"Our votes babbling blade trying to survive economically hoping that these big infrastructure and other policies that will affect not only our lives but the lives of all generations to come will pass. And this fucking random like nah. Nah you know what it'd be like. What the hell is that like. I think that's the reaction to most people when they find out that this individual exists. No there's gotta be a bunch of people like clutching. They're just like. Oh my god. Not the parliamentarian wh-when harris overrules. Of course you got. Or as trent lott did as you mentioned in two thousand one she can be fired. I mean really if trump did one thing this is not a good thing you know. Trump fired everybody for all sorts of reasons. It was like a spinal tap drummer kind of in administration and you know a lot of people were fired for unjust reasons like say alexander. Van mint Because he told the truth under oath which is something. The trump administration didn't like. But you know we. Now have a precedent of all sorts of folks. Just get in fired willy. Nilly without any kind of real repercussions there's an actual reason to fire The senate parliamentarian and that's to protect the american public so they should do it and it shouldn't be that hard without question. I one thing i'll say. Is that the senate. Parliamentarian is propping up this whole system of white supremacy that is destroying our country from within a- and that's why we were such a ripe target and in many ways for the mass murdering xenophobic terrorist regime putin's russia where immigrants are harassed and viral youtube videos. That's the thing there. And and a nationalist march founded by putin turned into a neo nazi march. That's why these conservatives and these democrats in name only are stalling any progress that would putin prove in trump prove our democracy because they benefit from this system. They are existential making their wealth and they've new escape plan after that 'cause all their estate plans are just fallacies dump fantasies that do not stand up to reality and so if you look at the moderates for instance the ones who are going to be vulnerable in the dark money campaign of the midterms. They loved the parliamentarian. They're hiding behind her. They don't want to have their names associated with any type of immigration reform specially when fox news. It's exploiting all those images of the haitians on our border and so forth and not only that they hide behind the gloss of good governance and bipartisanship when really the bipartisanship of so many of these democrats name only moderates so-called mater so called moderates is the bipartisanship that they do greatly contribute to is taking from the same trough as the republican colleagues. They're all dependent on the same major. Corporate donors cape corporate donors that are fine to fund politicians. That are driving the unconstitutional and dangerous. Antiabortion law in texas corporations that are funding the violent insurrectionist that drove the mob attack on our democracy and january. Six you have these so called moderate democrats democrats in name only daigneault's who are taking the corporate coffers and so they're happy hiding behind the parliamentarians so called rulings which are not rulings recommendations. Because then they don't have to disappoint their corporate donors. They don't have to be make themselves vulnerable to dark money adds going into the midterms and so forth. So the senate room terry and is very much doing favors to the traders on both sides of the aisle in the us senate exactly. And i just wanna sort of emphasized the zena phobic aspect of this because as you said you know images of the thousands of haitian refugees. Who arrived on the border in del. Rio are all over the place being exploited a by right wing bigots and there's some confusion as to why there there's i just wanted to just i mean this situation in the images that are coming out of there in the stories that were here. He out of there are absolutely horrifying. And if you were horrified rightly so by the plight of people in afghanistan whose lives were ruined in part because of our wars there you should feel equal empathy in equal upset at what is happening to haitians at the border. And what has been happening to haitians. I mean quite honestly since the founding of colonialists hiti which one of the few successful overthrows of that rule but especially since two thousand ten when they had a catastrophic earthquake That you know had aftershocks both environmental and political a good source. I think on kind of breaking down is jonathan katz Who studies haiti Has a free newsletter. In explains that the haitians who have showed up in del rio were part of a wave of patients who moved to brazil from his newsletter in search of jobs and housing in the years after the catastrophic twenty ten earthquake the jobs turned out to be fewer and poor paying the it hoped. Some fled the rising xenophobia. Stoked by brazil's neo-fascist president airballs denaro to chile then the pandemic came the dangerous crew and opportunities Became more scarce so then. He goes on to describe their journey through south america to colombia to panama throughout salvador under guatemala and then finally to mexico and finally to the border of the united states. And you know anybody who has been a refugee or worked with refugees or just has common sense knows that you do not make this journey lightly. This is a terrifying atrocious way to live and the were at the border are there with their families there with their children and the reason that they were being attacked by Border control on horses holding rains that they were using as whips Was because they were crossing back into mexico back and forth in search of food in search of medicine in search of the most basic supplies needed to survive and for the biden administration to treat them the way they're treating them but also just engage in this rhetoric like. Yeah we're just going to deport them. That's that with no introspection about our own governments role in facilitating this conflict. And how treated haiti but that aside just the basic laws of asylum the basic laws of human rights and what this country is supposed to represent..

Cannoli or something wasn't there. there was something. Cannoli related became this sort of saturation level. Like people got to a saturation level with it. But essentially it wasn't sexual abuse it was abuse of power. And if you all know the one thing the left has to really come out against is you know a white male heterosexual male in a position of power that is being inappropriate with women who are well beneath him in these socio economic pecking order so they couldn't ignore the abuse of power and it really wasn't i mean again. This is my opinion. It was less sexual abuse. Because there wasn't any real defining right. He rent my blouse off and he raped me repeatedly. It was all an abuse of authority. Now like it's not like.

But Jean Joe's joins us right now, and we love talking around bungee because you really in the trenches of political operations within his Washington run. How did your Washington change yesterday? Changed dramatically. I think many Republicans were thinking that they would want President Trump As um someone that could help lead them into the 2024 elections believe that many Republicans now would not want President Trump or any of his people to be part of their campaign. What happened yesterday was a disgraced our nation and all those who believe in freedom and have died to protect it. Run. We're seeing action. Now. It is a Washington exhausted and waking up and I understand that as well. Mr Mulvaney resigns. Mr Pottenger resigns of national security. At the White House. What is the effect of those resignations on the executive branch and I, perhaps what editorialized and executive branch already deep people? What is the impact of those resignations? Well, I think the impact on them is actually quite minimal. Considering there's two weeks left in the Trump president. However, they're very symbolic on debt shows that You know the people that signed up for the Trump Administration of believed in making America great again? Do not believe that this is the This is the right path of direction in that President Trump is has gone down a path that's unacceptable, So I think you'll probably see more resignations. The time goes on their very symbolic Um, but I don't. I don't. I just can't see it having too much impact. There are those who are not resigning for fear that President may put in people that are not worthy of those positions and could make decisions you know, even even with days despair that could be detrimental to the country. Ron is we think about the future of the Republican Party. You know, the discussions began even before yesterday. And you think about it. 74 million people voted for President Trump. Many of them are doing Arctic supporters. That was the Republican Party. Deal with those people and reach out to those people and really get a sense of what they're looking for. I think the number of the people that of the 74 million people believe that the election was stolen. They do and they were. They were told that by the president, I think they're really should be some type of bipartisan congressional hearings over this To bring them to bring this to some type of closure to show. Whether or not there really any serious improprieties. There were more than I believe. Dozens of judges that have ruled that there were none. But there's people remain unconvinced. I do think that that's the first thing is, people need to feel like they're vote has not been disenfranchised. In order to keep them as part of our demand Democratic institutional process which is extremely important. I also believe that as time goes on, Republicans will need to unite. On show how they would leave the country differently at some point versus abiding administration, but right now We are. We're you know, dysfunctional is a party will need to come together at some point, But there's a lot of soul searching going on. How about the George will conservatives out there? Is there any future for them in the Republican Party? Yeah, it's it's I think there's a future for conservatives in general in the Republican Party. Conservatives and will move move on, But there are those that feel that they've been left out of this process. And that's why they joined the Republican Party, not as conservatives but his populist There's a blend going on within within our ranks, and, um, they're need there will have to be at some point. You know there will be in a I wish I could give you a Mr Ball to tell you how that's gonna work out. I don't weigh. Forget Your Majesty is communications within Republican party, Kyle?

"Newt Gingrich get his reaction to the Georgia results as we know them at this hour and then at 8 35 Russell layered will join us. He's a parent in Arlington County. He's doing Arlington public schools because, you know the kind of cares about his daughter, and he'd like to get back to getting our educated on Vince colonies with Mary Walter. Good Morning, all eyes on Georgia as as of right now, it looks like Raphael Warnock. Will defeat Kelly Leffler, although they are just separated by less than 1% of the vote, And when I woke up this morning, Purdue is ahead of us off and that has no flipped, and that was expected to happen because For whatever reason what the end when they're counting votes. There's a lot of votes to come in. For Democrats. It's just really weird. I guess Democrats vote late. I don't know what that's that's about. But, you know, consisted out force Cal Thomas, syndicated columnist and the author of America's Expiration Date. The Fall of Empires and superpowers and the Future of the United States. Good morning to you, Cow. Well, Good Morning, Mary and Vince. I don't know if I can sort all this out or not. I mean, I I agree with you. It always is very curious to me that all these late votes come in for Democrats. Fox is called it for Warren, off course, and you know this guy. This guy is just amazing, he says America needs to repent for white worship. His wife has accused him of being a major phony and actor and the not not the real person that you, you know that you see on television. He's she's accused him of abusing her physically. And yet it looks like he's going to come to the United States Senate. I mean, what does this say about the state of our politics? Yeah. No, it's a remarkable thing. And now, of course, the balance of power in the Senate is teetering on just one race. It seems as we await the results of Jonah Soften David Perdue is should this race falling? The Democrats direction this Jon Ossoff's race, Cal Thomas What happens next? With Democrats having the veto control or started the control of the Senate by virtue of Kamila Harris? You know Well, I was reading little history today. Back when Trent Lott of Mississippi and Tom Daschle, Democrat of Iowa, we had a similar situation, and they pretty much did it up in a certain amount of fairness, the committee assignments and and work together. For the most part, I don't think that's gonna happen this time. I mean, if it's 50 50, which is rare. With Kamila Harris being the deciding vote, and you can always count on some Republicans come and go to the Democrats side because that's what rhinos do. I think they're going to be able to push through a pretty radical agenda the next two years, including tax increases regulations, Lord knows what they're going to do in the Middle East and with China and and Iran, I mean Everything that Donald Trump has done has benefited not only the United States but also the world. Two great columns in one editorial, I want a column today in The Wall Street Journal. Why America needs Mike Pence is the editorial and Trump threw it away by home and Jenkins. Hey did it was his personality. It rubbed a lot of people the wrong way, plus big tech. Mark sucker bird, others through in millions and millions of dollars from various non profit to various non profit groups that redistributed it to activist groups for turnout, so This is this is a very sad moment. We've moved from the greatest generation to this generation and Reagan used to say we're only one generation of away from losing it all. And that could be this generation. No. Well, I 88 state legislators. From five of the battleground states have signed on to that letter to the vice president there, asking him to postpone the opening in the counting of the electoral college votes for at least 10 days. This seems to support what Ted Cruz is trying to do to get some kind of. Ah, commission together toe look at primarily the changing of the laws in those states to benefit Democrats really without going through the Legislature, which is what the cons Detention calls for Andre to me. This is a last ditch effort for any kind of semblance of any kind of, I guess rule of order anymore Because now we're just gonna let judges and you know, elected state officials make all the lost now. I guess that's how that's going to happen. And we don't need state legislators. Do you think that Mike Pence will play ball? I don't. I've known Mike Pence for a very long time. I think he's going to do what he considers the honorable thing at the constitutional thing. The limited role of the vice president as president of the Senate, and we will know in a few hours, of course, but I think he after after hearing these arguments from senators and members of the House of Representatives, which they're entitled to make, I think he's going to go ahead and, you know, ratify. The electoral college votes. This could be a very dangerous thing, Mary. We've seen You know, when Harry Reid was Senate Majority leader and went to a majority vote only for members of the Supreme Court, it turned around to hurt the Democrats and helped Republicans, especially President Trump, with three conservative justices now in the Supreme Court, So the founders wanted the states to determine who the president would be not the Congress and I think what goes around comes around and Republicans ought to be focusing now, if, in fact The ourself race goes in his favor to 2022 grabbing back the house and the Senate and then going for 2024. I think these policies they're going to hurt America. I really do. Well, they are, but they're also going to ensure that we never see. I think a Republican president in my lifetime because they're going to pack the court. They're gonna make you know, states and the whole bit But that is a conversation for another day. Cal Thomas. Thank you so much for joining us. That's right. It's 6.

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. When he was over there in Iraq for a year, people would come to him and talk about what was happening at home in terms of foreclosures in terms of bad loans that were being I mean these shylocks who took advantage of Bush's Wow, your kids, you're just as bright and just his talents.

"See the thing is with bite and his racism comes with a smile. Right. You know, it's still it's hand delivered with a smiles, right? You know, Here's Mrs acceptable. This is okay. It's Joe being Joe because he's smiling as he says, thes things these air just, you know, good old fresh, and that's what that's the excuse. They're using. To get past this right like he is, You know, he's a Liza little old. He's a little fuddy duddy. He does these things We can't quite explain. But come on. We all know his intent isn't bad. Now Donald Trump is another story. Donald Trump is bad. He's evil. He's he's doing these things because he hates people. That show is just a little outdated. He just says these things when he says, Hey, if you won't vote for me, you ain't black. That's just him trying to relate to the people and you know he doesn't quite understand how to do it. You know there, There's always an excuse for Joe Biden. Always There's always one built in to whatever he says. Whatever Screw up, he has whatever direction he goes, Whatever one way street he barrels down in the wrong direction. There's always an excuse for him. And that's frustrating for anyone who isn't in the bite and family, But it is. It's realistic. It's where which where we are. It's where the media is. So we have to deal with it. We have no choice and the only thing you could do is point out the facts. This guy over and over and over again has been on the wrong side of these things. You know, he has been on the wrong side of these racial issues that and he has stumbled. Over his own words over and over and over again, and all of these things are things that if a Republican said them their careers would be over. All of them. No doubt there. Is there any doubt about that? I don't think there's any doubt about that. But I don't think I don't even I don't know that the left in an honest moment would deny that. Remember what Trent Lott did. What did he say? He said, Happy birthday to somebody or I mean, it was. It was essentially that he said he would vote for the guy. I think if Ah, who was he talking about strong third. He's talking about strong German, and he didn't say he would vote for the guy, he said, Except get Justin. This on wonderful worlds, too. Excuse me, The student America. That's the new show, he said. He by the way, we should point out, he said. Only he said, so. Like, Look, he was President Yoo he ran for president. If some of stuff he asked, he asked for Ah went through it. We would lose a lot of the problems that we had today. He never said I would. I thought he would be a great president, or I completely agreed with this platform. And by the way, Trent Lott sucks. We should point out I am. I'm not a defender, but he was. He lost his job. His political career was over when he did that. Let me tell you about the time that Joe Biden eulogized. Take a member because that was what Joe Biden did. Has anyone pointed this out? Joe Biden stood up on stage and eulogize Robert Byrd, a member and said all sorts of things not just about his later life where he had supposedly had some sort of awakening, though his quotes from that era are mystifying. To try to make that case, But I mean, he's talking about his early life, his determination and early early with the cake. Yeah. I mean, it was a local leader in the cake was a local leader in the cake. Call it a grand poobah or the head bowler. Right on the head puller. Okay. Pretty eye of role to my understanding. Yes, Robert Byrd was in the cake right. He eventually becomes a little unfashionable at one point. And Bird leaves the cake and later on years after he's left. The cake gives this quote. Rather I should die 1000 times and see old glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again. Than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels. Oh, my gosh. What a change. Yeah. What an incredible change Transformation The guy made from HQ member racist, too in racist? Yeah, and now not K member, though, So, Wow, that's stunning. We should maybe go through some of these quotes because you because it's not. It's not just bird being horrible. But it's Biden never mentioning in his eulogy that he had problems like this. Now I'm not saying like, Look, he was a complicated man. His early life was a disaster, but he turned it around. He was great at the end, which is not really true, but still, at least that would be something. Yeah, and said it's constant breeze, not even a mention of the fact that the guy was in the frigging K. K K. And he's able to have that eulogy drinkable by honoring this man praising him constantly, and all the Democrats did that bite on the Obama praised him. Ah, Bill Clinton praised and they didn't get any kickback for that. You know, it's true. I mean, and like you could say Okay, well, they're only looking at him later in life well, not if they specifically are spending a good portion of the speech praising his early years. You can't say that. And that's what Biden did. We should get into that today. It's worth it. Because because I haven't heard anybody play these clips yet, and you can get all of them on students. America Go on YouTube, You could find a show. I think it's called studios Biden in the cake. It is a subtle title. I thought I was going for subtlety there. Yeah, but it's a worthwhile because you could see all the quotes you can see all the video and it's a worthwhile thing to go through because here's a guy In the mid when we're taking people off of pen cake boxes for nothing. We are also going to have potentially the next president. United States be a guy who eulogized that K member in 2010. Is that OK in this society today we're going to let that happen.

Biden Very Ellie When when he announces clear is GonNa end up being the front runner Obviously he was not only the vice-president traditional passing the torch from the previous popular President He was inheriting that popular support. But also he was a guy similar to Clinton in two thousand sixteen so a lot of intra-party support And you know felt if people can avoid that should probably be aware of its particularly African American voters who I argue. Books Botanist really systematically betrayed even though. He's getting the support your election after election. I think the main thing that people need to know about Biden his His approach to politics which vary based his nineteen seventy-eight reelection campaign which came at the conservative shift in US politics Is based on appeasing the right and sort of taking the platform of his Republican opponent and trying to make his own kind of siphon away support like that and that's really been the case in every election really how he's governed So that's why in the eighties and the nineties. You see Biden going out. She further on on the tough on crime and tough on drugs messaging then even Reagan and Bush or calling for Biden's call saying that they were they were not going far enough.

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

"Provided for in the constitution and each of the three actions to impeach a U. S. president is in some way without precedent but history still guides what we do as a nation where there are conflicts under our constitution and David O. Stewart has become a student of that history starting out as a lawyer in Washington DC where he represented a sitting federal judge an impeachment trial he moved on to become an author of books on history and the constitution including impeach the trial of Andrew Johnson and the fight for Lincoln's legacy I started the conversation with Mister Stewart with a discussion of the similarities and differences among Andrew Johnson Richard Nixon William Jefferson Clinton and Donald Trump most obvious similarity is their partisan Alexander Hamilton told us in seventeen eighty eight that impeachment would be partisan that they would they involve a political remedy for of an offense to the public and then there's comparative strength of the parties would determine impeachments and that's the way it's been it was Johnson the he was impeached by Republicans and the then it with next and again it was the Democrats who impeach the Republican president Clinton it was Republicans in Beijing a democratic president and now it's reversed I so that's a common theme people seem to be surprised by it but it's about as surprising as having the sun come up in the east another factor that's important is the impeachment happens late in a presidency in this is now entering the fourth year of Mr trump's term it it reflects a build up of frustration with controversial behavior inappropriate behavior by a president to until you hit a breaking point and enough people in the country and in the Congress say we really can't tolerate that and we've seen that both Johnson and trump were and late in their first term sin Johnson's cases only term Nixon and Clinton more impatient their second terms so I think those are Constance you can also see at least three other presidents were angry man who may sort of grievance part of their politics that which Johnson Nixon and trumpet either I I also wonder if there's a parallel between energize in in president trump that is different from president Nixon different from president Clinton and that is president trump is proud of what he did it isn't an iPad is it absolutely did I'm proud of it enter Johnson Zulu's proud of the fact that you want to pick his own cabinet the way wanted because cabinet Richard Nixon was never prouder that he did not he did it but it wasn't Prada and William Jefferson Clinton apologized but is apparel there because we now I'm presidency yeah I did it it was as he called a perfect telephone conversation with presence on ski of Ukraine I I think you make a very good point dive sometimes condensed president trump defenses essentially so what if I did and I think Johnson had the same attitude I meant to do this I did it on purpose and I I'm right and the Nixon and Clinton cases are not like that another comparison between Johnson and trump is there's a there were questions that they were sensitive to about the legitimacy of their presidencies Johnson as a inappropriate successor to Abraham Lincoln home had been president when Johnson was vice president then was assassinated and we know that Mr trump is very angry about people who keep mentioning that he lost the popular vote in twenty sixteen and suggest he's not a truly the choice of the people so there are lots of parallels house speaker Nancy Pelosi in an unscripted moment after the impeachment vote open the door to stall in the Senate trial by saying she might not send the articles to the Senate until Democrats see what the rules are the speaker Pelosi have the right to do that well the constitution doesn't say one way or the other so she has the power to do that I think it's an open question whether it would be wise to do that it's the practice we've only got three presidential impeachment in only two actually got this far I should correct myself I'd so what we do know is when the house approved the articles they sent them over to the Senate and holding out isn't strategy I don't entirely understand first of all I'm not sure what leverage and it flicks it basically telling the president you must stay in office that doesn't seem such a terrible punishment well when you're holding yourself out as the defender of the constitution departing from constitutional practice seems potentially to undermine your own message in fairness to the speaker she may have thought different about us some people around releases said you know what I don't think he's going to do that I think she'll send them all right away but there is one and maybe two issues here one is as I say Democrats whether they're in the house of the Senate want Mitch McConnell take a different approach to the trial do they have any leverage on that and the other courses this vote on US MCA is Mitch McConnell kind of put that in placing we're not gonna take that up until the trial is over it's hard to get leverage on Mister McKay center McConnell because he's just pays no attention to it generally and I think in this instance particularly because the president will back him and it it seems to me that the fact that we don't have testimony from very key witnesses it is a shame and and it's it's shameful frankly and we should have that testimony but it's a question of changing came in in the Clinton case there was no actual trial in the Senate they had a couple of depositions in confidential settings and then they had closing argument and there's a wonderful story that's come out recently that the lack of a trial in that case was because the Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott didn't want it he called in the house managers who wanted a trial and said this is a stupid impeachment you're going to get my senators beating in the next elections so do it fast just get it over with dance you know so what we what kind of control point to that president say well I'm just doing what Trent Lott did it's fast and it's affecting her I had not heard that actually gave it in the meantime let's talk about Mitch McConnell from home because he has now come out and really taken issue with the articles as voted out this is what he said the articles are just unproven they're also constitutional in coal era David I'm not sure constitutionally in coherent means exactly but let's take up the second article which is obstruction of Congress one of the things the Republicans are saying is the president asserted a privilege and it was working its way through the courts why is that a high crime and misdemeanor isn't his right to say I don't want my people to testify and then litigated up and the Supreme Court decide well there are a couple features of this situation that puzzle me in connection takes case we got that decision in forty days I don't know why the courts can't be made to move faster on these disputes that's a fundamental puzzle there just the same court structure as we had for forty five years ago and I I don't think it's going to be the in depth the problem with blocking this impeachment trial justifies going to taking the extra time now thanks to David O.

"Is not a wall when she is well I'll tell you one thing this plenty of sunshine today good to have you with us Mike Siegel for me to be here at the voice of Boston WRKO we're gonna get right back to your calls but let's see about the consistency the integrity the honesty of one Nancy Pelosi and one Chuck Schumer and one Jerry Nadler in nineteen ninety eight the president of the United States was under impeachment proceedings an impeachment investigation and in fact wound up being impeached and let us remember that Ken Starr who appears regularly now in the media. it out in his report to the Congress one which they could act a based on that report whether or not to convict in the Senate that president Bill Clinton committed seven felonies. one of which was lying under oath lost his license to practice law in Arkansas the federal judge in Arkansas in little rock chastised him even when he was sitting president for lying to the court. under oath. and so let's see how they thought about impeachment then when they were actual crimes committed by the sitting president folks actual real felonies. justification for in fact conviction. of course Trent Lott the Senate Majority Leader the Republicans wouldn't hear of it and by the way since it came up what are the point to remember. is that one need a bride Rick had been raped by Bill Clinton. raped. not consensual but rate. that's a vicious horrifying crime. nobody wanted to talk to her then in the media. nobody still really wants to talk to except fox. and the fact that the president has brought her out publicly as well and at the time shouldn't even want to go public but to her name kept coming up. and so she finally went public and described what happened to her. to the point that she described buildings in little rock near where the hotel was that Bill Clinton raped her. that no longer existed on NBC check back it was absolutely true that those buildings had been there previously before being torn down they were there at the time of the rape. you think that might be enough to. convict ape sitting president move out of office maybe. that's serious stuff so what's here at the time. what first of all Chuck Schumer thought about that in the impeachment of Bill Clinton. right right Germans recognized for thirty second I expect history will show that we've lowered the bar on impeachment so much we've broken the seal on this extremely stream stream penalty so cavalierly that it will be used as a routine tool to fight political battles my fear is that went to a Republican wins the White House Democrats will demand Hey back. really senator Schumer that was a low bar now the doubt to his this credit. senator Trent Lott would not bring the rape of Juanita Broderick into the articles to be considered by the Senate. he was asked to do it and he refused. what are you gonna tell me senator Schumer that the seven crimes committed by Bill Clinton weren't enough that that was a lower bar if that was a low bar what in the world is this there isn't even a crime in this case. not one crime. and yet what because you were changed his tune are listed next to now the speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi today the Republican majority is not judging the present with president with fairness but impeaching him with a vengeance in the investigation of the president fundamental principles which Americans hold dear. privacy fairness checks and balances had been seriously violated and why because we are here to as we are here to day because the Republicans in the house are paralyzed with hatred of president Clinton and until the Republicans free themselves.
