"The GOP resistance to former president Donald Trump, is fighting for her congressional career. In Alaska, GOP senator Lisa Murkowski, who voted to convict Trump in the January 6th impeachment trial, is hoping to survive her primary, joining us live now on Skype, political junkie podcast host Ken rudin, who is coordinated political coverage at both ABC News and NPR. And Ken political experts have been sounding the death knell for Liz Cheney's career in Congress, but we're now hearing about Democrats crossing over to help her fend off her primary challenger is this a viable strategy for Liz Cheney. Well, it's probably Michelle, the only strategy she has given the fact that the Republicans in Wyoming, Wyoming with Donald Trump's best state, he got 70% of the vote, Republicans, whereas the media and Democrats around the country see Liz Cheney as a hero. Given what she's doing to protect the democracy and point out what Donald Trump is doing. But back home in Wyoming, Republicans love Donald Trump. So Liz Cheney may have no choice other than to get Democrats to switch the only problem is that there's not many Democrats in Wyoming, so even if they all came to the polls today and voted for Liz Cheney, which of course a lot of Democrats think is kind of shocking, given the fact that they've never liked the Cheney family, all these years is still wouldn't be enough In Alaska, Republican senator Murkowski, as we talked about, is also facing a Trump backed primary challenger, but alaskans are using the ranked choice voting system for the first time this year. How does that work and what might it mean for Murkowski's chances? Well, remember, Lisa Murkowski was defeated for renomination in the 2010 primary because she wasn't conservative enough and wound up winning reelection that year as a writing. If this was just a basic one on one contest with Kelly Chewbacca, who was another Republican who was facing today, Lisa Murkowski would probably lose. But with this ranked choice voting, it looks like that both Murkowski and Chewbacca and two other candidates because it's the top four who go on to November. They will survive today, but I suspect that given the fact that this rank choice voting seems to help more moderate candidates getting rid of the extremes, it probably will help Murkowski in November. But again, we have a long way to go before we find out who wins that race. There's also, of course, Sarah Palin, whose future is on the line in today's special election. She's up for Don young, who was in Congress for 49 years, died in March, Sarah Palin, is among three candidates in today's special election. Again, also a ranked choice voting to see if her if her career, which basically she gave up when she gave up the governorship in 2009, can be renewed. What do you think her chances are Palin's? Well, you know, there are a lot of people who still love her. They love the she tells it as it is, and she's very conservative and, you know, she has her personality, which a lot of people like. But I think a lot of people in Alaska I've talked to a bunch in the last couple of weeks. They do feel that, you know, she gave up on the statement she quit the governorship. She seems to be more interested in talk shows and reality shows. And then right-wing causes more so than campaigning in Alaska. So there's two interesting two people who are running in that special election today. Mary peltola is at Alaska native who's a Democrat. Again, a Democrat has won the House seat in Alaska since 1972. And the other candidate is Nick begich the third who's a Republican, his grandfather, was Nick begich senior who was actually the predecessor to Don young and Congress until he died in a plane crash and 1972. So Sarah Palin does have her supporters, but my guess is, is that because of ranked choice voting, she may wind up finishing third in this election. But again, with the Alaska weird counting, they'll still be counting till August 31st with write ins and things like that. We may not know for a winner until maybe the first week of September. Can we appreciate the analysis? Thanks, Michelle. That is Ken rudin, political junkie podcast host joining us live on Skype. We'll have sports next. It's 8

"Campaign 2022 on WTO, Alaska and Wyoming are holding big primary elections right now. In Alaska, Republican senator Lisa Murkowski faces some political headwinds over her vote to convict Donald Trump in early 2021. Trump has made Murkowski big target he held rally in Alaska earlier this summer where he was really targeting Murkowski. Murkowski just has to make it to the top four tonight where she can get through to the general in November. But Murkowski is known as that swing vote, Republicans have said that she has quote enabled Democrats. But when you look at polls and when polls account for the rank choice vote, system in Alaska, it shows her ahead but only barely on Shabbat and that could be a benefit of the ranked choice voting system, which some Trump critics have blamed Murkowski for pushing to get and still. That CBS reporter Aaron Navarro also in Alaska one time GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is running for the right to fill the rest of the term of the late congressman Don young. Meantime in Wyoming, GOP congresswoman Liz Cheney could get unseated as backlash for her role as vice chair of the House committee investigating the capitol riot. Many voters there are upset with her blistering criticism of former president Trump, but some Democrats are actually switching parties to vote in the Republican race, Washington Post politics reporter amber Phillips tells us that will not be enough to make a difference for Cheney. My colleague Paul king talked to strategists in the Satan said she'd need 40,000 Democrats, most likely to switch over. And we just haven't seen those numbers in registration. That would be a huge grand swallow democratic support for this really, really conservative. Let's not forget Republican member Congress. She was being talked about as maybe the next Republican House speaker. And now it's likely she will lose her job in Congress. Last week, a university of Wyoming polls showed Cheney trailing her challenger Harriet hagerman by a staggering 29 point margin.

Misses Biden is said to be experiencing mild symptoms and president Joe Biden continues testing negative. Campaign 2022, Wyoming Republican congresswoman Liz Cheney is fighting an uphill battle to hold on to her seat, polls for today's primary show her woefully behind opponent Harriet hagerman, who has the backing of former president Trump. In Alaska, a sometimes critic of the former president is also on the ballot. But senator Lisa Murkowski has a better chance to survive her race because of a new nonpartisan primary system.

"Campaign 2022 continues on WTO this early morning for more now. Let's turn to political junkie. Podcast host, Ken Rodin this morning, who has coordinated political coverage actually at ABC News and NPR on Chinese loss this week. Well, I've talked to a bunch of people who know her pretty well, Alan Simpson, the former senator, was a guest on my podcast this week. And he says she's not going away. There are talks about her running for president in 2024 and as well as that sounds. I mean, nobody thinks she can get the Republican nomination, but she's very determined to make sure that Donald Trump does not return to The White House. Everything she's done on the January 6th committee is part of that effort to keep him from returning to politics and perhaps a presidential run would be part of that process. We have senator Lisa Murkowski, also going up against a Trump endorsed challenger, but her faith could be different, right? That's true because there's something called the rank choice voting in Alaska where there are 19 candidates running for the Senate all candidates Democrats and Republican all parties are on the same ballot. And then the four top four candidates advance to the November election. It's very likely almost assuredly that Lisa Murkowski will be one of those four candidates. Kelly Chewbacca, who's a Republican whom Donald Trump has endorsed is also likely to move on to November. But then we have the ranked choice voting. So just like in the special election that's going on with Sarah Palin and the Sarah Palin's political future may be on the line, but that we may not know, we still may not have an answer to that election until August, but most likely Lisa Murkowski's fate win or lose won't be determined until November. What interests you most about Liz Cheney? Well, you know, it's amazing. I mean, not that long ago, you think of Liz Cheney as, you know, die in the trumper. She voted with him 90% of the vote. I don't know, any Democrat in the world who liked her, let alone with vote for her. And the fact that one, you know, what she saw what happened on January 6th, she's one of the ten Republicans in the House to vote to impeach, to impeach the president, and the president, of course, will never accept that kind of criticism without lashing out and going on as revenge tour. But the fact that Liz Cheney has suddenly she's still a conservative. She's still a Republican. She's still believes in very strong conservative principles. Yet she doesn't believe that Donald Trump deserves another term in The White House given what he's done, you know, regarding his efforts to upend democracy. So the thought of Liz Cheney being the hero of the media

"To prepare your case from eyeball witnesses who saw what they testified. Deposition under oath Not one witness was presented in the house. Not one witness was presented in the Senate. The president denied the right to cross examination because there were no witnesses. The president deny the right of representation at all in the house before the indictment was issued, which is contrary to what's happening every other impeachment case. This was a sham from beginning. Particularly upsetting to me are the Republican senators who voted to convict President Trump, including Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina. Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Senator Ben says of Nebraska Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania Senator Susan Collins of Maine.

I was shocked from Senator Bill Cassidy did what he did with a wink. Toward Senator Ben Sasse. Shocked that Cassidy could could vote to say these entire proceedings were unconstitutional because they're directed at a private citizen. United States Senate in the country stopped to make sure that a private citizen could not run for a federal office. I thought that's our right to decide whether or not Vote for against someone. But in Senator Bill Cassidy's task he voted In favor of declaring it to be unconstitutional and illegal. And having determined that it's unconstitutional and illegal. Cassidy and Bird then flipped and said, even though what I'm doing is illegal. We're going to do it anyway. Are you kidding me? I don't get it. I don't understand it. Because the Democrats want now through indirect means to go after the voters who 74 million of us who voted for the Donald and also go after the House of Representatives members and the senators who did not vote through TOC keep him from running for another political office and that voter suppression I thought the Democrats cared about voter suppression.

It actually has a lot to do with investors paying up for protection against rising prices, as opposed to actually seeing an increase coming and we did have some pretty weak inflation or consumer price data in the United States. It does raise the question for all of our guests today. Whether not they agree that this is just hedging here or there, not some major signal being sent that inflation is coming.

And that's Vice President Kamala Harris. Democrats 12 weeks ago.

Yeah, Those are three very big tasks. What are Republicans saying about the next steps? We saw Republican leaders extending all of branch today trying to bridge some of this dramatic divide the trump years brought with Democrats. For example, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged this transfer of power in his hopes to work with Biden.

In his inauguration speech, lifting these bipartisan hopes I talked to Alaska senators Lisa Murkowski, Let's take a listen. You can still disagree from a policy perspective and you can do so in ways that are still respectful and allow you to continue to work towards other goals.

That will be a real test for whether members can talk into gum at the same time, as they like to say. Democrats are betting they can. One proposal that's being entertained is whether they can split their days between an impeachment trial and confirming these nominees.

House prepares to impeach Trump for inciting the U.S. Capitol riot

House prepares to impeach Trump for inciting the U.S. Capitol riot

"Democrats are moving forward with the plan to impeach President Trump for a second time. President has just nine days left in office, and Democrats say this week they plan to file an impeachment resolution. This follows Trump's incitement of his supporters last Wednesday, hundreds of whom descended on the U. S Capitol. The violent scene left five people dead, including a Capitol police officer and NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell is here with us this morning with the latest take healthy. Good morning. How will this impeachment proceeding work? Well, it will start today when Democrats plan to bring up a resolution that would call on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th amendment. Democrats will try to pass that unanimously, but Republicans could and probably will block it with just one objection. After that, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is basically giving Pence 24 hours. I kind of ultimatum to decide if he's going to invoke the 25th amendment. If he doesn't she plans to bring the process you know to Ah, hold of bring together the process to hold a vote on impeachment. Which could happen as early as Wednesday. Now on the question of impeachment, it's currently just one article referring to incitement to insurrection. It's based on Trump's address to the crowd before the riots began, and his attempts to overturn the election in 2020 more than 200. Democrats have signed on, and I'm told that they expect some Republicans will support it, too. You know, Democrats are pretty unified and saying what happened? The capital cannot be swept under the rug. Is that Trump can't be allowed to simply leave office without any consequences, And they want to make sure that the Senate has the opportunity to vote to convict so that it can bar trump from holding future federal office. Okay, Kelsey. This actually brings me to the question of Republicans. We heard a few of them say over the last few days, they want Trump out of office. How widespread? Is that feeling within the GOP, you know, some of that is kind of hard to gauge because most of them have been quiet. We know that Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski was the first to say that Trump should resign, but she's been joined by retiring Senator Pat Toomey. He was asked about this yesterday on CNN. I think at this point with just a few days left, it's the best half forward. Now there are a few others that agree. But some others, like Missouri Senator Roy Blunt, who's part of Republican leadership, says he basically wants Trump to be quiet for 10 days and just leave. You know, House Republican leaders have also mostly been silent, except for Liz Cheney, who has often broken with the rest of House Republican leadership when it comes to Trump Okay. This process the house wants to do is is really quick. But there's still the Senate, right? And you know, that is really the wild card here because Republicans will control the Senate until the Georgia elections are certified. And then the Senate has to meet and do some required organizing work. So that means that Mitch McConnell would control the timing and the Senate is out of session. So what would need to happen is they would have to bring them back into session. They would start a trial basically around Inauguration Day. Once an impeachment trial is triggered in the Senate, it stops everything else from happening. It forces senators to come to the Senate floor stick down six days a week until the trial concludes, and that could take weeks. House Minority Whip Jim Clyburn floated a proposal that he says could solve it. Here He is yesterday on CNN President Look Bad 100 days he needs to get his agenda off and running. Maybe we'll send you the articles. Sometimes after that, Ah, 100 Days is a really long time And that could be well after Trump leaves office And you know, Democrats want to proceed for all the reasons I've mentioned before, but this creates a really complicating political moment for Biden as he tries to, you know, move forward and move the country ahead. And this is all happening. I 30 seconds with you as we prepare for Joe Biden's inauguration. What are the concerns about safety? Yeah, they're still concerns the capitals a little bit like a fortress right now, with fences and National Guard troops and there. There's a process of a review right now. But there are serious concerns about whether or not the capital but will be fully safe for the bite. Administration were told that there are really efforts right now trying to Trying to beef up security and take every precaution. Possible.

"And GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell are making a push to nominate and confirm Ruth Bader Ginsburg, replacement at the Supreme Court before the November election. Trump telling a crowd in Dayton, Ohio. His plan is to nominate a woman. That is the only thing I'll say for the women. It will be a woman. Trump says his announcement will be made Friday or Saturday. Ginsberg's burial is next week at Arlington National Cemetery. Source says the conversations in the White House and McConnell's office have centered on two finalists Amy Cockney Barret, who is at the White House on Monday, and Barbara Lagoa. Garrett has long been a favorite of conservatives and was a strong contender for the seat that eventually went in 2018 to Brett Kavanaugh. Trump said today that he had five finalists probably 40 women and had started speaking to them over the past two days. McConnell insistence. Actions now are not counter to what he did in 2016 when he held up President Obama's nomination of merit Garland to take the seat left vacant by the death of Antonin Scalia. Even though the election was two thirds of a year away, McConnell said no appointment should be made during an election year. Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins says she's holding him to what he said then consistently and Being president. Staff. Four Republicans would be needed to block the president's speedy effort. Utah's Mitt Romney would only tell reporters before I have any kind of going with my colleagues, which I'll be doing tomorrow. And if I have something at that point, you know, But it is.

Blunt says there's "plenty of time" to confirm Ginsburg's replacement

"There's a large number of Republican senators who said in 2016, There should not be a vote on a Supreme Court nominee in an election year that was the principal. They laid down explicitly in order to block President Obama. How many of them are changing their minds? Well, all of them, but I would say also in the course of this time, McConnell and Republicans have always made the argument that what the standard was in 2016 is because the Republicans controlled the Senate and Democrats controlled the White House and they say when the same party controls both That's standard doesn't apply. This is, of course, a completely arbitrary standard. This is not about the rules of the Senate, but it is happening within the confines of the Senate. The mature sounds like one of those sounds like one of those obscure baseball statistics like saying this is the 3rd 3rd baseman since 1972 to bat to 70 left handed. I mean, it's such a narrow standard that they claim to off Appel. But I do have to stop a note. That wasn't what McConnell statement Wass. At the moment the vacancy occurred, he said, The people should decide that was the principal. He laid out. But please proceed. That is true. And this is what I'm saying. It's an arbitrary standard that they've set. But it's within their power of the majority and Senator Roy Blunt Mazari. He's a member of the leadership team. He told CBS's face the Nation yesterday. He believes they could do it before the election should take us long as it needs to take. But no longer There is plenty of time to get this done, and Republicans are lining up behind McConnell. Just two senators, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine have said they oppose going forward before the election. You need to be two more senators to say the same thing to stop the process. It's also going to matter who the nominee is and how fast they could move. But I'd note that those two federal judges that Mar just mentioned have already been vetted, and they have already been supported by people like Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski. And it is the Senate's power under the Constitution as you point out, so what options if any, to Democrats have very few. They have a handful of minor delaying tactics, Days, not weeks here, but Chuck Schumer's the top Democrat in the Senate, he's publicly warning Republicans that there will be retribution if the party takes control of the Senate in this November elections, which is very possible. Progressives and activists are calling for Democrats to do literally everything possible to try to slow this down until after the election. This is Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, speaking yesterday in New York. We all need to be more courageous. And we all must must act in unprecedented ways to make sure that that our rights are stabilized. And to Mitch McConnell, we need to tell him That he is playing with fire. There's

"Main conditions in the midst of a pandemic. Its only a handful of lawsuits have been filed against businesses are practice suits and related to the Cova 19, Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin. Fine, conscientious business. People in Illinois and across America are prepared to make their business place safe for the people who work there in the marketplace. What they need is a rational, clear statement of public health experts as to what they must do. I've heard this over and over again and they said to me, Senator give me the standards on social distancing and labeling and sanitizers unmasked and we will live up to them. We have never guarantee that someone will File a frivolous lawsuit. But we should be able to say to people if you will follow the public health experts with a really standard of care than your motion. Is Mrs going to prevail in that lawsuit? Little bit the end of it. But Senator McConnell thinks there's a better way to really absolved them from meeting any standard when it comes to public health. In fact, what he proposes today basically says, if you comply with any local ordinance, good enough, enough, said. It doesn't have to be any standard of public health. It is credible. That doesn't keep America safe when it's going to do is encourage the bad actors to do little or nothing. If we're going to deal with this pandemic, everyone has to be serious about it from wearing these masks to social distancing to putting up with what it has become a tedious responsibility of staying away from friends and family when you want to be with him to get this behind us, and when it comes to the business and marketplace the same thing. Applies. They're gonna have to pitch in if they want to re open, and I wish they could today or tomorrow, But if they want to re open, they have to pitch in with a good faith effort to meet a public health standard, and I'll stand by them and everyone else will, too. Senator McConnell's approach absolves them from responsibility in his lab on the immunity and an invitation for bad actors to do little or nothing in protecting innocent people, including their own employees. This president, I'm going to yield the floor at this point and say that we could do better. What Senator McConnell is offering. The Senate today weaken gether on a bipartisan basis and reach a compromise if he will attend the negotiations for President Center from Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, Republican I've listened to the minority whip here, and I would say that I agree with him this this bill that we will have an opportunity to vote on later this afternoon..

"So the basis of both parties are behind the leaders, and we didn't hear anything new last night. But it's as if both the president and Democrats have been saying the same things to each other for three weeks, and we haven't made any progress. The Republicans we see falling away from the president are more. Moderate Republicans who are up for re election in twenty twenty in worried that this is going to have a political cost. So we saw Colorado Senator Cory Gardner who into. Interestingly a ran the national Republican senatorial committee this last election cycle and saw moderate Republicans in suburban areas lose. I think he's worried that this is something that could affect him. Susan Collins of Maine, you know, who's always a moderate voice in the party. So I think the White House worried those people could start to split off and the president could lose support from his party. But again basis the basis of both parties very firmly behind their leaders. And I think that's partly why we have seen very little progress thus far. Well, so let's listen to another Republican than here. This is Alaska Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski, she told reporters last night that she thinks congress should open the government or we open government agencies booze before resolving the fight over the border wall. The operations of the department of the interior. National Park Service or the operations of the IRS and whether or not tax refunds go out. Don't have anything to do with border security. So let's by for Kate these issues, let's set them aside. Let's allow for the operations these governmental functions in these six other departments allow for them to continue. So that's Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski, saying set aside, the border wall because it doesn't really have anything to do with the operations of government agencies like the IRS on the other hand, South Carolina. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham had a completely different message for his Republican colleagues on an interview with Fox News last night. This is the best chance we'll ever have the hill. President Trump gets border wall funding still bear funding and at the same time fix the loopholes. The all away we lose this to give in if we'll stand firm put deals on the table that makes sense we will win. This on behalf of the American people. But if we undercut the president best the end of his presidency and end of our party, and we deserve to be punished. If we give in now that South Carolina, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, Jillian zealous, or that last part of what Graham said that if if Republicans undercut the president is the end of the presidency and the end of the party does Graham have a point. I mean for a while now, many many folks that I've talked to like you have said the GOP has become the party of Trump is Graham, right? Oh, absolutely. I think Graham is being very blunt, and very honest, and he has been one of the most partisan figures in the last few years doing almost anything the president needs and and the president support. Although people love to talk about the base really is the Republican party more broadly, and what the president has depended on is that partisanship. It's the fact Republicans will tolerate President Trump over a democrat. And that means they've protected him on many fronts. Whether you're talking about the investigation or whether you're talking about his flexing executive and presidential power. If Republicans started to peel away that would be a big problem because all of a sudden in the Senate will look a lot more threatening to the White House. Whereas right now, it's still pretty much a bash Jin of safety the second part. I think is more suspect with this destroy the Republican party. There's a counter argument, and that's what you're hearing from Murkowski a little bit that they're publicans actually need to save themselves. And it's at some point the question is do they ever see the way to do that is actually two separate from a president who is undertaking some destructive measures. Well, let's get a couple of calls in here while I can and is calling from bar harbor, Maine and you're on the air. Thank you, very, I retired federal employees..
