"There are multiple federal laws governing the handling of classified records and sensitive government documents, including statutes that make it a crime to remove such material and retain it at an unauthorized location. Though a search warrant does not suggest that criminal charges are near, or even expected. Federal officials looking to obtain one must first demonstrate to a judge that they have probable cause that a crime occurred. Two people familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation, said the search happened earlier Monday and was related to the records probe. Agents were also looking to see if Trump had additional presidential records or any classified documents at the estate. Trump has previously maintained that presidential records were turned over and an ordinary and routine process. His son Eric, said on Fox News on Monday night that he had spent the day with his father, and that the search happened because the national archives wanted to corroborate whether or not Donald Trump had any documents in his possession. Asked how the documents ended up at Mar-a-Lago, Eric Trump said the boxes were among items that got moved out of The White House during 6 hours on inauguration day, as the bidens prepared to move into the building. My father always kept press clippings, Eric Trump said, he had boxes when he moved out of The White House. Trump emerged from Trump Tower in New York City shortly before 8 p.m., and waved to bystanders before being driven away in an SUV. In his first public remarks, since news of the search surfaced, Trump made no mention of it during a tele town hall on behalf of lyor levy, the Connecticut Republican he has endorsed in Tuesday's U.S. Senate primary to pick a general election opponent against democratic U.S. senator Richard blumenthal. Trump gave his public backing to levy late last week, calling her on Monday the best pick to replace Connecticut's joke of a senator. But in a social media post Monday night, he was much more unguarded, calling the search a weaponization of the justice system and an attack by radical left Democrats who desperately don't want me to run for president in 2024. Other Republicans echoed that message, GOP National Committee chair ronna mcdaniel denounced the surge as outrageous and said it was a reason for voters to turn out in November. Florida governor Ron DeSantis, a Republican who is considered a potential 2024 presidential candidate, said in a statement on Twitter that it was an escalation in the weaponization of U.S. government agencies. Kevin McCarthy, the House minority leader, said in a tweet that the Justice Department has reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization and said that if Republicans win control of the U.S. House, they will investigate the department. That Trump would become entangled in a probe into the handling of classified information, is all the more striking, given how he tried during the 2016 presidential election to exploit an FBI investigation into his democratic opponent. Hillary Clinton, over whether she mishandled classified information via a private email server, she used as Secretary of State. Then FBI director James Comey concluded that Clinton had sent and received classified information, but that the FBI did not recommend criminal charges because it determined that Clinton had not intended to break the law. Trump lambasted that decision and then stepped up his criticism of the FBI as agents began investigating whether his campaign had colluded with Russia to tip the 2016 election. He fired Comey during that probe, and though he appointed ray months later, he repeatedly criticized him too, as president.

"We're blessed to live in the greatest nation ever to exist in the history of the world. Luke 1248 says quote to whom much has been given, much will be required. We as Christians can shape our world. One of these ways is how we steward our finances and our money. If you have money in stocks, you have the power to affect change through your investments. Jesus spoke about money and roughly 15% of his teachings, and 11 out of 39 of his parables. How do we follow his teachings about money? Well, my friends at pax financial can help. I've opened an account with them. I think very highly of them. They are fiduciaries that will make sure you have a responsible plan to retire. I trust them with my money, and I hope you will as well. But look, they'll also help you invest in companies that align with your beliefs, no companies that engage in pornography or in excessive drinking or in a degenerate lifestyle. If you have a $150,000 to invest, please text my name Charlie to the number 7 four 8 6 8. And even if you don't have a $150,000, maybe they'll make an exception for you. I don't know, but just learn more about them. Look, text Charlie to 7 four 8 6 8. Take advantage of the power to make a difference with your money, pax financial. It was great for me, I think it will be terrific for you. So I'll be very honest when it comes to Georgia, I don't get it. Today is the Alabama primary. And Alabama and Georgia are two very similar states where there's kind of the southern good old boys network. Where their Republican, but a lot of Republican in name only. And this is an interesting phenomenon. And it's an open, it's a moving theory, if you will, I am open for correction, but I'm pretty close to writing a pretty substantial piece on this and doing a whole podcast on it where my theory is that it's actually unhealthy for a state politically to be too Republican or too Democrat. I actually think a state ends up being freer if it's right near the 50 50 margins. Now the case in point example I use is Florida. I believe if you have to compete for your votes and that it's not an automatic that you're going to hold on to political power, the next time around, you actually have to be more accountable. You have to be more transparent and you have to be better, you have to be a better leader. So Florida is a great example of that. Now, Texas is a very interesting state. Texas absolutely and totally has a good old boy network. So Georgia has a good old boy network that got Brian Kemp passed the primary. How? I don't quite understand it. I believe Alabama has that good old boy network that is going to make Katie Britt, the nominee. I hope mo Brooks wins today, but the polling doesn't look very good. I did a tele town hall for mo Brooks. I hope everyone goes out and votes for mo Brooks today, but I'm trying to be realistic as well. Donald Trump has come out and endorsed Britt, but we'll see what happens. The southern states have kind of this, we're all Republican, and if you are kind of a moderate Democrat, you might as well run as a Republican. Texas used to be like that. Now, Texas has its smoke filled rooms and it's backhanded deals. But the Bush family ran the Texas Republican Party for a long time. The good old boy network of Texas was run by the bush dynasty. Now trust me, there's a cartel of insiders in Austin and in Texas. Trust me. I'm not saying it's been displaced, but it has been severely weakened. Where the Texas Republican convention was this last weekend. And it's evidence and it's something that should give us hope for the Republican Party across the country. That there is a new movement that has taken over the Republican Party. Texas was used to kind of walk around on eggshells and Texas Republican Party kind of be moderate Republicans, it's anything but that. The grassroots thanks to Donald Trump's leadership have taken over the Republican Party in Texas. By this example of this, when John cornyn went to go speak at the Texas convention, gets booed off stage by the Texas grassroots because of his outright support of gun control. Play cut 51. The Republican Party is being revitalized. It finally has a new grassroots center that we've been waiting for for so long. And honestly, I have to give Ron DeSantis a tremendous amount of credit for this. Florida pushed Texas to start acting like Texas. Now, Arkansas, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia. Those and Utah, South Carolina, I got nothing for you. But I think it's because they're actually very Republican. May I make a provocative argument? The more Democrats that have moved to Texas, the more conservative the leadership of the Republican Party has become in Texas. The more Texas has become like a battleground state, Texas has now reasserted itself in leadership, and I believe it's out of self preservation. South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee is still okay. Those other states, I got nothing for you. I don't get it what's happening. They might as well be Democrats at times. But Texas, it's no longer the bush dynasty. It's a people centered grassroots party that has taken over the Texas Republican Party. That's good news..

"John Tucker thank you so much we appreciate that Well in the Democrats woke up this morning they're like wait what happened Looking at Virginia looking at New Jersey Still things in New Jersey fluid still too early to call there but I believe the Democrats have conceded in Virginia Let's get the latest Joe Matthew Washington correspondent and host of Bloomberg sound on Joe let's start with your locality down there in Washington D.C. with a Virginia You know I was just looking at a map that's one of the networks had up on the screen And it was basically all red with the exception of Northern Virginia cup other little dots of blue It's been suburbs Yeah But the rest of the state was effectually all red Tacos beverage Virginia Specifically to Virginia Beach that was an area that had turned blue during the Trump administration in 17 then again a year ago it got even bluer with Joe Biden who of course won the state by ten points as you've probably heard by now And when you look at the way this worked out last night not only did previously blue areas turn red but those blue areas that you saw still on that map for Washington D.C. suburbs very progressive Arlington Alexandria and then down around Richmond He didn't have the turnout or the margins that Joe Biden had a year ago So the relative strength of Democrats in Virginia over the course of one year one year was down significantly There is no two ways about it So is this because of a lack of turnout for the Democrats or is it because the voters are either unhappy with the job that the Democrats have done or are attracted to the ideas that the Republicans have been espousing Yes When you look at this both ways here there was clearly an enthusiasm gap and we did see Matt a lack of turnout primarily among African American voters who lifted Joe helped a lift Joe Biden to victory not nearly as many voted for Terry mcauliffe or at all as the case may be And then when you look at the youngin side of things the Republican enthusiasm was much higher And he just he managed to find a formula that appealed in many ways to parents in some cases people who had voted for Trump in some cases had not as he straddled that Trump story incredibly effectively and this is what's gonna be kind of the senior seminar for Republican strategists in the next couple of weeks and months as they gear up for the real midterm race which is now kind of already underway after last night They're going to try to duplicate that in states all over the country Yeah what I thought was unique Joe about the Glenn young strategy campaign strategy is I didn't see or hear of Donald Trump out there and I guess if I'm a Republican think at the midterms I'm thinking that might be a playbook Yet if you were plugged into Trump if you were a real Trump supporter you were still getting the statements the endorsements A lot of a lot of support for Glenn young kid but they never appeared together on stage They didn't even appear in that tele town hall as they called it the other night Despite Terry mcauliffe's great wish that they would embrace each other before the cameras it never happened And that could be the formula that young confound Trump lite as axios called him without all the name calling the drama associated with sort of the classic Trump brand young may have created a whole new one So get your fleece vests out in your mild manner because there's a lot of racism All right Joe let's go up to the swamps of Jersey my home state here Man we got a barn burner here A couple of weeks ago it seemed like it was almost a double digit lead for me but that's the thing Look from Virginia to New Jersey look again at the last two months we've seen these numbers really crater In the case of New Jersey though it was kind of overnight I mean I don't think that many people expected a double digit win for governor Murphy but high single digits and to not know what's going on right now I mean my gosh they're with intense hundreds of a point And granted it's still likely as you talk to people in New Jersey that Murphy can pull out a win because of the amount of early voting that has yet to be counted But boy this is another matter Jack should really last night It may have really put his finger on it while he was talking to his supporters He said in New Jersey every single time this state has gone off track The people have pushed pulled and prodded it right back where it needs to be That also could be part of the Republican formula that we're here to keep the train on the tracks and save you from this progressive movement in Washington So what does all this mean for salt I know that Bernie Sanders came out yesterday against it He said something about no more tax cuts for the billionaires He must think they're a lot more billionaires than they're wrong I mean it would be pretty easy just to say the 700 billionaires in America don't get this tax cut Or just carve out the states That's the part I don't get Matt If you want to just give the give the carve out to New York New Jersey Illinois California and we're done here because Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says she was open to that And that's the same person just like Bernie Sanders who called this a gift to millionaires and billionaires This though will change the tone and tenor of this agreement What happened last night almost doesn't matter anymore If they have a deal on a 5 year suspension or whatever it is everyone this morning Democrats specifically progresses are gonna take another look at that because obviously there's a push here to get back to the center a little bit here in moderates are going to be needed if there's ever going to be a reconciliation plan or going to be needed to lift that over the finish line And right now they're looking at the results from last night wondering well maybe we should be doing this a little bit differently And Joe just third 30 seconds what do you expect to get from the Democratic Party just in a couple of days in terms of response or rationalization I think you're going to see a flurry on Capitol Hill There's the leadership is really trying to move to some votes this week We heard that as soon as today and I had this on a pretty good source last night that the House rules committee would be drawing up rules for votes It's early as Thursday That started to wane a little bit as we got into the business week That could be very much back on track here Joe Biden is going to be waking up after a late night this morning saying guys let's go It's now or never The option here the only alternative to this deal for Democrats is nothing You want what you have here or you want nothing because you're not likely going to get it all All right Joe

"tele town hall" Discussed on TIME's Top Stories

"What people are able to purchase is very profoundly affected by the number that comes out. We are talking the necessities of living in many cases. This year's social security trustees report amplified warnings about the long-range financial stability of the program, but there's little talk about fixes in Congress with lawmakers consumed by president Joe Biden's massive domestic legislation and partisan machinations over the national debt. Social security can not be addressed through the budget reconciliation process, Democrats are attempting to use to deliver Biden's promises. Social security's turn will come, said representative John Larson, a Democrat from Connecticut, chairman of the House, social security subcommittee and author of legislation to tackle shortfalls that would leave the program unable to pay full benefits in less than 15 years. His bill would raise payroll taxes while also changing the Cola formula to give more weight to healthcare expenses and other costs that weigh more heavily on the elderly. Larson said he intends to press ahead next year. This one time shot of Cola is not the antidote, he said. Although Biden's domestic package includes a major expansion of Medicare to cover dental, hearing, and vision care, Larson said he hears from constituents that seniors are feeling neglected by the Democrats. In town halls and tele town halls, they're saying, we are really happy with what you did on the child tax credit. But what about us, Larsen added? In a midterm election, this is a very important constituency. The kola is only one part of the annual financial equation for seniors, an announcement about Medicare's part B premium, they pay for outpatient care is expected soon. It's usually an increase, so at least some of any social security raise gets eaten up by healthcare. The part B premium is now $148 50 cents a month. And the Medicare trustees report estimated a $10 increase for 2022. Economist Marilyn moon, who also served as public trustee for social security and Medicare, said she believes the current spurt of inflation will be temporary due to highly unusual economic circumstances. I would think there is going to be an increase this year that you won't see reproduced in the future, moon said. But policymakers should not delay getting to work on retirement programs, she said. We're at a point in time where people don't react to policy needs until there is a sense of desperation, and both social security and Medicare are programs that benefit from long-range planning rather than short-range machinations. She said. Social security is financed by payroll taxes collected from workers and their employers. Each pays 6.2% on wages up to a cap, which is adjusted each year for inflation. Next year, the maximum amount of earnings subject to social security payroll taxes will increase to $147,000. The financing scheme dates back to the 1930s. The brainchild of president Franklin D. Roosevelt, who believed a payroll tax would foster among average Americans, a sense of ownership that would protect the program from political interference. That argument still resonates. Social security is my lifeline, said ruderman, the New York retiree, it's what we've worked for. Meet Shannon Simmons, owner.

"But the of the united states he wants to different takeover. Disrupt the government. The united states like now lies about what happened on january six. That is far worse than anything. Bill clinton never. Did i wanna ask you about lies because you now have. A huge percentage of republicans. Believing that this was not an insurrection. You have a percentage of republicans believing that the vaccine doesn't work a you have a huge percentage of republicans believing that the lacked last. Election was invalid. Do you worry about the future of your party right now. Gallup shows only twenty four percent of americans registered or consider themselves republican forty four percent or independent thirty percent democratic. Do you worry about that. I don't worry that in that poll. Six percent difference between registered republicans registered democrats. No yeah no will you ask both so certain look. I don't. I don't support lying. If that's your question no i don't i do think there is some conspiracy theory theorists on our side It is being generated by some of these new sites on the right that That trying to get clicks and trying to get donations and do those kinds of things Look i think there are three areas you mentioned. I think there are some legitimate questions but ultimately no. I don't believe any the things you just said. are accurate and so we do have to be accurate. We have to factual We want the other side to do the same thing. You can have healthy debate with different opinions but we have to be working off share facts. And that's why. I don't promote those kinds of conspiracy theories. I'm very careful in the language that i use. I gotta ask you about the vaccines. Do you think president biden should mandate them to the extent that he can and may we're hearing he may you know government workers wild. This is still vaccine. That is not under emergency us But it has not been fully cleared by the fda. Do you worry about that backlash. They're certainly there will be political. Backlash at the president tries to lean in on this. The reality is though that we've got The president does have the ability to encourage people to do this and to make life more difficult for people who don't because the people who don't get vaccinated are making life more difficult for the majority of americans who are trying to take health seriously. And i gotta tell you. I've got twenty one month old daughter who had a respiratory problem. When she was eight weeks old we have worn math the entire time because we don't want to bring the corona virus home to our kids who cannot be vaccinated and i think if nothing else can be true in the country which all unite around the fact that we should not put children in jeopardy who cannot get vaccinated so at least wear masks around kids in public in public spaces and that means teachers healthcare workers and in fact if you work for the government. Perhaps you should be doing the same thing. It's for other people. Don't ask you about something you tweeted. You tweeted out. Wow last night. After fellow texan jake. l z. got that right one special election. Yep he wants special election over. The trump endorsed susan right to fill a congressional seat left vacant by her husband who died of the corona virus now allies told supporters voters in the district. One a positive outlook. They want a reagan. Republican go ahead. Yeah look it was. It was an interesting all these special elections. This was a special can run off so it's even smaller. It's even more narrow It wasn't disappeared completely matters. There was a interesting race in club. Perot spent dollars negative ads against against susan. So trump's endorsement didn't go very far in this case he didn't really work at that. He put a statement out to robocall and he did one tele town hall the night before. That's really not very much. So i don't know that tells us everything but i. I don't know that doesn't tell us anything either. I think it was unique race with candidates but if trump's gonna try to endorse and make make make a difference in these races. He's gonna have to put his shoulder to the wheel and do some actual work well and by the way. We just lost a little bit of your sound. So the trump door. Susan right whose husband died.

I am And I just just left a con concrete facility over enough. Seven forced to Franklin County there for Terra, and so they all said to tell you how I couple of him. Listen to you, and to you and Josh boats. They were pretty excited. That was gonna be on the radio. Well, I appreciate that. Hello, people. Thank you very much for listening. You know, this is nice. You had a A town hall. I mean it. Is it a tele Town hall. Still at this point Yeah, it's still tele Town Hall on. Don't say what Mark that there's a really successful we could get Several 1000 people on they don't have to leave their home. I get a great response from it. They get past questions if they're question doesn't get answered. Myself will call back and another. You know, folks from my staff will call back here in the past year. We've had special guest on we had, frankly rose on last month. I've had about two, right, Ryan Squire. Said. Emergency room for high health at Riverside on talking about, you know, answering any concerns about covert, but he's put on a couple times so they're really informational. And it's just not me talking and we will get people on. We've had a couple small business people on, uh, you know, talking about issues that they're going through and half to the past year with Cove it right. And, you know, so with the success of that, I hope that in person will return at some point to which I'm sure there's probably nothing like, you know, getting out and shaking hands and meeting people and looking him in the eye and all of those things, too. I would imagine. No, it's not. And you know we're going to do something. We did something down here in great shot, little community on blinking county and kind on the edge of Miss Kingdom and licking County And you know, it is a good is a small group. We had to keep it pretty small. But there's always fun, and it's a great way to interact with people and we really enjoyed and, um you know what I have to give a shout out to Everwood, all from the F B, A, who is also a special guest with us a couple times. On the tele Town hall, especially when the paycheck protection plan first came out. So you know that was very informational. And we really appreciate it. Enjoying this too. Yeah. Um Okay, So let's start with you know the unemployment. I saw your unemployment tweet and you know, it's tough for businesses to get going again. Right about now. So what are your thoughts on how we get this going? Get it jump started. Well, I got great news for your market's pretty within the last 15 minutes. Conversation with Gentlemen and some roosters, which you are pretty frequent, popular, um, establishment here in central Ohio, he said this past weekend he had more people. Common apply for work and he has had in months. I attribute that and he does, too, to governor. The wine, making the decision to eliminate the $300 enhancement of the federal benefit that has been passed down to US and That should be a big turn the organization I just left for Terra. I mean, they still need to the four people. That doesn't sound like a lot, but it's a great job. You started $19 an hour and work your way up to $26 an hour and it's full benefits. But I think you know with that restaurant. Franchise the talking about you know, the You know what he's had this past weekend will be out in about this week and I'll make some calls. Awesome. And it's gotta help. When when I was so happy when the governor decided to Not take on that $300 any longer. It was a big relief for not only me, but also for a lot of small business owners looking for people well, and you know, we're I talked a couple of different times the last month. About you Go somewhere, And if it's open, then they're incredibly short staffed. I think everybody is experiencing that right now. And this is music to my ears to hear that, you know all of the applications that year, you know, for roosters. And what have you? I guess my question to Troy is that $300 enhancement. That you know Biden is his handing out right now. Are there consequences for Ohio or any of the other states that are rejecting this? We know this goes. I believe right now. It's scheduled to go until September, and you know they'll probably re up it at that point, but Do you know of anything right off the top of your head as far as consequences that might be handed down to states that are rejecting this. Now there's no consequences that you're going to see more states jump on board. A former colleague of mine. That's now the governor of Montana. Greg Forte, whose office is right next to mine and Congress. He was the first one to do it. I shot him attacks when he did it. Uh, I mean, I'm glad that he was able to do it and hey, started a pretty quick, so there's no Um, you know, I don't think anyone's gonna get in trouble for doing this. And you stay well, and you're seeing more and more states jump on Mark, uh, that are taking us on and not Adding the extra $300 onto us. Hey, Troy. It's just good to talk to you. My man wanted to bring this up because this has been Something that I followed. And I just I laugh at her stubbornness, but the speaker Nancy Pelosi, is she going to hold on to the silly mask rule in the house like for Is this like the hills? She's willing to die on the force. You guys to mask up even though I think about 80% Of ah, of the house has been vaccinated and people who've already had it have natural immunity. I mean, how much How long is she could drag this silliness out, Troy? As long as she can just like the metal detectors before we go in the House, Florida boat. Um you know, it's interesting. She was at the White House on Friday. I'm sure you guys have already seen the picture of speaker. Losi down the White House without a mask on we literally go everywhere around the capital. I sent you guys videos and pictures of the moon. We did defenses and stuffy. You go everywhere now. I mean, even the Capitol Hill Police officers are no longer happened where their mask but once we go up those steps And and go through the metal detector. We gotta put our mask on. And, um, as you all seen and the press there several members that are not doing that. Um, I'm not Only seen a couple that have been pretty consistent, but I think she does Josh and look, it's it's power man, and she's she's able to do it. And, um, I signed on to a letter a couple weeks ago that my fellow congressmen Bob gives part of the Great Ohio delegation that he had addressed and we signed on to it and put that there that you know, followed the science, not political science. I think the tweet that we put out last week. Well that well, that's just it. Troy is that certain people they've been beating this drum. Follow the science. Follow the science. Well, now we're hanging on to silly things like this mass mandate. Based on what the CDC CDC saying they're not there. The science deniers now they're not following the science. I mean, how refreshing wasn't to go on our Kroger's if one of you I want my program this weekend, and I don't have to wear a mask. Yeah. I mean, it was just unbelievable. And you know, I don't have to wear a mask in the Kroger, but I have to go into a chamber. That as you said, Josh 75 to 80% of been vaccinated or have had it. I have to wear a mask on Lee because one person says we have to, and that's because it's Carol. Well, there's a razor thin Democrat margin now, isn't there? I mean, I don't know if you guys both have you noticed on Friday when we passed this, uh, when? When she passes 1.9 trillion or billion dollars. Protection package passed by one vote. Uh and I'll share this with you guys on the force..

facing job losses and quarantines most of us have sent our work hours I'm sorry our team home for telework you know I know my team is gonna telework as of last week we can do most of our work remotely and I think most house offices are adjusting to the fact that the building's not letting in visitors know towards that kind of thing which really helps this specific but translational side the CDC put out new guidelines warning people against groups of more than fifty people up for the next eight weeks so this current legislation aside what is a realistic time line for you guys to return considering that you know a lot of your colleagues are not as young as you are yeah well listen I mean the speaker has been very clear with us that our job is to legislate and to vote and even if our staffs are into support us we will be doing our job and by the way this isn't the first time in history that Congress has had to deal with you know illness or flu or malaria I mean this is not totally unprecedented but it is our job to be legislating so if we're called back I know we're all on a quick stream to come back to Washington if we need to and we'll do it and you know I I obviously we have colleagues who are older than we are we already have some of our colleagues who are voluntarily self isolating and quarantining who haven't been voting if people need to do that for their health or because they've been exposed they should do that and we already I believe have at least ten members who are doing that even before we you know sort of went into our separate districts have you given any thought his the democratic leadership given any additional thought to voting remotely you know it's interesting there is a bill that some of the freshmen members have been pushing that calls on remote voting and while I don't know that we have a secure enough technology to implement that now I think it certainly gives people an interesting thing to chew on for you know the future and and of course you know the freshman class in general both Democrats and Republicans are on average fifteen years younger than the rest of Congress so we think about how to bring technology into Congress and modernize Congress kind of just in our sleep we do that regularly so there is a letter going around calling on the speaker to support remote voting you mentioned obviously the freshman class you were a member of that freshman class that really is responsible for the Democrats being in the majority flipping one of those seats the election is not that far away have you given any thought to how you're going to run for reelection if this is a a long term sort of normal for this country this social isolation yeah I mean I gotta be honest that's obviously not the priority right now we are all working hard in our congressional roles to make sure that our local leaders have what they need to explain to them what's coming down the pike from the federal level and I know that's how I'm spending all my time but it is prompting a lot of questions about how do you engage with voters when you can't pull them all together into a big room when you can't you know maybe people aren't interested in having someone knock on their door certainly not now so I've asked my team to kind of get creative and think about this and come up with a plan we're all in new territory here it's not the priority right now but once we get a month or two into this you can see how from everything from the presidential down to the most local level we're going to have to be thinking out of the box when it comes to campaigning I mean it's not just campaigning I suppose I know generally during a a district work period like you are in now you would have what two three town halls I mean how how what was your normal schedule like during a recess period versus what it's gonna look like this week yeah what's interesting is so I do have a big town hall but it's a tele town hall right people can call in listen ask questions we have experts on the line we really transitioned a lot of our meetings including all day for me today a lot of my meetings that I would have done in person we've transitioned to video teleconference a lot of my visits to places her now being done by phone call so we're trying to maintain robust contact with people without being in the room with them and I think that's going to be the challenge for people who are used to kind of get into a big room shaking hand it's looking people in the eye we're going to have to figure out ways to do that I did a big event yesterday that was by video conference you know where everyone can click in and you can ask questions and engage directly it's just a it's a whole New World when it comes to keeping up with your constituents was that the original plan no absolutely not the original plan was to be in a room together but we we can't I can't in good faith do that right it doesn't make sense we had a number of older folks who were participants in the meeting so we went to video teleconference and we've invested in technology that allows us to do that in a way that's professional and still allows people to engage in that back and forth you know you can do a Facebook live video but it's hard for people to ask you direct questions they can't look you in the eye at least in a video teleconference people can see you and raise their hands and get called upon and ask their questions what's the have you gotten a time line from from the speaker from leadership I mean are you guys from congressional sent points of coordinating with the White House what what is that look like what is the apparatus look like as far as trying to figure out I mean the Senate's in session a lot of people are questioning whether they should be so here's how it it has been working and what I anticipate the house is now passed to emergency coronavirus appropriations one was about ten days ago that covered things like investing in research so that we can understand that this thing I'm investing in a potential killer but also just in the near term some treatment right how do we treat people who have this thing along with some other emergency provisions for the federal government and our and our research world the second vote bill that we just passed through the house and is now awaiting review in the Senate is helping families and particularly those people who work for small businesses who don't have access normally to sick leave or emergency family leave it make sure our kids can still get meals if they were getting them through school kind of the emergency response for our families bill and then we're gonna have to do at least one more and that third one frankly I think of is kind of the big enchilada that's going to be the economic recovery package well we had to talk about that I mean what is that look I mean I talked to a lot of lawmakers who have said you know this is the time for a big stimulus package but what does that look like this is bailing out the a to use that word you know airlines hotels cruise lines is this more focused on that it's always infrastructure week in Washington is this the time to actually do infrastructure week yeah so this is the these are the kinds of conversations were just starting to have it's in the drafting is in its infancy and those kind of fundamental questions are all on the table the bailout piece but also how do we make sure since since we are that we have gone through a similar type of stimulus requirement back in two thousand and eight right we did have these conversations and you can learn a lot from what we did then and try to help that guide how we move forward on this package I know that a bunch of lawmakers are getting on a call this week myself included to talk to experts people who were in charge and living through that two thousand and eight experience gonna go to they're gonna go through the lessons learned and then we're gonna come up with are we sort of suggestions on what should be in this big economic recovery package the big thing for me is hearing from my district so we've already put out a new like address on the web where our constituents especially our business leaders can write to us and say here's what really needs to be an economic package I need to hear from my district on what they need in addition to folks who lived through the two thousand and eight recovery package have you given thought to temporary it cut to the payroll taxes as president trump has suggested you know I know that he floated that to be honest with you a lot of the business leaders that I really take my cues from did not think that that was the most urgent need but I those are the kinds of things that are actually on the table and I'm not going to rule out anything I just think we need to be prudent we need to be thoughtful and we need to not just shock you know sort of money at the problem we need to have a plan and then it has to be negotiated and I know based on watching the back and forth between secretary of the treasury Mnuchin and speaker Pelosi you know that took a good three days of just almost shuttle diplomacy phone calls and visits so we know that this is going to be a big debate that's a healthy debate we should have that debate but what I want to do is get started in that for me starts with hearing from my district congresswoman appreciate the time in these uncertain times that to answer these questions stay safe and the best to you and your

Senators Running In 2020 Look To Make An Impact In Iowa

"Has yanked the three senators seriously competing in the Iowa caucuses back to Washington for a trial with only Sundays off for good behavior this will be their last Sunday to compete in Iowa last weekend during what was probably their last unencumbered stretch of campaigning before Monday's caucuses all three reacted in characteristic fashion about being in Washington for the impeachment trial more from Walter Shapiro staff writer at the new Republic Walter who's saying what what weight class what they're saying it's where they're saying it the fact is that of the top five candidates in Iowa three of them are supposed to have taken a vow of silence as impeachment here are the three senators Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar so it's that is one thing that we have never seen before in trying to handicap Iowa for example Amy clubber Kerr was doing a tele town hall with a maybe ten thousand I went on the fall but this is such a whole three substituted campaigning person but we have other variables the more the Republicans scream about hunter Biden even though there is no evidence whatsoever that hunter Biden did anything illegal the more it raises questions I would think in the minds of a number of Iowa Democrat Joe Biden really the most electable Democrat or do we have to argue about when your bite into fifty thousand dollar a month retainer rain energy company until November that cease to face I would imagine I I think Elizabeth Warren might have captured it best talking about the lack of face to face and how that that's so critical in Iowa it is very much and I mean the fact is that the best candidates and by far Elizabeth Warren has the best stump speech in Iowa and her her that she's not giving it in any consistent way I mean they're gonna be back on Saturday when the impeachment trial presumably takes a break but should be a breakneck thirty six hours and you can't find too many I wind of boaters at four in the morning yes speaking with Walter Shapiro staff writer at the new Republic so what have say the likes of senator Sanders warning club char said cleverly to kind of avoid the subject of being in the impeachment trial Bernie Sanders has been consistently grumpy about the whole fuss is totally playing to tight now that have been watching that I wish it were otherwise that would that's a paraphrase a little bit of wind has just talked about how much she misses I answer question press about how much she I just misses the face to face interactions with voters in town halls and Amy Klobuchar he's put the highest note possible on it saying that it's an honor to be in Europe only one of only one hundred Americans get the chance to make this judgment an impeachment trial and this is her higher duty I thought you brought up an interesting point to about endorsements right here senator club which are with the shared endorsement oddly enough from The New York Times and then another one recently in Iowa from the quad city times all of a sudden she's gonna sidelined in not even able really to show these off I guess well bear pictured inner TV ads in similar fashion Aliza up since I wrote my article for the new Republic Elizabeth Warren was endorsed by the morning register the largest paper in the state and so do endorsements carry the same weight that they used to and if so how do they come into play when you have senator sidelined an impeachment trial well first of all endorsements and this is sad Purnell bring guy like me endorsements don't carry the weight they did twenty thirty forty years ago but in a caucus where voters are so desperate for clues and cues endorsements may matter in Iowa more than a matter any other time during the twenty twenty presidential
