Inside Washington's Name Change

"John How's it? Goin'? It's been a little bit busy. You might be having the busiest off season well, always busy right now to all the deck Prescott stuff, but but you pretty busy. It was on? July six and a couple of things happen. I told my wife said. I'm about to work in eighteen hours a day on July six. NFL. Opposite in what is going on, and it turns out. That was actually probably a pretty good day in hindsight. John covers the Washington DC based NFL TEAM FOR ESPN Since. We are talking about names I. Do feel it's necessary to point out your John Crime I- Amina climbs two different names not. Although I will say had some relatives. Years back did like genealogy, and at one point, it was kind real in Europe, so we could be related I. Just want to put that out there well. I do get mistaken for you. Know I think there's a similarity so. So back to the name at hand. John The Washington football team announced on Monday after much speculation many reports that they will be retiring their nickname and logo after completing review that began on July third. This has been a conversation for a very very long time, but the team's principal owner Daniel. Snyder has been on the record. Saying the team would never in all caps literally change its name, and then here we so before we get to why this happened. And what's GonNa Happen Next? I just want to ask you as a beat reporter. Did you ever think this day would come? Well. Let me let me step back from that pre. George Floyd, no, because in the past. We've had a deal with this topic many times over the years especially in the last seven. I think the rise of social media has kept it alive, but during that time the plan the strategy here for the reds for Washington was to write off the storm. Just weather the storm. Go go to reservations connect with native Americans and do something like that then when you saw the social unrest this year. You started to seep in your head like they're gonNA. Come after them again and I'll tell you when it really really thought they work to be about. Run at this time was. There was a stretch it about a week where George Preston Marshall, who original owner of the of Washington? And he named the team, and he moved the team from Boston, to Washington will statue was outside their old stadium are k. well. They removed the statue, not the team, but a company in DC that owns that land, so you tweet that out and I'd say. Say Ninety percent of the mentions after that on twitter, where about what about the what about the name? What about the name? The next day team says they're going to retire bobby? Mitchell's number only retired one of the number in their franchise history, so they tweet that out and I wrote a story. Put out there. What about the? What about the name? I've. There's just becoming way too much of everything. They did route this. If they put out a statement about George Floyd about black lives matter, it would always come back to their team name. It was to a level that I hadn't seen before. It does seem though at least from the outside that the true catalysts the thing that pushed this over the edge was the teams naming sponsor Fedex and Fedex asiyo. WHO's a minority owner coming out on the record against the name? Yes and I'm going to back up a couple of weeks before that because there some parallel timelines that led to I think this occurrence and one of which was Dan Snyder had reached out I was told by multiple that he had reached out to the League a few weeks before that, and had already started to engage in conversations with the NFL, Roger Goodell about a possible name change along that same time there's the group of eighty seven shareholders and investors were combined six hundred twenty billion dollars in the lead by investor advocacy groups, so they're the ones who targeted Fedex Habsi company Nike Bank of America. It wanders sponsors. If you don't sever your ties here, you know. That's what they want to sever their ties, and so that's what they're pushing. When Fed, ex came out with the statement. That's when when people I've talked to said. That's when they knew it was over. I WANNA to talk about those groups. All of the activists who've been working tirelessly on this for years, but I thought it might be helpful to break down why the name exists in the first place. Where does it come from? The name when it first. Started I guess or was mentioned throughout history was about refer to the color skin and there is. I've got her who worked for the Smithsonian magazine, went back and researched it and found that it was way that native Americans would refer to other to differentiate themselves from. Whites or blacks or whomever else was here, so they referred themselves the redskins than it seemed to segue into a negative connotation, which you know, you'd see posters or read about posters, offering rewards for bringing fifty dollars for bringing the scalp, redskin or bringing Redskin, in which meant the scalp, so it certainly segue into something. That was a negative connotation. So how did it come to be the name of this particular NFL franchise? That's a great question, so we go back to nineteen thirty two and for anybody listening I was not covering the team at that time so nineteen who? Shared a stadium with baseball's Boston braves, so they were called. The Boston braves the following year. They moved to Fenway Park with the Boston Red Sox, so the story that that no his come about from that is that they wanted some sort of. Alliteration with the Red Sox, and so they went with the Redskins, but they also had a coach Lone Star Dietz and several native American players on the roster, George Preston Marshall said he was naming it basically in part because they had a native American coach. Now there's controversy over long star deeds whether he was actually native American up, but that was the given explanation at that time.

In terms of the prospects of the season and the concerns and the fact that things. You said the other day you, you're running out of time to correct things What are you looking for? And what are you? What is your conference looking for over these next two to three weeks? That will help you. Identify the proper decision to move forward. There are any number of. Opportunities to learn which is the way we've always viewed What was it play out, so we'll go back to April. One of the guiding points and I think I've shared with you this. This comment from one of our faculty members is take as long as you can to make major decisions because you will have better information. so my comments last week over the weekend on Mardian McGee or an indication that the trends.

Things will never change. We've seen the news around cove in nineteen. alter itself in different ways over a number of weeks.

Experienced since June eighth the ability to support our student athletes and a very healthy way, within our athletics, programs or other activities that are permitted today, more that could come for most program beginning, July twenty fourth, which NCAA is permitted third point, the autonomy, five conferences have been working diligently now for weeks and months to develop a common testing expectation.

Our colleague conferences at the bowl subdivision. Or awaiting those other others in Division One are also waiting those expectations. The fourth is all it's happening. In the return of sports at the professional level over the next few weeks, so we saw major league soccer I watch more major league soccer last night than I.

A NASCAR race Wednesday, that is in a what was a football stadium several years ago in Bristol Tennessee with thirty thousand fans in attendance first time to see a larger crowd if that opportunity still exists so all of those are important learning opportunities, but the fundamental is my first point, which is we have to see? See a change in public health trend to build the comfort that will have an opportunity to compete this fall and plenty of people can say Oh, you shouldn't. It's not going to happen. Make predictions, and they go back to Governor Cuomo in June. WHO said I'm done with predictions. I'm done with models. We're GONNA.

"Hey Brian. Stuff Lauren Volvo bomb here. On June twenty sixth of twenty twenty, the US. House of Representatives passed historic legislation that would transform the district of Columbia into the nation's fifty first state. The bill would give the district's current, seven, hundred, five, thousand, seven, hundred and forty nine residents, the opportunity to elect the Congress member and two senators with full voting rights for the first time in the nation's history, though the bills still faces an uphill battle in the US Senate. Currently Washington DC has a nonvoting delegate to the House. Eleanor Holmes Norton who introduced the statehood legislation, but has no say in its passage as well as two shadow senators who similarly cannot vote on legislation. The bill would shrink the federal capital to a small area encompassing the White House Capitol, Building Supreme, court and other federal buildings along the National Mall the rest of the city would become the fifty first state. House Speaker Nancy. Pelosi said in a news conference for more than two centuries. The residents of Washington DC The district of Columbia have been denied their right to fully participate in their democracy. Pelosi said that the importance of giving Washington DC full voting rights was demonstrated this month when the administration of President. Donald trump employed federal law enforcement agents and National Guard troops against protestors in Washington DC without the residents approval. House majority leader. Steny Hoyer said. This is not just an issue of local governance and fairness. It's a major civil rights issue as well. At this point, the legislation is a largely symbolic statement that few expect to pass at least for now because it would have to get through the Republican, controlled US Senate where majority leader Mitch McConnell indicated an interview with Fox News that he would deny vote. Even if the Senate did approve it. Trump most likely would veto the measure. Trump said to the New York Post in May. Why so we can have two more Democrats senators and five more congressman. No, thank you. That will never happen. But the current controversy raises another question. Why didn't the nation's founders make Washington DC estate in the first place a when they decided to create a new national capital? Why did they choose to deny residence the same representation in the national government, but the rest of the nation citizens have. As historians explain Washington's lack of full representation has mainly to do with two things I. There was a desire on the part of some of the founders to have a strong federal government. That wouldn't be dependent upon the state. It was in for services and protection. But it also has something to do. Southern slaveholders desire to have a national capital in their territory with Week self-governance, so that slavery wouldn't face any local political resistance, even after the civil war, segregationists in Congress fought for many years to keep control over the district's administration and deny any power to the city's.

This would be a small, not the smallest as the congresswoman note. But it would be a quite a small state on. The, the one of the big things that would be attractive about statehood I think is that it would give. Greater capacity to. Engage in kind of remove the limitations created by the Home Rule Act. That were quite odd and bad, and the country mentioned one of them which is the enshrinement of the height of Buildings Act which stops DC from. Removed from DC the ability to approve taller buildings, and as a result office space in DC is extraordinarily expensive and residents are extraordinarily expensive because. Full rights to allow construction further statehood would give DC the power to tax out of St residents who work in the city, and this has always been one of the major opposition. Politicians from Maryland and Virginia have had to DC statehood on the. That power would be granted. DC would also lose some things though DC got a bunch of special benefits in a particularly in the nineties during it's part of the bill out of city government that on the would, and so DC would get and lose from statehood as kind of as a governing in today. And we are almost out of time, but congressman and I want to read this tweet to you and give you just about thirty seconds or so respond. They said please ask about the way. The feds hold the DC budget hostage year after year forcing DC to issue bonds to cover its own money. I would appreciate you expanding on this economic interrelation. What the what she's referring to is that our budget raised here entirely in the district of Columbia has to be signed off by the Congress of the United States absurd, because they don't put a dime. In that budget, and this is the kind of nominally that we've been trying to get rid of through. Through just getting full home home rule so the the the they're probably benefits, the country to mention to the district If we were to be a state, it is important for me to say one important thing, and that is one of your listeners talked about Maryland and Virginia and that they could be taxed. Please note that all four senators. From our two adjoining states, Maryland and Virginia our sponsors of the DC statehood bill. They know they could pay face some possible taxation that is always negotiated with the with the entity involved. A minute to go David. You think that proponents of statehood have been far too focused on Congress so tell us what should they be focused on instead if the actually want to make this happen? These should be focused on making DC as estate work, and I think that this would require a state constitution that was designed to solve the particular problems of DC is a state, and so I think they need to include in their state that were they ought to considering concluding in their state constitution rules governing kind of a mandatory contributions to a rainy day fund that are stricter than most places given the this the the new state's capacity for kind of booms and busts, and they should focus on or the consider adding to their electoral rules. Things designed to create internal electoral competition so that. Local officials face kind of partisan competition inside the city is not come from national political parties, but from some degree that would create some degree of Internal Competition David. Schleicher is.

"Into new voices to the conversation on DC. Statehood Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton is DC's representative congresswoman welcome. Thank you with you and David Schleicher is professor of law at Yale. University, and author of the essay welcomed a new Columbia, the fiscal economic and political consequences of statehood for DC David Welcome. Thank you so much for having congresswoman. Your position as DC's representative is interesting, given DC status. What do you do as representative and tell us what power? If you can't vote in Congress well. It's interesting that actually I have every other single power. Except that final vote on the House floor and let me tell you what that means. I can share a subcommittee I do share one neck and share full committee I vote in committee. do everything that every representative ties, but when it comes time to cast that final vote, including boats that affect only the district of Columbia every member of the House of Representatives can vote except the member who has been elected by the residents of the District of Columbia. So, what does it feel like to never be able to vote on final passage for one of your bills? Well, frankly I've never felt disempowered and the Congress because I walked in the door, saying. Saying I'M GONNA? I'm going to act like every other member of Congress and demand to be treated like every other member of Congress I have it? It's not me. The problem is with the people I represent I. Get all the respect I need in Congress, but they get no respect when that final vote comes, and everybody can cast a vote except the member who represents them now DC. Statehood has been central to your platform for decades. Can you tell us what's important to you? It's important to me and personally and as a member personally because I'm a third generation Washingtonian. My great grandfather was a runaway slave. He got here to freedom, but Nobody in the homes family has made it to equality. Far beyond that, though it's important to me because I represent. Americans who pay the highest federal taxes per capita? And have no vote in the House of Representatives. that's an amazing notion when you think about it, because highest per capita means more than in the largest states and the richest states like New York in California, and did we pay more federal taxes. than twenty two states. That's what we contribute to the United States of America without having. A vote If you look at the district and people will say well, you know that's just a city well as larger than two states. my Wyoming and Vermont. And and they say well the. Certainly, it's not. It's not in fiscal terms equal. Where we have a budget of almost sixteen billion, that's larger than the budget of fourteen states. And, if you WANNA look at whether or not, we are ready to be a state as I. We have been since the nation was created, but Some dollars and cents for you. TRUMP AAA bond rating. Is better than that of thirty five states. Cool can count themselves well. Let's bring. Let's bring in David Schleicher professor of law at Yale University David. What do you think are the potential problems with DC statehood? Show the case for DC state, who always been very focused on Congress and the effect of the statehood will have and providing representation in Congress, but for residents, the biggest effect would not be in having representation in Congress, but rather in changing the form of their own government. Deceased estate would be quite unique. It'd be the only state that is entirely in one metropolitan area, and it would even beyond that just be the city and not have control over tone, suburbs or any of its suburbs. This would be unique among the state. This is a pretty big affects on it. It is a fiscal entity taxing and spending its economy and on its politics. I think is good idea. All things told that proponents need to think really hard about how to sheep independent. Shaped. Sheep Steve Hood in order to address these problems. What do you say to that congresswoman? I've heard of augments against statehood, but I'M GONNA say. To the professor, that's unique. It is true. That this would be a unique state. it wouldn't be like every other state. It wouldn't have what he calls a metropolitan area or suburbs. But that has nothing to do with statehood. Statehood ought to be about whether in every single respect. With respect to the other states. You are entitled to statehood. Now if you if you WANNA look and and and see. About about suburbs, we have suburbs here. And they in fact. vote or treating in many ways as a metropolitan area. That's what would happen if we became a state. So this the if we get hung up on something as trivial as a state has to look like this has to have these things than we have lost sight of the constitution and of the latitude that the framers gave us to form states. We got this voice mail from a listener about why they think DC shouldn't be a state. Here's Bob from Lancaster. Washington DC an obvious, they call ours. The constitution forbids. The desired, have Washington. DC is a state. It's just a powered. By Democrat. Thank you both for leaving us that voicemail. David as Bob Right would making DC state the unconstitutional. No. Alice from conservatives like Viet Dinh to the ACS liberal like liberal organizational. You, have gone through the tissue extensively and the legal argument against statehood are silly on the. There'd be a small problem created by the fact that the twenty-third amendment allocates electoral votes to. Strict and the district would then be shrunk to a very small area by statehood, which would leave three electoral votes in the hands of a very small number of people, but other than that the arguments about that Maryland need sign off because the land was given to from Maryland to to create the district. People think have very little merit on, and so there's no real constitutional problem. The question is about advisability much more than it is about the law. David your response to an email here. From Stephen DC the state would be the only fully urban jurisdiction Congress residents of cities around the country, even mid size and small cities would gain new ally in expressing their concerns on a wide range of issues. This will be especially valuable for urban residents of Republican. States like Louisville Kentucky Tulsa Oklahoma Phoenix Arizona, Houston, Texas and so on. So I think. It'd be very salutary for Congress. The big question I have and I think there's only could be dealt with Steve Constitution is. The fact that would be A. Uniquely shock prone as state, and it would not have the federal government standing behind it the way that it did you win defaced its fiscal crisis in the Mid Ninety S. The city the would if there was a decline in demand for urban property or the federal government shrunk by a certain percentage, just because of politics, or whatever you could see a really major fiscal shock to a city that couldn't balance against having control having being able to tax the suburbs. Or couldn't balance again. Another metro city in it state and so i. think that those are the questions of downtown. Four to the effect Congress would be quite good on that. It is in fact, the case that the US Senate particularly is biased towards rural areas the house to some degree. and that statehood would would help push against that. Congresswoman. You heard the voicemail that we played a moment ago from Bob. He said that DC statehood is a power grab by Democrats. What's your response to that? I think that that's the fear. And I can understand that fear, because most big cities are democratic, and that that indeed has is what is on the mind of a Republicans and then the country has to ask itself. is admission to the union dependent upon. the. Politics of those who seek admission, and if your answer is yes, then you don't. You. Don't want any state admitted until you do a poll and see how they would vote, so we recognize that that is a challenge to us. We're prepared to meet that challenge I met me. Give you an example of how we're going to meet it. we look at the election coming up where you see. The president opposes statehood in the Senate opposed to statehood, and then we look at what the polls are showing recognizing fully that polls can change. But. They are so overwhelming. That? We are heartened by the fact. That It looks like Democrats take the Senate. And, it almost surely looks like we will have a new president of the United States so those who look at a moment in time to try to figure what will happen with a specific bill need.

"To bring you the news you need to know. As protests over the death of George, Floyd and the unequal treatment of black Americans continues in cities across America. The response in Washington DC has been starkly different. Much of that is because the nation's capital home to the White House in the seat of US federal government is a district and subject to different jurisdiction than a state. Washington. DC has a mayor and a member of Congress, but it's representation looks more like a U. S. territory. So when president trump on Monday called for governors to dominate protesters, he was uniquely situated to deploy military units in Washington DC. Since then at least five thousand eight hundred troops, agents and officers have taken to the streets of the district. Humvees rumbled down DC streets. A UH LAKOTA helicopter flew low over protesters. More and more fencing has gone up around the White House making the Executive Mansion. Look more like a fortress. The police force on the ground includes the national, Guard Secret Service Park Police FBI DA, US marshals bureau of Prisons Customs and Border Protection, ice and more. These are not exactly beat. Cops used patrolling the streets. On Thursday Washington DC, Mayor Murray thousand had. She requested that President Trump, remove all federal law enforcement and military presence from the city. She argued that the units are inflaming and adding to the grievances of people protesting. Amid the ongoing battle over the streets of Washington DC bowser shared a new image on Friday morning. Overnight local artists and city officials began painting black lives matter in massive yellow letters on Sixteenth Street right near the White House. Let's get to the point..

And in fact, the book a book one of the books written about her is called the common scold. All right. We're getting towards the end year. But why is this important because this is during the second grade awakening so religious men thought the route into more filling the pews up with more people was going to be through the women. So convinced the women that everybody in the family needed to be religious. And you keep the churches filled. If you have a woman writing about how these men are all scoundrels that's not good for business. So they take her into court. She is convicted. And when she's convicted she's convicted to this ducking in the in the Potomac river, the judge in this case. However, prosecutors did not have the power they have today and the judge decided that it was medieval to duck somebody in the water twenty four years later. She dies, but in one thousand nine hundred six no ducking. No, no ducking, and no dunking because the judge decided it was too medieval, and the story ends nicely in one thousand nine hundred six she was portrayed as quote, the policewoman of truth, who's newspaper with fiery truthfulness, and knifelike probings of the public and private affairs of men and women.

Hi slate plus interest in what you think happens next with the survived the challenges, and if I be in Helbig and hobby lobby I mean, what's next after the DOJ opinion. Right. Well, so we should make clear the Justice department can withdraw from the suit and other folk can defend the suit. So it's not as if that means that oughta Mattingly, this judge's ruling becomes the final word there will be appeals. And when the stugotz made his ruling law professors across the political spectrum denounced it as like crazy. It just didn't seem like it was tethered in any way to all the rules about when you sever provisions and when you strike an entire law down. So I don't think that really will be upheld. But as we know. You know, other challenges to the Fourtou Care Act that seemed way out there round up with you know, three or four votes on the supreme court. So I, you know, we'll have to watch and see and already a couple of the justices. I think it's a Lido and Thomas have expressed some sympathy for this view, so not gonna get zero votes. Drew Clark on my questions for Emily. You talked a lot about prosecutorial discretion and how that's kind of ballooned with the limiting of judge's discretion. But it seems to me there's there's one or at least or even to more fundamental issues in one is just how we get rid of these three strikes, and you're out types of laws are those mostly federal or state. How do we address that? And also could you just address the role of drug laws, and how crazy they've gotten and should should congress be more focused on scaling back penalties for marijuana and other minor crime uses overt or the three strikes laws or? Or or these prosecutorial things that you focused on most of the three strikes laws that remained. In fact, our state laws on some of them have been reformed or even struck down California and a ballot initiative pulled back on its three strikes law in general, I think one answer to how do we ratchet down from these harsh sentencing laws just a preview to hear the rest?

"You can tweet them to us at at sleet, gabfest, something that you were going to be chattering about your cocktail party and from darla cash, Ian at at bossy Magoo. Darlas sent this dismal story about Matt Bevin who's the governor of Kentucky, and he doesn't believe in the chicken pox vaccine. So he takes his took his nine kids to a chicken pox party. Instead and got them chicken pox that way, and he's sort of hearkening back to certainly my childhood. I think I think I should ask my parents. I think that we the exposed me to chicken pox because it was in the pre vaccine era, and it's that's old timey. It's nice like to do it all time anyway, but as everyone knows the CDC advises against this. And it's there are some deaths from chickenpox and older at serious you can turn into shingles. And also kids who get it kids can get it and die or have serious illnesses. And and so I think fortunately, none nothing untoward happened to Matt Bevin Matt Bevins' children. But it's not a wise thing to do. And it's very disappointing that you have this anti vaccine behavior from a governor. My chatter is about Endel Endel was signed latest artists signed to a big distribution deal. By Warner Music twenty albums coming in the coming year. I think we're going to listen to some Endel is Endel the hip hop star. From Delaware is end all the latest. Swedish DJ is Endel a Scottish boy band. No Endel is an algorithm that creates ambient mood music based on your, you know, like what the weather is and your heartbeat and has now released a bunch of albums on Spotify and going to release a bunch more of albums on Spotify. And it's frankly terrifying to know that that music is is the latest thing that's going to be conquered by the robots. Let's listen to some Endel. This is called one gentle haze from sleepy foggy morning. I just love that. I didn't feel like replacing all it felt like the music they play when every spaceship arrives for the first time. Well, that's what isn't that. What the robot? Would you the robots like, yeah? That's that's the future, man. But I think we can there's there's already a robot newscaster in China and AI newscaster. And I think we can look forward to the the robot novelists that are going to right? They're going to. I'm sure they're going to be trashy novels written soon. Bye. Bye algorithms not. Hi, Brad narrative nonfiction. I think there's going to there's going to be the book the that's writing a book on prosecutorial reform. Did it? Yeah. They don't they also gonna take that big advance. Anyway. So listen to some Endel on Spotify. If you're in the mood, John what is your chatter? It's the end all Bill. Cooking that up for like minutes. I'll show my cell phone. Okay. So since tonight is in part in celebration of Emily Baz Lon. My chatter is amount of woman named and Royal since in Royal was the first journalist women journalists in Washington and sense Emily's my favorite journalists. I'm tell the story van Royal? Now. About in Royal. It was said that she was these are not things that are said about Emily. She was a holy terror and evil detestable public woman. Tara was okay. Maybe not detestable like you. She grew up in Pennsylvania, but grew up in the backwoods, Pennsylvania. She was she was abducted by Indians. She was abandoned by our family and abandoned by her government. Her greatest. Yes. Hair honesty. Well, exactly know what you're wishy born. Let's see roughly I'd in eighteen fifty four. She was born in seventeen eighty something. The first way I came to know, an Royal is she was the first woman to ever interview a president John Quincy Adams was supposedly skinny dipping in the Potomac and an Royal sat upon his clothing and said she would interview him until or the team must answer questions or she wouldn't let him have his clothing. This may or may not have been used by letting tried that.

"Health care system? The molar report is something that listen, I think it's really important for our democracy that we see the full text of the report, and we have called for that publicly. We have demanded it, you know, the chairman sent a letter we're hoping to hear back by next week on the second and it's critically important. Right. No one asks to see the bar. Some we want to see the Muller report. And like, let's move on. Right. The president said he's cool with it the let's just do it already. Right. But in terms of effort, my focus is on making sure. That we can't do what we promise which is lower healthcare prices, and I have been focusing on that every day since I've been here it's been two and a half months, and we're we're going to get it done is that the short version of how you make build a bridge between Democrats and Republicans you get those Republicans maybe in the Senate is Lamar Alexander and Susan Collins is the bridge to them lowering healthcare prices because it's not expanding coverage. Maybe you know, here's the thing. I think that folks just need to do their jobs, and like this whole idea that Mitch McConnell is going to unilaterally decide to not take up bills is something that I just you know, I really struggle with that. And he. Senators and he's up in twenty twenty. And so like, you know, those good folks in Kentucky, I think can assess, you know, his productivity along with every other member that they get to vote on so totally but he didn't let he didn't let Alexander Murray come up Collins Nelson. He's not letting come up he may not run again in twenty twenty especially if somebody retires from the court, and he can get another conservative on the court just to make your nightmares worse than roaming, people talk about it, really. Now, I'm just saying people talking about a lot of things. I guess my point is what you would dented the pressure point on him. What if that's removed? I'm just wondering the how do you build the bridge both your Republican colleagues, and then also that public pressure? I think the few things one we have to demand that the Senate act we have to demand it. And I think that a lot of people around the country have you know, sort of kicked back a little bit since the election and said, hey, we did it. We flipped the house. We've done our part, and you know in my community. I've seen a lot of people say, you know, I'm so glad Lawrence there. She shares my values and they go back to their regular lies, right and regular life is important, and I'm going to hold it down here. But we need our backup. And we need folks to continue to be engaged and the agenda can't move forward. If we don't have the folks mobilize to push it along. Let's that's nice. Surprise fan since the nicest. Yeah. Well, there's been so many surprises. I mean, I gotta tell you congress as a wild place. It's like totally a trip you guys. And like, honestly, I am surprised at every stage..

You know, a lot of people didn't think that we had a chance when I decided to run they were like, especially folks at home. This is what I'm talking about. They were like these people in DC seem to think that the fourteenth is gonna flip. Good luck. And we weren't really taken seriously. But I always knew that we deserve better. And we this election was about two things it was about healthcare as the number one issue. And it was about representation did the guy in the seat have our back in Washington. And was he going to show up for us at home, and the answer was no what what do you miss about being a nurse? I bet you a good nurse. Well, thank you. And I am. And obviously, we're seeing patients you're. Day must have just been totally different than it is. So I'm a public health nurse, which means that my practice area our communities and populations one of the things that I was so surprised by in the time that I was running was how similar the skill set is meaning that nursing school. We had to learn how to walk into a patient's room because you only have maybe three or four minutes to be able to establish trust look into their eyes. And let them know that the advice that we're giving is our best professional judgment. And that we are trying to help them recover and get well and live their best lives. Right. And I would do that every day on the campaign trail, right people. Come and they would share their vulnerability is their insecurities, and they will be asking for help. And they hoped their congresswoman or their congressmen would be able to help them, right? Like that is a really almost intimate exchange.

Eighteen sixty eight and other policy measures. Yeah. So I mean, here's the deal. No one at home asked me about more report. They don't they have not. I mean, that's just like not the topic conversation. I can't go anywhere in the Eleanor fourteenth. And not talk about healthcare.

"Price more Ford will and it covers an additional nine million people. So no one's paying more than eight and a half percent of their income on healthcare premiums. So not to be Debbie Downer here, but your your freshman democrat at the divided congress. The president will never sign that Bill. What what is it that? What is it that you can realistically accomplish as a legislator? What can what can the house do well in this environment where where it's going to be very difficult to get anything actually into law in actuality, David I just have to push back a little bit because that's near for. Plead this Bill. This Bill is part of a package as the House Democrats are focusing on delivering for the people, which means that this Bill will get marked up this. Mill Bill will get a floor vote that will pass the house by overwhelming margin. And I believe that the Senate will take it up because guess what the senators all know that the American people clearly spoke in November saying that they wanted their healthcare. And that there are really commonsense. Good policy ideas to to improve on the ACA that the Senate would I think welcome the opportunity to get a bipartisan win, welcome it. And then you know, what we get in this grey veto override scenario. And I think on healthcare we'll have the votes. This Bill is clearly an effort to improve upon about Macaire. Right. So what do you think of this broader strategy, which seems to be Nancy Pelosi's strategy? Rather than talk about replacing ObamaCare and our entire private health insurance industry to build on. What's here at a moment? When the presidential candidates running for the democratic field or calling for much more dramatic change with Medicare for all or Medicare for America. These plans that would do far more as opposed to bolstering the exchanges. So let's just level set. We're talking about twenty million people who have coverage thanks to the Affordable Care Act. We're talking about millions of Americans millions who have pre existing conditions who are now able to get healthcare coverage around the country. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act. We're talking about hundreds of millions of Americans who enjoy the benefits of preventive services. Those free screenings the free vaccines contraceptive coverage..

This is so hook me up, you guys, you all know, how to find me if you know, this guy who owns my domain name. So. Emily. Can you explain what happened this week with the latest court challenged the Affordable Care Act that can do that? So a bunch of Republican attorneys general argued that because congress because there is no longer attacks that the individual mandate is unconstitutional. And then a judge made a surprising ruling that that meant the entire Affordable Care Act had to fall every single bit of it. An unusual really because we have because judges have a principle of reading legislation and thinking about when part of it can be severed from another part. So there's like a whole system for figuring out. If one part of the law for some reason has to be struck down. How do you uphold the rest of it? This judicial ruling was really surprising. And what happened this week was that the Trump administration decided not to challenge that judge's ruling, even though. Oh, if that really goes into effect, the entire Affordable Care Act would fall. So congresswoman Underwood you come to us on a in a week of extraordinary news, but notably news about the Affordable Care Act. And you you're as a politician you've devoted a lot of your attention to healthcare you worked on healthcare and the Obama administration, you are a nurse. What do you make of the Trump administration's decision to try to completely invalidate the Affordable Care Act, and what is congressman do about that? Well, obviously, President Trump can't take a hit the American people spoke and force in November twenty eighteen saying that we want our healthcare. And you know, listen, he has a habit of trying to distract and trying to so confusion. But I think that this goes beyond that. And I hope that the American people are not going to sit by and let them take away our healthcare coverage we saved at once. We can save it again. And what we're doing in congress is that we are acting on day one on day one when we were sworn in. We voted to defend the Affordable Care Act when we had the department of Justice who refused to do. So in an unprecedented move to not defend in existing law on the books. The house is going to do that work, and we are now working to improve on the law. So I'm really excited yesterday. I introduced a Bill HR eighteen sixty eight which will allow more Americans to get access to the tax credits, which make premiums more affordable for those purchasing plans in the marketplace it would allow. Ten million people who currently do not qualify for tax credits because their income is just at that threshold to be eligible for some additional help and making their premium.

"But I think there's no question. I mean, certainly I saw this in Brooklyn that defense attorneys saw openings, and then they were like really taking it to the mat for clients. They felt like something was possible. The kind of offer that wouldn't have been before and they were making making arguments about public safety. So the main tactic that defense lawyers have honestly in this world is delay. Because the longer the case takes the more time everyone is spending on it. And also the more time your client has to prove. Selves, right. It's almost like in that it can last stretch out for a year or two. And if your client is getting a job and cleaning themselves up and doing well, it's much easier to make the argument that they don't need to go to jail. So Emily, just going back to your turnstile jumping examples so much was made in the nineties of the kind of broken windows theory of policing and prosecution, which is that you you want to reduce the level of low level chaos in the city, and that's going to overall make community safer. Does that turn out to be bullshit? Yes. That turns out to be basically bullshit. So the the best proof of what I just said is in New York. So when stop and frisk ended in New York, which was kind of combination of the broken windows approach to policing. You're talking about really nobody thought that crime wouldn't rise. Right. Even the people were like, this is terrible injustice, which it was there were all kinds of racial profiling and disproportionate policing of people of color like bad bad. Even the people who thought that was bad and worth ending thought. Oh, you know, what there's going to be a bump? No crime continued to decline in New York. So I think we have pretty good evidence at this point that when we put policing resources into solving violent crime like that's what brings down. Right. That's that's the most effective use of those resources. Unless David has another substantive question..

"I remember on that weekend. The times maybe I'm conflicting, but the times printed the whole thing in the in the newspaper. I think we will get the report. What does that mean? Does that mean forty-nine percent of the report does it mean? Eighty eight percent of the report, but not the good bits. And what does it mean to be good bits? And then, you know, Wenski report the good bits were really. E. Definition is. Here. I don't know. Think about baseball. So, but but what interests me is the? So we're it seems to me that the president landed somewhere between not exonerated and beyond a reasonable doubt on the obstruction question. Well, if the way that this properly should be handled is in the political realm in impeachment. You know, the standard for president should be something better than not exonerate mean. Not exonerate it. Right. And that's. And that's. And particularly because I've spent the last two months in Philadelphia in seventeen eighty seven. And thank you to our guys. Thank you to the the two whistle-stop listeners out there. But man when you read them all day long. It would be obvious what the response to this would be that the standard. I mean, look at the guy who was sitting at the front of the room, we didn't speak much, but George Washington was the model for the presidency throughout the whole four months. And the reason he was the model is because he had sublimated his self interest twice in big huge public ways. And so comparing that standard to the not exonerated standard is such a vast difference, and they created they literally created impeachment for this kind of thing. Now, they also created a system in which if the people who are closest to the people in the house. You know, can't do it. And with the Senate, then then that's fine. That's what the voters have chosen. But it seems to me, obviously, that's the that's the issue. And who knows if it will ever be brought up David since you reported so much on impeachment in the Clinton era. Do you think as a country we're better off without impeachment proceedings? Given how divided we are given the I suppose relative ambiguity of this obstruction charge as a criminal matter. At least I think we're better off without impeachment proceedings because it's clear for because the country has become so partisan that impeachment could not succeed in removing the president from office and therefore even though. Even though he in my mind is clearly committed high crimes and misdemeanors and his behaved and unethical ways, not necessarily Justin the Russia stuff. But in so many other ways, but I just I'm not sure that it is it is productive because the legislative branch abandoned its duties and legislative branch is not behaving honorably. I mean to me it is like like we have this situation where we have a Russian conspiracy to subvert American election. A very successful one. We had a president who lied at every turn about what his connections with Russia where he covered up business dealings. He had every associated hit as was lying or literally committing crimes around it. So behaved unethically, an immorally if not criminally clearly, and then has engaged in this extraordinary other variety of criminal activity or or unethical activity involving emoluments involving his highly corrupt cabinet. Involving the hiding of his tax returns. And so, of course, he he is should be subject to impeachment. But in political system that doesn't work..

"Not just like I spun this I feel like that would have been too far bridge for him to cross as a lawyer. So then we'll go walking down the speculative wrote a little bit more. Which is then there's probably some stuff in there. That's not up. You know, that's big that that would. Be. Yeah. Superbeets negligible. Right. Because one thing that's interesting in bars letter is he talks about the things that were not publicly known about obstruction. So since much of this played out in public, and we should get to that. What used to be norms after Watergate is Peter Baker wrote today like firing you're getting rid of your attorney general firing. You're up director, those norms are gone, but there's a lot that happened apparently behind that. We don't know about that presume lose in the report. So Emily do. What do you make of this question around obstruction where there's this legal standard that bar has outlined which under which he declares the president is not available to be to be charged with obstruction or accused of obstruction is that a reasonable legal standard that bars outlines they common legal standard is one that people generally agree on that. If you don't have an underlying crime, it's harder to prove obstruction. That makes sense to me harder to prove doesn't mean you can't prevent and prosecutors do sometimes bring -struction charges without clear proof of an underlying can I interrupt for one second one, which is that. There are underlying crimes. There's the Michael Cohen campaign finance crimes their crimes, which aren't necessarily related to know. Those those could be Trump's crimes true. But there Cranston aren't necessarily related to Russia, which Trump might still have been trying to obstruct in order to prevent that investigation from going forward that is a crime. Absolutely. And also you could choose to obstr-. Tuck Justice because you're trying to prevent other embarrassing information from coming out or investigations from happening. Right. I mean this relates to me to this question of we'll y was there all this lying to the FBI? If there was no underlying shenanigans, why did people lie so much? And you know, one reason is that there were other crimes that don't fit into this quite narrow definition of collusion on an actual agreement that Muller used according to bar. So that's one possibility is another as we were trying to prevent other things from getting out that you were worried about, and perhaps you succeeded, and that seems like a reason that you would want to charge obstruction of Justice. You know, we also don't know whether Muller imagined he was throwing all this to congress. Although if that was what he was doing than the fact that congress doesn't have the underlying report in its entirety or at the moment at all seems like a big problem. John, do you think we're going to get the report, do you think the American public is going to see the report? I mean, you you, and I all of us remember probably many of his room. Remember when the Lewinsky report came out that thing was out. I had read that poll thing within fifteen minutes of it being released to the public. And here we could be waiting months to see a very heavily redacted..

"That we also have on our tour here in Washington DC got to see the inside of the capitol building. And that is a wide variety of textures and colors and even down to looking at the rotunda where the different types of stone don't match I was part of the tour to guide was like you may notice that the stone doesn't match because they whitewashed it when they built it. How do you guys? Go about picking out which details are important to make sure you get right in which ones you're like. Well, the players probably just going to run by that hallway real quick. So let's focus on something else. Instead, exactly. That's a good question. Because people think when you recreating city one to one that you just copy everything. But of course, that wouldn't work. And you you really have to be careful and clever about how you style is the environment that you building you need to focus your budget on the things that metamorphosed as you say the the buildings alot here. There's more open sky so apart from a beautiful new cloud system. We're also looking at the silhouettes we create on those low lying buildings putting a lot of detailing there. And then as you say with with beautiful buildings like the capitol the national archives really beautiful buildings in coporate stone, different types of polish stone embedded polished brass embedded Letheren like all these materials that work. So well in in the kind of the lighting system that we have in Snowdrop, it's it's it was a really. Fortunate challenge for us to to try and recreate these these buildings these landmarks sounds like you guys are also limited in some of the things you could manipulate and some of the things you couldn't because I think things are protected here in DC where there any major challenges or do you see them more as creative challenges? You have a different creative challenges. But everything gets a legal poss- did the same in New York. It's not so different. I think from cinematic teams who wanna make a movie so I mean, one of the things that we do is we recreate the brands of DC. So these see itself has you know, it has a logo with the stars and stripes. We had to recreate this recruited the brands for the police security services. Firefighters FEMA CDC all that kind of thing we try and think of those brands from from head to tail so to speak so not not just how they look in a poster or something but from. Micro macro uses throughout the world. Are we trying to think of them properly as as a brand as he would if you making a brand? No that absolutely makes sense. I think is a challenge that sometimes gamers who are just booting up the game to play don't stop to think about the massive amount of work that goes on the other side to brings some of this iconic imagery into a game. And I always find it really fascinating. Hearing about these kind of behind the scene stories that go along to make something like the capitol building in the division to reality. So we one example would be we weren't able to recreate the world we'll to memorial that you see near the Washington Monument when you looking at towards Lincoln Memorial. But we created a different memorial there that has a similar feel and it happens to be an important site for the introduction to the second part of the game. Well, we won't we won't go into details about that. We'll keep it secret. I did want to bring up something that Britney asked Julian about when we were chatting with him having to do with the different neighborhoods, the areas inside of Washington DC that they spoke about in the presentation that we watched earlier and how each of these different districts has a specific purpose..
