Senate Democrats and Republicans debate response to police reform
"Michael on the day George Floyd was laid to rest in Texas senators in the nation's capital were discussing ways to change policing and address systemic racism in America the Senate's top Democrat Chuck Schumer says the justice in policing act introduced in the house this week is the best solution to reform the criminal justice system if we pursue this bill the public's on our side and we will do very well but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says Republicans are devising their own bill led by the only black Republican in the U. S. Senate of as senator Tim Scott to lead a group that is working on a proposal to allow us to respond to the obvious racial discrimination that we've seen on full display on our television screens over the last two weeks and what is the appropriate response by the federal government senator McConnell says Tim Scott is the only member of the caucus who can truly shed light on the situation I think the best way for the Senate Republicans to go forward on this is to listen to one of our own who's had these experiences he's had them since he's been in the United States Senate and with his guidance and leadership we're going to come together with a proposal that we think makes the most sense the congressional black caucus led the effort behind the house bill and senator Schumer says the Senate really should go with that this bill has been carefully thought out senator McConnell says the Senate Republican bill will be carefully thought out to you but as for when he might be released at some point in the near future will have recommendations to be made that's what worries senator Schumer member when there was a lot of gun violence and McConnell said all our caucus is going to discuss it we're going to deal with it said and then they never did I'm worried the same thing would happen here still senator McConnell is under no illusions that it will be easy to craft a bill dealing with this discrimination which persist here some fifty years after the nineteen sixty four Civil Rights element nineteen sixty five civil rights bill that we're still wrestling with America's original

"Well hopes are pretty high that a deal is going to result in another big package to speed help to small businesses and others Linda Kenyon is following the breaking news for us Michael it's a stimulus deal it represents the very essence of compromise this is treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin Sunday on CNN's state of the union I'm hopeful that we can reach an agreement that the Senate can pass this tomorrow and that the house can take it up on Tuesday he's talking about a deal to add three hundred billion dollars to the small business administration's paycheck protection program that program which quickly ran out of money provides forgivable loans to small businesses so they can keep their employees on the payroll other businesses are closed due to the coronavirus Democrats have been holding out for additional money for hospitals and state and local governments to but Republicans held fast against that saying that replenishing the paycheck protection program should be a standalone bill after bipartisan talks with the treasury secretary the early contours of the bill show it will include seventy five billion dollars for hospitals twenty five billion for corona virus testing and fifty billion for the economic injury disaster loans Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer is cautiously optimistic you know you got a lot of a lot of details let it down and I's and cross the tease but I am I am very very hopeful senator Schumer appeared on CNN's state of the union as did secretary Mnuchin they were the only ones feeling optimistic the negotiations are going on or very close price president Mike pence on fox news Sunday I think every American has seen the success of the president's program to provide payroll support and and we're gonna work to expand on that so that no one working in a small business in America would have to worry about missing a paycheck during the trial and and difficulty of the corona virus good path house speaker Nancy Pelosi also on fox news Sunday was in agreement further indication that a deal is near house Majority Leader Steny Hoyer sent a notice to members yesterday this is the house could meet as early as Wednesday to consider the legislation that notice gives members time to get back to Washington to vote on the bill which if all goes according to plan the Senate could vote on as soon as today since the Senate like the house is out of town due to the coronavirus the Senate will try to streamline the voting process and pass the bill by unanimous consent this would avoid the need to bring every member back to Washington and only a few people would likely be in the chamber at the time of the

Texas Senator John Cornyn on the $2 Trillion Rescue Bill
"You here we're going to have back the senior center the great state of Texas it is senator John Cornyn John how are you I'm doing a great job good to be with you it really good to hook up with you I told people yesterday that I would have you on the we had technical issues on my end that we didn't end up having you on but actually is kind of auspicious because we have bigger news today late late last night you know we heard from Mitch McConnell we think we have a deal and then it turns out in fact it was a unanimous deal I mean how are you breathe a little bit better you feel better about what we're looking at now yeah I'd think yeah I mean it's as painful as the process was that it was needlessly extended by from the gamesmanship on the backend we had ninety six hundred votes Dave Roberts and for senators didn't weren't there for various reasons but yeah I think I mean we should we need to throw the American people a lifeline both from a public health perspective and from a financial perspective and I think we we did the best we could and I'm sure it's not perfect but up I'm glad we got it done I think gamesmanship is a nice way to put it John to be honest with you I mean it seems as though you guys had a deal three or four days earlier Nancy Pelosi comes back from California who last time I checked is in the house she's not in the Senate whisper something to Chuck Schumer and then suddenly everything fell apart what is that all about I've never seen the house of representatives or the leader of the house the speaker have that much sway over the Senate what is that all about well but we knew she needed to pass it in the house and so she had some leverage and she knew it just like Chuck Schumer now we have some leverage even though we've been working on a bipartisan basis to come up with the deal and once we had a deal then they wanted to get a pound of flesh for their pet projects and unfortunately while we were able to limit most of it there's still some junk in the bill but I would say the overwhelmingly positive development finally but it just went on too long and people who needed help I didn't get it as fast as I would have liked but now it's on the way senator John Cornyn will get into the the the nuts and bolts about what is what does get done in the bill but I I wanna I wanna make sure to go here and and we remind those who are listening and watching that the left wanted to get things like solar power wind power let's cut emissions on airplanes for god's sake let's let's do this that or the other pet project is green thing here and it looks fine it's a bunch of blokes who want to make sure that Planned Parenthood would continue get financed me when they added that stuff in there it would have been easy for those of you on the right to say Hey we'll let the American people suffer and expose them for who they are and as you say most of that stuff went away but still there was some of the Kennedy center gets millions NPR and PBS gets billions for some reason John was it was at the point where you're saying to yourself I have to give people in my state and we have to get people in the United States some relief right now and we'll call them out on their politics that they played maybe in November is that how you look at it yeah is it me or is it an ordinary legislation sometimes the best answer is to say no yeah I am too hold all people accountable if the next election here I felt like this is such an emergency that we had to come up with a product and again I think ninety six senators voting for the bill speaks speaks for itself yeah that's not perfect as well you know they say you two thing you don't want to watch you progress one is sausage making and the others legislation and that's still true today so I think we get that we got it done now we're looking to see how do we implement this bill I talked to a number of folks back in the state trying to make sure that we actually make this bill work you can get the money to the people who needed the most as fast as possible it's funny to talk to bill Frist to some years ago he said the same exact thing it's like sausage making you don't really want to know and and I I get it in at the end of the day let's talk about what this does because there's a lot of speculation I'm an employee I've been laid off or furloughed do I get help I'm a company that will go out of business if I don't get some help do I get help do I have to pay the money back is there a limitation on buying back stock is limitation on CEO pay or bonuses if you can I know that's a that's eighteen different things but people call my show every days you know they want to know those specific answers so who gets what and are we are we protecting both companies and individuals which I think is very important well Joe like you I try to use social media to help us share information with the public market stage right with the public so people can look at my Twitter feed at John Cornyn and wild I've tried to try to summarize it but here let me up let me do it verbally here first of all people who are out of work through no fault of their own not getting paid we're sending them a check through the IRS it should be there in two weeks hopefully three weeks at the latest try to bridge them two of the unemployment insurance process we've seen a huge influx of new applications for unemployment insurance revenue that this other beloved demand so we beefed up the benefit we extended it for thirteen weeks and so hopefully between a combination of direct payments and unemployment compensation we can get people past this past this crisis but we also need to make sure their jobs available for them when we come out of that right and that's why we provided help to small businesses if they keep their focus on the payroll will we provide them loans and in some cases it may be forgiven just to maintain their relationship with their employee base we want to make sure that when we come out of this that people go back to work and continue lives as normal and then to the largest employers to hire hundreds of thousands if not millions of people in America and we have an economic stabilization program through the federal reserve where their lend lend money for a period of time they'll have to pay back its not a bailout and dug deep to get them to this crisis because what's happening is a lot of businesses since they don't have any demand for their services at your hotel or airline or the like right you're not earning any income but you are still having to pay your bills were trying to help them through that as long as the special plane is detectable is possible it's senator John Cornyn Republican great state of Texas John I'm wondering people were concerned about about a stock buy back about CEOs getting bonuses or pay raises order stipulates is that you can't do that yes there are and those were really not controversial items because India but I noticed that senator Schumer after he delayed the passage of the bill touted that his accomplishments but most of what he claimed as an accomplishment the stuff that was already in the building right away or that was not controversial but I guess you had to claims he had to justify the reason for his delay and actually getting the bill passed and help the people who need it senator John Cornyn as I understand it it's going to be based on your twenty nineteen earnings many people are that's if you if you filed already for twenty nineteen if you have it it'll look at your twenty eighteen earnings is that correct that's correct so it so people can go back and see okay this is what I mean twenty eighteen I'll get what would have been the same pay as I was receiving them how bout people better and we maybe who were unemployed just got jobs at the beginning of this year maybe in January they had a seasonal job turned into a full time job and now they're laid off it didn't have a you know some sort of I arrest record you know before that maybe they were on unemployment are they still gonna get something exactly worked out through the company how does that work yeah we've we've got filled some of those gaps in traditional unemployment insurance so that if you're an independent contractor or your seasonal employee you don't have to wait or have proof of a long standing job in order to get the benefits right we tried we tried to up by the safety net for everybody hopefully we got everybody it's included but if we didn't vote will come back in and try again senator John Cornyn go follow him online a matter where you are in the country go follow him at John Cornyn on Twitter and he's very receptive he does talk to people constituents and and beyond and yet go see the post that he made about what this bill does I just want to ask you what while I have you a lot of people are concerned about this April twelfth date I'm not I want to be open for business I and I don't want to be open for business so people die from cold nineteen or corona virus whatever call you today but I think that America being open for business shows our resiliency and ought to see it sooner than later is there any thought process about maybe saying California your hot spot New Yorker hotspot Washington state your hot spot middle America can slowly but surely start getting back to work around Easter is that possible what you're we're only human and we need hope in our lives yeah and I think of what the president tried to do is provide a hopeful message he understands and we all understand that if the if the if the science doesn't work if we still have hot spots that we're not going to be able to open our schools and businesses only in all parts of the country but just like governor Abbott did in Texas he didn't order one size fits all he looked it up to the more congested areas or urban areas and cities for the mayors and county judges to make orders as they see fit yeah but just like the rest of the country you know Texas we have more calcium people in some parts of the state and there's no reason to lock them down and I saw that the the the president is now ask the governors to sort of break their states in terms of the vulnerability to this virus and begin to gradually phase in re opening the country at the appropriate time a senator John Cornyn always appreciate the access of the time so glad you voted for this thing although I really wish the poor could been stripped out I'm gonna make sure that between now and November let everybody listening and watching know that there was garbage added to this simply because it was a political play by the left Hey you guys in the right I think you did you did the right thing by saying we have to help the American people now there's a concern by by people about how China was closed a closed off about this didn't tell us for weeks if not months that was happening they didn't update the I guess one of the chief scientist on on corona virus wanted to tell the world he ended up dead either from corona virus or by the Chinese government via a virus is there some sort of ramification we can bring maybe make them you know but bring us some remote oration about this John is there a way to get some money back from China in how they harmed us so badly well I think the most important thing we can do Joe is to make sure that we reduce our vulnerabilities yeah I think what this is demonstrators we have a lot of vulnerabilities to the virus the generated an eight animal food market that then jumped into a human beings and then created this pandemic and what I'm what I intend to do is to ask the National Academy of sciences as well as our intelligence community to report back to Congress and tell us what they beat feels of the comprehensive picture and then to make policy recommendations for what Congress can do one of the things we need to do is eliminate our dependency on China for medical supplies medical equipment and medicine and we need to make sure that the last pandemic that emanates from China and given their closed and secret society the Communist Party doesn't want to be embarrassed by the facts here we really can't trust what they're telling us what we have to make sure this doesn't happen again but one last thing was senator John Cornyn I always appreciate the time of the axis John the last question has to be might there be a silver lining here maybe as you say we'll start making our own medical equipment medical supplies maybe will start manufacturing even more so here in America and not be reliant on a far away land that we have no idea really what's happening inside that land could this be a positive outcome at the end of all this I think so because you know we we always try to learn from our mistakes and clearly well I don't think this pandemic was anybody's fault here in the United States yeah we we were we were more concerned about nuclear weapons and terrorism that when were pandemics Bill Gates years ago Ross said this is the biggest threat we have been here that being right yeah and we just we need to learn from it that we learn from it and make our our country safer and more prosperous in the process then I would say it's worth it but something good will come out of it it is senator John Cornyn appreciate the hard work you do for us here in Texas and for the American people John

low at the moment at the health secretary said that could change quickly lawmakers from both parties have voiced concern about the administration's response so as the president gets set to come to the White House briefing room microphone he does face that challenge not to induce panic but also to show that he is taking this seriously despite those tweets where he has seemingly tried to play down the threat we heard from at least one Republican senator today John Kennedy of Louisiana saying to the head of homeland security do we have enough respirators or not and and the the centers for disease control was pressed how many tests can the country conduct as of today and some Democrats have blamed the administration for failing to come clean on many of these are questions so we will see what the president is prepared to say any moment now as he walks into the White House briefing room to talk about the response to coronavirus as his administration faces what many medical experts say is an inevitable outbreak in the United States of the briefing room the White House briefing room which hasn't gotten the the the work out of late is now full of waiting president trump for the first time in that briefing room by the way since January of twenty nineteen and then not appearance he has a he declined to take questions so if he does take questions from all those reporters that are packed in there this would mark the first time in his administration he is taking questions inside the White House briefing room we'll see he has members of his cabinet that will be arrayed beside him as he gets set to take the podium to talk about the administration's response to corona virus that the president of course has been keeping a close eye on the the viruses climbing through Asia and Europe and it's also been closely watching the Dow Jones industrial average because that has taken a nose dive as of late amid fears that the virus is not contained in that will have been increasingly damaging effects on the economy not only the the American economy but the economy around the world companies like Microsoft came out today to say that the coronavirus is taking a toll much of what they manufacture in China is is taking a hit the administration has asked Congress for two and a half billion dollars to respond to the corona virus threats and house speaker Paul Losi said today that is not nearly enough and accusing the administration of an immediate response and so it seems Congress may be prepared for more president trump has now opened the doors to the briefing room followed by vice president Mike pence you're listening to live coverage from ABC thank you very much everybody thank you very much before I begin I'd like to extend my deepest condolences to the victims and families in Milwaukee Wisconsin earlier today wicked murder opened fire at a Molson Coors brewing company plant taking the lives of five people number of people were wounded so badly wounded our hearts break for them and their loved ones we send our condolences will be with them and it's a terrible thing terrible five our hearts go out to the people of Wisconsin then to the families thank you very much I've just received another briefing from a great group of talented people following the virus that is going around to various parts of the world we have through some very good early decisions decisions that were actually ridiculed at the beginning we closed up our borders through flights coming in from certain areas areas that were hit by the corona virus and hit pretty hard and we did it very early a lot of people thought we shouldn't have done it that early and we did and it turned out to be a very good thing and the number one priority from our standpoint is the health and safety of the American people unless you have unit when I made that decision because of all we've done the risk to the American people remains very low we have the greatest experts in the war really in the world right here the people that are called upon by other countries when things like this happen we we're ready to adapt and we're ready to do whatever we have to as the disease spreads if it spreads as most of you know the the level that we've had in our country is very low and those people are getting better a we think that in almost all cases there the better getting we have a total of fifteen we took in some from Japan you heard about that because they're American citizens and they're in quarantine and they're getting better too but we felt we had an obligation to do that it could have been as many as forty two and we found that we were it was just an obligation we felt that we had we could have left them and that would have been very bad very bad I think Merican papal and they're recovering of the fifteen people three original fifteen as I call them eight of them have returned to their homes to stay in their homes until fully recovered one is in the hospital and five have fully recovered and one is we think in pretty good shape and did serve in between hospital and going home so we have a total of but we have a total of fifteen people and they're they're in the process of recovering with some already having fully recovered we started out by looking at certain things that we've been working with the hill very very carefully very strongly and I think we are very good bipartisan spirit for money we were asking for two and a half million and we think that's a lot but the Democrats and I guess senator Schumer wants is that much more than that and normally life I say we'll take it we'll take it if they want to give more will do more we're gonna spend whatever's appropriate hopefully we're not gonna have to spend so much because we really think we've done a great job in keeping it down to a minimum and again we've had tremendous success tremendous success beyond what people would have thought now the same time you do have some outbreaks in some countries Italy and various countries are having some difficulty China you know about where it started I spoke with president xi we had a great talk he's working very hard I have to say is working very very hard and if you can count on the reports coming out of China that spread has gone down quite a bit the infection seems to have calmed down over the last two days as opposed to getting larger it's actually gotten smaller in one instance where we think we can be it's somewhat reliable it seems to have gotten quite a bit smaller with respect to the money that said being negotiated they can do whatever they want I mean they can we'll do that don't have we're requesting two and a half some Republicans would like us to get four and some Democrats would like this to get eight to half and we'll be satisfied whatever whatever it is we're bringing in a specialist very highly regarded specialist tomorrow who works actually at the state department very very tremendously talented in doing this I want you to understand something that shocked me when I saw that I spoke with the doctor felt she on this and I was really amazed and I think most people are amazed to hear that the flu in our country kills from twenty five thousand people to sixty nine thousand people a year that was shocking to me and so far if you look at what we have with the fifteen people and their recovery one is one is pretty sick but the hopefully we'll recover but the others are in great shape but think of that twenty five thousand to sixty nine thousand over the last ten years we've lost three hundred and sixty thousand these are people that have died from the flu from what we call the flu Hey did you get your flu shot and that something now what we've done is we've stopped non US citizens from coming into America from China that was done very early on with screening people we have been at a very high level of screening people coming into the country from infected areas we have in quarantine those infected and those at risk we have a lot of great quarantine facilities for rapidly developing vaccine and they can speak to you the professionals can speak to you about that the vaccine is coming along well and speak into the doctors with like this is something that we can develop fairly rapidly a vaccine for the future and coordinate with the support of our partners we have great relationships with all of the countries that we're talking about some it's fairly large number of countries so much one person and many countries have no problem whatsoever and we'll see what happens but we're very very ready for this for anything whether it's going to be a break out of larger proportions or whether or not where you know we're at that very low level and we want to keep it that way so we're at the low level as they get better we take them off the list so that we're going to be pretty soon at only five people that we could be at just one or two people over the next short period of time so we've had very good luck the Johns Hopkins I guess it is a highly respected great place they did it is still a a study comprehensive the country's best and worst prepared for an epidemic and the United States is now we were rated number one we're rated number one for being prepared this is a list of different doctors and I want to get in your special food for the fifty giga this is a list of the different countries United States is rated number one most prepared United Kingdom Netherlands Australia Canada Thailand Sweden Denmark South Korea Finland

"If the Senate decides to call witnesses in the impeachment trial of president trump former national security adviser John Bolton now says he would honor a subpoena Phil Mattingly gets us up to date on what that might mean white with a single statement former national security adviser John Bolton jolted an impeachment process that has been stuck in a stalemate Bolton who declined to testify in the house impeachment inquiry now saying he has concluded quote if the Senate issues a subpoena for my testimony hi I am prepared to comply it's a shift with major ramifications in the Senate house Democrats are treating impeachment like a political toy for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and democratic leader Chuck Schumer have been battling for weeks over whether to subpoena witnesses a trial without all the facts is a farce Bolton's possible testimony could be key given his central role in the democratic investigation highlighted in the house and by his lawyer who in November said Bolton quote was personally involved in many of the events meetings and conversations about which you have already received testimony as well as many relevant meetings and conversations that have not yet been discussed the new development underscore a democratic strategy to withhold sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate I hope for a and believe there's a decent chance that for Republicans will join us if they do we will have a fair trial for Republicans joining with all forty seven of the chamber's Democrats these all Schumer would need to fashion a trial along the lines he's been pushing for with Democrats eyeing a group of potential GOP converts to help their costs even as none at least to this point have expressed a willingness to go that route both Schumer and house speaker Nancy Pelosi seizing on every new development to underscore the need for documents and witnesses now hello see reacting to the bold news tweeting quote the president and senator McConnell have run out of excuses saying through correspondent Phil Mattingly it is nine minutes past the hour well it appears that Congress is going to be briefed later this week on president trump's actions in the Middle East let's bring in when the canyon for that Michael senator McConnell says he believes the details and the justification for the attack will become more clear on Wednesday when the administration brief is Congress going out maintained a shred just the threat of national unity for five minutes for five minutes before deepening the partisan trenchers but the trenches have already been deepened says Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer who worries not only about the operation but about how trump when about notifying Congress and the American people the American people need clarity that the trump administration has a plan not just the tweet a plan to keep our troops our nation and our people safe senator McConnell warns this kind of rhetoric is premature could win lose remember we're all Americans first and we're all in this together senator Schumer says we are in this together that's why he says we all should be worried about president trump his policies seem to be characterized by you radic impulsive and often egotistical behavior with little regard to a long term strategy Hawaii democratic senator may see her on says the president's actions will lead to a cascade of consequences rather than de escalating the tensions that are already there I think we've done the opposite with the president's a precipitous action for senator Schumer the issue is clear in my view president trump does not does not have authority to go to war with Iran to that end the house is taking up a resolution this week that firmly states what authority the president does

Polls show Americans remain divided over impeachment
"A slew of pulse that came out in the last twenty four hours A Fox News poll a marist poll. CBS poll they all tell the same story on impeachment. which is that The country is divided but that nearly half the country is in favor of the impeachment and removal from office of Donald Trump. And I am wondering as we now record this little more than forty eight hours before the vote is this pressure even with the knowledge allege that his acquittal in the Senate is short is this pressure of impeachment and that nearly half the countries in favor of it is getting to the president all in your coverage of him. We know our reporting shows that president trump has been frustrated by the fact that he's going to be impeached as much because he's doesn't doesn't want this to be a stain on his legacy ready doesn't want to be associated in the anals of history with the previous presidents who have been impeached and so that weighs on him but he's also really really frustrated and that's why we know that behind the scenes. He's been pushing for the theatrics of a televised trial in the Senate where he could have his handpicked. Witnesses called so so even though Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell's being accused of bias toward the White House. And you and Zach got into this a little bit. He's actually advocating for something that's totally different from. What president trump has has pushed for behind closed doors and that's to have have his metaphorical day in court in the Senate and and he is eager to just get this over with this House vote? It's sort of a foregone conclusion at this point of course with that House vote comes that stain for history That he will be impeached president. The one that you says Gets under his skin Somewhat but to your point about what the president may want in a trial in the Senate. I want you to hear our colleague. John Berman this morning on a new day with Senator Schumer the minority leader the Democratic leader in the Senate. Listen and tell me if you think Schumer might be open. I've been here to some negotiation where some of Donald Trump's hoped for witnesses would be part of the deal perhaps show up as part of a trial. Here's Schumer and our colleague. I'm John Berman. If president trump is so certain that he did nothing wrong. Why is he what is he afraid of? What is he hiding when he says Mulvaney or Bolton or the other two witnesses shouldn't testify he hasn't given a single answer other than to tweet show trial and all this that doesn't answer the fact? If if the testimony from these four individuals is so important to you and if you're confident that Hunter Biden doesn't have any high. Why not make that trade if you WANNA get these four guys in the only way? They're they hunter Biden. Why not make that? I hope they won't. I don't think they should. I think they know that the American people would see that as a total political distraction. You think president trump would take that deal sir. You know the White House so far has been so reluctant to participate at all in the process in the house even though they've been given opportunities by the House Judiciary Committee because they did not want to lend an air of legitimacy to the proceedings by making these witnesses available. That's going to be harder to to do in the Senate when regardless of what happens with the trial White House counsel Pat Sip. Baloney is going to have to participate so once they sort of open that door to having having White House officials appearing before the committee that might change the calculation a little bit because they can no longer avoid having to engage with the impeachment proceedings. That being said. It's hard to see the White House making those senior officials available without a court order And and that could take weeks that could to trump's way of thinking prolong this process. Give his surrogates more time to be on. TV defending him. Give the White House more time to try to turn the tide of public opinion which they're clearly trying trying to do right now and And so this could really drag out the process. If this is going to be litigated in court
DACA recipients anxious over Supreme Court hearing case
"Senator Schumer also had a bit to say Sunday about about six hundred and sixty thousand young immigrants with legal protections here in the U. S. known as dreamers under the Obama era deferred action for childhood arrivals program or Dhaka Dhaka kids all they want to do is be calm Americans they came here when they were little they don't warn you no they didn't cross the border themselves their parents brought them and so many of them are in our armed forces so many of them are going to college and trying to make a good life for themselves talking about him because the Supreme Court is set to hear arguments on the future of the daca recipients on Tuesday and CBS news legal analysts they Rosenbaum says the case really boils down to one question should the decision to end the dreamers act even be something the court can review meeting is it the kind of discretionary action that the government has the right to take ending a government program without courts interfering in its decision be the third time in three years the trump administration's asking the justices to address the policy has been blocked by several lower courts the trump administration's arguing that since president Obama started Dhaka by executive order not through Congress with bill signed into law president trump should be able to in the program without

"Counsel. Twenty-seven hours. You want to ask him more questions. The Justice department says it's not necessary. Meaning that there, there's no reason that, that they should be able to subpoena him. The White House said, don't go. That's the cover up. It's not a cover up the president. He's come out to say soon afterwards. He that oppressor. And he said, well, we'll we'll, we'll cover-ups cover-ups the time all the bills paid this is what happened. No collusion. No obstruction. No, nothing. They issued fifty orders authorizing use of pen registers. Think of that the five hundred witnesses and then I have Nancy Pelosi go out and say that the president of the United States engaged in a cover-up. Now, we've had a house investigation. We have Senate investigation. We have investigations like nobody's ever had before. And there's nothing we did nothing wrong. They would have loved to have said, we colluded. They would've loved it. These people were out. To get us the that there is no doubt, so Nancy Pelosi before going to meet with the president's talk about infrastructure at the White House says he's guilty of a cover up. The president enters the meeting three minutes. He's gone. He's not going to work with them. Goes to the rose garden to have a press conference. To say exactly that. This is madness. When do we actually start working on things? And as he said it, we have two tracks here that we can do that. You probably can't go down two tracks. You can go down v investigation track, and you can go down the investment track, or the track of let's get things done for the American people. I love the American people. Drug prices are coming down first time in fifty one years, because of my administration, but we can get down way, lower working with the Democrats, we can solve the problem of the border in fifteen minutes. If the Democrats would give us a few votes. So I just wanted to let you know that I walked into the room and I told. Senator Schumer speaker Pelosi, I wanna do infrastructure. I want to do it more than you wanna do it. I'd be really good at that. That's what I do. But you know what? You can't do it under these circumstances. So he's done with the press conference. He goes inside then Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer's to the speaker of the house, and the Senate minority leader surrounded by a bunch of other Democrats have themselves a press conference and ANSI Pelosi says, I, I call it a cover up. Now, let's go the emasculation in prayer route, we ranked in the spirit of bipartisanship to find common ground with the president on this, this, he came into the room made it statement that he made was, I won't even characterize it for some reason, maybe it was lack of confidence on his part that he really couldn't come match the greatness of the challenge that we have didn't wasn't really respectful of. Of the congress and the White House working together. He just. Took a pass, and it just makes me wonder why why he did that in any event, I pray for the president of the United States. That's nice me. I'm Tony cats. Tony cats today. Eight three three got Tony eight three three four six eight eight six six nine. We might still hear more from a speaker Pelosi today. I just wanted to get everybody up to speed on some of this insanity. I spoke with Ed Henry, a Fox News correspondent about that. I'll share more of that in a little bit. I wanna take to New York, there is a fascinating story from the New York Post about racism in the schools. This is really just really ugly. Four top department of education executives, demoted or stripped of duties under chancellor, Richard car Carranza. See. A. R. A. N. Z. A. C. A. R A, N Z ridge of Karonga. They've stripped to their duties under his reorganization. They're suing the city. They're suing the city because Richard Caramba is creating an environment which is hostile towards whites. Hold on. Wait a second. I'm sorry. What an environment which is hostile towards whites. The women fill women who have been demoted all white veteran administrators say they were pushed aside, for less qualified persons of color. This has gone up amazing. The decisions made because department of education leadership believes that skin color plays, a role in how to get equity that white, people can't convey the message that according to a source familiar with the complaints now speaker Pelosi take into the podium there on Capitol Hill to talk about the cover up comments and other things with President Trump. Let's take her as we go into Memorial Day weekend, which is such a beautiful time for us to remember respect and honor, we honor the service and sacrifice our heroes in uniform and reaffirm, our sacred duty to never forget that made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. The service ever veterans reminds of our mission to build a future, where they of their sacrifice and reduce so armee oaths, we take to support and defend the constitution and to protect the America. People honoring that oath, this week, the half past nine bills to support veterans protecting their health benefits the national security, and taking actions to end the prices of in suicide. We also passing urgently-needed fix for military families facing tax hikes, under the GOP tax scam with the kiddie tax Republicans took half a billion dollars from working class families and gave it to big corporations, and the wealthy a half a billion the kitty tech, it is unacceptable that five children of our fallen heroes who have suffered so much are now forced to pay thousands of additional dollars in taxes. Well, she's going to go through a laundry list of what she's going to claim as accomplishments in some very well could be. She's not going to get to the good stuff for a little bit. We will take the break. We'll see if Nancy Pelosi is still talking will continue the story in New York people being fired for being white, because they can't deliver the message of education to non white students, this self segregation, doesn't it up in a good spot, and the national popular vote that doesn't end up. Good either. I'm.

"They were unfazed by these investigations. They remained focused on doing the people's business. That's how it's gone on the best. Our current president by contrast is shall we say, phased, and very, very willing to show it. I just wanted to let you know that I walked into the room and I told. Senator Schumer speaker Pelosi, I wanna do infrastructure. I want to do it more than you want to do it. I'd be really good at that. That's what I do. But you know what? You can't do it under these circumstances. So get these phony investigations over with. I'm not going to do even the things I wanna do. Unless you get these phony investigations over with. And you know who knows it is possible that this bizarre spectacle from the president today was all planned out well in advance, right? Maybe it was it was on the secret White House calendar. We don't get to see today, maybe on that calendar today was always going to be Wednesday fake, impromptu rose garden speech, demanding all investigation cease or the American people's roads, and bridges will get it or maybe that was always what they had planned for today in the rose garden, they did have a preprinted sign on the podium today. When the president stood up there to make those comments. I don't know how long it takes them to make those pre-printed signs. That set, there's also reporting today, that suggests that the president was driven absolutely bunkers by Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats telling reporters today that they believe the president is engaged in a cover-up of Muller's findings in the potentially impeachable behavior described in Muller's report. So maybe this wasn't long today. Maybe this really was a spontaneous outburst from the president. Maybe he really was driven mad by this allegation that he's engaged in a cover-up seems weird of all the things Democrats have said he's done, and that he has been described as doing cover up is the one that really stinks him the one that really bugs him for some reason. You like being an agent of a hostile foreign power would be the one that would really stick. But barely doesn't mind that one cover up. No don't cover up or the country gets it. I mean it's so random maybe being accused of carrying out a cover up is the thing that drove imagining this was a spontaneous outburst. I think it is also worth considering whether the holy grail of sort of upon us now. And the thing the president, most cares about his financial history, his banking history. His taxes story, whether that whole financial history and everything that will say about him related to the scandal and not that stuff. Is now getting pride open on multiple fronts. All at once in two different federal courtrooms in the past three days in a state legislature in the state where he has lived since he was born. And we're all his businesses are based at the IRS for the shaky ground. They've been standing on and trying to avoid handing over his taxes that shaky ground is quickly turning into something that seems like quicksand. I mean, other presidents in times of crisis have tried to keep on carrying on in terms of, you know, appearing to have it legislative agenda. And in fact, carrying one out finding common ground moving forward doing the people's work. Looking unfazed? That is not how this one is going to go. Apparently. So what do you do if you have a job in this government, right? What do you do? If you are trying to run congress or part of congress. If you're trying to think about legislation as part of your job is occasionally needing to meet with this guy when he has just declared government over, unless everybody leaves him alone stops investigating him. I mean how do you plan your workday around that? The democratic leader in the United States Senate is Chuck Schumer he was right in the middle of all of this today. He said today that what he saw from the president today, would quote make your jaw drop. Some are Schumer joins us live next. You have the best of intentions.

"Not one penny of inspe- infrastructure improvement will occur in the United States of America, as long as the president of the United States is being investigated. I walked into the room and I told. Senator Schumer speaker Pelosi, I wanna do infrastructure. I want to do it more than you want to do it. I'd be really good at that. That's what I do. But you know what? You can't do it under these circumstances. So get these phony investigations over with. That statement alone by any other president would be an impeachable offense to say I will not perform perform my constitutional duty as long as I'm being investigated would be inundated self an article of impeachment against any other president, but this congress has a Republican Senate which will abide any violation of Donald Trump's oath of office, and has already abided, many of them, and the democratic house is now apparently lost on what impeachable offense actually means they all agree, even the speaker that the president has committed impeachable offenses, but they do not agree that the president should be impeached for impeachable offenses. And they have yet to explain that this is the first time in history that a party in the house representatives has had such a tortured relationship to the issue of impeachment, but the courts are marching on against the president in ways that are possibly almost as devastating as impeachment. The funny thing about the word impeachment compared to the way. Cover is that President Trump has finally found a word that he thinks the president just should not say? All of a sudden, I hear last night, they're going to have a meeting right before this meeting. To talk about the I word the I word. Can you imagine what I could not match is the Donald Trump would find a word that he is afraid to say in public. You know, they say confidential sources given notice they never write the names of people anymore. Everything is a source says there is no source. The person doesn't exist the person's not alive. It's bullshit. Okay. From the start. The only possibility for the for infrastructure has been that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, Donald Trump would build a road to nowhere. Because the Democrats and the Trump party will never agree on infrastructure legislation. Some Democrats would be willing to pay for infrastructure spending with a gasoline tax cuts to defense spending, and Republicans would not agree to pay for infrastructure spending at all periods zero Republicans, would not support infrastructure spending. They would simply support giant tax breaks for companies engaged in very loosely defined infrastructure projects.
