As Trump makes baseless fraud allegations, Republicans back his refusal to concede
"In dozens of states from both political parties say there is no evidence that fraud or other violations Played a role in President Trump's defeat. But Republican lawmakers and candidates are following Trump's lead and refusing to concede and that includes Republicans in California. KCR W's Tara Katrina has the run down. Throughout the state Republicans are echoing Trump's refusal and promoting untrue allegations of voting irregularities. They include representatives Tom McClintock of Elk Grove, Douglas, Alfa Oroville and Devin Nunes of two Larry same goes for minority leader of the California state Senate, Shannon Grove. And the top ranking Republican in Congress Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of Bakersfield. Closer to home. Some field candidates are trying to sow doubt too. Carol Webber didn't really have a fighting chance at his run for California's 37th District congressional seat. The Republican was up against popular Democrat incumbent Karen Bass in a very blue part of Los Angeles. At last count, Weber lost by more than 72% points, but even he has refused to concede, citing baseless claims. In this case,
2020 Vice Presidential Debate: Post Debate Analysis
"First, as always, when we have a debate, presidential, vice presidential or otherwise we bring in my friend Kpk political analyst Gary Dietrich, who joins us right now, Gary, Welcome to the show. They had good to be with you. And I look forward to a sharing with our callers. And perhaps even hear from them stopped on this. No doubt an important night, my friend. I think it probably is going to go down as one of the most. Important and watch Vice presidential debates. As you know, pad most people steer clear and find out which Channel V p debate it now. Not for me, not tonight. Well, you know for me, Gerry. Because we all know what happened in the presidential debate. Okay? But in the vice presidential debate, couple of things first thing I want to say is, I think we, um maybe learned a little bit more about about The candidates, and certainly one of the things I learned is it was a little different in the first one. It wasn't so testy, and that's college other names to do that, But But when, course, the moderator time, Susan Page us said to the University of Utah, where they held it, But she would say Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, And they would just keep talking as if she was not even ending it in. Both of them were guilty of that tonight. They just don't seem to follow the protocol. Anyone? Yeah, They certainly do a lot better tonight than last week. I mean, but that debt debt to me got annoying as well. But at least and then cure Point Palace is very well taken. It was a far far more substantive debate. Because again last Tuesday, a good third of it. You couldn't even make out what people were saying, because they were talking over each other so much. And then when that wasn't happening. I know the third of it was nothing more than name calling and accusing each other of stuff, right, right. I thought substance substantively. Far better. I know we want to dive into that. But I just think you know a farm or just say, I think helpfully conducted debate that we saw last week. Why a very extensive notes that I took care of it. Let's go to your notebook first. Gerry, what did you take away from this other than the things you've mentioned? Where there's wasn't much name calling, and it was a bit more substantive and it was in certain areas. But I tell you one observation I haven't we continue to have When it comes to politicians. They have an absolute art of avoiding questions, Gerry. It's amazing. It is an amazing talent. You know, sometimes it's so funny because it gets so extreme that they literally launch up on something completely unrelated. To what the question everyone's right. Never even come back, even attempt to do it right. You know, there's the art of bridging, which is you start with an answer that's related question, and you'll really get it. Bridge to something that you'd rather talk about. But somebody has just said I was just like, okay. Thanks for Thanks for speaking. I'd like to say this. All right, let me let me tell you one impression, and I came away from more generally. That and part of this is the nature of being an incumbent III, The vice president, who is currently in office, and part of it is and I have to say this, I felt like in this moderators case. Not a fair and thorough job of taking to cast. Some of Harris is history in elected office, which is extensive and buy even more, so I felt like the vice president Was on the defensive for most of the debate, particularly early on And and I felt like there could have been far more balance in saying, Hey, Well, you know the questions that's been raised about, you Know, X Y Z. When Joe Biden was in the Senate, we didn't hear anything about his voting. Many, many years of voting record Senate nor, frankly, honestly, really any kind of a hardball question about the years service vice president nor really questions that even within our own party have been raised about Senator Harris to me. I had a sense in which the questions themselves. What? Adequately reflective off some of the challenges that have been raised about those who currently or seeking the office. Not holding. I'm glad to hear you say that, Gary because I'm sitting there and I'm listening, and I'm listening very carefully in the moderator moderator plays a big part in this and you're absolutely right. From my perspective. I felt the same thing. I thought the questions were slanted. Um, the through the entire time all the way up until the end when we and I remember the presidential debate, Gary, I remember how the ending they manufacture this question about if you were to lose the election, Mr President, and would there be there smooth transition of power, and then we hear this. We hear this Susan page tonight at the end, and she asked both of them, and it's a slight on the president. He never said he was not going to leave the office piece. We never said anything like that. And there she is pressing this. What I consider to be a manufactured question about what's gonna happen. How would you handle that? Mike Panzer. How would you take? What would your response be? Comma Harris, you and Joe Biden. I am in total agreement. I thought that the questions were slanted, Gary. Well, and you know me, Pat and our listeners have known me for 20. Plus years on the station. You know, I I call them like I see him. I don't care what it was all going on, or Jerry about who was it doesn't matter in the national level, the exact game way, But I really came away feeling that And then there was and I do agree with you about that last question. Frankly, it's the only one she was able to oppose the moderate, she said. She had time for related to election integrity, and I really expected her to go to the integrity of the mail in ballots and these other questions. You know, our How long is the process could be could be drawn out. Could there be expensive court challenges. So take the time to go about whether the president's going to leave or not just seemed odd to me, particularly when everybody from Mitch McConnell on down it made utterly clear. That the president will be leaving if he gets voted out. Anyone if he isn't saying another thing about a question that I really found and I don't know how to use a word except disingenuous. It was the question about When Amy Cola coming back, so just highlighted? Yes, taking up picking up next week and it was about it was about what would you do? And it was a long and convoluted way to get to the Abortion question. What would you do that Mr Vice President in your home state of Indiana, if you'd get if you get approved, and if they throw out will be weighed. And if it goes back to the states, then what would you say Indiana should do what I said. He's not the governor of Indiana anymore. He's going to have absolutely no say in that policy making decision. It was so convoluted odd to me. I felt why don't you just ask you a few pro life or pro choice? Because that's really what the heart of your question is? Absolutely it is. And I believe the American people can see through that, Gary. I really do. Even if your vote he made up your mind. I mean, it's pretty obvious that you can see what's happening, and there was another point there. Where they were talking about late term abortions up until the last day and and pants and asked, you know about that. And there was no answer from Kamala Harris. There was no it was a redirection. It was abridging as you say, Hey, also asked if Judge Amy Kona bear it was going to be appointed. Would you be filling the Supreme Court room? She never answered it. He says to her. I want to make it very clear to the American people. I want them to note that she never answered the question that she says. Well, I'm gonna answer the question right now. Now I'm going to answer. The question can never answer the question. Never, and I listened. I was waiting for that. You know, I was waiting for the answer. It never happened. Yeah, that that and that is a very important issue. I mean, if there's three issues that people are very concerned about it last night, I happened to moderate a debate on I was in debate was a candidate forum of a number of different off was honored of moderate and you know, Congressman Tom McClintock. Well, Yeah, he he was headlining that candidate for him and added, he laid out very eloquently is senator as Congress. McClintock often does what he perceived to be the three major issues going report and it wasn't anything about specific foreign policy or even economic policy was packing the Supreme Court. It was about whether the filibuster is going to be thrown out in the Senate so that whoever has the majority will have complete and utter control. And and thirdly, whether state who is going to be granted to particular selected entities like Puerto Rico like Washington, D. C. That would then begin to quote unquote packed the Congress. And these are very, very significant issues for the future of the United States and our governmental process. None of that was raised tonight and to your point pat, which I think is well taken. Senator Harris refused, and there's no way to get around that refused to answer that question. And I thought that was very telling that you know that issue, which is a very central one right now and could have ramifications for many, many decades become was not answered.
House set to vote on marijuana legalization
"1000 representatives will vote on legalizing marijuana next month. The more act would remove cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act and raise some cannabis criminal records.

"Representative Tom McClintock from California how are you Sir by mark thanks for having me hi Tom McClintock you've been very outspoken against these iron fisted lockdowns and you're very concerned about what's happening to the people in your state in the country the economy businesses and job someone to give me an opportunity to explain well it's pretty simple all we have now plunged tens of millions of Americans into unemployment and poverty and in the process set in motion events that are going to create many poverty related deaths in the future there's a study a few years ago by Columbia University the noted that about four and a half percent of all deaths in this country are probably related we have just plunged tens of millions of Americans into that condition and nobody seems to be counting those deaths that we are setting in motion right now in the calculus of this this radical idea of locking up an entire population in a free nation for fear that they might catch a a disease yes tell the rest of the country your governor in California he's really locked that stay down has any very much so and and of the the the the the toll on people's lives it is it is absolutely extraordinary R. three point two million Californians have lost their jobs as twenty percent of the state workforce less than half a Los Angeles county residents now have jobs and who's not Newsome put in charge of the re opening this socialist whack job Tom Steiner who's vowed to remake California society is quote a fair green and prosperous future E. S. and you know into it it doesn't appear the lockdowns doing all that great today and yesterday is exactly curve is not so flat right now is it exactly California ordered a complete lockdown as population back on March nineteenth now be established timeline from infection to death about twenty five days that would have been April thirteenth so question of California's radical internment measures were effective should we have expected to see a dramatic decline in deaths soon after that date the fact is we haven't on the contrary the worst daily death tolls that's far in this epidemic occurred in nine of the last eleven days after April thirteenth so every person who succumbed in these the worst days for fidelity's in this state so far every one of them would have contracted the disease after the shutdown took effect and if you look at some of the studies now others but professor out of Tel Aviv University Isaac Ben Israel he just published a paper comparing the case of mortality curves in those countries that border district lockdowns like ours and countries that kept their economies open like Sweden and he's found no significant difference in the in the mortality curves yes and yet I notice our politicians keep attacking sweet and I've looked at Sweden to why they keep attacking Sweden Sweden's numbers are relatively comparable to ours and they're gonna have this herd immunity well before we do how did I think they're attacking because Sweden is demonstrating what a free nation should do in response to an epidemic like this yes why is the governor of Georgia coming under such a vicious attack for the same reason of the same reason Christine Ohlman South Dakota is coming under attack and by the way been Israel's not the only but a statistician who is noted that there's really no difference of a statistician out of the Kentucky state university Wilford Riley I just published a paper looking at the differences between the states like California that completely destroyed their economies and states like South Dakota they kept their economies open and once again no significant statistical difference in the course of the viruses it runs its course yes interleave enough data now Tom McClintock to tell us the populations that are really threatened the populations that aren't in they say follow the science but they're not following the sites these these governors are they were exactly right here in California we've had to serology studies I think you'd mentioned earlier today Stanford for Santa Clara county S. C. for LA county both of them looked at the actual prevalence of the infection they calculated case the tally right that's the percentage you actually die from the disease and what they found is it's a fraction of what the so called experts were telling us and what all of these dire models were based upon the experts told us that it was at least a one percent fatality rate it turns out somewhere between twelve one hundred and twenty seven one hundredths of one percent that's the equivalent of a bad flu season yes and yet when doctors found she says this is seasonal there's going to be another way that's really a consequence of his his promoted decisions isn't that is everybody how one place pretty much as much of the bad people as possible well when you have so many people who don't have the virus they're going to get the virus at some point I'd say exactly and and ultimately could not be just as easily regulated by by individuals if you don't feel safe don't leave your house if if you feel safe leaving your house with a mask well then wear a mask if you don't feel comfortable getting.

U. someone who was very unusual to listen to in the Intel hearings I'm that's a big deal but they they just chose to leave it there in their hurry why I'm other than just getting this done before Nadler kicks off his thing I can't think of any other reason why they're in such a hurry but you know if it's been noted that the Democrats are very fearful of letting the impeachment dragon due the twenty twenty presidential primary or it's going to pull you know several US senators off the campaign trail they don't want that person very obvious reasons so we'll we'll pick up on this in a couple of.

"Welcome to it's all political the San Francisco Chronicle's political podcast. I'm Joe Air Foley the chronicle senior political writer and today in the podcast we are talking to one of these seven Republican Congressman California Congressman Tom McClintock Hebrew percents sort of a a rural and exurban district that runs from around Lake Tahoe South to near Fresno and even though he's one of the most conservative members of Congress I always like talking to him because once in a while breaks from the party on something like he wants to lead is marijuana federally everyone and we also talked about what he thinks about what's going on in Turkey and Peach Mint and whether Americans should trust the intelligence community here's my conversation with Tom. McClintock Congressman Tom McClintock welcome to it's all political will how're you doing you are speaking to us from our nation's capital correct right now I'm very excited to have you on always enjoyed talking to you because you are someone who is not afraid to go against your party sometimes and I know we talked about this in the past but for example you were the you were for the legalisation of cannabis far before every other Republican even though you are no fan of marijuana itself that it's one of one of the greatest endorsements I've ever read when you a bigger fan of freedom and responsibility that every grown adult that takes manage their own lives and make their own decisions frankly not enough trouble running my own life without trying to run everybody else all right so I wanted to get your take on a couple of things going on right now and and some longstanding issues to first of all this week I believe you will post resolution to oppose president trump's decision to withdraw stripes from the Kurdish region of northern Syria now passed the house three fifty four to sixty so you're you're one of the sixty why did you oppose that all of very simply because I have long believed that we need to practice a very fundamental principles when it comes to committing our our troops into harm's way and they were principles that guide at our country until all the Korean War number one we don't attack another nation let's we're attacked and when we're forced into a war congress has to formally declare it and put the full resources of the country behind it and get it over with as quickly as possible we did do that after the attack timber eleventh and the result is we have now been mired in two decades of aimless irresolute policy of ah we've sacrificed thousands of of a brave young American troops we squandered trillions of dollars a out of our of our national treasury and this this was the situation that that Donald trump inherited from George W Bush and Barack Obama he had some very bad alternatives and I you think he chose the least bad of yes it does create a military vacuum they're thrown in Turkey and Russia remnants of the Islamics state it's driven the Kirsch to to ally with the regime of El Assad None of that's desirable but I don't think any of that justified keeping American troops in harm's way when we don't have a strategy or a commitment to accomplish anything other than continuing stalemate and if Congress So fervently object to the order to withdraw troops that had never authorized the first place maybe it ought to have the courage to authorize those troops but it does so do you think it was a good idea to to bring those troops home as you alluded to it it could lead to resurgent of Isis it could but I think it was the least of the bad alternatives the president had don't forget this is something he promised the American people that he would do and the fact is that the Kurds and the Turks have been enemies for centuries and I don't see any American interests the the justifies maintaining US troops in the crowd inspire what do you think could why not just do nothing there why not just leave the troops there and you know prevent well that's that's what we've been doing of for many years now and and is caused a continuing stalemate you know you you we never had a commitment to victory we never had a the the will put the full might and fury of our country behind our troops when we put them in harm's way that's not fair to them I I just have a very old fat Russian view of of of war Try to do everything you can to stay out of it and when you have no other choice you commit all of your resources and get it over with just as quickly as you possibly can you're not concerned that this is a something to be done to be friendlier with Russia in to help them out in any way like this has been the least Russia friendly administration of the last four or five so I don't I I think it was fulfilling a promise you made to the American people in two thousand sixteen that he would stop these endless wars and I I said I don't think there was a good alternative I think he chose the least bad of the alternative Seattle what should be done next there what would you like to see done next in that region I don't see a vital a an American interest so vital in that region would require the committee eh of of troops that may change as events change but at the moment I think that we need to regroup of And when we engage we engage the economic sanctions president has proposed and through diplomatic channels but I think this business of trying to be the policeman of the world as as proven closely both in American lives in American treasure and you'd like to see the troops come home from Afghanistan as as well I imagine yes we have no commitment to for unconditional surrender of the opposition and we didn't we do not have got involved in the first place Anyway you know when when you when you go back take a look at Afghanistan and look at the the Bush administration's response was wholly inadequate That was as an attack by the Taliban government of Afghanistan using HAS ITS AGENCY The al Qaeda Organization of that required the president to come to Congress next day and ask for a declaration weren't required the Congress to put the full resources of the country behind that n-i-l-l-a-s the Taliban regime in Afghanistan had we done that I don't think we would be dealing with world terrorism today because we would have caught the world Jason that would not have forgot but because we lacked the leadership in George W. Bush I think it was a terrible president the A- and the commitment of the Congress to put the full resources of the country behind the foods with placed over there we simply made a bad situation and I say worse but but certainly did not resolve of the situation there and then two years later turned around and attacked Iraq without provocation. Asian That had nothing to do with the attack on nine eleven my I just wondered more lives and and more this discount cross my mind but I think this may be one of other than cannabis I think this may be one of two areas where you agree with Barbara Lee your where you know she famously was the only person not to vote for the authors nation for war would you would you have been with Barbara Leave Barley McClintock against the authorization to go to War I think for some very different reasons also obviously but you know I said at the time if Congress can't you know what they did instead of a declaration or was a authorization for the use of it terry force and I wasn't in the Congress then I said at the time was if you cannot bear to call it a war then that is nature's way of warning you're not prepared age one and you know we've been trying to wage sort of wars since Korea and they've not worked out well if there is such a thing we're really bad at the we are and and and we ought to go back to policies that served our country well for several centuries and that is as I said we'd only attack a foreign country attack us when we do we put everything we've got bided get over with as quickly as possible I wanted to ask about the current impeachment investigation on stay which is the day before we recorded this acting chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said there are three issues that explain why the administration held up aid to Ukraine and among the mm-hmm was that the president trump demanded that the cranium officials investigate the issue of the Democratic National Committee Server and and and what in the jamming of the two thousand sixteen election Mulvaney also said quote did he also mentioned to me in passing the corruption related DNC server absolutely no question about it also said that's why we held up the money later yesterday also he walked that back do you have a problem with what movie said there initially I've not actually seen his entire press conference remarks yet so I can't comment directly on that but I I can't say that I think the constitution gives the prison they sold authority to conduct our diplomatic affairs and it gives him the responsibility to see that the laws are faithfully executed so he's got every responsibility and every authority to request a foreign government to cooperate and getting to the bottom of possibly corrupt interactions between officials in our government and there's the fact that Haydn's candidate for president currently certainly doesn't shield him from investigations involving wrongdoing while he was vice president after all the trump was subjected to invest sedation while he was a candidate on the basis of false opposition research commissioned by the Clinton Campaign so I think the relevant question is is whether there was probable cause auction investigation with respect to the trump investigation is beginning to appear there wasn't we're GONNA a lot more about the follow up investigations when the Horowitz Syndrome investigations are complete time will tell now the reason I want to ask you about this is you you've long developed a reputation as a fiscal hawk you oh you're all you watch every dollar where the federal tax dollars taxpayer dollars go so how is it appropriate for trump to hold up aid four eighty is taxpayer money to Ukraine INEX- to investigate a theory that kind of runs counter to all all the intelligence agencies of said that were you crying was not behind way actually as you know there are very active investigations a by John Durham and US attorney ah involving these charges so certainly not basis a lot more is that unfolds but don't forget you have new administration elected in the Ukraine.

Mueller Won't Say It, but Trump Clearly Obstructed Justice
"Just moments away from round two former special counsel Robert Muller taking questions from lawmakers this time on the intelligence committee we are just moments away from that committee hearing to convene on with a K. G. as Ron Owens cages John Ross manning KGO as Pat Thurston and I wanted to bring up something before we go back to the committee obstruction of justice and the argument by some that well he wasn't successful so it's not a crime zero that was clearly laid out you know I'm all or answering yeah opposite that obstruction of justice is still a crime even after he was unsuccessful let me point out the Republicans keep raising this issue of underlying crime Richard Nixon did not order order the Watergate break in Richard Nixon ultimately fell because of a cover up of the argument that is being made as the president attempted to obstruct and cover up by the way a Dorian just sent me an email I feel I'm very informed I haven't missed a beat about trump I just hope the next election legitimately removes them I would prefer impeachment talk about a guy in the middle there it is the way I saw the it just south of the Hank Johnson from fifteen hundred on each side yeah the problems have been like Barry Goldwater said you know carpet off letter flowed out of the ocean yeah as to what Pat thirst and said earlier you don't you said you're more interested in hearing the questioning from the intelligence committee because they're going to focus on the Russia meddling which is important and multi even stated that was the most important thing that Americans the smaller all hearing give the reason yeah right well I is that the reason well this afternoon yeah I will be put on the spot and I think that one of the the reason that I want this more so we've talked a lot and I think the American people have been exposed a lot to the questions about obstruction although witness tampering with something that Miller also said occurred but the the rush investigation people just passed through the first part of this because there wasn't he did state that he there was insufficient evidence to prove a criminal conspiracy there was so much more there there's so much in there about the actual collusion the cooperation that was taking place the soliciting of information that was coming from the trump campaign there was so much in there and it didn't in his in his opinion rise to the level of a criminal conspiracy for which he could be charged but there's an awful lot in there that would indicate it either to my mind on ethical behavior corrupt behavior of behavior that was certainly collusion even if it didn't rise to that level and so I'm anxious for them to get that information out so that the American public here's an interesting you say that because it was inconclusive as you said but then the but then on the second part of the mall the report it really zeros in on the it was not structured as Jolla's so this seems like there's more there because it was more complicated it was mainly in lab so that whether it succeeds or not that's ridiculous I mean if up obstruction of justice is what you do if you want to file for impeachment the question of whether the Russians coopted the election influence the election is a critical question and I want to remind you the president of the United States to this day denies that the Russians influence the election and the president was asked if he trusted of the word of Latimer putting or American intelligence agencies and I also want to remind you that there is an active report this morning that Dan coats who is the DCI may be removed and who was the president consulting with on that but Devin newness so there's a lot there are a lot of layers former Republican has that's right there are a lot of layers here now but all right people need to keep their eye on one ball the Russians interfered in the American election there is no question about that even in addition to that John it's that the Russian interference would not have possibly been as extensive or as successful as it was without the cooperation of the trump campaign format once approached right once approached you know had day immediately gone to the FBI some of these efforts could have been thwarted some of this information could potentially have been made public the American people could have been aware so this I think also goes to a potential impeachment are they load are they starting to get in yeah Adam shooter yeah Schiff is taking his seat I thought it was interesting congressman Tom McClintock from the Sacramento area had an interesting way to sum up Muller's report and I want to play that for you here although weak up not you can't put it up okay never I was gonna try and play for my own computer and that's not going to be working but I talked about that Robert Muller ringing the doorbell and then dropping his report on fire and running away so I thought it was a great way to describe it no matter what side you're on yeah I know it's it's to the biggest of the four hundred plus pages into that run on hers needs to do something right exactly and that's coming from a Republican and it's it's really important to realize that fact now I'm looking at the at the screen and we're going to bring you the sound but Adam Schiff is about to call together the Senate of the house intelligence committee and this will focus on the question of collusion cooperation Russian interference in the election and I will be fascinated by how the president tweets in response to what we are going to hear over the next several hours it is going to be an awful lot that he's not going to answer in this regard to because in addition to the Russians there were a number of other people who were not indicted and so those are individuals that the justice department has told him he should not be talking about including you know the don junior and I can't remove us but there are other people who are Erik Hicks was brought up in the last one though when he responded to that request just last week hope picks was subpoenaed refused to comply with a subpoena right because she lied well but whatever the reason the president extended executive what he it's not exactly a privilege she center it's some new myth right about executive authority to prevent her from testifying yes and let me tell you the committee was not happy about that the Democrats anyway well what if thirty four I think was a thirty four Russians that were indicted I'm not more than two dozen what yeah thirty by two thousand thirty six thirty seven I mean yeah thirty seven seven entitled and from big did more than two dozen indicted Russian right you know no matter what the Russians are going to interfere with this next election to I'm sure they already on that what what we didn't hear they call John show every night signal right it just goes all the way to Russia what we didn't hear it was the voice of errands that plea is the assistant special counseling you may this afternoon because I believe that he is going to be sworn beings at least that's the anywhere but wasn't enough for I was hearing this wasn't that Miller may yes trump is really mad about that that was one of the things he also tweeted about was the fact that they were going to allow him to even be in the hearing he said it was never agreed that Robert Muller could use one never Trumper lawyers help with his answers Donald Trump has no right at all talking about agreement but he says it was specifically not agree to and I would never have agreed to it wasn't matter what he says why I think he needs to agree to it because the president of the United States this president of United States seems to have an over inflated view of the power of the president and certainly when you consider three co equal branch of government as angry as the president may be at the Congress and the judiciary he can't interfere it's interesting that what was not gotten into Israeli why Mahler didn't somehow insist that he get the testimony from a president trump himself right nobody asked why did why I mean that resonate very basic question right now and I think he would have said no but I'd like to get that he wouldn't answer but I would like to get that on the red white that may still be asked let me remind you the fundamental question the subpoena was the meeting in trump tower which goes to the heart of what we're going to do in the Senate and the house intelligence committee so that may yet come up in short we are going to be riveted for the next two hours plus to the testimony before the house intelligence were you guys surprised that the Republicans are using as an argument the fact that Muller could not indict a sitting president as department of justice policy in kind of twisting that into an argument that he didn't do his job let's hear from congressman Jim Jordan who try to contrast the charging decisions between members of the campaign and the president charge regains for false statements you charge Paul metaphor for false statements charge Michael Cullen with false statements you charge Michael Flynn a three star general was false statements but the guy who puts the countries to this whole saga starts at all for three years we live this now he lies and you guys don't charge and I'm curious as to why well I can't get into it and and it's obvious I think if we can't get into charging decisions that wasn't about trump if I'm pretty sure is that was not about Donald Trump that was about that professor who he who he asserted Jordan asserted was the beginning of all of this that it was the professor who gave the information about the top the list who then relayed the information right to the an Australian yeah so it wasn't about that but they did that was it did seem to be part of their strategy that they would twist the idea of the LC a memo that would not that Muller cited that would not allow him to indict and you know John I don't know if we have time for this but you know I've talked about this extensively that LC memo really is not a it's not to the constitution it's not the law and it's not just a policy just says that the president cannot be indicted it doesn't say in the about when it's not I don't know if it's not finding do you understand I I can make the argument I it's an LLC opinions about any informed playing which which the Attorney General watered enforced both Attorney General spot one of error the deputy Attorney General Mister Reznor signed it and so that's the problem it was an impediment which well I think is wrong I think it's wrong in law I do too John I do too and and you know I think when you look at what happened with the Bill Clinton and the independent counsel there's a Ken Starr he certainly did divide by that understand if you read Lee on shore skis book which is well worth reading he talks about why he did what he did and then remember that during the Clinton scandal in in two thousand actually the justice department simply reinforce reinforce that but let me also point out that two days before he left office Bill Clinton admitted that he obstructed justice that he'd committed perjury and his fine if you will was that he was disbarred in Arkansas disbarred before the Supreme Court had to pay Paula jones' legal expenses and he did it Bill Clinton did it because he was told if he didn't the minute he left the inaugural platform he would be indicted so for Bill Clinton it was a matter of of saving his frankly thank god that they'll bring up hope picks again in this discussion because the whole thing about hope Hicks was because she was involved in these emails that were related to the trump tower midday cations Miller is coming in a lot less so okay gotcha yeah we we are yeah just about to begin the second hearing with Robert Muller just moments away Robert Muller has just walked into the committee hearing room for the house intelligence committee Adam Schiff will swear him in and I will be followed by analysis with KGO is John Robb and Pat thirst and Ron Owens and that mark

Santa Rosa will have a high of eighty six. Welcome to forum. I'm Katie or in today for Michael Krasny. As part of our election twenty eighteen coverage. We're joined now by the candidates for the fourth US congressional district, which is centered in California's gold country, Republican incumbent Tom McClintock has a reputation as an anti-tax and limited government conservative the American conservative union rates McClintock as the state's most conservative congressman first time candidate Jessica Morris and northern California native has worked for USA ID in Iraq and later at the State Department. She prioritizes issues such as fire prevention policy and protection of public lands. Welcome so much, Jessica Morris and Tom McClintock. Thanks for having us create to me here. So let's start with you congressman McClintock just tell us. Why are you running for reelection to continue the work that I've been embarked on in the congress to reduce the burdens that taxes and regulations of placed on the economy. We've made enormous progress in Washington the last couple of years doing that. And we're seeing a remarkable economic expansion is result. Meanwhile, I chair the federal lands subcommittee of natural resources where we have been putting a lot of attention into restoring our forests to health we are dealing with laws that have made the scientific management of our force all but impossible, and we're now seeing the Sierra carrying three and four times, the timber density that the land can support in that crowded condition. Our trees are no longer able to sustain natural of stresses like drought disease pestilence and are ultimately consumed by catastrophic wildfire. And that work is very important. As is the work. We're doing on the budget to restore our national economy and the prosperity that it assures. And MS Moore's what about you. Why are you running? You know, our community deserves a partner in an advocate to breakdown red tape barriers and bring resources back to our district and to actually fight for the real challenges and solutions to those challenges at the real people in our community face so often our political system has become hyper partisan and congressman McClintock is an example of somebody who voted with his party over ninety five percent of the time that votes consistently against our community. And this is my home community, you know, my families five generations from the Sierra. We still have the original homestead land. And I grew up serving our our country all over the world, and whether I was serving in Iraq or with the State Department in India, I always knew that what I was working for Republican president or a democratic president. I was working for the American people. And right now, our community deserves somebody who will work for us. Whether that's improving our healthcare, making sure that our commies are thriving, and that kids are getting trained for the jobs that are demanded here. Improving our forest health and actively working on creating jobs by improving our. Environment. You both mentioned the forest in the Sierra as you probably know, a new U N report issued today finds that the worst effects of climate change will actually be felt in the coming decades in California, some say, we're already seeing the effects with these wildfires congressman McClintock, I'll start with you. What is your take on climate change leading to bigger fires? And what are some of the steps that the federal government could possibly take to mitigate some of these fires? Well, there's no question that global temperatures warming on and off since the last ice age of the question is what are we going to do about them? If we're looking at warmer temperatures and less precipitation that means a couple of things number one. We've got to match our timber dance to the ability of the land to support it single pine tree with a five inch diameter requires about fifty gallons of water a day to remain healthy overcrowd-. I mean, dead forests in the other issue is water storage. If we're not going to be able to store as much water in the mountains as snow in the future. That means we've got to be building new reservoir. So that we can store the surplus water behind dams. The response of the left is well raise taxes on on fossil fuels. Well, the state of California is doing that. And the result is Californians pay one of the heaviest prices for trista in the country and one of the steepest prices for gasoline in the country, and it hasn't had no effect on a forest health or climate. May I follow up with that the legislate? The US legislature has failed to renew the land and water conservation. Find which is meant to assist in preserving developing and assuring accessibility to outdoor resources for recreation and conservation, what are your views on that? Why hasn't congress renewed that UCF to be renewed? But I do think that we need to start asking ourselves. If why are we Quiring new public lands when we cannot take care of the lands. We already own I put that question to the Obama National Park Service director several years ago, and he said his preference would be first to. Spend those moneys to take care of the land. We already own including billions of dollars of maintenance backlogs in the national parks, MS Morris to you. What do you feel is the role of congress in managing these lands and mitigating the effects of climate change? First of all we have to acknowledge that climate change is real and that has caused by humans, and that's one of the failings of congressman McClintock. He spends a lot of time talking about the ice age and the Jurassic era, but we have to focus on the present. You know, when when President Trump out of the climate Paris climate agreement congressman McClintock tweeted out, congratulations for pulling out of the clippers climate agreement. We have to support working families. But I always ask what about the working families who depend on our five billion dollar your ski industry as one of the largest employers in our district, and when our snow level has gone from roughly six thousand seven thousand feet in the last decade that industry one of our largest employers is disappearing one of the fastest growth. Industries in our entire district is renewable and green. Energy not fossil fuels. We have thirteen thousand clean energy jobs in our district, including five thousand solar jobs, which were just impacted by these tariffs. We need to take active and proactive steps on climate and a lot of that impacts our district directly because in our community. We are facing forest. Fires were facing beetle killer facing drought, and these are impacting our community every single day. And so rather than rather than saying there's nothing that can be done about it. We need to take proactive steps in a huge part of that is actively funding wildfire prevention, but congressman Clinton voted against eighty one billion dollars in legislation. That would have helped thinner forest staffer for service and giving us the tools and the resources to restore healthy forest density and help mitigate and prevent wildfires. He's actively making choices that are endangering our community every single day, and we've had enough I need to respond to that Jessica's referring to the huge spending Bill of the omnibus Bill that increased overall federal spending. On the discretionary side by eighteen percent in a single year. That is putting us on a collision course with trillion dollar deficits which threatened the the financial security of our country. And I also need to point out that the of the Paris climate accord, the Jessica supports, and I oppose would have cost about four hundred thousand American jobs estimated cost the economy well over a trillion dollars, and by their own estimates would only have resulted in about seven tenths of one degree decline in temperature over a century. Meanwhile, the United States has actually reduced its fossil emissions far more than Europe. But not because government regulation, rather because of fracking has made natural gas so much cheaper and more readily available and again, the proactive measures the Jessica's referring to our massive taxes on your gasoline on your electricity affecting the quality of life and the quality of our economy for many years to come. Well, let's talk about the gas taxes because I know that is something here in California. There's an effort. On the November ballot to repeal an increase gas tax that was passed by the legislature in November. Ms Moore, you've actually support that measure meaning you are in favor of a repeal. Know what I am in favor of is in infrastructure funding from congress, California voters are going to decide on the gas tax. And what I am seeing the gas taxes. Symptom of the gas tax is a symptom of congress failing to pass an infrastructure Bill over the last decade in our district. We have people who are probably stuck right now. Listening to us on the radio at the highway sixty five eighty interchange outside of Roseville that qualifies for federal investment in improving our infrastructure, but that investment has not come in. Because congressman McClintock has failed to pass an infrastructure Bill highway fifty collapsed. Many of our districts out we have four counties that border Yosemite. Those counties only get their revenue from the number of vehicles registered, and yet they still have when you have eighteen thousand vehicles registered but five million cars going on their roads into the park every year, they need support. And that should mean our federal taxes that we are already paying should come back to our district and actively work for us. But the reason we. Haven't been getting infrastructure funding and support for our community is because congressman McClintock has failed to advocate for that support for us. Jessica there you go. Again, we brought about six hundred eighty five million dollars of local projects into this district and respect to highway sixty five we have the funding for it. We are office actually pushed it through approval by the army corps of engineers. The hold up right now is litigation filed by the Sierra Club, which happens to be supporting you in opposing me. And let me get back to the other questions. You have not yet answered do you support or oppose prop six to repeal? The massive gas tax increase the legislatures of a put put into place, I actively support prop six to repeal that tax. Where do you stand? I think I just answered that. But we yes or no. I support federal infrastructure funding and the California voters are going to make a decision on propsects and the California voters are going to make a decision on you. So you're not taking a position on that. And a lot of other very key issues. We're supposed to trust you. And yet the superior court struck down every one of your ballot designations as being untrue or misleading and the democratic secretary of state struck down those for the general election. So. The one thing about being in congress is you've got to take stands on issue. Congressman let me jump in here. Bring it back to this gas tax one of the issues that we know we are dealing with is that the national fund to improve the highways throughout the state has been essentially bankrupt for the past decade, or so so what is the federal government doing about that to what I am trying to do about that..

"He talking this way about healthcare and people serious health issues so i think healthcare is an important issue here and that say rural broadband so incredibly enough where a couple of hours away from silicon valley but when it comes to internet access we're just years apart and behind you know even in our most developed counties here in our district hassle evidence cannot access high speed internet at any price can't get it we have an entire county america the county where at least as twenty sixteen there virtually no residential customers who could get high speed internet and the problem i mean it's precisely in more rural outlying areas where people need to be able to access telemedicine in need to be able to take college classes online you know frankly even for social isolation can really help seniors that are out of areas to be able to skype with their grandkids and let's not even talk about small businesses i have run into so many people including republicans who tried to start small businesses at areas where they just can't get good intimate service and it's really hard to have to pay much more that we pay the more suburban parts of the district for worse service so they're higher costs for them it ends up taking them a lot of extra time to basic tasks and they're really limited in the types of advertising promotions they can do for their business correspondence you know with people who might wanna come visit them or with potential clients so i think if we're really serious about economic development about educational opportunity making sure people in rural areas have a level playing field and have fair shotting head if they work hard we have too much more at the federal level to bring high speed internet out and trying to rural community and i think it's flat out offensive that tom mcclintock had actually voted against federal support for rural broadband least twice i have one less question for you in that is i know you have three little kids i heard her two young sons myself and i know what a.
