Fresh update on "senator susan collins" discussed on Bloomberg Surveillance
"Democrats are thinking about their strategy, which includes possibly if a Joe Biden and wins the election to perhaps expand the size of the corporate. Apparently, that's Easier said than done. That kind of help us. Break it down. Welcome Madison Alder Bloomberg Law Judiciary reporter. So Madison tell us if what former vice President Biden were to win the presidential election. How, if, if, in fact the Democrats wanted to expand the court? How would they do that? There's a few things that needed to happen in order for Democrats even get to this point. Like he said. Joe Biden would have to win the election. Democrats would have to win back the Senate, and if they didn't have a 60 person majority, they would likely have to eliminate the filibuster as well. On then they would be able to potentially proposed legislation. Tio expands the Supreme Court by a couple of seats. So before we get to that point, potentially How likely is it that the Republicans Can, in fact, pushed through a candidate or a new justice prior to the election, or even prior to, you know, the January Day when perhaps they knew President would be seated. Well, you know this. This system is built on a series of norms of judicial nomination process on and you know, it will depend a lot on whether Mitch McConnell feels that he has the ability to do this and ah lot of political calculations. They're going to go into this as well, considering the same court vacancy could potentially impact Republicans were running for re election. But if if they want to do it, you know it would be difficult, but they would probably be able to have a vote before the election. It will just be ah political calculation on Mitch McConnell and with the Republican Party E T rephrase this Madison and I think it's really important and I go to Paul Cain. And Rachel Bids article in The Washington Post today below the fold, which basically said Look, everybody calm down. This is a done deal based on what you know about process, forget about whether somebody's in an upward one way or another or the other way. Is it basically just a done deal? It's hard to tell. But you know, the progressive groups right now are saying that they believe that they have Ah, chance here to stop this, But you know, there aren't very many mechanisms when you really get down to it. The Democrats can use if any two to stop this from going through. There isn't a filibuster. For Supreme Court nominees that was eliminated and Republican. You have the majority, so it is really a numbers game and you know if they don't lose these four votes They would be able to put a nominee through. I know this is not your bead, but we're going to ask our judiciary reporter. The obvious question is everybody is so focused on Madison Olders World. Stimulus and the rest doesn't matter. Well, you know, it's not to save it doesn't matter. But this is certainly shifted the focus of the election right now to to the Supreme Court to the judiciary, and we've seen this before. You know, we saw this when you know in Scalia's death in in 2016. It definitely shifted the elections. Focus, then. So it's someone of a repeat of that history that we've already experienced. Madison. What do we know about any Republican senators that may consider not supporting a new justice before the election? Well, we've seen a couple of Republican senators say that they are not on board with. You know this process happening before the election. The Senator Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski said that they were opposed to this. Um, I know that Senator Romney's in one that people have been talking about it potentially being on the fence. Hey, has not said whether or not he supports this a zoo today, but you know, it'll There will definitely be a focus on a few different Republicans to see whether or not they would support this because you know, the margin here is is fairly. Madison. Thank you. So much for the update. Madison older there. Bloomberg, Loes. You just see a reporter, of course with Greg store in the rest of our team looking at a story. I guess I could say soap operas that fit you right? And that was that feels like it. We'll see. And it's going to be extraordinary. Paul. Let's talk about the market lift here.

USPS suspends changes, but what does that mean?
"The US Postmaster General Louis Joy says he is suspending plans to reorganize agency. This move comes after House Speaker Nancy, Pelosi called Congress back from recess to vote on a bill to protect the postal service until the election, he was her response yesterday. They felt the heat. And that's what we were trying to do is to make it too hot for them to handle and yet she and other Democrats are still not entirely satisfied. Let's talk about what's going on here with NPR's miles parks who's been covering this miles. Hi David Will. So let's pick for exactly what the postmaster general announced here that that he's not making operational changes until after the November elections, right? Right. He says his plans for a transformation postal service are going to going on hold until after the election. Remember. He'd promised his organizational realignment just a few weeks ago as an effort to save money. But those changes although they were never publicly detailed in practice led to mail delays frustration from postal workers, unions, and fears about the election in a year where the majority of ballots are probably going to be delivered via the mail. The political backlash was loud and swift as Pelosi alluded to there. And he was forced to change course singing a statement yesterday that quote to avoid even the appearance of any impact on election male I am suspending these initiatives until after the election is concluded well as for those fears about the election I, mean many people were very blunt in saying they feared the president trump was trying to meddle in the election. So this move seems to be what Democrats? Were demanding what why aren't they fully satisfied so it's a step in that direction, but there's still no word on if the joys going to reverse the changes that have already been made their move sorting machines, for instance, has been a high profile issue. The Washington Post reported that the plan was to decommission ten percent of these machines and we know that some of them had already begun to. Be removed to join. Now says that there are no more machines will be removed, but as Stephen made no mention of the machines that were already removed and whether they'll be returned, I talked to Alex, Padilla who's the secretary of State of California and a Democrat after the statement was released by joy yesterday, they still have a lot of questions to answer and frankly information to share whatever these. Changes Directives were the public deserves to see them because the public deserves to have confidence that when their mailing their ballots ender bats will be delivered on a timely basis. So lawmakers will have a lot of questions for Detroit week when he set to testify before a Senate committee on Friday and then a house committee again on Monday. We've been hearing a lot of Democrats and their voices. Criticizing all of this, it's important to know Republicans have been really worried about all this as well. Right Republican Senator Susan Collins who had called onto joy to rescind the changes said on twitter that she was happy about this statement. But she also now says Congress needs to pass funding for the Postal Service, which is heading towards financial ruin. If Congress does not swoop in in the next few months, even President Trump tweeted save the post office this. Week after you know openly questioning whether he would support funding just a week ago. So it seems like there's some agreement some bipartisan agreement that money is needed. The question now is how much Democrats even Republicans like Collins say twenty five billion dollars is the number but Republicans in the Senate like Senator Ron Johnson may question whether that much money is actually needed. And so you mentioned is going to be testifying in both chambers the Senate is I write on Friday? What would we expect there? Right. So we're going to be watching for is one whether the Republicans we have to remember that joys a major Republican donor considering many of these Republicans represent rural constituencies who stand up potentially be hurt by mail the ways how hard Republicans press him the other thing that election officials are going to be watching for is more concrete details on his plans around the election. A lot of Democrats as you mentioned earlier, have accused him of sabotaging the mail in an effort to affect male voting election officials are worried about that. It'll be interesting to see how far joy goes to kind of assuage those

employs these views spills over into the state of the union Pelosi rips up trumps state of the union speech in a stunning scene so that's what they chose to highlight that was the first thing that you saw all of their and this story by Michael Goodwin talks about the definition of insanity and says that you know you've been **** up for three years with the juvenile resistance where you were refused even to negotiate over big national interests such as border control control them what it seems you couldn't sink any lower than that cheap partisan impeachment you engineered you hit a new low during the state of the union this was from the columnist Michael good when talking about what he saw as Nancy closely and what the you know what what she did so now house Republicans were talking about he was talking about house Republicans should demand a censure vote and make it clear that they're strong disapproval of close these temper tantrum should stand them that they don't agree with it and let Democrat sure where they stand on that kind of conduct of the focus was all about that and then there were a couple of other things relating to the speech itself so that's the New York Post you know how we roll in this country you get a little of this new got a little that but I thought it was interesting that there were all those pictures up and that's that's what they chose to go with now you go to the left coast there's a and then you go to the LA times and they lead with what I live with the president touting economic gains in the state of the union talking about Republican lawmakers chanting four more years before the president began speaking and then really setting up an intensely partisan tone for the address on the night of the full let's face it virtual certain acquittal and the Republican controlled Senate so that whole impeachment thing wraps up tomorrow I can't imagine that it's actually the more flooding that leave my lips is not going to do that's not changing that's it I mean virtually that it even senator Susan Collins who waves in five different directions when she feels like it decided she's going to show up and she's going to vote to acquit the the presidents of pretty interesting and most of the headlines when they went with the state of the union sure the economic part of it leads with that and it it's interesting because even in the LA times the opinion piece there that was done by Michael my god I think his name is is the senior editorial writer he said even if the Republicans in the house chamber hadn't begun shouting former years would have an obvious that the president's state of the union address was a campaign speech by another name and it it he said it also shows Democrats should take note it was an effective one despite any even says despite exaggerations dubious claims that are already being dissected by fact checkers which is true he's saying the president's emphasis on optimism and is talk about building the world's most prosperous and inclusive society was laced with some score settling and it was he's right it was throughout that state of the union you could see that lurking there and some of the big moments including because this is something especially older people are scared to death about in fact my whole life probably when I was born they started saying you're not going to have social security benefits have you heard that raise your hand if you for that I have my infrared nationwide glasses on and I can see yes yes a lot of hands over there in Arizona some in Florida yep the managers and so the president said we will always protect your Medicare and social security any attacked the those who want to take away your health care take away your doctor abolish private insurance entirely he said he promised we will never let socialism destroy American health care because remember for example Pete bhut aged is talking about universal healthcare some directly that's what that's a jab at I don't know that him specifically because Bernie Sanders as the same thing and of course that keeps coming up again and again and again and again I'm gonna give you one more let's go in the middle of the country because I just think it's interesting to hear what the scribes ages which very very much along the same lines that I would would say and what are they ultimately leading with especially in a place like Chicago and you can look at the different newspapers the truckers give the trip and you course of the sun times the trim says there's certainly there is the feet booted judge saying that he holds a lead over Bernie Sanders in the Iowa caucuses but the race is too close to call and then what they highlighted was this tensions on vivid display as trump uses the state of the union to campaign ahead of the impeachment vote Nancy Pelosi reflect the speech as the president finishes the the unit arrests and in fact checking the president's claims in the state of the union address and then goes on to dissect it from there so pretty much that was the slice of what you got from coast

"That America is the most pro Israel, less anti-semitic country on the face of the earth Jews have done magnificently here because of family and faith and academics and hard work. Israeli ambassador to America's said that this afternoon on CNN is the best place for Judah being anywhere in the world. And so what happened to them yesterday morning cuts at the soul of every Jewish-American? My boss is Jewish carpenter. And no matter what happens in political discourse in America that brings violence and the American media, the press CNN and their allies, always lecture, Trump Republicans and conservatives about our anger our rhetoric and our violence, but when progressives explode which happens on a regular basis, like stabbing Republicans sanding trucks on fire that say, I support Trump sending Sarah sending rice in in the mail to numerous Republicans, including Senator Susan Collins, or the children are the president whenever that goes on at no point are progressives ever lectured by the press, somehow, it's twisted and turned into Trump Republicans conservatism. Even when the president is the only one in American history to have Jewish grandchildren in even though the murderer in Pittsburgh. Had postings saying how much she hated Trump because Trump had Jewish grandchildren and Trump supported Israel. Somehow CNN is still twisted this thing and the something's wrong with Trump never mentioning the hatred. The radicalism of the left which exceeds what happens on the right? The whole Ferguson in Baltimore. Oh, the race writes the shooting at cops in Dallas in Baton Rouge came from black lives matter from the left never any connections. Forever. Made between the cop killers in Dallas during a rally a black lives matter, and then meeting in the White House with those same leadership of black lives matter saying what a great job they're doing and civil rights by the President Barack Hussein Obama and the media never said, wait a minute mister mister president. How do you meet with the leaders of a group advocating the killing of cops? What do we want dead cops? When you want them now, pigs in a blanket. Prime like bacon. There's never a connection made it doesn't exist. But Republicans and Trump are lectured constantly whenever violence takes place. It's always Trump's fault Trump's rhetoric. Trump's tweets the Republican party conservatism one, we're Republicans speak up. Have you ever heard about the guy from Utah who sent rice in to the president to kill him? Have you heard about the white powder? The rice in attack on the home of Senator Susan Collins by a leftist after she voted to confirm Brad Kavanagh, nor all the attacks on Trump's children.

He was also bashing Senate Democrats for torturing Brett Cavin on his family during the supreme court confirmation process before leaving Trump said cabinet has a great man who got caught up in a hoax. Anna charade created by Democrats of the Democrats so far left that will end up being. As well as being Venezuela. I think a lot of Democrats are going to be voting Republican. I have no idea how this is going to play in a full month from now. Then the cavenaugh thing could seem like a long time ago. I heard a political researchers say, yeah, everybody's energized. Now, and there's a lot of talk about who's going to their holes and the rest of it. And she said a month is a lifetime in politics in terms of enthusiasm. It always has been an especially now, but as to the accusation of whether the Democrats tortured Cavanaugh, we tortured some folks a confession from Barack Obama. Meanwhile, Senator Susan Collins was undecided news member on Kavanagh's nomination. She waited and waited and she waited she did her due diligence read all the FBI background investigation notes and found even after the FBI has interviewed everyone whom Dr Ford has named as present that horrible night that she remembers every single one of them, including her best friend has no recollection of anything like bats. And. So if you keep him off the court because a her claim, I think that's insane. But all of the media based on interviews. I saw over the weekend just thinks it's a horror that that wasn't enough. Or they have figured out what their audience wants to hear is giving it to them. And now that she's caster vote for cavenaugh. She says things have gotten even more scary more dangerous telling sixty minutes, this is as a situation as sag effort.

"Radio five, sixty key SFO. Hi, welcome back. There is a development. And I don't know what I think about this. I had my gut reaction to it. And then I backed off and I started thinking about it. It's a tweet from Senator Susan Collins, Susan Collins from Maine, she is buddy buddy with Lisa Murkowski. Lasca two Republican senators who are constantly thought to be on the bubble. And whenever there is a judicial nominee for any position. But especially the supreme court. I if there is any it is said that if there is any. This indication that that nominee might not be thinking the right way at abortion, and Susan Collins and Murkowski will vote with Democrats to kill the nomination. And because of this the Democrats are constantly applying pressure to both of them, and they have been working overtime to try to pressure. Susan Collins to commit to voting against cavenaugh because of their clams that he would reverse Roe versus Wade, and all paranoia that the Democrats have and she resisted. So the next thing they did they created a gofundme me I'm paying for a phantom candidate to oppose her. In the Senate campaign for main in that that that gofundme campaign or however, they funded it reached a million dollars. They were trying to blackmail her. They were telling her if you will commit devoting cavenaugh, then we'll pull this money out of the race against you. And we will not assist a candidate who opposed you. She didn't she didn't buck to that. When that failed they sent her and I'm not making this up. But I'm sorry. I have to tell you, but they sent her a three foot cardboard cutout of male genitalia. In another attempt to I I don't know what a bully her or offender, and she said, this is it I've had enough of this. I'm had enough of these anti cabin on tactics. So that Susan Collins, and she has been as I say target for much bullying and manipulation by the left. So she she sent a tweet out a little over an hour ago. Her tweet says I'm writing to the chairman and ranking member of the judiciary committee is that that would be Grassley and Feinstein, I'm writing to the chairman or ranking member to judiciary committee respectfully recommending that at Monday's hearing lawyers for professor Ford be allocated time to question judge Cavanaugh and lawyers for judge Cavanaugh. Be granted equal time to question. Professor Ford followed by questions from senators. My first reaction when I saw that was why don't we just cash in chips now and say the country as we knew it is over. We're now officially the Jerry Springer show in the United States Senate. Or or take your pick. Whatever daytime soap opera fair that people. Why are we serious about this? That lawyers for professor Ford be allowed time to question cavenaugh and his lawyers be allowed time to question. Her the way, she still has not responded to the invitation to show up to this thing on Monday. I think they ought to bag this and just do the vote on Thursday to hell with it. Just bag it and do it. But they won't because they're afraid of losing it now. But that doesn't matter the committee vote doesn't matter. Mitch McConnell can schedule a full Senate vote on this nominee without the committee voting. You know, protocol judiciary committee has a vote, and then that's supposed to inform the rest of the Senate that it's okay to vote for the guy or that. They shouldn't. I mean, that's how silly it is the judiciary committee votes, not going to determine how people in the general population of the Senate vote, but. We're actually because somebody said a letter to Dianne Feinstein. We're going to do all that we're we're gonna have a circus on Monday and code pink, and every leftist protest groups going to be in there. If you remember the embarrassment that happened during the confirmation hearings for four days Kavanagh's parents with their heads in their hands in a moment that. Any other time in American history would be one of the proudest most glorious days for an American family. That one of their children had succeeded and achieved in life to the point being nominated to be an associate Justice on the United States of Precourt. And it was turned into. Circus is not even the right way to describe what they did with the Democrats acquiescence in and letting it happen. I am certain. What should have been a moment of great, pride and. Overwhelming. Love and excitement was was turned into a. Despicable. Embarrassing. Spectacle. That was beneath all of the decency. This country is known for. And it was by design if they allowed that to happen during confirmation hearings. Can you imagine what this thing on Monday would become? So lawyers interrogate her and other lawyers interrogate him. As a nominee to be on the United States Supreme court and allegation that her lawyer says she doesn't even have to prove. And then after all that blowhard senators get their turn asking questions Dianne Feinstein, Chuck Schumer, dick Turpin. Susan Collins, then tweeted such an approach would provide more continuity. It would elicit the most information and allow an in-depth examination of the allegations. That is just. Whatever it is. It is a gigantic comedown Eddie rate. All this notwithstanding hurt tweet probably will send the Democrats into orbit with rage because they were counting on flipping her. They were counting on her saying before this even began she's had enough. This is the last straw. I can't support the guy look at what's being said I can't possibly, but that's what they were hoping Collins would say now she wants to. See a circus. Kavanagh's lawyer hired a lawyer, I should tell you this. Brent was hired Beth Wilkinson. Does the neighboring about who Beth Wilkinson is a she's the wife of David Gregory. Of CNN slash NBC. Be she represented Hillary Clinton staffers during the FBI investigation into Clinton's private server. Those staffers were Cheryl mills, Jake Sullivan, Heather Samuelsson, Philippe Reines. She's also said to be a stellar lawyer. And apparently one of her specialties is defamation. Attacking and defending defamation. Which is exactly what this is. This is an upfront attempt to defame and destroy Rhett Cavanaugh, so say yesterday, you know, we we oppose some of the nominees Democrats put forward, when's the last time you remember anybody on our side trying to literally destroy the life and career and reputation of a political opponent any more so than they already had. Bill Clinton was evidence. He did nothing was made up. And all those people defending Bill Clinton saying it doesn't matter. It's just sex Hillary Clinton, and all these other people responsible for trashing these women that came forward are. Now, the same people claiming that Cavanaugh is scum. And that this woman who's never said a word about any of this for thirty six years is eminently believable. After take another break. And I promise we'll come back and resume with the phones. Because a lot of people wanna way..
