"Ted we're gonna take a thirty second break. We'll be right back On medicine we're still practicing. Join dr steven. Tae back and bill kurtis for real conversations with the medical professionals who have their finger on the pulse of healthcare in the modern world available on all your favorite pod casting platforms produced by media spoiler alert next week tips on how to avoid your own personal cyberattack with congressman ted lieu and jane albrecht. This one is interesting. The space infrastructure act. You actually are directing homeland security to designate a space system service and technology as a sector of critical infrastructure. Is that something brand new that you're bringing to the floor yes. This is bipartisan legislation. That i'm bringing introducing right now. There is about sixteen critical areas designated as critical infrastructure such as transportation such as energy however the space sector is not so designated even though with every passing day space becomes more and more important your banking transactions at the atm for example of rely on space satellites. Gps that you use to navigate around relies on space satellites. Communications with other countries relies on space satellites. And so you can imagine the problems. Hackers able to access these space satellites and control them for various reasons. And so we wanna make sure that we designate this space sector ask critical infrastructure so that we can devote more attention resources to protect space assets against being hacked or other intrusions. A lot of private companies are involved in satellites and other space endeavors so right now those private companies just sort of do what they want in terms of cyber security was not just space right now. Largely you're in the financial services industry every private company. Just does whatever they want in terms of cyber security and that is unfortunate because some of them do a bad job at as the colonial pipeline. Hack showed they weren't even doing something as basic as two factor authentication. I do have to say. Though that there is for example a cost two factor authentication. I remember when the military i implemented it it was annoying. It was time consuming. And i for example in the military for me to use my word processor. I can't just have a password. I need to have a separate physical. Id card stick it in a computer and have a separate pin in order for me to even use my word processor now. If i forgot. I d card. I was useless for the entire day. Or if i forgot that pin and so there is a cost of this but it's also much safer in terms of preventing the motive for being hat and i just think businesses need to take that simple step of going to two factor. Authentication have at least a second means of identifying you before you can enter the system beefing up. Our cybersecurity seems to be like supporting mom apple pie and the american way whereas opposition in the congress. Coming on this or do you think these kind of bills will happily pass through both the house and the senate with a sixty member. Senate filibuster. Proof senate so. I hope that we can get cybersecurity. Asian through this term there is a lot of pressing issues such as the pandemic right county back on track and so the biden harris ministrations whoa as the democratic leaders in the senate house correctly prioritize. Make sure we suppress the virus and making sure we get recounting back on track. So i'm very pleased to pass the american rescue plan. That is doing exactly that. And now. We're we're kind of american jobs plan but as now see these hacks do some serious harm to americans i do think cybersecurity legislation will start to rise to the top in terms of priority. When does something changed from hacking and ransomware to an act of cyberwarfare. That is a great question. And i'm not sure anyone knows the answer So i have asset very exact question a few years ago of the administration. They know how to answer that. I think it's a very gray area. It's very clear and it's something we're going to look into more. But it is a very nebulous area. Part of it is also because it's oftentimes difficult to know exactly who did hack. We can be sorta sure for example that it was done by a criminal hacker not affiliated with a foreign state actor. But we tally issue or we might be mostly confident that it was a foreign state actor but it could just be a criminal hacker and so oftentimes. That's hard to identify exactly. Who did the hack. Putin denies it. All to what. Greek in our intelligence services be sure. These things came from russia. Or in the case of solar winds russian entities that are controlled by the state based on public reporting our intelligence agencies. Have high confidence that russia. Its military arm. A has in fact been hacking america for years and years and years. In addition you've got criminal hacking organizations in russia. They're also hacking american businesses and the american government. I think it's a little less clear. Exactly what. Their relationship is to government of russia and of course in england queen elizabeth the first pirates did their bidding. So it's not unusual for states to encourage piracy of all sorts. I am certain. Russia in terms of their government. Now they are through. That america is getting all these hacks criminal hackers. There's also that to consider ted. I'd like to talk a little about what's going on with this concept of kind of borderless war it. If you look back into the late sixties and early seventies when we were fighting in vietnam one of the things we found out even as a defense military superpower is fighting a guerrilla war was not in our dna. We really weren't great at it. This is kind of like the ultimate guerrilla war right. It has no borders. We never know where the hackers really are. Who is subsidizing them. Are they state-sponsored or lone wolves. The seems like we need to rethink how we fight such a war. What are your thoughts on that. That's a great question. It's not even just that. The hackers are assumed to be one step ahead of the public sector private sector in america. It's also that a lot of this again is just human beings taking actions that you don't want them to take and so if you've got for example over thirty thousand people working at the fbi it just takes one of them that has access to the system to make a mistake. Click on a link. They shouldn't have and you could have a cybersecurity problem or consider for example the nsa probably one of the most secretive organizations on earth. They probably have some of the highest technology in terms of protecting their systems. And we know a lot about an essay. Why because edward snowden rocked out. Nsa with a whole bunch of nsa secrets a so you've got to really rethink From a lot of different angles and it is an incredibly difficult problem and in twentieth century. It's just a problem that's going to continue to grow and grow. Which is why. I think we need to get many more people retrained cybersecurity professionals when you devote more funding to our government agencies to do cybersecurity and then we need to get the private sector to take cybersecurity seriously than they're taking at now. Tell me if. I understand this correctly when you bring up. Nsa weren't some of their own hacking tools actually stolen and then used against us. That is what the public reporting stated. Yes i don't understand. Can you explain that to me. So paul reporting alleged that hackers got access.

"Pin number attached at the colonial pipeline. You just need a password. Newer in assistant and so that itself showed how lacking in cybersecurity that the company had so we just need to have a lot more companies upgrade their cybersecurity defences as well as the cybersecurity practices. And of course in the pipeline. Issue it really kind of demonstrates our kind of domino effect right. 'cause it turns out they shut down the oil not because of the hack but because they wouldn't have a way to charge people for the oil because the hack shut their computer system down a correct. I don't know all the details but it's very clear that if you have a business that either has a service. That's very critical such as a hospital or a lot of records that they can lock up or it's related to critical infrastructure. Then anytime a hacker goes in and messes up your system. Keep going to be hard and you're gonna be in the situation where either you pay the ransom or a lot of people get harmed so there's been hospitals for example that have paid ransoms because patients lives ron completely with you on that. But let's take a hospital for a minute. If a hospital gets hacked. They're not going to shut off my oxygen. They're going to have other problems. They may not be able to dispense medicines. Or what have you. Because they won't have good records but they're not gonna shut off a critical infrastructure. Shouldn't we as a country kind of heavy strategy and a plan for such a thing as the pipeline. Where you don't actually shut off your community if it's not directly attached to a computer system. You really shouldn't care whether or not you're properly billing for the oil that you send ted to what degree can the. Us government mandate that things happened in the private sector we curvy could so one reason financial institutions are much better would cybersecurity is because we mandate it. We've literally passed laws. And there's a number of regulations telling fans do since how to better protect their data. We could do that to other industries. We really just haven't but as these hacks continue to increase it may be worth looking at what other industries we should pass laws and regulations because clearly it's something that keeps occurring and these businesses apparently are not learning to protect themselves better. What kind of things can government mandate a wicked simply mandate certain standards that they must meet in terms of cybersecurity. We've managed that they actually just get cybersecurity in the first place. I'd you'll be shocked. There's still businesses that don't have any cybersecurity. There's all sorts of things we could mandate one of the things that we heard in our first two episodes of our hacked series. Here is that one of the most vulnerable areas is microsoft and just e mail alone is creating a wide open door to people who wanna hack companies. Shouldn't we be more involved in something that prolific as a microsoft if they are creating open doors to hackers was. I think there's two things going up. One is emails and fishing and those sorts of attacks. Another are the operating systems that for example microsoft has or apple has and so on and the reason that you get out these software updates all the time is because these companies realized that they have boehner and trying to patch these vulnerabilities and update. Their software may be that at some point in time. Microsoft is particularly week though. Fix it and then another day. It'll be apple weakness that someone discovers it sort of depends on what point in time you talking about and i think companies are trying. Hard to fix the vulnerabilities in their system. But it's difficult because hackers are very very smart people and when they find vulnerabilities are going to explain them but when companies realize it then they will send out these patches and one of the best things that people can do is make sure that they upgrade software in our the patches when these companies tell you to do so when you use the term vulnerabilities ted. You remind me of a recent that you were integral in presenting. I think it was called. Vp's or vulnerability disclosure policies. Can you talk to us a little bit about that. Sure this has to do with intelligence agencies knowing about these vulnerabilities and then basically exploiting them without telling the company. So i have two bills on this. One basically tells aren't tolerance agencies. Look you've got to come up with some process determine which vulnerabilities you should actually tell the company because a lot of people could be harmed if that ability is exploited by a hacker. And for those that you think are so critical that helps american national security. We get that you might want to keep that to yourself but you need to have some sort of process that congress american people can have confidence in so that if it is in fact a vulnerability that could affect a lot of people and could harm a lot of people that you tell the company so they can fix it. Another issue related to vulnerabilities has to deal with government contractors. If you're dealing for example a with a third party. They don't have to disclose the vulnerabilities in their software so we have basically written legislation. That says no no. No if you're going to contract with the government you guy. Disclose any vulnerabilities in your software. So we can take a look at that and figure out if in fact we want to contract with you. Choosing ted isn't every organization government and private industry as only a strongest there. We could slink because employees if they click on the right email. The companies could have a problem. Yes so what happens in these attacks. Is you'll see two ways of intrusions. One is through technology but a very common way. Perhaps even more common is through. What's called social engineering. Are they simply get an employee to do something. They shouldn't and silver employees click on link. They shouldn't have in might then allow a virus. Entered the system over. Employees divulges information that they shouldn't. Ma allow hacker to enter the system so training employees is really important. I know that in the military. I'm still in the reserves and every year i have to go through an annual cybersecurity certification training and then every now and then they are fake phishing emails. Her sent to not members of steve will click on it. And then we'll be told who is a test cool sexually a good idea. Yes i can bet you that many private sector companies. Just don't do this right. You have to spend money security. You guys spend money training employees. You guys spend money hiring people to try to save your employees actually were in fact trained so this is a cost but as the cost of hacking increase on businesses. Perhaps you'll see businesses take cybersecurity more seriously than they do now absolutely ted. Did you have a good cut not to my knowledge. We'll.

"And so we're in a difficult place right now in terms of democracy and my hope. Is that the rational logical wing republican party guests more powerful and eventually overcomes folks like marge retailer. Green matt gaetz but right now There clearly Losing to the radicals and crazies in the gop. And we're really watching the radicalization of ogm party in real time Yeah that's what i was gonna say. Look it really looks like it's going the other way. The as you said the crazies are taking over. And i. I grew up in dc. I grew up in a political family in. Dc and there was a lot. This is a while ago this before. A lot of the representatives families started staying in their districts and we all went to school together and stuff. So how much cross pollinating like. What's what's your day. Look like in in dc. When you're on the hill do you. Everyone just in their isolated bubbles right now. How do you communicate what what's your day-to-day look like so. It is true that the senators and members of congress. Now don't stay in dc over the weekends or for long periods of time like they used to decades ago at the same time would really matter. If i was at social events where marjorie taylor green. She was crazy right. So i think at the margins it does affect relationships within congress but the core problem now is not because we don't see each other at a baseball game it's a really because you've got radical crazy people like matt gaetz and larger truly green and and other folks and that is in part due to the republican base If you look at recent polls they're not only disbelieving the evidence of their eyes and ears for example about the insurrection. They're holding literally two conflicting ideas in their own head so one poll shows at when a fifty percent. Republicans believe that insurrection was caused by violent left-wing protesters known as antifa who were trying to make trump look bad and on another poll shows when the half republicans believe that it was a peaceful demonstration. So you can't be both but yet they're able to hold his ideas and it really is going to level of crazy that i haven't seen before in politics in my lifetime so so when you when you see marjorie taylor green in the hallway. D do you talk to her do you. How does how does that. How does that even work..

"I don't understand why they wouldn't want to move forward with this. Truly bipartisan commission. That gives republicans and democrats equal sway over subpoena power and instead handed over to a house commission that would have full authority to call whoever they want by subpoena. It really boggles the mind. If you look at the benghazi for example at a faux subpoena power end democrats on the committee were unable to stop the issuance of subpoenas. This bipartisan commission. Bill as it's crafted. Republicans on the commission couldn't affect stopped issuing subpoenas subpoenas. So they're going to get a much stronger body to investigate if they don't have this bipartisan commission. And i really don't understand strategically what the republicans are actually thinking aside from uncovering the truth. Which is what. We all deserve to to know what happened. What do you hope will be the outcome After the investigation has been completed. That's a great question. Mariah one reason we did the second peach mint trial. Even though the president didn't have that many days left in office wasn't just a hold him accountable. It was to create a record in preserve what happened for the american people dec- now and for future generations. Thank goodness we did that. Because literally less than four months later you have. Republicans like andrew. Clyde saying that january six was quote a normal tourist visit or other republicans saying that it was quote peaceful patriots. So you already happy trying to tell us not to believe our eyes and ears this investigation january six whether it's bipartisan commission or a select committee is also going to have the very important row of preserving for history. What actually happened on jerry six. What led up to it and what the consequences were so that it's not only about holding people accountable but also telling future generations. This is what happened and how we can make sure it never happens again. What are you. What are you going to remember most about that day moving forward. I remember on january six. That a of all i started out normally but then about fifteen minutes. After the session started most of us would not on the floor because there was a pandemic. They didn't want most of us on the floor so we were in our offices. I heard this loud banging on the doors in my hallway and it got really quite loud until arrive at my door. And then we open the door and account police officer russia's and saying you need evacuating immediately. I think that's what i would remember Because it was so out of the blue. We didn't know what was happening. And when a capital police officer says that you you'd accurate immediately and we race down five flights of stairs to tunnels so we'd go to the next office building which they had secured if this new commission which i think is an assumption. That's pretty safe to make that speaker. Pelosi will within the house is created. I would imagine that some former impeachment managers who have already been digging into this material would like to be a part of that. Would you like to be a part of that as well i would. It's also up to the speaker so whatever she thinks is best for american for the caucus I would support shifting to one of the other things that you have on your plate.

"So my reason for hope is the vaccine rate in our country right now and And certainly i'm grateful for it. Seventy percent co vaccination rate in may may be in reach which is incredible by all measures are vaccination rate has far surpassed. What myself and many many other people thought it would be at this point. Probably including the biden administration themselves They have certainly surpassed their initial goals and keep raising that benchmark. But like i said at the beginning of the show being fully vaccinated. I was able to fly out and visit my parents and dc who i hadn't seen for a year and a half and They're older my dad's gonna be ninety in august and To be able to give them hugs actual hugs and and spend some time with them So meaningful my daughter is having a real graduation outside at the rose bowl Wow yeah yeah and You know my heart breaks for the kids last year. That didn't get to have that full graduation. But i'm grateful that we're able to cautiously return back to some of the things that we were doing before. I hope everyone if you haven't been vaccinated yet get your vaccines please If we can hit seventy by the summer incredible and then we can really be together and do some of the stuff that we missed doing last year. Really get back to normal. Yeah so that's my reason for hope. Now it's time for this week's to do list first thing tomorrow. June third tomorrow a swing left and the national democratic training committee is hosting a training on talking to voters. Remember that mariah remember when we talked to voters. I talked to voters every day. Everyone you meet his attention voter. That is so on message and also true. So thank you for that. Yeah so it's going to be a really great training. And i know it's short notice so we're going to have the link to sign up in our show. Page swing left dot org slash podcast. Sign up take part in this great training following the training They'll be some opportunities to put those skills into action. It's going to be focused especially on phone banking right now but sign up for that. That's your first thing to do. And why not jump right in get trained do it. Hone your skills gained some confidence power up for the work ahead. Yeah i need this training. Because i do talk to people about voting all the time. I don't talk like i don't. It's been a long time since. I've tried to do a persuasive conversation with a voter around a specific topic so i imagine i'm a little rusty. I feel i socially overall. I feel very rusty so so we were just talking about that. The other thing that we need people to do is help us built this. How we win community you can help people find us by of course telling them about how much you loved this podcast. But also by rating us and writing a review on the apple podcast.

But you were asking about what i've been doing. So it's admirable that you've been so focused on the biden administration.

"Was Ted Lieu. And now Jamie Raskin. The leaders centers in just a moment, My colleague Mr New Goose will return to show that we've established with overwhelming evidence that President Trump engaged in high crimes and misdemeanors. Before Mr Goose comes up, though I'd like to emphasize what should be a nun controversial point but is really key to understand. If we have proven to you the conduct that we've alleged in this article Then President Trump has indeed committed a high crime and misdemeanor under the Constitution. Excitement of insurrection under these circumstances is undoubtedly in the words of George Mason from the Constitutional Convention, a great in dangerous of fence against the republic. Indeed, it is hard to think of a greater or more dangerous a fence against the republic than this one. So to be very precise about this. I hope we all can agree today that if a president doesn't cite a violent insurrection Against the government. He can be impeached for it. I hope we all can agree that that is a constitutional crime. Another key point, while President Trump's lawyers maybe arguing otherwise. The question here is not Whether President Trump committed a crime under the federal Code, or D, C law or the law of any state impeachment does not result in criminal penalties. As we keep emphasizing no one spends a day in jail. There are not even criminal or civil fines. Centuries of history, not to mention the constitutional text structure in original intent on understanding. All confirmed the teaching. James Wilson, another framer, who wrote Impeachments and offenses. Come not within the sphere of ordinary jurisprudence. Simply put impeachment was created for purpose separate and distinct from criminal punishment. It was created to prevent and deter elected officials who swear an oath to represent America. But then commit dangerous offenses against our republic. That's a constitutional crime. And senators what greater offenses could one commit? Then to incite a violence, Erection insurrection. At our seat of government. During the peaceful transfer of power. Circumstances where violence is foreseeable were a crowd is poised for violence to provoke a mob of thousands to attack us with weapons and sticks and poles. Bludgeon and beat our law enforcement officers and tow deface these sacred walls and to trash the place and to do so while seeking to stop us. From fulfilling our own oats our own duties top, hold the Constitution by counting the votes from our free and fair elections and then to sit back and watch in delight. Insurrectionists attack US. Violating a sacred oath and engaging in a profound Daryl dereliction and desertion of duty. How can we assure that our commander in chief will protect, preserve and defend us in our constitution? If we don't hold the president accountable in a circumstance like this? What is impeachable conduct? If not this, I challenge you ought to think about it. If you think this is not impeachable, what is What would be President Trump's lawyers endorses breathtaking assertion that his conduct and inciting these events was totally appropriate. In the Senate acquits Donald Trump than any president could incite and provoke insurrectionary violence. Against us again. If you don't find this, a high crime and misdemeanor today you have set a new, terrible standard for presidential misconduct in the United States of America. The only real question here is the factual one. Did we prove that Donald Trump while President United States incited a violent insurrection against the government? Incitement, of course, is an inherently fact based in fact intensive judgment. Which is why we commend you all for your scrupulous attention to everything that took place. We believe that we have shown you overwhelming evidence in this case that would convince anyone using their common sense. That this was indeed incitement, meaning that Donald Trump's conduct encouraged violence. The violence was foreseeable and he acted willfully. The actions that encouraged violence. Mr Nagus will take you through that evidence again. Not the whole thing. We're almost done. We're almost done, but we don't want it to be said they never proved this or they never proved that. Because My magnificent team of managers has stayed up night after night after night through weeks to compile all of the factual evidence, and we have put it before you. We have put it before all of you in this public trial. Because We love our country. That much. Mr Nagus will show you that we've proven our case. That President Trump Committed this impeachable offense that we impeached him for on January 13th. And that you should convict him. And when he's finished, I will return and explain. Why it's dangerous for us to ignore this. Why you must convict And then we will rest, Mr. Going to hear again from impeachment manager Jonah Goose of Colorado. We just heard from lead manager Jamie Raskin and Mr Raskin indicated that the Prosecutions close to concluding its case. Mr President, distinguished centers. Good afternoon again. This is my colleague, lead manager Raskin mentioned. I know it's been a long few days and I want to say thank you that we're very grateful for your patients for your attention, and the attention that you have paid to every one of our managers is they have Presented our case. Is lead manager Raskin. Mentioned. I hope I trust we could all agree that if a president Incites violent insurrection against our government. If that's impeachable conduct. So what I'd like to do as we close our case. Is just walk you through. Why our evidence overwhelmingly establishes. President Trump Committed that offensive. It was you consider that question that question of whether the president incited insurrection. There are three questions that reasonably come to mind. Was violence, foreseeable Did he encourage violence? And did he act willfully? I'm going to show you. Why the answer to every one of those questions. Has to be, yes. First Let's start with foreseeability. Was it foreseeable that the violence would erupt on January 6th? If President Trump lit a spark. Was it predictable? The crowd at the Save America Rally was poised on a hair trigger for violence. That they would fight literally. Have provoked to do so. Course it was. When President Trump stood up to that podium on January 6th. He knew that many In that crowd were inflamed. And We're ready for violence. It was an explosive situation. And he knew it. We've shown you the evidence on this point, you've seen it. Images, videos, articles and the pattern. Which show that the violence on that terrible day was entirely foreseeable..

"That was Democrat Ted Lieu of California now return to show how extremists were emboldened by the insurrection. And this is Jamie Raskin again read impeachment manager. As he said, We're about to hear from representative Diana to get from Colorado. She was the first manager to begin the Democrats presentation. Today. She's walking up to the lectern now. Getting her notes ready and, of course, since there's a pandemic, taking off her masks masks before she begins speaking. The colleagues have showed you the overwhelming evidence of how President Trump's conduct assembled inside it and inflamed the mob. We showed how and why this attack this violence was not only foreseeable but preventable. We showed the president Trump knew his conduct could and would result in violence and that when the attack occurred, He did not fulfill his duty as commander in chief and defend us. Instead, he was delighted. Donald Trump incited a violent insurrection. And he failed to defend our nation, our capital, this Congress and our law enforcement from the attack. He incited. Now I want to turn to the impact. The long term harm of this conduct. My colleagues and I will walk through the breath and gravity of this harm. I'd like to start with the effect President Trump's conduct had on our domestic security. We saw firsthand how Donald Trump's conduct emboldened and escalated domestic violence, extremists. These folks are known in the law enforcement community as D. V. Es. He starts were and are made worse by President Trump's refusal to take accountability. And his refusal to forcibly denounce what has own FBI identified as some of the most dangerous elements of our country. Even as the attack was underway. He tweeted words of support to his violence supporters and then in the aftermath on January, 7th President Trump made it clear This was only the beginning. And to all of my wonderful supporters. I know you are disappointed, but I also want you to know that our incredible journey is only just beginning. And he was right. Unless we take action. The violence is only just beginning. In the aftermath of the attack. We saw a huge rise in threats to our from domestic violent extremists, including specific threats to the inauguration in D C and also to all 50 state capitals. Our intelligence agencies confirmed that in addition to the specific threats, President Trump's conduct emboldened the very save violent groups. Who initiated the attack. And sparked new violent coalitions. These groups believe that they're following his orders. They believe that their acts of insurrection and violence are patriotic. Violence is never patriotic, and it's never American. It's not the Democratic way, and it's not the Republican way. After the attack, the nation's top defense and law enforcement agencies reported an increase in credible threats to the inauguration from Donald Trump's supporters. On January 13th 2021 Joint Intelligence Bulletin issued by the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI and the National Counterterrorism Center found quote Since the 6th January event. Violent online rhetoric regarding the 20 January presidential inauguration has increased, with some calling for unspecified quote. Justice for the 6 January fatal shooting by law enforcement of a participant who had illegally entered the Capitol building and another posting. That quote many armed individuals would return on 19 January. Agencies also made clear why these threats were escalating, especially regarding the inauguration. The report explained that a primary motivating factor was quote. The shared false narrative of a stolen election and opposition to the change in control of the executive and legislative branches of the federal government. They lead some individuals to adopt the belief that there is no political solution to address that their grievances and that violent action is necessary. In other words, President Trump spreading of inflammatory disinformation about the election incited the insurrection on January 6th. And may lead to further violence. Online, Justus they did prior to the January 6 attack. Trump supporters took to the Internet to organize and document their desire and plans for future violence at President Biden's inauguration. And indeed, in the day shortly after the attack, several posters on extremist social media websites made further plans for violence. They posted quote. Many of us will return on January 1920 21 carrying our weapons in support of our nation's resolve to which the world will never forget. We will come in numbers, no standing Army or police agency can match. Quote. We took the building once and we can take it again. Other users eager to participate in additional attacks confirmed that they were waiting on President Trump's instructions about what to do next. Referring to a future planned attack. Ah, user on the online platform, known as gabbed posted quote. I'd like to come to this but want to know. Does our president want us there? Waiting instructions. In fact, in the days leading up to the inauguration, multiple individuals Attention many potentially an attempt to carry out the plots that I just previewed were arrested in Washington, D C, including on serious weapons charges. One of those men was coolly Griffin, the founder of Cowboys for Trump, who took part in the Capitol attack and was also arrested on January 17th. Here's what he said for him about his plans for violence. You know.

GOP senator: Trump 'committed impeachable offenses'
"Appears to be growing for a push to impeach President Trump again. In an interview today with Fox News, Republican Senator Pat Toomey said he believes President Trump has committed impeachable offenses tonight. We're gonna give you both sides of the story. California Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu says 180 lawmakers have co sponsor an article of impeachment drafted yesterday. He says House judiciary members will introduce the legislation on Monday. While some Republicans have called for the president's removal from office. Many GOP lawmakers are not expected to vote to impeach the president. Majority leader Mitch McConnell adjourn the Senate until at least January 19th, meaning it's highly unlikely that the Senate will take up the articles on the floor before President elect Biden's inauguration. According to our news nation research team. Impeachment could have major implications on the president's ability to run for office again if he chooses to do so in 2024. Article one Section three of the Constitution says If a president is impeached and convicted, the Senate can disqualify him or her from future office. However, it would come down to what happens in the Senate Senators have never convicted. Or removed as sitting president from office.

Congressional Democrats have raised concerns that amid a coronavirus pandemic that is expected to result in about twice as many Americans voting by mail as did. So in two thousand, sixteen cost cuts at the postal service could lead to missed delayed ballots. They have pointed to reductions in overtime restrictions on extra mail, transportation trips, and new mail sorting and delivery policies. This changes that threaten to slow mail delivery.

GonNa do you well. We're back Ted being that you're on the Foreign Relations Committee. Let's look at this as a as a more global question. What's going on right now with our national security our military our relationships internationally and our efforts around the world in places like Afghanistan. All of these were real problems. Only a couple of months ago and it seems like at least for the American people. They've taken a back seat. I had a conversation with the secretary of the Air Force last week. The military is implementing social distancing the same time they're executing their missions because this pandemic is affecting all the countries in the world. It's not clear to me that any particular country is trying to engage in war or trying to take advantage of other countries territorially because this pandemic has such life threatening potential for members of their own country it is difficult but the military is executing of its missions to the best of its capability is North Korea subject to Kovin. I've got this -ssume that Kona viruses and North Korea. We just don't know because they're such a closed society. We don't have very much data on what's happening there. But I find it hard to believe that would them being close to China and South Korea that they would have zero cases. We had a couple of PODCASTS. Not Too long ago talking about Afghanistan in the treaty signed with the Taliban and the Afghan government and since then we understand that the the Taliban is rate back to attacking the Afghans. Do we have a strategy there at this point so I was one of the few Democrats that spoke out in support of Donald Trump when he signed that agreement and when he said that we need to pour troops out of Afghanistan. I agree with them. It is also true that data agreement that United States sign with Taliban did start to go south pretty quickly so demonstration trying to salvage it. I hope they can. So we'll know more in the next few months new in your governor are both global thought leaders when it comes to preserving our environment. How do you see as doing right now? During the Cova crisis in focusing on that so in a short term environment has gotten a little bit of a boost with less air pollution less smog because of the shutdown of economic activity up once. They are the world's start up again. Then that's going to go away for a long-term we're GONNA need climate change legislation to make sure that our children and our grandchildren can have an earth. That is the same as we have a now. Not much worse. We know that other predictions of scientists from decades ago a with the effects of global warming. And what's going to happen or becoming true now and so we just need to work on passing climate change legislation as soon as possible. Then what would some of the most important legislations look like? I said I was CO author of AB thirty two California's landmark global warming Solutions Act. When he's I think that that law was successful is we didn't go out and say hey here is two thousand seven hundred fifty one things. We want you to do to mitigate global warming. Instead we set a goal we said we wanted to go to pre nineteen ninety levels of greenhouse gases by twenty twenty and then we gave an agency immense power to take us to that goal so the first bill I wrote at Alterman Congress Basically takes that approach makes a national it sets goals of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and then it gives their department of Energy and the EPA the power to take us to reach those goals as we bring this to a close. I'd like you to take a look at this from a slightly more theory level. But you know when you have a computer and it's not acting right. You can unplug the computer. You turn it off you restarted and magically. It seems to run a little better. Well you always want to look at the blessings even where the disasters lie. We have unplugged society. And we're going to plug it back in again. What are some of the changes that you'd like to see us make in society? That would make that reboot worthwhile. The I thought I have is. It is amazing to be the courage of American people. I have seen all these healthcare workers whether they're nurses or doctors or other healthcare professionals go into hospitals every day putting their lives at risk They know they get this virus. There is a certain percent that we're GONNA die or they're gonna get so sick day themselves hospitalized and yet they're working as hard as they can try to save others and I think that's something that we should Out Take Pride in and be grateful for these amazing healthcare professionals that are showing immense courage everyday just showing up to work and doing what they need to do to take care of others. And when we Reboot our economies again. I think we should try to work remotely a to extent possible because again that saves energy costs it saves transportation costs and as more and more people realize it can work remotely. I think that's actually being positive For Society and then we're just going to have to be more cautious of our interactions with people in terms of physical distancing because this doesn't just help with corona virus it also causes less cases of for example. The flu in any other disease is transmitted through person. To person contact. There actually would be some net benefits if we actually had better hygiene among people both in a home in in in public and I think that could actually just generally reduce disease rates and clearly it would be nice if we came back to a society. That was a little less partisan a little angry and actually as supportive as we've all seen many people being helping their neighbors shopping for neighbors and actually looking for ways that they can make the planet a better place i. That's a great point. The first two letters I wrote to the White House Corona Virus Task Force addressed to Mike Pence. The first two words in those two letters were thank you So I do think.

Thank you bill honored beyond your show with Adnan Jane so we always like to start with you. If you don't mind you just published a piece. In the bullwork people can check it out and Google. The Bulwark Cova. Nineteen the DITHERER chief. Tell us a bit about it. When ideal is I look back as a historian at times when presidents acted decisively and the three most famous presence in that respect our Washington Lincoln and FDR they all had crises they all pulled together expertise and they came to actions that energized the country and the question is what really is trump doing. Does he have a policy? He seems to move from one to another. It's so different. When Ronald Reagan took office in the middle of the worst inflation America had suffered during the century and made the decisions necessary to break the back of that inflation including laying off the only union that supported him the air traffic controllers. Okay well that being said Ted. How are you holding up in these Cova Times? So I'm on a lot of conference calls with other members of Congress as well Zun calls. Were working on a fourth piece of legislation to address this pandemic. We've already passed three by bar than laws to a jump. Start back seeing research to expand employment insurance to get stimulus checks out to Americans do get small business loans out two businesses. My personal belief is that the first emulates package called cares is too small and too short. We need to have a second one. That's what we're working on right now. Do you expect the structure of the stimulus to change the length of time that it covers the change so there are a number of parts of a lot. I think. Have to be corrected so the paycheck protection program has been great for many small businesses but there are a number of them that can't access this program. Because of various ways law's written things banks have been doing in terms of requiring a pre existing relationship or a pre existing loan. So we want to try to expand that program to allow for more small businesses to access it. I believe the stimulus checks were too small in to brief. I don't think a one time. Infusion of funds to American families is going to work because there's no evidence that this virus goes away in a few weeks. It looks like viruses. Be with us for the long term until there is a vaccine or drug therapy. So I believe we're going to have to provide recurring financial assistance to American families. So Congressman. I wonder if we could play a bit of a game here. And this is not a fair question. But congratulations for the sake of this podcast. You're now in charge so we would like to ask you how you will. Personally handle. Mapping our way out of this mess from here. That's a great question. It starts with testing and isolating the virus so we all want to reopen America as we can. We can't do that if we don't know where this virus is and the only way we will know that is we test people at scale a national basis and then if we trace who they've been in contact with a test positive so we can then test those people in a make sure we have every good picture of where the viruses and where we know the virus is not we start reopening those parts of America clearly. Our public health officials need better data. That data comes from testing. But I haven't been hearing much talk in the news conferences about getting testing out. Probably they keep talking about getting. The testing to people who are sick or to. Our healthcare providers are essential workers. Is anyone talking about getting testing out so that abroad portion of the population can be tested? Democrats are we see. The trump administration continue to give happy talk on testing the top five countries right now in terms of the number krona virus cases or the United States which leads the world probably by Spain Italy France and Germany so we have to dramatically scale up testing so that we can be testing everywhere so that we know where the virus is. Dr Fossey recently said we're not there yet. Were not that capacity an essential until we get there. We can't really reopen large parts of America. Because you can't be sending people back to work if the virus is still spreading where they work or in their neighbor. Is the government talking about funding all this testing in sending it out to the states or is it all going to be done privately? In the bipartisan laws. At Congress has passed. We've put in a significant amount of money for testing so it's up to the executive branch simply executed. It has not where we should be but it is increasing so the hope is that in next few weeks we can go to a place where we have a lot. More testing the president does have a habit of saying things at press conferences or doing things for show and then not following through so hopefully. We'll get there someday but clearly we're not there yet and we simply have to hold the ministrations feet to the fire is the goal in the legislation to essentially get every American tested. So you would wanNA test everyone who has symptoms or has been in contact with who has sometimes and then you will want to do some random testing to make sure that the virus is spreading among asymmetric carriers so we wanNA follow motto of South Korea where they do a very large amount of testing then able to suppress the virus. Relatively well congressman. I'd like to kind of separate the thought process here for just a minute leading the country through the process you want to do. Things like flattened the curve. You don't WanNA overwhelm the hospitals. You WanNA bring the economy back to life. You want to lose as few people as possible and preceded by leading us to a better Sunnier. Day got it now. Let's talk about our listeners. About whether or not they should feel comfortable going out to a theater or a restaurant or work or a train or plane and I'd like to know what your recommendation is to individuals rather than this is how we're going to govern our way through the process until there is a vaccine or drug therapy that works. You should absolutely not go anywhere near a six feet of a stranger. That means you should not go on a plane unless you absolutely happy you cannot go to movie theater unless this you absolutely have to go to a restaurant and sit next to someone unless you absolutely have to. You need to be social distancing maintaining six feet of separation. Because you don't know who may or may not be carrying this virus in this virus doesn't just have a kill rate. That's more than ten times. That of the flu about fifteen percent of people will get it get so sick. They have to go to the hospital. So you don't die. It can knock you out for weeks and weeks and weeks drive up your medical bills in a very traumatic experience. This is a very very bad virus and people just need to understand that you do not want to get it because if you do is a two percent chance that you will die. But if you don't die there's about fifty and twenty percent chance you're GONNA get so sick. Yuppie hospitalized of all the people that we've heard and all the people that we've listened to on press conferences on CNN or wherever watching the you're the first one to actually speak straight as an Arrow on what the situation is for us not for governance not for city hoods in statehoods and the country not for hospitals but for us and. I want to thank you for that because that means a lot. Is there anything that government can do to shorten the time between here and a vaccine? Some of this talk about reopening America. I think misses the mark because at the end of the day. It doesn't really matter what the President says or you governor says or even you mayor. If you don't feel safe you just not GonNa go to that restaurant. You'RE NOT GONNA fly. You're not going to go on a cruise.

But the way that you put it, it was meant seriously and other people tweeted, it, seriously and Bremmer rights. Well, this is objectively, a completely ludicrous, quote. But that's not what you did you quoted him, I mean, there's a difference when you use quotes. And then when you don't we know this, right? I mean, isn't this journalism in one one doesn't need to be explained to Mr. Bremmer how that works? He says he goes, it's a ludicrous, quote. But yet, it's totally plausible, especially on Twitter, where people automatically support whatever whatever political position they had, that's the point that you, you've clowned the, the lives to own Trump. Is that what you just said that doesn't make any sense? We got more on this and more on a bunch of other stuff.

"Nadler, they have absolutely not one single page has been given a total stonewalling of congress total stonewalling, the American people, and that is a an assertion of Toronto power of the present. And it cannot cannot be allowed to stand. The American people have to have a government responsive to them. You know, that's that's an outright lie Jerrold Nadler that not one page has been given. I mean, it's just. Can I here's a question that I have just thinking about this during the the the the break and just everything that we talk about you. We all saw Candice own in front of the House Judiciary committee absolutely blow away Jerrold Nadler for not even listening to what she was saying. An absolutely just destroying Ted lieu. And I really wonder you know, you, and I and many other many other Americans we actually know both sides of the issue, we sit there, and we argue we argue based on what the facts are. And I'm wondering, you know, because you want I constantly look at the left and say my God, this is just pure idiocy. I mean, what they're saying is flatly untrue. I believe there comes to a point when when you when you debate, but you debate the facts. I think it makes you a much better to bathe her. And I think that you have had just generations now of the left that actually don't does not wanna look at the actual truth of the issue. Everything is spin everything is lie. Everything is just particular cherry picking and their arguments. They can't even get involved in a debate like Candace, Owen, they just she blew them out of the water because Ted lieu just cherry picked a quote from her and Nadler wasn't even listening listening because they don't even listen to what the other side. They don't even know what the other side's argument is. So they don't even know when they look like fools. Yeah. No. That's a great point. It is it is that pure political drive coupled with the ignorance. You know? I mean, that's that's the problem. You mentioned with a AFC. Look if you're going to be a lawmaker if you're going to want to bring about change, maybe you'll learn some simple things like what a garbage disposal is. But I mean, you could you could extrapolate that out to how many of them have been on Capitol Hill. This is why we always tell our listeners don't say. I'm just a truck driver. I'm just a, you know, I I'm just a small business owner. I'm just know a toilet scrubber. Right. I'm just a toilet scrubber. Because what you're doing is. You're you're giving them way too much power. Now. A number of them are very smart. I don't think any of them are necessarily stupid. But there are way too many. That are ignorance.
The Mueller Report: Where do we go from here?
"The white has fully cooperated with a special counsel's investigation, providing unfettered access to campaign in White House documents directing senior aides to testify freely and asserting no privilege claims. And at the same time, the president took no act that in fact, deprive the special counsel of the documents and witnesses necessary to complete his investigation, again attorney general William bar today here to talk more about the release of the Muller report is California Democratic congressman Ted lieu and thank you so much for joining us. Thank you, Barbara. So I improved and let's start with attorney general bars press conference because I'm I'm betting you haven't combed through all four hundred forty eight pages of the report quite yet. Bill bars press conference was completely inappropriate. And he made a number of statements that when this leading the president effect did not cooperate heat. Did not agree to a sit down interview. He did not do follow up questions. So I don't know what Bill talking about when he said that the White House cooperated fully did not. And as far as what was inappropriate in your view. If you look at especially volume two of the report, Donald Sean Justice. If you read the instances look at the ashes, you talk they beat the elements of the statute in the law itself is very broad. You don't actually have to if at obstruct Justice. You just have to endeavor to obstruct Justice in Donald Trump's certainly did that let's talk about the reductions was there more or less material off-limits than you expect it it's our understanding that congress may be getting a report with less reductions, I'm not in. Hurry, clear on that. But we need to get the full report with no redemptions. That's what happened with the Ken store report. That's what happened in Watergate. And we are entitled to the full report without any redemptions. Well, House Judiciary chair Jerry Nadler's calling for Robert Mueller to come and testify before congress. So. What would that bring to light in in your view that the report hasn't? Well, first of all Bill testify before House Judiciary committee, a may second. And we would like to hear from Robert Mueller himself. We know that there are a lot of issues in this report regarding social Justice and intent we want to understand how he came to view of social Justice in terms of whether he indict the president because if you read this report, it looks like he came to allow us conclusions based on his view that he was not allowed to indict the sitting president. So and after that what he want to see happen. Basically Robert Mueller in volume of the report gave a roadmap to the House Judiciary committee to investigate Justice to locate. At least those ten instances to see if the president committed social Justice and investigation to exonerate Donald Trump or not, and then we're going to have a conversation with the American people how to proceed do you have any words today to the American people who who are? Reading this report. They're trying to parse the legal language. Sure. The Mola report absolutely, positively does not exonerate Donald Trump. That. That's it. It is a very large report. Oh. I I'm now going to go through what have you done to any of it yet? Yes. I I look through volume two, which is really the province of the House Judiciary committee because it deals with social Justice issues volume one dealing with Russia collusion. That's the province of their house intelligence committee. Okay. Well, thank you so much for this. I really appreciate you taking the time on this day. Sure. Anytime congressman Ted lieu, thanks so much again. Thank you. Now for a Republican perspective. Sean steel is a California national committee member for the Republican National Committee, and thank you so much for coming on the show. Thanks. It's fun. So what are your thoughts on congressman Ted lieu is response to the findings in the report? Definitely not a lot. Sad alcoholic. He's got a problem. Something about collusion. Still after and beaten to death by thirteen militant investigators by by by thirty million dollars and at the end of the two year process, no collusion whatsoever. Even some of the Democrats regaining realize that it made it a lot of Americans. It's such a hoax. It's so phony and Trump enjoys complete vindication across the board it, and so this is something that the Democrats still wanna litigate you thousand sixty losing ticket electing Trump right right in front of us. And I appreciate that. We have to acknowledge William bars facing charges of partisanship. And acting as the defence counsel for the president rather than as an impartial attorney general for the country. Nobody buys that. You know, he's he's he's offering or information is it wise special counsel. And he's got a color coded redaction based on laws at congress made. It's funny, but you got trumpeters irrational. And now they're trying to put all their. Attacks against against alerts going to wash it. Kind of kind of the joke of the week and you'll be a long forgotten person. And in. There is a little hard to hear you. Have you read the report yet? Oh, that's good. Ask you about the ten scenarios in this report. Whether they raise any concerns for you concerning possible, obstruction, no smoking, no smoking guns. We've heard the attorney general twice we've seen December. We seen the reactions to that. We heard people that have been studying this for intentionally but. Here at Ted lieu hit about collusion anymore. That was of course, the greatest joke of all time was real collusion between Hillary Clinton's campaign and Russian Steele dossier, and that's not going to be litigated in this conversation again, but I'd like for your last. What are you? What's your reaction to the question of whether Robert Mueller should testify before congress? Perfectly fine. I I don't think the Democrats will ever be satisfied keep going after that registering. But here's the good news. Hunters are now to be hunted and the attorney general at the the investigative general inspector general Maura which is gonna release report showing that James Komi members of the CIA top echelon, especially top FBI levels, Joseph deeply corrupted and doing having a deal bomb administration spy on literally better being used. Now. It's fine. A political libel is unparalleled in American history. That's going to be the story next to a year.
"ted lieu" Discussed on KSFO-AM
"Patriarchy and injustice read. Radio. Covers everything they're pretty much. He's Eric Harley. I'm Gary McNamara high. All right. Let's get right to it. I want to play this from the House Judiciary committee hearing on hate online and white nationalism online. And this is after Candice Owen made her opening remarks and then Ted lieu plays just a thirty second. Recording of what he says is the statement that she made about Adolf Hitler that appeared to be complementary. All right. Okay. All right. So here we go on this in congressional hearings. The minority party gets a select it's own witnesses. And of all the people that Republicans could have selected they pick Candice Owens. I don't know miss Owens. I'm not gonna characterize her. I'm gonna let her own words talking. I'm gonna play for you, the first thirty seconds of a statement you made about. Adolf hitler? Plenty from cellphone. I actually don't have any problems at all of the work nationalism. I think that it gets a definition gets poisoned by lead us. It actually won't globalism Vogel is is what I what I don't want. So when you think about whatever we say nationals in the first people think about in LA in America's Hitler, you know, he was a national socialist. But if Hitler just wanted to make Germany Great and have things run. Well, okay bottom is he wanted. He had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize what everybody German, everybody Germano. So my first question is to miss her Chenoweth. This Owens said quote, if they're just wanted to make Germany, Great and a half things run. Well, okay, fine. The problem is that he wanted he dreams outside of Germany. So when people try to legitimise Adolf Hitler does that feed into white nationalist ideology? It does Mr. Lou, I know that miss Owens distanced herself from those comments later, but we express great concern over the original comments. Right. Thank you, miss Owen. I'm sorry. We started recording. Would you like time to respond to that? Yes. I think it's pretty apparent that? Mr Liu believes that black people are stupid and will not pursue the full clip in its entirety. He purposely, presented an extract mixed. Suspend for moment. It is not proper to refer disparagingly or to a member of the committee. The witness will not do that. Again. We're just may continue. Sure. Even though I was called despicable. This may not refer to a member of the committee stupid. I didn't stupid. That's what I said. That's not what I said at all. Didn't listen to what I said. Continue. As I said, he is assuming that black people will not go pursue the full to our clip, and he purposefully extracted he cut off, and you didn't hear the question that was asked of me he's trying to present. As if I was watching it offensive Hitler in Germany, when in fact, the question that was asked of me was returning to whether or not I believe that Hitler was are not I believed in nationalism and nationalism was bad. When I responded to was I do not believe that we should be characterizing Hitler as a nationalist. He was a homicidal psychopathic maniac that killed his own people. A nationalist would not kill their own people. That is exactly what I was affirmed to in the clip, and he purposely wanted to give you a cut up similar to what they do to Donald Trump to create a different narrative that was unbelievably dishonest, and he did not allow me to respond to it, which is worrisome to tell you a lot about where people are today in terms of trying to drum up narratives, by the way. I would like to also add that I worked for Prager university. Which one by orthodox Jew on a single democrat showed up to embassy opening Jerusalem? I thought on a plane for. Eighteen hours to make sure that I was there. I'm deeply offended by the insinuation of revealing that clip without the question that was asked of me. There you go. And lose just sitting there not making any money just dead and Nadler, did you hear in the background? I don't know if you could hear it. But I've I've listened to the cut and seeing the cut whoever's next telling him she didn't say that she didn't say that she didn't attack anybody. She she. She didn't call anybody on that panel, not even paying attention. Two two major hits at once. That's gotta hurt. But again, the left can't help them. Ted lose a lightweight. Liberals are complete total lightweights today. They can't defend they cannot handle cross examination in any way. No, no they lie. They have today. Harry pick comments in order to make them seem like something. They're not. It's exactly what the media does. She made makes the great point because it just happened to Trump last weekend again where they brought up something that was eleven months old. At how ready been debunked? And you had a let me see. But a judge jumped on it. Ryan. Who else jumped on it? We went through the list day. And there were few of the other presidential candidates. That also jumped on it was like, what are you doing? That. Was that was the bunked? You know, it's getting to be like on Facebook the other day to do it on Facebook constantly on the memes. My friends posting stop the person never said that. Right. You know, the the one the one I developed again yesterday was the one with Kurt cobaine predicting the Donald Trump will be president seeing that never happened stopped hosting the damn thing. Right. And and it's whenever you see these memes out there of people just like they're like never happened. Never happened never happened. And that's basically what the Democrats have now become they become fake names. Well because. It's one thing to have a narrative based on any kind of falsehood. Right. Where you start on this false premise, and then you keep going, and again, as I've said, you when you start on a false premise, everything that follows seems logical because of that false premise, but you have to remember that it's all false based on the premise, which is false. That's that's the tactic of yesterday. The straw, man argument. The the creating of of of scenarios or situations or even people examples that never happened. That's still goes on somewhat. But now it is it really is just like creating a fake name and throwing it up there. And you're gonna get share after share after share after share because people want to believe these things. So they they take look I believe what I believe. But the last thing I want to do is jump on something completely and wholly without knowing all the facts because why because what's being presented to me could be wrong could be completely wrong in its entirety. The I don't want to base my opinion on something. But the differences you care about that, right? You care about basing your opinions on the truth, and you and I've talked about this before. I mean, it's way that we were brought up you have opinions, but the opinions had to be based on truth. Everything that you're coming out of your mouth is a lie. We were brought up. This comes from our parents is comes from the community. This comes from the neighborhood that we were brought up in. This comes from everybody that we surrounded the surrounding us as you were growing up as children. There was shame. We felt shame right. If we lied. We felt shame. If we were being hypocritical. We felt shame. Ted lieu in that instance, Jerrold Nadler and that they don't feel any shame. No, they don't care and to me. That's also the different psychologically of many on the left that you see right now, they feel no shame at all. And here's that much of a lightweight. Ted Lewis in that scenario. He thought Candace wasn't going to respond. He thought she wasn't going to defend herself that there was no way to defend think about that. When you see what he did though? He he he didn't go to her. And as justify what she said because he knew he knew he couldn't win that argument. So what did he do? He went to another woman another. Hey. Crime whatever they are smash and from the other side who made the comment, and then he was done. He didn't directly. Now, if I had somebody who's if I'm a congress person and somebody's representing themselves as being against something and or four something, and I believe they're against it. That I'm going to ask them directly to justify. What was in that comment? He couldn't do that. Because he knew he was lying and she. She's sitting right there. He's not afraid of getting burned. He thinks she's stupid. He thinks she wasn't going to respond to that that he was going to get away with it. Luckily, the Republican letter and that was inevitable. It was going to happen. That's how much of a lightweight. He is she setting right there. It's not like he was sitting there. MSNBC the way gutless lightweight. Have the debate have the debate find something real he couldn't do it. Why? Because he was lying and he knew he'd get caught. Yes. And she would embarrass him. But he still did it anyway because at the end of the setting right there because at the end of the day, if you actually do it when you when you actually do the research, you find out she wasn't promoting Hitler, right? He's wrong to begin with everybody. Anybody who has an open mind anybody who's not on the left? Anybody who has an open mind, and does the research looks at it and said you were just trying to set her up. Ted lieu you were trying to defame her reputation based on something that was false, by editing. Something not only edited it. But adding your opinion as to what the edit was about when it wasn't about that. Right. You even embellish the lie. They just don't get tired of. Getting burned. I guess they don't care about it. I mean, those are two back to back burns right there, Nadler jumping on her for something. She didn't say. You know, and that melodramatic way to you know, with the gavel in the whole thing. Can we can I get a gavel? Yeah. We need to go. I wanna get. No for me that we get. No. I wanna get to know, we know gavel. Yeah. Flack on the show, not cow bell. More games anymore. Gavel we need a couple of gals. There's anybody that knows any gavel makers will take two. You think there's a little power trip? You get that galley. Yeah. Right. I'm telling you not to say, yes. Yes. And then he's. Oh, that's got burn. You're not paying attention, Gerald. You're not even listening. Thanks, by the way. Thanks, a lot for not listening old white guy, African American female was speaking. Now, listen. You didn't even you didn't even care enough to pay attention to her words, right? Racist. So that Enron. Sure, we're by the way, we're this is just a stewing are impersonation of somebody in the left by their own standards by their own standards. Eight six six.

"Was asked of me. Gray. You Ted's face after that they showed his face in the video, and he looked like gobsmack because you can suck it. I thought you know, what really bothers me about this this beyond what they did to her. And how they try to get her when they didn't is that you can look at the today, you can look at like the wash the Washington Post is still acting like she lost this, right? And they're still like putting out there that the clip Ted lieu put forth, right? But the the fact that that one guy our neighbor now that whatever the miss the fact that he would he would say, hey, you can't call a stupid when dome cousin when she didn't of all she didn't do that. Because he wasn't listening to her. But the fact that he can look at her and say, don't call a stupid up call you anything. I wanna call you. Because the one thing that these people forget is that they work for us. Right. And I think that they have so forgotten that y'all. I mean, if so forgotten that in two thousand nine hundred while they're very powerful. Oh, yeah. They're a very powerful. But what they forget is that we pay their salaries they work for us. They are employee's, and they can bite me. I'm so tired of that attitude. I'm so tired of that elitist. We're so all powerful, you're you are little minions. And that is how they looked at her. Yeah. Dare I say they were being racist. You know? Yeah. Well, and and that's you know, that's what you just heard is just one little clip from her. I don't even want to call it a performance because it wasn't a performance. It was disturbing her. But that's just one clip from yesterday. There are so many others. Her opening statement was absolutely masterful. And so definitely go and watch him. We've got some of the clips on our website at chicks on the right dot com. They're amazing. Oh, by the way, you know. Democrats are so up in arms about racism and nationalism. And you know. Black face racism governor north I'm still has a job. I don't know if I've mentioned.
