Progress slow as urgency grows on virus relief legislation
"Saw potential step forward in the congressional negotiations for another corona virus relief package after weeks of Resistance Senate. Majority leader Mitch McConnell said he will support an extension of the now lapsed six hundred dollar federal unemployment insurance relief every week that is if president trump backs it. The American people in the end need help. And wherever this thing settled. Between the President United States and his team, it have to sign it into law. And the Democrat. Not Significant minority in the Senate and majority in the House. Is something I'm prepared to support even if I have some problems. With. Certain parts of it. So, Jake Sherman, you cover Mitch McConnell you know him very well that's as close as you'll get to seeing. Mitch. McConnell concede there where he effectively said, okay, I know this bill's been sitting on my desk for three months. I've got some problems with the Democrat bill from the house, but I may be willing to budge on that six hundred dollar weekly payment. The original counteroffer from Republicans as you know had been two hundred dollars a week. So if he concedes on that point, get six, hundred dollars a week of unemployment benefits to people who need it. So desperately right now does that mean we're going to get deal here. Will I think Willie? We're going to get a deal at some point in the next week. It looks not promising, but it looks possible. Here's the catch Mitch McConnell's not a part of these negotiations right now also for the first time in a long time, we could kind of say that Mitch McConnell's view here is a little bit tangential to the overall negotiations. Now Mark Meadows and Steven Mnuchin who have been in the negotiations have offered four hundred dollars a week until December fifteenth, which also by the way is a very big concession for the GOP people. We actually in playbook this morning give a blow by blow full with good chock full of quotes from inside of the negotiating room. During a two and a half hour meeting yesterday in the capital illustrating that there are a lot of issues that remain open to get corona virus for leads to American people just to give a sense about how far we kind of our from virus package, they are bringing in the postmaster general today to talk to the negotiating team about the needs of the US Postal Service because there is such a divide on how much the post office might need to complete its operations. So again, these negotiations are very fraught they're complicated and they're dragging on almost two weeks in I. Think we'll have another week at least before this bill is passing both sides want to get a deal before Friday. Jonathan Does Jake says Mitch McConnell's not involved particularly here. Specifically, neither is the President United States. He's taken a hands off approach to the entire negotiation sending US chief of staff. Mark Meadows and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin into do the negotiating here. How badly does the White House needed deal? Does the president recognized that more than thirty million people just lost that six hundred dollar week check that's allowing them to survive for the last several months urgency from the White House on this. There is really the president in the last twenty, four hours or so has insisted he is playing a role in these negotiations, but we know that is largely not the case that he has need. Deferred it to his chief of staff and Treasury Secretary and Jake don't certainly don't extra job outlining how these negotiations have gone. But yes, there was a keen awareness that this is a president who's facing voters in under three months and that Americans are hurting right now and then beyond just wanting to have a helping hand to those who have suffered so much during this pandemic of course, there's an towards his reelection chances here, and if unemployment numbers can you to go with the economic slowdown, economic recovery slows down that only hurts his chances. They are trying to push here. The they understand that they're in a bad spot have not gone well, the each day that it drags on is a bad day for this president who again is trying. So desperately to pointed idea of a recovery economic recovery as opposed to how he has handled her barracks better said handled the coronavirus pandemic to this point.

Democrats and Republicans remain divided on enhanced unemployment benefits
"In Washington, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin telling Senate Republicans that negotiations are no closer to a Corona virus relief deal than they were last week. He's putting the blame on congressional Democrats Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer. They're leading the talks last Friday. Of course, that's $600 a week federal enhancement to state unemployment benefits it expired. Other Republicans emerging from today's briefing with the Treasury secretary and White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, saying it appears the bipartisan negotiations are now at a stalemate. CBS NEWS Congressional correspondent Nancy Court is with this question to Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell. In a variety of proposals. But at this point what do you believe the consensus Senate Republican view is on how large the federal unemployment insurance benefits should be per week and how long it should last. Well, I think I've made it very clear for some time. Now. If you're looking for total consensus among Republican senators, you're not going to find it, so we do have divisions about what to do. What we're hoping for. Here is a bipartisan proposal negotiated by the president of the stage and his team who can sign a bill into law and Democratic majority in the House that can appeal to a significant percentage of Republicans in the House and Senate. That's where we are on the unemployment issue. We all know it needs to be solved. We don't want the exploration to continue what we've suggested that Short term fixes. Others have indicated they've objected to that a better outcome would be to get to a total solution sooner rather than later. And that's what I am encouraging everyone to do on both sides. Part of the challenge with this negotiation that Negotiators know what the Democratic negotiating position is, but it's unclear what the Republican position is. It's no, that's not a big challenge at all. I'm not anticipating 100 nothing vote in the Senate. This time. I said that in the very beginning, I said it when we laid down our trillion dollar heels. I don't think we're gonna have A total consensus in this round. The atmosphere is much more partisan than it was back in March and April that much closer to the election. So I don't think the definition of success here is whether we have a unanimous vote. I think the definition successes is the product. Something that will actually make a difference. And yet part of the problem is we hear from other Senate Republicans, including Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Rand Paul of Kentucky, saying that they do not support the price tag for the Koven 19 2nd round of relief package is more from today's briefing with reporters, NBC's Casey Hunt and Senator Mitch McConnell. Nancy Pelosi, that House speaker seems to have suggested that $600 per week for federal benefits is for red Line. Do you think a bill with that amount of money for unemployment could pass the Senate if the president were to say he wants that, too? I think I'm pretty safe to say that there are plenty of Republicans in the Senate who may not vote for a package if that's where it ends up, But we know this is going to be a negotiated settlement. I just said it's not going Produce a Kumbaya moment like we had in March or April where everybody voted. Aye, but the American people in the end I need help. And wherever this thing settles between President United States and his team have to sign it into law and the Democrat not insignificant minority in the Senate and majority in the house is something I'm prepared to support even if I have some problems.

Both men were dogged by allegations of sexual affairs and inappropriate behavior, and both denied the allegations they proved disqualifying for Kane who ended his bid in December twenty eleven under intense scrutiny. But they did not derail trump just one election cycle. Later, they were also both savvy exploiters of the media. In saying things they knew would provoke outrage and thus amplify the celebrity at the core of their bids indifference toward if not hostility against what had come before was a cornerstone of their strategy, not a flaw. CAIN was born in Memphis in nineteen forty-five to a domestic worker mother and a janitor father when his dad was hired to be the chauffeur for the head of coca-cola, the family moved to Atlanta where cain would graduate from Morehouse College. He then completed his graduate studies at Purdue University after civilian service in the navy from there Kane moved from engineer to executive with Pillsbury and its subsidiaries of Burger King and Godfather's pizza where he would be its CEO. In nineteen, Eighty Eight, he oversaw Godfather's. From, Pillsbury throughout the same time yelled positions with the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. That part of his resume lead trump to consider cane for a position in his administration a move that drew dissent from fellow Republicans who were not eager to revisit the allegations against Kane for three years. Kane led the national. Restaurant Association a lobbying arm for the industry that paid settlements to at least two women who detailed canes unwanted advances. His was not a typical career in his post. CEO Years Cain became a sought after motivational speaker and unsuccessful presidential candidate in two thousand and a Senate one in two thousand four. As, the tea party movement started to organize after Barack Obama's election to the White House. Kane emerged as one of its strongest spokespeople when the twenty twelve election cycle began kane decided to run the scrappy est of campaigns focused on untrue additional travel schedule that often seemed more like a book tour than an organizing effort. His novel nine, nine nine tax plan proposing a nine percent corporate business flat tax, a nine percent personal income flat tax and a nine percent national sales tax drew I rolls from economists but curiosity from voters. Antipathy toward front runner Mitt Romney proved sufficient to give cain a chance to rise in the late summer and fall of twenty eleven until his personal life just proved too much. But he didn't shrink from podcast life. Instead he became a ubiquitous voice and reliable critic of Democrats
"white house" Discussed on FRONTLINE: Audiocast | PBS
"You've spent a lot of time thinking about the possibility the inevitability really of some kind of pandemic hitting us all what was going through your mind when you saw the news out of Wuhan. Well my My first reaction was that this looked like the option that we feared the most a fast moving respiratory pathogen that we had never seen before that was moderately lethal And then as we began to learn more about its transmissibility I began to realize that this was truly extraordinary threat that we face that Steven Morrison author of a steady that Warren last year of a pandemic like the corona virus spreading to the US. He's talking with frontline correspondent and producer. Martin Smith as you watched the numbers rise number of cases the number of deaths. And you see these. Horrendous scenes of frontline hospital workers giving their lives shortages of how do you feel I feel like everyone else I feel anguished? There will be thousands upon thousands of people in America. Who Will Die Needlessly? They will experience preventable deaths. And there will be thousands of health. Workers whose lives will be imperilled and many of them will become sick and some of them will die because of our lack of preparedness for years. Marty's reporting for frontline has held leaders and government. Finance in the military accountable. Over the past several days he's been talking with leading experts and insiders about early warnings missteps related to the corona virus outbreak. I'm Rini Aaronson. Executive producer frontline and this is the front line dispatch the frontline dispatch is made possible by the Abrahams Foundation. Committed to excellence in journalism and by the WB Catalyst Fund okay. So I'm recording on my end greats. Okay Mardi Great. You could jump on the phone with me. Where am I where am I talking to you from I'm sitting in the catskill mountains. Two hours and change from north of New York City. I mean you're the type of reporter who is known for all the Infield reporting work that you do. You usually go to places regardless of how dangerous they are even. How is it working remotely right now for you you know? I was nervous about it because I'm used to talking to people in a room I walk in. I sit down commerce. We sit down across from one another So there's a in person contact and so I was quite nervous before I began doing these interviews as to what kind of connection I would feel and how they would feel about doing these interviews but you know in the last week. I've spoken with people from China from South Korea from Hong Kong from London from Iran from Italy. And of course the United States so Mardi. I know that You know you've been doing so many interviews lately as you mentioned but the other day one really got your attention Steven Morrison. Why was that you know? Steven Morrison is a global health policy. Expert he is with the Center for Strategic and International Studies. C. S. I. S. Which is a well respected? Nonpartisan think tank in Washington and last year He headed up a project to put together a report And his report on the inevitability of a pandemic striking the planet and the US of course. was quite prescient and Our in our conversation I was struck by the recommendations that he made and how much foresight there was in the report that he finished and published in late November of two thousand nineteen so that gets published. And what kind of response does he get at the time? Well he talks about a pre brief. That took place with administration officials. And he said he was met with silence. I think silence speaks for itself. I think that you know they didn't want to get into an argument where they couldn't very easily win. And so We just sort of cordially agreed to to move on. They just didn't take seriously recommendations that we were making. He told me in hindsight. That's quite alarming. The the cost of Paradis is miniscule compared to the cost that were now facing so immediately. You felt that this is what you fear. The most. I was not alone. I I was not alone. This this was being voiced by many of the experts Who were watching this closely including those at CDC that. I was charged with so so you were pharisaic very worried at this point. Yes I was quite worried and watching very carefully to figure out the true gravity of this and figure out. How quickly were we going to see a test developed? Because the Chinese they made their declaration to whol December thirty first began to share the genetic details data around January tenth developing vaccines developing antivirals and developing tests. So the race was on when Morrison was talking to you about those moments in January when he was starting to see how the administration was handling the corona virus what was going through his head and his colleagues had about what the US government should be doing. Well he thought that somebody should be in charge. Somebody should be taking control of this situation and somebody should be ringing alarm bells. And he just wasn't he wasn't seeing that a at a level of the White House You didn't have a direct route. You didn't have a senior personality with gravitas dedicated to leading on this issue. Who could have pulled the parties together and got in the presence attention? More readily the remarkable problems across our government in the system of government. Structurally in which you had the alarm bells going off. But you did not have concerted action happening with speed and coherence of connecting to the president. In the way that it should. That just wasn't Anybody at home You know it wasn't until late. January that the White House Task Force Was formed to take this on but by this time the virus was was everywhere. I talked to a another official. Who sat down with a bunch of administration officials for dinner and he was raising these questions in January and all they were talking about was the border with China and he was saying. Look guys we gotta do a lot more than closing the border. This is already here. By contrast in South Korea. They had four confirmed cases of Cova. Nineteen and They called an emergency meeting. Gathered all private sector and public sector people together and declared emergency called for massive testing and they had the ability to do that and they had people trained as to how to administer these tests. They had all of that in place. So I know that Morrison identified a really particular moment the disbanding of the pandemic office. Can you talk a bit about that? Yeah in May of twenty eighteen The National Security Advisor in the White House John Bolton decided that he wanted to reorganize the office and how things were run and so he decided to move This office out of a White House disbanded really and dismiss. Its director. Admirals Zimmer. Tim Zimmer He was he was dismissed and other people that were involved in that office were dispersed to other places and it was basically a thought that it would be better to put this kind of capacity in to the health and Human Services Department and that really was in his view and what he says. I mean the first recommendation of the report is that that office needed to be restored and they publish this report last November but of course it wasn't restored. This was a serious mistake and we raised it in the report that we put out any. We raised it in many other fora and the argument that I think was most powerful was to say this is an area of exceptional vulnerability. We live in an era in which we're seeing increasing rapidity and increasing velocity in increasing impacts of these new pathogens Coming at US and the idea that you would disband your capacity willfully at the White House aware of the developments of the last two decades which were convincingly that we needed to be prepared and far better prepared on a consistent and sustained and coherent basis. We were not alone in voicing discontent and alarm at that. Such a step would be taken and the importance of that. Is that when something strikes you need somebody in the White House who had who's close to the President. And who has the ability to coordinate all the different agencies within the government to respond and that just was missing. So you had this sort of you know bifurcated response with the CDC the FDA HHS everybody doing things separately but with nobody charge coordinating the response right so the pandemic offices closed. Its recommended to open. Nothing happens and so then. There is a critical breakdown in communication in early. January that Morrison was pointing out to you. Can you can tell us more about that. Crucial moment in January well in January. The virus is spreading in China. And this information had gotten to the secretary of Health and Human Services Secretary as our And this was around the very beginning of January. He can't get a meeting with the president. Finally he gets an appointment almost three weeks later. And this is the story that Morrison tells the president was not reached by Secretary Czar until January eighteenth so there was quite a long delay secretary as designated lied under the National Biodefense Strategy. On this matter and so he took it up and he began pressing to get into see the president but it wasn't until January. Eighteenth that that he did that and in the end days are never even got a meeting. It was just a phone call. And the president's first concern at that time was to talk about e cigarettes. The president is concerned about vaping and wants to talk about that. The impeachment process was the overwhelming distraction and preoccupation in this period and secretary as I was having hard time conveying the gravity of the situation to the president and when he gets to talking about the corona virus. You know he doesn't really feel.
"white house" Discussed on Article II: Inside Impeachment
"Join me for wise's happening new episodes every Tuesday. Wherever you get your podcasts Let's talk about where things go from here. The articles of Impeachment Democrats McRae are are introducing here two articles of impeachment to charges abuse of power obstruction of Congress. We did not see the White House. Play a formal role in these committee. Hearings brings they were offered one the declined it. Will there be a specific White House defense on these two charges. The Senate is where they are expecting vaccine to really be able to lay out their case part of that is just by the very nature of how the Senate trial works and we don't have all the procedures details details on what's going to happen on. The Senate side laid out yet. But as we've seen in past impeachments the president's lawyers will have an opportunity to stand in front of the Senate and make their very clear concise case like it works in a criminal trial. That's where we should see. A more clear case from. The White House is coming to shape. You're getting into some interesting territory here too because there. Is this question out there about. If this zooming does get to the Senate the Senate has to have a trial. Republicans Publican's of course control the Senate Mitch McConnell the Senate Majority Leader on the one hand. Here he is the leader of the Republican Party in the Senate on the other hand he sort of has control troll of the entire Senate the entire chamber the entire institution. How is he balancing those two? Those two roles right. I mean obviously is not a supporter of of impeachment and has a very strong supporter of the president. He has not been as big a defender of the president's. S Some members of the Senate Lindsey Graham for example. Paul and. I'm told that part of that is that he has to do a bit of a balancing act here where the way that the impeachment is designed for the Senate. The senators are supposed to be the jurors. Now I've been told by people who talked to his office and and other senators involved in this process that you know they feel the house process looked very partisan and they would like it although it's a difficult to fully imagine this being possible but they would like it to sort of look like a non-partisan process in the Senate or at least not have it looked like quote unquote Oh kangaroo court show trial to of course then give some legitimacy to the outcome which presumably will be the president being acquitted so in order for that that to really look like the acquittal was done in a serious thoughtful process McConnell and other senators are trying to stay out of the the the daily fray of impeachment this is a obviously a noteworthy week in Washington to put it mildly. Not just because this is the week the Democrats Put to put forward the articles of impeachment. They're going to bring against the president but also because on the same day that Democrats did that there was arguably the biggest bipartisan artisan legislative breakthrough that there has been for the entire trump presidency basically three years now this on the US MCA the United States. Mexico Canada trade agreement sort of of an update of the NAFTA agreement from generation ago. The timing of that is so fascinating to folks because this gives at least potentially trump's something legislatively to brag about. What's going on there? That was maybe one of the biggest whiplash moments of the past three years. There's been so many but that that that was quite remarkable to see her with an hour of each other announce articles of impeachment. And then come out and say oh by the way you remember that guy. We were impeaching. Well we just reached a deal with him but for trump it does give him a really strong talking point. This was one of the main campaign promises he made. Unlike those politicians all additions I keep my promises. Trump advisor feel like this is one of their strongest arguments. Is that unlike every other politician in the history the world trump actually did what he said he was going to do. He didn't get into office and do what the lobbyist of the special interest told him to do. He stuck to what he said he was going to do. And he got it done and they have a whole motto. Promises made promises kept so it is a very big win for him and he doesn't have that many other than the tax bill. I'd say this is the second most significant legislative achievement. He has at that rally last night to the president. Also making the claim that hey this whole impeachment thing. It's only only making me stronger. Poll numbers have gone through the roof. Because stupid when you look at the polls on this it's it's much more complicated picture. Then he's painting. We've we've certainly seen before but I I. It's not clear to me. I have to say looking at the polls that either side is benefiting right now i. I wonder when you when you talk to people kind of behind the scenes on both sides of this do they each feel like yeah. The politics of this are going to work for us are they. Both apprehensive is one more confident than the other. What you pick up on when they're when they're sort of not being quoted for the record? Well I mean I will say I talk a lot. More to Republicans than people on trump than Democrats. But I certainly was just having a conversation with the the democratic strategists today who was touting some poll numbers they had in battleground states and then yesterday of course I was talking to someone on the trump side who who is touting their numbers in battleground states so everybody seems to have their own version of reality. Whether it's idee reported the Miller report or poll numbers everybody. Everybody seems to have their own version that fits their narrative but when I talked to those involved with the campaign about what are you looking for in the poll numbers. They have a sense that everybody's basically chosen their sides so there is a sense that this election like twenty sixteen is GonNa come down to the margins. It's GONNA come down to turn out it's GONNA to come down to mobilizing certain groups D mobilizing other groups. It's going to have a lot to do with who their opponent is. I think there's a general level of optimism in trump world. But they do feel like it will come down to a few thousand votes in Florida that we won't know how it's going to go until the night before before the election. It's a fascinating possibility that I guess kind of fits in with this polarized era. We're always talking about the possibility you could have. In impeachment of a President United States and he emerges politically not strengthened or weakened. Just just sort of the same after actually going through impeachment and then it comes down as you say to another election here we are again Tena Petty Senior White House reporter for NBC News.

"white house" Discussed on Article II: Inside Impeachment
"Shannon petty pieces of senior White House this reporter for NBC News Shannon. Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me so we have been talking for weeks now really months now about the impeachment of Donald Trump. Let's look closer at trump trump himself. His White House how he is handling all of this. He was in Hershey Pennsylvania last night chocolate capital of the world but I think when it comes to politics obviously Pennsylvania critical state in two thousand twenty one. That trump narrowly won in two thousand. Sixteen it's one. He's going to need to win again if he's GonNa get re-elected so on the same day that Democrats credits are formalizing these articles of impeachment against him trump is talking to a rally in Pennsylvania. What's he saying to them? He gave a pretty full throated. Defense of himself ALF. As well as ripping everyone involved in this process he at these rallies kind of goes through an area stark enemies list from Adam shifts like like shifty shifty. Here's a corrupt politician to Nancy. Pelosi is totally lost control to the whistle blower the whistle so blower defrauded our country because he throws one enemy after another at the audience and it is a bit of red the meat to the base but of course it's also a way for him to sort of get some things off his chest and you went on for about five minutes at this rally last night and I think that's maybe a little bit more. Then we get from him focused on peach men and it was really the only time we heard from the president yesterday and so he certainly did take that moment to give his full throated rebuttal rebuttal to what the Democrats had laid out you know. I wonder if there's a strategy behind holding a rally like this on a night like last night. Is there a strategic. TJ element here where trump in the White House WanNa put him in an arena of ten thousand members of the Republican base. Who are just cheering along shouting along? Long enjoying everything he saying about this sort of delivering a message to Republican elected officials. Have Hey remember the base is behind me. You don't WanNa Cross them exactly well in the early days of this impeachment inquiry when I talked to his advisers. What are you thinking? Are you nervous. Could this be end. They said well watch what happens to Republican Republican support. Even as numbers came out showing about half of Americans were supportive of this impeachment inquiry once they saw that Republicans support holding up. They said Ed does okay. I think we're GONNA be all right. There's not going to be a mutiny in Congress in the Senate because those Republicans will see if they want to avoid a primary. They're going to have to stick sick behind this president and I think he's continuing to do that in these rallies like you said are great example to reaffirm that he can fill a twenty thousand person stadiums in major cities including major democratic cities like Minneapolis for example where he was about a month or two ago. So that's definitely a side benefit of these things. It's interesting resting to to watch trump right now handling all of this because we have a president who was in his shoes in the same shoes basically at this exact time twenty one years ago. It was this same week. In December nineteen ninety eight at the House of Representatives was poised to impeach. Bill Clinton Clinton had a different way of handling it in public talk a little bit about comparisons between what Clinton was doing and and what effect it was having versus what trump's doing now get. It was a completely different way. I've talked to a number of people who are involved in that period with Clinton and who came up behind that strategy and they said really key to it was keeping Clinton out of impeachment Peach Mint as much as it might have bothered him personally. Behind the scenes in public he appeared to be president who was working hard on behalf of the the American people that was the image that they tried really hard to put in front that he couldn't be distracted by impeachment. He had real things to deal with. He had the economy and jobs and all the other foreign policy issues that come with being president and impeachment was just a a silly little thing that was being done by the Republicans now of course he did address his accusations and his impeachment at very key specific moments but on a daily basis he sought to stay out of the the fray and look presidential and Republicans and Democrats credit that strategy with helping Clinton get through the process where his approval approval rating went up to sixty percent seventy percent at one point. He left office as one of the most popular presidents they give that credit to the strategy. Strategy and Lindsey Graham was even one of those to give credit to this I think one of the reasons that he survived is that the public may not have liked what the president had done but believed that he was still able to do his job and as he governed during impeachment. I think that was probably the single best thing. He did. Quite frankly to to avoid and it also helps it backfire on the publicans because it made it look like the Republicans. Were not focused on the issues. That matter to people and were carrying on with you know what they tried to portray as just silliness inside the beltway behavior. One of the other other contrast to between Clinton and trump is what was going on behind the scenes is Clinton had sort of for lack of a better term a war council around him and impeachment appeasement war-council trump is really the single soul shaper of strategy for this White House. Trump actually said to us I forget which reporters specifically typically asked but it was one of those days when he's heading off to the helicopter and someone asked him. Are you going to build a war room or are you know. Are you going to be adding staff to help with impeachment. And he said I the an the team that I don't have teams everyone's talking about I'm the team. I did nothing wrong. Of course that fits in with this bigger theme. We've seen of his presidency. Let's see where he is his own communication director. He is his own. You know chief of Staff is own. Political Adviser doesn't think he needs a big staff around him but yeah Clinton learn how to very formal war room. They had a lawyer inside the White House who was solely focused on and peach men who acted as the quarterback who reviewed you'd messaging and talking points that went out of the surrogates and the circuits Clinton had were very few. It was James Carville and Lanny Davis for the most part and those two were able to have a very coordinated sharp message backed up by the facts backed up by the lawyers but it was organized denies and strategize and focused. And we've seen something much different in the trump White House I've seen some reporting here potentially interesting common link between Clinton and trump and that is somebody that trump apparently met with a couple of weeks ago who was instrumental in advising Clinton in ninety eight ninety nine. who was that what can you? What can you tell us about that? Mark Penn former Clinton adviser came into the White House to talk about this strategy that Clinton used and the trump White House is well aware of what what Clinton did how their strategy played out. They have received this advice of keep focused on being presidential. Don't look like you're distracted and pulled down by impeachment impeachment but like so much of the advice. People have given trump throughout his presidency whether it's his national security advisers or his allies in Congress he just I has a way of doing it his way and making his own call at the end of the day about how he's going to do it and he seems to be carried through with that she in an Alaska to stay put for week. Second where we take this break back in just a minute. Hey It's 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 broader. Look at the issues. That's what I'm doing each week. My podcast why is this happening. Were exploring topics ranging from school segregation to climate change. Well the way that I think it is climate change to the twentieth century. What maternity was to 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 in deep with guests uniquely qualified to analyze issues from mass incarceration to race relations as you know for the first time in our history at the national level whites are on the verge of losing their majority status in twenty years. And I think it's no coincidence that our politics park getting more tribal..
"white house" Discussed on Start Here
"This is a week. Where in theory members of Congress are off out of Washington for the Thanksgiving holiday to meet with constituents? Do what you WanNa do in reality though. This is the week where the House Intelligence Committee is going over everything they heard in the course of seven different hearings in the last couple of weeks encountered an irregular informal channels share baseless allegations with the president. My intent was to raised concerns because they had significant national security implications for our country. I've been hurt. President trump. Ask so he's going to do the investigation. Mr Giuliani's requests were a quid. Pro Pro quo for arranging a White House visit for presidents Alinsky assuming that the end of those hearings the next step would be to write a report and adopted the House Judiciary Committee and and see if that committee draws up articles of impeachment the House would vote on that Senate decides whether or not the president but with every day that passes beyond those hearings. We're learning that's not necessarily summarily. All there is to this story because the People Congress have heard from are not the only people they wanted to hear from and last night a judge issued a ruling that could have profound profound implications. Not Just for how these impeachment hearings go but for the trump administration overall. ABC Supreme Court contributor. Kate show with us. And so I mean can you just explain what this ruling was and why. It's a big deal. Sure Brad so this actually stems back. To the Muller reports Don mcgann former White House counsel was actually a really significant player in the Muller report specifically typically involving some of these obstruction of justice episodes began told the special counsels team under oath at the president repeatedly asked him to fire Robert Mueller mcgann said he refused even threatening threatening to resign so congress has been wanting to talk to mcgann directly since way before these impeachment proceedings were underway. This committee will hear Mr mcgann's testimony even that if we have to go to court to secure it this laws that has been in the works since last spring and now we have a ruling that says the administration has made basically frivolous legal arguments. Them again again doesn't even have to show up to answer questions in Congress I and in fact he's required to answer congressional subpoenas. He may be able to avoid answering specific questions but he can't just not show up. Yeah well that's the Mueller investigation like you said but I remember last week Kate. We were talking about John. Bolton the former national security adviser how much Congress wanted to hear from him in that they subpoenaed him but he was like no sorry. I actually have to wait for a court ruling to know if I'm allowed to comply with does this mean more people have to testify now. I think this ruling could definitely have implications locations beyond just Don mcgann so basically the White House has been making the argument with respect to mcgann with respect to Bolton with respect to Mick Mulvaney that these advisers enjoy something called absolute immunity. That Congress can't even require them to show up to answer questions and then maybe fight about whether things are protected by executive privilege. No the White House has said they don't even have to respond to subpoenas Pena's and this decision is a powerful rebuke of that legal argument. A federal judge telling the White House. The constitution never envisioned a president having the power our quote kneecap house investigations by demanding. His staffers ignore congressional. Screeners to judge is saying this is basically fiction this argument that you can ignore waffle subpoena subpoenas not an invitation or suggestion. You have to show up you know this is just one district court. I think they're almost the DOJ says that's not the end right you. You can appeal all this you certainly can. But it's also the case that if these former White House officials are a little bit hesitant about what they're what they think their legal obligations are they you could point to this ruling as basically an authorization for them to show up an answer questions in Congress you know if anyone is looking for cover in order show up to testify. I think this opinion very much gives them that. We actually heard Bolton's been going over this with his lawyer overnight and Kate. This was not the only legal decision the White House had to deal with last night right the. US Supreme Court is now looking at the president's taxes. I mean that sounds very separate. Is this related at all to what we were just talking about. You know I think. These cases are conceptually linked although the topics are different so there are actually two cases involving requests for the president's taxes. One from the Manhattan. Da One actually from a congressional committee but the White House is is making the argument that because the president is involved basically the normal rules don't apply and maybe the law doesn't even apply and that is basically the argument that they were making with respect to these advisers and their testimony and that this district court opinion really strikes down at the Supreme Court actually issued a stay on giving up those tax returns. Meaning they don't have to do it right now. And if the White House was looking for a signal that the Supreme Court might be sympathetic to the president that might have been pretty decent signal for them still a lot of judges right now saying the president's way more constrained in the White House is admitted in recent history. Kate Shaw thanks so much. Thank you Brad. And as we talk about impeachment remember. There's another central character that keeps popping up again and again and he's coming under closer and closer scrutiny. Rudy Giuliani the president's personal lawyer. The president's lawyer went on on Fox News to say he's not worried his client might expect him to take the fall for Ukraine saying things written. Why he's going to throw me under the bus right when they say that? I say he isn't but I have insurance but Giuliani now says in a tweet. He's being sarcastic. And while Congressional Democrats ponder their next steps while the White House fights it's battles while the White House Turkey Start Angling for their pardons. Let's get you up to speed here. ABC's Johnson Touchy is sourced up and down Pennsylvania Avenue and Jonathan. There could be new evidence in this whole debacle Well like you Brad. I was hoping is to focus on Turkey pardons but like usual. Washington is other plans for our weeks. You know I do think that as we start to see things if you will quiet down. Publicly as members of Congress are away. That doesn't mean. The work of the Committees has necessarily stopped. We've actually learned within the last couple of days. The House Intelligence Committee came into possession of documents records videos images and photographs. From one of Giuliani's lianis associates love partners Farnesina Gor. Fruman stood before the judge here in pleaded not guilty to campaign finance charges. One of the two that were indicted up in the southern district of New York case that is still ongoing. What's interesting there Brad is that that is the first person as a released Giuliani to actively cooperate with with this congressional inquiry? Now our sources tell us that it's a lot of stuff it's a Lotta video recordings it's images there's documents some are in English Submarine Marin Ukrainian. We don't know the exact substance that is so obviously it could be something huge. It can be something not so huge but the fact of the matter is that it is still jill cooperation ever the less that they are going through right now house intelligence chairman Adam Schiff announced. Today he will release a report. Shortly after Thanksgiving revealing ailing quote a fact pattern that is overwhelming unchallenged and damning. And so that's what. I'm trying to figure out John. I mean we've had these congressional investigations but we've also had the criminal investigations by federal authorities or those guys finding stuff that would influence congress in theory and if so does Congress need to slow its role. Well your your question is interesting. But then the other piece of your question is do Congress and the federal investigators in New York have to play Nice with each other and the answer to that is not really right. The feds are going about their investigation slowly methodically. We saw overnight. The Wall Street Journal reported. ABC is confirmed that the prosecuting nineteen in the southern district. New York has actually been issuing more and more subpoenas To the Guiliani orbit they asked for documents records etc etc and the details details according to the Journal. Is that indie subpoenas. They were looking for information about money. Laundering fraud campaign finance violations. I mean the list goes on and on and on the takeaway is that they are casting a wide wide net but John I just have to ask a really basic question. All the stuff about Giuliani's associates and pleading eating not guilty to campaign finance violations. I mean even if Giuliani himself got indicted. What does that have to do with President trump and whether he exploited another country to look into Joe Biden? Like what does that have to do with anything because they took the same road together. Brad because you have. The president is State's asking Ukraine go after Joe Biden while the road that he took required vehicle to get there and in the driver's seat of that vehicle was Rudy Giuliani. And these two guys partisan firm and were in the backseat. Rudy is a great crimefighter corruption fighter. I take your point that they're not exactly the same stars if you will because the president is obviously the focus of the impeachment. c'mon pro because he's the one that could be impeached and Rudy is the star of the Southern District Investigation which is still growing but the fact of matter is that they had to go on the same path together for what they were doing. And if there is something damning if you will in these documents records videos recordings etc etc that Congress has that could be something that would be focused. More for Giuliani stuff but it could have been actions condoned by the president. We don't know yet. Another nugget reported overnight.

"Don't forget that. At least one of these characters Kamala Harris is running for president the last thing she will ever do as part of that bid as seed to any Trump nominee for the supreme court. There's also a danger here that the White House is going to submit the nominees who aren't as qualified by the principles of the president has has stated the nominees that were non of these three nominees. We talked about we're vetted under the White House process in the last two years. They have strong pedigrees both in terms of legal experience and beliefs in the principles of original interpretation of the constitution. And it is true that in the past the White House, white houses have consulted, home state Democrats. If it's a Republican president or vice versa. If Democrats in the White House to say, all right? We're going to nominate this person. What do you think? And you know, you could see some kind of deference it's usually done at the district court level less at the appellate level because those nominations have become polarized ideologically as well. But these Democrats what have they done Kate? I guess would be my question to earn this kind of concessionary negotiation with President Trump. I mean, have they voted for any Trump nominee who who was at all controversial now nave done nothing to that. Goodwill. And like like, you said there's no guarantee air even probability that they show it at any later point. When it really matters. I'm skeptical that that really looking for a deal at all given the conditions..

"Yeah. From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac watch Goshi actions begin post to government shutdown for a some kind of border security immigration deal that could could help prevent block another shutdown. We'll tell you about the early innings. They're welcome. I'm Paul zhigo. And I'm here with the Kim strassel and Kate batchelder Odell. So the we had a little scoop in the paper here on these negotiations that have been taking place behind the scenes in which the White House counsel's office is negotiating with of all people Kamala Harris, and especially Dianne Feinstein to California senators over a pellet nominees. Now, what triggered this is that when the White House submitted remember last year late last year Jeff flake, the Republican from Arizona than at the time. No. Senator objected to judicial nominees being voted on in the Senate because they had a narrow margin Republicans couldn't confirm any nominee. So the White House now has renominated fifty judicial nominees. I think that's the figure Kate isn't it fifty and if t one and and three names conspicuously missing these are three nominees from California. Ed been nominated last year for the night circuit court of appeals Patrick Bouma. Tei Dan Collins in Ken Lee, now two other nominees for the night, circuit were renominated one from Washington state one from Arizona, why the Californians not Ron renominated enquiring minds want to know. And it turns out that this is because the White House has been Goshi eight into try to come to some consensus with these. Democratic senators to try to get at least less opposition to this these nominees and the future by giving them a stake in who can be who the president will nominate up front Kate. And I have to say the strikes me as an awful idea. But please please expand. Well, Paul so Diane Feinstein and Kamala Harris have been going back and forth with the White House counsels office on this issue for several months, including public letters asking that the White House counsel office would negotiate with them. And they're opening offer has basically been we will accept one person from your list, and then we want one person from our own list, and then some third candidate that everyone can agree upon. But there hasn't been much movement on this front, and it's easy to see why. And that's because Feinstein and Harris are unlikely to sign off on anybody on the White House list, the three nominees you mentioned are all well-qualified candidates that Harrison Feinstein have just a wholesale opposed. And they don't seem willing to accept any of those three as a part of an trade. Well, you know, my information is that. In fact, the White House is considering this pets baloney. The new White House council has been considering this with a goal of. Quake seriously. This isn't just some rumor or fly by night exercise. This is a serious consideration in the White House designed to to try to maybe kind of slow down. I mean, reduce the degree of opposition from democratic senators to Republican nominees, and in particular, if the White House gets a chance to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg later this year because of the justices health, and I'm not saying they will she's has given no intentions of wanting to step down. Although she she did have a very serious operation late last year. The the they're hoping that maybe this would get avoid kind of red cavenaugh meltdown. Kim my own view is good luck with that. Hope. I think Mr. zip baloney oughta be made to sit down and rewatch those Brad Kavanagh hearings. So that he can get a better sense of just how in the mood Democrats are to tolerate or accept any Trump nominee to the supreme court. This is wishful thinking, and it's very bad strategy because not only will it not aid them in that goal. But the president and the White House come across here looking very weak. They look almost as if they are rewarding the behavior of MS Harris, miss Feinstein, who were among the top people who did the drive-by mugging of Brett Cavanaugh and subjected him to such a horrible process and the idea that they come out of that. And then are rewarded and as by giving a veto over the president's ninth, circuit nominees is just mind boggling in a certain way. Well, not in a certain way, and every way so. It's it's a stonning and look to remember since we're talking about future supreme court nominees and people's motivations..

"Good even more while the ones about Muller and the screaming contest. What's it based on? I thought the weirdest one this week was when he said the people in Florida, they vote then they go back to the car, and they changed their shirt and are hat, and then they go back and vote. You know, I'm reading that one. You know, I'm reading. To by box of cereal where I only need an idea when I buy a box of wine, but here's to set the record, right? You're still Carter now. Full disclosure, president has come out and said all this talk about him being in a foul mood. He says that's fake news. So everything's good things refine the administration's going well, the palace intrigue is overblown. But I really do you really do have to think when you look at how the last month has been he has been out doing rallies in front of his adoring fans, which that would be fun to do. He enjoyed that those were done. The Muller investigation is coming home to roost, and these factors in addition to not do not having a great midterm that has to be bothering him that has to be playing on this mind. And I as much as he likes to say everything's quiet on the home front. These factors have to play play at all. If he is angry what's going to change. What's going to turn it around? What's going to get him back of the house? Democrats. Just listen to all this. And I gotta say other than media claiming that he's angry. I don't see evidence that he's angry me. Right news sources right here in the sources. Set me on gone off China. I never get angry. Okay. Good. White House or telling not just telling men reporter that he is. Here's here's here's what I'm saying. What I'm seeing that? There were number things. We're not talking about that very successful this week. For example, a rarity nowadays in Washington. He did something together with the Democrats and by partisan way that doesn't often happen. These days successful in prison reform other positive things. Simply. Give me great things. And and you know, the the media prefers to talk about this other narrative, it's fine. But the truth is, I think he's doing great. I think that the midterm elections. We picked up in the Senate, which is highly unusual. It's really rarity in the last century the losses in the midterm were much less than anticipated much less than a me, generally happen, royals, all you want. But that's the truth. It's not much of the Clinton gotten their first term. And so the truth is here's lots of happy for and is he is brash tough guy. He show Inskeep. But that doesn't necessarily mean these angry. Can we just for the record? Okay. It looks like forty seats in the house, though, more seats and Democrats picked up since Watergate the Republican margin. Donald Trump said the day after there's always going to be fifty five it looks like they're going to be fifty one or fifty two in the Senate Democrats picked up seven governorships seven state legislative houses, three hundred seventy two state legislates legislative seats. Chef it was a blue way. Interesting compared his pickup to a two other pickups. Let's compare it to Obama's and Clinton what their losses right Clinton evolves. Sixty three. Imperative is just I just say totally gumming sense common sense would tell you when you see it flip. It's not a good day. And that's the way it is. It's a Blue Wave. It's a bad day. Is it the worst day? No, he kept the majority in the Senate. But don't try to tell me it was a good day. I didn't say this was a red wave. I'm just saying. About their together. This panel and the best quote of the week. From do when he doesn't like the outcome of an election. He talks about voter fraud voter fraud that if you look at the evidence there is no evidence up with this quote. I've had friends talk about when people get in line. They absolutely have no right to vote. Then they go around in circles. Sometimes I go to their car. They put it on a different hat. They put on different shirt, they come in and vote again, you who are these friends are telling him about these frontier radio conspiracy theory of people putting on its bizarre.

"And then I just say it like as of this moment, here's what we know this could change, but you know things in this White House. Things are true until they aren't true. How much is that? How different is that from the last administration? Oh, it's night and day. I mean, I remember during the Obama administration, you would get a. Sense of how the week was going to play out on a Sunday. They would get well, not the whole schedule, but you'd get a good road map. Yeah, they would use the Sunday shows to message. You know what they wanted to talk about that week where the agenda was headed, and I'm there was some White House staffers in the Obama administration who would apologize for last minute changes to the schedule. I'm very sorry to have to do. Yeah, exactly. And that's just not the way in granted every White House takes on sort of the personality of the president. And so we know the president enjoys chaos. And so this White House in just the way to operate is chaotic and that it becomes. Staffers don't. Oh, for sure. I don't. I think that they have learned to live in it. Do they ever tell you off the record or indicate or show any emotion that would indicate that they aren't happy? Are deflated are tired? Our weary that they, I don't. I don't get that feeling a lot. I get the feeling that they feel like they're entrenched warfare, and I feel like they really believe that the president has accomplished a lot on behalf of the people who voted for him. Okay. You know, they can live with tax cuts. They like that. They like the relocation of the embassy to Jerusalem oughta folks like the two economy's doing well, yeah, a lot of people do, but a lot of people are also going to be hurt by that. So you know what he hasn't delivered is this wall that he largely, you know, ran on and whatnot. So I think that those staffers feel as they reflect the president's grievance that the press has not given him enough credit and that's energizing for them. I think. And you know what's different about that versus other administrations, because every White House has staffers that feel beat down just by the car. It's different though in having talked to people who worked for George W Bush in president, former President Obama is that those two men, I think, engendered loyalty and inspired. There's Daf in a way that Donald Trump does not. So whereas I feel like a lot of the people in the current White House are driven to a certain degree like by the kind of grievance you talk about and by some of the president's policies, I don't necessarily at least in my conversations, get the sense that they are driven to do their best work on behalf of the man in who sits knee Oval Office in the same way that people who worked for President Bush no vomited will part of point. This is part of a strategy that right, like he is someone from his reality TV days in real estate days. He likes to have competing factions and interests. Yeah, working for him. And so like if you're doing that, you're actually aren't trying to inspire loyalty your. Trying to inspire competitiveness and that dick like another source in question. Like when you get leaks from sources, are you saying to yourself? Well, how is this faction of the White House trying to attack this other faction like the humor sent questioned sourcing, how do you work through that?.

"Believe after the confirmation of break Cavanaugh, the supreme court nominee, but now the president is Katie mentions in real time is confirming. Reporting, so like, okay, this is one example of how different out of the ordinary. This administration is usually when a departure you hear buzz about it. I and it's confirmed. And then there's like an official statement. This was just a tweet, and this happens a lot. A lot of times what happens is the president will say something, he'll tweet something. And so what happens is you have the White House staff trying to make the reality on the ground reflect mayor has said or tweeted about, and then sometimes you'll catch Sarah Sanders out there doing the world's hardest job trying to keep up with the show. And so for instance, with this issue, this Mcgann forthcoming resignation this morning, Sarah said, when we have an announcement will let you know suggesting that they were working through the process of coming up with an announcement. Sure. There was a plan to get in front of this, but yet the president, it appears cut it all off. Well, personnel stuff. He, he keeps things really close to his chest a lot to he knows that stuff leaks. And with the marchers or hires or appointments, you often have little visibility into it because he understands like to your point about knowing where the cameras are. I mean, the man is like the foremost meat, like media scholar, generation of anybody's done. I mean. He knows how the big reveal works. He knows that in like he's hone that skill over three, four decades. He knows how to kick start a new cycle. He knows how to barrel. Fourth, when things are not looking good, like the McCain flag thing feels like that happened in April. You know, he Cohen and metaphor fill, right? You happen to twelve and I think we like just don't really. I don't know what the most interesting thing about covering this president is going to rallies. I've covered morale. Remember in watching him work through a message and the start. I remember him doing this with the NFL stuff to where he would attack the players for the for the silent protests and he would he would say align and if it didn't get the right kind of applause, he would. He would switch up Cindy. Say it again and let it land always said he was like comic trying out new before the comedy special? Yeah, like the comic that goes to the dingy comedy club on Monday night and just tries aligns out and he fancies himself that he's not a politician, but he, he's discourse. You audition. And like all good politicians. He knows exactly where his base is exactly what motivates them. And that's one of the reasons why he says what he does about immigration about the NFL he is, you know, he's trying to position himself as a as a nationalistic culture warrior. Yeah, and hasn't really moved beyond the skills if you want to call them that that made him successful as a candidate because his supporters haven't required anything other from heckling. Exactly. So just thinking about this news today with Mcgann and talking about how a lot of times Trump staffers are trying to keep up with Trump, how does that affect sourcing? Like is it harder to talk? I wanna know what's what? Knowing that things are changing. Things are true until they aren't, and it took me a while to be able to figure out how to say that on television..

"Katie Rogers, White House correspondent from New York Times. Thanks for being here. Oh, you're welcome. Jeff Bennett. White House correspondent for NBC news. Thank you for being here. It's a privilege. Fun fact. I worked with you both before and gosh, our paths diverged. But we're all living our best law. Yeah. So I was worried for the last two weeks about this conversation because I said, well, they cover the White House. And something happens. They gotta go. And then I was like, would I be able to do that thing? Or you know, when you're at dinner and someone's like, all right, everyone iphones on the table face down the first person to pick it up, pays for dinner. It was like, what's the radio of that? Well, for me, this is my day off. Oh. So I have to leave, which is why this data Katie is on full duty right now. I'll let you I had to take a few calls in the lobby on the way on the way up. You know, my phone rings, I might have to put us on speaker phone with with somebody source for that. But luckily just shout out to Michael shear, my colleague who's babysitting right now. Thanks, Michael. Yeah, in my absence. Yeah. How long have you both been covering the White House now? I've only been covering it since January. What? Yeah. Crazy crazy. So less than a year? Yeah, less than a year. I've been covering the White House for a few years. So I covered the end of the Obama administration for New York one, which is a well-known stationing dark line. And then when I came to NPR, was I a producer, but then a reporter I covered the White House for NPR for a few months and then jump. He's literally literally for a few months and then jumped to NBC news and I've been at NBC for eight months. Okay. Wow. So then my next question for you. Both is you've been covering the Trump administration, Jeff, since the start Katie for a few months in your time covering the Trump White House, what is the wacky craziest report. Story you guys can tell me without getting in trouble the story that you tell your friends at bars when they ask how crazy the job is. Oh. I had a story a couple of weeks ago that sort of illustrated to me how involve the president is in coverage about him, which is not unusual presidents care about how the media covers them, but I was on the Europe. Did you go on the uptrend? So I was on the Europe trip in. I got a heads up from a source at the White House who just had this Email that showed that he got on the plane at some point during the Helsinki Trump and freaked out because the first lady's TV was tuned to CNN and Lang threw a fit and now in got the military office involved like to make standard operating procedure, Fox News on all the TV's going forward. I mean, pause you real quick. You're saying Donald Trump was so mad that his wife was watching a network other than FOX that he changed the protocol. Yes. What I'm not clear on whether she was sitting in her area watching it was tuned to it was on and he flipped his lid. And I came in possession of a string of emails saying, oh, that story. Yeah, I just standard operating procedure going forward in the hotel suites, and that was actually confirmation at they sleep in different rooms to like first lady. Sweet sweet. I guess the wildest in the press cabin on Air Force One. It's all you can watch his Fox News..
"white house" Discussed on CNN's The Daily DC
"Hey, everyone welcome back to the daily DC. I'm David challen CNN political director. I'm joined in studio this week by my colleague Jeff Zony he's CNN's senior White House correspondent Jeff. I you heard me say as we were talking the first half of the podcast that I thought that the security clearance issue of revoking John Brennan security clearance and putting a list of other people who are now on morning that their security clearance may be revoked. I thought it was a pure distraction from the Manafort trial headlines that clearly the White House is not all that happy about, obviously from what we were talking about about Marissa's book in her charges, but that didn't make the sort of assault on first amendment rights to be critical and speak your mind if a president, any less chilling, it's still there while it may have been a tactic. There was a a subset of ramification here of what so many national security professionals have said, could be dangerous, chilling effect. On lower level folks who don't feel the need, feel comfortable speaking out against a president's policy decision? No question. And I think it absolutely was an attempt to change the subject. This is something that the president didn't suddenly decide this week, and we know that because of a bit of ham-handedness inside the White House, the statement from the president that White House press secretary. Sarah Sanders read to us in the briefing room and then released a printed copy later happened to be dated July twenty sixth, which is three days after they initially a raised the specter. This possibility three weeks ago didn't rand Paul voting this, oh, down to the White House or at least talk to the president. I believe by telephone at the time and said, you know, you should revoke these security clearances. So that letter was written three days later on July twenty six. It was announced this week, and then the president sort of complicates things even more by telling the Wall Street Journal in an interview that he was thinking about doing this last week, but he was too busy in Bedminster. Well, he played golf multiple times. The clearly had time and it was through this. I think that was the word perhaps internally it was. I mean, I would actually believe that, but I think the reality here is that what happened? If you take stock of what has happened by the end of this week by doing this, this is something that I think is. I mean, we've not seen before so many former national security officials, intelligence directors, Republican administrations, democratic ones have come out now by the end of this week in opposition to what this president did. So the list of critics who have very high credentials in high credibility is much longer now at the end of this week simply by doing this..

"She's an amazing, incredible blanket statement to to make about the the, the reporting on on what's what's going on in his administration and what the policies that his administration has enacted are doing right, but, but that's no surprise. You know, I mean, the the, the media, bashing is catnip for him and his those are prize, but it's crazy. Well, yeah, but I mean, he's been doing it since the beginning. It's. It has produced tremendous dividends to him. I mean, it's a, it's a stock part of every rally. It's every appearance. He makes his part of his brand. And I mean, it's it's political gold for him. I mean, he spends political gold. Every time he hits the media. There is no constituency that vote. I mean, nobody wins votes by embracing the media. Nobody not at all, but you can win a lot of votes by beating the heck out of the media. And he is realized that and he's tapped into a lot of animosity towards the media and he will continue to do it, and it will be a huge theme in Israel action campaigns. Well, it's not just even the media though I feel like by him saying, don't believe what you're hearing or seeing is also a knock against, you know, the intelligence community that is saying there's inter. There was Russian interference in the election, which he has sort of disagreed with like it's just sort of undermining the media intelligence community agencies like anyone who sort of publicly disagreed with him. And I think it's really laying the groundwork so that when much more serious political things happen, like the results of the Mueller investigation, for instance. You know, he is in a position to have so undermined those institutions, including the media that you know, bunch of people including his basement, believe whatever comes out, you know, I was also struck listening to interviews with farmers. Other people who'd been hurt by the trade tariffs saying, you know these people who had supported Trump in the first place saying, yeah, you know, I've lost some money. I'm hard shape, but I trust them, you know, I think this is gonna work out and it sort of gets at the same thing. Like trust me, I'm the one who's gonna take care of this for you don't believe all this other stuff. So it goes deeper than the media. In some ways it feels like, so Jason, how? How are you as as you report on the media in in Washington and elsewhere? What what are, what are you seeing happening in response to this? I think we're seeing some behavior behavioral changes in the way the the media react to the barriers that the White House and others are erecting in their way. Not not just in terms of, you know, the the relentless news cycle, I mean, and and the kind of relented. Reporting on it, but it like some tactical things like very, very kind of nitty gritty things. And just in terms of trying to find out information. Yeah, it does seem like journalists are banning together a little bit. I think it got a lot of attention. It was last week or the week before its time is sort of a plunder. Now, I don't even know where where Jordan, Fabian from the hill in a press briefing at the White House when how Jackson was trying to finish a question and Sarah Sanders was cutting her off Jordan's Senate back to her bay said, you know, finish this question. That was something a lot of people noticed as sort of a sign of like, okay, you know, the White House press corps is in this together, whether that's like a one time thing or going to be more of a trend, we'll see, but certainly saw a lot after Caitlyn Collins from CNN after she was not allowed into the event at the rose garden yesterday, you saw a lot of reporters speaking out in support of her Fox News reporters as well. So it does seem like at least for now, Nancy can probably speak to this better than I can that there's some sense of pulled together Charlie when you talk about the. The the political upside for for Trump of doing this do do you mean upside in terms of broader appeal? Or are you just talking about Trump's seemingly constant efforts to make sure that that core of his base however much it is stays tight?.

"To influence partisan elections the white house reaction today to the offices special counsel's eleven page report detailing and proving that kellyanne conway violated the law was simply to say we don't believe it this is the second time a white house employee has been found in violation of the haczek the first was dance gabino the white house director of social media the office of special council is not empowered to discipline white house staffers who violate the hatch act that discipline is left to the president and of course president trump has no discipline himself and imposes no discipline on anyone else working in the chaos white house the trump white house has staffers who break the law and get caught in nothing happens to them it has a communications director who co wrote hugely complimentary white house statements about her boyfriend after her boyfriend was exposed as having been accused of domestic violence by both of his previous wives it has a chief of staff who bombastically an angrily lied about a black woman member of congress got caught in those lies and refused to apologise for those lies and after lying about cars when frederic wilson john kelly actually went so far as to say he had nothing to apologize for and no member of the white house staff has ever been caught publicly lying more wildly more recklessly then john kelly did in that case but it's the trump white house and working in the trump white house means never having to say you're sorry not for lying not for lying about a woman not for lying about a black woman member of congress and so from from the top down from donald trump through john kelly and his predecessor runs priebus and sean spicer and steve bannon the director of social media all the way down two kellyanne conway who has no known function in the white house the whole team participates in and contributes to lying and chaos every single day because donald trump attacks and hires the very worst people for those jobs.

"No either exactly the nature of of uh jerk kushner's business dealings or the nature of how parliament or of how bob muller's looking into those business dealings or is this just bannon doing punditry in the way that any of us might sort of guessing about what situated thinks and i think it's mostly the ladder had he knows a little bit more than the rest of us having been on the inside but i think this is the statement about kushner frosty nope might be true but i think it's mostly born of hatred he just hates the guy with the burning passion and was waging a war against him in the white house and that's where these quotes came from gesturing where do you think i think that's basically right i mean it's hard to convey on on on the page in a book put bannon uh when he talks when he gets worked up he kind of whips himself into this mania in what you have from him as a kind of a wish casting him asserting what he thinks is going to happen or what he wants to happen and it can sometimes be difficult when you're reading a transcript uh to to understand that he isn't saying this based on something he knows but rather something that he wants to be true he thinks is likely true uh i do think he's he's he's right about that by the way that is that is that his assumption that this is this is this is the path muller's gonna take is probably the correct one and one of the things that make ban and so interesting unquotable uh is that if you just look at a lot of what he says objectively you know he's right um me decent i was i was going to urgently on and say i was going to go on and say you know about his comments on jared kushner nevada that maybe maybe i should go in that trash honor i should say like yeah he's a decent punted and but that may be really what he's best at i think one of the things that this book and this ruckus eh eh illustrates is that the time period that were we've been talking a bannon is actually incredibly small and most of his life bannon has had a um let's see an uneven career i think josh would agree and he hasn't had like the kind of soaring.
