Giuliani Esteban, Savory Ukrainian characters have not let up their efforts to use Ukraine to interfere in U. S politics. Others in the Senate seem intent on amplifying their efforts. Menendez wants the new nominee, retired Lieutenant general Keith Dayton, to avoid playing into this and avoid any meetings with Giuliani.

Dayton has been a defense attache in Moscow, a security advisor for the U. S on the Israeli Palestinian conflict, and, in recent years has run the George Marshall European Center for Security Studies in Germany. He's well versed on Ukraine, but his answers frustrated both Menendez and another Democrat Chris Murphy. So at the end of the hearing, he did offer this reassurance. Ify is the U.

Tech's four biggest companies are going on trial
"Important tech hearings up on Capitol Hill, where the CEOs the four largest tech companies are due to appear before Ah House Judiciary subcommittee on Anna trusted to answer questions about whether they have become and a competitive and won't return. Now to Emily Chang. She is anchor of Bloomberg Tech. We were rudely interrupted before I'm delighted you could be back with us, Emily So let's talk about this. We're talking about the four cos they're all big. They're all tech, but they're actually quite different company. One from the other. How can there be a through line from this investigation on these four different companies? Absolutely, And that's a very good point, David, Each of these CEOs of each of these four companies could have their own multi day hearing. The issues are very different with Facebook. It's misinformation and advertising with Google is advertising and search, which, with Apple, it is The APP store with Amazon. It is how these companies treat third party sellers. Jeff Bezos is somebody that we're really going to be watching here, the CEO of Amazon and also the richest person in the world because he's never testified before Congress before, and there are a lot of people who want to hear what he has to say in his prepared remarks, which were also a little bit different. From the rest. He talked about how his parents invested in Amazon in the early days. A typical and true American success story. He's also the owner of The Washington Post says that that could bring out a little more idolatry from the lawmakers. We don't know, but it's definitely going to be interesting to see how these lawmakers throughout their questions because they could basically ask anyone Anything at any time. So there's a chance that this could be all over the map, especially given that this is a virtual hearing. You're gonna have some of the lawmakers in the room. The hearing has been delayed because they're basically cleaning up from the last hearing. You've got staffers inside now washing it down. But all of the CEOs will be calling in virtually So your comments suggest there is another person not in the room who may be quite important that is Donald J. Trump the president, United States He's not been shy in his criticism of some of these tech companies at all. What is the potential influence of the president here? Absolutely. And David we actually just in the last half hour, So got another tweet from the president focused on Big tech, the president tweeting. If Congress doesn't bring fairness to Big Tech, which they should have done years ago, I will do it myself with executive orders in Washington. It has been all talk and no action for years and the people of our country are sick. And tired of it. Of course, the president tweets themselves have been the subject of much controversy, especially how Facebook in particular has handled his tweets. The one about looters and shooters threatening violence on the American people threatening violence on protesters in Washington, D. C. Facebook has made the decision to let those posts stand unflagging not behind. A warning of any kind, and that has kicked off. Ah lot of controversy. Facebook is in the middle of an ad boycott. Right now, you've got massive advertisers who have pulled their advertising from Facebook for the month of July and some for the foreseeable future. So you can expect Facebook to be the subject and Mark Zuckerberg in particular, probably of the most iron from these lawmakers. Lots of concern. About anti conservative bias on the right and also concerns from Democrats as well. You've seen Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential candidate, also taking aim at Facebook, and in fact, President Trump has already used his executive powers to sign an executive order asking The FCC to take a look at old laws that give companies like Facebook and Google and Twitter protection from liability over the content that those users users post so we could expect that to be a really hot button issue today. Well, it's a fascinating point. This is Washington where the rules as we both know are different, but this is the antitrust subcommittee, the House Judiciary Committee. Theoretically, they're supposed to do with competition issues. Not the substance of speech. And yet I wonder whether it would be a fair amount of questions that have nothing to do with that. I trust her competition at all it has to do with political bias. Absolutely. And look, I've talked to all of the company's going into this. They're expecting questions to be all over the map. It is not all going to fall under the antitrust umbrella, and we know that at some of these lawmakers, we're gonna have sort of personal bones to pick with these companies whether or not one of their posts personally was flagged. Or not, And it's been interesting hearing from the critics as well. You've got CEOs of other big tech companies like the CEO of Spotify, the CEO of Epic games and maker of Fortnight. I've spoken to these folks in the last couple of weeks in the last couple of months, and they've been speaking out about thes companies saying that Apple, for example. Is American, Apple and Google are a duopoly. You've heard a lot of criticism going into this about how these companies run their businesses, and that's what these lawmakers have been hearing now on. The other side of these four companies have massive lobbying operations that they've turned over. One source told me voluminous amounts of documents, millions and millions of pages. Stating their case stating their side to make sure that these lawmakers are informed and we should hope that these lawmakers are going into this with with some level of the right information you know in the past. When Mark Zuckerberg, for example, testified before Congress for the first time, some lawmakers didn't understand how Facebook's business model actually worked. So we'll be watching to see whether or not these lawmakers actually understand the businesses and the points That they want to make. It was a famous exchange. How do you make your money If you don't charge for, he said, Well, we sell advertising Senator. That was quite an exchange. Emily. Thank you so very much Want to treat you have you with us? That's Bloomberg technology anchor Emily Chang, and we're going to bring you the hearing when it finally gets underway on Capitol Hill. Meanwhile,

Bowman is a former school principal from the Bronx, and the race was widely seen as a contest between the parties Progressive Wing and the Democratic Old Guard the continuation of the dynamics in two years ago in New York. With the election of Alexandria. Ocasio Cortez. Jamal Bowman is here with me now. Welcome and congratulations. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me. So you ran on a progressive platform in one of the bluest district in the country, New York 16th. But now, you know, I want to look ahead with you. Assuming you do end up in Congress, which is what most people are assuming, Let's just talk about how you intend to work with the rest of the Democratic caucus in the House. I want to start with the fact that you ran on Medicare for all. But the presumptive Democratic nominee for President Joe Biden, opposes Medicare for all. So how do you expect Democrats to resolve this issue on health care? A lot of conversation. Ah, lot of dialogue, Lather debate lot of listening a lot of learning on a lot of bridging the gap. I mean, the bottom line is the majority of the American people support Universal health care, a single payer system and Medicare for all, they supported that prior to the culvert pandemic, and now that we are living with in the midst of that pandemic. People supported and higher numbers. But here's the challenge. I mean, more generally. Obviously, this is a general election year. What do you say to the argument that pushing liberal policies during a presidential election year progressive policies? Could alienate voters in swing states and swing district. I don't think they will again when the majority of the American people are surveyed and pulled on this issue, the majority of the people support This particular issue, But beyond Medicare, for all, I mean, how do you make ideas like the green New deal or de funding the police popular in moderate district's? We're living in a different country at this moment, then we were even six or eight months ago. We have over 40 million people out of work as a result of the pandemic, So we need a federal jobs guarantee under the umbrella of a green new deal. We have kids who are losing quality education town because of the pandemic. So we need to fully fund our public schools called it disproportionately impacts. Those were upper respiratory illness as it relates to environmental injustice, So we need to deal with the environmental emergency. All of the things that we've kept swept under the rug for decades are now coming to light. As a longtime educator. What do you think? Is the single most important thing lawmakers Khun do to make life better for black Children? We need to start with a process of truth and reconciliation and really reckoning with our history of racial injustice and the legacy of slavery and how it continues to persist in all of our communities, and as we craft policy and worked together, we have to also look at the implementation of that policy, not from the perspective of a Scarcity, mindset or a zero sum game. This is about collaboration, cooperation and working together the build the country that works for everyone, But can you be specific? Can you talk about one specific policy idea that you would like to push? To get passed through Congress that could actually get past. By a Republican led Senate If the Senate does not flip in 2020 We need to give people back to work first and foremost, when we talk about full over 40 million people who have lost their jobs, their happening in Republican states and districts as well. We need to finally deal with economic inequality in our country. You need to make sure the wealthy pay their fair share and large corporations pay federal taxes so that we can invest in the people of our country. Get people back to work. A lot of comparisons have been drawn between you and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, also a progressive Democrat. What have you learned watching her navigate her first term in office. Is there anything you intend to do differently? Well, I've learned that it's okay to be myself. You know, Congresswoman Ocasio Cortez eyes a tremendous leader. She's brilliant. She's fearless, going against a system of white male supremacy, a cz. She's broken a glass ceiling in that system and created species. For new conversations that center, the working class and those who are most vulnerable. So I've I've learned it's okay to be myself and speak truth to power on the issues that matter, most to the people who have been mostly forgotten. Jamal Bowman, winner of the Democratic primary in New York, 16th congressional District, which covers parts of Westchester and the Bronx. Thanks for being with us, and congratulations again.
