How the U.S. electoral process works
"The congress is convened on January sixth. Okay. So three weeks before the president to a half weeks before the president takes the oath of office The new Congress is already in session. Okay and that is the Congress as voted by the twenty twenty elections right. So almost certainly will be a democratic house and looks like increasingly better chances that that may be a democratic Senate. In the event and then under the Twelfth Amendment the electoral votes have to come in by December fourteenth. If two hundred, seventy votes do not come in for one presidential ticket. Here's what happens. On the vice presidential side, you take the top two electoral vote getters and they go to the Senate where it is one person one vote. So that will be Mike Pence. And Joe Biden I, her Mike Pence and Joe Biden's running mate will go to the Senate and each senator just gets to vote and if you're asking does the Vice President Mike Pence get devoted himself to break the tie no, he does not the Twelfth Amendment and again just clarifying this is the twenty twenty Senate not the this is the twenty twenty, seven current she hasn't Tom may gap Social Gotcha Yep requires a majority of the whole number of senators that is fifty one. So in other words if the Democrats recapture three votes in the Senate. Right that would make it fifty fifty, and then the question is, do I think Mitt? Romney would vote for Comma Harassm Realism Warren or whatever? Over Mike Pence I think probably he would break that tied, right wow. So. But anyway, I but what happens to? If it's a tie you keep voting. UNTIL IT'S NOT A. It's not a tie right we might not have vice president then. If. That is conceivable and we'll talk about that in a second. Okay then. But. But that is how you get a vice president right? Pretty straightforward take the top two people not going to be anything weird none of the like there. There will be faithless electors I wanNA talk about the bucket decision we're going to do that on opening arguments. There's some nuances here but it, but it strikes me that The while they're states prohibited it strikes me that we probably will have faith faithless electors but doesn't matter for the. Top Top to top to yeah now. Here's what that same amendment right lasers. The next sentence here's how the president works. You take the top three electoral vote getters. Okay. and but it must be you must have more than zero right so it's going to be trump biden and some goof-ball. Juergen. Well No. Because nobody none of the faithless electors I think are gonNA vote for like the Libertarian or the Green Party or whatever. But like some goofball who's pledged to Biden. is going of vote like for Jon Huntsman or something, and like you're, you're GONNA get a third wildcard candidate in. Are there no states that will give proportional? Electoral votes if there there are states that do proportional electoral votes but like None of those garbage third party candidates are gonNA proportional and get an elector. So If, no faithless electors it will just be top two. If there are if electors, it will be top three by the way. Of like in the VP, choice if you had if if let's trump had two hundred, sixty electoral votes, Biden had a hundred and Jorgensen had one hundred I know you and actually take those top three right like it in the event of a tie, all the ties everybody who's tied for second place gets to go in the. The president, it says the persons having the highest numbers, not needing three on the list of those voted so. What happens if it is to sixty to forty one and one Literally we. Have No. IDEA. Seems like you'd have to flip a coin toss. Back it was eighteen to. Four when this? Maybe a dual. Possibly have to check it out. So top three go in and the votes are not as you as you suggested, are not one person one vote in the house but are in fact, each state gets to vote as a state comprised of its internal delegation. So in other words, right if a state has seven members of Congress therefore, four Democrats and three Republicans than that state will cast one vote for the Democrat assuming everybody votes on party lines.

Cybersecurity and the SMB
"But yet, you guys are geared towards helping small businesses from policy in ready perspective on cyber right. Absolutely. So I can tell you what we do I. Just WanNa make a comment on your diversity common because I'll. I'll make a a plug for diversity across genders races. The capabilities and skills are out there, but you have to work to find them So it's just a question. If you really believe in diversity than you have to build it from the ground up get people into the position to acquire the skills, and there's plenty of there's a diverse skill that's out there but you have to look forward. and. Not just be complacent and go to the usual suspects. So that's that's my plug on diversity it it. They are particularly in this space and it's important to for US particularly cybersecurity, which is about building things and creating solutions to actually get divers, thoughts and ideas in. Well, if I made injected diversity of opinion is so important because we. I I've been in the industry. You know roughly twenty some odd years and I feel like while we continue to innovate actually like the solving things is is the difficult part right and so every couple years ago we need a fresh perspective and what we have disabled people like this is not how it is going to happen. Yeah exactly. Exactly and so the the Cyber Readiness Institute in Two Thousand Sixteen I served as executive director of President Obama's independent bipartisan commission on Enhancing National Cyber Security, and it was a nine month commission as. We're finishing up the commission and the Vice Chair of the Commission Sam Palmisano, who's the retired CEO of IBM in I came together to talk through how do you carry this momentum forward so the CO chairs were all involved co chairs of CRI were all involved in the commission of Penny. pritzker served as US Secretary of Commerce at the time and she was oversight and then Microsoft participated on the commission Ivanka the CEO of MasterCard was a commissioner and the idea was to your earlier point that by convening senior executives to come together. And say small business cybersecurity is important. You create momentum for this purpose because small businesses themselves don't have the voice and don't have the resources for this and so if you take and convene large companies and ask them to share their best practices and resources to create free tools for small businesses, then you're truly helping businesses and you're also improving the security of global value chains. The point that Ajay Banga the CEO of MasterCard with all the time is you know we're only as strong as our weakest link and particularly for a company. Like MasterCard helping small businesses make sense but it's true of all companies are members include Exxon, Mobil, General Motors, city, those companies, all recognize the importance of cybersecurity for small businesses will, and I think it's interesting as cyber security We'll save matures and it's it's time as thing One of the things that I think we we keep coming back to insert recognizing pretty readily and it's happened a few times over the years where your smallest vendor, your most insignificant from but number of dollars you pay them vendor or partner. Tends to be one of your weakest. Of A cybersecurity perspective right. So if you think about the overuse example although I haven't heard it in a while of the h back company that you know. Is your is your H, back to provide a provider of choice for the six hundred, seventy, four locations you have right or or even or even the one like you've got a shop or something of live in an area that's got a lot of these small companies that are the warehousing and electrical companies and right. These are not like global companies but they've got somebody that maintains their grounds. They got somebody that does their payroll. They've got somebody that maintains the electrical and all that and I sort of wonder How much of the companies that? These companies rely on actually do. In terms of cybersecurity sometimes, they have such A. Wealth and abundance was an embarrassment of riches as the attorney in terms of how much data they have a about some of the world's largest companies. Blows my mind that they spent like. Maybe sometimes nothing on cybersecurity will holy cow possible. Well exactly and I think one of the things that you are calling attention to, which is so critical as that supply chains are not linear. There are parts of your supply chain that people don't think about it's the catering company. It's the HVAC company and there was a story in the. New York Times by Nicole for over a couple of years ago about an oil company in Texas that was firewalls, six ways to Sunday. But they were breached because the militia actors were paying attention to the it department and saw that at six o'clock at night typically, they would download the menu from the Chinese restaurant around the corner and. To in order to order, and so they put them out where on the Chinese restaurant. because. They see a lot easier to breach
Fresh update on "pence" discussed on Serious Inquiries Only
"Yeah that was a scenario I on their WANNA. Give a shout out to Chris Smith on facebook who asks, okay. What if he is the galaxy brain level conspiracy theory I guess and I don't mean that insulting like this this is them coming up with like because people are very scared Here's a scenario that maybe is possible that they wanted your opinion on, which is what if trump direct certain states to not certify their election results so that the electoral college can't come up with the requisite number of votes and the vote is thrown to the house to be voted but by the way side note on this. I saw Oh, thrown to the house. That's great. But then there's this I think there's this weird rule that you can tell me about where it's. Not just the house, it's the state delegations in the house. So like it turns into the Senate or something like what what is that about? It's so much weirder than you think so So let's walk through this right because I sure I think this is fascinating. This is all governed by the twelfth amendment. There are two different. They're two different procedures. If no ticket gets to two hundred, seventy electoral votes, there's a different procedure for how we pick the vice president from how we picked the President I have no idea like I. This is one of these I would love to you know be an originalist and thus have the power of time travel assuredly that I that everything. I. Believe is something that the founding fathers believed I would love to know what the hell our founding fathers were thinking. When they passed, the Twelfth Amendment here's how it works. I'm going to start with the vice presidential candidate k because this is the easiest one. At Ella Street, how easy this is you're going to be like well, then why did they pick the stupid process for the President So we covered this on a the the congress is convened on January sixth. Okay. So three weeks before the president to a half weeks before the president takes the oath of office The new Congress is already in session. Okay and that is the Congress as voted by the twenty twenty elections right. So almost certainly will be a democratic house and looks like increasingly better chances that that may be a democratic Senate.

Google Pixel 4a Has Ushered in a New Era of Excellent Cheap Phones
"Google announced the Pixel for a phone with a blog post with some with superbeets. The Pixel for a has a five point eight, one, inch, twenty, three, forty by ten, eighty, sixty hertz led display snapdragon at seven thirty g system on a chip six gigs of Ram one, hundred, twenty, eight gibbs gigs of S. two point one storage and a thirty one, Forty Mil. Battery a single twelve megapixel camera on the back and an eight megapixel camera on the front and a USB. USB Port and a headphone Jack as well phone. Wow. Know. What about that? He has a bigger battery than the four. A smaller top vessels well, doesn't the depth sensing required for air gestures consensus it's nicer looking than the four. It's not as powerful as the iphone se or one plus words, but it's also about one hundred dollars cheaper the Pixel for as available for preorder. Now, for three, hundred, Fifty Dollars Shipping on August twentieth. One more thing at the end of its post announcing the four, a Google also announced it with Havi Five G. version of the quarry for four, hundred, ninety, nine dollars and a five G. Pixel five coming this autumn. Yes. So the only feature, we didn't know because of the long delay was everybody thought this was going to come out in May and almost every detail about it leaked over the intervening months was the price and the price seems to be everyone's favourite feature at three, hundred, fifty dollars. It's one hundred dollars exactly cheaper than the one plus Nord, it's about fifty to one hundred, fifty dollars cheaper than the iphone e depending on what model you're talking about. It's quite a bit cheaper than other mid range phones as well but then Google goes and undermines or as some call it Osbourne's itself. By announcing, it will have a five G. version of the out in the autumn almost like saying don't buy yet. We're GONNA have a version with five G. also pixel five, which we kind of knew that that one's less than undermining but the version of the four, al cost more cost four, hundred, ninety, nine dollars. So if you're into that three, hundred, fifty dollars price point I guess maybe you don't wait for the. Five G. Because you're like five won't be widespread for a few years anyway. But I don't know that it seems like Google just wanted to get this out there and say look okay, we made it. It was a pain maybe they're not making as many of them as they had wanted in. So they're not pushing it as hard. I don't know but it's an odd launch for something that for for people who want to. Mind their mind. Their pennies is a very attractive phone. It is that said, the timing is curious as you mentioned I mean listen a five hundred dollar phone. A lot of people are like, oh, that sounds great I mean that's not even really expensive based on you know what a flagship phone will run you these days it kind of feels like to me that. There is some supply chain issues going on here Google's leg at just just released. And like sell for real cheap and you know, let's move the merch. and. Then we've got we've got other stuff going on this to push so hard since we didn't make as many of them kind. You're Kinda right it kind of feels like that. Yeah. The one thing and Roger I. Don't know if you want to weigh in on this for people who want the bargain price three, hundred, fifty dollars very attractive it's not very future-proof. That's not dragging seven thirty is not the seven sixty it's not even the best mid level snapdragon processor it obviously doesn't have five G. I mean we you end up spending more because you'll have to replace the sooner. I would say that for a lot of people like, for example, my wife, she wouldn't use a lot of the additional features. She just needs a phone that does all the basic does the context does a photos I can share through instagram or facebook. The only problem with her phone is it's no longer being supported right? It's a, it's a five year old one plus three and so it works great but it just it has no, no longer has any updates for security and all available. APSO having something like this also means that you know you get a new phone that's inexpensive but it's also part of the cold Google we strip it down to the bare essentials. There's no bloat wear that's added and it does what it does like eighty percent of what most people do on the phone. Yeah and if she still rocking a one plus three, this processor will probably be fine for her. She's going to be doing heavily intense things would use the processor. So yeah, that makes sense.

Why Is There a Coin Shortage in America?
"At grocery stores, convenience stores and hardware stores across America. Curious signs are popping up asking customers to pay with credit cards, debit cards, or exact change. Is it because cashiers don't want to handle physical dollars and sense that could be contaminated with the coronavirus? nope. It's because the United States is currently experiencing a coin shortage. So? Where have they gone? America's pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters haven't disappeared. The covid nineteen pandemic has simply disrupted the normal cycle of coin circulation. According to the US Treasury, there were forty seven point, eight, billion dollars, worth of coins in circulation as of April twenty, twenty, which was actually four, hundred, million dollars more than April, two, thousand nineteen, but those coins are not moving through the economy like they should be. The Federal Reserve gives several reasons as to why this is happening. Banks and businesses nationwide closed their doors during the lockdown phases of the pandemic including cash and coin heavy sectors like convenient stores, public transit, and laundromats. The US mint also slowed its production of new coins during the early stages of the pandemic as staff was reduced for safety reasons. The men's Philadelphia and Denver Location's. Even as the economy reopened, consumers are opting for contactless payment and generally using less cash and coins. Meaning more coins are sitting at home in Mason, jars piggy banks, and under couch cushions. So. What does this mean? Retail stores are feeling the pinch of inconvenience and passing it along to their customers. The national, Grocers Association and several other retail industry trade groups sent a strongly worded letter to Federal Reserve Chair Jerome, Powell and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin in late June saying that the federal rationing of coin shipments to banks quote threatens the functioning of our member businesses and by extension the needs of our customers. In their letter, the group cited economic statistics showing that cash is still very much can in certain sectors and among certain consumer demographics, for example, between forty five to sixty percent of sales at grocery stores and convenience stores are cash payments, nearly half of all transactions of ten dollars or less are paid in cash and consumers with an annual household income of twenty, five, thousand dollars or less pay in cash for forty, three percent of their transactions. So what's the solution? The long term solution is to wait for the economy to return to normal at which point coins will naturally flow back into circulation. But in the meantime, the Federal Reserve and the US meant are taking action. The meant has ramped up coin production outpacing its usual one, billion coins a month with one point, two, billion coins in June and one point three, five, billion a month for the rest of twenty twenty, according to The New York Times. The Federal Reserve announced in June that it was rationing out its inventory by sending banks and credit unions smaller than normal coin shipments based on historical demand. The Fed also convened an emergency, US coin task, force composed of government and industry leaders including banks, an armored car companies. The task force is expected to come up with a set of recommendations by the end of. July. One of the task forces early accomplishments was to create the Hashtag get coin moving which banks and credit unions are plastering across twitter to encourage people to cash in their piggy banks to get more coins back in circulation.

Coronavirus relief bill negotiations continue as benefits set to expire
"Negotiations continue in Washington over the next pandemic relief bill, there appear to be not just major differences between Democrats and Republicans, but also disunity in the Republican Party on their proposal. Meanwhile, emergency unemployment benefits expire on Friday, Democratic Senator Chris Van Hollen of Maryland joins us now, Senator Welcome, Jeremy. Good to be with you. Well, before we get to the pandemic relief. I gotta ask you about some big news this morning. The president says he plans to withdraw nearly 12,000 troops from Germany. A move that our allies are concerned will weaken NATO. Trump has accused Germany of not spending enough on shared defense. What's your reaction to that? This is a terrible move. It undermines the credibility of the NATO alliance. It calls into question our commitment to our NATO allies. This is exactly the thing that will cause Vladimir Putin to pop champagne or vodka bottles in Moscow, and it's the exact wrong direction to go. Do you have any sense of why the president is doing it? Well, he is said from the beginning that he questions NATO and the utility of the Alliance and Sadly, we're now seeing that sentiment put into action. Some of his supporters keep trying to say Well, he didn't really mean it. He really does support NATO. But now we're seeing actions that indicate that, hey, is not a strong support of the alliance, and he is taking actions that Essentially bring smiles to the faces of our adversaries on and great here to our allies. Let me ask you about the relief bill. How much are you willing to compromise in other Democrats willing to compromise with Republicans to get something passed? Before some of these benefits run out. One of the critical issues is whether there should be an extra $600 of weekly unemployment benefits, which is what Democrats want or Republicans have been proposing to $100. Well, the loss of $400 per week for struggling families is going to be devastating. I mean, their bills have not stopped their rent payments have not stopped. Their mortgage payments are Not on hold, so we need to maintain a large level of support. Are we willing to sit down and talk with our Republican colleagues about this? Of course, But We've been waiting two months in two weeks now since the House passed its bill on now we get this proposal from Republicans that's totally inadequate does not extend the eviction moratorium has not a penny for state and local government. Does not create additional funds for the nutrition programs s O. This is totally inadequate to the needs that are out there in the country. Do you need all those things in a bill in order to support it? Well, we need the basic elements of a proposal of a response that meets the needs of the people who are hurting most around the country and we need to Address both the health aspect and make sure that we have adequate testing, which the Republican bill does not provide for because they don't have a mechanism to increase the supply. And we need a robot safety net for people who were Hurting through no fault of their own, and the Republican bill provides. Neither

Brown says the state police will be moving in to provide security around the federal courthouse in Portland.

"When the president our team and our context in my office with Ukraine were entirely focused on the broader issues of the lack of European support. So you were. You were being investigated. I was tied to aid to Ukraine. That's your question. Let me be very clear in this date as we speak. You're right now Steve. The vice president has not rejected the notion that he was aware that president trump or individuals within the administration ministration were urging Ukraine to investigate the former vice president and his family. There were also phone calls between pence INS. Alinsky Gee what do we. What do we know about that win? Those took place. How many of them there were what the content was? What do you know about Pencil Ski? Just phone. Calls Truthfully Steve. We're not sure sure what those dates were. And we're not sure. How many of them there were? We know that these calls took place because Vice President Pence said calls took place and he was even asked directly whether he would release the transcripts of those calls like President Trump did of his July twenty fifth phone. Call phone calls. I have no objection at all. We're walking and working with White House counsel about that a month later those transcripts still have not been released and it's not quite clear if they ever will be so so his public statement on that has been A. I'm fine with that. And there's been no official word from the White House about. Hey we're not gonna do it because of X. It's just sort of that question of releasing the transcripts as just kind of hanging there you know. President Trump says his call. What's Alinsky was perfect? There's the chance that you know vice. President Pence is call may actually have been perfect and so you. By releasing his transcripts. You could more easily compare pair. The way in which a vice president pence and Donald Trump go about foreign affairs so we know that in the course of this saga pence head. A trip to says alinsky inauguration that was canceled he had an unspecified number of phone calls whistling ski. He had an aide who was on the trump's Alinsky call and he had a personal personal meeting whistle Linski during the period in which the aid was frozen putting all of this together. What does ask ask ask it this way? I would say about that sort of that. That picture well how about this There are a series of questions Steve that I have made explicitly the clear to This administration that we feel should be answered and the vice president has had no interest ever since I went back and forth with him on on October. Ninth in engaging I think that these questions as the ones that you and I are talking about right now. They are not secret yet. The vice president has has refused to address them at any point before. That meeting was against the timber. I did he read the transcript of trump's call Zielinski. We don't know that did Zilenski ever address trump's age being held up With Him we do not know that. And to what extent was pence briefed trump desire for the investigations before September eleventh. We don't know that we should note. The vice president is also a not complying with is impeachment inquiry himself. You've framed it this way a couple of times. I think you said said the question was was he involved was he sort of willfully ignorant of it. I think that is in general. It's a question in in situations like this. That comes up a lot. Maybe a little bit old here so so I'm always thinking of a former vice president who got caught up in another administration scandal. George Bush Senior Iran-contra his famous defensive of himself back. Then what she said. I wasn't in loop this is what leads people to say quote either George Bush was irrelevant or he was ineffective. He set himself. WHO's out of the loop? Now let me give you an example. You said ask you a question Max plan plan out of the loop no operational role go ahead And that was one of the things that was said about him. Back then was that he may be sensed something was going on and so he. He didn't ask questions. Didn't want to know more because he didn't want you know his fingerprints all over it. Is that something that might have happened here. Exactly did he have no idea that Rudy. Giuliani was engaged in diplomacy efforts with Ukraine because based off of the testimony and the public statements that have been made to date. It seems seems like that was a a a a pretty well known fact. So did the vice president have no knowledge of this and if he did know that Rudy Giuliani was involved. Did you ever raise his hand within that administration and and say what is a private citizen who does not have the security clearance and is using personal devices running diplomacy that our State Department should be should be conducting. Because if you're the number two in the country if you're the vice president United States all of this is happening my question is at what point is vice. President Pence stood up up inside of that White House and said I need a full understanding of what we have had in terms of conversations with Ukraine in and what conversations Rudy Giuliani in other associates have had with Ukraine Hinting date we have not had that from this vice president and again we mentioned just depends has has these long standing relationships with Republicans on Capitol Hill certainly his reputation entering this administration was he was more of sort of a conservative irving establishment. Figure I remember when the Access Hollywood tape came out a few weeks before the two thousand sixteen election. There was that twenty four to thirty six hour window where you had had Republicans speaking up and saying trump's gotta go trump's got a dropout. Let's put Pinson. Let's put pens at the top of the ticket. Are you picking up on that. Any any of that. kind of thinking among Republicans in Washington now when it comes to this impeachment question. Hey maybe move trump out. Put pensin run running more standard-issue Republican in Twenty twenty today. At this point you haven't seen enough of Republican senators. The individuals that are ultimately have to convict The President or remove him from office speak in that way and a good number of those individuals are up for reelection. Frankly you've got Joni Ernst Iowa you've got Susan Collins in Maine you have a lot of these competitive races here. The fact of the matter is President trump is still largely a popular figure and so it would take quite The political political courage and the risk to make that sort of a move and understanding that president trump If you were to be removed isn't going anywhere Vaughn we. You're always ask our listeners to submit questions and we do have a to hear there basically along the same lines And I want to run them by you. David wrote to us on twitter. OAC tweet your questions to as David did this. He's from Spain. Pay Just outside of Barcelona That is our most exotic locale yet. David tweeted this. He you said could vice. President pence be impeached for his involvement in the Ukraine skin. I was just asking you from the angle. There of would trump being in pence replacement Republicans. Go go for that. Is there a scenario where pence could be endanger of impeachment. I think that the question here and this is I think this is the hard part for the vice president. Right it's it's that willful ignorance or complicity. The question is you probably theoretically remove. President trump first and then pence becomes president. Went but at that point. If let's say pence becomes president than it takes in order To find a vice president that individual has to get approval from both the House House in the Senate so good luck finding this House of Representative Steve and the Senate agreeing on. Who would be the number two to Mike Pence and then if you were to impeach impeach and remove Mike Pence from the presidency does going down a rabbit hole? Boy Oh boy. I don't know how you ever get there and that gets into a follow up question that we had a listener. Who who who wanted to go a step further down that rabbit Hole Laurie? We'd be island Washington. Yeah if pence is bound to be caught up is also impeached and convicted. Along with the president she says does Nancy. Does Nancy Pelosi the House speaker finish out the term. Because you've got that you know that Line of Succession President Vice President Speaker of the House that would take think a simultaneous. I guess trump pence impeachment removal with no time in that process for anybody else to be pushed through the the two confirmation. Seems like seems like it might be a dream scenario for them. I think I think that's my grandma was born at would be on whidbey island and I. I think there are a greater chance of my grandma. Myself and vice president pence come into whidbey island for a barbecue than there. Is Nancy. Pelosi becoming President Under this circumstance. Because you would have to have a Republican Senate agreed to remove Donald Trump and Mike pence and allow Nancy Pelosi to become President United States and under this current makeup That's pretty hard to fathom. At this point that is That is probably a good way to put it in probably a good way to end. This conversation Vaughan Hilliard. Thank you so much for joining us. learned a lot from you. APPRECIATE IT appreciate Steve. Two thousand six hundred and seventy seven. That's the number of pages of testimony. Tony from closed door hearings that house investigators released this week and today we got the transcripts of testimony from to National Security Council Officials Fiona Hill. Who after post over the summer and Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vin men who still serves in the White House one big takeaway from their accounts Vin men and Hill said Mick Mick? Mulvaney was behind the decision to hold up military aid to Ukraine over the summer. Remember Mulvaney is the director of the Office of Management and budget. He is also the president's acting chief of staff. He was scheduled to testify on Capitol Hill today under subpoena. But as expected he didn't show up.

"From NBC News. This is article two inside impeachment. I'm Steve Kornacki. Today is Friday November eighth. And here's what's happening. We have made America great again and to keep America Drake. We're going to reelect president. Donald Trump for four more years vice president. Mike Pence was in New Hampshire on Thursday to add president trump to the state's primary ballot. So there's smalltown boy from seven Indiana's Indiana so very humbling day for me. But he couldn't escape the news from five hundred miles away a welcome. Thank you Starting back to Washington. was there any role that you had discussions with. Silence hence was immediately asked about his role in the Ukraine scandal. Or do you feel at the president's calls perfect as as he has said many. Sometimes the American people have the transcript of the president's call and they can see there was no quid pro quo. President did nothing wrong. Meanwhile today defiance defiance on Capitol Hill Jennifer Williams is testifying against White House orders. Jennifer Williams is the special adviser for Europe and Russia for pence she. She was on that July twenty fifth phone call between trump and Ukrainian President Dolinsky. This is the first time impeachment. Investigators are hearing from someone in Mike. Pence's office she might be able. They provide information about what pence knew about the hold up of military aid vice president. Mike Pence has been a side character throughout the impeachment inquiry so today on article two. We're you're asking was vice president pence in unwitting bystander to the Ukraine scandal were will he become a key. Figure as the inquiry moves ahead. VAUGHN hilliard is a political reporter for. NBC Vaughn thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me. So we WANNA get into how pence fits into or doesn't fit into into the impeachment inquiry. All of the questions there. I think to start though just wanted to take a step back and talk about his role in the trump administration his relationship and ship with the president sort of the the state of that in our understanding of that was I remember this partnership in Twenty Sixteen when When they teamed up just before the Republican convention it seemed like a bit of an odd pairing A couple years later a couple years into the trump administration what do we know about Mike. Pence's relationship with Donald Trump. Right now he was so I heard those twelve years in Congress from two thousand to two thousand twelve. He then went on to become the governor of Indiana. You know he's the old classic Nick Christian Conservative from Columbus Indiana Place. A forty thousand people a true hoosier and so when he suddenly was elevated to be Donald Trump's running mate he was shot onto the scene. I was actually. It was the night that he was. Selected is on trump's running mate in its first interview. It was with Sean Hannity and I've looked back at this moment a lot over the last three years. He Sean Hannity asked him said how will you disagree with President Trump. And what does that look like. What are you doing you disagree well? Well I've been in positions before like that. I served in the leadership of the Congress. A shut the door you tell the boss exactly what you think but when the door opens the job of the vice president is stand right next to the president and implement the policy that he's decided and over the course of the three years you've seen pretty much do just that do we have a sense. How how trump trump regards him? You know there's been talk over the time Ray would would. He looked to replace Mike Pence. But every step of the way pence has been in lockstep walking that very tight tight-wire and essentially always defending the president when you're looking at trump. He is not spoken about word about pence. And if you look across administration there's not many. They have made it this far and pence new getting into this that he was going to have to do that in order to stick around and it looks like he's in it and He's prepared to do whatever it takes to stay a part heard of it. What is pence is relationship with Republican leaders on Capitol Hill? Like has he been a conduit for them to the administration Has the nature of that changed now that he's a loyal partner of trump to. What's what's his reputation there? This is what it was during the two thousand sixteen campaign when there are a lot of hesitant Republican officials. It was Mike Pence. The one that was going and massaging those relationships he was the one that was carrying on the fundraisers. He did it. During the midterms he was the one that largely went out from Congressional District District Congressional district fundraising and campaigning on behalf of Conservative lawmakers. He has been the one that is continued to be sort of that. That quiet quiet voice to help that relationship between the White House and still a Republican Party. That is still obviously grappling with how it's GONNA handle itself into the future. So let's talk about pence in Ukraine pence in this Ukraine investigation He enters the picture on this as I understand it. Maybe you can you can flesh this out back in in May is that right amazed. Alinsky is supposed to be sworn in pence is supposed to play a role. Exactly we should note. The vice president has not answered a slew of these questions directly. And we're still trying to figure out but it was. It was in May was the inauguration of Zalewski in the initial plan was to have vice president pence. Go to that inauguration ultimately what we do know is that he never went there. The question is did the president or anybody around the president directly requests. VP or to his office that he not attend inauguration inauguration. I think this is the larger Mike Pence Story. To what extent is it willful ignorance or complicity. And when I say willful ignorance de eh the vice president ever ask the administration. Why am I not going to this? Inauguration now we don't have that answer yet and Or did the vice president's office just sake the administration's word and not attend rick. Perry the energy secretary ultimately went in his place. There's testimony this week from pence aid from Jennifer Jennifer Williams. She was on the July twenty fifth. Call Trump insulin ski that famous July. Twenty fifth call Pence himself wasn't do we. We know if she told him about that call. He found out anything about She comes from the Foreign Service background. She is somebody who is not a political figure in. She was one of those two individuals that was on that Dylan call from the vice president's office and that call is important in what Jennifer Williams knows because ultimately it was on September timber. I that Vice President Pence went and had his own meeting with Celeski in so the question is did vice. President pence ever read the transcript that July twenty fifth phone call between Trump Dolinsky in which president trump urged investigations into the DNC supposed DNC server. In the Biden's they did Williams ever brief the vice president of the United States about President Trump's words. That is what we're looking to understand as to what Jennifer Williams knows right. So that's that seems like a key question We've all read the transcript or the summary of the transcripts that the that is out there. But you're you're talking about this period read between the phone call and the start of September in the transcript at that point is not publicly available. Nobody knew about it. The question of whether pence had read it in period. I asked him about that. What's what's his response? been like Mr Vice President. Did you read trump's twenty fifth meeting Mr Vice-president. It'd be great to talk with you Mr vice-president I asked him this exact question here. Because this was originally president trump was going to go be the one to have that meeting over. It was in Poland On September first ultimately Mike Pence went into his place. One would think that before going in to a meeting with The Ukrainian president that there'd be holy aware of what President Trump's interactions and directives would have been and that's part of that conversation at sued. Frankly be a little bit of a surprise if nobody ever briefed vice president about trump's desire to have the Biden's be investigated or the supposed Deon Server be investigated again. That goes to the question. Is this willful ignorance or is this complicity by the vice president. I asked him and it was Just one month ago on October ninth in Iowa I asked the vice president over the course of about seventy five seconds repeatedly the same question Jin was he ever aware of interest within the administration to have Ukraine investigate. The by nights never discussed issue of of The issue of the Biden's with President. And what I what I can tell you is that all of our discussions is internal.

"That's out there about him but he ah pushes this side in favor of things are a little more anodyne like like Fiscal Policy and you see pence make this change pence tries to live within the tea party but not get wrapped into some of the more social stuff he doesn't get wrapped into the birtherism for instance tries to keep it very tight on fiscal policy policy so by the time he is running for governor. He is running as somebody who's not a culture warrior. He served one term as governor of Indiana from Yep got elected in two thousand twelve to two thousand sixteen election and it's clear that he still had his eyes on the White House. He traveled abroad. He talked about national issues. he still had to run the state was he good at the statecraft of being a governor dealing with the legislature being on top of policy. No no he was a objectively. I can tell you that he is a terrible government majer. it's obscene other governors. I work in this is not a comment on his policy or as politics but just on his his handling of the building he was not dialed in with the lawmakers he did not have a sense of things and let me give you the best example of this which is he's so focused on running for president building out his National Network of donors that he doesn't see the religious freedom battle coming in twenty fifteen. He doesn't see how that could bite him and he has nothing to do with it Moore. This is the thing that the basically ends his career. In that moment in twenty fifteen in two thousand fifteen a group of legislators develop a piece of legislation. This is when gay marriage is becoming more accepted. They come up with this piece of legislation. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act which says that I guess no business person has to participate eight and a gay marriage. If it violates their religious beliefs doesn't get involved in drafting the legislation. How does he respond to this. The headwinds look fine for him. Politically in this moment he doesn't see the backlash that he saw the previous year with the same sex marriage a ban that they were trying to put into the constitution solution and he decides well. It looks safe. He sticks his head up out of the bunker. He says I'M GONNA sign. It and I'M GONNA take credit for it. which is something he often liked to do things? They didn't work gone classic politician right things he didn't work on. It was Reagan that said that you know success has a thousand fathers failures in orphan. So you're here we go. Here's one of the one thousand fathers for this and he pops up. It's the exact same time that the the Comic Con Convention is in Indianapolis and what what light this on fire and this is something that is incredible. It's a facebook post from Georgetown K. Mister Sulu he says and he I think he's out at this point. He says that he knows exactly what this law is that Mike Pence assigning because he saw it in the internment camps that his family lived in and he sees it now with the bigotry towards him and his and other lgbt residents this just catches on fire and and it becomes something that pence doesn't know he's never experienced before it becomes a viral moment online at catches on fire and just cashes them flatfooted because he he thought it was safe. He had no idea what he was getting into and this brings him into this fateful interview with George Stephanopoulos where he goes on air and he tries to defend this legislation that ironically enough he had nothing to do with creating he tries to take credit for it and he goes on there and he basically it sounds like he's supporting discrimination in Indiana and it just wrecks his career. That's the end of it after that like it's nobody's even talking about him running for president anymore or after that interview March thirtieth two thousand fifteen they're talking about whether he can survive a bid for reelection as governor. We're listening to the interview fresh. Air's Dave Dave Davies recorded yesterday with Tom Lo Bianco author of the new Book Piety and Power Mike Pence and the taking of the White House after a break. They'll talk about the conversation with trump that helps secure the vice presidential nomination for pence. Why pence's wife Karen was angry when the ticket won the election and and whether members of trump's family have been angling to bump pence.

"It landed on women directors and Emily is here to come out against. Two notional. No. Okay. So so I was a little bit nervous about doing this show because I have been in Italy last week at the Venice film festival. And if you ever want to get completely protected from the news and not have any of it, enter your consciousness, go to a film vessel in Italy. It's just like you're on another planet entirely, but some of the problems still exist there that exists here. And I think Venice had one film out of twenty one and it's competition that was directed by women this year just to give you some comparison. Toronto is just started today or yesterday, and I think they're thirty three percent and their competition. Again, not great, not parody, but like they're trying. And there's a group called the fifty fifty by twenty twenty group that is trying to push for parody by the twenty twenty and all the major international foam festivals they campaigned can. And there was a big thing. You might have seen where Kate Blanchett at much of people go on some steps and they got into signed this agreement for transparency. And trying to get more women in the festival, but better barrow who's the director I'm getting so inside baseball. But this is where I've been for the past week Alvarado various director of the Venice foam festival, hesitantly agreed to some of these this protocol, but also made the statement that he would never agree to a quota. He would quit his job before he agreed to a quota, which I find to be like the most precious and and melodramatic thing to say like, you have one of the most influential jobs in film, like that's a nice job to be the director of the Venice foam festival and the Mirai DEA of code. I don't not even like saying what the quota would be. You would quit your job over it at every festival, the North American doing better on the whole. But a lot of Europe, Ian ones consistently say it's quality that they're judging first as if a group of men has an idea of quality that is inherently. Objective and infallible, and you hear this over and over and over again and it's, it's insane. So congratulations.

So as far as I can tell, there's a movie coming out called the predator, which is about a mean alien with dreadlocks. I don't. That's all I can tell that it's about. But they're the director is a man named Shane black, I believe. And so basically this story broke where he had cast his buddy and the movie and they find out he's a registered sex offender who spent six fucking months in jail for soliciting a fourteen year old on the goddamn internet, and you know, figure it out a on who was in the movie with him women, again, having to do all the God damn work. And what I love is that originally, this guy was in the movie and he the director released a statement that was like, you know, he explained it to me, it was a misunderstanding. And then now he's like, I was misled. And let me tell you something. If what if my friends goes to jail for six months for soliciting a fourteen year old, I have questions from the jump from the very beginning. He was like, I've now read the affidavit. I've seen that this was he really did do it. Why didn't you ask that from the very beginning, you just believed what he said when he pled guilty. And really, I just feel like these fucking dudes. You have shitty friends, you know their shitty. You know, they're awful. You know, they're rapists, you know, they're fucking predators, stop hiring them, stop being their friends stop after the fact saying, oh, yeah, that was weird. That was, oh yeah, he was kinda creepy. That girl did say he raped her, but I mean, he's my. And this happens all the time fucking stop it.

"Again, I feel as though we're over and over again, being exposed to the same set of facts in different forms and yet each time it surprising, Josh, what did you make the book? Well, so first of all, I actually I feel bad for Bob Woodward in that Michael Wolff beat him to market because how many of these books do you really need. But the thing is the way Michael Wolff beat him to market is that Michael Wolfe is not really a reporter as such. And so that book was very sloppy and he was able to like, you know, yeah, plausible enough. Throw it in. Let's publish it. Whereas like Woodward will have the more accurate yet pretty similar sounding because it's easy to make up plausible stuff about Trump that is very similar to the things that actually happened. So this is probably the book that people should read. But I think a lot of people will have read fire and fury, and maybe they read Omarosa book and they're like, do I really need another thing that tells me the slightly more accurate version of the thing I already knew. As you say that, I'm like, oh, yeah, that's why I'm not gonna read this. Car would you think? I feel bad because it's not funny like on a global level, but that should is funny. I know it's not gonna change anything. It's not really that helpful, but like reading quotes where they're just like this fucking idiot. Like, you know, they just turned the corner and they're like, can you believe how goddamn stupid he is, and I just, I'm gonna take it because I feel that we have. So little else. No, I agree. I agree. We're going to allow ourselves to appreciate it because what else are we going to do? Exactly Emily. One other piece of this is there is a lot of news in the book. Someone pointed out that there's just a a side in this book about after Trump winning Mark meadows in the house saying, let's get Paul Ryan. We can take him out right now that basically there is a sect of the house of their publics in the house that really did view Trump as permission. So to Caras point, this really is about deeper, frightening truths about what's going on inside the White House. What did you think the way that this is going to reach the general public and people who won't even read the book is that it'll be taken like they'll be news items that are published around like the bigger red. Relations in it. Right? So the people who are going to read the book are people who are going to enjoy the experience of reading the book. I don't. I don't know about that man. Like I just I worry anytime I find myself taking joy in how fucked up at all is I, I worry about the entertainment factor even when I find myself getting seduced by it, and I kind of tend to be very circumspect about how much I actually intake of that because.

America is America's a lot of things but one of it is the culture we create a Nike is a big part of the culture recreate is important that the companies that symbolize America the represent America that we interact with every single day are on the right side of the issue we can pretend it's not important but one lesson of trump is we need to look around and say what are the things that speak for America and what are they saying and Nike does speak for us like it or not and I think it's a really good thing they looked at this issue and they didn't want to be on the wrong side of it and regret having missed their chance to do the right thing so I actually do think it's a really good thing that's all all right we come back we're going to play a game about the Bob Woodward Book don't go anywhere love it or leave it There's more on the way love relieving brought you by Express VPN there's a battle going on with the future of the Internet Privacy Be Corporation appreciate it now Internet providers and mobile carriers like comcast and verizon are free to restrict websites spy on your online activity and sell your browsing history advertisers if you don't want your Internet browsing to be tracked and sold you should use express VPN with one click express BBN shields your online activity from Internet and mobile riders as well as hackers and spies express VN has easy to use APPs that run seamlessly in the background computers phone or tablet expressly being secures anonymous as your Internet browsing by encrypting your data and hiding your public Ip address for less than seven dollars a month you can get expressed vpn.

He is one of the gusts with the way in basketball papers around. Continents and I can tell you if Colin Kaepernick thinks the United States is a bad place in a very discriminatory nation to live. And then I suggest you get the passport and travel around the globe. And I think. Stop. This is very rude to the fourteen countries that hosted him to play professional basketball way. More races. Yeah. Like look at these shit holes where I was sent to play basketball.

"There is varies a stern looking man in a pinstripe suit. An enormous tie. And I just immediately can't trust him. So I love that he's about to. So here's what I think happened. There were two lines into FOX. One was for auditions to play guy Masterson. Sky, Nassar sin. Guys and dolls. The other was to be racist. And some point guy got on the right line. And they rolled out a sixty second ad. They have LeBron James in it. They have Serena Williams in it and other great players. They talk about dreaming to being the best. This Colin Kaepernick belong in that category. Now, I absolutely do not think so. In fact, Nike should rename bad for, you know. Yeah. You just go to Marillier's as stern, but it's not like holding back laughter. Oh, yeah. No, I was wrong about that. As soon as he opened his mouth, he sounds like he's, he's like he is on the brink of laughter for some reason, what are they? What are they feeding them? And there was this who is this man? They don't even put it. They don't have room for his name anyway. He does. He actually does. He. I think it's exciting. It tells you just how hard this fight is for them because you know that this is not the first person they call. Like this marble mouth weirdo, like, I don't know who it is, but we're gonna find out. I think he has the enormous tie because his neck is why does his head and he needs it in order to to create a sense of proportion. Is, is he an athlete? You know, he has used, seemed like you look like, you knew anybody know who this person is. Nobody knows who he is anything. He's guy Masterson Feis everything. Even if it means our stock price, frankly, swan missed on this one because I think they've. It says he is a former basketball player. Davis is name is brought Gillespie which sounds made up. Does it count if you play it like the YMCA or the LA fitness? It doesn't say one country. They don't say what country they don't even say professional or amateur, they just say any of us could be a former back. I mean, this guy is a hundred percent teen health classes at a high school. So it says it says pro. Okay. Well, still, I don't know. Then going about this the same way. I think the folks run in the Hillary Clinton campaign did is you know they just missed assessed middle America, and you know, this is again deletes trying to make up for something that you know, frankly, Nike has had some lawsuits in recent history is. Is that phrases amazing. Frankly, Nike has had some lawsuits in recent history. Yeah, he didn't want to bring it up, but he must be Frank. Is he talking about sweatshops or. No, he's not. He's not at all. That I found to be the funniest thing about this when people are like Nike's never done anything this terrible. They had children make sneakers in like caves. Yeah, they've done worse things than this guy's which is also why I'm hesitant to be like Nike is now the brand of the resistance? No, you get the fuck off this sage. Get the hell off here. Look what I got. I put these on. These are Nike shoes. I, I love my country. I really thought about wearing some Nike today. I almost were a bootleg, Nike sure that I got in Japan because I felt like that was the right statement to side. That's close as I was going to get to wrapping the brand, you know, they're trying to swing it back in their favor. But this, like I said, this is not the way to go about it. I mean, frankly, if they want to make an ad about sacrificing, why don't they go all the way? If this is Nike put Jesus on there. This is dot. Can you imagine that campaign. So I think it's worth unpacking. So frankly. I also like that in the midst of this interview in which he's supposed to be attacking Colin Kaepernick. He's like com. Cabernet. He's only ten percent of the way to Jesus. What the meaning of it. It's like, go all the way with it. Someone who's even better at sacrificing for a worthy and noble endeavor. Jesus, please, God. I hope that we get. With this Christ's strolling out of that cave. The two print Russia's Air Force One. Yeah, surprise the haters just. Middle fingers up, just ready to go. Just do it..

"'cause I know the bottom line. Doesn't take much which is maybe surprised to all of them who think that they're couching the all of these thoughts and things. It's like, Nope, it's pretty easy to suss out a lot easier than you might think it is Josh. So we did see Susan Collins, I think, talk her way out of caring about the row Email where he is claimed at settled long conversations with her in his Email. He tried to take out the claim that it was settled law. I think it's a interesting and revealing, but not but a little squishy. Well, what are you took out and this is a legalistic parsing, but then this is a judicial nomination hearing what he took. I was a claim that all legal scholars believe that it has settled law and so the line has been well, that's not true. There are legal scholars who disagree with that, and I think it's something for season Collins to fall back on and say, well, this was not a claim about his own view or the administration's view was a claim about the views of all legal scholars. But I think you know stepping back what you're saying. There's not a lot to suss out is absolutely right in the sense that like he's a conservative Jew. Bischel nominee and you have a Republican majority in the Senate and what they want is a conservative judge on the court and Democrats do not want to conservative judge on the court, and that's all anybody cares about here. And then you have this ridiculous process where you go and you pretend that we care about what's in some specific Email or all of these things. When really it's about the way he's going to rule on the court and the whole process, which is fundamentally a political process that Republicans will win because they have a majority in the Senate. Then we pretend it's a conversation about all of these other things when it's really fundamentally about how he's going to vote on the court. Right. And a lot of this is a dance in that Democrats are trying to raise concerns in order to make it unpalatable to support him, not teach us something about him, right? But the weird thing then is that those concerns are about all these answer Larry issues, and a lot of a lot of cases they're also raising concerns about the about how vote, but it's like the concerns about that. We haven't seen enough of his emails. We're not really going to fundamentally learn anything from seeing more of emails. The concern is always gonna vote. Right? Well, that raises the question. So what. Do you think at this point it would take to get Collins and Murkowski to at the very least expressed doubts about voting for Calvin on, you'd need some sort of significant misconduct. I think revelation in new information. Yeah. Yeah, I think that's right. Quiz, what was that a quiz? No, no, it was. Sure, yeah. Yeah. It was a quiz. It was a quiz and the answer he got gotta right. Emily, I found myself as I'm watching the hearing to Josh's point because a lot of this is theater. I find myself even just in paying attention finding it difficult to tell the difference between what's important and what's not. Because you have one group of people whose job it is to say, this doesn't matter and another group of people whose job it is to say this matters. Totally. Do you find that in watching the hearings? And do you think that it's hard for people watching this unfold, make sense of what's really going on. It's like trying to solve a mystery that we already know who killed. There's, there's not. It is a lot of kind of just play acting. This are going through the steps. And I think that for the small portion of people watching who are undecided on how they feel about the major issues and ways that he's going to vote, barring some kind of major revelation about misconduct or something like that. I don't think anybody's looking to be surprised by anything that's going on here. And then in the meantime, there's all these opportunities for people to have their hero moment. So I don't know Spartak because it's everywhere. You look too many Spartacus far too KAI Sparta. It is me. I am Spartacus the one running for president. All right. Now they're doing well in the hearing on make fun of Cory Booker another day. What have have this one? All right. We come back. Okay. Stop..

"Some of which had been previously proved and some of which hadn't. In addition, the Washington Post of chained leak committee, confidential documents, cavenaugh testified to take Kennedy quote. No, I was not involved in handling Bill Pryor nomination. Bill Pryor was a controversial anti wrote. Judge was being nominated. The federal appeals court later in that same testimony cavenaugh said, I'm not familiar generally Mr. prior, but that was not one that I worked on personally. But then later in some of these emails, it was revealed that he was invited to meetings around the prior nomination. This lots of many people say that he is committed perjury. In addition, cavenaugh testified in multiple confirmation hearings that he did not know Republican Senate staffers had hacked and stolen democratic emails to help the Bush. Whitehouse, get a leg up on the opposition judicial fights and play no role in the scandal. I tell you perusing the cavenaugh emails today. It was like a punch in the face about all the things that made Bush terrible. There was the phrase unitary executive appear to want to Kavanagh's emails. And I like I was all of a sudden I was in two thousand and three. I'm Pat days, but. Today, Patrick layhee showed that Cavanaugh was the recipient of a number of obviously stolen democratic materials. Some of which were purported to be from a quote, mole in an Email marked, quote spying and was told to handle the stolen documents with utmost secrecy. You can debate some of these other questions, but to me, it is pretty fucking glaring that around this specific issue. I think he lied around a bunch of this, but this I think it's pretty hard to deny Emily. What do you think? It's just too easy though? I mean, you'd have to think that there there's some code word for spying or like or like you could just call it like spaghetti. Like, I don't know if there are any like Vander pump rules fans in this in this audience, but that's a really good useful code word for basically anything you're not supposed to be doing pasta rather. It's pasta. I'm sorry. It's not about the pasta. It's not about the pasta. With a fucker you talking about. I'm just saying that's like putting spine in the subject line just feels like it feels like it's throwing us off the sense. I don't know. Yeah, it is like, you know, they do. I worked at the White House. You get a little sloppy because they're emailing all day. It's a job. You get a little angry. It'll heated your rights on the shouldn't, but you definitely don't put subject lines spying here or the documents we stole from the Democrats. Don't tell anybody is public record is going to be a fucking library. I mean, I know for me, I get a lot of anxiety about writing emails and sometimes I try to like write a clever headline. Just grab grabs his attention, but you know, around five o'clock when it's kind of the end of the day, you're kind of on running on fumes, like you of through cleverness Alba window. You're just like, what does Email about like spine. Okay, fine. Whatever. I can go home..

"Hey, there I was on, keep it this week. We live. It was a good episode. It was good was he wants. He is the host KCRW's all the president's lawyers and left right and center podcasts. He's a senior editor at business insider, and it'll be on tour this fall in September twenty Santa Monica, October, eleven in San Francisco on November seventeen New York. Please welcome. Josh barrow. Josh, hey, thanks to long Trump. No, I'm glad you. You were basically on the stage by the time I got to the end of it. It was good. All right, let's get into it what a week. If you're like me, you're a messy, bitchy lives for drama. And so this was quite a week we had from Bob Woodward's book that proves everyone around Trump thinks he's an idiot to anonymous op EDS that prove everyone around Trump thinks he's an idiot and who can forget the tough guy bro off between little boy Marco and big boy, Alex Jones, but we'll get to all of it because we're going to start with one of the most important battles of Trump's term. This is the battle over the nomination of bread. Cavenaugh a lot of Democrats have done it. I think a pretty good job of sort of bringing the fight to these hearings. First of all, yesterday we saw this exchange between Kamala Harris and Brad Kavanagh. We have a clip. Have you ever dismissed special counsel Muller or his investigation with anyone? Well, it's in the news every day. Have you discussed it with anyone with other judges? I know have you discussed Muller or his investigation with anyone at Kasowitz Benson Torres. The law firm founded by Marc Kasowitz. President Trump's personal lawyer. Be sure about your answer, sir. Not remembering, but if you have something you want to. Are you certain you've not had a conversation. Anyone at that law firm has spent some Kasowitz Benson Torres, which is the law firm founded by Marc Kasowitz who is President Trump's personal lawyer. Have you had any conversation about Robert Muller or his investigation with anyone at that firm, yes or no? Is there a person you're talking? I'm asking you a very direct question yes or no. I need to know the, I'm not sure I know everyone who works with that law firm, but I don't think you need to. And then by Thursday morning, some frustration was mounting him on committee members about only ten percent of Kavanagh's public documents being released to the Senate committee. Previously confidential. Emails were relief to the New York Times which showed Cava argued in two thousand and three against the idea that Roe versus Wade ought to be considered settled law. And then Corey Booker lead to series of committee confidential emails that led to this moment in the committee. I will say that I did willingly violate the chairs rule on the committee confidential process. I take full responsibility for violating that sir, and violated it because I sincerely believe that the public deserves to know this nominee record any Senator officer or employee of the Senate who shall disclose the secret or confidential business or proceedings of the Senate Shelby liable if a Senator to suffer expulsion from the body and to punishment or contempt. So I, I would correct senators. Really. That apply by the and bring the charges. All right. All right. It's interesting. Interesting because like that you're into all right. He fights Senator Harris. If you're nasty with the disdain that drips from her voice is truly all I want to achieve in this world. That I want does she have something there? It's like it's a setup for something that's going to drop about apparently as a friend who's one of the three hundred lawyers at this firm. So are we going to learn that? He talked with this person about this? Does comma Harris know something? We don't know. I feel it feels like we've seen the setup. Haven't seen the punchline. We don't know whether there is a punchline, right? I believe today. He said, no, he didn't discuss it with one particular lawyer, right, but I find it hard to believe that she went into that confrontation just waiting for him to deny something well, yeah, but I also find it hard to believe that Cory Booker pretended to have broken the rules of the Senate. I guess. I guess nobody is. I believe Cory Booker is claiming that that he was released a mix of documents..

And the discards of Republican politics over the last thirty years. There walks patriot. He looks like he wants Donald Trump to succeed. He acts like he wants Donald Trump to succeed. But as we learned in the New York Times this week, it's very conflicted about it. But thanks to this quiz o. blower. To this good Julian Assange. We now have learned something. Donald Trump is not fit to be president. But have no fear because there are adults in the room. People like are anonymous hero who every day, make sure that deregulation judicial nominees move smoothly. Despite the chaos. Bigotry that surrounds them. Fuck that guy. My God. Unbelievable. Now. I am. I think on the scale that exists amongst liberals, the democratic socialists there. Among liberals, they're all liberals. It's a brand thing. Oh, you're a super liberal. We'll get into it. You're not seizing the means of production. You're a liberal. You're a liberal who likes the new bands. I feel as though there is a consensus around the value of the so-called adults in the room among liberals and the consensus is fucked that you should walk out and say what you're seeing. I actually am a little bit more sympathetic than the consensus. I'm a tiny bit over towards the. We still kind of want those adults to be there, but. But this op op-ed is such a self serving. Bit of self righteous. What does this Ahmed gonna do? Nothing. He's gonna do nothing. It's going to rile up Donald Trump. It's going to rile up his supporters. It didn't teach us anything. We know I didn't see Paul Ryan changes mind. I don't even know if he's answered a question about it. Paul Ryan's answers to questions about Donald Trump actually have what is technically known as a red shift in them because he's moving so far away so quickly, or is that a blue shift? Is there anybody who knows the guy? It's red, right? Yeah. Okay. Yeah, his his answers have a red ship, you know, like when a car siren passes by and it's like. You know, he sounds like he's moving away. You're part of it. You're part of it. You're complicit and you're enabling it, and there's two of the pieces of it that were the most going to me. One was this idea that there were whispers early on amongst the cabinet about invoking the twenty fifth amendment, but we didn't want to provoke a constitutional crisis. The term constitutional crisis has come to mean absolutely fucking nothing. It's not a constitutional crisis when you invoke an amendment to the constitution according to the spirit and letter of the amendment. It's not a constitutional crisis. If you're using the amendment for the exact purpose it was written for that is why it is there. I'm not saying it'd be a breeze. I'm not saying it wouldn't be messy. I'm not saying it wouldn't be the shit show to end all shit show. I'm not even sure we'd survive and I don't even know that he would leave. Am I totally not work, but that would be the crisis. That would be the constitutional crisis not invoking the thing that's the first part. And the second part is there's this part of the the bed where he says, it's not about what Trump is John. It's about what we've allow Trump to do to us. Hold on. I want to. I want to get it. Exactly, right. Because it's so stupid. Hold on. Literally going to look it up. I'm gonna go, I'm googling times resistance, hero. I'm telling you, I think it'll pop up. I link. The bigger concern is not what Mr. Trump has done to the presidency, but rather we as a nation have allowed him to do to us, we have sunk low with him and allowed our discourse to be stripped of civility. No, fuck. You know. No, no, you're doing it with him to us. You're not outside of it. You're not better than it..
