3:31 pm
very distinctive to observe. >> mike: there with this being 2019, of course, the twitter back and forth between the person of the united states in the house speaker. speaker pelosi in the racks are clear and every witness told the same story despite the president's attempt to cover up. he abused his power for his own personal game and to defend the democracy, president trump firing back and so interesting to see nancy pelosi demanding fairness from senate majority leader mitch mcconnell when she presided over the most unfair hearing in the united states congress. with that, let's bring in the panel. matthew continetti, funding editor of "the washington free beacon," alexander traffic, national political reporter from the associated press, and mollie hemingway senior editor at "the federalist" paddle, welcome, good to have you all. your thoughts on the war on the legislative and the executive branch. >> was interesting, nobody agrees about the facts and she also says that president trump
3:32 pm
tried to cover up and it's interesting because it's true. i don't think i can really disagree about the facts and plate and what the degree about is about the defense, the beachs not done a good job with the people outside the carcass. she's doing her best not to take what she has an leverage into more, but i'm not sure how well, it's working. i'm not claiming that president trump covered up particularly the best argument given that whatever else you want to say about what he's doing, he released all the information immediately before it even began. it's not an argument that probably a lot of americans will find compelling. >> it seems though that nancy pelosi is in the position to hold impeachment articles is getting to donald trump's head to some extent, this means he can't get acquitted of the charges which is likely the outcome of the hearing. the more that she withholds this and delays of the process, the more time he's in limbo.
3:33 pm
the problem for democrats, this could end up backfiring if they extend the process for too long. it already looks a little bit political for her to be holding on to the impeachment articles and not send them to the senate. the longer that she does continue to hold onto them, the more that republicans and her m.o. events are be able to question why argue delaying the process and how political can you make a question mark >> mike: to your point, bernie sanders who seems to be surging in some of the recent polling may be stuck on the senate floor if they don't get that calendar moving. >> not just bernie sanders, amy klobuchar, they don't get to back to the campaign trail. >> called the bluff, constitution gets that impeachment and they get the senate and still power for the child. that's not where we have, the trial, were nuts and were having a child because nancy pelosi has not transmitted the articles of impeachment. there's nothing in the constitution about the transition being necessary and
3:34 pm
that's in the senate rules. it's within mcconnell's power to say i'm going to hold the trial on this date in january and if you don't give me the articles of impeachment by then, i will ask mike at majority to change the rules so we can begin the trial on long terms. i think people accept the decision. >> mike: at the winter white house and all the buzz in washington, what will the speaker do with the articles of impeachment, well, texas republican michael burgess says there's not a holland of drama. >> we have the story and there in a two-thirds of the senators are willing to convict and remove the president and it's going to be hard anyway because it's election year and people tend to less well together during election year there from opposite parties. that's already the backdrop for the backstop of this. >> mike: are in generally enjoy, you expect speaker pelosi
3:35 pm
to send the articles over along with the impeachment? >> i think she will send them over, but it's a little bit difficult. she's been two months telling us how urgent it was, at such a need that we have two decapitate the executive branch. the very extreme constitutional measure, and only done three times in american history and then she says never mind, were going to go on vacation it's not that urgent, not a big deal. it's a little hard for her own messaging giving what she's been claiming for months. >> not only do we get to see the issue therein, they could potentially overplay the hand by holding onto the articles for too long. if you get out of washington, they just want to see impeachment done and over with and congress getting back to business. i was in the trumpet district and i went last weekend and i was hearing from voters, this is a sham, this is a witch hunt and we want them to get back to issues like trade. sort of economic issues. the longer that you hold on to
