"Now, Thank goodness there was a little bit of love. Tweaking of the lyric, Shall we say, Because when head build, wrote this it was about a crib, Death, Sudden infant Death syndrome and Well. Lars went to the producer of this album Guy by the name of Bob Block couldn't be his real name howto be a fabricated names. Look, man, this isn't going to sell. They were just uncomfortable playing this thing. So, uh, the producer rock goes to head field and he says, Look, uh Jimmy. Uh, we got to rewrite these lyrics. So, uh, head feel goes back, and he, he writes, writes new lyrics. He wasn't happy about it, but he comes back with one of the great rock and roll songs of all time. The black album was kind of a polarizing album. A lot of, uh, one of Metallica fans like it. A lot of Metallica fans don't like it. I love it. And I think this is the signature Your song by far The black album, as is the entry music, one of the greatest closers in baseball history. Yankeesmariano Rivera. 11 o'clock, It's time for the news. On news Radio 700 WLW News Radio 700 wlw. Now your host can brew on news Radio 700 wlw Well as we continue to sit, Wait, they continue to fight they being our elected officials in Congress and the United States Senate. Over what kind of enhanced unemployment benefit should be now the next phase of what has been a Siri's off of bailouts for workers who have lost their jobs. And there doesn't seem to be anything at play here, except politics. I think everybody understands that there are a lot of people out there hurting And these these packages thes unemployment packages have really and truly helped. Getting by for a lot of people who are living hand to mouth anyway, from in a robust economy to where it is now where there are so many millions of people out of work. The extra $600 in unemployment benefits ended. At the end of last week, and there's still no package that will take this financially to the next level. Now, why? Well There's a presidential election coming up in exactly 2 September three months from today. Three months. And because of that, it's become a political hot potato. The Republicans. The administration actually wanted to extend the $600 a week benefit through this week as both sides continue to talk. The Democrats didn't want to do that. They want a package that has even Mohr benefits than what the Republicans are are proposing at this point and caught in the middle or a lot of people, innocent people that are just wondering, waiting A when they can go backto work and be When we're going to return to some sort of normalcy, if indeed that ever happens. Never thought I'd throw that catchphrase in at the end, but I think a lot of people are wondering, Let's bring into the conversation. Debra Daniel. She is a financial strategist, and she's a C P A and uses her experience in the financial industry to provide audiences like ours. With tips, steps and strategies were building. Well, who doesn't want to do that? And Debra Daniel, How are you on this glorious Monday? I am awesome can thanks for asking, but I'm like everyone else wondering when life is going to get back to normal and And what's gonna happen with financially for all of us from a healthy family? I can't speak to the science. I'm not a scientist. I'm a money expert of a business expert. I've been in business for almost three decades. Bender to 2000 text Double 2008. And this is dumping me What's going on now? Is unprecedented. Well, we were talking. We were talking earlier in this show today about the disconnect between Wall Street and Main Street. I mean, the market today is up. The Dow is up not significantly. NASDAQ was up significantly. The last time I checked, but yet on Main Street we've had yet another tick up in Java and unemployment claims last week, and we're about to get another job's report here at the end of the week, which should show that there were more jobs created. In the month of July. So there's all of this bouncing back and forth of different information that really there's there's no straight line through what? How does that happen? I think part of it is this is not. I mean, all the paradigm. All the formulas all the business. You know how things work that we've known for. Our lives are not rules aren't working right now. Really? Because it's being driven not by people wanting to spend money not by people wanted that job, not by people having customers that his health situation People have money and want to send money if they still have a job. If they work with people, you know if they're touching them if they have a salon if they have, you know there tending bar there serving food. You know people someone off things, but because of this health situation it way don't think that we've used the decisionmaking pricier. Reducing the past doesn't work. I think that's really what the problem is. It's not all business related. Know exactly. And people have changed their lifestyles instead of going and sitting at a restaurant and having someone wait on you. You do take out On those that you get to go into a restaurant. If it hasn't been completely shut down. They have. There is far fewer foot traffic through those restaurants than what it was back in January and February, so fewer people are employed in that industry. And generally when you're talking about the food service industry, or you're talking about the entertainment industry, those are companies that aren't normally traded on Wall Street. So the jobs numbers and lack there and we're going up. But yet Wall Street continues to go up in there, I think is the disconnect. Exactly And I think we have to be very careful to. I mean, I look at I have two sides. A look at it as a business owner wants to employ people. But then I have a lot of clients that are the people that don't have job. We're talking about unemployment benefits of $600 a week, in addition to what the states are giving them You have to be a little careful with that. I mean, we've seen employers that have gone some of our clients that are ready to get back to somewhat normal capacity to somewhat depending on their industry. And they're having trouble getting people to come back. When the people can get 600 extra dollars. You know, there's there's not really a correlation between what the 100 what people were making before. I mean, if you're making more on unemployment, then you were making me and I don't want to be unpopular in my thoughts. But I'm a student of economics and how money works and how people are motivated if you can make $600. Plus, you're saying them out and stay at home or go to work when you were making only $400.500 dollars a week before That doesn't take a rocket science to figure out that it's going to be harder to get people to come back to work. You have to balance that bit between offering the health and but then also the incentive to get to get back to working. Yet here is yet a study done by Yale economists that was published yesterday. And the finding of this study was workers facing larger expansions and unemployment insurance benefits have returned to their previous jobs overtime at similar rates as other, we found no evidence that more generous benefits Disincentivize work either at the onset or the expansion of these benefits, and I So you know, I hear what you say..

"The same nation news talking inmate 40 kicks and T and I am reclaiming my time. Ah, By the way, the great clip surfaced have been running around the Internet of Bill Bar Attorney general. He was out and about somewhere drove by a pro police rally. And ends up getting out of the car with his with his FBI detail. And shakes hands with everybody there and had very kind of pleasant. Exchange with people. And of course, every news story, you know was was every reporter who wrote about it was having the vapors because he had been shaking people's hands and he was not wearing a mask. So that's that's the takeaway. You cannot win today in this I mean, I guess if you put on a mask, it was a photo up. I mean, it was designed to do what you guys got to show his face. And it was out before anybody say was out in the open. It was in a park. And ah, very, very pleasant and heartwarming Exchange. I I did enjoy that. Let's I want to get back to this to this. Biden. A thing because he's got I mean, it's it's here. Well, he's the gas. The some of the gaps are definitely not just slips of the tongue that reveal Ah, frightening ideology that perhaps many of us disagree with, But I also think some of them are just showing true Cognitive decline. Here's one Let's see. This was him talking about some of the glory days back with his man Obama and all the billions and trillions of dollars that they procured out of nowhere. To help this country. Listen to this. We put in our last administration, a truly and 1/2 dollars. We're going to make that, too. That brought 30 off the side. I mean 1,000,000,030 billion off the sidelines. I mean, I recognize that politicians talk about billions and trillions like it's funny money, but it's just it's it's not coherent. Here's a couple more way all these truths to be self evident. All men are created. But go, You know that. You know the thing during World War two. You know, our Roosevelt came up with a thing that you know was totally different than a then the school he called, You know the water. He had the world the war Production board. My name's Don't buy nomine Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over. You're likely see help out, if not both the other by Give me a look. OK, I dont even the last ones Funny because I've tried to figure out without word is my name is Joe Biden on the Democratic candidate for Senate. He's saying this, of course, as he's running for the candidate he's running for the nomination Democratic Party nomination this last round. If you if you like what you see help out, if not vote for the other by. I think that guy or Biden, there's like another Biden out there somewhere. I don't know. Look, it's sad. And those of us who have dealt with this in a close way. This is heartbreaking. And the only thing that I mean, I really am not making light of this. This is serious. And the media is so desperate to get trump out. That they're they're assisting in this. So of course, the big The big thing right now. Is figuring out how this what kind of impact this has on the race. And I I we talked a little bit about the polls earlier. And I say how they will tend to tighten because the pollsters that are let's say a little bit more ideologically. Anti Trump will start to will start to fidget or manipulate the math. The formula To Titan in order to boost turnout. This is a commonly done things. I'm not just making this up. It is a really thing. Now. The other part of this is that three months out six months sound People have. There's not very many people out there that love trump right now. The people who vote for Trump over Biden. Most of those voters are choosing Between a guy that is a loose cannon on Twitter. Is a little bit all over the place is in many ways ideologically unreliable. Has many weaknesses, but but he understands that the role of the executive branch Is to deregulate as much as possible on the federal level. To allow for a business climate where companies can prosper because then turned turns into jobs. Jobs in turn, turn into paychecks. Paychecks in turn, get get get made into spending money and spending money is what is what is turns the economy over and over and up and up. He gets down, so we know he gets that because then he's consistently perform in that way. Trump is a bit of interventionist for my liking, and he certainly loves toe toe wield the power of the federal verve and all sorts of other You know, I just He's a big government guy in that sense, but he understands the power of deregulation. He has done great things and hear me out on this. For every person that is, has a retirement account. An IRA any kind of investment in the stock market. Those people of Alden better so now When I'm talking about how people you you might pick up the phone. And three months before the election. Go freaking trump. I hate that of by a vote for Biden or I'm voting for and you'll see this a lot with them. Libertarian candidates..

"Talking because I was a registered Democrat. And so they're saying well, because he was a registered Democrat supported Obama that's ridiculous. If you look at my facebook page from that time, it's clear. I did not support Obama. My opponents know this but they don't give out details and facts they started smear frankly because I'm black and I was a registered Democrat that they say, oh well, he voted for Obama it's ridiculous and frankly has borderline racist. They attack me because in twenty eleven I had critical things to say about Donald trump long before he ran for president But what they won't tell you is is that I was being critical of Barack. Obama my sister brought up Donald Trump and I told my sister in my facebook comments. I don't care about Donald Trump he's not running for president He's not the President Barack Obama's the president that's the person we should be focused on, but they won't tell you that. So I've been labeled everything from a Rhino never trumper I'm I'm now I'm being told I. Support, Barack Obama. But if you look at records, I'm the only person in this race that came into politics in the tea party movement ten years ago I'm the only person has raised. That has been in every city council and Every County Commission Excessive Christy McLaughlin I'll make mentioned her that has actually spoke against mass mandates in south Florida right now, the other candidates have been nowhere to be found. I'm the only person in this race that has a record of standing for the second. amendment. Even standing against their own party I've done that in Florida legislature so you're a trump conservative. I say that with hesitation because he's not really a conservative, but that's everybody seems to be hugging the president these days in the Republican Party why? Why? Why Why the President I don't mean that I mean, why is it? Is it a winning strategy to that trump is a conservative when he really isn't. The winning strategy is to say that you stand with the president. Okay I stand with the President I support him I was never going to support Hillary. Clinton. Right. That was never going to happen. I'm not supporting Joe Biden was just on Fox and friends bashing him for the comments. He made a couple of days ago which were outrageous comments but that being said I support the president because number one he has actually helped to restructure our tax code he has. Got Rid of bad regulation. He's created opportunity zones and a lot of our urban quarters help with economic development. He has actually done some of the reforms in our justice system. The same reforms that Joe Biden actually instituted I support the president because he's actually has done what he said he was GonNa do and he was very straightforward with that. I don't care about tweets and I don't care about personalities I want somebody to run the country that's going to do A. Good job say what they're going to do and not be cowed by media and by special-interest that's why I support the president. But I'm also a conservative I believe in limited government the limited powers at the federal level I believe in individual liberty that you and I should be able to make decisions for ourselves. We'll make a far better job making those decisions for ourselves than any government bureaucrat can do or any member of Congress or the United States Senate can. Do. Now, when you're talking about making individual decisions and all I know you were when you were in the house now you're on on the Education Committee and you've talked about was watching a video you were at somebody's house the other night and you were talking about the schools and school choice. Can you give us your view on that and that you sort of were alluding to the school calendar? Are you are you saying that we should go full school year what? Will let me take back the number. One thing I think we should do an education is that parents should have the ability and the purchasing power to choose where their child goes. In Our in our society the state. Government Funds Education. What we've done in our system is that we only fund education at traditional public schools and in Florida we changed the law twenty years ago to fund funded it at charter schools. But if we're going to really empower young people to get a transformative education, if we're going to empower parents to make sure they find the best academic environment for their child. Now for all chosen for their child, what you WanNa do is give them the ability. To make that purchasing decision, we already pay for it if they go on to a public school well, why are we paying if they go into a private school if you're GonNa if you're really going to be forward thinking and have a true economy education where people can get the best services for the dollars that are being used, you WanNa have a free flowing system like you.

Even undermining the postal service in the run-up to. That's GONNA be dependent on male and belts so people don't get sick. I know this is a celebration of John's life. There some who might say We shouldn't dwell on such things. But. That's why I'm talking about. was devoted his time on this earth. Fighting. The very attacks. On democracy. And what's best in America? That were we're seeing. Circulate right now. John Lewis. Regional today President Obama described a string of encounters. He had with John Lewis that perfectly encapsulate. The power of voting rights and what John Lewis's life's work. Has Meant to this country I met him when I was law school he came to speak. And I went up and said. Mr Lewis. You are one of my heroes. What inspired me more than anything as a young man was to see what you? Lost Song. Bob Moses Diane. Nash. Others did.

Cory Booker on how the U.S. should reform policing
"We want to speak now to New Jersey senator Cory Booker who joins us from his home in Newark a morning to senator good morning mark thank you for having me in Atlanta was the killing of Richard Brooks an example to you of excessive use of force I was a bit of a new Jersey's largest city with the police department if one of my officers shot someone in the back while they were fleeing with a non deadly weapon that is unjust use of force and unacceptable to community standards and it's very unfortunate and and tragic given the broader concern at the federal levels on how to come up with legislation that both sides can get behind you heard senator Scott say that when it comes to qualified immunity the administration has made clear to him that is a poison pill it cannot be in any kind of legislation how do you offset the concern in the administration that qualified immunity helps well it it it's necessary because police need to make split second decisions and they can't be thinking twice in a way that inhibits them from doing their job how do you offset that specific concerns well let's understand that qualified immunity right now it's not a democratic support thing Clarence Thomas and conservative Supreme Court justice is saying that we need to re examine qualified immunity well some of my Republican colleagues in the Senate right now have come forward to me and said we need to re examine qualified immunity or qualified immunity does in this country is allows a case in Washington were pregnant woman seven months pregnant was dragged into a street for not signing a parking ticket in taste three times no accountability those police officers were qualified all finding unity it's a case in Utah where bicycle rider the hundred yards away was shot multiple times by multiple police and then they claimed it was just mistaken identity no accountability in terms of qualified immunity even in Washington and even in Oklahoma the man with pneumonia wandering stumbling to a hospital unarmed was shot and killed by police so I can go through the whole rific example after horrific example we have to ask ourselves a society do we want to have a nation where police officers who really awful things cannot be held accountable to sit two civil rights charges and that's unacceptable and so I I hear what folks are saying but when there's so many conservative voices are talking about qualified immunity and when we know that no one in America should be above the law I think it's time that we change qualified immunity what what what you heard center Scott say that was the term poison pill meaning this could this could sink everything else what about his idea that he floated there of decertification as a way to reduce officer misconduct well every American should think for themselves if your wife or daughter or family member was that pregnant woman who was brought out into the middle of a street for not signing a property contains three times is the certification a real accountability we are a nation right now where the sense of what's possible has shifted the bill that I just did with incredible partners like Kamel Harrison house members that would have been poisoned pills just a month ago this is a moment in American history where there are things in the Republican bill that allows still choke holds for a no knock warrants which were being banned right now from Kentucky to New York this is not a time for lowest common denominator watered down reforms it's time to stop the problem because if you if someone's needs on your neck you can't take it halfway off and say that that's progress we have the tools with which to stop people from dying and any spill should have a ban on racial and religious profiling call four by George Bush in his first address to Congress are you saying are you saying on this one particular issue that you will not sign any bill unless there is a reduction that would allow for it to be easier to prosecute bad cops look hi I have witnessed in my life the awful criminal justice system getting worse from nineteen eighty till now are criminal or course Rhaetian going up five hundred percent in America and it was part of a compromise bill to liberate thousands of people out of prisons and so I did the best I can in the first step we did to tear down a system of mass incarceration which the land of the free has one out of every three incarcerated women on the planet earth even though we're only five percent to close population so do I want progress yes but when you when you stop shores and start talking about finding a bill that's the lowest common denominator it is meaning that we will revisit this again with another on armed black person gets killed in the nation the rocks we should be seeking to solve the problem pushing the back when possible and getting as big of a coalition as we possibly can if it did but didn't and you're saying that there is a chance here that this moment could you could miss the moment that Democrats Republicans won't be able to come to a compromise no I'm saying that we could miss the moment by not solving the problem and ending practices yeah we know would make a difference to lives things like having police misconduct registries yeah open to the public because sunshine is the best disinfectant so I'm gonna do everything I can in this moment that is it every day with with artists of activism nonviolent protesters on the streets every day well I want to ask you I want to ask about this moment because I mean it's an election year and emotions are already super charge the president this morning sent a tweet quoting Michael Moore filmmaker it said Democrats shouldn't underestimate white male trump supporters rage and emotion you heard my exchange with senator Scott about whether it is ignorance or deliberate nous to plan a rally around June thirteenth eight do you believe that you can come to a compromise with this

Senate Democrats and Republicans debate response to police reform
"Michael on the day George Floyd was laid to rest in Texas senators in the nation's capital were discussing ways to change policing and address systemic racism in America the Senate's top Democrat Chuck Schumer says the justice in policing act introduced in the house this week is the best solution to reform the criminal justice system if we pursue this bill the public's on our side and we will do very well but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says Republicans are devising their own bill led by the only black Republican in the U. S. Senate of as senator Tim Scott to lead a group that is working on a proposal to allow us to respond to the obvious racial discrimination that we've seen on full display on our television screens over the last two weeks and what is the appropriate response by the federal government senator McConnell says Tim Scott is the only member of the caucus who can truly shed light on the situation I think the best way for the Senate Republicans to go forward on this is to listen to one of our own who's had these experiences he's had them since he's been in the United States Senate and with his guidance and leadership we're going to come together with a proposal that we think makes the most sense the congressional black caucus led the effort behind the house bill and senator Schumer says the Senate really should go with that this bill has been carefully thought out senator McConnell says the Senate Republican bill will be carefully thought out to you but as for when he might be released at some point in the near future will have recommendations to be made that's what worries senator Schumer member when there was a lot of gun violence and McConnell said all our caucus is going to discuss it we're going to deal with it said and then they never did I'm worried the same thing would happen here still senator McConnell is under no illusions that it will be easy to craft a bill dealing with this discrimination which persist here some fifty years after the nineteen sixty four Civil Rights element nineteen sixty five civil rights bill that we're still wrestling with America's original

Watch the Democratic debate in South Carolina tonight, Democratic line up
"Again tonight the Democrats there in South Carolina South Carolina primaries coming up on Saturday then followed immediately by super Tuesday and so the candidates are all up there let me see who's going to be on stage tonight here's the full list we have Elizabeth Warren Joe Biden Bernie Sanders senator Amy Klobuchar from Minnesota Michael Bloomberg is going to be back let's see if he's prepared and all this time around Thomas Dyer whose another one that's kind of unprepared and getting really silly when his you too bad at all really sick of them yeah it's amazing he's he spent a lot of money as well not needs that spending Bloomberg money Bloomberg it's estimated has already spent a half a billion dollars in ads both prince both television radio and internets and mayor Pete's gonna be onstage as well so you have with a whole bunch of them out there we'll see see who the low the long knives obviously you're not gonna be out for Michael Bloomberg this time around he's proven that he's not going to be the candidate he's just an apt I think would be the way to put it to good for dead last debate was just terrible they'll be out for Bernie Sanders this time because Bernie is the front runner they're all gonna be going after Bernie watch that tonight problem is Bernie's not a fighter but Jesus ease a savvy politician I mean that's really all he's done all his life do you have a job until he was forty all these really done is yeah even from the public trough is now you don't congressman senator mayor so he's done he's just you know been a public servant his whole life didn't didn't Poland regular paycheck to lose forty years old unbelievable but he's going to be up there tonight nonetheless we've had to Bernie Sanders talking about who should be the candidate because member last time Bernie was making a good run of Hillary and it looked like at one point in fact he was going over taker and delegates and then the Democrats pulled this stuff with super delegates and all this stuff and all by the way well we found this these delegates over here they happen to be in the wrong room will bring them all they want to vote for Hillary okay and then wow we get found this carload of delegates over here and this busload here they were stuck up in Wisconsin you know they want to vote for Hillary that's right okay so here they pulled all this magic and basically stole the nomination away from Bernie well Bernie is just letting him know that he's paying attention this time around I guess and he feels that who's ever rides at the democratic convention with the most delegates should be the nominee this is Bernie Sanders Cardi one candidate comes out on top the state of the country you voted for that candidate all but by the way we don't think the candidate should be the nominee I think that would be a serious serious problem for the Democratic Party and I think it will wreck havoc all on that person's campaign what was your view Verney it'll ruin that Carson's campaign because they won't won't be the nominee anymore Pete mayor Pete from a south bend Indiana he's also up there running thirty seven years old I'd like to see he's out class but he is very very well first if you see every every word he said his B. is practiced every movement he makes has been run through focus groups he's very very I don't see a plastic up on stage but he certainly is smooth talker the whole bit but he's realizing as are the Democrats the Bernie Sanders is the candidate and if he comes out of super Tuesday with so many delegates he very well could be the candid unless of course the Democrats pull some crazy shenanigans but mayor Pete up there he realizes of Bernie Sanders is his nominee it's going to destroy the Democrats and so he sold up his hands and Hey guys over here you know I'm a viable candidate let's give a listen to cut after this is mayor Pete we have put together a campaign with has a different way of approaching politics that has drawn together people across ideological spectrum in in in different kinds of communities and stand the best chance not only defeating senator Sanders well if we can unify the party but of defeating president trump in the fall okay I don't think that last one's gonna happen but again he's kind of saying Hey if we put Bernie up there the boy we're all in trouble and then there's old Joe Katie green our ring in the inter webs I found a great piece of audio from Joe Biden told Joe Jo Jo Jo Jo Jo Jo is not sure what he's running for let's listen to Joe Biden South Carolina yesterday and I have a simple proposition here I'm here to ask you for your help right come from you don't get far less yes my name is Joe Biden I'm a democratic candidate for United States Senate look me over your legs he help out and now both of you have a bite give me a look though okay wait wait what what are you doing you run that bias against Jerry can I have a simple proposition here I'm here to ask you

a look though okay okay hold on he is a democratic candidate who's running for the United States Senate and if you don't like him that vote for the other Biden who put the replacement so did sound like he said you know sit down sit down Joe somebody get him some water let's maybe check as wires in the back to make sure that they're all firing properly argue I think he's lost a couple of cylinders there yeah I know he's not he's not firing fuller is easy it's not the no not the old politician used to be falling back on his lines who is running for the Senate folks Joe Biden's running for to be the democratic candidate for president okay now not finding sentenced in state Senate Joe you know used to be kind kind of funny that's actually kind of sad you know he's there so many times he'd be in Ohio we get confused call at Iowa and and I say it's sad because he was doing an interview a couple weeks ago and he mentioned how every morning he gets up and he says you know it should have been both it's running for president beau Biden was the son the son that tragically died of brain cancer he was the Attorney General of Delaware and Joe every morning thinks himself should have been a son running for president so maybe is doing in his honor but Joe I know you're probably gonna do well in South Carolina maybe up on the stage just clarify that you are running to be the Democrat candidate for president case people think you're still running for Senate I'm

A Complete List of Trump’s Pardons and Commutations
"Today. Donald Trump continued his full on assault. On the rule of law pardoning and commuting the sentences of several high profile criminals he notably included former Illinois governor. Rod Blagojevich was convicted of trying to sell Barack Obama's Senate seat vacated because he was elected president in exchange for campaign contributions. Begovic had served eight years of a fourteen year prison sentence. You may also remember the governor from the apprentice where he messed up the Harry Potter Challenge and got fired Donald Trump. We'll technically by the apprentice producers today the President Communities Sentence Response Members of the Illinois House Republican delegation released a saying quote. We're disappointed by the president's commutation of Robert Mugabe of federal sentence. Begovic is the face of public corruption in Illinois. And not once has he shown any remorse for his clear undocumented. Record of egregious crimes that undermined the trust placed in him by the voters. Nbc News Correspondent. Tom Winter reminds us are eating. A jury found him guilty of trying to extort the CEO of Children's Memorial Hospital for a donation in exchange for increasing the payments to doctors. Who took care of Specialty Care Kids? Oh but Donald Trump was not done there he also pardoned former New York police department. Commissioner Bernard Kerik pleaded guilty to eight felony charges including tax fraud and lying to White House officials. Carrick was nominated by George W Bush to be the Secretary of Homeland Security before withdrawing that nomination just a week later. The judge gave a longer sentence than agreed to the plea deal saying quote. I think the damage caused by Mr Carrick is in some ways. Immeasurable trump also pardoned bond. Trader Michael Milkin. So guy considered to be the face of insider trading in the nineteen eighty S. Milton was originally charged with ninety eight. Federal counts including racketeering. He pleaded guilty to six felony charges of securities fraud conspiracy. He was sentenced to ten years in prison. He also paid six hundred million dollars in fines and restitution at sentencing. The judge said quote when a man of your power in the financial world repeatedly conspires to violate and violate securities and tax laws in order to achieve more power and wealth for himself and his wealthy clients. A significant president prison term is required in order to deter others others receive clemency from trump today glued former San Francisco Forty niners owner Edward debartolo junior. Who pleaded guilty in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight two concealing an extortion attempt involving the governor of Louisiana David Savvy and the former Bush administration official who was sentenced to a year in prison for lying about his association with Jack? Abramov June grown the owner of a Mental Health Care Company. Who was serving a thirty five year prison sentence for running? A two hundred. Five million dollar Medicare fraud scheme to be clear. This is the president who spent the last six months arguing. He so pose corruption. He had to make sure. Ukrainian president was to by withholding credit grudgingly approved military aid unless you launch fake investigation into the Biden's and route around Kremlin source conspiracy theory tourist findings but somehow this group of liars an extortionist and swindlers is the group of people. Trump felt deserve clemency. Maybe it's just a coincidence. That trump is pardoning these felons as the sentencing yet. Another one of his criminal pals looms earlier today. Trump tweeted about the judge in the trial of his longtime friend and advisor. Roger Stone suggesting stone deserved a new trial. Not long after the judge ruled stone. Sentencing hearing we'll go on that's planned on Thursday. Although she did say Roger. Stone's sentence will not begin until after she rules on his request for a new trial. Trump's interference with the stone cases. Troubled the Federal Judges Association so much that they called an emergency meeting tomorrow to address it and joining me now. For more on the president's pardoning spree. Today's Walter Dellinger. He was formerly formerly the acting. Solicitor General and also the head of the office of Legal Counsel at the Department of Justice under president. Bill Clinton Mr Dellinger. What do these pardons say to you as somebody who worked in in at high levels in justice in the United States? Well I think the show that we're really at the at the end of being a country that believes in equal justice under law there was no process to see how these crimes and these sentences compared with others who remain in prison. It's the president's own whim when a president acts by Wim and says he did of the Goya Vich. I wanted wife on television that that is an assault on the rule of law. But it goes much deeper than that. This is part of a three pronged assault on low as we know it. It involves threats of criminal prosecution of political opponents. Those investigate you. It involves promises that the president will intervene on behalf of those who commit crimes on his behalf and it. The third leg of this assault is his attack on judges and jurors in cases in which he's involved there is there's a banana republic aspect to it as you said that if you're friends with the president or on his TV show you get a pardon no matter what you've done and if you cross him in any way you might end up being prosecuted and we know that William Bar doesn't seem to be opposed to doing that but they're also does seem to be kind of a sort of Ross statement of power that Donald Trump is saying that if you commit these particular kinds of crimes that are against the Public. Trust that our financial in nature that are about corruption when he himself was impeached for corruption. It almost as sort of I don't know it almost feels like a message about that too about the fact that he's saying no no. I'm going to use of dive into corruption and revel in it. That's a good point Jordan. He treats he treats very high status people as if they're high status is a mitigation of their crops. When in fact it is an exacerbation that makes him so much worse. When you're a privileged person take for example. The fact that he has intervened on behalf of someone who was this got to be the national security adviser and lied about an investigation not just any investigation an investigation into a foreign military powers intervention. Our election. He intervened on behalf of someone who has been a prominent associated with President. Said is Roger Stone Who who committed five categories of lies and engaged in what the first department memo said was a relentless multi year attempt to again and obstruct justice in terms of an investigation into the corruption and the election and then finally the sympathy for someone. Who had the Honora being governor of one of our largest states? And who is thoroughly corrupt? And who sold a position in the United States Senate? Now that's he treats those because high status people as mitigation of their crops. And would it surprise you if the after to the things that Donald Trump does as well when it surprised if he's setting up there's been a lot of questions about whether he might try to part himself like if he's ever found to have committed some crime and that would certainly make himself the biggest part of the mall. I think he would undoubtedly attempt to pardon himself and everyone around him. He certainly let it be known that if a if he's re-elected or or even in the period after he was defeated he is GonNa take care of Of of everyone he knows including himself. I think the courts would reject hisself pardon but you know no presents ever tried that before so we can't be sure and the way in which he he seems to revel in the fact that he could take someone like sheriff. Joe Arpaio a law enforcement officer who is targeting Latinos for harassment and using the power of the police deliberately against a minority group and he pardoned him of criminal contempt of court that the way in which he plays with this. I think Dolly Elliptic who some times on this show referred to the `constitutionalisation of narcissism is what we face in this country. Yeah IT DONALD. Trump wants credit of also doing first step back kinds of criminal justice reform. He wants credit for that. But but do you sense in the pardons that he's doing especially today that the real message here is his own power right that he's essentially saying if you're powerful and you're my friend that is actually how you get a justice not by being somebody who was falsely accused of a crime or got too long of a sentence for having marijuana or something like that. That's why there's absolutely the absolute absence of any sense that the people pardoned held they compared with the culpability and the sentences of the tens and tens of thousands who remain in federal prison. The idea that he can act on on Mir welcome. I think something we've never seen the president before you know. Some people are going to raise the a Bill Clinton's pardon of financier and fugitive Bark Rich. And that was the worst thing. Bill Clinton did in eight years and an office is unjustified pardon but Donald Trump is taking it to a very different level where he's using the levers of the of the power of his office in order to corrupt law threatening opponents rewarding those who would commit crimes on his behalf going after judges and jurors in. I don't know where we go from here. I think we two thousand former prosecutors not just signed a letter but perhaps to think about blocking the willing to be arrested blocking the entrance of the Justice Department out. You have to use your imagination where we go from here Walter Dellinger. Thank you very much really appreciate your time and joining me now. For more. On the president's pardoning Spree Matthew Miller former chief spokesperson for the Department of Justice who's down MSNBC Justice analyst and Betsy Woodruff Swan Politics reporter at the daily beast and she's also an MSNBC contributor. So let's talk about sort of where where he could go from here and where and what it means and I'll start with where he could go from here. Betsy because is there any reporting on how much more of this because it does appear that there is a pattern? Somebody is either you know his friend or was on the apprentice goes on Fox News and pleads for his help he immediately responds to his friends and gives them a pardon. Who's who might be next on the list. I spent the afternoon talking to people who identify or describe themselves as allies of Roger Stone and they said that they saw the spate of clemencies that came down today as very comforting to them. Because they believe it's a signal. The President is sending that Roger. Stone may be next in line for this type of executive action. I thought your use of the phrase Banana Republic was really interesting because a federal judge. Us that exact same phrase in a transcript that was recently released from a closed door hearing regarding the investigation. That's now closed into Andrew McCabe and the judge literally said that the fact that trump was tweeting about McCabe so often the fact that he appeared to be interfering in that process created the appearance of a Banana Republic. So the thing to keep an eye on both the president of course granting clemency to people who he views as his political allies in part because he sees them on Fox News and the inverse of that which is the president encouraging DOJ to weaponize itself against people who he sees as his foes. And I'm glad also that Mister Diligent Joe Arpaio because they're also sort of symbolic arden's of people who are hurting the People Donald Trump's base wants to see hurt.
Sanders and Buttigieg aren't competing for the same voters Tuesday. But they are competing, and fiercely.
"Good morning from Manchester the final days of this New Hampshire primary are always frenetic candidates criss crossing the state add saturating the airwaves new attacks on the stump and across the internet as we come on the air this morning the latest tracking poll show Bernie Sanders and lead people to judge right behind with moment in out of Iowa Elizabeth Warren Joe Biden Amy called which are stuck in a second tier was survival on the line our debate Friday night was the feisty is this campaign the attacks continued all through Saturday and I sat down with former vice president Biden right after emotional speech where he took on his opponents and the president I lost a lot my much like many of you have correction took away my wife and daughter lost my son beau like many of you don't but I'll be do if I'm going to stand by and lose my country to we began the interview with those first lines from Friday's debate were biting seem resigned to a loss here in New Hampshire now let's be realistic I think it's always coming up to fight when you're running against two people who are neighboring senators you know the deal for anyone here and every senator by twenty points last time so I I think it is an uphill fight but I think it's a fight will do moment but then you're gonna be looking history because you know that you know the history here no one is coming hello second in Iowa New Hampshire has ever won the nomination well no one is ever won the nomination without being able to get rumors force now African American communities and so far no one's been due to that but me look the thing that changes a selection is everybody in the Democratic Party June on one thing you have to be Donald Trump in order to do that everybody knows you've got to bring out the black vote and the brown wrote he got to be able to do it I've been able to do that so far so I don't think it's viewed the same way as it has been in the past even taking the right to to mayor Pete and I basically been organ he's not ready to be president I did it with the back in two thousand seven reset another candidate was when the president was Brock upon your **** you ready he said I think he can be ready but right now I don't believe he is the presidency is not something that lends itself to on the job training I think that I stand by the statement let's get some straight here I did the tech Pete Peterson attacking me he's been saying the reason we're in the problem right now is because of the recent past that's eight years will bomb in may I don't get the I don't understand and I think he is completely misunderstood or misrepresent my record I'm doing a great deal I've gotten off line don't both as a senator as vice president and he talks about him be ready well I managed at nine hundred billion dollar recovery back with no waste or fraud it would build out his city I led the fight the president turned music get to try it out of this mess I know how to handle a city I was able to get to try it back on his feet that's why the merited toward indoors I've been I've been able to get the chemical weapons treaty passed I was responsible in large part for the what happened in Paris with John Kerry and so on so I don't understand how those things don't matter and I don't understand when they talk about the past why Barak was such a lousy president there's a pretty damned good president is locating people to judge a risk because people ages is been nothing more and he's a good guy I like him he's a smart guy but he's been the mayor of the city smaller in the city right now is what has he done what is who is he pulled together does he knowing the foreign leaders has been able to I mean Barak Obama was a different story Barack Obama came from a large stadiums United States Senate run before he'd been involved in international he had a clear vision of what he thought the world should look like and so on so but it is very different situation your campaign put out a pretty tough video on the mayor earlier today they also reference the fact that he had fired an African American police chief in an ad and forced out in African American fire chief are you basically saying that the mayor but a judge has a race problem no no I'm saying he had been able to unify the black community that's what I'm saying the the most senior members of city council African American momentum doors me I never met the rest for the doors and so I think look in order to win George you're gonna have to be able to win states like Pennsylvania you do have to be able to win Florida remember even when a lot of places in fact I'm very diverse populations and so the assertion that he's ready across the board I don't see it I haven't seen that yet he's fired back today the campaign said that the fact he put out the video says a lot more about where you're where you are in this race and his record as mayor hello he's the one's been attacking me George I never said a word about him please talking from the beginning about how I don't have a record to run that by and all the problems from the past it was used to be Barack and me now I found out how probably Brockes so it's not just me as if I were named part of history and so I was responding to I haven't done this I responded to his attacks on me he also talked about the risk of taking it Democrats taken the label democratic socialism international election we surprise last night when only senator club chart join you in that concern no I was surprised but I think it's just a reality I mean look I have put in the late one Bernie Bernie calls himself a democratic socialist how you been around George as much as anybody you could win with that label your help somebody in Florida went with a label democratic socialist is every was going to go all the way down the line that's just gonna happen when North Carolina can win Pennsylvania you gonna win in those states in the Midwest it's not I'm not I didn't put a label Bernie calls himself a democratic socialist
Comparing the impeachment trials of President Clinton and President Trump
"Right now on Capitol Hill ahead of the one PM eastern resumption of the Senate impeachment trial of president trump some Senate Republicans are holding a news conference led by Lindsey Graham South Carolina chair of the Judiciary Committee thank you all very much observations about yesterday it was a long day but that's okay a lot of Americans have long days a couple things I've been involved into impeachment trials this is the second one I just want to make an observation here what the house managers were proposing yesterday is basically destroy the institution of the presidency as we know it make it make it when it comes to the partisan impeachment not have a venue to go to court and litigate privileges at the end of an exercise our prior presence when it comes to Donald Trump willing to destroy the institution of the office in the name of getting him so bottom line the Clinton impeachment was conducted by outside counsel there's not here Ken Starr spent five years investigating the president before we took up the matter in the house the president was allowed to cross examining Ken Starr at the house Judiciary Committee he recommended eleven grounds for impeachment and president Clinton utilize the court's extensively on his behalf Robert Mull was an outside counsel appointed to investigate this press I want the public to note that this president cooperated with Mister Miller he turned over million documents his lawyer testified for thirty hours and after two years of investigation with nineteen lawyers forty F. B. I. agents two thousand subpoenas and five hundred search warrants they decided to take no action they said there was no collusion between the trump campaign and the Russian government when it came to obstruction of justice they did not recommend any action I thought that would be the end of actually introduce legislation to say that Robert Muller cannot be removed accept the call because the president felt like the motor investigation was of which I did not the present was frustrated because he said he did nothing wrong I can understand that but it was important for me to make sure that the country would have somebody to look at these allegations Ross are very serious and I supported Mahler's ability to look any work for a long time and I thought it would be over Mr Shipp said yesterday what they did in the house was just like what we did with Clint that is absolutely untrue from the time they authorized impeachment it took forty eight days not two years with Mahler not five years like Clint the forty eight days the fact finding process was done in the Intel committee now the Judiciary Committee the present was denied the right to cancel the Intel committee and could not request with they spent one day in the Judiciary Committee go back and look at the tapes of how long can start testified before the Senate excuse me the house Judiciary Committee of which I was a far what we've done for the first time in American history isn't Peter president without outside counsel and all in a forty eight day period well here's what struck me the most where the house manager said reason we didn't go to court we don't want to go through the courts is that we can engage in before the election they withdrew from the Cumberland cover of the dead the national security adviser case where the dead the national security adviser what course to tell me what to do judge the house actually withdrew the subpoena because they didn't want the court process to stop the impeachment trial they would have the United States Senate create an impeachment process where the president would not be allowed to go to article three court to argue privileges that have been argued in every other impeachment trial and have been argued by president since George Washington that would destroy the institution of the presidency as we know it what would it do it would allow a handful any three hundred plus million country people all along partisan lines ten PH a president without independent judiciary the before I came here I used to try cases we have a lot of good lawyers in this body all I can say is that when the court date was set and if I showed up and asked for a bunch of subpoenas and documents to be produced on the day of trial that I had not pursued before the trial in any serious way how to get tossed out what do we do yesterday exactly what happened in the Clinton impeachment trial we're going to hear the house's gate the president's response we're going to ask questions then we'll decide among ourselves do we want to know anything yesterday was about eleven hours of them telling us how bad their case was in my view they did not pursue these witnesses because they knew the president what's the judiciary very us and it literally would stop them impeaching him before the election so the only thing I can tell the American people when it comes to replacing those present nine months plus from the election you got an up hill battle with me because I really do believe that the best person group of people to pick a president are the voters not a bunch of partisan politicians senator Lindsey Graham every day we're here doing this is a day were taken away from doing things that really matter so when they say it was like Clinton no when they say the court's really have no place in impeachment that's all going to be done by the house and the Senate without any independent judicial review god help us all center Steve Daines of Montana we had a lot of time last night thank some twelve hours on the floor of the US Senate is the first impeachment trial I've been through senator Graham is the experience that is his prior political life it reminded me of when I went to high school in Bozeman Montana if I turned in a term paper he was half complete my teacher toss it back to me they didn't get it done is incomplete probably give it up and say it's a complete try yeah that's why I felt like we saw last night was an incomplete case I have not done a complete homework you're my enemy what Nancy posted back in two thousand ten on the Obama care is that first we got a pass to find out was it it feels like what happened last night they had a rush this through the house just get over to the Senate we'll find out what's really in try to fix a fair let me remind you remind all of us in two hundred forty four years of history of this great country United States Senate has never remove a president from office never you look at the two trials for presence but we have had in the Senate over the course of our history President Johnson eighteen sixty of course president Clinton nineteen ninety nine what's unique about this impeachment trial versus the other two the other two both had crimes alleged in the impeachment articles president trump does not the other two impeachment trials had bipartisan support coming out of the house president trump impeachment coming out of the house did not first time I've ever seen there were many things that I agreed with with with a German never said last night but he did say some and I hope everybody hurts actually back to the Clinton days was it and I will paraphrase it and god help us if we ever purely partisan basis numbers work back then were wives and I hope you would see them today this is the most hardest impeachment process ever seen a history of this great country no crimes alleged in the trunk articles not bipartisan in a very important final point is if you look for the Democrats are asking United States Senate to do is to remove president trump from office and to bar him from ever holding office again was also unique about this trial versus president when this is done in an election it's really big the fundamental question as well is to the United States Senate the side the two thousand twenty election and overturn a two thousand sixteen election by removing this president from office I put the trust in the voters of this country they should have that say not the nicest
How will Trump's impeachment affect November elections?
"Even as the Senate impeachment trial is set to get underway president Donald Trump touts his economic success while at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Tuesday he said that the US has regained its edge against other nations in areas like trade job creation and energy when I spoke at this forum two years ago I told you that we had launched the great American come back today I'm proud to declare that the United States is in the midst of an economic boom the likes of which the world has never seen before Rick Davis we were talking earlier about all the other things going on in addition to impeachment the the broad expectation is that president trump will not be convicted he will stay in office finish out his term with all that being said the presidential election coming up what is the game here what are the Democrats to take it from that perspective hoping trying to accomplish here well I do think there's a element of trying to change the narrative trump just had a big success signing a trade deal with China that he said he was gonna bring China to their knees and arguably he can he can declare some success and the ratification even in the midst of all this impeachment of the U. S. M. C. A. the trade deal between Canada and US it's quite a feather in his cap I mean he's gonna have a signing ceremony while impeachment is going on showing the American public that he's out there doing the hard work the presidency in in you load on top of that low unemployment and investment breaks great stock market records and and he's got a story to tell that that doesn't include impeachment so I think the fact that the Democrats have made a huge gambit on saying we want to start this year an election year talking about impeachment means they have confidence that somehow this is gonna nor to their benefit sure they're gonna tell yeah all we're doing this because the right thing to do and the country needs to have written you know this this this catharsis because otherwise gosh this guy will be uncontrolled and the remainder of his presidency but the reality is this is all about elections and there is an election in ten months and regardless of what happens with impeachment there's gonna be an up or down vote on Donald Trump and and Democrats I think believe that somehow this is going to help them I think the jury's out just like it is on impeachment Craig when all this is said and done in a few weeks months whatever it is how would one define success for Democrats here is it winning over a few Republican votes is at getting John Bolton up there and and saying embarrassing things about the president what what how would you define success is they're they're democratic fetching involves trying to get no Republican votes the expectation is that if you were down from twenty sixteen you're still gonna go from a twenty twenty year dug in your ear dug in deep and you're gone you're either going up with the server down with the ship this is all aimed at those moderates in the middle and again as we talk about every cycle rate can talk about it better than I can even but you know there are those I think it's people things maybe ten or fifteen percent people kind of in the middle who are like you know twenty sixteen act much care for Hillary from kinda like the cut of trump's J. about love that guy from the apprentice he seems like a real decisive guy I'm gonna roll the dice and take my chances you know three years and they're like oh my gosh what have I done they don't let you talk to Democrats when they do focus groups people say they talk about the tweets like I don't really like to tweets which is become kind of a substitute for like I really like his style like he's got a real not very nice to people in the in the you know whatever so I think that the I mean it's a kind of I don't want to sound so cynical but a lot of this impeachment is aimed at maybe that ten percent fifteen percent twenty percent of the way outside the Democrats think are persuaded bowl you know former trump voters are people least took a took a walk on the trump side of the street maybe could come over to the Democrats and really want to dirty up trump as best they can you know he was he was shady and that way you don't Ukrainians and etcetera I think it's a huge gamble I think you know again as we just talked about a last second if you are not exactly riveted by the impeachment yet at least so far and I think Democrats put a lot of chips on this particular square it may work it may not but what they have what trump has is always of Rick said great economy two or three good trade deals and and a real you know telling his back yeah I would say just to add to that is that part of the play for the Democrats as defensive right I mean if you blow see the speaker of the house did not want to DO impeachment and it was the left wing of her party that forced her into it I mean she resisted resisted and she finally caved in because the one thing they can't afford is a disenfranchised base right I mean Hillary Clinton lost in states like Wisconsin because she underperformed what Barack Obama got there by eight in this case in two thousand sixteen she got two hundred fifty thousand fewer votes than Barack Obama did Donald Trump got twenty thousand fewer votes than Mitt Romney did but was able to beat Hillary Clinton that state because she didn't turn out base so a lot of the democratic strategy is fire up that base make sure they're happy if they deliver at the scale that they did for a bomb it's very hard to see a scenario where Donald Trump wins Craig this of course is going on right is were approaching the first presidential primary in Iowa it is there an easy way to describe what impact it's going to have on on the primary especially with some of the leading candidates not all of them but some of them here in Washington and sitting quietly in their seats drinking well yeah sort of at the tactical level it's a great day for Joe Biden or people to judge because you're not a member the United States Senate and so you're free to is moved to Iowa for the next two weeks and and set up shop for the senators running obviously Sanders and Warren called which are really Michael Bennett is still running for president someone told me today so I guess for senators you know it's it's actually trick here I do think out of the more on the strategic level though this is kind of baked into the cake for democratic primary voters and I will you don't really here the campus talk that much about it it's kind of understood of your democratic primary voters like accepted that you don't much care for Donald Trump weather's being in Peter not impeach or convicted or acquitted it it's all it's sort of like the backdrop against which the whole campaign is being run so the the rallies I attended when I was in I was people I've talked to it doesn't come up that much but I do think it's on the front of the minds of primary voters in one important way which is we need to find a candidate that can beat Donald Trump that's really good news for Joe Biden let's goodness for some of the others but that is really the the sort of the driving force behind the caucuses in the primaries are to come Rick isn't about thirty seconds if you can we get to November where is impeachment in Ukraine where to those rank on the panoply of of the issues that voters are going to think about when they well I think I'm on a piece of it I mean we blow through issues so quickly nowadays because of the mass media and how quickly we cycled through things that I would be surprised that the trend actually carries much weight November I would say though that that that Ukraine scandal will continue all right even though impeachment will end in a couple of weeks they'll still be reporting about these crazy deals that we're trying to be struck and what was happening so I wouldn't be surprised if Ukraine has a doesn't have that were porting on it doesn't have a bigger impact in the impeachment itself okay my thanks to Rick Davis former John McCain national campaign manager in Bloomberg contributor in Craig Gordan Bloomberg's Washington

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

"Reasonable. While being unreasonable. How often from your position within the Senate? Do you come across what is contained in the last couple of that prayer attempting to sound reasonable while being unreasonable? I mean, if you watch C span two, and by the way that was that James Earl Jones, Barry white founded like Barry white. If you watch these men to you hear my gentle friend from the distinguish thing, you know. And so the very structure of the Senate where you have to speak to the chair and not to the Senator, but cloture rue the the whole phenomenon of respectfully filibustering, and that kind of thing it, it can contribute to sounding reasonable while being unreasonable. So it's it's a common phenomenon because that's the nature of the legislative process. And again getting back to that idea of nudging senators with not only your voice, but the contents of your prayer that is a certain amount of calling them out. It's Popeye thing. I've had all I can stands, and I can't stand. No more. Even though I am non-partisans and. It is worth noting. It seems to me in this context that. Both chambers opened with a prayer. The Senate website is I read talks about the separation of church and state, but not state from God. And do you. Imagine as you're putting together your daily prayer that you are speaking for the country to the Senate or just to the Senate for the Senate. I am magin that I am speaking having a conversation with God. Okay. So when I stand behind that after the president pro Tom usually Gabolde me and the Senate will now come to order the chaplain. Dr Barry black relieved the Senate in prayer. When I stand and say, let us spray I get into a zone where I am talking directly to go. But I'm talking directly to God conversational. In the presence of his transcendence with feeling of reverential. And I am articulating not only the needs of the senators and the members of their staffs, but the articulating the needs of the nation and the world I become a mouthpiece for the various people. I am interacting with and the various people whom I hear about. So that when the commandant of the coast guard comes out, and basically says this is what is happening to records. Video and says, my people are suffering. Exactly, I find it unacceptable that coastguard men and women have to rely on food pantries and donations to get through day to day life that servicemembers look how to hang with the coast guard. I used to assign the coastguard Chapman. Really? So it's like getting a missive from home. And so that becomes a part of my prayer. But I am talking to God and vessel. Exact. And it's not the first time that I will be talking to him that day. In fact, I s alone inside seventeen says pray without ceasing prayer is the only thing in the holy bible that we're told to do continuously, and that's another speech in another soliloquy. But that's how powerful prayer can be promised our audience. More of a of a dive into your personal life in the sense of. There's this amazing sound by we have Caccia on its number one.

When is enough enough? I wanna play a clip from guy named anywhere you from thousand eleven take. Okay. There does come a time. When the American public expect us to be able to act gridlock is not what they voted for the priorities that we have agreed to in. This resolution are not my priorities. But we have reached agreement basically have said you have supported things you've had to vote for things you haven't supported before. And it'll happen again shocked. Let me reiterate what we voted for last Thursday. We're Republican bills all Republican bills. No democratic built and we took them as they were passed the Senate. We're going to do the same thing this week the differences will do it by Bill by Bill. So we can help taxpayers. We can help people who need food assistance, and we help people who need housing of. Ouch is people who need flood insurance. We'll do it one by one. I would hope that Mitch McConnell as the leader of the United States Senate would represent the congress of the United States, the Coequal branch that says we believe we ought to open up government Mitch McConnell believes we ought to open up government at the end of the day, you need a presidential signature right at the end of the day. You need a presidential signature government. You may not like any of the ways that the president has conducted himself. How? How he's conducted these negotiations they you could claim they've not been in good faith win. Is it pretty close to winter? When is it your responsibility say these federal workers gotta get paid. And I may have to eat this. We are. We don't think the wall is a good technology to do the objective. This is a substantive argument. The reason I read these Republican views that say the wall is not the technology. We ought to pursue is because this is a difference of substance. We ought to have that argument on the substance and not be held hostage. Eight hundred thousand federal employs millions of people need food stamps. What is your? They're holding them hostage. He and he may be doing this. Visit some point don't these people need to get paid for strengthening border security. And as a matter of fact, one of the positive things that happened in the meeting with big eight as it's called was Senator Durbin brought up the fact that there was insufficient dollars in the in the homeland security Bill to have the technology to to have the electronic ability to see what's in all these trucks coming across our border every day. We're we're prepared to go. She on that. Are you? Let me say anything on offense. Chuck they steal fence. And they doesn't call it a wall. Can you accept that? Chuck let me say we've done fencing in the past as you'll you'll do it in the future does fencing the past. However, what is happening today? And hopefully, the administration will come the administration has not come up with any specific plan as now they're going to spend this money. Now, remember, I understand it was the last guy or is the president said to Mitch McConnell. I will sign this Bill. Mitch McConnell signed a Bill. He sent it to the house. We were prepared to vote for that. How for that Bill? But the Republicans wanted to shut down the government we need to open up government. And then go she ate not the other way around because we're prepared to negotiate and we're prepared to have the homeland security Bill approved for short term. So that we have to negotiate is an impeachment process evitable. No, don't think impeachment processes is inevitable, and that's not what we're focused on. We're focused on subsidy bills. Then we got to focus on getting the government open. That's our primary I responsible way to distraction. I think peach. Talks right now are distraction. We'll have to see what the Muller report says Nancy, and I have both said that we voted that way on the floor of the house represents what we wanna do is concentrate on our subsidy..

Who about to be sworn in? To the United States Senate tomorrow. Republican from Utah parties twenty twelve nominee for president former governor of Massachusetts and savior of the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics. I mean that in actual truth. He that that Olympics was a disaster falling apart he came in. And actually pulled it together. I give him a ton of credit for that. And I did when I did not vote for him in the two thousand twelve campaign. I just I did not think that he was the best choice to be all where president that year. I did not. And I have some respect for Mitt Romney as very successful businessman. He seems like a very rational person he doesn't seem very in touch with the average American and that's fine. Not you don't not everybody is. And he's not always the best. But as far as he's a Republican from Utah and his principles I have respect for that. And again, I have respect for the successes. He has had in his career in life. And I know he was born with money. And that's fine. Some people born with money completely fail. He has not.

"If Democrats now that they have power in states don't make moves immediately to shore up the Voting Rights Act too short voting rights because Republicans have shown how they react to demographic disaster. They suppress those votes they go after those voters and try to make it hard for them to vote. So Democrats who have now gotten back a lot of states need to start protecting voting rights in those states. And Niro when you look at the results of the United States Senate, the Republicans holding on a not very impressively but holding on and that's because Democrats had a more than double the number of Senate seats to defend than Republicans. Did that? Gets reversed two years from now and Republicans will have almost double the number of seats to defend than than Democrats will. And so Democrats will have that massive statistical advantage just going into it. And if you're Mitch McConnell, and you watch what happens to the house representatives. You have to have a very strong fear that the United States Senate is next. I mean, I have to say the map in two years is much better. It's almost night and day. And really, I think it is interesting to look at to look at what's happening in the states that that Republicans will be in just taking example, Colorado, Colorado flipped and important house seat. But the entire state almost the entire state wide races went democratic they they have really become a blue state and Cory Gardner has been hook line and sinker with Donald Trump. Susan Collins, his really just did everything she could to help Cavanaugh in the end. You know, she she faces a very changed map. Not only did a democrat. The governor's race Democrats made real gains in may. And it seems you know, there's a lot of change at the congressional level. So I would say what's fascinating about this is looking under the cover. There's been so many transformations the Iowa delegation went from three Republicans one democrat to three Democrats one Republican at the house level. They're really big changes across the country in a way that should make Republicans in the Senate and in the White House, deeply skeptical. But let me just say one word, which is joy is absolutely right. When Republicans come into power, they think about ways to suppress vote. It's critical the Democrats come into power and expand the vote joy Reid. Ted Jared Bernstein. Thank you all for starting us off tonight. Really appreciate it.

Next to the Senate majority whip John Cornyn request last Friday was for seven days up to seven days for additional supplemental background investigation by the FBI. And is the Georgia. Leroy said we will get that. But now you're starting to hear new arguments be made since they realized that everything the witnesses had previously told judiciary committee under oath under penalty felony. They're likely to tell the FBI the same thing. It would make sense to me. But now they want to focus on judge Kavanagh's high school yearbook. Give me a break. I just shows the sort of desperation. The other side has to not only denied the nominee a fair and dignified confirmation process, but to turn this into a three ring circus, and now we're talking about throwing ice on somebody. When you're in college disqualifying you from a seat on the United States Supreme court. This is not been a search for the truth. This has been about search and destroy in the process, shutting up precedent. We will regret for the rest of our lives where an unproven accusation is enough to deny somebody confirmation in the United States Senate, and in fact, as Rachel Mitchell pointed out, the confirmation was all in favor of judge Kavanagh's position that what was alleged never happened. Joe this is about whether we're going to continue to have a presumption of innocence due process of law fairness listened to both sides. And that's what's happened so far. But in a way that we should never have turned out. Into the spectacle that it has primarily because the ranking member shot on the accusation of July thirtieth creating the circumstance we have now. But what we're seeing is just one excuse after another to continue delaying delaying delaying the majority leaders called for which is a vote this week after we get the FBI supplemental background investigation.

"Being spent in sixty eight countries and you look at the United States, boy, this our opportunity. Let's drive it to the hilt. We have an opportunity loss course cost in what is happening now and nobody's reckoning that in Washington, the members of the United States Senate, this is what the Senate was defined for this moment. And it is a moment that calls on them to do things that are necessary to stop gap. What Donald Trump is either not doing not capable of doing and their whole bunch of things I think, but the biggest single opportunity we have right now, I think is twenty eight teen. We can have a course correction in our own democracy that actually revitalizes our democracy and again, right about that. And in the book, I mean, go go back to nineteen seventy-one. So to seventy one is when I protest the war, Richard Nixon was very popular. Then he carried forty nine states in seventy two one year later he was gone. Why? Because people did their jobs institutions that were there stood up and resist it. When I look at this memo that when the New York Times says senior, they mean senior and they would not have published this because they know the consequences. If they didn't have confidence, they know who it is and. I think we have to therefore understand the implications of of of of what this person has done. Would I prefer others here would that it were public short, but it doesn't diminish the consequence. What oughta be secretary, Kerry the message of Democrats twenty eighteen. You've seen some i-on Presley winning in Massachusetts, for example, knocking off work for fifteen years. Is that right? At great late? Knock off a twenty year incumbent there. What? What is the my notes district by district, but what's the message if it's not just anti-donald Trump what is the democrat message? What cuts through this message? Absolutely shouldn't be just adult. Everybody understands us. We're wasting too much time on the tweets and on the daily beloved him. Frankly, we've gotta talk about America's agenda. We have to offer a better way of meeting the needs of the American people. Citizens on the right citizens on the left are equally angry at their lot in life. Because their needs are not being that. And when you have fifty two percent of America's income going to one percent of Americans, you haven't unsustainable, political quesion. Everybody in America knows this. And the reason you went from Gingrich revolution to party to freedom caucus to Donald Trump and hostile takeover of the Republican party was frustration with the lack of adequate response. So we have in two months, a referendum on Donald Trump on all of this, but it won't work if we're not offering America way to show the institutions can work how they work. And again, I come back to the book. I think I show in the book again and again, how the the Senate could work my what it was like when I came there in the nineteen eighties when it was functioning and we were able to get things done, we balanced the budget, the nineteen ninety s folks. And here we are with a completely dysfunctional Washington that also is living in a. Kind of insidious corruption that comes from the money in American politics and the unwillingness of people to perform their constitutional responsibility. Let's talk about what happens when you disagree with the executive when you disagree with the president states, and let's talk about Syria, and you gave a speech in the summer to three summers ago about the need to take on Syria, the red line, the whole thing and everything like that. That evening the day that you gave the speech, the president United States walks around the south one with Denis McDonough chief of staff, and they changed the direction that you would taking. What happens internally when you disagree with the decision made by the president? Well, Michael, I think it depends on what the consequence of the decision is on occasion you may feel you have to reside in this IRAs Vance did when the decision was made in desert one, when they tried to make a rescue in the hostages and failed different moments, different consequences in this.

That's why we love Joe Biden. And that's why he's gonna run in twenty twenty because he understands this whole Senate collegiality thing there's one hundred of them and they're big shots. And under the crazy system of electing citizen representatives to a legislature these one hundred guys have big retinues than your average Gulf. You can see them. Now when you look at this this hearing that's going on. Today where they're being fed questions responses and all the rest of it by the staffers who do all the work behind them. You see them these guys I did things make as I've testified in the Canadian parliament spoken in other parliaments. And generally speaking, the member of parliament, the people on the committee. They just sit there. There's no one testified in the house of Commons in Ottawa. There was nobody behind them. They had to actually think for themselves, and you watch these guys in the being fed by their the their vast retinues said the size of your average Gulf feeding them all the talking points. I was up against I spoke at some Senate hearing, I was I was sending Tamaki was that this guy from Massachusetts whose daughter to be one of the dentist and most low grade Senate considering only one hundred people at a three hundred thirty million get to be senators the idea that this guy is one of the. One hundred out of three hundred million is incredible. But he's there with this kind of slightly weird. Rick to smile on his face as he's being fed is lines by the staff is behind him pitiful sight, actually, I tend you while I'm attacking the US Senate. Let me warm to my theme. I hate everything about the place. I was watching these protesters today, and it reminded me that when I was speaking that they let some Greenpeace guys into the room. They were the equivalent of the crazies who was shouting during the hearing today, these Greenpeace guys, and I was speaking with some distinguished scientists. Some of whom were like getting up there in years and. My belief is that actually Democrats staffers had let these people into the room, and the Greenpeace guys were in there to physically intimidate, some of the other witnesses, which they we doing to this one guy, and I sort of walked in not terribly click on what's going on. And if you Google there's a little clip of me on YouTube confronting water, the which I look at usually Butch for a defeat Canadian guest host mainly because actually when I do see some of these I did like it. I the idea that you have this this. They let in intentionally let in people to disrupt the hearing and intimidate witnesses is disturbing to me, and it makes no difference for them. Because the way these stupid hearing rooms set up which is true in the having reminders in whatever. One Kamina business is taking place in it's absolutely absurd. They the height. All of the desks for the senators, and where down there below our citizens down there below in in in this like pitch, while they're way above us. It's completely who's fat insecure. You know, the old joke about when you go you cold into see your boss, and he's going to hold you over the carpet and your boss is at a normal level chair, and yours is two inches below him to give him an edge. A new C can talk down to you these things they these stupid hearing rooms where these guys are looking down on. I mean cabin is a judge a judge gets to sit a little bit high just a little bit higher than the lawyers and the parties in the witnesses and so forth. These guys like crazy with the seating in this thing with the in in the United States in the United States Senate. But again. And the mayor of Kuwait O backslapping together, the differences that the Democrats like like Biden. I never, you know, you don't impugn a man's character. You just attack him on the policies and all the rest of it. And then he's next minute. He's happy to say Republicans wanna put you in chains. That's they the Republicans take all the bipartisan Twaddell, seriously, the Democrats. It's just third rate cheesy dinner theater for them. And then and they're very careful not to forget the difference there. But I will say I will say that this this business of going to the San I was when I saw these demonstrators today these protesters it is odd to me. The way, and I have to believe from the way how you get into that building. But if it is so August and deliberative you come bust into the county courthouse and start carrying on the way these people do today. Why is it the Democrats, and it is Democrats staffers who do this you don't find? Generally speaking, you go in, and it's it's tea party groups or right wing protesters, or whatever why is all this stuff necessary to them, the physical, intimidation, the protests and all the rest of it. Something is underway in the democrat party. And you see it you you you can actually sometimes when you watch these these fellas on the democrat side of this committee, the the ones who've been there for one hundred and thirty is like, Pat, Lahey and Dianne Feinstein and all the rest of them. You can see there raffled you look in their eyes. They they understand their own. They've they. They've lived long enough in office to witness their own obsolescence.

This a little bit earlier but it seems like the last time President Trump received this much, of a blowback from both sides of the aisle was, in the aftermath of the deadly Charlottesville demonstrations last summer I guess are there parallels to be drawn between the two incidents in terms of how much of lov long lasting damage could be done to, Trump, politically here Sure well one of the similarities I would say this the way in which the president talked about both sides of the issue when most Americans you know had made or believe that there aren't..
