>> reporter: chairman of the house judiciary committee jared nadler is not holding back, launching a wide reaching investigation, beyond the scope of the mueller probe demanding documents from 81 people associated with the president from the white house to the campaign and family business saying the clear loss hasn't broken. >> our goal is to hold the administration accountable for the obstruction of justice, abuse of power and corruption. our goal is to vindicate rule of law. >> reporter: donald trump said he would cooperate. >> are you going to cooperate with nadler? >> i cooperate all the time. no collusion, it is all a hoax. >> reporter: chairman nadler says it is too early to talk about impeachment before they

2:05 am
are causing more problems for themselves and for the president. >> now that very few people expect a russian collusion bombshell, democrats are prepared to investigate trump endlessly to find anything to remove him from office. the trump russia probe has pretty much existed behind-the-scenes, these new efforts will be a lot more public. and this could be damaging for trump. this will be more politically damaging for the democrats because this just reeks of a political effort by the left to remove trump from office as vengeance for him winning in 2016. democrats are obsessed with removing him from office. they've become the identity of their party and i have to think at some point the constituents of these democrats will demand something from them other than just resist trump. it doesn't seem like a great plan moving into 2020. rob: there is no specific date set for the release of the mueller report.

2:14 am
together to bypass our current way of voting you will see a constitutional challenge on multiple fronts. the important thing is the starting place. if you think about our founding fathers, the system is no accident. the way we elect the president was one of the last things, very last things decided during our constitutional convention. think about it, a national popular vote seems like a pretty obvious choice. the system the founding fathers envisioned, would have been cited on day one or day to. rob: there were fears of straight democracy and a straight popular vote. can you tell us a little bit about what the thinking was. >> one thing a lot of americans forget is the primacy of the state is important players in our government system. even the way the united states
2:15 am
senators were originally elected and the states as important players, primacy, elements of the government even above the national government so this, the electoral college is one of the means the founding fathers used to ensure that states had an enhanced vote over a populist system of government, the national popular vote would effectively entail. >> let's look at the interstate compact including rhode island, vermont, hawaii, dc, connecticut, maryland, massachusetts, washington, new jersey, illinois, new york and california. if this were to happen to you think it would happen by 2020? are we looking at 2024 or not at all? >> it is not going to happen by 2020.
2:16 am
as you list those states, obviously those are states that voted for al gore in 2000 and hillary clinton in 2016, highlights the partisan nature of this effort but right now even with colorado announcing they are going to join the compact, 181 electoral votes, they have to get to 270 votes before this contract takes effect. they have to recruit a lot more states right now before this goes into effect and they have a long way to go. rob: if estate vote for one candidate and their delegate since their vote for another person. i feel like that -- that would be an outrage. >> you hear these days a lot about constitutional crises. i can't think of one worse than

this. if you talk about problems, risks between red states and blue states, just wait until rural voters are at the mercy of the big urban areas of the country. this would set a constitutional crisis in our country. rob: it is interesting. jillian: thank you for your time. rob: 17 minutes after the hour. a judge blocking ice is bright's request to fast-track the case to come back to the us. her attorney says she is in danger. the trump administration is responding. >> chick-fil-a. jillian: the president serving up another fast food feast, how social media is heating up. great news, liberty mutual customizes-

fried chicken to the winners yesterday saying he could have had the white house staff cook something fancy but who would want that when you could get fast food. a lot of folks on social media loving this moment, would love to have that on the buffet. another twitter user saying i can't think of anyone who would pass up chick-fil-a. i certainly wouldn't. lauren said considering how good chick-fil-a is it is a great idea. the boys would rather have that than a formal dinner. this is becoming a trend for the president and this will be one of those footnotes in the history books, the first president to do this. rob: we should get some chick-fil-a for the meeting after the show. >> that is one way to get me to a meeting. rob: it has got to be that way. thank you so much. jillian: congresswoman omar back in the hot seat over her

2:42 am
>> that expert is joining us this morning, why he's taking aim at the far left climate policy. thanks for coming on this morning, you stand in the face of a lot of science and a lot of evidence that suggests we are heeding this planet up and doing irreparable damage. give us your perspective. >> that is a great way to frame it because there is a scientific consensus we do heat the planet when we burn fossil fuels and theyy this harmless pollutants called carbon dioxide but it is a bait and switch going on and has been for 15 years, probably made most famous by al gore. there is no scientific consensus that time the amount of warming of far less than 1 ° over the last 120 years which is due to carbon dioxide is having any damage on the planet whatsoever.
2:43 am
that is the bait and switch, the scientific consensus does not relate to climate catastrophe. there's been no statistically significant increase in the number of storms, the rate of sealevel rise, the number of droughts, all these end of the world predictions are not the scientific consensus. i agree with the scientific consensus and so do my physicists in our coalition that there is a slight warming because of carbon dioxide but climate catastrophe justifying the end of our fossil fuel economy is simply not a scientific fact. >> if you were face-to-face with alexandria ocasio cortez what would you say to her? >> i would say, i've asked her to be with me so she can hear the same thing i said to my statistic students at american university for 15 years. what do you believe about the effect of the slight warming on climate variables like storms, droughts, hailstones and other
2:44 am
catastrophic events and why do you believe it? she will be unable to because the very studies she cites like the un warning we have only 12 years to live, in the footnote the studies they cite show so far there has been no statistically significant increase in the number of these catastrophic events. rob: you saw 60 minutes sunday and they had a story about climate change in this lawsuit kids are filing against the federal government and it had a lot of bad news for climate change deniers, basically the federal government has enforced to admit they have seen this evidence for the last 50 years, since lyndon johnson's administration that there is damage being done to the planet. i wonder what you made of that story. >> i saw a series of claims of what the federal government has said which were false. the federal government's own data show the terrible tornadoes
2:45 am
that occurred yesterday if you look at those over 10 year periods for the last 100 raids, it was as high in 1920 as it is today. people confuse the weather and the climate. climate is what happens over decades. you can have a storm, you can have a flood, you can have a hurricane, climate statisticians like i do, look at the average over those decades and compare them to 120 years ago. that is why i say we have these extreme weather eventss that are not attributable to the earth being warmed by carbon dioxide, just a tiny amount. rob: thank you for coming on, we appreciate it. jillian: 15 minutes until the top of the hour, donald trump's approval rating on the rise. what does it mean in 2020? former poster for the trump campaign says the president has the right opponents.

>> donald trump's approval rating on the rise after taking a hit from the most recent government shutdown and emergency declaration. rob: what does this mean in 2020? jillian: joining us to break down the results, thank you for joining us this morning, let's dive in and look at the first poll numbers study with the president's approval rating, we are up 3%, february 2019. >> this -- the government shutdown is over but he has a record of success and able to talk about the record of success in the state of the union
2:51 am
address and the interesting part of that was after the state of the union address we saw the numbers go up, he talked directly to 50 million americans and that helped. he was allowed to talk about his successes on the economy and social security. rob: this was an impressive one. 45% for bill clinton, 40% for barack obama in his first 2 years and look at donald trump at 46%. if you watch mainstream media coverage you would think he would be at 6%. to see him hanging in especially with bill clinton who ended up being a great president is pretty impressive. >> very similar numbers. he kept his promises out there and because he had that record of success. we see those moves with the economy coming up, hundreds of thousands of jobs each month, created 5 million new jobs. the other thing you are seeing
2:52 am
is talking about things like wages going up. 15 years before he became president wages were stagnant. they were not going up and in some cases going down so that is helpful. rob: talk about the midwest states, the president has a bit of a boost, 46% compared to democrats with 40%. what happens to that number as we move on? >> i've got to be honest with you. i've seen better numbers for him in the battleground states after the state of the union address. jillian: why the shift? >> the reason we are seeing the shift is the government shutdown was over people said it was okay. even though it might have heard him in the short-term, in the long-term it helped because immigration reform is important to americans and you have this
2:53 am
president doing what they want. your typical american. i'm not saying leftist democratic primary voter, they understand the first step to border security is securing the border and the president is right on that. the other thing that is helping is look at democrats running for president, calling extreme radical socialist democrats, elections are about choices. what you are seeing is the president being perceived in those battleground states as the better choice for america. rob: the final one is the bad news, the sun belt, florida, arizona, a couple other states, those are important states, 50% for any generic democrat, 39 for trump. >> i've seen recent numbers in florida, job approval ratings over 50% in florida. that is very important. the other thing is he's not
2:54 am
going to run against a generic democrat. he will run against a democrat that probably when all is said and done, taken socialist positions, the only way they can win a democrat primary. probably coming out for open borders, higher taxes and those are the issues he can win on and beat the democrats, great contrast. rob: losing primary for democrats with all those people beating each other up pretty good. >> 54 after the hour. drivers flipping out over a new billboard. jillian: capturing everyone's attention this morning. ♪ ♪ . .
