"unity reform commission" Discussed on The Lead with Jake Tapper

"Positions where. Even if it's not a plurality or majority of the delegates they might also go into a contested convention That is you know the Bernie. Sanders was trying to operate in two thousand sixteen when there is two people there so I don't think it's that big of a change. I think it's politicians seizing on moments For the Democratic Front runner. And it's another moment where it shows the strength. It's very politically craven. I mean senator. Sanders is acting like a politician. He is now the front runner so he wants the rules. That will work better for him. That's what it feels like. It's so disturbing because having also worked on not Hillary's campaign but on the platform committee there was so much work done to try to accommodate senator sanders and so many changes were made ironically to the caucus system which ended up being problematic and specifically this whole change on super delegates. This is what he wanted and here it is and now he's saying no no no no no no no. I don't want to hear such a convener share but I think a lot of people that I also know that are on the unify. The Unity Reform Commission also tried to get to abolish super delegates. That is Bernie Sanders. Position is to abolish super delegates. Because are not a democratic way of being able to do things and now the compromise position for that was to have the scenario that we have right now so I think it's also early as disingenuous. The able to suggest that he is taking a stance. Here that's different. When he super diller. Can we be honest going into the convention? It wasn't just that you had more delegates and super delegates. She had three million more votes so if we were going why did he decided to campaign with her twenty six different rallies so I think that got be grudgingly. You went through this with the Republican Conventions Thousand Sixteen. Well we don't have super delegates. Let the voters decide. And we don't give extra weight to someone because they happen to be a former elected official in the establishment to kind of fix the process so for me as a Republican watching this I think Senator Sanders is consistent. Because it's consistent messages. Don't steal this from me. What are you what. That's consistent message both times in don't have the DNC chair have to resign the night before the convention because it's being stolen from me about the trump campaign is sanders. Mike's doing that now. Because they think they can beat sanders was easily. But you know it's all this delegates. Nice half a million South Carolinians are gonNA vote tomorrow. Yup The first primary not a caucus a truly diverse state. And let's see what the results are. Let's see whether we're so confident. After that the Senator Sanders cruising towards the majority or even a very high priority and delegates. Okay let's do that. We'll see we'll reconvene everyone stick around Republican outrage over president. Trump's peace deal with the Taliban and America's longest war. That's next stay with us at the making of history. Cnn presents a story of the world's most famous royal family the windsors inside the Royal Dynasty Sundays at ten on CNN. The wait is over coming to H. L. N. All new episodes of forensic files follow the evidence and crack the case. For instance foils to Sundays at tag only on H. L. in our world lead now top Republican lawmakers voicing their fears about the pending peace deal with the Taliban expected to be inked tomorrow in Cutter Secretary of State. Mike pompeo on hand in a letter to Pompeo and Secretary of Defense Mark has twenty one members including the chair of the House Republican Conference Liz Cheney Right. The Taliban is a quote terrorist group that celebrate suicide attacks adding quote. We're seeking assurances that you will not place the security of the American people into the hands of the Taliban and undermine our alley the current ally the current government of Afghanistan the Afghan government says the agreement could give a victory to the jihadist group. Cnn's Barbara Starr at the Pentagon for US Barbara. What is expected from this steel? And what might it mean for? Us troops in Afghanistan. Well take the idea. Is that right now if this all works? Us will be able to draw down. Bring some troops home rather quickly twelve thirteen thousand there right now. Come down to eighty six hundred troops in Afghanistan still there fight the remnants of al-Qaeda and the Isis. That's the whole idea. If all of this works they ink the deal tomorrow. That's the schedule. But on this question of secret annexes there may be good reason for congresswoman Liz Cheney to be asking these questions because right now none of the documents have exactly been made public. The world has not seen what everybody especially the? Us plans to side. There are indications the administration says we're not entering into some new cooperative relationship with the Taliban but a lot of questions a lot of worry. Look it has been a very long war. This is a war that ends with diplomacy more than two thousand troops killed in this war. Jake I'm Barbara. Speaking of US Servicemembers Secretary of State Pompeo was on Capitol Hill today and he was questioned extensively by Democratic congressman. Brad Sherman about how the president downplayed the impact of a very serious problem. Traumatic brain injury. This of course after the Iranian strike in Iraq last month affected more than one hundred. Us servicemembers causing TV. I well you know here at the Pentagon we just had a lengthy briefing from top military doctor about what the military is trying to do to help troops suffering from these injuries and then we had pompilio today which made it very bizarre to listen to his tone. Have a listen to that exchange on Capitol Hill nineteen days after That those injuries the president said I heard they had headaches. I can report. It's not very serious. Thirty of them are still in the hospital. All of them will be suffering their whole lives. Do you want to take the opportunity here? Today to apologize to those servicemembers for trivializing their injuries to congressman. I never trivialize the end. What do you want to apologize on? Behalf of the administration for trivializing their industries. Sir I've never trivialized any injury. We take seriously every American service members live. It's why we've taken the very policies in Iran that we have. Well look what we have right now is about one hundred. Twelve troops reported with mild traumatic brain injury. Thankfully many of them have been able to return to duty. Jake our Barbara Starr at the Pentagon. Thanks so much tune in this Sunday morning for CNN state of the Union. I'm going to sit down with Vice President Mike Pence to discuss the latest on the White House response to the corona virus and we're also going to have Democratic presidential candidate former vice president Joe Biden fresh off. Whatever happens tomorrow in South Carolina? It's all at nine. Am Noon eastern on Sunday questions about CDC screening as fee?.

"Trump was pulling a thirty percent thirty seven percent on election night all right so he called the clinton hack and that's not surprising that's the whole point of this story then he quotes another clinton hack clinton's spokesman nick meryl's just tweeted about bernie sanders running as an independent in vermont because of course he's up for the senate election again there which he will crush and he will win super easily so that's not an interesting article that would applaud bernie sanders we can't have that we can't have that so he quotes a tweet seriously oh well i do declare what what stunningly good point so finally though so he's the clinton people are feeding and why the way the clinton people why do you still exist why don't you go joanne hillary in the woods you guys are the miserable failures who donald trump so i've got to really really talk less of shut up juice for you guys i mean think about the dass ity of clinton spokespeople clinton supporters coming around tell us how to win elections you the trump you lost the trump gopi a plumber go being accountant go sell us car somewhere do something useful with your life but you're obviously not very good at politics so he quotes them and that's where he got fed the story in the first place but that's not really the point of this story so here's the line that gives away the actual point of this exercise quote the move also comes at a time when sanders supporters are pushing for changes to the presidential nominating process as part of the democratic national committee unity reform commission one priorities to open up the party's primaries to voters who aren't registered as democrats.

"Is now out from crown publishing and a jump and let's let's take a look at the influence of the sanders vote clearly it was amazing and i'm sure for the sanders people very distressing to learn the extent to which the fix was in at the democratic national committee level that is to say the supposedly neutral arbiter in all the primaries and caucuses centers people were apoplectic about what they saw as the fixed being in within the democratic party a party trying to get hillary clinton nominated that was not in their view fair to bernie sanders or fair to the democratic voters or the new voters who didn't necessarily identifies democrats before this election one of the things that aiming i report on in the afterward which is new in the paperback just out today is this battle for the soul of the democratic party and the carcass of the democratic national committee which is in tatters after the election we have a scene where tom perez the dnc chairman goes up to talk to bill clinton about his plans for the dnc and bill clinton doesn't really wanna listen to him about you know how much money gonna raise or what he's gonna do with the party bill clinton wants to do is get across the message as we report and does get across the message the tom perez is job is to prevent the bernie sanders wing of the democratic party from taking the party over in the aftermath of hillary clinton's loss and we've seen that play out over the last several months as the party has put together a unity for perform commission with the goal of rewriting the party's rules it is called the unity reform commission but the the unity part is lacking is basically the strength of the clinton appointees versus the strength of the sanders appointees with a little bit of crossover every every now and again but make no mistake there was a huge battle still going on between these two sides and you know a lot of people in washington don't wanna talk about this while the democrats in washington don't wanna talk about it but the biggest force right now in the democratic party is the bernie sanders electorate now amy i recall when the super delegates began after the nineteen seventytwo convention with the democrats of course we're we're trying to move very very far to the.

"Democratic party more like a hillary clinton democratic party more somebody we haven't heard how do you deal with the bernie supporters and the people who believe the democrats should be even further left of the republicans i think it was critically important joshua and i knew this from the outset that we needed to bring the party together the first thing i did when i got elected was to ask keith ellison my friend the congressman from minnesota to join me as the deputy chair because we both understood that our unity is our greatest asset and the good news is i see our unity is what has enabling us to win elections i i met a number of people in virginia and the run up to the election they're and they said to me tom i was a bernie supporter in the primary i see what you're trying to do to bring the party together i support that we have bigger fish to fry and we need to continue to come together and that's what we've been doing winning elections we still have more work to do and that's why what we're doing joshua on our unity reform commission we're not rebuilding our organizing apparatus and our technology we have to rebuild trust and i get that every single day and what the unity commission is going to be doing and what the dnc will be doing in the months ahead is among other things reducing the influence of super delegates that's a one question and that will happen this summer you got playing and we will be also making sure that caucuses are more accessible there will be less caucuses in twenty twenty then in two thousand sixteen and in those states that still run caucuses they're going to have to make sure that if you're a shift worker you don't have to win the boss lottery to vote we're also doing remarkable stuff to make sure that people have access to voting because voter suppression is a staple in the republican playbook and we're working together with our partners in the progressive community to make sure that we're making it easier for eligible people to vote one last question before we let you go i feel like part of your job as the party chairman is to talk about why and not just about how but for democrats who've been listening to our.
