"Fbk the effort to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour we'll have to wait. It will not be part of the nearly $2 Trillion pandemic relief plan now in the hands of the Senate since a Senate official rule that the House $15 minimum wage could not be in the Senate reconciliation COVERT bill. Senate Democrats polled it for now. I think we will do the minimum wage and there are fundamental decency and fairness.

Romney: Plan to challenge election 'egregious ploy' that 'dangerously threatens' country

"A growing number of Republican lawmakers back in President Trump's repeated efforts to overturn the 2020 election results today, Senator Ted Cruz announced the coalition of 11 senators and Senators elect who will vote against Democratic electors from states where the president has alleged widespread voter fraud. Those lawmakers joined Missouri Senator Josh Holly, who was the first to announce his intentions to object to the state tallies during the upcoming joint session of Congress. In their statement announcing their intentions today, those 11 lawmakers said in part quote Congress should immediately appoint an electoral commission to conduct an emergency 10 Day audit of the election results in the disputed states. Senators went on to say they quote intend to vote to reject the electors from disputed states. Until that emergency 10 Day audit is completed. The announcement being met with strong pushback from Democrats, including Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal, who tweeted quote this pathetic on the pathetic, opportunistic stunt is an attack on our democracy. It is un American and unconscionable. Votes have been counted, recounted, Certified and all challenges, totally discredited time to govern and get things done. Even some Republicans expressing their disapproval with those 11 senators. Utah Senator Mitt Romney, releasing a statement that read, in part, quote the egregious ploy to reject electors, man hands the political ambitions of some but dangerously threatens our Democratic Republic. The congressional power to reject electors is reserved for the most extreme and unusual circumstances. These are far from it. President Trump's lawyers made their case before scores of courts and every instance they failed.

Mueller report recounts 10 'episodes' involving Trump and questions of obstruction

"Special counsel Robert Muller's report into Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen presidential campaign is now in the hands of congress and the American public. But while the investigation is over the nearly four hundred fifty page report is creating more questions. Bob Costantini reports from the White House attorney general bars statement based on the molar report out that while it was quite clear. Russia's internet research agency, affiliated with the Putin government trying to influence the campaign in favor of Donald Trump. Indeed as the report states, quote, the investigation did not identify evidence that any US person knowingly or intentionally coordinated with the IRA's interference operation, unquote. Put another way the special counsel found. No collusion. The report itself suggest the June two thousand sixteen meeting at Trump Tower arranged by Donald from junior with Russians claiming to have dirt on Hillary Clinton was one of many contacts studied under what's commonly referred to as collusion. Otherwise, quote, the Russian contacts consisted of business. Actions offers of assistance to the campaign invitations for candidate Trump and Putin to meet in person invitations for campaign officials and representatives of the Russian government to meet and policy positions seeking improved US Russian relations in quote, President Trump's initial public reaction was breath during an event hosting wounded warriors here and they're having a good day. I'm having to do it was called, no collusion. No obstruction. The attorney general Robert Muller handed off the idea of whether the president or someone close to him tried to obstruct Justice in the Russia investigation after finding ten potential episodes. Although the deputy attorney general disagreed with some of the special counsels legal theories and felt that some of the episodes examined did not amount to obstruction as a matter of law. We did not realize solely on that. In making our decision. Democrats on Capitol Hill will certainly try to look at those episodes further including the firing of James Comey and some of the president's tweets urging potential witnesses to not rat on him related to the obstruction of Justice aspect of the Muller reports bar over this bit of empathy for President Trump. There is substantial evidence to show that the president was frustrated and angered by his sincere belief that the investigation was undermining his presidency propelled by his political opponents and fuelled by illegal leaks. Robert Mueller lifted up. Bar deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein to look into whether the president or someone close to him could have engaged in obstruction of Justice. They decided no among the obstruction of Justice lines of inquiry Muller mentioned in the report are the firing of James Comey attempts to influence witnesses and the president's order to White House counsel dumb again that he tell deputy AG rod Rosenstein, the fire Muller Mcgann who spoke with the team for as much as thirty hours apparently refused to do. So in an effort to save the president from an appearance of structure of Justice add to that the alleged efforts by the president ticket. Michael Cohen to stay loyal once Cohen head criminal legal problems in New York Muller ends with a hint for congress to decide if it should charge the president with obstruction on the way tomorrow Lago. President Trump tweeted from Air Force One I had the right to end the whole witch hunt. If I wanted I have fired everyone, including Muller if I wanted I chose not to I had the right to use executive privilege. I didn't however the report makes a point of comment regarding obstruction. The president's to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful. But that is largely because the persons who surrounded the president declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests. And now it's up to congress to take the next step. Linda Kenyon, has the view from Capitol Hill. Michael if you thought it was over thank again special counsel made clear that he did not exonerate the president, and the responsibility now falls to congress told the president accountable for his actions. That's Representative Jerrold Nadler, the powerful chairman of the House Judiciary committee. He's leading one of the many investigations that will continue in the wake of the mullahs report. A report that found no collusion, but did not absolve President Trump of obstruction of Justice attorney general William bar who presented the report at a news conference was roundly criticized by many Democrats, including Nadler who said bar was far from Jek give bars words and actions suggest he has been disingenuous and misleading in saying the president is clear of wrongdoing. Nadler says the redacted Muller report is clear the President Trump. Committed multiple misdeeds report outlines disturbing evidence that President Trump engaged in obstruction of Justice and other misconduct. Senator Richard Blumenthal. A member of the Senate Judiciary committee says the misconduct on the part of the president is stunning. But that's only part of the story. Details in this report about the Russian attack on our democracy are truly chilling also calls into question, the objectivity of the attorney general Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, one of the only Republicans to make any public comment on the release of the mullahs report depicted, the attorney general the special counsel, and the deputy attorney general as beyond reproach all three of them about as close to a-political as you can imagine strong disagreement from Adam Schiff, the chairman of the house intelligence committee. Attorney general did a grave disservice to the country by misrepresenting significant parts of the mullahs report and shift says the attorney general also blast over the actions of the president of the United States there.

"Find that the Trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those efforts, and he quoted passages from a half dozen other parts of the Muller investigation, stating the same thing no collusion coordination conspiracy to coordinate to anyway advantage, the Trump campaign over others by way of interacting with Russia. And now, you would think that that might shut the door on it. I doubt it, but we shall see. Let's check in with Linda Kenyon, who's been a gauging reaction on cap. Little hill or doing as much as we can considering its holy week there, and they're in recess, but Linda, what are you hearing? Well, we have gotten quite a bit of reaction from some of the key players Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary committee Senator Richard Blumenthal, a member of the Senate Judiciary committee and have speaker Nancy Pelosi as well as Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer and more coming some trickling in some flowing again saying that this report is very damaging to the president. And that even though the attorney general said there was no collusion that doesn't mean. According to those who are responding so far that doesn't mean he did not commit wrongdoing. So we're going to be studying this probably in law, classes, and journalism, classes and political science classes for decades. To come. So they have pivoted away from saying that there is legal justification for saying the president committed a crime to to that this is unsafe. Re it's unethical. It's bad politics. They've pivoted to more of a an ethical kind of a code. It does seem that way. But you know, ethics is supposedly one of the Koya many a coins of the realme for politicians to come across as being ethical at least before they're supporters. And if you come across instead as having lied repeatedly, or you know, done unsavory things, the the only thing that many of the analysts, and then some of the Democrats have responded to so far have said is that the only reason the president was not charged with a crime collusion. Not a legal term, but charged with a crime is because. Was he had numerous people in his orbit who refused to carry out his orders, for instance, firing rod Rosenstein, or or firing or asking the attorney at that time again to to fire various people to fire Muller to to end. They Muller investigation all of which apparently the president of the United States tried to do it again. Absolutely refused. Well, we should also point out too that in the in the mullahs report, he writes that there were what he called fairness concerns. In other words, suggesting that if he were to raise the issue that the president was chargeable. He is still restricted under Justice department guidelines from charging a sitting president because you can paralyze the presidency, you can certainly undermine his authority moving forward. And that's why traditionally they don't charge a sitting president. And that absent that he had fairness concerns about doing it one thing we know about. The congress right now fairness is not something that they're going to obsess over. So does this mean that they will move forward with if not impeachment hearings some kind of hearing to investigate the obstruction angle. I think you could probably take that to the Bank. The Muller was operating under a very narrow objective to find a legal aspects of showing that the president committed crimes that the people in his circle committed crimes, as you know, there are certain people who are going to jail who are answer. Larry, and in some cases, central to this entire episode of Russian collusion. And so that's one thing. But the congress is not operating under that narrow purview. The congress can determine if the president has acted on ethics. If a president has committed impeachable if not criminal a wrongdoings, and so they fully expect that that they will continue congress, by the way, the Democrats in the house in particular since they have the majority in the house, and they have the power to gavel as well as the power to investigate and conduct oversight of the executive branch. Congress is very angry with the Democrats that is with the attorney general for basically saying, no collusion obstruction. Because the report, according to the House, Democrats is very clear that Moeller did not reach a conclusion on the obstruction issue that he was kind of leaving the door open for congress to follow up on that issue. John. He's says that explicitly that this does not preclude congress from fi from finding obstruction Linda, thanks so much. We'll know you you continue kicking over rocks. They're on Capitol Hill. And we'll wait for more reaction. Thanks so much. Thank you, your thoughts on this. You know, if you thought it was passed think again, one eight hundred eight five nine zero nine five seven one eight hundred eight five nine zero WJR, what did you think of these ten so-called episodes of possible obstruction by the president? We string them together. It doesn't look good. But it certainly not criminal at least not in the eyes of the aid..

Democrats demand full Mueller report

"One of the all-time great lines in congress, one of the all-time great lines in the modern history of Washington is the fake humble brag. I'm just a country lawyer. It was Senator Sam Ervin. The guy who led the investigative committee in the US Senate that looked into Watergate he was an experienced Senator. He was a Harvard trained lawyer. There was nothing simple about him at all. But he would do this thing he would turn on this folksy country lawyer humble thing as a prologue to his most devastating to the point questions. Now, I'm just a country lawyer, but like walk me through this. Sam Ervin is the one who started that during Watergate, and you hear members of congress now use it all the time. It is Sam Ervin that they're referencing. But usually it means they're about to say something pretty good today. It was Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal. Turn with. The whole I'm just a country lawyer trip. Now, we have gotten from the attorney general of the United States. We have been so fortunate to receive. A summary of the report, you know, who's beginning to say that report is inaccurate and unfair. The Muller came is beginning to say, you didn't do Justice to our report you can provide the findings and evidence. Now, I'm I'm just a country lawyer from Connecticut. But I can tell you the law is pretty clear there is no executive privilege. Congress deserves that full report. And so do the American people you pay for it, you deserve it. The full Muller report released the full Muller report, Richard Blumenthal. Speaking in washing today at one of the several hundred protests that happens around the country today this afternoon and the evening protests calling for the release of the Muller reports thirteen days now since it was completed by Robert Muller and handed in to the office of Trump's newly appointed attorney general, and it hasn't been seen since there were protests today in Washington DC there were protests in New York City, good size protests in New York City. There were protests in Chicago and Philadelphia and Raleigh North Carolina and Albuquerque New Mexico protests from Denver to Boston to. Saint Paul Minnesota to Langhorne, Pennsylvania. And it's interesting these are not policy protests. This is not an interest group that is fighting for more attention to its cause. Which is sometimes what you see in coordinated nationwide protests where people protested hundreds of different sites. What these protests were about today is a real live active fight right now that is underway. And we really don't know how it's going to end at the DC protests this afternoon, the one where Blumenthal spoke House Judiciary chairman, Jerry, Nadler, also spoke, and he said, although we are in the midst of this fight right now. And in fact, of course, he's the one who's really leading it for the democratic controlled congress. Now, they're turned on a little bit of the history. Professor thing today. Blumenthal was the I'm just a country lawyer now they're turned on professor now, they're who was your favorite guy from US history right junior year. He told this crowd outside the White House today that we have as a country have have had this kind of a fight before that presidents in trouble. Do this kind of thing that President Trump is trying right now with the Muller report, we should expect that they will try to get get away with the sort of stuff.

They don't stand for the first amendment. The purpose of freedom of the press is to inform the American people to give us news. Not to hear every left wing wack job every ethnic front group or people to come on and make these allegations. He's wild outrageous allegations. And it came up again on CNN. John Berman dumb as a doorknob one of their anchors. But he ran into a buzzsaw this time. Adam king Zinger who's been very good lately. A Republican congressman cut nine go US for God that change people's hearts. Yeah. I have a question for you. It has God needs to change people's language. And I ask you that. Because this killer, apparently, a screed some people call it a manifesto said he is a supporter of President Trump as a symbol of white identity. Why would anyone see the fire the symbol of white? I think God needs to change people's hearts, and I beg. He does. He needs to change your language, but you cannot put this on President Trump. I'm not putting up President Trump. There's one man who pulled the trigger. Okay. Yeah. The person who is giving a sign of allegiance to president. Trump is the killer hearing calls may symbol of white identity. The language he uses in this manifesto is all about invaders all about invaders, which is similar language to the killer of the synagogue in. Pittsburgh. It's also language that President Trump using a campaign ad before. The just listen to the sky go on and on. Hell he relishes this. These two mass murderers one killing juice the other killing Muslims. Said they don't like Trump. Let's say they had said they like Barack Obama Bernie Sanders. Her Nancy Pelosi is this kind of propaganda. We beginning. Is this what we heard from that maniac who shot Steve Scalise and others? Two years ago in Alexandria, Virginia. And a baseball field is this the kind of media coverage that we got back, then of course, not. Going on and on and on about Bernie Sanders propaganda. No. Is this the same media that has protected antifa? Time and time and time again. Yes, it is. Go ahead. Means something to white supremacists around the world why? So I think again to make the connection of a president saying I'm concerned, for instance, with illegal immigration and says invaders but to save that. And then to go to a guy let's say says invaders since one is Eddie triggering word for somebody to go out murder. Forty-nine people. I mean, the insanity here. Absolute insanity here. Go ahead. Fifty people. He may make a connection and say President Trump smile that doesn't put it on President Trump. I don't know what a sick man that would decide to kill forty nine. People innocently was thinking, I don't want to have any idea. Frankly, what was in his mind. But what I know is this it cannot be connected. We cannot sit here and say what is it that President Trump is doing that somehow triggering these people? This is an evil man that made a decision to murder forty nine people in that is on him, and frankly, the evil in his heart. When. When the Japanese attacked us on Pearl Harbor was happy because of Franklin Roosevelt and his language. I'm just curious. Well, we were hit on nine eleven was that because of George W Bush in his language. I mean, the insanity of all this. Try as they might try as they might the insanity is unbelievable. And this didn't even happen in the United States, and the mass murder wasn't even an American. But you see they heard Trump they hurt his language. They they're projecting. They wanted to be. So that's how insane this. They wish it were. So that this guy was traveling around with a brochure Trump for twenty twenty. That's what they want and they bring in a conga line of haters. Of the insane. Who go on and on and on? Do these people sound like they care about the forty nine souls who were slaughtered in New Zealand in two different mosques. Do these care spokesman sound like that. No, they don't do these reporters sound like it almost sound giddy. Add to bring in somebody from aljazeera to mainstream aljazeera while you're trashing Fox News left. And right. This is how low they've sunk. This is how low they've sunk. These are the same media institutions. That tried to destroy cavenaugh. There were more than happy to repeat the lowest form of lies. You can ever turn on a human being that he was involved in gang rape that he raped women on a boat. When they know it couldn't be true. He's a man of faith fifteen years as a circuit court judge. And now they're off to the races again. What exactly has the president of the United States done or said to deserve this nothing? Nothing. He said nothing at Charlottesville that supported the KKK or the Neo Nazis. A matter of fact, he said time and time again, then in that comment to the press before and after. And let's say he had this mindset is a white supremacist the clan and the Neo Nazis. Why would he say what he said today about the slaughter of Muslims? Why would he have tried to intervene twice? At the gassing of Muslims in Syria. Why would he do that? If he didn't care. Unbelievable. I know I'm supposed to go onto Dato O'Rourke. I'll get him. Don't worry. I'm not your typical host. I don't with that crap. I'll get one. We'll have fun. Don't worry. I promise. I'm not racing through the websites racing through the news.

"Senator Richard Blumenthal, constantly outraged by things that are not anti Trump and Paul manafort's forty months and not forty years in prison seems to have have the Democrats in a tizzy the two year vilification in allegations of collusion. The former Trump campaign manager gets not for years like everybody wanted a just gets four years like meant to surprise many. And it's about past crimes, not Russian collusion is this the first stop on the exoneration train or an aberration. We'll talk about that. I feel confident that her words were not based on any anti-semitic attitude. It's up to hurt it to explain. But I do not believe that she understood the full weight of the words wouldn't silting Stephen that is I don't understand what I'm saying is basically what she's saying back down. That's what speaker Pelosi did to the outspoken democratic freshman class of congresswoman Omar's antisemitic offenses, morphed into a generic childish anti-hate measure, it is a true disgrace with that. Let's bring in the host of Shannon bream show. It is Fox News at night. Correct, shannon. You are correct. And Chas got a book coming out. I started reading it is great. But Shannon, I off. This was one of the stories you covering yesterday. The measure that took two days to put together was basically something we learned in first grade don't be mean to people. That's how congressman Doug Collins summed it up on the floor. Don't keep people don't be mean to people. You should have learned that in kindergarten. But there were even Democrats who was frustrated with the co process, you probably saw a congressman. Democrats from quarter who happens to be Jewish should say, Vince should not be so hard. Why should it be so difficult for us to say as a caucus that we don't tamper antisemitism now? This is not the first time they've had to say that. I mean, multiple times in congress, which is only a couple of months old. So there's a lot of frustration there. And you know, there were a lot of folks who wondered why they added in everything including the kitchen sink. Now, we all know that you're not supposed to say bad things stereotype and be cool to people. But this was launched by a very specific episode at a very specific person who was not mentioned in the resolution. Yeah, here's Elliot angle chairman of four relations where she is a member on that committee. He's jewish. He condemned. Her comments a series of comments right away. You know, the whole thing where it's all about the Benjamins baby talking about why we're so pro Israeli or why the Jewish vote has so much power when she came out and said that I should not be expected to have allegiance stores or pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in congress to serve on any committee. So here's what Eliot Engel said cut four when he. So about this broad measure instead of a specific one the words spoken by our colleague from Minnesota last week touched a very real very raw place for me. And when a member of our body speaks the way, the Representative from Minnesota spoke, then we need to single out and say, we will not tolerate it. And this resolution is a fine resolution, and I will support it. But I am very disappointed that we weren't able to have a separate resolution to specifically condemn anti-semitism. And what our colleague said that really was was a very hateful turn these Democrats and was four zero seven two twenty three. No kidding. But everyone thinks we totally missed the point there. How much power these freshmen have shot? A you're in Washington every day. Are you surprised? Well, I mean, they salvaged seems to be running scared. I mean, it really does and yesterday congresswoman Cossio quartet's, Dr Chad pergram, you're producer over there in Capitol Hill and said, hey, we as freshman and is a women of color or be specifically targeted. I mean, so they're they're pulling out all the stops. And making a lot of noise and saying we're in charge work control. But you got remember to the the leaders like speaker Pelosi and others power for what gets to the four. How things are run and committee assignments she gave them committee assignments on how foreign relations, and so that is very troubling. For a lot of folks on the hill who say listen, congressman, Omar who keep stepping in this particular issue and causing a lot of trouble. And she said some formulations, and they're all kinds of people saying that's not the right place for her. The establishment folks like speaker Placide gave her this coast people call for her to go. You know, there's a lot of Democrats pointing back a Republicans. You guys aren't clean we have the moral high ground here. But you remember what happened was Steve king? He was stripped of everything. Everything jelled their so called for things to happen to these freshmen who are causing a lot of heartburn for the Democrats. They're not happy about it. Here's Cory Booker. Now. One thing about the president and gets himself in trouble. Sometimes doing it. He'll take questions at all times as a candidate businessman, and I know it because he did our show every week when he was just toasting the apprentice he wouldn't even want to minutes before we hopped on the air. What are we talking about? And he would take all questions. Listen to Cory Booker dare. I say a different philosophy cut six. So.
