SO THEY WEREN’T ABLE TO PERFORM BUT WELL CONSIDER THIS MIKE BETTER TO GET A LITTLE BIT OF RAIN THEN YOU KNOW WE HAD A STORY LAST WEEK WHILE YOU WERE GONE THERE WERE PLACES. IT NOT SO MUCH THE MIDWEST BUT THE UPPER NORTH OF THE COUNTRY LIKE MONTANA. WHEN THEY WERE GETTING TWO TO THREE FEET OF SNOW HIM AT SOME POINT ALL. RIGHT YEAH. ALL RIGHTY OUT SO IT WE GOT A LOT OF. NEWS TO TALK TO. REALLY TODAY AND- THAT THE CONTINUES TO TALK. ABOUT TRUMP. IMPEACHMENT YES CONTINUES TO BE REALLY THE BIGGEST TOPIC RIGHT NOW. IN WASHINGTON DC IT’S REALLY I THINK. KIND OF IT. IS TO FIND WORK FOR THIS DAY I KNOW THAT. DANNY DEMOCRATS WERE FEELIN. YOU KNOW CORNERS OF THE REPORTING I AND SEE KIND OF FEELING THE PRESSURE FROM THE BASE. LET’S GET MOVING ON IMPEACHMENT OF DONALD TRUMP AT THE- KIND OF THE I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S THE UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCE BUT IT’S GOING TO SUCK UP ALL THE AIR IN THE ROOM. ALL BY THE WAY DID YOU KNOW THEY’RE STILL LIKE FIFTEEN DEMOCRATS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT. YOU KNOW I. JUST CAN’T GET THOSE HEADLINES OUT YOU CAN’T CUT THROUGH THE CLUTTER. BECAUSE THERE’S JUST SO MUCH TALK. ABOUT THE FUTURE OF THE PRESENT I MEAN IT’S HISTORIC. WE HAVE ONLY GONE DOWN THE IMPEACHMENT ROAD IN OUR NATION A VERY VERY FEW TIMES. AND I MEAN IT LITERALLY GOES BACK TO THE DAYS RIGHT AFTER THE CIVIL WAR WAS THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENED WITH ANDREW JOHNSON. WHO YOU KNOW FACED A REAL UNCERTAIN FUTURE. IN THE DAYS AFTER ABRAHAM LINCOLN. HAD BEEN ASSASSINATED THEN YOU FAST FORWARD TO MORE OF OUR CURRENT TIMES AND YOU HAD BILL CLINTON NINETEEN AND NOW OF COURSE IT WAS RICHARD NIXON BUT HE RESIGNED BEFORE THEY COULD EVER& REALLY TAKE ANY ACTION. BUT THERE IS YOU’VE SEEN SOME OF THE COVERAGE OVER THE LAST WEAKER SO BY WHEN I SAY YOU I DON’T MEAN MIKE HE’S BEEN ON VACATION. YOU KNOW HE’S BEEN A LITTLE THE GREAT CHICAGO. ITALIAN RESTAURANTS BUT ANYWAY FOR EVERYBODY WHO HAS BEEN WATCHING. THE COVERAGE HAS BEEN IT SEEMS LIKE ALMOST NONSTOP IT’S ALMOST LIKEA GUARANTEE EVERY DAY YOU CAN TURN ON. THE TV TO THE NATIONAL SHOWS THIS WHAT THEY’RE GONNA BE TALKING ABOUT. BUT THE NUMBER THAT JUST CAME OUT THIS MORNING AND THIS NEW WASHINGTON POST POLL. SHOWS THAT FIFTY EIGHT PERCENT. OF AMERICANS. NOW ARE IN FAVOR OF AT LEAST BEGINNING THE IMPEACHMENT. INQUIRY LET’S SEE WERE AT LEAST NOW. I KNOW YOU’RE SHOWING THE E. U. AMBASSADOR. THERE’S JIM JORDAN AS WELL IT’S KIND OF INTERESTING BECAUSE THERE’S ANOTHER LEGAL SHOWDOWN SETTING UP TODAY BETWEEN THE WHITE HOUSE. AND THE HOUSE OVER WHETHER OR NOT THE BAND THAT YOU HAD BEEN SHOWING RIGHT THERE ON THE LEFT. WHO HAD SOME TEXT MESSAGES REGARDING UKRAINE HAND SHOULD HE BE CALLED TO TESTIFY IN THE PRESIDENT SAID NO. WE’RE GONNA ISSUE. YOU KNOW IS TO EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE BASICALLY. AND SO HE DIDN’T TESTIFY THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW HOUSE DEMOCRATS SUBPOENAED. HIM SO WHERE DOES THAT GO WE’LL FIND OUT. 58% OF PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY FEEL WE SHOULD HAVE. THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY. COMPARE THAT TO. 37% IN A POLL. SO IT’S SO FASCINATING THAT WE AS A NATION SPENT SO MUCH TIME AND SO MUCH MONEY. INVESTIGATING THE ALLEGATIONS OF RUSSIA COLLUSION. THE BALL OR REPORT IN THE LITERALLY THE THOUSANDS OF HOURS INVESTIGATIVE WORK THAT WERE DONE AND IT JUST NEVER CAUGHT FIRE PEOPLE JUST THEY JUST DIDN’T DIDN’T BUY IT AND DIDN’T THINK THERE WAS ENOUGH THERE TO MOVE FORWARD. AND SO THAT NUMBER WAS LOW BOY HAS IT CHANGED MIKE IN JUST A FEW MONTHS TIME YOU GO FROM APRIL THIS SPRING THIRTY SEVEN PER SORT SENT NOW WERE IT 58% OF PEOPLE WHO DO AT LEAST SUPPORT THE IN KOREA ARE NOT SAYING PRESIDENT NEEDS TO BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE BUT THAT’S PRETTY GOOD SAYS NUMBER IT REALLY IS IN A LOT OF PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW OKAY BUT WILL THE DEMOCRATS. GET TO A BOLD DOUBT WILL THERE BE A VOTE ON THE HOUSE FLOOR. AND FEDERAL REMAINS RIGHT NOW WE DO HAVE TO BE ON SCENE IT DOES REMAIN TO BE AND SEE THAT I JUST I MEAN IT’S IT PLAYS SO WELL WITH THE BASE AND THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE THAT ARE. REALLY OUTRAGED ABOUT THE DETAILS OF THE PHONE CALLS THAT CAME ON THE MIKE THE BIG STORY YESTERDAY WAS THAT THERE WAS A QUOTE SECOND WHISTLED WHEN IT CAME FORWARD THEN THERE WERE SOME QUESTIONS RAISE BECAUSE YOU DON’T SEE ANY TALK ABOUT THE SECOND WHISTLEBLOWER TODAY AT ALL YEAH RIGHT THERE WERE SOME QUESTIONS RAISED WAS THIS BECAUSE THE FIRST WHISTLE BLOWERS SAID HE DIDN’T HAVE DIRECT FIRST HAND KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT HAD BEEN SAID. SURE IT WAS WHAT SOMEBODY HAD TOLD HIM YEAH THERE WAS LIKE THE TELEPHONE GAME SO THEN THE QUESTION LATER IN THE DAY BECAME WELL IS. THE SECOND WHISTLE BLOWER. REALLY THE FIRST GUY. WHO TOLD THE SECOND WAS SO YEAH. SO IT’S KIND OF A- YOU KNOW. DOWN THE LINE TYPE OF A THING SO THAT PART’S STILL UNCLEAR. IT IS POSSIBLE OBVIOUSLY. SO THAT PART OF THE STORY IS. KIND OF FIZZLED HERE OVER THE LAST DAY OR SO. BUT ALL IN ALL. THE NUMBER OF AMERICANS. WHO FELT THAT IT WAS INAPPROPRIATE. FOR THE PRESIDENT TO ASK OF THE UKRAINIAN LEADER. TO INVESTIGATE JOE BIDEN AND HIS SON HUNTER. THAT WAS ABOUT SIXTY PERCENT. SO OVER 30% SAID THEY FELT IT WAS. APPROPRIATE SO BY THE WAY AS PART OF THE SURVEY THE FINAL OR NOT ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTIONS THAT WAS ASKED SO SHOULD BE ACTUALLY BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE THAT NUMBER IS YET TO HIT FIFTY PERCENT. BUT THIS IS THE CLOSEST I’VE SEEN IT IN A POOR YET MIKE 49% IN. SO JUST KEEP ONE THING IN MY REMEMBER WHEN BILL CLINTON FACED OF THE DETAILS HERE A GENERATION AGO. THE VAST MAJORITY OF AMERICANS WERE KINDA WITH HIM IN THE POLLING. ALL ALONG THE WAY IF YOU WERE TO SEE THIS NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO FEEL HE SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE GET UP INTO THAT TWO THIRDS RANGE BECAUSE IT BILL COHEN AT ABOUT TWO THIRDS SUPPORT IN. IF THE PRESIDENT IF THERE WERE TWO THIRDS OF THE PEOPLE ABOUT THE PRESIDENT SHOULD. BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE THAT BEEN WOULD REALLY PUT THE PRESSURE ON A SENATE REPUBLIC SURE SURE LONG WAY TO GO BETWEEN HERE AND THERE YEAH REALLY AS BUT YOU GOT TO WONDER TO WORK WITH THIS. IS THIS GOING TO PLAY INTO TRUMP’S CORNER THOUGH AND DO YOU SEE ALREADY WITH THE FUND RAISING I MEAN IT SEEMS LIKE RIGHT A FUND RAISING WAS GOING THROUGH THE ROOF YEAH WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A HUNDRED AND TWENTY FIVE MILLION DOLLARS A LAST QUARTER. AND AT THAT POINT. BROKE A BOMB I WAS ONLY ABOUT SEVENTY FIVE MILLION DOLLARS ARE UP YEAH AND I THINK I SAW THE NUMBER MIKE DO THIS UP THE TOP OF MY HEAD BUT I THINK WAS PRETTY CLOSE TO TWENTY FIVE MILLION DOLLARS RAISE THE VERY FIRST DAY. AFTER THE IMPEACHMENT WAS ANNOUNCED ALL BUT DANCEABLE EASY MEMORIES EMAILS YEAH ON THE REPUBLICANS YEAH YEAH COURSE IS GOING TO BE USED BY BOTH SIDES TO THEIR BASES SURE. YOU KNOW AS A AS A BIG FUNDRAISER. BUT IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S GONNA PULL HOBBLING. TO FADE INTO TWENTY TWENTY AND IT’LL JUST BE ONE MORE ISSUE. THE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO KIND OF MALL AROUND IN THEIR MIND AS WE GET CLOSER. DECIDING WHO WILL BE PRESIDENT TWENTY TWO AND A HALF. NUMBER YOU KNOW ALL RIGHT WE GOT THIS OTHER STORE THAT WANT TO BRING TO YOUR ATTENTION EVERYBODY. WHEN THE PRESIDENT TRUMP TWEETS GETS A LOT OF NEWS.

IT WAS A NEWS BRIEFING ON THE LATEST NOW BORDER CROSSINGS THAT ARE HAPPENING ILLEGALLY AND THE CRACKDOWNTHE ADMINISTRATION CONTINUES. TO TRY TO DO ON SPRING IS HERE RIGHT HERE ON NEWS NOW. THE ROLE OF A STEADY DECLINE IN APPREHENSIONS. THIS IS AN ON PRESIDENT IT. ACHIEVEMENT LAST MONTH IT WAS A DOCKED ANOTHER DECLINED 18% FROM AUGUST TO SEPTEMBER. AND THIS MARKED THE FOURTH CONSECUTIVE MONTH THAT THE UNITED STATES BORDER PATROL LOAN. AVERAGE 25% LOWER AND THE LAST FOUR MONTHS. AND WHY HAVE WE ACHIEVED THE SIGNIFICANT RESULTS. MAKE NO MISTAKE AS WELL PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS WORKED TO HELP OTHER COUNTRIES IN THE REGION SLIDE MEXICO AND THE NORTHERN TRIANGLE COUNTRIES TO JOIN US AS TRUE PARTNERS TO COME TOGETHER TO ADDRESS THIS AS A REGIONAL CRISIS. THAT IT IS AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT IS HAPPENING. INITIATIVES IMPLEMENTED UNDER THIS ADMINISTRATION LIKE THE MEN MICRO PROTECTION FOR A CALL ARE IN P. P. WHICH WAS ESTABLISHED IN A COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION TWO THIRTY FIVE. OF THE IMMIGRATION AND NATIONALITY ACT HAVE BROUGHT ABOUT THEDOWNWARD TREND IN BORDER ENFORCEMENT STATISTICS AND STRENGTH AND INTEGRITY OF THE IMMIGRATION SYSTEM. AND CLOSE PARTNERSHIP WITH THE GOVERNMENT MEXICO IN PP ALLOWS FOR MIGRANTS ILLEGALLY CROSSING OUR AT THE PO HE’S WITHOUT DOCUMENTS TO BE RETURNED TO MEXICO. TO AWAIT EXPEDITED IMMIGRATION PROCEEDINGS IN THE UNITED STATES. IF THEY HAVE MERITORIOUS CLAIMS THEY WERE SLICK WITH THE RECEIVER LEAVE AND JUST A FEW MONTHS RATHER THAN WAIT IN LIMBO IN THE UNITED STATES. SOMETIMES FOR YEARS AND THAT THEY UPON SUCCESSFUL CLAIMS THEIR SWIFTLY RETURNED. TO THEIR HOME COUNTRY OR THEY CAN RETURN VOLUNTARILY. THROUGH A PARTNERSHIP WITH MEXICO CITY PIAS AND ROLLED MORE THAN FIFTY ONE THOUSAND PEOPLE AN MPP. AND MEXICO AGAIN BEING TRUE PARTNERS HAS AGREED TO PROVIDE HUMANITARIAN PROTECTIONS AND EVEN WORK AUTHORIZATIONS TO THESE INDIVIDUALS FOR THE DURATION OF THEIR STAY. WITH MPP MIGRANTS ALL RIGHT RECEIVING DUE PROCESS AND PROTECTION WHILE THE UNITED STATES IN RESTORING INTEGRITY TO OUR IMMIGRATION SYSTEM. WERE CLOSING THE LOOPHOLES AND DIMINISHING THE SMUGGLING ORGANIZATIONS ABILITY TO PROFIT ON THE BACK OF THESE MIGRANTS WAS SIMULTANEOUSLY EXPORTING OUR SYSTEM. THROUGH THIS AND OTHER INITIATIVES CDP’S CONTINUE TO COLLABORATE WITH OUR FOREIGN PARTNERS PARTICULARLY MEXICO EL SALVADOR GUATEMALA AND HONDURAS TO ADDRESS THIS. AS A REGIONAL CRISIS AS I SAID SPECIFICALLY TARGETING GANGS HUMAN HUMAN SMUGGLING ORGANIZATIONS AND THE MOVEMENT OF ILLICIT DRUGS. AND WHILE THE NORTHERN TRAVEL COUNTRIES ARE STEPPING UP TO ADDRESS THE REGIONAL CRISIS EXPANDING THEIR SILENT CAPABILITIES AN EX BUT I AND THE RETURN OF CITIZENS WHO DO NOT QUALIFY FOR ASYLUM IN THE UNITED STATES. MEXICO’S EFFORTS ARE LEADING THE WAY. MEXICO’S CONTINUED SUPPORT OF MPP AN ENHANCED PORT SECURITY EFFORTS ALONG THEIR SOUTHERN BORDER IN THE INTERIOR AND ALONG THE US MEXICO BORDER IS SOMETHING REALLY FOR THE HISTORY BOOKS. THE PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN MEXICO AND THE UNITED STATES CONCERNING THIS. REGIONAL CRISIS IS HAVING A DRAMATIC IMPACT. THE MINISTRATION WE CONTINUE TO ACT A NETWORK OF POLICIES AND REGULATIONS AND INITIATIVES ALL WITHIN THE CURRENT LEGAL FRAMEWORK UNFORTUNATELY AS WE DISCUSSED BEFORE JUDICIAL ACTIVISM BY LOWER COURTS CONTINUOUSLY AND JOINS THESE ATTEMPTS TO ADDRESS THE CRISIS. THE SILENCE I A FOR EXAMPLE THE REQUIRES MIGRANTS IN THE UNITED STATES ALONG THE SOUTHWEST BORDER TO SEEK ASYLUM IN A THIRD COUNTRY IS GOVERNED BY CURRENT LAW. IT WAS IN JOINED BY A LOWER COURT AND IT TOOK THE SUPREME COURT JUST RECENTLY TO OVERRULE THAT LOWER COURT. I’M HERE TO TELL YOU TODAY WE. ARE INSTITUTING THAT ASYLUM I’LL FOR THIS WEEK. FLOORS REGULATION IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE WHICH ALLOWS TEACHERS TO ENFORCE IMMIGRATION. LAWS PASSED BY CONGRESS TO DETAIN FAMILIES WITH DIGNITY AND RESPECT DURING THE DURATION OF IMMIGRATION PROCEEDINGS IT’S ACTUALLY PART OF THE FLOOR SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT THE LAW. BUT WHAT HAPPENED WHEN WE TRIED TO INTRODUCE THAT REGULATION IT WAS ALSO STOP. SO DESPITE THESE OBSTACLES AND CONGRESSES AN ACTION THE ADMINISTRATION EFFORTS THERE WORKING WELL GIVEN EXAMPLE JUST FOUR SHORT. MONTHS AGO OUR DAILY APPREHENSIONS WERE CLOSE TO FIVE THOUSAND AND TODAY I JUST LOOKED AT ALL MY SCREEN BEFORE LEFT MY OFFICE IT’S BELOW SEVENTEEN HUNDRED. WE WENT FROM OVER NINETEEN THOUSAND PEOPLE IN CUSTODY JUST FOUR SHORT MONTHS AGO TO LESS THAN FOUR THOUSAND. WE HAVE HIS SENSUALLY ENDED CATCH AND RELEASE IF YOU COME TO OUR BORDERS NOW WITH THE CHILD IT’S NO LONGER AN IMMEDIATE PASSPORT INCIDENTS HERE IN THE UNITED STATES INSTEAD THEY WILL BE PORTED AND LAWFUL AN EXPEDITED PROCESS. BUT THEY WILL NOT BE RELEASED INTO THE UTERINE I STATES NEVER TO BE HEARD FROM AGAIN. WHILE THIS DEMONSTRATES AN INCREDIBLE EFFORT ESPECIALLY BY THE MEN AND WOMEN CDP THERE’S MORE TO DO. SEVENTEEN HUNDRED DAILY APPREHENSIONS AS I MENTION IS STILL UNACCEPTABLE. THE FORMER SECRETARY OF DHS JAY JOHNSON HE’S BEEN SAID A SEVERAL TIMES THAT WHEN HE WAS SECRETARY A BAD DAY WAS A THOUSAND APPREHENSIONS. I AGREE WITH HIM ONE HUNDRED PERCENT. AND LET’S KEEP IN MIND ALTHOUGH WE APPREHENDED ALMOST A THOUSAND ALMOST A MILLION USING A MILLION INDIVIDUALS THIS YEAR OF FISCAL YEAR NINETEEN. WE ESTIMATE AND THIS IS A CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE THAT THERE’S PROBABLY AROUND A HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND INDIVIDUALS WHO LOOTED APPREHENSION. THAT’S NEARLY THIRTEEN THOUSAND. EACH MONTH. THE BOTTOM LINE WE STILL NEED CONGRESS TO PASS MEANINGFUL LEGISLATION TO ADDRESS ARE BROKEN LEGAL FRAMEWORK WHEN IT COMES TO IMMIGRATION. AND WHAT CONGRESS HAS FAILED TO BRING A SINGLE PIECE OF MEANINGFUL LEGISLATION TO THE FLOOR THIS PRESIDENT THIS ADMINISTRATION IS DOING EXACTLY WHAT HE PROMISED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. BELLAMY MOVE ON TO SOMETHING ELSE THE WALL. HAVING SERVED AS CHIEF OF THE BORDER PATROL IN TWO THOUSAND SIXTEEN I PROUDLY. SUPPORT THE NEED AND IMPORTANCE OF THE WALL. SEE THE P. WITH THE HELP OF THE UNITED STATES ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS IS CONTINUE TO PRIDE PROVIDE THE MEN AND WOMEN OF C. B. P. WHAT THEY HAVE ASK FOR. TO DO THE JOB OF PROTECTING THIS GREAT NATION ON THE FRONT LINES. TODAY A TOTAL OF SEVENTY ONE MILES OF NEW WALL HAS ALREADY BEEN CONSTRUCTED AND IT’S NOT JUST A WALL TO WALL SYSTEM INTEGRATING LIGHTING TECHNOLOGY AN ACCESS ROADS. THIS WALL SYSTEM IS ESSENTIAL TO OUR NATION BORDER SECURITY BY REPLACING OUTDATED AND DILAPIDATED DESIGNS AND CONSTRUCTION AT A MUCH NEEDED PHYSICAL BARRIER AND STRATEGIC LOCATIONS. AS REQUESTED BY THE LEADERS IN THE FIELD. THIS IS WHAT THE PRESIDENT ASKED FOR THIS IS WHAT THE EXPERTS ASK FOR. TO HELP THEM DO THEIR JOB TO SAFEGUARD AND PROTECT THIS GREAT NATION THE PRESIDENT IS SIMPLY LISTENS TO THEM AND HE’S DELIVERING HIS PROMISE. BY THE END OF TWENTY TWENTY C. B. P. EXPECT TO HAVE APPROXIMATELY FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTY MILES OF NEW BORDER WALL SYSTEM CONSTRUCTED. AND I’VE SAID BEFORE AND I’LL SAY IT AGAIN WALLS WORK OUR AGENTS KNOW WHAT AND THE DATA SHOWS IT. EVERYWHERE WE HAVE INSTALLED BORDERS ALONG THE SOUTHWEST BORDER AGENTS GETTING MORE OPERATIONAL CONTROL ILLEGAL DRUG IN HUMAN SMUGGLING ACTIVITY DECLINES. PAGES SAFETY IMPROVED AND BORDER COMMUNITIES ARE SAFER AND MORE SECURE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BORDER. AND. THE WALL JUST DOESN’T BENEFIT BORDER COMMUNITIES. BY THE WAY THE ILLUSTRATION. IN A FIVE DAY ENFORCEMENT ACTION THE ENDED LAST WEDNESDAY UNITED STATES IMMIGRATION AND CUSTOMS ENFORCEMENT ARRESTED NINETY SEVEN ILLEGAL ALIENS. IN SIX MID WEST STATES THAT’S IMPORTANT INCLUDING THOSE WITH PRIOR CRIMINAL HISTORIES CONVICTION FOR SERIOUS CRIME ASSAULT OF BATTERY CHILD EXPLOITATION SEXUAL ASSAULT DRUG POSSESSION HIT AND RUN AND WEAPONS OFFENSES. AND AGAIN THIS WAS IN SIX STATES IN THE MIDWEST THIS UNDERSCORES A REALITY THAT SOME OF THE ILLEGAL ALIENS WHO CROSS AT THE SOUTHWEST BORDER MAKE THEIR WAY INTO THE NATION’S INTERIOR. AND COMMIT SERIOUS CRIMES. IF WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A RATIONAL AN INTELLECTUALLY AN HONEST DEBATE OVER THIS ISSUE WE MUST ACKNOWLEDGE THE PUBLIC SAFETY ISSUES IMPOSED BY SOME. NOT ALL BUT SOME ILLEGAL ALIENS THE WALL SERVES TO IMPEDE AND INCREASE OUR ABILITY TO APPREHEND CRIMINAL ILLEGAL ALIENS BEFORE THEY MAKE IT INTO THE INTERIOR. THAT IT STATES THAT IS THE TRUTH. THE WALL ALSO INCREASES OUR ABILITY TO STEM THE FLOW OF ILLICIT NARCOTICS INDOOR COUNTRY LAST YEAR WE LOST SIXTY EIGHT THOUSAND PEOPLE TO DRUG OVERDOSES THE YEAR BEFORE THAT WE LOST SEVENTY THOUSAND PEOPLE DUE TO DRUG OVERDOSES. AND LAST YEAR CD PC’S MORE THAN NINE HUNDRED AND TEN THOUSAND KILOGRAMS A LIST OF NARCOTICS NINE HUNDRED AND TEN THOUSAND AS AN EXAMPLE THE MAJORITY OF HER ONE FOR A COMES FROM OUR SOUTHWEST BORDER. MAKE HIS WAY TO YOUR TOWN YOUR CITY AND YOUR STATE. SO THIS FURTHER ILLUSTRATES WHAT GOES ON AT THE BORDER IMPACT EVERY COMMUNITY AND THE WALL GIVE C. B. P. THE OPPORTUNITY MORE EFFECTIVELY DETECT AND PREVENT DRUGS FROM INNER IN OUR COUNTRY. AND KILLING OUR CITIZENS THAT’S WHY I ALWAYS SAY EVERY TOWN EVERY CITY EVERY STATE IS A BORDER TOWN BORDER CITY A BORDER STATE. NOW LET ME CLOSE BY POINTING OUT AND A COUPLE OTHER ADDITIONAL COMPLIMENTS THAT CDP AGENTS AND OFFICERS. EVERY DAY THEY ANSWER THE CALL PUTTING THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE TO PROTECT THIS NATION. AND THIS THIS IS IN A TAGLINE OVER THIRTY YEARS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT EXPERIENCE THIS AGENCY IS SOMETHING AND THEY DO SOMETHING THAT THAT I’VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE. IN FISCAL YEAR TWO THUSAND AND NINETEEN UNITED STATES BORDER PATROL AGENTS RESCUED MORE THAN FOUR THOUSAND NINE HUNDRED PEOPLE ALONG THE SOUTHWEST BORDER. LET THAT SOAK IN A MINUTE THE RESCUE FOUR THOUSAND NINE HUNDRED INDIVIDUALS ALONG THE SOUTHWEST BORDER IN THE MIDST OF THIS CRISIS OUR AGENTS RENDERED EIGHT AND IN MANY CASES PUT THEMSELVES IN HARM’S WAY. TO RESCUE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHOSE LIVES OR WILL BE IN AT RISK. WHEN AGENCY MIGRANT FAMILY STRUGGLING IN RIVER. THEY’VE ANSWERED THE CALL WHEN THEY LOCATE PEOPLE DYING OF THIRST IN THE DESERT. THEY ANSWERED THE CALL. WHEN OUR AGENTS AND OFFICERS SEE SOMEBODY NEEDS. THEY DON’T ASK THEM QUESTIONS ABOUT THEIR CITIZENSHIP OR THE MIGRATION STATUS THEY SEE A HUMAN BEING IN NEED AND THEY ANSWER THE CALL. AND THEY’VE DONE SO FOUR THOUSAND NINE HUNDRED TIMES THIS YEAR. THESE INCREDIBLE STORES PLAY OUT JUST ABOUT EVERY DAY ALONG THE BORDER AND THEY DESERVE OUR ATTENTION. THESE STORIES. AND THE STORIES THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DESERVE TO KNOW THROUGH THE NEWS MEDIA. I THINK THAT WE HAVE TIME FOR A FEW QUESTIONS THANK YOU. YES MA’AM. MY COLLEAGUES IN MEXICO SAY THEY’RE TALKING TO MIGRANTS DOCTORS SHELTER DIRECTORS WHO SAY M. P. P. IN ESSENCE THE US GOVERNMENT IS CREATING VIOLENCE IN DANGEROUS SITUATIONS THAT THEY ARE TRYING TO ESCAPE FROM THEIR HOME COUNTRIES WHAT IS YOUR RESPONSE TO THAT AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ADDRESS THIS VIOLENCE THE SEOUL FROM MEXICO WAS DOING A VERY SIMILAR ACTIVITIES THAT THAT WE ARE DOING HERE SO HERE OUR SYSTEM WAS OVERWHELMED I THINK EVERYBODY UNDERSTANDS OUT AGAIN BACK IN MAY HUNDRED FORTY FOUR THOUSAND. WE RELIED ON NGOS AND FAITH BASED ORGANIZATIONS THAT’S ONE EXAMPLE THAT THE GOVERNMENT OF MEXICO IS DOING THE SAME SIMILAR PROCESS WE DID SO THEY’RE THEY’RE RELYING ON NGOS AND FAITH BASED ORGANIZATIONS TO HELP THEM WITH THE INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE GOING OVER THERE INCLUDED IN PP IN ADDITION TO THAT THE U. N. IS THERE ACTIVELY IN THE NORTHERN BORDER MEXICO HELPING THEM ADDRESS AND DEAL WITH THE INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE ENROLLED IN IN PP THE INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR MIGRATION FOR EXAMPLE IS ACTUALLY THERE ASSISTING BOOK THROUGH THE U. N. AND ASSISTING GOVERNMENT OF MEXICO THEY’RE ACTUALLY PROVIDING FREE SERVICE FOR PEOPLE THAT ARE IN. A HOLDING IN PP TO ACTUALLY RETURN TO THEIR HOME COUNTRY IF THEY FEEL UNSAFE OR THEY’RE JUST GETTING TIRED TO WAIT BECAUSE THE MAJORITY OF THEM KNOW THEIR ECONOMIC MIGRANTS AND THEY’RE NOT GOING TO QUALIFY FOR ASYLUM AND NOW THAT THE MESSAGE IS GETTING OUT THAT WE ALL ARE TO THIS ADMINISTRATION EFFORTS WERE CLOSING THOSE LOOPHOLES AND SO NOW THE MESSAGE IS FINALLY GETTING OUT WE’RE TRYING O OVERCOME THE MESSAGE THAT THE CARTELS HAVE BEEN PUTTING OUT THERE THAT IT’S GOING TO BE A FREE RIDE IN THE UNITED STATES WE’RE NOW SENDING THE MESSAGE THAT IF YOU’RE COMING HERE’S ECONOMIC MIGRANTS. YOU’RE. NOT ALLOWED IN THE UNITED STATES THAT’S RIGHT A LOT OF PEOPLE. THAT INVOLVEMENT AND IS WHAT WE’RE DOING. MAKING A DIFFERENCE TO TRY TO KEEP THOSE PEOPLE SAFE AS THEY TRY TO MAKE THEIR JOURNEY. TO THIS COUNTRY AND OR IN. IN MEXICO ABSOLUTELY WE’RE WE’RE DEAL THE GOVERNMENT MEXICO AT HIGH LEVELS ALMOST A DAILY BASIS IN A LOCAL LEVEL WHICH REALLY A LOT OF TIMES THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS. I JUST RETURNED FROM A RGV AGAIN WHERE I TALKED OUR LOCAL LEADERSHIP AND EXPRESSED TO ME THE GREAT COLLABORATIVE WORKING RELATIONSHIP THEY HAVE WITH GOVERNOR MEXICO. FOR EXAMPLE GIVE EXAMPLE SO IN P. P. TIMES WERE WORKING WITH THE GOVERNMENT OF MEXICO TO MAKE SURE THAT THEIR CAPACITY RECEIVE PEOPLE. IS JUST THAT THAT THEY HAVE THE CAPACITY RECEIVE THEM SO THAT THEY’RE NOT OVERWHELMED WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THE TIMES AND DURATIONS OF ONE OR ACTUALLY TO RETURN THEM TO MEXICO. WHETHER IT’S A HOURS EARLYIN THE MORNING OR AT NIGHT WE’RE WORKING WITH THEM ON A CONSTANT BASIS. AGAIN ANOTHER IMPORTANT THING THAT WE’RE WORKING WITH THEM TO IS. IS IT’S NOT IT’S BIGGER THAN JUST IN PP SO WE’RE WORKING WITH THEM TO ADDRESS THE DRUG SMUGGLING ROUTES AND THE DRUG. SMUGGLING ORGANIZATION WE’LL WORK WITH THEM ON A DAILY BASIS TO HELP THEM IMPROVE THEIR ABILITY TO ACTUALLY CONDUCT OPERATIONS WITHIN MEXICO TO GO AFTER THE CARTELS AND DRUG SMUGGLING ORGANIZATIONS. AND THE GANG MEMBERS AND WE’RE DOING THE SAME THING WITH THE NORTHERN TRIANGLE COUNTRIES I THINK EVERYBODY HERE KNOWS BY NOW. ALL THREE NORTHERN TRIANGLE COUNTRIES HAVE SIGNED AGREEMENTS RIGHT NOW AND WE’RE AND LIKE I SAID MY IN MY OPENING REMARKS WE’RE WORKING WITH THOSE COUNTRIES ON A DAILY BASIS. I HAVE PERSONNEL THAT ARE DOWN IN THE NORTHERN TRIANGLE COUNTRIES TO HELP THEM IMPROVE THEIR CAPACITY NOT JUST WITH OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES. BUT ALSO THE RESIGNED CAPABILITIES AS WELL. IN TERMS OF. PAYING FOR MEXICO’S PARTICIPATION AND PROVIDING SECURITY ALONG THE BORDER TRYING WE AS AMERICANS HELPING TO PAY FOR THEM. I THINK WHAT WE’RE DOING IS WE’RE BEING. GOOD AT TRUE PARTNERS AS THEY ARE IN DEALING WITH THIS IS A REGIONAL CRISIS. WE ALL HAVE RESPONSIBILITIES A PART OF THIS THEY’RE THEY’RE HELPING US TO THINK ABOUT THIS. THEY’VE GOT TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND TROOPS THAT ARE NOW DEDICATED THIS. BIG OF A ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF TRIPS TO THE SOUTHERN BORDER INTERIOR ENFORCEMENT AND THE- AND THE THIRD U. S. MEXICO BORDER. EVERY EVERY LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTION THAT THEY TAKE THAT HELPS OUR COUNTRY. RIGHT NOW THEY’VE ALMOST DOUBLED THEIR SOUTHERN BORDER COUNTRY THE FACT THAT THEYHIS- RECEIVED FIFTY THOUSAND INDIVIDUALS TO MPP. THAT’S A GREAT COST. AND EXPENSE TO THEM THEY’RE HELPING US AND WE HELP THEM. THE SERVER WELL WHAT YOU’RE UP HERE I WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT A NUMBER OF INCIDENTS OVER THE PAST YEAR OF C. B. T. AGENTS HARASSING JOURNALISTS ON THEIR WAY INTO THE COUNTRY FROM OVERSEAS ASSIGNMENTS I CAN YOU SAY RIGHT NOW THAT THAT THAT CONDUCT IS UNACCEPTABLE AND MUSIC. WHAT YOU’RE DOING ABOUT IT TO STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING SO A COUPLE THINGS FIRST WILL UNEQUIVOCALLY LET ME SAY THAT ANY JOURNALIST RIGHT THAT IS STOPPED AND HARASSED YEAH TREATED IMPROPERLY BECAUSE THERE ARE JOURNALISTS IS ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE ONE OF QUICKLY AND SO WHAT WHAT WE DO AND I READ A RECENT ARTICLE ABOUT THAT AND WHEN THAT HAPPENS A COUPLE THINGS CAN HAPPEN. IF YOU FEEL THAT YOU HAVE BEEN INAPPROPRIATELY HANDLED A HARASSED THEN YOU NEED TO REPORT THAT IMMEDIATELY RIGHT AND THERE’S A COUPLE DIFFERENT AVENUES YOU CAN REPORTED DIRECTLY CVP ARE OFFICE OF PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY D. TO S. I. G. OCCURRED YOU TO DO THAT IF YOU FEEL YOU’VE BEEN AN APPROPRIATE LAST YOU NEED TO DO THAT WE PROACTIVELY IF WE SEE SOMETHING IN ARTICLE EVEN IF I HAS BEEN REPORTED WE’RE GONNA REPORTED TO OFFICE OF PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY BECAUSE HERE’S ONE THING I THINK WE CAN SAY WE CAN DISAGREE ALL WE WANT RIGHT I LEARNED FROM LIEUTENANT. A GENERAL A LEADER LONG TIME AGO DISRESPECT DOESN’T MEAN DISAGREEMENT RIGHT AND HIS LITTLE THING IN THE COUNTRY CALLED FREEDOM OF SPEECH SO ANYTHING THAT WE DO THAT WOULD IMPEDE THAT WE’RE. GONNA HOLD PEOPLE ACCOUNTABLE UNACCEPTABLE 1100% YES MA’AM. WANT TO YOU KNOW HOW MANY KIDS ARE CURRENTLY BEING HELD AT THE- THOUSAND NUMBER INSIDE SO I DON’T KNOW THAT SPECIFICALLY BUT WE CAN GET TO THOSE NUMBERS WE KEEP CHECK ABOUT. MORE BROADLY THE NORTHERN TRIANGLE COUNTRIES MEXICO. WHAT IS THE ADMINISTRATION DOING TO ADDRESS THE ROOT CAUSES OF THE PROBLEM THE VIOLENCE ON THE POVERTY I HEAR YOU TALKING ABOUT TROOPS AND REINFORCES THAT HAVE BEEN SENT IN BISBEE WAS ACTUALLY. SENDING IN RESOURCES THAT CAN HELP STEM THE FLOW THOSE CORE ISSUES. SO I THINK THAT SPOT ON THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION BECAUSE WE CAN ADDRESS OF THE LOOPHOLES IN OUR SYSTEM THOSE THOSE PULL FACTORS ALL WE WANT. BUT INTO WE ALSO HELP THOSE COUNTRIES ADDRESS THE PUSH FACTORS WERE ONLY GOING TO BE HALF THERE SO WE ARE IN AGAIN A COUPLE EXAMPLES RIGHT NOW BESIDES THE AGREEMENT THAT WAS SIGNED BY ALL THREE COUNTRIES. AND AGAIN. BOOK THATTHAT’S NOT JUST ABOUT THIS SILENT PART OF THAT THOSE AGREEMENTS REALLY GO TO THE HEART OF THE DRESS IN THIS AS TRUE PARTNERS IS A REGIONAL CRISIS TO DO JUST WHAT YOU HIT YOUR SPOT ON. TO INCREASE THEIR CAPACITY RIGHT TO GO AFTER THE SMUGGLING ORGANIZATIONS TO INCREASE OUR CAPACITY GO AFTER THE GANG MEMBERS TO STOP THAT VIOLENCE SO THAT’S ONE THING THERE WERE ABSOLUTELY HELP WITH. ANOTHER THING WE’RE TRYING TO DO IS HELP BUILD THE CAPACITY THERE ASYLUM CAPACITY AS WELL. SO WE’RE WE’RE DOING THOSE TYPE OF THINGS EVERY SINGLE DAY WITH THOSE NORTHERN TRIANGLE COUNTRIES TO HELP THEM BUILD BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY LOOK THE WORK TO AGENTS WILL TELL YOU THEY TALK TO THESE INDIVIDUALS. THEY THEY- THEY WANT TO STAY IN THEIR HOME COUNTRY RIGHT I MEAN THAT’S THEIR HOME. AND I’VE TALKED TO ALL THREE MINUTES TO SECURITY FOR THE NORTHERN TRIANGLE COUNTRIES AND THEY SAID TO ME IT’S IT WASN’T JUST A ME TO A GROUP OF THIS OFFICIALS I SAID. YOU KNOW ONE AMERICA PLEASE CHANGE YOUR BALLS FICTION LOOPHOLES BECAUSE TAKEN OR IT’S FOR EXAMPLE THIS YEAR TAKE VITALITY PROTECTING YOU OF OUR COUNTRY WE WANT OUR KIDS BACK FEATURE WALL. WITH IT WE’LL WORK WITH YOU TO STEM THE FLOW OF THOSE OF OUR CHILDREN LEAVE IN OUR COUNTRY. SO WE RECOGNIZE THAT AND WE ARE TRYING TO HELP THEM. YES SIR FOR A GIVEN THE DECLINING YOU’VE MENTIONED IT WERE APPREHENSIONS YOU SEEN OVER THE COURSE OF THE PAST FEW MONTHS AND ALSO THE COOPERATION OF THE MENTION THAT YOU RECEIVING FROM MEXICO IS A SAFE THIRD COUNTRY AGREEMENT WITH MEXICO EVEN NECESSARY SO I CAN TELL YOU RIGHT NOW WHAT WITH THE DIALOGUES THAT THAT WILL HAPPEN WITH MEXICO IS WHAT THEY’RE DOING RIGHT NOW IS INCREDIBLE SO WHAT WE’RE GOING TO CONTINUE HAVE DIALOGUES TO CAN SHOULD CONTINUE IMPROVED ANYWHERE THAT WE CAN WITH BETWEEN OUR PARTNERSHIP AND AGAIN TO REALLY LOOK AT THIS IS A REGIONAL CRISIS. BUT RIGHT NOW WE’RE JUST FOCUSING ON THE INCREDIBLE UP THAT’S GOING ON RIGHT NOW THEY THEY ARE MEXICO ABSOLUTE AGAIN AND I MEAN THIS IS THIS REALLY IS THE COOPERATION OF PARTNERSHIP WE HAVE. MEXICO RIGHT NOW REALLY IS ONE FOR THE HISTORY BOOKS IT REALLY IS. THREE SAYS. THAT SUCH AN AGREEMENT IS NOT NECESSARY BECAUSE OF THE- THE NUMBERS THAT YOU’VE ALSO CITED DO YOU DISAGREE WITH THE FOREIGN MINISTER THOUGH I DON’T RIGHT NOW. THE COOPERATION I MEAN IT’S A GOOD QUESTION RIGHT NOW THE COOPERATION THAT WE ARE RECEIVE WITH MEXICO RIGHT NOW. IT IS EXACTLY WHERE WE NEED TO BE I’LL GIVE AN EXAMPLE JUST LAST WEEK WAS THE FIRST TIME. TEAMS OTHER THAN MEXICANS THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THAT THE GOVERNMENT OF MEXICO ACTUALLY APPREHENDED. MORE O. T. M.’S THAN THE BORDER PATROL DEBT THE FIRST TIME SINCE WE START KEEPING THE STATS. THAT I THINK ILLUSTRATES THE INCREDIBLE WORK THAT YOU’RE DOING. YES MA’AM. OREGON AND TALKING ABOUT HOW LONG MEXICO THIS IS STAYING THERE. YOU VERY COMPLIMENTARY ABOUT WHAT A GREAT RIGHT NOW THE LAST TIME YOU WERE HERE. YOU WERE VERY SKEPTICAL ABOUT HOW LONG YOU KEEP THIS UP SO FEASIBLY. HOW LONG CAN THEY KEEP THIS LEVEL OF PRODUCTIVITY IN HELPING. US WITH THE WORK. SO I THINK HONESTY IS A LAW ENFORCEMENT INDIVIDUAL FOR A LONG TIME. YOU KNOW I THINK PART OF WHAT MAKES US OKAY JOBS WE ALWAYS MAINTAIN A HEALTHY DEGREE OF SKEPTICISM WHAT WE CAN TELL YOU THIRTY DAYS IS A LONG TIME IN THIS CRISIS. WHAT WHAT MEXICO SHOW ME IS THEIR SUSTAIN IN THIS THEIR CAPACITY IS GROWING UP ALL ON ALL THOSE FRONTS THEIR THEIR INSURANCE FOR SMITH THAT THEY’RE FORCED ON THE SOUTHERN BORDER. AS WELL AS THEIR CONTINUE EXPANSION MPP IN THE SUPPORT OF THAT. HAVING SAID THAT WHAT I FEEL THOUGH IS EVEN THOUGH THERE BEEN INCREDIBLE PARTNERS FOR DURABLE LASTING SOLUTION WE CANNOT RELY ON OTHER COUNTRIES TO FIX THE LOOPHOLES IN OUR SYSTEM. THERE BEEN GREAT PARTNERS BUT IN A DAY IT’S ALL RESPONSIBILITY IT’S CONGRESS’ RESPONSIBILITY AS THIS ADMINISTRATION THIS PRESIDENT IS COMING UP WITH THESE NEW INITIATIVES IN RATES AND POLICIES. IN EVEN THOUGH JUDICIAL ACTIVISM TRYING TO JOIN THOSE AND PUT UP OBSTACLES THE END OF THE DAY CONGRESS’S FAILURE TO ACT AS THE ISSUE. SO TO HAVE A DURABLE MEANINGFUL SOLUTION WITH RESPECT TO THIS CRISIS CONGRESS HAS GOT TO GET OFF THE BENCH WORK ON A BIPARTISAN MATTER TO PASS MEANINGFUL LEGISLATION TO ADDRESS THIS CRISIS I SAID THAT. AND WE KEEP SAYING THAT SO. YES SIR. YOU WERE VERY IF YOU SEVEN YOU CRAZY SO GOT BACK Y RIGHT NOW WILL CONTINUE TO TAKE A LOOK AT IT THROUGHOUT THE DAY RIGHT HERE ON FOX TEN EXTRA BUT THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING US I’M HOST MIKE PAGE ALWAYS GREAT TO BE HERE WITH YOU WILL NOW WITH A NEW POLL OUT THAT SAYS OF THE MAJORITY. OF AMERICANS AT 58% SUPPORT AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP WERE WILLING TO DEMOCRATS AS WELL AS HOUSE REPUBLICANS ON THIS VERY ISSUE WE’RE GONNA START REPRESENTATIVE ADAM. SCHIFF THERE THE DEMOCRAT FROM CALIFORNIA. UP TO WITHHOLD THIS KEY WITNESSES TESTIMONY TODAY. WE KNOW FROM THE TEXT MESSAGES THAT INVESTORS ONLINE WAS A DISCUSSION WITH UKRAINIAN COUNTERPARTS WITH FELLOW DIPLOMATIC PERSONNEL. AND THE PRESIDENT AS WELL AS AT LEAST ONE U. S. SENATOR. ABOUT THE COURSE OF EVENTS THAT WE ARE INVESTIGATING. WE KNOW FROM THOSE TEXT MESSAGES THAT DIPLOMATIC PERSONNEL RAISE THE CONCERN WITH HIM THAT MILITARY ASSISTANCE WAS BEING WITHHELD. TO SECURE HELP ME CRANE IN THE PRESIDENT’S REELECTION CAMPAIGN WE KNOW THAT AMBASSADOR SOLOMON HAD AT LEAST ONE DISCUSSION WITH A FELLOW DIPLOMAT ON THAT VERY SUBJECT. OF WHY MILITARY ASSISTANCE WAS BEING WITHHELD WE KNOW MASTER SONG AND WAS A KEY PLAYER. IN EFFORTS TO. OBTAIN A COMMITMENT FROM UKRAINE TO INVESTIGATE A BOGUS CONSPIRACY THEORY ABOUT THE TWENTY SIXTEEN ELECTION AS WELL AS- JOE BIDEN AND HIS SON. AND WE KNOW THAT THE INVESTOR HAS RELEVANT EVIDENCE ON WHETHER THE MEETING WITH THE PRESIDENT THAT THE UKRAINIANS DESPERATELY SOUGHT. A WITHPRESIDENT TRUMP WAS BEING CONDITIONED ON THESE INVESTIGATIONS AT THE PRESENT BELIEVE WOULD HELP HIS REELECTION CAMPAIGN. IT IS HARD TO OVERSTATE THE SIGNIFICANCE. I’M NOT JUST ABOUT TO SILENCE TESTIMONY AND THE DOCUMENTS WHAT THE TESTIMONY OF OTHERS AS WELL. THE FAILURE TO PRODUCE THIS WITNESS. THE FAILURE TO PRODUCE THESE DOCUMENTS WE CONSIDER YET ADDITIONAL STRONG EVIDENCE OF OBSTRUCTION OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL FUNCTIONS OF CONGRESS A CO EQUAL BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT. THERE ARE FOUR ISSUES THAT WE ARE LOOKING AT AT LEAST FOUR ISSUES THAT WE’RE LOOKING AT ALL OF THAT GO TO THE HEART OF OUR NATIONAL SECURITY. AND BY PREVENTING US FROM HEARING FROM THIS WITNESS AND OBTAIN THESE DOCUMENTS. THE PRESIDENT AND SECRETARY OF STATE PART TAKING ACTIONS THAT PREVENT US FROM GETTING THE FACTS NEEDED TO PROTECT THE NATION’S SECURITY. WE ARE LOOKING INTO WHETHER THE PRESIDENT SOLICITED FOREIGN HELP. IN A US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION AGAIN. WE ARE LOOKING INTO THE ISSUE OF WHETHER A MEETING THAT UKRAINE DESPERATELY SOUGHT WITH THE PRESIDENT AT THE WHITE HOUSE WAS BEING CONDITIONED ON THE WILLINGNESS OF UKRAINE TO INVESTIGATE THIS BOGUS. IT’S PERCY THREE ABOUT TWENTY SIXTEEN AND INVESTIGATE THE BIDENS. WE’RE LOOKING AT WHETHER UKRAINE WAS GIVEN REASON TO BELIEVE. THAT MILITARY ASSISTANCE A DESPERATELY NEEDED TO FIGHT OFF THE RUSSIANS WAS MEETING WITH HELD. UNTIL IT MADE COMMITMENTS TO DO THESE POLITICAL INVESTIGATIONS FOR THE PRESIDENT. AND WE ARE LOOKING INTO THE QUESTION OF WHETHER THERE WAS AN EFFORT BY THE PRESIDENT THE SECRETARY OF STATE AND OTHERS. TO COVER UP. THIS MISCONDUCT. MASTER SONG ONE IS A IMPORTANT WITNESS ON EACH OF THESE SUBJECTS. HE IS NOT THE ONLY IMPORTANT WITNESS. AND WE WILL CONSIDER THIS FACT TODAY AND WE’VE HAD MEMBERS FLY IN FROM AROUND THE COUNTRY TO HEAR THEM **** TESTIMONY. AS WELL AS THE WITHHOLDING OF THE MASTERS DOCUMENTS. AS WELL AS EFFORTS THAT MAY BE MADE TO DISCOURAGE OR HAVING THE EFFECT OF DISCOURAGING OTHER. STATE DEPARTMENT WITNESSES FROM COMING FOR AN TESTIFYING. AS THEY AGREED TO. TO BE FURTHER ACTS OF OBSTRUCTION OF A CO EQUAL BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT. THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW IMPEACHMENT IN CORY’S IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY. IT GOES TO THE CORE OF WHETHER THE PRESIDENT ABUSES OFFICE. TO SEEK POLITICAL HELP IN HIS REELECTION CAMPAIGN AND DID SO TO THE DETRIMENT OF OUR NATION’S SECURITY. DID SO BY DEFECTIVE LEE COERCING A COUNTRY THAT HAS BEEN INVADED BY RUSSIA. TO INVESTIGATE A RIVAL. AND CONDITION THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THIS COUNTRY AND THAT COUNTRY. ON WHETHER THEY WERE WILLING TO PLAY BALL. THAT IS THE GRAVEL ONE OF THE ISSUES THAT WE ARE INVESTIGATING THAT THIS IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY IS LOOKING INTO IT IS HARD TO IMAGINE A SET OF FACTS. MORE DAMAGING TO OUR NATIONAL SECURITY AND ARE STANDING IN THE WORLD. BUT ALSO MORE OF A FUNDAMENTAL BREACH OF THE PRESENCE OF OFFICE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW IF THE PRESIDENT IS ACTING IN THEIR INTERESTS IN THE NATION’S INTEREST WITH AN EYE TOWARDS OUR NATIONAL SECURITY. AND NOT IN HIS NARROW PERSONAL POLITICAL INTERESTS THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW INDEED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE A NEED TO KNOW. AND FOR THIS IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY WE ARE DETERMINED TO FIND THE ANSWERS THANK YOU. CONTACT WITH THE WHISTLE BLOWERS AT THIS AT THIS L I’M GONNA LET SOME OF MY- SIMON SAYSHE’S DISAPPOINTED THAT HE WASN’T ALLOWED TO ATTEND THIS DEPOSITION YEAH AND I SAID THE SAME THING WE’RE WE’RE WE’RE WE’RE WE WISH YOU WOULD BAIL TEST BY TWO BUT WE FULLY UNDERSTAND WHY THE ADMINISTRATION MADE THE DECISION THEY DID WHEN YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE A CHAIRMAN. RELEASE CERTAIN PARTS OF WHAT WAS SAID IN A CLOSED DOOR INTERVIEW AND NOT RELEASE THE ENTIRE TRANSCRIPT AND GIVE THE CONTACTS. YOU CAN SEE WHY THEY DID WANT TO SUBJECT INVESTORS ALL INTO THE SAME COUNTRY. ALL THE MORE REASON WHY HE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO COME UP AND TESTIFY TO ANSWER ALL OF YOUR QUESTIONS. YEAH THERE IS NO WRONG DOING THAT AND THAT’S A BORDER WAS CLEAR REMEMBER BASKETBALL FOR IS. THE ONE I WENT OUT RELEASED THE TRANSCRIPT SO YOU CAN ALL SEE WHAT A BASKETBALL COURT TOLD US THERE IS NO WRONGDOING HE WAS COMPLETELY. AS CLEAR AS COULD BE NO QUID PRO QUO WHAT SO EVER THE TWO GUYS ON THE CALL NO QUID PRO QUO WHATSOEVER. DEMOCRAT CHAIRMAN AFTER THEY READ THE TRANSCRIPT SAID NO QUID PRO QUO WHATSOEVER. BUT AT INTO DOES ONE THAT THAT INFORMATION OUT THERE SO HE’S HOLED UP THE TRANSCRIPT ANY ANY ANY CONTINUES TO. CONTINUE TO HAVE THIS BIAS AGAINST THE PRESENT. I BELIEVE IT WILL ACTUALLY I DO BELIEVE THAT WILL ACTUALLY GET TO HEAR FROM THE AMBASSADOR BUT WILL ONLY GET TO HEAR FROM HIM WHEN THERE IS A FAIR PROCESS. THIS IS NOTA FAIR PROCESS. I CAN TELL YOU. WE SPENT MORE TIME IN THIS CASE. LAST TIME WITH AMBASSADOR VOLKER. THEN ADAM SCHIFF. YOU KNOW HE CAME OUT HERE YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED THAT HE CAME OUT HERE ALL TO THE PRESS. AND WHAT DID HE DO. HE GAVE THIS BUT NINE THING AND THEN RACED OFF TO A FUND RAISER. SO HERE’S HERE’S WHAT WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND. IS THIS HAS TO BE A FAIR PROCESS. AND WHEN YOU HAVE A PRESS RELEASE. BEING DRAFTED BY OUR DEMOCRAT COLLEAGUES CHERRY PICKING TEXT MESSAGES WHEN THE FULL TAX. OF IMPASSABLE FIRST. TESTIMONY LAST WEEK WOULD HAVE EXONERATED THOSE PRESENT. LET’S RELEASE. I’M ALL FOR BRINGING THE A BHASKARAN. BUT LESS ONLY DO SO AFTER WE RELEASE THE FULL. CONCERNS WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT HERE. THE PRESIDENT ASKING FOR. ONE YOU CORY’S. TO INVESTIGATE JOE BIDEN. AND ALSO THE PRESIDENT SAYING LAST WEEK THAT CHINA’S. I DO ANY OF YOU HAVE TO START. PRESENCE DOING HIS JOB IS THAT WHEN YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT THE HARD EARNED TAX DOLLARS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE GOING TO A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT THE PRESIDENT’S GONNA MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS NO CORRUPTION THERE HE’S DOING HIS JOB HIS DUTY AS THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF HIS DUTY AS THE PRESENT UNITED STATES. SO I DON’T HAVE A CONCERN. YOUR CONCERNS ABOUT THIS PROCESS. YEAH WE’LL SEE WE’LL SEE THAT WOULD SURE LIKE TO SEE THE VOLCKER TESTIMONY RELEASED BEFORE WE CONTINUE THE DEPOSITIONS AND TRANSCRIBED INTERVIEWS AND WHAT WHAT WE SEE IN THIS IMPEACHMENT IS A KANGAROO COURT AND CHAIRMAN SHIFT IS ACTING LIKE A MALICIOUS CAPTAIN KANGAROO HE LIED ABOUT THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION THAT HE HAD MORE THAN CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE HE LIED ABOUT MEETING WITH THE WHISTLE BLOWER PRIOR TO THE WHISTLE BLOWERS ULTIMATE. TEST OF OUR ABOUT WRITING OF THEIR COMPLAINT AND WE WOULD LIKE TO UNPACK THE LAST SET OF SHIFTS LIES REGARDING THE VOLCKER TESTIMONY BEFORE WE GO TO THE NEXT SET OF SHIP FLIES ON SUN ONE OR ANY FURTHER FOR ANY FURTHER. SINCE WE HAD IT SHOULD BEEN OUT IMMEDIATELY. CONTACT. THE CLASSIFICATION DOESN’T REALLY MATTER RESPOND TO WE THINK THERE ARE REAL CONCERNS THERE I KNOW YOU’VE DONE SOME REPORTING ON THAT SO WE THINK THEY’RE REAL CONCERNS THAT HOPEFULLY OVER TIME THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BE ABLE TO SEE CAN’T REALLY GET INTO ALL THAT. BUT YEAH WE HAVE. WE HAVE WE HAVE REAL CONCERNS. ACTION TO ACTUALLY. THE OF THE LORD. NOW THAT I’VE I MEAN I THINK I THINK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW WHO THE WAS LOWER IS BUT WHEN I GOT WHAT I CAN DO THAT WHY WOULD THE STATE DEPARTMENT CANCEL THIS DEPOSITION JUST A FEW HOURS BEFORE. TO BEGIN AFTER AMBASSADOR SOMEONE HAD ALREADY FLOWN BACK YOUR BREAST I THINK THE HOPE WAS WE WOULD HAVE THE VOLCKER TEST JUST GIVE THE MAJORITY ENOUGH TIME THE MAX AMOUNT OF TIME TO RELEASE OF TESTIMONY THAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK AND SO WE HAVE WE HAVE THAT INFORMATION OUT THERE WE KNOW IN GOOD FAITH THAT THEY IN GOOD FAITH OR GOING TO RELEASE THE TESTIMONY FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO THE AS OPPOSED TO PARSING OUT LITTLE PIECES THAT SUPPORT THEIR NARRATIVE. AND IF WILLING TO DO THAT THEN I THINK THAT THE THAT THE ADMINISTRATION WE WILLING TO DO MORE. MOVING FOR BUT IF IT’S GOING TO BE A ONE SIDED DEAL. YOU GUYS ARE ALL JOURNALISTS IS THERE IT IS SINGLE JOURNALISTS HERE. THAT DOESN’T WANT TO SEE. THE FULL TRANSCRIPT OF AMBASSADOR VOLCKER’S TESTIMONY. I AGREE I AGREE AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AGREE WITH EVERYONE OF YOU LET THEM JUDGE FOR THEMSELVES THAT’S WHAT WE NEED IT IS DRAWN. THE DIRECTOR. FOR ALL THE OTHER WITH A FEMALE INMATE ADAM SCHIFF MAY BE ARGUMENTS I’M JUST PUTTING IT OUT THERE. IS AN ARGUMENT AGAINST BELIEVE. THE ART. I HAVE NOT HEARD THAT ARGUMENT AND SO IT. IS AN ARGUMENT AGAINST. TRANSPARENCY THERE’S AN ARGUMENT. HOLD ON A SECOND THERE’S AN ARGUMENT IN FAVOR OF CHERRY PICKING SELECTIVE RELEASES OF TEXTS THERE’S AN ARGUMENT IN FAVOR OF THE ONLY TELLING THE AMERICAN PUBLIC. WHAT IS BEST IN THE INTERESTS OF WARNING TO TAKE DOWN A SITTING PRESIDENT MAYBE YOU SHOULD ASK WHAT WAS SAID INSIDE OF FOKKER’S DEPOSITION DURING IS TRANSCRIBED INTERVIEW WITH REGARDS TO ADAM SHIPS FAIRY TALE QUID PRO QUO CHARGE. THAT AID FROM THE UNITED STATES TO UKRAINE. WAS BEING A LINKS. TO INVESTIGATION TO THE BIDENS ONE US WHAT DID IMPASSABLE KERR SAY ABOUT THAT THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION I’M GLAD YOU ASKED THAT QUESTION AND I’LL TELL YOU THE REASON WHY THE QUESTION WAS SO IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO ASK IS FOR MANY THINGS BECAUSE HE WAS IN THIS ROOM FOR SEVERAL HOURS. AND DURING SEVERAL HOURS OF TESTIMONY HE TALKED ABOUT HOW PRISONS ONCE HE HAD NO IDEA THAT THERE WAS A HOLD ON EIGHT AT THE TIME THE JULY TWENTY FIFTH CALL. AMBASSADOR VOLKER TAUGHT TESTIFIED ABOUT THE READ OUT OF THE PHONE CALL THAT WAS MADE TO HIM THAT HE HAD THE DOES NOTHING TO READ ABOUT THERE BEING A HOLD. OF YOU ESTATE OR- WOULD PROTOCOL. WARREN BASS POKER TO PROVIDE THIS IS A- PREDATOR VIEW WOULD TELL YOU. IF YOU ASK THIS QUESTION I’M GLAD THAT WE’RE HAVING THIS DISCUSSION. THE NEXT DAY AMBASSADOR VOLKER MEETS A PRESIDENTIAL IN SKI. IN THAT MEETING THERE IS NO REFERENCE TO A QUID PRO QUO. YOUR PRESENCE LET’S GET HAVING ANY IDEA THERE WAS A HOLD ON IT. FOR OVER THE COURSE OF AMBASSADOR VOLCKER’S NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS ENGAGING WITH UKRAINE. UKRAINE MAKES NO REFERENCE THAT ARE BEING A HOLD ON EIGHT OR THEY’RE BEING A QUID PRO QUO. AND BY THE WAY YOUR ALSO BEST ROCAR TESTIFIED TO. THIS ENTIRE TIME THE AID WAS GETTING RELEASED. IT WAS GOING TO GET RELEASED I GUESS WHAT HAPPENED. A DOT RELEASED AND YOU KNOW WHAT DO THEY HAVE TO HAPPEN THERE WAS NO NEW INVESTIGATION HAD TO GET CREATIVE THIS WHOLE THING IS A FAIRY TALE ADAM SCHIFF IS MISLEADING YOU. AND YOUR PLAYING ALONG WITH IT MANY OF YOU ARE AND THE AMERICAN PUBLIC ISN’T GETTING DECEIVED WHEN ADAM SCHIFF SAID FOR EXAMPLE THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP. WAS ASKING PRESENCE LEWINKSI TO MANUFACTURE DURCH. ON THE BIDENS IOTA BASSAR VOELKER TESTIFY TO THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY UNTRUE THAT’S WHAT WE WOULD CALL INCONVENIENT FACTS THE NARRATIVE YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE ADAM SCHIFF HAS BEEN SAYING TO YOU. AND THE AMERICAN PUBLIC THAT WAS NOT TRUE THAT HE HAD NO CONTACT WITH THE WHISTLE BLOWER HE’D LIKE TO BUT DO YOU HAVE ANY CONTACT HE LIED. YOU WILL SEE WHAT ABOUT WHEN HE WAS OPENING STATEMENT FROM THE ACTING DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE AS TO WHAT WAS. ENDS IN FROM THE WORLD AS FAR AS WHAT THE TRANSCRIBED INTERVIEW SAID. GOING BACK TO AMBASSADOR VOLKER TRANSCRIBED INTERVIEW AND A PROCESS. FOR HERE. READY TO DO OUR PART. IF ANYONE IS GOING TO TESTIFY BEHIND THOSE CLOSED DOORS WE’RE GONNA MAKE SURE THAT WE’RE THERE TO ENSURE THAT THE OTHER 99% OF THE STORY IS BEING TOLD. BECAUSE GUESS WHAT IF WE WEREN’T THERE LAST THURSDAY. YOU WOULD HAVE NO IDEA OF EVERYTHING THEIR BEST VOELKER SAID TO OLE BLUE LITTERING. ADAM SHIFT VERY TELL QUID PRO QUO CHARGE YOU HAVE NO IDEA SO WE’RE HERE THUS FAR AS YOU MINISTRATION GOES IF THEY DON’T WANT TO SEND AMBASSADOR SOLOMON HERE. BECAUSE THIS IS A KANGAROO COURT. BECAUSE THERE HAS NOT BEEN A VOTE TO LAUNCH AN IMPEACHMENT CORY BECAUSE MINORITY DOES NOT HAVE ANY RIGHTS FOR SUBPOENAS BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT DOESN’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO HAVE COUNSEL PRESENT TO ASK QUESTIONS. FOR SUBPOENA POWER TO PRESENT EVIDENCE. THIS ENTIRE THING IS A POLITICAL CHARADE IS A CLOWN SHOW WE’RE HERE WE’RE READY FOR WHATEVER’S GOING TO BE TESTIFYING IN THE ROOM. BUT WE HAVE TO BE HERE BECAUSE IF WE’RE NOT ADAM SCHIFF SHORES HECK IS NOT GOING TO TELL YOU. BECAUSE ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS RIGHT NOW RELEASED A TRANSCRIPT INTERVIEW BECAUSE HE WON’T BECAUSE IT DESTROYS HIS NARRATIVE IT UNDERCUTS IT BLOWS IT UP THAT’S WHAT WE HEARD OVER THE COURSE OF SEVERAL HOURS. BY THE WAY. GERRY CONNOLLY COMES ON TO YOU KNOW EVERY BURNETT ON SCENE AND SEVEN O’CLOCK ON THURSDAY AND THEY HAVE A BACK AND. FORTH FROM JIM JORDAN A PLAY A CLIP FROM ME. WHERE THEY’RE BASICALLY SAYING YOU’RE GERRY CONNOLLY YOU DIDN’T HEAR ANYTHING OF WHAT JIM JORDAN RESULTING SAYS THAT THEY HEARD RIGHT. AND HAVE THIS BACK AND FORTH BASICALLY DUMBING DOWN THEIR AUDIENCE. AND WHAT ISN’T POINTED OUT IN THAT BACK AND FORTH. IS THAT GERRY CONNOLLY WAS THE LAST PERSON TO SHOW UP. IS THE FIRST ONE TO LEAVE INSTANTLY HE WASN’T THERE FOR ANY OF IT. SO WHAT’S IMPORTANT IS THAT WE’RE HERE AND WHAT I CAN ANSWER WE CAN ANSWER ANY QUESTION YOU WANT AS FAR AS WHAT AMBASSADOR VOLKER TESTIFY TO CREDIBLY EXCEPTIONALLY PROFESSIONALLY BUT YOU’RE NOT ASKING ANY OF THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION SOME OF YOU ARE. MANY OF YOU ARE ASKING MORE SUPPORT QUESTIONS SUCH AS. WHAT DID YOU HEAR LAST THURSDAY THAT WE DON’T YET KNOW ABOUT ADAM SCHIFF ONE ANSWER BUT HE SHOULD HE’S RELEASED A TRANSCRIPT CARLES. A COUPLE OF TIMES LIVE LOOK AT OUR TOWER CAME RIGHT NOW DOWNTOWN PHOENIX THERE IN THE DISTANCE ON THIS TUESDAY HOPE YOU ALL ARE ALL HAVING A GREAT DAY AND SO FAR I MEAN I WAS MIKE PAGE ALWAYS GREAT TO BE HERE WITH YOU THANK YOU AGAIN FOR JOINING US HERE ON NEWS NOW WHAT WE TRY TO BRING YOU. EVENTS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY AS THEY ARE HAPPENING WHEN NEWS CONFERENCES HAPPEN WE TRY TO BRING IT TO YOU ALWAYS IN ITS ENTIRETY SO THANK YOU FOR BEING PART OF NEWS NOW EVERYBODY IN RIGHT NOW WHILE WE DO WAIT FOR SOME ON NEWS CONFERENCES FROM AROUND THE COUNTRY LET’S SHOW A LITTLE BIT EARLIER TODAY SPEAKING THE HOUSE. NANCY PELOSI IN TALKING ABOUT PRESCRIPTION DRUG PRICES TOGETHER I WISH HIM GOOD SHOULD SHOW WE SAY INDICATIONS FROM THE ADMINISTRATION THAT THE NATURE OF THE LEGISLATION IS CONSISTENT WITH WHAT THEY HAVE INDICATED THEY MIGHT BE SUPPORTIVE OF. THEIR OTHER CONSIDERATIONS THAT HAVE ENTERED THE SITUATION SO IN ANY EVENT WE THINK PUBLIC SENTIMENT IS EVERYTHING IN OUR MEMBERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE HAVING EVENTS ABOUT THIS SUBJECT OVER THIS STUFF DISTRICT WORK PERIOD I’M SURE THAT NONE OF THEM IS THIS WONDERFUL AT THE WHAT. WE ARE HAVING. BECAUSE OF THE BECAUSE OF ALL OF YOU AND TO THE UNIVERSITY OF ONE IN TEN YOU KNOW WE HAVE UNIVERSITY OF SUMMITS CALIFORNIA SAN FRANCISCO I’M FROM BALTIMORE. JOHNS HOPKINS SO THERE’S KIND OF A LIKE A LITTLE. FOR INTO ALL OF THIS. ABOUT THE EXTRA MILE. GRANTING FROM THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. TO INSTITUTIONS OF EXCELLENCE IS SO IMPORTANT TO THEM THANK YOU AWFUL FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE I CONSIDER THIS A VERY IMPORTANT. I WANT TO HEAR WHAT YOU ALL HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS BECAUSE WE CAME TO HERE. TO SAVE WHERE WE ARE BACK HOW WE COULD IMPROVE IT SO THANK YOU AND AGAIN SUSAN A CONGRESSWOMAN DEBONAIR IS ON THE COMMITTEE OF JURISDICTION UNDER THAT ON THE SUBCOMMITTEE OF JURISDICTION SO SHOULD BE RIGHT THERE WHEN THEY MAKE DECISIONS ABOUT. WITH ALL THE SAVINGS HOW THAT MONEY BE SPENT HOW CAN WE MAKE ALL THIS MUCH MORE TRANSPARENT THEY’RE STILL THINGS NOT WRITTEN INTO THE BILL BUT LEFT ON FURTHER TO THE COMMITTEES WHICH WROTE THE BILLS TO BEGIN WITH BUT NOW. WITH THE BENEFIT OF PUBLIC SENTIMENT TO SEE WHERE WE GO FROM HERE AND WILL BE STARTING. TO WORK ON THAT WHEN WE GET BACK TO YOU NEXT WEEK. THAT YOU TALK ABOUT NEGOTIATING THE MOST EXPENSIVE DRUGS ON THE DAWN OF COMPETITION WOULD BE NEGOTIATED YOU SAID THAT AND THE MAXIMUM PRICE WOULD BE A 120% OF THIS INTERNATIONAL AVERAGE. BUT THAT ONE JUST APPLY TO MEDICARE I WONDER IF YOU TALK ABOUT HOW THAT WILL IMPACT EVERYONE GOT PRICES THANK YOU FOR THE QUESTION. THE ONE WE. IN AN EARLIER TIME WHEN WE WERE DOING THE. THE SIX ZERO SIX WE WERE SAYING THAT NEGOTIATE THE PRICE OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS FOR MEDICARE BECAUSE THAT WOULD REDUCE THE PUBLIC MONEY THE AND THEN THE IMPACT ON SENIORS IN THIS BUT WITH THIS LEGISLATION WE’VE TAKEN IT TO NOT JUST MEDICARE. BUT ALSO TO ALL WHO WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN IT SO IT GOES BEYOND MEDICARE GOES INTO PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE ITSELF SO THIS IS FOR EVERYONE. SO YEAH THAT MAXIMUM PRICE WOULD BE AVAILABLE TO PRIVATE PLANS AND THEY COULD COME UP WITH A LOWER PRICE IF THEY COULD GET IT BUT THAT MEANS. THAT WOULD HAVE A HUGE IMPACT ON ON. FOLKS EVERYWHERE NOW THERE’S ALSO IMPORTANT PART. OF THE LEGISLATION. ON. ON THE OUT OF POCKET. CAP BECAUSE RIGHT NOW. ONE IN THE YOU KNOW ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE HEAR FROM CONSTITUENTS ALIVE AND GLARING OMISSION OF THE CURRENT MEDICARE DRUG BENEFIT IS THE LACK OF AN OUT OF POCKET CAP I HAVE A CONSTITUENT JOHN FROM ARLINGTON HE TOLD ME HIS WIFE IS IN THE DOUGHNUT HOLE PAYS TWO HUNDRED AND TEN DOLLARS EVERY TWO WEEKS FOR HER MEDICATIONS. AND SO HOW WILL THE OUT OF POCKET CAN AFFECT SENIORS LIKE JOHN AND HIS WIFE WELL THE ONE OF THE BREAKTHROUGHS AND THE LEGISLATION IS THAT THERE WOULD BE A TWO THOUSAND DOLLAR CASH ANYONE CAN AND THE- THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT’S AN ENDLESS ENDLESS MAKE NOW IN TERMS OF WE’RE AT ESPECIALLY IN THE MEDICARE PART D. IN THE REST. OF THAT THIS ENDS. AND SOME OF THESE DRUGS ARE. MARIAH ELLIS BUT THEY’RE ALSO. INCREDIBLY EXPENSIVE ENDLESSLY EXPENSIVE SO THERE WOULD BE. A TWO THOUSAND DOLLAR CASH. NO THERE IS A BILL IN THE SENATE NOT AS A SHALL WE SAY. TRANSFORMATIONS FORMATIVE IS OUR BILL BUT IF IT HAS WHAT THIRTY FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS THINK IT IS THE CAT. IN THE SENATE SO THERE’S A RECOGNITION THAT THERE HAS TO BE A CAT WILL NEGOTIATE THAT BUT IT’S A BIG DIFFERENCE THE DIFFERENCE IS NOT BETWEEN 200-033-0000 THIRTY FIVE HUNDRED IS BETWEEN NO CAT WE WANT TO KEEP IT AS LOW AS POSSIBLE. AND AS WE SEE WHAT THE SAVINGS ARE TO SEE IF WE CAN’T MAKE IT. SOME OF THAT BENEFIT FLOW TO OUR SENIORS FOR THE. THAT’S A I THINK THAT’S A HUGE POINT. AND SO IMPORTANT FOR SO MANY PEOPLE HO ARE PAYING. ME WELL OVER TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS AND PRICES EVERY YEAR WE WOULD BE SO SURPRISED AND YOU KNOW SOME OF THESE JOKES ARMOR REGULARS MANY OF THEM. US SPRANG FROM BASIC BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH AT THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH AND THAT THE ORGANS THAT AGENCY HAS THE- MIRACULOUS POWER TO KILLER. AND IT’S A FABULOUS AND WONDERFUL THING. WE WANT THE BENEFITS OF THE TO BE FOR ALL AMERICANS NOT JUST THOSE WHO& CAN PAY THOSE BIG PRICES TO IT AND SO RECOGNIZING THAT MANY OF THE PRIVATE SECTOR INNOVATIONS HAVE SPRUNG REALLY FROM THE BASIC BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH. WE FEEL THERE IS AN OBLIGATION FOR THE EVERYONE IN OUR COUNTRY TO PARTICIPATE BECAUSE EVERYONE HELPED MAKE IT POSSIBLE. I READ ANOTHER CONSTITUENT ON NANCY FROM KIRKLAND AND SHE TOLD ME HOW HER MEDICATION SEEM TO JUMP JUMP IN PRICE EVERY SIX MONTHS. SO THERE’S ALSO PART OF LEGISLATION TO DEAL WITH THESE TYPES OF PRICE HIGH PRICES FOR SUFFICE. AND THE- PRICES THAT ARE INCREASING. MUCH FASTER THAN INFLATION AND SO CAN’T HAVE LITTLE BIT WELL THEN AND CAN YOUR COMMITTEE WILL HAVE TO WEIGH IN ON TRANSPARENCY OF HOW AND WHY THIS. DO THESE INCREASES HAPPEN AND YOU KNOW. WE ARE GOING TO SWITCH GEARS HERE TAKE IT OUT TO A LOT OF EVENT RIGHT NOW IN DALLAS TEXAS WERE ACTUALLY GETTING AN UPDATE ON THE- KEY WITNESSES THAT WAS IN THE AMBER. I GOT YOUR OR TRIAL THAT WAS FOUND FATALLY SHOT. WE ARE GETTING AN UPDATE RIGHT HERE FROM POLICE LET’S LISTEN RIGHT HERE ON NEWS NOW. TO THE FAMILY.

AS YOU KNOW THERE’S BEEN SPECULATION AND RUMORS THAT HAVE BEEN SHARED BY COMMUNITY. LEADERS CLAIMING THAT MR BROWN’S DEATH WAS RELATED TO THE AMBER GEIGER TRIAL IN SOMEHOW THE DALLAS POLICE DEPARTMENT WAS RESPONSIBLE. I ASSURE YOU THAT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE.

MAYBE EVEN A LITTLE BIT OF LIKE LOVING GUILT TRIPPING JUST REALIZE LIKE NONE OF IT WAS WORKING AND- HAD TO ACCEPT THAT WE HAVE VERY DIFFERENT WRITING STYLES BUT HOPEFULLY. KIND OF COULD STILL MERGE THEM TOGETHER EVEN IF ONE STARTED KINDA ON HANDED ONE STARTED ON A COMPUTER. OKAY. I HAVE TO SAY IN MY DEFENSE. YOU KNOW WHO ELSE RIGHTS LONG SHE SAYS THIS EVERY SHE SAID THIS WE LITERALLY LIKE EVERY DAY THAT WE ARE WORKING TO ROCK OBAMA WRITES HIS BOOKS ONE HAND. SHE WAS LIKE YOU KNOW WHAT. PRESIDENT OBAMA DOES IT DO YOU AND I WAS LIKE YOU KNOW WHAT LIKE I BUT IT’S ACTUALLY IN WHICH SHE DIDN’T AS WELL. AND YOU KNOW. OKAY WELL THE BOOK DEFINITELY READ LIKE A CONVERSATION BECAUSE SO THE GREAT THING ABOUT IT FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE OBVIOUSLY ALL HERE AND GOING TO BE THE BOOK IS THAT HE SORT OF A CONVERSING BACK AND FORTH BY THE WRITING AN ESSAY BUT THEN HAVING A BIT OF THE YOU IN A BIT OF USE YOUR USE OF MIXING TOGETHER BUT YOU START OFF WITH I WANNA START. WITH YOUR FIRST IMPRESSIONS IN THE BOOK. WHICH IS REALLY OUT ONE OF THE MOST POIGNANT PARTS OF IT. YOU START OUT WRITING ABOUT DOROTHY ROCK. I’M GRANDMA DOROTHY IN VIRGINIA KELLEY. GRANDMA GINGER. TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THESE TWO PHENOMENAL WOMEN WHO MEAN SO MUCH OBVIOUSLY TO BOTH OF YOU. WELL WHEN WE STARTED THIS CONVERSATION ABOUT. OUR DIFFERENT EXPERIENCES GROWING UP BECAUSE WHEN I WAS GROWING UP WHEN I WAS A YOUNG GIRL THE ONLY WOMEN I KNEW WHO WORKED OUTSIDE THE HOME OR MY TEACHERS AND THE PUBLIC SCHOOL LIBRARIANS. AND JUST HAD A VERY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE ODD SO WE TALKED ABOUT THE PEOPLE WE KNEW. CLOSELY IN OUR FAMILIES WHO INFLUENCED US WHO WE ADMIRED WHO WE THOUGHT WERE GOT SEE. AND OF COURSE PEOPLE THAT WE ENCOUNTERED INCLUDING FICTIONAL. AS WELL AS HISTORICAL AND CONTEMPORARY WOMEN. AND I THINK IT’S FAIR TO SAY THAT YOU KNOW MY MOTHER AND BILLS MOTHER WORE TO IT GOT SEE IS STICKING WOMEN THAT I’VE EVER KNOWN AND CERTAINLY FOR CHELSEA HAVING THOSE TWO WOMEN AS HER GRANDMOTHER’S WAS A INCREDIBLY FORMATIVE SHE HAD MY MOTHER UNTIL SHE WAS AN ADULT SO SHE COULD. REALLY DEVELOP AN AND- RELATIONSHIP WITH HER AND SADLY BILL’S MOTHER DIED WHEN SHE WAS JUST TWELVE SO. WE TALKED A LOT ABOUT THAT AND WE THOUGHT. REALLY WE NEED TO START WITH THOSE TWO WOMEN TO ONE OF. THEM TO THAT I MEAN I AM SO GRATEFUL TO MY GRANDMOTHER’S AND AS MY MOM SAID MY GRANDMA DOROTHY. AND WAS A HUGE PART OF MY LIFE AND STILL VERY MUCH REMAIN SO LIKE I THINK ABOUT HER EVERY DAY PROBABLY BECAUSE IN THE LAST YEARS OF HER LIFE I SPOKE TO HER EVERY DAY. AND SHE STILL REALLY REMAINS MY NOR STAR I OFTEN THINK LIKE WHAT WOULD SHE ADVISED ME TO DO. AND WHAT WOULD YOU THINK WOULD BE THE RIGHT THING TO DO IN THIS MOMENT. ONE OF THE GIFTS THAT BOTH MY GRANDMOTHERS GAVE ME THOUGH WAS. KIND OF THE- EXPECTATION OF. THEM HAVING AN OPINION AND STANDING UP FOR MYSELF AND- I THOUGHT THAT SO CLEARLY. WHEN MY GRANDMA GINGER ASKED ME WHAT I WANTED FOR MY EIGHTH BIRTHDAY AND I TOLD HER I WANTED HER TO QUIT SMOKING. AND SHE DID. AND SHE SMOKED TWO PACKS OF CIGARETTES FOR DECADES. I THINK SHE WAS SO IMPRESSED THAT I HAD THE GUMPTION TO ASK FOR THAT AND THAT SHE HAD BEEN TALK SHE LOVE THE WORD GUMPTION AND SHE’S BEEN TALKING TO ME A LOT ABOUT LIKE WHY IT WAS SO IMPORTANT THE GIRLS OF GUMPTION THAT SHE THAT WHILE HACK LIKE I BETTER FOLLOW THROUGH. ON THIS AND JUST WHAT A GIFT THAT SHE- GAVE ME AM. AND I’M SO GRATEFUL BECAUSE IT CERTAINLY. AFTER SHE GOT BREAST CANCER PROBABLY HELP THROUGH. LIVE A LITTLE BIT LONGER. BECAUSE HER LUNGS BY THAT POINT HAD HAD REALLY LARGELY RECOVERED. SO I AM SO THANKFUL TO BOTH MY GRANDMOTHERS AND- BLACK THREE WE COULDN’T WRITTEN THIS BOOK AND NOT INCLUDED ON. THE JOY WE ALSO WANT PEOPLE TO THINK ABOUT THE GUTSY WOMEN IN THEIR LIVES. BECAUSE EVERY. PERSON HERE KNOWS AT LEAST ONE PROBABLY MORE THAN ONE FOR YOURSELVES AND STARTING FROM THE PERSONAL AND THEN GOING. TO THE HISTORICAL IT WAS A WAY OF US. WE HOPE TO IGNITING A CONVERSATION ABOUT THAT. AND YOU KNOW GUTSY WOMEN ALMOST ALWAYS GET A GREAT DEAL OPPOSITION. THERE IS STILL YOU KNOW EVEN THE TWENTY FIRST CENTURY FEELS THIS IS GREAT SOCIAL PROHIBITION TO WOMEN. STEPPING FORWARD SEEKING POWER TO WOMEN EXERCISING THEIR POWER I THINK ABOUT WHAT THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE CURRENTLY GOES THROUGH THE PUSH BACK. AND YOU WONDER IF SHE WOULD GET THE SAME PUSHBACK IF SHE WERE A MAN RIGHT YOU WANTED ALL TIME. YOU WROTE ABOUT A YOUNG WOMAN WHO IS EXPERIENCING THAT AND SHE’S STILL A CHILD. EARNINGS. GRETTA THUNBERG AND I LOVE THAT YOU INCLUDED HER HERE. ACTUALLY ONE OF MY FAVORITE ESSAYS IN THE BOOK TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ABOUT NOT ONLY IS STANDING UP FOR YOURSELF AS A YOUNG WOMAN. WHO’S FIGHTING FOR SOMETHING HUGE IMPORTANT IN DOING THAT DESPITE THE FACT THAT PEOPLE ARE I MEAN THE VICIOUSNESS OF THE ATTACKS AGAINST HER BEEN SOMETHING I MEAN YOU COULD PROBABLY WORTH. A READ A LITTLE IDEA WITH. A LITTLE BIT. AND SO DO YOU KNOW. WE INCLUDED GRETTA IN THE BOOK BEFORE SHE SAILED ACROSS THE OCEAN AND SPOKE AT THE U. AND BECAUSE WE WERE BOTH SO IMPRESSED WITH HER LONELY CAMPAIGN TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. TO TRY TO STOP THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE FRANKLY BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE FOR MANY PARTS OF THEWORLD IT WAS SHE STARTED OFF GOING TO HER. GOING ON HER OWN TO THE GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS AND STOCK HOME AND SHE WAS CLEARLY BY HERSELF AND NOBODY JOINDER AND THEN EVENTUALLY COUPLE OF KIDS JOINDER AND THEN THEN AS WE KNOW IT LED TO A GLOBAL EFFORT TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE THAT IN LISTED MILLIONS OF YOUNG PEOPLE. THERE WERE SEVERAL THINGS THAT. I THINK WE BOTH. MORE DRAWN TO WHEN IT CAME TO INCLUDING GRETTA FIRST THAT SHE WAS JUST ON APOLOGETICALLY. SIXTEEN YEAR OLD GIRL SHE DIDN’T. ATTEND TO BE ANYBODY ELSE BUT HERSELF AND- SHE. VERY QUICKLY TOLD PEOPLE THAT SHE WAS ARTISTIC SHE HAD A FORM OF. AUTISM ON THE **** BURGERS SPECTRUM AND SHE OWNED UP TO IT AND SHE WAS AGAIN FEARLESS AND ON APOLOGETIC. AND THEN AS WE WATCHED HER BE WILLING TO PUT HERSELF OUT THERE TO SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER AND IN GENDER. WILD SUPPORT GREAT ADULATION FROM THOSE WHO SAW WHAT SHE WAS TRYING TO DO AND BELIEVED IN HER AND THEN THE MOST NEGATIVE VICIOUS ATTACKS ON HER GIRLHOOD ON HER AUTISM ON. HOW SHE SPOKE AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT THE OTHER SIDE COULD THINK OF TO TRY TO DIMINISH HER IT JUST MADE US EVEN. MORE PROUD THAT WE’VE INCLUDED BUT I THINK THAT FOR BOTH OF US SHE WAS A REALLY EXAMPLE OFWHAT YOUNG WOMEN ARE DOING AROUND THE WORLD ON A LOT OF IMPORTANT ISSUES. AND ALSO THE NEED TO STAND UP FOR FAX. AND SCIENCE. AND THE KEY CHANCES SO. CONSISTENTLY AND PERSISTENTLY CLEAR THAT SHE’S NOT VOICING HER OPINIONS YOU SHE IS AMPLIFYING AND ELEVATING KIND OF WHAT THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF SCIENTISTS ARE TELLING US ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE AND WHAT THEY ARE KIND OF URGING AND EXHORTING US TO DO WHAT WE MUST MUST DO GEORGES SINCE AND WE’RE HERE TONIGHT I WANT TO MENTION TONY PERGOLA IN JUDY LONDON WHO ARE FROM BANCROFT BECAUSE ONE OF THE- WOMEN THAT WE WRITE ABOUT IN THE BOOK IS MARKER BANCROFT TO. KIND OF IN THE. IN A LATE MID NINETEEN CENTURY WHEN SHE WAS A TEACHER HERE IN IN PENNSYLVANIA BELIEVED THAT EVERY CHILD DESERVES. THE RIGHT TO EDUCATION AND EVERY CHILD COULD LEARN AND THAT WAS NOT THE PREVAILING VIEW AT THE TIME AND WHEN SHE SAID SHE WANTED TO START KIND OF HER OWN SCHOOL TO BE ABLE TO KIND OF BRING THAT PHILOSOPHY INTO THE WORLD THAT REGARDLESS OF ABILITY EVERY CHILD COULD LEARN. SHE WAS ALSO REALLY DIVIDED AND DENIGRATED AND TOLD LIKE WHY WOULD SHE BOTHER. I WOULD SHOULD BOTHER WITH THESE KIDS. AND SHE JUST WAS DOGGEDLY DETERMINED AND THE SCHOOL AN ORGANIZATION THAT SHE STARTED. STILL EXISTS TODAY AND AMONG ITS MANY KIND OF ACHIEVEMENTS AS ONE OF THE LARGEST SOURCES OF AMERICAN SPECIAL OLYMPIANS. I THINK IS THIRTY ONE. ONE OF THE THINGS I ENJOY THE MOST ABOUT THE BOOK IS IT’S SORT OF A CATALOG OF A LOT OF YOU KNOW MY HEROINE CEO SHIRLEY CHISHOLM PROBABLY BEING YOUR GROWING UP LIKE THE BIGGEST HERE IN MY HOUSEHOLD SHE’S PARK I NEED MY MOM’S BEEN. A BIT BIASED MAY JENNISON LIKE PEOPLE LIKE THAT BUT I LOVE THE FACT THAT YOU ALSO IN SOME PARTS OF THE BOOK COMBINE SOMEONE KNOWN WITH SOME WITH SOMEONE WHO IS LESS KNOWN PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW CLAUDETTE COLVIN BUT PEOPLE TEND NOT TO AND THEY TEND TO YOU KNOW NO ROSE APART EVERY KNOWS WHO WAS A PARK SAYS SHE DECIDED SHE WANTS IN THE BACK THE BASS BUT- THE FACT THAT CLAUDETTE COLVIN. WAS AT ANOTHER TEENAGER WHO DID IT FIRST I LOVE THAT YOU ALL INCLUDED HER SO I. THINK THAT CLAUDETTE COLVIN IS ONE OF THE GREAT. BALDINGER DOWNER SEAT. COULDN’T GET UP. SHE WAS ARRESTED SHE WAS DRAGGED OFF THE BUS SHE WAS HORRIFICALLY TREATED WHILE SHE WAS IN JAIL ALL HER FATHER AND THE LOCAL PASTOR HAD TO PLEAD AND WORK AND RAISE MONEY TO HELP GET HER OUT OF JAIL. SHE GETS OUT OF JAIL. PEOPLE TAYLOR SHE NEEDS TO BE QUIET AND SHE JUST SAYS NO ANSWER SHE BECAME ONE OF THE ORIGINAL PLAINTIFFS ONE OF THE FIVE ORIGINAL PLAINTIFFS IN BROWDER V. GALE WHICH- WAS THE RULING. ULTIMATELY BY DISTRICT COURT UPHELD BY THE SUPREME COURT THAT SAID NO MICHAEL BUS SEGREGATION IS A LEGAL ILLEGAL IN MONTGOMERY AND IT’S A LEGAL IN THE STATE OF ALABAMA. AND SO WHAT WE NOON ROSA PARKS HIS NAME REALLY JUSTLY WE SHOULD KNOW CLAUDETTE STEW SHE WAS FIFTEEN AND HER STORY IS PART OF WHAT PROPELLED. FINALLY. DESEGREGATING PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION IN ALABAMA. YOU INCLUDE SOME OF THE PEOPLE THAT. SOME I THINK IT BECOMES A MY FAVORITE PEOPLE THE YOUNG WOMEN OF THE PARKLAND STUDENTS WHO ARE SO BRAVE MEN WHO CAME FORWARD IN BECAME THE FACE. OF REALLY PROBABLY THE MOST SUCCESSFUL I THINK TO DATE DONE REFORM MOVEMENT REALLY SINCE NINETEEN NINETY FOUR WHEN I WAS ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN ACTUALLY SOMEHOW PASS THE CONGRESS. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THIS KIND OF ADVOCACY VERTICALLY SINCE YOU’VE SPENT SO MUCH TIME IN PUBLIC POLICY. PEOPLE TEND NOT TO THINK THAT THERE WILL BE ANYTHING ACTUALLY DONE THESE KIDS DON’T BELIEVE THAT. RIGHT. THE GUN VIOLENCE IS A HUGE ISSUE FOR BOTH CHELSEA IN ME AND WE WROTE ABOUT TWO GROUPS OF WOMEN AND I’LL SPEAK ABOUT THE OLDER GENERATION AND CHOSE TO SPEAK ABOUT THE YOUNGER WHICH IS TOTALLY APPROPRIATE I THINK AND- IS AS JOYCE SAID. ONE OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF ALL THESE WOMEN IN OUR BOOK DESPITE WHATEVER OBSTACLES THEY FACE STORE HOW BADLY THEY WERE TREATED IS OPTIMISM. THEY REALLY BELIEVE THAT SOMETHING WILL CHANGE AND THAT THEY’RE GOING TO PLAY A ROLE IN MAKING SURE THAT IT DOES. SO WE HIGHLIGHT WOMEN WHO’VE BEEN INVOLVED IN THE GUN VIOLENCE PREVENTION. EFFORTS FOR QUITE SOME TIME WOMEN LIKE SARAH BRADY WHOSE HUSBAND JAMES WAS. SO SEVERELY WOUNDED WHEN THERE WAS THE ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT AGAINST PRESIDENT REAGAN PARALYZED IN A WHEELCHAIR SARAH BRADY BECAME THE VOICE OF A GUN REFORM AND SHE- REALLY WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN GETTING THE BRADY BILL PASSED WHICH ALSO PASSED IN NINETEEN NINETY FOUR THAT. MY HUSBAND SIGNED. AND IT HAS CAP IT WAS SOMETHING LIKE TWO AND A HALF MILLION PEOPLE FROM GETTING GUNS YOU SHOULDN’T JUST IMAGINE THAT BECAUSE THEY’VE BEEN STOPPED AT THAT PROCESS. OR GABBY GIFFORDS WHO WAS THIS HERSELF THE VICTIM OF AN ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT. AND AFTER BEING SO PROFOUNDLY WOUNDED AND WORKING SO HARD TO COME BACK THROUGH PHYSICAL THERAPY AND SPEECH THERAPY SHE AND HER WONDERFUL HUSBAND MARK KELLY HAVE BEEN LEADING THE CHARGE FOR SENSIBLE GUN LEGISLATION AND- AND NOW BUT MARK HAS GREEN WHOSE LITTLE GIRL WAS MURDERED AT SANDY HOOK. AND WHO TALKS ABOUT THE BURDENS AND THE PAIN THAT FAMILY MEMBERS FEEL AND LUCY MAKE BATH WHOSE SON JORDAN WAS KILLED. FOR PLAYING MUSIC TOO LOUD IN HIS CAR AND THE MAN DID GO TO PRISON THANKFULLY. BUT LUCY DESPITE BEING DEVASTATED BY THE TERRIBLE MURDER OF HER SON. SAID HE HAD TO DO SOMETHING AND SHE BECAME DONE PREVENTION ACTIVISTS AND NOW SHE’S A. MEMBER OF CONGRESS SO WE TRY TO TALK ABOUT. IN A WOMEN WHO HAVE BEEN ON THE FRONT LINES AND HAVE OFTEN TAKEN THEIR OWN TRAGEDIES AND TRIED TO. CONVINCE PEOPLE THAT SOMETHING HAD TO BE DONE BUT THIS GROUP OF YOUNG PEOPLE LIKE WHAT JOY WAS TALKING ABOUT. I REALLY A NEW PHENOMENON THEY THEY CAME OUT OF PARK WHEN THEY CAME OUT OF OTHER GUN RELATED TRAGEDIES AND THEYARE ABSOLUTELY DETERMINED THATIT’S GOING TO BE A VOTING ISSUE AND THAT PEOPLE ARE GOING TO GET. THE CHANGES THAT THEY ARE SEEKING TO TRY TO SAVE LIVES. AND YOU WE HIGHLIGHT SIXTY YOUNG WOMEN ACTIVISTS IS IT WHO E NOW THAT HAS THE STRENGTH TO STAND UP REALLY FOR THE CONSTITUTION GIVEN THE STATE OF AFFAIRS IN SIXTEEN HUNDRED PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE. HOW APPROPRIATE THAT WE WOULD TALK ABOUT A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS SUCH AS THE ONE WE ARE IN I. HERE AT THE CONSTITUTION CENTER AND- WHEN I THINK JEFFREY ROSEN FOR HIS LEADERSHIP AND FOR WHAT THIS CENTER REALLY MEANS IT’S A LIVING BREATHING REMINDER OF HOW THE CONSTITUTION WAS CREATED. AND HOW WE HAVE. NOT ONLY TRIED TO CHANGE IT IN WAYS THAT FURTHERED THE UNDERLYING IDEALS OF OUR COUNTRY BUT ALSO TRY TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS OUR FOUNDERS WERE TEACHING US WHEN WE- LOOK AT IT AND THERE IS A REASON THERE IS A SECTION ON IMPEACHMENT IN THE CONSTITUTION. AND AS CHOICE SAD I HAD THE RATHER UNUSUAL EXPERIENCE OF BEING ON THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY STAFF BACK IN NINETEEN SEVENTY FOUR INVESTIGATING RICHARD NIXON AND- ONE OF MY ONE OF MY ASSIGNMENTS OF THE YOUNG LAWYER WAS TOO RIGHT THE MEMO THAT WAS LATER PUBLISHED I’M- WITH A FEW OTHER OF MY COLLEAGUES. ABOUT WHAT IS A HIGH CRIME AND MISDEMEANOR AND. EARLY THE FOUNDERS SAID TO THEMSELVES LOOK. WE’RE GONNA HAVE A LECTURE ENDS AND THAT WILL REPRESENT WE HOPE THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE. IN BETWEEN ELECTIONS IF WE HAVE A LEADER WHO IS ABUSING POWER OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE TREATING THE REST OF THE GOVERNMENT WITH CONTEMPT. WE HAVE TO HAVE A REMEDY AND SO IMPEACHMENT. ROOTED IN SORT OF ANGLO SAXON LAW GOING BACK. TO THE ENGLISH BECAME THE REMEDY THAT THE FOUNDERS PUT INTO OUR CONSTITUTION NOW WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT BECAUSE IF YOU GO BACK AND YOU READ. SOME OF THE EARLY DEBATES AND SOME OF THE WRITINGS AROUND THE CONSTITUTION. WHAT WAS ONE THING THEY WERE PARTICULARLY WORRIED ABOUT THEY WERE WORRIED ABOUT FOREIGN INTERFERENCE IN THE GOVERNMENT. THEY WERE WORRIED THAT FOREIGN POWERS WOULD TRY TO SUBVERT THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES THROUGH INFLUENCING. ELECTED LEADERS OR APPOINTED LEADERS IT WAS A VERY REAL CONCERN TO OUR FOUNDERS. AND SO WE ARE NOW AT THE POINT WHERE. WE HAVE AN IMPEACHMENT ENQUIRING BEGINNING EVIDENCE IS BEING PRESENTED AND BEING EVALUATED BY AND THEN THE- HOUSE WILL HAVE TO MAKE A DECISION AS TO WHETHER OR NOT. THERE IS ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT PERSONALLY I THINK THAT THERE’S A REALLY GOOD CASE THAT THERE IS ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT. AND I THINK IT’S I THINK IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT AS JOY WAS ASKING. TO LOOK AT THE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOW ON THE LEADING EDGE OF THIS MOMENTOUS HISTORIC MOMENT AND THE PERSON WHO’S FURTHEST OUT IS THE SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI WHO IS A VERY GUTSY WOMAN AND. AND SHE HAS HAS REALLY TRIED VERY HARD TO HANDLE THIS AND IN WITH THE SERIOUSNESS AND DELIVERED TO VENICE THAT IT REQUIRES. BUT WHAT IS PARTICULARLY MISSING ARE ANY PEOPLE IN THE OPPOSITE PARTY. WHO ARE SPEAKING UP BECAUSE BACK IN NINETEEN SEVENTY FOUR REPUBLICAN MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES WHO SERVED ON THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE VOTED FOR THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT. REPUBLICAN SENATORS AFTER THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE VOTE WENT TO SEE RICHARD NIXON AND SAID THE- YOU SHOULD RESIGN FOR THE GOOD OF THE COUNTRY THEY PUT COUNTRY OVER PARTY WE WRITE ABOUT A WOMAN WHO DOES THAT IN OUR BOOK MARGARET CHASE SMITH THE REPUBLICAN SENATOR FROM MAINE. WHO WAS THE FIRST MEMBER OF HER PARTY TO TAKE ON JOSEPH MCCARTHY. AND SHEGAVE A STUNNING SPEECH ON THE FLOOR OF THE SENATE. SPEAKING ABOUT. HOW IMPORTANT IT WAS TO NOT ONLY TAKE HIM ON FOR THE GOOD THREE BUT FOR THE GOOD OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. AND IF YOU GO BACK YOU READ THAT AND WE QUOTE FROM IT IN THE BOOK. YOU HAVE TO ASK YOURSELF. WE’RE IS ANYBODY. FROM THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WILLING TO BE THE MARGARET CHASE SMITH YOU KNOW THERE’S ONE OBVIOUS CANDIDATE WHO HAPPENS TO BE A WOMAN REPUBLICAN SENATOR FROM MAINE WHO COULD TAKE ON THAT ROLE. BUT THERE ARE OTHERS AS WELL AND SO IT IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT AT THIS MOMENT. FOR CITIZENS TO EDUCATE THEMSELVES. TO LEARN ABOUT WHAT IMPEACHMENT IS AND WHAT IT ISN’T TO UNDERSTAND THE REASON THE FOUNDERS PUT IT IN THE DOCUMENT TO BEGIN WITH AND TO FOLLOW THE EVIDENCE BECAUSE WE’RE GETTING MORE AND MORE EVIDENCE ALL THE TIME ABOUT ABUSE OF POWER ABOUT OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE AND ABOUT CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS AND THIS ASSAULT ON. OUR RULE OF LAW AND OUR CHECKS AND BALANCES AMONG THE THREE BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT IS A SERIOUS THREAT TO OUR DEMOCRACY AND TO OUR CONSTITUTION. THANK YOU. THE CONSTITUTIONAL QUESTION JUST FOR A MOMENT ANOTHER YOU KNOW THE ISSUE THAT HAS COME FROM TIME TO TIME AND I HAVE SOME GREAT WOMEN LAWYER FRIENDS OF CONSTITUTIONAL IS TO WORRY A BIT ABOUT THE PROCESS OF IT. BUT THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT COMES UP FROM TIME TO TIME I KNOW IT’S GONNA FOR IN THE IDEA OF GOING BACK AND LOOKING AT THE CONSTITUTION PUTTING AN EXPLICIT PROTECTION FOR WOMEN. IT THE RISK OF THAT OF COURSE IF YOU OPEN UP THE CONSTITUTION TO A CONVENTION ALL SORTSOF THINGS THAT YOU MIGHT NOT WANT MIGHT WIND UP ALSO DEBATED MIND UP IN THERE. DO YOU THINK JUST LOOKING AT IT FROM YOUR POINT OF VIEW IS AT RISK FOR THAT I THINK IT’S THIRTY THREE OR THIRTY FOUR STATES HAVE ALREADY RATIFIED. WELL YOU KNOW THERE’S TWO WAYS TO AMEND THE CONSTITUTION ONE THROUGH CONVENTION AND ONE THROUGH THE PROCESS THAT THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT WAS FOLLOWING WHICH IS TO HAVE. STATES VOTE IN FAVOR OF IT AND YOU’RE RIGHT WE’RE WE’RE VERY CLOSE IN THE NUMBER OF STATES THAT ARE NEEDED TO ADD THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT HE WOULDN’T HAVE TO GO THE CONVENTION ROUTE WHICH I DO THINK GIVEN THE- PASSIONS OF OUR TIME WOULD BE A VERY. DIFFICULT PROCESS TO SAY THE LEAST WELL RIGHT NOW WE’RE TRYING TO DO IS DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION WE’VE GOT AND TRY TO MAKE SURE THAT IT’S PRINCIPLES ARE. RESPECTED SO I DO THINK THAT THERE COULD BE THERE WAS A HOPE THAT VIRGINIA WOULD HAVE PASSED IT THAT WAS ONE OF THE STATES THAT TO PEOPLE WERE. HOPING FOR IT MAY BE THAT AFTER THIS. NEXT ELECTION BECAUSE VIRGINIA LEX THEIR STATE LEGISLATURE IN THE OFF YEAR SO THEY’RE ACTUALLY HAVING AN ELECTION IN NOVEMBER THERE MIGHT BE ENOUGH VOES TO REVISIT IT AND I KNOW THAT THE PEOPLE WHO ARE ADVOCATING FOR IT IN VIRGINIA INTEND TO DO THAT. SO IT. IS UNFINISHED BUSINESS BECAUSE PART OF WE WRITE ABOUT THE SUFFRAGE MOVEMENT AND AT AND YOU KNOW THERE’S A- REALLY IMPORTANT STORY TO BE TALKED ABOUT AND DISCUSSED. AND TAUGHT IN SCHOOLS BECAUSE NEXT YEAR IS THE HOW. DELIVERS THREE OF WOMEN IN THE UNITED STATES GETTING THE RIGHT TO VOTE. AND IT WAS SO HARD AND IT TOOK SO LONG AND EVEN ONCE IT WAS ACHIEVED. BLACK WOMEN NATIVE AMERICAN WOMEN LATINO WOMEN WERE. IS IN THEIR OWN PARTY FOR OFTEN FOR OFF WITH PRESIDENT TRUD THE TWITTER WAR WITH THE MINNEAPOLIS MAYOR TALKING ABOUT THE UPCOMING RALLY THAT’S GOING TO BE HAPPENING ON THURSDAY WELL LAWYERS CONTROVERSY THERE BECAUSE THE CITY MINNEAPOLIS IS TRYING TO CHARGE THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR SECURITY FEES. AND PRESIDENT HAS BEEN GOING BACK AND FORTH WITH THE MAYOR OF MINNEAPOLIS AND NOW THERE’S A LIVE NEWS CONFERENCE HAPPENING TO TALK ABOUT THIS VIEW THE LET’S LISTEN RIGHT HERE ON NEWS NOW. HE A SAFE AND PEACEFUL WEEK IN OUR CITY. SO WHETHER YOU ARE ATTENDING THE EVENT IN SUPPORT FOR PROTESTING IN OPPOSITION WE WILL DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO ENSURE YOUR SAFETY. YOUR SAFETY IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY. IT IS OUR TOP PRIORITY AND WE TAKE THAT CHARGE VERY SERIOUSLY. IN TURN I HAVE AN ASK OF ALL OF YOU. WHETHER YOU’RE VISITING OR YOU LIVE HERE. I ASK THAT YOU NOT LOSE SIGHT OF THE FACT THAT YOU ARE HERE WITH NEIGHBORS. YOU ARE HERE ALONG SIDE MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS. FATHERS AND SONS. PEOPLE ALL EMBRACING THE MOST FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS THAT ARE PROTECTED UNDER OUR CONSTITUTION. IF YOU SEE CRUELTY CALL IT OUT IN ANSWER IT WITH KINDNESS IF YOU SEE HATE. COUNTER WITH LOVE AND ABOVE ALL PLEASE JOIN US IN KEEPING THE PEACE ON THURSDAY. WE WILL SHOW WITH RACING CLARITY THAT MINNEAPOLIS IS A WORLD CLASS CITY AND WE WILL NOT TAKE THE BAIT. WE WILL NOT BE BAITED BY ANY ONE PERSON OR AN UGLY LINE FROM A MEANDERING SPEECH WE ARE BIGGER THAN THAT AND WE MUST RISE ABOVE. THANK YOU AND OPEN IT TO QUESTIONS. WOULD LIKE TO HAVE ON THE SERVER. IN RESPONSE. WHAT DO YOU CAN RESPOND THAT WAY WAS THERE ANYTHING POLITICAL IN NATURE. NO IT IT’S NOT EXTORTION TO EXPECT THAT SOMEBODY PAY THEIR BILLS EVEN WHEN THEY REALLY DON’T WANT TO PAY THEIR BILLS IT IS MY JOB TO WATCH OUT FOR THE TAXPAYERS OF THE CITY OF MINNEAPOLIS AND- I SEE THAT’S SOMETHING THAT THE PRESIDENT SHOULD BE DOING AS WELL. SO WE’VE ASKED THAT YOU KNOW EIGHTY E. G. ABIDE BY THE CONTRACT THAT WE HAVE WITH THEM INSURING THAT ASSOCIATED COSTS OF SIGNIFICANT EVENTS LIKE THIS ONE ARE COVERED IN AND WE STAND BY THAT. THE PRESIDENT SAYS. THE MOMS THAT YOU’RE TRYING TO CHARGE. IS MUCH HIGHER THAN WHAT PRESIDENT OBAMA. CAME WORD AS FAR AS WHAT THE COST WAS BACK IN TWO THOUSAND NINE IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEA OF THE COMPARISON OF WAR. IS YOU MAKE A VALID ONE THIS SEEMS TO. BE AIMED AT HIM. I’M NOT SURE ABOUT THE COMPARISON OF THE TWO BUT THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES BETWEEN WHAT HPPENED IN TWO THOUSAND NINE. WITH OBAMA AND WHAT’S HAPPENING TODAY. AT THE FIRST BIG DIFFERENCE IS THAT PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA WAS COMING HERE ON BEHALF OF THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. NOT AS A CAMPAIGN EVENT IS COMING HERE TO CHAMPION A SPECIFIC POLICY AND IN THAT CASE. IT WAS HEALTHCARE HERE PRESIDENT TRUMP IS COMING TO MINNEAPOLIS IS A CAMPAIGN RALLY. SECOND THERE ARE JUST BIG DIFFERENCES BETWEEN TWO THOUSAND NINE AND TWO THOUSAND NINETEEN WE HANDLE PUBLIC SAFETY OF LARGE SCALE EVENTS DIFFERENTLY TEN YEARS LATER. IT TAKE THE SUPERBOWL FOR CONTEXT THAT WAS SIX MILLION DOLLARS IS WHAT WE WERE LOOKING AT TAKE THE NC DOUBLE A FINAL FOUR FOR CONTACTS THAT WAS ONE POINT FIVE MILLION DOLLARS. RIGHT NOW WE’RE LOOKING AT FIVE HUNDRED FORTY THOUSAND DOLLARS IN TOTAL THAT’S FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR ADDITIONAL PUBLIC SAFETY COST AND SPECIFICALLY. OVER TIME FROM THE POLICE AN ADDITIONAL HUNDRED FORTY THOUSAND THROUGH REGULATORY SERVICES AND PUBLIC WORKS FOR THINGS LIKE JERSEY BARRIERS AND STREET CLOSURES SO WHEN YOU LOOK AT IN CONTEXT THIS IS REASONABLE. AND IT’S MY JOB TO LOOK OUT FOR THE TAXPAYERS OF MINNEAPOLIS AND WE’RE DOING JUST THAT. WE’LL THAT HELP WITH THAT. THE PROBLEM. AS SOMETHING CHANGE. AND WE’LL ALL. THE BILL. I CAN’T SPEAK TO WHAT HAPPENED IN INSTANCES PRIOR TO MY ADMINISTRATION NOR BY SEEN THE COST BREAKDOWN OF PREVIOUS EVENTS I WHAT I WILL SAY IS THAT UNDER THE A SIGNIFICANT EVENTS THAT WE’VE HAD IN MINNEAPOLIS AND I’LL ADD THAT WE’VE DONE EXCEEDINGLY WELL WE FOUND WAYS TO COVER SIGNIFICANT PORTIONS OF THE COST I THINK IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING BUT I’LL SAY IT ANYWAY THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT EXPENSES ASSOCIATED WITH A CAMPAIGN RALLY FROM DONALD TRUMP. AND AS I SAID IT’S MY JOB TO LOOK OUT FOR THE TAXPAYERS OF THE CITY OF MINNEAPOLIS AND THAT’S NOT A COST WORKED. AT THE WORD IS GONNA BEAR. THE BILL IS IN THIS. ELECTION CYCLE. WATCHES LIKE LEADING DEMOCRATIC COMES HERE WILL BABY BILL. IS NOT A POLITICAL DECISION. THIS IS THIS IS A DECISION TO AGAIN. ABIDE BY THE CONTRACT THAT WE ALREADY HAVE WITH A G. ALL AT WE DON’T HAVE A CONTRACT. WITH THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN. WE HAVE A CONTRACT WITH A E. G. WHICH IS OUR BOOKING AGENT. AND THE BOOKING AGENT AG HAS A CONTRACT WITH THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND SO. AS TO WHETHER AND HOW TO PROCEED. THAT IS THE PRIVATE OF. OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN AG IN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN. ART WELL I DON’T HAVE THE EXACTLANGUAGE RIGHT HERE IN FRONT OF ME BUT STATES THAT WE ARE NOT TO COVER ASSOCIATED COSTS AND WE CAN GET YOU THE SPECIFIC LANGUAGE. A LET ME BE CLEAR. OUR POLICE OFFICERS THAT ARE WORKING. ON DUTY WILL BE WEARING THE MINNEAPOLIS POLICE DEPARTMENT UNIFORM. NOW THERE IS A PROPOSAL THAT YOU’VE HEARD ABOUT THAT ARE CHIEF ARE DANDO HAS BEEN CHAMPIONING AND MOVING FORWARD FOR OVER A YEAR. THAT POLICY IT SAYS THIS IT SAYS THAT OUR MINNEAPOLIS POLICE OFFICERS WHILE THEY ARE WORKING ARE TO USE THE MINNEAPOLIS POLICE UNIFORMS HOWEVER THEY CAN’T USE THE POLICE UNIFORM WHEN THEY’RE ENGAGING IN OUR POLITICAL EVENTS. OR OTHERWISE THEY ARE CERTAINLY FREE TO EXPRESS THEIR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS IN ANY WAY THAT THEY SEE FIT BUT THAT THOSE EXPRESSIONS SHOULD BE DONE OFF DUTY NOW TELL YOU WHY THIS IS SO IMPORTANT THE MINNEAPOLIS NOT LET ME FINISH MY STATEMENT. YOU KNOW O MINNEAPOLIS POLICE DEPARTMENT IS NEITHER A REPUBLICAN NOR A DEMOCRAT ENTITY IT IS NON IDEOLOGICAL NOR IS IT PARTS AND IT IS A NEUTRAL ENTITY THAT IS CHARGED WITH ENSURING THE PUBLIC SAFETY OF EVERY SINGLE RESIDENT IN THE CITY OF MINNEAPOLIS THAT’S NOT A PARTISAN DECISION. THAT’S A DECISION FOR GOOD PUBLIC SAFETY PERIOD. THERE HAVE BEEN PREVIOUS YEARS WERE OFTEN. AND BEHIND VIDEO DOES NOT HUNDREDS OF OFFICERS. LONG TWENTY THIRTEEN THE THING IS A LITTLE. MY ADMINISTRATION FOR THE RECORD WAS ELECTED IN TWENTY SEVENTEEN WE TOOK OFFICE IN TWENTY EIGHTEEN SO I CAN’T SPEAK TO WHAT HAPPENED PREVIOUSLY BUT I CAN SAY THAT THIS POLICY WILL BE APPLIED UNIFORMLY THROUGHOUT NO PUN INTENDED IT’LL BE APPLIED EXCUSE ME IT’LL BE APPLIED FOR DEMOCRATS AS WELL AS APPLIED FOR REPUBLICANS AGAIN OUR MANY APPLES POLICE DEPARTMENT IS NONPARTISAN NOR DOES IT IDEOLOGICAL AND I STAND BY THE CHIEF WITH THAT POLICY AND BY THE WAY. THIS IS A POLICY THERE’S BEEN ADOPTED BY PRETTY MUCH EVERY SINGLE OTHER SIGNIFICANT CITY THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY NOW THIS IS NO EXCEPTION NEXT QUESTION. YOU KNOW THE IT WILL I’M SORRY REPEAT THE QUESTION ONE MORE TIME FOR ME. I THINK THE UNDERLYING QUESTION IS PROBABLY A LEGAL ONE WHICH IS TO DETERMINE AGAIN WHAT IS OPERATING WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF. OUR GOVERNMENTAL UNIT AND OUR RESPONSIBILITIES AS PUBLIC SERVANTS. OF COURSE THEN IN THOSE CASES YES AN OFFICER CAN AND CAN WEAR THE UNIFORMS. ARE HOWEVER IN SUPPORTING THEIR- CANDIDATES. IN SUPPORTING THEIR OWN INDIVIDUAL PUBLIC YOU VIEWS THEY ARE ENTIRELY ABLE TO DO SO BUT THEY SHOULD NOT BE DOING IT WHILE WEARING. THE UNIFORM WITH A BADGE OF OUR MINNEAPOLIS POLICE DEPARTMENT WHICH IS A NEUTRAL ENTITY . IT’LL BE APPLIED EVENLY AND FAIRLY YES. WITHOUT WHY. THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE CITY OF ROCHESTER IN THE CITY OF MINNEAPOLIS NOTHING AGAINST THE CITY OF ROCHESTER I LOVE VISITING THERE BUT YES THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES AND WITH THAT IS THE REQUIREMENT THAT I BELIEVE WE SHOULD HAVE BOTH ADDITIONAL PUBLIC SAFETY AND IT IT FOLLOWS ADDITIONAL COSTS I DON’T KNOW THE EXACT SIZE THE POPULATION OF HE CITY OF THE CITY OF ROCHESTER BUT THE CITY OF MINNEAPOLIS IS LOOKING AT FOUR HUNDRED THIRTY THOUSAND PEOPLE AND IF YOU BEAR OUT THE COST BOTH OF OUR RESIDENTS AS WELL AS ADDITIONAL BUSINESS AND COMMERCIAL COMPONENT THAT WE HAVE DOWNTOWN ON A DAILY BASIS. THE LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT COME TO MINNEAPOLIS FROM AROUND THE ENTIRE STATE TO LIVE AND WORK YES THE ADDITIONAL COST IS THERE IS NECESSARY AND IF YOU LOOK AT IT IN THE CONTEXT OF THE SUPERBOWL SIX MILLION DOLLARS AND THE FINAL FOUR ONE POINT FIVE MILLION DOLLARS FIVE HUNDRED FORTY THOUSAND DOLLARS IS NOT. OUT OF WHAT WE WOULD EXPECT. BREAK DOWN. WE WILL FIGHT TO FINANCE FORTY THOUSAND DOLLARS WE- YEAH YEAH. YEAH WE CAN GET YOU A BREAK DOWN OF THE COSTS BUT THE BASICS ARE FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS ARE SPECIFICALLY FOR MPD AND OVER TIME EXPENSES FROM OUR POLICE OFFICERS I WHICH IS SOMETHING THAT I WOULD HOPE THAT DONALD TRUMP WILL. WOULD COULD YOU KNOW WOULD BE WILLING TO HELP AND SUPPORT AND THE REMAINING HUNDRED FORTY THOUSAND DOLLARS IS A COMBINATION OF PUBLIC WORKS THINGS LIKE JERSEY BARRIERS AND REGULATORY SERVICES THINGS LIKE STREET CLOSURES. YEP. AND I’M. YEAH I’M I’M I’M NOT ONE THAT THAT GETS YOU KNOW OVERLY EXCITED ABOUT TWITTER BACK AND FORTH YOU KNOW IS I WOKE UP THIS MORNING TO A LITTLE BIT OF A SURPRISE WHICH IS THAT THE PRESENT UNITED STATES WAS TWEETING ABOUT OUR CITY AND ME AS THE MAYOR AND YOU KNOW I WAKE UP EVERY SINGLE MORNING WITH NOT A LOT OF TIME ON MY HANDS BECAUSE I’M DOING THINGS LIKE FILLING POTHOLES AND MAKING SURE THAT OUR CITY HAS ENOUGH AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND I DON’T HAVE TIME. WITH THE CITY OF FOUR HUNDRED THIRTY THOUSAND PEOPLE TO BE TWEETING GARBAGE OUT SO IT’S KIND OF SURPRISING WHEN THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES A COUNTRY WITH THREE HUNDRED TWENTY SEVEN MILLION PEOPLE IS HAS THE TIME TO DO THIS THEMSELVES I DON’T KNOW WHERE A GUY GETS THE TIME BUT I CERTAINLY DON’T HAVE. YEAH COMMENTS ABOUT. PEOPLE. TRY TO DISRUPT THE FIRE DEPARTMENT A HIGHWAY HOW WILL. WELL I HAVE HAD NUMEROUS CONVERSATIONS WITH OUR POLICE CHIEF AND OBVIOUSLY WE HAVE JURISDICTION OVER THINGS WITHIN THE CITY OF MINNEAPOLIS AND I MADE VERY CLEAR THAT WE ARE GOING TO BE ENSURING THE SAFETY OF EVERY SINGLE INDIVIDUAL AND THAT’S WHETHER YOU ARE PRO TESTING IN OPPOSITION OR TENDING AND SUPPORT. US IT IS A PRIORITY OF US TO ENSURE THAT EVERYONE IS SAFE AND SO. WE WERE LISTENING TO THE MINNEAPOLIS MAYOR OF THEIR IT’S GOING TO BE A KIND OF BACK AND FORTH I THINK UNTIL THURSDAYS AT BIGGER RALLY THERE PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS HE AT SEVENTY TWO THOUSAND REQUESTS FROM PEOPLE THE TRY TO FILL THAT ARENA THAT CAN FIT ABOUT NINETEEN THOUSAND AT THE TARGET CENTER IN MINNEAPOLIS SO WE WILL SEE AND COVER OF THAT RALLY HERE FOR YEAH IAN FULL.
