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?

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.

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

Mike Pompeo accuses Democrats of trying to 'bully' State officials into interviews
"We're following breaking news in the impeachment. Investigation sources tell C. N. N. that the trump administration's former on void to Ukraine still plans to be questioned by members of Congress on Thursday this this despite secretary of State Mike Pompeo's efforts to stall any immediate testimony by State Department officials about the Ukraine scandal tonight on Peyot and top House House Democrats are accusing each other trying to intimidate witnesses with the Democrats warning that pompey's actions may be used as evidence of obstruction. I'll be getting reaction reaction from a Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee Congressman. Steve Cohen and our correspondents and analysts are also standing by. Let's go to the White House I and C. N. N. In White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins Caitlyn Secretary Pompeo is facing growing pressure and also scrutiny as this probe intensifies yeah and essentially Briana what he's he's arguing in. This letter is that Democrats rush these requests to sit down with these officials buck. One former official doesn't seem to think it's happening too soon. That's because Kurt folk or who was the former special envoy to Ukraine who resigned last week after he got caught up in the middle of the scandal has agreed to continue to sit down with Democrats on Thursday for his deposition but now the question is going to be how much he'll say and whether or not the State Department will try to limit it to disgrace tonight secretary of State Mike Pompeo is following president trump's lead accusing Democrats with questions about Ukraine of trying to intimidate him bully state eight department officials into giving rush depositions the secretary of state writing in a letter. I will not tolerate such tactics. The three democratic chairs fired back quickly saying pompeo should immediately sees intimidating department witnesses in order to protect himself and the President Secretary Secretary Pompeo's actions also coming under scrutiny from someone who once held his job secretary of State's job is to make sure that he knows house number one what the president's GonNa say on those calls. TNN has confirmed pumping was listening in when trump pressured Ukrainian President Dolinsky to investigate investigate the Biden's even though he seems surprised by a question about those conversations just days ago so you just gave me a report talk about a campaign none of which I've seen as trump maintains. His call was perfect. The Ukrainian president is distancing getting himself from the man at the center of it all. I've never met earl- digit never as the impeachment angry heats up. Trump is keeping his focus on the whistle blower insisting he's entitled to interview the person who started the investigation. The president is questioning the identity of the whistle blower as his allies allies are questioning their motives what's going on here. Why did they change the rules about whistleblower. you can use hearsay when you use could not just weeks before the complaint he had no first-hand knowledge. He is giving them hearsay evidence but none of what they said is true. According to trump's own intelligence community inspector general who in a rare pushback said the official had some firsthand knowledge and none of the rules to be a whistle blower have changed Republican Senator Chuck Grassley Asleep chairs the whistleblower protection caucus and he broke with trump today when he said the official to be heard and protected one official all still in the president's corner is Attorney General Bill Barr who in recent months has pressed multiple foreign leaders for help as he investigates the origins of the Russia Chen Bussey Gatien following trump orders from May and I hope he looks at the UK and I hope he looks at Australia and I hope he looks at Ukraine rain. I hope he looks at everything now Brianna right now. The Secretary of State is travelling overseas where the reporters with him have asked him questions about his role in this scandal so far has an answer those questions we're going to be waiting to see what he says and whether or not these other officials follow suit with the former official who is still going to sit down with those. Democrats Kaitlan Collins at the White House thank you and let's get more now on this battle between the State Department and impeachment investigators on the hill we have. CNN Congressional national correspondent Sunlen Serfaty joining us and Sunlen despite what we heard today from Secretary Pump Congress could still hear from key players outlined in this complaint. That's right Brianna despite fight all this the person is former special envoy to the Ukraine Kurt Volker. He says he will still appear on Capitol Hill on Thursday and that's according to an aid read telling CNN tonight testimony likely behind closed doors on Thursday and Bulker of course is no longer a State Department employee after he abruptly resigned last week after being named in the whistle blow report the whistle blower alleging that bulker had involvement in the conversations with the Ukrainian president resident how about navigate the demands that complaint says that President Trump made of the Ukrainian president and he was one of the five people that the Committees Committee's had wanted to talk to you wanted to get depositions from over the course of this two week recess now meantime the testimony of former. US Ambassador Ukraine which had had been scheduled for tomorrow up here on Capitol Hill that delayed at least a week likely push until Friday of next week Brianna these voices potentially significant and the Democrats impeachment pro and some we just heard a Republican Senator Chuck Grassley is breaking with the president saying the whistle blower deserves to be heard. What else is he saying. He Yeah Grassley voices such a key. Republican up here on Capitol Hill and this is certainly a big rebuke significant that he is essentially breaking with President trump and almost most calling him out directly saying that the whistle blower should be heard and protected grassley out with a statement this afternoon saying in part quote. No one should be making judgment or pronouncements without hearing from the whistle blower I and carefully following the facts uninformed speculation wielded by politicians or media commentators. Here's as a partisan weapon is counterproductive and doesn't serve the country. Grassley is the chambers senior most Republicans someone who has worked on whistle blower protection laws for years so certainly significant words in stinging words absolutely directed and President Trump's drug addiction tight even though he does not name president trump by name in a statement brands definitely clear as you say Sunlen.

The White House doubling down. Not only have we thought this through. But we've been talking about it since the president, not just on the campaign, but took office, the president has been saying, for months if not years, that we have to do something to secure our border senators, even as Republican lawmakers pushed back, I alwa-, Senator Chuck Grassley issuing this statement, reading trade policy and border security are separate issues. This is a misuse of presidential tariff thority and counter to congressional intent in a press conference. Mexico's president thing, the measures would not benefit Mexicans or Americans in Washington. I'm Kristen Holmes reporting. Well, we're not really going to be talking about trade policy in this portion of the program, but just general tenor of that report, and you may recall Kristen Holmes. Very first words, President Trump sending a shock wave throughout the country. He do that. What does they some people just say that the president could be crazy? Maybe some say that the president is of disciplined, maybe or there's another theory, and that's worth looking at, as we talked to evening with David Johnson, CEO, and founder of strategic vision, PR group to take a look at the presidential messaging strategy and philosophy. David, thank you for joining us tonight. It's great to be on. So the president is, again, sending shock waves throughout the country, sometimes throughout the world, and you have made it most interesting comparison between President Trump and earlier president president Nixon what, what is that comparison? All the comparison is Richard Nixon developed when he was president for foreign policy to so-called mad man theory that he'd studied into our that is you white your adversaries to think you're so crazy, so Roddick, you'll do anything that they'll come to the negotiation table and make concessions for Nixon. It helped him in the Vietnam war open the door to China. Also detente with the Soviet Union. Now, Donald Trump's that his first remembrance of president the first president that he got to know was Richard Nixon in with Donald Trump. Yes. People say what he does Roddick bizarre. But it always seems to have a purpose and if you look he usually get some kind of result at the end, and I think he's applying Nixon's madman theory, not just the foreign policy, but to domestic policy as well like FOX. Yes. He's crazy like FOX and today we so with tariffs with Mexico everyone in a panic yet. The Mexicans are terrified the devil, recent their foreign minister to Washington to try to me with a ministration officials defined solution. Interesting. Longest run of the subject, I gather you're willing to, to talk about the tariff issue. But I want to return to this, this madman theory before we're done it terms of, of the merits of the action. I know that from that previous report, we heard Chuck Grassley state that I'll just quote him trade policy at border security are separate issues. This is a misuse of presidential tariff thirty countered congressional attempt intent it may be counter to congressional intent. And yes, they are separate policies separate issues that doesn't mean necessarily that the tactics can't overlap, there are circumstances in which we may require a certain amount of leverage over another country and the leverage may not be there in the issue at hand, which is not to say that there's anything either wrong, or illegal or unconstitutional about applying leverage elsewhere to reach the desired end. No. There isn't an look the president has over and over again complained about the border is as resources to combat it. He's Mexico for its help. We all know, give Kratz the house reviews if the money for his border wall, so far, Mexico has been stalling so the president decided to Tien tariffs with congress incidently abdicated and gave him more power to and other previous presidents as well control terrorists you this force decision. And some of these critics even on the Republican side like Senator Grassley and others have also all admitted that we do have a problem at the border and the president takes very seriously. The preserve, protect and defend the constitution in the American people in his feelings. He will use whatever resources see can legally to end this is Esther. Border. Some people might call a crazy unconstitutional. It's not in it seems to be working Mexico appears to be backing down and shown indication that they're willing to work in terms of crazy. Of course unconstitutional two different issues. Crazy is a very subjective judgment. And if it works, and it doesn't have a disastrous side effect that I say by definition, it's not it's not crazy. And again, something has to be done about the Mexican attitude of flushing their own employment problem, north, when they themselves have always been pretty good about defending dare southern border, but they treat their northern border as a place that they can with impunity send people across in fact, at one point, the Mexican government was even printing comic books detailing how you cross the border into the United States. So I find it fine. In terms of. Of, of constitutionality. Again congressional intent is not a critical issue here. The critical issue is what the law said that was passed. And if that was about the virus had in mind than the congress should have written something else. Exactly. And if you look the mix never expected, an American president to do what he did today with terrorists, and it's creating panic in the Mexican governing circles, as I said, they've already sent their foreign minister to try to put an end to this. So the tears yet again Donald Trump with his so called erotic behavior is scoring nother triumph just as we he did with North Korea. He got them to go. She's table..

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.

"I'm begging a chocolate bar. You were talking about the two thousand eighteen farm Bill. It's passed through congress and now awaits president Donald Trump's signature he is expected to sign the Bill this week. It's an eight hundred sixty seven billion dollar five-year Bill that expands subsidies and deals with the nations food stamp program as well. We heard in the last segment how it would seek to legalize hemp in the United States would love to hear your thoughts on the farm Bill, and whether or not affect you, Catherine Boudreaux's with us, she's food and agriculture reporter for politico and Catherine wanted to play a little bit of tape because I want to explore the issue the subsidies with you a bit more because it did not get unanimous support at all. Here's Republican Senator Chuck Grassley. He's on the Senate committee of agriculture, nutrition and forestry obviously represents Iowa as well. And he told W O I television in Des Moines last week that he voted against the farm Bill. And here's why we shouldn't be subsidizing big farmers. Get bigger, and that's what we're doing and cutting out beginning beginning in younger farmers getting started. So I voted against it on that narrow reason. But a very important reason to me, Catherine Boudreau said tell us a little bit more about what the senators talking about here about subsidizing big farmers to get bigger. What did he mean? Right. So Senator Chuck Grassley for he has for a long time tried to rein in eligibility for commodity subsidies on farms, the number of people on a farm who can qualify for subsidies. Basically, everyone who's receiving payments from these farm programs Haas to be quote, unquote. Actively engaged this is a UCA definition and Senator Chuck Grassley thinks that's a ver to loose, and it allows non farmers people who aren't really lifting a finger and doing the work to to receive upwards of one hundred twenty five thousand dollars a year. That's the limit per person. Okay. So can you clarify that a little bit? Because I'm seeing here that what we're talk. About is that it's possible now for nephews nieces and first cousins who may not even be working on the farm at all to qualify for these subsidies. They technically still have to meet this definition. And there's really a lot of debate about whether this definition of actively engaged strict enough, and it's just, you know, the they tried to strengthen the definition in the last farm Bill, and that's something that Senator Chuck Grassley was working on, but essentially, they exempted family farms from the more strict definition, and that means that, you know, most of these family farms are the most of the family farms in this country. Sorry, most of the farms in this country are family farms. So they didn't weren't subject to the stricter. Excuse me definition. Okay. Forgive me for being a little confused. But you know, we're not. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it's highly technical because this Senator Chuck Grassley is. Goosing in on a very narrow part of how people qualify for for substitutes. But that's been a long crusade of his. Okay. I guess so here relying on your expertise have you're the person who's gone through every page of this Bill. But what I'm seeing in news reports people keep pointing at this. The the final Bill includes this house proposal that would allow more distant relatives to qualify for commodity subsidies. Is that have to do? I mean is that with which is right. What is that? Farm owner. Yes. Your farm owner. And you have a a cousin niece nephew on the farm. I mean, they now will be considered a family member and be eligible. But again, they have to meet this definition that USDA enforces. And there's a lot of debate about whether that is strict enough. Okay. And then in addition to that there was a Senate attempt to limit the payments to the wealthier producers as you were talking about before. But that is not in the Bill is that what the Senator Grassley was objecting to. Yes, he also takes issue with the current limit the income limit is nine hundred thousand dollars a year. So if you're earning above that, you do not qualify for commodity subsidies. The Senate wanted to lower that to seven hundred thousand dollars. But that ultimately was stripped from the Bill is e okay..

And I was I had a bunch of really stupid stories about people doing stupid things and bolt turns out I still have a bunch of stories about people doing stupid things, but they're not really laughing matters. They're stupid people doing stupid things. In case you have not heard. Senator Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the judiciary committee this morning. Held the gavel open much that meant that. They're hearing today was scheduled for two hours, but he allowed senators on both sides to participate. Embroil boy pontificate did they ever on the democrat side. Pontificate? And they would mention, you know, they're friends across the aisle in the collegiality in the camaraderie, and how they really respect this. And that I mean, it was it was just vomit inducing. Once they finished. They would then sanctimoniously announced that they were getting up and walking out. As if anybody really gave a rat's ass about either. What they said or the fact that they walked out. It wasn't even good political theater. Sometimes you get people that are really good. You get someone that gives a really good stem. Winder speech was really passionate about what they say. Because they believe it, you know, the people that do the best public. Speaking of the people that speak from the heart that speak from their heart and their head because of what they know. And they don't stand up there with notes or written scripted speech. Those are the people you pay attention to. Those are the people listen to because you know, that they're passionate about what they believe him. And then there are those who are lying through their teeth and just going through the motions and saying the words, and you know, you can tell that it's all I I want to petition the Federal Communications Commission.

Should be able to be settled air because if we are going to be surrounded by so much BS coming in emanating out of Washington DC, and quite frankly from other parts of the country, then we should be able to call Spade. A spade. And what I saw today was utter. Unpasteurized bs. Cory booker. Talking about how he worked so hard to get on the Senate Judiciary committee because he cares about Justice because he cares about somehow bridging the partisan divide. Soaks so much crap. Democrats don't care about bipartisanship. But let's be honest. I don't care about bipartisanship either. I think it's way overrated. We need to be quite honest. And we need to be clear minded. Clear-sighted about what's going on? So maybe buried delete here. A little bit. Retiring US, Senator Jeff flake. Named flake? Was caught on camera today on the Senate elevator just being derided by three? Three. Female protesters. You want to use a different word, but I won't. And he sat there with his head down. While these women just chided him about everything. I didn't write down the name of the Twitter account that captured at all it was all staged. Then Jeff flake goes into into the Senate Judiciary committee hearing. And just before the gavel ends the hearing. So that they can proceed to the vote on whether or not to forward the nomination of Brad Kavanagh to the floor of the United States Senate. After the gavel is closed or pounded. And it's time for the vote. Suddenly Jeff flake and Chris coons? Disappear into the anteroom. And everybody's looking around and pretty soon. Lots of senators are getting up and going into the anteroom small room just off the hearing room. And then the reporters start to speculate about what's going on. And then Senator flake comes out and announces that he will indeed vote to report the nomination of Brad Kavanagh out to the floor of the United States Senate for a four vote on this condition. The Federal Bureau of investigation. Conduct a limited background investigation. Limited in time and scope to one week and to the allegations made this far. I don't know what that means.
