Trump's Senate impeachment trial moves to opening arguments
"Trump committed a massive crime against our Constitution and our people and the worst violation of the presidential oath of office in the history of the United States of America. That is lead impeachment manager Jamie Raskin of Maryland today. He and his fellow House members presented opening arguments in Day two of former President Trump's impeachment trial in the U. S. Senate. Call the former president on insider in chief who reveled in the chaos of his supporters of the capital on January 6th joining us now to talk about the day or NPR congressional reporter Claudia Chrysalis and NPR's senior political editor and correspondent. Domenico Montanaro. Could have you both. Here. Thanks. Thanks. Claudia, you were actually in the Senate chamber today, where the 100 senators as jury members sit silently listening to the House. Impeachment managers make their case describe the mood for us. It was clear much of the time that I was in the chamber that the members were very engaged. For example, they were watching lead manager Jamie Raskin, in his presentation very intently reminded me of the chamber yesterday when Raskin was giving his emotional remarks. About the day he and his family experienced here. During the insurrection. I was seated on the Republican side of the chamber. Republicans were intently watching him and the other managers and that includes those who say they won't be voting to convict Trump like Mike Rounds of South Dakota, Republican member of the Senate. Also, Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell was also watching. Very closely even watch some of these videos of the president's past statements on a television screen on the chamber floor. Many members were taking notes, and this includes those who have voted for the constitutionality of the trial, among them, Ben Sasse of Nebraska had a pile of no cards on his desk. Domenico. The Democrats were making the arguments today. I know you've been watching since the beginning of these proceedings yesterday what stood out to you compared to yesterday's testimony. Well, only later in the day here, have we gotten some of the personal passion and emotion that we had yesterday about the violence on January? 6th? Mostly today, Democrats had been methodically mounting, pretty dispassionate case to show Trump is the reason for why all of this happened. They claim that it's not just isolated to January 6th and tick through numerous things for months and months. That this was months and months in the making that Trump laid the groundwork before the election and drove it home after after that election and was aware of what was being planned. Um, it kind of really makes me wonder how and what the trump lawyers they're going to say in rebuttal, aside from saying that Democrats are being selective and use the word on that they didn't say that he used the word peaceful. In his speech on January 6th. Claudia tell us more about how the Democrats are actually building their case here. Yes, they're focused on showing the timeline of how Trump built a crowd of people who distrusted the election and believed they were following his orders. Jonah Goose, one of the managers of he's, a House member of Colorado. He also talked about this. Let's take a listen. Senators is clearly was not just one speech. Didn't just happen. It was part of a carefully planned months long effort. With very specific instruction. Show up on January 6th. Get your people to fight the certification. So from manager to manager they're building this case each piece building on the next the beginning, middle and end and today mark the beginning of that story. He made a point of connecting directly to their share terror that day, and this was especially apparent is, Domenico noted in the late afternoon when managers have shared dramatic sounds. And footage video footage from the day of the insurrection that the public has not seen before. This was sounds from police scanners of officers pleading for assistance. Pleading for their lives. It's seen as they were being assaulted by the mob. There's video footage from Capitol security cameras showing the mob breaking into the capital and another stunning moment where we see Senator Mitt Romney of Utah, walking outside of the chamber, running into an officer being told they need to clear out quickly and he is running. Behind this officer to escape the mob. Wow well yesterday, Trump's lawyers dismissed the House managers arguments, calling Democrats accusing Democrats of trying to cancel the former president by stifling his freedom of speech. Medical. What did the impeachment managers say about that claim right? Trump's lawyers yesterday said his speech was protected by the First Amendment. But Jamie Raskin, the lead impeachment manager, who we heard from earlier You know, he's a constitutional law professor, And he argued that the quote factual premise and the legal underpinnings of that claim are all wrong, He said. Incitement to violence is not protected speech, and here's how he put it with a familiar phrase. It's more like a case where the town fire chief Who's paid to put out fires sends a mob not to yell fire in a crowded theater, but to actually set the theater on fire. And who then, when the fire alarms go off in the calls, start flooding into the fire department asking for help does nothing but sit back, encourage the mob to continue its rampage and watch the fire spread on TV. Clea and delight. You know,
Democrats to Unveil Up to $3,600 Child Tax Credit as Part of Stimulus Bill
"House committees are now hammering out the details of the nearly $2 Trillion Coburn relief package. Put forward by President Biden. Children are at the center of one of these pieces of the package. And with more on that I'm joined by ABC s Elizabeth Scholesy in Washington. Elizabeth Great to have you with us. As usual. This is expected to be direct cash payments to American families with kids. Hey, yeah, That's right. So great to be with you. This is a new proposals that we put forward today by Democrats in the House Ways and Means Committee, essentially calling for an expansion of the child tax credit, So the breaks out is essentially Asking for $3600 per child under the age of six and $3000 per child between the ages of six and 17 and the Democrats say this is holding true to Biden's promise to expand this chap this child tax credit. And to help alleviate poverty. No, there is research showing that this would help cut child poverty and half That's according to a Columbia University study, and this is part of a broader effort as we know of that nearly $2 trillion covert relief package, but certainly a Democratic priority here that have gotten some Republicans support. We saw similar opportunities will put forward by Senator Mitt Romney last week. So this is an interesting way to get more cash to families, especially lower income families and CBS interview yesterday, the president indicated he He doesn't really want to come off that 1.9 trillion mark, but is willing to negotiate with regard to income eligibility. That's exactly right. Joe Biden is holding true to the demand for $1400 stimulus checks. He says he will not go up go below that dollar amount, but he is willing to negotiate on who gets those checks. Currently, the proposal says, If you get more if you earn more than $75,000, you would start phasing out and you would not qualify their own individual That would be $150,000 per couple. So I didn't sound out open to maybe having that income threshold deal little bit lower. Notably those. Some Democrats are pushing back on that idea. We did hear from Senator Bernie Sanders and said anyone who got a stimulus check under President Trump. Should also get a check under President

And, of course, ah, huge driving issue potentially in the upcoming election, the affordable Care act. I mean, I want to go there, Kevin. I think there's a gate ways to go here this morning, but this is so important right after the election. They address the affordable care act, so called obamacare is well, how will that play out? Given the craziness of the selection? We may not other results when we begin to look at this. I'll never forget back on the campaign trail in 2016. When the trip drip drip of Comey, documents and letters surrounding Hillary Clinton were coming forth and being public and driving the conversation on cable news. Something that never really got talked about was just how aggressively and how hard then candidate Donald Trump and the Republican surrogates and the Republican machine We're hitting Obama care. We're hating the affordable care act. And when you look at the exit polls that really resonated with many independent and swing voters now Flash forward four years later, when millions of Americans are hurting in the middle class is a result of the pandemic collapse in the economy and whether or not that is going to be a significant driver in the polls.

This is really almost game set almost match for Senate Republicans in terms of getting another Supreme Court justice across the finish line. And it's going to have severe implications in battleground states, potentially, but whether it has the reverse effect. I don't know. I think it's a little bit too early to tell leader McConnell's up against a man McGrath, though, by 15% points in Kentucky, according to a morning consul poll that came out just the other day, Kevin, we're focusing more than perhaps he otherwise would on the Supreme Court vacancy in my heart because that is where the focus is. In Washington and not on fiscal support, not in some of the other key issues that people have been looking for. And yet yesterday, the House did manage to pass a stopgap funding bill to avoid a shutdown at the outer the month. Can we take any positive signs from this? Or was this just basically the bare minimum that Washington can get done in its current dysfunctional state? The seven optimistic could always be worse, right? I mean, they could have shut down the government, so I think, Look, I think when you look at it from that regard, you look at the volatilities and how markets have always negatively reacted to there being a government shutdown and the volatility that could have come out from that regard. And look, I mean, they kicked the can down the road, but the government is not shut down. Just a few weeks or a month and a half until until the election. It gives all politicians the opportunity to go back to their districts in the next couple of weeks and say, Well, the government's open so yesterday, John asked you about the change in the polls, how steady they've been with former vice President Biden as well as President Trump and who's in the front running seat.

I in my opinion, you can get as hard as you wanna get pushing back on China.

It's hard not to recognize.

He said he would I think it was on the today show. He said he would be happy to release returns. So we should do that. But I also tell you I did the Democrats are just playing along his handbook which is going after his tax returns to a legislative action is Barack that's not going to happen.
