Senate Democrats considering their options off the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She passed away Friday the age of 87, leaving a seat open on the high Court. Republicans have a majority in the Senate, and they're expected to replace the liberal icon with a more conservative judge. It was reportedly Ginsberg's dying wish to not be replaced until after the upcoming presidential election. On Saturday, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer reportedly told Senate Democrats that if Republicans will forward with the nomination that quote nothing is off the table. For Republicans. We need to vote against the nomination for Democrats to block the appointment. The battle stems removed made by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell back in March of 2016 when he bought the vote on President Barack Obama's nominee, saying at the time the winning candidate in that year's upcoming presidential election should make the appointment that winter wound up being Donald Trump, who fill the late Justice Antonin Scalia seat with Neil Gorsuch.

"Sarah Huckabee Sanders, but she bailed out at the last minute saying she had to travel. And was going to reschedule for next weekend. Then the next day, her people followed up and said she was canceling all of her media for the foreseeable future. Oh, my God, so she won't be joining us on the Mo Kelly show. This is just me speaking. I suspect the heat of the Bob Woodward book is making it difficult for her in her interviews because she's probably being asked aspects about that book. Instead of her book, But that's just my assumption. But I bring this up to highlight how all weakened due here on this program is invite people on. They have to say yes and then they have to show up. Even I get guests suggestions every week, and we really don't need any help is faras guest suggestions or how to contact them or who we should have on But you know you send them to us. There are people we've been working on for years. Years. It's a process but the guest has to say yes. And then that guest has to show up. We were looking forward to hearing from Sarah Huckabee. Sanders. I mean, we really work, but, you know, say, lovey. Now on to the business at hand. And I'm only talking to the de mes and bite and supporters right now, if your ma ge hold tight, or, you know, hold up a moccasin and and cheer and celebrate. You know you might have some fun with this, but I'll get to you in the next segment. But right now the dims need a dose of reality. I'm talking to you dims hear me. Justice Ginsburg, As you know, passed way yesterday at the age of 87. Not surprisingly, it's dominated the news partly from the homages and the specials they put together about her life and career. From her civil rights impact to her feminism and so forth, and partly You to the speculation is what's gonna happen. Next is this comes down right before the election, The politics involved the political implications. To me, Hear me out dims. This is very simple and you're not going to like it. My thoughts sound familiar to something I said before they should because the situation has not changed. Remember during the break Cavanaugh hearings I told you in advance how the story was going to end. It didn't matter what Kavanaugh was accused of how many times Chuck Schumer pounded on the desk. Cavanaugh was never not going to be confirmed. Because of math. Because of partisanship. Because of where we are as a nation. Impeachment. He paying attention dims impeachment. I said the exact same thing you can check the audio. My record has been clear. I have been consistent where a symbolically impeachment meant something. In the sense off the message that it would send and it would weaken the president. Big picture. There was never ever any chance of Donald Trump being removed from office. That story was not going to end any other way. There weren't going to be any witnesses called. And even if there were the trial final vote, the Senate trial was not going to be ending in a conviction. Why The math was what the math was in the Senate. It hadn't changed. Fast forward to today. Do you want me to tell you how this upcoming fight against having a nominee confirmed right before the election ends? Do you really want me to tell you or can I just point you to my previous commentaries? This isn't wishful thinking. I'm not saying that I'm rooting for this. And I'm not saying I'm rooting against them Give you analysis. I'm not even trying to create some dream scenario for one side or the other. Yes, I hear the mock a folks cheering in the background. I'll get to them. But this is about you. This story ends one of two ways. At least you have an option this time. It either ends with a confirmation right before the election off whatever name president Trump submits, or it ends with a confirmation right after the election in the lame duck session off whatever name the president submits. It's either or The nominee could be Mickey Mouse or even a dead Mickey Rooney. Mickey Rooney is dead, right? I think he is what the point is this? It doesn't matter dead or alive. If Mickey Rooney is the name that President Trump submits, he will be the next Supreme Court justice. A third in the first term of President Trump, because, say it with me. Math. You will have Republican senators who will say publicly and have said publicly already, quote. I think we should wait until after the election, close quote. You know, after the election just means November, 4th. Doesn't mean after the new Senate has been sworn in. It just means we'll wait until literally after the election and do it with the same math. In the lame duck session. I could be wrong, but I doubt it. And I don't want to hear about what Lindsey Graham said last year last week or last night. I don't want to hear about Lisa Murkowski. I don't want to hear about Susan Collins and Mitt Romney. None of that matters. It really doesn't This is about power. For a generation. And no criticism of hypocrisy or not putting country over party. All that matters. The Senate majority leader has worked for this moment. This very moment his whole professional and political life. Donald Trump will not be president. Five years from now, no matter what. Withy Skoda's picks. These federal judges he's placed will outlive McConnell will outlive Donald Trump himself and most of you in earshot of me right now, may even outlive me. This is about say it with me generational power and legacy. Mitch McConnell isn't passing this moment up. Even if it means Republicans might lose some Senate seats in 2020. So what? So what? This is not really about 2020. This is about 2050. I can't stress this enough. Hear me? Dims. This is about three things. This is about math. This is about legacy..

'The Uterus Collector': Horrifying Allegations Against Gynecologist at ICE Detention Center

"We're not a report on new allegations of mistreatment of immigrants held and trump administration ice facilities. For Context over twenty thousand immigrants are currently detained. The new details here are difficult but significant a nurse and four lawyers representing several unnamed detainees in Georgia. Alleging that quote women are routinely being sent to a gynecologist whose left them bruised and performed unnecessary procedures including hysterectomies, the nurse who served in the Ice Facility Don Wootton filing the complaint with the Department of Homeland. Security Wootton says these extra operations are happening even as detainees were not getting things like Standard Cova tests and other medical care needed. The complaint states virus safety precautions ignored. And not only that. But that the way they're doing it attention make social distancing impossible of course, violating the administration's own guidelines plus reports of officials misleading about data on the number of infections. Ice Reports in that now, contested data forty-three cases of virus at this facility as of Monday and we WANNA play for you the nurse who just spoke about all of this is disturbing allegations to NBC's Jacob Sober off today. You're quoted in the complaint of saying that's his specialty. He's the uterus collector. Is that how people refer to this doctor. Dessau the detainees referred to this physician. They refer to him as I headed to tainted S. she said, well, what is he doing this collecting uteruses? And I just looked at her puzzle. Because I didn't have aunts. Federal rules authorized internal watchdog to investigate. We should know president trump though he's been ousting several such federal watchdogs that he views as simply to independent. But. Trump administration's ice agency responding that it's reviewing this allegation, but it adds anonymous unproven allegations made without any fact checkable specific should be treated with the appropriate skepticism and quote there. That's not all. There are many critiques of the cost of privatizing government especially in areas like prisons or detention, and you should know this facility is not really completely under the government's control but rather run through a private company LaSalle corrections which has not responded. NBC. News is request for comment. And there's a ton going on right now from Cova, to the recession to the wildfires the campaign. But we asked tonight should also be a priority in Washington. The information is recent but I can tell you the very top Democrats in Congress. Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. Now, calling for an investigation on this very issue for saying, whistle blower is alleging a staggering abuse of human rights. That's a fitting point to reflect on because whatever you think of immigration policy or people that are in detention or even imprisoned. Under our system, they all have equal human rights that must be respected.

The 'Keep Nine' Amendment

The KDKA Radio Morning News

The 'Keep Nine' Amendment

"A little idea of exactly what your organization keep. Nine. Is it? Nine is a bipartisan organization that is working to persuade Congress to propose what would be the 28th amendment to the United States Constitution That would say the Supreme Court of the United States is nine justices. Be the shortest amendment in the Constitution, and it would prevent the idea that some people are talking about which is to APAC. The Supreme Court the Supreme Court, is it our most important institution? The United States Constitution is an amazing document, and it creates a balance between the executive legislative and judicial branches. And the Supreme Court is the branch that has been called on time and again to resolve disputes between the executive branch and the legislative branch and to resolve issues that otherwise might Tear the country apart. So it's a critical institution for the survival of American democracy. And the most important element of the Supreme Court is that it is independent. It can't be controlled by the president. It can't be controlled by Congress. And throughout our history. There have been people in the presidency and in Congress that I wanted to destroy the independence of the court. And it may be the most important issue of this election. Whether or not this election results in the election of folks Who want to preserve the independence of the Supreme Court for the election of the folks who want to destroy it. Now the president Any president has no control over the Supreme Court, but it can have a lot of influence because let's face it. President Trump has two picks to the Supreme Court already and Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. There's still two picks from President Obama's era. There's two from the George W. Bush era on there, There's two from the Clinton era on there and one remaining one from the George H. W. Bush era. So let's just Those ugh that if President Trump is reelected, he could get possibly two, maybe three more Supreme Court justice opportunities coming up here, with Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Clarence Thomas, both rumored to be considering retirement. I think Stephen Breyer as well somewhere down the line, but in the next few years, so that proves the importance of the Supreme Court and how much influence we could have for 50 years going forward from the Trump Eric. Correct, Absolutely. But there's an even more fundamental issue more than 100 years, the Supreme Court In an independent institution. Congress has not changed its size. But if after this election we end up with Ah, somebody that wants to pack the Supreme Court. We could end up with not just the names of people on the Supreme Court changing but the nature of the Supreme Court. If the Supreme Court became a political football between the two parties, with one party packing it when they were in charge and another party packing and when they were in charge, we would lose one of the most important institutions in the country. And that independence is mohr important, then who is appointed and we're very fortunate right now, in that both candidates appear to say that they don't want a packed court. Trump is attack court packing. And Biden said, I don't want a packed court either. But the problem is that there's some people on the Biden a team, including Kamala Harris, who said in the past that they like the idea of court packing and the Democratic Party platform. Includes language that says they favor court restructuring. And Senator Chuck Schumer has said that he might restructure the court if the court doesn't rule in ways that he likes. So there's a threat out there. And our appeal is two candidates in both parties who say that they don't want to pack the court to endorse the Keep Nine Amendment so that we are permanently protected against efforts to pack the court. And we think that's a critical issue that voters ought to care about because it will show what kind of governance we're gonna have over the next four years. If we have people who support to keep nine Amendment, we can rest assured that the court is not going to be packed. But if we have people who won't support to keep nine Amendment, we've gotta worry and so candidates for Congress candidates for the president. We think we ought to be asked. Do you support to keep nine Amendment because if they would pack it like you mentioned that would lead to political chaos The Supreme Court is always seen is at the institution that is more rational and steady and less fashionable, right and throughout our history, the biggest beneficiary of an independent Supreme Court are minorities because it's the Supreme Court that protects the unpopular rights of minorities. Every once in a while, you get a wave in Congress, so we got to do something. People say Well, it could affect minorities and sometimes in Congress. They don't care and the classic example of the Supreme Court standing up for minorities was almost 200 years ago, when Andrew Jackson decided that he was going to see the land of the Cherokee Indians and deport them all. The Oklahoma and the Supreme Court stood up and said, it's wrong. Unfortunately, at that time, Andrew Jackson said, Well, how many regiments does the Supreme Court have and ignored their ruling? Now? That wouldn't happen today, The Supreme Court has enough power to resist that kind of defiance. But if a president could say, Well, I don't like your decision. I'm going to pack the Supreme Court put my own people on the rights of minorities would be AH, gravely at risk. There were other presidents in the past have threatened to stack the Supreme Court as well. Back in the early 19 hundreds correct right. The most recent memory was Franklin Roosevelt in 1937. He had just won an overwhelming victory in 1936. Hey, had overwhelming majorities in both houses of Congress. And so he decided that he was going to use that opportunity to put some of his allies on the Supreme Court because at the time they were ruling against some of the legislative proposals that he had made and what he didn't expect was a outpouring of public opposition in both parties. And it basically destroyed his ruling coalition in his second term, and our message to both parties is don't go too far proposed your policies past them in Congress, but preserve the independence of the Supreme Court. Because if you try to upset that you're risking all the other items in your agenda. How did they come to nine as the final number in the Supreme Court? Well, it's very interesting history for the first almost 90 years of American history. The Supreme Court was, in fact, a political football and the Republican majority after the civil War was stuck with a Supreme Court that had been appointed by pro slavery president prior to the civil war, And so they basically was a naked power grab. They expanded the size of the court put their own people on. And you can argue that that may have been the right strategy after after a civil war, but very soon thereafter, the tradition grew At the Supreme Court ought to be independent was a tradition honored by both parties after 18 69 and people thought, you know people would honor tradition and in 1937. When FDR said, I'm going to pack the court, it was a great shock to people Now. It's interesting that FDR also broke another long standing tradition in American politics. He ran for a third term, and there had been a tradition ever since the founding of the republic that presidents only ran for two terms. And what happened in that case was, there was a public outcry and the 22nd amendment to the Constitution, which limits presidents to two terms was a response to Roosevelt's running for a third term. And our view is that just as the 22nd amendment put into the Constitution, a longstanding tradition, a new 28th amendment that says the Supreme Court of United States should be nine justices is the right way together. NT the independence of the Supreme Court for the future and is keep nine dot org website the best place for people to go to either support your idea for an amendment or just get more information. Absolutely. And if you go to that website, you'll see an E mail address where you can email us with specific questions or if you want to get involved in this effort. We're hoping that in the next two months, an army of citizens will AH demand that candidate for Congress for Senate and for the White House will answer the very simple question. Do you support to keep Nine Amendment?

Harris on vaccine: 'I would not trust Donald Trump'

"There's more debate over a possible vaccine for Corona virus before the election. The White House's insisting political motivations won't play into the race to develop a Corona virus vaccine. This comes as the CDC notified states to be ready to distribute one toe high priority groups as soon as November, 1st two days before the election. The date has raised concerns among many that the fast track approval will come at the expense of the public safety as President. Trump continues to tell the vaccines arrival while campaigning for his reelection. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer remains a skeptic, saying there's too much evidence pointing to the Trump administration pressuring the FDA to approve a vaccine by Election Day. The Democratic vice presidential nominee is not saying whether she will get a Corona virus vaccine if one's released ahead of Election Day. Pamela Harris says she wouldn't trust President Trump's word that a vaccine was safe and effective. Speaking to CNN, she said, it would have to be from a credible source of information.

US unemployment rate falls to 8.4% even as hiring slows

"The blue numbers came out jobs numbers as we do every week, and the Jobs numbers that have come out in for August. The United States are added 1.4 million jobs in August, but it's still down 11.5 million jobs since the covert 19. Virus hit unemployment rate fell to 8.4% from 10.2 in July. It's below 10%. What does this mean? Well, let me get an expert on that. Think it not robbery to come and break it down for us every day. Every week Now. He had done it every month. Even when he was the Deputy secretary of Labor under President Obama. He's now senior fellow at the University of Virginia Millar Centre. Of course, I'm talking about Chris Loo. Chris Thank you for coming on. Always right. Tell us what up and down side of this job of figure for this week mean? Well, I think you put the right spin on it. The right take on it. The context we during the pandemic the first couple months, the pandemic has lost 22 million jobs. We've now gained back about 10.5 million jobs. So we're still 11 million in the hole. So This is an economy that slowly crawling out of a really deep hole. But I think there's a couple things that are noteworthy. One is the pace of job gains is slowing down, and I know that Hard to imagine when you're creating 1.4 million jobs, but that pace is slowing. Ah, and I think that certainly speaks to the fact that a lot of the economic relief that's been verv IDed has stopped. I think what's also concerning in all of this is that we're starting to see Lay off that we originally thought we're going to be temporary now becoming permanent. There's now 3.4 million. Not permanent layoffs on those air jobs that are never coming back, and then we could just look at that. News headlines and you see major companies that rely on you know, travel and tourism, most notably things like American Airlines, MGM resorts and track all saying they're cutting thousands of people, so there's more reason to be concerned about Maur, temporary layoffs becoming permanent. So look, anytime you create a million jobs. That's a good thing. But boy were in a really big hole and again we continue to see these disparities between ah white workers and people of color who are out of work or Men and women, So you know it's it's. It's a good report, but it's not a great report. And what? Uh what is the breakdown? Do you know in terms of the ethnic groups or racial group? So again? This is not surprising. We continue to see that The unemployment rate for white workers significantly lower It was 7.3% for white workers. 13% for black workers. Hispanics 10.5% Asians 10.7% So again, you continue to see black unemployment. You know whether times are good or times are bad being basically double what it is for whites. And I think what is concerning as well. You know, we know that when there are tough economic times low income workers, people of color all are often the ones that are released from their jobs first. They're also sometimes the people that are hired back the latest they have left in general, lower wages less saving, so the impact of this hits them more directly. And again as we look around the country we've got, you know, eviction moratoriums that are That are expired. We've got food bank lines that are getting longer and longer. So this is a tough time right now, For for people of color in this country Now there is no specific Plan laid out by this administration on how they're going to clothe that race. Gabbard? No, I mean, you know, Look, there there theory is always we're going to look at the stock market and you see the president again tweeting this week about You know numbers on Wall Street and and I think it continues to show kind of the disconnect in this administration's policies. I mean, they're the hallmark of what they can claim Credit for economically is passing. A tax cut in 2017 that essentially gave a trillion and a half dollars a tax cut. Most of that went to corporations and very wealthy people. Very little of it has come backto working class people, and they really have no specific Economic plan Right now, on the pandemic of anything you've got. People like Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, who are pushing for more money, and, you know, oddly, this is the president and Senate Republicans don't want that extra money. Yeah, they passed the Heroes Act in the house. They still have passed no second stimulus bill that would help workers help unemployed people in the Senate and then went on their break like it. It doesn't matter. Yeah, no, And you know the president make it made a big show of signing these executive orders to extend unemployment benefits. But that was just a couple 100 bucks for a couple of weeks. That's really not going to make a meaningful difference is most people and left out of all of this is all of the other things that were being negotiated. Like money for state and local governments so that police and teachers and firefighters out laid off money for school so that they could put safety Hard up to allow them to reopen money for additional testing. So there was a lot of other things on the table. That kind of got derailed when the president decided to go it

"chuck schumer" Discussed on Alyssa Milano: Sorry Not Sorry

"I have the opportunity to have a conversation with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and we talked about the cares act. Which is the stimulus bill? Congress passed in response to the corona virus. Senator Schumer was the lead negotiator for the Democrats and had to make the difficult decision to block passage of the initial bill. Because of huge problems in the Republican's proposal these included a three billion dollar bailout forbid oral lack of oversight and less help to the people who needed it. Most blocking the bill was politically difficult but corrected. These problems and more. This work was so very important and Senator. Schumer provided insight into the process of getting it done on Capitol Hill this morning. Lawmakers are racing to pass a trillion dollar economic reform capital senior. Tonight a massive stimulus. Bill that would give financial relief to American emigrant span jobless but some party leaders claiming the bill is friendlier to cooperate. Each Senate Democrats have a plan that called workers first. We want to help to go just to the people who are losing. Their jobs have to pay monthly bills. Not just a one time shot of money and then what do they do next month when they have senators are back to negotiating this morning after they failed to agree on a nearly two trillion dollars twice rejected Senate Republicans earlier version of the bill arguing that it lacked proper oversight. The new version has an inspector general and an Oversight Board Minority Leader Chuck. Schumer said the deal would include one hundred fifty billion dollars in aid to state and local governments on top of support for hospitals corporations and unemployed workers. This is a good ending twists and turns enormous. There was some down moments. But as you know those of you who kept asking me and we're going to get a bill. I always had faith. We would first of all. Tell me how you're doing. Where are you? Are you isolating Brooklyn yes. I couldn't wait. I was in Washington for two weeks working on legislation. It was one of the most intense experiences I've ever had so at midnight on Wednesday night Thursday morning when we finish the legislation. I got in the car at midnight and drove back to New York for four thirty. Am I am staying in our apartment in Brooklyn but because my daughter and son in law and my one year old grandson. Their son doesn't have much room in. There's there with us as well and it's great to have everyone together and daughter in her wife comes over all the time for dinner there nearby but chasing a one year old around the house. I know my brother has a one year old. And they're just getting stir crazy. Let's talk about the stimulus. Bill I mean how did it come to be? Let's talk about some of the things that were included that you fought to remove look first administration's been behind the ball for a long time whether it's on the testing kits in late January. I'd suggest that they call for national emergency. Took them over a month to do it. And of course. Now we're paying the price with ventilators. Bp gloves masks and all the things we need here in New York and people need around the country so they've been behind the eight ball when it came to the stimulus bill. Because I knew they would be so stingy. I when they proposed a billion and a half dollars you know this was just on the medical side to deal with vaccines and stuff and they took half of it out of five hundred million out of Ebola which is still raging in Africa. That we better get moving ourselves so we proposed something that we called workers. First Marshall Plan for hospitals. We propose that instead of helping the big corporations I we help all the innocent people who are losing their jobs for no reason and make sure they're made whole and even more importantly that we get the healthcare resources we need right to the Front Lines Mitch. Mcconnell and the Republicans they first began to talk to us and then all of a sudden on Saturday night. They pulled out of negotiations and put in a Bill. That was basically just two things did have something that was okay which was direct money to people but they propose twelve hundred dollars for middle-class people in six hundred dollars for poor people and it was a one shot deal. You know maybe it would help you pay your rent the first month but what about wants to three and four and then they proposed a four hundred billion dollar sort of bail out to corporations with no oversight no one would know who got the contracts. What the contracts were for months and months and months so we blocked there bill and that was hard very hard one of the hardest decisions. I've had to make because people were clamoring for help but I realized in our caucus realized in everyone from Bernie Sanders to Joe Manchin from the most liberal to the most conservative was united here. But this bill was not gonna be with us for days or weeks but months and even years and Kenya proposed in one. We proposed a Marshall Plan for hospitals. One hundred fifty billion dollars to go to hospitals for ventilators. Pp and equipment for new doctors and nurses for new hospital beds. And we made it flexible. So let's say a nurse retired at age forty to raise their kids but she wanted to come back giving the emergency. There would be money to watch your kids. Who are no longer in school to do that. So that was number one. They have proposed much much less for hospitals second. We propose something very novel unemployment insurance on steroids and what it said was if you were laid off through no fault of your own. Let's say you're a waiter to restaurant no-one showing up at the restaurant or working in a small business. That had no orders. The Federal Government would pay you your full salary or very close to with four months till July thirty first. That would get the money where it's needed to the people who were laid off etc and what we propose there which I thought was really pretty smart. Was We propose that the company's laid you off with instead furlough you which means you'd stay officially on their payroll although the federal government was paying your salary but you keep whatever benefits they gave you health or whatever and most importantly because you were furloughed when God willing this corona virus crisis in school urges over the businesses would be able to reassemble quickly resume? Which still have its cook. And it's matronly and it's waiters and waitresses and all on the payroll and they could jump right up so we propose that we propose that every business profit and nonprofit there are a lot of nonprofits would get interest free loans. We would be paying their personnel expenses. But what about mortgage? What about utilities? What about these interest free loans? And if they kept a high percentage of their employees ninety percent or so they those loans would be forgiven when they hired them back so those businesses could stay in existence and we did it for middle sized businesses and larger businesses to not the fortune one thousand but everybody else and finally this four hundred billion dollar corporate giveaway. We proposed really tough oversight. At every contract they signed would be made public all of it not parts of it in fourteen days I worked with Elizabeth Warren on this who is really good at the oversight of the old tarp and we propose several layers of oversight with Subpoena Power. So they could find out what's going on here and we also said to any business that wants these loans even the big ones that you get your money forgiving. If You keep all your employees are very close to all one final thing forbearance no foreclosure on mortgages no eviction of renters who can't pay and that's six months so that's your people from losing their homes or losing their apartments much credit bill we held out and the Republicans had no choice but to vote for it and in a Active real I pars and statesmanship this bill which is probably the largest governmental undertaking since probably the great society. was passed ninety. Six enough in our Republican friends realized that we had to be large and strong so I guess what I'd say is quick. Helped bowl tells is on the way now. We have to make sure the administration which is not known for its competence implements properly right well and especially since Reagan. It's been the Republicans. Core identity took cut social welfare programs like cash assistance and food stamps. You know and healthcare while De regulating businesses and pushing for things like 401k. Accounts over pensions. Do you think it's fair to say that? Both the human and economic toll of this crisis is worse because of those policies yours are social programs. We're not prepared for this Corporations got away with far too much and I hope that this reversal which certainly happened in a big bold way stays with us because you know in this new world where technology is so dominant and IGUCHI forces but US pressure on people. You need a government that stronger and that helps people not help just the big boys. What you said is accurate and I think that it may portend the future in a better way than we've had in the last thirty years since Reagan. You're right well. It doesn't help that. This man goes up there and implies things like healthcare workers in New Yorker stealing medical supplies. I mean who does that young and and the unpreparedness and the erratic -ness of the presidential leadership is just a call ragging about your ratings and all of this while people are dying well well nurses and doctors terrified to go to work so I just WANNA ask you in A. This'll be my last question for you because I know you're so busy. What is your message to healthcare workers and first responders who are literally risking their lives. Right now to keep us safe. Thank you is my message. These people are amazing. You know after nine eleven we so so embraced and loved those. The police the fire the construction workers who rushed to the tower. These are the same people but their healthcare workers. They have rushed to danger. They have put their lives at risk for the common good and they are beautiful and wonderful and we treasure you. We embrace you and we're going to support you this Marshall Plan for hospitals. If it's administered correctly by the trump people should get to the help. You need quickly. Thank you very much senator. Schumer for all your work and I just I have so much respect for how hard congress been working on this bill for the people hold each other tight stay safe.

"You keep getting that and so that gives the money where it's needed to the people who have lost work not just throwing it out of an airplane so even millionaires can get it and to boot because you're just furloughed when the God. God willing this crisis is over. You will be able to go back to work to the same company we can reassemble the restaurants in the small businesses. And everything else. That is now dormant back together because everyone will stay with their employer. The third thing they have four hundred billion dollars for corporations there was no oversight for the loans that trump or the secretary Mike give we have real oversight in Fact Elizabeth Warren. Who's been very tough on? This helped. Every contract they make has to be made public within seven or fourteen days in the their bill. There was no publicity of it for six months. So we'll know what these are. We have an Inspector General. Who with subpoena power? Who can go after them and get to the bottom of it so we will be able to keep a real I. If there's any misdeeds given out this corporate money fourth money for small businesses they'll be direct loans to small businesses who have no income now and they will be able to stay in business and we will pay keep their pay their employers at their salary and fifth money for states and localities. The Republicans didn't want any. We got one hundred fifty billion dollars so New York state will get not only five or six billion itself but the city will get two billion all the counties will get money the MTA in New York City gets four billion dollars mass transit throughout so. This is a very good bill. We've gotten a lot of things in it. None of which were in the bill. The Republicans put on the floor onto on Sunday. But we came together. We passed it. We improved it. It's not everything everyone wants. But it's a great start and we'll keep at it will Senator Schumer this is Megan. Hello it's nice to see you. This isn't necessarily directed at you because I think I've been on the record many times saying that I I'm a fan of yours and I think you actually play pretty fair ball on both sides. Might I was really disappointed that This bill took several days of back and forth It was reported that Democrats were trying to use the negotiations to expand collective bargaining for unions and tie aid to airlines reducing emissions. There's video of Nancy Pelosi. All over the Internet talking about how people are concerned about the environment while they aren't bailing out airlines. I personally think this is another conversation for another time while Americans are suffering and scared. Why do you think there's partisan politics being laid rail some of it wasn't partisan you know when the bill that was put on the floor and Mitch McConnell? Did it on his own without talking to us. Had No oversight of this corporate lending didn't have enough for the hospitals didn't have anything for state and local governments. We said we should wait a day and try to get that in. And some people got mad. But most people understood as for these extraneous provisions. None of them are in but we do say in some. Don't like it if you're going to give money to the airlines. They got to keep their workers. They can't fire all the flight attendants and everyone else. They're getting federal loans that go to go to the workers. I that kind of labor protection belongs in the bill with my opinion but the way but there was a part of the bill that was trying to help I believe the Kennedy Center in IT and again. I think I'm glad the bill is done. I'm glad you guys stayed up late fixing it. I just think going forward I would implore all politicians and again. I wouldn't necessarily direct this at you but people like Mitch. Mcconnell take partisan politics out of this as much as possible just his legal especially New Yorkers are so scared but we have to come together and we did and this bill will pass today and hopefully money should be flowing into New York and the rest of the country early next week. So that's very and the money for like ventilators which are show short of desperately needed. A Senator Schumer this sunny democratic. Hi Hi senator. Democrats did secure a provision to block trump's family businesses from receiving loan money under the programs. And that's something that I've been discussing and and I'm very concerned about that. The other day trump refused to say if he would bar his own company from received stimulus money. So are you confident? At this point. He won't find a way around this. No we've written a very strong provisions not just for trump but certainly for him but for any powerful official a Cabinet. A senator or congressman if they own a business or their family owns a business they should not get these loans. The people in office should not write legislation. That benefits them. So yes. I'm quite confident. It's a very strong provisions and we've also said the money shouldn't to foreign companies. Some of these companies are overseas. They pay no taxes. They shouldn't be getting these loans. Senator Schumer this is Sarah and it's really great that the government has stepped up to offer these protections to affect Americans. But do you have any advice to people who are looking to help on a grassroots level and what are the best ways that we can be helping each other at a time like this because I think so many of us are sitting at home saying what can I do as individual to give back to help my own community one of the worst things about their two things about this crisis that are like none other? I lived through nine eleven. I lost three people three friends of mine in the towers. The difference here is twofold. I were so uncertain. How long is this going to last? What are the actual steps? We should take. I called a friend of mine. Who's a very smart doctor? And I said if you get this one so you immune from it. They said we don't know yet because it's so new. So the uncertainty is very troubling but second the isolation New Yorkers Americans. We like to come together during a crisis. And we've done that very well now. We're all isolated so one of the things I'd suggest actually is just because you're isolated. Stay in touch email. Talk to people be on the phone setup chat rooms. Those kinds of things can deal with a little bit of the isolation that we feel and encouraging we all know healthcare workers just encouraging them. They're going through a nightmare now because of the overburdened healthcare system. We've given them now a lot of money and a lot of help. That'll start coming once. This bill passes but lending support to them can be very very important. We talked earlier about you. Know Who's saying that? He wants the country. It's what be by the way. Yeah well anyhow. Anyway Isa's less than three weeks away in your opinion. Is this realistic? Is it a good idea? And is it time for us to just really start implementing the things we need to do to save ourselves rather than listening again to politicians? I know no disrespect. But I'm I would rather listen to Dr found cheaper than than here this again. So what I'd say two things here number one. This kind of advice should come from. Healthcare professionals not politicians. They know things best and second. I'd remind the president and everyone else. The best way to get the economy going again is to beat this virus and we should be doing everything we can right now to beat this virus to let it go let it subside. And then we can get our economy going. If you just don't do the things that doctors recommend it's going to be with us a much longer period of time. Well our thanks to Senator Chuck Schumer. Thank.

"Daily podcast from WNYC. I'm Brian Lehrer. It's Friday January seventeen. Here's a contrast worth keeping in mind as the Senate gets ready to launch the trial of Donald Trump on Tuesday first. Here's thirty seconds of Senate Minority Leader. Chuck Schumer yesterday after all. The senators took the oath of impartial. Justice with Chief Justice Roberts. We've all been sworn in by the chief justice of the United States to serve as judges and jurors in the impeachment richman trial of president trump. When the chief justice walked in you could feel the weight of the moment I saw members on both sides of the aisle visibly gulp the weight of history sits on shoulders and produces sometimes uh-huh results? You never know will happen. Senator Schumer yesterday but never mind content for a minute even the tone of seriousness. The weight of history sitting on people shoulders that Schumer referred to as palpable in the Senate Chamber is the source of mockery on the other side. One example out of many that I could have chosen congressman. Doug Collins of Georgia. Remember him he was the Republican leader in the house. Judiciary Committee impeachment hearings last month. After Democratic Chairman Jerrold Nadler opened with a similar Miller message of gravity one day collins replied like this. I do not believe no matter what we'll send today. And even what has been said. This is not a solemn occasion when you go looking thing for something for three years and especially this year since January. You ought to be excited when you found it but they can't because I know what is now having took me last night but I was thinking about it. Why do we keep calling on this a solemn occasion when you've been wanting to this ever since the gentleman was elected Doug Collins last month just some context especially only been listening to Democrats talk but but there's an article on politico called how Schumer might get the last laugh on impeachment trial? Let's talk to the writer. Politico congressional correspondent Burgess Everett Everett. Happy Friday Burgess. Thanks for coming on of course Brian Nick or do you think the contrast in those clips just with respect to their relationship to this as a moment in history. The story tells us something about the procedure to come. Yeah I mean it definitely does right like the house inquiry especially in those open hearings. I mean it was really partisan people getting revved up There's lots of you know arguing cross talk all of these things that we sort of expect from Congress and the Senate trial there's really strict rules Decorum that at least yesterday. Which is the first day of the proceedings was being really strictly observed basically? Nobody was on their cell phone. Nobody was talking There was no interrupting or anything like that and so there really was this sort of difference between the two moments there. He's a contrast. I do not know whether that will continue. I mean this trial is going to probably become sort of a routine pattern for members. I think that sort of Solomon the will decrease the longer the trial goes. And once you know Tuesday there's GonNa be a bunch of partisan. Votes is our expectation and Chuck Schumer will be forcing some of those and I think that will sort of bring us back to the faith level of Democrats versus Republicans and predictable partisanship. Go into some of that because your article about Schumer says he will force a series of votes designed to squeeze vulnerable Republicans. What's the series of votes going to be? Well so basically what's happened here is is twenty years ago. The Senate leaders got together and wrote a framework to begin the trial and what they did when they did that as they punted this question of witnesses. This is new evidence until later in the debate. Schumer is refusing to that time. And so what's happened. Is Senate majority leader. Mitch McConnell said okay. I have the majority. I don't need you Senator Schumer and went to his members and now he has the votes to open the trial Without Democrats. And so what's going to happen. Schumer is going to try to amend what McConnell trying to do by saying no. We needed an agreement on witnesses. Now not later McConnell pumping this question for a couple of weeks and so who knows ultimately what happens with the witness question but initially Republicans including people like Susan Collins of Maine. WHO's on the moderate end of the spectrum are going when do vote against what Schumer is saying which is bringing mick? Mulvaney bringing John Bolton subpoena documents related to the withholding of Ukraine aid and requests of of investigations into Joe Biden and that vote will fail. But there's a bunch of Republicans up for reelection and tough states and Senator Schumer sort of sees this as a win win win. He may not get what he wants initially but he thinks the Republicans are taking bad votes. Politically saying we don't WanNa hear new evidence. Will you mentioned Susan Collins here. She is in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine calling four witnesses. In the Clinton Senate trial there is indeed a mountain of evidence but there is also a record trafford that is replete with conflicting statements with significant gaps and with unanswered questions. We need not to answer those questions in order to fulfill our duty to do impartial justice. I want to be fair to the president. I want to give him the opportunity to have his lawyers questioned witnesses. If in fact we get to that stage Susan Collins in nineteen ninety nine. How does that compare with a position? Today she was definitely stronger on witnesses back then I would also say. She wrote a lengthy statement yesterday thing. She's likely to support a debate on witnesses and the way this is going to boil down is after the opening arguments and after the question and answer period there will be a vote on. Should we have a debate on witnesses or should be on the trial now and she's saying she's likely to vote. Yes on having witnesses wind up consistent she may wind up consisted. That's right but I would say rhetorically it. It's definitely a little different. And I think that reflects how American politics has changed in the last twenty years I would also say that she ultimately voted to acquit Bill Clinton. who was the president of the opposing party to quit? Yes that's right so oh I don't think we should necessarily assume how she's GonNa vote on any specific witness at this point but I would also say she's the person who's under the most pressure right now on the question. She also pointed out the other day. That Chuck Schumer voted against witnesses in nineteen ninety nine so can we say both sides default to their parties interest on less public opinion pushes them not to. Yeah and I think that you know Chuck Schumer was in a super unique position. The nobody's in right now right. Nineteen Ninety Eight. The house is conducting its impeachment inquiry. He's on the Judiciary Committee in the House votes for the inquiry and he voted votes to impeach Saris of votes against the against the Korean votes against impeaching the president also running for Senate seat then so he has run as somebody who wants to stop the the Conviction of Bill Clinton in the Senate So he had his own politics in mind when this was all happening. And when you look at Senator Collins who's up for reelection in Maine later this year she's got the same thing going through her head. Yeah and in fact I think in that unique Schumer position from them. He was in the house. He got elected in November nineteen ninety eight to the Senate for the first time. The trial began in January of nineteen ninety nine so he went from being in the indicting party to A member of the jury in the Senate yeah and he actually ran has A candidate to acquit. So he he saw the politics and that's that's he was running running against an incumbent Republican senator who he thought was being wishy washy on this and so he was saying I'm a vote to acquit So he was playing partisan politics. It's unavoidable to come to that conclusion. is they're going to be a separate vote on admitting new documents versus new witness testimony testimony like after these left Parnasse. TV Interviews Republicans might succeed in the court of public opinion in dismissing him as an indicted fell in trying to save save his skin. But you can't dismiss the documents. He released showing things like claims of surveilling ambassador. Marie Ivanovich which already led the FBI to open investigation yesterday. So do you expect separate votes on witnesses versus documentary evidence so on Tuesday when Schumer forces these votes. I don't I don't know if he's going to separate these things out into different individual votes on the floor witnesses you want and the documents or whether it's all going to be together in a package saying thing we need to subpoena documents related to Ukraine So there will definitely be votes on documents whether they are singled out and specifically typically sort of targeted by the Democrats who can force votes whenever they want to SORTA remains to be seen. But what there is is there's a pact among the fifty three Republicans to not vote for what Schumer wants on Tuesday. Maybe after they hear the opening arguments on the question and answer period they decided they need to hear more but they're not going to entertain Matt this next week. Let me ask you about this idea. Being floated by some Republicans for what they're calling witness. Reciprocity if the Democrats get to call Bolton and Mulvaney and maybe others the Republicans get to call their witnesses. Hunter Biden maybe Joe Biden and maybe the whistle blower who's behind that idea So the the leading edge of that sort has been Senator Rand Paul from Kentucky And senator crews from Texas has also been pitching this Senator Cruz had a private meeting senator McConnell and a handful of other senators where he pitched this Senator Paul has been talking talking to Republicans at the lunch sort of threatening them with. We'll don't think you can just bring in John Bolton you're GonNa need to vote on these other folks to what this really is is an effort route to make that witness. Vote Fail and stuttle the debate over witnesses move it basically saying rand. Paul's basically saying to the people who we're up for reelection. You're going to have to take these really tough votes on Hunter Biden. This is not a vote if you're cory Gardner of Colorado is your Susan Collins Collins of Maine is not really a vote you WanNa take you know. Republicans Day trump voters are going to want you to subpoena Hunter Biden and Independence and Democrats. Democrats are probably going to think that doesn't make a lot of sense So it's basically a way to bring the pain to people in his own party. That Rand Paul is saying And it's really intended to head off the witness debate altogether. He told me in an interview this week. He doesn't want to have witnesses. But if we're GONNA talk about witnesses we're going to talk about witnesses the president well. How would that work? Would it be deal. Between Democrats and Republicans for witness reciprocity votes or would it just be a series of votes like Susan Collins Votes to hear John Bolton next there'll be emotion and she and the others will have to vote on one hundred bucks. I think the ladder scenario is more likely. I have a hard time envisioning Democrats wanting to bring in Hunter Biden. I mean their whole argument. Mint is here's people.

"Is set to deliver the articles of impeachment to the Senate tomorrow but Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell says his vote to dismiss is already in. So how are the Democrats GonNa make sure that there's a fair trial. How let's find out from one of the people you hear from the most Senator Chuck Sumer who joins us now via satellite eight Chuck Schumer? But uh-huh start with the guy in the White House re tweeted a doctored photo showing you and Speaker Pelosi in front of an Iranian flag lag dressed in traditional Middle Eastern style clothing with the caption the corrupted dams trying their best to come to the toes rescue. Now now why he would make it about the clothing or any of this. I mean is this what is what is the point of this. Is this this just him being dumb. Well it's I if it were just that it's you know I say. How low can the president go go and it relates to a larger point Whoopi? which is the foreign policy that he has created whether it's in North Korea or in Syria or in Russia can be summarized in three words erratic impulsive and egotistical stickle and? That's why we're so worried about what's happening in Iran. The mothers and fathers of America don't want another endless war in the Middle East and yet the president could force us into one or even more likely bumble into one. And that's why we're doing impeachment later in the week but earlier hopefully in the next day we'll vote on something called the war powers resolution which says he can't go to war increase large numbers of troops use in the Middle East without congressional approval. That's what our founding fathers wanted. They didn't want the president to be able to declare war on his own. Something out I just wanted to make sure that people understand you know.

"Doing that. So our strategy if we were today to say to Republicans come out and vote with us even though we have indeed even most of us haven't said finally our voting. We're waiting to see the evidence but make sure you vote to get rid of president trump. We wouldn't get anywhere but asking for witnesses something so reasonable and supported by sixty four percent of Republicans is I expect. We'll get a bunch Republican with us on these requests. I do I do is there. So this is this sort of Arcane procedural point an important one so you will be able to call those votes right. There's there is you have.

I didn't WanNa do this. It's with sorrow and doing this. There's a little less exposure. Frankly on the Senate Senate side just because of the way. The map works out next November. So how were you in the caucus thinking about what the goal of this trial is. What would be the benchmark for something that was well done and actually produced a just outcome? I E R bench our benchmark. Our goal is to get the truth. Let the truth come out. You know as Joe Joe Friday said on dragnet just the facts Ma'am that's all we want and we don't know what they'll be but we're willing to take the take the risk that those facts will not take the risk.

"Mitch. McConnell responded Democratic leader Chuck Schumer's proposal for the Senate to call call several witnesses who hasn't been heard from also subpoenaed documents in order to add the factual record for the Senate impeachment trial which will probably begin January. Perhaps it's not surprisingly the man who brags about being the grim reaper. Try To shut that proposal down speech on the Senate floor saying it's not his job to investigate. The Senate is meant to act as you J- in jury trial to rerun the entire fact crowning investigation because angry partisans rush sloppily through it. It's got. The Sun is job to leap into the breach in search desperately for ways to get the guilty that would hardly be impartial. Justice interesting that mccown would bring up impartial justice considering that McConnell also responded today the criticism that by already announcing on trump TV is coordinating with the White House and the impeachment trial. He has already abdicated his constitutional role which requires him to literally take an oath of of quote impartial. Justice Department. Your this is a political process is not anything. Judicial about impeachment is a political decision. The House made a partisan political decision to impeach. I would anticipate we will have a largely partisan outcome in the Senate. I'm not impartial about this. At Paul joins me now respond to all of this Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. WHO's a Democrat from New York? I I I WANNA get your response to that that statement this is not a judicial process. It's Flat Liam baldly a political process. He's an partisan and we have the votes on our side. Well George Washington Benjamin. Franklin James Madison would be rolling. There is the whole reason. Read the Federalist Paper Number Fifty Nine Alexander Hamilton. To choose the Senate would be that they are in the Senate should A. B. and they hoped it would be impartial and dispassionate and ready to hear both sides and make Gay Independent Judgement Mitch. McConnell L. is just turning everything inside out and it's easy to see why he knows that he is covering up facts. We have asked for something very simple. Not to rehash as McConnell said but four witnesses probably the four who most know what happened. They were eyewitnesses to everything that happened in the White House. They have not been heard from an all we've asked is that. They testified before us. McConnell has no good answer why they shouldn't so he he ties himself and all these knots to find his constitutional mandate at some moments. He says he's impartial. It's a moment. He says he's partial at some moments. He said he's public. Look at some moments. He said he's private. He's just twisted in a not because when we ask for witnesses and documents he has no good response and I am hopeful title. I am very very hopeful that even though McConnell.

"Washington where the state of our union is honoring our veterans while we here in the US express our appreciation to those who serve our nation. President Trump is in Paris gathering with other world leaders to Mark one hundred years since the end of World War One. But the president's trip abroad has not been without controversy this morning. French president Emmanuel Macron delivered. What appeared to be a scathing rebuke of the president's America first agenda as well as other forms of nationalism saying in front of the international gathering, quote, nationalism is a betrayal of patriotisms Saturday. President Trump through swift condemnation after cancelling a planned visit to honor American soldiers who died in the war the White House, citing inclement weather, the White House explained the weather made it unsafe to helicopter and logistically challenging for the president's motorcades and make the fifty mile drive outside Paris. But as images appeared of other world leaders honoring their fallen soldiers veterans and former White House. Aides criticized the American commander in chief for not having a back. Plan to attend the event. President Trump also facing a slew of unfolding crises back home a recount already underway for three races in Florida deadly wildfires ravaging California and warnings from top Democrats about a possible constitutional crisis after his decision to fire attorney general Jeff Sessions and replace him with a critic of the special counsel. Joining me now is Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer. Leader Schumer, minority leader Schumer. I wanna start with Tuesday nights election, big democratic gains in the house and some warning signs for Republicans in the suburbs. But Republicans in the Senate looked poised to grow their majority flipping three blue seats in Missouri, North Dakota and Indiana as well as potentially in Florida, why didn't the democratic message resonate in those states. Well, let me say this Jake. The election was a great victory for Democrats. Taking back the house with up to thirty five seats is you seven governorships lots of legislative races lower state legislative races that we picked up seats. So Trump in the Republicans are trying to say, well, but the Senate showed that we really one nothing could be further from the truth..

"Senate minority leader, Chuck Schumer. Senator midterms are just fifty days away and pulls her looking very good for you guys and they were looking really good for Hillary Clinton though as well. So how confident are you that the Democrats will take back the house come? I think we have a very, very, very good chance of taking back the house, but here's the real surprise. We have a much better chance of taking back the Senate than anybody ever imagined. I really think it we have tough map. You know, we have ten senators running Democrats in states that Trump won. But when you look at each individual state and see how strong candidates are, and I'll tell you the number one issue in America, whether you're in a blue state, purple state, or as it is healthcare people can't afford health care. They can't get healthcare. They know that Donald Trump and the Republicans are trying to take it away from them, and we are going to give them better and stronger healthcare. And it resonates not just in New York, but in. Every state, even the red estates of the country. So I am really optimistic that we can get this done. And Furthermore, so healthcare is an important issue jobs or an important issue. But Donald Trump has broken his promises to people, you know, he campaigned to sort of populous. He said, I'm going to be against the democratic establishment and the Republican establishment he gets in office. Any embraces not the average Republicans, but even the hard right. And they did these tax breaks for the wealthiest people. They wanted to repeal health care for thirty million Americans. They wanted to undo all our environmental laws. They wanna cut back on Roe v, Wade. They wanna cut back on any reasonable restrictions on guns. That's not what the American people bargain four near learning it. And guess we're there seem to be learning more than any other place. The very midwestern states that's won the election Trump back in two thousand sixteen, we'll. So it's good. We saw the Republican base I under. Stand thinks that this so-called democratic wave is fake news. Isn't that good? We shall see. I don't think so biting you in the butt, but the thing that that will make a difference either way is always the people you're right. It's about getting the people out to vote. That is key right people can people seem more energized than they've ever been before. Take Florida. Okay. Where there was just a election, the Republican turnout. These little technical was about the same just a little bit more than it has been in every midterm, right? The democratic turnout nearly doubled. So there's a lot. There's a view out there that Democrats and many moderate Republicans. Women are so upset not just with Trump's policies, but the way he's conducted the presidency, the narcissism, the ego, the divisiveness, the picking on people, the bullying people, Americans of all political. Likly Asians don't like that. And that's having a real effect as well. You're talking about a lot of new blood in the democrat party, which we love across the country, but there's also a frustration. I think with people like Nancy Pelosi and say, we need new blood in recent polls that show what was it fifty Democrats that are running for office. Nine of them are incumbent who said they would like it if she were not in power, fifty percent in another full of just Democrats in general work with Nancy closely. You know, she's the democratic leader, the house she is tough. She is strong and I'll tell you something when you're a leader, you have to sometimes take a bullet. A lot of leaders always say, choke, you take it, she takes she's strong in good. I think she's a good leader. Yeah, so so you've got Mitch McConnell on one side. The other. You never know. But the key to all of this is in your hands..
