Democrats control Senate after three new senators are sworn in

So the Senate finalized their transfer of power from a Republican led chambers has been the case since 2015 to 1 that is divided 50 50 and led by one Democrat as the tiebreaker. And that's Vice President Kamala Harris. Democrats 12 weeks ago. But finally today, these two new senators from Georgia, Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff's who shifted control of the chamber were sworn in and this is ahead of some very heavy lifts ahead. The chambers. New Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in his floor in his former marks, said quote I need to catch my breath so much is happening. But he's already highlighted three big tasks ahead a Senate impeachment trial for former President Donald Trump confirming Biden's Cabinet nominees and taking up a $1.9 trillion biting proposal for new coronavirus coronavirus relief aid. 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. And this is the theme I heard from other Republicans today, they thought bite, instruct the right tone. 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. I also caught up with GOP Senator Susan Collins of Maine, who sounded a similar note. She said Biden struck those right themes of unity and a call for parties to stop viewing one another as adversaries, and she stands ready to advance their common goals. And West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin told Capitol Hill reporters today that a bipartisan group that includes workhouse game Collins would be meeting with Biden administration in the coming days. So again, this bipartisan theme was much of what I heard today from both sides. So how are they plan to tackle impeachment, massive legislation and confirming Biden's cabinet all at once? 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. But first they need to reach a power sharing agreement with Republicans. Then they hope to tackle these big ticket items at warp speed in the coming days.

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.

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.

In Washington DC, White House adds fencing around perimeter

"The trump administration is building. What increasingly looks like a fortress? The White House are early this morning. Crews began extending metal fencing a steel wall. If you will from Pennsylvania, avenue virtually all the way down to Constitution Avenue across the street from the National Mall that is on, and there's some of that fencing right right there that is on top of the fencing. That's already surrounding the White House in addition to that. There remains a militarized police presence in Lafayette. Park around the White House giving this area. The Look of something out of an authoritarian country not the people's House as you describe it in on top of all of that White House officials say quote. All options are on the table for dealing with these protesters in the meantime Attorney General William. Bar is defending the use of force to clear out Lafayette's. Where before the President Church photo op on Monday authorities had hoped to establish a secure perimeter earlier in the day, supporting the Attorney General, but ran out of time. Here's more of what he had to say. It was our hope to be able to do that. relatively quickly before Many demonstrators appeared that day. Unfortunately because of the difficulty in getting appropriate forces units, hinder place. by the time they were able to. Move or perimeter up to ice returned a number. A large number of protesters had assembled I did not know that. That he was going to do that until later in the day after our plans were well underway to to move the perimeter, so there was no correlation between our our tactical plan of moving the perimeter out by one block and the president's going over to the church. The president asked members of his cabinet to go over there with them. And that claim from the attorney general now as for that stinging statement from former Defense Secretary James Mattis accusing the president of dividing instead of uniting the US former White House chief of staff. John Kelly is defending the retired general, telling The Washington, post earlier today that Mattis is quote, honorable man. He also disputed the president's claim that Mr Trump fired mattis Kelly says mattis resigned the president. Quote has clearly forgotten how it actually happened or is confused quote in response to that statement for US Alaska Republican Senator Lisa. Murkowski told reporters earlier today. She agrees with former defense secretary and added. She is struggling with whether she will support the president. Come this

"We find this balance and that balance it is is is so important. I'm sorry I keeping her one more thing or my uncle in law was a former senator from Arkansas and he had on his desk facing out to assign when people came in his office. which is Arkansas comes first? So in addition to describing how you're going to on navigate these two four cents at Alaska. Can you talk about how you balance that against whatever the national answers are so I should and get twenty minutes answer but I should get that sign for my desk to although I think people know that I feel pretty strongly about that we are a state where seven hundred twenty thousand people. When we came into the union just shy of sixty years ago it was made very clear? Look you're never gonNA have enough people to support yourself from a permit from a tax base perspective it's your resources that will sustain you and that is is the story that was the story at statehood. That's is a story that continues today. Believe it or not. We're a state where eighty five percent of our state's budget comes from one place lace eighty. Five percent of our state's budget comes from oil so when the price of oil is down when production is down what happens to our state in terms of of the Treasury had we pay for public safety roads and and the like so if we want to be that state that has resources to help whether it is moving villages whether it is getting our state off. Aw of off of diesel I think about that you think about Alaska and you think okay what I know about it is you got you got oil up on the north but you. You've you've got this sixty five billion dollars in the bank as part of your permanent fund so it must be a pretty nice place and oh by the way I also heard that you give everybody an annual dividend from that. That's all true but what we what we what we don't have been one is is is communities that are connected by grid so so we literally don't have a road grid. We've got a highway that goes from from seward to fairbanks and then down and we don't have electric grids so to speak. We've got one rail belt line and after that everybody is on their own. And think about what that means when everybody's on your own in southeast where it's a rainforest you've got a hydro which is your energy but you're limited within your ability to provide for transmission line so you've got all these island did Energy Reggie Systems and the rest of the state you just are not connected so no road no electric let me give you a little factoid. Here over eighty percent of the communities in the state of Alaska are not connected by a road. Think what that means. How do you get stuff off? How do you get your food? How do you get your building materials? How do you move around? It's crazy expensive and then you put on that that the fact that in so many of these communities they continue to be powered by diesel generation. And so you say oh well you get your diesel missile from your the North Slope. Well we don't we send that down a pipeline. We send that down south to be refined them they send it back to us and then we have to put it on a barge or an airplane to get to us so you get out to the village on the Yukon River and you're paying eight nine ten dollars a gallon to keep warm arm in a cold place so what we're trying to do. Necessity is the mother of invention and we got a lot of mothers inventing extraordinary do things because we have to because we are so high cost in a cold place where you need to keep warm. And so we're pioneering with with micro grids we are. We're doing more in Alaska because we have to and we're doing it with a little bit of Ingenuity Luethi. Maybe a couple of wind turbines bring in some solar panels get a little river turban gun energy storage by literally literally Chevy Volt batteries. That are stacked up on Costco Racks. But we've got. We've got imagination that is going on. That is being viewed you not only by the experts in our national labs around the country but people around the world that are looking to Alaska because for us. We're going to have to figure out how we reduce our emissions kind of on our own because it's not like we can we can. We can deal with it through the utilities because it's really that's limited in terms of its scope job so we're doing a lot of pioneering that people don't know about we're okay with that we'll share with you when when when you're ready but but you ask about about the balance and how we balance Alaska's interest with the national interest. I I get it I take it back to in order for us to be able to make this transition to to clean energy. We gotta have. We have to have the resources to be able to fund it. Because we know we're not going to be getting that much from from the federal government to assist because again we're small scale where small we're small in the total scheme of things. So how we balance that continues to be a challenge Allen Jr but how we push those who are accessing these these fossil resources to do it in a manner that is not not only more clean but really reducing that overall environmental footprint. We've got we've got to push to make sure the word that is a significant part of the equation as well terrific now. I you know this better than I do. But of course carbon bracing does create all kinds of new revenues. That can help grease the wheels. But that's one piece of the puzzle energy. Okay now. My thirteen year old daughter would be very very upset. If I didn't ask the following question she is. I think I think it's starting to melt away slowly but still it is true that she's one hundred percent convinced That boys certainly myself certainly son or an inferior species and twenty five women in the US Senate not not now two hundred fifty right now in fifty. So how'd Senate be different if there were more women and what should men learn from women and well. It's totally you're asking this towards the end because we could have taken up the whole conversation. I I am a firm believer that women by their very nature. Bring a level of collaboration that I think is important to any process says and I am a big advocate to try to encourage more women in all levels of of a public policy and we. We're we're kind of high fiving ourselves that we've gotten to two twenty five. When I came? We were at eleven so we have made some some progress. But I find it just astonishing that when we look to other countries in terms of their parents and their structure. We're telling them you you need to make sure that you've got basically a fifty fifty split in in in your form of government with women to men and yet we have have been just not looking at ourselves in terms of how women are are engaged aged in the policy. So I I will share with you that the women do things not in a monolithic. Nick manner it's not like okay because we're women a women we all vote the same way on this. It's crazy but what we do try to do that. I think is healthy. Is it tried to build those personal relationships so about every six weeks the women are the Senate get together. Somebody agrees to host Sometimes it'll be at the member's house there in DC or if they don't have a very very big house enough for fifteen or twenty of says you know we will do it in a in. Somebody's office or or in a restaurant and we gathered together. And there's three rules. No staff off notes no leaks. We're just there to share one another's company and sometimes it's just having a glass of wine and complaining whining about you. Know who's running the show and I gosh. I can't believe they're doing this. And other times we talk about our kids. Our family relationships. Some stresses of the job and other times we talk about some very significant issues of the day and what we might be able to do to help influence that outcome. But what what we try to do is remind one another that we're in positions Of Great.

"Have led to a three hundred seventy five billion dollar us trade deficit something he's trying to balance gordon thank you mike the additional tariffs follow last week's start of levies on thirty four billion dollars of chinese exports of machinery components and electronics also scheduled are tariffs on sixteen billion dollars of chinese electronics and other components a day after being nominated to the supreme court judge brett cavanaugh spent yesterday wooing senators who will vote on his confirmation he will conduct more meetings today meanwhile a handful of moderate senators will likely determine the fate of president trump's knicks supreme court nominee and they're already in the hot seat as advocacy groups on the right and left prepare for a pitched confirmation battle mr trump named judge cabinet ought to replace retiring justice anthony kennedy monday evening and the confirmation vote will be close because republicans hold a narrow fifty one to forty nine margin in the senate more on the senators who will determine the outcome from elisa collins congressional reporter at usa today elisa set this up republicans but i think you could argue the most pressure because the rest of the party is going to eat the pudding cab naba collins meaning senator lisa murkowski of alaska therefore abortion rights and they have broken with their party on votes related to they were two of the three deciding votes that stopped the obamacare repeal early trump's trump so those are the two that the republicans really basically there are they need fifty republicans and they can vice president pence as a tiebreaker is that fifty one out there are fifty one republican senator john mccain has been out for months he said kids bring cancer and so they need mcaliskey collins to be onboard to have a party line vote abortion rights is this the key factor for say senators collins and murkowski keith actor or at least they will say is not the key factor but it it factor for the last in trying to makovsky collins to get on their side basically their argument is you voted with us in the past you stopped obamacare repeal which would have defended planned parenthood and don't elect don't nominate a supreme court justice who could roll back fat okay but they voted for neal gorsuch correct they voted for most so that sort of complicates things here have marked the pick is not on the record saying anything super controversial about roe v wade army can definitely look at it passed conservative but there is sort of the argument that they could look at him and his record and being on the bench being like by not just the far right but sort of republicans in general they might vote for him we're speaking with elisa collins congressional reporter at usa today she's profiled the six senators that could make or break brett kavanagh's nomination to the supreme court so what about a democratic senators those ones in red states correct correct states trump wow that's a lot of democrats up this year in states trump won but there's a handful of states trump won by double digits actually very high senator joe manchin of west virginia trump went for west virginia back forty two points so these guys are facing long odds and they have to get that trump base the republican voter to dot com again some of those voters really care about the supreme court so we're watching four of those this sort of our senator senator joe donnelly of indiana heidi heitkamp of north dakota senator manchin up west virginia four less likely to sit but that senator doug jones of alabama trump won by quite a lot what are the highest odds for any of these senators is it most likely in the end that say collins and murkowski who are republicans would vote yes or would republicans rightly i guess expect they might be able to pick off one or two democrats the republicans i think rightly thinks that they can pick up one or but here's the main thing is that they need collins and markowski or at least one of them but basically so for having up because no democrat wants to be that fiftieth because the left will could really could have their own base problem at election time so they need the democratic base to turn out in the open so they might be more willing to be fifty one are certainly fifty two or fifty three but if they're forty no democrat wants fifty race elisa elisa collins congressional reporter at usa today fifteen.
