testifying on claims of hearsay as white house rips into it. how much hearsay should be allowed in the impeachment hearings, defense attorney david bruno, thanks for joining us, a long day listening to this yesterday. >> it will happen again multiple days next week and this is what will happen in the house. we have to do it all over again in the senate. shannon: a trial. in terms of what happened yesterday, day one. it did seem it was a lot of i heard, he said and he heard that from someone else who heard that from someone else. how can that be taken seriously and used when talking about impeaching the president of the united states and don't have first and evidence yourself? >> we don't have the of evidence we would have in a court room. if we were in the courtroom
yesterday all the testimony would be inadmissible because hearsay is not admissible unless there are certain exceptions like dying declarations, somebody on their deathbed in anticipation of death, or exclaimed utterances for example but this testimony is not -- we are in a political process. this is not the rules of evidence, we are not in a courtroom and they are able to get out this stuff but we need to look at this and say how credible is it? there are multiple levels of hearsay. there was a tweet about cell phones, the telephone game we all played when we were young shows multiple levels of hearsay result in inaccuracies and that could be the problem. heather: we have heard quid pro quo, now we are in bribery. how can it be bribery when the person on the other side doesn't even know about it? i'm talking about volodymyr
zelinsky. >> he didn't know the aid was withheld at the time so how in the world could it be based on that demand? great points like jim jordan, superstar for the republicans for sure. this will continue because there are only a limited number of people who had conversations with trump and sondland is what it boils down to, the most support and witness but absent sondland, who has direct knowledge? sondland has a great argument for privilege. they may not get it from sondland because of executive privilege issues. heather: someone the republicans are trying to get out there and wanted to ask questions is the whistleblower. this was interesting. adam schiff saying he has no
idea of the whistleblower but his office seemed to say the opposite prior to this. >> only adam schiff knows who the whistleblower's. >> my colleagues said the statement repeatedly, i met with the whistleblower and i know who the whistleblower is. first time i said it was false, the second through 40th time i said it it will be false the last time they say it. >> a fact witness on this point and the chairman. how can you have dual responsibilities? he's not under oath when he makes those statements. he is a person that needs to be question. >> is not under oath when he makes that statement, are you saying he's lying? >> i am not saying that but there are reports the whistleblower went to his staff before he went to the ig and that needs to be ferreted out and i'm very hopeful from what i heard, lindsey graham saying we
are not going to allow hearsay and again we have to do this all over again. heather: you would think democrats listening to what happened yesterday if they want to be taken seriously there will be some conversations behind-the-scenes but we need to get this whistleblower to come forward. >> they are having those conversations as a result of what happened yesterday and these are natural talking points about hearsay. they have to have the use concerns because they have to convince the public, the representatives and later the senators and it doesn't sound like they have convinced many republicans. heather: thank you, appreciate you joining us, more to come. breaking moments ago, firing several rockets at israel breaking an overnight cease-fire. the latest from israel.
>> reporter: we showed you life was getting back to normal in southern israel, shops, schools, roads and markets all closed down, rocket fire comes out but the us pointing out 5 rockets just fired in the last hour alone. we thought this would be clear and moving forward. there was a cease-fire between islamic jihad and the israelis. the last 48 hours on numerous occasions, 450 rockets were fired by the iranian backed faction of islamic jihad in retaliation for the targeted assassination of one of their commanders. as a result, israel struck back calling it operation black belt the left 32 people dead inside gaza. the vast majority of the militants, including 7 members of a family who were within
islamic jihad commander, they were killed early this morning, something, possibly a reason we have seen rockets fire overhead in the last hour. as this settles the un special coordinator middle east peace treated this, egypt and the un worked hard to prevent the most dangerous escalation in and around gaza, the coming hours and days will be critical, also maximum restraint to prevent bloodshed. the middle east does not need more wars. 48 hours long, really quite a hit to islamic jihad. a lot of their facilities, we are waiting to see another escalation or if it will hold. heather: thank you very much. mexican drug cartels now invading us national parks, marijuana crops, destroying land and wildlife, killing the

heather: mexican cartels poisoning water and wildlife in california's national park by growing marijuana. will the threat to the environment to be in a for democrats to take action on the southern border? let's ask sheriff mark lamb. appreciate it. will this be the final straw for democrats to do something about the border? >> let's hope. we deal with the same amount of trash in our desert, they leave cars out there. we don't have the marijuana,
that is in the northwest, california, washington but same thing, it takes so much chemicals and so many things, total disregard for our country. heather: the manpower it takes. let's look at some of the items, 3000 pounds of trash, 3 miles of irrigation pipes, propane tanks, talking specifically about california grow areas here and 2000 illegal grow areas contaminating the national forest but it is spreading to arizona and impacting the trash. >> if you go to the border, abandon stolen cars, cattle
choking - they really do not care. it is about getting their product to america which is human beings and drugs and i don't know where the environmentalists are. i take somebody out to the desert, they wondered the same thing. heather: we hear the environmentalists talk about building the wall through certain areas, they are up in arms over that, environmentalists when it comes to the safety of our oceans and waterways. this can be done. >> they have 2000 grow farms, what they are doing what they can to eliminating those and they will need to do some massive rehabilitation as well. and clean it up and they literate up with trash again. we've got to continue to do border security and secure the border with boots on the ground,
hopefully funding to local agencies. >> it's not fair for people living in those communities to jump things up. >> they will carve their own paths through the desert. and smuggling drugs and humans into the country. that is what we have got to stop. heather: hopefully someone will stop up and think about it like you are. the time now, we will talk about adam schiff who was wearing all kinds of hats at the impeachment hearing. imagine him in one of them. prosecutor judge and jury declaring those hats and witness as well. is that fair? does evidence matter? our political panel on deck to the bait that. but here is beer never broke my heart. ♪
>> you interrupting our time here? >> you have mischaracterized a. >> suspend the 435 minutes of congress, you're the only member who knows who that individual is. >> that is a false statement. heather: the first public impeachment hearing starting off with a bang but with adam schiff acting as prosecution, judge and jury is there even a chance that this can be impartial?
kevin wallace and tea party patriots genie martin, thank you for joining us this morning. it was a long day, the first of many days to come. i will start with you. what is your overall take on what transpired? >> i watched the first day of public hearings, the impeachment about nothing, democrats don't have anything on donald trump, they have no evidence and we know from reading of a summary that donald trump and the ukrainian president said there was no pressure, no conditions and the funds were released. >> what about that? that is a fact. there was nothing given, nothing taken, they did get the aid.
how could it possibly lead to an impeachable offense? >> i love seinfeld but i agree with chris wallace who said watching the testimony yesterday that it was very damaging to donald trump, chris wallace said ambassador bill taylor's testimony was very damaging because it laid out methodically the timeline involved with holding up the aid. yes, the aid was given to ukraine two days after the press reported it was being held up in the whistleblower report came out. only under pressure of public scrutiny was the aid released to the ukrainians. heather: the other thing we were thinking about, this aid included more aid than the obama administration gave including lethal aid but that wasn't discussed a lot. >> it wasn't, but it did include more aid and the kind that
ukraine wants so it can defend itself, the proper kind of aid that ukraine wants and feels that it needs. heather: back to you since we are talking facts and figures and you are talking about taylor's testimony, did it seem almost humorous when he was talking is jim jordan pointed out 6 people in four conversations and one answer, things like that? >> it provided a good overview, we will hear from ambassador yavanovitch who was removed by this administration and folks on the a, lieutenant colonel indman and sondland, this is just the first day.
kent and adam schiff saying and fatter coins it was russia that attempted to interfere in our election, ukraine did not attempt to interfere but at the same time we have democratic senators who encouraged ukraine to investigate donald trump in may 2018 but no one is talking about that, these three senators right here and we have a quote that we supported the capacity, building process and i disappointed that some appear to have cast aside these principles to avoid the i are of donald trump, and any efforts to impede cooperation with this investigation. >> this is not the first time democrats have a double standard when it comes to donald trump. not the first time they had a donald trump double standard when it comes to ukraine. democrat senators asking ukraine
to investigate and cooperate with the us investigation and joe biden talked about conditions he had, with a are okay with conditions and investigations into the 2016 election as long as it is democrats doing it. when it is donald trump doing it they don't want to know what happened in 2016 or get to the bottom of it and they don't think the president of the united states should be sitting foreign-policy. heather: what about the hypocrisy? >> i don't see hypocrisy here. compare the president's extortion and bribery with regards to ukraine to three democratic senators wanting to get to the bottom of why ukraine was propping investigations into associates close to the trump campaign is that a similar argument to be made. heather: there will be more on that note. thank you for joining us.
