50- Deplatforming and Section 230
"You know there's a lot of things going on in the world but because trump is not an office. I actually don't have a good idea of what we're gonna talk about today so. Please tell me what we're gonna talk about well. We are actually an attack a bit more about trump because seems to linger here. But i thought you when i would talk about that. Subject of d platforming. Oh okay. that's interesting all right. So on tuesday february ninth. Trump's second impeachment trial began the senate. I decided fifty six to forty four. Vote that a former president can in fact stand trial for impeachment even after having left office and that trial move very quickly house. Impeach managers who serve as the prosecution team showed us some dramatic images and videos of what happened on january six when trump supporters attacked the capital and delayed congress's certification of the election. Remember there was just one single charge or article of impeachment against trump and that was for inciting insurrection. Representative jamie raskin was the lead manager and in his closing argument. He said it's now clear beyond doubt that trump supported the actions of the mob. And so he must be convicted. It's that simple. He was not. The trial ended on saturday february thirteenth now. A majority of the senate did vote to convict trump including seven republican senators. But the fifty seven to forty three vote. Fell short of what the constitution requires. And that's a two-thirds majority are fifty seven. The nays are forty. Three two thirds of the senators president not having guilty. The senate judges responded donald. John trump former president united states is not guilty as charged the article peach birth now trump was acquitted of that single charge of inciting the capital attack on january six and because of the acquit all. The senate never held a vote on disqualifying trump from office. So he's free to run for president in two thousand twenty four trump's the first president to be impeached twice and the first to be tried after leaving office and for that he makes history. But i'd like us to return to the riot at the capitol just one more time for a different perspective to look at the link between what happened in washington and what happened online. Theoretically come ready. let's do it so remember that. Many of the writers came directly from president. Trump's save america rally that began that morning on the ellipse. That's the park near the white house. And trump had addressed the crowd with some fiery language but it was elsewhere that really mattered for weeks and really for months trump had been on social media especially on twitter and facebook with false claims that there had been election fraud and that he not biden had won the election. And if you look back now you can see pretty. Clearly how much.

"Listeners. And welcome back to workplace perspective carla bass. Hello and thank you for the opportunity. I'm glad to have you back. I was. I was looking back at our shows and we had you on the show just about this time last year talking to us about how to be better writers in our work lives. And today we're gonna be talking about performance reviews from both the employer employee perspective. Secret cited to hear what you have to say about all of that but before we get started. Why don't you tell our listeners. A little bit about you and what you do right now mike. My mission is to teach people how to write powerfully. Why because opens doors to opportunity that would otherwise remain closed now with that in mind and based on the difficulties that cove it has inflicted on everybody. I can post three free e books on my website. They address How to write a standout resume how to write a performance review and how to write a grant submissions. So i- laser focused everything. I'm going to say on those three areas but my my journey has done amazing for forty five years. I've written products for the white house and congress and generals and ambassadors Thirty of those years was on active duty in the air force in the last fifteen was with federal agency. The pivot point for me that changed my life and is what brought me to you. Today is when i was a lieutenant. Colonel i was a squadron commander in hawaii in charge of four hundred eighty wonderfully talented people when i arrived that unit was the most losing unit in statewide professional awards. Not because the kids didn't deserve to win but because the supervisors could not write winning packages so i developed. My methodology. Taught my guys how to write. We began sweeping the awards. And then i ended up teaching that for the next fifteen years to thousands of people and When i retired. I pivoted that and turned it into a book that that place to everyone. Corporate business private and that's right to influence It's now in its second edition. And it's one eight eight national level awards so this is what i do nowadays. Well that's awesome. We'll have links Your website and you'll publications on our podcast page when we get your show put up. But let's get into it so when it comes to crafting these meaningful powerful performance reviews. What advice can you offer to employers and supervisors and on the flip side employees. Ls what you're thinking. sure. I have eight tips for the employer a supervisor the first to recognize that a performance review is a strategic tool. Not only are you grooming the future of the individual you're also grooming the future of the organization because through it you're trying to promote the best of the best so it actually impacts the organization's future second is impact Make sure when you're telling these stories that you explain the so what. The impact is the heart of the performance review and supervisors because of their elevated positions have a wider perspective. And they sometimes have a better vantage point What impact the individual actually had like dropping a pebble in the pool. The the individual can see the first couple circles but the employer has a bird side. You and understands more so he needs he or she needs to explain that to the employees and make sure it's reflected in the performance review The third tip is to position your subordinates. For future successes create material for the next performance review and by that i mean recognize outstanding performances formerly with thank you notes or time off awards. Note compliments that they received from clients and keep an email file for each each employee. That would Where you can gather this this very valuable material. The next is award speaking of awards if you have a superstar that you'd like to submit for award and you're you're really really busy. Ask that individual to draft a reward nomination on him or herself to do the initial legwork that does two things it takes a little bit of the burden off of you and it also gives that individual practice. And here's how you craft a hard hitting award report qualities do you. Do you value specific qualities in an employee like teamwork or flexibility communication skills. Or whatever if you do tell them that so they have that mark Against which they can they can measure the performance number six and this applies to. Everybody is framed. The story put the put the The item that you're describing in context was detailed detail provides a mental yardstick where people can actually understand what you're trying to say so for example My most valuable branch cheese sounds good but you could only one or two branch sheets so say the most valuable of my eight branch cheese or employee of the quarter okay but employee of the quarter selected from forty five peers. That's what i mean when i say. Put it in context and the final two tips for the supervisor of the employer is started off thinking terms of a boxer. You hit the reader with a solid right cross. That's the opening hook and here are some examples of opening hooks Her top three of many accomplishments bla-bla-bla propelled her office to new heights and then continue Impervious to stress. He that that that that the an opening hook like that tells the reader pay attention. What follows is important. So that's the criticality of open hook that the last quote the last words. The closing words are as important as the opening hook because that forms the final impression so examples of a of a closing hook the closing words would be excelled in this top job or her proactive can do approach is contagious or place in positions to influence others. So you've basically got a sandwich you've got the the hard hitting opening the center that focuses on the impacts and has the details. And then you've got the closing. So those are the thoughts for the supervisors and for the employees. It's there hang onto the second. carlisle me. ask you something. We're going to take a break in the end. We'll come back and talk about the employee part of it but let me ask you this about the supervisors. Those are awesome thoughts. That's great. I love the you know putting things in context
"white house" Discussed on Powerhouse Politics
"I have to say. Rick spoke to me this book so i don't know i don't know what that says about me. But it's exploring the white house inside america's most famous home. And i can't i was i first of all. I really did. Enjoy this book and it isn't good read and not just for kids but but one thing you describe is kind of the the looked almost a city that exists below the white house. I mean the white house complex as many floors and you've got shops down in the basement. You've got the electrical shop. You've got the woodworking shop. The plummer explained to us how you came to kind of understand all that and your your your process of exploring this This incredible yeah. We'll things i hope. I hope that adults can read this with their kids. And and you know learn something Too but yeah. I was surprised Having been a reporter When i was the white house reporter. I had no idea that there were these floors. Two floors underneath The white house where there are as you say flower shops. There's the Butlers have their lockers. i mean it is. This university are used to be a cafeteria where the staff would eat lunch and there was a one time even like a cook that would put for them. That's not the case anymore but I just thought it was fascinating. There's a there two hidden mezzanine levels where there's a pastry chef kitchen because the chef used to argue so much with the executive chef the actual you know the the pastry chef executive chef were get into these screaming matches. They got so bad that they had to be separated into separate kitchen. So i mean it is kind of like the stale naby at the white house and the book is meant to honor the work to of the african american butlers who during segregation would not be able to sit where they wanted to on the bus. But yet we're working in the most famous house in the country new the president well And the fact that the white house was indeed built by slaves. And so there's a lot of background there. And and i also think kids like to have specific so there's like a very specific map. There's a breakdown of the assures office and things like that. And and some fun photos of george h w bush playing horseshoes with the staff. And i think it's a. It's a hopeful. Look at what we might return to one day and you know And and the way that the resident staff stays on from one president to the next. I think is wonderful in in reporting this out. I mean this is. This is a different level of detail that you'd get into what are you. What are you tribute the fascination with the building to the majesty of the presidency. There's something there is something special about the white house. And i'll tell you my kids relate to and they've they've both been fortunate enough to be able to to go to the white house and the fascination remains for what where is where is the. Where is that little special sauce that you see coming out of this of most residents. I think it's you know it's the closest thing we have to Buckingham palace right. We don't have a royal family. This is it. And i think especially when their kids living there. That's why have a section growing up in the white house you know. There was something really special when sasha malia where they are an when barron trump was there. I mean there is a sense even though we didn't see a lot of them the staff really from what i know. The staffer liked having him there. You know the they'd see him playing video games in the residence. They'd see him playing soccer with his friends. There's a sense of lightness there and I mean you guys know this. It's really fun. When their kids. They are and animals. Like when the obamas had bo and sunny. There there was a lightness to it. And i think it's a mix it more human But yeah there's something very aspirational and patriotic and exciting about the building itself. That i think kids really can relate to. We're going to have animals. The biden's have have dogs. They also grandkids. What joe biden is very familiar with that building. Quite obviously through many presidencies. An eight years is is obama's vice president. What's your sense of after covid. What life will be like a in and around the biden white house. Well you both probably remember. How biden was you know he would have. Those parties for reporter is at the Naval observatory when he was vice president and he would get out there with a water gun and kids your kids and grandkids to come and it was like a very lighthearted scene and would bring german shepherd out. I mean it was always very inclusive. i think so. I think they'll be a you know a sense of fun that that was missing. I think that malania was very private and understandably guarded about barron so they ripped out the place that the obama girls had in. I mean everything was just. You know on lockdown it didn't feel is open And i think we'll see it more as the people's house when biden is there and there'll be a lightness To the house. I think. I hope we get the nice new tennis pavilion during this crisis. I mean that was. That was something important and i one thing about the about the book is you. You go into all the pets and there are so many great stories about About pets and you describe something that i could relate to. 'cause i had the same reaction as is being on air force one. During the obama years. I remember seeing bo. The dog was was was really was really something else. And now we've had four years..
"white house" Discussed on Powerhouse Politics
"I mean we've never seen this before you know Biden seventy eight years old. He'll be the oldest presidents take office. This is a virus that we know makes him especially susceptible and so the services administration said they're going to do this very deep cleaning cleaning every surface and of the fifty five thousand square foot mansion And we've never there's always been a deep clean between administrations but we've never seen anything like this and and i keep wondering you know. Trump can trump. No one would expect him to ride in the limo with biden on the way to the swearing in any way right because of covid so there are some things that he could get out of doing. Just because of the virus So if he does decided because we don't know yet right if he does decide to come in do this. Typical inauguration day cerebral the in. Show up he doesn't have to be especially physically close with biden and the way that the trumps and the obamas were so i would think that corona virus could be a an excuse for him in some ways to not have to do some of the traditional things Should he choose to show up in piece of tradition. That i've been thinking a lot about is the letter the to me some. There's some of the most memorable pieces of writing from from a president comes as as he leaves office. And the words that that george h w bush left for bill clinton became quite famous. I remember being. I was at the white house. Just a few days into the trump administration. David muir an interview there and were there in the oval office. He whipped out the letter that obama sent him. And you know the the block letters. Mr president at that point he was sort of hinting at was in it but he didn't. He didn't release it. It has subsequently become public and we remember what obama told trump about the importance of being the president for all the people. Trump seem moved by the words on that a letter he talked about. What a beautiful letter it was. He was very proud of this letter. I can't imagine trump writing a to joe biden. It's that sitting there in the resolute desk and to me it's it's just a small symbol of of how awkward destroyed What does this do to the president to president dynamic the club of presidents to have trump now a joining their ranks. Really with no to speak of with any of the other former presidents or the incoming president. I thought it was really interesting. That all of the former president said they would get vaccine right. I mean that was a good example of ways in which they get together To challenge trump without directly challenging him. But you're right. I mean the wondering about the letter to because you know you had bush forty one saying. I'm rooting hard for you to bill clinton. I mean this kind of sense of patriotism. And you just can't imagine that trump would do the same. And i've i've asked and haven't gotten an answer about the letter. I don't know if you guys have had any more luck than i have on that but I think it would be Even if he didn't show up to the inauguration right he could leave a letter in the drawer of the resolute desk for biden. God knows what it would say. But i think it would be fascinating The president's club is I think the remaining the living presidents are closer than they would have been otherwise because trump is kind of brought them together In some ways. But yeah i think he's gonna be obviously an outlier And it'll be very strange to witness what what happens when i think he'll leave and become a republican king maker right. I mean he's not going anywhere in the next few years you've also talked about how they the white house itself is actually also a museum and for those first two floors floors that we see if we go to a white house holiday party or something like that Are are really not controlled by the president the portrait's on the walls the decor are Are not you know. It's one thing that that even even as president you don't fully control. But i did catch a story. I'm sure you saw it to earlier. This i think it was earlier. This year About how the portraits of george w bush and and the clintons Of bill clinton. I don't think the hillary clinton portrait but had been moved so that the president wouldn't have to see them as he walks around those floors of the white house. First of all is that is that crew and as far as you know. And and secondly i curious what kind of lasting impact will donald trump have on that building. I mean malania. Got this strange sculpture. That was put in the In in the rose garden you know we're we're we're obama famously. Had his beer summit. I wonder if something like that thing is going to stay the The gold fixtures in the In you know the that have been put in The president's private bathroom the chandelier in his. I mean what what what kind of. Go back the white house ten years from now. What what mark of donald trump or are we going to see on the place. Do you think you know I think i might have mentioned this before that. I have heard that the physical impact that he's gonna leave. I don't know. I don't think it's i think that biden is probably gonna you know immediately get rid of the what the president jackson portrayed in the oval office and all those things that he can change immediately and it happens as you know. Right on inauguration day those photos are all switched out And it's like the the former president was never there. I mean you can make the physical changes. But i think he's obviously left and mark Culturally that will will Be very lasting And yeah i think that also a what. Melania trump did with that statue and then which he did with the rose garden a lot of these things show that there was just a tone deafness to this administration. And i think it is because she wasn't advised by the right people. She only had a staff of about a dozen people less than half of michelle obama staff. She just didn't she didn't have the right people working for her. And then like you said it's because they've alienated and and really ostracize themselves from all the other presidents who could've helped and all the other first ladies They didn't have a lot of bush people working there. They didn't have people with a to tional knowledge. And i think that was a big problem for them or kate. Let's take a quick break when we come back. I wanna talk to you a bit about About your new book back month..

So you never miss an episode. Here is as my conversation with Ed loose you as national editor and columnist at the financial. Times. giving. You will a contrast with how Boris Johnson. was treated when he came down with a virus and the reporting on his condition than and the reporting on his condition now. I gather it has left him with some after effects. That's That's something that. Might, even be observable when he seemed doing his public events from Downing Streak. But when he was admitted to hospital just think was late March might have been April He had been a in the previous week isolated on the upper floor of the private apartment within ten Downing Street where the prime minister leads and he'd been known interacting with Downing Street stuff. But he'd been releasing these. Rather badly recorded. Videos on twitter. Saying. He was doing really well he was getting better improving just a matter of time, and then suddenly he was admitted to hospital after about a week if this. and as you know, but on a ventilator. which is. A sign that you're halfway towards desk to -gistically speak A. Pretty close to dine and I think you know because this was in the abbey stages of the primate. In spite of the fact that Boris Johnson it'd be taking a very trumpian position of denial. About how serious it wants and had been boasting about gang around hospitals and shaking hands with people And in spite of the fact, he had flooded the British. Government therefore had flooded with embracing the her immunity approach shoe the pandemic namely, let's just get everybody infected and get his life with in spite of all that it's opinion poll ratings ready did rockets. After his near death experience, I guess because of the sympathy factor and also because he was in. A. National. Health Service Hospital. And the NHS is something approaching a secular religion in Britain and he was very thankful for the Kerry received. but since then. Frankly he hasn't. Had in terms of policy all competence much of a road to Damascus. Much evidence that you know if this is made in take scientific advice more seriously. The government throughout the summer? Have this program a subsidy ten pound pom Neil Subsidy to encourage people to go out to each in restaurants. Out when you know it's the point was to save the restaurants. You should just transfer the money directly to them. Why endanger everybody else? And then they got rid of that. Addictive League people told them before it started this is done. That's just one example have been. Dozens of similar examples of stuff that intuitively immediately you and I could say this isn't GonNa work. They're GONNA have to climb down about a month from now and we've had. This cockamamie magical gimmicky approach and Britain is now again back in the full front of rising infections in Europe And Very very little public trust. In the government and Boris's ratings back down to. Low. Levels? They will try to his. Signature. Hell is his health out if this is all rimma based so I, I can't answer that definitively but I know people, you know who quite responsible with what they say and not not sort of working tabloids day that love is being cleared. So the decline in his mental acuity. Very evident fact he there are signs he might be a long holder as they. Call. It somebody who's got long term issues related to the disease again though what I'd say about Breath is it's not like we have this socratic leader before he got sick and now he's going team governance has deteriorated. He's always been a bit of a Sherman and never really been very serious I minister even learning won the election hands down. It's quite hard to the point to appear in pre covid where the that's when he was firing on all cylinders. That's what he was ready, consistent, clear and admirable as Anita. Period didn't happen. Now president trump is back at the White House what about the White House staff and I'm not just talking about those who have their own private offices or those who report directly to him while he's up in the private quarters what about the staff like the butlers like the housekeepers like the cooks? How can they be protected from a possible contagion from a man who is clearly still within that long period when he could give it To other people very poignant question because you know if you look at the hundreds of people who walk in the White House over the course of a week people coming in and out people having the game as the cooks, the bottom as the various positions on all levels of the White House disproportionately likely to be black and non white and say you having microcosm ready within the White House what we've seen nationally wishes astronomy line essential workers. Disproportionately, non white. Cotton. Being asked to carry on with their jobs regardless of whether the people with whom they interface take precautions, and he'd many bizarre think now by now the majority of Americans. So it's probably Internet's dangerous today to be a bus driver all. Amazon delivery person than it would have been much I do think that customers more responsible on average trump isn't trump hasn't adjusted his behavior and you know as we saw on on Monday nights. At masks just came straight off the rules. Of apparently now, being changed by Mountain Meadows Chief of staff that that you must wear a mask inside the White House that's just take polls this six months into this the White House find me says you to wear a mask. It's later than those of most rundown McDonald's in Newark. DEPRIVED UP and part of America it's months later than anywhere else. This is the White House it sets the tone. So I feel desperately sorry for people you know who got to work for president and many around him who a contemptuous of these guidelines and believe that their assign of being a feed. Opener GP. Correct famine in a way because trump's trump's consciously trying to be masculine his idea of masculine with.

"From the opinion pages of the Wall Street. Journal this is Potomac. Watch president trump is back at the White House Republicans are steaming ahead with Amy Cody Barrett's confirmation hearings and Michigan lockdown orders get struck down by the State Supreme Court Welcome Kyle Peterson with the Wall Street Journal sitting in today for Paul Zhigo. We are joined today as usual by my colleagues Kim, Strassel, hi, Kim Hi. Kyle. and Bill. mcgurn Hello Bill Hi Kyle On Monday night president trump left Walter, reed medical center went back to the White House There's video showing Marine One landing on the lawn trump getting out climbing the White House stairs taking off his mask and flashing thumbs up and then in a video that he tweeted a taken shortly thereafter, he thanked doctors urged the Americans not to be fearful the virus saying don't let it dominate. You don't be afraid of it. You're going to beat it doctor say that the president is not entirely out of the woods yet but bill, it's at least good to see him back in the White House good to see him feeling better than he was last week. Yeah. Absolutely. Look it hasn't gone the way he thought it would be but I think he's trying to convey optimism and and rightly also trying to convey you know you shouldn't be hostage to the situation you know you can move ahead and so forth. So but as you as you, no doubt heard when we editor Oriel meeting people watching the same thing had very different reactions to it, which seems to be true of anything president trump does well, let me ask a little bit about that. I mean I do wonder how the message of that optimism from him is going to be received. By the American people I mean, first of all critics will say that. The president was treated with an antibody cocktail that as of now is unavailable to the general public and I mean if everything goes well hopefully, that will be more widely available soon, but the second thing is that although the White House did have pretty strong testing protocol the argument is that the president and his staff were not following social distancing guidelines mass guidelines. And maybe the the the image that will stick in people's minds about this is the first family not wearing their masks in the debate hall last week Kim. What. What do you make of those arguments How do you think that that the president's messages here? Well most of those arguments are being made by let's be honest a left-wing media that despises this president. So they'll say whatever they can to undermine him, and the reality is that this disease is that we don't know how anybody got this who spread it under what circumstances when it happened We don't even know that masks necessarily are effective there I said it..
"white house" Discussed on Stuff You Missed in History Class
"Unfortunately very few of the mansions historically significant artifacts are retained or preserved while saving the house itself during the Kennedy Administration First Lady Jackie Kennedy redecorated, but her vision for the mansion was one that sought to incorporate what had come before her redecoration was really more of a researched restoration. Mrs. Kennedy sought out experts in antiques and assembled them into a committee that would advise on this whole process. As Jackie Kennedy's efforts became public knowledge antique pieces donated from private owners to become part of the White House restoration in September of Nineteen Sixty one congress passed an act concerning the White House and providing the care and preservation of its historic and artistic contents. This established the White House, art collection, and it finally declared the White House a museum. The first lady hired the first. White, house curator tasked with creating a comprehensive catalogue of the homes contents in managing the collections with an eye toward preservation as well as collection as you may recall from Vincent Price episode from back in two thousand, sixteen price was one of the art experts who helped assemble that first official art collection, but perhaps the most significant White House. From the Kennedy Administration was the first. Lady's establishment of the White House Historical Association the White House's Stoorikhel Association is a private nonprofit organization and it stated mission is quote to protect, preserve and provide public access to the rich history of America's Executive Mansion. Used a lot of their available research as they worked on this. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two, ABC aired. What is now a pretty famous piece about Jackie Kennedy's work in the White House including a tour of the highlights of the newly redone home. And the first lady spoke about her ideology for the whole process saying quote this house will grow and should it just seemed to me such a shame when we came here to find hardly anything of the past in the house hardly anything before nineteen to the administration of President Jimmy Carter moved the White House into the future in two significant ways one, the mansions first computer system was installed and to solar panels were installed heat the facilities water there's panels were short lived initially they were taken down during the Reagan presidency although the George W Bush administration put them back. So that is we we are going to conclude four today. In our second part coming up next time around we're GonNa talk about the gardens, and then as I mentioned, we're going to talk about how much all of these things we've talked about really hinged on the work of in slave. Labor So in the meantime I'm going to read a delightful email. As a balancing act so it's not all all serious, but I do hope that in hearing all of this in particularly like that the White House has burned out completely been taken down to the STUDS, etc. People realize like it is not a static sacred cow. So to speak something shifts and changes, that's just how it's always meant to be from the beginning. But the email I wanna read is about something completely different, which is an older episode, the Limerick. Soviet. It is from our listeners Serena i. hope that is how she pronounces it and it makes me think of dream of Jeannie Serena rights. I am a recent listener since finding your podcast I've been listening every day I really enjoy the way you present information in a way where I can listen actively.
"white house" Discussed on Article II: Inside Impeachment
"Join me for wise's happening new episodes every Tuesday. Wherever you get your podcasts Let's talk about where things go from here. The articles of Impeachment Democrats McRae are are introducing here two articles of impeachment to charges abuse of power obstruction of Congress. We did not see the White House. Play a formal role in these committee. Hearings brings they were offered one the declined it. Will there be a specific White House defense on these two charges. The Senate is where they are expecting vaccine to really be able to lay out their case part of that is just by the very nature of how the Senate trial works and we don't have all the procedures details details on what's going to happen on. The Senate side laid out yet. But as we've seen in past impeachments the president's lawyers will have an opportunity to stand in front of the Senate and make their very clear concise case like it works in a criminal trial. That's where we should see. A more clear case from. The White House is coming to shape. You're getting into some interesting territory here too because there. Is this question out there about. If this zooming does get to the Senate the Senate has to have a trial. Republicans Publican's of course control the Senate Mitch McConnell the Senate Majority Leader on the one hand. Here he is the leader of the Republican Party in the Senate on the other hand he sort of has control troll of the entire Senate the entire chamber the entire institution. How is he balancing those two? Those two roles right. I mean obviously is not a supporter of of impeachment and has a very strong supporter of the president. He has not been as big a defender of the president's. S Some members of the Senate Lindsey Graham for example. Paul and. I'm told that part of that is that he has to do a bit of a balancing act here where the way that the impeachment is designed for the Senate. The senators are supposed to be the jurors. Now I've been told by people who talked to his office and and other senators involved in this process that you know they feel the house process looked very partisan and they would like it although it's a difficult to fully imagine this being possible but they would like it to sort of look like a non-partisan process in the Senate or at least not have it looked like quote unquote Oh kangaroo court show trial to of course then give some legitimacy to the outcome which presumably will be the president being acquitted so in order for that that to really look like the acquittal was done in a serious thoughtful process McConnell and other senators are trying to stay out of the the the daily fray of impeachment this is a obviously a noteworthy week in Washington to put it mildly. Not just because this is the week the Democrats Put to put forward the articles of impeachment. They're going to bring against the president but also because on the same day that Democrats did that there was arguably the biggest bipartisan artisan legislative breakthrough that there has been for the entire trump presidency basically three years now this on the US MCA the United States. Mexico Canada trade agreement sort of of an update of the NAFTA agreement from generation ago. The timing of that is so fascinating to folks because this gives at least potentially trump's something legislatively to brag about. What's going on there? That was maybe one of the biggest whiplash moments of the past three years. There's been so many but that that that was quite remarkable to see her with an hour of each other announce articles of impeachment. And then come out and say oh by the way you remember that guy. We were impeaching. Well we just reached a deal with him but for trump it does give him a really strong talking point. This was one of the main campaign promises he made. Unlike those politicians all additions I keep my promises. Trump advisor feel like this is one of their strongest arguments. Is that unlike every other politician in the history the world trump actually did what he said he was going to do. He didn't get into office and do what the lobbyist of the special interest told him to do. He stuck to what he said he was going to do. And he got it done and they have a whole motto. Promises made promises kept so it is a very big win for him and he doesn't have that many other than the tax bill. I'd say this is the second most significant legislative achievement. He has at that rally last night to the president. Also making the claim that hey this whole impeachment thing. It's only only making me stronger. Poll numbers have gone through the roof. Because stupid when you look at the polls on this it's it's much more complicated picture. Then he's painting. We've we've certainly seen before but I I. It's not clear to me. I have to say looking at the polls that either side is benefiting right now i. I wonder when you when you talk to people kind of behind the scenes on both sides of this do they each feel like yeah. The politics of this are going to work for us are they. Both apprehensive is one more confident than the other. What you pick up on when they're when they're sort of not being quoted for the record? Well I mean I will say I talk a lot. More to Republicans than people on trump than Democrats. But I certainly was just having a conversation with the the democratic strategists today who was touting some poll numbers they had in battleground states and then yesterday of course I was talking to someone on the trump side who who is touting their numbers in battleground states so everybody seems to have their own version of reality. Whether it's idee reported the Miller report or poll numbers everybody. Everybody seems to have their own version that fits their narrative but when I talked to those involved with the campaign about what are you looking for in the poll numbers. They have a sense that everybody's basically chosen their sides so there is a sense that this election like twenty sixteen is GonNa come down to the margins. It's GONNA come down to turn out it's GONNA to come down to mobilizing certain groups D mobilizing other groups. It's going to have a lot to do with who their opponent is. I think there's a general level of optimism in trump world. But they do feel like it will come down to a few thousand votes in Florida that we won't know how it's going to go until the night before before the election. It's a fascinating possibility that I guess kind of fits in with this polarized era. We're always talking about the possibility you could have. In impeachment of a President United States and he emerges politically not strengthened or weakened. Just just sort of the same after actually going through impeachment and then it comes down as you say to another election here we are again Tena Petty Senior White House reporter for NBC News.

"white house" Discussed on Article II: Inside Impeachment
"Shannon petty pieces of senior White House this reporter for NBC News Shannon. Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me so we have been talking for weeks now really months now about the impeachment of Donald Trump. Let's look closer at trump trump himself. His White House how he is handling all of this. He was in Hershey Pennsylvania last night chocolate capital of the world but I think when it comes to politics obviously Pennsylvania critical state in two thousand twenty one. That trump narrowly won in two thousand. Sixteen it's one. He's going to need to win again if he's GonNa get re-elected so on the same day that Democrats credits are formalizing these articles of impeachment against him trump is talking to a rally in Pennsylvania. What's he saying to them? He gave a pretty full throated. Defense of himself ALF. As well as ripping everyone involved in this process he at these rallies kind of goes through an area stark enemies list from Adam shifts like like shifty shifty. Here's a corrupt politician to Nancy. Pelosi is totally lost control to the whistle blower the whistle so blower defrauded our country because he throws one enemy after another at the audience and it is a bit of red the meat to the base but of course it's also a way for him to sort of get some things off his chest and you went on for about five minutes at this rally last night and I think that's maybe a little bit more. Then we get from him focused on peach men and it was really the only time we heard from the president yesterday and so he certainly did take that moment to give his full throated rebuttal rebuttal to what the Democrats had laid out you know. I wonder if there's a strategy behind holding a rally like this on a night like last night. Is there a strategic. TJ element here where trump in the White House WanNa put him in an arena of ten thousand members of the Republican base. Who are just cheering along shouting along? Long enjoying everything he saying about this sort of delivering a message to Republican elected officials. Have Hey remember the base is behind me. You don't WanNa Cross them exactly well in the early days of this impeachment inquiry when I talked to his advisers. What are you thinking? Are you nervous. Could this be end. They said well watch what happens to Republican Republican support. Even as numbers came out showing about half of Americans were supportive of this impeachment inquiry once they saw that Republicans support holding up. They said Ed does okay. I think we're GONNA be all right. There's not going to be a mutiny in Congress in the Senate because those Republicans will see if they want to avoid a primary. They're going to have to stick sick behind this president and I think he's continuing to do that in these rallies like you said are great example to reaffirm that he can fill a twenty thousand person stadiums in major cities including major democratic cities like Minneapolis for example where he was about a month or two ago. So that's definitely a side benefit of these things. It's interesting resting to to watch trump right now handling all of this because we have a president who was in his shoes in the same shoes basically at this exact time twenty one years ago. It was this same week. In December nineteen ninety eight at the House of Representatives was poised to impeach. Bill Clinton Clinton had a different way of handling it in public talk a little bit about comparisons between what Clinton was doing and and what effect it was having versus what trump's doing now get. It was a completely different way. I've talked to a number of people who are involved in that period with Clinton and who came up behind that strategy and they said really key to it was keeping Clinton out of impeachment Peach Mint as much as it might have bothered him personally. Behind the scenes in public he appeared to be president who was working hard on behalf of the the American people that was the image that they tried really hard to put in front that he couldn't be distracted by impeachment. He had real things to deal with. He had the economy and jobs and all the other foreign policy issues that come with being president and impeachment was just a a silly little thing that was being done by the Republicans now of course he did address his accusations and his impeachment at very key specific moments but on a daily basis he sought to stay out of the the fray and look presidential and Republicans and Democrats credit that strategy with helping Clinton get through the process where his approval approval rating went up to sixty percent seventy percent at one point. He left office as one of the most popular presidents they give that credit to the strategy. Strategy and Lindsey Graham was even one of those to give credit to this I think one of the reasons that he survived is that the public may not have liked what the president had done but believed that he was still able to do his job and as he governed during impeachment. I think that was probably the single best thing. He did. Quite frankly to to avoid and it also helps it backfire on the publicans because it made it look like the Republicans. Were not focused on the issues. That matter to people and were carrying on with you know what they tried to portray as just silliness inside the beltway behavior. One of the other other contrast to between Clinton and trump is what was going on behind the scenes is Clinton had sort of for lack of a better term a war council around him and impeachment appeasement war-council trump is really the single soul shaper of strategy for this White House. Trump actually said to us I forget which reporters specifically typically asked but it was one of those days when he's heading off to the helicopter and someone asked him. Are you going to build a war room or are you know. Are you going to be adding staff to help with impeachment. And he said I the an the team that I don't have teams everyone's talking about I'm the team. I did nothing wrong. Of course that fits in with this bigger theme. We've seen of his presidency. Let's see where he is his own communication director. He is his own. You know chief of Staff is own. Political Adviser doesn't think he needs a big staff around him but yeah Clinton learn how to very formal war room. They had a lawyer inside the White House who was solely focused on and peach men who acted as the quarterback who reviewed you'd messaging and talking points that went out of the surrogates and the circuits Clinton had were very few. It was James Carville and Lanny Davis for the most part and those two were able to have a very coordinated sharp message backed up by the facts backed up by the lawyers but it was organized denies and strategize and focused. And we've seen something much different in the trump White House I've seen some reporting here potentially interesting common link between Clinton and trump and that is somebody that trump apparently met with a couple of weeks ago who was instrumental in advising Clinton in ninety eight ninety nine. who was that what can you? What can you tell us about that? Mark Penn former Clinton adviser came into the White House to talk about this strategy that Clinton used and the trump White House is well aware of what what Clinton did how their strategy played out. They have received this advice of keep focused on being presidential. Don't look like you're distracted and pulled down by impeachment impeachment but like so much of the advice. People have given trump throughout his presidency whether it's his national security advisers or his allies in Congress he just I has a way of doing it his way and making his own call at the end of the day about how he's going to do it and he seems to be carried through with that she in an Alaska to stay put for week. Second where we take this break back in just a minute. Hey It's Chris as you know. Sometimes it's good to just take a step back from the day to day onslaught of news and take our broader broader. Look at the issues. That's what I'm doing each week. My podcast why is this happening. Were exploring topics ranging from school segregation to climate change. Well the way that I think it is climate change to the twentieth century. What maternity was to the nineteenth century? It'll be the central subject of questions about economic justice. Everything you care about in the world will be affected by climate and digging in deep with guests uniquely qualified to analyze issues from mass incarceration to race relations as you know for the first time in our history at the national level whites are on the verge of losing their majority status in twenty years. And I think it's no coincidence that our politics park getting more tribal..

"Don't forget that. At least one of these characters Kamala Harris is running for president the last thing she will ever do as part of that bid as seed to any Trump nominee for the supreme court. There's also a danger here that the White House is going to submit the nominees who aren't as qualified by the principles of the president has has stated the nominees that were non of these three nominees. We talked about we're vetted under the White House process in the last two years. They have strong pedigrees both in terms of legal experience and beliefs in the principles of original interpretation of the constitution. And it is true that in the past the White House, white houses have consulted, home state Democrats. If it's a Republican president or vice versa. If Democrats in the White House to say, all right? We're going to nominate this person. What do you think? And you know, you could see some kind of deference it's usually done at the district court level less at the appellate level because those nominations have become polarized ideologically as well. But these Democrats what have they done Kate? I guess would be my question to earn this kind of concessionary negotiation with President Trump. I mean, have they voted for any Trump nominee who who was at all controversial now nave done nothing to that. Goodwill. And like like, you said there's no guarantee air even probability that they show it at any later point. When it really matters. I'm skeptical that that really looking for a deal at all given the conditions..

"Yeah. From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac watch Goshi actions begin post to government shutdown for a some kind of border security immigration deal that could could help prevent block another shutdown. We'll tell you about the early innings. They're welcome. I'm Paul zhigo. And I'm here with the Kim strassel and Kate batchelder Odell. So the we had a little scoop in the paper here on these negotiations that have been taking place behind the scenes in which the White House counsel's office is negotiating with of all people Kamala Harris, and especially Dianne Feinstein to California senators over a pellet nominees. Now, what triggered this is that when the White House submitted remember last year late last year Jeff flake, the Republican from Arizona than at the time. No. Senator objected to judicial nominees being voted on in the Senate because they had a narrow margin Republicans couldn't confirm any nominee. So the White House now has renominated fifty judicial nominees. I think that's the figure Kate isn't it fifty and if t one and and three names conspicuously missing these are three nominees from California. Ed been nominated last year for the night circuit court of appeals Patrick Bouma. Tei Dan Collins in Ken Lee, now two other nominees for the night, circuit were renominated one from Washington state one from Arizona, why the Californians not Ron renominated enquiring minds want to know. And it turns out that this is because the White House has been Goshi eight into try to come to some consensus with these. Democratic senators to try to get at least less opposition to this these nominees and the future by giving them a stake in who can be who the president will nominate up front Kate. And I have to say the strikes me as an awful idea. But please please expand. Well, Paul so Diane Feinstein and Kamala Harris have been going back and forth with the White House counsels office on this issue for several months, including public letters asking that the White House counsel office would negotiate with them. And they're opening offer has basically been we will accept one person from your list, and then we want one person from our own list, and then some third candidate that everyone can agree upon. But there hasn't been much movement on this front, and it's easy to see why. And that's because Feinstein and Harris are unlikely to sign off on anybody on the White House list, the three nominees you mentioned are all well-qualified candidates that Harrison Feinstein have just a wholesale opposed. And they don't seem willing to accept any of those three as a part of an trade. Well, you know, my information is that. In fact, the White House is considering this pets baloney. The new White House council has been considering this with a goal of. Quake seriously. This isn't just some rumor or fly by night exercise. This is a serious consideration in the White House designed to to try to maybe kind of slow down. I mean, reduce the degree of opposition from democratic senators to Republican nominees, and in particular, if the White House gets a chance to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg later this year because of the justices health, and I'm not saying they will she's has given no intentions of wanting to step down. Although she she did have a very serious operation late last year. The the they're hoping that maybe this would get avoid kind of red cavenaugh meltdown. Kim my own view is good luck with that. Hope. I think Mr. zip baloney oughta be made to sit down and rewatch those Brad Kavanagh hearings. So that he can get a better sense of just how in the mood Democrats are to tolerate or accept any Trump nominee to the supreme court. This is wishful thinking, and it's very bad strategy because not only will it not aid them in that goal. But the president and the White House come across here looking very weak. They look almost as if they are rewarding the behavior of MS Harris, miss Feinstein, who were among the top people who did the drive-by mugging of Brett Cavanaugh and subjected him to such a horrible process and the idea that they come out of that. And then are rewarded and as by giving a veto over the president's ninth, circuit nominees is just mind boggling in a certain way. Well, not in a certain way, and every way so. It's it's a stonning and look to remember since we're talking about future supreme court nominees and people's motivations..

"So what will you create? Hey tamra, hey, Dominica all week long. Red Cavanaugh will face his Senate confirmation hearings. Yeah, he's President Trump's nominee for the supreme court, and there are going to be a lot of questions about how he could transform the supreme court for generation. The NPR politics podcast will be following those hearings and we'll hop in the studio every day to break down what you need to know. So you are obviously the heel for the president in your now, part of his narrative and part of his storyline, right? How does that affect you in your work? Knowing that you are a character in this plot arc as well? I mean, I think for a lot of us it's uncomfortable. I mean, it's weird to even talk about it right now. It's just instinctive like you don't want to talk about it as if our character. But when he does things like called individual reporters or institutions, you have no choice. He's the president and he's dragged you into it. And you know, I think a lot of reporters and like I haven't always been perfect about it to like, we will tweet things that will say, well, look at this. You know, the flags are up at the White House, but they're down at the monument. Wow, this is jarring. And you know, that's people in the White House watch that. And they take that as at a to'real ising and you know, I, I do think to be perfectly honest and transparent. Like reporters are humans too, and like sometimes they cross the line in the White House pays really close attention to that, and and they, it builds their argument that we. Are willing to be characters and crossed the line before. Do I think I have on Twitter, maybe. I think there was one time I I I did and it was something about reproductive rights. I think just to be honest, I think I just re tweeted something and I was just, I was like, I'm I, I think what I did was I said something about, I'm from a rural area. My high school had a daycare. We had absence only education. I worry about the women and children in those communities having access to education and services. And you've got some blowback. Yeah, it's just kinda like it. People watch you so close. It's hard to do. We do in this era where the president has made to pursuit of truth a partisan enterprise. Do you know what I mean? So I think now more than ever it's really incumbent upon reporters Katie saying to not let yourself be come part of the story when they're yourself, be baited, like, don't let they, and that's something he understands to is the art of the bait and the. Visors who helped him write as tweets or get like they all understand that. And it's really easy for them to get. I mean, there are a lot of reporters in Washington covering the White House and not everybody is perfect all day long. And you know what? I try not to do anymore on air. I try not to in this really, really fix broadcast. I don't read the tweets anymore. I try not to the full tweets stuff that isn't part pertinent the Trump tweets. Because in the beginning, you know, cable news, it's another tweet from the president. Let me read all four, four of them. And so now filled with untruths, the stuff that's not edifying or true, I don't try. I don't try to give voice to. I only try to stick to the pertinent stuff, and that is my way of trying to stick to what is real, what is true and to not get baited into whatever. Yeah. I mean when he drags throughout the lacrosse strategy such like it's like, okay, you know back to work, you know, you know, speaking about like not being baited as members of the press because they wanna bait, I think so long and hard about one particular White House correspondent at. CNN Jim Acosta who was taken up this enemy of the press back and forth as his cause. I in my heart of journalistic cards, think that's not the right way to handle it. Are there conversations about the right way to handle the enemy of the press stuff and how much you should be in that storyline amongst the White House press corps. You know, every every administration seems to have that reporter who is sort of known as being the thorn in its side, right?.

"And then I just say it like as of this moment, here's what we know this could change, but you know things in this White House. Things are true until they aren't true. How much is that? How different is that from the last administration? Oh, it's night and day. I mean, I remember during the Obama administration, you would get a. Sense of how the week was going to play out on a Sunday. They would get well, not the whole schedule, but you'd get a good road map. Yeah, they would use the Sunday shows to message. You know what they wanted to talk about that week where the agenda was headed, and I'm there was some White House staffers in the Obama administration who would apologize for last minute changes to the schedule. I'm very sorry to have to do. Yeah, exactly. And that's just not the way in granted every White House takes on sort of the personality of the president. And so we know the president enjoys chaos. And so this White House in just the way to operate is chaotic and that it becomes. Staffers don't. Oh, for sure. I don't. I think that they have learned to live in it. Do they ever tell you off the record or indicate or show any emotion that would indicate that they aren't happy? Are deflated are tired? Our weary that they, I don't. I don't get that feeling a lot. I get the feeling that they feel like they're entrenched warfare, and I feel like they really believe that the president has accomplished a lot on behalf of the people who voted for him. Okay. You know, they can live with tax cuts. They like that. They like the relocation of the embassy to Jerusalem oughta folks like the two economy's doing well, yeah, a lot of people do, but a lot of people are also going to be hurt by that. So you know what he hasn't delivered is this wall that he largely, you know, ran on and whatnot. So I think that those staffers feel as they reflect the president's grievance that the press has not given him enough credit and that's energizing for them. I think. And you know what's different about that versus other administrations, because every White House has staffers that feel beat down just by the car. It's different though in having talked to people who worked for George W Bush in president, former President Obama is that those two men, I think, engendered loyalty and inspired. There's Daf in a way that Donald Trump does not. So whereas I feel like a lot of the people in the current White House are driven to a certain degree like by the kind of grievance you talk about and by some of the president's policies, I don't necessarily at least in my conversations, get the sense that they are driven to do their best work on behalf of the man in who sits knee Oval Office in the same way that people who worked for President Bush no vomited will part of point. This is part of a strategy that right, like he is someone from his reality TV days in real estate days. He likes to have competing factions and interests. Yeah, working for him. And so like if you're doing that, you're actually aren't trying to inspire loyalty your. Trying to inspire competitiveness and that dick like another source in question. Like when you get leaks from sources, are you saying to yourself? Well, how is this faction of the White House trying to attack this other faction like the humor sent questioned sourcing, how do you work through that?.

"Katie Rogers, White House correspondent from New York Times. Thanks for being here. Oh, you're welcome. Jeff Bennett. White House correspondent for NBC news. Thank you for being here. It's a privilege. Fun fact. I worked with you both before and gosh, our paths diverged. But we're all living our best law. Yeah. So I was worried for the last two weeks about this conversation because I said, well, they cover the White House. And something happens. They gotta go. And then I was like, would I be able to do that thing? Or you know, when you're at dinner and someone's like, all right, everyone iphones on the table face down the first person to pick it up, pays for dinner. It was like, what's the radio of that? Well, for me, this is my day off. Oh. So I have to leave, which is why this data Katie is on full duty right now. I'll let you I had to take a few calls in the lobby on the way on the way up. You know, my phone rings, I might have to put us on speaker phone with with somebody source for that. But luckily just shout out to Michael shear, my colleague who's babysitting right now. Thanks, Michael. Yeah, in my absence. Yeah. How long have you both been covering the White House now? I've only been covering it since January. What? Yeah. Crazy crazy. So less than a year? Yeah, less than a year. I've been covering the White House for a few years. So I covered the end of the Obama administration for New York one, which is a well-known stationing dark line. And then when I came to NPR, was I a producer, but then a reporter I covered the White House for NPR for a few months and then jump. He's literally literally for a few months and then jumped to NBC news and I've been at NBC for eight months. Okay. Wow. So then my next question for you. Both is you've been covering the Trump administration, Jeff, since the start Katie for a few months in your time covering the Trump White House, what is the wacky craziest report. Story you guys can tell me without getting in trouble the story that you tell your friends at bars when they ask how crazy the job is. Oh. I had a story a couple of weeks ago that sort of illustrated to me how involve the president is in coverage about him, which is not unusual presidents care about how the media covers them, but I was on the Europe. Did you go on the uptrend? So I was on the Europe trip in. I got a heads up from a source at the White House who just had this Email that showed that he got on the plane at some point during the Helsinki Trump and freaked out because the first lady's TV was tuned to CNN and Lang threw a fit and now in got the military office involved like to make standard operating procedure, Fox News on all the TV's going forward. I mean, pause you real quick. You're saying Donald Trump was so mad that his wife was watching a network other than FOX that he changed the protocol. Yes. What I'm not clear on whether she was sitting in her area watching it was tuned to it was on and he flipped his lid. And I came in possession of a string of emails saying, oh, that story. Yeah, I just standard operating procedure going forward in the hotel suites, and that was actually confirmation at they sleep in different rooms to like first lady. Sweet sweet. I guess the wildest in the press cabin on Air Force One. It's all you can watch his Fox News..

"From NPR. I'm Sam Sanders. It's been amid today. We are talking politics because the midterms are coming up because it's always a good time to talk politics, but also because I am here in DC for a few weeks. So why not? In this episode I'm asking to very smart people. One very big question. What's it like the cover the White House in the age of Donald Trump. I asked that question and a lot of other ones to my two guests Katie Rogers and Jeff Bennett Katya White House correspondent for the New York Times. We worked together years ago at the Washington Post. You have heard on this show before and Jeff is the White House correspondent for NBC news. He's an old friend from our days together on the PR politics team. So I'm going to be honest here and just say, I love this conversation not just because I think the two of them are really swell, but because they told me so much more than I thought they would. They talked about their work. They talked about their lives outside of work. They talked about how. How those two things never stopped colliding. The also told me what it feels like for the White House press corps to be a character in the president's ongoing reality show, and they talked very openly about what they think the White House press corps is getting wrong. I went into this conversation thinking that I had a pretty good understanding of what it means to cover a White House. I did not, but I learned a lot in this chat and I think you will to all right, let's get to it. But just one more note, we tape this conversation last Wednesday, August twenty. Ninth. And because President Trump, you will hear some news break during our chat. All right here I am talking with Katie and Jeff in Washington DC..

"Hey, everyone welcome back to the daily DC. I'm David challen CNN political director. I'm joined in studio this week by my colleague Jeff Zony he's CNN's senior White House correspondent Jeff. I you heard me say as we were talking the first half of the podcast that I thought that the security clearance issue of revoking John Brennan security clearance and putting a list of other people who are now on morning that their security clearance may be revoked. I thought it was a pure distraction from the Manafort trial headlines that clearly the White House is not all that happy about, obviously from what we were talking about about Marissa's book in her charges, but that didn't make the sort of assault on first amendment rights to be critical and speak your mind if a president, any less chilling, it's still there while it may have been a tactic. There was a a subset of ramification here of what so many national security professionals have said, could be dangerous, chilling effect. On lower level folks who don't feel the need, feel comfortable speaking out against a president's policy decision? No question. And I think it absolutely was an attempt to change the subject. This is something that the president didn't suddenly decide this week, and we know that because of a bit of ham-handedness inside the White House, the statement from the president that White House press secretary. Sarah Sanders read to us in the briefing room and then released a printed copy later happened to be dated July twenty sixth, which is three days after they initially a raised the specter. This possibility three weeks ago didn't rand Paul voting this, oh, down to the White House or at least talk to the president. I believe by telephone at the time and said, you know, you should revoke these security clearances. So that letter was written three days later on July twenty six. It was announced this week, and then the president sort of complicates things even more by telling the Wall Street Journal in an interview that he was thinking about doing this last week, but he was too busy in Bedminster. Well, he played golf multiple times. The clearly had time and it was through this. I think that was the word perhaps internally it was. I mean, I would actually believe that, but I think the reality here is that what happened? If you take stock of what has happened by the end of this week by doing this, this is something that I think is. I mean, we've not seen before so many former national security officials, intelligence directors, Republican administrations, democratic ones have come out now by the end of this week in opposition to what this president did. So the list of critics who have very high credentials in high credibility is much longer now at the end of this week simply by doing this..
