Biden meets with Republicans on COVID-19 relief
"Republican lawmakers today that just wrapped up led by Senator Susan Collins to discuss New covert 19 relief package more in depth now from Elizabeth Schultz. He was covering it for ABC News and talked with Cuomo's Taylor Vance Ice Elizabeth. We know President Biden is in favor of a $1.9 trillion package. What is Senator Collins and her team pushing for well, they are wanting a much smaller packages. The reality here they're pushing for a deal worth $618 billion persons at $1.9, Trillion put forward by President Biden. It includes some of the same provisions like Monday like money for vaccine distribution, small businesses childcare in schools, and it also includes another round of stimulus checks. The Republican proposal includes stimulus checks for $1000. Or individuals. But it's a much smaller group of Americans that we've seen in the past and in President Biden's proposal, these would only go to people making up to $50,000 a year. The Republicans are calling it a much more targeted approach. Given how much economic stimulus has already been passed, they say, We just do not need to pass this trillion dollar amounts. Okay, Any word at this point, though, if the president's team or the president himself is willing to bite on any of that, not at all. We're hearing from the White House, in fact that this is a meeting to exchange ideas. Not to reach some sort of grand bargain. The White House has said time and time again that the risk is that not enough ages past versus too much, so they seem to really be standing by this nearly $2 trillion amount. Now. The question is if they're going to move forward in Congress, with a plan that could essentially passed by this proposed proposal without any Republican votes. So far, the House and the Senate have taken the first step to do that, in a process called budget reconciliation that would essentially allow this Broader package to pass to the simple majority in both the House and the Senate that we wouldn't need a bipartisan deal to be reached at the end of the day. So that's something that President Biden was really pushing for. On the campaign trail is this idea of bipartisanship. Now, As this meeting began between Republicans and the president, there was some news that broke from the Congressional Budget Office right about how the U. S economy. Is expected to recover. There is no notably today that Congressional Budget Office upgraded its forecast for the economy and now expects GDP growth to reach its pre pandemic level. By the middle of this year, so this complicates the negotiations a little bit, and that the forecast seems a little bit rosier than had previously been thought. At the same time, the CBO says it's going to take years for the jobs market to fully recover with millions of Americans. Well unemployed and the White House response to this was essentially that even if the broader economy looks like it's going to come back, there's still so many people who need aid to pay their rent. You cannot get through the day to day and there is no question that we need more money to get these vaccines after people so they're still standing by their kind of push for more stimulus, And they say that really they're just cannot be enough. Aid right now, even if the outlook is looking a little bit better here and just for my own clarification that this CBO congressional budget office estimation that's assuming that there wasn't another sort of relief package passed, right. That's correct. That's based on the current outlook, just as it is, and I will know that there have been other afternoons out there that say that if the current package passed by Biden go through, that would significantly boost to growth even by a lot more. Alright. The ABC is Elizabeth shows
How to Read the New Testament Letters as a Whole
"This conversation is about how to actually read the New Testament letters as literary holes care from beginning to end you. You could have broke my brain talking about these letters being written and community. Yeah. Let's good. Yeah. New Appreciation for the lettuce come from Paul and his team team. Yeah, and there's a proscribed involved likely and it's just a new category, but it's really helpful for me to imagine that. And bring that in to what what does that mean. For this to be God's Word it's easier. Just imagine God zapping dude who transcribes something from the holy. Spirit Paul's. Meditating and praying in his study alone. Yeah. And they just here's the word of the Lord. To Talk. Feel more complex. But why can't God work in that way too. He clearly has. Yeah, we're, imagining. The scenarios from the actual data in the letters. You know that he names co senders yet co authors just not standard in first century letters. Yeah. There you go. So there are the product of Paul and his missionary teams in the working out the content over the course of years, and then as they travel around the roads on where we're GONNA go now is a little more practical and how to which is strategies and tools to actually read the letters and stuff. And learning how to identify what's important and things like that. So the first type of approach is just to understand the form of first century letters. I still remember learning how to like be taught how to write a letter. was, given. Template. Put. Certain things. Certain points on the page, the date upper left if in a homemade is your name. Yeah. I remember it felt weird to me. What would you put that information up at the? Left. and You write your name and address remember being like, what is it my address on the envelope? Why do I need? Yeah. Stuff like that. Do you ever do that? I can't even remember the last time. I actually wrote A. Paper letter but you. But if you ever opened up like we're document, yes, that's right and there's templates. Yeah. There's a letter typically, you're right I've done those. There's a business letter. Typically thing is I, don't create a I. Disease Tendencies of the one that's within page. Say there's a template for how you write letter. That's right and there was a template or templates. So here, we'll just summarize it in the most basic form. It's pretty intuitive. It's not rocket science angel letters in the centuries before especially in around the time of the postles you begin, the first words is your name. And then the receiver. So this called the opening address, you identify yourself who writing to and usually use some form of the Greek. Word Chorus, which means grace or favor to say, hello grace to you. So Paul to the church, and so and so Greysteel. There's almost always some little line of giving thanks to the gods for what after the opening address. After the opening, there's follows second main part of the form which is called the thanksgiving. Co you give thanks to the Gods I hear that you're in good health i. give thanks to the guts like then you get the body of the letter and then you get the closing. Letter, which is usually saying, hi to people if you want to travel plans a final prayer for the well-being or health or sometimes appraised the gods and then whatever PS post manner. So opening opening address, thanksgiving prayer just kind of a formality of sorts. And then get into it. Here's one Martin letter getting all the content. and. Then the closing that's right. And what you've got here is just a charts of like all of Paul's all the new letters and how they do this. And in the opening here like you've got First Second Thesselonians, collisions prescription you've got all the letters. And then you've got columns. Yeah, and you fill them out. So you've got Senator Collins Copied and pasted. The opening paragraph, Paul's the sender Yup. He gives himself the title usually. He does it and I the second Thesselonians. The next call movers called it the. Call the description. So the opening like here's what I am. Let me describe why that's right. It's important Dorian. Yeah. Yeah. So in other words when Paul the most basic form would be Paul Tucson. So yeah, he actually not one of his letters that way. He almost always adds a description of himself. Sometimes short, sometimes long he often names the group that produced a letter and then it comes from, they'll named people. So that's the first thing he He rarely puts just his name, usually his name in other people's names, and he usually describes himself with long or short descriptions, and so here's the basic point. Is that if you start comparing all the different beginnings of the New Testament letters, you'll notice when Paul or Peter or John is taking the. Forum and tweaking adapting it to the unique purposes of that letter. That's the basic idea.
Clashes While Deciding The Rules of The impeachment Trial
"Risk partisanship great progress yesterday as Senate Republicans and Democrats clashed on the rules governing the impeachment trial of president Donald Trump but while the proceedings presided over by Chief Justice John Roberts of the Supreme Court might have been easy enough to follow by those in the Senate chamber for those of us at home perhaps we might be forgiven for scratching our heads south to break it all down for us ABC legal analyst royal Oakes so in effect what happened yesterday was just deciding on the rules of engagement right exactly right the Democrats had several amendments they wanted what song they wanted to change the situation to add witnesses the ability to subpoena people and documents and in every case the Republicans voted it down but the good news for the Democrats is that they they get a do over on that after the opening statements which will pick the next week or so then there will be another year re visitation of the question in terms of whether or not to go for subpoenas and witnesses and the crack in the dam for the Democrats may be the fact that McConnell was apparently forced to change the rules from twelve hour days to eight hour days early at the urging of the moderate Republicans three or four of them that can switch power over the Democrats so if those same Republicans such as senator Collins of Maine was indicated she does like the idea of bringing witnesses and if they will join the Democrats than after the opening statements were likely to see much longer trial okay so Chief Justice are Roberts had to admonish both sides yesterday briefly explain what happened there you know the tempers just flared when you have the senators and their lawyers basically arguing with each other for twelve hours things really got out of hand in terms of just the the level of discourse in the he just calls to remind people that they are in the world's greatest deliberative body he wanted to make sure that they each other with respect it's not all he can do because of the unusual role Sir in a normal trial the judge completely runs the show makes all the rulings here every single ruling the judge might make could be over ruled by a majority of the Senate so his role is generally ceremonial but here just want to keep tempers in check all right well we're glad we have you to watch it moment by moment by moment for us thank you so much ABC's legal analyst
Joseph Maguire, Acting DNI, Faced Congress after whistleblower report
"Yuvan of it to Benjamin Sunland if you the people who become household names of the impeachment drama has played out with the house vote now behind us we wanted to catch up with another central character from the very beginning a man who occupies at least for the moment one of the most critical perches in the US government our story begins late on Friday the thirteenth of September which is when Adam Schiff chairman of the house intelligence committee released a cryptic letter we're gonna let our co host Mary Louise Kelley pick it up from here the letter runs four pages on official stationery the big CEO of the intelligence committee on top it is signed sincerely Adam B. Schiff it is addressed to this guy now here I am sitting before you as the acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire that's him testifying before Congress end of September he had received chefs letter which contained very few details but which marked the first public mention of the whistle blower complaint the letter accused McGuire of improperly withholding that complaint from Congress and subpoenaed him to testify now we heard McGuire say there he's the acting director of national intelligence and talk about timing threat to acquire what was your first day on the job my first day on the job was Friday the sixteenth of August and I think I set a new record in the administration for the anticipated before yeah yeah yeah that you had a heck of a first week didn't have much going for the Sir the questions there from New York Democrat Sean Patrick Maloney driving home the point that McGwire took over the job of running U. S. intelligence just four days after the whistle blower a US intelligence official filed the complaint McGuire suggested this was not the way he did version the job going either way Sir if I may my life would have been a heck of a lot simpler without becoming the most famous man in the United don't have settled debatable whether Joseph acquire was then or now the most famous man in the United States but if it felt that way it speaks to the extraordinarily awkward position the acting di and I found himself in caught between a White House looking for loyalty and lawmakers looking for answers since his appearance before the house intelligence committee McGuire has kept an exceedingly low profile no interviews we asked for one we're gonna spend these next minutes looking closely at the DNR job whether it matters that we are now past four months and counting with an acting director at the home the longest period without a Senate confirmed permanent leader of US intelligence since the job was created fifteen years ago today I'm asking Congress to create the position of the national intelligence director George W. bush in the White House rose garden two thousand four over in Congress they were listening we were breaking for the August recess and not I decided to call our committee back into session and we began the hearings Republicans Susan Collins of Maine she chaired the Senate governmental affairs committee I felt a sense of urgency because this was already two thousand for the terrorists attacks had happened on nine eleven two thousand one and the nine eleven commission had just released its final report it zoomed in on a failure to connect the dots that the CIA the FBI and others weren't sharing what they knew the report had ideas for how to prevent anything like nine eleven from ever happening again the central crowning recommendation a new position someone who could force intelligence agencies to talk to each other so Collins and Joe Lieberman then the committee's top Democrat got to work I remember you couldn't figure out what you were going to call this position to start with it was the need for a little while I was going to say and for awhile it was the Ned and I remember Joe Lieberman saying we can't call it the no that sounds too much like the net yeah it has to be the D. N. I. doesn't sound in power exactly what to call it was the least of their problems senator Collins told me the turf battles were in once it was vehemently opposed by not only the CIA but particularly the secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld because his department was going to lose considerable power over the intelligence community's budget which was funneled through the department of defense but as you heard his boss President Bush was on board and in December two thousand four Congress passed the most sweeping intelligence overhaul in nearly sixty years by the following February bush was announcing his pick for the nation's first director of national intelligence vesting these are stories in a single official who reports directly to me will make our intelligence efforts better coordinated more efficient and more effective the director of the CIA will report to John John was John Negroponte at the time he was US ambassador to Iraq I tracked him down here in Washington this week and asked about that last bit of the president's remarks that the head of the CIA would report to him that's correct there were gathering no it did but you know it it it took some socializing and some explain simply socialite water like a devoted some water had to go under the bridge in the fifteen years that that water's been flowing under the bridge the office of the D. N. I. has expanded to a staff of thousands the exact numbers classified as we can quarters building is gone up in northern Virginia so has all this worked has having India nine made us safer again the sponsor of the original legislation senator Collins I do believe that it has been successful but it's not perfect I I do hear a criticism bet they demand nice office has grown too big too bureaucratic so I'm not saying that we got it perfect leave right but compared to where we were we have come and the norm this way I heard a similar view from Mike moral who was among those who required some socializing two years Negroponte's word moral serve more than thirty years at the CIA he was president bush's briefer on nine eleven and ended up the agency's deputy director moral opposed creating video and I thought the more obvious solution was to bulk up the authorities of the head of the CIA botch I evolved over time significantly so by the time I left government in two thousand thirteen the last week that I was deputy director I actually got in my car and drove to Capitol Hill and met with senator Collins and senator Lieberman it actually thank them so I was I started out in one place and I ended up in a completely different place pressed as to why morale who now hosts the intelligence matters podcast pointed to his former gang delivering the president's daily brief in the old days he says it was pretty much only CIA material that made the cut whereas now with a D. and I overseeing everything the president's likely to hear from shore the CIA but also the state department's intelligence branch or the Pentagon's defense intelligence agency the deer so when CIA wrote a piece say on a China issue and de I a had a different view it would actually say at the bottom of the page de I a has a different view here it is here's why they have a different view and here Mister president is why this matters to you this difference matters to you so and and I think that makes for better intelligence support for the president John Negroponte the original GNI has mixed feelings about the job he once held here we are fifteen years later mmhm as an experiment has it worked I would say it hasn't failed I'm not sure it's worked fully I think it's still a work in progress on the positive side ambassador Negroponte points to changes he helped put in motion such as integrating the F. B. I. more closely into the broader intelligence community then he pauses and adds mistakes still get made obviously we see that from the inspector general's report just now with respect Carter page and all that I was an egregious seems to have been an egregious mistake of some kind which shows that those problems of coordination don't just go away because you say they should the reference there to the DOJ inspector general who just last week delivered a report documenting all kinds of errors in the F. B. I.'s application to surveil one time trump campaign aide Carter page now can we draw a direct line between the D. and I roll and the F. B. I. **** ups know what is fact is last week so president trump tweeting the FBI is quote badly broken which brings us back up to this moment the president attacking what he has come to call the deep state the house voting to impeach the president following an inquiry originally put in motion by a US intelligence community whistle blower the usual array of national security threats on the radar from Iran to China to North Korea and no sign of a nomination for the top job in US intelligence it is definitely a problem that I had the president has not nominated a permanent Senate confirmed Deanna Republican senator Susan Collins if the people in the intelligence community do not know whether the acting D. N. night is going to be there next week they are going to be less responsive to his concerns to his directives and bad is a problem so I would urge the president to make a choice my put her argument to someone with firsthand experience Michael moral can I was acting director of CIA twice so I know what I'm talking about here you don't feel as empowered as you would if you are Senate confirmed because you know you're not gonna be there that long just how awkward position then does Joseph McGuire find himself in four months and four days after being named acting director of national intelligence world points out that requires a navy Vice Admiral thirty six years in uniform this is a guy has actually been shot at right in combat this is a guy who's who's injured a lot but I think what he's learning is that the political fire is often more challenging than actual weapons fire navigating impeachment era Donald Trump dominated Washington in other words it's a different game morale as I hope he's learning

Supreme Court nominee steers clear of Ruth Bared Ginsburg criticism
"Today is the fourth and final day of the Senate Judiciary committee hearings on Brett Kavanagh's nomination to the supreme court in two days of questioning Cavanaugh refused to answer pointed questions on a host of subjects ranging from abortion to presidential powers. Always refusing to answer any questions pertaining to President Trump. Here's democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal. Asking him about Justice, Ruth, Bader Ginsburg. This is not political. This is about Justice Ginsburg, you believe that her quote mind is shot, and quote, Sarah, respectfully, you're asking me to after having read those comments tracking me to comment on something. Another person said, and I'm not going to do that. Joining me is Greg Stohr. Bloomberg news supreme court reporter who has been watching just about every minute of these hearings. Right. Greg. As much as I could. Okay. So I have to say that that exchange with Blumenthal. Surprised me? Even though I had heard much of what judge Cavanaugh said, why wouldn't nominee refused to say that an icon on the court has not lost it. Well, judge cavenaugh clearly was trying to stay as far away as he could from political controversies, and even though that was about a future colleague that was clearly a comment had he been critical of what President Trump said that was a comment that was going to be used for political purposes. And he wanted to stay away from that he didn't need to. This was a hearing. Where really his main goal was to avoid making mistakes, and that was an area that potentially could have been a mistake for him. Now, it seemed as if he went even further than Neal Gorsuch did in his nomination hearings in an attempt not to say anything. I mean, he refused to say which Gorsuch did that it's not right to denigrate judges because of their ethnic background. He refused to say he would recuse himself from certain cases, even though other justices have agreed to that. Is there a fear that Trump could rescind the nomination if he hears something he doesn't like? That's an interesting question. There were reports that Donald Trump at least disgust rescinding Gorsuch is nomination after he made those comments about being disheartened about about. Criticism of the judiciary or suggestions that a judge might be influenced by his or her ethnic background. I can't say what was motivating Brett Kavanagh. You are right. He did. He was even more careful than than Neal Gorsuch was and in trying to stay out of those areas. Did not give the Democrats that kind of answers that they wanted but Democrats are powerless to stop them. Given the Republican control the Senate

"The September. Six minutes past the hour and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham says he hopes supreme court nominee bright cabinet will test the waters to see if Roe v.

I hope he'll do if there's a case beforehand that challenges of our Roe v. Wade that he would listen to both sides of the story apply attest to overturn precedent. Preston is important. But it's not invalid I'm dying to see if he believes citizens versus United can be overturned. You're saying that you don't do his statement. For instance, the Senator Collins, I pro choice Republican that it's not a law means that therefore it can't be reexamined and conceivably overturn. It would be disqualified in my opinion, if he would. Not listen to both sides of the story. He will give great difference. I'm sure to Roe v way. But it can be overturned like every year the decision does he have the votes to win confirmation of the court. If he does well at the hearing, you will get my belief is fifty five or higher Gavin, of course, up to replace Justice, Anthony Kennedy, a swing vote on several social issues Republicans are confident he'll be confirmed.

"Road here is going to be people like senator collins republicans and i wouldn't just say the women you know let's hear from some of these men center flake senator mccain senator corker others who way in that you want someone that's gonna hold up hold precedent are roe v wade forty five years on the books as president and the second thing you do then when you have a nominee if you ask those questions and by the way we just asked brown v board of education and number of nominees and they answered it if they thought that was the settled law of the land yes you're not supposed to ask questions and they're not gonna talk about cases that may come before them but i don't know why you wouldn't ask about cases that are fifty one hundred years old and how they would have voted on those cases that's how you figure out whether they put their money where their my hope whether they're really going to respect precedent you know president met on thursday evening with senator collins as well as three of your fellow democrats who voted in favor of justice gorsuch including north dakota senator heitkamp she said of that meeting that she had urged the president to appoint someone who has quote pragmatic fair compassionate committed to justice and above politics but what do you say to your fellow democrats up for reelection in red states that trump dominated wouldn't they damage chances of reelection if they do not support his how many of these are senators that are going to do the right thing yes they have backed our party time and time again and that's part of who they are they do what they feel is best for their state on the other hand you have seen them united all forty eight democrats from bernie sanders to joe manchin standing up to defend the affordable care act so that people don't get their health care taken away from them so i think what they're doing is similar to what senator collins has just said they're saying we want someone who's not an ideolog on the bench while justice kennedy has been very conservative at times he wrote the opinion on marriage equality he was the deciding vote in the casey case that up held rovigo weighed that was him and so if you look at his the arc of his decisions and what he's done he want someone that's going to show that kind of independent and it's not gonna set us back to a time when a woman was made a criminal justice for exercising her own reproductive rights i just want to make sure we we move on a little bit here beyond trying to sway public opinion can you get the nominee to be delayed till after the midterms how can you really do that well procedurally that's going to be up to win the majority leader brings his forward but we can make this case that this is an ancient precedent in twenty sixteen the republicans took the position that you shouldn't vote on a nominee in an election year and it wasn't just because it was a presidential election you've got senator hatch saying he shouldn't do it in a political year we have roger wicker saying that the election will determine the type of senate that we will have his words so we should wait until after the election year so we will be strongly making that case and taking our every single senator should be able to meet with the nominee and while senator collins he's that figure sixty five days i believe it's longer when you look back through history at how long it's taken for a judge to actually have a vote on the floor and you want to make sure six six position justice sotomayor sixty six days but i wanna move onto are you saying that the court should start without a full bench or the justice kennedy should stay beyond his retirement date of july thirty first oh i'm saying that certainly the republicans made the argument 2016 that they could take their time and you could have eight on the bench i didn't agree with them back then but they set a new precedent all we're saying is you should let the people have a say in this critical position and have this vote after the election but to me what's more important is the decision that's being made right now by the president and that we must continue to weigh in on having a balanced person that's going to look at the law and look at precedent and make decisions based on the law and.

"First of all thank the panel i want to echo what senator collins has said but i do think echoing would eric said there's been some progress at least there is a recognition of how significant that is i think in the omnibus because of the work frankly that has been done by members on this committee that some of the resources that are state partners are looking for will be there we're going to want to see regular milestones on how we move forward on that i want to echo what senator king has said and we've spent a lot of time in closed sessions on this and that is the need for a country to have an articulated cyber doctrine i think that's going to raise a lot of tough questions i think it's going to raise questions about where does the responsibility lie to report and how far does it go it may raise questions around the whole question of software liability which has been an area that has been talked about for years but in this new round with the level of all abilities we have it may have to be explored i again i know i gave secretary manfred some challenging times last year but this question not just with election security but across the government of the slowness of getting security clearances we had a good hearing on this again yesterday we had a public hearing a couple of weeks back this just has to be a higher priority seven hundred thousand in arrears we've got only a few of the election security officials i would argue frankly we need fortune one thousand chief security officers should have security clearances as well so a lot.
