Fresh update on "senate" discussed on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory
"Fights. Besides $750 her that does resolute and it's also you know, four years ago, we talked about being able to avoid paying taxes legally avoid, you know, dealing with the tax laws being so brilliant that figure out howto pay, you know a lower tax rate, but this is not just avoiding what, But what is being seen in this reporting is avoiding, evading, perhaps robbing and cheating. We'll see again. It's one thing an Amazon Zero in taxes. That's the real problem. We have to reform our tax. Sure it's broken. And yet every time we try to reform the tax code, the lives go. No, no, no, no, no, we don't. We don't want to make it all easy. And one page and Very straightforward because the rich lives want to keep all their deductions and there, but they want to pretend like they think that paying taxes is patriotic, but they don't want to pay that. They want you to pay taxes. That's the whole game. That's that's the entire con As you see it here, perhaps robbing and cheating, Mika Brzezinski says no, that would then mean that he's given To the I R s the means to actually go after him Criminally, Which is not what's happening here. Anyone who looks at this Than any expert worthy of of the of the term who sees what's in this? Remember, this is not even it's only they published the tax returns. This is The New York Times and The president says that they're all full of crap. I mean, he might be a little bit It might be a little excessive and saying they're totally full of crap. I don't know. I'm so I'm assuming they probably have someone who leaked the tax returns to him. Okay? I don't think they're completely making this up wholesale. But he's saying it's it's garbage. We can't know how much of it is garbage, but there's nothing in here. That's a problem. It's also boring. It's also who cares. What? What do they want? In what world? Let's take this Take a different approach to this. What would have to be in those tax returns for them to not attack Donald Trump his tax runs well, let's take an example. Mitt Romney, the Democrats. As you know, Harry Reid famously said on the floor of the Senate so he could not be in any way legally liable for this, he said Mitt Romney hadn't paid taxes in 10 years. That was a lie. And Romney paid a lot of taxes and say what you will about the guy and I've said a lot. He is rich, and he did make a lot of money. But Mitt Romney was paying taxes that was accompanied and later on. When Harry Reid was asked about this. His response was well, he didn't win, Did he? It's just a slime smear, that's all wass. Character assassination. That was Mitt Romney, who I think is a very by the book by the letter kind of guy. I mean, he's sort of a grownup hall monitor type. And and he even Found himself attacked on taxes. You know John Kerry. In 2004 paid something like 11%, or some just pitiful tax rate on unearned income on effectively passive income of the assets that his wife owns his wife. Married a very wealthy man. And then John Kerry married her. So you know, he paid very, very low taxes a little. So when he's you know, taking the Million dollar yacht to the multi million dollar house and the vineyards, leaving the multi million dollar mansion on Beacon Hill in Boston. I mean, not paying a lot of taxes. I think John Kerry also even moved his boat Anchorage so that he could pay less taxes, and one thing you'll find is that even very wealthy people. People that have no no realistic concern about ever running out of money or not being able to live a very fancy lifestyle, even very wealthy people. Can be very cheap. I've seen this a lot. In fact, some of the richest people that I know are fixated on money, but Maybe that's a conversation for another time. I just think that this this story on the trump taxes, it's boring and nobody cares and they can try to pretend that everybody cares, but ultimately it's boring and nobody really cares. Except for the journos who have been chomping at the bit. For years on this thing, and all along I've been saying, guys, the I R s already has it. You know, you listen to show No, I know I was never never worried. About Trump's tax is and what it would mean for him because I'm like the IRS. Already has it. They already have the taxes. So what are we even talking about here? What He's going to have 100 note from pulled the door is very good with Trump is giving me all the things I need for. Ah, Stealing election. The $1 million Trump ruled the chick. No, I don't think that's what's gonna happen. I don't think the president had some notes. Neither dear Trump is lad. I love your big Smoochy Smoochy here a billion dollars. I don't think that that's a thing. Maybe we should make it a thing kind of a fun sketch. But but But, Trumpy I miss you come back for snuggles with Vlad, right like that wasn't going to exist. That wasn't going to be a thing that actually happened, but they believed For some reason, they convinced themselves that it that it was going to happen..

Apple's Beta Effect
"Have my notes, the Beta effect to talk about, and what that is is with with with going from fourteen fourteen to fourteen one, which we believe made for iphone twelve, and that's why we're not getting that. We also believe fourteen to was made before the final version of fourteen point zero and so when you update to fourteen point to. You can't use the new blood oxygen sensor APP on the Apple Watch because it requires your phone to have the version to do something with the data and so my watch on seven point zero watch os before was on fourteen two I couldn't do the oxygen singer tests I. Guess You have to accept the health disclaimers and stuff upfront right? That's probably and it saves it there too like the background. Readings where they go. So I think should say it must save on your watch before like if you're out and about without your phone, it's back into some pretty sure and then he just sinks him up. Right. Yeah. Yeah. So but it's like ekg where you've gotta you've gotTa have the version match up to support it and we need when you like started in the health app on the phone does it Does have that like. Explain urine like disclaimers like it does when you do EKG yeah I don't recall I. Mean there is an I button for information on the readout on the watch explains thing like ninety and above is pretty good. You've got kind of hunt for it to find that I think it should be like under the readout not at an disclosure button but I think. The reason is they didn't get medical sign off on the sensor because they call a wellness not medical, right? Yeah. So they have to be very careful about how they present this information and we respect about spending Keno after the show like. is kind of silly at the moment you just get this number and then you're kind of left your and devices about what to do about it but they haven't go FDA approved the weather you know the necessary. Regulatory. Accreditation they need to be able to make more defined choices like they can with Iki the cagey where if it does detect potential arrhythmia a directly sound on the screen you know go talk to your doctor about it like they don't have that same flexibility with with the blackhawks jeans and that's why in the event they would say like we aren't doing studies about blood oxygen and Covid, nineteen. The Apple Watch has a blood oxygen sensor lie they never would linked together because. The purchase self. So the the APP on the watch is very nice I. Mean we saw the animation from the event on seeing it in person it's lovely. It's blue and red. It's like blood arteries. And it as fifteen seconds to run it to do an like an act of measurement and. As you near like say three seconds it becomes it begins to form a circle of completion and it's just so delightful. How how looks You do see the last. Measurement in the APP itself. So if you go just launch it, you'll see the last say passive measurement that picked up. So you might say like when our three hours ago. And That's neat. So it's more data than than just here do or read out. Your readings to be like. Consistent enough that you think it's good because I've seen some reviews like I've been getting some resource I get ninety, six, hundred lights will have the place. So I don't really trust it. Yeah. Well. Not How to. Read. Out. That was like you're below ninety. And then I had one that was like you're you're in the ninety range than I would maybe be concerned but I've seen the rains be from ninety three to one hundred back to back tends to be pretty consistent for me. Washington Post. They had an issue where they tried different watches and bands and just could not it to work the right way have had that experience. Sensor depends on like your skin and You know. The Senate doesn't work if you've got tattoos for instance so. Different reasons and stuff like transparent basically. So it's you know. No Job for it. And if there was an issue like despite being review watched, that's the point of this talk about the experience I would mention in trust me. I mean lot with the series five hours of disinterested and reviewing because of an issue that had which I read about instead. Of. The. Battery Life So. I've been on this one fine. Yeah.

US House Democrats Crafting New $2.2 Trillion COVID-19 Relief Package
"House. Democrats are preparing smaller corona virus for the leaf package. All right. So it's a trillion dollars less than their last proposal, but a trillion dollars more than what Republicans are ready to do. So they split. That More, but roughly, so they split the difference source tells us that the two point four trillion dollar package would include enhanced unemployment insurance stimulus checks, small business loans, and aid to airlines, and it says here you can talk to the right or the price tag is still about a trillion dollars more than the Republicans latest offer. But. But thought the skinny deal was something like seven or eight, hundred, billion dollars trillion dollars. Rounding now I think and I. Know They are in Congress Lana rounding lot around rounding going on. In fact, they probably call this isn't there I mean if you're. Just, a couple of hundred billion. So why not round that around? That's right well like we really have to pay. Right it the idea that it looks like they're getting closer together but not really I, mean, they're still talking about a massive difference between the two sides and I don't think there's much chance Manuchehr yesterday they're ready to restart talks but didn't give a timetable for any of that and I don't see how this happens before the election I just don't. Probably not and. I think both it's weird because I think. I mean you saw Goldman Sachs yesterday for for GDP for not the third quarter but for the fourth quarter from six to three. Based on. You know not having prospects for more stimulus so I can tell you that. The election will be over but I think the administration would like six percent a lot more to be able to brag about that although we're going to get that flash number for third quarter which should be. Twenty plus. like two weeks before a week and a half before the election. So you're going to hear how great debt is biggest-ever I guess twenty, three, twenty, four percents we heard from Brian Moynihan yesterday who said that you should have additional aid, but it should be targeted the Democrats in this latest thing that they've put forth still have payments going directly to people you know payments across the board president trump has mentioned that be something he'd be interested in but I think it. Makes a lot of sense and and this is something you would probably hear from most of the Republicans with the smaller in the Senate with the smaller package that they've signed off on the idea of sending a blank check to ever sending a check to everybody regardless of whether or not you've been impacted on this. We'll probably pass the time of needing to do something like that. You need to get it to the businesses into the people who are suffering the most right now. Yes greed agreed.

So that wouldn't happen naturally many in history Donovan part of Legislation Against Gay people who have while they're doing a fucking. Other guys in the asshole while they're killing gay guys in the eighties he's fucking assholes but anyway. Pelosi is just it's just.

You tell the voter, you can't vote for this person because of a certain age, but I think the system is shown. Vote for. The Supreme Court should have that. L. E. Eighteen year terms we all I, mean I don't understand why that's not.

"It's Wednesday may sixth. Give us the scene inside the US capital on Tuesday morning. So it's a totally surreal setup particularly for those of us that are used to watching congress in wood hearing room across the street from the capital which are usually full of people getting ready to watch senators question a witness and instead you had a totally empty room. You're really quiet. Is Few senators gathered at one side wearing masks? They've got pumps of hand sanitizer at the ready totally at the other side of the room. Maybe twenty or thirty feet away is a witness. Who's ready to give them testimony? They wave across the room. Richard Burr the chairman and Mark Warner the top Democrat. Throw out there. Hobos for a little bit of an elbow bump but there's none of the usual energy that we'd see on a typical weekday morning in the capital. And what exactly is happening in this very weird sounding seen what was playing out was a confirmation hearing in this case of John Radcliffe. Who's a republican congressman and a loyal supporter of president trump? Who's now nominee to be the director of national intelligence to oversee the country's seventeen intelligence agencies? Skip ready right at nine thirty Richard Burr. Who's the chairman of the committee? Pulled down his mask and revealed a scraggly uncharacteristic beard that evidently he'd been growing over the last month. I mean who who hasn't exactly and like all. The order called the hearing into session. This hearing will Be a little bit different. It is perhaps the first congressional hearing held during the extenuating circumstances of the pandemic. We have a sparse crowd and expanded bias reflective of the committee's adherence to the guidelines put forth by the Rules Committee and the attending physician senators had certain social distancing requirements. They were spaced out around the room and only allowed to come in to ask their questions in small waves but without any kind of normal energy tension or cross talk that we might be used to in a high-profile Congressional hearing like this this is basically like a socially distant version of the United States. Senate at work. Yes I wish I could also welcome your wife. Michelle and your daughter's Rally Darby. But given our attempts to minimize the number of people in the hearing room I send them my appreciation via C. Span and it was not very compelling. Tv everything about this hearing that you're describing sounds labored and surreal and risk right. I mean it's a confirmation hearing it's not a pandemic Relief Ville. It's not a hospital funding bill. So why is this even happening in this way in person a lot of senators were asking themselves that question in the last few days as they prepared to come back to Washington as well and you know the answer really goes back more than a month. When at the end of March senators found themselves staring down? This increasingly dire situation Wall Street is about to close any minute now. The Dow collapsing. Its worst single day. Loss Ever Ohio and Illinois shutting down restaurants and bars today. Cal problem is job. Losses are adding up and it is across the country and it is in all sectors out front now Jim Bianco and so the House and Senate Republicans and Democrats did. They rarely do has reached a bipartisan agreement on a historic relief package but as they set aside their own kind of partisan interest in issues in very quickly put together this massive two trillion dollar health and economic relief bill that they passed almost unanimously in the house unanimously. In the Senate to all Americans I say help is on the way big help. And quick help. And then basically out of concern for their own health and safety. They left town and they didn't know when they were GONNA come back. They didn't know if it'd be a couple of weeks or a month and almost as soon as they did lawmakers in both chambers start to debate when and how do we get back to Washington and get back to doing this thing kind of few round to debate but it really comes to a head. Basically last week at the very end of April win both the leaders of the House and Senate come out and say Congress will be back in session next month may fourth. That's according to a tweet from house. Majority leader Steny. Hoyer's press office Senate Majority Leader Mitch. Mcconnell made a similar announcement regarding his comeback on Monday may fourth. And we're going to try getting back to normal as best we can but some house. Democrats say that they are worried about the spread of covered nineteen at the Capitol and some say for the House. As soon as they announced that decision they immediately started getting pushback from some of their members. Who were saying. It's not safe for us to come back. We're not ready any decision that we have that when we come back with sergeant arms and the Capitol Physician Democratic leaders in the House consulted Congress. Top doctor who told them really wouldn't be wise at this point to bring Congress back into session and so not twenty four hours after they announced that they would be coming back to the US House of Representatives on Tuesday changed. Course on its house reversed itself and Said No. We're going to stay out of session indefinitely until conditions have improved and we feel that we need to take action on some meaningful legislation but the Senate comes to very different decision. Meanwhile leadership maintains the upper chamber way backed work as usual on May fourth. They have much the same medical advice. They work on the other half of the Capitol building from the House and Mitch McConnell. Who's the top Republican basically sets the schedule in the Senate he calls the shots says that we're going come back into session. And what are the implications of that decision by McConnell practically speaking we convene the Senate so on the one hand you know the Senate is a pretty small body. It's one hundred senators. You know two thirds of them are over the age of sixty so they are at risk but the real impact. When you start to think about it is. There's this huge network of Support Staff. Basically behind each senator the institution as a whole. There's cooks that run dining services. There's people that keep the capital clean. There's Capitol Police stationed everywhere to keep everyone safe. They're all kinds of jobs that you wouldn't think about it. So the decision to bring an institution like the Senate back into session ripples outward and you know could impact hundreds if not a thousand or more people and what exactly is McConnell stated rationale for doing this. I mean given that the House has said it's too great a risk right. What is his argument for. Why one hundred senators from fifty different states have to get on planes and return to Washington well. Mcconnell essentially says after more than a month away there is a lot of work piling up for the Senate would normally be doing and McConnell essentially put senators in league with frontline workers if it's essential that brave health workers grocery store workers truck drivers and many other. Americans continue to carefully show up for work and it's essential that their US senators carefully show up ourselves and support them you know for asking doctors and health professionals and grocery store workers and other government employees to go out and put themselves at risk every day to show up for work We ought to be doing that to. The Senate is integral to responding to this crisis and if we take the right precautions they can do it safely enough to justify being there so basically his cases were all in this together that's right but I think the reality underpinning that is a little bit more complicated and it has to do both with politics and with the aspirations of Auto Republicans and government leaders..
"senate" Discussed on We The People
"I'm Jeffrey Rosen. President and CEO of the National Constitution Center and welcome to we the people a weekly show of constitutional original debate. The National Constitution Center is a nonpartisan nonprofit chartered by Congress to increase awareness and understanding of the constitution among among the American people. The Senate of the United States is on the verge of holding the impeachment trial of president trump and presiding over. That trial will be chief justice. John Roberts to talk about the chief justice's role in the impeachment trial and the history of chief justices and presidential impeachments impeachments. We're joined by two of America's leading experts on impeachment and on the Constitution. Kenneth Starr is of counsel at the Linear Law Firm. Judge Dr has argued thirty six cases before the US Supreme Court he served as Solicitor General of the United States as a circuit judge for the DC circuit and as independent counsel during the Clinton Presidency from nineteen ninety. Four to one thousand nine hundred ninety nine Ken. Thank you so much for joining my pleasure. Thank you and Joan biskupic is a CNN legal analyst who has covered the Supreme Court for Twenty five years. She's previously been an editor in charge for legal affairs. Is it Reuters and a Supreme Court correspondent for The Washington Post and USA Today her most recent book. That chief is a biography of chief. Justice John Roberts Joan. It's wonderful to have you with us. Thank you Jeff. Let's jump right in Joan. What is the most contested question? Chief Justice does Roberts is likely to decide in the upcoming trial of president trump. And how the chief likely to decide it. Well as things stand it could be a question. Having to do with witnesses and evidence given the Dispute Between House Democrats and Senate Republicans at this time as you know his his one responsibility in the constitution. Is that he presides when the president is subject to an impeachment trial but that's all the constitution says and under Senate rules it's actually a very limited role. He's not sitting as a judge. He's not soon as a juror. He's sitting in as a presiding officer her and according to the Senate rules he does not have a vote but he can be asked to decide questions of evidence whether it's relevant or material so one of the house managers as they're they're called when they bring over. The articles of impeachment could try A to put to the chief some question about witnesses now in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine when Real William Rehnquist was in the chair. Those questions about witnesses were worked out by the Senate majority and I would think given the tensions that are brewing. Now that Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell McConnell is going to try to control that question and the Chief Justice John Roberts would be happy to have him control it and finally Jeff if he does does make any kind of determination on witnesses or evidence per the nineteen eighty-six rules he can be overturned by majority of the Senate Senate. Because the bottom line is that this is the Senate's show. The Supreme Court has ruled that the Senate has the sole responsibility to decide whether whether president is convicted or acquitted. And John Roberts will be sitting up there on that data's trying to make sure the proceedings run well but not taking a heavy hand can. Do you agree with Joan that the chief is unlikely to make rulings that he knows might be overruled by a majority of the Senate and when it comes to witnesses could could you imagine Senate Democrats asking chief to compel witnesses after the majority has decided not to hold them in him making a substantive ruling or not. Yes I I think he will make a conscious effort to number one follow history and tradition and so Jonas absolutely right the Clinton model of and Chief Justice Rehnquist. For whom Chief Justice John. Roberts clerked Almost a half century ago The less is is going to be his model and intern. Chief justice rank was used as his model chief justice salmon p chase during the only prior air impeachment that made it to the United States Senate of sitting president in the trial of Andrew Johnson. I I would agree with with the thrust of what Jones sad with perhaps a bit of a tweak and the tweak would be because of his sense that this is the Senate Senate sold power. He should not be making any decision. I'm projecting here the chief would save himself. I count on make any decision that might have a substantive effect an outcome on the substantive judgment of acquittal Or of guilty. This is for the Senate. It's the prerogative of the Senate and thus we know from the Clinton impeachment final point And this is exactly Jones point it was the Senate that worked it out now there. There was cheerful agreement. There were one hundred senators going in in contrast to what is likely to be the case. Now who Agreed no witnesses going in then when the issue emerged again on into the trial after the impeachment managers there's had presented and the president's able lawyers had presented then it was put to a vote and the vote was overwhelmingly seventy two thirty something thing like that overwhelmingly. We do not want life witnesses depositions and so the other thing is that the chief will be aware that there's going to be a lot of negotiation going on between the house managers and the Senate leadership within the Senate itself and his job is to stay above the fray You both mentioned the Clinton Trial and Joan. You just wrote a fascinating article for CNN.com. Based on your study of the files of Chief Justice Rehnquist the peace was called how the last chief justice has handled an impeachment trial of the president of the United States among many fascinating nuggets. You found that Senator Harkin had sent a letter to Rehnquist asking him to adopt limits limits on the house managers questioning a potential witnesses and chief justice rehnquist begged off. Tell us more about that incident and about other things you learned from the Rehnquist files. Yes it was. It was quite a fine because The the actual records from that Impeachment trial are under seal for about fifty years but in Rehnquist personal final files out at the Stanford campus in the Hoover Institution. I was able to find his correspondence while he was presiding over the trial and and As both of you know Bill Rehnquist whatever you thought him on on the law he did have that whimsical side. So of course. He showed up in black robe that was decked out in gold stripes that he had affixed to his robe to his sleeves years earlier inspired by a character in Gilbert and Sullivan's Lancy Fancy and he also quoted from LANC- when he wrote to people to say how it how it went. He said I did nothing in particular and did it very well but but going to the substance of things I found in his in his files. You're exactly right that at one point when he was encouraged to actually I make more of a substantive ruling to intercede he said He did not want to and he said he would claim authority. Only when it's exercise was clearly warranted and the one time probably the the most notable ruling a beyond what was already prearranged When rink think win Chief Justice Rehnquist was dealing with the house managers in the senators head to do with The house managers kept referring in their arguments to the senators as jurors and that was another time when Democrats objected saying they shouldn't be calling us mere jurors and Chief Justice Rehnquist agreed. He sided with them saying that the Senate is not simply a jury in this matter. It's a court in this case. So Oh he he was trying to win. It was timed intercede. He did at other times. He stepped back. But Jeff. You know what it's like across the street three to the Supreme Court. There are no cameras allowed over there. The justices do most of their work in enclosed chambers. So when William Rehnquist it came to preside it was the first time that he was in such a prominent spotlight and he got so many letters from people ranging from things having to do with politics and his voice on the law to the fact that he would stand up intermittently during the proceedings to exercises bad back so so people writing in from all corners of the country to tell them how to fix his back problem. Many thanks for those wonderful tidbits and for the great expressions of concern by fellow back suffers. The quotation is great. We the people listeners. I have to confess I am a fan. It's a it's a private vice that I I have. So here's the homework for the week. The line that rank was was quoting comes from I- ALANTHEA's John said I'm going to read you. The two stands. And if you can write in with the final stanzas to me then I'll send you a a copy of my book conversations with our G here. It goes when Wellington thrashed Bonaparte as every child can tell. The House appears throughout the war. Did nothing in particular and did did it very well. So tell me what comes next and you get the book Okay Ken. You had a central role in the impeachment of President Clinton as the independent counsel and you watched chief justice. Rehnquist presided carefully. What struck you about his performance? What moments jumped? And what do you think. We're his most important substantive rulings I think he had read and Hamilton's federalist seventy eight even though this was not a classic judicial role of Colonel Hamilton said in describing the federal judiciary again. This is an extraordinary unusual role for the chief justice of the United States. That this is to be the least dangerous branch where where power or will is exercised elsewhere but only judgment so I think that Chief Justice Rehnquist steeped as he was in and the trial of President Johnson and aware that President Johnson trial was obviously enormously acrimonious. Ramona's there were eleven articles of impeachment. The reconstruction of the South was at issue and as a serious. If if advocate student of history mystery Chief Justice Rehnquist had to be aware and perhaps his files show this that chief justice chase came under considerable criticism schism after the fact that he was somehow nudging the Senate along in favor of acquittal. Well that would be to Chief Justice Roberts now unconscionable how can I conduct myself so that no fear minded person can say. I was putting a thumb on the scales. And of course that's important for any judge in a judicial capacity to be fair minded and open minded and to listen with respect and so forth so I think there will be this sense. The less the the quip from Gilbert and Sullivan that Chief Justice Rehnquist so colorfully articulated embraced in this context. Is I need to do very little. And refer matters back to the Senate. This is a matter this entrusted to the judgment of the Senate. I think we may hear that over and over again if as I expect. There's a lot of acrimony and a failure to agree as they're happily. There was not that Eh profound profound failure to the contrary during Clinton As the more we learn about the Clinton impeachment the more we know that there was as though the atmosphere was very acrimony is there was an enormous amount of harmony among the all one hundred senators there was not this deep partisan in divine a striking difference indeed Joan what could be surprising about The kind of questions Chief Justice Justice Roberts might be asked to rule on you could imagine questions of executive privilege that some senators might try to take up to the Supreme Court in the middle of the trial if it lasted more than on a couple of days of how could the chief rule on or sidestep those questions. And what are the curveballs. He might face sure..
"senate" Discussed on Article II: Inside Impeachment
"Hey Chris as you know. Sometimes it's good to just take a step back from the day to day onslaught of news and take our broader. Look the issues. That's what I'm doing each week on my podcast. Why is this happening? We're exploring topics ranging from school segregation to climate change. Well the way that I think of it is. Climate Change will be to the twenty first century. What maternity west of the nineteenth century? It'll be the central subject of questions about economic justice. Everything you care about in the world will be affected by climate and digging deep with guests uniquely qualified to analyze issues from incarceration to race relations as you know for the first time in our history at the national level level whites are on the verge of losing their majority status in twenty years. And I think it's no coincidence that our politics are getting more tribal. Join me for wisest happening. New episodes episodes every Tuesday. Wherever you get your podcasts so frank on this question of whether each side will get it to call witnesses? That's really important to this debate. Who are we talking about? What witnesses do you think each side would plan to call so Senate Minority leader? Her Chuck Schumer has sent a letter to majority leader. McConnell asking specifically for four witnesses actually ended up sending that letter to the entire Senate it. That's all we want the facts. We don't know how these witnesses will testify. We don't know what the documents if we get them. Our hands on them will say. Maybe they'll be expelled. Tori of president trump. Or maybe they'll be further condemning president trump's actions we don't know but we should see them regardless of what what they say and two of the notable witnesses would be John Bolton and Mick Mulvaney the acting chief of staff at the White House the four or witnesses that Schumer asked for were not witnesses that we heard from in the house impeachment inquiry now. McConnell has responded saying there's no precedent precedent for hearing for new witnesses in this trial that that the reason why the impeachment inquiry exists is to get all the information and send it over to the Senate to be able to you decide whether or not to convict now. In the ninety nine trial of President Clinton they had witnesses that they deposed instead of actually having them live on the Senate floor. which technically you could do? They had them in a room and they were. They videotaped a question and answer and then they ended up playing those questions and answers on the Senate four for senators to watch now the difference there. Is that those those witnesses that they depose which included Monica Lewinsky. Were actually witnesses. That had already ready been heard from as a part of the investigation that resulted in articles of impeachment passing in the House. This would be different situation. Schumer is asking for something different. Here he's asking for more he's asking for particular witnesses that have information related to this case that have not been heard from the only other issue here. Is that what this would potentially open up. The Senate to is the flipside witnesses that Republicans might actually want to talk to. Which is somebody like? Joe Biden Hunter Biden. There's a number of different people. Republicans have threatened to call in the event that they're witnesses that Democrats want you the idea of having witnesses witnesses shortness. In fact I talked to the Senator Joni Ernst a couple of weeks ago and I said well would you be open to having a Mulvaney Bolton testify before the Senate you WanNa hear Mulvaney or like people want to hear from fighting. It's kind of a back and forth that they're going to have to do because they need fifty one senators to agree to have any kind of witnesses at all. There might be a back and forth negotiation. That would if you end up opening up the Senate to Democratic witness you also might open up the Senate to a Republican witness so free it seems like this issue of fairness is hanging everything whether we're talking about witnesses or whether we're talking about if Speaker Pelosi is even going to hand over these articles of impeachment and start a Senate trial. There seems to be the the big thing that both sides are using as they point back and forth to each other. Can you just walk us through. Wind did this issue becomes such a flash point and how of both sides been using it. Will I mean the idea of fairness is is obviously an important one. It's obviously also defined by either side in different ways. The idea of leader McConnell saying I am not an impartial. Juror was a notable thing for him to say. Also D- partisan political decision to impeach. We will have largely partisan outcome in the Senate. I'm not impartial about this at all but at the same time you know a Senate trial and impeachment trial is inherently political. He's going to advocate for his person for his president. Now the reality is that you know. The the senators are going to take an oath. If they're going to take an oath. But at the beginning of the trial saying I solemnly swear that in all things appertaining to the trial of the impeachment I will do impartial justice according to the constitutions and laws so help me God. That isn't that they're going to be taking but again. They are not technically impartial. Jury this is not a court of law. There's not the same expectations. Well Frank. I have learned a lot from this now. Some of our listeners. Have some questions for you. Kamal from Lakewood California says could certain senators. Just choose to not show up for the final vote or abstain from the vote. So that's a good question. I think that there's a a little bit of an open answer. There I mean I think you know. Senators are compelled to be there for the trial. I think that senators have said that they would be there for the trial that they would do. Do their duty. There's been a little bit of discussion about what happens if you know Senate. Trial is happening during debate. Day Whether or not there could be an agreement amongst the Senate which would require basically all one hundred senators to move the trial time or the trial date maybe push today or move it a little bit earlier. Technically President Clinton's trial. We saw the trial happened. Start at usually one o'clock pm and go until around five or six o'clock They could move that but I mean I in in reality all one hundred senators are expected to be in their seats for the entire time. And that's one of the things that McConnell has been kind of dangling over senators as a way way to get them to realize that this is going to be heavy and potentially long process. They're going to be there sitting in their seats and they really Kinda. Don't you have an option and then pat from Dallas says can achieve justice overruled. The Senate vote well so the chief justice as we kind of already already established could have an active or a passive role and. I think the expectation is that he would probably have a passive role meaning. He would leave a lot of the questions to the body of the the Senate to vote on if there is a motion. Made if there's an objection made he would let the Senate decided to vote now. Hypothetically the chief justice could overrule all emotion but again any motion by or any decision made by the chief. Justice is subject to a responding motion by any senator her which would then be put up for a vote. The short answer is no fifty-one senators. Have the most power during the Senate trial that is just the reality. What the chief justice? We'll do is just oversee this trial and make sure that it doesn't get unruly and take their cues from the parliamentarian and from the folks that will let them know let him know how they expect the Senate trial to go so frank last question for me. This just comes from talking to family over the holidays the people want to know. Is this a foregone conclusion that Republicans control the Senate so the president won't be convicted and should they even be paying attention to what happens. That's next to the Senate and if so why should they. It's not a ridiculous thing to think that this feels like a foregone conclusion and McConnell has said as much he's basically typically assured that the president will not be convicted. They need sixty seven votes to do so. That would take twenty Republicans to join all democrats and that's a they've a highly unlikely scenario for them to vote to convict and remove the president now. Obviously we've seen the president tweet about a million times about this this. We've seen his surrogates argue. Why they feel like this impeachment is in their words Sham but the reality is is that a lot of that has been very much focused on the process and this this trial is going to be very different? It's going to be worth watching simply because it's going to be more austere almost in a way. There's not going to be the yelling and the screaming and the crazy motions and things like that put forward and end. Democrats or Republicans giving speeches in the middle of MARKUPS. And so we're going to hear a clear argument from the house managers. Why they feel that? What what president trump did was impeachable? And we're going to actually hear the defense. The White House argue. Why it's not and that's something? I think that whether or not there are enough enough votes for the president to be convicted or not is definitely worth watching. That's a great argument. Well we will certainly be watching and we will be watching for your great coverage from the floor. Our thanks Frank Q.. Article two inside. Peach is produced by Isabel Angel.

Has that back to school feeling senators and members of congress heading heading back to the capital getting ready to do the people's work slates jim newell he is here to burst my bubble. Everyone will come back and you know why they're gonna have a lot of work to do on a government spending bills and they may wanna take up some gun legislation will see if they're still the movement to do that but it's not really too dramatic. I know people just come back pretty quickly and pick up right where they left off which is doing very little gym lives in the muck muck of the swamp so he can see this vast disconnect between what politicians say and what they're actually able to do. Just you're watching democratic debate with this guy. He's like medicare for all free college. They can't even reauthorize violence against women act over here. I mean being a congress. Supporter like has ruined me. You know in terms of you know having any hope really just i watch it. I'm just like this is never going to happen. You know you can promise promise everything but if you don't change the rules. The chances of it happening are pretty slim. One of those rules that some people in washington are starting to think we should change is the filibuster that's because it's become all but a requirement that legislation passed the senate with sixty votes instead of a simple majority you make the case like why should we eliminate the filibuster. Well i think right now. We have a system where we haven't election. One party does really well they take over the government and then for some reason nothing that they campaign non can get through congress. I think people don't really understand this and they start to wonder what's the point of these elections. If nothing could happen you know why. Why do we even bother doing this. It might encourage people to participate more in the electoral process and it would also just plainly make more sense that you know if if you win an election by a big margin then you have the opportunity to actually do what you campaigned on. I also think and this might be stretched but if you then have have the ability to pass what you want and you know that the pressure is going to be on you to actually do what you campaigned on then maybe when you campaign you might be able to more or realistic in what you say like there are a lot of people who you know campaign on the wildest promises knowing that they're not actually going to get anywhere in the senate because of the filibuster so maybe if the filibuster is gone and you're gonna be on the line do something we we can have a little bit more coherent and pragmatic debate during during campaigns when someone like elizabeth warren says she wants big structural change. This is the kind of thing she's talking about. Getting rid of the filibuster former senate majority leader harry reid said he wants to call the filibuster to both of them. They've noticed they can't keep proposing big things unless the senate it goes through some fundamental change. The senate is sort of at a point right now where needs to decide what it wants to be you know is going to allow authorities to govern earn or is it going to try to hold onto this idea that consensus can be reached the senate game where the filibuster would effectively be this official acknowledgement that consensus can be reached in the political culture anymore. Does that make you does that. Mean you optimistic or pessimistic optimistic about what uh-huh very jim newell answer today on the show washington is about to head back to work but will they be able to get anything done and if they can't should lawmakers consider drastic steps to ease the blockade none of this i mean none of this makes the optimistic. It's really unhealthy political culture right now. It's just a matter of of managing. I'm mary harris. You're listening to what next stick with us people can get a little confused about why the senate is in more of a legislation relation factory part of the reason stall out is because congress is divided senate majority leader. Mitch mcconnell isn't just about to pass a bunch of democratic bills also sent over by the house that is not his style but the other reason install is because the senate is divided and the filibuster makes it impossible to advance legislation even if you've got a slim majority when i think about the filibuster get these really specific images in my mind and i think of wendy davis on the floor of the texas state senate in her pink sneakers talking about abortion clinics and why it's important to keep them open or i think of jimmy stewart in mr smith goes to washington you like speaks on the floor of the senate for twenty four hours arguing against corruption that actually ends with the senator he's talking about running onto the floor and saying i'm not fit for office is very dramatic thing. What did those images get wrong. There are a little more <hes> romanticised than the way it really is. There's also times where the filibuster you know an image that may we might associate with it as well as when strom thurmond gave a twenty four hour filibuster block civil rights legislation so it's not always you know this wonderful <hes> patriotic duty so so the filibuster it's basically an outgrowth of the senate not really having many rules covering debate. I mean the senate rules about debate. It says if a senator like to speak the chairs shall recognize that person and they can speak for as long as they want so the idea behind a filibuster is just to you speak as long as you want us. Whatever delay tactics you can to try and push back vote in the hope that you either persuade the public or persuade the the people pushing a certain bill to drop it or you just take up so much time that the majority leader decides. It's not worth pursuing this anymore. Just wear them down yeah. Yeah just wear them down. So i mean it is you could say true. Filibuster is really where you're just holing floor one person talking for as long as possible but it's become so vague as to i just mean using the senate's lack of rules about to debate try and make it sort of a pain in the ass to try to pass something. Can you walk doc me through how this works like win. The house sends the senate something they want past. How does the filibuster intervene and to get in the way. The way it works. Normally is just you know. The majority leader looks around realizes something isn't going to get sixty votes and then doesn't even bring it up their recent examples of this that you might remember. Let's look at the the manchin toomey gun bill after the sandy hook shooting in twenty thirteen when they tried to do this. It was brought up. There was a gun debate open. This amendment was brought up so there is a motion to proceed onto this amendment so then that got filibustered meaning you know there was just a very lengthy debate and there's an effort to cut off debate that effort to proceed to it got fifty four votes think it needed sixty so it just failed. They never proceeded to considering that. I mean that's an example of how it worked. Got a minority you know at least forty one senators senators does not want something to happen and they're going to use up a lot of floor time. If that comes to the floor so the majority leader just decides not to bring it up in the first place. I mean that's practically what it is now. It's not like it doesn't actually get to the floor a lot. It's just mitch mcconnell knowing that this is going to be blocked by by the the minority and they're gonna take too much time and he'd rather do something else during that time so he doesn't bring it up and the filibuster wasn't part of the founders original idea of how how this body would work was it no. There's no mention of it in the constitution or anything i mean the way it developed was the way senate. Rules are written to just allow open ended debate until the body reaches consensus. I mean that was obviously being exploited. In the form of filibuster so around world war one they finally introduced what's called the cloture rule which which allows debates be cut off they of course because it's the senate have to use a word like cloture. They can't use closure or ending debate. When did the filibuster like dirty like. When did it become a dirty word. I'm really in the last fifteen years. That's when the number of cloture richer votes really started increasing exponentially on pretty routine mares of business. I mean nominations both the court and the executive brands as well as legislations. I mean it's become routine now where it really didn't used to be. I mean used to be a fairly rare thing when someone would have to introduce a cloture petition to cut off debate but now it's just sort of you know standard operating procedure for pretty much anything that comes up anything of any importance i should say the first couple years ears of obama's presidency and that's really when mitch mcconnell made a pretty big discovery which was if you stop stop the president's legislation. You won't necessarily get blamed for being obstructionists as hard as democrats tried to make mitch mcconnell the obstructionists. The public won't really blame um you. They'll blame the president and the majority party for not getting things done so that's sort.

"And while of i guess this is his job in interest he was fairly optimistic about prospects for getting this through the senate uh with republican votes uh they unrolled that unveiled it on thursday morning to the senate republican conference the entire conference and nobody so far is saying they won't vote for it there are some people who say well you know i prefer this or that but that it's a totally different vibe kim than there was on healthcare and that is that suggests may be the the the the republicans understand that they really do have to do this uh or um they're going to be dead in 2018 yeah it's remarkable they're feeling optimistic on on a lot of different levels one is because they are actually sticking to the schedule that they put out the house ways and means committee got its version of the bill outta committee on thursday the senate released its details next week the house hopes to pass this thing on the floor uh they're going to have a series of amendments will see how that happens but ty wise this is going forward i think they feel really pleased that they got some groups that they were worried that would not get the support of a key to that that then fipb the national federation of independent businesses that's the group that tends to support the lobby outfit for most small businesses in the country at an app ibn sort of withheld its support it was concerned about the way that small businesses were treated it has ended up coming out to spark both the house and senate bell.

"To elect women to the senate under the old system than you do under the new system we don't get our first female senator till 1928 two she's appointed the first electedwoman senator comes in 1932 if they had had to contend with the indirect election system were they had to go and get the favour of the state legislature to gain office it will take an even longer to get women to into office because they didn't have those kinds of connections and state government so i think the fact that we have twenty one women senators in the senate today is also due in part to the fact that we now have a direct election system and what about a better functioning senate one that can work more effectively to serve its citizens it's interesting because this constitutional amendment like many others has had consequences intended an unintended it did get rid of the deadlocks and he got rid of course of the bribery of legislators it also helped to cement a stronger bond between senators in their constituents because now they had to go directly to the voter rather than just to the state legislature and i think that in the long run is had a positive impact in many ways it also had some unintended consequences no senators had to go out and start campaigning for instance that led to questions of campaignfinance questions a campaign finance reform in it's been a long story to where we are today where we have millions of dollars spent time senate elections.

"By 19 on nine we're living in a united states were almost every issue is touched by the issue of race and that becomes an important component in the direct election system because the only way that idaho's senator william bora could convince his peers to let the proposed constitutional amendment for direct election actually leave the judiciary subcommittee and go to the senate floor for a vote was if he agreed to tack on to it something that the southern democrats wanted a race rider the race rider basically stipulates that if the constitution is amended and we switchover to allowing voters to directly elect their senators then shorer that's fine but the states themselves have the ability to control the terms of the elections the federal government won't have any say now the reason this was called a race rider is that what these southern states were essentially saying between the lines was we don't want african americans in our state to participate in electing senators so if we're going to have popularly elected senators then we better be able to create whatever voting terms we see fit in other words we better be able to exclude any one we want to when you're talking about the 17th amendment the two sections of the constitution that you have to think about there's article 1 section three which is the part that defines house senate elections happening and that's what they're trying to change from indirect to direct election but there's also article 1 section four which says that the times places in manner of holding elections for senators and representatives shall be prescribed in each state by the legislature thereof and it says the congress may at any time by law maker alter such regulations and it's that phrase that becomes the target of the debate in the senate in nineteen on nine in nineteen tan in 1911.

"I like to think that i am generally pretty optimistic person but i wouldn't want anyone to leave the book thinking that the procedures that i write about our a solution to all of our problems and part of that is because as i show in the book when they're created a tend to be created in situations where they're going to help the majority party in the senate so right now the republicans mm past periods the democrats but they've been created when creating them is going to help the majority party probably stay in power in the future and as i showing the book in the context of reconciliation there are also used in ways that should help the majority party stay in power in the future and so as a result can be challenging to get members of the minority to go along with the idea of creating them which can be necessary since after all their included in regular pieces of legislation and a regular piece of legislation has to itself overcome the threat of a filibuster so we can and do you see them in particular cases we've seen a couple of new ones crop up in recent years there's a point that i talk about in the food collusions the book about how they've been used to help us get out of a couple of our recent showdowns over the debt limit which still so a an issue that's coming back soon um so they're important than they have helped usher in tow lost some important policy changes but i don't see them as the big solution to getting out of all of our thank you again books social thank you very much as.
