Rep. Kevin McCarthy Explains That Passing Legislation Isn't Always the Best Thing
"You're in the Senate. You watch this stuff going back and forth. I told you maybe many years ago that a dear friend of mine and a mentor Mind Senator Paul Laxalt on Nevada, Ronald Reagan's Putty. When I was a young man, I visited the Senate. I didn't know Senator Laxalt. He was nice enough to meet me. I mean, I was from Pennsylvania, not Nevada. But I was agreeing with the president or president. To be on the Panama Canal. And I wanted to meet Paul Laxalt because he was taking the lead on this and I sat with him. My father and I did and you must have given us 40 minutes. One of the things he said to me, Mike was every day This body meets, We lose a little bit of our liberty. That is stuck with me for 43 years. It's true, isn't it? Absolutely absolutely true. And it becomes more true mark every single day that passes when we as Americans are asked By the mainstream news media by the entertainment Industry and also by our academic establishment in America work as to accept this deeply flawed assumption. Passing legislation is in the abstract, a good thing, but it's an unmedicated. Good to pass things. We forget the fact that you know, passing something isn't always the right thing. And in fact, Lot of that time. It's just adding to the complexity of the law, which operates as a sort of subsidy. For the already wealthy and well connected. It's actually an impairment to liberty, and that's why the founding fathers made it very difficult to pass federal legislation and limited that further. By limiting the subject matter of what we could even legislate on. That's why I get very frustrated with people saying, Oh, the problem with Washington is that nothing can get done nothing to get past because of the spread lock. Mark. You don't get to be $28 Trillion in debt without a whole lot of
Bongino Welcomes Liberals to Confront Their Ideology; We All Should
"Liberals on even though it can be annoying at times, because I think it exposes the failure, their ideology and They won't do that to us because they're uncomfortable with their own ideas.

The CIA, the NSA and FBI, Not all 17 again. It's just they just don't tell the truth about stuff. And I wonder sometimes what if there's any value in this? I mean it like I know, maybe it's for Baden and talk about this stuff or whatever. But the show is for you and I wanted to be informative, and I wasn't going to let that go and it it's weird because I only had like three minutes with him and he just wouldn't give it up. It's not true. It wasn't 17 agencies that concurred. There was three It's or a clapper already admitted it that there were select handful of insiders that set all this junk.

They have a lot more coming up for us on the show about the senate and while you were listening to them you also heard coetze and you heard mellow see. Little was before zana nominee ask while i am very excited to have back with us on the children's our our own new mexico. Senator martin heinrich welcome. Back to the children's hour. Senator heinrich it's great to be here senator. You have been serving the state of new mexico since twenty thirteen. That makes you our senior senator now and you serve on a number of committees including the money. Spending committee appropriations intelligence committee as well as the natural resources committee and the armed services committee and today on the show. I know the kids. And i we really excited to talk with you about some of the things you've been doing in particular to address climate change but the questions could be all over the map. This is the children's hour usually these. These questions are harder than the ones that get from. Cnn so we'll try to live up to that. I'm gonna give you it easy first question. Can you quickly describe the difference between being a senator and being in the house of representatives. You've been both the house and senate have sort of different jobs in that. Both of them approved the laws that become national laws federal laws but the senate has additional duties including a approving the cabinet members of of new president approving judges that That serve at the federal level or even on the supreme court. So it's it's a little bit of of everything and you specialize a bit in that. Every senator sits on specific committees where you get deeper into the details of things. In addition to voting on the laws. I sit on for example. The energy and natural resources committee that sets a lot of policy of revenue energy and climate. It's also a committee that does a lot of policy around our public lands and new mexico has so many harksen forests and other public lands. That that's really important work as well. Why you do for our state well. I tried to advocate for our state. And make sure that we're able to address some of the needs that our state has that are different from other states. We have things in our state like Like cindy national labs and there are lots of states that don't have initial lab We have a lot of national parks of public lands. Lot of states back east. That don't necessarily have those things. We have whole. Tribal sovereign nations insider state when many eastern states. Don't have a tribal governments today. So i try to work on those things to make sure that things that maybe not everybody would be looking out for in in washington. Dc that the things that are important to new mexicans get attention that they deserve. What do you like most about your job. I think the thing. I like most is when i'm able to accomplish something that's really important to people in new mexico and sometimes it's hard to do that like changing laws is in hard But the people that come up to you afterwards who in one way or another have benefited from that and tell you stories That's that's really probably one of the greatest things about this job is being stopped in the grocery store for somebody to talk about something that was really important to them. We're talking with us. Senator martin heinrich. He is representing the state of new mexico in the united states. Congress in the senate and today's show we're talking about the us senate to learn how it works from people who actually work there. Senator heinrich we are gonna come back and talk to you. More about climate change and the efforts. You are making to address this incredibly critical issue. The kids are worried about the meantime. You're listening.

"Bet you at least heard of the us senate after all. It's pretty important but do you know what it is or how does it even work. Well as senate is of the. Us congress it has been around since seventeen eighty nine and has exactly one hundred members to members for each one of the fifty states. The us the people who work in the senate or call us senators not to be confused with state senators. Who will talk about in a moment. That's nice all you may be thinking. But what does the senate it's senators do. And in that question. My friends is where it gets interesting the. Us senate is all about making important decisions not little decisions like what sweater to where or how much ice cream to eat. Even though those can be really good to think about the senate can make decisions on passing laws voting in supreme court justices and even things like treaties involving other countries for the passing of laws and other matters that need to be voted on. The senate need sixty votes in order for something to pass. However when approving us supreme court justices and presidential nominees a simple majority of fifty one votes is enough to pass the roped when passing laws. The us senate actually needs to work together with the second part of the us congress. The us house of representatives both the us senate in the us house of representatives can come up with proposed laws also known as bills to be voted upon depending on which side of the us congress. A bill starts in the other side will then have the final vote on whether it becomes an actual law the us senate is considered the higher chamber and the house of representatives is the lower chamber one of the reasons this is so is because the senate has a little bit more freedom having unlimited debate time and is able to work with other countries.

"Because i i've been to many of his events seen him speak many many times and you know some reporters in texas now started to ask me and others always ask me like what's what's the is professional wrestling if you ever watch it. He's doing professional wrestling. Promos as political theater where you know he used to. He did a bit about taking a steel chair to the establishment itself. I mean it was. It was that like brazen. It wasn't even sort of subverted in their no it was. It was quite quite literally literally beating people over the head with these metaphors up and one of the things that happens in professional wrestling is if you have a gimmick in a certain area or territory whenever and it's not working you leave and you totally reinvent this new character to be somewhere else and i think that's what happened. We've never seen somebody to be so thorough on. The professional wrestling is exactly like politics. Sort of gimmick and that. And that's really what it is. Egypt he just got a new gimmick nia a new venue for it and and who knows you know if this doesn't work out there's plenty of other states in the union. There's plenty of other elections that every two years. It happens every two years so there are so. We have not heard the last dan road. Amer in on your point to your point in terms of his electoral performance. He didn't embarrass himself. You know When he ran for state senate in twenty eighteen he lost to a former member of the assembly who was Sort sort of neutrally regarded but he beat a former state senator Who who was sort of an inconsequential a state senator but nonetheless a name that people knew in nevada. He beat her to to come in second in that republican primary in two thousand eighteen and then in twenty twenty. He beat a field of candidates that included a former statewide elected official to win the nomination. So it's not like he is completely ridiculous and You know loses all the time and makes a fool so he actually has a record of winning certain primaries and so you know that he does have something to go on whether or not he should have may be stayed in nevada in run for another office and then sort of tried to build on that i think is another thing but i think you know i agree with you. I think he realized okay. Well i've tried twice once in a small district once in a larger district probably opposite of out should have been People are buying it here. Maybe it's time to move on to somewhere else and and this special election Sort of a gimme right. It's like the space between spaces. You know the twenty twenty ran than twenty twenty two loses this one he can still start gearing up for twenty twenty two and see what happens then so maybe someday we will see dan big. Dan wrote emmer in the congress of the united states. And if we do the plaque outside his office. I really hope has big. Dan in in quotation marks From whatever stadium prepar well. We'll always keep our eye on that and all these other elections that we talked about plenty for this week. I think you can always find us every friday. You can us on. Social media.

"They could get crossover votes. And each one has something You know mark hutchinson was the lawyer for those from two thousand seven. Two thousand eighteen recalls. That's kind of a black mark With him amway the congressional record and of course you know there's tons of stuff that you can deploy against day you know he you could say he talked a good game but voted with trump voted not to impeach trump. A couple of times and all that Ben key kaffir. I think it would be a great republican statewide candidate. He would have to spend a lot of money to improve his name. Recognition in other parts of the state. Same with heidi ganster. There're all the the problem with all for all those people is not generally it is. The primary is getting over that that big mountain climbing the everest. That is the republican primary. After that. it's it's. I'm not going say off down here because this is going to be a fairly formidable candidate. I think it is on ride. His gonna raise money. He's going to have a things that he did that That i think you can point to. He can point to that justifies reelection and so but they would be good. it would be good candidates. They would be good candidates. The problem for republicans is what happens if they nominee. I don't see on this list. We'll talk about senate second but the name adam lack laxa or a similar name does not appear on this list. And if there was an atom lack salt that person would be the favourite to win the primary. Let's just be honest about Adam lack laxa won the primary He by default. Nobody even decided to run against him because everybody in nevada knew that he was going to appeal to that. That party base now. I think his image has been shattered a little bit. I think he's been shown to a little bit to be a paper tiger after his performance against his lack which was abysmal. It was one of the worst campaigns. I think i've ever seen and certainly the worst campaign for governor in the state of nevada that i've seen since i've been covering in that's been going back a number of years so So someone like that. If there was a person who could excite the trump base who was a better candidate. And i don't know who this person might be that person i think would win a primary and so all of these folks talking amongst themselves is good. They've got to watch out for that x. factor though in and what who who that factor might be going forward. And i think that that could really be a problem in the primary but the general i is a completely different animal and and i think you know we've seen it before in two thousand ten Jim gibbons was running for a second term. And rory reid. The son of the senator Was the clark county commission chairman and he was running for governor against Against gibbons and some wise republicans in the state of nevada realized. Look we're gonna lose. We will lose jim. Gibbons he's too far to the right he has been a not a good governor.

Sin of basically saying look with this ukraine business. I wanna find out if any laws were broken. I'm not saying i'm gonna beach guy in the ultimately didn't vote to impeach the guy he decide. I wanna find out what's going on. What the you know if there were any laws broken. Let's let's hear about it. Which is very reasonable kind of thing especially for somebody who by training as a lawyer which avenue is and and for that he was tossed out so neither of these guys are in the trump campaign and to me. The trump issue still looms large. I think some of these candidates understand that in their own mindset you know the the trump base is a still a very significant part of the republican party. And they're going to have to get that base and that's got to be part of what they're discussing who can motivate that. Donald trump base Because you know. I it's it's really true. If you ran a moderate and i think mark hutchinson on many issues is a moderate. What would what trump. Ace stu would they turn out or would they or would they just not show up and i think the very real possibility is a lot of them would just not show up because they say look. The guy is a rhino. He's not. He's not a fire-breathing know. insult tweeting. A guy who Who is going to really take it to the to the other side In fact he's known when he ran for state senate. He was known for running. The you know. Nicest most clean and mud-free campaign..

US Foreign Relations for personal and political gain trump's political campaign tweeted videos statements and a cartoon Auto Tune Don's celebrating that he was vindicated however the Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said there will always be a giant Asterix next to the president's acquittal because of the Senate quick trial and the Republicans unprecedented rejection of witnesses foreign impeachment only one Republican and Mitt Romney of Utah.

"us senate" Discussed on Impeachment, Explained
"Procup and broke up nowhere of all things impeachment related. Welcome looking back glad to be back. So where are we The House has voted. We know something about impeach. Managers is what what is happening in the process right now. What is advanced since we la spoke so the House passed the baton? They transmitted the articles of impeachment to the Senate. They officially named their team team of seven impeachment managers who will be the prosecutors essentially making the case on the Senate floor against trump. I don't think the lineup is all that interesting. Really it's led by Adam Schiff as expected jerry. Nadler's also there so we lofgren former impeachment explained guest. Oh Yes yes uh well. She is interesting because as she explained on this podcast. She's been involved in the Nixon impeachment as a staffer on the Judiciary Committee and the Clinton impeachment as a member of the committee. But why seven seems like a lot of people. Well it's much less then house. Republicans had in nineteen ninety nine for Clinton's impeachment. They picked thirteen in people. So this is a bit of a smaller roster and also the makeup of the roster. It's kind of people who are close to leadership and people who are not so much partisan bomb throwers and Also revealing to me is that policy did not choose. Justin Amash Asia the independent from Michigan. Who who some moderate Democrats wanted on the team to kind of make it seem less partisan? But it's kind of a conservative slate. Eight of choices. It's probably going to be a sober team trying to make a case that doesn't get too far in over Vir- skis and then where are we in the Senate so the Senate seems to be moving forward but some of the key questions remain unresolved. There's been oath-taking already actually GonNa talk the B block today about the special oath. Senators take to be part of this. But that's what's happened in the house House the Senate preparing right now so on Thursday things. Things officially started when they received the articles of impeachment from the House. Then they called in Chief Justice John Roberts who rather unusually he is now presiding over this whole thing in the Senate and And then they had the senators take the oath and they Approved a bunch of Unanimous consent requests with various procedural matters about the trial. These are things that have been worked out by McConnell and Schumer behind the scenes. But it's not really the most controversial issues they have to determine which is the plan the overall structure for the first phase phase of the trial. So that is what is first on the agenda when the Senate comes back on Tuesday they will have to vote on this plan for the opening. MM Face the trial. McConnell has said he's going to follow the structure of Bill Clinton's trial in one thousand nine hundred nine. which was you had opening arguments from both both sides and then you had a questioning period where senators submit written questions to either side and the chief justice reads them out and they have to get answers and only then will they make a decision on whether to call witnesses or subpoena more documents? So that's the McConnell proposal he we haven't seen it yet so there are a lot of details we still don't know but He claims to have the Republican votes locked down to pass this without any democratic graddick support. And we'll also expect a vote on some democratic proposals. Like Schumer has signaled. He's going to vote very early on on on on calling witnesses but you know the witness question is not going to be resolved on Tuesday. Republicans are going to punt it until later in the trial and then finally after that opening volley of votes the opening arguments will begin. And we'll see the house impeachment. Managers make their case. That will probably take a few days. And then trump's is team will make their case so speaking of trump's defense who's on his team so the team is led by White House counsel Pat Sip Baloney Trump's personal lawyer Who's been around him throughout his presidency? Jay seculow is also on the team. a few other staffers from the White House counsel's office but on Friday day there were reports that in fact trump was adding some very big names Former independent counsel Ken Starr who of course pursued the case that led to bill. Bill Clinton's Impeachment Robert Ray who succeeded star as independent counsel in that role. And also Alan Dershowitz who has obviously obviously famous celebrity lawyer defended. OJ Simpson Jeffrey Epstein and has been a bit of a controversial figure of late but has been a staunch defender of trump on the impeachment topic on Fox News. There's something if you were writing this as a topic novel to show. What would happen in America Arca? This polarized Republican Party is like driven itself into this particular corner to put Alan Dershowitz. Who defended Jeffrey Epstein and Ken Starr who who grew up in the united? Jeffrey will also depend but also was the special counsel prosecuting against President Clinton just show how much the partisanship of this can invert everything you just it. Would it would seem like too heavy handed in the plotting. Take to bring these characters back in this particular way would just seem like you're making too aggressive of a point about how much people don't care about anything but which side is ultimately being supported Y- and for trump. I think it's simple. He wants people who are famous. People who are stars and White House Counsel Pats. Baloney didn't have a lot of TV experience. And he's watched Ken Starr and Al Dershowitz go on TV and defend him all the time so I I think that's what he wanted. He wanted starpower. It seems that there's at least. Some movement among some Senate Republicans in in the direction of witnesses. Can you talk a bit about whether or not. That's been a united front or whether or not we're releasing the possibility that we're going to get Some at least more information gathering during the Senate trial. Yeah Yeah there have been some interesting signals coming out Pretty much since the standoff with Pelosi ended McConnell really didn't want to budge there and he kept his republicans united behind him but since then there have been some signals that McConnell Oh may be concerned with managing this trial in a way that tries to provide cover for or protect his purple all state Senate Republicans many of whom are on the ballot in November and I think foremost among those signals is And the topic of a motion to dismiss so McConnell keeps saying. He's following the precedent of the Clinton trial in one thousand nine thousand nine but one thing that happened in and that trial was that after everything we just talked about the opening arguments in the questioning. The Senate voted on a motion to dismiss the charges. I would have ended the trial right there. Thrown out the charges and McConnell and Senate Republicans are signaling. They are not going to do this this time. And the explanation that's being offered to reporters is that they don't have the votes to dismiss the charges and they don't see see the point of holding a vote on a motion to dismiss and then losing it because all it would do would embarrass their members. put their moderates. It's in a tough position and so on so this is a signal that like. The Republican senators at least in appearance are not unified around a strategy of throw these impeachment articles in the garbage right away the purple staters and the people who have more of independent brands like Lisa. mccaskey Mitt Romney. They want to make this thing look serious. They don't want to be seen as taking this lightly and McConnell. There's very interesting CNN report where McConnell claim to just not have the vote for this motion to dismiss with is something that trump watts trump wants the motion to dismiss. He wants this done width but McConnell saying we shouldn't do this we don't have the votes and and the story also claimed that McConnell actually doesn't even think emotion to dismiss would be a good idea politically so this shows that he has to balance the imperative of protecting trump's political interests with also protecting his Republican Senate majority and not making his purple state and independent members look like total hacks throughout this thing. Speaking of witnesses left harnessed who is one of Giuliani's associates or might want to go on Bagman during this Seems to have flipped and gave a pretty big interview. This week to Rachel Maddow. Can you talk about who is and what we did learn from that interview or at least maybe we learned from that interview. Yeah so PARNIS was rudy. Giuliani's fixer essentially in this Ukrainian caper working with a colleague of his Eager Gore Freeman. He flew around with Rudy. He went to Ukraine Without Rudy and met with a bunch of Ukrainian officials tried to open doors make contacts contacts and the goal was to deliver this dirt on Biden and these various other Matters that trump was interested in like gum. You know Investigating Ukrainian interference in two thousand sixteen and stuff that could help manafort. Potentially PARNIS was was helping to try to make make this all happen. And he was He describes himself as part of a team with Rudy Giuliani with a pair of other conservative lawyers. who were helping This whole caper and so what happened. Is that in October. He was suddenly arrested with fruit. And while they were about to fly out of the country and They were charged with campaign finance violations. So so basically. They donated hundreds the thousands of dollars to Republicans back in twenty eighteen to buy this access to people like Giuliani and the prosecutors allege that they made false disclosures about those donations and where the money was coming from and so on so parnes says that he was kind of treated by trump's legal team at that point He got the signal that he was expected to fall on his sword and he said he didn't want to do that and so he appears is to be very similar to the Michael Cohen Situation. Where a guy who was an associate of trump or people around trump a AH kind of shady unreliable character he flips? He claims to know a lot of stuff but he clearly also has his own motivations. He's not the most honest guy in the world from his track record and he seems to be either trying to get Congress to give him immunity in exchange for testimony in the trial or for prosecutors to make some kind of deal with him neither of which seem particularly likely at this point but when it comes to the interview with Maddow I actually think what was more informative. This week were the hundreds of pages of documents and text messages from Parnassus that he and his legal team This this was stuff seized from prosecutors in his case and he decided to make an offer to just turn this over to the house impeachment investigators and that was just turned over. This week has posted them publicly. And they're fascinating. Reading they show Parnasse in contact with Rudy. Giuliani with Conservative lawyer Victoria tensing. With all these Ukrainian Indian officials trying to get the ambassador fired Ambassador Maria von of it trying to please these Ukrainian officials trying to get this dirt art. The Prosecutor General of Ukraine at the time refers to He directly makes a quid pro quo where he says that. If you don't make a decision about Madam Madam Ambassador Ivanovich you're bringing into question all my allegations including about be seemingly Biden or Barista which essentially mean the same thing so overall bigger picture. I think what this tells us is that there's really a lot of this story that we still don't know that we haven't seen the documents for in part because the trump administration has been so successful at stonewalling Any turnover of documents. We got all those messages from Kurt Volker last last year that talked a lot about what State Department officials involved in Ukraine were doing. But they're big gaps in the rest of the story in these messages. Really shed light on what was going on on on the Giuliani side on the shady attempts to get Ukrainian dirt side and and I think they look very bad. Andrew broke up. Thank you very much. Thanks Avenue joining.
"us senate" Discussed on RUMBLE with MICHAEL MOORE
"Apt he so he such a believer in the way you know. The trump really isn't a believer in anything other than trump. You know he believes himself. Love Bolton really believes Bolton really you know if he were still there he liked the idea of starting a war it is that he's that kind of shall we say thinker but he's he's also here's an here's kind of the interesting thing about true believers they have a conscience they check in with their conscience of interest to see if what they believe in is right or wrong and and the way they're going to go about the things they believe in is to remain true to themselves true to their principles true into their conscience and John Bolton is the kind of individual who if testifying I believe would would not perjure himself in addition to that he I think at this point. It's pretty much confirmed. He hates Donald Trump. He's onto the phoniness unison. The whole thing he knows that trump is not a true believer. He knows that trump is not a Christian. He knows that trump trump will do whatever is best for trump. I'm trump will get into bed with Kim North Korea if it benefited. Donald Trump Bolton knows that and despises trump for this and of of course trump knew that that Bolton was not a real loyalist bolt was loyal to his beliefs. Not to the man from Fifth Avenue and so he fired Bolton he got rid of Bolton this past year if Bolton is to testify what has to happen Panetta says that the prosecutor the Democratic Prosecutor from the House. 'cause remember the house issues the indictment and so they have to try the case in the Senate so whoever they send over from the house whether it's chef or or whoever Pelosi herself they they have to ask Bolton won a simple question you're aware that the whistleblower informed us and the public take that this phone call with the Ukrainian president the notes of the call. The call itself all that after the call was over. You you people in the room people on the call new. The trump had committed a crime a crime of extortion bribery. Some would even say treason. I would say that and right away. Certain people knew that they had to hide all evidence of this call. And that's exactly what they did. They took they took the notes. The call that whatever they had regarding the call and they put it on a highly secure national security computer server in the White House that very few people have access to they knew they had the protect trump because because of word ever got out that he was extorting the president of another country in order to dig up dirt on his potential Democratic opponent. That could be the end of trump. And so they hit it. And the only reason we know about it is because the whistle blower new they added the whistleblower knew who hit only certain people have have access to the server if you go back to the beginning when trump took office and the national security apparatus would not give security clearance. To his son-in-law jared would not give security clearance to Abandoning Steve Miller Stephen Miller and the all these crazies that trump brought him with him the CIA and the NSA said no no. They don't get access but because the president the United States is the chief executive. He is the boss he gets to decide and he gets to go against what his advisors and his national security the people are telling him to do and that's exactly what he did and he gave security clearance to his daughter and his son in law and Stephen Miller and you know his true loyal hardcore people. So I'm guessing that means that they had access because they had the full security clearance the trump gave them they had access to the server. Is that possible. They could put things on the server. They could take things off the server their job as they knew it and it still is today is to protect Donald J trump and they were gonna get away with it they were ever would have known because no reporter. Nobody ain't nobody could have hacked or we could have really gotten into this server to find out if we didn't have the whistle blower but then we found out in here. This is what makes John John Bolton so dangerous. My friends listening to me right now. I WanNa ask you a question. Do you think that in the first three years of the trump administration that the Ukrainian phone call was the only thing put on in hidden in in the national security server in the White House. Do you think that's the only time trump broke the law. Did something he shouldn't have done. Said something something he shouldn't have said that's the only time it happened. Where his closest most loyal people? His family didn't say to themselves after after a phone call after a meeting after something they saw trump do holy shit put that on the server to you and I know and I I sorta got if there the Republicans in your family you you could ask I think. Even if they were honest they would they would say okay. That's the Ukrainian phone call that that is not the only only thing in three years. Where trump did something questionable trump did something illegal? Trump did something that would put his whole administration nation in jeopardy. You think that's the only time of course it isn't. My guess is that it happened over and over and over again where they've had the cover up for him and that information is on that server not just the Ukraine phone call but all the other things we don't know about and Bolton knows it the question to Bolton on the witness stand sir. Were you present at any other events other than the Ukrainian phone call where you witnessed the president. The United States take questionable action. Saturday did things that were potentially illegal. Yes I was there for that. Do you know if if the evidence of his activities was placed on this same secret server that the Ukrainian phone call was placed on. Yes I I believe it was. Do you think that in the two years before you had your job that you had before you were fired. They had you heard that other things have been placed on the server. Yes I heard of those things to. Would you mind telling us what some of those does things are. Well well my friends at that moment. Hopefully you will have set your. DVR You'll be at work you'll be at school. You'll be asleep when he tells us that. The Ukraine call was kindergarten that there are these things took place and when the American public. Here's these other things. Whatever they are I swear to God people people are going to have had it? Republicans are GonNa have had it. Republican senators are going to realize at that moment when they hear you're one treasonous illegal activity after another that has taken place in these last three years. The rats are going to jump from the ship. You're going to have your twenty Republicans very possible. You'RE GONNA have ten Republicans who just to save. Save their own ass are going to say sorry. This is a bridge too far for me because there's already five right now. Five five to seven Republicans. Republicans up this year for re election that may not be reelected as a result of what's been going on there struggling to save their seats and the the senators who are not up this year. They're open twenty twenty two and twenty twenty four all of them. We only need ten only ten of them and then we need need another ten. Republicans are I don't know how to refer. Let's call them well. Let's call them. People of faith either religious faith or they operate operate from their conscience like like Bolton like Bolton will not perjure himself bulletin will not go to jail protecting donald trump. It's lasting last thing a true believer like him is going to do. But you've got the Mitt Romney's you've got you know a devout Mormon who is offended by trump. You do you think there's nine other Republicans you know real hardcore Christian Republicans and that fake Christian. I mean they really believe how disgusted you think. They are with trump and his behavior and the way he talks an ex his view of women. What do you think they if they could if they could see him go? Do you think if they could save the Republican party to them putting in one of their own true believers Mike Pence. It's possible isn't it. If what they hear on that server beyond the Ukraine call is is just too much for them to take you'll need twenty Republicans trump can keep the majority of the Republicans there's fifty three Republicans in the Senate. He can keep thirty three of them and still still be convicted and removed from office just twenty Republicans half of them for their own religious reasons and half of them because they want to save their ass and save their Senate career save their seek get reelected. I know I know what the possibilities are again. I'm I'm not going to Vegas for the ads on this. But what if what people they after they will have to subpoena that server now. Of course they're not going to give up that server. They're going to New Orleans subpoena like every other subpoena except now this trial in place and it may end up in the courts and the Supreme Court may somehow allow him to not. You know they'll call it a national security thing. But what if what if this happens instead of going to the courts with the Subpoena Pena you actually have the court sitting up there in the main chair in the Senate the judge who presides over the trial of Donald J trump trump is none other than the chief justice of the United States. Supreme Court. John Roberts what if it's up to him Oh. This is very frightening to trump into Republicans. Because trump knows that roberts though a conservative is not a loyalist to the trump regime. In in fact Roberts has broken with the conservative majority on the court to vote with the liberals a number of times in the last few two years most notably when obamacare made it all the way to the Supreme Court and the Republicans were certain now with their conservatives on the court that this would end obamacare by taking the individual mandate out of the out of the law that would essentially kill obamacare her and the day that the ruling was issued. It came out five to four in favor of obamacare. What happened?.
"us senate" Discussed on WSJ Opinion: Potomac Watch
"From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac. Watch, welcome back. I'm Paul zhigo with Bill mcgurn that Kim Strauss, we're talking about the battle for the United States Senate to control of that, not so August body, but Kim, just take off from your point Trump's approval rating has I think, really taken a hit here in the last few weeks. The generic ballot has also widened the real clear politics. Average of the poll question on which party would like to control congress. Now, eight point two percent in favor of the of the Democrats Bill. How do you explain the president's approval rating falling? I'm in the because you know, for for months, he stayed pretty solid at forty, three, forty, four, something like that. Right. I, I don't know. I think possibly it's not spending enough time talking about the. Economy and so forth. I mean his his. It seems to me that what's been more consonant is is the high disapproval rating than he has from the American people. And I think that's going to be a factor even in these Trump states that said, I'm a little skeptical about polls. I think my my gut tells me the the Republicans will do. Okay. And couple of reasons. One is five thirty eight. Just carry a story that that website the website on on polling and noted that August polls which most of these are tend to be off like almost ten percent a between eight and ten percent between the final margin and so forth. Also, I think each each reaches individual for all the talk about Ted Cruz. He's in a tight race. I think Mitch McConnell, characterized Republican races as a knife fight in now anyway, that's not, you know, that's not very consoling for foreign comments, but he still ahead I'm I was surprised. I believe dean Heller is still ahead by one point. I thought he was the weakest. Candidate. And I see in my state, New Jersey, Bob Uganda step stayed on one issue, which is. Corruption, and I never thought I still think Menendez going to win, but I never thought it'd be vulnerable as he seems to be. I think it's actually a pretty good strategy for the Republican just to talk about corruption. I don't know a single thing that he actually stands for in terms of policy well and Nevada Heller. I've seen another poll. It has held her down one, but it is neck and neck and that's the that's the reality here committing Arizona neck and neck Nevada neck and neck Tennessee, economic all three. If they went against the Republicans would be losing seats. Then you look at the seats in North Dakota, Florida, Missouri, and to some extent, all three of those neck and neck and no real clear advantage all within the margin of error, no clear advantage for any candidate. And then you look at Braun in in Indiana, Mike Brown, the challenger jo-john, late Donnelly has a somewhat wider lead there and Ted Cruz as a somewhat wider lead over his Kim. Over his democratic challenger in Texas. So the if you look at all, let's say, take the six that are right now within the margin of air three for each party. Holding those seats. We've seen from the past that when you get a direction and election, they all tend to break the same way and can break the same way. And if they all those all break the same way, then the Democrats will run the house. I mean, run the Senate. I think the thing if I were Republicans would be most alarming to me as you mentioned those seats in for instance, North Dakota, Indiana, West Virginia. These are places where I mean look at North Dakota where Heidi Heitkamp the democrat is up for reelection. This is a state. The President Trump won with thirty six point margin over Hillary Clinton. Okay. And the guy who's running against Heidi Heitkamp Kevin Kramer he is the state's lone house memories been there since twenty thirteen. He has really pretty good name recognition. He's been an ally of Trump, and but he can't necessarily get any headway here in this is I mean in a state again that that ought to be easy for them to do now. Granted, she has run a very clever race. She's positioned herself while on some issues, but but they ought to be doing better the same thing you look at Missouri Claire mccaskill Trump won the state by twenty points a very charismatic state attorney general Josh hall.
