"Well I'm Jake tapper governors across the nation are scrambling to secure tasks and supplies for the residents and their their health care professionals on Friday the governor of Illinois and slammed the trump administration's response saying quote every state is on their own and governor Pritzker compared the atmosphere to the wild west the democratic governor of Illinois JB Pritzker joins me now governor Pritzker good good to see you again so let's catch up our viewers with where Illinois is yesterday your state past ten thousand cases close to two hundred fifty deaths from corona virus your state health service reported that seventy percent of your I. C. U. beds are now occupied seventy percent the chief medical officer at cook county health in Chicago told CNN that quote by the end of the week if we have not made an impact the models suggest we will be overwhelmed how long you have until your healthcare system is just completely overrun well it depends on what model you believe but let me just say this that I think they zero in on the latter half of April's so we're really just less than two weeks away from the beginning of Peking we as you may know opened McCormick place that's our version of the Javits center better I would argue but it's our convention center in Chicago where we've got five hundred beds for less acuity patients that we can move from hospitals were covert positive into a new facility we're gonna have three thousand beds in that facility soon and they were adding perhaps another fifteen hundred around the state you said Tuesday then after you told the trump administration that your state needed four thousand ventilators vice president pence said that you actually needed one thousand four hundred ninety four thousand one thousand four hundred is one thousand four hundred gonna be enough for Illinois to survive the worst look I pray that the vice president was right but let me tell you what I think he got his numbers he looked at a university of Washington model that's out there that people are accessing to look at every state the problem with this and it's a very good model but except that the problem is they didn't put that model out there for research resource allocation reasons they if you look at the model there's a a central point which is where it shows that Illinois needs only fourteen hundred or fewer than fourteen hundred ventilators but there's also a worst case scenario which shows that we would need five or six or seven thousand more and so what we're looking at all of the numbers and everybody is taking an educated guess because we really don't know this virus is unpredictable so our guest is at this point that we need a few thousand more than we have now up to four thousand that's what we've asked the federal government for and over time they've given us four hundred and fifty total now we're looking everywhere and anywhere across the world to get ventilators here's the problem the president didn't enact or use the defense production act until just recently and he used it with GM right and with GM it when you talk to GM they'll tell you great we're gonna produce ventilators mostly in may and June that's great and we may need them in may and June I hope we don't but in the latter half of April when we think we might be peaking there are no ventilators available and in New York does not look like it will be coming off its peak by the time we're hitting peak so the idea of moving ventilators from New York to other places I pray to god that's true but right now it doesn't look like that will be true president trump said yesterday that everyone needed to quote stop playing this game with governors about allocating medical equipment from the federal government and then I want you to take a listen to what the president said on Friday about the trump administration's new line of argument about the federal stockpile of medical supplies and devices we have a federal stockpile and they've stayed stockpiles and frankly there were many of the states were totally unprepared for this so we had to go into the federal stockpile but we're not in ordering clerk they have to have for themselves what's your reaction governor well the president does not understand the word federal Federal Emergency Management Agency we have a state emergency management agency but if he were right why would we ever need a Federal Emergency Management Agency it's because individual states can't possibly do what the federal government can do we don't have a defense production act there's no way that we could stockpile in anticipation of a pandemic that no one anticipated and yet the federal government is responsible for doing precisely that and we now know that intelligence sources and all the best advice that was given was given in January and early February to the president and the White House and they seem not to have acted at all upon it if they had started in February building ventilators getting ready for this pandemic we would not have the problems that we have today and frankly very many fewer people would die there are eight states that have not yet enacted a stay at home order you were I think the second governor in the country to do so behind California governor Newsom but the the eight states include your neighbor I'll shares a border very long border with your state what's your message to the governor of Iowa what's your message to the eight governors that have not enacted stay home orders well look I I it's not for me to tell the governor of Iowa what to do where the governor Missouri they only put their stay at home in very recently and they're also big border state for us but I will say that it was the job of the federal government we are one nation here out there this virus knows no borders and so it was up to the federal government to begin with to to advise and to ask all the governors to put in stay at home orders those governors Republican governors would have done it much earlier if the president had suggested it much earlier they knew that at the federal level that that was the right thing to do you can hear it in the words from Dr Fauci who I've had many direct conversations with the doctor books they knew it but the president was apparently reluctant and we see what the results are today the president has said that this is not going to last all that long the Associated Press is now reporting that president trump believes that the NFL season will start on schedule September tenth with fans in the seats your fellow democratic governor Gavin Newsom of California said quote I'm not anticipating that happening in this state what do you think about Illinois will the bears VS Soldier Field will either be fans in the bleachers when the bears are great team whether they're playing or not but I will say this that it's not up to us we don't know that none of us really knows but what I do know is this that if the researchers were able to come up with a treatment something that will save lives something that will keep people off of ventilators maybe even keep them out of hospitals then that will be an enormous development for our country and for the future and it may allow us to begin to open things up in the way that the president is describing but the truth is that no one predicts now that we're gonna have that treatment anytime in the next few weeks or even in the next month and no one really knows of will have it by September what we do know is that if you have a vaccine that ultimately will help us deal with the problem because it's either going to be a treatment and herd immunity that ultimately allows us to open everything back up well it's a vaccine governor press your thank you so much good luck to please keep in touch with us about anything you might need to bring attention to it thanks Jake stay healthy thank you Sir Congress passed a bill to send many Americans a twelve hundred dollar check is there more I'm in the house majority whip congressman Jim Clyburn a South Carolina joins me now stay with us on C. span radio CNN's state of the union continues welcome back to state of the union I'm Jake tapper as millions of Americans wait for much needed financial help from the federal government house speaker Nancy Pelosi says Congress will be keeping a close eye on the trump administration's allocation of those funds with a new oversight committee chaired by the house majority whip Clyburn of South Carolina who joins me now majority whip Clyburn thanks so much for joining us president trump on Friday fired the intelligence community inspector general Michael Atkinson who of course was the one who informed Congress of the whistleblower complaint that ultimately led to the president's impeachment the president said it was his decision and he did not run it by Congress because he has both the absolute right to do what he did what's your response I think that that is one of the reasons speaker Pelosi decided it was necessary we in the United States Congress have oversight and we must perform oversight and we will do that to make sure that we save lives there we save taxpayer money and she was very smart I think to this committee after the German comento student back in nineteen forty one Truman said at the time he was a junior senator from Missouri at the time he looked back at what happened in the country after World War one and so that a hundred and sixteen different it is we're stood up investigate what was going on after World War one he said at the time he thought was much better you have one minute before the fact that that committee proved to be very very wise according to history this in less than one million dollars what say you fifteen billion dollars for the taxpayers yeah that's right to speak up hello this is trying to do here get out in front of this to protect the American people so that they can not only save lives but we can keep and the beers profiteering house garden we see that already we all recently said of mass he was seventy cents for he's not having to spend seven dollars four is that okay I think it is and that's what this committee is all about this is not about the president of the United States or even the independent counsel or inspector general of this is about focusing on how the money is spent well not the people who are getting the money are actually people will not be a profiteer this committee it will only be looking at how the money is being spent and whether or not private businesses out there are price gouging you're not going to look at all and at the federal response and why it took so long to get a federal response going that would have saved lives as governor governor Pritzker just put it my understanding is that this committee will be forward looking we're not going to be looking back on what the president may or may not have done that before this crisis yet the crisis is with us and people are now out of work it is okay I'm out of work the question is whether or not the money as appropriate it will go to support them and their families well not this money will end up in the pockets of a few profiteer is terrorist and that's what I understand we are to do with a pattern in this after the trump a minute and I spent the weekend looking deeply into the training committee and what happened since March one nineteen forty one when it was stood up and stood up for five years and what would be very very successful and I'm trying to base my work on this committee on the history that's found with the work of that you get it meanwhile in the Congress of course needs to continue to do its job perhaps pass even more stimulus funds continuing to legislate it's obviously very difficult for Congress to do so in the middle of a pandemic when there's so many concerns about people flying people traveling people congregating is it not is it not time on a temporary basis for the leaders of Congress to allow remote voting so you can continue to do your job without any of you putting your lives at risk you know people think it is time for.
"whip clyburn" Discussed on State of the Union with Jake Tapper
"To state of the Union. I'm Jake Tapper. As millions of Americans wait for much needed financial help from the Federal Government House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi says Congress will be keeping a close eye on the trump administration's allocation of those funds with a new oversight committee chaired by the House. Majority Whip James Clyburn South Carolina. Who joins me now? Majority Whip Clyburn. Thanks so much for joining us. President trump on Friday fired the intelligence community Inspector General Michael Atkinson. Who of course was the one who informed Congress of the whistle blower complaint that ultimately led to the president's impeachment? The president said it was his decision and he did not run it by Congress because he has the absolute right to do what he did. What's your response sponsor? Simply this I think that that is one of the reasons Speaker Pelosi decided. This committee was necessary. We in the United States Congress Have Oversight and we must perform that oversight and we will do that to make sure that we save lives are. They're we save taxpayer money and she was very smart. I think to patent this committee after the trimming committed stood up back in nineteen forty one. It's kind of interesting Eric. Sherman said at the time he was a junior senator from Missouri at the time he looked back and what happened in the country after World War One and so that a hundred and sixteen different committed were stood up to investigate what was going on after World War One. He said at the time ethos much better to have one committee before the fat and that committee proved to be very very wise. According to history is the committed spent less than one million dollars but save fifteen billion dollars for the tax payers. And that's what Speaker Pelosi trying to do here. Get out in front of this to protect the American people so that it could be not on their save lives we can keep fraud and abuse profiteering garden. We see that all read it. The governor of New York recently said that Masks that he was spending seven cents for these now having to spend seven dollars for. Is that pass a price gouging? I think it is and that's what this committee is all about. This is not about the president of the United States or even the independent counsel or the Inspector General is about focusing on how the money spent whether or not the people who are getting. The money are actually working on behalf of the American people or whatnot. They're profiteering so this committee will only be looking at how the money is being spent. And whether or not a private businesses out there price-gouging you're not gonNA look at all at the federal response and why it took so long to get a federal response going that would have saved. Lives this governor Pritzker. Just put it. My understanding. Is that this committee will be forward looking. We'RE NOT GOING TO BE LOOKING BACK. On what the president may or may not have done Back before this crisis hit the crisis is with us. The American people are now out of work millions of them out of work. The question is whether or not the money that's appropriate will go to support them and their families this a well. Not This money will end up in the pockets of a few profiteers tariffs and. That's what I understand. We are to do if we are pattern. And this after the minute and I spent the weekend Looking deeply into the Truman Committee and what happened since March one Eighteen forty one when it was stood up and stand up for five years and would be very very successful and I'm trying to base my work on this committee on the history. That's found with the work of that committee. Meanwhile the Congress of course needs to continue to do. Its job perhaps pass. Even more stimulus funds continuing to legislate. It's obviously very difficult for Congress to do so in the middle of a pandemic when there's so many concerns about people flying people travelling people congregating. Isn't it not? Is it not time on a temporary basis for the leaders of Congress to allow remote voting? So you can continue to do your job without any of you putting your lives at risk. Well you know a lot of people think that it is time for that and maybe it is. But here's what I know speaker. Pelosi has asked Jim McGovern chairs of our rules. Committee look at the Constitution. Look at our rules Look at the the rules under which we operate on the House floor and to see whether or not that is a way to go. I would much rather US respond to that issue after good study Jim. Mcgovern is a very good studied And Mick recognitions and then that's respond to that so I don't want to be Willy Nilly about this. I want us to make sure that whatever we do not be challenged. Us later on as having been unconstitutional or evaluation of our rooms. Let's make you get it right before the fact so we'll have to be spending a lotta time with a lot. Investigative Committees Looking back on what we did and maybe some of our actions that might have been as being constitutional and quickly surf. You could on a call last month. Lawmakers you said this was quote. This pandemic was quote tremendous opportunity to restructure things to Fit our vision. You've been criticized a lot by Republicans for saying that. What exactly did you mean by that I'm experiencing now. We are experiencing children out of school here in South Carolina I've there's a big article in this morning's local papers about children not being able to get educated because they're not online. That article is saying. We need to restructure our educational systems to accommodate something like this. We see the clothes in the rural hospitals for here in South Carolina. A state the other day that said eleven wrote hospitals have been closed. We need to restructure our healthcare delivery system so that these rural communities these low income communities in yet the goodness of this country that should be accessible and affordable for all. That's what I'm there and I would hope okay That the minimum Johnny in doing that. Majority Whip Jim Clyburn. Thank you so much stay healthy. Stay Safe Sir. We appreciate your time. Thank you very much have it. If I can take a moment I would like to speak directly to one person known to watch this show or at least clips of this show president trump Mr President. I know you like millions of Americans are eager to have the nation. Go back to some semblance of normal one of the questions. The American people need answered for that to happen responsibly. What's the plan? Is there a plan for widespread testing of every American so as to isolate the virus? The way other countries have done. When will there be enough tests for that to happen? How WILL THEY BE ADMINISTERED? Who will pay for the tests and the results who will notify us as to whether we've tested positive or not and what to do them? Is there a plan to make sure? Doctors and nurses and healthcare professionals finally are able to get the personal protective equipment or that they need. Those healthcare workers are quite literally dying while they try to protect our society and save lives. And they're they're begging for P. P. They don't need to be told that they're governors or their hospital. Directors are doing anything wrong by trying to get the supplies to protect their lives while they try to save our lives. They need to know that. There's a plan to get them the supplies. They need governors and mayors right now are literally bidding against each other and against the federal government to try to get these supplies. This is escalating the prices and causing confusion an unnecessary bidding competition. Is there a plan to stop that? What is it? What about ventilators New York City Mayor de Blasio said today would be the day his city could run out? Governor Edwards said his city or state could run out on Thursday. Is there a plan to expedite the manufacture of ventilators? It's still not clear whether you have fully utilized the Defense Production Act have you are any companies being compelled by the US government to make ventilators. And when will they be made? When can hospitals get them? What about the cotton masks that the CDC is now suggesting that we all wear when we leave our homes is somewhat manufacturing them? How can we get them? Is there a plan please? Mr President the American people. They need answers to these questions. They are less interested in your popularity on facebook. Thousands of Americans are in mourning their horrified. When you make leering allusions to your history with models while discussing projection models of mass American deaths attacking governors and mayors and journalists for asking questions that might please your fans..
Florida Rep. Val Demings on Her Biden Endorsement
"Over the last two years congresswoman. Val demings of Florida has had a front row seat to history. She serves on the House. Intelligence Committee the House Judiciary Committee and she was one of the seven house. Impeachment managers who argued for the conviction of President Trump. And now demings name is being bandied about as a possible vice presidential nominee is she. I totally forgot to ask her about her Harley but I did ask her about trump Florida her support of Joe Biden and yes whether she wanted to be considered for vice president here at all right now congresswoman bowel demings. Thank you very much. For being on the PODCAST. It's great to be with you. So let's just jump right on in you endorsed. Vice President Biden. You are from Florida can he carry Florida In November can a Democrat. Win Florida in November. I have no doubt that a Democrat can win Florida the numbers and Florida's support that But what we're facing assist a matter of turnout and so our job is to make sure that we turn Democratic voters out when we looked at Super Tuesday I think if we watched the voters and listen to the voters the voters are deciding and I thank on Super Tuesday. They were strong. They were powerful. I think they sent a clear message about who they believe can lead our country and move a democratic agenda forward. We saw every demographic turn out and as you know Florida's a very diverse state And I think if what has happened what happened on. Super Tuesday is any indication of what will happen to in Florida's primary. I think that we're going to be in really good shape. Now I'd sort of bounce ahead I did mention you. Endorse Vice President Biden. But there's still contest right now. There's a bird contest you know what what I just feel so hopeful about. We know what we have experienced the last three years almost four now and there is no way. American families can go through another four years of what we've seen And so you know when I look at the democratic feeling as you all know several of my colleagues were in that race what I knew and we heard it quite a bit but I believed it to be true is that anyone on the democratic side would be better than what we have and now we're basically down to two individuals who. I believe if you look at what they believe in what they fought for. Then certainly Will be in better shape. I just happen to believe that one of them Vice President Biden really is the want to carry the agenda forward and really Unify our country. Which is so desperately needed right now. How damaging was it or is it to Senator Sanders. The comments that came out from the the old video of him praising Fidel Castro and then even his defense of his comments about Fidel Castro again from a Florida Lens was that damaging to his effort. Well again you've listened to the people and I think the people and those who represent them spoke loudly and clearly and I won't certainly will not guess about what Senator Sanders Sarah what he meant to say but what I do know. Is that several people who live in our very diverse state. Were upset by those comments. And so you know we're in the middle of a race. We're going to let the let full radiance to But I think you know when you look at Vice President Biden. He has been in the trenches fighting for issues that we care about for a long time fighting for issues that before it was popular quite frankly to fight for them like marriage. Equality issues like climate control. Certainly he's been a unifier along the way and I love what Whip Clyburn said I think most of all he said we know Joe but more important Joe knows us and that's because he's been there fighting for those issues and building those relationships longtime he didn't wait until he decided to run for the most powerful position In the country and so. I think like I said I just. I go back to watch the voters I know. There's a lot of talk about the establishment. I quite frankly find that I am not quite sure what that means when voters turn out in. Great numbers We certainly know how the African American turnout was led by South Carolina I don't know what the establishment means but I certainly know what people go to the polls mean and we saw
"whip clyburn" Discussed on The Axe Files with David Axelrod
"Not publicly making that that line in the sand clear for me was would be inconsistent with the duty that I had and so what I set out to do the way that an and I think my colleagues wrote the bed with me would agree. But I'll speak for myself is I thought it was important to say. This is a turning point to communicate that very clearly with the people who I represent. This is a turning point. This is why it's turning point I don't know where this investigation will lead. But we have a duty at this point to have a dedicated focused investigation on these allegations because if these allegations are true than they are indeed impeachable and I didn't want to dance around it. I didn't want people to think. Oh well she thinks we should do an impeachment inquiry but maybe she's just not an area maybe she's this or that. I wanted to be very clear that it is the focus of these particular allegations that require the full strength of Congress to dig into these investigations and either prove or disprove them for for two reasons one if they are true we need to know because that's a an unthinkable thing which indeed is where it let us But if they're not true we also need to ensure that countries throughout the world know that that in fact our president wasn't willing to exchange more aid didn't want what about the third possibility where you prove. It's true and nothing happened. You know at the time at the time we thought through or I thought through that and talked about it with some of my colleagues. What happens if this is true and no one cares and I would argue? Perhaps a fourth option. Which is it's true people care but no one not enough people had the the strength or the courage to say you know this is in fact This is in fact a such a serious allegation. The facts prove it. They outline it yes. There should be a conviction meaning removing the president of the United States. Which has never been done before? Do you think the case was proven? I think it was. I think it was. Do you figure it was worth it to go through the exercise and personally. How much has it made your life more complicated as you seek reelection? Well I think I'll quote my parents on this. Which is it's always worth it to do. The right thing no matter how hard it is and so I believe we did the right thing. I believe I did the right thing. In the implications of that or how hard it was wasn't in the end didn't matter because it was the right thing. Have you heard about it in your town hall meetings? And what have you heard so You know I had a little bit of a rowdy town hall in the winter after we had entered the impeachment inquiry. There's a lot of folks who voted for the president in my district Who are still wholly aligned with him. Who Don't want to believe that he did anything wrong. And so You know it was a it was a challenge but it was a challenge to stand before them in a crowded auditorium and say this is why I did what I did. This is why I will vote to impeach the president. This is this is why I thought it was important that we even have a dedicated impeachment inquiry and I. I don't know how that will impact me in November twenty twenty. But I do know that I have been able to look at constituents right in the eyes and say you may not agree with this decision but let me please explain to you why I did it. And I want to believe and I hope it's true that the level of Transparency that I have provided in what my decision making process was the level of detail that I have gone into when discussing everything I did before making a decision reading through the reports. You know watching the testimony on TV reading through The written testimony and just into it in order to really be comfortable saying I had I had taken in every fact I could take. I had taken in every bit of information before voting to each and I want to believe that people will respect me for the way I went about making the decision. Yeah because you know the message from the other side was was a purely partisan exercise. You voted against. And you said you would when you ran. You voted against speaker. Pelosi a how do you think she has handled all of this? And it's she has certainly become the more polarized figure in all of this as she held this right way in are you. Is she a burden for you in this well and I? I'm I'm going to remind a little bit and also say we've actually voted prior to this impeachment inquiry. We had voted on a there was a a peach mint charged that came forward in the house and we voted. I voted to table that. I didn't think that it was worthy of vote. In the one hundred Fifteenth Congress I think Such votes came up twice so people who say like this is just. This was their intent from day. One I think miss the fact that there were three prior efforts and the majority of House. Democrats even voted it down now as it relates to The speakers work. You know I don't envy the position that she's been in. I think it's been A significant challenge because she had members of the Democratic Caucus who did want to impeach the president of the mall for a long time. As as early as you know maybe even Back to when he was first sworn in and then there were members of the caucus who were opposed to it. As as I was for such a long time what I have appreciated about the way that she handled it was she. Did Not endeavoured influence anyone and even once we were in an impeachment inquiry even when the impeachment vote was coming she and majority leader Hoyer Whip Clyburn would explicitly say that we will not whip on this vote we will not influence people on this vote and you vote your conscience And I think that's an important thing because you know frequently on other bills all we really want to make sure everybody's aligned on this and you know they'll they'll try and Other members of the caucus and it happens on both sides of the aisle. They'll sort of you know harangue. Yeah Hey hey with us on this. Vote with us on this but on this one there wasn't even a people that Which I think is an important thing to say because I I think that's it might be hard to believe. But in fact it's absolutely the truth you talk about disputes with the Republicans but within your own caucus you have come under fire from some of the more progressive members you voted for a Senate immigration authorization of spending for the border. That was less than a house. Bill that was passed in terms of some of the humanitarian aid. That was included. One of your colleagues called you the Child Abuse Caucus those members who voted for it..

Anton done one of the best communicators and the Democratic Party. Maybe next time round. Maybe you think about rediker for all the WHO goes beep and who's going to be vice president but before we go. I want to pick up somebody. That's in our audience here and his name is Eugene Soul. He's sitting behind me. I WanNa see we can zoom in on him right here. Eugene's nephew and Robert and Asia curtain nephew at Nissan came up to me and said they wanted to honor him. They wanted everybody to know Mr Soul because he's been great for his family. He's done everything for them. He's made sure that the family stay together. He's lifted up the people around him.

"Up with house. Majority I to give the honorific that we don't we don't representative on the net at this point so so so whip clyburn. You endorsed Mr Brian. He is leading in the polls. Here he is the favourite among just polling around. Just the people sitting even in this restaurant. But I think there's a Lotta doubt in a lot of people. Outside of South Carolina that he can actually get the nomination because he has appeared weaker than a lot of people expected versus Bernie Sanders. Can you diagnose as a veteran politician? What is what's been the challenge? This thank you so much to be here today. And thanks for being here with these people and for a long time The big challenges is people tend to mistake. Goodness for weakness. You know Joe Is just a good guy I came into government John West and I remember way back in nineteen seventy and that's for people were saying he's just too good to be here. People expect for you in this arena to always be fighting always be yelling and always going after the other guy and we got into the race. He made clear that I do not wish to have a contest by fellow. Democrats I WANNA keep my focus on trump. That proved to be a mistake because everybody saw him being tied with him not responding and all of a sudden he's week well. I've suffer from the same thing. I just love politics and look to camp. I just don't feel the name calling. Is this what you ought to be doing well to sustain on missile? I've worked in four an outside campaign that watched the John Kerry phenomenon happened the rise and fall and and if you look back at the history of candidates who've been able to win Democrats it's really been more progressive candidates who've been successful. Obviously Barack Obama who a lot of people thought you know. A black candidate can't win. He won he was to the left of Hillary Clinton John Kerry was thought to be the answer in a year. What Howard Dean scared? The the establishment of the Democratic Party. They didn't want him and went with Kerry and he didn't work on the Republican side. You think of a Bob Dole interest model doesn't always work. It's a Reagan Model. That works on the right. It's a bottle model that works for the Democrats. So why why would that not be true this year because George McGovern maybe you? That's he was very progressive agree. Remember me heaven with my good friend. Jesse Jackson Senior All of the the Black Caucus this is we gotta get. This is the progressive. He's got well. They won that battle and he won one. St The fact of the matter is I'll party basically is center left this is. This is not a extreme left-wing potted. And if we're going to win you're going to have to be able to attract people to you from more than one corner of the Earth and so we've lost a lot of elections because we tended not to focus on the fact that the closer you state to the center. Hopefully left-of-centre react camp out. I'm not going too far left and I'm going nowhere right I'm really want to stay focus To the center you mentioned Reverend Jackson and you know when when Reverend Jackson ran for president in eighty four and eighty eight his platform was basically the platform Bernie Sanders is running on now and it and it was similar to some of the things even meant that you heard the king calling for that you heard. Adrienne talking about universal basic income universal healthcare those are platforms that for a lot of young Democrats. That is what they want because they're struggling financially and they want to see a wholesale change in the country that means that they can afford to out of their parents homes. They can afford to have healthcare without being on thanks to obamacare being able to stay on their parent's health. You Two thousand six hundred twenty seven and they're out of luck so I think there is a lot of desperation a lot of anger. That's fueling Bernie Sanders. You've been very critical of the sanders campaign. You essentially intimated that you think that he would not only lose that he would. He would destroy the down. Ballot is that is that a fair assessment of him. There's I have never been very critical of in about it and that's my point if I stick out a difference with you on politics it doesn't mean I'm critical view. It simply means view this differently. I believe in the affordable care act. I believe in incremental steps being taken. I have been around when we tried to pass this nine hundred. Sixty four in the bill pass. We had to take housing out of it. We have to take Voting out of it and we got the civil rights. We outlawed discrimination in employment in the private sector. We didn't outlaw discrimination employment in the public sector until eight years later in nineteen seventy two. Yeah but my point. Is You go step by step by step. And that's my opponent is GonNa get me some Medicare for all it ain't GonNa Happen tomorrow morning. What we're going to have to do is tick people through a process yet. Used to one thing we got for the Care Act. Let's get the public option. Unless do it incrementally so.

"From NPR and WBZ. You Are Peter o'dowd Im Tanya Moseley. It's here now am broadcasting today from South Carolina Public Radio and Columbia. Tomorrow voters throughout the state will head to the polls to cast their ballots in the first in the south primary which will be a critical test of black support for candidates. A new poll from monmouth university puts former vice president. Joe Biden in the lead with thirty six percent of voters followed by sixteen percent for Senator Bernie Sanders and billionaire. Tom Steinmeyer polling at fifteen percent. The other candidates don't break double digits and they're nowhere near the fifteen percent threshold for earning delegates. South Carolina has fifty four pledged. Delegates up for grabs. Let's talk more about this with our reporter. Roundtable may is national politics reporter for the Associated Press and NPR's Juana Summers also joins us in studio welcome to hear. Now ladies good to be with you thank you well. Let's talk about Biden. I of course. This poll is not necessarily surprising. We know he has a long history With South Carolina. Is that a good indicator of how well he'll do on Saturday. What do you think Wanna? I think it is a great indicator we just saw former vice president biden. Pick up a key endorsement here from South Carolina's own Jim Clyburn who has seen as a kingmaker in the state. I've been on the road with a number of candidates over the last few days and I've been surprised by how many people were either waiting to hear what Jim Clyburn would say or after the endorsement happened. Were saying that it was actually something that was figuring into how they make their decision. Awada voters here still figuring out what who they'll support though we're just today yeah. I was surprised by that to a lot of voters that we spoke with said the same thing meg I mean. Do you feel that there needs to be this big enough lead? How much would biden have to Lead in this primary in order to propel him into Super Tuesday members of his team and people in his orbit who may not necessarily be on the campaign itself or telling me they really want to see a strong double digit victory on Saturday. It's not that they're necessarily worried that Bhai isn't going to win but they see if he has a two digit win that gives him the strength that he's going to need to get these. Super Tuesday contests strongly. His candidacy has been you know kind of having an issue over the past couple of contest but South Carolina is a place where he feels very comfortable and if he comes out of Saturday with something in the ten to fifteen percent range. That's what they tell me they feel is going to be a good standing for him to go into Tuesday someone else. Who's doing pretty well here in South Carolina? Is Tom Steiner? We spoke with him yesterday. He's coming in third in this poll. I asked why he so focused on South Carolina. Let's play south. Carolina is a state which reflects the diversity of the Democratic Party. It has a heavy proportion of African American voters. It's got a lot of Latino voters. The Democratic Party is a big tent with a lot of racial and ethnic diversity. WanNa we know that. He spent a lot of money and this state. He's really kind of putting all his eggs in this state. Are you surprised by how well he's polling with black voters? I actually not surprised Megan. I have both spent a lot of time here on the road with Tom. Steyer has been coming to the state not for weeks and months but for years forging connections with black voters. Lot Of folks that I spoke to. I've been following him all week have known him from his work with me to impeach the advocacy group. You want from next-gen America. So he was a familiar figure here but it's not it shouldn't be lost on folks. He has spent seventeen million dollars on broadcast ads here everybody. I've talked to has gotten a Tom. Steiner mailer some people say they are getting them every day he making an aggressive place specifically for black voters here and knows how important they are yet. You know We also talked with Congressman Jim Clyburn earlier this week. One thing that he talked about with us that he was concerned about though is something that he thinks about regarding the fracturing of the democratic so while Biden might be doing well here and he may do well tomorrow overall thinking about how maybe Bernie Sanders will do and some of the other states has some really concerned. Let's listen. I know how this country will react to certain people and I may be wrong about this. But if he were to get the nomination Senator Sanders. I hope I'm wrong. I just don't think and mega to add a little more context to that. He referenced many times what happened in nineteen seventy two with the presidential contest between Richard Nixon and George McGovern and in the end McGovern one. One St Do you see the similarities here. I think that what we're hearing from majority whip clyburn is something that a lot of figures within the establishment. Part of the Democratic Party are voicing and I think what he's worried about what some of them are two is the down ballot implications that a top of the ticket Bernie Sanders fixture could have. He's thinking about house races. He's thinking about Senate races. He's thinking about that overall balance of power in Washington. That right now is tending. Gop but they would really like to see some resurgence within the Democratic Party. So I think that that is a concern that I am hearing from people. I think one thing to consider here in South Carolina this is a place where Bernie Sanders is also incredibly well known and you know. He obviously campaigned in two thousand sixteen. But he's also maintained somewhat of an infrastructure here. Our Revolution has continued to be active in the absence of his campaign so while we may not see him come with victory on Saturday. That may very well go to. Joe Biden a strong standing a strong finish by Bernie Sanders. He's obviously got some other wins under his belt already. That's going to give him strength going into Super Tuesday and we're gonNA continue to hear people like Jim. Clyburn saying what he told you. We're also expecting to see president trump. Here he will hold a rally in North Charleston today ahead of tomorrow's primary. He did the same in Las Vegas the day before. The Nevada caucuses South Carolina. We're talking a lot about the Democratic primary but it's a very red state And there there's a contingent of folks called the operation chaos group who have said they plan to vote for Bernie Sanders to manipulate. What comes out of here Wanted do you think that they will be successful in that? I think that in order for them to be successful they would have to be a whole lot of them if things go the way of the polls where. Joe Biden has a double digit lead. Right now it would take a lot of folks to come in and do that to muck with the primary process to elevate Bernie Sanders. But I cheer point. This is an incredibly red state. And I've talked to some voters here who make the point that for them. The economy looks good. The president is very popular. Why should they consider any of these morons Okay let's talk a little bit more about Super Tuesday which is just days away. A new poll from UC Berkeley fines. Senator Bernie Sanders is taking a commanding lead against his nearest rival by two to one in California and then there's also this wbu are pull out of Massachusetts that shows Sanders in the lead with twenty five percent of the vote and senator warned trailing just seventeen percent in her own state. How much do you think Senator? Sanders dominance in some of those Super Tuesday states and California specifically will impact the overall race for this nomination. Make California as we well know is a very delegate rich place so whoever comes away from California with a big victory is going to have a lot of delegate numbers to back them up so while we've seen these other early voting contests happen South Carolina's GonNa do whatever South Carolina's GonNa do tomorrow. But I think that once we get through to Super Tuesday in all of these campaigns that are doing delegate math and really looking at how that all shapes up in terms of who gets the nomination we very well could be seeing some strength coming in from Bernie Sanders who even here in South Carolina. A place where most people do not expect him to win has been having massive rallies with thousands of people. And we're most certainly going to see those continuing to happen. WanNa you're shaking your head. Yes I am We we're GONNA see a third of the delegates on Super Tuesday so California's a huge springboard. The theory of the case from the Sanders campaign and those in his orbit that I've spoken to if they do well in South Carolina or do well South Carolina go into Super Tuesday. Do very well in California. The math will be on their side and with so many moderate candidates who are vying to stop Bernie Sanders. They'll split the delegates and his advantage will be almost numerically. Unstoppable I want to ask you about Elizabeth Warren something that we just learned that an unknown Super Pac supporting warren is making a nine million dollar ad buy in California Texas and Massachusetts allstate's voting on next Tuesday as we've been talking about She's also a candidate who was criticized other candidates for getting help from Super Pacs How does she level with this? I WanNa know your thoughts WanNa. I think we've seen in the last couple of minutes as well that she is now calling on that Super Pac to release the names of its donors after coming under some criticism for seeming to have changed her mind changed course on this. It's not clear to me whether it's repack will actually do so. My Bet is no. I don't have my phone in front of me but I do think this is something that a number of her rivals. Should she continue on in the race? Should she continue to do well? They're going to start pointing to because she did throw down the challenge of saying none of us should be taking this money and now the none of us should be getting the support of this money. Even they cannot technically direct that those funds but now she is benefiting from a system that she herself criticized meg. I would absolutely agree with that. It's GonNa be very tough if the super PAC doesn't agree to release that information. It's going to make a very difficult situation for Senator Warren. Given how adamant she was particularly in the very early portions of this contest. How there needs to be transparency? How fundraisers need to be open. I think we all remember the wind cave moment. That happened debate. So that is going to put her in a tough spot but she also has to be cognizant of the fact that at this point looks like she could probably use that help that's NPR's Juana Summers and Canard. I know both of you all have a very busy.

S. you know I don't see what they can to be Frank you know you're seeing the CDC advice come out in the CDC advises the same advice to give you every clue season right wash your hands you know go to a doctor if you have a high fever and respiratory problems and so on if it becomes endemic that no it's just part of the normal you know winter flu season or winter cold season actually because of the corona virus and if it's a major pandemic of the sort where we've got hundreds of millions of people dying in the world there's also not much we can do you know we don't have enough antiviral drugs or respirators to treat the majority of the people women for the virus will be what it's going to do you know there's there could you can do some public health things but you know not very much most of this depends on the virus Erin I just real quick here thirty seconds says the former chief risk manager at a Q.

"An attorney, and a Commissioner of the national African Americans. Reparation commission Nkechi. Thank you so much for being with us. Thanks so much. Now we turn to another voice on reparations and the hearing today on Capitol Hill Representative James Clyburn, a South Carolina, democrat, and the house majority whip Clyburn joined us on the show on Monday to talk about the national political response to white supremacy since the church shooting in Charleston for years ago. But he stuck around after that conversation to talk to me about today's hearings in the house on reparations and I asked him what he hoped will come out of the hearing, and the national dialogue around the topic. Let's take a listen. This here and will focus on reparations in this broad term affected. The reason we keep losing this discussion is because we will not treat reparations at that make it should be treated as a former teacher of history. And I continue to be as student of history. We look at this issue started with the root word reparations from the word repair. What should we do to repair the problems that have come out of slavery? And I think that you make the mistake of allowing these discussions to be monetize cringe, every time I heard people talk about reparations in terms of yet, in a check fit you, the Termine that kind of value, and who can you determine what about the people who? Twenty five percent black descendants of slavery, as opposed people will present who is fifty percent. You cannot monetize us, but you can't put programs in prior in place to deal with the institutions. The XP see us were foams reparations we've allowed over the years. We care out this for these HPC's to be undercut under funded and it's taking place right here in South Carolina as well. So what we need to do is talk about reparations in the broad sense and what we can do as a government to make man's. That's what represents all be about to make a man's for slavery. Not to monetize slavery or to determine who gets check as a sliver. But how do we make amends to people of color to the senate's of slaves and do the institutions that are in place to the? Yup. Overcome the vestiges of that sliver. There are folks that say that slavery was an economic benefit for whites and has created, essentially the bedrock for what we see today as the racial wealth gap, where white Americans have ten to thirteen times, the overall wealth that black Americans. Do how do we not make reparations economic conversation? Congressman. Did not say we don't make an economic conversation is an economic conversation should be should not monetize it. That's a difference. If you people if you put money into these HVAC us, if you pick up my ten twenty thirty plan that Bernie Sanders talks about a lot mandating that at least ten percent of all money should go into these communities, that have been made stressful as a result of, of the vestiges of slavery. That's how it is an economic situation. And we all the treat it as an economic situation. We ought to pump money into these communities, build them up into these institutions build them, because you are never going to win. The argument is just like nineteen fifty four Brown. We were told into the sending the bricks that separate but equal always be an argument. So don't try to carry determine what is separate and what is equal. Let's open the frontal attack on segregation. That's how running around decision. So what I'm saying is, let's not try to monetize this. That's open the frontal attack on this whole issue, reparations, and be very broad. And everybody who wants to go to these HVAC us. We'll get the benefit of education. I got a pretty good woman. I can't do that because they were not undercutting the school not on the funding to school as they're doing now. They're doing it carried out this argument. And we'll lose in this issue because we would not broaden the discussion of reparation. That was congressman James Clyburn, democrat of South Carolina talking about the best way to proceed with the national discussion over slavery reparations.

"On C span radio. WCS PFM Washington. Congressman Gerry Connolly is our guest on newsmakers this week in six term in the house of representatives Virginia eleven which is Fairfax county and the Washington metro area. He is a member of the foreign affairs committee in the house of representatives and also oversight and government reform tearing it subcommittee on government operations. Thanks for being our guest to be with you. We have two reporters who cover. Congress will be asking the questions of congressman Connelly Sheryl gay Stolberg, New York Times and Sarah ferris of politico and show you up. I. Okay. Well, congressman thank you. You are on the government. Actually, it's now called the oversight committee. No government, no longer government oversight and reform and the committee has just asked President Trump for ten years of his financial records. So what do you expect to see in those records? And what are you looking for this is I think a follow up to the public era? We have with Michael Cohen, the president's personal attorney in which Cohen testified under oath that the president falsified records financial records in order to qualify for loans and other kinds of financing that he inflated the value of his properties. And we just saw yesterday a story in the Washington Post that corroborates that and documented by the also underestimated the value of properties for tax purposes in the state of New York and elsewhere. So this is a follow up to that testimony. Just how bad was that and work frankly laws via? Related. So why do you think this is relevant because this is conduct that presumably occurred before he became president. Well, this is a president who has not put his assets in a blind trust as was recommended. He continues through his family to run the Trump organization. He continues to draw profits from various elements of the Trump organization golf courses hotel properties apartment buildings with his name on it. And so I think it's very relevant. He continues to benefit from that that enterprise. Given the report that you mentioned in the Washington Post. It does have documents that appear to corroborate corroborate the idea that he that the president did inflate his net worth. What is the next step from there? I imagine you'll be seeking those same documents of what happens next after that. I think it depends on what we find. So as the Washington Post story documents we have two separate promotional, brochures in which he exaggerated his net worth and the value of properties. Even to the point where he he actually added ten stories to the Trump Tower, which is a strange thing to do because presumably can look up and count. You know, it's not sixty eight stories it's fifty eight nonetheless, he printed, sixty eight that is distasteful and dishonest. Dan. You know, a marketing practice that is false. It may not however violate a law on the other hand if you provided formal documents to a financial institution. To justify huge financing for his enterprise that then can cross the line into Bank fraud. And so we want to know. What happened? What did you do given? The fact we don't have his tax returns. I don't think we have any alternative, but to see the beach documents. And frankly, if he if we think that a law may have been violated, hopefully, we will refer that to officials in New York state, and are there other parts of Michael Collins testimony from a few weeks ago that you are pursuing other leads from there was as, you know, a lot of testimony involving rather obscure figure who however has been with the Trump organization for something like forty years. He's the chief financial officer for the Trump organization, and he he I think has the the key to the lock box. And so he his testimony definitely will be something that will be sought. So we've had a lot of talk about impeachment in the wake of the Muller report. And speaker Pelosi has said now is not the time. But I'm wondering if you think. This inquiry that you're conducting might possibly lead to articles of impeachment. We can always speculate. I just think we need to put that discussion aside. That's not what were you know? That's not what's driving this. We are deeply concerned and have been since before the president was inaugurated with issues of conflict of interest, and the emoluments clause the conflicts of interest are not only about the financial practices here in the United States. But they are about. Entangling relationships overseas. So here's properties, for example, in the Philippines. The autocratic president of the Philippines. A named right after Donald Trump was elected Donald Trump's business partner in the Philippines as a special envoy to the United States. What could go wrong with that? We know that despite what the president said he according to Michael Cohen continued to pursue the possibility of building Trump Tower in Moscow. You know during the campaign he didn't put an on ice as he said he did. And again, could that have influenced how he views lot Amir Putin. And the statements he made about Russia and the rejection that he engaged in in terms of his own intelligence community with respect to Russian interference in the election. Those are all very relevant topic. So this isn't some narrow Gotcha investigation. This is a much broader look at this picture and trying to fill in lots of blanks. So here's a yes or no question if you find that he violated the emoluments clause is that an impeachable offense. Yes. It's an impeachable event. It's a different question how and when and will congress pursue impeachment? If that's the sole issue in front of us. It is concerning because amount of is a matter of the constitution. Not a matter of New York statute, it was written by our founders. I think in some ways to deal with situations such as the one we faced with Don Trump. So with all of these investigations going on not just on the oversight committee, but the other five committees that have some role in investigating the president the public opinion public opinion right now is hearing from President Trump say he was exonerated saying that he was declared completely free by the mobile report. Of course, we haven't seen that full report. But are you concerned that that if Democrats continue to pursue these investigations full force that there will be some in the public who see it as overreaching who see Democrats is grasping for straws. And how do you prevent that? Sure. I don't want to be pursuing these issues and have the public think, it's you know. A fishing expedition on the other hand, I took an oath when I got elected to defend the protects constitution that states not to protect the president of the United States, not to protect my party or public opinion. And I have a constitutional obligation to pursue these matters and the gravity they represent. Let's take a where we are right now. I think the media is guilty, frankly of very breathlessly deciding that this is over why you're doing it. This is overreach. Come on. It's over all based on a four page summary of what we now know as a three hundred page plus report. The idea that there's no collusion. Well, what he what apparently he concluded is there was no criminal conspiracy with the Trump campaign to collude actively with the Russians that isn't the same as saying there wasn't some collusion that isn't the same as saying that wasn't lots of contact and lots of receptivity Russian overtures to provide a teleconference we know that there were contacts involving WikiLeaks. We know that there was that meeting of the Trump Tower with Russian operatives who claim to have on Hillary Clinton. We know that there were at least seventeen campaign or administration officials who had over one hundred contacts with Russia, and they lied about it. Let's not forget the reason. Robert Muller was appointed was because the attorney general at that time. Jeff Sessions did not tell the truth in his confirmation hearing as general about his own Russian contacts. And therefore he was required by DOJ procedures to recuse himself from the entire Russia investigation. So I think there's lots more to learn and think if you look at polling data the more that sets in more people realize this is a four page summary. And by the way, written by Robert Muller written by the attorney general an appointee of Donald Trump somebody who wrote a memo questioning the underpinnings of the investigation not a disinterested party. So there are some in your party that that been house majority whip Clyburn said it's time to move on after seeing that summary, there are some members who say they want to get on the agenda, especially those who won districts that had been won by the president. There are many people. Loyal to to him in that in their districts. They wanna get going on healthcare. They wanna get going on the agenda. How do you how do you balance that? Well, frankly, we've been working in the gender since we took over on January third, and and that that's not gonna stop. And I think I suppose there's a silver lining in this four page summary in that it moves that agenda to the front burner and move some of these investigations from a public perspective point of view to the back burner, but still very much similar. My view is we can walk and chew gum at the same time. We can do both, and we will democratic congressman Gerald Connelly on C Span's newsmakers. So that's a great lead into the agenda. I wanted to turn your attention to healthcare. We've just come off a week in which healthcare made a lot of news. The Democrats introduced you introduced your plan to lower premium costs and protect people with preexisting conditions. But Democrats are very divided over healthcare. You've got one hundred members plus a number of presidential candidates who have signed onto Medicare for all single payer government plan. How likely is it that we will see Medicare for all past this house? You know, I think we have to distinguish between pragmatic programs that can be implemented and aspirational goals toward which we we move. I think Medicare. For all is in a lot of category right now. It hasn't been flushed out. It hasn't been costed. We don't know the implications in terms of the health insurance industry. We don't have I think clarity to provide the hundred and eighty million Americans who've received their health coverage through private insurance, a largely their employers so Medicare for all remains an aspirational goal for a lot of my colleagues. I'm going to spend my time defending and improving the Affordable Care Act. I voted for that. When I was a freshman in congress. Bent buckets of political blood defending it, and I I haven't given up on that at all and for my point of view, despite all of the attempts to derail it by the Trump administration by my friends in the other side of the I'll in fact, it's working it has expanded coverage for tens of millions of people through Medicaid answer the exchanges over all the health care cost. Curve is coming down. We have protected consumers in terms of lots of reforms chief among which is banning making it illegal for insurance companies to deny coverage based on a pre existing condition. We saw how resident that issue alone was in the last elections in the midterms. And so that's a very important issue for us. And frankly, we're very grateful for Donald Trump this week deciding to challenge the entire Affordable Care Act in court yet again that that that's an a winning argument for us. So I was gonna ask you about that. Can congress intervene in that lawsuit in any way? And is there any plan for you to do? So I don't know that we have discussed yet. Following an Amigas brief. But yeah, there's a vehicle clearly for congress to be heard, and hopefully we will be. Briefed should be filed. I do especially given the fact that the Trump has directed. His department of Justice to enter into that litigation on the side of repealing the entire act at the halfway point with Republicans resurrecting their attacks on ObamaCare. Of course, that's an issue that Democrats wave helped them win back the house in the midterms is an issue you feel confidently talking about. But there's also a lot of pressure to come up with legislation to strengthen the existing lot to address some of the gaps. How do you do that? With a Republican controlled Senate, a White House intent on dismantling it. But of course, you're going to have to come up with this sort of bipartisan legislation..

"What else we need to censor? Someone and clever is like yes, but many years from now, and it's not just Clyburn. It's the democratic leadership overall many years from now if the Republicans ever regain the house, they made also censure us how. So what is there can Steve king say anything? He wants Ken Ken, do Republicans do anything they want and get away with it. And and the Democrats have to just keep putting themselves in the face is. So irrational, it's mind boggling, so I want to go to Representative Clyburn. This is a video after Steve king made his comments, and he gives you a sense of where a Clyburn was coming from. When he wanted to block, the the censure of king, take a look. Advocated putting that on the floor just yet. Is that? Okay. Well, the problem I've got is. He was not on the house for with emitted these comments, he was not acting on behalf of the house of representatives. He was talking to reporters at the New York Times. And so are the with us to be very careful about whether or not we stepping across the line and trying to censor. I would say constrain speech. So in essence house majority whip Clyburn who introduced the disapproval resolution noted that king made his statements to the news media, not during a house not during house proceedings say exact thing for real hot, Omar. So he's concerned about Republicans freedom of speech, but not so much about Democrats. So that's look in the old days. They'd have done this almost no one on TV would have covered it. They just steamrolled their opponents have moved on these are not the old days. So now, they moved. Okay. Omar's name is definitely out. They added his Lama phobia. Okay. I guess what you care about that. Okay. And we're trying to you know, help people out, but look do in here on the substance of it do lobbyists matter on drug companies oil companies banks. Yes and our eight yes. On the issue of Israel, do the people lobbying for Israel their packs, including APEC does that matter. Of course, why would it magically not matter OE, former lobbyist matter, but a pack lobbyist? Don't matter that doesn't make any sense. Of course, they matter. So and they're incredibly powerful. We had Ari Berman on the show longtime ago, he did a wonderful piece about how the NRA an eight-pack have very similar tactics. So a long time ago, and he explained that they use very similar ways of corralling politicians do what they want because they're lobbyists. That's what they're they're a pact. That's what they're supposed to do. Okay, antisemitic. Is that what you're saying? I'm sure of course, it so it goes on and on right? So so in this case. If you're questioning that stuff they would normally seem early. But now that you can't get steamrolled. And so now, we got people fighting back, and so they took the name out. They added Islamaphobia. Now, they moved the vote Thursday. They might move it. Again, it's not entirely clear because they got caught they got caught trying to intimidate people. And which leads me to very important question. Did they ask her to in any way? Not. I mean, I would imagine they're not stupid enough to ask her to quote, unquote, pledge allegiance to Israel in order to be on the foreign affairs committee, but they ask for defacto pledge. Did they imply heavily imply that she needs that they have concerns about her stance on Israel in order to get onto the foreign affairs committee. If they did then her complaint is literal. I don't want to do a dual pledge I'm pledged to the United States of America, and that would be a much bigger problem. And that'd be on democratic leadership and not on L Han, Omar. So that's a good question and people should ask that we're going to take a break. But when we come back, we're staying on this story because there's an important angle to cover and that has to do with Republican hypocrisy on this very issue..

"Five partisan agreement has been reached in principle by two goals from Republicans and Democrats in the house and Senate from the appropriations committees of those both the house the Senate and both parties to avert a government shutdown that would have to get to the president's desk before Friday at midnight. There are ways if you need to extend funding for twenty four hours you can do that without having to face a shutdown. We don't know entirely. What is in this deal? We do know that the funding for new border wall is there. So there's funding for new border, walls, or whatever you wanna call them. They call it Bollard Fizi. That's the big steel slats fifty-five miles of that the president could accept this. And then along with it say if you don't fund it when we're done with those fifty five miles. I'm going to go here for more money will explain that to you as well. Certainly he could reject this and say this again, it's not I wouldn't sign this. I'm not going to sign this. We want to get your thoughts on it. One eight hundred six eight four thirty one to this people are calling in on that. I have to update you on on congressman Omar's hypocrisy and her doubling down really of her antisemitic remarks. I'll explain that here. You know, she said all about the bid Jamin, so why is American politicians support Israel, and she used that antisemitic trope it's all about Jewish money, and she doubled down on that did not apologize on her own which she had the opportunity to. So she got condemned by the democrat leadership who called her to apologize. Here's the condom this Cape from Iraq to we were on the air yesterday. Actually. So it was boiling avoiding I think Nancy Pelosi realized she had to do something her statement is not so bad. I mean, speaker Pelosi majority leader Hoyer, the majority whip Clyburn assistant speaker Raila Jan. The caucus chairman hockey Jeffries caucus chair Catholic, basically the entire House Democrat leadership onto statement. It says anti-semitism must be called out confronted and condemned whatever it is encountered without exception. This good. We will always be strong supporters of Israel and congress because we understand their support is based on shared values and strategic interests. That's right. That's a good way of explaining why the United States has such a strong relationship with Israel is that against shared democratic values, especially the reason world where there's not much of that and strategic interests. So it benefits the United States as well Tevin ally like Israel in that region. They allow for they said legitimate criticism of Israel's policies are protected by the values of free speech at democratic debate that the United States and Israel share share. There's people in Israel that disagree with the government that doesn't make them less Isreaeli. And you could do that it is an American elected official. But as I say congresswoman Omar's use of antisemitic. Tropes and prejudicial accusation about Israel's supporters is deeply offensive. We condemn these remarks so strong language there, we call upon congresswoman Omar to immediately policies for these hurtful comments as Democrats in his Americans the entire congress must be fully engaged denouncing rejecting all forms of hatred racism prejudice discrimination wherever they encounter. Okay. So strong condemnation. And what did they ask for their to policy? Well, congress Omar she responded. Okay. So the first part of response is not so bad. She says, and this is our statement anti-semitism is real, and I'm grateful for Jewish allies colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of antisemitic tropes, again, this idea that she doesn't know about that history, and she's elected to congress and on the foreign affairs committee of all committees is kind of unique, but we'll save that for a moment. My intention is to never fit my constituents who are mostly Somali Muslims or Jewish Americans as a whole that's fine. We have to always be willing to step back and think through criticism just as I expect to hear people to hear me when others attacked me for identity. This is why I unequivocally apologize. Okay. So you think the statement went in there, right because she says equivocally apologize this issues with that opening statement. I think you can dissect what that would people attack me, you know, trying to shift the issues, but she doesn't stop. She writes, I unequivocally apologise maybe need a grammar lesson. Because usually if you want to quickly apologize, you leave it there. No. She doesn't at the same time. This is in her words at the same time, I reaffirmed the problematic role of lobbyists and our politics. Whether it be pack the NRA or the fossil fuel industry. She doesn't say Planned Parenthood, the abortion industry or other leftist causes that are also active in our government processes. And so in her apology, she doubles down her attack on the largest pro Israel group in the United States and the most bipartisan. And then later re tweets a comet attacking APEC and Jewish. Money's control of American politics later later on last night. So she's doubled down on her same criticism that she was called out for. So we believe at this point. Joining with other groups that she must be removed by Nancy. But first of all in the re tweet she attacks the tweet that she sit out also attacks Nancy Pelosi. So if this is really the speaker of the house in the leader of the Democrats in the house of representatives, the people's body, she should remove congressman, Omar, at least from the foreign affairs committee where she can get classified briefings on the Middle East, for instance, at a place where she is even understand. And we said it so many times on this broadcast. I mean actions have are louder than words, they have more consequences than words, and I would look at two people first of all congressman Omari. I'd like you said part of that apology. The words were fine. But her action speaks so much louder. They demonstrate an anti semitic bias, and it has a fracture are lines with Israel that shouldn't be accepted by either party in those actions dwarf her words as for s for speaker Pelosi and the democrat leadership Jordan, there is an action that should be automatic here. It looks to me like they're just trying to get political cover by getting in extracting this apology from the congresswoman, but Jordan, we talked about this in the break. The fact that the congresswoman sits on the house foreign affairs committee gives her a disproportionately large voice inside her party on US foreign policy. That's just simply not acceptable is speaker Pelosi and the rest of the democrat leadership mean what they say Jordan, and they say that her views are out of line with their party, then they should not be affording her that seat on the committee. They need to follow up. Up their words with actions and remove her from the committee, and quite frankly, Jordan, I think on the political point. You're also right about the the front to leadership. I think if this happened inside either party on basically any issue, but this one and a member of that party confronted the leadership in this kind of disrespectful way. I think the consequences would be swift. And they need to be in this case, you have comments on this will take them at one eight hundred six eight four thirty one ten and wanna play Steve Scalise? Then we'll get back to the the the bipartisan agreement potentially. I think we may come back to Omar issue as well because it's still developing she decided after that fake apology to double down on her attack on a pack, which she did by re tweeting someone attacking APEC and attacking Nancy Pelosi. So you would think Nancy Pelosi would take notice of you may hope this kind of gets covered up in the news of is going to be shut down is their budget deal. We're not going to allow that. And that's why I say we'll come back to it. I'm also watching we're watching closely. What congressman Omar saying? What is Nancy Pelosi? Get a say in response if any. Are they going to try to just let this go which I think is what they hoped would happen after the apology. But it wasn't a real apology. Not accepted congressman Omar you have to do better. And so does Nancy Pelosi, and this is not really a partisan issue. I mean, I think if you're a democrat you'd want and supposed to take swift action on this. Because again, you allow this you're going allow this very if you really believe this is such a horrible viewpoint. Why are you empowering them while they're while they're still poking you not Republicans we going after the democrat leadership? Let me play Steve Scalise. This is the GOP whip in the house of Representative here. He is take a listen. Think about this right now, she sits.

By those hateful, words words do have consequences, and if you promote hateful ignorant believes, you will be held accountable, and certainly congress should lead the way this week ignorance of white nationalism was defended by one of my colleagues today as we recognize Dr king's birthday, I am reminded that Dr king called on all Americans to enlist in a crusade finally to in the race question and make it an ugly relic of a dark pass.

That this behavior is unacceptable. And the underlying premise is that we've had leaders at the highest levels down the street from here condone and continue to perpetuate race baiting. White supremacist language that is not good for this country. We need to come together. We are a week or country today because we are so divided.

You look after each other you treat people with respect no matter where they come from what they look like what the color of their skin is what their gender may be. Or what religion? They may practice. Doug Collins, what is true on the floor today, and what should be true in the hearts of every American, and frankly, not just every American, but those around the world is that we realized that we have been given a gift by God, we have been given the strength by God. And we've been given the hope I got to treat each other with dignity respect and love when we understand that. Then it takes away. But we also manage speaker today also realized it when we as members speak people pay attention and people hold us accountable. And we've talked about that in many ways. And that cannot continue in the way that we have seen it white supremacy is wrong. Why nationalism is wrong antisemitism is wrong. When we divide ourselves. And we classify ourselves against each other. We bring our sales down not those that we go after and as long as we ever have anyone in this country that believes that they can climb to the top on the backs of others because they make fun of their race their gender their ethnicity or any other thing, then we value and devalued the way breath that God gives us matter. Speakers I said earlier when opened this there's not anyone we face today. Anyone we come in contact with today that is not inherently in deeply loved by God. And it's pretty simple. He breathed life into them. I believe it with all that. I am here. And if I cannot believe if I believe that God created each and every person that I say in everything we see around us. How can I not value that creation? How can I not stand against anyone who? Tear that now or a specially if there was ever a thought in this country from anybody anywhere to take and say, this is a Christian value. Then I say there will be a judgment. It is already written down there. No man, stands that way. So today is pretty simple place. A yes. Vote on the floor. We support this resolution because it's not an American value is not what we stand for. And that matter speaker are you back? The gentleman yield gentleman from New York. Right now yield to close the debate on our side, the remaining of our time to the gentleman from Illinois, Mr. Chretien emerging. Gentlemen from illinois's recognize. Thank you, Madam speaker. I rise on Martin Luther King junior's birthday to urge passage of a Trez forty one and to reject white nationalism in white supremacy in all its forms. And I applaud both sides for taking out this resolution in support of rejecting white nationalism. But today Madam speaker, I ask one question where does President Trump stand on this resolution? Will President Trump do as we are doing and reject white supremacy in all its forms. So far we have heard nothing but silence. I asked him to act and do the same rejecting white supremacy and white nationalism today. Thank you. The gentleman yields back. The question is will the house has been the rules and agree to house resolution forty one those in favor say Aye, those opposed those opposed. No the opinion of the chair two thirds being in. The affirmative the rules are suspended the resolution is agreed to and without objective speaker. This is a gentleman. I asked the Asian Age. Nasar requested all those in favor of taking this vote by the as and the nays will rise and remain standing until counted. Sufficient.
