"A pardon? He told me. But was this a first, the president was telling his top aides, they could commit perjury before the Senate Watergate committee, and count on a pardon. Politics and pardons on the next reveal. Saturday afternoon at one. On 90.1. From NPR and WBUR, I'm Scott Tong in Washington, D.C.. And I'm Tanya Moseley and Culver City, California. This is here and now. A fist bump, not a handshake, was how President Biden greeted Muhammad bil Salman today. He's the Saudi prince who U.S. intelligence says, ordered the 2018 murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal shark Khashoggi. Biden is under pressure to speak up about the murder. He also needs Saudi to help bring down fuel prices. And back home the president has other challenges. It may be game over for big pieces of his legislative agenda, notably climate change. So it's time now for our Friday round table. We have reclined ABC News political director hey Rick. Great to be with you. Thanks for having me. And Francesca chambers is with us. White House correspondent at USA Today. Francesca happy Friday. Thank you. Always a pleasure. And let's talk once again about Joe Manchin. This morning the critical centrist democratic senator said he's a no vote on an economic bill that includes spending on climate change proposals, Manchin is of course from a coal state, West Virginia. Here is this morning on West Virginia metro news radio. Inflation is absolutely killing many, many people. They can't buy gasoline. I have a hard time buying groceries. Everything they buy and consume for their daily lives is a hardship to them and can't we wait to make sure that we do nothing to add to that. Francesca for the president's agenda, we know the clock is ticking down to the midterms. How big a blow is this? Well, it's not just ticking down to the midterms, it's ticking down to an August recess that comes in about three weeks and Democrats have many things that they had hoped to get done during that time. Things that they thought would help with voters to get them out to the polls as you were asking about. And this was a major one. The White House now saying that they're not going to negotiate in public when asked about it today on the flight to Saudi Arabia, which is consistently been their position, but Manchin has been quite clear if inflation is high. He wouldn't vote for this and now this may be the final blow considering Democrats just won't have time to consider to continue negotiating with Manchin. Yeah. And Rick, let's just step back on this on this issue. Ron wyden, the liberal democratic senator from Oregon said, this was the last chance to prevent the most catastrophic and costly effects of climate change. I mean, could this issue fall off the table for years? Scientists, of course, say we need to address this yesterday. I think Democrats are likely to lose control of at least the house if not the house of the Senate. And in that sense, it's not going to be a front burner issue. But that's another way of looking at this. Is that Joe Manchin is being vilified right now for his role in this? And I think he deserves whatever degree of blame you assigned to it based on your beliefs on this. That said, what he is saying is not something that is foreign to the ears of many American workers out there who are struggling that would rather see an emphasis on energy production that gets at gas prices right now than climate change. And that are concerned about runaway inflation. And the idea that more spending right now is the solution is not something that's going to sell very widely. So I've been struck by there are some progressive Democrats who this week with the inflation report coming out and saying, this is unacceptable. We need to do something about this. They almost sounded like they were the party out of power rather than the party in power. And Joe Manchin, in one way, he feels like he is saving Democrats from themselves, particularly given the 9.1% inflation. That was the cause of his fresh concerns. He is signaled his position for some time now. Rick, really quickly, can you briefly share what is left in and out of this bill? Well, this takes out really anything you were going to do around climate change. What's left is potentially some areas to try to bring down drug prices, some potentially potentially some areas to address tax reform. But it's very minor, very narrow compared to the hundreds of billions that was initially proposed and that still was seen as a possibility. All year, the Democrats have spent two years now. Year and a half, trying to get Manchin and sinema on board. Manchin saying that he won't be on board for anything that increases inflation by additional spending, and also the climate provisions. It's a major blow to what's left of the Biden domestic agenda. Let's bring up another major topic for this week. Francesca, I want to ask you about abortion. In Congress Democrats are trying to protect abortion rights three weeks after we know the Supreme Court overturned roe V wade. But Republicans blocked a bill that would have helped persons cross state lines to get abortions. And they were slammed by democratic senator patty Murray. Let's listen. There is already legislation introduced in Missouri to ban abortion travel. Anyone telling

"I love wine. My dad introduced me to wine. When i was a kid and taught me how to use it responsibly and i still adore and the central part of my life but i also recognize that this plays a very negative role. Lots of others people's lives. And i see that sort of that sort of delicate relationship between a useful product that that makes life a lot of fun and a compulsive product that makes me feel bad about myself when i when i use twitter and i see in other people's lives when they overuse alcohol so i thought it was just really important to make the case that social media is like attention alcohol. Not because these things are all good or all bad but precisely because they can be so. Wonderful in the right doses. That is so easy to overuse them right. It'll be interesting to see governments which we regulate alcohol sales and consumption might think about social media use in the same way as well.

"From npr in wbz. I'm tanya moseley. I'm scott tong it's here now. General mark milley heroic treasonous somewhere in the middle. The country's highest ranking military leader twice called his chinese counterpart to pledge that the us would not attack china. The calls came at the end of the trump administration last october. And then this january. This was first reported in an upcoming book and then confirmed by. Millie and the pentagon milly reportedly feared that trump's actions in the waning days of his presidency could have provoked a military confrontation with china. Is critics include retired lieutenant. Colonel alexander vin men who said he crossed a line here. he is a newsweek's the daily break podcast. Even if he did what he did for the right reasons what he did was wrong and there an accountability with that. You can't just walk away from flirting with upending. Civil-military norms you know. Doing end runs around civilian control and walk away with their consequences. Okay let's bring in here announced national security analyst. Jim walsh to talk about all this. He's with the mit security studies program. I jim scott now. There's a furious political debate as you know over million what he did. How do you think about this and what it tells us about. Who's in charge. The top uniform military officer or the commander in chief. Well you're right to say that. The debate is sort of settled into millie as heroic defender. Add up moment of peril. I mean it's worth pointing out that. This was in the middle of the insurrection after all others saying he was insubordinate and crossed the line. And then other saying now no you guys have it all wrong. This was normal by the book stuff. All of us have been scheduled in advance and reviewed regular communication with a nuclear on country to prevent misperception miscalculation calculation and. That's a good thing and scott. I don't think you'll be surprised to hear the contrary view. And that is this all misses the point and deeply disturbing way the point is and it had been true for some time that many people appointed by mr trump came to fear that he might act rashly and cause or start a war even a nuclear war so these are his people officials and national security whom know him best and they're the ones who are the most worried now. We can have a debate over whether in fact lines were cost or they weren't and what the proper procedure is. But hey let's just pull back here and say the people who knew him best national security. We're worried he was going to start a nuclear war. And we're all sort of like well that boy that's crazy but hey what about those north korean. So i think we're missing. We're missing the flashing sign here. There's a problem and the problem is nuclear weapons and as far as flashing signs. There were of course to calls and as you say. One came january eighth two days after the insurrection at the capitol to the events of of that day speaker pelosi reportedly talking to me about trump's state of mind and millie talking to senior officers but nuclear decision. Making i mean. Is this one of those specific days. That goes exactly to what you're talking about. Yes i think so. I remember that day so well. It was a friday when pelosi announced that she had talked to million asked him about what had gone down. And then all the reporting that we've had this week. No one is talking about that so one one single day. January eighth politic calls milly worried about nuclear weapons. Milly reassures allegedly reassures china. That there'll be no surprise attack and on that same day. Millie convenience his senior officers to review the procedures for proper nuclear decision. Making now my supposed to believe that. That's all a big coincidence. Now people were generally genuinely scared about what trump might do. And that's because we have all these weapons. It was a flashing danger sign and we were sworn concerned about it but then we all moved on. I mean is there alternative alternative way to look at this and say these could be people at very high levels but they were overreacting to what was happening. I mean that could be but you know. Who should we be. If they're overreacting. It makes me wonder how we should be re. If they're the closest to the situation and the people who know the president the best and take nuclear weapons seriously. Most of us don't have time to think about that sort of thing. That's their job. And if they're freaking out about it then that tells me something very wrong is going on and if you remember scott and that whole run that last half year from september on there where people were being relieved of duty as was brought on. He was fired. He was on travel the whole month of september. Because he didn't want to have to deal with it. There were people who were temporarily acting positions. I mean the whole process decision. Making process was all broken down and then in the middle of this. You get the insurrection. Right and very quickly. I just want to come back to this debate very quickly on one hand there are those who say You know the military leaders can't take charge in a case like this and others who are absolute who say civilian control over these things. Is that in your view. A legitimate debate out there of how do things in some ways. Yes absolutely and i am not saying the military should take charge. I believe in democracy. And i believe in know strict rules for civil military relations I'm saying that the military was scared to death and that the problem here is not one person. It's not the problem. Is that an american president or general or any other single human being has the power to destroy everything on earth because they control nuclear weapons so the problem is not the person it's the one person has the ability to destroy everything. The problem is not the system. It's the nuclear weapon. Okay all right. Jim walsh here now. National security analyst at the mit security studies program. Jim thank you as always. thank you. Scott travel to the united kingdom. Just got a little easier. The british government announced it will stop requiring double vaccinated people to take pcr test before returning from many countries. Meanwhile the race is on to get the number of cases of covert nineteen down in the uk before we enter the winter months. That's when people typically spend more time indoors and in close proximity to others. Prime minister boris johnson earlier. This week praised how much vaccines have made a difference. And he wants to continue that. Momentum curved is still there. But i'm confident that we can keep going with our plan to turn jabs jab jabs into jobs jobs jobs and protect the gains that we've made together. I spoke earlier today with. Npr's london correspondent. Frank langfitt and asked him to explain. Boris johnson's plan to avoid a hard winter interesting. Tanya listening to that clip that is he wants to jab out of this. There's no question he's talking about..

"From npr and wbz. I'm scott tong. And i'm tanya moseley. This is here now. Right wing activists are expected to converge on our nation's capital for rally tomorrow and the department of homeland security is warning about the potential for violence and president biden in the thick of trying to convince moderates from his party to join him and finding money for the largest expansion in decades of the social safety net. Joining us for more. Is theo meier with the washington. Post and co author of the early two. Oh two newsletter. Hey theo donya. Thanks for having me. Thanks for being here. Well let's get right to biden's push for support. I hear. he is yesterday making his case to spend three point five trillion dollars on what he calls human infrastructure. I believe this is a moment of potentially great change. This is our moment to deal working people back into the economy theo. The president really needs every democrat to get this agenda through senators. Like joe manchin and kirsten cinema however are holdouts here. What are some of the compromises. The president might have to make an exchange for their votes while democrats are really entering a critical stretch. Here in trying to move there potentially three point five trillion dollar Reconciliation bill The president met one on one With both joe. Manchin democrat of west virginia and cinema democrat of arizona. This week and Talked about their sticking points Both of them are among the most moderate Or even conservative democrats in the senate and have raised real concerns about How much the bill would spend and how much it would potentially add to. The deficit mansion has raised concerns about raising taxes on corporations and others Necessary to help pay for the spending okay. So some of those are some of the issues that they have with this Human infrastructure plan and those are some of the compromises. The president might have to make who is going to bore the brunt of this who's taxes for instance are going to go up to pay for for this build back better plan. Democrats huddled all this week. What do what do we know at this point about this well. President biden has said he won't raise taxes on anyone who's making less than four hundred thousand dollars a year but depending on how exactly you define that That could be a difficult promised to keep house. Democrats this week for instance proposed raising taxes on cigarettes and cigars and creating new taxes on vaping as a way to help. Pay for this package White house press secretary. Jen psaki was asked about this this week and she said that she didn't think violated the white house's pledge not to raise taxes on people making less than four thousand thousand dollars a year even though most smokers are people who do make less than that amount and so i think the white house is really trying to parse how you know what You know could violate this pledge and And what would not well. There's a lot to watch for here with a little bit of time. That i have left with you. Let's talk about this justice for j six rally. Dc is bracing for violence nbc's. Disinformation reporter been collins. Actually talked to us yesterday and said that many right wing activists are are actually not going to attend. Tomorrow's rally in support of rioters arrested after january six. Because they think it's a setup for more arrests and and we know that president trump former president trump is is echoing. They're thinking saying in a statement that writers are being persecuted are republican lawmakers following his lead. On this you know. Congressional republicans really seem to be keeping their distance From this rally even congresswoman marjorie taylor green Republican of georgia who is among the You know furthest right and most provocative Republicans in the house has said that she is not going to attend the rally And senator lindsey graham told the new york times a couple of days ago That capital police officers need to take a firm line. And if anybody gets out of line they need to whack him. They need to back when we know that fencing now surrounds the capitol building and the supreme court So they'll be a lot to watch for What are you watching for. And what are you most concerned about. And i only have like about thirty seconds with you. Yeah there's definitely A mood of nervousness here in washington But i think it's at least possible that you know this rally will end up being you know less much less dramatic than the one on january six female mayor with the washington post. Thank you so much. thank you. California's agricultural products feel plates in wine. Glasses around the world but the industry has been hit hard by wildfires in recent years and to make things worse insurance companies are abandoning some of them putting a key part of the state's economy at risk cake. You daniel vinton reports the drive up spring mountain. winds through a burned out. Canyon at the top is a handful of wineries. During last year's fires some fared better some worse.

"From npr in wbz. Im tanya moseley. I'm scott tong. It's here now. California governor gavin newsom won a decisive victory yesterday against a recall effort. Here's his speech. Last night. humble and grateful to the millions and millions of californians that exercise their fundamental right to vote and express themselves so overwhelmingly by rejecting so much of the negativities. That's defined our politics in this country over the course of so many years newsome's main opponent conservative talk. Show host larry elder conceded defeat. Even though elder made baseless claims of voter fraud during the campaign for more we have scott shafer senior political editor at member station k. q. We got hey scott how are you. You're watching the votes poor in last night. The earlier poll suggested it might be really close potential dead heat and then knew someone hindley what happened well. A lot of people voted early. Scott in california. Everybody got a ballot About a month ago twenty. Two million ballots went out and we know that eight million or more voted by monday so election officials were able to process those ballots. Which they're not allowed to do some state some states. You can't even open the envelope until election day. So things got processed quickly and newsome suddenly eight twenty to twenty minutes after the polls close was out to a mo- more than two million vote margin. Lead you know. The recall was being decisively defeated and so it just really was clear. The democrats got out and voted and not enough republicans. Did now are still being tallied as we speak. I mean could this margin narrow could orca. bigger You know all the ballots that came in By mail or provisional ballots on tuesday. Those are going to start being counted today so and and as long as they were postmarked by yesterday. All those ballots will be counted all right. Now gavin newsom at a late hour in this campaign brought in a pretty big name joe biden to help him campaign was his team nervous. I don't think so. In some ways. The biden event was a victory lap. I mean it was very clear by then. Every poll showed the recall being handily defeated and so it was kind of a cherry on top. I don't think joe biden okay. Changed anybody's mind all right. Let's talk briefly about larryelder. The conservative leader in the polling. He's of course. A red candidate in a blue state poses abortion the minimum wage. The climate skeptic. What does this event tell us about him and his wing of the party. Well you know. He's overwhelmingly popular with republicans. Unfortunately there's only about twenty four percent of the electorate are republican so being popular with the base is not enough to win a state election in california. But larry elder likes the spotlight. Apparently and he says he. You know implies that he's running next year. Twenty twenty two when newsom is up for reelection so i don't think we've seen the end of them. Okay so outside of california. Is this a test case for anything. National politically we know larry elder is connected to stephen miller the immigration restriction est from the trump administration. Does this resonate outside of california. Yeah i think what one this for. Newsome was his handling of the pandemic. you know the mask. Mandates the vaccine distribution we have a high vaccine rate and a low infection rate one of the lowest in the country. And you he was running. Against larry elder and other republicans who promise that they would undo those mandates if they got elected and i think california voters overwhelmingly agreed with the governor in terms of his policies on on the pandemic and i think last night was a real endorsement of those policies. And a repudiation of going in the other direction all right and finally scott what is next for gavin newsom. He's got another year or so. He took a big hit for going mask list. Got a very fancy restaurant in california. I mean does he has patching up to do. What's on his list. You know. I think when you win by the kind of margin did yesterday by beating back This recall there's nothing to make up for the election's over the california's still has some very serious problems. We talked about the pandemic. Homelessness is a huge problem. The governor knows that the california legislature and the governor of invested billions of dollars. They've got a really start showing some results because people really are frustrated and they've had it with homelessness and obviously it's a human disaster as well for those who are on the streets. I think that's really what newsom legislature in addition to the pandemic will be focusing on now that this recall is over. One thing that may happen is some legislators democrats today are going to be releasing plans to reform the recall process and i think that there may be some appetite for that not just in the legislature but among voters i think a lot of people saw this as a tremendous waste of money three hundred million dollars and a luxury that the state can't afford not just financially but also as a distraction from so many serious problems that now have to be addressed all right scott shafer senior editor for politics and government desk. Thanks for taking the time. You're welcome major developments this week in the investigation of the assassination of haiti's former president giovanelli maurice the current prime minister. Reo enrique has fired the lead prosecutor in the case the prosecutor been ford. Claude had been seeking charges against honoree in connection with the july. killing of. moe's. Jacqueline charles has been covering these turn of events and joins us now to explain. She covers haiti for the miami herald. Jacqueline welcome back. Thanks for having me. These are stunning developments. Phone records appear to tie. Reo on read the current prime minister to the top suspect in the assassination of moe's can you tell us more about the prosecutor's allegations well. The prosecutor is alleging that there were two phone calls on the morning of july seventh between this key suspect and Ariella the current prime minister. But i have to tell you. The chief prosecutor has had in his hands for several weeks. Now and in those records. It doesn't say now the prosecutors claiming that there was seven minutes total in terms of the exchange between And this key suspect josephine jill but we are not provided with any details in terms of what they spoke about. Let me just say that. This key suspect by joe is not somebody who is unknown. He's had conversations with a number of people political actors so it would not be uncommon that he has had conversations with other individuals but we really do not know and the chief prosecutor who did this after he had been fired by. The prime minister did not provide any additional details on terms of why he thinks that the prime minister needed to be charged outside of two calls. Did he saw call log okay. This is why prime minister honoree says this indictment has no legal basis Does he have the authority though to to essentially step into a working investigation like this i spoke to a former investigative judge yesterday about this and he told me no that under the law in haiti their separation of functions and once an investigation like this has been transferred to an investigative judge which is the equivalent of a grand jury. A chief prosecutor cannot then pursue his own investigation or demand than immigration bar. A prime minister from traveling You know there are procedures that he needs to take and he is completely out of his jurisdiction even if he had not been fired to do what he did..

"From npr in wbz. I'm scott tong. And i'm tanya moseley. It's here now. Voters in california are answering two questions today. Should governor gavin newsom be removed from office. And if so who should take his place. Millions of californians have already cast their ballots in this closely watched recall election. it's a rare chance for republicans to seize control and a deep blue state cap. Radio's chris nichols has the latest chris. Welcome agreed to be here. Great to have you. There's this narrative tug of war so to speak on what this recall is actually about. Can you remind us why this particular recall. Effort picked up steam. Will this recall. Effort picked up steam. Probably because of newsome's strict coverted policies The supporters of the recall say that the governor went too far when it comes to mask mandates business closures during the pandemic. But i think it's also important to remember that this specific recall effort actually started before the pandemic so newsom has had certainly opponents. Republicans don't agree with his policies across the board not just as cova restrictions right. Republicans say it's about the issues and how newsom has governed the state democrats say it's an attempt by republicans to actually take over the state of california. You've been talking to voters. What are you hearing about the basis of their vote. What is this recall. Really about for them i have. I spoke this morning with thirty nine year. Old woodland california resident justin smith. He says that the governor's handling of the pandemic really influenced his. Yes vote on the recall. I think we've seen the strictest lockdowns pretty much in the country My mom took her life in february a largely because of the anxiety caused by the lockdown measure. So i understand. That cove is a threat but I think we're completely ignoring the many consequences of these mitigation measures and smith added that another frustration was the closures of schools. The last school year. He has children in schools. He feels that the governor should have done more to keep schools open in california. We know that turnout is typically low for special elections especially among democrats. What does the current turn out look like will as of late last week about one third of all ballots that had been issued in california and california issued mail ballots to all registered voters about one third had already been returned election. Experts predict that turn will actually be pretty good for the recall election. They're estimating somewhere in the fifty to fifty five percent In person voting the expectations are. That will get a pretty sizable turn out for the recall and polling actually shows that newsome is in the lead. His main opponent is is larry elder conservative and controversial. Talk show radio host. Who who biden compares to former president donald trump. What are some important things to know about elder for his campaign. He would like to see the end of mask. Mandates in california. He'd like to see the end of vaccine mandates as well those are probably his two biggest policies that he's put forward but really that would go against what a lot of the sort of strong democratic base Supports here in california so the question really becomes not whether elder will be the top candidate looks like he will but whether newsom will hang on and get fifty percent in the recall to retain his job. I want to ask you specifically about what the future more. Broadly looks like california politics. If newsom loses or wins but elder is already talking fraud he appealed to supporters to use an online form to report fraud and he says his team has already detected it and the results but that was yesterday before results were in. Is this his strategy. What can you tell us quickly about this. It does does appear to be his strategy. He along with of course former president donald trump Recently weighed in on the california. Recall when you speak with election officials and experts say there is no evidence to show any fraud the also note that elections in california just like across the country. They're decentralized run by local election officials and that it would be almost impossible to have them all secretly get together to rig an election given the decentralized nature of how elections are operated in california. Of course the bigger question that we're all waiting for and those are the results what the future could look like more immediately for california politics if and loses or or if he wins while i think if he loses and say larry elder is elected Certainly that you would see the end to these masks mandates you would see an into vaccine mandates for state workers for healthcare workers and then voters would have choice again a in one year to to see if they wanna keep the replacement candidate. That was cap. Radio's chris nichols thank you so much for this. Update thank you. There are new questions about the us. Military's final drone strike before leaving afghanistan. The pentagon call this attack on august. Twenty ninth a righteous strike against a man with suspected ties to the islamic state but investigations by several news outlets cast doubt on the official story including whether the victim had anything to do with isis yesterday on capitol hill. The secretary of state antony blinken was asked by representative johan omar if the strike mistakenly killed civilians that is looked at very very very carefully by others in the administration so that we understand exactly what happened or what didn't happen and no country on earth. No government takes more precautions to try to ensure that anyone other than the intended terrorist target is struck using a drone or vite by any other means. Matthew aitken's investigated this attack for the new york times. He joins us from kabul on skype. Line matthew welcome back. Thanks for having me okay. So here's what we know that seems to be undisputed zimeray. Amati was forty three years old. He worked for an american ngo and he relative at applied for refugee settlement. In the us. Can you start by telling us with. The pentagon says happened the us military had said they struck car a target. That was an isis facilitator and to prevent an imminent threat against the airport. Okay and how does that square with your reporting. Maybe first of all whether there's any connection in your reporting to isis or being at a nicest facility well it went to the site of the strike the day afterward and it had taken place in the courtyard of a house and i spoke to the family. Whose house was they were extremely grief-stricken. They told me they had just lost ten members their family including seven children. There was still human rains spattered around the courtyard and car had been struck but took photographs. The scene based on the expert analysis. There's no evidence that there was loss. Larger secondary blast as military has repeated the claim so that calls the question whether there could have been explosives in the car in the basin reporting that we did over the next two weeks. It seemed like this guy had a typical day at work at this. Ngo colleagues in his family said he was driving around to helping to deliver food to refugees. Basically so what. The military may have interpreted from the drone feed as suspicious was just a normal day. We got camera footage from the offices showed him filling up. Some water jugs to put in the trunk of his car and he was taken at home to his family because they had run out of water. That wasn't water deliveries after claps the government. So we didn't find any lincoln's so could this be one source of confusion here that the pentagon is saying that they thought he had some explosives in his vehicle in it actually was the water. It's possible they claim the base also secondary blast which doesn't seem to have been the case the following questions basically why they decided to take strike in a crowded residential neighborhood. You know whether it was going to be a high. Very high risk of casualties. In fact seven children were killed. So what was the imminent threat. Even was some connection. Isis ten casualties here. What what do you know about. How much visibility. Us drones have into this is..

"From npr and wb you are. I'm scott tong. And i'm tanya moseley. This is here. And now president biden had three words today for republicans intent on suing over his new vaccine mandate that would cover two thirds of american workers added and they probably will republican. Critics are calling the new rules which require businesses with over one workers to vaccinate or test their employees weekly unconstitutional and presidential overreach. nebraska governor. pete. Ricketts told fox news. He's looking at ways to push back. Just as this announcement came out the phones in my office were ringing off the hook with people who are just in shock about this and business owners are calling me telling me about how this is going to make it so hard for them to be able to run their businesses the amount of effort. Let's bring in our political roundtable eugene. Daniel's is white correspondent and playbook co author for political. How eugene guys doing great and chad pergram congressional correspondent for fox news chad. Thanks for having me. See if i can start with you. The president isn't just getting heat from conservatives which we will talk about some public health experts. Say that he actually should have done more such as required vaccines for airplane passengers. What's the president trying to thread the political needle period. Think no absolutely. I think something. That's really interesting is. We've been talking to health experts for months who've been wanting something like this for months from the biden administration and they'd held they have held off. They said they you know at times. They didn't feel like they had the legal justification for the legal power to do. So i'm i also think that politically it's one of those things that was going to be very popular in the backlash was going to be swift. But it's very clear that we the administration's got to a point as the president said yesterday is that their patients is just running thin with people who are unvaccinated and so all of the things that he outlined yesterday are set to make the. It's harder to live life in in operating society in america if you're unvaccinated i think it is the stick of the karen stick that we haven't seen so much this year. Yeah they're well. Our our patience is running thin. That part sounded like a lecture. A little bit. Chad a the president is surely knew he would get blowback over this from the right. He says he's willing to date controversial positions. How big a stand is this or a risk. Is this politically you. Think for the president. Well it's kind of something that the president had to do. He realizes that his presidency You know hinges on the success or failure of dealing with this pandemic and vis-a-vis the economy That's why some people said you know. look osha. is there to make a safe workplace. We were kind of surprised that he didn't get them more involved Long ago so that's one thing and the political blowback is natural on capitol hill especially from republicans therefore small government. They're not gonna like much of anything. The president has to start with but especially when it gets into this issue of government. Mandating things and i wanna come back to a term that we used to talk a lot about in the nineteen nineties unfunded mandates and when you Go that's what people are talking about that. You're making a business. Do something The argument of course could be made that. Maybe you're gonna make that business more successful because they'll have healthy employees and more people will be willing to come in and you know conduct commerce and so on and so forth but anytime republicans can portray democrats as big government. Mandates masks vaccine mandates. Anything they believe that is good politics with their base. Well let's listen to something that the president said last night. This is not about freedom for personal choice about protecting yourself and those around you. Ohio republican senate candidate. Jd vance is in buying that. It's what we're talking about now. He's calling for mass civil. Disobedience urging workers not to comply with the vaccine mandate udine are republicans managing to convert vaccine supporters into anti vaccine mandate voters. Think so at this rate in at this time in this pandemic it seems like we've kind of gotten to our corners right when it comes to you know the twenty five percent of americans who haven't even gotten one shot get. That is a group that is going to be difficult to convince to get that vaccine. That doesn't mean that they're all republicans. Right these are also some. I have some in my in my family. A black families south carolina who have not gone back so there are different pockets of an all over the country but what we know is that it is. This is people are very much. Have their minds made up about this. And that's why the administration is hoping that the private industry what did in announced yesterday. It's going to force people to want to get vaccinated because they're going to. They don't want to get fired for example where they don't want to continue to always have to tested and proof that they're they're they don't have cova. Nineteen so that aspect of it the political aspect of it who how people feel about it or are pretty much said right right. We're we're hearing from business. Groups like the business roundtable and the national association of manufacturers welcoming these new rules. But what are some of the unanswered questions about the the new rules today chad. What are some things that you're thinking about and some of the legal battles that might be out there. We you know something that some people here. On capitol hill flagged for me. They said you know. This doesn't apply to members of congress and their staffs you know is exempt from a lot of these things..

"Great every day and also those who listen from. Npr in wb you are. I'm tanya moseley. And i'm scott tong. It's here now. The threat from ida is not over. The storm could still dump up to eight inches of rain. On the northeast and meantime most of new orleans is still without power three days on and the lights could stay out for a long time. The impacts are more than just inconvenient. They can be life threatening especially for senior citizens who are on a fixed income and rely on power for medical devices and to keep cool in this hot muggy weather. Emily woodruff is a health reporter with the times. Pick a you. New orleans advocate newspaper. And she's been out visiting with people who are not able to evacuate before hurricane ida head and she joins us now. Welcome thank you. You recently visited a senior living facility in the seventh ward. What conditions like you know. It was kind of heartening to walk into it. I because they have this one outlet that that worked and they had all these hot plates on it and they were trying to cook. They're spoiling food. And then the circuit broke and they couldn't fix it and you know things. Just kind of deteriorated. Quickly there hot There were leaks. You know i saw blackwater come up through a first floor sink. And they're scared they feel alone. Can you tell us more about the people who live here. So the people who live in this one facility. It's independent living. I'm so it's not a nursing home. But a lot of them are medically fragile. They have you know hurt monitors or electric scooters breathing machines for people with asthma. And they're all over sixty two. Most of the people. I spoke with are in their seventies. So they're not people who who dr usually they're they're people who rely on public transportation or one man told me he could take his electric scooter all the way to his hospital if you needed to but without power. He can't do that. Several of the residents shared their stories with you. What did they tell you about their experiences over the last few days you shared with us that they're trying to make do with what they have but they still don't have a lot is they manage no power no resources right so i spoke with this one woman. Her name is doris la. She was standing outside when i walked up and she asked me if i was there to help. She asked me if i was. You know someone with an organization who might be able to give them something. And and i had to tell her. No but you know. She told me that they fell so abandoned. There was no staff you know it was really just residents. I later found out when their maintenance people who i think would normally be checking on them. His house was destroyed And he lives across the river so she just immediately shared with me like we don't have anything and they feel like no one is is looking out for them. Let's listen.

"From npr and wvu are. I'm robin young. And i'm tanya moseley. It's here now. President biden is back at the white house after his first foreign trip. Which included meeting with russian president vladimir putin the g. seven england and the nato summit in brussels and the war in afghanistan was a major topic biden repeated his pledge to end the war by september. Eleventh which is the twentieth anniversary of the terrorist attacks. Our troops are coming home. We agreed that our diplomatic economic humanitarian commitment to the afghan people and our support. For the afghan national defensive security forces will endure and that american withdrawal from afghanistan is now underway. Npr's tom bowman told us just yesterday. That all us troops could be home by mid july. Which is well ahead of schedule. Let's bring in former defense secretary. Chuck hagel for more and secretary hagel. Welcome back to the show. We actually haven't spoken to you. Since president biden announced his plan to end. The war is a good idea. It is a good idea. We've been there for twenty years. We've done a lot of good. But after twenty years i think we expect that the afghan government is strong enough independent enough. Do carry on without us. Now we're going to continue to support them diplomatically economically in every way. But we're not gonna continue the fight a war form. And i don't i don't think we should. There's no military resolution to this. It's going be decided by the people by the afghan people Diplomacy yes the military is part of it. But this can't continue to drag out. This is not two thousand and one. This is twenty years later. They're different threats. Certain to the united states in the world coming from all parts of the world so I think the reevaluation that president biden put into this is correct. I think is decision is correct secretary. You know the big worry though. Is that that this withdrawal will open the door wider to the taliban. They have not lived up to the peace agreement terms that they signed with the trump administration. Is this a concern for you. Well sure There are risks in every decision of president makes. And you've gotta decide where. America is going to place its resources. What are its priorities. And as i said after twenty years it would seem to me. And i think the american people would expect this to that win. Will the afghan government be strong enough to defend itself. I don't know what's going to happen there I suspect they'll be some compromise in how they a government. I don't know but there's risk and everything and i don't think you can as president be paralyzed by risks in going through a what. If what. if what. If scenario every day on every decision you gotta make a decision. I understand exactly what you're saying. It's been twenty years But do you have confidence that the the afghan government can stop the taliban at this stage from taking control of the whole country. They already control much of the rule areas. Yes well the taliban very strong but let's evaluate that. Why are they strong. Well obviously a lot of people in afghanistan or them now. They have brutal tactics intimidate but they couldn't be as strong as they currently are without the people of afghanistan or stripling. A large portion of people have ghanistan supporting him and if the people are against government. I mean i served in vietnam. That's a good example of what can happen. The people turn against a government. And there's nothing united states can do you can drop or kinds of bombs. Spent twenty years in a lot of casualties on both sides. And we've taken a lot. Thousands of dead americans and wounded. And so again you gotta at some point come to a point as a leader in our national interest make a decision and it is uncertain but i think the decision for the right reasons been made. I wanna ask you about something something else secretary. It seems clear. Though that the focus is now turning away from the middle east and to china and russia do these two countries now pose in your view the the biggest national security threat to the us and broadly. How does the administration counter that threat. Well yes i think. They do represent the biggest threats to this country those two nations as any nations out there today. The answer the question that you just ask. How do you counter this. I think it's exactly what president biden has done this week. You start with your friends with your allies. With your partner strengthening alliances we have formed and built since world war two. You're much stronger as an alliance as a group of nations in dealing with adversaries democratically economically militarily intelligence. You're far far stronger. I think president biden is wise in strengthening those alliances especially before he met with president putin president xi in china china's watching this. That's the first step. The second step is to be very clear very direct. As a president biden. president putin's conversation was according to reports. You come at this from a position of strength not weakness but strength as president biden said you. You lay down rules of the road now. That doesn't mean that the other countries are gonna follow it. The main do necessarily trust the other countries. But i think you've got to clear the air you have to engage. You have to be direct. And i think that's that's where president biden is headed former defense secretary. Chuck hagel secretary. Thank you so much for speaking with us well. How hot is it in the western. Us phoenix is expecting..

"From npr in wbz. I'm tanya moseley. i'm robin young. It's here and now. President biden is in brussels for the nato summit. The second stop on his first foreign trip as president he spoke of the importance of nato at the military lines has headquarters in brussels. This morning nato is critically important for. Us interest there weren't we'd have to invent and here's frank. Langfitt has been our eyes and ears on this presidential trip. So frank you say the big story at this. Nato meeting will be the focus on china and russia seems to make sense but say more. Yeah so robin what's really interesting about nato is. It was built more than seventy years ago to deter the soviet union and since the collapse of communism nearly ninety s periodically. There's been a question about what its purposes now jens stoltenberg. He's the nato secretary-general he came out today. And said we're here to address global competition and everybody's on board and one of the things. He really focused on really for the first time. Robin was china and this is what he said. China's growing influence on In national policies presents challenges to alliance security we are concerned about china's coercive policies. China is rapidly expanding its nuclear arsenal. We all saw remained concerned about china's use of this information until eighteen months ago. If you were looking at nato major nato documents you actually have never seen. China mentioned it all and this is a real shift and it's clearly been pushed by president biden and the way that he sees the world as he says increasingly competition between autocracies china and russia and democracies like the united states. And the rest of nato doesn't seem to agree with this push by biden. They're more hesitant about this robin. I'll give an example of british. Prime minister boris johnson. He showed up in brussels. Today he was hosting the g. seven. Out in cornwall in southeast asia western england and he said you know nobody's looking for a new cold war here But also want to be able to negotiate with china on issues like climate change and arms control. And i think the other thing that's different is quarter from the remember is china's not the soviet union. It is deeply integrated in the world economy and so a lot of countries in europe. Want to continue to do business with china so it's a bit more of a dilemma for them. Yeah and just follow back for a second to the g seven meeting. The meeting of the wealthiest democracies did china was an issue. There it was and again. I would say this was a bit of a diplomatic win for president biden who is pushing china What we saw is a statement at the end calling out china for human rights violations. in john you know the far northwestern province of incarceration leaguers essentially repression of democracy in hong kong. And also this would really make china happy. The calling of an investigation for the origins of the coronavirus in china and back to nato this week at looming over this meeting for biden is one on one meeting with russian president vladimir putin on wednesday in geneva russia clearly an issue for nato countries. You know they're on russia's doorstep. How is nato dealing with the threat seeing that russia poses. You're absolutely right. And when one reads is important to the from european perspective china's very far away they've been chilling with russia or the soviet union for many many decades Thing that stoltenberg said is that actually he says relations now with russia the worst since the end of the cold war and he cited russian aggression in ukraine and georgia. And also obviously the poisonings. We had some years back your former russian spy in his daughter here in england. And what he's saying is they've been bolstering battlegroups in eastern europe spending a lot more money in general particularly since the annexation of crimea by russia in two thousand fourteen which frankly breathe life into nato that point in two thousand fourteen. Nato question wasn't entirely sure. Exactly what its purpose might be going forward and just briefly. What about afghanistan. The us pulling out this year the nato mission there dates back to the nine eleven attacks Nobody celebrating that today. Of course stoltenberg said that nato will continue to provide advice and financial support security forces They're working to make sure that they secure the international airport after nato leaves and of course there's a lot of concern. The taliban is growing stronger and stronger. Yeah and very briefly your sense of how different the vibe might be at the summit. Joe biden is president former. President trump disparaged the alliance night night and day. I mean you remember particularly the image to me. Was president trump actually pushing the prime minister of montenegro. Out of the way right today everybody so much more relaxed jovial and seems like all the nato member leaders were. Just exhaling go. I embarrassed frank. Langfitt with nato leaders. Thank you so much great to talk. Grow well as way to that. Nato meeting president biden also spoke with the new prime minister of another. us ally. israel. Naftali bennett leads the block of political rivals. That ousted benjamin netanyahu from power over the weekend but netanyahu did not go quietly. His supporters on sunday interrupted minutes interrogration speech. Let's listen.

"From npr in wbz. Are i'm tanya moseley. And i'm peter o'dowd this is here now. The world's largest meat processor says it is coming back online today after it was hit by a cyber attack over the weekend. J. b. s. is based in brazil. But the hack targeted. The company's operations in australia canada and the united states according to one estimate going off line even for one day can us beef processing by a quarter white house. Says this is a ransomware attack. Russians are suspected. And if that sounds familiar it is the ransomware attack on the colonial pipeline happened less than a month ago. King is director of the science and technology innovation. Program at the wilson center meg. Welcome thank you and what do we know about what has happened so far. Jbs so the time line goes a little bit like this on sunday in the middle of a holiday weekend in the us which is typical for these groups They know to target us when we're not looking or we'd like to not be looking a major meat producer in the us that was as you mentioned part of an international conglomerate Reported that and discover that a cyber attack was being carried out on some of its servers the department of homeland security has said that it was alerted on monday and started providing technical assistance and the white house. As you mentioned has also confirmed that this was a ransomware attack yesterday so we know that there is a disruption and that the company has said that they have backup servers so that they have data. they can hopefully recover. But the problem here is not that it's just decryption of data and resuming services. It's that there's a risk here that data might be either hijacked or public if ransom demands aren't met So if you're a lay person just sort of casually paying attention to the news. This is starting to sound familiar. There's a trend here right. I mean have you been able to quantify or figure out just how common attacks like these are becoming sadly yes and the food processing industry is a big and soft target so there are new reports coming out that last year somewhere in the range of forty ransomware attacks were carried out against food processors and so This is really a business until we break that business model until we make it so that either companies are able to resume processes and have their data secure without having to pay the ransom or we find other ways to provide support funds to victims. Who pay ransoms. Or if we address the the crypto currencies that are used to make the payments possible unless we ask countries like russia to crack down on those who are carrying out these attacks within their borders. Then this is just going to go on. We've covered a tax on hospitals. That are with covid patients. There's been a tax on schools. Of course an important fuel pipeline. Now this food supplier our critical infrastructure like that more likely to be targeted than say just a random business down the street. These criminal groups are clever. They know who has money who is able to pay who can't afford not to pay to resume services that people need like food processing. I think that if they have a lot of money a particular critical infrastructure provider like this food processors make billions of dollars then they probably will continue to be attacked unless there are other measures that are put in place to prevent this. The biden administration waited a few days to respond to the colonial pipeline attack. But it seems to be kind of jumping right into the fray here with this one. What do you think the right way to respond is well. They had to the timing of a second attack. Basically within the same month that americans feel physically both through fuel and food had to have a. Us response is strong. Us response they are. We have taken the lead in investigating this around the world. Australia has acknowledged that there is also very important. Summit coming up between president biden and vladimir putin and i am quite sure that this will be part of the conversation. But what can we really do aside from just sort of puffer chest up a little bit you know. Because if companies are victim of one of these attacks like they don't have a lot of choice do they. They either pay the ransom or else suffer the consequences. Well i think you have to take a couple of steps back there. Preventative measures to take. We don't know exactly how the ransomware was able to penetrate the system. Originally a jbs. What kind of vulnerabilities weren't patched. We talk about security software patches what Parts of the network were not even identified. I mean this is part of the problem with critical infrastructure providers. They don't even know because of how these networks and built what's on their system necessarily or or how far their system extends in the meat processing field apparently they use these supervisory control and data systems that help with processing it similar kind of tool. That's used in energy as we saw in the colonial pipeline so you need to have strong awareness of what's on your network and how to secure it from the first place and the government is working on that with a number of providers the problem is scale and getting to all those providers. The second thing you can do is. There are a lot of private sector companies who have sought out cybersecurity insurance and this is both a positive and a negative in the positive. Some companies have protection so that if they have to pay a ransom they will be reimbursed. The problem is because ransoms are getting so expensive. Some companies are now stepping back from providing cyber insurance so asa has just released a statement saying that they won't repay french companies for ransom and so that's kind of sad chain of events. Moog king is director of the science and technology innovation program at the wilson center. Thank you thank you and now. Let's go to michigan. Where just a month ago we were sharing the story of the state experiencing the worst spreads of covert nineteen in the country more than two thousand five hundred new cases in forty two deaths in a single day. Well today. we're sharing another story. Cases are plummeting and the state is experiencing its first full day of a partial reopening. No more restaurant curfews concerts and other outdoor events can now go on as usual and people can actually meet each other indoors at fifty percent capacity. How did michigan get here. Let's bring in dr abdul el-sayed. He's a michigan epidemiologist and detroit's former health director. And dr welcome back. The last time we spoke michigan was in dire straits cases. Surging hospitals at capacity. How your state turn this around tania. Thank you so much for having me and it really is a great day. There was a push to tie reopening to vaccine writes in matt wimmer administration called the my vacs to normal plan. And what this did is it. Conditioned what michiganders' could do and what a public facing institutions could do based on how much vaccination coverage We've had and thankfully michiganders' i think answered the call. They decided that getting that vaccine was worth being able to go. Fill up the ballpark. Were enjoy time at a restaurant past eleven pm so michigan has got vaccinated and you know all it shows us. Is that vaccines work. And when our public policy compliments vaccines and reinforces the need and the possibility a vaccination for getting past this pandemic. That good things can happen in. So i'm really grateful that they're happening here in michigan okay. Let's talk a little bit more about the reopenings. Michigan is taking a phased approach. We mentioned some of the facets of this first phase which started yesterday but we noticed that the the mask mandate remains in place. So it's a. It's a cautious reopening. Tell us more about that. At and you say that you know michiganders' answered the call by getting vaccinated. But i can imagine the excitement of many residents. This is kind of return to some kind of new normal. That's right tonya. Will what we know is that per. The cdc guidelines people who are vaccinated can go into spaces indoor or outdoor without without having to wear a mask but for everyone else. A mask is still the most important thing you can do. Short of a vaccine to protect yourself from the.

"From NPR WBZ. I'm Robin Young. I'm Tanya Moseley. It's here now and right now. We go to Washington where house impeachment. Managers are formerly presenting articles rules of impeachment to the Senate. Today after which Chief Justice John Roberts will swear in all one hundred senators to act as jurors in the trial which is expected to begin next sues day but even as the impeachment trial approaches. There's a decision out today from a government watchdog agency that the White House broke the law in freezing. Hey to Ukraine. Last year president trump's decision to freeze that aid as we know is at the center of the impeachment proceedings. NPR political reporter. Tim Mack joins us now and Tim. Let's start with the impeachment procedures. There's been a lot of pomp and ceremony. We've also heard from Senator speaking today on the floor of the with the vote of the. US Mexico Saco Canada Trade Agreement which has passed How have they weighed in on the impeachment so far well it's been pretty testy and one observation I would make is that? It's pretty evident that the Senate is kind of locked down mode. You know. There's a much higher police presence in the capital than usual ahead of these impeachment proceedings and that's led to much much more limited access by the press two senators and asking them what their feelings are. What their views are as this impeachment? Trial start so what are the major ways that congressional reporters like myself do. Dr Work is to Walk and talk with senators that they come to and from votes and that access has been limited so one of the big takeaways for me this morning and this afternoon is is is kind of how we have had a much more restricted ability to talk and ask senators to weigh in on impeachment and to get their unfiltered views on how this is all coming along Okay as I mentioned a chief justice John Roberts will swear in senators jurors. Today the oath he reads asked senators to quote do impartial harshly justice according to the Constitution and laws many Republicans and Democrats have already said which way they vote on impeachment. I mean that seems to directly Be In conflict with this oath right. Well senators are technically not even allowed to speak during the trial itself right so as jurors they are asked to sit in the Senate Chamber without asking verbal questions or making any comments and of course as you may know that it's very unusual for senators But they can't speak to the press outside the Chamber Knbr as you mentioned some have done. So Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell for example has said that he's working closely with the White House and defense counsel in this trial and Democrats Marquette's seized on this to say that this is an unfair trial already taking shape McConnell said though I in response that the impeachment process is outlined in the Constitution Futian And as it takes place always kind of been a political process with political players that lawmakers elected officials are the ones that That impeach and the the ones that are asked whether or not to convict yeah Let's let's go to this report that just came out this decision and the Government Accountability Office which is a non-partisan group that reports to Congress released a decision this morning determining that the White House broke the law and withholding aid to Ukraine. Here's house speaker. Nancy Pelosi at her press conference. This morning the O.. N. B. The White House the administration broke on saying that broke the wall. This reinforces again. The need for documents and eye witnesses in the Senate could this report put pressure on Mitch McConnell to allow AH witnesses in this trial right well. So this is a legal brief by this nonpartisan Group that does reports for Congress Chris and for Congressional oversight and so Democrats are certainly hoping that this report will put pressure on Republicans who have been on the fence on the issue. Witnesses Mrs There are a number of Republican senators. WHO said that they might be open to it after opening arguments in the trial perhaps in two weeks or so that they might be open to witnesses and this is just the latest kind of argument that Democrats are employing that there is this report saying that this issue at the core of the impeachment process us whether or not the president could pause this eight or withhold? This aid This is just new evidence for Democrats to use to increase that pressure so much to watch watch for today and the weeks to come thank you so much that's NPR political reporter. Tim Mack thank you well today. White House Press Secretary Stephanie. Grisham downplayed explosive new interviews from Rudy. Giuliani's associate left parties in which Parner said. He was part of a campaign to pressure Ukraine to investigate the Biden's and that it was laughable. I think it had anything to do with corruption. Grisham told The Washington Post. She wasn't too concerned and that the president has said he did not know Parnis but there are photos of them together together and pictures of Donald Trump with Robert Hide. The Republican candidate for Congress partners has documents he says show. Hi Discussing the physical location. Shen of the ambassador to Ukraine Ukraine has opened an investigation into whether she was being surveilled and Parnes told. MSNBC's Rachel maddow trump knew about Ukrainian pressure campaign. What do you think is the main inaccuracy or the main lie? That's being told that you feel like you can correct that.
