"Founder of colony capital, took the stand in his own defense and testified that his support for his longtime friend Donald Trump proved disastrous for him and his company. And Supreme Court Justice clarence Thomas gives Republican senator Lindsey Graham a reprieve from testifying before the special grand jury investigating criminal interference in the 2016 election in Georgia. Republican senator Lindsey Graham has been fighting a subpoena to testify before a special grand jury in Georgia since July. Now he's asking the Supreme Court to intervene and justice clarence Thomas has done that, at least temporarily. Graham is arguing that the constitution speech or debate clause shields him from having to testify. But a federal court rejected his arguments and ordered Graham to testify before the grand jury investigating whether then president Donald Trump and others illegally tried to influence the 2020 election in the state. That order was a firm unanimously by a three judge panel of the 11th circuit Court of Appeals that included two Trump appointees. Fulton county district attorney Fannie Willis wants to question Graham about two phone calls he made to Georgia Secretary of State Brad raffensperger in the weeks after the election. Raffensperger told CBS he took Graham's questions about absentee ballots as a suggestion to toss out legally cast votes. During our discussion, he has to balance clean match back to the envelope. The absentee ballots be matched back to the envelope. I explained our process after it went through two sets of signature match at that point they were separated. But then senator Graham applied for us to audit the envelopes and then throughout the bouts for counties who had the highest frequency error of signatures. And that I tried to help explain that that's because we did signature match. You couldn't tie the signatures back anymore. You know, to those ballots, just like with if you voted in person, my name is not on my ballot. And so it can't be tied back to me. It's really something that's been around for over a hundred years. The secret ballot. Graham has dismissed that interpretation as ridiculous. No, that's ridiculous. I

Why Is Lindsey Graham, Once Again, Acting So Strangely?

"Almost out of nowhere, senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina has introduced a bill, a proposed federal law at the national level that would outlaw abortion after 15 weeks. Now, Lindsey Graham appears to be kind of moving on to France. He seemed to be saying, well, we have the momentum with us. Supreme Court is overruled. Things are moving in our direction. Yes, the Supreme Court has sent the abortion decision back to the states, but why don't I up the ante by proposing a federal law? I mean, let's remember the federal law would apply nationwide. And Lindsey Graham didn't make a very interesting observation in introducing the bill. He said that he said that he's discovered that it is now routine for doctors who perform abortions to offer pain killing drugs to the fetus. And so Lindsey Graham in a very cunning way goes, wait a minute, you're offering pain killing drugs, doesn't that actually mean that at 15 weeks the unborn child feels pain? Whilst what you administer pain killing drugs. So what he is getting at is new research that, by the way, for many, many years, even decades, the left would say, like, oh, it's ridiculous. The unborn have no sense of real developed consciousness. They can feel anything. This idea that they feel pain is, I remember going back to Reagan Reagan at one point, do you remember this honey Reagan at one point suggested the fetus fields pain and there was a kind of roar of derision in the horror and ridicule at the time? Well, evidently, again, from the actions of the abortionist you see that it seems to be true.

"Stay informed, news radio 1000 FM 97 7. Good evening is 7 31. I'm Kelly blye and here are the top local stories. The state Supreme Court heard a case today that could decide if King County's jury selection process is racist, details from northwest news radio's Jeff pojo. In 2018, Paul rivers a black man was charged with assaulting his white girlfriend. He was convicted and under Washington's three strikes law he was sentenced to life in prison. However, his lawyers argue he was denied a fair trial because there was racial bias in jury selection. Attorney Kate huber says this isn't about the 12 jurors that were seated, but rather mister rivers was not given a jury pool from which he could draw his jury that was a fair cross section of the community. She argues that King County system of jury summons significantly under represents minorities and she's asking the court to mandate proportional representation in jury pools. She's also asking that rivers get a new trial. In response, the state concedes that minorities are underrepresented in jury selection, but opposes establishing new guidelines and argues that rivers should not get a new trial. It's unclear on when the justices will rule. Jeff pojo, a northwest news radio. A Seattle based railroad attorney says work life balance is a critical facet of the tentative contact agreement between the freight lines and their workers, attorney Jim vosovic, says the railroads are totally profit driven. He says they have cut the workforce to a minimum, and then they have them on call around the clock. Vinovich says there are also subject to punishment or even termination for taking too much time off, so they're afraid to take sick or personal time. You can't run a transcontinental industry like that and have it be sustainable. And we're seeing the results of that as labor has taken it on the chin. BNSF sent northwest news radio a statement which says it couldn't deliver without its workers and that it appreciates their willingness to reach an agreement to avert the potential interruption of service. Abortion of U.S. too will remain closed through at least Monday when the cruise battling the bulk creek fire will once again evaluate the situation. The 14 mile closure remains in effect between index and sky comish. Outrage from Democrats and pledges to mobilize voters after Republican senator Lindsey Graham introduced a bill that would ban abortions nationwide after 15 weeks with some limited exceptions, Washington democratic U.S. senator patty Murray says Graham's Bill goes against what the majority of Americans believe. Weeks in countries and everything else, I know what my constituents want. I know what the women and men of America want in vast numbers, and that is the ability to make their own healthcare decisions with their family. Their faith, their doctor, senator Graham is in backing down from the tough talk. So if you expect me to sit on the sidelines and watch the Democratic Party try to pass the most radical abortion law in the history of the country, you're talking to the wrong guy. Graham says the bill would align the U.S. with the rest of the world who he claims have similar bans.

"South Carolina's senator Lindsey Graham is scheduled to testify before the grand jury this coming Tuesday. But his office said Graham will appeal the ruling ordering him to appeal. Campaign 2022 now on WTO, Donald Trump wasn't on any ballots, but he was the big winner in last night's primaries. Wyoming congresswoman Liz Cheney lost in the geo primary yesterday falling to a rival backed by the former president in a rout that reinforced his grip on the party's base, Aaron Blake, senior political reporter for The Washington Post, tells us it was a perfect storm for Cheney's opponent. Not only is Liz Cheney the most outspoken Trump critic in Congress right now, leading the charge on the January 6th committee. But Wyoming was the most pro Trump state in the 2020 election. And the results that we saw on Tuesday night were very much in line with that. It was one of the largest losses by an incumbent in a primary 37 points that we've seen in many years and it really shows that there was no desire to hear the case that Liz Cheney was putting forward about Donald Trump. Meantime, Cheney tells NBC's Today Show she will do whatever it takes to ensure Donald Trump is never again anywhere near the Oval Office. Donald Trump continues to pose a very grave threat and risk to our republic. And I think that defeating him is going to require a broad and united front of Republicans, Democrats and independents, and that's what I intend to be to be part of. Cheney's describing her primary loss to Donald Trump act candidate Harriet hagerman as the beginning of a new chapter in her political career. She continues her role as co chair of the House January 6th committee and says she is thinking about a 2024 White House bid. In Alaska, former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has advanced to the general election for Alaska's soul seat in the House, along with a Democrat and another Republican, the fourth and final slot is yet to be decided. The three candidates we mentioned are also competing in a special election to fill the last few months of the late congressman Don young's term he died back in March. The winner of that election may not be known until the end of the month. Also, incumbent Republican senator Lisa Murkowski is among the top four vote getters in the Senate primary. So she also advances to November, Murkowski is the only GOP senator who voted to convict and then president Trump after his impeachment to face reelection this year. And former vice president Mike Pence is urging fellow Republicans to stop lashing out at the FBI over the search of former president Donald Trump's Florida home last week. Penn says he's been troubled though by what he calls the politicization of the FBI. He also says the Justice Department and attorney general Merrick Garland should be more transparent about what led authorities to conduct the search.

"Industry partner for over 130 years. Good morning, I'm Bruce Allen. And I'm Joan Jones. Teddy gellman is our producer and the top story we are following today. Congressional Republicans in and uproar over the FBI search a former president Trump's home in some are saying it's strengthening his desire to run again for The White House. Mitchell Miller reports from Capitol Hill. South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham shares the concerns of other Republicans. If you're a Republican conservative and you hear the FBI is going after Trump again, it sounds alarm bells. House Republicans are pressing for briefings from the FBI and raising the possibility of future investigations if they retake the house in the midterm elections. Graham has spoken with former president Trump this week and had this to say about his plans for 2024. The one thing I can tell you is that I believed he was going to run before. I'm as stronger in my belief now. One of the big political questions will Donald Trump move up and announcement before November. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller, WTO. Congressman Scott Perry says his cell phone was seized yesterday morning by FBA eye agents carrying a search warrant. The circumstances surrounding the seizure are unclear, but the Pennsylvania Republican has been a figure in the congressional investigation into former president Trump's actions leading up to the January 6th capitol insurrection. Former senior Justice Department officials have testified that Perry had an important role in Trump's effort to try to install Jeffrey Clark, a Justice Department official who was pushing the former president's baseless claims of election fraud as the acting attorney general. Perry calls the decision to serve him with a warrant and unnecessary and aggressive action. Former president Trump says that he will be questioned under oath today in the New York attorney attorney general's long running civil investigation into his dealings as a real estate mogul. The civil investigation involves allegations that mister Trump's company misstated the value of prized assets and misled lenders and tax authorities. Powerful explosions rocked a Russian air base in Crimea in what may mark an escalation of the war in Ukraine. At least one person was killed and several others were wounded, Russia's defense ministry denied the sake base have been shelled saying instead it was munitions that had blown up there. But Ukrainian social media networks were buzzed with speculation that it was hit by Ukrainian fired long range missiles. As the war drags on, westerners are being warned. The Putin regime is not just focused on taking control of Ukraine, western hostages are on his list. What happened to Paul Whelan and Brittany griner was not happenstance. It was a part of a Vladimir Putin planned to collect western hostages. And that's exactly what he is doing right now. Andre sold out of one of the world's premier Russian intelligence experts and on Vladimir Putin's most wanted list says this is a part of Putin's strategy. His building, his bank of hostages. Why? Because he needs to get his people out of prisons in Europe and the United States. So whether it's a rest, kidnapping, or even killing. He says Putin has reached.

Michael, thank you, coming up on 5 20 on Wall Street where line for the Bloomberg interactive broker studios this is Bloomberg daybreak. The UK prime minister seems to be hanging by a thread this morning and her high profile resignations of several members of his government and let's head to number 10 Downing Street now. Bloomberg's Lizzie Borden there with more on Boris Johnson and Lizzie Burton, Boris Johnson, if nothing else, is a survivor. How precarious is his position this morning? Yes, John, on the cover of the UK newspaper this morning. You've got them just describing his situation is on the brink and another refers to him as the greased piglet. Remember that moniker that he manages to vibe is situation that historically put his predecessors predecessors in the so much pressure that they resigned. Well, it doesn't look likely that he will do that. Last night, his health secretary Sajid javid, who is also a former Chancellor and Chancellor Rishi sunak quit. They said they couldn't handle having to stand up in public and defend his handling of the Chris pincher affair, this MP who was alleged to have been involved in sexual misconduct but was then rehired into the government as deputy chief whip. Both of resignation letters going hard with the venomous language about Johnson's integrity. And yet overnight, we've had even more junior resignations, even in the past few minutes. So our reporter, Alex Wickham, is this morning reporting that Johnson's on red alert for signs of a coordinated platform from his ministers to bring him down because if 6 or 8 of the cabinet quit, it would leave him struggling even to form a cabinet. Yeah. Are they an act of conscience or are these people after his job? Well, it's not a David and Rishi sunak have thought to have leadership ambitions. It's hard to have it has stood before. And they're going to be even more dangerous if they're on the back benches. They'll be able to more easily organize other MPs around them. Rishi sunak and his resignation letters said that he accepts that this may be his last ministerial position, but will perhaps he'll have a position in his own government who knows. But it wasn't all about this pest minster as it's called scandal. But at Rishi sunak, it was also about Johnson's handling of the post COVID economic recovery. He has said that he had to take difficult decisions if something's too good to be true, it probably is. He said his approach was fundamentally different from Johnson on the economy. So clearly he couldn't get on board with the fiscal boosterism that John sir Johnson wanted of him. Explain to us what the prime minister faces now with the there's a Q&A where there's a question session in parliament and explain to us also what the liaison committee is. Yes, so first of all, we'll have prime minister's questions weekly session where Johnson's first of all grilled by the leader of the opposition Keir Starmer and then other MPs in the chamber. But in previous weeks, kissama seemed to have missed an open goal. So because too much on policy rather than personality, when Boris Johnson has been at his weakest, then Johnson faces more questions from the liaison committee. That's the head of all the parliamentary select committees. So he'll be getting questions from all different angles and it will be a very tough crowd to please. Lizzie, if Boris Johnson goes, is that it for the conservative government in the UK? How does that work? Well, it's all a matter of process. So you could resign, but as I say, that looks highly unlikely. Another option would be for the 1922 committee of conservative back ventures to change its rules. So that will currently, Johnson has a year's grace period after his confidence boot that he just narrowly won. Until there can be another confidence vote that could take him out of leadership. They could reduce the grace period to less than a year. But lots of MPs will be worried that that could create a dangerous precedent for future prime ministers by making it impossible for them to govern if they constantly face a vote that's around the corner. Other MPs will be saying, is there really a viable replacement for Boris Johnson at the moment?

"So senator senator Lindsey Graham made headlines the last 24 hours saying outright bluntly that we need to try to encourage and support the assassination of Vladimir Putin. Regime change and more than that, we just need to try to get someone to cut the head off the snake. What is your take on this pretty preposterous proposal? I think it's reckless speech. I think it inflames the situation. I think if you're worried about your adversary being irrational, you know, saying things like you're going to assassinate and would actually make things worse. It's actually against the U.S. law. U.S. law for a long time has been that we don't assess the fascinate civilian leaders of other governments. And so now just wrong headed on every on every notion.

Lindsey graham was talking with show favourite martha mccallum yesterday about the disasters of this administration. Play that clip. Give me real quick quick. So all i can say is what biden has done is he surrendered the border to drug cartels cody's and human smugglers. He surrendered afghanistan to terrace. The taliban and al qaeda in a major terrorist attack is gonna come our way because between the combination of allowing afghanistan to fall back into terrorist hands and have a completely open and broken border here in the united states is just a matter of time that the terrorists come through that border to kill a bunch of us. And here's what. I want to say to the american people. The man on horseback is there to protect your family. The people rushing our border have put us all under siege. And i think the most inhumane things going on right now in america is that the men and women of the border patrol of been completely abandoned. Them god's scapegoat and treated like dirt by elected officials in the democratic party and this administration. So i'm not unhappy. I am pissed secretary. Marcus needs to resign.

We'll take a look at California is proposing to do with their ballot system. We have an election update for you in a couple of minutes. Also global later on Newsmax is excellent. White House correspondent Emerald Robinson is scheduled to join us here this morning. Let's start with phone call because Jamie and Gainesville has been patiently waiting, Jamie Good morning. All right. Maybe I spoke too soon. Jamie was, uh, couldn't wait or had to fall out of the soul. But the calls back Jamie, if you're still within listening range, Alright. I found this to be really extraordinary the other day. At the press conference, where Chairman Jo We got 10,000 Americans trapped in Afghanistan. We have allies that need to get out. And you know, you know my position on that. I don't think they should be coming to America. Should be coming the other host countries until they can be fully vetted if they indeed help the military and interpreting and translating and whatever their role was, and that can be fully vetted and verified. Fine. I'm OK. With if they wanted to help us time for us to help them, But until we can do that they should be going to Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Pakistan, Pakistan animal with shaky onto But anyway you know you get my drift. But here's what he said. And he didn't call out any other. There are all sorts of contractors, uh, in Afghanistan, all sorts of private businesses, government agencies, NGOs, et cetera. But Chairman Jo's ought to call out specific private companies for extraction. In fact, working in close coordination with the management of The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal. We have successfully evacuated all 204 of their employees in Afghanistan on US military aircraft earlier this week, 204 employees of major media companies Don't you think you want to keep those employees there? So you continue to shine a spotlight on what's happening? Look, if they want out, they want to come home. Fine. I'm okay with that. I understand. You know, these survival instinct takes over. But why do you think he singled out media companies? In that press conference. Because he knows he's getting hammered in the media. And this is his little extending of the olive branch. Look, I got you guys out. I'm expecting course, he only picked what five designated reporters are questions. The guy and he just losing it left and right, And I think the biggest mistake he's made is entrusting the Taliban on the so called safe passage and passport issue. The Taliban checkpoints they are letting through. People showing American passports. Now that's a different question when they get into the rush and crowd of all the folks just outside the wall near the airport. That's why we had to, I guess yet was it yesterday, the day before we went over the wall when brought in how many? 169 Americans. My sources have told me that. Uh, yeah. If you look American They'll let you through. But if you look if you're not, you know if you look Middle Eastern, if you look Afghani, and even though you have an American passport, you're not getting through. In fact, several people said they had to turn back. If they could escape. And then that will get right. In fact, Senator Tom Cotton is calling into question exactly what Joe Biden is been describing the Taliban have checkpoints set up all over Kabul. They're controlling, in many cases access to the gates at the airport. His priority needs to be getting American citizens out. But he needs cooperation to a degree from the Taliban to do so. So he's operating from a position of tremendous weakness. Well, that's that's his standard operating position. Is is tremendous weakness. Senator Lindsey Graham, who's a friend. Of Joe Biden. He and Joe Biden, their their their their bosom buddies. You know, because Lindsay's a rhino on so many issues And Joe allegedly was a moderate on so many other issues. Forget it. Now he's been He's long gone. Listen, what the friend of Joe said yesterday were duty bound to get every American citizen out. We're honor bound to get those Afghans who thought along our side out. And here's what I would say. If we leave any Americans behind. If we leave thousands of those Afghans who thought along our side behind bravely, Joe Biden deserves to be impeached for high crime and misdemeanor. Impeachment. He's not going to resign unless they let's cook up some kind of illness or, you know, mental fatigue or something. But again, something is going on here. I agree with Tucker Carlson. The media now has started to criticize into some circles. Some are still trying to hang on desperately tried to defend chairman job with their other media outlets. Jake Tapper at CNN. A few others have been very critical of his handling of this in Afghanistan. One wonders what is going on here. Is as Chairman Jo. He kind of served his usefulness. Now, he he deliberately allowed our southern border to get invaded because now they have something that's called silent Amnesty. Where they're caught the release. They're given a a court date or they have a deportation order, and now they're not deporting. So, basically, if you get into this country you're in Okay, So we have our southern border, not 1.5 million illegal aliens have deliberately been let into this country. And now we have Tens of thousands of Afghan refugees. We heard the number last hour 30,000 have been transported in the last 10 days or so. And of those a couple 100. Americans got to get invented, got to get them registered as as Democrats. Something's going on, Um,.

"I think you and years back an additional stimulus of $2000 when something just passed. That was $600 on top of expanded unemployment benefits. I think this would have been a lie. Not many Republicans have any would have crossed But again, the ideology has shifted a little bit from within the National Party to include this form of trump populism, and they understand that this ultimately is the benefit for the American worker. And that's a key constituency in that Republican base, moving forward both for midterm efforts and for the 24 cycle, which kicked off immediately once the race was certified, so As I think there's a certain group certainly on the Republican in the Republican caucus that for years kind of hammered President Obama on deficit spending on what the national deficit was and what the national debt was. It's interesting now to see them rush to kind of spending, you know, put another stimulus package through How did they wrap their heads around? Then How do they justify this number one to their political constituency on the Republican primary, but also to the American people as we continue to add trillions and trillions on to the national debt. How do Republicans kind of square that hole? Yeah, And that's ah. That's an interesting point Bill. I think that there's no doubt that the amount of deficit spending has skyrocketed. And obviously we are during your we're facing an economic and health crisis. Um, so things needed to get done early on the onset in order to get us through this, But, hey, I've got small Children. I'm worried about their future. We keep borrowing at the same time, you know, unlike in previous administrations, perhaps the economic instant there, um, structure behind the barring, you know, for example, money's cheap today, so perhaps Stairs. There's a little bit of easing and to say, Hey, we could borrow because the rates are so low. We could pay this back, etcetera, But I think that there's no doubt the Republicans are really gonna have to come to terms or what that means for their ideology and political agenda Moving forward Now you've seen some folks, will you? Senator Lindsey Graham was an example. Senator Graham if Republicans do hold the Senate Following the two run offs and Georgia next week. Senator Graham is slated to become chairman of the Senate Budget Committee in years past Senate Budget Committee is a committee that necessarily doesn't do a whole lot, But I think Senator Graham has indicated that he's going to use that perch to focus on that deficit moving forward and I think you're going to start seeing that shift about. We need to start paying attention now that we've essentially gotten through the economic hardship of the pandemic. Although there will be a lightening effect. What is the next 5 10 15 years look like from from a debt and deficit structure, and they're gonna have to come to terms with the fact that they were also responsible for some of the spending. But again, politics in this in this form will be forward looking not backward. Interesting, so moving forward as we're talking about moving forward. There is a little race or a couple of races down in Georgia that we may have heard about. For senators. Purdue and Leffler toe hold onto those seats in the special elections. What do you see the insights in terms of the race in Georgia? What that means also for potential majority or minority. For McConnell or or Schumer in the next Congress. Yes, certainly, and I think by and large, I can't imagine there is a single voter that remains in Georgia who hasn't made up their mind a Suarez there supporting, but I think there's a lot of voters that have yet to figure out how to get to the polls Come January, 5th. If you take a look at some early voting, replacing the Democrats really kind of have performed where they were in the general election with getting their base to vote early by mail. Republicans close that gap once in person early voting kicked off and I believe it was December 14th. Uh, now it remains to be seen if Republicans are successful to getting that the remnants of their base out on December. She's in January 5th for the actual person both you've got the president going down there this weekend to hold a rally Adult which is skewered. Take about 100 150 Miles, maybe a little less outside of Georgia. She's right outside of Atlanta Pardon and that's going to be one of those key constituencies. I really needs to turn out for the president job season for Leffler and produce in order to carry the campaign forward, But it's gonna be close. I think you know it's a base turnout election. Both camps have Marie's and it was ordered amount of money. I don't think money's an issue as we saw with some of these races. In November. You had Democratic candidates that were flush with cash that came up extremely short and actually fell on their face. But I think in this case, it turns out to be a race for the ground game and getting their electorate there and Republicans again. I think most Democrats voted to date. Republicans really need that. You know that base to turn out January 5th. It'll be certainly the race to watch on January 5th January 6th and we'll wrap it up with this January 6th. It's going to come down to Mike Pence. I think casting presiding over the Senate to wrap things up as we're going to wrap things up to and go to break. Thanks so much for being here. Couple of year hide realities. Sure. Hey, Frank are worker's comp insurance is.
