Matt Gaetz: Why Is He Being Investigated?
"Lots talk right now about florida. Representative matt gaetz. Why what is going on with matt. Gaetz matt gaetz seems to be in a lot of legal trouble is what's going on tonight.

Investigators looking into the alleged relationship from two years ago whether gates possibly violated sex trafficking laws when he allegedly paid for travel and other expenses for the team all things. The republican strongly denies it as a horrible allegation and it is a lie. He's being investigated for payments. He may have allegedly made to women in exchange for sex in one case a woman who was under each seventeen years old in one sense. This is a pretty classic political sex scandal but the real reason it seems to have struck such a chord is that gates was one of the most bold outspoken defenders of former president donald trump who was of course plagued by scandal throughout his term in office gates was always there to say. Oh president trump was just being persecuted by the deep state. When robert muller leaves capitol hill. I think the american people will see that there was no collusion and there was oceans of bias and it turns out that the justice department has some questions for representative gates as well before we get into this sordid saga. We should just flag. That matt gaetz has not been charged with anything by anyone relating to the sex scandal correct. That's correct so. This is all stemming from a report initially in the new york times that gates was under investigation for perhaps having sex with a seventeen year old and for the payments to

Us officials said yesterday disclosure of the plan came on the same day that the us intelligence community released a gloomy outlook for afghanistan. Forecasting low chances of a peace deal this year and warning that its government would struggle to hold the taliban insurgency at bay if the us led coalition withdraws support. Biden's decision. would miss say may first deadline for withdrawal agreed to with the taliban by his predecessor. Donald trump the insurgents had threatened to resume hostilities against foreign troops. If that deadline was missed but biden would still be setting near-term withdrawal date potentially allaying taliban concerns a senior biden. Administration officials said. The pull outs would begin before may first and could be complete well. Before the september eleven deadline significantly it would not be subject to further conditions including security all human rights. Us secretary of state anthony blinken and s. defense secretary.

Republicans Work to Rebrand GOP as Party of Working Class
"Donald trump brought more working class voters into the republican party than any other president since ronald reagan now. Republicans are trying to figure out how to keep them. The working class vote will be crucial in next year's midterms. Here's npr congressional correspondent. Susan davis in the last decade. The biggest growth in the republican coalition has been white voters without a college degree along with some growth with similarly educated black and hispanic voters. that's why republicans. Like indiana congressman. Jim banks believe the only winning path forward for the gop is to fully reimagined itself as the party of the working class and if republicans want to be successful as a party when the majority in twenty twenty two win back the white house and twenty twenty four. I think we have to learn lessons that donald trump taught us now to appeal to these voters. Banks is the chairman of the republican study committee but conservative faction in the house. long rooted. in small government low taxes and social conservatism. He recently sent a six page memo to house. Minority leader kevin mccarthy making the case that republicans need to refocus their agenda. Almost entirely on working class appeals for banks. This means tougher immigration laws cracking down on china big tech and perhaps most provocatively for republicans corporate america for too long the republican party said into the narratives that republican party was party of business or the party of wall street. Republicans are increasingly comfortable attacking corporations these days. That's a lot easier for them. After wall street donors gave more to joe biden. Major companies halted political donations to republicans who objected to electoral college results on january six and is companies take more liberal positions on controversial issues like georgia's new voting law senate minority leader mitch. Mcconnell last week issued a rare verbal rebuke of companies that oppose the law. Warning if you will to corporate america's to stay out of politics. It's not what you're designed for.

"vice president" Discussed on The Breakfast Club
"And donald trump is a politician. Honest. Abe is what she called him. You know what? I like a like what she drove home the point about the taxes, right? Because all we hear is the seven hundred and fifty dollar taxes for most people they like wow, I had an opportunity to only. Pay Seven hundred and fifty I would only pay. But then when she starts breaking down, no, he has debt. We don't know who he owed money to. So we don't know that the decisions that he's making his based off of his own decision offer those debts are that, but I like the Briana Taylor thing i. think she went off of that too fast. Well she started with justice was not done. Thank. You have to acknowledge that we're not really that's the price you said not really I didn't like that not really the the yes and no well it it's a lot easier. I'll just tell you guys even on the Breakfast Club last time I say full one, shotgun Shell, those four, ten shotgun shell no in a net, eight me up but the damage that is going to do if you come to my house is GonNa. Be This. What I will, I will say that is just one of those things that that you say and I've talked to a million times we know justices not done That's why we WANNA look at that process from top to bottom that should have. Ever happened, and so That's one of the reasons why she did not. She stood up for and and vice president pence mention it. That's why she blocked Tim Scott Bill in the US Senate because it was week I was worth the paper that it was written on and it would not have stopped any of these things but if We enact criminal justice reform package, and policing reform package. We would stop these things. every Publicans do push their supreme court nominee through it'd be like what six to write something like why not explain why packing this the courts would be a good thing. Then if that happens bullet argument for packing, the court is to make sure that the court is mind with with more line with America in that, you have just as many conservative judges as you have more liberal judges so that you have a fair court and you get balanced results the other thing I think she did very adequately especially in this time, we're talking about equity and we're talking about blackness and fairness. Out of Fifty Circuit Court judges that they have appointed, not one black. Look and look just because you have my color doesn't mean you have Marquan negative you know they didn't even find one that's not my kind I mean they just made no effort and I think that those. Are What speaks clears about how they value black life, black input, black intelligence, all of those things. If you can't find one out of fifty to put on a circuit court, Bitch necessarily talking to cedric he's the coach here for the Biden campaign. Now, did you send their fly in last night with fly from you that that was certainly not a southern fly I mean look. That that was a that was a Utah Fly you can ask Charlemagne South Carolina Louisiana Mississippi Georgia flies a little bit bigger than that but I'll tell you one thing that must be some Moose in the head and not feel it I mean that's the. You know what's interesting about that fly came in when he was talking all that book about no racial by law enforcement like that was God to me. It the irony there was just so clear me but you know what was on is to sit down with your family and watch. And hear guys say is no racial bias in this country yet and I'm just glancing over at my son. Thank in. Yeah. How'd you like your son to get pulled over at night and have ten and windows on his car and see if that police officers gun is not drawn before he can reach in the glove compartment to get his I D C doesn't have to have those conversations. He's not live those life experiences. And just sit there and so easily gloss over the fact that we have systematic racism that black men whether it's Charlemagne. Oh myself for you. Dj Mvp. If we stopped at night, the police officers are not gonNA RECOGNIZE US did not African American and we're going to get that same treatment that everybody else gets which is aggression and we will never get the benefit at a doubt that we're upstanding citizens is the same reason why? People quite stay I when I'm walking down the street in t shirt same reason why they'll get on the other side of the street same reason why they may or may not get an elevator will not make eye contact will not say good morning good evening all of those things. So for him that just into that you know there's a your blood starts to borrow, but then you realize look, let's just vote lessees beat him unless you send them on their way. How do black men make room for black women like Senator Harris to show up their full sells like they should be able to express themselves without being labeled as angry look I. Mean, you know it it it is a challenge but I think the first part is the fact that you and I both recognize. It means that we're making a step towards fixing that and I think that you know being assertive being successful all of those things look that's what we want for I. Black Women I mean the the real key is making sure that we can have that fly black men, and so that's why we have so many plans about economic empowerment in black wealth and stop assuming that black men don't want to be good fall black men don't want to educate their kids bragman not concerned about their communities, and so that's why. You know we start with education and wealth in entrepreneurship for black men but we still go back to criminal justice reform because we know it has to be. Fixed even though president. Obama and vice? President Biden. Released thirty eight thousand people from prison during their presidency even though they reduced the crack to cocaine disparity, we still have a lot lot a lot of work to do and that criminal justice arena and police reform arena especially dealing with the collateral consequences the. Incarceration I mean you know I could talk about I could talk about that all day and we still would not do it justice how much work has to be done. God who well, we appreciate you for joining us this morning Cedric Richmond to co-chair for the abiding campaign we appreciate your. Goals got to have somebody on every week to from the campaign leading up only like what twenty seven days away and We're about twenty six days away. Okay and very important note Hillary came on twice during her campaign and she came on the week of the election the to tell the vice president that okay. I I will tell them both and then one day maybe we'll come back and have a we could do a long segment on criminal justice reform, Prime Bill, all of those things that may or may not still be hanging out this.

"That really came through tonight to her advantage and let's let's not underestimate. The fact that Kamala Harris has not had a lot of one on one debate experience. I mean first of challenging one on one debate experience. Last time. Exactly the her last opponent Loretta Sanchez in the US at the two thousand sixteen ended her closing remarks by DABBING. One of the. Funniest things mostly because of Harris's expression, she's just trying to like she was like, Oh, my God. It just what the hell are you doing expression on her face and then she tried to stifle laugh. Let's a big man. Let's is all about politics. Let's let's look at the politics of this. There are precious few undecided voters at this point. Anywhere from you know four or five to maybe ten percent of the of the voters at the be in the high side. Did this. To tonight. The dial anyway little last week's debate did Joe Biden. Picked up a couple of points maybe three points after. That horrific. Whatever that was last week. Tonight move the dial anyway I, don't think it does and I don't think vice presidential debates typically do unless it's a disaster I think that the Comelec came across as somebody you can see this person can be vice president seems spark enough to do the do the job but at this point for Biden Harris, it's not a question of winning debates. It's a question of not losing. And I think that she certainly succeeded in not losing tonight we need to include the star of the evening though. Did a great job. But no doubt that the star of the evening was the fly heather. Tell us about the fall. I thought it was the only one. I was like what is that and I was texting my friends after we shifted from how Mike Pence kept interrupting everybody is that a fly on his head and then I looked at twitter and everyone was talking about the flight and it stayed on there a really long time. I'm wondering if he had hairspray and the flight got stuck or something. I. Think he's got stuck in the product and. Yeah. It was definitely the most interesting thing about the to face and Joe. Biden's already selling fly swatters on his. Campaign say truth their flies or something like that. Oh, Lord. Any other final comments where do we go from here? This may be the final debate of the season although I'm I'm predicting a lazarus like real. Resurrection by the President and he will definitely be better there for one of them. What, where do we go from here chill here here's my take on debates generally over the years is whichever candidate is perceived immediately to have a slight edge that tends to amplify with time So I think the fact that I think most independent observers would say that. Has. Had the better night that is going to amplify over time I don't know that it's going to really move this race but at this point at the race days, what it is, that's a huge advantage for her out for by so I I would look at it if we're we're looking at this for years from now eight years now we're talking about how Comma Harris really came into her own as a national candidate tonight. Big Band you want say something just that. Yeah I think that the certainly there is going to be another debate the there's no way that Biden can duck it regardless of what happens he's got his show up but has matt suit. Whatever but thing is, is that that first debate is the one that people remember. It's the one that most people watch and right now If you look at all the polling numbers and everything, the trump needs something to change and. I don't know that there's that many things left in these last twenty, seven days that can change change something that drastically. All right. Thank you all heather. Thank you. Special guest tonight. Having this John D. as the big man. John. Thank you all for being here, and hopefully, we'll see you again soon after the next debate. Closer Joe. I'd like to thank you for listening and hope that you and your families are safe and healthy. I like to think my friends and chronicle colleagues for staying late to join me.

"That was. All the Joe Biden mentioned about the violence in American. Cities that have now been ongoing for over three months and and it's like, okay what hear? No Evil See? No Evil Say no evil. How do you stick your head in the sand when people are dying and businesses of being destroyed and you just deny the reality I mean actually you know when I get back to regular programming which you know and obviously covering the news, which is what we do but you have a scene of fake news CNN with flames of flying everywhere fiery. Peaceful protests after police shooting there's nothing peaceful. Here. Joe Biden should go and get out of Delaware and just listened to families they're scared they're scared to walk the streets. They walked every day before how many reports do you see day in and day out of somebody being beaten to be in a coma but somehow that was a safe protest. Are you see buildings being burnt? I mean what's happening in Wisconsin? That's an Americana city of about one hundred. Thousand people and who's coming in and doing that comes from Chicago we watched. But what was the mayor of Chicago? She protects her street and thinks she has a right for her protection but the rest of the people their lives don't matter how is every single weekend? We hear a report of a young child or somebody else being shot and killed in those cities and what's the common denominator they've had Democrat. Governor. Give Democrat leadership for number of years and that's what you'll buy. How could he ignored that when you've watched city after city American after American afraid all they want is their way of life back again want security they want safety and they only see the president willing to stand up for it the only reason why you're getting National Guard troops down in Wisconsin because the president is pushing and pushing. Same thing happened in the other cities. Well, I gotTa tell you something this. This is now the biggest choice election in history. I would argue that if Republicans stay United Republicans lay out a plan for restoring law and order we see unemployment you know they're predicting twenty-five percent outs below ten percent and I did not expect these jobs to comeback this quickly but this guy, the very specific issues. Of. Okay. Well. Biden had eight years with Barack what did they? They didn't do criminal justice reform police perform opportunities, zones They didn't create the jobs it was the worst recovery since the forties they put thirteen million more Americans on food stamps and eight million warned in poverty and the worst labor participation rates since the seventies they said nothing about corona virus when it actually mattered into Donald Trump. was acting they were busy with their sham impeachment trial hoax.

Tonight, you're going to hear him you're GonNa, hear him layout the choice to the American people. We have some wonderful speakers over the course. This week I spoke to Senator Tim Scott Today I thought he was just. I thought he was just in inspiring on Monday night and and the first lady in the Rose Garden Karen an IRA privilege to be there, and then one speaker after another I saw I saw Herschel Walker today. Who spoke about his thirty seven year relationship with this president and and and and and the President Donald Trump that he knows. As a man and and and their mutual commitment to faith. And Freedom Tonight I think the American people are going to hear. You're gonNA hear this president lay out our record. You're going to hear this present, lay out a vision for the future, but you're going to hear him lay out the choice and I truly do believe. that. It's a choice of whether whether we are going to continue our nation on the path of the ideals and values have made America. Great.

"That that hadn't heard this yet is it with President Donald? Trump We we believe that you don't have to choose between supporting. The men and women who serve in law enforcement in supporting our African American community and other minorities that live in our major cities. We've done both for three and a half years, and we'll continue to do both for four more years Sean. You look at the record of this administration. This president, we provided resources for four thousand more police, officers through the cops program on the streets we provided resources and support law enforcement. You see police, officers, unions, endorsing president trump almost every day around this country, and at the same time though I couldn't be more proud. To be vice president into a president, who's economic policies saw the lowest unemployment rate ever recorded for African Americans he signed. He signed a record investment in historically black colleges and universities we've fought for school choice doubled the school choice program in. Washington. DC. That that President Barack Obama and Joe Biden set aside in and add all of that and all of that that we we've been standing up for law and order in our streets and and and as I said last night we we're going to have. Law and order for every American in all our cities and towns, and for every American of every race and creed and color the American people have every right to deserve that and President Donald Trump and I are going to continue to stand for that principle. We're GONNA fight for that principle and why while literally you have the Democrats who last week in their convention spoke not one word. About the about the chaos and mayhem and rioting in major cities around the country, you've heard one speaker after another address that issue this is this is this is about the future of our country and everything begins with the safety and security of the American people. Historically MR vice president after somebody secures a nomination and I would argue, Donald Trump stayed the same I mean Donald Trump and you pointed this out last night. He means what he says he says what he means and in other words, it didn't move right together nomination and move back to the center. But he's now we have Joe Biden I. Think it's a position of weakness has adopted who used to be an outlier. Bolshevik Bernie I comb is economic plan as the President calls it the Bernie Sanders Joe Biden Manifesto.

To the American people, the choice that we face. In this election as as I said last night I honestly believe with all of my heart. That while the Democrats said that democracies on the ballot. I believe our economic recovery is on the ballot law orders on the ballot but things much more. Foundational to our country on the ballot, not whether America will be more conservative or liberal more Republican or Democrat, more blue or read. It's whether America remains America and the privilege to be there at. Fort Mchenry?

Oh, my goodness you mean, freedom of religion exists in America. It was an interesting New York Post. Sort of water cooler topic as we talk Radio Liberal Democrats more likely to shutdown political talk over disagreement. Yeah. I would say that would that would be true I'd say is probably mainstream.

"You see a party four days of hatred for days of of cult like psychotic rage against all things Donald trump versus a party that showed America and it's and it's it's goodness is greatness. It's exceptionalism and the people that make great were on display every single solitary night they were the real stars of the convention. And you know now now we've got Nancy Pelosi Republicans enemy of the state I. Wouldn't I don't tell don't tell Joe Biden I wouldn't debate donald trump. If I were Biden, we're GONNA get into all of this year. And I will tell you see people from all backgrounds. All races speaking participating at this convention stories. I'm sure many most of you have never heard before now by the way in spite of predictions of twenty, five percent unemployment well, now the unemployment rate is below ten percent I personally did not think jobs would be coming back this quickly came back a lot faster than I thought there was Wall Street Journal piece back to low growth, the impact Joe. Biden's tax plan would be less income across the spectrum and a sluggish economy. Later, we're GONNA play the comments the one, the one decision alone Joe Biden. If you recall remember Joe Biden actually described in detail how you know he would shut down all coal burning plants that he would not only am I not opposed to the new green deal. My plan goes beyond it. You know no new oil drilling or fracking on federal lands. Kamla Harris I would ban fracking. She actually the words. Okay. Let me tell you what that means. Let me interpret that for you. That means the life blood of the world's economy. Now that we are energy independent for the first time in seventy five years that means we now rely again on on countries in the Middle East, many of whom happened to hate our guts and what does that mean they get to charge is pretty much any darn price they want to charge. There's a reason. Now oil prices are so low and and don't think collusion doesn't happen with the Saudis and other countries and Russia. Russia. Yet the hostile nation it is led by the hostile actor. That colluded with Hillary on the dirty Russian dossier full of Russian disinformation that was used the two thousand sixteen election that Russia Putin's Russia at that hostile.

"Well Elaine as of today August eleventh we've learned that Joe Biden has made his selection. It's Comma Harris. Can you comment on that and how that kind of fits into this discussion we've been having about the models of the vice presidency. Well. It's a very much in the partnership moult. There is no need for Joe Biden to pick someone from California. California will go democratic in the fall. I can pretty much say that right now. So it's not a balancing choice in the old fashioned way. Now, there is a little bit of a balancing aspect it in that we are now looking particularly in the Democratic Party at a party that has become very much a party of women and minorities, and in that respect he is playing to an important constituency in the party, but she also is someone who is very much in the partnership model. She is more like Joe, Biden than unlike Joe, Biden. She is somebody who is a sort of center left as Biden. She doesn't have any positions that would be called extreme although the Republicans are doing their darndest to try to turn Joe Biden into a Marxist, which is maybe one of the more ridiculous things I've ever seen in politics, but she really is somebody that's in the partnership model because Biden can trust her. He can trust her instincts to be like his instincts. She is not even logically different from him and I think that that's the essence of the Partnership Mall. One other thing to say about this, this could have been predicted. Remember that Joe Biden himself was chosen in the partnership model you didn't Joe Biden on. The ticket to deliver Delaware to Barack Obama that was going to happen anyway and so by himself was a very loyal help-mates to Obama understood how powerful that could be and clearly wanted to have a vice president who was like him okay and what's going to happen is to be all this fuss because she's woman and she's African American Sarah, but frankly, the bottom line is she's the person he feels most comfortable with and regardless of the fact that she's a woman that she's African American and so I think that that's what we have to bear in mind. All of our recent vice presidents have been in this mold. They've been people that the president himself felt comfortable with and. There was also this criticism that we start hearing about her though as she emerged as a leading contender that during the primaries in one of the debates, she had some pretty pointed words for Joe Biden's track record. But then that struck me in a lot of people also is incredibly sexist that they would charge her with that kind of political rhetoric when we didn't hear that about say George H W Bush when he was running against Ronald Reagan and they got picked to be his vice you got pay listen I mean that episode showed me and Maeve show Joe Biden as well. Is that she? Could do something that's very important for the vice presidential candidate to do she could prosecute. She could make the case she made the strongest case she could against. Joe Biden. Now, in the end, it didn't work right because African American voters new Joe Biden a lot longer frankly than she had and it was not persuasive. But the fact is that she was very pointed at very strong in doing that and I suspect that Joe Biden looked at that and said boy if she turned that against Donald Trump, that can be a real help I suspect is she's going to be a very tough prosecutor of trump. Just looking ahead. Do you expect the partnership model? As we know it now will endure or could there be some new model of how the vice president of the United States relates to the president and to power of the White House. I think it will endure I. Think it is proved. These presidents who had vice presidents who were partners one of the interesting things about them is that the three of them have all been two term presidents. In other words they've done a pretty good job and their partners have helped them. We don't know about trump whether he'll be two terms or not. So this by say, the first three I think the model will endure because I think that the people running for president themselves usually have an understanding of just how big the job has. Gotten and how overwhelming it is I. Remember I went into the White House just several weeks after the president and the vice-president had gone into the White House said, the feeling I had was drinking from a fire hose and I was a PhD in political science with a concentration American government. Al. Gore spent decades in the House and Senate Bill Clinton had been governor of Arkansas for more than a decade in other words even with an awful lot of governmental experience, you're still bit overwhelmed. And, having somebody who can help you with that I think is really valuable. There's element here which we've seen mostly with Hillary Clinton, which is that as we get into an era where first ladies have not been at home with the children but they've actually had careers and sometimes an interest in public policy like Hillary did you've got yet another very trusted person that you can ask to respond to these two and that's what? Clinton. Did with Hillary Clinton I think they need the help in the job, which is why I think the model will persist until it doesn't work politically. Lane I think we'll leave it at that.

"First step. Here's Sarah Bender on what's happening or what's not happening in Congress. I'm Sarah. Bender a senior fellow in governance studies at the Brookings Institution. We often say that Congress is gridlocked and is getting nothing done that can be an exaggeration because lawmakers can often address small stuff even when the party's deadlock on big problems. But right now in mid August it stalemate all the way round. So what's happening on Capitol Hill? or rather what's not happening in Congress and why not? The looming issue on the table were the parties actually negotiating is one more large scale emergency relief package. Before the November elections what's being called cares two point Oh following the mammoth cares package enacted almost unanimously in late March to address the economic and health crises caused by the spread of the corona. Virus. House Democrats passed a three trillion dollar heroes act in early May with funds to expand many of the more successful programs enacted in the original cares act unemployment benefits, cash payments to individuals, small business loans, grants to state and local governments, money for testing and so forth. In contrast, Senate Republicans took a wait-and-see attitude in may-june in part because the Republican conference was divided on whether Moore aid was needed and probably also because the states that were hit the worst by cove in nineteen word largely blue democratic states until that was no longer the case in July and August when the virus raced through Republican Red States. But. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell from Kentucky couldn't get his Republican colleagues on the same page and cleavages in the Republican conference. Undermine his ability more recently to put a rival one trillion dollar bill on the floor for a test vote. With Democrats pushing for a three trillion dollar heroes package and Republicans in the white. House not willing to come up to two trillion dollars talks broke down. Instead the president signed some executive orders that experts say can't possibly provide relief or hurting Americans nor revived economy or fight the virus. So. What's going on here? Big. Deals only become quote unquote must pass if both parties think they'll pay steep electoral cost for refusing to negotiate the deal. For the Democrats I see three reasons why a deal is must past I, Democrats have strong electoral incentives to act largely because the crisis hits working in middle income Americans. The hardest in those are typically democratic constituencies. Second Emergency Relief is idol logically compatible with Democrats governing philosophy. The government can't solve problems especially in a crisis that requires fiscal action. Third. Democrats remained remarkably cohesive empowering speaker Pelosi to steer the House majority to three. Trillion Dollar Heroes Act. What about the Republicans? Republicans should have an electoral incentive to act and go big their control of the white. House and Senate in the November elections hangs in the balance on the economic recovery which requires the US to tackle the virus. That's largely why I think they will eventually come back to the table to negotiate a deal but Republicans are hamstrung in a couple of ways. I president trump seems to think he can wish away the problem with executive orders and then blamed Democrats when the economy continues to falter. Second. The administration is divided between conservative White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and Treasury Secretary Steve. MNUCHIN, who's proven his ability to make deals with the Democrats, both meadows and Mnuchin are in the room trying to negotiate with Democrats and president trump is either uninterested or unable to choose between their two positions. Third Senate Republicans are divided about half are ideologically opposed to spending more federal money on emergency relief. Those Republicans tend to favor higher income constituencies in red states and most of those senators aren't up for reelection but other Senate Republicans support another infusion of emergency relief and especially those Republicans running for reelection in swing states who are at risk of losing their seats to well-funded Democrats. For Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has seated negotiations to the White House probably because Senate Republicans are so divided. He's likely involved behind the scenes but his absence as another element of dysfunction to this impasse. So. What's next will usually the advantage goes to the unified team with a more popular position. In this case, that's really the Democrats they have an incentive not to fold to Republican demands even in the face of a recalcitrant and many say. Republican White House. So stalemate lawmakers are now back home till mid September they could be called back of leaders reach a deal Republicans, may yet realize that winning in November or not getting wiped out requires war congressional. Or maybe not. Of course in September, Congress has to deal with government funding for the coming fiscal year that starts a cup of I. If they don't pass the spending bill, even temporary band aid to fund the Federal Government until after the election if they don't do that the government shutdown on October I, it's possible that cares two point Oh in stopgap government funding will be tied together to become a single bus pass bill in late September but even so economic damage and the virus will continue to surge across the united. States keeping schools closed sports team off the field Americans closed off and the rest of the world and from other. while. We anxiously await for an effective lexi. And now, here's my interview with Elaine, Kmart. Well Elaine welcome back to the Brookings Cafeteria. Thanks for having me for it. So as I mentioned in the introduction, we're here to talk about your new e book just published by Brookings Institution press picking the vice president obviously, it's a super timely book super timely topic. Let's talk in kind of the big picture and the historical picture about the things that you're writing box. Super Fascinating. Can you describe how the founding fathers conceived the Office of the Vice Presidency? Well the founding fathers who were so wise and so many things were pretty naive when it came to the topic of the vice president and that's because they were pretty naive about political parties and so they wrote in the initial constitution at the vice president would be the runner up to the president. Thinking of course that they could maintain the peace in unity they had under George Washington forever. Well, the minute George Washington was no longer president they had a political party system, and so you had a situation where President John Adams had vice president. Thomas Jefferson as his vice president and the two didn't agree on anything Thomas Jefferson spent his vice-presidency building his own political party in order to run against John Adams. So it just didn't work and they quickly changed that so that the president vice president were on the same ticket and they were the same political party. But the second important thing to realize about this is from eighteen thirty, one all the way up until nineteen sixty eight, we nominated our presidential candidates in both parties in conventions and those conventions were composed of. What we would call today's Super Delegates Party Leaders County chairman. State chairman from around the country and they came to the convention city and they actually deliberate it. They didn't have primaries. If there were primaries, they were meaningless. The convention delegates got to the Convention city and they engaged in days sometimes weeks of negotiations. Because that was the way the system worked guess what the biggest prize in the negotiation was to offer somebody the vice presidency, and often they would offer someone the vice presidency in order to get their delegates beyond the ticket and very often this meant that the president and the vice president didn't agree on much. They were from different factions of the party from different parts of the country and so much of our history we had some pretty dysfunctional presidents and vice-presidents. Modest, shot up for listeners that you've written a book about the President Primary. System called presidential primaries and think it's in its third printing. We've done a podcast on it. We email course on it. So that's a fascinating history and contemporary look at the presidential primary process itself that this the vice presidential pick is very much part of to talk about the dysfunction that existed a lot of the times between the president or the presidential nominee in the vice presidential nominee. He talked about some of the examples, the famous examples of sometimes where that Justin work. Yeah well, for instance, one of the famous examples was Theodore Roosevelt and his vice president guide from Indiana and the ticket was famously called the hot tamale the Indiana icicle because the two were so different Teddy Roosevelt's vice president spent most of his time sharing the Senate, which is constitutional duty and undermine everything the Teddy Roosevelt was trying to do the second Roosevelt to have this. Was Franklin Roosevelt whose first vice president was John Nance Garner who also disagreed with much of the new deal and tried to undermine Roosevelt in the Senate. So we've had two examples of vice presidents than if you go back include Thomas, Jefferson, there's three famous examples of vice presidents who not only didn't help the president, but they tried their best to screw up the president was doing..

"I've been there because you took me there. Thank you. But what is life? How does life there compared to the White House? It's not exactly as I said tourist destination, but it is. It is an experie-. Unto itself? Well, we drive by it every day, right? To come to DC. It's in this leafy neighborhood in northwest CC'd three miles about three miles from the White House. Like you said, people don't even know it's, there is this beautiful. You know, Queen Anne style house sitting on thirteen acres feels like being on a college campus in a way that the White House obviously does not. When I talked to Barbara Bush, she said that her eight years in the observatory were really magical. It's on one observatory circle. It is actually a naval observatory, and there are towards that go on not of the house itself, but of the observatory where they actually have strana murs. They are calculating distances. It's kind of incredible to have clock in front of it with the actual time the exact time of day that I guess is the time that we shall be going by. And it just feels very private. I mean, you could go out and your. She was saying, you know, you go out and walk your dog at six in the morning, your bathrobe and no one would bother you at the White House. A Staffel. Almost one hundred people are already working. There are members of the media, their secret service's overwhelming people love the observatory. There's a beautiful pool that you know a chain grandchildren, Biden's grandchildren. The quails kids who were, you know, in their middle school, high school years in the gorge Holdren really loved living there because it was so private in it's really beautiful house like you, like you said, I mean, you, it's just a very welcoming homey feel compared to the White House. My ROY Barden likes to joke the one of the best things Dan Quayle did was put in. Yeah, and Biden goes around and like shoots of water spray gun on the, you know he had a lot of fun, but this this dates back to the seventies when it became the official residence. And prior to that vice presidents just live wherever they live. Right right now, some Rockefeller was the first vice president who could have lived in the observatory Gerald Ford's I'm p, but he had so much money. He had this huge estate. Just use the observatory for formal events. The Mondale's where the I actually live there and you know, it's really interesting because I did a book on the resident staff at the White House. I talked to navy stewards who work at the observatory and it is members of the military. It's less than a dozen, whereas the White House, it's a hundred just to give you an idea and these are, you know, they do have cooks there who are in the navy and they're, they're, they're cycled in and out every couple of years and Cheney grew so close to a couple of them that they're actually working for him. Now in his home outside of DC fish stuff. Brower your excellent guest. And you have to say that every day. It's my U2..

"Just now change stands out in my mind. As being unique because he made it clear early on that for all the jokes about Cheney really being in charge and that kind of thing. He made it clear that he had no intention or interest in running for president himself, and that's really quite unique in modern politics. I mean, you go backwards. You talk about Mike Pence's aspirations, but we know Joe Biden ran unsuccessfully Al Gore, got the nomination and lost a Ugo backwards. Even Dan Quayle, even after he and President Bush lost reelection Dan Quayle explored running himself later. You keep going back and back everybody at some point, either ran or tried and whatever, but Cheney did not. And I know you also mentioned how the bush-cheney relationship went from good to less than good over the course of those eight years. But that approach being vice-president without that aspirated did that and some ways in power him in a different kind of way you talk about. L. Mondale redefine the job Cheney in his own way. Do that, but by lacking that intention. Oh, absolutely. I think it freedom enormously to just do what he wanted to do and have the influence that he wanted. I mean, at one point, he told Dave Addington who was one of his top staffers at Abington said, you wanna see your polling numbers is in the first term during the Iraq war in said, no, I'm not really interested in the Addington. We'll maybe we should look at them and talk about how they could be better. And Cheney was like, I don't care. And even at one point, he talked to Bush about dropping him and I asked him about it. Yes, he did. And he said, if you need to let me go, it's fine. You know. And I believe I don't think that he's lying about that. I think he would have just stepped aside and you know, let whoever came and went and actually Bush recommended that his father for Bush forty one drop Quayle replace Quayle with Cheney. So. So during the reelection campaign. So the idea of just being willing to step away from that, but I was really stuck struck when I talked to Cheney about how angry he still was about scooter Libby and the pardon. And there was just so much bad blood there over those eight years, I didn't realize that he would still be holding onto that one. He did, which I have to think had something to do with his relationship with Mike Pence and his influence on this administration. Cure talk fairly frequently have been books about this, but the ex presidents and their come rotary or the president's club. You mentioned Allah and you write about in the book about how Biden and Pence talk fairly regularly. Tell us more about that. And do you have any sense that any of the others talk with any frequency as the is there that same ongoing dynamic you mentioned as well Mondale being consulted, but is that kind of a one offered? Is that continue? Well, I think for Pence, inviting, especially interesting because of bomb in Trump's don't talk at all. So the only connection to the past ministration is really between the vice presidents and Penn Biden speak at least once a month. Biden told me in Pence's office did not dispute that. They talk mostly about foreign affairs. Biden's still talks to key people like the king of Jordan still very much a player, and I'm he wants to be seen as one too because he's obviously looking into running in twenty twenty. But I think there is commodity there. I mean, you know, I can't think of a past vice president of the six interviewed who does not have some relationship except for Al Gore. With the current administration. I mean, Quayle has talked to Pence Cheney obviously, Mondale even. So I think there's an ability of the vice presidents and you bring up an interesting point to maybe move beyond partisan politics in a way that presidents, we'll talk about the house. We talked about all the players in the and the people who've had the job. But I feel like it's something that people don't know too much about and even if you're visiting Washington as a tourist, you very well could zip right by the house and not even know it. It doesn't have quite the same presence as the White House does for the president, but it is the official vice presidents residents and you've been there..

"No, I know you wanna turn to like l. bridge, Gary and Hannibal Hamlin, and some of them are green. Okay. They will skip past. Okay. Historically, going back century more IT's because you know very early on in book. There's very cutting comments about this job, a bucket of insert bodily fluid here or the equivalent of death, but but it struck me that all the modern ones that you talk to and we should note here the talk to all six former vice presidents. They all had largely positive things to say about the experience. It felt like it was a net positive experience for them. None of them had such cutting thing to say it was the worst thing that ever happened me or anything like that, and but I wanted to ask you do one or two of them stand out to you even among that group as a specially loving the job, loving the role. A good question. I was going to say, Dan Quayle said, you know, of all the vice presidents, I talked to, he was the one that was the most maligned. In the role and he's, he was even happy to have done it. And he said, you know, I didn't get the brass ring, but I came as close as I would ever get to it and it's really not a bad thing to have on your headstone. You know that you were vice president of the United States. And I think a lot of them recognized that I think Cheney in that first term really did enjoy it. I think the way it ended for Al Gore really colored his view of it. I think he would have said if the two thousand election have ended the way it did that he especially enjoyed it. You know, George H W Bush became president because of his vice presidency for eight years. Ronald Reagan, and I think that he's somebody who especially enjoyed the role was very good at it because he had this experience. He had so much experience in government by that point, and he seemed to be not upset about being deferential. You know, I had asked if he could recount his proudest moment is vice president. And he simply said, history will have to judge that. And I think that says a lot about him. And then he also recounted a story. Favorite stories vice president was after Reagan, had been shot. He went to visit him at the hospital, and Reagan was on his hands in knees cleaning up a spill of water, and he didn't want the nurse to have to do it. And I just thought, I mean, that's incredible story in it says so much about Ronald Reagan. But it also says a lot about George H W Bush that he would not take credit for anything and be okay with that. Now, of course, he went onto become president job done in a century and a half, actually giving elected straight out of being vice president since Martin van Buren when he won. He said it's been a long time, Marty, you know? So yeah, he did something incredible. I think what's really interesting is Mike Pence says, George h.w Bush is his favorite vice president. And I think part of that is because of what Bush was able to accomplish also about his perception of the relationship that Bush had with Reagan. Is it somewhat? I think so. I mean, a lot of people. Well, in the Trump administration like to look at Donald Trump as being similar to Ronald Reagan. I mean, I don't. I, you know, they like to see him as an outsider in the same way. Reagan was, although Reagan was governor of California. So it's an insert of a huge personality in the way that Ronald Reagan was. So they liked to compare him to that, so it makes sense that Pence with compare himself to his vice president Joe Biden. Now, the perception of Joe Biden was that he reveled being vice president. He always had presidential aspirations so, but is it your sense that he talks quite a bit about his relationship with President Obama, but when it comes to the actual role, is it your reporting having talked him after he left the job that he it, it ended up being what he wanted to be..

Your favorite political director is off and we still have David's favorite thing of the week, the Friday feature and this week it is a special feature for me because we're going to talk to the person who probably is my favorite guest ever. Even though this will be the first time that she is a guest with me on the program. It is none other than Kate Anderson brower author of first in line presidents vice presidents and the pursuit of power. Hi, Kate. Hi, Harry kid, of course, is my wife and CNN contributor and author as well of the number one New York Times best over the residents as well as a seller for swimming about all the first ladies. But this book is about the vice presidency and we learn a lot in this book. And I want to start with a little news because much. Reaction this week to President Trump's performance in Helsinki with Vladimir Putin and where Trump pit his own intelligence team against Putin's denials. There's been a lot that develop through the course of the week as fall out from that. But you wrote a piece for CNN this week about the tense dynamic in particular between the president and Dan Coats is director of national intelligence who did something unusual writing statement, reasserting the intelligence communities assessment that he didn't clear through the White House. So it kind of added on top of that tension from other president said, and I bring all of this up because it relates vice President Mike Pence, and how Pence convince coats to take this job in the first place. And I thought I wanted to start there and get you to tell us more about that and what it tells us more broadly about the role that Mike Pence plays in Donald Trump's presidency? Well, I think it says a lot about Mike Pence that he surrounded himself with friends from Indiana. Dan Coats, of course, was a Senator. Oh, from Indiana, who was very close to Mike Pence. And Mike Pence is also close to Mike Pompeo secretary of state, but then the director brought him in and his relationship with Dan Coats has been long standing for years. And when I interviewed deny coats director of national intelligence, he said that he wouldn't have taken the job if it were not for Mike Pence asking to take the job, and I was surprised in December of twenty seventeen. So last year when I talked to him, I was surprised by that because you can't really imagine another. Let's say John Kerry when he was secretary of state during the Obama years, taking the job because Joe Biden, it asked him to usually there's a reverence for the president. You take the job because of the president, and because you are so proud and excited to do this and be part of this administration. And I felt that within coats it was something he was reluctant to do. He wanted to retire. He was ready to leave DC any came back because Mike Pence asked him to and he felt he had to. To, I think you see this will allot of the elder statesman. Like Jim Mattis whose Defense Secretary, they feel that they have to be part of this administration because they have experience. They can help guide a very inexperienced President Donald Trump, whether you love him or hate him doesn't have a lot of experience in government. Do you think the data day from your reporting is it is Pence his relationship with other people in the administration as central as as the president's own? Yes. I think that he is a very powerful vice president, but I don't think that he is on par with someone like Dick Cheney during Bush's first term simply because Donald Trump is this just larger than life personality and will not delegate that much authority. He will not allow Pence to take credit for things for instance than the vice president is surrounded by people who very smartly, keep him insulated from a lot of the gossip. And I think also it keeps him away fr-. From anything that would anger the president. For instance, when he attacks reform was pushed through, he played a huge role in that going up to congress, almost daily at one point in talking to Paul, Ryan and others we've close to and they never wanted to credit for any of it because they didn't want to anger the president..

"But even the vice president's beginning with nixon till nelson rockefeller are often were kept out of the major meetings when lyndon johnson would have his meetings to decide strategy on the warned vietnam he rarely invited vice president hubert humphrey to attend those meetings uh johnson often wasn't included in the in a president kennedy's inner circle so it really is just been with the mondale vice presidency the vice presidents have routinely been included in the president's inner circle and that's a practice that has been followed for more than forty years three democratic administrations and four republican administrations and so it seems to be enduring a quite different than what we see in veep or in some of the other shows like west wing for instance the vice president was always a treated sort of very marginally given the evolution of the role of the vice president what do you think it is going to be going forward i think that the model that was created by carter and mondale and now has been followed on a bipartisan basis um i think is likely to endure the practices that they began which have been repeated his head sort of a sticky quality and the fact that other administrations have followed this idea of the vice president is part of the inner circle in the white house i think in part his been because the model works and a particularly works where the vice president is enable person who develops and sustains a strong relationship with the president and the other people around him or her so i think that as long as we continue to have abel vice presidents as long as they're attentive.
