"Well, we have no choice but to wait and see and hope for the best. Oh. God. So. This bitch. Amy. Corny Barrett. She's a conservative judge serving on the Federal Court of Appeals. She was a law clerk for the former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. That's right. There were two of them. and. They were a stakeout died at the same time and she was one of the finalists to replace Anthony Kennedy. But she lost that spot to Brookhaven on interesting little fun fact little fun fact cause a rapist will always win over a woman and a man who doesn't want you to get an abortion. That's right put on the map by California Senator Dianne Feinstein who said to Her during her confirmation hearing to the appellate court in two thousand, seventeen quote the Dogma lives loudly within you the dog must Senator Feinstein is talking about is Catholicism. Amy Corny Barrett is a lifelong ambitious Catholic who took advantage of every protection that religious extremism affords you a person never has to seem racist or sexist or homophobic or Zena phobic if they have religion to hide behind. Amy Corny Barrett knew this and to give herself even more protection for her bigoted views and make no mistake. That's what they are bigoted. But she's never had to apologize for bigotry or even speak to it because she adopted two children from Haiti, and though that's a beautiful and generous thing it was also self serving with those adoptions. She insulated herself from accusations of white supremacy, racism and xenophobia all in one fell swoop. Regardless of what she does on the record is a lawyer as a teacher or as a judge, those two kids make it. So no one can ever call her out for what she is a complete and utter bigot. POOP and with that, we commence with the clips so you can listen and judge no pun intended for yourself. So, in the first clip, Senator Amy Klobuchar from Minnesota asks, Amy Corny to define what she calls super precedence. Okay. Apparently, super precedents are precedents that have been decided by the Supreme Court, which are set in stone and are in no danger of being changed or reverse. Let's say so things like interracial marriage and women's suffrage aren't up for discussion as opposed to a woman's right to choose gay marriage, which can be taken away at any moment and the funny thing is if you think about it, they worked super precedents until they were. You know what I mean. They weren't there wasn't just immediately allowed now it's become a super president precedent was also super precedent does not that's like a it's almost like a made up thing. Yeah, it's not. It's not in a law book. Is it not a super precedent? Is Not in the it's not. I didn't know but that's like in the thome. That's a thing that. Rabbis would say like it's this. It's this. It's this. It's something you've. Made up no one's fighting for that. So we don't that's not an issue anymore we'll just let amy corny show you herself. Is Row a super precedent. Define Super Precedent. I'm I I. Actually I might have bought some day I'd be sitting in that chair I'm not I'm up here. So I'm ask people use super precedent differently. Okay. The way that it's used in the scholarship and the way that I was using it and the article that you're reading from was to define cases that are so well settled that no political actors and no people seriously push for their overruling answering a lot of questions about row which. I think indicates that road doesn't fall in that category and scholars across the spectrum say that doesn't mean that rose should be overruled but descriptively does mean that it's a k. not a case that everyone has accepted and doesn't call for its overruling I don't think. So here's what here's what's interesting to me. You said that Brown is and I know my time is running out is a super precedent. That's something the Supreme Court has not even said. You have said that. So if you say that, why won't you say that about Roe v Wade a case that the courts controlling opinion in that planned parenthood AKC case has described as a super precedent. That's what I'm trying to figure out. will senator I can just give you the same answer that I just did I'm using a term in that article that is from the scholarly literature. It's actually one that was developed by scholars who are. You know certainly not conservative scholars who take a more progressive approach to the Constitution and again you know as as Richard Fallon from Harvard said, is not a super precedent because calls for its overruling have never ceased. But that doesn't mean that rose should be overruled. It just means that it doesn't fall on the small handful of cases like Marvez Madison and Brown, versus the board that no one questions anymore is United States Virginia military is that Super President Senator few continue to ask questions about super precedents that aren't on the list super precedents that I discussed in the article that are well acknowledged in the constitutional literature. Every tiny ask the question I'll have to say that I can't great it. Okay. Well, I am then left with looking at the tracks of your record and where it leads the American people. Yeah apparently it's GONNA lead to US losing our right to marriage losing right to choose and losing all right of. The point is. They know there's no way in a fucking cold God damn hell. They're going reverse brown versus the board of Education and. There isn't a scholar on the planet because we're going to use that term very specifically who thinks Roe versus Wade should be reversed. The only people looking to reverse that are religious fucking insane zealots. That's it. Now, Senator Amazing Hirono from Hawaii. ENGA- and that's okay. But thing is there are no gay people on the Senate Judiciary Committee and similarly to how there were never any black members of the Senate judiciary? Committee until twenty seventeen when Cory. Booker and Kamala Harris got elected gay people depend on non gay people to look out for our rights in these hearings because we don't have any representation in them and all of the Democratic members of the committee brought up gay rights in one form or another but it was senator amazing her own who really ripped amy corny anew asshole. Looks can't kill but slow clap for the homicidal is of Maisy Hirono who gave it her best effort Not once, but twice, you use the term sexual preference to describe those in the Lgbtq community and let me make clear sexual preference is an offensive and outdated term. It is used by anti lgbtq activists to suggest the sexual orientation is a choice. It is not sexual orientation is a key part of a person's identity that sexual orientation is both. A. Normal expression of human sexuality and immutable. Was Love that part of the majority's opinion in Oberkfell, which by the way Scalia did not agree with. So, if it is your view that sexual orientation is merely a preference. As you noted. Then the LGBTQ community should be rightly concerned whether you would uphold their constitutional right to marry I. I would like to just make a quick follow on to some of Senator Horon comments. One I can't comment or grade existing precedent and I wanna be clear that the point of doing that is not to say whether they agree or disagree with it it's not implicitly we can tell us agree with it, but we can tell designed to be neutral. So. Clear. WHO disagreed with gay marriage or not? He objected. Not, indicating, disagreement with it. The point of not answering was to simply say inappropriate for me to say response, we know your answer. To say that I certainly didn't mean and you know would never mean to use a term that would cause any offense in the LGBTQ community. So if know you're calculated for that I, believe that simply meant to way too fucking calculated holding with respect to same sex marriage. Now, we wouldn't be highlighting a Senate judiciary hearing if we didn't give you senator and soon to be Vice President Khama Harris. SCOPED in from the campaign trail to devour amy. Corny and all I have to say is that the is Lucky Comma Harris wasn't there a person because she'd be nothing but shoot up carcass laying by the side of the Buchan Capitol building here she is getting backed into a corner by Kamla Harris on climate change. Do you accept that covid nineteen is infections. I think yes I do accept the cove in nineteen is infectious that that's something of which I feel like we could say you take judicial notice of it's an obvious fact. Yes. It Smoking Causes Cancer. I'm not sure exactly where you're going depends on how much I'm being paid. Cautions..

"Either side and no matter what somebody's policy preferences are about the I completely agree with you. They shouldn't be trying to undermine the policy that Congress enacted there. It said she will let her personal views, guide her legal opinions and refuse to answer questions and how she might rule on issues. Democrats do not have the votes to block her. Well, the Democrats concern Lee delay the process, but not by much. Jonathan Turley is a constitutional expert of Fox News contributor and professor of public interest law at George Washington University. Last week. We thought that perhaps the Democratic senators were signalling that they wanted to get beyond this. It had not played very well in terms of the hearings. Judge barrettes support had gone up significantly as people saw her on television. However, after the hearing, and after Senator Feinstein hug to the chairman, Lindsey Graham, there was a backlash on various sites demanding that Feinstein stepped down from her position on the committee. And also demanding that the Democrats become more aggressive, so that may encourage some last minute maneuvers just to satisfy the Democratic base. But at the end of the day, there's not much they can do beyond delaying a day or two. Ironically, it was Senator Dianne Feinstein, California who brought forward the accuser in the judge Brett Kavanaugh. Supreme Court confirmation process Back in 2018, which led Teo really long Drawn out battle that lead ultimately to his being confirmed. We've not seen anything like this in the Amy Cockney Barrett situation. Do you expect any last second attempts or no? Well, this would be the time to see that type of maneuver A CZ. You recalled the cabin. All confirmation hearing had gone rather smoothly. And it was really around this time that They moved on these allegations. It's clear the Democrats were aware of the allegations during the confirmation hearing itself, but decided to wait. Bye to throw this in on the final stretch. We've not heard anything that suggests that they are preparing to do something like that, with regard to Judge Barrett. They really are staying out of her reach. You know, they they hit her with everything they had in her appellate here. And she proved to be something of the Rocky Balboa of nominees. I mean, they hit her with everything but a chair and it really didn't take her down. You sort of saw in the last Hearing that they didn't want to get into another scuffle with her. So they did press her Democrats, especially on how she might vote on issues trying to press her on abortion rights on Obamacare on other issues that are contentious. But they ultimately claimed that she was being evasive and they are calling her to extreme that she might be endangering all these cases and all of these issues from the perspective of the left. Did she not answer more questions and other nominees? Was it different This time? It all? Actually, I wrote a column in The Wall Street Journal, saying that she was in some ways more candid than any nominee. I've seen Did. She started out the questions with one of the most robust, full throated endorsement of originalism that I had heard from a nominee. Plenty of nominees, including people like Elena Kagan called themselves Originalist. But there it may be the first to actually mean it Since Scalia. Her view of originalism is as pure as it gets, she said. The words don't change what time you have to look at what they meant. At the time of ratification. I heard that degree of clarity from prior nominees. Alright, So does that give insight that she's going to be this wildly right wing conservative judge like some Democrats have been claiming. No, it doesn't I That is. Indeed her view of concerts. Interpretation is one that shared by many judges and lawyers. What concerns me is that we saw something new in this hearing, Democratic senators said expressly That they would vote against her because they expected her to see if they expected her to vote against the A. In a case coming up on November 10 And Senator Coons said just recently that she was unqualified because of her judicial philosophy. That is Something new for confirmations for most of our country's history, senators Would ST almost mantra like that they will vote for a nominee despite their disagreements with their judicial philosophy if they were qualified. Now, Senator Coons is saying. You're not qualified. If I don't agree with your judicial philosophy, any of these other senators were saying I'm voting against you because I think you're going to vote the wrong way in an actual pending case. All of that is rather new and rather dangerous for confirmation here Well when Barack Obama was a senator before he was president, he had said that he would use Ideologically or ideological issues and how a judge might rule as a litmus test. He voted against John Roberts. He voted against Samuel Alito, two of the Bush nominees at the time, so it's not like it's brand new, right? It's not, but it has not been this prominent with all of the Democratic senators. After all, the Ruby Ginsburg was confirmed almost unanimously. Those Republican senators clearly disagreed with her judicial philosophy. So this is I think a dangerous thing because you are seeing senators effectively demanding from the nominee and assurance on how she will vote. And that goes against ironically enough. The Ginsburg Ruth Bader Ginsburg refused to do that. And these Democratic senators are honoring her legacy by destroying Democrats want the winner of the election to fill the court vacancy back in 2016 when Republicans refused to consider President Obama's nominee, then candidate Donald Trump also believed that the election winner should decide the whole ball game changed when I saw the way they treated Justice Cavanaugh referring to the sexual assault allegations, and he told the NBC News town all last week. I have never seen any Uman being and I'm not just.

Amy Coney Barrett: Trump Supreme Court nominee sidesteps questions
"Judge Amy Cockney barrettes getting a lot of pointed questions. For members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Let's go live to Capitol Hill, W. GOP's Mitchell Miller today on the Hill, Senator Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the committee, fired off several questions on major legal matters, including abortion. Do you agree with Justice Scalia's view that row was wrongly decided, if I express a view on a precedent, one way or another, whether I say I love it or hate it. It signals to litigants that I might tilt one way or another in a pending case, And in response to questions from Republican Senator Chuck Grassley and Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy, Barrett made it clear she's had no discussions with the White House about how she might rule in cases involving the affordable care act or the upcoming election. It would be a complete violation of the independence of the judiciary for anyone to put a justice on the court as a means of obtaining a particular result. Republicans have praised Barrett during the hearing, which is now in a brief break, Senator John Cornyn pointed out. She has no notebooks in front of her, except for a small white pad.

News nation Washington correspondent Ashley Kits, supporters and opponents of Judge Amy Cockney Barrett demonstrated outside while inside the Supreme Court nominee appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Democrats like Senator Cory Booker painted a dim picture of how barrettes confirmation could impact the nation. States may write laws. They could subject women who have miscarriages. Two investigations to ensure they didn't have abortions. California Senator Dianne Feinstein focused on Barrett's potential role in striking down the affordable care Act. The case that's before the Supreme Court next month, Judge Barat You've been critical of Chief Justice Roberts for his 54 opinion. Upholding the law. Although Democrats say the Supreme Court seat should not be filled this close to an election, Republican Chairman Lindsey Graham says there's no reason to delay She's been a circuit court judge at the seventh Circuit. Since 2017. She was confirmed to that position. To buy parts with about partisan vote. She has heard hundreds of cases in that capacity. For her part, Judge Barrett promises to be impartial.

"Capital Hell, some of them joining virtually because of the covert 19 threatened some of them already tested positive. But the state was step very early by the ranking member of the Democrat Party. First of all that this is what they call an unseemly Hypocritical process based on the Republicans, actions dating back to merit Garland But Senator Dianne Feinstein she like so many of our colleagues framed this entire process as being about life or death for the affordable care act, really an attempt to fear monger as we are just now 22 days. Before the election. You can call it fearmongering talk about a reasonable warning but saying that's what this is all about. Cut six and filling. Judge Ginsberg See, the stakes are extraordinarily high for the American people, both in the short term and for decades to come. Most importantly, healthcare coverage for millions of Americans is at stake with this nomination. So over the course of these hearings, my colleagues and I will focus on that subject. And boy, did they ever let me give you one more example. This is Senator Sheldon Whitehouse cut 10, this Supreme Court nominee has signaled in the judicial equivalent of all caps. She believes the affordable care act must go and What the president President Protecting the doesn't matter. Senator Whitehouse in others making the case that because this this case is coming up, literally a week after the election Is when the Supreme started take it up that that will be the end of the now There's a lot of legal experts that don't think that's the case that it's not a foregone conclusion because the question at hand is we know that the legislative branch killed the individual mandate. The question before the Koreas with that very critical part of the statute dead. Does that mean that the entire statute is dead or can it move on, albeit in a crippled form? That's what the Supreme Court in general is going to be decided one week after the election, and they believe that a judge any Cockney Barrett is Justice Amy Cockney Barrett. It will put that into jeopardy. Jonathan Turley, the Layla, your law professor was on Fox, and he said something very interesting. If you look at recent decisions about what they call severability Both Justice Cavanaugh and Justice, Roberts have said. In those instances, you have to separate those issues that a part of the law that dies does not mean the whole law dyes. And so he was saying that it's by no means that the Democrats are overstating The vulnerability of the affordable care act. I'm wondering if you process it that way, especially if you have pre existing conditions And we know the president has not yet articulated and doesn't apparently intend to what the replacement to Obamacare will be. Let's get back to our calls Robert in Sterling Heights as we look at this very unusual process. Hello, Robert. Oh, Hello, guy do what would I want to do if I'm gonna bring it casing from the court? I care about what the law is not who the judge is okay, and we had a lot of judges, especially here in Michigan, Cynthia Stevens, who overturned election law. With election not far off. That's not what I want. And another thing is, I think with Democrats have done, they kind of poll tested and focus grouped not to attack around a religion, even though they have in the past. Which he is. She's honestly looks like she's just a good judge well qualified as a matter of fact, in Republicans and many Republicans vote for Kagan and Sotomayor. They didn't make it political, and that was very recently. What they're doing is Cavanaugh courses. They're going along party lines. They know she's qualified. And the Constitution doesn't say President shall nominate. Replacement. It doesn't say he could. Doesn't say he should doesn't say he might want to see shall do it. Yeah, it's not may not in January. 20th 2021, You're correct when you said if the roles were reversed, the absolutely would push somebody through and Joe Biden did not tell us who is justices would be. He's given us the same port. He's saying elect me Then you'll find out my judge. Nominations will be just like Obama care. We have to pass the law, so we find out what's in it. Would you buy a car that way? Would you say I'll give you that? You know 30 $40,000 per car, even though I don't know what it is. Well, and he also won't tell us if he's going to pack the written that such a key constitutional argument in just moments ago when asked about it yet again, he got chip either way, we know joke and get And said, ah, that voters don't have a right to know. When? When asked Don't voters have a right to know? He said. No, they don't well on something so fundamental. I would tell you the focus groups that I've seen coming out of these debates. The one thing they seem to agree on. Is that they want the Democratic ticket to answer that question. As always, Thanks for your call Robert Bob is in Roseville. Oh, excuse me. I didn't see that. Bob has already dropped. Let's go Larry in Rochester Hills with some thoughts on this. Hi, Larry. Yeah, I think what they're going to well let for the Supreme Court justice, whether I like it, Alright, Don't it's constitutional. What I want to know is work over this court. Captain fiasco has come from to me. It sounds like another campaign from Trumpers that will Joseph takes a test for I. Q. He should take a drug test. Now it's a court picking, and it just seems like there's so many obstacles that are thrown up there because they really he's a noble man. He's old. Okay, but he's who we're going to have to select, Possibly And I just think that's court picking it really. It's how do we even know he's going to win the presidency? What? What? How relevant is it to me? That he Would or wouldn't have court pack, which hasn't been done by the way that's certainly between between you and your political.

Is they're getting rid, of semen. Because of the obvious connotations. Changing the position to say okay. Let's see. Senator Dianne Feinstein from California introduced the military aviators. Cancer Incidence Study Act after mcclatchy reported that military aviators may be at a higher risk of developing certain cancers. Let's see. There was a little bit of information here. The database would include every service member since nineteen sixty one who served in an aviator role. The legislation defines aviators, members of the aircrew such as pilots and Napa who they included navigators in their two. Members of the grand create usually asleep on me. I did that on purpose because we have several navigators listen to the show. Let's see. WHO SHOULD WE? I'm offended at airline pilot guy dot com has the email address. And members of the ground crew who worked on the aircraft pilots who have been lobbying for the legislation wanted to ensure that ground crew such as enlisted personnel who worked to launch jets aircraft carriers were included. Because, they were exposed to many of the same radar emissions or fuels. The bill requires a database to be completed within a year. So I guess they're assuming that. The radar emissions and fuel and the jets have something to do with this. With these cancers. Anyway. So that's good. That they're doing this and I guess that. I will be contacted at some point.

Why unlocking the Pensacola shooter's iPhones would unleash a privacy nightmare for iPhone owners
"An interesting story that started at the beginning of the week the fight for privacy is under way again between apple and the FBI after December six shooting at a naval base in Pensacola Florida was deemed an act of terrorism Attorney General bill Barr said that apple wasn't doing enough to help unlock the shooters two phones apple maintains that breaking encryption on one phone could endanger the privacy of all iPhone users so they refused to help although they did release a lot of other data to the FBI for more on this story we spoke to Rosie perper global reporter for business insider so the case from San Bernardino at that happened in twenty fifteen so essentially what happened was apple created an update to its iOS software and basically there were certain data on the phone that was no longer able to be accessed by law enforcement and so you need a passcode in order to get certain things like text messages and photos that's obviously of importance to law enforcement when they're dealing with a shooting case or a terrorism case and so after St Bernard you know they were able to get a hold of the shooters iPhone but unfortunately they couldn't access the data that they were looking for because it was under passcode encryption so at first they tried to crack it themselves but the NSA wasn't able to and so they went directly to apple ask them for help but apple said that creating any sort of hacking software would essentially put the privacy and security of all of its customers at risk because once you have that software available what is that software is used for in the future could potentially put more of their customers at risk an apple really valued his privacy and user privacy of its customers so it kind of refused to do that for the FBI which kind of set this whole feud between the FBI and apple in motion yeah and at the time the FBI sued apple but while all that was happening the FBI was able to contract with a third party to unlock the iPhone there I think it later on senator Dianne Feinstein from California said that the government paid nine hundred thousand dollars to this third party to be able to unlock that phone and then they ended up dropping the lawsuit against apple so it's kind of like a stalemate the FBI got what they wanted so they don't have to proceed with this lawsuit so now we're kind of added again the Attorney General William Barr accuse apple of not really doing enough to help and there's two phones in question here now that they are trying to open up and again the same argument for apple they said we can't do this because if we create a back door this leaves it open to any bad actor to do this to other iPhones obviously in the years since December Dino shooting apple's been able to progress IT security software even further so apple basically said that it's providing the FBI with as much information as they can but there's just still certain information that says if it provides to the FBI that would set a precedent and I think apple standing really firm on this issue I think whether there's some earnestly behind it or whether or not it's apple trying to save face they're really standing firm about not compromising the security of its users so what's gonna happen is unclear at this point apple is in a really complicated spot right now because it's not just apple fighting against the department of justice over something like this they have to contend with a bunch of foreign governments I think Australia passed a law saying they can compel tech companies to undermine their data security India has something the U. K. has something so if apple does this for the department of justice for the FBI then they have to kind of do it for all these other countries or what's worse for a big company like apple that I don't think they want they would have to stop operating in these countries so it's just a really complicated spot and as you mentioned the privacy of their customers is really high on their list it just seems like they can't do this that's kind of the argument that a lot of these rights groups have mentioned in and now with the Pensacola shooting case the American civil liberties union they defended apple and they basically said that if apple was to create this sort of back door software other governments other authoritarian governments might be able to access similar software and what they would use that software for that would be of concern in the future so that's something that they're really defending is this idea that if this software is created at all who gets a hold it and what it's used for in the future it's just basically a slippery slope in apple hasn't closed off the F. B. I. completely they say they won't create this back door for the access to the I. phones but they are giving them a bunch of other stuff I you know I cloud data and some other stuff too right there is certain data that is if you've got your I. cloud set up to your iPhone it can get automatically updated and I can get a stored in the iCloud but that information according to the FBI just isn't enough and what they have there certain gaps of information that they don't have and so they really want to see who the Pensacola shooter was working with and whether he had ties to any sort of major terrorist groups that sort of information is hard to discern from just the information that they have but at the same time apple is cooperating an apple things that it's doing its part so we're back at clash between apple and the FBI in terms of getting access to the data that the FBI thinks it needs and there's a couple of other little complications I think in this case in the Pensacola case the shooter either shot one of the phones or try to damage the phones so there's a question of like you know why can't the FBI just go through another third party and they can create something to get into the phone but a lot of people suspect maybe there was too much physical damage on the phones and maybe that's why they need apples help on this so there's still a lot of questions in play and there's no actual lawsuit or anything happening this time just yet right no not at the moment the FBI is preparing for what it's going to do in the future but at this point they're looking at the same kind of scenario that they were put in back in twenty fifteen to twenty sixteen so it's unclear exactly what's gonna happen in the future no trumps last at apple recently and what's going to happen next I guess we'll kind of mirror what happened in December nineteen okay yes so we'll see Rosie perper global reporter business insider thank you very much for joining us thanks so much for having
Pelosi not yet ready to transmit Trump's impeachment to the Senate
"For the past several weeks. There's been one burning question dominating this saga. When Will Nancy Pelosi? The speaker of the house transmit the articles of impeachment to the Senate and therefore launched the trial process in the Senate. While this morning Speaker Pelosi finally addressed at that point. Take a listen now in terms of impeachment. You'll keep asking me the same question. I keep giving you the same answer. As I said right from the start art we need to see that the arena in which we are sending our managers is that too much to ask of course addressing that point in an answering that question or two different things. A Pelosi later added that she's not holding onto the articles indefinitely and that she would probably transmit them soon soon. I've got to fantastic guests to help me make sense of all of this political gamesmanship in a few minutes will be talking with CNN. National Security and legal analysts. Susan Hennessy but I I'm joined by my colleague. CNN Politics Congressional reporter. Alex Rogers Alex. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thanks so much for me so it seems to me. After days. Days Days of stasis on this story we did learn in the last twenty four hours several things one as I just said speaker. Pelosi said she's likely to transmit these soon she's not going to hold onto them forever. To President. Trump actually asserted yet again today. He's opened. Witnesses named some witnesses. He's interested in of course. Course which are total non starters For the Democrats in terms of Adam Schiff or Joe Biden or hunter Biden or the whistle blower but is has said and he's going to really leave this to the Senate. We learned that Mitch McConnell the majority leader in the Senate went to the White House and briefed the president on what the contours of this trial is going to look like. So it sounds like the president has more information about Mitch. McConnell's vision of how this trial is going to play out then speaker. Pelosi does which is why she's still hanging onto the articles as we're recording this at least and Finally we've learned that there seems to be a strategic divide going on between the president and and his advisors and or some of his advisers and certainly the Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell in terms of whether or not he wants some very vociferous defenders from the House Republican Conference To join in defending his case in the Senate McConnell of course worried that Too partisan partisan of abroal may upset the apple cart with some of the moderate center. Republicans that they need to keep on board with the plan here so all of those. Those things have emerged in the last twenty four hours and yet Nancy Pelosi is still holding onto the articles of impeachment. What does that mean soon when you expect her to send these to the Senate or she said today today I'll send them over when I'm ready and we're still trying to figure out what leverage she has Senator Majority Leader Mitch? McConnell said yesterday that she has none he has the votes. It's a simple majority devote Democrats are hoping that there are four Republicans to join them. But now we've talked to Susan Collins. Lisa Murkowski Mitt Romney and all of them are on Mitch McConnell. Donald Seidel Miss. So we're wondering here. What Nancy Pelosi is looking for if there's any possible signal that she could get from The Republican leader. She says that she just wants to see the rules. Mitch McConnell says let's just go back to the nineteen ninety nine precedent under Clinton and. Just run with that now she. It seemed to me when she walked into a press conference. Today Should two main message point. She wanted to hit when it came to the issue of impeachment. One was. She's not buying this whole Mitch. McConnell nineteen ninety nine Clinton enroll. She thinks he's not portraying how those were set up namely the Clinton rules were devised in a bipartisan agreement. And I think there was one hundred hundred nothing vote supporting them. In the United States Senate That was hammered out with the blessing of the leaders. Trent Lott and Tom Daschle. Nothing like that is going on with McConnell when Schumer right now is Pelosi's point number one so she doesn't By his argument that this is playing by the Clinton rules. That was one thing she wanted to drive home but number two it seems she wanted to sort of list Her reasons that she thinks she's been victorious in this decision to hold onto the articles articles namely that it has put the issue of documentation and witnesses front and center in a way that if the articles had immediately gone over in December. Maybe they weren't. What do you make of that? I mean her point is that there's a number of witnesses who have not been Who have refused to testify and the Clinton Peterman process? All of those witnesses had already talked before that that evidence was already out there But the thing is that she right now is losing not only those moderate Republicans Republicans at your needs but also Democrats. There's a number of them who've said in the past couple of days that let's just let's just get this started senator. Dianne Feinstein said if we're going to do it she she she should send them over. I don't see what good delay does. She's later walk that back. Other Congressmen have also Adam Smith at today on CNN. Basically said let's transmit these articles goals that's during the Senate trial and then he later said I misspoke wait. I missed how Senator Feinstein walked back to her comments. What did she say? Because it's all those comments my eyes widen so I I missed the walk back. She said today that those comments are now being taken out of context okay. I don't know if that's a real walk back. They're not out of context are they. I don't know vow. The the thing though is what does holding the articles now do for the Democrats. Are they really going to be able to change the rules. Or they can get these witnesses upfront. No Mitch McConnell has the votes. And he's ready to go he's made that crystal clear what What do you make of this concern concern that? McConnell has apparently expressed that Having some very vocal House Republican conference members who were Lord Diehard trump supporters at all costs be part of his defense may upset the apple cart of sort of the Republican unanimity. That you just described that he's been able cobbled together. How is how big of a concern do you sense? Is this for McConnell. So we have some reporting from Sarah Westwood Phil Mattingly came out today. There's there's this struggle between some of president trump's allies who think that a legalistic argument by Patsy. Baloney the White House counsel so is Not going to be good enough. You need to win this. It's it's not only trial but it's somewhat theater have your most for syphilis. Allies Congressman Jim Jordan Congressman Mark Meadows. Some of these people who can articulate the president's argument in different style. Then you also have Senator Mitch McConnell's view. It appears where those those people are going to turn off exactly the Republicans that you need. You Need Susan Collins. Lisa Murkowski the people people in the middle so the president right now is receiving this conflicting advice. And we don't know yet. I don't think the decision has been made on who is going to defend the president and the trial yet. Yeah no we have not heard that decision we know that Pets Bologna and his team. The White House counsel on his team Have put together a plan and that there seems to be one but we don't yet know exactly who will be doing the defending of the president. And I think that the president who we know consume so much Fox News and sort of has this echo chamber constantly feedback loop in in. His mind doesn't always necessarily think the way McConnell does about Are we just doing a full on brawl with the Democrats here or is there work to be done with your own party here and McConnell's clearly trying to make the case Mr President don't lose sight. Yes you're going to be acquitted but you've got to still keep your party on board. I think right now if you just run the nineteen ninety nine Clinton trial rules you will see each side making their argument and then a couple of days of questions from the senators and then you vote whether to dismiss the whole thing right then there or then to also get into the witnesses that Democrats think will bolster their case my final question for you before we go to break you say that Democrats will boast of their case. What about the fact that Donald Trump is still out there saying he wants them? Witnesses I Mitch. McConnell sort of in a no witnesses camp. He doesn't necessarily want to see Joe Biden or Hunter Abidin or the whistle blower called. So there's a difference there too is they're not of course There are some Republicans who want to see honor Biden. They WANNA Have I think Senator Ron Johnson said this week the full gamut of witnesses. But you've also seen Senator Susan Collins who you know really the crucial senator here say a that it would be inappropriate inappropriate for president trump to say to China investigate on our Biden Susan Collins once witnesses But we we don't really think that means also hundred I think we've that means you know people with firsthand evidence other people who testified before the house. Yeah actual impertinent witnesses to this What these articles of impeachment are about and therefore pertinent to this trial? Alex let's take a pause and our conversation for the moment legal analysts Susan. Hennessy will join us right

"As the house moves closer to impeaching president trump members of the Senate today questions the justice department inspector general about the origins of the F. B. I.'s Russia probe DOJ inspector general Michael Horowitz is report found no evidence that the FBI's investigation of the trump campaign was politically motivated but he also told the Senate Judiciary Committee today that there were significant errors in the FBI's investigation although we did not find documentary or testimonial evidence of intentional misconduct we also did not receive satisfactory explanations for any of the errors or omissions we identified meanwhile the house Judiciary Committee is expected to convene at seven PM eastern standard time tonight to begin finalizing the articles of impeachment before a float of the full house likely next week Phil Ewing joins us now to discuss all of this he's election security editor for NPR infill Horowitz looked into the FBI's investigation of that twenty sixteen trump campaign and possible ties with Russia Republicans have highlighted that the FBI is serious performance failures as detailed by Horowitz what's been their line of questioning they want to drill down very closely on one specific part of the FBI investigation the surveillance that officials conducted on a one time junior foreign policy aide to truck came Carter page who was the subject of a number of renewals by the foreign intelligence surveillance court from twenty sixteen and twenty seventeen and what Horowitz discovered was as you mentioned there were many problems with air is affected a mission and practices by the FBI and the justice department in getting and then sustaining that surveillance the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Lindsey Graham has stroll down very strongly on that as part of what's been a years long effort by him and the president in their supporters to tear down federal law enforcement the justice department the FBI in their view the problems with that case are emblematic of wider problems with the FBI and the justice department and that's been a leitmotif for some time yeah I want to ask you about Attorney General William Barr he's attacked this report several times in the past couple of days what impact hello do you believe his comments had on today's hearing well the ranking member senator Dianne Feinstein of California asked for what's the inspector general about those comments and he said that he didn't have any undue influence from the Attorney General before submitting this report but he also re stated that he believed there was an appropriate predication as he said for the F. B. I. in twenty sixteen to open the investigation into the Russian attack on the twenty sixteen election I mean there really wasn't attacked there really was skulduggery that took place which has been uncovered by investigators and has been the subject of so much focus since then if senator Gramm focused on the details here about the page story the Carter page story senator Feinstein and Democrats want to talk about the big picture that this really wasn't attack that it really was Russia and not another nation has and has become the subject of controversy more recently here in Washington and that the FBI and the justice department and other intelligence agencies were justified in responding to the information they were getting twenty sixteen and trying to figure out what was happening in that report about it to Congress and the American people as they have yeah you've mentioned the committee's ranking member senator Dianne Feinstein and Democrats have focused on the conclusion that ho it's found no evidence of political bias or improper motivation let's hear what she had to say I believe strongly that it's time to move on from the false claims a political bias and those who showed great interest in the question a politically motivated investigations against president trump should show the same concern about politically motivated dated investigations requested by the president or his Attorney General is this hearing today likely to bring any clarity to the ultimate poll well you know point of this report are we just talking past each other Republicans and Democrats the answer to your first question is no among other reasons because there are pages from the horror was report that are redacted and so there are still things about the story about Carter page for example that we do not know because they're continuing to be withheld by the government the other question which senator Feinstein alluded to in those comments you played is that there's another report about the investigation still pending from the justice department Connecticut U. S. attorney John Durham has been asked to do his own look at this he's already said in an unusual statement when Horowitz's report came out that he disagrees with some of the things that are in that report so we have a whole other chapter of litigating about this to look for to whenever Durin's work is complete okay my last question with you for the few seconds that I have with you the mark of the impeachment articles begin tonight what are you watching for well that's going to be a normal process but also very contentious all legislation whether it's naming post offices are impeaching the president has to go through the same practice so Democrats wanted to be by the book but we expect minority Republicans on the committee to make it as painful and drawn out as long as possible with procedural motions and other tech attempts to delay it that's Phil Ewing election security editor for NPR thank you Phil

That is now so strongly divided over. Political beliefs. In fact, shift says the president often blames the media for simply pointing out things that he says which are provable wrong. I'm not surprised he wants to blame. The presi blames the press for reporting on his own malfeasance, which is exactly the location of the press shift.

"US Senator Dianne Feinstein faced off against her challenger state Senator Kevin de Leon this afternoon in San Francisco. This was not a traditional debate. It was instead billed as a conversation at the public policy institute of California. But it was the first time Feinstein has shared a stage with an opponent in eighteen years cake. UD's politics reporter marisha Lagos's was there and Marita Feinstein is running for her fifth term now she's well ahead in the polls. But daily on has been putting some pressure on her. And I'm wondering did he make any headway for himself today? I think it's hard to tell. I mean, this was as you mentioned, a very sort of polite. Moderated conversation he didn't land any huge punches. But I think that he did succeed in illustrating the very big differences between these two especially when it comes to their sort of approach to politics. You know, he's fifty one he has come up in the last decade of California politics in France. Stein's been in Washington for twenty six years. She lived through some very tough eras like the Clinton years, but also some more bipartisan eras, and I think that you saw that. And so I think for people who have questions about Dianne Feinstein, especially on the left, you know, if they watch this. They will get a sense of how different he would be if he were elected, and what about policy differences where there any stark policy differences there. So it was interesting. I mean, they agreed on a lot of things they agreed on their opposition to the delta tunnel is they agreed on how sort of appalled they were by the family separations at the border. They agreed on gun control. But they didn't agree on one. Big thing that Democrats are talking about which is universal healthcare. Here's how Senator Feinstein talked about her position on healthcare. I believe in universal healthcare. The question is how in get it. Whether we shift everything that medical care onto the federal government or we do it in steps. Have the public option of a plan put together by the government that people could voluntarily opt into because it was competitive and essentially take steps like that. And they Leon he's a strong believer in Medicare for all. That's right. I mean, he's framed this as sort of a priority issue. He said that everyone talks about how expensive this is. But they don't talk about the wars we find and he made a point of noting that Dianne Feinstein voted for the Iraq war. Here's how he frames. This huge issue. I spent the vast majority of my childhood without healthcare coverage. And I think it's immoral that we have families today that have to decide whether they can make their mortgage payment or the rents or parrot paid for their healthcare costs whether they can but food on the table for their children, or if they can actually cover the expenses for medication. That's wrong. So he's really framing this as a human, right? And I think that it also speaks. Something you know, again, I said he's not trying to sort of go after her very aggressively. I don't think the format really allowed that he would have looked like a bully, but he did have these sort of subtle nods at many points to the big differences in the way that they live. I mean, he grew up the son of an immigrant mother who clean houses, which contrast is Dianne Feinstein who is very wealthy and has lived a pretty privileged life. And were there any differences on the impeachment issue of President Trump? I know the Democrats are somewhat split on that. Yeah. So Kevin de Leon said that he absolutely supports an investigation or an impeachment proceedings, but that it should be sort of a question of legality, not politics, which I think is trying to have it both ways a little bit Feinstein kind of Dermer during the debate. But afterward told reporters if there was an impeachment process. I'd be on the jury, and so I don't want to talk about it k- cuties Marie Salah goes, thanks where my pleasure. I'm Tara Siler news.
