nominee to become attorney general. He testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee today. The hearing lasted most of the day We begin with committee chair Dick Durbin of Illinois. This hearing will come to order today. The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to be the 86th attorney general of the United States. Judge Garland I wanna welcome you and your family. I want to welcome you back to the Senate Judiciary Committee. I know this return trip. It's been a long time and planning on you're here. Finally, this will be the Judiciary Committee's first hearing of the 117th Congress. Before I turned to my opening remarks. I'd like to just take a few minutes to make some Acknowledgments. I want to welcome my friend, Senator Chuck Grassley as the committee's ranking member. When I first came on the Senate Judiciary Committee 24 years ago, I was the ranking member on subcommittee with you, and we dealt with the issue of bankruptcy. Now Illinois and Iowa sit next to each other. And so did Urban Grassley. We have our differences. But Senator Grassley and I have worked together on important legislation over the years, most recently on criminal justice and sensing reform. I look forward to continuing that work in this Congress. I want to recognize the outgoing chair and ranking member Senator Lindsey Graham, who will join us remotely this morning, and Senator Dianne Feinstein. Senator Graham, as is true of Senator Grassley. Well, we don't always agree, has always been a welcome partner on many issues. Including one of the most challenging issues, immigration, Senator Feinstein. I want to come in for leading the committee Democrats with Grace and resolved over the past four years. I know she will continue to be an important voice on this committee on a host of issues, including in her new capacity as the chair of the Human Rights and Laws subcommittee, which I was proud to charity and past Congresses. I also want to welcome our new committee members who either be here in person. I see one in person and one probably remote senators Padilla And also on the Democratic side, Senator Cotton on the Republican side. I look forward to working with each of you. There's some historic first in the Judiciary Committee this year, Senator Padilla, our new senator from California, will be chairing the subcommittee on immigration, citizenship. Border safety. I'm honored that he's the first Latino senator to chair that subcommittee, and we look forward to his leadership. Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey will chair the subcommittee on criminal justice and counter terrorism. He's the first Black senator to chair a judiciary subcommittee. And we could not imagine a better choice at the helm of this particular subcommittee to all of our other members who are returning to serve on the committee. Welcome back. I want to thank all the committee members for agreeing to hold this committee hearing and vote on Judge Garland's nomination. It is a great honor to serve on this committee. The Senate established the Judiciary Committee by resolution on December 10th 18 16, making it among the very first standing committees of the Senate. This committee has seen many consequential debates and approved many important nominations and landmark legislation in the committee's history. There has only been one prior Illinois senator to serve his chair Judge Garland Lyman. Trumbull, who led the committee from 18 61 to 18 72, and during his term of service was a Democrat, a Republican, a radical Republican and a Democrat. Again. He was the most bipartisan senator, you could imagine His tenure was also distinguished by passage. Of historic legislation, the 13th 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution. The Freedman's bureau acts of 18 65 and 18 66 Civil Rights Act of 18 66. The last of these was introduced by Trumbull ultimately became the nation's first civil rights law. As chair, Trumbull saw a nation torn apart by original sin slavery and widespread violence and injustice that continued even after the 13th amendments. Passage is African Americans throughout the nation face race. System. Our nation is still dealing with the consequences of these injustices. People of color face systemic racism, and we're still working to rid this nation of the horrific legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. This committee could make a difference. We have the jurisdiction and the opportunity to do it through legislation, oversight and nominations, including this nomination of Merrick Garland to service our nation's next attorney general. There have been few moments in history where the role of attorney general and the occupant of That post It mattered more Judge Garland should you be confirmed, and I have every confidence you will be. You'll oversee a Justice Department at an existential moment. After four tumultuous years of intrigue, controversy and brute political force, the future of the department is clearly in the hands of the next attorney general Under attorney general Sessions and successor Bill Bar. The Justice Department literally became an arm of the White House committed to advancing the interest. The President Trump his family and his political allies. It came as little surprise then that the U. S Department of Justice became the Trump Department of Justice General Bar stated clearly that he believed the attorney general was the president's lawyer, not the nations. And what were the results too many in the department's senior roles cast aside the rules law trump appointees in the apartment sidelined career public servants from Lyon attorneys, two FBI agents Limited their roles disregarded their nonpartisan input override, overriding their professional judgment and falsely accusing them of being members of the

Senate Republicans appear to congratulate Kamala Harris in Washington, D.C.

"Kamila Harris back of the nation's capital for the first time in her new role yesterday, casting an important vote and accepting congratulations in some cases from Republicans with more on the incoming V P and other news from the nation's capital. I'm joined by Maybe season as delicate terra. It has come to Harris even got a fist bump or two yesterday. Tell us about her day at the Capitol. Got straight. She did get a few fists on one of them from Senate Judiciary chair Lindsey Graham yesterday as they were quizzing the grilling rather, the big tech CEOs of Twitter and Facebook during that Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. She did return to the capital for the first time as vice president elect, and probably the most interesting thing to come out of that with the fact that she received a classified intelligence briefing in her capacity of senator which is interesting because she So far in her capacity as vice president elect has not been able to receive those briefings because the General Services Administration refuses to recognize her and Joe Biden as the president elected by President elect the General Services Administration being the body that kind of overseas the transition, so because of that, she and Joe Biden have not been able to receive that class of those classified intelligence briefings. But she did get a briefing yesterday in her capacity of Senator is does the GS to act on their own earthy at the behest of the president, who has refused to concede or accept the fact that this is a new administration coming in? So they technically act on their own. But there is certainly concerns. There are concerns that there could be you know political influence there and that the G s a is kind of doing that the president's bidding and then until President Trump decides to concede that they won't do it, either, But they do maintain that they are One of their own thing on act independently. I was Senator Chuck Grassley, who has said President elect Biden should be getting those classified intelligence briefings from the Trump administration. We learned yesterday has tested positive for covert 19. That's right. Yes, that's some bad news there. Senator Chuck Grassley, who is the most senior Republican in the Senate. He's just the second oldest senator of the oldest actually being Dianne Feinstein, who's just a few months older, but he is the most senior Republican. He's 87 years old, so high risk demographic there for covert 19, but his office does say he's not experiencing any symptoms. So that's good news. They don't know how he contract ID the virus. The concern is that he was on the floor of the Senate voting on Today, and he was also part of Ah closed door hearing or meeting rather with Republican leadership. People who were in that meeting, though, said that you know, Grassley has been really good about wearing a mask that everybody in that meeting was wearing a mask. But they're not too concerned about having contracting the virus. But he is, you know, the second this week that has announced that he is now isolating. After a possible covert exposure. The first being Republican Senator Rick Scott of Florida, certainly wish them the best. Thank you so much as always say, and that's a bee season as delicate era in Washington. Come

State Department watchdog was investigating arms sales; Pompeo denies retaliation

"The State Department's Inspector General. I thought to be fired for investigating. The Secretary of State for assigning personal tasks to a department staffer also was investigating the approval of arms sale to Saudi Arabia without congressional approval officials from different congressional committees told NBC News. They believe Inspector General. Steve Clinic was fired in part for investigating Saudi arms sales that Congress had previously rejected house foreign affairs. Committee member Eliot Engel of New York. Confirm that investigation by late Monday. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are demanding a more complete explanation for Lennox firing according to the hill. Senator Chuck Grassley Republican of Iowa sent a letter to the president on Monday. Senator Grassley reminded president trump. The law requires detailed explanations for dismissing departmental watchdog to ensure that inspectors. General are not removed for political reasons. President Trump said the claims the secretary of state potentially misuse of government resources are overblown and seeing to consider them acceptable. Even if they are true look he's a high quality person. Mike is very high quality Zuri brilliant guy and now I have you telling me about dog walk in washing dishes and you know what I'd rather have him on the phone with some world leader. Then have him wash dishes because maybe his wife isn't there or his kids are you know. What are you telling me it's terrible. It's so stupid you know stupid. That sounds to the world unbelievable head to wash dishes because his wife wasn't there. The president also confirmed Monday. That secretary of State pompeo requested the dismissal of idealistic but did not directly address the issue of retaliation. President isn't there. At least an appearance of a conflict of interest of secretary. Pompeo is asking you to fire inspector. General's I don't I don't think so. I think maybe he thinks he's being treated unfairly again. He wanted to. He asked me if that would be possible. I said I'll do that. Your I think it should have been done a long time ago. Frankly and this is a man that has had some controversy. This inspector general but So again I don't know anything. I haven't even read much about him. I see that it's a little bit of a story not much of a story. 'cause everybody agrees that. I have the absolute right to fire. The Inspector General's secretary pay later dismissed the idea that his requests for the firing was in retaliation for links investigations into arms deals. And those errands saying quote. Because I simply don't know I'm not briefed on it. I usually see these investigations and final draft form. Twenty four hours forty eight hours before the is prepared to release them. So it's simply not possible for this to be an act of retaliation end of story says Secretary Pompeo the State Department's under-secretary for management told the Post that concern over linen had grown because of a quote pattern of unauthorized disclosures. Leaks to the news media about investigations. That were an early draft form. He added officials had no evidence. Linac was personally responsible for the leak so Casey Hud. There's a lot to unpack there. Let's go back to the arm sale though this was a year ago in. May when the president and secretary pompeo declared an emergency bypassing congress to sell about eight billion dollars worth of arms to Saudi Arabia and the UAE and it drew condemnation by the way from Republicans not just from Democrats but there was bipartisan. Condemnation of this move and now it appears that inspector general was looking into that declaration of emergency. Yes that's what. Nbc News learned late yesterday when Chairman Angle confirmed that this investigation was going on that they were angry that essentially he had the president and Pompeo tried to circumvent Congress on this arm sales question this was something that there are a lot of. Republicans as you point out who are very invested in what was going on in that particular situation. And who opposed this move by the administration but let's not forget to put the firing of this inspector general in to kind of the broader context in pattern that we're seeing going on here. This is not the first time something like this has happened and the administration has already ignored the rules that they are supposed to follow when something like this happens in the case of Michael Atkinson in the intelligence community by not explaining to Congress within thirty days why they did it and so I think there's a question here as to whether the administration will do it in the case of the State Department. This has been something that has drawn as you pointed out. Bipartisan condemnation chuck. Grassley though senator from Iowa has been particularly focused on this but the reality is Congress's relatively toothless in this regard they can make these demands asking for more information but the laws are not necessarily written in a position. That's strong enough to let them make a real difference here. And what we're left with is kind of a government that is increasingly. Not being held accountable. Now how that lines up with the president's campaign promise to drain the swamp I will let our viewers decide but they seem to be at odds. Donald Trump talked about how incredibly stupid thing sounded at his press conference. And I agree Casey. I want you to listen to this clip. One more time and let's focus on the part where Donald Trump says that he doesn't want Mike Palm. Oh doing dishes if his wife isn't there take a look. Look he's a high quality person. Mike is a very high quality his brilliant guy and now I have you tell me about dog walking washing dishes and you know what I'd rather have him on the phone with some world leader than have him wash dishes because maybe his wife isn't there or his kids are you know. What are you telling me it's terrible. It's so stupid stupid. That sounds to the world. Unbelievable quoting the president of the United States to you know Mr President how stupid that sounds to the world that in twenty twenty you say he needs State Department officials to washes dishes in case his wife. Isn't there

"A government official to Washington to discuss the matter on there has been a bit. More pushback from other places. The Wall Street Journal says Trade Representative Robert lighthizer is actually opposed to the new tariffs. He is worried that they will jeopardize passage of this revise NAFTA, this US Mexico, Canada agreement which already faced a pretty uncertain future in congress, also Iowa. Senator Chuck Grassley said today, what Trump did was a misuse of the president's tariff authority. I of course, is a big agriculture state and farmers, their sell a lot of products to Mexico, so they will be heard, especially if Mexico decides to retaliate with tariffs of its own. That's NPR's. Gyms zarroli Jim, thank you. You're welcome. The Trump administration says it will impose tariffs if Mexico doesn't stop the flow of migrants at the US border immigration experts question. Whether that's something Mexico can do as NPR's Joel rose report reports Mexico's enforcement is already stretched thin. Thin by the flow of migrants from Central America. The White House says Mexican authorities could easily halt the flow of migrants crossing their country and route to the US and the head of the border patrol union agrees. Yeah. Because we've seen it before. I mean, we already have a history of this, and, and it has worked so this presumably would obviously work again. That's Brandon Judd speaking today. NPR's morning edition. Mexican authorities helped limit the surge in unaccompanied children, coming to the US in two thousand fourteen for example by discouraging them from traveling on LA vista. The freight trains that migrants used to travel the length of Mexico. Former border security officials say cooperation from the Mexican government has been important in the past, but those same experts are skeptical that the Trump administration's ultimatum will suddenly stop the huge numbers of migrants crossing the southern border each month. This is a massive problem and Mexico doesn't have the border security infrastructure, that we have US John sand wedge is a former head of US, immigration and customs enforcement under President Obama. He says, Mexico's immigration forces are much smaller than their US counterparts. They too have been overwhelmed by the huge number of migrants from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador most, our families and children fleeing from violence and poverty, who stove Mahar served as Mexico's undersecretary for migration during the Bush and Obama administrations. He says Trump's demand is unreasonable asking Mexico to deter people that will do anything they can to try to at least have a chance to save. Their lives is asking for something people that you've the White House says Mexico could quote quickly and easily unquote stopped migrants from crossing at southern border with Guatemala, NPR's reported that Central American migrants move easily across that border on foot through the jungle or official checkpoints where smugglers have paid off immigration officials for Mexico to really grapple with this problem, experts say, it would have to beef up its immigration forces and root out corruption. But that will take time and an outsized effort. President Trump keeps going for the quick fix but there isn't a quick fix and there's no quick fix in what the US government can do in. There isn't a quick fix with the Mexican government can do. Andrew Sealy is president of a nonprofit migration policy institute in Washington, essentially, what you see is the US government hasn't been capable of figuring out how to respond to this massive flow and Trump seems to be throwing the ball to the Mexican government to do it, but they also are not in a position to do much more Sealy says the Mexican government already does cooperate with US immigration authorities. It's deported tens of thousands of Central American migrants and allowed thousands more to stay in Mexican border towns while they wait for their day and US immigration courts, under the Trump administration's controversial remain in Mexico policy. John San wakes says right now the Mexican government takes back. It's deported nationals quickly, the administration's if need be very careful here. Because it Mexico dials back to operation beings.

"Thanks very much. It's all things considered from NPR news. I'm Audie Cornish Shapiro today. The Trump administration agreed to drop tariffs on steel and aluminum imported from Canada and Mexico. President Trump had imposed those tariffs last year and to explain what seems to be a change of heart. We're joined now by NPR's gyms early. Hi, jim. Hi ari. Take us through what the president has now agreed to do. Well, he's he's eliminated these terrorists that he put in place in March twenty eighteen of course, tariffs are like a tax on imported products. They make them more expensive, but now Canada and Mexico can sell steel and aluminum in the United States without these tariffs in place. And then in return, they're going to eliminate the tariffs they placed on products. They buy from the United States like cheese and whiskey. This is especially good news for farmers who have seen their sales to those countries, just plummet, especially dairy farmers. They were big suppliers to Mexico. Now they can sell their again, these tears part of present. Trump's promised to revive American steel explain how this was supposed to work. Well, the global steel industry has just gotten very big. There's been too much capacity and this causes prices to fall. So the steel industry in particular has been in a lot of trouble, it the steel industry, accused other countries of dumping steel at a low price. President Trump said he wanted to revive the industry. He wanted manufacturers in the United States to use American steel, and what he did was he cited a trade law, which is known as section two thirty two and what that says is if there's an industry that is needed for national security, the president can take steps to protected by restricting any imports that might compete with it. Now, this really angered candidate particular, because it is the biggest supplier of steel to the US and Canada said, how can you be citing national security reasons to block our steel when we're one of your most loyal allies. Canada had been saying that for a while. So is President Trump's decision to? Eliminate the tariffs. Now a recognition that his strategy for the last year hasn't worked. I think he did it because he has bigger fish to fry. The president has this new revised version of NAFTA that he negotiated with Canada and Mexico, which he says, is huge improvement over NAFTA. Although a lot of communist would say, you know, it makes basically incremental changes in trade policy. It's good for auto parts companies, for example. But the new treaty is called the US Mexico Canada agreement. It has to be approved by congress. There is a lot of opposition to it some Democrats in the house want to rewrite it of. But also some Republicans like Senator Chuck Grassley made clear there's not going to be there wouldn't be vote until these, these tariffs are gone. So President Trump said today now these tariffs are gone. Congress get down to the business of voting on his treaty. So that deal is going to be a fantastic deal for our country, and hopefully congress will approve the US MCA quickly and then the great farmers and manufacture. Pictures and steel plants will make our economy, even more successful than it already is, if that's possible Jim, just in our last thirty seconds or so what kind of impacted these tariffs have over the last year. Well, the steel industry, loved them because once you cut off imports the price of steel went up for a while later on though it came down. But there was a huge downside, because once you make steel aluminum more expensive, it, it hurts all the other industries that use them in their own manufacturing automakers canned goods companies a lot of them saw their prices rise. So there was a lot of pressure on the administration to reduce these tariffs, and it came from these industries, but it also came from members of congress. Thanks, jim. You're welcome. It's time now to talk about the week in politics, and we're joined by our political commentators. David Brooks of the New York Times, David and each of the Washington Post, welcome back. We're gonna turn to international news and a Ron tensions between the United States and Ron have been escalating for more than a week last week. The US sent an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf, the State Department ordered some staff to leave the US embassy in Iraq and the president was asked directly yesterday. If the US is headed tour with Iran and his answer was, I hope not now yesterday we spoke with former national Security Council spokesman, Michael Anton, and he echoed Trump's position, I don't think he is waiting tensions. I think he's responding with strength to a threat that we perceive, precisely in order to ratchet tensions down. So David says everyone has it all wrong. What do you think the administration is trying to actually accomplish? Well, if Running's sent out messages to their militant armies that they should target Americans with terror attacks than the American. Obviously had to do something. And so he is. Because they were designated a terror group. Well, it been doesn't need group since nineteen seventy nine. The the. The US respond and Indian ministration would respond. I'd feel a lot better. If the administration didn't seem to be overconfident that Iran will capitulate they seem to think the running in Konami so weak that the sanctions are having such an effect that they're having success if they record up tensions, and if they do sort of squeeze, I think they're probably overconfident. And so they could ratchet up tensions and then around ratchet up tensions, and so on its own. We'll get some place. We don't wanna be AJ candidate Trump ran on a position of no more foreign wars. Is this risky for president to be presiding over a national security team? That is moving in this direction. In fact, it's so risky that you can't tell what Trump himself actually believes from day to day on this. I think there are three really scary things going on here. One as you suggested the president has made statements suggesting that he doesn't even agree with this policy. At least on Sundays, what me go to war, and yet, this policy is rolling forward. So who's in control here? Secondly, there's leak after leak about supposed threats from Iran that upon inspection Joente really hold up or turn out to be much more complicated than the leaker wanted to suggest this sounds like the run-up to Iraq, and it's something we got to be careful about we in the media, and we obviously the public, and then the thirty is they seem to be setting up a situation that could explode Wendy Sherman, the under secretary of state and under secretary of state under President Obama had a piece of New York Times began either the Trump administration is trying to go to run into a war or war could come by accident because of the administration's reckless policies, and I'm afraid she's right about that. I wanna move to immigration the big story, the last twenty four hours. The foundation of this plan is a quote, a merit based immigration kind of Reaguring, the configuration of a mix of people who come in compared to the past with more family based. Immigration. I'm David speaker of the house. Nancy, Nancy Pelosi called it condescending to use this term merit base. What what's wrong with trying to attract the best and brightest, nothing? You know. It's the Canadians. Have this kind of system. The Australians kind of head the system, I've always thought, we should shift a little more toward America system, in part, because immigration sort of competition for global talent. We want to be here, second, because we'll America will accept immigration better. If we don't have a permanent underclass, and we don't wanna permanent underclass this, this particular Bill is dead on arrival. It's not a comprehensive reform. It doesn't address the core issues, but the shift toward America system. I think is a good thing. He I think the problem with the word merit. Is that it implies that some people have more merit than others? The idea that we might as part of a compromise on the road has system that targets particular kinds of people who could fill jobs. We need failed. I think that's very possible problem with what Trump did is there's no compromise in here. All there's no mention of the DACA kids. Those children who were brought here by their parents when they were young and our American in every way except that they don't have citizenship. Secondly, there is no nothing here to deal with the eleven or so million. Who have come here illegally? So I don't think this was a serious proposal, if Trump ever wanted to get serious about this, maybe something could happen, but they're just not serious. Finally, we're going to check in on the ever growing democratic primary race where we're now up to twenty three people running. David, you've been intrigued by an interesting pattern. That's emerging among democratic voters that there's always splits on some demographic line in reelection. What's interesting to me is where the splits are not. There's sometimes split by education level. There's no split among where Democrats land by by gender. There's no gender gap, which is surprising. There's so many women running. There's no split on income, where there's a big split on age, the older voters tend to be for Biden and younger voters less so, but still significant. And so it's contest between older voters. I think are less interested in systemic change, and younger rose, who want that systemic change. In one something more radical. And we'll see if that split persist, I suspect it will air to the ground with hearing. On the age split. Ron brownstein had a piece on this in the Atlantic this morning, and you can look at it two ways. It's quite true. The Joe Biden is weaker among young people than among older voters. And I think one way in which has going to be important is, as a test of his electability, because Democrats are going to have to turn out a lot of young people to win on the other hand the numbers that Ron cited abide was getting forty five percent of the over forty five. He was still getting thirty one percent among the under forty five. That's pretty good. If he could hold that he'd probably wins the nomination what I'm also struck by is that Bernie Sanders seems to be running into a little rough water because binds entry seems to have taken some votes away from him from voters who are looking for somebody experienced in running somebody older, obviously, but Elizabeth Warren has been rising and seems to be taking some of the constituency on the left part of the party. So I think this is going to be a challenging time for Sanders in his supporters in the coming weeks. Hearing about any other names that intrigue. You I mean, I can't think of two more known quantities than Biden and Sanders. We're talking twenty three candidates people to judge has. Four. Extraordinary start that is where you see an education split, by the way, Mary pizza supporters tend to be older, David Harris, the other person. I'm just amazed how much just beating Trump is, is on voters mine. Anybody'll be Trump and Biden seems like a fair bet. But I've heard a lot of people, people have heard this, a lot of people say, we got nominated a white male because America will not vote for somebody who's doesn't fit that category. That to me is morally problematic way to choose a candidate. But you do get to the point people. What's your main issue? Feeding Trump seems to be the main issue reflected. I think that I've heard some of that from some people some Democrats, but I think it's striking that, comma Harris and Elizabeth Warren have are in that top five at the moment, and they've each gained some ground, Warren, especially Harris in part through her.

And I think, but Tony time that our office got it in you got it couldn't have been a couple of minutes. On there. I saw him on the plane afterwards and. Just put I don't know how to explain this. I mean, you've been under extreme scrutiny even shouting to the mountaintop. I didn't do this a sense of relief. Sense of frustration. How could this happen or those who did it gonna get away with it? And I hope some new energy to that will lead to okay now, the twenty six maybe legitimacy D'amoto election that I didn't have before. Let's go on about governor the country last question. We're here. Who else would you be looking? Well. How was still hired. I'd like for him to come. If you would. Establish a record of how much did the Democratic Party pay fusion GPS? How much money did they give the Mr. Steele? How could Bruce oars wife worked for fusion GPS while he was like the number four at DOJ. Ask a question is the dossier? Verified to this day is my belief that the information in the dossier is unverified to this very day. Mr. cooling did not go to Prague the salacious material in the dossier. This just a bunch of garbage. I think generated by Russians trying to undercut our democracy. So I will do being I'll be doing oversight to try to put this puzzle together. And I don't know what Mr. bar will do. But I ain't because of the emotional nature of all this that somebody like Mr. Muller needs to look at the Faisal warrant the other stuff. Thank you very much.

Businesses closed under the previous sort of the Senate will proceed to executive session to resume consideration of the following nomination. Which the clerk will report nomination the judiciary Bridget s Baid of Arizona to the United States Circuit Judge for the ninth circuit. Senator from Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley. I come to the floor today to share a message from Iowa's heartland. As you know, millions of Americans in the middle of the country are experiencing catastrophic flooding, my home state of Iowa. And our neighbors in Nebraska are particularly hard hit and downriver of the Missouri and Mississippi it'll affect others. I wanna thank the administration for swift response on Saturday to approve the expedited request for a major disaster declaration made by Iowa governor, Kim Reynolds on Thursday evening, the flooding has caused tremendous damage impacting more than two terms of Iowa's ninety nine counties. The federal disaster proclamation will trigger emergency assistance to fifty six of those counties, so far, and that would be the counties and boom on the map here. Governor Reynolds team has been in trenches working hand in hand with local officials in county emergency coordinators. They estimated damage so far across our entire state being one in six billion dollars. The damage is estimated for agriculture is two hundred and fourteen Marian damages to homes and eighty one million levee repair estimates five hundred and twenty-five. By all accounts. And every possible metric the damages and devastation are overwhelming. And yet at the very same time, the legendary mythology of America's heartland people is rooted in true, rogue recovery will be long ruling and at times gruesome, but I am confident that the grit and resilience of Iowans and their fellow Midwesterners will prevail. The last week. We've heard remarkable stories of neighbor helping neighbor of neighbors helping total strangers. Residents of all ages. And residents of differing.

"But he's going to declare a national emergency. So you can get the additional funds for the border wall and very late on Thursday. The White House announced the president would be making remarks about national security and the border in the rose garden. So there you go. That's what's happening. There's ways to do it apparently. And we talked to the former congressman Bob ney who said, you know, what there's ways to do this. And I think they figured it out. We'll see how it plays out. However and Senator John Kennedy Republican from Louisiana who voted for the Bill said he supports the president's plan to declare an emergency. And this is what he said he said the president's not exercise any power that congress didn't give him had congress done its job instead of playing politics. He wouldn't have to do it. Senator Chuck Grassley Republican from is know longtime on the hill. He said, let's all pray that the president will have wisdom to sign the bills at the government doesn't shut down. So this is the way to avoid the shutdown, but then to leapfrog into different direction, and it could be challenged. But there there might be these ways around it, which that's what it's looking like it's still would have to play out. And the president has suggested all along that he could get the rest of the money for wall by declaring some sort of a national emergency that he could use defense money for wall construction. There could be legal challenges probably will be from opponents who say the president can't do that can't declare an emergency. But he can do it. And then they can challenge it. That's how this is all going to play out. And how about this one? One from Steve. And Steve says, hey, Kate. I was wondering if he's all Michelle Obama at the Grammys I have to say, I'm a Republican. But you go MRs Obama, I never had anything against her. In fact, I thought she seemed like a decent first lady and took a lot of flack she shouldn't have had to take. It's ridiculous. When the first lady's become the targets anyway, in my opinion, but she is raising awareness. Look she grew up poor and ended up going to law school and working hard. You cannot fault that against her. She absolutely lived the American dream. And if she gives hope to anybody be they white black, Hispanic or whatever I say right on and I'm sure my buddies wouldn't agree. But I thought it was very well done. All right. So there you go. Then we go to this one. This one is from Joseph and Joseph says Kate you talked a lot about money in the past. You've had investment people on a lot of them. And I think when you look at where the market is now. There's certainly is the ups and downs. And would you suggest that it's better to diversify rather than put your money all in one thing? Well, I am not stockbroker or an investment advisor. Of course. It's better to diversify thinking anything you do. Right. So I am risk averse in a way in a way. I'm not because I am a risky person. Right. But if I have my druthers, of course, I would want to. I would want to have I would want to have investments in different areas. Why because you don't know the rock I say this all the time the the market is like the craps table, right? If you have tons of money, and you're just taking chunks here and there and you're making these quick hits. And it's paying off that's one thing. But if you're trying to score wickedly fast, and you're pumping money all in one direction that is wickedly risky. You don't have to be brilliant to realize that it's all about managing money. Right. It's all about the advice. You take. It's it's, but I think ultimately you make the decision yourself. Don't let somebody else push you into doing something. You don't feel good about do your homework. Why are you doing what do you want to have happened? What are you looking for what's comfortable for you? That's, you know, do do it from a to z and make sure you feel good. There's no there's no sure thing. But there certainly are safer. For investments, right? It's like real estate new here a lot about investing in real estate. And hey, real estate can be great. You know, you on real estate you on properties, you know, how to run them. I know a lot of people who have made a lot of money that way, and they didn't start off with a lot of money they scraped together. But they were scrappy and learn the learned what they had to do. And then went forward after that though. That's it. Then I got this one. From this one from MAC who says hi, Kate. I've been traveling. I have been listening to the show. I actually do the podcast thing on tune in. I heard you talk about it one night. And I got the tune in app after you said you had the tune in. And now it's actually been a great tool because I've been listening been able to listen to you you and my other favorite, which is Sean Hannity. So I have Sean in Cape programmed in so to speak, and I've been listening to your shows. I have to say one of the things that I really really love that you do is on many your segments. You say this is all about being the voice of reason. And whether you're right of right left of left or somewhere in between. You're invited to the party. What a nice sentiment, wouldn't it be great? If we could have those conversations again instead of attacking each other politics is such a hot wire that with my company you have to sign an agreement. That when we are out, and we're dealing with clients erect conventions that we don't talk about politics because it could alter the way we are viewed. How do you feel about that? Well, here's the thing you work for private company. I don't know the company, but he worked for company, and they like signing nondisclosures, right? And they want they ask you to sign certain things or else they tell you can't be employed there. So that's your that's their choice, and that's your choice to do it. I can see how that can happen because I've seen some some heated things. In speaking to companies and speaking in different financial areas, I've seen people get hot about things when something comes up, whether it's retirement the wall, whether we're talking about said of the union, whether we're talking about something that happens with the Democrats or Republicans, or whatever it might be. So that's happening more and more with companies because they want to try to try to avoid that so interesting because I grew up I've said this before, but I'll say it again, I grew up with the mother that wanted us to know about current events. And we were supposed to have opinions when we came to the dinner table and be able to defend our opinions. I mean, we didn't have screaming fights and food wasn't flying. But we we would just talk about what was going on in the world. And now, it's like religion and politics, you know, that old saying about you can't go in that direction. And and that is true depending on the circumstances of who you're working for or what you're doing because sadly, we should be able to we should be able to express ourselves. But because people get so hot about it, and it becomes sometimes almost to the point of ridiculousness of fights. And. Alienated and whatever else that that's the culture. Then of course, you can't you can't do it, and, you know, t shirts with political statements in that whole kind of thing. That's you're just goading asking to have things have things happen as we've onto another one. How about this from Karen? Hey, kate. I was wondering what you thought of this new phenomenon about axe throwing and also escape rooms I've been doing both. I'm not saying I've done a lot. But I've done it a couple of times with friends, and I've done it with neighbors. Actually, we had a night. We're bunch of us did the axe throwing thing. And I was wondering if you have done either one of these things, and what did you think that's such a crazy question because I have done both. I've done the axe throwing thing with friends, and I was terrible at first. I was getting so frustrated because I just thought you teach me do it. So they showed us how to throw it throw it keep hitting. It was bouncing off the target bouncing bouncing. And then Finally I said to the instructor to use two hands throat over your head or throat in front of you. And just you just kinda push it. And I said I wanna do this one handed. I think I'm better one hands it and sure enough, and he said just don't hack yourself and be careful, but you, okay. And when I pulled it back one handed Bill, I'm hitting the target hitting the target hitting the targets. So. Did the one handed thing it was cool. And then the other thing escape rooms have done them a couple.

And then come up and say, well, we have to sign it, you know, within see what's in it again. Dislike ObamaCare, but what I've kind of noticed as you. You've been talking about all this stuff going against Trump. He does I believe have an option of turning into people's on them. Now that Muller has virtually cleared him without you know, not saying that all the innuendos will still come out. He's virtually been legally cleared. No. He hasn't. Well, no. League leader saying all they have left is innuendo. Well, this could be here. This could be there. But if he was to form a presidential commission on political corruption to investigate congress than DOJ all the goings on that because there is evidence of all kinds of corruption in their weight, the president would shift. Everybody's focus. Yeah. But the president cannot investigate congress. They're the separation of powers, they have oversight. This is this is this is constitutional. They have oversight of the executive branch. He cannot he can't so much as go there without their request an invitation. He cannot investigate they investigate themselves. Pure and simple what he can do. And I agree with you. A hundred percent I mentioned it earlier. It is time to empanel a legitimate special counsel to look at Robert Muller, and Andrew Weissmann, and McCabe, an Komi, and Rosenstein and Clapper and Brennan and Hillary and everybody involved at Bruce or Nellie or Glenn Simpson. Fusion GPS it is time for legitimate investigation in just what the hell has been going on the last two years. There is no doubt in my mind because I have been asking ever since. Is it for a long time since I have known in my bones instinctively that this thing has been a hoax that there wasn't any Russian collusion at that. They knew it. What's going to happen to the people who have gotten away with this? What's going to happen to the people who have been purpose? This has been a silent coup. Folks. This has been an attempt to run a duly elected president out of office. And we know who the players are they're bragging about Anne McCabe. Got this book outreach bragging about the steps that he took and confirming that they were legitimately thinking of wiring Rosenstein to going to the Oval Office to entrap Trump into saying something that they could then play for the cabinet that would force the cabinet suggest Trump leave twenty-fifth amendment.

Here's my conversation. With Senator Chuck Grassley Senator Chuck Grassley. Welcome to politico. Pulse. Check. Hey, I'm glad to be with you anytime. I get a chance to communicate when my constituents that's what Representative government's all about. And I hope they communicate back. All you're always communicating. You have so many different paths from from sitting down with someone like media using social media, which we will get to. But I wanted to start with this. It's a new congress. You have a number of new responsibilities including your president pro tempore of of the Senate. This is significant responsibility or fourth in line now for succession to the president. I'm curious what in your realm of new responsibilities has been most interesting or surprising to you. As president pro tem. I think the number of duties that the code requires that really has not a lot of discretion. It's mostly ministerial. Title or maybe say ceremonial, but really if you summed it up, the president of the Senate is the vice president United States, but as you probably know in the last seventy years, I think starting with Nixon when he was vice president vice presidents haven't presided over the Senate or be involved in the Senate very much except for vote breaking ties and in ceremonial things. So I like to summit up that president pro tem outside of being in presidential succession, does whatever the president of the United States or the vice president of the United States does as president Senate only you do it when he's not here, which is about ninety nine percent of the time. Does your staff now call you Mr President behind closed doors? No. No, they call me. Chuck, I I'm not at that level. So have to refer to you. As Senator Grassley, your chairman again for the third time of the Senate finance committee after giving up leadership of the judiciary committee. I'm curious why you decided to come back..
