Cheney: Trump attempted to contact Jan. 6 witness
"The house panel investigating the capitol attack has looked into Donald Trump's last ditch effort to push his false election fraud claims before he summoned rioters One aide described it as unhinged a late night White House meeting in December 2020 where Trump's outside advisers suggested having the military seize state voting machines It's a terrible idea What they were proposing I thought was nuts Intake testimony former White House counsel pat cipollone and administration lawyer Eric hirschman shot it down Hours after the meeting Trump fired off a tweet urging supporters to a rally Be there will be wild What Florida congresswoman Stephanie Murphy says was a call to action And in some cases as a call to arms With far right extremists then swarming the capitol as the hearing ended vice chair Liz Cheney said Trump recently phoned a panel witness who refused the call And this committee has supplied that information to the Department of Justice Sagar Meghani Washington

"Message politically that Trump is arguably trying to meddle in this investigation and it puts him on notice. We heard the testimony from one of the rioters Stephen ayers, who said he had no intention to go into the capitol when he came to Washington on January 6th, let's listen to what he said. No, we didn't actually plan to go down there. We went basically to see the stop the steal rally and that was it. So why'd you decide to march to the capitol? Well, basically, you know, the president got everybody riled up, told everybody head on down. So we basically just following what he said. Ryan, I know you've been following these sort of dual track process. He's here. What do you think the committee was trying to get at with this testimony in this line of questioning to him and was it effective? Well, one of the things that the committee has been trying to do is present a case that Donald Trump is directly responsible for inciting the mob and then sticking it on the capitol, so to speak. Directing it at the capitol like a loaded gun. And I think that that's what they've been trying to do with other bits of testimony, but today we heard them try to get that out of in every man American who is at the rally didn't intend to go to the capitol, came to D.C., he said, to support the president and that it was what Donald Trump had to say at the rally in directly telling them to go to the capitol that made him go there. And he also talked about how he was angry. He was angry after listening to Trump's speech and as he was marching down to the capitol. I think that that's part of the case that the committee here was trying to build. Domenico, we also heard some new evidence of text message exchanges on January 6th between former Trump campaign manager Brad parscale and Trump spokesperson Katrina pierson. I want to hear you respond to this. So let's take a listen to congresswoman Stephanie Murphy as she reads those texts. Mister parscale said, quote, this is about Trump pushing for uncertainty in our country, a sitting president asking for Civil War. And then when he said, this week I feel guilty for helping him win, Katrina Pearson responded, you did what you felt right at the time and therefore it was right. Mister parscale added, yeah, but a woman is dead. And yeah, if I was Trump and I knew my rhetoric killed someone, when miss Pearson replied, it wasn't the rhetoric. Mister Pascal said, Katrina, yes, it was. Domenico, what did you make of that exchange that correspondence? Well, I have to say it's eye opening, but not a 100% surprising to me, because and it's not because of parscale, it could be anybody, right? I mean, there's a whole host of people within the Trump orbit who, you know, have either run campaigns before, have been involved in politics. You've heard how many reporters have you heard say, well, privately, we hear, you know, Republicans on Capitol Hill say X, but publicly they don't want to be seen as going against president Trump. There are some people who you see who seem to have come off the Kool-Aid, and some people who you see or continuing to drink it. And you know, it looks like at least in this honest moment with parscale and Katrina Pearson, he didn't know, obviously, that his text messages were gonna be revealed for an entire national audience at a committee looking at this, but you see that he came off the Kool-Aid for a few minutes. I also want to play a little bit of audio from Jason van tatenhove. He is the former oath keeper who testified before the committee today. Let's take a listen to what he had to say. What it was going to be was an armed revolution. I mean, people died that day. Law enforcement officer said this day. There was a gallows set up in front of the capitol. This could have been the spark that started a new Civil War. Deirdre Walsh, he is essentially an expert witness, but he was not at the capitol on January 6th. Can you talk us through why the committee might have wanted to focus on him here? I think a lot a step back in terms of what this committee is charged with doing, right? As they are charged with investigating what happened that day and making recommendations going forward. A lot of the testimony that we've heard over the last several weeks has sort of shown us that things were worse than we knew that day, right? In terms of the violence in terms of the planning in terms of how many people were involved, people at The White House were setting off alarm bells. I mean, this was a witness who was saying, you know, this oath keepers group was a paramilitary group that was looking for a way to legitimize its activities. And sort of warning that this could happen again if we go down this road again, this kind of group could be activated again. I mean, I don't know that he was the most compelling witness, but I think it sort of played into the committee's narrative about what comes next. We do know that we're going to get this report in the fall, and there are efforts to try to pass some reforms to the process the electoral count act, the governs how Congress certifies the electoral votes and perhaps some of this testimony will be sort of underlying the argument to why that needs to happen now before the next election. Claudia, we saw something a little different in the run up to this hearing in the past, we have sometimes gotten the witness list in advance. We've known what to expect, but that wasn't the case today. And I understand that it's because of security considerations. Exactly, we heard from a committee select aides who told reporters that they would not be releasing this information. Yes, they have released it in the past. We would get it at least several hours before the hearing. But it seems as though there was a shift when we saw the hearing with Cassidy Hutchinson that emergency last minute hearing that was held last month. And the concerns that were brought up at the end of that hearing, Cheney brought those up as well where she featured some attempts to reach out to witnesses they didn't reveal who these individuals may have been that were trying to get in touch with witnesses, but it did raise the specter of witness tampering. And so we've seen a shift since then about sharing these witness names. And they really kept the details of who was appearing because of these fears of security very closely held and it could be something that we could

"Of the union, he mentioned a number of things that I think would have bipartisan support or at least be able to receive the two 18 and make it through the Senate that we should move forward. I'm particularly pleased that he mentioned the prescription drug piece that I worked hard on with a handful of other moderates to craft to a place that we thought would not only allow Medicare to negotiate but also cap insulin at $35. And that's something we should look at. What's your advice to The White House? And the House Democrats, if they want to hang on to the majority in the midterms. Stop showing up at a emotional. Painful conversation with constituents with data to try to convince them that what they're feeling isn't true. Whether it was inflation or the cost of gas or the rising cost of food or supply chain shortages that are impacting their ability to buy their kids the cleats they need to play soccer, whatever it is we have to acknowledge that this is what the American people are going through and then work together to figure out ways to actually solve that problem. Instead of trying to convince them that it's not really happening. And I saw a bit of that last night, the administration is acknowledging that infrastructure is I'm sorry, inflation is an issue. And the president laid out some ways in which he thought he could address it and reasonable people can have debates about how we do that. But we have to borrow in borrowing some prior politicians word, feel people's pain. And then work from there. I think minute that we have left, so then does that do I take from what you just said that you think that President Biden has his finger now on the pulse of the country and that his State of the Union address demonstrated that he understands the pain that they're feeling at the kitchen table level? I was grateful to see that his State of the Union reflected in more pragmatic approach than the joint address from a year ago and we're heading the right direction and he needs to know that he has allies here in Congress, but moderates progressives, Democrats, Republicans alike, willing to help him help the American people.

"Countries in an unpredictable and unprecedented way. He wanted to quickly defeat Ukraine on the battlefield and look, he is facing the kind of courageous resistance of freedom loving people who are fighting to defend their country. They were putting up such a fierce fight in their inflicting heavy damage on Russian forces and also exposing for our purposes. The shortcomings in the Russian military and their logistics challenges and other weaknesses that is important for us to know. And at the end of the day, I think Putin wanted to show that Russia was a global power and he wanted to reclaim something that never really was there for them. And instead what he has done is he's made Russia a pariah nation and he's also deeply damaged the Russian economy. So I am heartened and encouraged by how our allies have pulled together and freedom freedom loving people around the world have showed up to provide support for the Ukrainian people. I'm going to get you one more question on this because I've got two big chunks of this interview at topics that I want to get to. But you mentioned that you were a national security specialist at the Department of Defense back in the day before you were a member of Congress. And I'm curious, how much damage did the previous administration do to the western alliance by downplaying and badmouthing NATO by not actively saying that it would support article 5 of the NATO the NATO charter did that give you think president Putin a false sense of security that when push came to shove, the NATO alliance would not come together and respond in the way that it has. I certainly don't think that the last administration's coddling of Russia was helpful on many fronts. But what I would say is that this administration stands in stark contrast to the last administration. Last night, we heard the president on the State of the Union of firm our commitment to article 5, while there will not be troops deployed into Ukraine, he has made it very clear that we will defend every piece of territory under our NATO alliance. And we are sending forces there to make sure that Putin understands that we are serious about our commitment. I also think that this administration has done a good job in diplomatically corralling all of our allies and leading. I'm somebody who believes that American leadership is so critically important in this world. And it's really heartening to see a change of pace. And I'll add that the last administration isn't done undermining our efforts to stand together in this moment of crisis in Europe. It is stunning to imagine that a former president would admire president Putin and Putin's aggression against another nation in the aftermath of the invasion when we look at the humanitarian catastrophe that is unfolding there. And these people fighting for their democracy, how can you stand on the side of Putin? Well, let's keep talking about him, meaning the former president of the United States and bring it closer to home, and that is the work that you're doing as a member of the January 6th select committee. There were reports or talks that both Rudy Giuliani, who was Trump's personal attorney and Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump's daughter have been in touch with the committee about impending testimony about whether they're going to testify. One, do you have any news on that? And two, do you really think that they'll actually come in voluntarily and testify? Well, I really appreciate your question as it is among the questions all over D.C. media. Can you give me the dirt on what's going on with the committee? And the answer is I don't want dirt. I just look at my answers. Yeah, well, we really need to protect the integrity of the investigation that we are conducting because it matters whether or not somebody who's coming before our committee knows what we know, and so we are being very deliberate about it. What I will say, though, is that January 6th isn't too far afield from what we're talking about in Ukraine. Autocratic forces are on the march in the world today. And as Americans, we need to stand up and defend democracy, whether that is overseas or here at home. And a core tenant of our democracy here at home is a free and fair election. And the ability for people to accept the results after they have exhausted the constitutionally accepted process. When we got to January 6th, the courts had already settled the cases. We can not find ourselves in a situation where elected leaders find whatever loophole they can to try to hold on to power because that makes us know better than any autocracy in this world. And so what is that stake is democracy and that's why it's so important as a member of the select committee that we protect the integrity of the investigation and not really comment on some of your questions. Chairman Benny Thompson was here. I interviewed him. And I asked him, you know, would there be televised hearings? He said, yes, and that they would be in prime time. My question to you is when. We are still deep in the process of collecting the information and doing the investigation, but we also realize that we have the obligation and the opportunity to share the information that we have collected with the American people in a way that is consumable. I think too often up here in Washington, we talk in terms of reports, dense reports and. Legislative language, and we don't tell enough of the story. And so as a committee, we're committed to telling the story of how we found ourselves on the precipice, how we found our democracy on the precipice on January 6th, and how we can fix some of the weaknesses within our democracy after all wherever evolving and it is incumbent upon one generation after the next to reinforce our democracy and to ensure that no one strong man or one strong person can corrupt our constitution and undermine our democracy. As a member of the select committee, have you learned things? I'm not asking for specifics, but have you learned things that just made your jaw drop? Things that we don't we in the general public don't know about. But you were there on January 6th. You're a member of Congress. Did you have you learned things that you didn't even know had happened or were happening and you were when you were living it in real time? I absolutely have learned things that are shocking and deeply, deeply disturbing. You have to understand that I came from a country that was a democracy until it wasn't. And when I was at the Department of Defense, I worked with countries around the world that were fledgling democracies who had situations like coups and had to work on bolstering their democracy. So I understand the fragility of our democracy. I don't take it for granted any day that I'm here that I have the greatest privilege to live in the greatest country in the world, but that it isn't part of my responsibility to ensure that our next generation benefits from our economic system.

"Bit It's about all the House Democrats are retiring I thought they were doing it because they thought they were going to lose You have a different thought First of all how many are retiring Well so far we have 18 Democrats and only four Republicans who are retiring That is not seeking higher office There's also a little more half a dozen of both parties who are running for governor or senator or whatever But 18 to four which is a pretty steep ratio Yeah so if you're just looking at that typically in a midterm election you can say that's because they've decided they're going to lose the majority Exactly I'm sure that is at least a piece of it But it turns out that when you look into who exactly is leaving there's something striking about the Democrats which is that with only one exception out of the 18th they are how should I put this old That's the way to put it That's exactly right Give us a sense of how old they are because you've got some numbers in here which are pretty striking Yeah of the 18 four of them are in their 80s All but four of them So 14 out of 18 will hit at least 70 if they served out if they ran for the next chairman and served them out Overall including the one young member Stephanie Murphy of Florida who's only going to be 44 by January 3rd next year when the new Congress starts But including her at 44 years old they averaged about 71 years old So this is elderly group of members of the House Yeah we're retiring your 80s doesn't seem too outrageous Mentioning Stephanie Murphy who's that democratic congresswoman from Florida raises another issue which is redistricting And that certainly is a piece of it And she in particular has done poorly in registration She's probably is almost certainly retiring because she has very little chance to get reelected How Republicans in Florida who control the process in that state we're able to do it But a lot of the Democrats who are retiring actually have safe seats or relatively safe seats But we also know that a lot of members meet a member of Congress means being a representative and it means having a representative relationship with your constituents And if you're district gets moved around even if you move from one set of democratic voters to a different set of democratic voters or the same for Republicans all of a sudden you're losing your district and that may put a damper on people who some of them are there because they just want to serve their neighborhoods They know the people around them and they want to serve them Taking a look at a retirement or refusal to run again can one of two different ways One is going to be a sort of a symptom of what's going on to say look at the reason they're doing is they don't think they'll win It could also help be a cause could it not could this affect the Democrats or the Republicans chances of prevailing come November Well in the old days I would have said yes This is a sign that first one in those specific 18 districts and then generally that there's going to be that resources are being deployed So the Democrats who are depressed about their chances are not going to have the resources But I'm a little skeptical of that for this round For one thing the incumbency advantage is basically disappeared Political scientists used to find that it was a real advantage putting aside everything else controlling for everything else just plain being an incumbent in the district was a real advantage That's disappeared because of partisan polarization People are just voting their party and not sort of voting for the specific person who represents them For me at least that's a big headline because I had believed for years that incumbents basically won and the thing was set up the whole system was rigged for incumbents with their Democrats and Republicans And that was absolutely true in the 1960s and 1970s when a lot of political scientists did the original research on this There was a real advantage to being an incumbent Now most incumbents are going to win anyway because they just if you think about the basics well they want to make this request last time Yeah probably going to win that district Next time because the voters like that kind of person but almost always now it's bipartisan not There used to be a real bonus You knew who you remember Congress was and you thought something good about them even if you thought Democrats are terrible but my member she takes care of us or Republicans are terrible in Washington but I don't like Donald Trump but my Republican well he got us funding for such and such It does back to so you and I have talked about before which is sort of the nationalization of local elections Exactly That's exactly what's happened It's fascinating So what do you make of all this First of all we don't know yet how many people will decide not to run right The climate the clock is not run out Right We're coming up on the very first of the primary elections and so in some states the filing deadlines already happened But the final states aren't until June and then I think a couple of them are in July So there's still some months but the bulk of them have happened but there still could be another rush to the exits Which could change what's going on You also have the historical phenomenon and typically in those midterm elections the reigning party loses That's absolutely great And the other thing is that in years ending with a two years right after the census you typically get a lot more retirement than the usual So the one thing that Republicans can take away from the numbers so far is we've had very few Republican retirements So they're sticking around That's for sure Thank you so much really great to have you here for

the bill back better plan For the politics of what we're seeing we welcome now el mahder He's a partner in brownstein Hyatt farber and Shrek So now thanks so much for being back with us So first of all let me put you on the line Are they going to vote And if so when So I think they will David and the big question My guess is later today there's only four or 5 holdouts right now People like Stephanie Murphy from Florida at case from Hawaii Jared golden Maine Josh Scott I'm in New Jersey So I believe that they will come around She needs two of those people And I think she'll get them And frankly it's an opportunity for any one of them to be make a strike a big bargain to get to start with the finish line today So let's assume they get over the finish line Are they going to vote on both bills at the same time more or less that is to say infrastructure bipartisan as well as a build back better It will follow shortly yes I'll vote on Bill back better first if she gets these two more votes and then she'd be in the speaker And then vote on the infrastructure Bill you'll probably get anywhere between 5 and 15 Republicans voting for that So it will be another bipartisan success And that will promptly go by the way through a White House signing ceremony whereas the reconciliation bill the build back better bills going to be unresolved in the Senate for weeks Well exactly So the infrastructure Bill at least theoretically fairly quickly will become law and will be off and running because there is bipartisan support as you suggest But the build back better whatever they pass in the house how much different will it look when it comes out of the Senate Because the Senate doesn't necessarily agree with everything the house is talking about right That's correct I would say it'll be 85 to 90% similar It will probably be slightly smaller because there's a discrepancy in opinion as to how much of the bill is actually paid for And senator Manchin in particular is opposed to any legislation that's not fully paid for So he's going to want to see a CBO score that suggests it's fully paid for And if it isn't he's going to want to pair it back How long is the CBO score take Is there a typical answer to that Is there a normal time There is actually it usually takes about ten days to two weeks So final legislation we're talking about let's be honest it's probably December before we're done here Well unfortunately you're right And I say unfortunately because Congress tends to act only when faced with deadlines And the next pressing deadline is going to be raising the debt limit which will come due sometime in December So I wouldn't be surprised to see that getting coupled with this build back better bill and a reconciliation process sometime in middle December which would be quite a political cluster A lot of palooza there Of reconciliation in all likelihood So take us through what happened on Tuesday with the elections and an effect if any on what we're seeing in Capitol Hill right now Obviously the Democrats did not have a good day Tuesday Has that changed the dynamic up on Capitol Hill Yes That's why you have these moderates in the house saying they don't want to vote on this bill right now They're anxious about it They're worried about their election next year And every Democrat who ran in a close race in 2018 is terrified about next year But the best way for them to get reelected if they can is to pass probably both of these bills and then met work like heck to message them The Democrats problem is one more of messaging men of fact We just added 500 plus thousand jobs this quarter unemployment is down to 4.6% The stock market is up to record highs But the president is approval of terrible and the right track wrong track number is terrible We haven't done a good job messaging what we're trying to do The individual elements of the bill back better bill are quite popular which not popular is talking about spending trillions of dollars And so if we pass these bills and then do a better job of explaining to people what we've actually done the hope at least is that that will give some of our folks in these frontline races of fighting chance What is the temperature right now within the Democratic Party in two regards One is people being willing to run for office a year from now in the midterms And two people willing to donate to the campaigns Is it harder to raise funds today than it was a week ago Slightly But I think if these bills pass that can change I mean look when the president at 42 43% that cast a pall over everything Terry's loss in Virginia I've known him for years That's a very big loss and a frustrating loss if you're a loyal Democrat So yeah it makes it tougher But the DNC is doing great The SEC and the D triple C which are the party committees that help Senate candidates and house candidates are doing quite well So I don't think in the end that will be that big of a deal What's more important than money frankly is voter enthusiasm and you saw in Tuesday's election both in New Jersey and in Virginia a surge of Republican enthusiasm that outpace the democratic voter enthusiasm And that's a greater concern to most of the party Did the Republicans win on Tuesday or do the Democrats lose.

"Slash. Black history continued all right before we go. we do. Have some exclusive polling that was conducted for the good folks at tax march by algae research which is a john endzone firm former obama pollster. And biden's top pollster They served a few thousand likely. Midterm voters in six districts represented by some of the centrist democrats in the house who forced this infrastructure vote and have been complaining about build back better. Kurt schrader and oregon. Jared golden and main scott peterson california lizzy fletcher in texas. Stephanie murphy in florida and caroline bordeaux in georgia Here's the bad news. Biden's approval underwater and all these districts except california and oregon and republicans lead. The generic midterm ballot. In the main georgia districts. Here's the good news. Despite that very challenging political environment for biden and democrats build back better has at least fifty seven percent support. In every district a plurality of voters in every district say the bill would have a positive effect on them and their families personally and that they would be less likely to vote for their member of congress next year. If that member voted no on build back better What was your takeaway from these. Polls what are we doing people. You have a very popular of legislation that people like and what. It's not just that it is popular. It's also not polarizing it people are not republicans are not angry about. This is not get them fired up this by focusing on these issues in this bill we have. We are focusing on issues that unite our base. Divide their base. That's exactly where you want to be politics. It's very hard to find those things we have them. It's before us and we are tripping over own two feet it is. This is why. I maintain some measure of relative optimism. That something is going on here because the political logic for doing it is so overwhelming failure is obvious disaster and even the people as you pointed out earlier about the people who need this most are the most one democrats. This is good for them. This is not like the affordable care act or the steelers these other very polarizing environments. The republican coalition does not get fired up about size of government issues. Like it used to and they are not. They don't care about the debt. The deficit on anything else other than racial and cultural issues. And so you can go do this in an wall. Strengthen you with your since independence not gonna make your prompts any worse not going to fire up republicans so just go do it and lest anyone think that the way the question was worded was just you know some progressives in a poll trying to make it sound as good as possible. Here's how the plan was described in the very long question.

"When asked the respondents favour Republican by a net 7% with 49% of the vote. Now we have a long way to go before the election. But let's be honest. It's Biden in the White House. Things aren't going to get much better. Florida's seventh congressional district, which is the district in which I lived And it's currently held by representative Stephanie Murphy. There's several guys in the primary, the Republican Party Republican primary to try to run against Stephanie Murphy. At this point. I'm not even sure if she's running. I mean she was going to run. For the Senate against Marco Rubio. Those were the rumors and rumblings around town here, But and then you had Val Demings step up to the plate, and she's a black woman, and she had a little more national notoriety, So they just kind of kicked Stephanie Murphy to the curb. But before then, Stephanie Murphy was probably going to be the shoe in to run against Marco Rubio. And I think she really would have given Marco Rubio hate to say it to run for the run for his money. I don't know that that's necessarily true with Val Demings. I don't believe it is. I don't I think she's a good congresswoman. I don't think she would be a good senator. I just don't think she's as impressive as others think. But right now, Stephanie Murphy, who was I mean? She took over from John Mica, who was a well known congressman and our area and she just became difficult to beat. But all of a sudden there's going to be some redistricting. It's not looking good for her anymore. Iowa's third congressional district is on the ropes. You have Michigan's eighth congressional district that's held all of these. All of these districts are held by Democrats currently And I'm telling you people are trying to step away from the bite the Biden administration because it's it's just nuts. Michigan's 11th congressional district held by representative Haley Stevens, is also in trouble. Biden's approval there sits at 45%. Oh, the eighth District in Michigan, where representative of Lisa slot Slotkin Uh, is Biden's approval is only at 42%. This is a Michigan guys, Virginia's second correct congressional district held by representative Elaine Lauria. Biden's approval sits at just 46% so Democrats are feeling the heat. But here's the thing. The Biden administration doesn't care. They think they know or they realize that it's more than likely anyway, that they're going to lose the house in 2022. They're going to go for broke. And so you've got to be braced for this. They are going to go for broke. They don't care. They've shown that they don't care about the American people. They care about their agenda. The fact that you would leave Americans behind In Afghanistan and lie to the American people and play this game. Okay. Any American that wants to come back from Afghanistan will bring back. Yeah, yeah. Sure, Joe. I'm sure there's some Americans there that are trapped there that want to be subjected to rape, torture being whipped, being stoned to death. I'm sure people that have grown up in America or lived in America for any length of time really prefer to experience Taliban rule rather than the good old fashioned United States of America. That makes a lot of sense. Joe Biden. Of course, it doesn't It's foolish. It's nonsense. And most people understand that. It's nonsense and those that don't they're just diehard partisans. And it's a waste of time talking to him Washington's eighth congressional district, which is held by representative Kim Schreier, Biden's approval sits at 46%. So these I mean, the guy's well under well under, um These. These districts are well within striking distance, I should say, And so I think it is going to hurt the Biden administration. Alright before we go to break, let's go ahead and take a call. Let's go to, uh, let's go to windy and Rancho card ova, California Wendy, Welcome to the Larry Elder. So you've got the mic. Hey, Carl. Great show. Thank you And Larry Elder tomorrow. Good things come to those that wait so forward to tomorrow, Alright. The reason I'm calling is because Back when Obama the fundamental change. The The only car like I said it to the guy that answered, Uh, redistribution of wealth, right? So why we're Americans, with American papers and passports being sent back being denied to get to those planes. Because those are the people that are of value. And since they can't outright probably shipped pallets of money again. These are unfortunately, are Americans are a commodity to the Democrats. And Is America going to say? No, don't pay for those Americans. Although you're not supposed to, You know, uh and here to terrorism and kidnapping and And all of that, But no, we're going to pay to get those Americans back, and this is another way of us, giving our money to them as a form of redistribution of wealth. Everything's got a big picture. No. Two Bacal could've went this poorly for no reason. Wendy, listen, get the big picture. Wendy, Listen, I I appreciate the call. It's It's amazing how it's easy to believe virtually anything right now, because nothing makes sense. And that's not to say Wendy's point is.

"And they can't get a voting rights act passed a more robust version of it. It's just pathetic man. It really is so thank you for pointing that out. So the john lewis voting rights. Bill as i mentioned earlier and easy one to pass because all every democrat agrees with. It doesn't mean it's sufficient is will. I take it on top of for the people i would love to have it on top of for the people like but if you're gonna do it in substitute for the people which the real bill which is what mansion is saying in the senate bill. I want to water down version to john. Lewis version major on an op-ed about about that so in reality this entire things a trojan horse to let mentioned in the republicans. Get everything they want. And the final part of. This is a quote from mitch mcconnell. So when he saw the scoring going down the republican leader in the senate said. I wish the moderates in the house success referring to the moderate democrats. He said i'm pulling for them. We're doing our part so right there. That is an admission that corporate republicans corporate democrats have been working together this whole time. They on economic issues. They're the same party. So mitch mcconnell's say god heimer stephanie murphy makes a semi log is specifically referred to the house there. So let's keep it to the nine conservative democrats That got this trojan horse accepted. Now that doesn't explain why everybody in the media cannot read and doesn't understand simple logic like how could it have passed if the three and a half trillion dollar version hasn't even been written. Why are you pretending it passed when it doesn't even exist exactly exactly all right well Since we're on the topic of corruption within the democratic party. Let's stay on that topic and revisit the eviction moratorium and the wall street interests at play in convincing democrats to avoid fighting to extend the eviction. Moratorium a new. Ty t. investigates p shows how wall street corruption played a massive role in convincing corporate democrats to avoid fighting to extend the eviction moratorium when he had recently expired. Now luckily the cdc under the biden administration. was pressured to extend the moratorium because of wonderful progressives like corey bush forcing them to bend to her will. She did a protest where she slept on the steps of the capitol for several nights and it the by demonstration so they extended moratorium although it wasn't as robust as the previous moratorium but nonetheless. We're now seeing the figures that some corporate democrats including those in democratic leadership Received from wall street interests who seek to end the moratorium as soon as possible so alongside pelosi democratic leaders including Steny hoyer who is the house. Majority leader and three other democratic leaders.

Stephanie murphy in the house is a democrat from florida. She say my is wrong about the three and a half trillion dollar bill. I can't believe how much money it spends. The republicans are right. She's not going to vote for now and think about think about what. Corporate democrats are citing as the obstacle the reason why they have become such a massive obstacle in getting that three point five trillion. Dollar bill passed. It's because they don't want tax cuts for their corporate donors so think about how that's going to play out politically for the democratic party. You think people are stupid. Think they're not paying attention. They're not going to know why. Corporate democrats are holding up this incredibly important piece of legislation so have at it and by the way real quick the the john lewis act. Let me let me clear about that as well I guess a voting rights act. That's been scaled back considerably from the for. The people act is better than nothing but compared to the for the people act. It's not great. it's just not. Let's just keep it real. I want them to pass something. So if they've already caved to corporate democrats on issues like that. I mean they keep it anybody right. They have control of the house and the senate. This is about their own self preservation..

While you were holding back the mob that the lower west terrace entrance i was holed up with congresswoman kathleen rice in a small office about forty paces from the tunnel. That you all were in. That's about the distance where i'm sitting here on the dice to that back wall and from that office in close proximity to where you all help the line. I listen to you struggle. I listened to you yelling out to one another while. I'm telling you that you are our last line of defense and during the exact period of time officer. Hodges in that video where you were sacrificing your body to hold that door it gave congresswoman rice and i and the capitol police officers who have been sent to extract us the freedom of movement on that hallway to escape down the other end of that hallway and i shudder to think about what would have happened. Had you not held that line. I two young children. I have a ten year old son and a seven year old daughter there the light of my life and the reason i was able to hug them again was because of the courage that you and your fellow officer showed that day and so just a really heartfelt thank you. I think it's important for everybody though to remember that. The main reason rioters didn't harm any members of congress was because they didn't encounter any members of congress and they didn't encounter any members of congress because law enforcement officers.

"Caputo, mark. Always great to talk to you. And let's start with Val Demings in the news that you broke earlier in the week. Originally, the conventional wisdom seemed to be that She would run against Marco Rubio for the U. S Senate seat. But then there was a lot of talk that she was looking more at a race for at the race for governor going up against the Santis. But then you broke earlier this week that she is in fact going to enter the race against Marco Rubio. Can you talk a little bit about what's driving that decision? She gave it. I think she gave it a long, hard look. And you know what I think What she thinks is a better race for her. Is the Senate race? Uh, now that that could be because she thinks Marco Rubio like being easier candidate than Santa's. I've got to say Not sure if that's true. I'm not saying either are easier, tough to beat. But it takes quite a bit of analysis and I don't think it was actually done, you know, polling and focus group wise on who's easier, tougher to beat. So I do think it's a fault of the war but get decision of where she wants to be. And one of the things that Demings people said to me and describing her thinking. Was that you know, While she really dislikes run two Santas, and she kind of loads the Senate Republican Caucus Maurin Washington on and says that they're you know they're obstruction. Their opposition. For instance, the covert relief bill only to then see a number of Republicans in Congress turn around and talk about all the great things in the code release till they voted against. That was just kind of one of those bridges too far for her and she decided, you know this would be best. You'd best not only for her On only for the party in the state. Also, the party kind of nationally because Val Demings does does have does generate a lot of grassroots enthusiasm and in the base. I have seen it. My Twitter feed, and I was surprised. By how much folks on the left for cheering this on, but they know her. They like her. Now can she win? Well? Democratic Party's gonna have to do way more in sort of the fieldwork aspect of what a party should be doing, and they're not that is registering voters organizing, staying in touch with them that that seems to have just kind of disappeared in the post Obama era. And the election results are showed show why that's been folly for them. Any idea what this means for Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy, because accidents have reported last week that she was really looking at at running against Marco Rubio and now with about Demings entering that race, although she hasn't officially announced but certainly sounds like that's that's a short thing. What does that mean for Stephanie Murphy? Well, it means it's stepping Murphy's go states a really tough primary. If she decides to run, you know, the national Democrats are ah, little more behind or a lot more behind. Perhaps Demings, then they are Murphy. They Demings has better name I d. She? She's a dynamic public speaker s O. You know, she can raise the money. She can rile the base And you know if you're facing an opponent like that, and Stevie's biggest Florida when you don't have a lot of name I d that's problematic. This certainly opens the door. This decision and again I'm talking to Politico's mark, a poodle for Nikki Freed to enter the race for governor. We figured she was probably couldn't do that, anyway. With an upcoming announcement, perhaps is is early is too and first Charlie Crist is already in when it comes to that race. Could Stephanie Murphy shift attention to the race for governor? Yes, she could. I think the that sound you heard throughout Florida was Charlie Christian. Nikki Freed, exhaling like who doesn't gonna be running for governor? Right s? Oh, yeah. You know, merging into that Murphy gets to stay put. I mean, you know, this is gonna be similar to why Demings chose to run for the Senate race. It's just gonna be kind of a gut call, um You know, there's a kind of a more conventional wisdom among Democrats that bloody primaries are bad. I think that's that's probably not the case. Ah, lot of People start paying attention when there's competition when there are campaigns. And so that's probably something that Democratic party could need. So you know, perversely what might be bad for Stephanie Murphy of primary a spirited primary against her across town, Maybe rival Val Demings could be good for the party in that it would kind of generate that amount of attention, excitement and maybe even enthusiasm. But again if you don't register voters is Democrats. All of these discussions, you know, for the general election. You know, become rather hedged. That is, you know, you have to start hedging it toward the Republicans simply because of the way the state performs and how the voter rolls look. Definitely if all things are equal you without a doubt, I think, give the edge to Republicans in the state. One of the question on this one, right? It's a It's a mid term of a democratic president. And usually you know, voters kind of tact the other way. Now, you know, it is folly to judge a Florida election before it happens Hell more than a year before. Election day. But this is just kind of the state of play as we see it now, So the caveat is, is that things can change. You know, the only constant is change and then final question for you When you talk to Democrats. Is there any concern that you've got Charlie Crist? He's exiting his seat. That is potentially a toss up race. You could have Stephanie Murphy looking to run for higher office. That's potentially a toss up race. You know, they don't have a lot of room to work with. If they want to hold onto the house E think you've hit the nail on the head pretty well. Is the those air pretty broad concerns..
Speaking of Bitcoin
I Cant Afford One Bitcoin! What Can I Do?
"Bitcoin is hot. Stop amidst this current bull market. We've seen a rush of new users who like most new users have no what's going on and one question of particular comes up a whole lot that i wanted to talk about today. What do i do if i can't afford one bitcoin. I'm adam levine and this is speaking of bit point. Today's always i'm joined by the other host of the show. Andreas 'em and operas. Hello stephanie murphy. I am jonathan mahan. Hey thanks to all the hosts into you listener for sitting on today's session. So i was talking to some people new to the cryptocurrency space last week and they were talking about what they were looking at making the first coins and they said that bitcoin just cost too much that it was too expensive that even if they agreed with all of the fundamental values the changes that will happen in the world. How bitcoin is a hedge for that and that bitcoin was going to. Let's say three x or five x in the next ten years and they saw that is real that they just didn't feel like transferring their wealth into something that they would never have one that they would never have one bitcoin that even if they spent a decade doing everything they could they would only ever have less than one bitcoin as a failure state as something that like emotionally. They couldn't get past. And i started thinking about myself when i was in college. I learning about bitcoin. And honestly i don't know if bitcoin had hit thirty or forty thousand dollars instead of dollar if i could have seen it as something that i wanted to get into just because of that mountain cliff of believing in something but then feeling like a failure. Because you don't even have quote unquote one of it. What do you guys think about that. What do you think people should be thinking about when it comes to that. I think that's an important psychological marker that people check in with when they're thinking about do i wanna buy this. How much does it cost to buy. One of this thing and i mean the real solution to that is to reframe. You're thinking there's other units to measure bitcoin in lots of wallets denominate their balances in mila. Bits now which is one thousandth of a bitcoin and you can change that in the settings and so you know if you could afford one million. Bitcoin would you by that. What about wants to toshi. The units are actually quite arbitrary. And it doesn't help that. The news and everything reports the price in terms of one bitcoin but that is also kind of helpful for a very long term perspective to see that it went from being worth nothing up to you know nearly fifty thousand dollars. There's other things that exhibit similar behavior for example. Some stocks have extremely high unit prices. And of course you can buy fractions of them berkshire. Hathaway is a famous example of that other things that have this kind of tendency. Are things like precious metals. You know you don't say well. I'm not gonna invest in gold because i can't afford a whole kilogram bar. Well yeah i mean. You can't but that doesn't mean that you can't get an airing. It's still gold is just a different value. And the unifies works both ways so for example instead of saying why can't afford a bitcoin but i can't afford a bit which is millions of a bitcoin. You can't afford a bit and that has a nice name. It's not merely bitcoin. Which kind of makes it sounds like a bitcoin with too many feet. That's a bad greek joke. It's not a unit that has no relationship you could also just measuring soto. She's because we all know of course are the standard as i keep getting reminded and you could choose any arbitrary unit but you can also go the other way right. You could redefined for example. Ten bitcoin as a chad hike. Very few people can really afford to buy a whole chad. But could i buy one tenth of a chat of bitcoin or desi chavez. I prefer to call it it. Oh all of these things are completely arbitrary and you can torment yourself on way or rejoice the out there in a completely arbitrary way and this is the key here arbitrary. It's not rational to focus. On any specific unit and we have a word for things that humans do the deviate from rationality or norm and those are called cognitive by and this particular thing is called unit bias. It's of well known cognitive bias and is studied in psychology from a number of different perspectives. It's not just the. I want to own one bitcoin. It's also the if you give me a twenty four ounce cup of soda. I'm going to drink the whole thing. Just because it comes in that size even though i may be only wanted half of it or if you create a heaping plate of french fries or if you give me a giant bag of doritos i'm gonna finish everything. Unit biases be studied a lot in terms of portions for eating. Because it actually one of the things that drives a number of eating disorders because it's a cognitive bias. It's a bug in your ability to think rationally about certain situations and that bug can lead to behavior that is against your own self interest and so this is a normal thing to have unit bias and sometimes says expresses itself in hilarious ways like for example to jonathan's example of people saying well. I can't buy a whole bitcoin. you get the opposite. Which is people who bought into dosage and are looking at it at six cents going. Yeah we can get it to a dollar dollar while allowing me to answer that watson dollar. What you don't understand dear sir is that there are one hundred twenty nine does and they are produced at a rate of what is it. One point four million a day and so to get does to a dollar. It's total market capitalization would have to reach a hundred and thirty five billion dollars or basically where a theorem walls last week. Now i don't know how you measure the utility of does and even if you think cerium is shit. Coin will not that bad

He won't name the people responsible. It's stunning to watch and I just don't get it because I'll give you example. There was a recent Article that we did our news radio W F L A news team did on DeMarco Rubio was in it and the comments on Facebook from listeners you're talking about, you know, far right Republican. Trump supporting listeners. They don't like Rubio. Democrats. Don't I don't know what his constituency is. Yeah, that's what I've always thought about with Rubio and the Santis. Is in a state that's narrow, like are still remains to be, um, I think you have to go back to the you know. What is it about? Look like without trump on it, And I think it goes back to you know Sanchez won by 30 something 1000 Scott. One by 11,002 bad candidates at the top of the ballot s. So what is the Santas and Rubio looked like I still think the Santis is strong. I think that the Florida GOP organization Is eight will protect him. Yeah, I don't know that they will be there for Rubio. I don't know any Rubio Republicans. That isn't to say that in a choice between Marco Rubio and Stephanie Murphy that the Republicans are going to vote for Rubio. I just don't know like Will he make it through the primary? Will somebody like Matt Gates Challenge him Well, and I think that that's part. I mean, I'll make the argument right now. I mean Rubio on the he has the most to lose of the senators on an impeachment vote, because if he does get there You know if it's if he votes to impeach Trump, you know Ivanka is going to get there. You know, Mac AIDS will get there. Mike Walz. Somebody will step up and run against Rubio that he was not Trump Republican or if he doesn't do that, if he doesn't impeach Val Demings or Stephanie Murphy, probably Val Demings. I feel more more like Val Demings may step out and run against Rubio. Um, can you imagine being a member of Congress having to have had to evacuate or shelter in place on Drew Bot didn't impeach that person. Using that just as a as a bludgeon to get at Ruby over the next few years. I think Rubio is really in a bad shape and remember, he's got to depend on Rick Scott. Do you know the relationship is not wonderful there for all that nrsc money I almost could see where you know Scott focuses on all the other states and Buddy Rubio is kind of left. Because think about it that takes care of your competition going 2024 if he does just enough Not more than that and covers his bases. Scott will, you know he'll be fine and lead of Rubio dangling in the wind and anybody you think Scott is incapable of that are calculating like that. Well, you don't know Rick Scott, because I think that makes that makes a lot of sense..

Hi, Jonathan Melhem Andreas Anson Opelousas. Hello. So today, we're going to be discussing a couple of topics. We'll kick things off with the technical topic. At least a little technical on recently launched for developers loop out for lightning. Then later will dip our toes into the latest fork of a four controversy with lawsuits delistings and other allegations long lots of drama to see if anything sticks thanks to all the hosts and listeners for sitting on discussion, so lightning all it's been a long time coming. I'm honestly getting a little bit excited about it at this point. Technology's always been really promising, but they're all these little details, which might be insignificant in the big picture. But which matter a lot for usability, especially usability for people like me and really for the usefulness of the system, which brings me to a new improvement enlightening called, Lou bowed.

Doug from their post on this in a section entitled loop out tale of lightning pizza one day, a new company launches that selling on the lightning network called backgammon's. And it turns out that they're selling lots of pizza, but over time the capacity of backgammon's channels, get filled with the bitcoin they've received on lightning at which point. They're able to accept more payments. Backgammon can then use lube out to move funds out of lightning into a bitcoin wallet, cold storage or currency Vianna exchange. This emptying of the channel allows them to then receive more payments and continue the cycle of selling pizza and looping out again further when a merchant like backgammon first joins the lighting network. They can use loop out to get initial receiving capacity as well as a result new recipients on the network, no longer need to rely on others to open a channel for them before they're able to start receiving payments. So capacity is kind of always been an issue within the lightning upright. It's been one of the big question marks is that unlike with bitcoin, you'd can't necessarily send your entire. Balance in a single transaction. You have to instead kind of utilize the network in order to route from hop to hop and each of those different hops might have different capacity limits. This is clearly trying to tackle that Andreas. Can you help us understand a little better? What's going on here? The fundamental issue to on the fan hair is not so much capacity. It's rather the lightning channels are a symmetric. Meaning that when you have a channel there is a local balance, a remote balanced, the local balances, the balance of Santos, you have on your side of the channel. And that's the amount that you can send out from that channel either when you're routing or making a payment yourself, and the remote balance is the balance that can be sent to Hugh that the other party holds on the channel that can be sent to you. And that's sets the limit on how much incoming payments who can have. Now, imagine you're running a store as in this example, and you have a bunch of incoming channels. With balance on the remote end, and you need that. So that people can send you payments or route payments to you, and let's say your stores successful. And so people make payments in some of that remote balance becomes local balance. Most to your side of the channel, which means you earned it great. So your local balances increase. In fact, keeps happening eventually you're going to run out of remote balance all of the channel capacity is going to be on your ends because you've already received all of it. Now, you have two options one is to have other people create new channels or close channels reopen channels. So the problem is rebalancing channel rebalancing is the idea and the way to solve that is effectively an atomic swap between on chain Anoff chain funds, which is called the submarine swab, and that type of swap is while loopholes or lupin implements salute belt is built on top of the technology that we were talking about a couple of weeks ago called submarine sense. And so this is another layer effect. Built on top of that framework. Yeah. So here's a simple example. I've got all of the balance on my end the channel, and I want to rebalance without closing opening channels incurring on chain payments. So what I do is I need to find someone who's willing to take a lightning payment for me. And in return, send me bitcoin, essentially swapping off chain payments for an on chain payments and wall lightning labs will to for you through this service loop out now, I could simply trust someone kind of like an exchange right where I make a deposit through lightning, and they then allow me to make a withdrawal on chain and making on blockchain withdrawal. But the problem without this trust, right? Because if I simply send them the lightning payments, and then they don't give me a non chain bitcoin payments in return. I've lost my money. It's their custody. We're talking about finding that person who's going to provide the other side of the payment is that something where loop out is a mechanism that we both us together to coordinate. The fact that we wanna trade but don't trust each other. Or when I used loop out at my actually using it with lightning, for example. Is there a company in the background that's gonna be providing the sort of liquidity via loop out? Yeah. So Luke out is a product offered by a single company that provides these trust less submarine. Swap. So you can swap on chain for off chain vice versa. It is an implementation of submarine swaps which is affected the protocol, which is a series of steps you take. If you want to trust la- swap between on chain off chain funds and that has been implemented in a product that's called loop out or lightning loop. So loop out of product by specific company that uses the protocol that is of marine sons and other people can use this same kind of concepts of Tomic swaps between. Chains and off chain funds to do the same thing of the trick. Here is that it's trust. Louis. What does that mean that means that instead of you blindly sending a payment over lightning in hoping they give you a non chain payments? In return. What happens is that is they may contain payments, which is effectively in escrow the can only be unlocked by the invoice receipts of lightning payments. Meaning once they've put that on chain, you can only claim
