make up your own mind. w.'s. for minds. this is g.w. news live from berlin moscow recalls its have basso there to the us after remarks by joe biden inflame tensions over at a record you think is a killer. for doing so what price must approaching the pay roll you'll see shortly . also coming up in tanzania as president dies after weeks of absence from public
1:01 pm
life the vice president says he died of heart failure but the main opposition leader says it was cold and. with a pandemic her strong belief on the shelf alone among european nations confronted with an unknown threat. returns to one of europe's 1st coronavirus epicenters in back of all italy to hear how locals have dealt with their collective cope with trauma. i'm sorry so much gone that's got to have you with us joe biden is facing what could be the 1st major diplomatic crisis of his presidency moscow has recalled its ambassador to the u.s. for consultations after biden confirmed that he thought russian president putin was a killer the u.s. president was speaking in an interview with a.b.c. news he also promised to hold lattimer putin accountable for meddling in the u.s.
1:02 pm
election. director of national to this was the interview that galvanized 2 huge nations the u.s. and russia when in an exclusive interview with a.b.c. news. george stephanopoulos asked president joe biden so you know vladimir putin you think he's a killer. so what price must he pay the price is going to pay well you'll see shortly the interview comes as the united states is thought to be preparing new sanctions against russia for its meddling in the election at an earlier meeting biden made a point of a mark to putin you said no he doesn't have a soul or i did say to him yes and to and his response was rather stand one i wouldn't a wise guy i was alone with him in his office that's how it came about it was when president bush had said i looked at his eyes and saw a soul i said look through our eyes and i don't think you have a soul we understand each other it's unclear what kind of a response moscow will have but no doubt u.s. russia relations have seldom been this low. and when it is standing by for us
1:03 pm
in moscow with the latest hi emily we've heard that president putin has now been speaking tell us what he's been saying well president putin kind of took the high road today 1st he wished joe biden health and then he said that essentially you know it's common that other people see things in their counterpart that they actually have in themselves so essentially he reflected that accusation that we heard from joe biden back at him and said that joe biden was essentially the pot calling the kettle black. he also though said that russia would be willing to work with the u.s. as far as that relationship going forward benefits russia's interests
1:04 pm
what about emily these these accusations of election interference that we saw in that u.s. intelligence report has that been addressed. well let me hear putin it seems didn't address those accusations he only addressed the personal insult that was leveled at him and the relations over all but yesterday we heard a denial from the kremlin spokesperson to meet you because quote he said that the report that the u.s. had released was baseless and wrong and unsubstantiated he questioned the quality of that report but really here in russia the big news has been that statement by biden calling putin a killer various politicians have been coming out calling it hysterical unpresidential we saw the foreign minister recall being the russian ambassador to the u.s. for consultations on the future of relations between the 2 countries one politician said that this really is a red line and the next step would be
1:05 pm
a diplomatic. severing of diplomatic ties so despite the fact that we saw the president the president himself today putin kind of laughing this off taking the high road i think this is a red line for the kremlin this personal insults particularly because this is a country where essentially putin is almost untouchable on the political landscape usually even his critics kind of insult the kremlin more generally or the government more generally criticize that but don't criticize putin himself so only if this is a red line what do you think this means for the ties between the u.s. and russia going forward. well look i think the expectations on the russian side of this new biden administration were already pretty low from the beginning but i do think that they did expect some sort of bare minimum you know bare bones relations on the key issues for example on nuclear arms
1:06 pm
control on the iran nuclear deal and it does seem. that putin today has expressed some readiness to go forward with that to keep relations going as far as as he said russian interests that is in russia's interest but i do think this personal insult is certainly a bad basis especially for a president who really values i think personal relations between the leaders that he is meeting with and when it comes to deploy not diplomatic relationships between russia and other countries. sure when reporting for us from moscow thank you. let's get a round about some other headlines several allies of jailed russian opposition figure alexina valmiki were on trial today including his press secretary and the head of his moscow office as well as 2 members of the band pussy riot several of
1:07 pm
his allies were detained in january after on authorised anti kremlin protests according to russian media their house arrest has been extended by 3 months. turkey's pro kurdish h d p party is fighting for its political survival after a prosecutor asked the top court to shut it down the party is accused of having ties to the outlawed militant group the h.t.t.p. says the case is part of a long campaign to stifle opposition the president are the ones government. and germany has recorded its largest rise of daily coronavirus cases in 2 months more than 17000 new infections have been confirmed in the last 24 hour period the rise comes after an easing of restrictions in recent weeks and the spread of more transmissible variance. an independent report published by the catholic church today has uncovered hundreds of allegations of child sexual abuse in germany's largest diocese in cologne the study presented by the church mandated lawyer found
1:08 pm
more than 300 victims between 19752018 more than half were children under the age of 14 the investigation cleared colognes archbishop. of breach of duty he's been under pressure to resign amid accusations that he hushed up the allegations and over his refusal to publish and mitchell report that he himself commissioned. a we'll get more details on that in a moment but 1st we meet a victim who has spent years seeking justice. good. nation i remember sitting in a cell in the bathroom area next to the sleeping quarters overlooking the courtyard lick of of the enclosed i was crying to myself and calling from my mother or i was just 11. i kept crying i can't anyone hear me. you're my. guy now carl how cool was a boarder at a catholic school where
1:09 pm
a priest abused him for years how his still haunted by terrible memories several years ago he felt so overwhelmed that he tried to kill himself it was only later that he realized that he wasn't alone what had happened to him had happened to others but the church state silent. he took 2 on. the list of the 2 don't start one i am sick church is an institution that speaks and acts from a highly moral standpoint. meting wrongdoing like this is very difficult anyone can see that. but our accusation is that the burden of the church silence or falls on the victims. these are fresh of course and but often and not. your for. how could i and other survivors to cope earlier this year when the cologne archdiocese announced that it would publish
1:10 pm
a report naming those responsible for abuse but things turned out differently the archdiocese changed its mind it told the victims that the report was unreliable and poorly done survivors felt browbeaten into accepting that the finding stay secret door and. they needed us as a kind of seal of approval to justify this decision to suppress the results these especially those who are still good working for their g.p.s. and no one from the archdiocese wanted to go on camera to comment meanwhile feel stronger ties all over again the suffering both physically and emotionally but often avoid annoyed or not mention the victims have been exploited once again people who were damaged in the past by priests have been damaged again to protect the institution or when i finally understood what was going on all the crimes that
1:11 pm
happened thanks then came back to me king. to fort i must talk to scene one down much focus says that he's lost his faith and the church once and for all and we can speak to our religious affairs correspondent martin got for more on the story hi martin what more was revealed in this new report. well there were a couple of striking facts i mean the brunt of the accusations fall in about 300 terry or 300 perpetrators but actually about one 3rd of those who are not clergy perpetrators they're people that were associated with the church and were in the care of children but were not actually clergy so the reason weighs interesting is because it actually extends you know with the essentially the cover of these conspiracy i mean quite clearly this what we are actually dealing with beyond sort
1:12 pm
of his media its base of the clergy and people that actually have authority within that institution and the effect that he's important to keep in mind is. this thing actually did not really stop around the time of when the scandal began or wood in became public but in fact up until 2018 you know the rate of the rate of things since actually kept creeping up what about the archbishop cardinal vokey here because we know he's been under fire for the way he handled this affair in the past so what does this report say about his involvement and how is he reacting. well the report does not really blame him so that's not placed there rick blame on him but to some degree this opens more question studied closes because obviously they should know is particularly in relation to the fact that he did so bristow 1st reported is what he 6 i believe that was being that was being
1:13 pm
you know held one of the bigger questions i think on the table is what happens with the 1st report and i think it's an everybody seems to this particularly as we continue to read and see what comes out of this report to actually gain access to the 1st reports understand exactly what the full range of like you say chanson what the full range of investigations who are coming back to cardinal does that mean that he is innocent. well i think that you know it's not something that we can say it's quite certain that according to this investigation he's not guilty of sexual abuse and he's not guilty of having covered up or being you know of the religion of duty that is to say he did not take charge of thing he was supposed to do but i think that this is such a broad sort of set of see to it of and it actually includes so many layers of political responsibility beyond you know the specific actions the question is
1:14 pm
essentially possible impossible to answer from a moral point of view from a from my greenall point of view is quite clear that there are no recent immediately to consider him guilty right now if we take a step back here is this scandal mean for the catholic church on a whole. i think that you know there are 2 things that are really quite obvious to 1st one is that the church cannot police itself. and i think that the most remarkable part of this of this report and both things are really just absolutely horrific that the one that really strikes me is that there was a spike in cases that began around 2004 and went on until 2018 and this is right in the middle of time the media and public attention is directly focused on the church and its handling not only of sexual abuse but the way that he's actually treating children under its 2 tillage as these thing is moving on it's quite clear that the church did absolutely nothing at least the church in gone and this thing continued
1:15 pm
to move on as if nothing were happening so to the extent that case is going to need to grow when this is absolutely inexcusable the 2nd part of this is that we are no longer talking about justice for the victims they think this is clearly a very important part but what we're talking about now is protecting citizens ok from a church in some degree wasn't quite quite a bit of these are really our religious affairs correspondent martin thank you very much you're welcome now tanzania's president john michael fully has died at the age of 61 his aides say that he died of heart failure but tanzania's main opposition later as said his death was a result of the coronavirus fully hadn't been seen in public for several weeks he had repeatedly played down the risk of the virus and warned against taking vaccines . many had been speculating that tense and he's president john mega fully was in
1:16 pm
bad health because he'd been absent from public life and nearly 3 weeks. it was vice president sami a salute to the woman who will replace him who confirmed to make a fully would not return. to moti. futile arrangements are being made. and you will be notified and. our country shall be and a mourning period of 14 days. when the flags shall fly at half mast and. make a fully suffered heart complications for over 10 years the popular leader was elected in 2015 and made a name for himself as a corruption busting man of the people he support is expressed dismay at his state . i feel very sad and i am suffering because we had our leader our president we loved him and he loved us.
1:17 pm
hit us hard the whole of tanzania as a nation has been hit hard but for me personally i am deeply affected. it was only last year that magath really was reelected after the polls opposition figures accused him of cracking down on dissenting voices most recent criticism was focused on his handling of the coronavirus pandemic he dressed downplayed the effects of the virus calling on people to use prayer instead of masks. in government no one wears a mask including me. proves there is no corona virus and god loves this nation nothing is impossible for god. through these do one more of these political wishes will be granted that's a media salute tanzania's 1st female vice president will become the nation's 1st
1:18 pm
female president. we have told me on africa with us for more on this story he told me let's talk about these conflicting narratives because the official line is that that he passed away due to heart failure or heart disease and yet there are these rumors that he had covered 1000 so what is actually true here is difficult to say because the president's been out of the public eye for nearly 3 weeks now he's known to have this history of the of the heart problems you know the government is saying that that's the case but considering the secrecy around his well being the fact that we don't know exactly his condition when he died where he died and all of that. you know we still can't say exactly what the circumstances were if indeed as the opposition say that he caught the coronavirus so it's difficult to say at the moment let's take a look at who he was as president because when he came into office he said he's going to stamp out corruption at the same time as we saw in our report we know that
1:19 pm
he consistently downplayed the risk of the pandemic so what do you think his legacy is well as you say you know when he came into. came in as a no nonsense kind of guy you know stamping out corruption fixing infrastructure. he did a lot. to rally up the country rally of people behind you know his government in terms of him fighting for example to secure or renegotiate mining deals that he's felt the country was not gaining enough from and renegotiated some of those deals you know work to also you know as a system by corruption bring free education so there was a lot that a lot of the rural population would have felt he did well for them but at the same time you have this man who was intolerant to criticism and was heavy handed towards the press and so. well society the last elections there were cases of violence and . questions of irregularities as well so you have these 2 sides of
1:20 pm
a man who you know really split people a lot of people in the country complaining saying he did well but you have for example the opposition parties complaining that this man was heavy handed they even call him an authoritarian. so even when he when he disappeared these past few weeks there were arrests of certain people who were said to have been spreading rumors so that says a lot that even when the man was not present his own legacy was still operating let's talk about the vice president and she will now become the country's 1st woman president tell us more about her she's $61.00 she comes from the semi autonomous island of zanzibar she's the 1st president from tanzania from zanzibar she's a muslim she's going to be the 2nd female head of state from east africa one of the few from africa i guess it mirrors the rest of the world they're not many female heads of state she will serve the remaining 4 terms of mughal for the presidency
1:21 pm
and then she's a legible to be reelected for one there are mixed feelings about her in the ruling party if she told the line and carries on with michael felice policies she might be fine but if she tries to be a bit radical i think she will face a lot of internal party politics from the hardliners but it will be interesting to see whether she's been able to create a scenario where there is more transparency and we don't see a repeat for example of what was in your biography where the president the well being is not open and there's the 6 secrecy around the government so i think it's an open slate for the moment but you know that time will tell how she goes along and i tell me a lot of fun africa thank you so much thank you. now italy observed a national day of mourning on the anniversary of one of its grimmest days in recent history. a year has passed since the death toll in barack obama was so high that and army convoy had to transport coffins out of the city talian prime minister
1:22 pm
mario draghi visited the city to pay respect to the over 100000 italians who have died from cope at 19 i was once again under full lockdown amid a fresh wave of new cases. don't muddy or come enough he shares countless memories with many of the people laid to rest here. he was a member of the parish i was leading in vatican with if you will almost everyone buried in this section of the cemetery died from cove it. this is the 1st time don mateo has visited it since the pen demick struck the region. and. it's like going back months like reliving the moments of the people who are no longer here. these harrowing images were seen around the world military trucks loaded with caskets starting in march the
1:23 pm
bodies of the seized her transported to other cities across italy the trauma turin's were overwhelmed by the numbers as part of a mo became the epicenter of the pen demick in europe more than 3000 people died here in baghdad. when the pandemic 1st struck italy found itself alone among european nations confronted with an unknown threat the authorities were slow to react and when the government finally did mandate lockdowns 1st in the region and then in the entire country it was too late for. the picturesque town became a killing field the question of whether this tragedy could have been averted remains unanswered many blame the local and regional governments for closing things down too late the mayor of baghdad denied a request for an inch of. this was the frontline in the battle against cove it. seems from march last year when doctors and nurses were caught off guard everybody we spoke to here had just one comparison in mind war. remember one night 8
1:24 pm
o'clock maybe i was looking for body bags because i finished the backs were to put to the. people who were dying moments like that are now a thing of the past says doctors said joe and. the pen demick is far from over but for him and his team there is hope with x. nations on the rise and important lessons learned but we will have a different way sometimes because i we have all the mutations of the virus that vantage now is that so we know very more i know you were know we're not alone are the enemy they have adapted their medical procedures and learned how to cope doctor and he kept a diary his form of therapy as he says his accounts of being in the eye of the storm were printed in a local newspaper and moved many readers including the pope who invited him to the
1:25 pm
vatican. these pictures of the trucks leaving town loaded with bodies soon became iconic images of the tragedy that ship italy and the whole of europe to its core before their departure don't come to me not to use to give his final blessing to the deceased here at his church which was serving as a makeshift morgue at the time the community suffered this kind of me not the stood by its side during the church bells to notify loved ones under lockdown at home whenever trucks left the compound loaded with the dead though they took if you need that upon then we have been in with the with the weather that i told my priests that at the end of the pandemic we should be able to look ourselves in the mirror. he should be shepherds and not run away when our flaws in trouble and suffer he's got a muscle milk we going to be called in and want to be funded for the course the. one year later he feels fear has given way to a sense of solidarity but overcoming the collective trauma will take time not just
1:26 pm
here at the church but in the region as a whole. santa reporting there from italy let's get a reminder now of our top stories this hour vladimir putin has responded to remarks by u.s. president joe biden confirming that he thought the russian president was that chill or put in said he would continue to work with washington on terms in beneficial to moscow but that biden's comments were a case of the pot calling the kettle black. and germany has recorded its biggest rise on the daily coronavirus cases in 2 months more than 17000 new infections have been confirmed in the last 24 hour period the rise comes after an easing of restrictions in recent weeks and the spread of a more transmissible variant. coming up next on data if you are show conflict zone temps have asked in interviews former trump campaign advisor
1:27 pm
and republican congressman jack kingston that's in a moment so stay tuned and don't forget you can always get the latest headlines by following us on twitter our handle there is after the w. news for all of us here in berlin thank you for watching.
1:28 pm
absolutely going. into the conflict zone both old fool mean republican party in the us donald trump lost the last presidential election to fly business week washington jack can still
1:29 pm
call a republican to make fun chill the noise of why do so many new 40 teams to a body losing the means be the law and what kind of party is that you keep becoming . conflicts of. the flakes next on g.w. . children. continents. one giant problem and we're nearly there in no mood to see a picture you. mean by a female teacher is in the lady fuel economy truck odd how will climate change affect us and our children around. more than g.w. dot com slash water. imagine how many push. ups right now in the water right
1:30 pm
now i'll climb a tree to the coffee store. basis my plastic when i'm just one week. how much oil can really get. we still have time to. success. subscribe and more videos like this. the republican party absolutely has the nails the january 6th violence your party never used to be that forgiving of loses bit they won and they played by the rules but you won the right to spare a thought for the republican party in the us donald trump lost the last presidential election but he refuses to go quietly or even with all in fact he still claims the games will be other 231 my guess this week from washington is jack
1:31 pm
kingston former republican lawmaker i'm trying to devise a why do so many of these parties coming to a bad loser and his big lie and what kind of party is the g.o.p. becoming. jack kingston welcome to conflict zone thank you it's great to be with you who won the presidential election last november and i'm askin you because donald trump still says he won you part of this fantasy. no joe biden one other phrase this. one is the old fashioned way through get their people to the polls you know i do think that the court system along the way help them cope and help them and change voting rules but they want and they play by the rules that were there at the time
1:32 pm
and i did not like the outcome of it but he did win 8 it's one thing for you to say he didn't win and it's quite another thing by him to say it but also the large numbers in your party a buying into this enormous lie are you happy about that. no i do think anywhere that there is fraud or you know maybe not necessarily fraud but should mannequins are irregularities i think that you want to investigate them i've been very frustrated in my political life any time i hear somebody about somebody who voted who should not have voted our poll that stayed open longer than it should have or any kind of irregularity and i think you know looking at those charges is a healthy thing and which neither party should be afraid of but at the court we threw them out because threw them out 60 cts true throughout the objections didn't make i'm going to take your word on the number but that sounds probably right i will say
1:33 pm
you know given your example there is one contested congressional election in iowa right now that looks like it's going to be decided by a handful of there was another one in new york just in the last couple of weeks people agree that the outcome was the outcome in both cases republicans won but democrats were given all they got to challenge those results so it is not the 1st time results have been challenged at all by either party yeah but it's the 1st time they've spent a lot of time over it in the candidate himself even after the courts have had their say refuses to buy into it but tell me about the party because what does it say about so many members of your party that they're buying into this. well i think our base has bought into perhaps out of a suspicion of big big media biased reporting and so forth and they have
1:34 pm
had this kind of maybe instinctive reaction that could be unfounded it could be 100 percent emotional there were enough irregularities to give this thing some traction on and then you have the precedent of people like jimmy carter and already clinton all calling donald trump an illegitimate candidate i mean for him for ground out well the democrat party bought into this russian hoax for 2 years and draw the american people through that drama which was a fake drama but they believe that so you know unfortunately that's the state of suspicion that we both have we 2 parties have towards each other these days and then i think this is a man down on some lost the white house he lost the senate he lost the house of representatives your party never used to be that forgiving of loses did it why is the so few senior republicans have the courage to actually say to his face you lost
1:35 pm
it's time to bring down the curtain there seem to be a lot of gutless people in senior positions in your party is that fair you know i don't think gotten through attack completely tim i think there are a lot of people who watch half concerns and they're reacting to those concerns and they're at because the base but again i can't emphasize enough the democrat party hillary clinton and jimmy carter himself both deny donald trump they call him an illegitimate president the democrat party insist that he won because of russian collusion spend millions is a long time ago jack kingston this is a long time ago you're going to i'm talking about the state of your party now i'm trying to to get a handle on why the party is the way it is and why it's clinging to that what everybody knows is a big lie here. you might not like my answer but i'm giving it to you we are still very mindful of what the democrats did to donald trump they did not accept his presidency i'd say maybe
1:36 pm
a dozen members of congress would not even go to the right and this of them other way i did joe biden's inauguration i did not have to go i thought it was an important for republicans to go in except that but that parent got the truth of the matter is that there is a lot of suspicion between the parties and bitterness mr kingston this this nonsense story about the election being stolen this is what happens when so many people in your party tried to finesse 4 years of incessant lying by donald trump isn't that you never called out he lies on the contrary all tried to claim that they were just hyperbole they weren't hyperbole were they a good number of them were flat out lies but people in your party wouldn't call them out what pay well it's a little bit like joe biden the other day saying there were no vaccines when he came to office even though he himself had received a call with that thing and december he stood up on national t.v.
1:37 pm
and said there were no exact things when he came to office now that you know we have much comparison is that i mean donald trump was accused of more than 30000 false and misleading statements over the time he was in office you know i lied from day one didn't he line from day one in the office i think there's a lot of hyperbole if you cited for example hey we're the best president say there ever is one you know by c.n.n. type camera they might say that's a lie but most people would say well that's political hyperbole it's not really a lie it's an opinion and that's an exaggeration but remember many let if we're going to count out the lies let's look at all the lies thrown at donald trump in the russian hoax amende you know we're in a situation right now where. adult behavior is not encouraged by politicians and it would be great for example if the other night last week of joe biden in his state of the union type speech would his acknowledged donald trump an operation works the
1:38 pm
got a hold of that saying to the marketplace in 11 months when all his critics were saying it was going to take 5 years he got it done in the 11 months and mr unity president joe biden refused to even acknowledge that so you know the words i mean right now you're talking about the president who said the virus was a democratic hoax and who played it down consistently and said it was just as bad a no worse than flu and anyway it was under control with the consent the lies came home to roost on capitol hill on january the 6th didn't say when one by one trump in the zacharias whipped up the crowd into a frenzy and told them to go fight to reverse the stolen election in other words to fight for a lie that was what they were being asked to do wasn't that fight for a big fat blatant lie isn't that shameful for the party. i think that
1:39 pm
a lot of there has been misconstrued donald trump should have been more forceful when he said go to the capital peacefully but he did say there was a careful peaceful way to absolute truth which the media has trouble acknowledging by the way under the category of lies. i think that what these people did was absolutely outrageous the republican party condemned it immediately as we did the riots in portland and seattle and chicago and all over america all summer long but otherwise still waiting 'd on the democrats to denounce any of that violence including joe biden and self and so there were plenty of occasions when when joe biden criticize the violence you know that of any kid i'm not going to ask you to name why. but you know what he did very tepid lady is saying you know we need to look at causes but i didn't hear him to announce it on a quick like the republican party absolutely has the now the january sets violence
1:40 pm
and you know i think it's a port you know you use a fake you say they've denounced it mr king he said i've been i was impressed one of the most shocking aspects of january of the 6 was that the you gov poll and they later showed a plurality of your party members supported the attack on the u.s. capitol 45 percent of republicans strongly or somewhat strongly supported it as opposed to 43 percent who strongly or somewhat opposed the violence the point is this if close to half your members 10 you can't take polls seriously tell me that wasn't the after today among your party members and they got it completely wrong it's a narrative of the media and i understand why the need the media wants that narrative but republicans have always been the answer violence whether it then tape or whether whether it's b.l.m. whether it's trump supporters storming the capitol were very very consistent on that and i was absolutely appalled by the people who broke the law to go to jail
1:41 pm
whether it was the washington d.c. or seattle or portland oregon and it's just there's no gray area. and i don't know tom sponte don't jr his son says it's now donald trump's party to go along with that i don't believe that it is i think we're in a kind of a big tent situation and he's absolutely one of the dynamic leaders of the party. case in point 10 of the house republicans who voted for him to h. but now have multiple candidates running against them somewhat as a reflection of their but just in the same way a democrat stay at step out of line with their party leaders you know and say that the russian hoax was absolutely a hoax they would be opposed as well but even if it is trump's pontin you saying. the dynamic leader then is going to be a pretty aggressive and vindictive organization isn't it you remember what don jr said on january the 6th he told the crowds of cheering supporters that if they
1:42 pm
weren't going to fight to change the election results then he was coming after them if you're going to be the 0 and not the hero he said we're coming for you and we're gonna have a good time doing it in other words do is we say or you regret it this isn't politics this is open unashamed thuggery isn't it well i don't want to rock obama says telecom after us with their knives we're going to come after them with our guns i say that's really not very political rhetoric all politicians use the word fired if you watch the most recent share and the trump defender lawyer show time and time again where from chuck schumer unethical to joe biden everybody in between is the word fine and frankly it's politicians in europe are ignored by the probably i can relate it it's just something people want you to do when you get to office but they'll fire at these threats jack kingston that we had there weren't
1:43 pm
empty threats we saw in your state georgia what they meant when the election officials that to suggest might have lost the state they were threatened with violence their families were threatened and trump did nothing to condemn such blatant intimidation remember gabriel sterling implementation manager of georgia's election system directly addressing trump and telling him all of you who have not said a damn word about these threats are complicit stop inspiring people to commit potential acts of violence someone is going to get hurt someone's going to get shot someone's going to get killed and so they did on january the 6th you like that kind of vigilante years i'm that he was talking about trump supporters targeting election officials trolling them harris sing them at their homes because they didn't engineer the results from wanted is that the way you want your. party to behave well let me ask you this tim were you that upset when the democrats were getting in the face of sarah sanders and maxine waters was saying get in their face disrupt
1:44 pm
them and congresswoman to leave he said impeach the m. f. proudly on inauguration day and it can well ask you about the republicans you turn it around to talk about the bama crimes yamas can you about your own party your own party i guess what i'm telling you as i'm not in at the on the fence and no that's what this is intended to be but i'm not in a big because you know if you look at the rhetoric of the democrats which led to the violence that killed 50 police officers this summer and injure hundreds of americans why is somehow that kind of rhetoric removed from the result and yet done trump jr says something and he's got blood on his hands we're going to talk to the democrats about what they do and say i'm talking to you as a republican about what the republicans do and say and these threats these threats clearly had an effect didn't pay in the trolling and the harris mint of local officials in georgia you saw it well it's

a fact that isn't it let's go back to my home site gave sterling a friend of mine gave friends for 25 years i think he and secretary reps and burgers did a very decent job under very tough circumstances i did not like the out of court settlement that they did last spring which led to some any shenanigans on the democrat part but i think given the post-election car they were dealt with they were ok with it however let me say this none of them had physical violence against them i served in congress for 22 years i got death threats as does most do most elected officials get death threats most of them are rhetorical in this case the. quotes that you're citing arm. rhetorical nothing has happened early in our pret reps of birth governor camp or anyone else only outrageous and the outrageous threat from trump him self to judge a secretary of state as you mentioned brad raffensperger that if he didn't find
1:46 pm
trump another 11700 votes in overturn his defeat he might find himself facing criminal liability you think that's fine the begging for votes and the implied threat if they weren't being given if they were found. here's something in which we could agree i don't think that phone call was productive at all so it was going to be used as a power doesn't it wasn't just not productive it was an abuse of power wasn't this and i know the media is obsessed with donald trump hatred but change in the hot seat that this type of discussion this type of rhetoric has been building for years in america it's a sad thing but i'll say this is about accountability jack kingston it's not about the media taking positions about accountability for things that you say and do. ok that's what it's about health and i have it with you the colors not. so let me
1:47 pm
go on record on you know let me say this the party right now i think is a very position we also are the kind of the trample the non truck types and the party and i don't mean hardcore not on trial but. just the democrat party has their hard left progressives they deal with the moderates and that's part of their majority party but histories are saying our side how can you say that how can you say your party is doing well what happened to real diversity in the republican party different opinions you know lifelong republicans have lined up to endorse joe biden didn't they last september 100 former republican lawmakers friends and fellows of yours in those biden more than 70 top republican national security officials went over to biden hugely respected public servants who were the intellectual bedrock of your party and now they've gone. can afford to
1:48 pm
lose those people come on the lincoln project rather $9000000.00 pocketed $45000000.00 in their own consulting company then load it under allegations of sexual harassment is that and i'm talking about people like former defense secretary chuck hagel former cia and n.s.a. director michael hayden former director of national intelligence john negroponte william webster former director of the cia and the f.b.i. i'm talking about people like that who wouldn't under any circumstances vote for a republican party led by trump and you're not worried that you're losing people of this caliber this caliber to things i think the media should be worried and doing some soul searching on why did you have. that leak in part leadership on your t.v. shows over and over and over again up until it was found out i mean even after the
1:49 pm
election the media built the wonderful people at the lake and parse it again seemingly sexual harassment or harassers end up but it wasn't answering my question you're not answering my question. let me say this in terms of the has been so that you named i understand they're not in 'd the in crowd they were on the outs the trump movement was about populism it's about the working men and women these people were left out because they were washington insiders and i can tell you a seen it over and over again washington insiders don't feel like they're a member of the gang they switched parties because suddenly they can become relevant again you know none of those people particularly hurt us because they never helped us and you insist you're in a good place in the 8 presidential elections since 1980 you won the popular vote just once in this last election there were more registered independents than registered republicans not puts you in
1:50 pm
a good place yes let me tell you why 3 reasons number one history shows from bush to trauma to obama to clinton that the party out of power will take back the house and the senate history's on our side number 2 there's joe biden himself i don't know if he makes it 4 years he could not remember the name of his own secretary of defense the other day that by the way scares everybody in our enemies more especially watched it than anybody number 3 look at the democrat party right now klum oh their hero the toast of the town is has his own party saying he needs to resign then look at the other jumbo state in america california gavin newsome spin recall they only need a 1000000 and a cemetery how many come back how many come back to your party come it come by. party track internally 'd because africa i want to get a sense i want to get a sense of what the g.o.p.
1:51 pm
will look like with trump still controlling it as he does now let's take marjorie taylor green newly elected to the house of representatives last november notable statement barack obama was a secret muslim in june 2800 she said a california wildfire was started by a laser beam from space and controlled by a prominent jewish banking family with connections to democrats trump was so impressed with her racist and anti-semitic views that he tweeted that she was a future republican star marjorie he said he's strong on everything and never gives up a real winner really is that the type of person who achieves star status in today's g.o.p. you happy with. have concerns but i know you have had the same worries about some of the silly things that. cause your car terraces for example remember last year she said 12 years less we're down to 11. that's pretty
1:52 pm
scary where's the baby about that oh it's ok because she's good looking she's a little socialist darling what about to leave what about tell her not the concerns you have about marjorie 10 agreeing term tell me what you said you just brushed it away and said i have some concerns about what concerns my concerns but they wanted to put her on the education committee until the democrats voted are off one apparently education views like that how yes will you saying here's what i know after serving in congress for 4 for 22 years that out of 430000 people you're always going to have the variety of people who say stupid things are he has them but they don't rule jack kings the few people do feel ashamed about the direction in which the g.o.p. is headed but you're not one of them jennifer horn former chair of the new hampshire republican party code its current state. the most open embrace of an anti democracy movement that we've seen in our country in a very long time but these alone voices and they all being swept aside by the
1:53 pm
trumbull jargon on our side outside of america there's huge concern about your party about his attitude to truth to free press to democratic checks and balances do you not understand that 1st of all let's put it in perspective new hampshire. we have 50 states new hampshire is one of the smallest i've never heard of this woman but you guys are over now because she agrees with your narrative that she some kind of odd thought process well i got a few people are ashamed i didn't when senator obama is an icon well there's nobody he's ashamed of their vote for for. when they got there our schools aren't even open energy prices gas is going up about 20 percent of the pie at the pump because he's already. started messing up the energy policy crisis on the border where we have 150157 percent increase in migrants coming
1:54 pm
over and they're not migrants are you know and a new legal aid is you know you hate the word illegal alien which is a legal term but that's what's going on on these are so these are self-imposed era's i don't see how the democrat party can say oh i love the fact that yes you can go and steal what i can't wait ok but we're back on the democrats let's listen in the time we have left can we just concentrate on the republican party because so many of your members seem still to want a man who has no interest in the trappings of democracy if you go on eroding people's trust in democratic institutions and trump clearly has its own even best spots in the taters will be glad to see you win doesn't it worry you even chump admitted that he got on best with think taters buds of a feather it's amazing how the media has to get a name column here's one here's one that you look at the states that are run by
1:55 pm
republicans 27 of them the majority of states are run by republicans the ones that have governors like on the census in florida and governor at a texas there reopen the economies are going well people are enjoying their freedom schools are open so children are losing a year that small businesses are coming back at jobs are being found and created that's what a 1000000 americans are dead because of the actions of a president who said it's all around the control it's all under control and yes the republican party is bigger. but the media is the media can't get over it and i understand you don't like it you don't like freedom you know i don't like individual responsibility you want california you want new york you want maryland you want in there the state you want people to be law and you want everybody to drive down the street other cells where in
