There had been some reporting that mitch. Mcconnell was was looking at impeachment as a way to purge the party of trump because of president. Trump is convicted by the senate. You would not be able to run again in twenty twenty four and that's part of the reason. Impeachment was such an appealing option for democrats. I think what happened today. Though when we saw you know a vast majority of house. Republicans did not vote to impeach. The president there were ten. Did vote to impeach the president but a vast majority of them while condemning president trump condemning his rhetoric condemning his actions. These still didn't feel impeachment was warranted. So i'm really curious to see how senators look at this. Whether they have the same considerations we saw president trump putting out that video shortly after he was impeached. Putting out a pre recorded video during which he tried to condemn the violence at the capitol. It'll be interesting to see whether that's enough for republican senators. Abc's as kotehra with us.

Companies target lawmakers who tried to block Electoral College
"Or joining a long list of corporations stopping political donations, especially two Republican lawmakers, who rejected President elect Joe Biden's victory in the Electoral College. We take a deep dive on that with CBS news political correspondent Ed O'Keefe. On Monday, Hallmark Cards Company asked for a refund from Republican senators Josh Holly and Roger Marshall, who received a combined $12,000. That company says that the senator's decision to vote to reject states certified electoral college results last week do not reflect our company's values. American Express told employees Monday.

Robby Mook, a Democratic Party consultant, thinks this is a bigger shift. This is part of a larger reckoning we're seeing in our society, you know, employees of these companies really care about what their leadership is doing about what happens to this Pac money that they're donating, and we saw how this was transformational and sports.

Corporate America is also facing pressure when it comes to hiring President Trump's current and former spokespeople. White House press secretaries often go on to get high profile jobs in the private sector. President Obama's landed at McDonald's Amazon and United Airlines. Forbes magazine editor Randall Lane argues that those that spoke for Mr Trump will face a different landscape. He says. If top companies hire them, his magazine quote will assume that everything your company or firm talks about is a lie. There is no way that we can look at the readers and say these are people we can trust in the private sector now to give that accurate information.

I'll go promptly pass impeachment. Resolutions this week in the house, But there's simply not enough time in the Senate. Steve I've heard some backroom. Yeah, I've heard some lawmakers push this idea that we should let Biden get Maybe his 1st 100 days under him, push some of that agenda and then work on impeaching President Trump after that. How likely is that? Especially after you know, this emotion and fervor kind of dies down? It sounds like a strange idea, and I know what you're talking about.

Trump demands Congress amend pandemic relief bill, issues controversial pardons
"President Trump has sharply blasted the bipartisan cove in 19 economic relief bill that Congress passed this week. He's demanding changes, including an increase of the $600 stimulus checks to Americans up to $2000. The Cove in relief package is part of a bill that also funds the government through September of next year. And if the bill is vetoed, it would be in a government shutdown. CBS political analyst Leonard Stein horns says there are many implications. This is a stunning turnabout that has the potential of throw Washington into chaos shut down the government. Delay essential aid to American families and businesses and leave renters and unemployed workers with few resource is to cope with their uncertainty, and there's another political twist to this as well. Because if the president follows through on his threat in Congress doesn't come up with an alternative voters in Georgia may take their frustrations out on the two Republican senators running for reelection in what is already a tight race. It is unclear how serious the president's threat he is or whether he would actually veto the bipartisan legislation. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded quickly to the president's statement, saying she's ready to push for the $2000 checks. He's now asking for Pelosi posted on her Twitter page. The Democrats would bring the president's request to the House floor for a vote by unanimous consent before the end of this week, Mike DeBonis, congressional reporter with the Washington Post says that could lead to another standoff. There's gonna be a very brief session tomorrow in the House, a Democrat will come in Fran Tastic bill to do the $2000 Jack. We expect a Republican is going to stand up and say, Well, That's not all the president wants. He wants to get rid of other parts of this bill, so they're gonna object and say we got to negotiate this. But you know if that's the case, Democrats Musa a. We're not negotiating more. We'll do We just sign the bill that we already talked about. And move on. But that could just really spark and extended sort of stand off. That could mean among other things, the government shutdown people not getting the benefits they were expecting. And this could last. You know, frankly, all the way till Joe Bynes inaugurated on January 20th. Senate Minority leader, Democrat Chuck Schumer of New York, says he's hopeful the president will not veto the coronavirus package. He says Congress can pass additional funding in a subsequent
Trump floated appointing Sidney Powell special counsel on fraud
"President Trump is said to be weighing increasingly desperate steps as he tries to reverse the results of the election there, reportedly, including naming a special counsel to investigate allegations of voter fraud and even imposing martial law. Joining our John Aaron from or was Ken Walsh, White House and political analyst for U. S. News and World Report might be that the title of that movie the year of Living Dangerously I've seen we have a sense of the President Trump really can't give up the idea that he won this election, even though he did not. Joe Biden won quite clearly and that's been confirmed by the Electoral, College and court cases of that the president has had filed have been thrown out. Challenging the results. But I think what's happening here is that there's just the fact that these solutions and President Trump smarter mean considered indicates that he hasn't really gotten past this idea that he could perhaps stay in the White House and overturn the results of the election. What's got a lot of people in Washington anxious is how serious he is about considering these things now. Lot of the reporting indicates that a lot of these ideas such as martial law to rerun the election, using the military having a special counsel named Sidney Powell, who was really conspiracy theorist to investigate voter fraud, things like that, that if he's really considering them, maybe he has some other tricks up his sleeve, more or less to throw a monkey wrench into the into the election process, And that's what has a lot of people concerned how serious he is about this. But even the fact it's being talked about at the White House is quite remarkable. I don't I don't recall anything in 30 years of covering the White House similar to this right is his goal that you have pointed out before. I'm getting this before the Supreme Court just totally out the window. At this point. I think it is. There's still some cases that could get there. But that decision that they issued by the week ago really did set back President Trump's ideas about having Supreme Court side with him. I did want to mention also that January 6th is another important moment because that's when the House and Senate supposed to meet in joint session to consider the electoral college affirmation that Joe Biden one. There's a lot of ways that people could make mischief during that point, and President Trump is calling for massive rallies to put pressure on Congress to overturn the election, So he looks like that will definitely happen again. Quite extraordinary that he's going to these lengths. But that is where we are. And I think that January 6th is probably the next date that people should look at for, um, another challenge to this whole
Most feel election is "settled" but some Trump voters disagree
"We approach the Electoral college certifying the results of the election tomorrow. There's still broad objections from the Republican Party. New poll from Northeastern University finds big number of Republicans still don't believe Joe Biden won the election. For more. We're joined on the case. CBS Ring Central News Line by Larry Gerston Centers, a State university professor emeritus and KCBS political analysts. Good morning, Larry. Morning, Liz. So 97% of Democrats believe the election results only 61% of Republicans do what does this start? Divide mean for the political future in this country? Well, it's tough. I mean, there's a point where people have to say, you know, it's over. Let's go on. That's what we usually expect in a democracy. But in this case is a rather large swath of voters. Yes, mostly Republicans. Who believe that the religion that the election was rigged and that survey 85% believed that there was broad. Another. 81% agreed that non citizens that were involved, and so when you have that kind of baked in concern And negative reaction. It's kind of tough for the country to come together and move forward. No, we've never seen anything exactly like this. Can we point to President Trump and his rhetoric that has led to this? I mean, certainly In the past, Democrats have lost Republicans have lost. I don't remember ever seeing this. Look, it's no doubt about it. The President Trump has tapped into a reservoir of contempt and animus. That's all there is to it, and he's done it very successfully, by the way we have seen in this country for the last 25 years. Groups of people becoming increasingly concerned and largely revolves around immigration and globalization. Globalization because it's taking way good jobs, union jobs, factory jobs the immigration because people are coming in And people are making the connection that the immigrants are taking the jobs of the folks who are losing them. Now that connection's not true, but nonetheless, that's the sentiment. And as long as you have this resistance building up, and then you have someone like President Trump, who artfully taps into it. Now you've got a pretty good group of people who are saying, You know what? This is not fair. It was rigged. Our guy didn't win. And and we're not about to give in. We're now learning that some House Republicans are hoping to use Congress's certification of the results in January to challenge the election. How would that work and will it be successful? Well, what happens on January 6th is that all the states have sent in will have sent in their results of from each state's California's 55 electoral votes will go for providing Texas is 38 electoral votes will go for Trump and so on to get to the point of Of 306 to 232, the the vice president who is president of Senate will open up those envelopes one of the time. And and read off the results if somebody objects And it's at least one member in the House and one member in the Senate. Then each chamber goes into debate to decide whether any of the states results should be rejected. Now that the objections have happened occasionally over the last 130 years, when this process has started, not once has any states votes been turned away? But you know, not once we've said this a lot in this election cycle, and I think there's some degree of concern by by a few people that they're not once maybe overturned this time, too, Although nobody knows exactly how this could be a wrinkle January 6th Most experts think that that's all it will be. But nonetheless, I think when ways anxieties for people on both sides, So where does the Republican Party go post Trump? That's a good question. I mean, the question is, Does the party move along the trump lines where we see this large reservoir of people 70 million folks voted for Trump. Not all of them have the kind of values that we were talking about, but an awful lot do Or does the party return to the party of Lincoln and so was called which most Republicans view is one that has balanced budgets. Of defense ties with allies, low taxes, that kind of thing we don't know. We just don't know It's really going to be a turning point right now for the Republicans, and I might add on lesser degree It's a turning point for Republicans, given the split that they have between the moderates, and the progressives is a very, very precarious time in American society. Typically, we've come together when elections are over. What happens this time? Well, hold on, sit back and fasten your seat belt, All

Trump holding vaccine summit amid reports administration passed on chance to buy more vaccine doses
"As we're learning this morning about the 95% effectiveness of that Fizer vaccine, the Trump administration Facing new scrutiny for not locking in the chance to buy more of it. This is ahead of a planned summit they're calling in at the White House, where the president's expected to sign an executive order aimed at prioritizing vaccine shipments to Americans before other nations. KCBS Ring Central news line Now in our case, CBS political analyst Marc Sandalow Mark This'll be another self congratulatory moment for the president. But this question about buying more of the vaccine is something that's likely to reverberate for a while. Yeah, and standing which hard is it there? These are private negotiations or secret negotiations and that they're confidential. What the government specifically did with visor in there. Talks are not public. We do know that they paid for or they promised to purchase if effective, um 100 million doses of this visor vaccine, which is actually only 50 50 million people because you need the double doses. About $20 a shot, eh? So, yes. So now the news comes out that the Trump Administration had an opportunity to buy upto 500 million more doses, which would have been good for essentially the entire nation. But but this gets complicated. First of all, the White House denies it. And the White House denying it at this point means nothing. It means nothing more than the drug companies saying something because neither have credibility when it comes to this. But the fact is White House makes a good point, which is back last summer. There were five companies going after these things, and the government didn't want to put all its eggs in one basket. Now, you could certainly make the argument. At the cost of half a billion dollars, which is not inconsiderable amount of money. The government should just promise to buy everything from everybody, no matter what, but the fact is that there were other, You know, Madonna has a back scene that's coming out of the government also committed to buying So they didn't want to put all their eggs in one basket. That may be perfectly reasonable. It would be awfully nice if We could. If we could make a deal like a zoo country that we won't look backwards and start pointing fingers on who messed up if the people won't start congratulating themselves for making brilliant decisions that then have to be questioned because as much as the reports about the Trump administration blowing it May be overblown, and there's no way to know that for sure you can count on the fact what the president says in the White House in a couple hours. He's also gonna be overblown, starting with the fact that he is going to take credit, saying this operation warp speed, which cut a lot of the regulations and put money up front for a lot of the drug regulators and for I'm sorry for the drug manufacturers. Is the reason that five year has this drug what the fact is fighter was never part of operation works, speed and really, the focus now needs to be on who's going to get it and win. Well, and if there's gonna be a moment where we can elevate some people that hero status, let's talk about all the scientists and lab attacks and all of that, who have done something dramatic and remarkable mark in in nine or 10 months. You go from sequencing the DNI of this virus to putting a jab in somebody's arm in the UK this morning. And again, you're talking to somebody who has been a writer for many years and a political analyst, and so the mechanics of it are so far beyond me. I can't imagine how any of these vaccines work, but you're right standing me They got the the the imprint of the virus. Back in January and immediately began working on an antidote and immediately started working on a vaccine to how to solve this, and that is a process that typically takes many years. And it's not. I mean, part of it. Is that the government back some of these companies financially and promises to buy doses from the making financially secure but part of it just the advance of science, and they have a lot to do with the biotech industry up and down the peninsula that has advanced techniques, enough that they can apply modern science so that these things Happened much, much quicker. We still don't know how effective is going to be they saying about 92 95% effective, That's great, But we don't know is how long it lasts. Yet California has been sound like in a sense of pitiful numbers is supposed to get somewhere on 320 million. I'm sorry 220,000 doses over the next several weeks. Which is a lot, but remember, each person needs to by my math. That means about one out of every 230. Californians should be able to get this by the end of December, And meanwhile, the rest of us who aren't frontline workers who are not 85 or older and are not particularly vulnerable will wait. And well, We hope it's in March, but it could be April It could be made. It could be your June and every day is gonna matter. All right, Mark, Thanks for the update.

Karine Jean-Pierre: The History-Making Lesbian on Biden's Staff
"Is so much being said right now about the incoming administrations communication seem to also celebrate. Especially on this podcast. Is that two of the seven names that been announced so far are queer. Airspeed towbar and corinne jean pierre. We're going to have to queer women of color in the white house and leadership positions acting as the face and voice of our government. It's wild that think about and for that reason. I wanted to bring you this interview. That i did with corinne that originally aired on a luminary app. We spoke almost exactly a year ago. When corinn's book moving forward was first published. The message of book is that all of us no matter what you might think of as a typical background or story for politician. All of us have a police in politics. If corinne jean-pierre a queer woman of color who immigrated to the us as a kid can make it in politics. She says so can you. When we spoke corinne was also appearing as a political analyst on nbc and msnbc. So you'll hear talk about that. As well as what she learned working for a wide wide wide array of politicians including john edwards anthony weiner and of course resident barack obama from the advocate magazine and partnership glad. I'm jeffrey masters. And this is lgbtq. And here's shop. Thank you for having me. Of course excited thank you. Let's jump in right that your story is not the typical political story. You're immigrant you're a woman or one of color you're a and that is not what we typically see in politics. Yeah and yet. I think it's easy to soon. That's changing with high profile examples. Like alexandria ocasio cortez omar and yet. Those are very much outliers right. Yes nor it is the norm and and like you were saying. I walk in so many different communities if you will like i present so many different communities and that was one of the parts of writing this book i wanted to. I think people get really afraid when a here politics and getting into politics or getting involved and so that's one part of it and they think the other part of it is that people always ask me even young people. They ask me all the time. I teach at columbia university. So i have young people taking my class yearly. And they say how did you get here. How did you get into the white house. Like how did you work in politics and get a different presidentials. So the purpose of the book is also to show. There's not one path and also as a person of color gay person a woman an immigrant. I wanted to show people who are all. Those things are one of those things like. Hey you know she did it. I can do it too. So i lay that out in a very detailed way. You know as an immigrant. I grew up being told. Oh you're going to be one of those three professions doctor lawyer or engineer. And that's i think anybody who's listening in. I grew up in an immigrant. Family could understand that and that didn't work out. I talk about that in the book. And then i talk about. I didn't get into politics until my mid twenties. And so but you're right. there's representation matters and there's not a lot of representation. Even now there are like aol see as you just mentioned others kind of outliers. It's still a very small percentage of women of color of people from different identities that are more diverse that's in the political arena. So the hope is that can encourage inspire people to not be afraid of the word politics And to just get involved because the way you make change is if you get involved you're yourself and you know watching tv even though you don't mention being gay every time it is a part. It is no secret nearly no. I've been out for a long long time. Yeah and i think that's something that is easy to see about you. Bring that up because i. I think there's a tension between you bring. Being gay does not need to come up in every conversations right. Yeah and yet. I think it so powerful to know that there is escape on tv. Like i also want you to for. He never really. I'm so glad you brought that up. Because i think about that sometimes because i'm like i'm out. It's not hard to know that. I'm that i'm out. I talk about my daughter. I talk about my partner in interviews. And it's out there but i don't lead with that you know it's like it's part of my multiple identities. I have multiple identities at so. It's a very interesting kind of way to be in the space and it's actually kind of funny when people are like. I didn't know you were gay. And i'm like how do you not know i'm gay. I've been out for a long time the like. Wow and so it's just. It's funny. But i am aware of it. I am conscious of it. I want to respect all of said all of the communities i represent in. Were you to bring it up every episode out. Say like oh my god. She brings every time he was like. What's wrong receiver. Don't bring up at like one like she didn't bring yeah. It's like you. Yeah yeah it's over. I don't know how people like majority of people feel about it. But i i just want to lead with my experience and kind of my smart. There's a reason at this table and everything else just complements me.

Violence erupts during Paris protest against Macron's security law
"For the last five years, The French police have been overworked and under stress. There were the terrorist attacks in 2015 and in 2018, protesters wearing yellow vests took to the streets to denounce income inequality. In between have been endless strikes and demonstrations that often end in violent clashes with young anarchists. Police have been injured and targeted. In 2016, a police couple was killed in front of their child by a terrorist who broke into their home. So President Emmanuel Macron tried to push through a bill to criminalize the publication of certain images of on duty officers. Matches that Brodsky, a law enforcement researcher, explains. That's being a demand for quite a while from rank and file and police unions because of fears regarding their privacy and regarding possible physical threats or even attacks. Article. 24, as the legislation was known, was part of a larger security bill at first human rights groups and the news media spoke out against it The You also warned France that journalist must be able to work freely. Slim been ashore is a civil rights lawyer. It's impossible to pretend that you're a strong democracy. If you press is afraid off filming and then showing the images images like a video that surfaced last week showing three police officers beating a black man Ah, professional music producer who never raised a hand against them, Um it's a national outcry over the video. Tens of thousands of people took to the streets across the country. 25 year old student Charl Du Bois protested in Paris Citrine Geneva. Come here, you'd be up to the official We're here to protect one of our cherished liberties, he says. Freedom of information. The right to stay informed is as important as free speech and the right to protest the face of article. 24 has been the hardline young Interior minister General Domina, who recently scoffed at the term police violence, saying any time police use force it's legitimate. But Macron called the videotaped beating a national disgrace. On Monday, he ordered his interior minister to withdraw the controversial measure. This all comes at a sensitive time for police community relations, says law enforcement experts that Brodsky the George Floyd case, had huge repercussions in France because there were also demonstrations here and also, we should not forget that we had for over a year. The yellow vests produce yellow vest. Protesters say they, too, were sometimes treated brutally by the police. That's left anger and resentment within the movement of mainly working class whites from the French Heartland. Political analyst faced off Barbie A says the interior minister tried to push macron further to the right. But he made a big mistake because He fought. The people will be with him on the policemen against the newspaper on the players on the Internet, and it was not the truth. The truth, says Barbie, eh, is that the French want security for their policemen and liberty for citizens. Eleanor

Ruth Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 87. We are getting reaction to this news. We're going to turn to the KCBS Ring Central news Line and speak with KCBS political analyst Mark Sandalow. Um, Mark, I wanted to talk a little bit more. Of course. Later on today, we're going to talk a little bit more about her legacy a little bit more about her. But you're our political analyst, talk a little bit about The scenarios that could shape up politically in the next couple of weeks or months as the result of her death. Yeah, This sets up an epic political battle now in the U. S. Senate, all the nicks over just two coming weeks. Um, you know, the fact is that Ruth Bader Ginsburg was You're a solid liberal vote. Who 5 to 4 majority for the conservative right now, But it is a and again you won't be careful the way you talk about this because I know Your heart goes out to the Ginsberg family, and she held on to fragile health for many, many years, But that said, there is opportunity now for Donald Trump. Whether he wins the election or lose it to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg with somebody who will solidify a conservative majority for decades to come. Now, the difficulty is Mitch McConnell, Republican leader of the Senate when Anthony Anthony Scalia died with only 11 months left in Barack Obama's term. Said. No chance. We're not going to confirm anybody with only 11 months to go or president leaves because it should be up to the American people that the next president decide. Well, Mitch McConnell is already said not today. But previous to this step that that certainly not any principal in his mind. This is something which it Ruth Bader Ginsburg or anybody would believe He would have trump replace him immediately. There. Used to be a filibuster protection with Democrats could stop Republicans from simply filling this, but the Republicans have done away with that filibuster. Or Supreme Court nominee. So if the Senate and Trump would agree to do this, Trump could replace Bater Ginsberg before Election Day, and let me tell you for many, many conservatives out there who take Donald Trump. Personal Proclivities, and they can't stand the way that he had raised a federal spending, etcetera, etcetera. They want him to appoint conservative judges and this is a chance for him to buy them, and I would expect that Donald Trump will try to immediately fill her spot with a conservative justice. Mark. Do you see any of chance that any Republicans would side with Democrats on saying, Look, this needs to be held off until after the election. It's certainly possible and You know, Mike, if this kind of thing where if you would ask me that question five years ago, I say, of course. That even Barack Obama when Scalia died, did not replace him with somebody who was very far to the left. Merrick Garland somebody who was a more moderate because you wanted to sort of reflect that legacy. My guess is that there will be no thought of that right now that there will be a woman nominated. A conservative woman nominated, Um you know, I could see a few senators saying we don't gun will go along with this. But, boy, is this really just throws into They throw some a lot of social issues into the presidential election very, very quickly, and it's very sad the way this is set up. That's what some people would like to see. Supreme Court justices have terms that ended a certain age because this is this is mixed up in with Scalia, Scalia died suddenly sleep and Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a tragedy. She's got an incredible legacy for us to be talking about. I immediately talk is going to turn into whether this is an opportunity for conservatives. And the answer is, Of course it is. And, um through nice, gentle tones, finger getting very, very ugly US Senate immediately. Thank you very much for joining us.

"News political analyst Steve Roberts is with us through this morning. Steve your plate is full this morning. Yes. It is. Here's one very interesting. Takeaway, and that is the power of women both as candidates and voters up and down. If you look at the democratic victory that gave him the house fueled by women voters and often. They were women candidates stated Virginia. Good example. Three Republican seats flip to the Democrats. All three women candidates with the Torius. And if you look at the votes women's voted democratic by nineteen points yesterday men, Republican by four points agenda after twenty three points. Eighty four women in the house of representatives going into the election. You're almost certainly will be more than one hundred for the first time in our history of the country more than one hundred women in the house of representatives. Also in a number of governors racist democratic women did well, Kansas. Maine, Michigan all elected democratic women. And there were some Republican women as well. I female governor of South Dakota. So definitely was a new evening where women were critically important with the Democrats taking over the US house. So what does the future look like for the President Trump administration? Well, it's going to be painful. The fact is that even though the democratic majority is slim that means they take over every committee. That means they have more money to hire. Researchers and investigators they have the power to hold hearings and witnesses and maybe their single biggest power is summed up in one word in that its subpoena. Republicans change you lose a couple years ago. So that a house committee chairman can issue a subpoena without even consulting the minority. So Republicans love that idea when they were in control and suddenly now they're going to be the victims of that. The Democrats already have a long list of issues that they're going to be. Oh, no. Careful they have to use that power modestly and reasonably or else it could blow up in their face. And they certainly don't have any grounds for starting impeachment hearings at this point. But there were many many issues starting with come finances. The president's tax returns some of his regulatory changes in areas like bar, mental control a very legitimate targets of Democrats in power as of this morning, really shifts in Washington and Democrats have much more leverage in the new congress. And they've had in the past Democrats had such high hopes in the south for Andrew gillum and Florida Stacey Abrams and Georgia Beto O'Rourke in Texas all three apparently are going down to defeat. Is there any kind of common denominators theory on on that? Well, it is still a country where it is hard for candidates of color to win statewide races. They can win in the house because of the narrower districts. But it is still very tough in this country. We've had only a handful of non white governors in the whole history of this country. We have only three senators color. So this is still a fight. But if you look at the underlying demographics in a state like Texas. Yes, federal lost became very close. And the fact is the vote the non my go-to Texas was forty one percent. That's the future that number is only going to go up, and it's only going to go up in Texas. It's only gonna go up in Florida. It's only gonna go up in Arizona and Nevada and many other states. And so that the Republican party if you look at the demographics. They were clearly the party of aging white men in each election going forward. Percentage of the electorate of aging white lane is going to get smaller percentage of minorities is going to get larger. And this is a is a demographic trend, it's undeniable. He's voters has already been born. This is not guess what? And so while this was not a good night for those democratic candidates.
