The voters called for it, and now the City Council will begin formulating a Citizen Police Oversight Commission this week.

That's all ahead in the next 15 minutes. Good morning. I'm Denise know Cano. Phil Kasey is at the editor's desk. Mourn out on our job story. K Y W. Ian Bush spoke with CBS News White House correspondent Stephen Portnoy about what's next for the Senate trial and what's going on with the filibuster. Patrick Leahy is the Senate president. Pro temporary is Theseus, senior Democrat in the Senate, and the longest serving has been there since 1975. He will preside over this trial, which is not out of the historical norm for a a new impeachment trial. Remember, there've been a couple dozen of them typically of lower level officials, judges, Cabinet officers. There have been, of course, three trials of a sitting President Donald Trump was one of them last year. But because he's no longer a sitting president, the chief justice did not feel obliged. To serve, it seems, And so instead, the Senate will proceed under its normal process. What's interesting is it seems that Vice President Kamila Harris could have had the opportunity to preside over the trial is the president of the Senate. But instead it's going to be the senior senator in the majority the president Pro TEM, and that is Patrick Leahy, so he will preside over the Senate. What's important to remember is the presiding officer to Senate trial mainly just keeps the operation flowing. The Senate is both judge and jury. Let's stay in the Senate to Stephen, We We've been talking about this power sharing agreement that The Senate majority leader and minority leader, Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell been trying to work out. Have they done so? And where stands the filibuster? Yes. So this question about sharing control. This really has to do with this the composition of committees now that the Senate is split down the middle 50 50. I mentioned the fact that Kamala Harris is the vice president is the president of the Senate. Therefore, in a position to break a 50 50 tie in favor the Democrats in theory, and therefore the Democrats have control is it Chuck Schumer became majority leader Late last week. The minority leader, Mitch McConnell, however, it was sort of dragging his heels on this organizing resolution that would set the composition of committees under Democratic control. He was holding out for a promise from the Democrats that they wouldn't try to change the Senate rules and bust the filibuster. Well, the top Democrat Chuck Schumer said yesterday. He wasn't gonna give in to Mitch McConnell's demands. But McConnell said, Ah ha. There are two Democratic senators who are saying that they're not going to vote to bust the filibuster. So I'm gonna take that as a win. And I'm going to say that we have an agreement and I'm gonna you know, lift my objection to the organizing resolution. We could proceed. Under this power sharing agreement, And it seems so. The White House was signaling also that the President Joe Biden does not believe that the filibuster should be done away with at this point, and that's how things are going to perceive. Trial of the former president should start in the second week of February. It's 10 18 and Philadelphia City Council will begin the process of creating a new citizen Police oversight Commission this week, which was approved by voters back in November. K Y. W.

Some specifics are still being worked out, such as how commission members will be selected, and Jones says he expects the bill will be a work in progress right up until it's voted on.
