"Back with congresswoman. Val demings sunny. Congresswoman I! Want to ask you about corona virus given the shocking rise in Florida cases, the state has really come under scrutiny for the accuracy and transparency of their reporting on numbers after a scientists and created Florida's Covid nineteen dashboard says she was fired after she refused to make changes to data supporting the state's plan to reopen. Do you think your state is being on with case totals at this point? Well. Let me, say this. The Surgeon General here in Florida declared a public health emergency on March first yet. It wasn't until April third. The governor issued a stay at home order. So we've had some issues with our response to covert nineteen We know the story about the analysts who was fired. She says because she was being honest about what she was reporting. We certainly see the numbers in Florida while they are better than originally predicted I leave. A lot of that is because individuals took responsibility on their own to shelter in place and practice the CDC guidelines. We've had some questions about even the numbers coming out of our nursing homes. Here in Florida there's always been this question about the numbers that have been reported. Were they accurate and so we are still keeping an eye on that. We're still trying to make sure as we reopen Florida and. It's it's unbelievable, but as the numbers rise, prepare for. The Republican National Convention. We're still keeping an eye on the numbers and trying to make sure that we are doing everything that we can to give individual families and others accurate information, so they can protect themselves. Steward this very critical time. Congresswoman president trump is bringing back his campaign rallies, and he had planned one on Friday June nineteenth, the anniversary known as June eighteenth, he has now moved the rally one day later amidst mounting pressure and criticism and everyone who attends his rally sign a waiver, assuming risks related to Cova did trump says they've already had over eight hundred thousand ticket requests clearly, these rallies were effective for him in the last election. What do you think president? Vice President Biden can do. and His campaign right now to counter what president trump is doing? Well, I commend Vice President Biden for being the adult in the room. We are in the middle of a public health crisis. I am thankful that Vice President. Biden is listening to the CDC, our medical experts and scientists. And continuing to practice social distancing look, he's getting his message out. He sailed some very important burchell rallies and address the nation of about many things including racism and social injustices. He's talked about CDC and what he or the covert nine hundred and what he believes needs to happen. The president on the other hand obviously is Jesper. And word about the upcoming election in November, and for the individuals that he is inviting to come to a rally. I've dealt with evidence and clues for a long time in my career. When you have to sign a medical waiver saying that you want, hold the president responsible. If you contract covert nineteen is a pretty good clue that the president should not be hold in rally. This is yet another opportunity for the president of the United States to put people first. And yet again, he just can't seem to find it within himself to do that. Well, we're going to take another break and come back with Congresswoman Val demings. We are bad. What congresswoman VAL demings joy! So Congresswoman Terry. McAuliffe A prominent. Democrat and Joe Biden supporter. well. He thinks that the former vice president should remain in his Delaware homes baseman for the rest of the two thousand twenty presidential campaign. Actually he's very safe down there and they should let trump keep doing what he's doing. What do you think of that strategy? You know just as we are doing this interview this morning. Look, I would much rather be there with you all in the studio talking to you, but zoom has become like my second best friend. SKYPE is like my second best friend teams like my second best friend. We have to find a way to get it done. Because we all realize we've had over two million people contract Cova nineteen. Hundred and twelve thousand. Plus have died as a result of this virus, and so I believe that leads I said earlier I. Thankful that Vice President by is being. The adult in the room is listened to medical professionals and scientists and plan it safe, but still finding a way just as we are today to get his message out and rally Everybody I think people are excited. We were disappointed in two thousand sixteen, but you know. Know what we didn't have in two thousand sixteen we had. We didn't have four years of the current occupant of the White House I. Think People are excited and more motivated than others as we deal with some critical issues, some have been around for centuries. Some are new. The vice president is finding a way to get his message out, and we appreciate him. doing it in a safe and responsible way. Also having said that. How welcome is you know who gonNA BE? In Jacksonville Knowing that you know it's kind of going to be a breeding ground for this. Calvin one thousand nine hundred comeback, and is the city of Jacksonville really ready to handle that many people coming in from all kinds of places with all kinds of stuff. I would say based on what medical experts and scientists say no. Jacksonville is my hometown I was born and raised in Jacksonville. Presidents taken the. Republican National Convention here in Orlando, he had his kickoff for his reelection. In My district, but let me just say this it boils down to do. You have the ability to put the people that you represent I and as we continue to see numbers. Go Up in Florida. Why on Earth would you push to have the convention here and bring tens of thousands of people here and expose them risk their health. The health safety and wellbeing of the American people is the president of the United. States number one responsibility, but obviously he does not know that and does not understand that. Well he if he didn't know before he certainly knows now. Thanks to congresswoman VAL demings We will be right back..

"Halston and Megan McCain. Now. Let's get things started. Hello and welcome to the view before we get to the outrage over the shooting death of Rashard Brooks in Atlanta, we want to address a Huffington Post article from this weekend about ABC News Senior Vice President of talent and Business Affairs Barbara for data. The article cited unnamed sources, claiming that for Dita made racist and derogatory comments about several members of staff. Here's a statement from ABC News Management. There are deeply disturbing allegations in the story that we need to investigate, and we have placed Barbara for data on administrative leave, while we conduct a thorough and complete investigation of these allegations to not represent values and culture of ABC News where we strive to make everyone feel respected in a thriving diverse and inclusive workplace, Barbara for data also released this statement. I'm proud of my decades of work hiring supporting and promoting talented journalists of color, and unlike these heartbreaking and incredibly misleading claims about me. That track record is well documented and undeniable now one him for alleged statements. Mentioned juice sunny. Anything, you want to say what need to say. Yeah I think I should say something A. It was a tough weekend for me and I was really disappointed and saddened and hurt when I learned about the racist comments that were made allegedly about me, my colleagues and my dear friends, because if true. To Reference Robin Roberts. Who is one of the most respected and beloved journalists in our country as picking cotton to reference me someone who's been very open about having grown up in public housing as being low rent to reference Candice Gipson. Who is was my mate at ABC and now is in MSNBC, anger to say that he isn't worth paying as much as ABC would pay for toilet, paper. The fact that Marris given COMPO, who is a friend and a former colleague at ABC? The fact that she has an NDA in place and can't talk about her experiences at ABC tells me that. Systemic racism touches everything and everyone in our society regardless of social stature. No one is immune. It's the type of racism that black people deal with every single day and it has to stop. And I look forward to the results of what I hear is going to be an independent external investigation and I felt very loved and supported by my colleagues. I felt supported by all of you I. Know Megan I had at least an hour conversation this weekend. What be you were so supportive? Joy? You were so supportive. Executive producers on the show were so supportive. And I. Thank you all for that, but again. This has got to stop. And I just look forward to changes if all of this is true here at ABC and just in our country. Joy Anything YOU WANNA add? I'm very sorry. That has been hurt by this as she said. We stick without girls where we support each other. I think it's great that ABC is doing a intensive investigation. This type of thing has to be rooted out and we'll see what happens. That's all I have to add to what you already said. How `Bout you, Megan. Look I echo. What everyone's saying about an independent investigation? Look. All of us has zero tolerance for any kind of racism or intolerance period. Sunday night did have a long conversation this weekend. She's in the water pain and I am disgusted by these allegations as everyone is and I just WanNa. Make one thing really clear. There's a lot of people a lot of things about these hosts, the show and the press, but when you attack one of us, you're attacking all of us and I stand in support sunny throughout all of this in any way that you need, and I support my colleagues at ABC who've been attacked by this and again. We don't know the answer to it, but. This is a really hard time in our country. And I think hitting this close to home in in this show that we have really been good soldiers through throughout the pandemic throughout the political season throughout all this. This one's a tough blow. have to. I'm about to say it. You know I know Barbara for data and I'm. I don't think she's racist. Everything I know about her doesn't say that she has the sent her. But I will say that one of the things that everyone should always make sure we say, and I say it. All the time is less find out. Let's find out because if it's true. She's gone. But if it's not, let's find out what's going on. An independent investigation is what this needs because. The days of systemic racism are ending. Those walls are coming down and we're pulling them down so. I feel like having lived through this kind of thing where someone accused me of doing something I didn't do I'm always I'm always first and foremost to say okay. Let's find out what really is the truth. And once we find out what the truth is will deal with it because nobody can deal with this anymore. There's too much stuff happening in the world, no reason for anybody to be in this kind of pain so. This out there we know you. We know you and if you turn out to be in the walls of the building with tearing the building down, you're coming out. We'll be right back. His words and actions have moved millions now tomorrow, the brother of George,.

"Are lineup and dedicates the last few tapings season to supporting the black lives matter movements to spreading the word to becoming. Becoming an ally and to that end, we have Atlanta Mayor Kisha. Lance bottoms, who was amazing throughout all this? CNN commentator Van Jones Really Guy Dr Bernice King Daughter of the Reverend Dr Martin Luther King Congresswoman Val, Jennings from Florida whose incredible I just think she's awesome, and Ellen and twitch talk about the problem with staying silent I'm glad Mary. Connolly I'm married. I'm Andy. I'm Mary Connolly. That's why I. Wait till the end and I'm killing the second. Back. Is Ellen on the go and east podcast Andy created it. He runs. It is responsible for all the content and he has it all from a lying down position. Higher interesting last couple of weeks Yeah, a spin a sad couple of weeks it. It's it's has some hope in there. I feel I feel like all the protesting is actually making a difference. Things are changing yes i. feel a lot of all. Hope Right Manila. Right I feel I feel all kinds of emotions from. I feel sad I feel ashamed for for not stepping up and being more active myself individually sooner in my life earlier in my life, but I do also I feel committed, but I do also feel hope that this I mean I'm fifty six and a half years old, and this is the first time I have felt this level of ground swell of support to end the horrible injustices that black people had faced for hundreds of years and are still. Still, facing, in two thousand twenty do feel hope based on these last two weeks. Yeah, I would say I would say the same I would say going to the protests. This weekend made me feel like I was actually doing something really tangible. In addition to obviously the shows we produce the guests you mentioned and was giving money where I can felt like to be part of that group into field at something was definitely different. 'cause I've been to protest. And there was something about the feeling of these protests this weekend. That felt different to me and I think. What we talked about on the show is this can't just be a moment. In time. It has to be sort of the new time the new this is how it's going to be. I mean as we speak the Minneapolis City Council has voted to dismantle Minneapolis police force and start over with a force committed to serving their community. That's that's that's hugh amazing. And that's immediately remarkable to me, is because of the outrage, and because of the protesting and because of the everyone using their voices together. The black community, the white community, just everybody saying no more. It's not okay and like head. It takes everyone you know. Sometimes it takes people. Different Times different things to wake up, but there's definitely an awakening I think as someone who has a platform for an hour a day on TV. It's incumbent upon us. Ellen to to keep that away inning, go. An I've done a fair amount of reading and a lot of listening over the last couple of weeks I've signed petitions and I've I've donated, and and part of that is. You know if you're if you're like me, your feeling horrible about your role in it I think that's part of it, and it can just sit in. An acknowledged an try to be active moving forward, so one thing that we thought would be valued today to our listeners is to just plus. is to just play a lot of flips of the powerful voices that we were able to book on very little notice are amazing talent department, so let's start with Mayor Kisha Lance bottoms. We saw her on a Friday night maybe ten days ago, speaking to Atlanta, trying to get the violent protests to stop, and she enlisted the help of killer Mike, who is half of run the jewels, and who's also a social activist? And he and he's amazing. She's amazing and we booked her on our show to talk about it. and. Let's just let's play a nice extended clip of mayor. Kisha Lance bottoms from the great city of Atlanta. So you've come down really really hard on all the violent protests in the looting. That's going on but you do acknowledge that that they're just angry and they don't know how to channel that anger. Yeah, absolutely right and Atlanta's a home of the civil rights movement. That's no secrets. We're used to protest into two gatherings and untrue organization, but what we saw happening in our city on. On. Friday was not in that spirit at all I understand the anger and the frustration because I'm feeling it I'm watching. My Children Billick, too, but we also saw that there was just a need for disruption from some and I went back today, and I pulled the appeal for human rights. It was a document that was drafted Aisin's students when they Atlanta. University Center Rosaline folk. SPELMAN student, and it was a very succinct document that was put together during the civil rights movement that outlined exactly what their grievances were in the resolution that they were seeking and I think that as a conversation that we have to move towards now we are. We have articulated agreements is we're angry, but now we've got formalize it, so we'll know what the point of satisfaction is in this country, and they're so much work to be done. Yes, at, but but I think a lot. Lot of especially a lot of the young people are saying. The peaceful protests didn't work because we're still in a situation like this, so the peaceful I feel like there's there has to be I've spoken with with Tyler Perry about this and and you know a lot of people like there has to be a plan even today when I pulled the appeal for human rights at the students drafted in the nineteen sixties. I send it over to killer Mike and what I. I sit him is we've got lead this conversation and create a troop framework on our young people don't have any direction, and there is no clear leadership We been through this before and a often quote. Audrey lowered. Revolution is not a one time event. Peaceful protests in this country got results. We got through the civil rights movement, and we have been moving forward in this country or very very long time, but it didn't happen in an instant in the same way one protest is. Is Not going to make everything suddenly go away and change. It's gotTa be a framework for us to to know exactly what it is that we want. We know that we'd want men and women not to be killed on our streets. That's a very easy answer, but the reality is if we don't change our policies in. We don't acknowledge address the systematic issues that have gotten us to this point today then we're going to be in this state of chaos for a very long time. and. I think that is such an important point, because as a as a white father I have never had to say to my kids. Be careful when you go out there, be careful for the police, and when you are a black child in this country and I've explained this to my thirteen year old twins. This is something you go through every day you. You wake up every morning and know you are black, and you know that you are going out there, and you are going to be in a level of potential danger that my two sons will never have to understand and I appreciate your saying then and I I was even thinking back to after Ferguson having a conversation with my son and him Santa, me. Mom You have no idea how hard it is to be a black orna mayor. And I remember his anguish, and in his pain, and what it? What struck me today as I was thinking about Ferguson is at for.

She's a democratic congresswoman from Orlando Florida. demings began her career as a social worker became a cop, and then rose to become chief of the Orlando Police Department, the first woman to do so. She's also on the shortlist of Women Joe, Biden. Is a reportedly considering as his running in a column in Friday's Washington Post. demings wrote as a former woman in blue. Let me begin with my brothers and sisters in blue. What in the hell are you doing? And Bow demings joins me now from Orlando Congressman, demings welcome to meet the press. And, let me start with simply this. We've been through this cycle before. In America a lot this last decade incident like the one with toward floyd happens. There's outrage. The country has some sort of collective conversation about race and inequality. And then what happens not much changes? Why do you think that is the case and is there? What do you think is the possibility of making this time different? Trick I really do believe that we can you know when I think about the extraordinary work that Dr King did for example in the civil rights movement, and those who were with them. Look at where we are, it is a ever changing ever. You know commitment that we always have to make to deal with the TIM systemic racism in our country I. Think before as we've. Dealt with misconduct involving police officers that we've always. Tried to deal with it as an individual department or an individual city or an individual state. But I do believe the time has certainly come. We are overdue for us to look at the problem as a nation, I think we all need to pause in every law enforcement agency in this nation whether they are ten percents or thirty five thousand persons need to review their hiring standards their training standards. Look at their de escalation training that they're doing within the department. Look at those officers who train other officers because we know our training officers are the ones who set the standard for what's acceptable and unacceptable on the street, and we have to continue to work with our community leaders to build relationships to foster trust and we don't wait to do that. You know to when we in the middle of a crisis. We have to continue to do that every day and I do believe we are long overdue for every law enforcement agency in our nation to review itself and come out better than before. Let me ask this though it does seem look. At Minneapolis, a lot of people have praised the police chief in Minneapolis. He's put in. He was brought in after they had. They had some issues in the past. He was brought in to institute these reforms. Which you've dealt with this as a chief it's very hard. If you've got a police officer that you think isn't isn't on. The Up isn't good. In Situ in certain situations? It's very hard for you to get rid of one of those police officers. Is it not? Let me say this chuck. Twenty seven years at the Orlando Police Department had the honor of serving as the chief of police I've worked with some of the brightest the best and most courageous men and women that America has to offer. Certainly, they were not all that way, but the overwhelming majority were and so I, come in. The chief in Minnesota because he did one thing that I certainly. Think helped to bring charges against one officer. We're waiting to see others. But that was to immediately fire that officer, which allowed the chief to do some things that otherwise they would not have been able to do, and so while I know that it seemed like the days that passed before the officer was arrested. If you look historically, that was pretty swift. arrests that was made and so I do believe working collectively every shariff, every police chief throughout the nation, working together and facing racism in other issues. Head on to make sure. What are they dealing with? Is a bad mine. A person who should have never been a law enforcement officer in the beginning. Is it a bad? Bad Heart because you certainly have to have the heart for this job, or is it bad policy and while I know the federal government does not have direct jurisdiction I certainly believe that we do have a major role to play in terms of helping law enforcement agencies throughout the nation. Maybe come up with some standards for hiring and training especially use of force training. I want to go a little bigger picture here in in some ways. Of the last three months have been particularly hard on communities of, but particularly the African American community you look at the impact of of of the corona virus on health outcomes impact of the virus on the on the economic picture now throw in three more, just brutal examples of of of racial injustice on the law enforcement front. I'm referring to Georgia Kentucky in Minnesota in particular. what does that mean if for for governing going forward? Congressman Anthony Brown said to me that one of the things that has to change. You can't have race neutral policy right now..

"With these protests have been by and large, peaceful and nonviolent. Instead what we have been seeing is a number of vigils popping up to honor the life of George Floyd his classmates from decades, high school gathered and released. Released balloons and retold stories of what it was like growing up with him in the third ward, and playing basketball and football with him, and while there certainly is a lot of anger here and a desire to see justice. There's also an interest in remembering who George. Floyd was as a person and celebrating that, and this comes as the governor has signaled that George Floyd's body will return Houston for funeral services chop. Still Thomson? In, Houston there where again they are mourning the death of their hometown. In their hometown resident George Floyd. Thank you and thank you to all joining me now from Minneapolis Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. mistrial, welcome back to meet the press and I'm going to start with the issue of of this outside instigators I. Guess we're trying to understand. Who are the people responsible for this violence? yourself? The Governor Minnesota has indicated that there is some domestic terrorists out there perhaps some white supremacist bill bar the attorney general. Characterize the outside instigators this way. Let me play that. Bite for you and get you to respond. Take a listen. Many places, it appears the violence is planned. Organized and driven. By an archaic and left. Extremist groups, far-left extremist groups, using anti fa like tactics, many of whom travel from outside the state to promote the violence. Now, it's understanding Mr Attorney General that. According to the Justice, Department they got that intelligence from state and local authorities. What if what do you know about WHO's behind this? Here's what I know. There's been a lot of videotape taken by demonstrators of people who are very suspicious. Who are who really did start a breaking windows particularly at the autozone and there've been other. Photographs and cars with. No license plates very suspicious behavior, but the real point is we do need to investigate the truth is nobody really knows I've talked to people who are demonstrating some of them say they think some of those folks are from Minnesota, and they also say some people have come from out of town. What the exact political motivation is is unclear at this point, we need to investigate it, but what I would say, though particularly as it relates to bill and the president. Is that they have not brought a single pattern and practice lawsuit against a major municipality where there's systemic police abuses in in America. They have actually tried to walk back their involvement in key states where they existed under the Obama. Administration, they have not moved forward when it comes to twenty first century policing which the Obama Administration Administration started so I think the federal government does have a role, but it needs to be constructing a better relationship between cities and the police departments that serve them and make an incendiary comments about. WHO's to blame here? As opposed to actually investigating, it isn't helpful. We need their help to be more constructive and less assigning. Blame them on matters that actually we don't know the truth of yet. Do you? Do you WANNA see federal charges brought against these four police officers. And you think that that will happen under this attorney general. Yes I do. And I don't know I hope so I can tell you that are local us. Attorney is a very constructive partner Erica McDonald. Is a Minnesotan She's a serious a prosecutor in law enforcement, person and I. Do Trust her the folk. She worked our hope. Just leave her alone a letter to a job. May Ask you. What's your understanding of of weather? Three other police officers we heard the county attorney and Hennepin County said that he expected charges to be brought. Where are we on that? And what do you expect those charges to to be if they are brought? I, know that we're early in the process. Chuck I mean at this point. There is the to charges of of thirty murder and second degree manslaughter. Complaint could well be. Amended to include. Additional charges or even higher charges, and the other individuals are not out of the woods. The investigation is ongoing. In answer to your question of what charges I, don't know I'd be speculating. It's not my case. This is not my case. But. You know certainly aiding and abetting is a possibility. And there are others as well. So, I think that that is a that is something that is the the county attorney. Mike Freeman is is looking into now. And, we expect to hear something in the fairly recent near future. Big. Picture Mr Attorney General of Americans. There's you know Minnesota. Has the Minnesota Nice Image Minnesota as an image of you know the? And you're. You're an African American man that got elected statewide Minnesota as attorney general as the state's chief law officer. For some people look at this and their surprise. Tell us the story of Minneapolis and Minnesota why this shouldn't surprise people in your mind. Well Minnesota is is kind of a tale of two cities. It really is a beautiful wonderful place. I love it here. Raise off for my kids here. There's so many great things about it so many great people. And yet we have very stark disparities when it comes to African Americans, health disparities in health care health, the spirits in housing health disparities when it comes to employment. And disparities! All around I mean. Give you a quick example about seventy percent of MINNESOTANS own their own homes, but only about twenty seven percent of African Americans do. African Americans are an a fragile economic position in this state, and we need massive investment, and what I say to people look if we can have some of the highest sat scores in the country. If we can have the highest voting participation in the country highest voted to homeownership in the country for whites. We can do it for everyone. We just have to have the will to do it for everybody and I. Think that this sad tragic situation my give us the energy to really really make those Kinda commitments because they are absolutely needed. Keith Ellison the democratic elected attorney general of the state of Minnesota. Appreciate you coming on this morning.

A lot of the protesters said they were out here for Freddie Gray out here for Michael. Brown they've been having these arguments have been having this anger for so long, and they don't feel like it's being addressed. Speaking of those presidential tweets the government response I asked the number of protesters what they thought about the way that the president was handling this the reaction I got the most was. Just brushing him off. This is a president who a lot of these folks believe no longer meaningfully speaks for them or to them. They're having this conversation without him.

"Reopening. But is it safe to go? Plus she says she's on the shortlist. I will talk with Congresswoman. Val demings who says she'd be honored to be Joe Biden's running welcome back to state of the Union. I'm Dan Bash in Florida. You can now visit. Disney springs and Universal Orlando has plans to reopen in two weeks with restrictions. Joining me now should discuss this and more as Florida Congresswoman Val demings who was also on the shortlist of potential running mates for Joe Biden a first. Let's ask about when asked about your district. Some of the smaller theme parks and attractions are opening. Universal Orlando says it plans to open June fifth. I know your district depends heavily on these parks for tourism and jobs. Are you comfortable with these theme park's reopening well good morning? It's great to be with you on this Memorial Day. Weekend as we honor the war dead Let me say this Our primary responsibility is the health safety and welfare of the people that we represent. And that's from the government governor on down and of course My responsibility as a member of Congress. I do believe that the theme parks have been very Strategic methodical very thoughtful in terms of coordinating with public health officials and local officials to make sure that they are doing this right and know that they are religiously practising of the CDC guidelines within those areas. That have opened. I think they're being smarter body but let me say this. I am concerned because we know that this virus is not yet under control and it will not be until we have a vaccine. We don't know win that will be regardless of some of the reports that we hear coming out of the White House but we just need to be vigilant and do what we need to do to keep. People safe covers one. I want to ask about the twenty twenty campaign Vice President Joe Biden apologized on Friday for quote cavalier comment. He made about black voters. I want you to listen to it. We got more questions. You've got more questions. Tell it if you have a problem figuring out whether you're mayor trump and you ain't black it don't have nothing to do with trump and Republican senator Tim Scott called arrogant and insensitive former Republican congresswoman. You love said it was incredibly offensive and racist. What do you think about that comment? Was it out of line you know. I think it's interesting that the president search high and low to fine African American members of the Senate and former member of Congress to speak out on this issue. It'd be nice to hear other other. Republicans male or female Speak OUT ON THIS ISSUE. However look vice. President went on the show. I'm so glad he did. Because these are the conversations that we really need to be in one of the things I said in a statement on Friday. Was that look. We know we have some serious issues that we're dealing with in this country and if we're GONNA be able to address them effectively then we've got a hold. Everybody accountable even those that reduce the fort look vice presidential jobs for it but I really think the goal and the nerve of president trump to try to use this in his campaign he who has since day one done everything within his power of course afforded by his enablers to divide this country particularly along racial lines. Look let's talk about race 'cause we definitely need to. We need we see it and housing we see it. In voting rights we see in in healthcare. We see it and education Mr President. Let's do have a serious conversation about race in America and how about working for all people that you were supposed to represent not just the privileged view but the vice president apologize for it. He engaged in the conversation. I'm glad he did. There will be more as you heard the invitation to come to New York and so we look forward to sitting down together. Working on some of America's toughest issues and race is one of them. Okay before I let you go. I'm sorry we're out of time the You said that you were on the former vice presidents shortlist. Do you WANNA be vice president. What I WANNA do is continue to work hard to serve. The American people look apt chosen. Tough jobs in my lifetime. A social worker working with broken children a law enforcement officer twenty seven years the chief of police and now as a member of Congress trying to do things right to support the American people. I want to do whatever job I can to continue to push this country in the right direction and make sure that America lives up to his promise for future generations. Thank you congresswoman.

"The out is the governor of New Jersey Democrat. Phil Murphy Governor. Thank you so much for joining me. It is Memorial Day weekend Many people mark this as the unofficial start of the summer you did open beaches in your state with restrictions like capacity limits social distancing and In some counties no swimming at all our people following your guidelines. Then it's good to be back with you. It's too early to tell and I think for the most part New Jersey has done an extraordinary job following our guidelines. I say it's too early to tell not only just because it's Sunday and we're in the middle of the weekend but the weather has not cooperated. It was miserable yesterday. It's cold today. I'm heading down the shore myself right after I finish up with you. I'll see it with my own eyes but for the most part folks have been extraordinary. It doing the right thing in the state now for going on two and a half plus months and I fully expect that will continue on the beaches even when when Mother Nature begins to cooperate with good weather? Giving her many parents can't even think about returning to work without wondering where they're going to send their kids. You haven't set a date yet for reopening daycare centers or camps. What should parents do well? You're absolutely right daycare. Irs is at or near the top of our list. We understand we can't open up the our economy as we have begun to do already continuing to do and not give working parents an outlet an an opportunity to have their kids properly looked after right. Now it's limited only to essential frontline health care first responders. We have to open that up. My guess is that sooner than later. You know the big nuts crack. We're going to be daycare not just camps of it back to school in August and September and mass transit. Those are not easy ones to get stood up again in a way that remotely looks like it's an it's an old normal. That's a work in progress on all the above the CDC published reopening guidance for places of worship that includes providing hand sanitizer encouraging the use of masks cleaning their facilities daily. I to listen to what the president said about this on Friday. Some governors deemed liquor stores and abortion clinics is essential but if left out churches and other houses of worship. It's now right. I call upon governors to allow our churches and places of worship to open right now. If they don't do it I will override. The governor's yesterday your fellow democratic governor of Minnesota Tim Walls announced that he will allow places of worship to open and accommodate up to two hundred and fifty people. Are you gonNA follow his lead? A listen I'm not read into the decisions in terms of the facts of Minnesota might my jobs in New Jersey. I actually spoke to the president directly late in the day on Friday. We'll get there on on houses of worship. We actually have opened up our outdoor limits. Now to twenty five people out of doors will get to the indoor activity sooner than later and that includes probably at the top of the list worshiping. We want to do that. I personally want to do that. But we've got to do it right at the right pace. I would guess if we continue to see the progress that we've made a New Jersey notwithstanding extraordinary toll over eleven thousand blessed souls lost for the past several weeks weeks. We've seen a lot of good progress in the data and I would hope would get two houses of worship sooner the later. But we want to make sure we do it right responsibly. In that we don't kill anybody by doing too fast another Democratic Governor Illinois Jay Pritzker. He has said that groups of fifty people even in places of worship can't gather until there is a vaccine treatment or no cases and as you know experts say a vaccine is at least a year away so we'll in your state groups of fifty people including churches be able to gather indoors within the next year. I would hope so I would hope so again. I'm not read into the Illinois data facts on one hundred percent. My life is focused on the reality. Here we're the devastated. America are death. Toll is second only to New York. We still have in terms of per capita reality on New Hospitalizations. Total hospitalizations new fatalities. Were still number one or two in the nation so I would. I would hope we would get there against sooner than later indoors. No ventilation sedentary close proximity. Those are bad factors. So the question is what? Can you do about ventilation? What can you do about distancing as you rightfully out hyper pleading etcetera face coverings? I don't think we give enough credit to the impact that face covering can have again. I think we'll get there but I can't tell you one let's talk about your state of New Jersey. There's new research from Columbia University that says if New Jersey had put social distancing policies in place on March eighth it estimates five thousand five hundred lives could have been saved which would cut your states death toll and about half. I want you to look at the timeline of the actions in your state that You Talk. You obviously know this. But for our viewers on March ninth. You declared a state of emergency But it was two weeks later. March twenty first that you shutdown your state. The governor of Rhode Island has said that if if the governor would have known then what they know now that Rhode Island would have been shut down sooner. How do you feel about your actions in New Jersey? I think Dennis you'll look at what we did. There are very few states. That did it faster or more comprehensively than we did. And that's just a fact having said that if do I wish I knew then what I know. Now in that we realized that it wasn't just the first case on March fourth but in New York City and environs including in the counties that community in New York there were perhaps thousands of registered positive cases. If we had known that then obviously we would have. We would have accelerated even further but again. I don't think any state moved as fast or very few. Did at least or as comprehensively as we did again. I don't know anybody anybody any leader. Who would not say now if I knew then what I know now I would have done. Xyz Company among that that list. Before I let you go. I want to ask about your state's finances. According to Your State Treasurer New Jersey is estimated to have a revenue loss of ten billion dollars. You are calling on the federal government to provide states with more funding for first responders and healthcare workers. I'm not sure if you heard the president's economic adviser Kevin Hassett just before you he says it's very much. Tvd Any sounded Kind of doubtful. That states like yours need the kind of money that Democrats are asking for here in Washington We're also about to talk to Senator Rick. Scott a Florida. He opposes giving federal funding to states additional funding. What's going to happen in New Jersey if you can't get more federal dollars? I haven't taken my cues ever from Rick Scott. I won't now but I thought Kevin was reasonable but on this one I have to say I'm GONNA. I'm going to say time out. This is not abstract. We don't need to do a data crunch doing analysis. We announced a budget on Friday for the next four months and we had to or defer over five billion dollars of expenditures and this includes potentially laying-off educators firefighters police. Ems healthcare workers. This is not abstract. This is real. It's not a blue state issue. It's an American issue. It's not a legacy. You guys did manage yourselves in the past better. That has nothing to do with this. This is about keeping those front those those very frontline workers in their jobs do the heroic work. They're doing at our hour of need in the biggest health care crisis in the history of our country the biggest economic crisis in the history of our country. The last thing we need to do is to lay any of those folks off and increase the unemployment rate under serve our residents. So we need it. It's not just New Jersey. It's not just blue states. It's American states up and down the country Governor Phil Murphy of New Jersey. Thank you so much for joining me. This morning I appreciate it. Sir and coming up next to the divided America as the.

An insight into Kamala Harris, a potential VP for Biden

"I am Jonathan Kaye. Part AND WELCOME TO CAPE UP. Long before people started swooning over Congressman. Val demings of Florida as a possible vice president. Joe Biden folks. We're talking about senator. Kamla Harris California back in January twenty nineteen few weeks before Harris announced her own since disbanded presidential campaign. I sat with her in front of a live audience at George Washington University for the kickoff tour. For her the truth we hold because Harris's book is a memoir. Our conversation was heavy on stories about parents upbringing and her career. There's no better way to get to know this possible vice president than listening right now. Senator Harris thank you very much for for being here for choosing Washington to be the kickoff of your book tour and or actually to be correct books tour and as we see the truths we hold an American journey and then also superheroes are everywhere. I'm going to focus on the truths we hold k. And I'm going to focus on something that happens before even page one and I want to clear it up. Okay for anyone who might have done this or still doing this. Despite hearing it said correctly the first time pronounce your name Carmela so just think of like the punctuation Mark Comma and that Adalah and there you got and so then what does communism mean then. So it's a very traditional classic Indian name and it derives from Sanskrit and it's it means the lotus flower and so it's very prevalent and a lot of Asian cultures and the idea the symbolism. Is that the Lotus flowers sits on water but it never really gets wet. The water beats off of it and so the idea being that one can be in the midst of chaos or be in the midst of something happening and and be there and should be there and it doesn't necessarily need to penetrate you but one should be there and equally important Its roots are in the mud meaning. It is grounded and and one must always know where they come from and can still be this thing now. I need you to pronounce another name for me for the life of me. I just I couldn't do it. And that is the name of your mother Shammala. So the why is silent Shama Sharmila what was really Shamlan? Go Gopala tell us about your mom. Caller Mommy Mommy. We always called her. Mommy I am not embarrassed to say she is mommy and She is in many ways. The reason I wrote the book my sister my is here My Mother's one of her best friends from college is here. Lenore POMERANZ I write about in the book and my mother was a force of nature. A drill force of nature. She is someone who all five feet of her. If you met her after you walked away you would have thought she was seven Tom. My mother was a truth teller. She spoke the truth. She was probably the smartest toughest and most loving person I've ever known. She raised her daughters with a belief that we could do and be anything. She taught us that. Don't let people tell you who you are and you tell them who you are. She was a scientist. Breast cancer researcher should goals in her life to end breast cancer and raise her two daughters and she would take us to the lab with her at go after school on the weekends and being around scientists one of the things that I realize now early in my life I learned was that one should see what can be unburdened by what has been because that is science is about. It's the pursuit of those things that will improve the condition of life. That will solve problems. That will make things better. And that's why I'm naturally attracted to also anything that is about innovation understanding that innovation. We do it not because we're bored with things the way they've been but because we should always be in pursuit of being more efficient more effective more relevant and and that's what she is and was your father. Donald Harris also an immigrant born born in Jamaica. Yeah an economics professor at Stanford. And let's David. Mind comes from some BRAINIAC parents. Your mom got her. He H D. The year you were born does put that out there so now your dad comes to the United States from Jamaica. Yeah my father was equally brilliant. And is he was a national scholar and Jamaica. He earned his way and up in out and came to the United States into Berkeley to study economics and My parents met when they were active in the civil rights movement. And it's an interesting story because as you know my mother graduated college when she was nineteen and did and so she so she said to my grandfather who was one of the freedom fighters in India for India's independence and my mother was the eldest of four children. She was the oldest at at a girl obviously and she said to my grandparents. She wanted to study science and she wanted to go to what was considered to be one of the best schools and that was UC Berkeley and my grandparents looked at her and said okay. We will put you on a plane and you can go to a place. You've never been at nineteen years old. This was in nineteen fifty nine. So this young this girl. This young woman got on a plane encouraged by her parents to go and pursue her dream now. The back story is also that it was fully expected she would get that degree and go back and have a good arranged marriage but of course my mother having been raised and being who she was just naturally she when she got to Berkeley was immediately attracted to the civil rights movement. Why do you defend? That's where she met. My father was and but I want to say she met my father and decided to have a love marriage and a marriage based on love which I believe is the ultimate act of optimism. The the question that I interrupted. You're you're Satan with. Why do you think she was so attracted to the civil rights movement she was raised growing up? Would go back to India like every other year and And so I know the family from that that that raised her because they helped raise us and it was always about fighting for independence was about finding justice. It was about fighting to make sure that all people had a say in their future in their government an equal say and that was that was in her blood and of course that's what the civil rights movement was about and the free speech movement and and there are some funny stories. I was just sharing with something backstage. You know so I witness I right about in the book you know from my strollers. I view and there's a a funny family story about how some mothers marching with the extended family. I talk about like aunt Mary and Uncle Freddie and the book and she would tell the story about. How DO THEY MARTIN? And this is back when strollers didn't really have armrest seatbelts. Martin Away and you know shouting and and all of that and then I think Mongol Freddie a look down in the stroller which was empty followed up. My mother tells funny story like one day. She was fussing and and you know so much cuter when she would tell the story but she'd say so then she would look down at me and come on. What do you want? What do you want and I look back up in a said fleet on so glad that story. I wanted to hear you safe. We how I wanted to talk about your your father economics professor Stanford they meet atmospherically. Had you and my And you love going to the park and your mom would correct me. If I'm wrong would put limits on you in terms of how far you go. Whatever and your dad would say to you. Run RUN COM run. That's right he would say. Do not be afraid. Let her go let her go. Let her run. You run as fast as you. Can you run as far as you want and I believe that his whole purpose was to say. Do not be afraid and be

Florida Rep. Val Demings on Her Biden Endorsement

"Over the last two years congresswoman. Val demings of Florida has had a front row seat to history. She serves on the House. Intelligence Committee the House Judiciary Committee and she was one of the seven house. Impeachment managers who argued for the conviction of President Trump. And now demings name is being bandied about as a possible vice presidential nominee is she. I totally forgot to ask her about her Harley but I did ask her about trump Florida her support of Joe Biden and yes whether she wanted to be considered for vice president here at all right now congresswoman bowel demings. Thank you very much. For being on the PODCAST. It's great to be with you. So let's just jump right on in you endorsed. Vice President Biden. You are from Florida can he carry Florida In November can a Democrat. Win Florida in November. I have no doubt that a Democrat can win Florida the numbers and Florida's support that But what we're facing assist a matter of turnout and so our job is to make sure that we turn Democratic voters out when we looked at Super Tuesday I think if we watched the voters and listen to the voters the voters are deciding and I thank on Super Tuesday. They were strong. They were powerful. I think they sent a clear message about who they believe can lead our country and move a democratic agenda forward. We saw every demographic turn out and as you know Florida's a very diverse state And I think if what has happened what happened on. Super Tuesday is any indication of what will happen to in Florida's primary. I think that we're going to be in really good shape. Now I'd sort of bounce ahead I did mention you. Endorse Vice President Biden. But there's still contest right now. There's a bird contest you know what what I just feel so hopeful about. We know what we have experienced the last three years almost four now and there is no way. American families can go through another four years of what we've seen And so you know when I look at the democratic feeling as you all know several of my colleagues were in that race what I knew and we heard it quite a bit but I believed it to be true is that anyone on the democratic side would be better than what we have and now we're basically down to two individuals who. I believe if you look at what they believe in what they fought for. Then certainly Will be in better shape. I just happen to believe that one of them Vice President Biden really is the want to carry the agenda forward and really Unify our country. Which is so desperately needed right now. How damaging was it or is it to Senator Sanders. The comments that came out from the the old video of him praising Fidel Castro and then even his defense of his comments about Fidel Castro again from a Florida Lens was that damaging to his effort. Well again you've listened to the people and I think the people and those who represent them spoke loudly and clearly and I won't certainly will not guess about what Senator Sanders Sarah what he meant to say but what I do know. Is that several people who live in our very diverse state. Were upset by those comments. And so you know we're in the middle of a race. We're going to let the let full radiance to But I think you know when you look at Vice President Biden. He has been in the trenches fighting for issues that we care about for a long time fighting for issues that before it was popular quite frankly to fight for them like marriage. Equality issues like climate control. Certainly he's been a unifier along the way and I love what Whip Clyburn said I think most of all he said we know Joe but more important Joe knows us and that's because he's been there fighting for those issues and building those relationships longtime he didn't wait until he decided to run for the most powerful position In the country and so. I think like I said I just. I go back to watch the voters I know. There's a lot of talk about the establishment. I quite frankly find that I am not quite sure what that means when voters turn out in. Great numbers We certainly know how the African American turnout was led by South Carolina I don't know what the establishment means but I certainly know what people go to the polls mean and we saw

Fifty one forty nine on a near Party line vote. Republican Susan Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney of UTAH. voted along with the Democrats witnesses. But that was not enough despite the Democrats singular focus on hearing you testimony. The Republican majority brush. Pass those demands to make this the first impeachment trial without witnesses even new revelations from former National Security Adviser John Bolton did not not swayed.

"The house manager demings. This is Sonny We've heard some rumblings that some Democratic senators are considering in a deal to subpoena either Joe Biden or his son Hunter Biden to testify in exchange for testimony from John Bolton. Is this something that is is really on the table and if so is that a good idea let me just say this. I know that leadership were worked through proposing a list before the entire body of recommended witnesses. But look we're here to make sure. The American people have a fair trial as it pertains needs to the impeachment of president. Donald John Trump. And we're very interested in hearing from material witnesses witnesses who have direct knowledge about Out The conversation that president trump had what presidents Alinsky when the president tried to Ukraine into interfere in our election election. We know for example. That Ambassador Bolton has some direct knowledge about that because he talked about and I quote the drug deal that he didn't WanNa be a part mart the drug deal that was being cooked up and immediately told Dr he'll to go and tell the. NFC Matt Lawyers We. We all know that Hunter Biden has absolutely no direct evidence or information about what took place on that phone call call. We know that Hunter Biden has absolutely no direct information about this scheme. This Ukrainian scheme that the president and those around him have been engaged in for months. I believe that the president is team and the President of course is just trying to turn this very serious trial well into a circus. We're going to do everything we can to not allow them to do that. But let me say witnesses net or call we want to make sure that we see witnesses because every drought does and documents because every trial does and so the leadership work that out. But we're going to stay eight focus and do what we need to do congresswoman. It's Megan Most Americans won't or can't watch the entire trial it's extremely along. People have jobs and lives and families and I think for many people on the right the outcome just seems like a foregone conclusion you had senators literally falling asleep yesterday. Okay on the Senate floor footage. That I thought was a little disrespectful. How do you intend to get the average American to care about this when senators are falling asleep? And it's lasting lasting so long we'll megan let me just say this. It was a long day. We started shortly after one o'clock in the afternoon as you. Well Well No. It went to after two o'clock in the morning so I'm not GonNa talk about the senators who didn't quite hang there for every second. They were in their seats and look. I'm glad they all showed up. We had everyone there. Our Job Bob is to communicate to the American people and quite frankly the Senate's job too was that they're going to be fair judges and that they want to hear from Witnesses and documents and if they somehow continue to fight that their job is to demonstrate to the Amar have the American people join us and questioning. What is the president? And what are the Republican senators. So afraid of what testimony other so afraid of the American people here at documents that they're so afraid of seeing our job is to communicate that the president clearly abuse the office office. He abused the trust of the American people. He betrayed his old and then he obstructed everything that Congress tried I to do to investigate the president of the United States. His the president used his officer tried to urge the foreign power into to changing. We'll maybe guys sacred rights and they're the most sacred rights that we that we have is the ability to vote and he's trying to cheat yet again. Well get a give it some fans you know how to do in terms get some fans and fans. 'cause you know a spot in those chambers those places so you know the air conditioning is not really right. It's not or it's too warm. Yeah gives them fans and as mega said some red bull and we'll be wide..

Senate Impeachment Trial of Trump Begins

"We're going to spend a few minutes reviewing the very long day that has just transpired many hours ago yesterday in fact the Senate the surgeon at arms of the Senate and noticed the beginning of this impeachment trial here you hear you hear me all persons are commanded to keep silent on pain of imprisonment well the son of United States is sitting for the trial of the articles of impeachment exhibited by the house of representatives against Donald John trump president of the United States well since then Senate minority minority leader Chuck Schumer has introduced a series of amendments eleven of them senators have voted on each of them one by one and rejected them one by one mostly along party lines the amendments all have aim to allow subpoenas for documents and witnesses evidence that Democrats believe is relevant to the president's withholding of aid to Ukraine that withholding of aid is central to the impeachment charge of abuse of power here's representative Val Deming's Democrat of Florida one of the house impeachment manager she speaking here on the efforts of the White House and the president himself to block evidence as a career in law enforcement officer I have never seen anyone takes that extreme steps to hide evidence allegedly proving his innocence all right that is one view here's another this is the president's attorney Jay Sekulow arguing that that Ukraine aid and the phone call between president trump and Ukraine's president the one where critics say aid was threatened J. secular saying those are red herrings why are we here only here because of a phone call are we here before this great body because since the president was sworn into office there was a desire to see him removed all right with me now as they have been for many hours and pure congressional correspondent Susan Davis and and pure political reporter Tim mac and I want to give you both the chance to offer a final thought or if to hear I would I would love to to do is just look at the substance of what unfolded today because today was a lot of procedure a lot of figuring out the rules but we heard the thrust of what the central arguments are going to be and we heard Democrats introducing evidence in the former videos in the form of witness testimony we heard them introduce video of the president himself saying things that are now and convenient to his defense team from his defense team to Davis we didn't see videos wouldn't see slides a very different approach no because the White House and one of the negative effects of never participating in the process is none of the evidence at hand really backs up any of their arguments there isn't much of the testimony that happened before the house that vindicates the White House there's some that is not as bad as other testimony certainly people testified that they did not believe the president did anything wrong or they didn't hear any first hand accounts of anything improper but the overwhelming evidence that the house investigation put forward makes it look as if the president made decisions to withhold military aid to pressure Ukraine to investigate the Biden family at that at a time when he was and still is a leading contender for the democratic nomination in the twenty twenty presidential election and I think what you see housing Democrats using that video evidence and they've made clear that this is a strategy they're going to use in this trial is they see some of their best arguments are being made by the president himself it's not just testimony that happened before the house committees it's also the things the president has said publicly time and time again that they played today and will continue to use over the course of the coming days to mac let me let you weigh and respond to that what did you hear in terms of the thrust of where the argument from each of these legal teams is going to take us in these next days well the Republican argument has remained a like she said very similar threw out which is the president did not commit any misconduct that they're not generally engaging with the fact questions they're simply saying there was no quid pro quo that Ukraine wasn't aware of this holder this pas in aid that's central to this empire impeachment process and that there is that even if the president did in fact asked for an investigation or a was behind this holding it in aid neither of those things were unethical or improper the political argument at the White House is making which I think is where most Senate Republicans are going to embrace and try to land is that while these things happen the White House is saying the president didn't do anything wrong a lot of senators don't agree with that assessment but the political argument that the White House is making is that there's an election coming up and that this isn't a job for the Congress to decide that it's up to the country to decide the fate of the president that is a comfortable place for most senators to land even if they give them a place to say I don't think this conduct was the greatest I would've done if I was the president but I'm not going to get in front of my constituents in my voters nine or ten months out of an election at timeline the pets of Bologna the White House counsel mentioned time and time again and that is the safest and easiest political space for anyone conflicted about how to vote on this and it's a very small orbit of senators that is the clearest safest path to land without feeling like you had to take two tough for her right and and that was also something that the president's lawyers touched on that that that the that the house impeachment managers in the house articles don't accuse the president of a specific criminal offense and that could leave it out if Republicans certain Republican senators are interested in taking it to say that the president may have committed some sort of misconduct may have done something wrong but it doesn't rise to the level of an impeachable offense just briefly what comes next we will what we are heard there for Mitch McConnell they will be back will all be back and do it all again starting at one o'clock eastern tomorrow because believe it or not we still have not heard the actual formal opening arguments here this was all the freeway to that is that research that's right that tomorrow begins official opening arguments and the and the White House and congressional teams have the chance to make additional motions of their own this was senators putting forward motions one of the things are watching for is does the White House try to put forward a motion to dismiss at the very front end of all of this proceedings justice put

"Let's get to impeachment we finally have some updates Fauria and I didn't leave the show with this today well number one because I want to make fun of the Democrats during the debate last night and all the craziness that went on there and then we had local issues because the legislative session is officially under way there a lot of issues that are being debated in Tallahassee that will actually impact your lives here in the state of Florida so we wanted to get some of those and of course during the course of the Senate trial we're gonna spend plenty of time on all of this but I do want to update you on where things stand today speaker Pelosi signed a house resolution to transmit the two articles of impeachment against president trump over to the Senate that followed the house approving resolution today appointing house managers for the impeachment trial representative Collin Peterson Democrat from Minnesota was the only Democrat to vote against the resolution the vote triggered the start of the Senate trial which has been delayed for nearly a month after the house approved two articles of impeachment against president trump one for abuse of power in the other for obstruction of Congress polo C. named seven house managers house intelligence chairman Adam Schiff house judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler representative Val Deming's from here in Florida Democrat from the Orlando area representative came Jeffries representative Zoe Lofgren representative Jason crow and representative Sylvia Garcia I know hello see couldn't do this she had to include chef and Nadler among the house managers but it would have been much better if she didn't because they're just viewed in such a partisan light and you've got talented people bound Deming's she's gonna be good she's the former police chief of Orlando and she uses out during the hearing as well she did so you've got talented people that you could have handled this you don't need shift or Nadler because nobody's really gonna pay much attention to what they say there's just a view bait in about those two I can see where the mines take a step back from being doing the actual trial and maybe there is yeah behind the scenes manager that's how it should be I don't know you think shift is gonna take a step back from the cameras are now learn mom the with all the incoming that chef and never took from the president maybe plus he said like and I'll let you go over there behind a smart move I don't know if that's what's going to happen but still Lofgren she's been this is our third impeachment trial yeah you were mentioning this earlier she was a staffer during the Nixon Nixon and the run up to the Nixon impeachment was actually in peace okay and then she was in Congress on the house side when Clinton was impeached now she's one of the truck the the managers of the impeachment I'm sorry if you've been around for three if you were a staffer during Nixon you really still need to be in Washington DC well I think it goes to the depth chart the dancing clothes he was well yeah yes yes yes I'm looking at a trial of it you know fantasies over here yeah that's how I'm viewing rice really she was there for Nixon to still there but now that that makes total sense to have somebody like that we I kinda knowledge and experience on your house manager staff list in terms of what's next there's gonna be a few days a housekeeping and procedural work Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is expected to hold the substantive part of the trial opening arguments in the queue in a period it's gonna hold that until Tuesday in order to give house managers and trump's defense team a couple of days to prepare on Tuesday the Senate is expected to vote on an organizing resolution the will lay out the terms for the trial it seems like they're going to model it very closely to what happened in the Clinton impeachment they always need a live witness issue yes which if they get the for Republicans across over right right then we'll see what happens then and also the the new reporting today is and how will the Democrats agree to a **** for tat as far as witnesses of they get right hold on yeah well they allow hunter Biden especially if they think under by it has nothing to hide you know we'll see how that plays out and let me get to that aspect several key Senate Republicans are insisting there be specific language in shoring of votes on whether to call witnesses and request documents not that witnesses and documents are allowed but just that there's a vote right on it aides to some vulnerable senators and moderate states including senator Susan Collins have said this language is crucial we know Susan Collins probably once witnesses and it sounds like Mitt Romney once that as well I've heard Lamar Alexander Makowski is always one to watch the numbers are close a democratic leadership aide told Axios that they will force votes on subpoenaing key witnesses such as trump's former national security adviser John Bolton acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney Mulvaney senior adviser Robert Blair and top White House budget official Michael Duffy as well as relevant documents at the very least that will for some vulnerable Senate Republicans to cast tough votes lot of politics being played on both sides as to be expected some important numbers to remember Republicans would need fifty one votes to dismiss the case out right that's not gonna happen there's no way you're gonna have vulnerable Republicans like a Susan Collins vote to dismiss the case will not happen Democrats would need fifty one votes to call witnesses that's possible Republicans currently hold a fifty three forty seven majority in the Senate so Democrats would need for Republicans come over to their side to make the numbers work I think they think they have the votes I think they probably have the votes to at the very least John Paul at the very least I think you're gonna want to he he you're gonna have some Republicans are gonna want to hear from the former national security adviser one important note about today's resolution it gives managers authority to submit additional evidence that the Senate that's key because last night impeachment investigators at the house Judiciary Committee new evidence obtained from left partis Giuliani associate indicted by the Southern District of New York

C. in a little bit and he basically says everything he did some of which was not good he did at the direction of the president Rudy Giuliani that's what he's gonna say tonight's in there there's a lot to one pack based on some of what we've learned about partners over the past couple of days so they're certainly going to be a back and forth and debate over what needs to be explored during the course of the Senate trial on the controversial decision by pelo C. to hold the impeachment articles for three weeks this is what she said on ABC's this week this past Sunday she said the tactic has produced a very positive results she said quote we feel that is produced a very positive result in terms of additional emails an unredacted information that's come forward Bolton has said he will testify if subpoenaed by the Senate I don't think the delay matters all that much in the big scheme of things you had much McConnell who held his ground he was not gonna be bullied by Nancy Pelosi should just didn't have the leverage some new information did come out including reselling the past couple of days although look this stuff it's not going to change the outcome of the trial the only thing that can really make this difficult for Republicans would be of John Bolton testified and have really really damaging information it also have John Bolton testify and he puts forth information favorable to the president and then it's a no brainer we don't know how that's going to go I think Bolton's announcement that he was willing to testify was the most important development that took place during the three weeks the pelo C. held the articles of impeachment what I go back to is the house were rushing through the impeachment process that was a mistake because now they have to push the Senate to do what they should have done I thought they went too fast if this was such a serious matter then you take your time and you do a thorough complete process instead they rushed through the articles of impeachment and then they kind of had to wait to see if more information will come out and then they learn one of the people they should of try to issue a subpoena for John Bolton he was maybe interested now in talking to the Senate it's it's just a mess and plus on top of this all it puts Senate Democrats running for president Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders in closure but some of the top spot she delayed this whole thing policy for three weeks and now at a crucial time for them right before the Iowa caucuses they're gonna be caught up in the Senate trial that's really at the end of the day that's where the biggest impact is the biggest impact is on the democratic primary and how it's gonna fact Iowa if I were those Senate Democrats I would not be thrilled with Nancy Pelosi at the moment your thoughts on the whole I hate you up to this point I have to disagree one thing is this notion that the investigation
