Fresh update on "zoe lofgren" discussed on Stephanie Miller

"Said, we can not let those who attacked our capitol on January 6th, and those who urged them on to get away with impunity. That's what happens in dictatorships and all authoritarian regimes. Who said that? Oh. That would be Ted Cruz. I don't know. No, that was a really bad guess, though. Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton. Well, sometimes they say, you know, those guys say something and right after the insurrection like Mitch McConnell is saying that Trump's responsible and then like a week later going. I never said that. I didn't say that. Yeah. Have I mentioned all time mad about what happened? I mean, for many reasons, but specifically this. Yes. Specifically, the Supreme Court. Okay. You got to get your reaction to the G 6 hearings, though, when Cassidy to mean. First of all, the lesbian and me is like, is she mad at all? But she is pretty. Very magic. Also, we're dirty old men because she's 26, I think she calmed down and Stephanie. I know. Yes, it's what you were saying under oath. I also know that there's speculation running around now that Trump has been paying for lawyers with his stock of steel money. And that's why she jettisoned her lawyer because she wasn't able to speak and wanted to and got the new lawyer. Thank you. My understanding is. Well, Allison Gil tweeted, Zoe lofgren tells Anderson Cooper, some of the money Donald raised off the big lie has been used to pay for lawyers for witnesses, and it's not clear that arrangement is without coercion. That is a crime. That's another crime. It's witness to hampering. I mean, just like the things that like bless her heart, I know she's, you know, the Tiger from siegfried and Roy and we never know when she's going to eat one of them. But Liz Cheney, you know, at the end, when she was reading the witness tampering statement, she was like, we're going to investigate these. So if you are threatening witnesses, you might want to stop and then Thompson just scorched earth on the way out of the hearing the last hearing, which was just so beautiful. I mean, yeah, Cassidy Hutchinson, whatever she does in the future with her political career. And this moment I'm not going to call her a hero because that is a vast exaggeration, but she's doing what she needs to to protect the democracy of this country. Yes, and can I just say, I like your one of the Roy tigers for Liz Cheney, but I like our velociraptors better, and I'm just saying what's gonna eat the Tiger velociraptor. Okay. But it is. It is our weapon now. It'll be like a job. Wait a minute. Why aren't you turning around? Oh, no, it's frustrating, 'cause we're like, it was Cheney and that her next statement is, I've always been pro life and I'm like, okay, never mind. I think you and I are sick brain Roy in this example. We're all for her when she's doing what we want her to do. And we're both gay as Christmas. What a good little she's being, look, why is she kinda following? And now have your face is gone. And they always turn on you. The big cats always turn up. Yeah, right? Okay. AG also tweeted, I'm still hung up on the detail about Meadows, being on the phone with Jordan so much, how much Pelosi banned him from being on the committee and how Liz Cheney pulled away from him and said, you did this. I'm J 6, right? I hope we learn more in the final hearings about Jim's involvement. I mean, all we have to do at this point, they have the phone records. We know this. That's why Mark Meadows tried to sue Verizon. They have the phone records. At the timeline, all they have to do is look who he was talking to when he supposedly slammed the door twice and Hutchinson's face. It's probably Jim Jordan. Yeah. Yeah. No, exactly. If you go Lowell, who reports on a lot of this said, just incredible. This Trump Secret Service altercation story is distracting from the major news that Trump knowingly told arm supporters to march on the capitol and that Meadows spoke to stone and Flynn the night before January 6th and then wanted a pardon. That's the legally significant. The other person. Congratulations part. Was it assault or did he just put his hand on his shoulder or did he not? I don't care if he tried to choke out an essay officer. I don't like calling him that, by the way, is a Jewish person. It sounds weird, but the social service people. If he tried to choke him out with his tiny little hand, I don't care. I really don't care what happened, whether it was the beast or one of their other SUVs. I don't care. That is not the story. And that's what they're focusing on because they want to distract from the very damning testimony from Cassidy Hutchinson. Yes, Steven Bess said for I'd forgot this number, Dana, a 147 members of the House and Senate refused to certify the 2020 election on January 6th. How many of them knew about the planned insurrection? When did they know it and how many will be removed from office for their participation in this criminal enterprise? They are all involved. Right? Absolutely. And I hate to say that I don't think any of them are going to get removed unless they're prosecuted, and there's proof that they were actually part, you know what I mean? Because I just, I don't know, I'm pessimistic in that sense. That's a lot of Congress people that would need to be removed and I'd be shocked if it happened. This is interesting, AOC on this very subject yesterday. And I think there was also an awareness when all of this was going on. There was a feeling and a great sense that there were people on the inside. And we learned last week that there was one, if not more, several members of Congress who brought in some of these insurrectionists to essentially case the joint before coming in the next day. And to work with people over the last year to see them to have to have sometimes them confront you, knowing that they did what they did has been quite surreal, especially when they're not very intelligent. But she said, they should be expelled at the very least. A 100%. I think most they are guilty of seditious conspiracy as well. Let's start with all of the ones that specifically asked for a pardon. They should be expelled first and foremost. Yeah. Yeah, well, that's what she said. Let's listen to representative Aguilar get your take on the other side. Do you believe they constitute witness tampering? Yes, I do. And I think that that's something that should be looked at. By our committee and potentially by the Department of Justice, I don't think it's lost on anyone that the former president has a behavior like we heard yesterday.

Trump Proofing the Presidency With Comedian Hal Sparks

"Well, it's interesting. I want to get your take out. I mean, we talked about this Trump proofing the presidency. Jamie Raskin is pushed colleagues on the House select committee to ditch the Electoral College to protect future presidential elections against the subversion that Trump and his allies tried to pull off in 2020. Adam Schiff has indicated his agreement, but is more focused on reforming the electoral count act, which dictates the timeline for states to appoint electors and for them to subsequently cast their presidential votes, Liz Cheney and Zoe lofgren are also working on that. But I mean, if they had done their job and impeached him so he couldn't run again, but because they didn't do that, right? And remember Mitch McConnell said, you're having gotten away with anything. Yeah. There are courts. I mean, they're hoping they keep punting it going, well, we can't do it. Because the crazy Trump voters, but the DoJ, I mean, basically Mitch McConnell said, the DoJ should do it. He hasn't gotten away with anything. That's what we have criminal courts for. Oh no, not impeachment. And now here's one. Here's one thing that could solve a lot of this, whatever. Pass a law that gives it automatically 5 years in jail if you fraudulently vote on purpose and ten years if you deny someone their vote. Per charge, individual. If you stop anyone from voting or limit their ability to vote, artificially willfully and knowingly by brooming them from the electoral rolls or any of that kind of stuff, every person you do that to automatic ten years. And, you know, Trump was going to do it about monuments about statues automatic ten years if you wreck a statue will wrecking someone's right to vote in the greatest democracy on the planet, arguably would be something that would matter on that same scale. And I think it's one of those things where Republicans would have a hard time. They'd vote against it. The freedom caucus would vote against it. All these people would freak out because they know that they're the ones actually committing the fraud every time it's found. You find Republicans at the

"And provide means for customers to see both the data that has been collected on them, and with which parties it has been shared. In 2021, wyden also introduced a bill alongside Republican senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, the Fourth Amendment is not for sale act, which would close the legal loophole that allows data brokers to sell individuals personal information to law enforcement and intelligence agencies without court oversight. I want to limit the ability of either prosecutors or data brokers to go out and Hoover up all this private data to control women's private decisions, widen says. The introduction of both of these bills predates news that the Supreme Court seems likely to overturn abortion rights. But the draft opinion heightens the urgency for legislative reform, three democratic lawmakers, and nearly half a dozen congressional staffers tell time. Wyden's Fourth Amendment is not for sale act, as both Republican and democratic co sponsors. His other bill has zero sponsors from either party. On the house side, lawmakers have proposed even more sweeping reform in the digital privacy landscape, democratic congresswoman, and an issue, and Zoe lofgren, both of whom represent regions of California's Silicon Valley, reintroduced their online privacy act in November 2021. The legislation would give individuals the right to access, fix, or delete their data. It would also let Americans stipulate how long companies can retain their data and minimize what data companies can collect. The thinking behind this legislation says one democratic staffer is that if personal online data is not collected, then it can't be abused. SU's banning surveillance advertising act could also help protect digital privacy she argues because it would restrict advertisers from targeting individuals based on data collected about them, which, in practice, would make it less profitable for companies to collect so much data on individuals in the first place. This business model is harmful, as she says. Lofgren worries that the fact that abortion is spurring lawmakers and activists to call for improved digital privacy could reduce the odds of any of these bills passing by linking them to one of the most contentious issues in American politics. I've had bipartisan support for some of my privacy initiatives from the libertarians in the Congress, lofgren says, oddly enough, many of those so called libertarians are quite comfortable with seizing control of a woman's body and having the government make decisions for her and her family. Widen, however, is hopeful that the Supreme Court's impending decision will inspire more leaders to pay attention to the problem. He says, several members of Congress have approached him about digital privacy concerns since the draft Supreme Court memo was published. For a lot of them, he says, this is the first time they've ever really thought about it..

"I mean you know that's not really what you see what you're supposed to see when the department of justice brings an action or the ftc should be in the public interest. And you know agee's they're you know they're all over the board summer terrific and some you know. I personally have some questions about the in taxes. Who's currently being investigated for criminal activity. Yes yeah yeah so and and you know once once you expand that and sort of expand their power. You know you have well. Yeah i mean you can still under the under the existing antitrust. You're an ag. You can file but the question is can it be removed by the defendant to proper venue. You and that's now precludes that so i think it's really. It's not a good idea. Yeah yeah no i think. That's that's a good point. That hasn't hasn't gotten that much attention. well do you have anything else. You want to add anything else that we've missed in in terms of talking about about this discussion. I just think you know as i say that every single page. There's a problem with it. So it's you know it's hard to to single some but they're you know the the privacy implications for example in we address that in the scandal and bill you know and i believe in in Interoperability and portability. Because i think that is a right for citizens but in the original draft of her bill. And i like her. She's very nice. She's a relatively new member. N- i i also. She's serving with me on house administration committee to but it. It didn't even allow for the individual whose data was being exported to have consent in the privacy. Bill we wrote You know the privacy rights of the individuals data attached to the individual not to the competitor We did make some changes. They accepted an amendment from me on her bill. But that was not included in the cellini cellini bill and so the There's a requirement to share all this data with competitors. Well okay that apparently means that the customer data for example that an online retailer starting with a has about me. can must be with whether i want to be or not shared with a competitors in third party sellers and there's no capacity for the person whose data it is to object to that. Well you know. Maybe it's a mom and pop and iowa maybe it's a competitor in the people's republic of china The data vulnerabilities of probably different in both cases in but they're tweeted the same. There's no capacity to protect the data and In respect the data of each individual. As i say you know every page is a new mistake. Yeah that was sort of my reaction to. Because i've i've spent a lot of time talking about the importance of of interoperability and and being able to export your data from these services so i came into that bill hoping that i would like it and actually expecting i would and then i read the details and i was like no this just wrong i. It feels very focused on the belief that it has to be the company that is controlling everything and and doesn't even seem to recognize that there might be a better solution if the individuals have the have the power and control over there in all these bills when there's a tension between what's good for individuals versus accompany they choose the company and that's really not where i'm at now now me well i..

"You know. We're seeing this right now with with google and and the issue of third party cookies and i don't know how how much you've followed this. Google said they're going to do away with the use of third party cookies which keeps getting pushed getting pushed. But you know it's funny because you have you have one part of the world who saying like this is great because third party. Cookies are for privacy. And they're real issue and then you have a whole other part of the ecosystem saying but you know. Google is big enough to be able to handle that and all these other companies are not and so you know what's good for privacy might be bad for competition in some cases and i'm not sure how you balance. Those market will adjust. I do think if you just put the principles of Protecting the american public and it's not just From commercial exploitation also from political exploitation where peoples can their profiles whether or not anonymous. They is possible to know very much about each american and exploit that knowledge To their disadvantage commercially politically socially. And it's not good for society. Yeah what one question on on the. And i'm sort of of two minds of this kind of struggling through on the on the question of the mergers and acquisitions and i agree that i think you know. I'm all for the bill. That says more funding For enforcement And maybe raising the fees. The one thing that i do wonder about is that you know if we do make it harder for You know for some of the larger companies to buy certain smaller companies usually the ones that haven't been as successful. Does that have knock on consequences. In terms of you know companies are often funded. You know. and they're they're funded with the idea obviously being successful on their own but as a fallback the idea that you can sell it to google or microsoft or amazon or whoever is sort of You know it it. To some extent the investment more worth doing in the first place. And so i do worry at least a little bit. And i'm sort of trying to figure out how how you square those things with the idea that would that would that decrease investment and therefore in some ways actually decrease competition if you wipe out the ability or make it much more difficult for some of the. I think that's your point is well taken the jeffries bill would basically. If you really dig down into how the bills drafted it would prohibit mergers and acquisitions pretty much completely There is a very very narrowly drafted exceptions but there are so vague that They don't even include where there would be real competition. Just the potential of maybe there could be nascent. Potential competition for any product or service that includes a user's attention. What does that mean. i think you know. Basically the jeffries. Bill eliminates all mergers and acquisitions. That would be a mistake. Because you're right there. Are you know in the venture capital world. They're they're Funding people and there's got there's three ways out really You can you can be acquired can go public or you can fail and you know. Being acquired is not per se problematic unless you are squashing competition and if you take a look at. I don't want to get you know personal on because this is my point. My personal views there. For example facebook did some acquisitions that i think really did have the impact of preventing competition with facebook. And i think they were very overt. About what their goal was on the other hand. There can't be acquisitions that really..

"I do think you know you have a different opportunity when it comes to merger acquisition inquiries but going after companies to break them up. Assuming that the giant paul bill would never work. And i think that's a good assumption in terms of Due process protections you know what are the what are the real remedies. I think the real remedies are to curb the network effect by precluding the collection of data on individuals. As you know if people the european approach has been opt in opt out at misses the boat there is a public policy to prevent the acquisition of data whether it's supposedly anonymous or not and our bill prohibited the collection data for the most part. There are some exceptions beyond what is necessary to complete the transaction and to not hold it beyond that transaction that would change very much the how these platforms operate and none of them are supporting the bill. But i think they would not destroy the internet or the capacity to utilize the internet successfully. But they would deal with a lot of the problems that we're all seeing. Yeah i mean there are a lot of lot of different issues that that could be looked at and figuring out how to deal with the privacy issue is you know. There's a part of it. That i think is core to all of the other discussions like you know if there is a a a well-thought-out approach to dealing with the privacy issues. I think you're right that it does solve a bunch of or at least make the other problems less of a problem. You know i'm i'm still somewhat concerned about you. Know how how the various privacy bills play out in practice and you know we. We've seen obviously with gdp our approach that you know. It's it's worked in in some areas but in a lot of other areas. It's really just kind of reinforced google and facebook as the only ones who can handle all of the compliance. That's why i think if you don't do the complicated compliance you just have bright lines on what you can collect him what you can't collect and it makes it possible for startups as well as the giants to compete although we did do an exemption for very small businesses in the privacy bill you probably recall So i do think that that is a promising approach And as i say these companies are not going to be in support of that. But i think you know we have a bigger chance of passing that because the american public understands mean i asked How many people had taken advantage of the new opportunity. That apple has given to say. Ask this app. Do not track. I love that by the way And it's overwhelming. It's huge The american public doesn't wanna be tracked. They don't they don't want a profile made of them. Yeah yeah and i mean. The thing that that that i've been interested in is is whether or not there are other ways. Where in by the way that do not track probably be prohibited under these bills because arguably it would give an advantage to apple over its competitors. Well that's i mean that's that's an interesting point to to dig into as well..

"And as a ted lieu said in those weren't on the subcommittee didn't have the benefit of your hearings and we've had no legislative hearing on the on these bills so they were They were rushed They were. I got a rough draft marked rough rough draft not for distribution like two days before the bills were introduced about a couple of days before and i was not able to share them with the public as i was asked not to share them. The bills were introduced in the original plan was to mark them up the following. Tuesday i am told david i thought that was incorrect. And that not only wouldn't give time for members of the committee to fully analyze this but the the public had a right to take a look at what was going on and it would not give the public a chance to look at it and so the markup was postponed one week But there was a lot of scrambling around again no legislative hearing and it's just when members of other committees are saying you know that's not the way usually you do legislation and i think the product is. These bills are a product of a very poor process. I don't understand the theory because if you try and jam something through and it's it's as big a massive these bills are you're going to have problems bringing it to to the end and I mean these are in some ways. Embarrassingly written bills. I mean as i say. We're not doing bumper. Stickers were doing legislation and these bills are not well written. Yeah i mean that was. That was my reaction to which which also i mean struck me as a little bit surprising. Because i i know that the subcommittee had all those hearings and apparently spent all this time doing research and so i was. I was actually frankly. A little bit surprised That the bills came out the way they did. It felt like they. You know really hit only listened to to one constituency and hadn't really stress test the various bills and it seems at least to me somewhat embarrassing that stress testing to happen during a markup rather than than before But i i don't. I don't know the process as well as you do. So i've never actually seen a process quite like this in my twenty six years on the judiciary committee. So i think you know i mean. You've you've made it clear and things like your privacy bill and and other things that that there are real issues with the tech industry today. Are i mean what what is what is your take on on what needs to happen with the tech industry right now. Well i mean if you take a look at mergers and acquisitions clearly in my judgment..

"Out the deficiencies with the with the various bills seeking to amend them to fix many of the problems. Most of these amendments were unfortunately rejected but the process certainly highlighted many of the problems with these bills so here to discuss the bills and the process is representatives. so lovgren welcome back to the podcast. Thank you so. Have you been able to sleep that that that incredibly long actually did we started at ten in the morning and we went to about six thirty the next morning on. We took a brief recess in reconvened at eleven and went to three so that was a bizarre markup and i did get like two hours a two hour now between eleven which surprisingly helped but it was a bizarre process. Yeah so i mean. Let's dive in a little bit. I know you've been critical of certain aspects of the bill but but you certainly recognize also that you know there are real questions about competition and antitrust that need to be dealt with But from your perspective what. What are the sort of major problems with with these particular bills. Well how much time do we have. And i hope you caught her new. If you listen to the whole mark at some point i got unanimous consent and tech towards analysis into the record saying that you were character was one of the most accurate and insightful commentators on technology And i think there are issues when it comes to some tech companies a lot of tech companies But that doesn't mean these remedies are workable. Were appropriate In in any way. And you can start with the giant paul bill which is arguably the most extreme bill ordinarily in antitrust law breaking up a company as it's a it's a remedy in it's an extreme remedy that is sometimes necessary We broke up ma bell and it stimulated innovation because they were precluding through their monopoly any kind of innovation competition in contrast to that history breaking up. These companies isn't a remedy in this bill. It's the goal of the bill And it it defines who's covered in davidson. Cellini is a friend of mine. So i i don't dislike david i just don't like bill But he was very honest when talking about the paul. Bill it identifies these four companies Maybe five depending on whether you agree whether microsoft is included and if you meet the threshold the definition then you're broken up that's it end of story one of the members. I can't remember who it was at this point because it was maybe four five in the morning asked this question if breaking up a company is really a taking which it probably is under. The constitution is their due process. Job all built. If you're one of these companies you're broken up. And i think it's their constitutional issues but also. Why is that the goal. The goal is competition. Right yeah and that's that's been sort of my concern with with all of these. These approaches that. How much of this is driven out of actually trying to get more competition. And how much is driven out of spite against these companies congressman giant poll outlined in the her statement. Hurry interactions with amazon. That she found very disappointing. I you know. I'm sure that i don't challenge that. But that can't be a basis for legislating and we're not doing a bumper sticker here. We're doing Legislation every word matters.

"Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm mike mass nick with digital journalism thing. The on way tight control. Get to of the in case you've been living under a rock lately or just never follow policy news in which case. I don't know why you're listening to this. Podcast you're probably well aware that there are many efforts underway to both bring anti-trust cases against the biggest of the big tech companies and effort in congress to perhaps change antitrust law mainly target those companies to get my own beliefs out front. I've made it clear that. I'm all for efforts that create more competition to cut back on the power of the biggest companies. Because i think it's desperately needed but i am skeptical. That antitrust is necessarily the right tool for doing so mostly because i think it's focused on punishing big companies rather than creating the ecosystem to encourage more success from competitors even so after months of apparent. Study a group of five. Antitrust bills were released recently which were clearly designed to put a target on the back of google facebook apple and amazon specifically with some ambiguity if it applied to microsoft as well the bills seem to have been mostly written in a vacuum at least from my perspective with little understanding of how these things actually work. Or what impact. The bills would actually have and we've been highlighting some of the problems with them on tech dirt. We were also shocked at how the definitions in the bill seem to deliberately avoid having the new rules apply to a lot of other companies that arguably have more monopoly power than those big tech companies such as your local telco or giant credit card company Last week the house.

"I- cheese impeaching him. I there urban like seven different moments where this is the official impeachment below sea announced months ago. She said we're starting the official impeachment inquiry. Then and they do the inquiry then they take the official impeachment vote but it wasn't totally official because she wouldn't deliver the articles of impeachment to the Senate and she signed the official impeachment resolution solution and then her seven house managers delivered the official impeachment resolution and the fiction. That they're all living under right now. Is that this is a very somber serious day for America these House Democrats. They don't want to impeach the president they just have to because of that thing he did and we. You can't get too specific about it because you know it's very complicated. But he did something he the orange man was bad and so we have to impeach him. But we don't want to accept their giddy about it and they're eager to do it and they were ready to do it before they even figured out a tenuous reason to impeach him. The impeachment managers include include Representative Hakeem Jeffries from New York Val demings from Florida. Jason Crowe from Wisconsin Sylvia Garcia from Texas and Zoe lofgren Grin from California and then of course to the to impeachment stars. Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler though those are the people now it's worth pointing out of the impeachment managers of the seven impeachment managers. Six of them supported impeachment before the Ukraine whistleblower complaint. So they're all saying that they don't want to impeach the president but this matter on Ukraine that none of us can really describe because it's completely completely murky and and a hoax and BS. Nevertheless this this incident with Ukraine is the reason that they have to impeach trump except six of the seven impeachment. Women managers supported impeachment publicly before the whistle blower complain before anybody knew anything about this Ukraine phone call so it's completely disingenuous insincere. The most interesting person here of all of the impeachment managers is Zoe lofgren. Lofgren the reason she's most interesting is Zoe. Lofgren has been involved in three different impeachment processes. It's pretty amazing. She's involved obviously in this one. She's an impeachment manager on trump. She was in the House since nineteen ninety five so she voted on the impeachment of Bill Clinton and she was actually working working on the staff of Representative Don Edwards in the nineteen seventies when they when Edwards and she helping him were preparing the articles of impeachment Richmond Against Richard Nixon. Lofgren shows the problem here. The the increasing problem with impeachment and with our democracy say representative democracy or our republic. We'll get to the difference in a little bit. She shows the problem. We're impeaching too much or impeaching too frequently this is not the what the framers and the founders of our country had in mind we shouldn't it just be throwing out the president every time there's a new congress in charge and they don't like the Guy Democrats are pretending to be upset about the whole thing they love it and that is a big danger to our republic. We'll get to that in just one second. I I gotTa thank our friends at Robin Hood because you know we just got an excellent trade. The deal signed today. That's actually the big news of the day. We'll get to that wonderful trade deal and what it means for all of our bottom lines. But you've got to think about your personal bottom line.

U.S. House to send Trump impeachment articles to Senate

"Let's get to impeachment we finally have some updates Fauria and I didn't leave the show with this today well number one because I want to make fun of the Democrats during the debate last night and all the craziness that went on there and then we had local issues because the legislative session is officially under way there a lot of issues that are being debated in Tallahassee that will actually impact your lives here in the state of Florida so we wanted to get some of those and of course during the course of the Senate trial we're gonna spend plenty of time on all of this but I do want to update you on where things stand today speaker Pelosi signed a house resolution to transmit the two articles of impeachment against president trump over to the Senate that followed the house approving resolution today appointing house managers for the impeachment trial representative Collin Peterson Democrat from Minnesota was the only Democrat to vote against the resolution the vote triggered the start of the Senate trial which has been delayed for nearly a month after the house approved two articles of impeachment against president trump one for abuse of power in the other for obstruction of Congress polo C. named seven house managers house intelligence chairman Adam Schiff house judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler representative Val Deming's from here in Florida Democrat from the Orlando area representative came Jeffries representative Zoe Lofgren representative Jason crow and representative Sylvia Garcia I know hello see couldn't do this she had to include chef and Nadler among the house managers but it would have been much better if she didn't because they're just viewed in such a partisan light and you've got talented people bound Deming's she's gonna be good she's the former police chief of Orlando and she uses out during the hearing as well she did so you've got talented people that you could have handled this you don't need shift or Nadler because nobody's really gonna pay much attention to what they say there's just a view bait in about those two I can see where the mines take a step back from being doing the actual trial and maybe there is yeah behind the scenes manager that's how it should be I don't know you think shift is gonna take a step back from the cameras are now learn mom the with all the incoming that chef and never took from the president maybe plus he said like and I'll let you go over there behind a smart move I don't know if that's what's going to happen but still Lofgren she's been this is our third impeachment trial yeah you were mentioning this earlier she was a staffer during the Nixon Nixon and the run up to the Nixon impeachment was actually in peace okay and then she was in Congress on the house side when Clinton was impeached now she's one of the truck the the managers of the impeachment I'm sorry if you've been around for three if you were a staffer during Nixon you really still need to be in Washington DC well I think it goes to the depth chart the dancing clothes he was well yeah yes yes yes I'm looking at a trial of it you know fantasies over here yeah that's how I'm viewing rice really she was there for Nixon to still there but now that that makes total sense to have somebody like that we I kinda knowledge and experience on your house manager staff list in terms of what's next there's gonna be a few days a housekeeping and procedural work Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is expected to hold the substantive part of the trial opening arguments in the queue in a period it's gonna hold that until Tuesday in order to give house managers and trump's defense team a couple of days to prepare on Tuesday the Senate is expected to vote on an organizing resolution the will lay out the terms for the trial it seems like they're going to model it very closely to what happened in the Clinton impeachment they always need a live witness issue yes which if they get the for Republicans across over right right then we'll see what happens then and also the the new reporting today is and how will the Democrats agree to a **** for tat as far as witnesses of they get right hold on yeah well they allow hunter Biden especially if they think under by it has nothing to hide you know we'll see how that plays out and let me get to that aspect several key Senate Republicans are insisting there be specific language in shoring of votes on whether to call witnesses and request documents not that witnesses and documents are allowed but just that there's a vote right on it aides to some vulnerable senators and moderate states including senator Susan Collins have said this language is crucial we know Susan Collins probably once witnesses and it sounds like Mitt Romney once that as well I've heard Lamar Alexander Makowski is always one to watch the numbers are close a democratic leadership aide told Axios that they will force votes on subpoenaing key witnesses such as trump's former national security adviser John Bolton acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney Mulvaney senior adviser Robert Blair and top White House budget official Michael Duffy as well as relevant documents at the very least that will for some vulnerable Senate Republicans to cast tough votes lot of politics being played on both sides as to be expected some important numbers to remember Republicans would need fifty one votes to dismiss the case out right that's not gonna happen there's no way you're gonna have vulnerable Republicans like a Susan Collins vote to dismiss the case will not happen Democrats would need fifty one votes to call witnesses that's possible Republicans currently hold a fifty three forty seven majority in the Senate so Democrats would need for Republicans come over to their side to make the numbers work I think they think they have the votes I think they probably have the votes to at the very least John Paul at the very least I think you're gonna want to he he you're gonna have some Republicans are gonna want to hear from the former national security adviser one important note about today's resolution it gives managers authority to submit additional evidence that the Senate that's key because last night impeachment investigators at the house Judiciary Committee new evidence obtained from left partis Giuliani associate indicted by the Southern District of New York harness is gonna appear with Rachel Maddow Alan M. S. N. B. C. in a little bit and he basically says everything he did some of which was not good he did at the direction of the president Rudy Giuliani that's what he's gonna say tonight's in there there's a lot to one pack based on some of what we've learned about partners over the past couple of days so they're certainly going to be a back and forth and debate over what needs to be explored during the course of the Senate trial on the controversial decision by pelo C. to hold the impeachment articles for three weeks this is what she said on ABC's this week this past Sunday she said the tactic has produced a very positive results she said quote we feel that is produced a very positive result in terms of additional emails an unredacted information that's come forward Bolton has said he will testify if subpoenaed by the Senate I don't think the delay matters all that much in the big scheme of things you had much McConnell who held his ground he was not gonna be bullied by Nancy Pelosi should just didn't have the leverage some new information did come out including reselling the past couple of days although look this stuff it's not going to change the outcome of the trial the only thing that can really make this difficult for Republicans would be of John Bolton testified and have really really damaging information it also have John Bolton testify and he puts forth information favorable to the president and then it's a no brainer we don't know how that's going to go I think Bolton's announcement that he was willing to testify was the most important development that took place during the three weeks the pelo C. held the articles of impeachment what I go back to is the house were rushing through the impeachment process that was a mistake because now they have to push the Senate to do what they should have done I thought they went too fast if this was such a serious matter then you take your time and you do a thorough complete process instead they rushed through the articles of impeachment and then they kind of had to wait to see if more information will come out and then they learn one of the people they should of try to issue a subpoena for John Bolton he was maybe interested now in talking to the Senate it's it's just a mess and plus on top of this all it puts Senate Democrats running for president Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders in closure but some of the top spot she delayed this whole thing policy for three weeks and now at a crucial time for them right before the Iowa caucuses they're gonna be caught up in the Senate trial that's really at the end of the day that's where the biggest impact is the biggest impact is on the democratic primary and how it's gonna fact Iowa if I were those Senate Democrats I would not be thrilled with Nancy Pelosi at the moment your thoughts on the whole I hate you up to this point I have to disagree one thing is this notion that the investigation

"Help. But notice the phrase Russian collusion has vanished from the democratic talking points and left a void in the narrative. Chairman Nadler said that in negotiations the Justice department had proposed a compromise that would allow him and ranking Republican Doug Collins to view the unredacted version, but not to discuss it. With other committee members Nadler said that was unacceptable of you echoed by California Democrat Zoe Lofgren, the concept that it would be reasonable for Mr Collins, and is to be the only one among our members to review this material is astonishing to me, for example, Mr. has been a member of congress nineteen seventy nine that he would not have something to offer if he reviewed this is just not correct. I've been a member of this committee since nineteen ninety five I would have something I think to offer if I review this. So I hope that we can get past the idea that what's been accepted. A proposed by the department and then withdrawn is acceptable outcome. But Republican James Sensenbrenner was kansin said making the Muller report more widely available would inevitably result in it. Leaking to the press all of us know that is really impossible for the people who work on this Capitol Hill to keep a secret.

"I mean, we do have tools at our disposal peaking within the concerts or two week crafted in nineteen seventy six the statute that he is in my judgment misusing. We have the capacity theoretically to amend that. But we also have ultimately the power of the purse, which we will be exercising in our appropriations bills this June to prevent misuse of that statute. So I I think much as I think his misuse of. That statute is appalling with wrong. I don't think it is an article with impeachment. And I also think that the third branch is going to step in and sort that out as well.

"Meeting. You know, sometimes we just get to know each other better. So it's it's a great delegation now, forty six strong, the biggest the biggest the Democrats are bigger than the entire delegation of any other state. And we're really we're twenty percent of the democratic and one thing I've been wondering about the California delegation. Is there northern California southern California rivalry, not really not really? No, it's interesting. I know historically that was true. But that has changed a lot over time. You know? It's a very diverse delegation. I think that we tend to agree on most on most matters. Obviously there are things that are regional. But for example, when we had a problem with the Trump administration on a transit project in the bay area on the southern Californians rallied around as well. And when there's an issue, it is a disaster in southern California, we Wiley round, so we dry, and you know, stick up for the whole state. What's it like having speaker be from the delegates grade, she comes to almost all our meetings, and you know, there it's not the case for every delegation. They sent have lunch with the speaker of the house once a week and bring up things of interest that she she also seems pretty good. She she keeps an eye on California. But she also seems like she doesn't she tries not to favor. The absolutely absolutely. But in a we. Have seven new members. None of them has served public office before. So they're in a they all bring something, you know, special. I mean, they're smart and have great experiences, but not a legislative experience as none of that have served in a legislative body. And so, you know, they're they're bringing new views, and it's it's been fun to work with them. Several of them have ended up in key positions. Katie hill is the liaison to the leadership TJ Cox cheering subcommittee on oversight. So it's you know, it's great. Can I ask which which of them have particularly impressed. You know, you can't you can ask. But I'm not gonna say they bring something different. I've been I generally watching the freshman. I've been struggling by how many of the new members are really they hit the ground running at hearings. No how to answer the ask questions. You know, how to answer our questions from the press. Didn't it's been actually kinda surprising. How many of them seem ready to go though? They're very smart, very as really an impressive group. But as I say on the floor. They've got something to say, but they might not know, what are the words you say to get recognized like the speaker. So you help them out little things like that. So circling back is at the type of thing that you know, as Adleman chair that you can you can help people on things that they need to know the policy issues, but some of the arcane house issues. Yeah, you can help him on them is that the type of thing I feel like the California delegation. In addition to the freshman has a lot of veteran members to folks who've been while you're really long time. So what are some of the advantages as Dem's retake the majority after a fair number of years? Adamant we've got a mix we have several chair persons. We myself. Cheer veterans affairs cheer financial services, and then a bunch of cheers of subcommittees. So that's you know, gives us a leg up in terms of forming policy. But it's a it's also something that is challenged us that we're working on. We've got people who've been here on the senior level some in between and brand newbies. So how do we help? Our newbies. Get the experience they need to take a leadership role sooner rather than later of their capable. But had we help them find their sea legs in congress. That's something. We're actively working on because it's important normally because they are very impressive. But we want California to have the benefit in the country to have the benefit of their expertise. While as as as California goes, the recognition wreck prep. The cock. It goes. So does the right. The broader the VAR caucus. So put you on the spot for a final thought. What are you most looking forward to next as as the majority sort of gets running? I really would like to get some some progress made on immigration. We're doing a lot of damage to the country by failing to take very simple steps to reform the laws that are not serving us. Well, and I know I'm going to be frustrated. We're not gonna be able to everything I want to do. But it really is doing tremendous damage the country, and I hope that we can make some progress. All right. Well, thank you so much for your time ending. This was fun. I'd like to thank you all for listening. I'd like to thank congresswoman Zoe Lofgren for being on today's podcast.
