    Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) was asked for his position on the so-called Green New Deal, which is a piece of legislation that would remake the nation’s economy with a goal of curbing the threat of anthropogenic climate change. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is forcing a vote on it on the Senate floor. Durbin expressed “Morning Joe” astonishment with the bill and his conversation with his colleague Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA). “To be honest with you, I’ve read and I’ve re-read it, and I asked Ed Markey, ‘What in the heck is this?” Durbin said to giggles from the “Morning Joe” set. “He says it is an aspiration. It’s a resolution aspiration. What we’re going to do is ask the Republican leader, ‘What’s your position on global warming?’ while we’re on the record. Shouldn’t you come out and tell us whether you believe manmade, human activity is having an impact on our environment?” Despite those questions, Durbin would not commit to voting for or against the legislation.

    Tuesday on CNN’s “OutFront,” billionaire hedge fund manager and liberal activist Tom Steyer said until President Donald Trump was removed from office “the country is at risk.” Steyer said, “I believe that we have a crisis in the United States. The crisis is the president of the United States. And that the Constitution gives us one solution, which is to impeach him and remove him from office. And until that happens, the country is at risk. People are going to be suffering, and we’ll not be doing the right thing. So I think it’s the crisis and, therefore, we should deal with it directly.” He continued, “We have a president who has committed impeachable offenses, and they do rise to the level of impeachment, And if you simply look at the last week, you look at his fake state of emergency, you see a president who’s willing to go directly against the Constitution, to contravene Congress’ right to allocate the money in our society because he didn’t get his way and he threw a fit. So, in fact, what we’ve seen is a president who’s going at the most important issues that a president can do the separation of powers.

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “AC360,” former Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe stated that he did not believe Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s offer to wear a wire while meeting with President Trump was a good idea. Host Anderson Cooper asked, “[A]t the time that — in the book that Rosenstein offered to wear a wire to a meeting with the president…did you think that was a good idea?” McCabe answered, “Absolutely not.” McCabe added, “I felt like it was an incredibly invasive and potentially precedent-setting thing to do. I didn’t think it was necessary at that point. I mean, if you think about it, the reason you would send someone in with a concealed recording device to tape the utterances and the statements of a subject is to capture evidence of intent. We didn’t need to do that in this case. We knew what the president intended. He made — through his own public statements, statements to Lester Holt in the infamous interview where he talked about thinking about Russia when he fired the director of the FBI. So, it was really some — it was a risky and controversial position that I did not want to put the agency in.” Follow Ian
