It's like, you know, Cancel culture is dumb. And you know, we're not rooting for that sort of nonsense. But I am old enough to remember as you are. Pat Trent Lott, speaking of Tristram Thurman's 1/100 birthday party, and when he you know, he honored his career and said some platitudes about the guy being nice and he In a much less sensitive era. Not only lost his job, his political career was destroyed. Now we're at the era where freaking Aunt Jemima can't be on your way of pancakes. Spokespeople being pulled off the shelf, and Joe Biden is going to get a pass for eulogizing a cake, a member. How is this possible? We probably will never know what Joe Biden and Robert Byrd talked about in private. We know that they served together in the Senate for multiple decades. Some of that time, Robert Byrd was an overt racist. Other times he was only a racist in private. But one thing is for sure. If Robert Byrd were around for his own funeral, he would've been proud that he was honored by Joe Biden, a man who constantly says things Like this.

Pelosi not yet ready to transmit Trump's impeachment to the Senate
"For the past several weeks. There's been one burning question dominating this saga. When Will Nancy Pelosi? The speaker of the house transmit the articles of impeachment to the Senate and therefore launched the trial process in the Senate. While this morning Speaker Pelosi finally addressed at that point. Take a listen now in terms of impeachment. You'll keep asking me the same question. I keep giving you the same answer. As I said right from the start art we need to see that the arena in which we are sending our managers is that too much to ask of course addressing that point in an answering that question or two different things. A Pelosi later added that she's not holding onto the articles indefinitely and that she would probably transmit them soon soon. I've got to fantastic guests to help me make sense of all of this political gamesmanship in a few minutes will be talking with CNN. National Security and legal analysts. Susan Hennessy but I I'm joined by my colleague. CNN Politics Congressional reporter. Alex Rogers Alex. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thanks so much for me so it seems to me. After days. Days Days of stasis on this story we did learn in the last twenty four hours several things one as I just said speaker. Pelosi said she's likely to transmit these soon she's not going to hold onto them forever. To President. Trump actually asserted yet again today. He's opened. Witnesses named some witnesses. He's interested in of course. Course which are total non starters For the Democrats in terms of Adam Schiff or Joe Biden or hunter Biden or the whistle blower but is has said and he's going to really leave this to the Senate. We learned that Mitch McConnell the majority leader in the Senate went to the White House and briefed the president on what the contours of this trial is going to look like. So it sounds like the president has more information about Mitch. McConnell's vision of how this trial is going to play out then speaker. Pelosi does which is why she's still hanging onto the articles as we're recording this at least and Finally we've learned that there seems to be a strategic divide going on between the president and and his advisors and or some of his advisers and certainly the Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell in terms of whether or not he wants some very vociferous defenders from the House Republican Conference To join in defending his case in the Senate McConnell of course worried that Too partisan partisan of abroal may upset the apple cart with some of the moderate center. Republicans that they need to keep on board with the plan here so all of those. Those things have emerged in the last twenty four hours and yet Nancy Pelosi is still holding onto the articles of impeachment. What does that mean soon when you expect her to send these to the Senate or she said today today I'll send them over when I'm ready and we're still trying to figure out what leverage she has Senator Majority Leader Mitch? McConnell said yesterday that she has none he has the votes. It's a simple majority devote Democrats are hoping that there are four Republicans to join them. But now we've talked to Susan Collins. Lisa Murkowski Mitt Romney and all of them are on Mitch McConnell. Donald Seidel Miss. So we're wondering here. What Nancy Pelosi is looking for if there's any possible signal that she could get from The Republican leader. She says that she just wants to see the rules. Mitch McConnell says let's just go back to the nineteen ninety nine precedent under Clinton and. Just run with that now she. It seemed to me when she walked into a press conference. Today Should two main message point. She wanted to hit when it came to the issue of impeachment. One was. She's not buying this whole Mitch. McConnell nineteen ninety nine Clinton enroll. She thinks he's not portraying how those were set up namely the Clinton rules were devised in a bipartisan agreement. And I think there was one hundred hundred nothing vote supporting them. In the United States Senate That was hammered out with the blessing of the leaders. Trent Lott and Tom Daschle. Nothing like that is going on with McConnell when Schumer right now is Pelosi's point number one so she doesn't By his argument that this is playing by the Clinton rules. That was one thing she wanted to drive home but number two it seems she wanted to sort of list Her reasons that she thinks she's been victorious in this decision to hold onto the articles articles namely that it has put the issue of documentation and witnesses front and center in a way that if the articles had immediately gone over in December. Maybe they weren't. What do you make of that? I mean her point is that there's a number of witnesses who have not been Who have refused to testify and the Clinton Peterman process? All of those witnesses had already talked before that that evidence was already out there But the thing is that she right now is losing not only those moderate Republicans Republicans at your needs but also Democrats. There's a number of them who've said in the past couple of days that let's just let's just get this started senator. Dianne Feinstein said if we're going to do it she she she should send them over. I don't see what good delay does. She's later walk that back. Other Congressmen have also Adam Smith at today on CNN. Basically said let's transmit these articles goals that's during the Senate trial and then he later said I misspoke wait. I missed how Senator Feinstein walked back to her comments. What did she say? Because it's all those comments my eyes widen so I I missed the walk back. She said today that those comments are now being taken out of context okay. I don't know if that's a real walk back. They're not out of context are they. I don't know vow. The the thing though is what does holding the articles now do for the Democrats. Are they really going to be able to change the rules. Or they can get these witnesses upfront. No Mitch McConnell has the votes. And he's ready to go he's made that crystal clear what What do you make of this concern concern that? McConnell has apparently expressed that Having some very vocal House Republican conference members who were Lord Diehard trump supporters at all costs be part of his defense may upset the apple cart of sort of the Republican unanimity. That you just described that he's been able cobbled together. How is how big of a concern do you sense? Is this for McConnell. So we have some reporting from Sarah Westwood Phil Mattingly came out today. There's there's this struggle between some of president trump's allies who think that a legalistic argument by Patsy. Baloney the White House counsel so is Not going to be good enough. You need to win this. It's it's not only trial but it's somewhat theater have your most for syphilis. Allies Congressman Jim Jordan Congressman Mark Meadows. Some of these people who can articulate the president's argument in different style. Then you also have Senator Mitch McConnell's view. It appears where those those people are going to turn off exactly the Republicans that you need. You Need Susan Collins. Lisa Murkowski the people people in the middle so the president right now is receiving this conflicting advice. And we don't know yet. I don't think the decision has been made on who is going to defend the president and the trial yet. Yeah no we have not heard that decision we know that Pets Bologna and his team. The White House counsel on his team Have put together a plan and that there seems to be one but we don't yet know exactly who will be doing the defending of the president. And I think that the president who we know consume so much Fox News and sort of has this echo chamber constantly feedback loop in in. His mind doesn't always necessarily think the way McConnell does about Are we just doing a full on brawl with the Democrats here or is there work to be done with your own party here and McConnell's clearly trying to make the case Mr President don't lose sight. Yes you're going to be acquitted but you've got to still keep your party on board. I think right now if you just run the nineteen ninety nine Clinton trial rules you will see each side making their argument and then a couple of days of questions from the senators and then you vote whether to dismiss the whole thing right then there or then to also get into the witnesses that Democrats think will bolster their case my final question for you before we go to break you say that Democrats will boast of their case. What about the fact that Donald Trump is still out there saying he wants them? Witnesses I Mitch. McConnell sort of in a no witnesses camp. He doesn't necessarily want to see Joe Biden or Hunter Abidin or the whistle blower called. So there's a difference there too is they're not of course There are some Republicans who want to see honor Biden. They WANNA Have I think Senator Ron Johnson said this week the full gamut of witnesses. But you've also seen Senator Susan Collins who you know really the crucial senator here say a that it would be inappropriate inappropriate for president trump to say to China investigate on our Biden Susan Collins once witnesses But we we don't really think that means also hundred I think we've that means you know people with firsthand evidence other people who testified before the house. Yeah actual impertinent witnesses to this What these articles of impeachment are about and therefore pertinent to this trial? Alex let's take a pause and our conversation for the moment legal analysts Susan. Hennessy will join us right

"Guys up to. Ring. John metaxas. Show AS Roma's right now really really excited to have back on the program, our friend, Dick Morris, dick, welcome back. Hey, Eric good speak here. And congratulations on your brand new book. This is exciting because it's a different kind of book for you. I think people have been longing for you to write about what you write about in this book, and you have frustrated those people by writing about what's going on in the news, and whatever book, you talk about some really juicy stuff from your past year dealings with the Clintons in detail. The title of the book, fifty shades of politics. What made you decide to write about what you write about in this book. Well, first of all a lot of people have been asking me, you know, how did I get into politics ahead? I need I lean become a political consultant. How did that become a Republican? And all that stuff. That's a big question right there. How did you become because everybody has watched this? And so yes, people I've been dying to get the inside story. So Finally, I guess we can. That night. Also while I was at added. Mike. With the Clintons pudding. Have never come out. And really for sure she wants, and and also might work in other countries where different countries around the world. That's how fourteen presidents or prime ministers getting less, and I've got some wonderful stories that no matter how many nice it's just gonna be a long time for for. You can get a lot of good people elected. But you're you're still not quite to the point where we can forgive you for getting Clinton elected. What are you gonna do about that? Right. Right. Well, I point out in the book that nineteen ninety six in particular, June, July and August. Was the last time in most recent time in American history that the parties for together, I LA accomplished. Gridlock, and that's pretty experience. Thank claim how it came about you passed hopefully was formally balance the budget for the next four years. We increase. You when you school? You're you're you're breaking up. I know you must be you must be on a cell phone. But a lot of people know the story, but a lot of people don't know this story. I remember it vividly. And it was an amazing thing when the term triangulation was thrown. Into the American cultural mix, you very wisely said to the president who'd been defeated soundly by Newt Gingrich in ninety four and did not have a Democratic Congress. Use very soundly advised him to do the prudent thing which was to work with his opponents. And of course, some of the greatest things the achievement of welfare reform. It was an amazing moment. And I think because of the Lewinsky scandal people forget about that. So you do write about this in the book. Sure. And they also tell a story about it. I was working with with Trent Lott who was my client for a long time. So we see Republican majority leader, and of course, with Bill Clinton. And so we set up the sort of triangulating Goshi -ation where I where I would shuttle positions back and forth between the president back the other way. And eventually, we cut deals on all these bills and at the gridiron dinner, which was the the annual roast where people get together and make fun of the president the president was there and Trent Lott was speaking majority leader. So we had a skittering rescued up in the audience putting my cell phone my year and cold transplant. He was on the podium and to answered the phone not now jacomb giving speech, and he has begun his speech and said we need to raise taxes we need to increase government spending. We've got to increase health insurance and. I said you're giving the wrong speech be giving the speech. I wrote for the president not the one I wrote for you. He moved over and gave a copy of his speech to Clinton who is sitting next to him and everybody laughed like hell, but the keyword Eric. I was able to persuade trends and the president that they were incumbents before they were Democrats Republicans. They would stand or false together president needs to get well because you just lost congress Gingrich revolution and the Republicans needed to get well because they just shut down the government were widely blamed for that. And they said the only way to get reelected as president and to get re elected to the Senate is via to get together and pass stuff even Republicans running for president. Even the Democrats running for congress. You got the United States incumbency and get this stuffed up and very effective argument worked really well. And it resulted in the passage of all these bills. Well, it's an extraordinary thing. There's so many things I want to ask you, you just mentioned the government shutdown sound, okay? Here is my. Yeah. A little better. It's a little bit better. We just wanna make make sure people get every syllable. You know, you just mentioned the government shutdown of ninety six that was infamously when the president began his dalliances with Monica Lewinsky, but obviously we have a government shutdown going on as we speak before we get more into your book. I'm just dying to hear from you. How you think this might play out and what this president ought to do. Because I am of the opinion that the wall is everything that there ought not to be a compromise on that. And that if he backs down we're going to I think people would rather see the government shutdown personally, I think that's less problematic than him caving on something that three years ago. He swore. He would do a thousand times I agree with you completely. I think it's going to happen. I think the interesting thing about the shutdown. He's nobody gives a damn it's a shutdown. Nobody cares about except for a few. People in Washington where it's heavily affecting the what Trump what Trump is was this past the appropriations bills for all important agencies have government that are not just down defense department, Medicare social security, Medicaid, education environment, all of those that were open for business. It's just a few agencies like HUD in some parts of the IRS. And of course, online security people and stuff that that is scarcely essential. When where there is a central functions. The government workers all working without pay. And we'll be paid as soon as the budget is passed. It's just three hundred thousand workers nonessential in non essential agencies would not working, and well, look, it's one thing to know the union members. Okay. It's one thing to know about the fact, you know, the facts, and you're you're laying them out. But these things tend not to hinge on the facts, they tend to hinge on the portrayal of the facts through the media and the media typically siding with with the Democrats portrays the shutdown as something horrendous. Whoever owns the shutdown loses. I've never seen anything as nakedly political. In other words, right now, I think I read it was yesterday's times. I can't remember where I read it. Maybe it was Fox News. But it's it's not that Pelosi or Schumer care about the issue. They care about winning politically. And the reason they won't give this Trump is because they don't want him to get a win. It's that make. Democrats are concealing a real weakness. They have which affect how these DACA dreamers tree treated, right because that'll be part of the deal for the wall. Right. And the Democrats say that we want to vote and to work in the US and Trump is saying I let him loose Fain work, but I'm not gonna let them become citizens and voters for that. They have to go back to their countries and get online, right? And these people are not coming over the border in order to vote in order to work. Right. And the Republicans have no problem with their working with their becoming citizens and Trump is exploiting that seen live democratic argument. Very effectively. He's gonna get a steal dreamers can stay in the world will be built. And I think he's gonna come out looking like like gangbusters and no. But when the media says the ship. Down so you, but he's feeling daily Lyle. You don't hear about other people don't talk about it? Maybe in Washington DC, they to or certain places border, right? But for the most part, this is so what shutdown and I think that it was so brilliantly conceived by Trump the jets are being pays the bills are being paid off credit is impaired. It's just the way shutting parts of the government. We don't care about right down. This is it's wonderful. I'm talking folks to Dick Morris, the great Dick Morris.

Mr. Rubio, Mr. Sanders, Mr. Schumer, the Senate floor is a very useful place to get a whole lot done your face to face with everyone. That's a great place to just do business. You have to go on over the floor. It's all done orally. Unlike the house where they put a car down the road, although of good, Tom talk to colleagues to do business. A lot of that on across the aisle to the origin of the majority leader physician. It's a little murky, but it kind of began to develop during Woodrow Wilson's administration the nine hundred thirteen when Woodrow Wilson became president. He had a PHD in. History and political science yet a lot of ideas about how government should be run. So he suggested that the leaders of the Democratic Party that they appoint a leader to be on the floor to represent him and his programs. They turn was a junior member who is well known nationally because he'd run for vice president and his name was John worth Kern from Indiana. And so Kern took that front row center seat that sat at ever since. So democratic leaders. Senator percents occupied as the leader of his party, the official title majority leader doesn't come around until the nineteen twenties. But really a current is doing the types of things opening things up. Introducing legislation calling bills up the calendar. That majority leaders have come to do when the Republicans came into office. They did the same thing. With Henry capitalized majority, and minority leaders had descendants had become very visible. Actors in the Senate where the power of is now, of course, greater there's always the majority leader, the minority leader, the majority leader's the only person that can bring a Bill to the floor. So that's a very powerful position to be an even if you dope successfully achieve your goal. You do successfully guide what what's possible, and what's likely to be talked about there's almost nothing in the rules of the Senate that give particular powers to the majority leader or the minority leader almost everything that they have come through the precedence rather than the rules Lyndon Johnson used to say that his chief power was the power persuasion. And a lot of what you have to do is what we call retail politics. You have to sit down one by one with all those senators to figure out what it is what they want and how you can get on board. We've had a lot of. Duets and senators through the years who've managed to do walk through that morning failed and come out with a very good record, the working relationship between Mansfield and Dirksen as they work their way through to build coalitions from the two parties in order to pass legislation to get nominations approved. It's almost like a masterclass of how leadership works in the Senate Trent Lott and Tom Daschle. They had some very difficult issues in yet. They maintained a really strong bond, and the strong friendship and again open lines of communication. They went through the Clinton impeachment trial together, they went through nine eleven and the anthrax attack on Capitol Hill together. And if you read the memoirs of both men, they both talk about how important that relationship was to to them during their leadership time, you certainly can have leadership teams that can be very effective. It's not easy. It's not an easy process, but they somehow have to find a way to work together. And it's a tremendous challenge. In January two thousand one the Senate, and it's leaders faced unprecedented challenges. Please come to order in the two thousand election. The result of the election was a Senate tied at fifty fifty marking the first time in Senate history that a fifty fifty split occurs. Democrat Tom Daschle majority leader for seventeen days until a new president and vice president are inaugurated so help me God. And following the swearing in. Vice President Cheney Republican Trent Lott takes the position as the Senate changes hands. Once again, the Republicans were in control, the organized, the Senate, the Republican senators chaired the committees. And then in may, you get hints of something that's going to happen. I will leave the Republican party and become an independent. Control of the Senate. For the first time in Senate history. The Senate was reorganized again under a.
"trent lott" Discussed on Opening Arguments
"I mean, something not quite that. Because I mean, that's absurd. But like something, you know, halfway to that level would probably right. I mean now it establish the intent. You know, obviously, I don't know why. I'm sorry. I brought that those really stupid. I would never have you know, the bad guy coming on national television announcing his corrupt intent would almost never happen. If not never sorry. I I'm bringing the showdown with these absurd hypothetical. I shouldn't even. Yeah. Yeah. So again, these are not the kinds of arguments that I am making here in response to believe me. I have I have more sophisticated arguments. Right. I I go through and there was one that I want to talk about because I promised incident Scalia was going to make an appearance, but you don't need a sophisticated level of legal arguments to refute the nonsense that that's in this memo, you need the basic principles, right? And the fact that this criminal statute requires you to prove enter requires you to prove that the president acted corruptly is all of the defense is all of the protection is all of the deterrence that you need to make sure that you know, this doesn't become a witch hunt for political gain. Right. Like how how could it? It just it it defies the imagination. And the fact that the memo doesn't block out those arguments is to me the most surprising aspect of this right like because I know when I write legal memoranda. I don't tend to write too many unsolicited legal memoranda. I paid my clients, and I like to write them when the the party receiving them intends to receive them and we'll read them, but but when I do, right. The the biggest way which you gain credibility is by accurately describing the state of the law. It's why we began the show with Andrew was wrong segment. Right. Like, I I never ever want. When I'm making my argument about the law means X, I always want to to to put that into the context of that look like they are there's a split among the circuits, right? There are these minority of cases that hold this way. Like, that's how you gain credibility. As a lawyer. And and this memo is it is it is devoid of nuance. It is devoid of any acknowledgement of the other side, the only people it could possibly persuade people like Mollie Hemingway. It does a hilarious thing. And I know we need to move on. That's a lot of memos. Give us a. Yeah. Highlight. In support of this view. And and again, I don't want to overstate this. So I'm gonna read from it. It looks to testimony given to the Senate related to the enactment of fifteen twelve c two and quotes Trent Lott and refers parenthetically to Orrin Hatch giving a couple of sentences on one reason of why they're voting for this act. So it quotes Trent Lott in a paragraph says you vote for the Bill because it quote would enact stronger laws against document shredding current law prohibits obstruction of Justice by defendant acting alone. But only if proceeding is pending and a subpoena has been issued for the evidence that has been destroyed or altered this section would allow the government to charge obstruction against individuals who acted alone. Even if the. Tempering took place prior to the issuance of grand jury subpoena. I think this is something we need to make clear, so we do not have a repeat of what we saw with the Enron earlier this year, isn't that exactly? The opposite of the case. Knock it. No. You're not nuts right at and and then it quotes Orrin Hatch saying it would close the loophole created by the obstruction statue can hold criminal saying like stop some idiot bar from writing a memo in the future that it might as well be that. He's like, hey, check out these quotes in support of my argument. So. One of the reasons why looking to individual statements from legislative history is a terrible idea is because unless you've looked at the entire record. Right. You you don't know like we have no way of knowing from this paragraph of Trent Lott, presumably he spoke for five minutes in support of the Bill. Right. What I just read took eleven seconds the parenthetical from Orrin Hatch. You know, took a minimum time..

"Your veteran leadership gameball to Malcolm Jenkins. And since Malcolm isn't here to accept the official kissed in. So let game ball. I'm understanding that bay official the official because we've done it for so many games. Yes. Correct. You'll you'll be accepting on his behalf as in Garowe of NBC sports. Philly tweeted out what I think is the most impressive now from Jenkins, stat info, signify, whatever you want, which is that since he joined the eagles twenty fourteen Jenkins has played five thousand two hundred forty eight of five thousand three hundred thirty nine defensive snaps while that's ninety eight point three percent of the defensive snaps that have existed since he got here. He is played five thousand two hundred forty eight. He has missed eighty nine and that's at various positions at safety nigga corner. Linebacker right at is insane. But nana's the N A N A S. Exactly say during draft time. It's still it's the whole season the best abilities availability. As specially when everybody else is hurt injure. Very nice that he's out there. And he give people organize mad. There are multiple times. I Jordan heck's out as well. You saw Nigel Brad him Malcolm Jenkins and then shadow KOMO GRA hills. Not even really a starter, but constantly putting players back with a the play. Where Nate Gary had no idea what he was doing and KOMO trying to shove him back into place was killing me there. Multiple plays bradtha or KOMO had to go pick up where Gary was supposed to be Gary annoyed. Gone. I was impressed by impressed by gray hill, especially for adding a good sound understanding of defensive abilities various linebacker role alignments, especially for doesn't really start. You see how the coaching staff likes him in? That regard on. It was nice each TIMMY Jernigan back on the field. He wasn't super impactful, but he wasn't TY McGill and so really huge booth because McGill and Trent Lott Hester saw less snaps and that self massive victory. The funny play for me, Ben twelve. Fifteen left seconds six. I'm pretty sure I know exactly what player talking about. Yeah. They tight end switch release or something the. Yeah. The tight incomes on a leak and Nick Gary's is looking at him. He's looking at the end he's right by any points to two KOMO news. Like already going into the flat for his threat and breida GMs like pointing at him in the middle of the play. Like, no, you're on him. Dude. You're on him. Just put it up on my on my time line at Mike O, kissed the NFL. There were so many different communication breakdowns kills me about that particular play is that the giants are in twenty two personnel. And they've got tight ends to Channon Sullivan side. There's no wide receiver out there and Sullivan sneaks way up into the formation offer run support. And what's the very first play the giants to on the next drive? It's the one you mentioned where they go ahead this time, I think they're in just pure twelve. I am I eleven they motion a player into give Sullivan the same. Luck. And this time they release them right up Sullivan zone and Sullivan's running into offer run support. It's play action. And that's the big space that Sullivan gives up. So yeah, it's not hard law. The story. Eight is not hard to pick on Channon Sullivan. He doesn't exactly no he's going which you couldn't have expected more of him from that. And I'm glad that Jenkins. Did that veteran move of being able to tell the coordinator what's really happening on the field and help help Schwartz calibrate and dump things down. It was funny. My I really felt like things came full circle because Philadelphia simplify the coverages ran to basic shells and found great success on defense. And the crazy crazy thing is that it was the same basic shells invert Tampa to and cover three that we hated Jim Schwartz for using the entire Tennessee game. Right. Like, we in my opinion after this is what lost Tennessee games. He's played this stuff way too much. And then he threw out a. A ton of inverted Tampa two in the second half. This is the best defensive game plan ever seen just goes to prove how much circumstance gonna changes what you expect from a coordinator for sure as in speaking of the giants because look ally wasn't gonna threaten us like that. But I didn't understand and a lot of people don't understand in..

"Answer those questions than Susan Glasser staff writer for the New Yorker and Paul Kane senior congressional correspondent and columnist for the Washington Post. Welcome to you, both Amy so Paul I'm going to start with you does she have the votes of many many years ago Trent Lott when he was Senate majority leader said to me, something you don't have the votes until you have the vote. So the answer is no she doesn't have the votes right now, but she is working meticulously to get them. And for all the reasons I talked to John Tuesday evening and Tuesday night of. So it was great ear his voice again, his points are are spot on. But you still have to go get the vote. It's and she's trying to do that right now. There's a lot of talk about people not voting for Pelosi. But there's no talk about if not Pelosi than who. So. Yeah. It seems like a big challenge in feeding Nancy Pelosi is having oh, I don't know someone to actually vote for if it's not her that is the ultimate problem with this whole effort. The other Trent Lott ISM that. I learned early on was you can't beat someone with no one you have to have someone. And so far this whole effort is just so gripped around the idea that, hey, she's not great. She always lost these elections. And you know, we'll just deny her speakership, and then someone will miraculously just appear and become speaker. And it just doesn't work that way. Susan. What's your sense of what is really behind the democrat? Opposition to Pelosi. Those those members who ran campaign ads saying don't worry. I'm not gonna vote for Nancy Pelosi or incumbent members who won't vote for her. Well, look, I think one point that we've already talked about a little bit today is that question of whether she's been subject to a national campaign vilification. It is interesting that they sought to sort of maker, the Hillary Clinton of this election cycle, and that's part of it. They made it much harder for Democrats running in Republican-leaning districts to support her openly. And I think if you look at I believe put a co has something like ten incoming members who said that they won't vote for her on the floor and all of those essentially are in districts where the politics of that are very impossible. So that's that's a key reason. And the fact that in a change election. Do you really wanna pick the seam leadership team that you've had for a decade, and how much of it do you think this is about her age and her? Gender versus her policy positions. I think it has always been more about losing. They lost four straight races two thousand ten twelve fourteen sixteen and that was the frustration. They screwed up oftentimes her opponents sometimes by just making it sound like it was just about her age. Susan in your New Yorker piece. You wrote this week that Washington will get worse. Not better as a result of Tuesday's results. Tell me what you mean by that. Well, I was already typing that before President Trump's now famous press conference, and you know, I think that gave us on full display the first twenty four hours after the election results..

Oh, we can't hear you Tim. All right. May not be the youngest candidate in this race, but I'm certainly the most prepared and I'm prepared to lead this country. I don't need any on the job training to Sarah Palin. I disagree on a specific issue because we're both Mavericks and there are a lot of people complain about divisions within the Republican party. That's good right now. Let's let a thousand flowers bloom. I hate the press. I hate you, especially. But the fact is I, we need you. We need a free press. We must have. It's vital. Jew said he's growing. Yes, in office, there are some that will say, no, the Washington establishment sucked him in. I hope so. You've been on here few times. So I've heard time flies when you're having fun. So there, John McCain, thanks for joining us and sharing views. I haven't had so much fun since my last interrogation. Welcome back. It is fair to say. This was the worst week yet. Donald Trump's presidency and Tuesday. We were treated door remarkable split-screen drama, one Trump confidante lawyer and fixer. Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty counts of financial fraud moments later in two hundred thirty miles to the south in suburban, Washington. Another Trump ally. Paul Manafort was found guilty on counts of financial crimes of his own. The twin events dominated news coverage and have many asking whether this is a turning point in the Trump presidency. Joining me now is Senator Jeff flake of Arizona who does sit on the Senate Judiciary committee. But of course Senator I want to begin. With your thoughts on on Senator John McCain, you wrote, you wrote something very lovely in a self deprecating way. You said you were the other Senator in Arizona and that when you serve with John McCain, everybody learned to become the other Senator from Arizona. Go talk more. Well, yes, I, I was that was my title, the other Senator from Arizona. I grew to joy that embrace it that it was like caveat of a big brother who nobody wanted to mess with. So I very much enjoyed serving with John McCain in the Senate and being in the house when he was in the Senate as well. You know, a lot of people including myself are wondering fills that void. It's not going to be avoid that is filled right away, but how does the void like John McCain's get filled? I think you've tried to step up in different ways trying to reach across the aisle, but not many of your colleagues do that. I don't know that we'll ever see anybody who was like John McCain. I think he's one of a kind. I think we can certainly try to follow his example and seeing the good in our opponents in recognizing that people may be on the other side of the aisle or have a different philosophy. But there are friends and their fellow Americans. I think that that would go a long way. If we would follow that example from John. I know the Chuck Schumer the Senate Democratic leader says he plans to introduce legislation to rename a Senate office building. We assume that it's the Richard Russell Senate office building somebody that goes back to the segregationist years in Georgia. I take it. That would be a pretty easy vote for a lot of people to cast to rename that building the McCain, Senate office building. It would be, I hope to be the first Republican cosponsor. I think that's a fitting tribute. He had his office there during his entire time including right now, right in nearby office. And so I think that that's a very fitting tribute..
