♪ ♪ ed: did. j this morning. i wonder who picked that on one. pete: either will hit me or hold me. rachel: is that the lyrics to the song? pete: those who like me love me but those who don't like me don't like me so much. [laughter] ed: welcome back, i was about to say welcome, rachel but maybe not. how are you? rachel: good, very good.
3:01 am
ed: fantastic. we will be playing dj this morning. maybe the fourth hour we will let you play? pete: send us a song. ed: army navy game today, pete? pete: we are ready to go. i'm not going but the army has won last three years in the row. ed: five and seven this year and navy is 9-2. pete: we have been there before. we like a good underdog. we will talk about it all morning long. i won't waste my material right now. ed: months allege nancy pelosmonths ago nancy pelosiwas. instead the house judiciary committee yesterday in historic vote but also party line votes approved two articles of impeachment against president trump. pete: out of the judiciary committee the first article of impeachment for abuse of power, party line vote as ed said. 23-17. second vote on articles of impeachment, obstruction of
3:02 am
congress. ed: not of justice. pete: 23-17. we saw this coming. rachel, here we are. rachel: what's interesting, is the president is taking this in stride. you know what? i don't care how they decide how they carry out this impeachment. it can be long. it can be short. i know i'm innocent. here's what he has to say about that. >> it's a scam it's something that shouldn't be allowed, and it's a very bad thing for our country. and you are trivializing impeachment. we did nothing wrong. so i will do long or short. i have heard mitch. i have heard lindsey. i think they are very much in agreement on some concept. i will do whatever they want do. it doesn't matter. i wouldn't mind a long process. i would like to seat whistleblower, who is a fraud. ed: when he says long or short he is talking about a senate trial. short trial you have senator lindsey graham saying maybe there should be a motion to dismiss where according to the rules you only need a
3:03 am
simple majority, which the republicans might have in that case. you would have to make sure you keep all republicans like mitt romney on board that's why there is some indecision. have a motion to dismiss and get this over with quickly. rachel: is that good or bad? ed: the president is really itching for a trial. i will do either one in. he likes the idea of a long one. get the whistleblower. let's get hunter biden and adam schiff as a witness. all the people that he has wanted to call like democrats like jerry nadler and adam schiff would not call in. pete: either way a president undeterred. okay setting stock market records. passed usmca. nancy pelosi trying to take credit of it. no way she will lose that china deal. pass naa which includes the space force and paid family leave and increases for the military. pay for the military. he steps back and says if you are looking at what i was sent here to do, this was a week where i delivered. let them do their thing.
3:04 am
ed: that may be getting why democrats are getting nervous. polls in battle ground states like your home of wisconsin that suggests particularly independent voters turning against impeachment. look at this monmouth poll should the president be impeached and removed from office 45% yes, 50% no. so no president wants to have 45% of the public saying you should be impeached and removed from office. but, based on the division in the country it's not unexpected that 45% would say that the key is the 50% is saying no. pete: again, that's a national poll. rachel: national poll. it's not in the battle ground states. but also we know these polls can be wrong. a lot of people who like donald trump will never tell a polster they like him because trump voters have been smeared as racist. and so i think that you any, polls can be wrong. pete: ohio, wisconsin, michigan, pennsylvania, in those swing states, impeachment is tanking. amongst independents and, of course, amongst republicans
3:05 am
in a place that is motivating his base. ed: right. pete: in a way democrats never thought would happen through this process. rachel: meanwhile democrats say this entire process is solemn. the media is going along with this, too. it's such a sad day. >> these proceedings have been conducted in a solemn, fair, dignified manner. >> you could just tell from the looks on all of their faces, nicole, that this is a moment in history that none of them really wanted. >> our chairman would remind us of the solemnity of the moment. >> no victory lap here. whatever they feel privately they're taking it seriously as it warrants historically and constitutionally. >> very solemn. you feel the weight of the present but you feel the weight of the past. >> today is a solemn and sad day. ed: how could you say they are taking it so seriously when one democrat was caught on the watching golf on his
3:06 am
laptop. this is impeachment. this is rare. this is historic. this is what you claim to be solemn. so, close the laptop, put the phone aside, focus on your work. do your job. but, instead, it's a big political game. rachel: because they have known they wanted to do this all along. that's what jim jordan was saying. take a look. >> we'll know the real feeling next november when the american people get to decide. but the whole thing was ridiculous. this is really about what nancy pelosi said three and a half weeks ago when she called the president of the united states an imposture. they have never accepted that 63 million of us voted for this guy to come to this town and drain the swamp. won an electoral college land slide. they have never accepted that fact and they have been looking for any way and every way to take him out of this town and take him out of office. now it comes down to impeachment where all the facts are on the president's side. they don't care because they have never accepted the will of the american people. pete: nancy pelosi recently confessed. she was asked why are you
3:07 am
doing this so fast? she says no we have been doing this for 22 months. this is something that they have been laying up. they were hoping it was going to be bob mueller. then they ran into this called whistleblower and ran with the ukraine thing. that face you see. that somber face might be the pucker face of someone saying oh, we're screwed. we're down this road. we can't go back. we have got democrats jumping ship. we will see how many of those 31 democrats ultimately don't vote for impeachment. they are seeing the polls and realizing this is utterly unpopular and we can talk with having prayer groups. do you think nancy pelosi is leading prayer? nobody is buying that this is a prayerful process. they can say it all they want. the godless democrats are praying through their entire impeachment. i gotcha i'm sure that's true. no chance that's true. they are putting on that face, the media is letting them do it. and the rest of us know -- rachel: if a republican had done this and said we are praying through this process
3:08 am
imagine how secure united stated they would all be. ed: truth accidentally revealed. no, we have been doing this basically his entire presidency. the ukraine phone was cass a couple months ago if you have been doing this for a a couple years, that's odd. truth revealed on the campaign trail. remember what al green said about. we can. the democrat has said this since day one. weave can't beat the president at the ballot box so basically we will have to impeach him. what are the democrats doing out on the trail. look at michael bloomberg. maybe is he repeating one of the same mistakes in 2016 when she said i'm going to kill all those coal jobs. watch. >> how to fight donald trump. we beat him a number of times. we took on donald trump after he said he would pull us out of the climate paris agreement. as president, i will accelerate america's transition to an all carbon economy. we have as a goal 2050. we have to work as soon as as we clean a clean energy
3:09 am
economy. because the alternative is just too bad for all of us. ed: can you believe how he is reading the paper? what are we? pete: this guy is not going to be president. what in the world? he is doing exactly what hillary clinton did. to your point, you mentioned it. when she said well, remember those jobs, those coal mining jobs, maybe they should be gone. >> i'm the only candidate which has a policy about how to bring economic opportunity using clean renewable energy as the key in to coal country. because we're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business. ed: and she never recovered from that in some of the key battle ground states where coal jobs matter. rachel: i love these moments because they are so revealing. because a lot of times they try to hide where they really are at. every now and then the truth comes out. it's interesting, $40. an extra $60 in someone's
3:10 am
electric bill means nothing to bloomberg. if you are on a fixed income, if you are a working family. that's disaster for you. and so he is completely out of touch. and by the way perfect contrast for trump. what does trump call coal? beautiful coal. pete: beautiful clean coal. we get 60% of our energy right now from fossil fuels. 30% from coal. they are going to that i can jly. somehow that's going to be replaced by wind mills that kill birds. also shutting down nuclear power which is the cleanest power we had if we wanted to shift to that. that's evil, too. if all your power is evil. do we put mice on bikes and hope they power for us. rachel: only rich people can afford to heat their homes in that economy. well, here we are we are going to turn to headlines. 13-year-old boy murdered in chaa
3:11 am
murder of an student. she somehow crawled up a flight of stairs to get help at a guard potus but she ended up dying at the hospital. the nypd picked up the teen for trespassing when they say he confessed to the murder. he was carrying a knife, but it's unclear if that was actually the murder weapon. police are questioning another teen and looking for one more who may have been involved. the battle over president trump's tax returns now heading to the supreme court. the court has agreed to hear president trump's appeals in three separate cases on releasing his financial records. the president's lawyers have argued he and his family have blanket immunity which lower courts have rejected. actress sally field is arrested while protesting climate change with jane fonda in washington. the hollywood star throwing her bound hands in the air while being escorted by officers. sally field one of several celebrities who have joined jane fonda for weekly fire

3:17 am
honored the life of officer steven carr. any time have you an officer killed in the line of duty, it impacts everything arkansasen. it resonates every corner of the united states whether it's new jersey or arkansas. i spoke with the police chief. i was there at the service. talked to the family. such a strong family we have. our men and women in blue who stand in the gap every day. this individual who committed this evil act came to commit that act and to harm others. it has been revealed that, yes, he shot officer carr 10 times in the head execution style. he had on his person almost 99 rounds of ammunition. he had 99 bullets and he had already fired 16. and he was aiming to carry those out somewhere else. there was a large festival in the area. so whether he was going to direct it at civilians or other law enforcement officers, this individual was disturbed and fortunately, justice was swift.
3:18 am
pete: leslie, any time someone shoots at a police officer is insane to me. to go up to a cop car and shoot someone in the head execution style is almost another level. president trump want to make killing a law enforcement officer a capital crime, a death penalty. would you support that? >> absolutely. any time that you have individuals who attack those who are charged with protecting us, these law enforcement officers go out every single day, every single night not knowing whether or not they are going to come home. their families don't know whether or not they are going to come home. again, it resonates with all of us and all of our officers across the state that that could have been their family member whose service they attended on thursday. that's why it's disturbing to us. but we must protect our peace keepers. we must raise them up. we must thank them for their service because quite honestly they are not paid enough. they do this because they answer the call to serve. when you have someone commit an act such as this individual did last saturday night, walking up, again,
3:19 am
execution style and was prepared to fire more ammunition, whether it was going to be at other officers or at innocent civilians who were attending a christmas festival just right around the corner. pete: pure evil, no doubt. >> absolutely. pete: we want to go to another case. a teenager is charged in your state as well in the shooting in 2017 death of a police officer in newport, lieutenant patrick whether ford. he was shot while investigating a vehicle break-in. there he is there he is in the line of duty investigating a vehicle that had been broken into. a 16-year-old shoots and kills him. he is now being tried as an adult. do you support that? >> we do. and our office -- my office is hand links that case. the court of appeals upheld the lower court's decision to try the teenager as an adult in this case. i actually had the opportunity to meet lieutenant weatherford. he was named the law enforcement officer of the year. i had an opportunity to meet him and shake his hand and
3:20 am
he grew up and was raised right down the road from where i am from. this was, again, devastating a 16-year-old fire and kill a 15-year veteran of the police department there in jackson county there in newport, arkansas. another example of an incredible life lost senselessly to someone who just fired, again, at a police officer and so that individual who is now 18 i am pleased that the court has decided and to uphold the lower court's decision. he should not be tried in juvenile court. pete: absolutely. >> if you take a firearm and shoot at anyone, you should be tried as an adult. it's an adult crime and deserves adult punishment. pete: deterrent as high as humanly possible. leslie let ledge, thank you for your time we remember this morning and god bless these officers. >> thank you. pete: illegal immigrants who want to get a driver's license they can now get one right here in new york. not all county clerks support the new law.
3:21 am
and now some of them are taking action. one of those clerks joins us next. grandpa, can you tell me the story again? every family has their own unique story. give your family the chance to discover theirs this holiday season, with ancestry.

ed: next week's democratic debate in jeopardy african democrats threatened a boycott. 7 qualified democrats set to
3:25 am
take the stage at lola mayor mount university all say they will not cross a picket line of the school's food service workers. they are now pushing for a new contract. ironically the debate was moved to lmu because of labor disputes at the original venue and michael bloomberg's 2020 campaign has a hilarious response to this viral video. an improv comedy group pretending to be bloomberg heads and dancing at a fake bloomberg rally. look like a bunch of nerds. right. bloomberg's campaign confirmed the dance was not created by the campaign saying that the man who posted it does not have, quote, unquote, moves like bloomberg. the video was made in response to the pete buttigieg dance which went viral in november. rachel? rachel: thank you, ed. starting today, illegal immigrants can get a driver's license in new york state. several county officials have been sounding the alarm over what they say is a rocky rollout of the new
3:26 am
policy. our next guest says that this raises safety concerns and is now posting ice tip line signs outside the dmv offices encouraging people to report suspicious activity. michael kearns joins us now. welcome. >> good morning. rachel: good morning tell us what your concern is with this law? >> my concern is after 9/11 new york city put a prohibition on illegals having drivers licenses and now with the real i.d. in 2005, after we were attacked, there will be a gap from today until october 1st, that anyone who is here illegally can get into a federal building and can fly on our airplanes and can cross our borders. rachel: you are concerned with the policy but i also understand you are concerned with the implementation. you say that it's been kind of rocky and very minimal training for your staff. tell us about that. >> we have had an hour
3:27 am
webinar. when you go to the auditor, it's a very particular particulr technical transaction. we are now new york state people are here illegally will make a choice whether they can register to vote that used to be done by the front line clerks. i'm now going to have to accept a report cashed from a foreign country and foreign documentation, a foreign passport as authenticated documents. i, myself, as the clerk am going to have to do that. we used to rely on a third party, the federal government, to do that. so, they have diminished a new york state driver's license and we're very concerned for our safety and security because western new york is a border to canada. rachel: how do the members, i'm assuming that you have been getting feedback from the community about your signs, about the policy. how do they feel? do they feel like your position is going to help make them safer? are they comfortable with what new york state is putting forward on providing residences to illegals?
3:28 am
>> well, the sign was trademarked after 9/11 mca one of the most corrupt new york authorities. we have been discussing with them. they wrote a letter to me to cease and desist. we will keep signs up. >> we will let the public know. it's an anonymous tip line. we have been meeting with law enforcement. and new york state, this is all a power grab for the ballot box in new york. trying to give illegals the right to vote. we are not -- today, we are less secure than we were. and a driver's license is a privilege, but, also, it's for identification. and we know after 9/11. so my staff, i'm going right after there, we are going to be opening today. they are very concerned. but i, as the clerk, have to authenticate and validate that document. and i'm going to do that. i am going to personally review each and every one of those applications. rachel: in theory, are you saying with this driver's license somebody could go and vote in the election in
3:29 am
2020? >> absolutely. new york put front facing technology where they are asked if they are a citizen or not. it used to be done by the front line workers. if you did not have the proper documentation, we could stop you. now it's up to that person. so we are going to have border fraud in new york state and new york state -- voter fraud in new york state and given edict to stand down. i'm not standing down. i will do whatever i can to stop voter fraud. rachel: thank you, michael. very important topic. one i think a lot of people in new york are talking about, especially in your area. thank you for joining us and merry christmas to you. >> thank you so much. rachel: you got it. all right. well, remember a starbucks employee gave an oklahoma police officer a cup with the word pig on the label? well, now another starbucks refuses to serve sheriff's deputies in california. and it's one of the greatest rivalries in college football. army taking on the navy today in their 120th matchup. president trump will be there and so will impartial

stay. pete: shot of the morning. president trump set to carry on one of the military's oldest tradition today when he attends the 120th army-navy game. rachel: last year president trump took part in the coin toss before honoring our nation's heros. ed: president obama first attended the games in 2011 with vice president joe biden. and in 2004. gave an honorable talk. reminding them of the mental and women fighting in afghanistan. at that time. pete: let's bring in joey jones u.s. marine corps bomb technician and on the sidelines. >> good morning. pete: you are a marine so you call your guys the men's department of the navy. i get it. we have to note the fact that president trump has been president for three years of this game and army has won all three. >> yeah. that's going to change this year, guys. they're will be a victory. enjoy that and keep pushing along.
3:35 am
rachel: i knew you weren't impartial on this. this won't be the first time president trump has been at this game, correct? >> yes. so today we have got a pretty good list of guests. we don't have president trump on our list. maybe we will get a chance to see him. vichs arv.i.p.es are the player. go on and lead battalions and platoons and in the combat. first today navy is going to win a football game. ed: navy is 9-and 2. and army is 5-7. acting navy secretary thomas modally. roger staubach, of course, heisman trove winner u.s. naval grad long before the cowboys. jason van camp. warrior rising and ryan manion president sister of travis manion. a lot of v.i.p.es there.
3:36 am
what's it like the anticipation. i know hours before the afternoon game and stands will be empty behind you are just getting lined up. it has to be exciting. i have never been to one of these games. i have to get to one the next few years. >> on the field by myself right now. it's amazing. to look around and see in a few minutes probably 100,000 people here and two big football teams going to go out and really do us proud and show us the real football game with a run game. not just, you know, gunslinger offense we see from some of these i'm excited for it. pete: all the folks ed just mentioned will be on the program. you will be interviewing them super cool. honor the victims of the pensacola attack. correct? >> yes. yes. and so, you know, there is a lot of things going on in the world. a lot of tragedy that's hit this country and in a couple -- couple weeks ago two big tragedies from pearl harbor and pensacola those things will be in the forefront of everyone's mind. that's why we have this game
3:37 am
and that's why we have all the pomp and circumstance that goes along with it. it's not just for show it's to honor the fact that there is actual physical sacrifice and life given to serve this country and these football teams represent that when they take the field. pete: absolutely. ed: that's right, joey. pete: check in with you all morning. i have my army hat ready to go. we will continue this conversation. >> i have my navy scarf right here. pete: a little scarf. that's north going to work. you will have to update that. ed: we had this story in oklahoma a few weeks back where police officers pick it up and written pig on there and big controversy. thankfully the employee was fired. this is no way -- you sigh it right there on the screen -- to treat our men and women in blue. now chad bianco is saying two of our deputies were refused service as the starbucks. the anti-police culture repeatedly displayed by starbucks employees must end. we will get their responds
3:38 am
in a moment. what's your thought about this time right now just a couple moments ago we had the attorney general of arkansas on. one of their officers just killed. we see this all around the country at a time when we should be respecting men and women in law enforcement. they are treated shabbily. >> yeah. you know, if something like this happens once in an organization. it's an incident. when it happens over and over again, it's a culture problem. starbucks has a culture problem. these kind of actions are either overlooked or awarded from the corporate office down or at least not corrected when they happen. this is something that that organization needs to look at. colin kaepernick, not because he was protesting but because of the way he was representing the men and women trying to serve this country and keep us safe. and so here on the football field today, i'm reminded there are men and women outside this gate, keeping us safe, checking cars. making sure everyone here is safe. and those are the men and women that people at starbucks are disrespecting for no good reason.
3:39 am
and so, the juxtaposition of keeping us safe today in this story really shows you what these men and women go through. rachel: i think i remember there was a racial incident. i think starbucks shut all the starbucks down for some sort of training. ed: they did after an incident in philadelphia. rachel: starbucks did give a statement to abc news. they say there is simply no excuse for how two deputies were ignored. we are deeply sorry for that. ed: joey, we will be checking in with you all morning long. we appreciate you being there. we look forward to hearing from roger sta staubach and all the rest. ed: attacked by a gunman as he responded to a call about a potentially suicidal person. police say bradley cousinnens immediately opened fire on the officer. backup returned fire, killing the suspect. officer yo is in critical condition at this hour. he has a pregnant wife. in north korea, announced --

3:46 am
which could need hospitalization; skin problems; and severe bone joint, or muscle pain. are you ready? ask your doctor how prolia® can help strengthen your bones. ed: you have democrats laser-focused on impeachment. president trump trade deal with china. this is a large deal. it covers tremendous manufacturing, farming, a lot of rules regulations. a lot of things are covered. it's a phase one deal but a lot of big things are covered. i say affectionately the farmers are going to go out and buy much larger tractors because it means a lot of business. a tremendous amount of business. ed: this as the stock markets, as you can see all the indices there hitting major new records. will the democrats be able to compete with the president over the economy. joining me now senior fellow at the heritage foundation
3:47 am
steven moore. >> good morning. ed: start with china first. we have heard, this it seems to me before, that phase one is this close. now they are saying well, actually, we have the framework and it's moving forward. how real is this? >> first of all, let me just step back and say, you know, having worked for donald trump during the campaign, i think this past 8, 9 days has been the best week for donald trump that -- since he has been in the white house. think about this, ed. a week ago friday we have this blockbuster jobs report with 300,000 jobs. then tuesday, don't forget what happened then. donald trump announces he has a deal with nancy pelosi, with the u.s., canada, mexico trade agreement. workers' compensation, the stock market hits an all-time high and then thursday, he announces this trade deal with china. i mean, that's a pretty good week. and, it does make it very, very difficult, i think for democrat to compete with trump with this booming economy. the china trade deal i think is a first kind of baby step in the right direction to
3:48 am
get china to start behaving itself. this is not the end all and be all of what we are going to see with trade relationships with china. but it's good news. ed, you mentioned it. the markets love the news that at least for now we have a bit of a truce with china. that's a good thing for trump going into 2020. ed: look at the 2020 democrats scrambling to figure out how to talk about the trump economy while you look across the pond and what happened in the u.k. this week. even joe biden maybe woke up and said hang on, guys, here's his warning about what happened with boris johnson. look what happens when the labor party moves so, so far to the left. it comes up with ideas that are not able to be contained within a rational basis quickly. steven, seems like an obvious point to make. but is the democratic party going to listen? >> you know, one lesson of what happened when those british elections is once again, ed, how wrong the polsters are.
3:49 am
you remember what a lot of the polsters were saying in a couple days leading up to the election, oh my god, it's tightening and this could be razor thin. they were wrong on the election and wrong on boris johnson. the fact that boris johnson and trump are very much in alliance in terms of their agenda is another victory for trump. and i do hope that democrats learn a lesson. look, i hate to see this left ward direction of the democratic party. i would like to see two parties that are competitive on the economy talking about good ideas. but, frankly, i listen to elizabeth warren it's all about raising taxes and government take over the healthcare system. i don't think that's where the people are. ed: $52 trillion for medicare for all. as you laid it out last week and a half pretty strong for the president. we will see how it plays out in the days ahead. appreciate you coming in on a saturday. >> thank you. ed: still ahead, the countdown to christmas officially on. kurt the cyber guy is up

fourth of july parade. you blink and it's gone. three minutes long. the whole town is out there and such a display of prism and love of country. people have each other's backs in small towns. ainsley: you get to see all of the parades being a political spouse. pete: do you like. rachel: i love parades. i do. ed: it's funny hearing you talk about america and all the beautiful things coming together because the contrast to what we have seen play out on capitol hill, when you have got nancy pelosi as speaker say hing she is prayerful and focused on the constitution, all about america. and then it appears to be falling flat for democrats. she promised bipartisanship, but, instead, two articles of impeachment passed by the house judiciary committee yesterday along party lines. pete: yep. you know the vote. abuse of power, whatever that means. 23-17. second articles of impeachment obstruction of congress. not justice, congress. apparently congress is mad that the president wouldn't submit every witness they wanted.
4:02 am
23-17 as well. entirely predictable. the president had a press conference yesterday. totally undeterred and said what do we want for the senate? let's see. >> it's a scam. it's something that shouldn't be allowed. and it's a very bad thing for our country. and, you're trivializing impeachment. we did nothing wrong. so i will do long or short. i have heard mitch, i have heard lindsey. i think they are very much on agreement on some concept. i will do whatever they want to do. it doesn't matter. i wouldn't mind a long process because i would like to seat whistleblower who is a fraud. pete: wouldn't it be great to he soot whistleblower? by the way we know who he is. you can google it if you want at the very least he should be forced to come out and testify. rachel: do you think whether it's long or short that he will be -- >> i hope. so you probably won't get adam schiff, i get it or hunter biden, i get it.
4:03 am
the poison tree that began this should have to come forward. you have a right in this country to confront your accuser and in this case that's hot whistleblower is. what do you think? ed: certainly if you are going to get justice here. the president has said he wants to face his accuser from the beginning. the whistleblower started this whole thing we were told at some point we would hear from the whistleblower behind the screen. pete: at the beginning they said we definitely would. right, ed? the democrats said you will hear from the whistleblower. >> let's go to somebody who capitol hill. mike wall waltz. u.s. army former green beret commanders served in afghanistan for this great country. good morning, congressman. >> good morning. ed: i'm also struck weigh in on what pete was saying. adam schiff was talking for days maybe weeks about alleged bribery. they poll tested that among house democrats that it would sell better, they thought than quid pro quo, because they didn't think the american people could get it. then we get articles of impeachment. bribery is not mentioned. no crime is mentioned. >> right. what is the underlying
4:04 am
crime, right? so if there is no substance, then they rigged the process. no substance with the mueller report. so now yo you have rigged this process and go after personal attacks. you look at what they did to my colleague elise stefanik, the youngest female republican elected called her trashy. it was trending for days. now you are starting to see that shift to the senate where they are going to after personal attacks there as well. teivesd, we were elected here to get things done, to roll up our sleeves. i'm very excited about the defense bill i'm very excited usmca is coming to the floor. i think politically speaker pelosi knows she has to send her moderates home for christmas with something to point to besides years of nonstop investigation. pete: congressman, you asked the question and you know the answer. what's the crime in the crime is that president trump got elected in 2016 and they is been searching for a reason to undo it ever since.
4:05 am
>> in my view, the american people get to decide who the next president is. they decided hot president was in 2016, not pelosi, schiff and nadler and, at the end of the day, if you understand the good things that the president is doing for the country if you just don't like him personally, let the voters decide. that's our system. rachel: congressman, there is a new tactic, it's to undermine whatever is going to happen in the senate, specifically the strategy that senator mcconnell is going to use. take a listen. >> the case is so darn weak coming over from the house. we all know how it is going to end. there is no chance the president is going to be removed from office. ed: now democrats just to kind of tie that up into a nice little bow, they are jumping all over what mcconnell said about how he thinks the president will not be removed from office. listen to some democrats, some of your colleagues and we will get your reaction, watch. >> mitch mcconnell is a juror. so for the juror to be
4:06 am
coordinating with defense counsel doesn't make any sense. >> for mcconnell to be basically saying that the president is going to set the terms of the trial, that the president is going to get to decide the timetable and who is called? our founders would be rolling over in their grave. >> he should really take himself out of this kind of coordination with the white house. meeting with lawyers. he is undermining the credibility of the senate not just himself. ed: basically the majority leader of the senate can't lead the senate? >> here's what's interesting. is that, you know, the constitution calls for the vice president to recuse himself for obvious reasons. but, i have seen legislation moving that will call for the current senators, the democratic senators who are looking to run against the president and to recuse themselves. there is no way they could be impartial jurors. look, at the end of the day, they were talking about our founding fathers. our founding fathers intended impeachment.
4:07 am
intended the bar to be incredibly high and intended it to be bipartisan. that's why they put in our constitution that it requires two thirds of the senate, not this party line voting that you are seeing coming out of the house. and it clearly is not bipartisan. there is no underlying crime. and that's what leader mcconnell is getting at. there is just no way that 67 senators see this as worthy of being a high crime and misdemeanor, treason or bribery. pete: do they really think this is going to work? one of the last guys in that clip is richard blumenthal. do you remember when he served in vietnam. >> no. pete: i don't either. that's as legitimate as this process democrats pursuing in the senate. democrats in the house tried it. they thought prospects for impeachment were going to improve. do senate democrats think that the spaghetti a they are throwing against the wall is going to improve their case? >> no. they will see what the house democrats are seeing. independents, in particular, are fed up. they are frustrated. i think the dems are cried
4:08 am
wolf one too many times between mueller cohen, lewandowski, if it's not this, then it's that again, at the end of the day, what's going on with healthcare reform, with immigration, with transportation and infrastructure all the things the american people elected us to tackle up here, none of that is getting done. i think the senate is about to hear that, the senate democrats, in particular, loud and clear, just as the house has. rachel: congressman, did you go back into your district. you talk to the people there you are seeing what they are seeing which is democrats talking impeachment. sometimes climate change, things that really aren't affecting their lives. republicans trying to push for policies that actually help people with their bottom line, with their kitchen table issues. the house passed the national defense authorization act which established the space force which paid for family leave, for federal workers. talk to us about that and what that -- how that is translating back in your district. >> so i'm so excited to be at least a small part of
4:09 am
creating the sixth branch of military. army, navy, air force, marines, coast guard and now space force. people can make their jokes but this is serious. just as we created the air force in the 20th century to dominate air power. we need space to space power. every war game now the first shots are fired in space. and the russians and chinese know that we are vulnerable up there. and they have created the capability to take those assets out. this is very serious. and the president knows it and we are going to create this new branch additionally i'm very excited about what we are doing for gold star families. there was a provision in the tax code called the widows tax that taxed their benefits unfairly. these are families that are sacrificed literally everything for all of us. and they should get all of the benefits they deserve. but, importantly, there are
4:10 am
a lot of progressive liberal policies taking out like closing down guantanamo bay, ties the president's hands on the border and theories. often washington -- our veterans don't get what they deserve out of washington. but this bill we should be proud of. ed: show respect to those gold star families. congressman, i want to show respect to you. i know you are going to the army navy game with the president today. know army doesn't have much of at chance today. >> i have to tell you go army. beat navy. pete: we didn't even coordinate this. ed: someone has to root for navy today. have you players on both teams willing to die for this country. >> everybody on that field is ready to die for everybody watching. it's truly a special tradition and i'm fired up to be there today. rachel: awesome. pete: we appreciate it. thank you. ed: thanks, congressman. rachel: all right.

4:17 am
blame the people that promote this anti-cop rhetoric. they took stop question frisk away from the cops. they took enforcement out of law enforcement. the quality of life in new york city is diminishing. all you have to do is walk around the city and see it. their homeless is rampant. there is pan handlers everywhere. i was actually stopped about three months ago for the first time in 15 years, 18 years, 20 years, at the tunnels coming in to new york city all over again. ed: washing windows. >> going right back to where we were. when i saw this homicide. this homicide is reminiscent of the things that went on back in the 1970s, 80s and 90s and people ignore it. i just think the city is reversing. ed: michael bloomberg run for president he is running from the stop and frisk
4:18 am
policies he apologized. never should have done it? >> he promoted it right up until the day he left office. i honestly feel bad foray kelly. they continue the policies that giuliani put in place. it was aggressive policing and i do understand that mayor bloomberg enhanced the stop and frisk, those numbers substantially. probably too much. there wasn't enough oversight there. they can be abused. but, at the end of the day, the men and women in the nypd have to have the ability to do the job that they are here to do. and when you take the tools away to do that job, crime is going to rise. ed: coming at a time when law enforcement around the country, we have seen one law enforcement officer after another tragically killed. and that's very, very serious and tragic, obviously. and then what's almost a smaller thing in comparison is police officers rhetoric they face. go into starbucks, saw it in oklahoma, pig written on a
4:19 am
starbucks cup. disgusting and despicable. riverside county, california, the sheriff there writes two of our deputies refused service at starbucks, the anti-police culture repeatedly displayed by starbucks employees must end. i raise it because, like i say, it's much more tragic for someone to be killed. this kind of rhetoric it allows people to feel like they can just pick on the cops. that they don't matter. >> sheriff beangs bianco is rigt this anti-cop rhetoric part of the culture being promoted in our schools and mainstream media. young kids today have no respect for law and order and they have no respect for the men and women in the police departments around the this country. and i blame this leftist, socialist, communist ideology, psychology that is being promoted. ed: starbucks put out a statement saying they are working through all of this. >> this is constant.

4:38 am
poll or on some political consultant and if this is the end of my political career, at least i'm doing what i think is right and i'm basing my decisions on integrity. pete: here to debate is wilkes, attorney, g.o.p. strategist robert patillo and jason meister. trump 2020 advisory board. thank you all for joining us this morning. >> thank you. pete: alexandra, i will start with you, what does it say about the case democrats are made if members of their own caucus are still this weekend trying to figure out how they are going to vote? >> i think it shows a weakening case for impeachment. we see that playing out in the polls as well. that, you know, impeachment is now under water with independence. i think that some of these democrats in trump districts are really feeling the heat. a good example is my own congressman scott, jersey district. plenty of trump voters voted for trump in 2016 r plus three republican districts. is he really hearing it from
4:39 am
constituents back home. even after just voting for the inquiry. so i think that's why, you know, he is really looking at, you know, what played out in these hearings. seeing that there wasn't a lot of there there. and saying to himself, i do want to risk my seat on this vote? pete: robert, you look at the process. it's not just nancy pelosi but adam schiff has said in the past. if it's not bipartisan it's destructive. not only is this not bipartisan but democrats have already crossed over and have said they will be voting with republicans. are not alarm bells going off amongst democrats, including looking at the polls in swing states saying that this process is not going well for us or our country? >> i disagree. what we have to understand is you have 31 districts that president trump won that democrats were able to take those seats in 2018. even with that you are only seeing five to six democrats who are even considering crossing over and not voting in favor of impeachment. what i do think democrat leadership should have done better is articulate elevator pitch where people can understand and wrap this
4:40 am
in a constitutional framework. like republicans did in 1998 where they were not able to articulate the constitutional framework that justified the clinton impeachment and left the talking point what is the definition of is or this was about an extramarital affair with an intern and not about lying to congress. democratic leadership has done. if what we will see if this resolution passes and people go home to districts they will be able to explain to their voters why. pete: why are they explaining? these are the most ambiguous articles of impeachment we have ever seen and what is the case they are going to make? we don't like trump? >> there is absolutely nothing ambiguous about these articles. you take section 2. if the president is allowed to quash subpoenas and they do not have to turn over documents that means forever into the future you are abro gating congress' power of oversight over the president. pete: no other president has ever done that, of course, many other presidents, republican and democrat have taken issue with ways in
4:41 am
which congress has attempted to subpoena members and bring in members of the white house. but, jason, i have got to get to jason meister. speaking of a jason, if you tuned into c-span which no one does we caught this on the internet. jason also called in alabama. a democrat this is what he had to say about impeachment. listen. >> after watching the brett kavanaugh hearings, that was the most disgusting thing i seen. and now we have this impeachment crap. my party has now made me a democrat for trump. i'm going to back donald trump all the way. pete: jason, i have been to these rallies as well which are a political phenomenon of our moment. and when you talk to people, independents and democrats are pointing out and saying not only is the president getting things done but who am i going to vote for on the left? >> pete, it's unbelievable. that call that jason made was really summarized where we are. and there are 31 house democrats in trump-won congressional districts. those house democrats are
4:42 am
going to have to answer to their constituents come november 2020. and if you look at the facts, there is no crime, there is no witness. there is no evidence. there is no victim. president zelensky said there was absolutely no pressure. okay. i don't know any crime that was ever committed where the actual victim wasn't aware of it. and, they got the call. they got the meeting and they got the money. so this is unbelievable what's happening to this country. the democrats have weaponized the impeachment process. they have trampled on our constitution and they have done irreparable harm to our republic. i think the american people are going to speak up and speak out against this. i think it guarantees trump's re-election in 2020. pete: senate will get its voice where not rigged by democrats but instead controlled by republicans. we shall see whether it's a long or short process. alexandria, robert and jason, thank you all for being on the program. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you. pete: elizabeth warren's medicare for all plan would

4:47 am
americans and large corporations. ed: she has a plan. that's what they say, senator elizabeth warren has a plan for everything. trillion dollars medicare for all. could that target groups other than justth wealthy, particularly conservatives? rachel: new op-ed warns that warren's medicare for all could have side effects for g.o.p. leaning states. joining us now to discuss is national taxpayer fellow maddy. >> good morning good morning. ed: what is the big picture. >> the big picture is what you said elizabeth warren's plan is not going to be. broad based taxes needed to pay for this plan. i will give elizabeth warren credit. she has given the most details on how she would pay for this huge takeover of healthcare. that means 15 trillion with a t dollars in more taxes. and those are taxes that are not just going to hit the wealthy. you know, one of the reasons this tax increase is going to hit people in red states
4:48 am
is that the tax on employers. so, we know that a tax on employers is actually a tax on wages and that means low income workers actually bear the brunt of this kind of taxation more than even a higher income worker. so if you look at a state where job creation is fairly robust, there's a lot of opportunity for brunership, those are the states that are going to feel the burden of this new tax. every new employee for a business is going to be a big tax liability for that business less hiring and activity as a result. rachel: another feature of the plan she seems to be focusing on inequality. >> yep. rachel: do you think that inequality is the main problem with our system and is that the right way to fix all the things that we see that are wrong with our healthcare system here in america? >> this is a popular talking point for democrats. democrats are perfectly happy that if everyone is equal, even if they are worse off, they think you are better off just because that means inequality doesn't exist. this is the problem with healthcare, right? if you nationalize some of
4:49 am
the problems in healthcare, they get bigger, not smaller. rare than importing some of the free market reforms at the state level. medicare for all would take the worse problems we have and make them a federal problem. ed: when you look at the big picture as well, she keeps saying that the middle class will not be impacted. yet, when you are talking about a plan that might be costing something like $5 trillion, that's some of 5 -- $52 trillion, that's some of the estimates on warren's plan are there enough rich people to tax to pay for that. >> not even close. took 100 percent of the income millionaires are making in this country wouldn't be enough to fuel medicare for all. the real challenge for elizabeth warren has said repeatedly this won't hit the middle class and it absolutely. we it would in the form of this new employer tax. wealth tax, of course would have a huge impact on the stock market and people who have their pensions and retirements in the stock market would certainly feel that impact. so elizabeth warren says it's going to be targeted tax increase what she actually means tax increase on average americans and

5:03 am
ed: all right, that whole quid pro quo is interesting. that's where we started, the idea there was a quid pro quo. that was the allegation by democrats. then they poll tested that and said well the public doesn't understand that but bribery. that's something they can understand. and all of a sudden they come up with the articles of impeachment. bribery is not mentioned. no crimes are mentioned at all. this broad brush. rachel: bribery is not mentioned because people start thinking about hunter biden. pete: that probably is part of the calculation. rachel: it's interesting the president saying he doesn't mind having this be extended process in the senate. he wants these witnesses to come forward. especially the whistleblower. and i was talking to you about it. they brought the whistleblower up. and you think the others won't but they could at least. pete: i think. so first of all, he is not a whistleblower. he is a leaker. always had a partisan. can you google and look at it. ultimately bringing him in fronts of the senate is bringing the source of an entire impeachment process in front of the senate. we will see if you get the
5:04 am
other witnesses. rachel: what will happen when they put him up there, what does that prove that the president is a good -- pete: based on what we know about the person, people believe is a whistleblower, there are plenty of partisan motivations there which yet again shows this isn't a patriotic individual doing the best for his or her country. it's someone that had motivations to begin with you would think the democrats did this whole thing in church. they have been praying the whole time. thoughtful. rachel: it's the most laughable thing. you know, ed, i say this to you as a journalist. if republicans had gone into a process like this and started touting how they are praying about this and how prayerful and solemn, i mean, they would be ridiculed and mocked. ed: not just by the democrats but by some in the mainstream media. meanwhile not being called out enough over the fact that not just speaker pelosi but we checked the tape, adam schiff as well said this has to be bipartisan.
5:05 am
watch. >> i think the speaker is absolutely right. in its absence, impeachment becomes a partisan exercise doomed for failure. and, i see little to be gained by putting the country through that kind of wrenching experience as i have often remarked in the past. the only thing worse than putting the country through the trauma of an impeachment is putting the country through the trauma of a failed impeachment. pete: that was nine months ago. you might say adam schiff gave birth nine months later to a partisan impeachment that is the exact opposite. you take every word that he said and it's false what he laid forth in his process and now handed to the judiciary committee which now goes to the full house for some. ainsley: does that mean that he actually thought nine months ago it would be a bipartisan vote that there was something in the political era at that time that they thought that. pete: they thought they had the game in their side of the field.

our president, the one we put in -- that i voted for? are a we're mad. we are mad as hell. ed: mad as hell as they say to horn moderate democrat in oklahoma. these are the districts that helped deliver a majority for nancy pelosi. it may end up being the districts that deliver a majority for kevin mccarthy if he becomes speaker. pete: pelosi trying to be cute about this trying to put usmca on the same day it came forward and take credit for it? how do you meadumb do they thine voters are. not to mention job growth and china deal which would bring even more exports for our country. not to mention increases in pay for the military and the space force. by the way, they mocked ronald reagan about fdi as well which helped bring down the soviet union. the space force is looking forward at threats like china. you can make a joke about it now this is really serious stuff as michael waltz talked about.

5:10 am
ed: hear from him. he has gotten a warning for his fellow democrats. watch. >> the public clearly wanted a change in the u.k. the change was much more rapid and greater imagination tuesday than anyone had predicted. and i think it's sort of a catastrophic warning to the democratic party that you are just going to have to have somebody that can beat donald trump and that is not going to be easy. pete: this is going to be a warning, so who is going to beat donald trump, not me. i mean, that guy? rachel: competition for the quote, unquote moderate wing of the party is joe biden. he is taking advantage of the results from the boris johnson's win to say this. ed: look what happens when the labour party moves so, so far to the left. that is his message. fascinating. joe biden at that first debate in miami in june, he was more cautious about the whole like should we give

dangerous precedent. ed: i have heard critics say this week congress does a good job of obstructing its sufficiently as you know full well not getting anything done. the president got a bunch done this week congressman johnson. does that send a signal to nancy pelosi okay you are focusing on impeachment. i'm going to get a whole bunch of important things that i promised the american people done? >> absolutely. we were with the president last night at the white house. he is in very good spirits. he knows the record is outstanding. he can't wait to get back out on the trail and talk about all the greatest achievements. we are almost tired of winning as he said in 2016 on the campaign trail. this is ultimately going to backfire on the democrats. as you said a moment ago, ed, the founders warned against this single party impeachment because they knew that it would divide the country bitterly, and that's what's happening here and that's the great peril of all of this what is left in the wake of it. ed: short on time. 30 seconds each. congresswoman lesko coast first. now we see them going an senator mcconnell because he has talked to the white house about how a trial may
5:20 am
play out. they want him to recuse himself. what say you? >> well, you know, the democrats have no credibility left. this whole thing has been really unfair railroad job. and, you know, i don't know how anybody can believe what they say, quite frankly. it's very unfortunate. ed: congressman johnson, what about the democrats who are in the senate running for president and are supposed to be impartial jurors? >> yeah. i guess everybody has to recuse them selves. i think what mcconnell was talking about was the scheduling aspect of that how that is going to go down and how many weeks will be given to it. we will see how it plays out. ed: congresswoman we appreciates you spending part of your saturday with us. thanks for coming. >> in thank you. >> thanks, ed. ed: hackers got into a family's camera system and started talking to their kids. the mom is coming up next. most? > >> who is that? >> i'm your best friend. i'm santa claus. managing type 2 diabetes?

5:26 am
she heard music coming through the upstairs camera and the downstairs camera. so, she went upstairs to kind of figure out, you know, where the music was coming from. and after a few minutes of that, and they weren't getting the reaction, i guess, that they wanted from her, they started saying hello there. and, you know, she walked outside to say i can't hear you, because she thought it was her dad. and, you know, obviously it wasn't. and, you know, he started saying, you know, what you hear about santa claus and so, you know, at that moment you can see like her whole demeanor change and she is just like -- that's when she screams for me. even hearing me now gives me chills hearing her scream mommy like that. rachel: ring says no it's not us. it's yahoo and weak password. what's your response to what they are saying? >> i think my main response is even if it was -- it
5:27 am
wasn't a weak password, first of all, but the thing is, you know, even -- i have had a lot of people reach out to me that work in tech and things like that. even if, you know, a lot of people have weak passwords and it shouldn't be that easy to get in with a security company that has a name like ring. that's my main response is even if it was, you need to have more of a response because this is like happening to people all over. rachel: a quick read of the statement from ring. while we are still investigating this issue, we are able to confirm this incident is in no way related to a breach or compromise of rings security. let me ask you this, you had the camera in your daughter's bedroom. is that something now that this incident has happened that you are like, you know what? maybe parents should rethink the idea of having the camera in the bedroom. i'm a parent, too. that is scary. what happened to you? >> yeah, it's terrifying to me. i mean, i own -- i have a daughter with a medical condition, i really wish
5:28 am
that i could, you know, even still have the cameras, you know, i wish i could feel secure enough to do that, but i definitely think they need to re-think that. and if you have to have it in the bedroom, i feel like you should -- if you are not -- if they are not asleep or something like that, unplug it, turn it towards a wall unless you absolutely have to have it on. because you just never know. i only had these for four days. rachel: er incidents in nebraska that people have had similar experiences. thanks for sharing. this there are a lot of parents a lot more aware now because have you done. this hopefully ring and whatever else is happening there that's making this incidents happen will fix it because it's certainly frightening to any parent to know that strangers could come in to their house via these cameras. so thank you so much and good luck with everything. >> thank you for putting it out there. thank you. rachel: thank you. merry christmas. >> merry christmas. >> he is leading the charge to impeach president trump.

[laughter] ed: in the meantime impeachment captivating the nation maybe not in a good way for democrats. we decided to look back at adam schiff and something people have passed over when he was first running for congress and run against republican incumbent jim rogan one of the prosecutors in the clinton impeachment. schiff said i think impeachment for most people in this district is only the most graphic illustration of an incumbent who has put the national partisan ideological fights ahead of representing his district. people want to decide this on the basis of who is going to serve our community. do you think the trump campaign should take that and use that as a template for their ads? let's get something done, folks? >> yeah. i would say that, ed, under
5:35 am
normal circumstances but the thing with schiff is you have to triage his lies. like this lie, he is a hypocrite on impeachment. where does this rank on schiff's lies? his lies are so produce found there are better schiff lies to use against him. this may be the least of schiff's lies. think about it. he's only lied and gotten busted, nailed to the wall on three of the biggest lies possibly of our generation. schiff told us and swore that spy gate a total hoax. he was wrong. he told us collusion was real. and he had evidence. he was wrong. he initiates an impeachment against the president we had no contact with this whistleblower. he was wrong. this guy is a liar. and even worse, he attacked people who told the truth. remember when he -- he verbally attacks devin nunes for the nunes memo my? now we have the ig report
5:36 am
and found out devin nunes memo was right and adam schiff's was totally wrong. pete: so many we can't keep track it. had to be bipartisan otherwise it's divisive. started the committee hearing by readings from a transcript that was totally made up about the phone call. i mean, it never ends with this guy. no wonder the numbers are where they are. >> pete, and the media never holds him to account. why are they still having this guy on and take him seriously? in normal times this guy, i'm not kidding, would be a pariah in his party. he is on tape saying openly i have evidence of collusion. he was on fox nation on tucker carlson looking into the camera. i have evidence -- he had none, he made the whole thing up. memo read in the media. schiff memo about how the dossier was substantive. how that's not only the thing the fbi used. it was all a lie.

6:17 am
judicial watch's president, talk a little bit about christopher steel in particular and how devastating the horwitz testimony was. >> it shows that christopher steel was being paid $95,000 by the fbi at the same time judicial watch reported how he was paid by the fbi, now we know that is the number and this is at the same time the clinton dnc gang is painted to get dirt on donald trump. this is a joint operation. the fbi leaking the fact that they were spying on the trump operation to christopher steel a month before the election while he is still working for hillary clinton's fusion gps so you have the fbi intervening in the campaign. when you have that type of criminal unprecedented activity you have a lot of errors and omissions to put it charitably. >> what about what james comey told bret baer that he didn't think the steel dossier was the

central part of getting the fisa warrant, it was one little thing but they had this other corroboration. >> information by people like james comey on this issue another leadership of the obama administration further suggests they had something to hide it is further impetus in my view for significant criminal investigation. the last ig report confirmed james comey use the dossier to confront donald trump or president-elect trump in a spy operation. he wasn't providing him a heads up in a defense even briefing like the fbi was supposed to have done with the trump campaign in 2016 he went to the newly elected president to see how he would react, comey personally was doing this type of spy operation on the incoming president of the united states and he knew at the time the dossier was bunk.

school districts are inclined to block religious-based clubs for some reason but equal access is pretty clear, if you have student clubs you have to allow religious clubs too. >> what was the rationale? what did your principal say to you specifically about why they wouldn't let you start this club to begin with? >> the message was a public school couldn't support a religious club and if it was on school grounds they would be supporting and it could be seen as exclusive. >> is what the school district said to us when we asked for a statement, the district recognizes the rights of student initiated non-curricular groups to organize and meet him coordinate with the equal access act, we anticipate this matter will be resolved as per the equal access act so ultimately you will have a chance to have a christian club in every country, this is freedom of religion in this country and that's all you want. >> i think you are a brave girl and your parents should be proud of you and thank you for having first liberty that

6:33 am
let's get to steve scalise joining us from louisiana, good morning, sir. >> good to be with you. >> what is your sense of where we are because democrats started with the idea that there was bribery, quid pro quo, they poll tested all of that and here they are with articles of impeachment, broadbrush, no specific crimes allegedly committed. >> the biggest problem is they never started with facts, that the every other impeachment began where there was an actual crime committed, there has never been a crime in this case. they tried to find a crime starting with the mueller investigation. it has been very clear that you are seeing through it this whole impeachment inquiry, this is a political vendetta, this is all about them not liking the fact that donald trump was duly elected president in 2016 and they are scared he is going to win again because he has been delivering on his promises but that's not why you impeach a president. that's why we have an election next year, let the voters decide. if there are no facts there's
6:34 am
nothing to impeach this president on. the articles of impeachment that just came out confirmed that and instead of moving on to things people really care about like lower drug prices in securing the border, like the radical base has demanded this the day donald trump elected to office and they can't help themselves. >> nancy pelosi got her speakership by having a lot of moderate democrats get elected in trump districts. here is a congresswoman out of oklahoma, kendra horn getting the wrath of voters. >> 2018 has been concentrated on impeach donald trump. we want congress to get back to work for the american people. it is not your responsibility to take somebody that was duly elected out of office. i think you are in a lot of trouble if you vote for impeachment. >> where was it ever clear to our president, the one we put,
6:35 am
that i voted for, we are mad. >> she is not fighting back. she is taking it and we wonder where democrats will vote, what does it say about the veracity, the strength of the case democrats have made? >> kendra horn, and the same thing a lot of other democrats are hearing, hearing from people who say you ran things were going to be different, you work with everybody and all you have done is have this obsession against donald trump, he didn't do anything. the phone call, volodymyr zelinsky said there was nothing wrong but because you don't like the result of an election and are more afraid of your radical left base in washington then constituents who elected you back home. that is the real reckoning. every one of these democrats, the clear vote is now, you vote
6:36 am
against impeachment on these articles because there was no law broken. the constitutional standard is high crimes and misdemeanors, this is not even a traffic violation but they are going to do it not because of the crime but because they are afraid of the repercussions from the radical left like aoc up in washington. it is a sad day that it has come to this. >> you are trying to get things done with the vote and figure out how to move the president's agenda forward. a pretty good week with the defense though we have been talking about, family leave and other issues he has been pushing but the fact that nancy pelosi within an hour of announcing the way forward on impeachment crushed to take credit for usmc a and that trade deal is that a sign democrats are desperate to try and show they've done something other than impeachment? >> not only desperation but fabrication. donald trump worked for over a
6:37 am
year to negotiate a better trade deal with mexico and canada. he's the one who negotiated that, not nancy pelosi and that should've been law months ago. the beginning of this year it should have been law and over 160,000 new jobs would be created. people wonder what the price of impeachment, it is trampling over the constitution in the standard of impeachment at all the things that have not gotten done like usmc a, like lower drug prices and that is the problem that they haven't delivered for the american people that donald trump has delivered and continues to. >> maybe passing usmc might be one of the only good things to come out of all this. wouldn't have happened if not for impeachment and they felt the pressure. >> you mentioned parking tickets, motorcade but are not violate any policies or we might get a third article of impeachment. thanks for your time, we appreciate it. america christmas. we are going to turn out to your headlines.
